2. LIVING FOR THE WEEKEND
Written by Tim Waters, Mike O'Leary, and We Are The Movies

I see you, wouldn’t want to be you,
Down size, hoping you can live that good life happy ever after,
But everything they told you was a lie,
And you sold out everything you hold dear,
Shut your mouth and do what you are told here,
But I know that I still have the strength,
To dig up this grave where I buried my dreams,
Cause I won’t hold me down

I’ll cut the ties that are holding me back,
It’s about fucking time I got my life on track,
Cause I’m all about getting rid of the doubt,
Break free from the lies that’ll hold me down,
I don’t know where I’m going but I know where I want to be,
And I swear you haven’t seen the last of me,

Sick to death of living for the weekend,
No more breaking when I should bend,
Late start making up the difference,
Full speed I’m closing the distance,
Wake up, wake up, everybody wake up,
Break out of your boxes, open your eyes,
Let’s dig up the courage to throw it all in,
Cause we’ll never see the finish if we never begin,
The path is right in front of you,

Cut the ties that are holding me back,
It’s about fucking time I got my life on track,
Cause I’m all about getting rid of the doubt,
Break free from the lies that’ll hold me down,
I don’t know where I’m going but I know where I want to be,
And I swear you haven’t seen the last of me,
What are we waiting for,

Another day, a week, a month a year,
I’m done wasting time just sitting here,
And I swear you haven’t seen the last of me,

Cut the ties that are holding me back,
It’s about fucking time I got my life on track,
Cause I’m all about getting rid of the doubt,
Break free from the lies that’ll hold me down,
I don’t know where I’m going but I know where I want to be,
And I swear you haven’t seen the last of me,

What are we waiting for?

3. SOBER
Written by Vanessa Waters and Tim Waters / Adapted for performance by Tim Waters and We Are The Movies

I really like you when you’re sober,
But that don’t seem to happen now too much these days,
And the fact that you’re older,
Sure doesn’t instill much confidence,
What the hell ever happened to responsibility, fulfilling things,
When will we learn to get out before candle light starts to burn,

And I’ve said it once before, didn’t change the games you play,
Forgiving you through every fucking menial mistake,
Now we’re lying on the floor, drowning in the mess we made,
I’m throwing up my white flag, done with the masquerade,

I thought you couldn’t be colder,
No wait a minute I haven’t seen act two,
You fold me over and over,
Origami has fewer angles than you,
Now my accommodating heart has got the best of me,
And these deliberations are a common courtesy,
I don’t know when you started growing colder,
I don’t think you’ll grow up when you get older,
Come on, come on,
You know I don’t believe it,
Get up, get up,
I know it when I see it

And I’ve said it once before, didn’t change the games you play,
Forgiving you through every fucking menial mistake,
Now we’re lying on the floor, drowning in the mess we made,
I’m throwing up my white flag, done with the masquerade,

And I can feel you consuming me,
Taking over ruining me,
River used to run through us deep,
And now we’re right back where we started,
I can feel you consuming me,
Taking over ruining me,
I think I’m running out of room to breathe,
And now I’m right back where I started,
Better off but broken hearted

I’ve said it all before, it doesn’t change the games you play,
Forgiving you through every fucking menial mistake,
Now we’re lying on the floor, drowning in the mess we made,
I’m throwing up my white flag, done with the masquerade.

4. LEAVING ME INCOMPLETE
Written by Garry Bair, Jack Snyder, and Tim Waters / Originally performed by Someone Like You / Adapted for performance by Tim Waters and We Are The Movies / Featured guest vocals by Nick Thompson

Just one bite,
That’s all it took to take me down to break me down,
Just one bite and I’m on the watch,
Afflicted by her love sickness that won’t ever stop,
Her taste is perfect laced with poisonous love,
Call me a junkie cause I can’t get enough,
And it breaks my heart she’s just out for the blood,

I’ll have you know you’re still contagious,
You might feel better but you’re making me fend for myself,
I know there’s nothing out there that can contain this,
The hole in this case is leaving me incomplete,

Doctor, doctor please take a look,
Is it too late or am I off the hook,
Slow down young man, tell me what you’re dealing with,
To kill this strand there’s no time to be remiss,

