Lyrics

A Fish Named Dan

Everybody's always saying it's a new kind of planet
But nothing's gonna change if you take it slow
Wake up, the bright side's it isn't how you planned it
Might be time to make a second go

The rain will come down from the clouds
It might turn around, so stay star-bound
Take your foot off the brakes and let's go out

And make them all mother-fuckin proud!

Living here, the weather breaks you down
And grey skies never go away
Day in and out you scream and shout but no one's ever around
To ask you if you're feeling OK

And you're sick of it all; your lease is up in the Fall
Move on to another hole in the wall
Hold your breath
And keep your eye on the ball...
But don't stop swimming

Chorus:
If you're fish out of water
You don't think you want to swim anymore
And you know the world is a bother, but you could go farther
Outside the bowl and get it all
Well I know
That some days
Got you feeling like shit
But pick yourself up; it's all yours, kid
The motto is now that you've gotta

Just keep swimming!
Just keep swimming!

Taking a walk late after dark
The night life's better from afar
It swallows up and spits out those like us

Go back to the walls of your tomb
To the people who knew
That you were better off staying in your room

But show them all what you're going to do
And don't stop swimming

[Chorus]

Bridge:
And if you don't wanna swim anymore
And that's what you know for sure
That this time you've got more
Than you've been asking for
You don't wanna swim anymore

[Chorus]

Just keep swimming! (repeat)

Katarina

You can't read, can't touch what's on the other side
You can't reach me- call back another time
The music never left, but it never felt quite right

The Summer was red, but your hair it was blue
Late nights staying up getting high in our rooms
Spilling out words like the love was brand new

But thinking about it, Babe
Let the truth be told, it was already old
But the look on your face is what's got me sold
On this life all alone

It's the music I hope
That let's you know I'm coming home

Chorus:

Katarina don't cry, it's just for another night
I'm on a plane coming to see you
It's been a really long flight, there's still a lot to drive

But you're gonna be
Sleeping in my arms tonight
For the very first time
Since I left PA behind

Oh yeah, you'll be sleeping in my arms
Tonight

Verse 2:
We have both got demons ghosts and something else
Most of us are hiding it
You are constantly wearing it on
Your face

But you wear it with such grace
And as the smoke blew out the window
Lying on your bedroom floor

Those were the days
We were happy there together
Just letting the sunset in at night

But I got the call and I had to let you know it'll be alright

[Chorus]

Bridge:
And I'm fearing
You'll be leaving
Before I've even had a chance
To say Goodbye

And I'm thinking
About your breathing
Lying on my chest
Matching mine

That's why I'm on this flight

[Chorus]

Katarina...
Katarina...

Peerless

Last night's got me feeling invincible
Now the panic on my face is almost visible

Your rose-red lips look so kissable
But when they stop and stare it's almost predictable

Chorus:
I know that it's fucked up
To think that we could be
More than just two screw-ups

Just wait and see

The mood's alight, I'm scared
When you're with me I am fearless
So we'll take this place by storm
Baby, you and me are Peerless

A little bit unprepared
Show the whole damn world that we're ready to do this
Girl, we'll take the world by storm
You and me are Peerless

Verse 2:
The sky was blue before I met you
Now everything feels new
No space between us, leave me speechless
Out of breath when we come to

From the moment we woke up in your room
We both knew what we wanted to do
With no regrets and feeling fearless
We'll show them all, so that they'll hear us

[Chorus]

Bridge (instrumental)

[Chorus]
(Repeat x2)

FOMO

At school, they said
This would be the party of the year
And then
They told everyone to tell all of their friends

Well after school I got a text
From my best friend who said tonight was gonna be lit
I hope it didn't show, but I couldn't handle it

Two, three, four!

We left, at ten
Loud already,
But the night hadn't even begun
The Trendy Bens and Britneys wearing matching sunbed tans

Does anyone know whose house this is?
Standing in the corner and watching all the kids
The music, the lights, have gone tonight
Wish I was at home, but I'm not so...

