1. Chasing Ghosts
Will they remember my name when I'm gone
(when they know what I did was so fucking wrong)
Put the steel to my wrist, lost the breath in my chest
(just to forget all the wrongs I had left)
I took the exit, left my friends in the gutter
(left my life right behind me, left myself, left it all)
Left myself, left it all, not a falter, not a stutter
Not a note, and now?
(there’s nothing at all)

Are you at all haunted by memories past?
Are you ready to make this one breath your last?
Is your chest so heavy you're ready to leave?
Or are you just hoping that someone will grieve?

And now we roll on...
I'm gone now,
I don't remember much,
I just know that I would have been better off if I had stayed,
Spoken to a friend,

Let my heart keep on beating and not given it all up
For the grave, for the grave
There's no one there on the other side (other side)
There's nothing more than what I had.
There's no ghost left to haunt you so you know I'm still here,
Just the end of my life nothing left here at all.
There's no memories here, just the regrets of the dead,
Please don't follow my footsteps - cherish all you have left.

Are you at all haunted by memories past?
Are you ready to make this one breath your last?
Is your chest so heavy you’re ready to leave?
Or are you just hoping that someone will grieve?

There's no one there on the other side
(there's no one there on the other side)
There's nothing more than what I had
(there's no ghost left to haunt you).

There's no ghosts
There's no memories here
Just the regrets of the dead
Please don't follow in my footsteps
Cherish all you have left

There's no memories here (memories here)
Just the regrets of the dead (regrets of the dead)
Please don't follow in my footsteps (my footsteps)
Cherish all you have left.

Are you at all haunted by memories past?
Are you ready to make this one breath your last?
Is your chest so heavy you’re ready to leave?
Or are you just hoping that someone will grieve?

Are you at all haunted by memories past? (memories past)
Are you ready to make this one breath your last? (breath your last)
Is your chest so heavy you’re ready to leave? (ready to leave)
Or are you just hoping that someone will grieve? (someone will grieve)
2. Life Underground
You speak my name and shudder, but I'm still here.
I built a bridge here just to burn it, just to light my faded path,
So I could see what's down below me, because how I yearn to see you laugh.
Oh how I yearn to see you laugh.

So selfish were my footsteps and so foolish are they now,
But there's not much I can do here now that I'm living underground.
Speak now my precious whispers, float softly through the breeze,
Please float on by my loved ones and let them know that I'm still here...

You speak my name and shudder, but I'm still here,
I built a bridge here just to burn it, just to light my faded path,
So I could see what's down below me, because how I yearn to see you laugh.

So selfish were my footsteps and so foolish are they now,
But there's not much I can do here now that I'm living underground.
Speak now my precious whispers, float softly through the breeze,
Please float on by my loved ones and let them know that I'm still here...

And we sing woah oh woah, our voices carry through the hills.
Woah oh woah oh, the whole world is standing still. We're singing for the dead,
For the lost, and for the stolen
Our hearts beat double time, and oh they feel so broken, oh how they feel so broken.

Is this really what I wished for
When I felt my feet drag heavy on the earth?
Is this really the answer I sought when I was searching for self worth?
Go now precious whispers, float my sorrows into the sea,
Let the waves collapse above me, and wash away my fucking memory.

So selfish were my footsteps and so foolish are they now,
But there's not much I can do here now that I'm living underground.
Speak now my precious whispers, float softly through the breeze,
Please float on by my loved ones and let them know that I'm still here...
3. R.I.P. Bon
I was waiting for you man, right down there by the sea
Where we used to meet, to share in our pain and decry misery.
I waited, I waited, I waited I swear,
But when I got down to the ocean, man, you were not fucking there,

I just wish that you spoke up and held out your hand
Because you know I was there, man, you know that I cared.

I waited for you but you never came, no, you never came
And now that you're gone I feel I'm to blame, yeah, I feel I'm to blame

I wanted to hear it, I wanted to know.

I've been grieving so much with each passing day,
But I'm angry and hurt and I hate you all the same.