She looks so perfect but she’s empty and hollow,
I know she used me but it’s too much to swallow,
And you know that I’d do it over again,

I’ll have you know you’re still contagious,
You might feel better but you’re making me fend for myself,
I know there’s nothing out there that can contain this,
The hole in this case is leaving me,
Leaving me incomplete,

I’ll have you know you’re still contagious,
You might feel better,
But I’m not…

I think it’s too late and I’m starting to turn,
Well I’ll mix up my words, it’s all part of this curse
I think it’s too late and I’m starting to turn,
Well I’ll mix up my words, it’s all part of this curse

I’ll have you know you’re still contagious,
You might feel better but you’re making me fend for myself,
I know there’s nothing out there that can contain this,
The hole in this case is leaving me,
Leaving me incomplete,

You’re still contagious,
You’re making me fend for myself,
I can’t contain this,
The hole in this case is leaving me,
You incomplete me.

5. BEAUTIFUL NIGHTMARE
Written by Tim Waters, Bryan Overholt, We Are The Movies, and Claire Enderle

This is the end so throw it all right off the edge,
And let’s not pretend we were every really friends,
Because with every breath I see how few we have left,
And you were only out for profit so it’s time to cut my losses,

Can’t comprehend the words you chose to say,
And I won’t defend or stand behind the choices that you make,
And I’m taking every step over the mess that you left,
And you were only out for profit so it’s time to cut my losses

Wake up, wake up alone, wake up, wake up alone,
Out of this beautiful nightmare,
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up alone,
Cuz this is too good to be true,

Out of this beautiful nightmare,

And I’ll be waiting for you every day,
In my dreams you’ll be waiting for me,
So I took this dream and I threw it far from here,
To make this nightmare disappear,
The truth is that this heart was never yours,

Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up alone,
Out of this beautiful nightmare,
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up alone, 

I hope you wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up alone,
Out of this beautiful nightmare,
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up alone,
Cuz this is too good to be true,

Out of this beautiful nightmare,

I’m running out of ink to put on this page,
I think I’m burnt out on hating you,
But if I stop right now they’ll never know the truth,
This is a beautiful nightmare.

6. EMPATHY
Written by Mike O'Leary, Tim Waters, and We Are The Movies

Cure this affliction that burns a void in me,
I need to get myself up again,
Is this just friction in a bleak reality,
It may be time for drastic measures,
But am I ready to be saved,

I know the plot of this story,
Reaching out and coming up empty,
I’m told that patience is a virtue,
But my time is nearing curfew,
But you and I, you and I both know it’s all worth reaching for.

No motivation, I beg for stronger will,
This all or nothing thinking is doing me in,
But in an empty shell, there’s nothing left to kill.
Inject some peace of mind so that I can learn to live.

Cut the cord and break away so that I can learn to live,

I know the plot of this story,
Reaching out and coming up empty,
I’m told that patience is a virtue,
But my time is nearing curfew,
But you and I, you and I both know,
It’s all worth reaching for.

I see fear surrounding you,
But I’ll find the strength to see this through,
Bleeding into all you know,
When we’re feeling inside out and all alone,
There is nothing left to do but move.

So that I can learn to live 

I know the plot of this story,
Reaching out and coming up empty,
I’m told that patience is a virtue,
But my time is nearing curfew,
But you and I, you and I both know it’s all worth reaching for.

7. I GUESS IT COMES DOWN TO A SIMPLE CHOICE
Written by Mike O'Leary and We Are The Movies / Additional production by Tim Waters

It’s torture trying to be yourself,
When everything you know and love falls around you,
It’s madness learning to care enough,
When your best efforts turn to dust,
And slip right through your hands.

Six feet of dirt above my head,
How did I dig myself here,
Unless I forgot I was alive,
I’m crawling back to the surface.

Time is too precious, no sense in denying 
Existing is easy, but barely surviving,
I’m sick of excuses, so finally I’m trying,
To get busy living or get busy dying.

~

8. GET BUSY LIVING OR GET BUSY DYING
Written by Mike O'Leary and We Are The Movies

How many seconds have I wasted up in my head,
Too many questions with clear answers that were never said,
Sinking deeper, overcome by the pressure,
Of making dreams reality and holding them together.

