about

"The world is the unquiet city of those who live for themselves and are therefore divided against one another in a struggle that cannot end. It is the city of those who are fighting for possession of limited things and for the monopoly of goods and pleasures that cannot be shared by all. If you try to escape from the world merely by leaving the city and hiding yourself in solitude, you will only take the city with you into solitude. Yet you can be entirely out of the world while remaining in the midst of it, if you let God set you free from your own selfishness and if you live for love alone."

Thomas Merton, New Seeds of Contemplation

Track Name: I Don't Wanna Live (If I Can't Hear Myself Think)
I Don't Wanna Live (If I Can't Hear Myself Think)
Goudreault

There's something in my eyes that I can't see
There's something in my heart that I can't be
I want someone to take me home and give me sex and love
I'm listening to the deadbeat TV tell me what I need
It's a lot of noise, lot of sound, lot of talk

I don't wanna hear it, everything is screaming
I'm on my knees
I don't wanna live if I can't hear myself think
The world is sick and no one knows the fix
I'm on my knees
I don't wanna live if I can't hear myself think

There's something in my hands I hold too tight
There's something in my head that ain't quite right
We're giving all the microphones to hacks who can't sing
We're spending all our time ringing these bells that just don't ring

I don't wanna hear it, everything is screaming
I'm on my knees
I don't wanna live if I can't hear myself think
The world is sick and no one knows the fix
I'm on my knees
I don't wanna live if I can't hear myself think
Please help me

Everything's contagious
We're underneath the veil
We're living like a broken people
Will the future save us?
We're looking to the stars
We're burning like a broken people

I don't wanna hear it, everything is screaming
I'm on my knees
I don't wanna live if I can't hear myself think
The world is sick and no one knows the fix
I'm on my knees
I don't wanna live if I can't hear myself think
Please help me
Track Name: Still Think About You (Nintendo Hearts)
Still Think About You (Nintendo Hearts)
Goudreault/de Souza

On a crawl for the dawn
Sinking deeper into days gone by
I never knew we had it all
Every broken heart came back to life

I never thought we'd miss this
It takes me back to the first kiss
I wonder if we'll ever know
What went wrong

Remember all the days we spent together making out
Around everything we'd never be without
The house of cards is coming down but
Oh, oh, I still think about you

I remember all the games we used to play
With our Nintendo hearts
The games are different now
There's no way we can go back and press start 'cause

We were taking it for granted
We thought id go just like we planned it
And now we'll never figure out
What went wrong

Remember all the days we spent together making out
Around everything we'd never be without
The house of cards is coming down
Oh, oh, I still think about you

In the morning, you will find me
In the morning, you are here
But the morning's never coming
I still cling to what we had

Remember all the days we spent together making out
Everything was so simple

Remember all the days we spent together making out
Around everything we'd never be without
The house of cards is coming down
Oh, oh, I still think about you

Take me back to our Nintendo hearts
I want sunshine and simple love

I still think about you
Track Name: Katy Perry
Katy Perry
Goudreault/de Souza/Mahaffey

I don't wanna be here
Dealing with another broken heart
Is there anybody else here?
Feeling like I'm dancing in the dark

Everyone's looking for a good time
Everyone's looking for a place to spend the night
But I'm still dealing with a goodbye
And something 'bout this club just don't feel right

Cuz all I hear is that bang, bang in my head
I'm drowning in the shallow girls and boys
I'm thinking I'm better off dead
Come fill me up, my heart's half empty

Who are you? Please stay
Cause you're all I want
I gotta know your name
We only got one night, that's all it takes

I didn't wanna be here
Then I saw you hiding in the walls
And that's enough for me to stay here
'Cause girl I'm hoping both of us could fall

Don't put another drink in my hand
I'm gonna need my hand to hold your heart
So do you really want to stay here?
Don't you wanna find a quiet place for once?

When all we hear is this bang, bang in our heads
We're drowning in the shallow girls and boys
I'm thinking I'm better off dead
Come fill me up, my heart's half empty

Who are you? Please stay
Cause you're all I want
I gotta know your name
We only got one night, that's all it takes

I saw you in the club
You are the girl I want
And when you look my way
I got a beating heart
I wanna know your name
Put your hands into mine
Let's go somewhere tonight
You make me feel alive
Track Name: The Kids Aren't Alright
The Kids Aren't Alright
Goudreault/Bruchert

I see you stumbling up and down these streets
There's something missing when I look into your eyes
Your father's back was void of its bones
He didn't fight for you when you needed him the most
Inconvenient child

This time, the kids aren't alright
We're not doing fine
Digging in the skin just to feel alive, feel alive
This time, the kids aren't alright
We're broken inside
Praying to the sky but we're not alive, not alive

Your lover left a hole in your soul
Wasted, molested, left for dead, and all alone
And I'm afraid to feel for you heart
To find out all the lies that you believe you are
Living half alive, running from the light

This time, the kids aren't alright
We're not doing fine
Digging in the skin just to feel alive, feel alive
This time, the kids aren't alright
We're broken inside
We're praying to the sky but we're not alive, not alive

I wear a million different faces for every single stare
When you live without a future, there's no reason to care
Just this feeling of abandon, desperate and alone
I don't know the way it goes
Everyone is dying to find a home

This time, the kids aren't alright
We're not doing fine
Digging in the skin just to feel alive, feel alive
This time, the kids aren't alright
We're broken inside
We're praying to the sky
We're dying to feel alive
Track Name: Corner of Your Lips
Corner of Your Lips
Goudreault/Boskovich