I just wish that you spoke up and held out your hand
Because you know I was there, man, you know that I cared.

I waited for you but you never came, no, you never came
And now that you're gone I feel I'm to blame, yeah, I feel I'm to blame

I know now you hated life even more with each breath,
I know now that you did not have any fight left.

To know you were grieving with each passing day (I know you were grieving with each passing day)
And to know most of all you did not want to stay (and I know most of all you did not want to stay)
And you know you were grieving with each passing day.

I waited for you but you never came, no, you never came
And now that you're gone I feel I'm to blame, yeah, I feel I'm to blame

Did I never listen? did I never show, did I never show?
'Cause I wanted to hear. I wanted to hear it, I wanted to know.
I wanted to know.
4. Open Letter
This is my open letter,
This is something to remember.
I won't be buried before my time,
I'm not searching for forever,
I've got my eyes opened wide,

I've been searching under rubble from the past,
Just looking for a reason to make your life last.
No need to look skyward for you to find hope,
No need for redemption to be saved from the rope,

Fuck, no!

Well, I'm not searching the sky for a reason to live
'Cause I found beauty right here and the passion to give,
So let me give you my heart, let me give you my tears,
Let me give you my life, let me give you my fears.

Just so you can hold on and sing while I do, sing these words out so loud,
Like I sing them for you.
This is your open letter, something to remember,
We can still keep on fighting even though life is not forever.

Well, I'm not searching the sky for a reason to live
'Cause I found beauty right here and the passion to give,
So let me give you my heart, let me give you my tears,
Let me give you my life, let me give you my fears.

This is my open letter, this is something to remember.
This is my open letter, I'm not searching for forever.

Well, I'm not searching the sky for a reason to live
'Cause I found beauty right here and the passion to give,
So let me give you my heart, let me give you my tears,
Let me give you my life, let me give you my fears.

One more time!

I'm not searching the sky for a reason to live
'Cause I found beauty right here and the passion to give,
So let me give you my heart, let me give you my tears,
Let me give you my life, let me give you my fears.
5. Greens Avenue
I'll never know what led me down that path,
what made me lose my grasp (what made me lose my grasp).
But now the years have passed and I know in my heart,
no matter where I am. I won't follow that path.
There are things that I've said there are people I've hurt,
there are moments in time when I've been down in the dirt
and I know that it's hard to let go of our pasts
but in each one of us there is hope for fresh starts.

So if I hurt you, if I let you down just remember we were close, we were down.
I found life, I found this and it's all of your strength that got me through it.

Just know that I know you went through the same shit,
even if you were too fucking proud to admit.
So brothers in arms, let's march home towards calm,
towards oceans and shorelines with open arms.

So if I hurt you, if I let you down just remember we were close, we were down.
I found life, I found this and it's all of your strength that got me through it.

So brothers in arms, let's march home towards calm,
towards oceans and shorelines with open arms. [x4]

So if I hurt you, if I let you down just remember we were close, we were down.
I found life, I found this and it's all of your strength that got me through it.

I'll never know what led me down that path,
what made me lose my grasp (what made me lose my grasp).
But now the years have passed and I know in my heart,
no matter where I am I won't follow that path.
6. I Heart H.C.
I know you feel like you're the only one,
Like you've had enough, like you should just give up,
Like you don't give a fuck,

But let me tell you my friends that when it ends it just ends,
There's no afterlife you don't come back from death; [x2]

So when you leave this earth, when your heart stops you'll see,
There's no choir of angels there's no gods to meet.

You leave friends, you leave family, leave lovers, leave home.
Then you'll be on your own.

So let me tell you my friends that when it ends it just ends,
There's no afterlife you don't come back from death:

So when you leave this earth, when your heart stops you'll see,
There's no choir of angels there's no gods to meet.

