Track Name: Three AM (full band)
another three am
in this lit, lonely room
somehow I believe the clock could stop turning
another bored, frozen night
slim chance to fall asleep soon
could these bags under my eyes be my undoing

maybe it's my fault that I'm up so late
maybe it's because of things I thought of today
maybe I'll never think of the right words to say
but regardless, the morning seems so far away

I found another hole in my shirt
but these stains on my mind
are the real reasons I'm awake tonight
it's unhealthy, I'm sure
to be conscious weekends at a time
to be this alone with just your thoughts, it just isn't right

maybe it's my fault that I'm up so late
maybe it's because of things I thought of today
maybe I'll never think of the right words to say
but regardless, the morning seems so far away
Track Name: Homeward Bound
stuck inside my head
I'm over the odd years
after finally letting go
of these mistakes I thought I'd cleared
I found some dying shred
of hope that these blood, sweat, and tears
might bring me home someday
bring me home to you, my dear

sixteen hours deep
driving away all my fears
my tea's gone cold again
and this rest stop has no beer
so i'll call home again
and pretend that you're near
I just hope you pick up the phone
your voice is all I need to hear

I'm homeward bound
someday I know I will be safe and sound

I'm homeward bound

I'm sick of being told
how I will die
I'm sick of being told
that all love is a lie
I'm sick of tying the ropes
but never saying goodbye

my work was hell this week
my bones they just will shake
I'm over that shit, so sick of whining
these hills, they're not that steep

I've given up on yesterday
and I'll work to pave my way

I'm homeward bound
someday I know I will be safe and sound

I'm homeward bound

loneliness is universal
but hopelessness, that shit is personal
why should I want it?
that fucking thought is toxic
they say every day is a gift to you
so please just tell me what to do
when every day I'll wake to find
I'm losing every piece of mind

I've given up on yesterday
and I'll work to pave my way

I'm homeward bound
someday I know I will be safe and sound

I'm homeward bound
(they say every day is a gift to you
so please just tell me what to do)

(I've given up on yesterday)
someday I'll be safe and sound