Tell me every single secret
Tell me every single lie
Girl, I don't know if I can save you
Put out this flame without catching on fire

We aren't supposed to be alone now
But there's nobody here to see
Let down your defense
Come on, let me in
I'm gonna cure poison

Too late for running, already falling
I don't wanna go down like this
Could it be harmless? Baby I promise
It's just a kiss on the corner of your lips

Don't know where you got your pain from
You're always putting up a fight
What you really need is love, dear
But I can't give that to you that tonight

Too late for running, already falling
I don't wanna go down like this
Could it be harmless? Baby I promise
It's just a kiss on the corner of your lips

I know I said I would pull you out
But it feels so good sinking down
And I worked so hard just to build your faith
I never thought it'd come to this

Too late for running, already falling
Didn't wanna go down like this
Could it be harmless? Baby I promise
It's just a kiss on the corner of your lips

I wish it was just a kiss on the corner of you lips
Track Name: Suitcase
Suitcase
Goudreault/Steckley

When you left, singing all your plans
I was looking up, I thought that you were perfect
When you went away, I counted every day
Praying you'd come home and somehow take me with you

Time goes by so slowly when you're gone

Take me away, hide me in your suitcase
And I'll follow you wherever you go
I'm your perfect fit
And you know you could use some company
I'll be there just in case, hide me in your suitcase

All those times we had, making our big plans
I remember all the Chinese food and kisses
Was I in your way? Is there something I can say
That would make your suitcase big enough to fit me?

Time goes by so slowly when you're gone

Take me away, hide me in your suitcase
And I'll follow you wherever you go
I'm your perfect fit
And you know you could use some company
I'll be there just in case, hide me in your suitcase

All our secret maps, endless fields of laughs
Fold me into everything you do
Cardboard airline food, taxis, hotel rooms
Every single everyday with you

Take me away, hide me in your suitcase
And I'll follow you wherever you go
I'm your perfect fit
And you know you could use some company
I'll be there just in case, hide me in your suitcase

All our secret maps, endless fields of laughs
Fold me into everything you do
Cardboard airline food, taxis, hotel rooms
Every single everyday with you
Track Name: Everybody's Gotta Die Sometime
Everybody's Gotta Die Sometime
Goudreault/de Souza

Earthquakes, hurricanes
Everybody's gotta die sometime
Broke back, heart attack
Never gonna find the right way to live

I saw the flowers that I bought you dying on the front lawn
Guess I'm not the one who turns you on, oh yeah

Maybe the fighting that we did finally put you to your limit
My sister's always asking when you're gonna come to visit

I got a running list of things I'll never understand
For now I'll just accept that everybody's gotta die, oh yeah

Earthquakes, hurricanes
Everybody's gotta die sometime
Broke back, heart attack
Never gonna find the right way to live
Track Name: Burn Before We're Gone
Burn Before We're Gone
Goudreault

I've never seen the streets so empty
I look around and all I see are faces made of stone
I/we haven't seen the sun in so long
We are still so young but
All our futures feel like memories from the days
When we weren't living so afraid

We put away the fire and we let it die

If that's what they really tell you
That the good die young
We better burn before we're gone
Burn before we're gone
Isn't that what they tell you?
That the good die young
We better burn before we're gone

I traded in my hands and feet for
A new computer power-up to fix my heart
Tell me where did you go?
Is this the world we're building?
We're so desperate for a place to call our own
Why do I feel so alone?

We put away the fire and we let it die

If that's what they really tell you
That the good die young
We better burn before we're gone
Burn before we're gone
Isn't that what they tell you?
That the good die young
We better burn before we're gone

There's fire inside our hearts
That's stuff we're meant to burn out, baby
There's hope inside our guts
That's stuff we're meant to burn out, baby

I don't wanna fade away
Track Name: Father
Father
Goudreault

Oh, I am living
With a seed, with a curse, with a lie deep in my mind
Oh, I am speaking
But the words that I say never seem to come out quite right

I know that you see every struggle, every pause, every fear in me
And I pray every day that you'd make it easy

It's never been harder
To close my eyes and call you Father
It's never been harder
To close my eyes and call you Father

Oh, I am trying
To believe all the prayers that I say out loud
But oh, oh, oh, it's so hard to cling
To any faith at all when the whole world's screaming

So it's my cross to bear
And I'll bear it with a song and they'll all sing along
I know the shadow proves the sunshine
But it's so hard to see you sometimes

It's never been harder
To close my eyes and call you Father
It's never been harder
But I still close my eyes and call you Father

I'm screaming
Father
Track Name: Fair Fight
Fair Fight
Goudreault/Kalinauskas/Goudreault/Wong

We ain't getting any younger
What we have, they don't want
Set her free, she locks herself back up

We got some bullets in our bass drums
Battle scars in our guitars
We drive all night, we come so far

I need a fair fight
I need a little sunshine
I'm never gonna give it up now
I need a fair fight / Give me a fair fight

I swear it gets a little colder
The more I try
Why do I feel like a soldier?
Walk into battle with me

I'm running out of my blood, sweat and tears
You're screaming Mickey Mouse in my ears
Like all I need's a little motivation

I need a fair fight
I need a little sunshine
I'm never gonna give it up now
I need a fair fight / Give me a fair fight

We're just trying to get something done
We're just trying to stand in the sun
We're just trying to write what we know
We're just trying to find our way home
Take me home