This fear of failure, a waste of potential,
And plans without effort are inconsequential,
These feet in my shoes still have room left to grow,
So I’d better start walking cause now I know that,

Time is too precious, no sense in denying,
Existing is easy but barely surviving,
I’m sick of excuses so finally I’m trying,
To get busy living or get busy dying.

Moving forward is an exercise in patience,
When pain from healing wounds has become an old acquaintance.
To build momentum is to learn from the past, 
And work through the memories holding me back,

I clung to the fear I was taught to preserve,
And accepted the treatment I thought I deserved,
But these steps in my progress are beginning to show,
I see light in the distance and now I know that,

Time is too precious, no sense in denying,
Existing is easy but barely surviving,
I’m sick of excuses so finally I’m trying,
To get busy living or get busy dying.

I know the path is long to get this life right,
I can’t ignore it now, no more fight or flight,
Commit to finishing what I started,
So here I go again and now I know that,

Time is too precious, no sense in denying,
Existing is easy but barely surviving,
I’m sick of excuses so finally I’m trying,
To get busy living or get busy dying.

Get busy living or get busy dying.

1. ALWAYS THE RULE...NEVER THE EXCEPTION
Written by Tim Waters and We Are The Movies

I will confess that I've always been a bit of a cynic,
I do my best but it works for me,
And over time through the years I can say that I finished,
Never first but I crossed the line

Cause all I ever wanted,
Was a chance to be a part of something bigger than this,
So let it go and take a look inside,
I just might be something worth saving,

Through all the confidence and all the compromise,
And all the broken promises we made,
To each other just to get to the other side,
But we made it and I hate it.

Sometimes we try too hard,
Sometimes we push too far,
Well this time is no exception,
We've gone our own direction.

Breaking out of the mold isn't easy to do,
Hanging on to the old prevents the new,
My inspiration is fading fast,
You can give up on me,
But I'm never giving up on you.

~

2. THE STORY SO FAR
Written by Tim Waters and We Are The Movies

When I was seventeen,
No they never seemed to call me by name,
Or let me know that I had a part in all of these decisions,
That I thought somebody else would make. 
So I ran, oh they shoved it down my throat,
Always stand in line, never take what's given.
My decisions are my own,
I'm sick of being under you.

I tried to take the high road but I already know where it goes,
I guess I'll take my chances down below,
Cause I'm better off on my own.

Time, oh you always drag me down,
Pull my head under the water, I can't breathe,
I'll try but this ocean's sinking in.
Treading water, trying to get back to where it all began,
I stand alone.

Fast forward 23 staring out of the window of this hotel,
My friends and their college degrees,
Slowly making their way back home,
I've made my own and it's broken down,
Another three years go by not wasted,
So I'll keep hanging tight 'cuz
We're nowhere near the finish and it's getting better every night,

I tried to take the high road but I already know where it goes,
I guess I'll take my chances down below,
Cause I'm better off on my own.

Time, oh you always drag me down,
Pull my head under the water, I can't breathe,
I'll try but this ocean's sinking in.
Treading water, trying to get back to where it all began,
I stand alone.

I should be thanking you for everything,
I had to make it on my own so I could only have myself to blame,
I should be thanking you for everything,
I had to make it on my own, I had to make it on my own. 

So you can take the high road cause I'm good right here,
And I'll be waiting for you when you get here,
Cause I'm better off on my own,

Time, oh you always drag me down,
Pull my head under the water, I can't breathe,
I'll try but this ocean's sinking in.
Treading water, trying to get back to where it all began,
I stand alone.

3. HAPPY EX-MAS (WAR IS OVER)
Written by Jack Snyder, Tim Waters / Adapted for performance by Tim Waters and We Are The Movies

Last summer ended when you let it fall,
Took off and never called until the snow came down again,
I've let it go but every now and then you're creeping back again,
Remind me that I'm over it,

December cold fits you well my dear,
Here's to another year of lingering regret,

Line my roof with landmines,
We all need something to believe in,
But give me something real like happiness,

The days get shorter as I walk along,
And wonder what went wrong to pull me out that door again,
I can't escape the image of that life,
It cuts me like a knife but I'm numb to it so,
If Saint Nick is real can he bring me a gift like the tin man
So I can feel again or is this only wishful thinking,

December cold fits you well my dear,
Here's to another year of lingering regret,

Line my roof with landmines,
We all need something to believe in,
But give me something real like happiness,

I've been waiting for,
Your footprints in the snow on this cold Ohio night,
I said I'd stay away,
But at night I pray that you'll find your way to me.