Chorus:
I'm so scared of being alone
But far more terrified of staying at home
So I'll try and suck it up
Circling the room with a plastic cup, of

Some beer with light its name
"Hey there, Buddy, I'm so glad you came"
I'll have a drink 'till I've been there long enough
They don't know

My Anxiety is Digging a Hole

Second Verse:

Nine AM
I woke up on the floor holding my head
And my phone had blown up
Everyone wanted to find out what I did

I got so drunk I was all over the place
Made out with some girl and then I threw up on her face
I'm not into gossip, so this time I'm screwed
They've got it all on video and now I'm big news

[Chorus]

Bridge (Instrumental)

Closing Chorus:

I'm so scared of being alone
But far more terrified of staying at home
So I'll try and suck it up
Circling the room with a plastic cup, of

Some beer with light its name
"Hey there, Buddy, what's your name?"
I've had a drink; been there long enough
Now I'll go home

My Anxiety is Digging a Hole
(repeat x3)

Sunsets

A couple of small town kids

Took a trip they thought would be
To a land of lights and shiny cars and
Pinup girls without their bras

And taking turns to drive
Through the middle of the night
Story of a lifetime
Waiting on the sunrise

So

Chorus:
This is a chance at unbelievable
Next stop, a shot at unachievable
These are the stories that we can't take back

Let's get into it
Let's get into it

Drop off the baggage, you don't need at all
Can't you hear the crowd begging you to go on
These are the stories that we can't take back

Let's get into it
Let's get into it

Verse 2:
A couple of small town kids
You can't forget the things they did
With their names in shining colors
Bigger than the others

We all smelled like shit
But no one cared that we did
We moved too fast for it
Taking names and leaving them under the bridge

Floating away
Rather than staying inside all day
It's not a game that we play
It's taking a lie in the holes that we made

//Overlapping vocals//

[Chorus]

+Let's get into it (repeat x4)

Verse 3:
All we lacked was experience at
Keeping our ears to the train tracks
Screaming sad songs to the rooftops
And not going back
Driving off into the sunset

[Repeat Verse 3]

[Chorus overlap with Verse 3]
(repeat x2)

[Chorus]

This is a chance at unbelievable

Let's get into it
Let's get into it

Next stop, a shot at unachievable

Let's get into it
Let's get into it

Let's get into it
Let's get into it

Let's get into it!
Let's get into it!

After 16

Intro (acoustic)
softly: "2, 3, 4"

I took a Sunday drive out with Lois Lane
Think that's what I'll call her, can't remember the name
With hair as wild as a lion's mane
And bright blue eyes that never left me the same

We drove to the house where she used to live
Told stories of good times of when we were kids
We laughed the whole time
With a tear in her eye, she turned to me and she said:

Chorus:
There's life after sixteen
That's what I'll promise you
There's life after nineteen
There's so much for you to go through

Life's short, and we're young
So it all feels like the end
But it's all small because you know
The best part of living these days is getting to go through it all

Verse 2:
Travel around and the moon comes out
Sing to the stars with the windows down, the
Stereo louder than both our mouths
Drowning out what we don't want to think about

The wonderful years that we won't get back
Forgetting to stay on the beaten path
I haven't seen her since we both left
But somehow life's the same

[Chorus]

Bridge (instrumental)

I grew up, and my storms moved on
Suburbs into concrete yards
Thinking back to the night we talked
Growing up's really not that hard...

[Chorus]
(Repeat x2)

Outro (acoustic)

The End

This is the story where we both got drunk
And I met you for the first time

This is the party where I got too high
And I watched you from the couch making eyes at the tall guy

It's the time in the basement of the bar down the road
When one of your girlfriends sent a text to your phone
You stayed out the whole night, then I went home alone

The little things that get played back on instant replay make me sick
The little words you said made me think that you were a part of it

And

You spent all your days trying real hard to make a play, and now

I feel sick.  This is the end.

But this is the end
Of all the times that we break before we bend
But this is the end
But the worst part of this fucking joke is...

This is the part of the story that you've waited for the whole time
This is how you lacked the air of class, and I never questioned why

How did this all go through? You couldn't keep it to yourself
Now I'm questioning why I loved you

And did you ever even really love me too?

But this is the end
Of all the times that we break before we bend
But this is the end
But the worst part of this fucking joke is, you're my...

This is the end, this is the end
The end the the the the the
This is the end, this is the end
The ....

This is the end, this is the end
The end the the the the the

But this is the end
Of all the times that we break before we bend
But this is the end
But the worst part of this fucking joke is, you're my...

Best...

Friend.
