Track Name: Quicksand
This place is held together by all the whispers and the lies
People sharing smiles that don't quite meet the eyes
You polish your crown, king of this town
And I'll stay here upon the sidelines

Standing in the rubble of the buildings that we built
And the stories that we told and all the songs that we wrote
Do you ever miss me? I'm afraid to know
So I keep my head down and my pretty mouth closed

Pour me something stronger to help me sleep tonight
I've been awake since Thursday and I ain't feeling right
You were the quicksand I never saw coming
The place where I stopped when I should've kept running

Standing in the rubble of the buildings that we built
And the stories that we told and all the songs that we wrote
Do you ever miss me? I'm afraid to know
So I keep my head down and my pretty mouth closed

You gave me reasons and I shot them down
You laughed in my face but look who's laughing now
She's nineteen and under your thumb
I'll stand on my own two feet and let you think you've won

Standing in the rubble of the buildings that we built
And the stories that we told and all the songs that we wrote
Do you ever miss me? I don't care to know
So I'll stand on my own two feet and let all of this go
Track Name: Rescue Mission
Tonight there are only a few cars on the road
I've got a sunset ahead of me and it's calling me on
And I need to reach my destination
But I can't drive any faster than I already am

I've driven all night just to see you
And I'm beginning to think I've built all this up in my head
It won't be the same as it was in those good ol' days
We will both have changed

Still I will get lost if you get lost with me too

So you get in the car and there's miles of silence
But nothing needs to be said
It's a rescue mission, cross country escapade
To find a home, a place to get to know
Not just always on the road

Still I will get lost if you get lost with me too
I won't go back if you don't want me to
And we can set the world to rights before sunrise
I will get lost

It's nice to feel the passion burning like it used to
Makes a change from all the self indulgent despair
Time has come to make a change
To walk instead of asking to be carried

Still I will get lost if you get lost with me too
I won't go back if you don't want me to
And we can set the world to rights before sunrise
I will get lost, I will get lost

Tonight there are only a few cars on the road
I've got a sunset ahead of me and it's calling me on
