Track Name: Breather
Everybody’s wearing suits and ties
And it got me into thinking ‘when will I
Settle down to nine to five’s?’
Sell off my gear and dress in corporate
Incorporated

Because my body’s getting old
But my head is still stuck in this mess

Wait for me
I just need a breather
And all my friends,
They could pretend
This is the situation they chose to be in now

I’m guessing we could never be the astronauts, the pilots and the surgeons
Everything we thought the world to be when we were three was
Make believe, aspirations thrown into the wind, you see?
We are who we pretend to be so

Wait for me
I just need a breather
And all my friends,
They could pretend
This is the situation they chose to be in now

I never thought I would be one of you
Tongue tied and supervised
I never lied so much in my life
Getting involved in petty crimes no one will know
For your sake, for the sake of your company

Wait for me
Company
Wait for me
Track Name: What These Arms Are For
Waiting for something to strike my interest
I've been keeping my eyes out for days
Maybe it's the altitude that's keeping me awake
Or the zigzags and the gorges that I'm passing by with haste
While my passenger's asleep, I pray that I could keep a mental picture of the time we spent driving through the roads we've never been

Open windows, breathing in the air that we wish we could take back home, The weather's just right for us, cold but we could keep each other warm, I'm keeping you encased in this embrace,
So you'll know what these arms are for
Track Name: Soup Snake
I can honestly say
That I have done almost anything to make each fight last for just one day
But you’ve been making bad decisions when you’re angry

Cut open my skull and see my brain and how it functions
So you wouldn’t assume that I treat you just like the others

Let’s have it your way
Let’s not talk for days or weeks
Cause maybe it could solve this mess that we’ve been piling up
Let’s have it your way
I’m done losing sleep from arguments that shouldn’t have ever existed in the first place

And all this time, I’ve considered what’s best for both of us
For me to let go of who I am
But it only made things worse
And now I feel that if I lose you, I’ll never have anything

Cut open my skull and see my brain and how it functions
So you wouldn’t assume that I treat you just like the others

Let’s have it your way
Let’s not talk for days or weeks
Cause maybe it could solve this mess that we’ve been piling up
Let’s have it your way
I’m done losing sleep from arguments that shouldn’t have ever existed in the first place

What’s the point of doing something about it?
When everything I’ve done wouldn’t matter

Let’s have it your way
Let’s not talk for days or weeks
Cause maybe it could solve this mess that we’ve been piling up
Let’s have it your way
I’m done losing sleep from arguments that shouldn’t have ever existed in the first place
Track Name: Radio Laws
I don't owe you an apology
Just suck it up and leave me be
Alone like I'm supposed to be
You said so yourself
I’ve only brought you disappointment
I can't agree enough

Did you ever think that I would grow up just like you?
Well seeing how you raised me up I don't think that I want to
I’m being modest when I say that you're the worst father in the world

I don’t think you understand
That I didn’t fall from your tree
That I don't need your pity
It’s the same fucking sermon
That I’ve fucking heard a million times

Did you ever think that I would grow up just like you?
Well seeing how you raised me up I don't think that I want to
I’m being modest when I say that you're the worst father in the world

I hope your worst fears come to life
When you'd have to pay a person just to be by your side
You’ve invested on the wrong things, now it might be too late
And I will be just fine