4. THE BEST REVENGE IS LIVING WELL
Written by Mike O'Leary and We Are The Movies

Don't call it a crisis, just tell me how,
The questions caused the alarms to sound in your head.
Your logic's paper thin, discourse is sinking in,
So the thing you find so rebellious,
Is that I'm finally in the space to breathe on my own,
Shedding thoughts, untying knots,
The sleepers always hate the wide awake,

Don't say you'll pray for me anyway,
I'm finally happy.

Your talking points they have no voice,
I'm left here with no other choice,
To my own self be true,
And as your judgement calls are blurring,
I find your lack of faith disturbing,
You say I'm lost, I found myself,
But if I can see the truth then tell me why can't you?

Let's call it a process, one step at a time,
Compose yourself and prepare to hear what I say,
About my change in sight, redemption's worth the fight,
Cause all around me I can the souvenirs,
The remnants of a life held back by shame and fear,
You were wrong to think I'd stay in my shell,
The best revenge is living well.

Don't say you'll pray for me anyway,
I'm finally happy,
I'm tearing pages from the books I hate,
I'm finally happy.

Your talking points they have no voice,
I'm left here with no other choice,
To my own self be true,
And as your judgement calls are blurring,
I find your lack of faith disturbing,
You say I'm lost, I found myself,
But if I can see the truth then tell me why can't you?

TO MY OWN SELF BE TRUE 

Don't say you're happy when I know you're not,
Backtrack and act like you just forgot,
Just open your eyes and see,
It's easier to place the blame on me,

Don't say I'm wrong when I know that I'm not,
I've learned to have some independent thought,

Your talking points they have no voice,
I'm left here with no other choice,
To my own self be true,
The best revenge is living well.

5. TEMPORARY
Written by Tim Waters, Stephen Goldstein and We Are The Movies

I had this dream and when I woke up,
I had the whole world staring back at me,
I was fast asleep and the things you said,
Weren't so different from what you really mean,
And I thought by now that this reflection of me,
Would be lost in my sleep.

But I've got this sinking feeling I should be better than this. 

And right now my shadow is running away,
And I'm afraid of the things you do and all the things you might say,

I'm letting all your lies drag me down to your size.

And all I can say is your voice is empty,
I'm breaking this stride and don't think you've tempted me,
I've walked on this line it's bending and breaking,
So don't be alarmed when I'm the only when changing,

And right now my shadow is running away,
And I'm afraid of the things you do and all the things you might say,
Wide awake but I've been sleeping for days,
I'm letting all your lies drag me down to your size.

When you said this was only temporary,
When you said I'm thinking it over,
I'm counting the pins in these maps on my wall,
You're living for tomorrow you're not living at all,
When you said this was only temporary,
When you said I'm thinking it over again,
I'm counting the pages of places I'll go,
You're living for tomorrow,
You're not living at all,

I had this dream the world was right in front of me,
And all I could see were things that I couldn't reach,
And I believe the things that you told me,
But I don't think you know me,
I don't think you know me at all.

~

6. BY A THREAD
Written by Mike O'Leary / Adapted for performance by Tim Waters and Mike O'Leary

If I faltered on the path of least resistance,
It was due to lack of light,
A shadow vapor rise in darkness,
And if I was lost along the way it was because,
I hated who I had become,
And I hate who I was for that.

As I wonder in my head I wonder where you've gone,
I'm making up the stories that are aching to be told,
I'll stomach this again for one more hope,
That lingers by a thread but anchored to my soul.

My cut and bleeding hands,
They hold the shards of memories past,
And I commence to piece them back together,
And it kills me that this act is being done all by myself,
Because your silhouette is etched upon my mind,
Could you give me one chance to prove this all to you.

