Track Name: What You're Made Of
i see mothers and fathers
i see leaders and healers
i see thinkers and artists
i see our friends scared shitless

when they say you're ready, say you're ready now
it's your turn, it's your turn
let's see what you're made of
let's see what you're made of when they say you're ready
say you're ready now
it's your turn, it's your turn
let's see what you're made of
let's see what you're made of when they say...

i see everything moving
i see you standing still
we can change these shallow waters
we can make improbable waves

when they say you're ready, say you're ready now
it's your turn, it's your turn
let's see what you're made of
let's see what you're made of when they say you're ready
say you're ready now
it's your turn, it's your turn
let's see what you're made of
let's see what you're made of when they say

our greatest fear is not that we're inadequate
our greatest fear is power beyond measure
our greatest fear is nothing compared to regret that
our greatest fear has been holding us back

we'll go from being locked behind our doors
to being part of something more
from seeing things that we could change
to seeing lives that we could save
from spewing all our hate and doubt
to trying to suck the poison out
of everything that's broken
of everything that's broken when we say...
Track Name: Start The Car
i can't see the road ahead of me
it's all blocked with your dreams
and i can't breathe the air around me
you steal it all when you speak
and it's al been said before
but i can't just say this anymore

and all my traveling's been in my head
it never gets me far
my friends are either gone or dead
it shouldn't be so hard
to get up and start the car

i can't see what a new place holds for me
as long as it's new i know that 's all i need
and i can't believe the things they tell me
they're too different from what i've seen
it's been through my head before
but i can't just think this anymore

and all my traveling's been in my head
it never gets me far
my friends are either gone or dead
it shouldn't be so hard
to get up and start the car

do you know what we could be
if we only took the time to let these dreams breathe?
well i've seen what we could be
if we only took the time to let these dreams breathe
and it's time for me to leave

and all my traveling's been in my head
it never gets me far
my friends are either gone or dead
it shouldn't be so hard

my traveling's been in my head
it never gets me far
my friends are either gone or dead
it shouldn't be so hard
to get up
to get up and start the car
Track Name: Stand Up
look at you, you're lost in your reflection
it's simple, such perfection in your mind
but no one listens, no one hears you make a sound
you think that's it's so simple, speak and they will listen
maybe they might listen if they heard you speak at all

stand up, you're ready
stand up, get steady, go
believe in what you'll be
stand up, you're ready
stand up, get steady, go
forget this place and me
forget this place and me

look at you, you're lost in your reflection
it's simple, such perfection running through your head
but have you ever thought of this out loud?
speak, the hour is upon you
can you find your trust in others?
find your brothers now

stand up, you're ready
stand up, get steady, go
believe in what you'll be
stand up, you're ready
stand up, get steady, go
forget this place and me
forget this place and me

we're gonna make damn sure hearts burn
we're gonna make damn sure hearts burn
we're gonna make damn sure hearts burn
we're gonna make damn sure hearts burn

(we're gonna make damn sure hearts burn)
we'll burn a hole in every town that we go through
(we're gonna make damn sure hearts burn)
we'll burn a hole in every town that we go through
(we're gonna make damn sure hearts burn)
we'll burn a hole in every town that we go through
(we're gonna make damn sure hearts burn)
we'll burn down every town that we go through

stand up, you're ready
stand up, get steady, go
believe in what you'll be
stand up, you're ready
stand up, get steady, go
forget this place and me

(we're gonna make damn sure hearts burn)
stand up, you're ready
stand up, get steady, go
(we're gonna make damn sure hearts burn)
believe in what you'll be
(we're gonna make damn sure hearts burn)
stand up, you're ready
stand up, get steady, go
(we're gonna make damn sure hearts burn)
forget this place and me

believe like hearts believe in you
just 'cause it's past, don't make it not true
Track Name: Call It What You Want
i choke on cigarette smoke
as i call your name
i say, you're different, you seem different
you shrug and say, you taste the same
now my hands are aching
my nerves are shot
you say, impress me, impress me, undress me
i'm screaming, this is all i've got

and i, i'm right
and i, i know i'm right

i sleep with shadows
i lay down with ghosts
i've piled so much up around me
except for what i need the most
some things got broken
but i'm not breaking down
my brother told me, you're a fighter
i'm proving it this time around

and i, i'm right
and i, i know i'm right

i'm not looking for a repeat, i'm not looking for easy
i'm not looking for a repeat, i'm not looking for easy tonight

and if you work me over one more time
i swear to god i'm walking out
and if you leave me standing here alone
if that's your plan, i'll just leave now

and if you work me over one more time
i swear to god i'm walking out
and if you leave me standing here alone
if that's your plan, i'll just leave now

'cause i'm not looking for easy tonight
Track Name: Here For You
oh, you know the way you say you're leaving
oh, you know that's only out of fear
oh, you know the way you feel you're sinking
oh, you know you just forgot i'm here, saying

please don't lose you
don't lose the music in you
please don't lose you
the whole world's here for you

oh, you know the way you're feeling lonely
oh, i'm here, you'll never be without
oh, you know the way you feel you're different
oh, you know i love you 'cause you stand out

please don't lose you
don't lose the music in you
please don't lose you
the whole world's here for you
Track Name: hrtbrkngdmrng
my heart skips a beat whenever i see you
it leaps from my chest and lands in my throat
but it’s nothing good, it’s not a good feeling
it’s the tightness that comes right before you choke

and you flip the switch
i become the old me every time you come around
always on guard, looking out for a repeat
of the six months i spent underground

but i’d still like to know
what you know
about why we burned out so damn slow

there were those times after the end
when we went and killed everything again
and i took in stride all of the secrets
and the sideways looks from all your phony friends
i hadn’t learned ‘til you spelled it out
the difference between making love or keeping warm
but i realize now, when it came to your love
i’d have killed for the leftovers, any way shape or form

but i know
i don’t care any more for just keeping warm
i know
i’m still only your leftovers, taking new shape and form
