Track Name: finish what i started
i give up too much
i give up too much
i give up too much
i give up too much

like the football team
like all those dreams
i give up too much
i give up too much

not this time
not this time
maybe the next time but
not this time

this time i'm gonna finish what i started
this time i'm gonna finish what i started

everytime i think i have things together
they fall apart again
every time i think i have a friend
they end up leaving in the end
if my life were a tv show
it would've been cancelled several seasons ago
bad reviews from the a.v. club
no syndication residual stubs

but if i can make it through these next few months
everything will be ok
every night has it's day
i'll be okay

i give up too much
i give up too much
i give up too much
i give up too much

like the football team
like all those dreams
i give up too much
i give up too much

not this time
not this time
maybe the next time but
not this time

this time i'm gonna finish what i started
this time i'm gonna finish what i started

Track Name: hill cemetery
cemetery on a hill
they took us and they let us
run all through the fields
our entire 4th grade class
gravestone rubbing
lying in the grass

the first of us to go
they found them on the side of the road
there was nothing they could do
that morning in the icu
tributes starting pouring in
for the person they called their friend

they buried them up on the hill
where we use to run and play through the fields
our entire 4th grade class
gravestone rubbing
lying in the grass
Track Name: feel alright
laying in the grass
rafters buses will be leaving soon
the good times never last
although i always hope they do
cant remember the last time
things felt this way
though i’m sure it will be gone
by the end of the day

can’t be in this room alone
its like what they use to say
about the twilight and how
it’s the loneliest time of day

can't go out tonight
'cause i went out last night
if i went out both nights
i wouldn't feel quite right
so i'll sit alone
stare down at my phone
wait for the blinking light
then maybe i'll feel alright
maybe i'll feel alright
maybe i'll feel alright
maybe i'll feel alright
Track Name: be a ghost
i’m going to be a ghost sooner than you know it
wandering around my old haunts again
an apparition floating without a friend
i hope i’m not trapped to my old high school
i never want to see those walls again
i want to be where i want when i transcend

i hope i like my ghost clothes
i hope i’m somewhere only i know
maybe then i’ll be at peace
or by myself at least.

i’m going to be a ghost sooner than you know it
roaming around my stomping ground again
unable to make my proper amends
i hope my unknown visitors leave me alone
turn off their their cameras, leave me off tv
i don’t want to be who they want me to me.

i hope i like my ghost clothes
i hope i’m somewhere only i know
maybe then i’ll be at peace
or by myself at least.