As I wonder in my head I wonder where you've gone,
I'm making up the stories that are aching to be told,
I'll stomach this again for one more hope,
That lingers by a thread but anchored to my soul.

1. DREAMING BIG 
Written by Tim Waters and We Are The Movies

I'm losing faith in apologies,
I've given up on what you thought of me,
Leaving footprints in circles for hours each day,
Always moving, never stopping
But never seeming to get anywhere,

Where has all the time gone, why am I still chasing,
These stupid dreams we had when I was just a kid,
Wake up take me home to make up for wasting my time,
Thinking my life could never get better than this,

Cause my heart was made for dreaming,
And these lungs were made for screaming,
And even if you throw me out i'm still not fucking leaving,

Sing along if you know how it feels,
To be drinking alone in the backyard of somebody's house,
And everybody else, everybody else is standing on their own,
And I said dreaming big was meant for kids,
At 29 it's a goddamn disease.

And I'm fucking contagious,
I'm infected with this goddamn notion,
That if I don't keep going I'll end up dead anyway,
And it's a goddamn tragedy,
Or a comedy for the crowd waiting for their turn to play,
So live it up while you still can,
'Cuz when tomorrow comes around you'll still be living this one down,
And don't turn me up, I only came to get down,
But don't tune me out.

Where has all the time gone, why am I still chasing,
These stupid dreams we had when I was just a kid,
Wake up take me home to make up for wasting hours,
Trying to find the words to say what's on your mind,

Cause my heart was made for dreaming,
And these lungs were made for screaming,
And even whenyou throw me out i'm still not fucking leaving,

Sing along if you know how it feels,
To be drinking alone in the backyard of somebody's house,
And everybody else, everybody else is standing on their own,
And I said dreaming big was meant for kids,
29 years old and I am sick of fucking trying,
And I swear I'm fucking dying to forget,

Those things you said to me still stuck inside my head,
When we were back in California,
And still thinking we would be the next big thing,
Dreaming big was meant for kids,
At 29 it's a goddamn disease.

Sing along if you know how it feels,
To be drinking alone in the backyard of somebody's house,
And everybody else, everybody else is standing on their own,
And I said dreaming big was meant for kids,
At 29 it's a goddamn disease.

2. THIS IS GOODBYE 
Written by Tim Waters and We Are The Movies

Girl, you got me in a tight situation and you don't even know that I found out,
I could say it to your face but what is the point,
When we both would stay the same 'cuz nothing ever changes,
Letting go, you cut me down to size for the last time,
Lie to you, I need a holiday, I need a getaway,
Everybody else, everybody else sees it,

EVERYBODY ELSE BUT YOU!

So this is goodbye, not just for tonight,
These are the words that you have written on your face,
So don't act like I never tried to make this right,
Every word we wrote in paragraphs,
We set ourselves up for the word goodbye,

And don't even think about the good times,
And don't reminisce cause it was all a lie,
You were blinded by the absence of a little thing called love,
But you faked it oh you faked it so well,

OH WELL, OH WELL!

So this is goodbye, not just for tonight,
These are the words that you have written on your face,
So don't act like I never tried to make this right,
Every word we wrote in paragraphs,
We set ourselves up for the word goodbye,

You wanted everything but you couldn't handle it,
I'd take it all back for a night,
If we could just start over again,

So this is goodbye, not just for tonight,
These are the words that you have written on your face,
So don't act like I never tried to make this right,
Every word we wrote in paragraphs,
We set ourselves up for the word goodbye,

3. BREAK ME DOWN 
Written by Garry Bair, Tim Waters, Zach Frost, Stephen Goldstein, Pat Harmon / Originally performed by Someone Like You / Adapted for performance by We Are The Movies

I'm in shock you found your way back home,
From the top of my untouched telephone,
Tonight's a night I'll be drinking alone,
Another shot and I'm face down on the floor,
Know what you want but I won't have it anymore,

Break down, you know I'll break down,
Back into the ways that I changed when I turn it around,
Break out, you know I'll break out,
Tear myself away from mistakes that are holding me down,
Right now.

