Track Name: ball / chain
And it's a gray day
A freeway
And I can't say what's wrong
And a scene change
To a suitcase in a room

I never said I'm waiting
I never said although I tried my best
I'm the one that's at fault
And I feel the same as I felt that day
But somehow I'm okay
And you aren't

You've blamed fate
I've blamed the ball and chain so far
Track Name: Open Season
Too late to the gate I know
I paid my ten can I get in
You let my friends all go
And I've been turned down before
But I won't wait here for her anymore
No

She don't care
Summer love affair
Blazing a slow slope down a hill
And I know if I don't leave tonight
Then she will

Too slow for the road on foot
My car's in park but she won't give
Me a second look
And I can't see through the heat
This open season is killing me

She said don't force it

She don't care
Summer love affair
Blazing a slow slope down a hill
And I know if I don't leave tonight
Then she will

There's no shame in giving up
This game's gone on long enough
One more loveless summer love
And this one's done
It's done

Too hot in the parking lot
Too much activity here after dark
Fingernail moon
And I still love her like I used to
Track Name: Inclemency
All my friends live in the mountains
Above the injured air
Way up high where it still snows sometimes
And it's on occasion clear

Who will save me come a hurricane
I feel my little boat begin to sink

I'm taking sand
To make some dry land
And put some ground under my feet
It's only been a year
And grass used to grow here
But now it's ten feet deep

The waterline's too high
The cloud ceiling's too low
Horizon's infinite gray line
Marked by one little boat

Who will save me come a hurricane
I feel my little boat begin to sink

I'm giving up
I tried to fight back
I'm swimming towards a sound
Swallowed up
And taken down
What good is one more drowned

Who will save me come a hurricane
I feel my little boat begin to sink
Track Name: Getaway
Split the difference
Slit the linen words
Pull apart the threads we're weaving
And dull your sword
Fight for a breath of extra time
In a summer when time isn't on my side
Time isn't on my side

Make a promise
Tell me you won't try
To let me go like a balloon
As soon as you arrive
I tried to be grounded
To stay tied down
But you just look so little to me now
So little to me now

I meant to tell you
A minute in my car
I never meant to even miss you
Or fall this far
If you're out of sight here
You're in my mind
The getaway wasn't easy this time
Track Name: Erika
The phone woke me up
Still drunk and humming that song
I can't fall for you
If you're slurring your words
And I'm warning you
I'm concerned I might've been wrong
And you knew
And I just watched it sink down, down, down

I mixed it up
Fragments of fiction come true
You screaming by
You forget what we did
As if I could care
You said I'm not allowed to
But I'm trying hard
I think I'm getting it

Erika don't feel so obligated please
Cause I'm not that into you
And Erika if you've got reservations leave
I've had my reservations too

A dead line tonight
It's a shame your number's changed
But you meant it to
Didn't you?
So what I meant to say through the radio waves
They wouldn't play
Not that I thought that they would

Erika don't feel so obligated please
Cause I'm not that into you
And Erika if you've got reservations leave
I've had my reservations too
