Track Name: A Day
The Lawsuits - A Day

There might come a day
When you don't turn your head away
Instead you hold on to the mood
And I do that too

There might come a day
When you're too old to say you loved me when
I wrote this down for you
And I'm too old too

We might see changes in subtle ways

Walking and talking
Over and over again
Walking and talking
Over and over again
Walking and talking
Again
Track Name: Do Ya
The Lawsuits - Do Ya

By a train near a station
Not proud of my frustration
when you fucked off most of my friends

I tell you I need to feel sadness
Surrounded by the madness
Till I don’t have a minute to myself
Please

Do you love me
Do you Do you own me
Do you know me
Do you do you want me again
Do you owe me
Do you do you want me again

Someday it’ll come clear
Stood up to face the old fear
Broke by the time that I’ve spent

I tell you I dream to steal the moments
Floodgates have shown us
nothing built can’t collapse
Please

Do you love me
Do you Do you own me
Do you know me
Do you do you want me again
Do you owe me
Do you do you want me again

By a train near a station
Not proud of my frustration
We had called off most of the bets

I tell you I need to feel sadness
Surrounded by the madness
Till I don’t have a minute to myself
Please

Do you love me
Do you Do you own me
Do you know me
Do you do you want me again
Do you owe me
Do you do you want me again
Track Name: Romeo
The Lawsuits - Romeo

See the levels of the labyrinth
Get lost within your head
Even in knowing how to get back home
It doesn’t guarantee a bed

That’s why you never cross a bitch in heat
That’s why you never stop or stare
In being asked why you’re in second place
You think someone else put me here

Why all the women in the strip mall
Believe in what they save
Contrary to a common thought
A better strategy is to beg

Well, I ran into a Romeo
He offered me a drag
He says a leader’s job is being told
Oh, and the coke is in the bag

Walked past the square road sign
Next to the towns’ largest mouth
There stood a girl named Clementine
She is studying the family wealth

She is a blonde hair and blue eyed
She seeks to know what can’t be felt
Asked if I’d like to come inside
And if I’m famous or need help

Collecting novelty opinions
Can pull the words out from the air
Looking down upon the minions
Seeing yourself there just as clear

Tired of incomplete notions
Sick with mercury’s despair
The long list of distant cousins
With golden locks of German hair

Plagued by a fire burning bedside
Watched as you count the number of stares
Milligrams will open your eyes
Bound to energy’s wear and tear

No limitation Romeo
No Clementine advance
No lonely labyrinth anymore
No final dance
Track Name: Ocean
The Lawsuits - Ocean

I got nowhere to fall
Has a ceiling I’m sure
I stay ahead of it all
With the howl of a dog

You light a fire with a spark
Your unmovable parts
Got a moving start
The eyes have drifted apart

Yeah the seeds didn’t grow
And with the tears I’ve cried
I could build you an ocean
Could build you an ocean
Yeah the seeds didn’t grow
And with the tears I’ve cried
I could build you an ocean
Could build you an ocean

Paid to stand still in place
Wipe every look off my face
Stuck in a permanent crawl
Even the dead have the gall

I think that Mary may know
Why only weeds want to grow
In her backyard estate
Kept only for show

I’ve been a fool and a thief
I’ve been strong and weak
I’m keeping tabs on it all
Behind my memory’s wall

See the sound in the dark
See the wound in the art
See the fool with the smarts heading back to the start

Yeah the seeds didn’t grow
And with the tears I’ve cried
I could build you an ocean
Could build you an ocean
Yeah the seeds didn’t grow
And with the tears I’ve cried
I could build you an ocean
Could build you an ocean
Build me up
Break me down
Build me up
Break me down
Track Name: Wasted
The Lawsuits - Wasted

Well I don’t want to end it this way
I want to come over and try to explain
I told a lie, alone it might seem bad
I can’t tell if today’s a dream

I’m wasted
Wasted on you, Girl

Take a picture from a mountain way on high
Envision us both beneath the blue sky
Cool breeze will blow, birds will sing
You say I love you honey in spite of everything

I’m wasted
Wasted on you, Girl

We’ll always be always
We’ll always be always
We’ll always be always
We’ll always be always be always be (Fine)

I don’t want to end it this way
I want to go home and fix my mistakes
I told a lie, alone it would seem bad
I can’t tell if today’s a dream

Wasted
Wasted on you, Girl
Track Name: Goot Time To Change
The Lawsuits - Good Time To Change

Fall into place
We speak as you walk
Good time to change
You won't look at my face when I talk

I suppose time has been moving ordinarily consistent with some patterned waves like us that have somehow collided

Though it is you I don't blame for uprooting my mind
It's a good time to change
Leave it all behind

Do you see it is wonderful
Perhaps it's a miracle
Maybe I am the fool
But I can really get to you

But you don't break
No, you hardly will bend
You've told me so many ways
It doesn’t matter what you said

And I’m starting to think that which is true is false
You broke the spirit of your only ghost

Put on your makeup
The use of a mirror
And I’ll stand behind you
I couldn't be any clearer

Oh I was never a clever man, but old enough to enjoy
The scent of a real woman falling out of love with a boy - Ha
Turning words into pain is how I remain
Oh I’ll see you someday when your body's been laid

And I’m starting to think that which is true is false
You broke the spirit of your only ghost…
Track Name: Last Night
The Lawsuits - Last Night

Last night, I was caught in a dream, unfamiliar, a place unseen.
Last night, I couldn’t help but stare, those glowing eyes, standing right there.