Let's get this party on, turn the drama off,
I'm sick of giving in a little bit whenever we talk,
And I'm addicted, but this won't happen again,
When you're tearing me apart I've gotta stick with my friends,
So drop this call and drop the act,
I've gotta find another way to get you off my back,
Always waiting for the minute I come undone,
But i wouldn't hold your breath, I'm faded for the best,
I'm so gone,

Break down, you know I'll break down,
Back into the ways that I changed when I turn it around,
Break out, you know I'll break out,
Tear myself away from mistakes that are holding me down,
I'm sick of past romances, second chances,
I've been on hold for awhile,
You break me down,
Girl you're just a phone call away but I don't want to talk right now,

Break me down,
Girl you know you turn me inside out,
We'll never work this out,
You're just a phone call, you're just a phone call,

Break down, you know I'll break down,
Back into the ways that I changed when I turn it around,
Break out, you know I'll break out,
Tear myself away from mistakes that are holding me down,
I'm sick of past romances, second chances,
I've been on hold for awhile,
You break me down,
Girl you're just a phone call away but I don't want to talk right now,
I don't want to talk right now.

4. FAULT LINES
Written by Tim Waters, Garry Bair, and We Are The Movies

LIGHTS OUT!

I'm not taking anymore of this bullshit competition,
Do I have your full attention or should I call you out,
Scream your name into the crowd,
Point the finger like you sold me out,

They say I'm second best, I'm inching closer,
A step ahead you're more or less weight off my shoulders,
They say I'm second best I'm inching closer,
A step behind we're more or less shoulder to shoulder.

I'm still alive and well,
Get up and give 'em hell,
You said you want me but I don't want this,
Stepping over all your dreams,

Line up my silhouette,
Draw me in the way you want to,
Light up a cigarette,
Place the flame do what you thought up,
We're crossing lines in style for miles on this boardwalk,
You're a sucker for smooth talk, just a sucker for smooth talk. 

LIGHTS OUT! 

You crossed the line and danced upon it,
Now I'm sending you a message,
In a bottle soaked in kerosene,
And as I watch your future burn down,
Leaving nothing but the ghost of me,
Haunting all your failed dreams,

Line up my silhouette,
Draw me in the way you want to,
Light up a cigarette,
Place the flame do what you thought up,
We're crossing lines in style for miles on this boardwalk,
You're a sucker for smooth talk, just a sucker for smooth talk. 

Sit back and take it all in,
I can't believe that you did it all again,
Wake up, wake up, wake up and realize,
There's nothing better than this, there's nothing better,
You always wanted more,
So I'll call you out in ways you can't ignore,

Line up my silhouette,
Draw me in the way you want to,
Light up a cigarette,
Place the flame do what you thought up,
We're crossing lines in style for miles on this boardwalk,
You're a sucker for smooth talk, just a sucker for smooth talk. 

I'll light a match to start the fire,
To let you know i'm here,
I'm never first, always a mess,
At least I'm always there,
To follow through was something you could never do,
You're just a sucker for smooth talk, a sucker for smooth talk.

LIGHTS OUT!

5. NEVER SAW THIS COMING
Written by Tim Waters and We Are The Movies

TIME OUT! 

Yeah I'm calling your bluff tonight,
I've had about enough of this,
And everywhere I look lies a piece of the lie,
That you told, you know it's really getting old 'cuz
I already know. 

Could you be any less obvious,
Could you be any less obvious,
You know I've figured you out girl,
I put it together now I'm selling you out

Sign off another year,
Head in the atmosphere,
Light up this match and blow,
Cause this is all we know
Another night in the van
Right back to where it began.

Flickering street lights lead a path to nowhere,
Hold on tightly cause I don't know
If I'm coming home tonight,
If I'm coming home at all,

SO DON'T LEAVE THE LIGHT ON JUST YET! 

Sign off another year,
Head in the atmosphere,
Light up this match and blow,
Cause this is all we know
Another night in the van
Right back to where it began.

With a heart and to start it,
I'm picking up the pieces, leaving no regrets,
I'll be gone before this fading summer California sun sets.

Sign off another year,
Head in the atmosphere,
Light up this match and blow,
Cause this is is all we know,

And I'd be lying to myself if I said I wouldn't do this all again,
Yeah the truth is that I miss you,
The truth is that I miss you always.
