Track Name: The Buyer And His Market
Amongst all the wounds we’ve seen
These ones seem so familiar
With open hearts and sad goodbyes
We’ll greet the visitors here
With our honesty
When our honesty lies tonight
We weaken

As we meet the buyer
He works hard for this
They’re the misfits and liars
But he won't leave their side
He may learn to save
With a new place to lie his head
He’ll just spend till he’s dead

We sold you time and gave you lies but you don’t know how easy it is
To greet the visitors when honesty lies
We’ll greet the visitors here but my shoulders are tight
We’ll pick them up and celebrate them for all they’ll buy

They don’t care about you

As we meet the buyer
He works hard for this
We’re the misfits and liars
But he won't leave their side
He may learn to save
With a new place to lie his head
He’ll just steal til he’s dead


If you don’t give us what we wanted
Then we’re going to steal it
I’ll apologize for the times you never expect it
We’re still paying for the gifts that we get
I'll apologize for the times you never expect it
Track Name: Exit Lights
There’s something beautiful
Then I’m not sure where it’s gone
We’re stuck with the lives you’ve never shown
We’ll remember with our photographic minds
As we wait for the exit lights
We know that you were the beautiful
Because it’s too late, you had to go

We sit back and react but you left us too fast
You never knew how your life could change one life
Reaction
You built a part in our hearts that we will never forget
So let's be the story
Let’s paint the pictures we keep inside our hearts
As we wait for good news all we find are goodbyes

Is this all you wanted?
Is this all you asked for?
I know these (your) memories I'll never ignore
I’m not fine here tonight

So let’s take one step back
We are going to relax and make this easy if we try
Try to realize we were the lucky ones
We lived the life
Let’s keep and speak the memory
We live just for this
And as we say our goodbyes
We hold on and celebrate the life

You’re all that we wanted
You’re all that we asked for
I know your memories we’ll never ignore
And then we are all fine here

Yet through all of these times and trials
The thoughts you bring make all the while
We’ll sing and celebrate every word you said

The Life you give
Were still holding
The life we live
Your life that we celebrate
Through these exit lights we’ll spend them tonight
Smiling for you
All you’ve given us

One Life we live
We can’t have it all
But we can have
The few and your song
Through these exit lights we’ll spend them tonight
Smiling for you
All you’ve given us
Track Name: Story At Its Best
Please wait for the story that teaches how to feel
We rewrite the same page a thousand times
But this chapter never made any sense to me
And yet we know that this gets easier now
But as we rewrite the same pages a thousand times
This line always screams out loud to me
And this chapter is coming to an end

These are my best and my mistakes
The lines that scream out loud
I'll never hate or forget yours
These are the past and promises we’ve made (we make)

As we rewrite the same pages a thousand times
Will this line ever make much sense?
One word?
What will I need here to complete the sentence, the lines, the book?
And this chapter isn’t done

If we could we could have it all
But we're only going too slowly
Let’s just go, we can go anywhere we need
As we go I hope you’ve enjoyed the show
I'll survive these stories with time

This is the story at its best
Track Name: The Radio
So let’s sing along
I cannot make any sense without these sounds
If I cannot hear those frequencies that I need to hear
The city lights they will die
If we don’t sing tonight

I hear the radio's last blast
But it’s too late for this
We’re not giving in

If we can’t hear the noises that we need to hear
The city lights will go out
If we don’t sing tonight

There’s a sing along
I can hear all the voices of my friends and my family
They won’t die tonight
The sounds bring them home

We are all default in our playlist
These words I can’t dismiss

I hear the radio's last blast
But it’s too late for this
We’re not giving in
