Track Name: Flood
I'd hold you down and make you stay,
but all my strength has found its way to the floor
I'd say don't go, but this tangled weight
has found its way right onto the floor
The weight of you, the weight of me,
well summer's here but where are the things
we'd promised we would be?
So I'd let you down and swim around,
before I would catch you and you’d live inside my baggy all day.

You caught me off guard, but I’m driving you home
And I’d crash this car, before settling down

Don't stay, I'm running away from this
And all of my friends exist for this;
to make me barren and callous, I can't stand it
This was me by August, our summer, no longer;
this was me dishonest, distraught out on nothing
I destroyed my honor, no longer a pure-blood;
I swept through with anger and drowned you in the flood

You caught me off guard, but I’m driving you home
And I’d crash this car, before settling down
I clutch the wheel, I'm off the road
Smashed all my debts through the rear door

Ignored the silence when I came home, I came home
(and it only gets better than this)
Ignored the signs of how I used you, I miss you
(and it only gets better than this)
Track Name: Eighteen (Acoustic)
I'm sipping on the rest of the pinnacle you left
The night before you died
And were finishing off your smokes that you'd force down our throats
When we all stepped outside
You're gonna stay eighteen forever
I'm gonna stay this way forever
And things just aren’t getting better

And maybe I could see you, you're thirty feet away
Off the edge of this bridge, a jump and I’m on my way
Because I'm really in need of one of those talks
Like sitting in the back of deep run park
Or drinking what was left of our summer’s stash of beer
Sitting in the light of the pool where we laughed as kids,
When we had no fear

When you sit for hours in a 10x12 room
You start thinking things that you wish weren't true
Like you're gone and I'm done with forcing it on them
That I'm never ever moving on and
I'm always caught up in this recurring dream
Where I move to listen to that Joyce Manor CD
With you again and you'd look up at me
And say this is why I’m dead; I’m the one that's guilty,
I do it to myself
Look what you did with yourself
Track Name: Flood (Acoustic)
I'd hold you down and make you stay,
but all my strength has found its way to the floor
I'd say don't go, but this tangled weight
has found its way right onto the floor
The weight of you, the weight of me,
well summer's here but where are the things
we'd promised we would be?
So I'd let you down and swim around,
before I would catch you and you’d live inside my baggy all day.

You caught me off guard, but I’m following you home
And I’d crash this car, before settling down

Don't stay, I'm running away from this
And all of my friends exist for this;
to make me barren and callous, I can't stop it
This was me by August, our summer, no longer;
this was me distraught out on nothing
I destroyed my honor, no longer a pure-blood;
I swept through with anger and drowned you in the flood

You caught me off guard, but I’m driving you home
And I’d crash this car, before settling down
I clutch the wheel, I'm off the road
Smashed all my debts through the rear door

Ignored the silence when I came home
Ignored the signs of how I used you
And it only gets better than this
