Track Name: The Flood
Here comes the drugs wash over me their wake will take us out to sea

Open the floodgates, cut us loose then we'll catch our stride
Follow through together the realest thing that we can do tonight

Here come the drums, rain over me stuttering start of the daylight dawning
fathers yell and mothers weep crawl on our knees soon enough we’re walking shed a tear at “Hey Nineteen” another love crashed in-between

Open the floodgates, cut us loose then we'll catch our stride
Close your eyes and stay by my side the realest thing that you can do tonight

And when we realized the stakes were high, we’d clear our minds
and rationalize, I’ll love you right and you don’t even have to notice

The bigger the scores for the deals we’re making totally worth all the bones we’re breaking if only my father had gotten older to think that we thought that our lives were over
Track Name: Red Sauce Revisited
Please give me something I can understand
a wisp, a moment, hold it in my hands
The night’s aglow, the moon hangs low
the glint is in the glass
Don’t think there’s any reason for goodbyes

Think it over for a second
one grain in the sands of time
Band on the run as the hourglass smashed tonight

And the weight of each decision
crashing down like tidal waves
Even the crooks and the dimestore hoods have faith

Signs are on the ceiling, writing’s on the wall
There’s a terrifying feeling I won’t see you anymore
and I just can't stop the bleeding so I’ll learn to love the pain
I never thought that this is how it ends

Familiar favorites back by popular demand
The air is heavy with the sweat of cheap romance
The room is hot and the girls forgot
the boys are in the band
Don’t see any reason for goodbyes

And the evening’s entertainment
killed the crowd just like a plague
Nobody noticed the path we would take
Head for the lights; we saved

Signs are on the ceiling, writing’s on the wall
There’s a terrifying feeling I won’t see you anymore
and I just can't stop the bleeding so I’ll learn to love the pain
I never thought that this is how it ends

That’s the cost of doing business
That’s the shot across the bow
Just get in the van as fast as you can, for now before it gets too dark to find it

Signs are on the ceiling, writing’s on the wall
There’s a terrifying feeling I won’t see you anymore
and I cannot stop the bleeding so I’ll learn to love the pain
I never thought that this is how it ends
