Track Name: Grave Digger
It scares me to think of where I was a year ago
If it wasn't for friends I wouldn't be here today

'Cause I'm so tired
And it seems
I'm not finished
Digging this grave

In time, in time
We will be tested
We will all fall

Just when I think I'm getting better
I wake up on this cold bed
Next time don't even bother with me
Lock me up and throw away the key

'Cause I'm so tired
And it seems
I'm not finished
Digging this grave

In time, in time
We will be tested
We will all fall

It's how we pick ourselves back up
It's how we bounce back from the fall
It'll make us who we are
It'll make us who we become

In time, in time
We will be tested
We will all fall
Track Name: Family Tree
We get what we need
Through thick and thin
We are a team
When the world gets us down
We can rely on 24 friends to get around
Whoa! We’re a Family Tree!

We bend and we break
For the thrill of it all
We lift up our glasses
Stumble and fall

We are who we are
We’ll do what makes us happy
This is our life
We choose how to live it
We have 24 friends that will never let us down
Whoa! We’re a Family Tree!

We bend and we break
For the thrill of it all
We lift up our glasses
Stumble and fall
Track Name: Heartbreaks and Fairytales
This is another one
For the record books
Everything offered
Is what I took

If I never experience love loss again
What would I write about then?

Come on! Come on!
Give me a heartbreak
Come on! Come on!
Something to write about

This is a fairytale
With a little twist
Full of cliché lines
And catchy riffs

If I never experience love loss again
What would I write about then?
Track Name: Old Hollywood
Her innocence drifts away
Down by the shoreline of this small town
She’s hanging with the boys from the Whitechapel district
Wishing she can stay seventeen

Under neon skies
She’s got starry eyes
Wishing she could be
In old Hollywood

A Nebraska girl with tattoos on her arms
She is a punk rock Marilyn Monroe

Under neon skies
She’s got starry eyes
Wishing she could be
In old Hollywood

It's the attention that we seek
Waiting to be discovered
Attention that we seek
Holding onto our dreams forever

Under neon skies
She’s got starry eyes
Wishing she could be
In old Hollywood
Track Name: Spoiler Alert! The East Has Won
What a waste of another year
It’s time to get away
From the mountains
I’m gone, I’m out, I’m leaving you all behind
It’s getting late
It’s time to pack all my shit
Skip out of town
it's the last time I’ll be around

This is my goodbye
I’ll see you at the end
Until then you’ll never
You’ll never hear from me again

You’re my best friend
My partner in crime
I’ll meet you at the spit vent
One last time
Before I leave
This time for good
They don’t understand
I never expected that they would

This is my goodbye
I’ll see you at the end
Until then you’ll never
You’ll never hear from me again
