Track Name: Assisted Living
-Chorus-
Everyday is a holiday
everyday is a holiday
if everyday is a holiday why aren't we celebratin yet?

-Verse-
Upper in the mornin, downer in the evenin
Pour another potion to keep me riding the wave

Little sister got a sugar rush, older brother caught a quick buzz.
Mom and daddy had to take the bus after a night on the town.

Chorus

Spirits when we love make, spirits in our heartache.
Assisted living in the home of the brave.

We start em at an early age, that little piggie got em good grades.
Yeah when the tempo keeps on quickenin you gotta pick up the pace.

----

They gave me detention for looking too close at perception.
Therapist said amphetamine could get me back in the game.

Upper in the mornin, downer in the evenin.
Assisted living in the land of the free.

Cuz everyday is a holiday
why aren't we celebratin yet?
Track Name: Because You're Gone
Back then were the days that we miss and we all wanna go, go, go
back then, back then

Trapped inside of photographs while you stumble
Speak only in soft tones while you mumble
Living in a life that's only borrowed
til' tomorrow comes. Sweep, sweep you away.

Floating over pages while they crumble
reaching out to grab ahold of wonder.

As it blows away, as it blows away.

Time rolls on, you keep wondering why,
why the day became so long.
I guess it's just because, because you're gone.


Back then were the days that we miss and we all wanna go, go, go
back then, back then.
Track Name: Good Friday
When we fell away how I could not believe
the sentiments we held as sane.

Something in disguise crept into our designs
and pulled apart our ties in frays.

Well nothing recreates the friendship and the faith
of precious seasons left to fade

when we could change our minds a hundred different times
but nothing could divide our fates.

-----

They're saying to play it safe only to evade or pay the price.
Sterilize and preside over your own games.

Don't complicate my pain, leave me to reside in black and white, it's fine.
I won't care at all, no I don't care at all.

-----

When we fell away how I could not believe
the sentiments we held as sane.

Something in disguise crept into our designs
and pulled apart our ties in frays.

Now hold them in disdain who cauterize our veins
when pity guaranteed us fame.

------

To be wounded in love commands the skies to weep for their own,
for their own.

To be rooted with blood was not divine mistake and there's no fault
of our own.