I’m high on something but I can’t tell what, we’re in a movie but it seems uncut.
I’m picture framing, my feet are shakin’, I’m walking on some thin ice and it must be entertaining.
There’s a bright light shining in a pitch black room.
An illuminated silhouette divides into two.
I got one eye open and the other one’s blind. I can see everything and it’s you in my sight.

Last night, I was caught in a dream, unfamiliar, a place unseen.
Last night, I couldn’t help but stare, those glowing eyes, standing right there.
Last night, don’t stop it, baby please, you got me crawling on both of my knees
Last night, I couldn’t help but stare, oooooooooooooooooooo

I’m seeing things, shiny rings, circling round you.
I’m pushin’ through pink elephants to get to you

My eyes are tearing, its love I’m hearing from the ice breaking underneath my feet, I’m musketeering. Taking shots left and right, I’m getting lost in the war. Throwing bottles in the water, knockin’ on the neighbor’s door. I can’t sit still, I’m all over the place, I gotta find a way to get me out of this state. Oh wait, yeah I got it, let me spin us a top, we can find out if this dream is real or not.

Last night, I was caught in a dream, unfamiliar, a place unseen.
Last night, I couldn’t help but stare, those glowing eyes, standing right there.
Last night, don’t stop it, baby please, you got me crawling on both of my knees
Last night, I couldn’t help but stare, oooooooooooooooooooo
Track Name: Queen of Spades
The Lawsuits - Queen Of Spades

We used to talk
And dream of all the ways
We’d leave the state
Head to the west coast

The Queen of Spades
Might trump the jack of hearts
But a royal taste
Can’t fix these broken parts

People claim slow dances never stand for much
(They never do)
I believe tonight I'll try a fast one

Oh, shake off all of your skin
Stand up
Shout out
Oh, we may never be young again

A thousand lanes
To reach the golden coast
Where voices carry toasts
Under a different light

Some people lay
Under a different sun
Watching a different world
On every single day

People claim slow dances never stand for much
(They never do)
So, I believe tonight I'll try a fast one

Oh, shake off all of your skin
Stand up
Shout out
Oh, we may never be young again

You can stay and rot at home
Tied to memories of a small town
I really think
It shows you are the majesty of one
It shows you are the queen of a pond
When the ocean is the show

Oh, shake off all of your skin
Stand up
Shout out
Oh, we may never be young again
Track Name: Moon Son
The Lawsuits - Moon Son

Never alone with Ramona
She’s a full moon on the run
And she thinks I might be a forgotten sun
Pale, blue, blonde and young
Some people never grow old
Some never get to be young

She works hard at the endings
She is weak at the start
Although I think she might be the permanent one
Born of gold sold to a jester’s spawn
Some people never say no
Some just get what they want

I’ve never been to Pasadena
She says somewhere out there I know
There is a wind that sings you unwritten songs
You can paint yourself in the colors you want
Losing yourself in the glow
Losing the one that you love

When everything has been re-seeded
Your reflection’s a window’s eye
Feeling the dust falling from the window blinds
Ain’t the worst or the last time
Light in the dark will glow
Not necessarily shine
Track Name: To End War
The Lawsuits - To End War

The soul changes as your body ages - and what’s that for
A simple way to repeat myself.
And all at once a thought may culminate inside your head - maybe I was wrong
The stranger that you are would love the stranger that you were most every day
Every picture frame that you invade warms my cold, cold, cold thoughts

Why do I feel like I knew you much better before

Hold on
I knew you before
Hold on
I knew you before

You are beautiful on every days waking eye – This I know
Your rose scented skies and hazy colored eyes turn me warm
The light that shines behind your smile is bright enough to end war

And why do I feel like I knew you much better before

Hold on
I knew you before
Hold on
I knew you before

And why do I feel like I knew you much better before
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on
Feel like I knew you before
Track Name: Hail Storm
The Lawsuits - Hail Storm

I think I'm floating in a foreign place
I want to say something clever but I lost the taste
You're a fool to claim a stake in what you didn't create
Add it all up and you'll see I’m a friend

In the final turn you're alone with the reality that what you were
Isn't much without the time to reflect and learn
Then again, that depends on the view

If you want to play with fire
Then you must truly want to burn

Today I'm born
Never worried about tomorrow or the change in current
Old love is a treasure that you can't ignore
When it defines so much of you

What’s to come
Sat high as power lines in a hail storm
Criticized eye to eye in my own home
I'm tired of dancing with a ghost

You want to play with fire
Then you must truly want to burn
Well in truth, everyone's a liar
And committed to an eternal blue

I know I’m floating in a foreign place
I want to say something clever but I lost the taste
You’re a fool to claim a stake in what you didn’t create
Got to see the start to appreciate the end

You want to play with fire
Then you must truly want to burn
If you want to play with fire
Then you must truly want to burn

You want to play with fire
Then you must truly want to burn
Well in truth, everyone's a liar
And committed to an eternal blue
