Track Name: Bystander
BYSTANDER

Am I nervous on purpose?
To render a service
Unelected projected
From a camera, infected
Got a shoeshine on moonshine
One November a bell chimed
Am I nervous on purpose?

It’s a fact don’t react
‘Til the wolf blows down the door
It’s so sad that we have
Everything and still want more
‘Til the wolf blows down the door

Open Season on reason
There’s no truth in the dealing
In the corner the reporter’s
Making chaos out of order
Am I nervous on purpose?

It’s a fact don’t react
‘Til the wolf blows down the door
It’s so sad that we have
Everything and still want more
It’s a fact don’t react
‘Til the wolf blows down the door
‘Til the wolf blows down the door

Bystander
Track Name: Destroy You
DESTROY YOU

It starts in the morning
The night hawk still soaring
Bed sheets need washing
The radio talking

The last thing she said was
Don’t go to bed
In silence
Silence

How we going to live this over
When we’re through
Making do
How we going to live this over
When we’re through
Destroy You

Through curtain spills streetlight
The slow burn of midnight
Elbows and knees touch
And somehow it seems just like

The last thing she said was
Don’t go to bed
In silence
Silence

How we going to live this over
When we’re through
Making do
How we going to live this over
When we’re through
Destroy you
It’s the easiest route to follow
Making due
Destroy you
Track Name: It's Not Up To Me
IT'S NOT UP TO ME

Contact the lawyers
Tell them not to breathe
It’s getting hot outside
We’re going to see if we can leave

Tie down the branches
Pack up the seeds
Take all that leaves with you
We’re going to see what we can see

It’s not up to me
To be what you need

Run up the hillsides
Just make believe
Pull up the weeds and make them
Safe for us to eat

It’s not up to me
To be what you need
It’s not up to me
You get what you see
Track Name: Friendly Fire
FRIENDLY FIRE

You die of friendly fire
We die of friendly fire
Track Name: Fully Shed (Kevin Hamilton Remix)
FULLY SHED (KEVIN HAMILTON REMIX)

He gets mad when I get drunk
Walk around town like a loaded gun
But now I'm fully shed
And I'm back in bed

Highschool kids get stoned
Falling in and out of love
We were playing dead
We were upset

Ah, you should let me go just a little bit
I'm coming home in just a little bit

Standing at the edge of the things I've done
Push me off and wake the sun
Am I fully shed
Are we there yet?

Ah, you should let me go just a little bit
I'm coming home in just a little bit

I wanna know just a little bit
I'm gonna let in show and be done with it

BYSTANDER (ACOUSTIC)

Am I nervous on purpose?

It’s so sad that we have
Everything and still want more
‘Til the wolf blows down the door

There’s no truth in the dealing

Making chaos out of order
Am I nervous on purpose?

Everything and still want more