There's no afterlife you don't come back from death;
Just know this my friend as you let go of hope,
As you struggle with your life and grip tightly that rope,

So when you leave this earth, when your heart stops you'll see,
There's no choir of angels there's no gods to meet. [x2]

There is love to be found if you'll just open your heart,
There is light to be found when you are lost in the dark,
There are people who'll listen and people who care
And I know this my friend because I too have been there.
There's no afterlife you don't come back from death.
7. Flowerbomb
Well I know there's been times when I wished I would die,
but I swear yeah I swear oh I swear I'm past that,
and I'll swear if you will that I will not look back,
yeah I swear if you will that I will not look back.

Take a deep breath now, pass the shallows,
stay steady and hold on, through the darkness we all know.

And I swear yeah I swear yeah I swear if you will,
to hold onto life, yeah I'll hold on if you will...

So on to the ocean and into the sea, so balanced and calm now, that's where I will be.
So on to the ocean and into the sea wash away all my problems wash away memories.

Back then - always through the shattered glass
I stared at my life, and oh I wished I would die,
but I swear yeah I swear oh I swear I'm past that -
is this all what it seems - I can't believe that I made it.
Take a deep breath now, pass the shallows,
stay steady and hold on, through the darkness we all know -
And I swear yeah I swear yeah I swear if you will, to hold onto life,
yeah I'll hold on if you will...

So on to the ocean and into the sea, so balanced and calm now, that's where I will be.
So on to the ocean and into the sea wash away all my problems wash away memories.

Take a deep breath now, pass the shallows,
stay steady and hold on, through the darkness we all know.

And I swear yeah I swear yeah I swear if you will,
to hold onto life, yeah I'll hold on if you will...

So on to the ocean and into the sea, so balanced and calm now, that's where I will be.
So on to the ocean and into the sea wash away all my problems wash away memories.
8. Pabst Blue Ribbon on Ice
Remember, remember the times when we were younger,
when we shed our tears many times close together.
Remember remember the days left behind,
and the words lost between us in the valleys of time.
Remember my friend now remember my lover,
when I told you that I'd never recover.
And remember the cold stormy weather,
and the promise I made I'd love you forever.
I meant it I swear that I meant it forever.

If my eyes are the oceans that put your head in the clouds
then your heart is the reason I keep my feet on the ground.
I've just watched the world turning, kept my head held up high,
kept my feet on the ground, kept the hope in my eyes.

I mean't it I swear that I meant it and mean it,
and after that time I will always repeat it,
I love you I swear and I won't let you go,
that's something I really need you to know.
Remember my friend now remember my lover
when I told you that I would never recover? Well...

If my eyes are the oceans that put your head in the clouds
then your heart is the reason I keep my feet on the ground.
I've just watched the world turning, kept my head held up high,
kept my feet on the ground, kept the hope in my eyes.

I love you I swear and I won't let you go,
that's something that I really need you to know. [x2]
And then you embraced me with your entire being,
and we were carried away off to a peaceful sea...

If my eyes are the oceans that put your head in the clouds
then your heart is the reason I keep my feet on the ground.
I've just watched the world turning, kept my head held up high,
kept my feet on the ground, kept the hope in my eyes.
9. Geof Sux 666
I know you're sinking deeper, every breath a straining gasp.
And I know you're wishing 'please death, just make this breath my last'
but there's life out there for living,
my friend we will not give in, take these words and let the light in,
we'll give you everything worth giving.
I heard a story from a friend about you just last night,
about you swinging by your neck there in the softly fading light -
man you've gotta call you've gotta write you've gotta leave -
get back to all your friends and all the places you should be.
You're too lonesome man, I get it, I've been there once before.

And I know you're wishing 'please death, just make this breath my last'
but there's life out there for living,
my friend we will not give in, take these words and let the light in,
we'll give you everything worth giving.

I've sailed the stormy seas, I've felt my heart rise in my throat,
I've thought of leaving all my friends and thought of letting go:
but I found life left in these limbs and found the strength to start again,
I found my heart right in my hands and found relief in all my friends.

Don't Give Up!
Don't Give Up!

But I found life left in these limbs and found the strength to start again,
I found my heart right in my hands and found relief in all my friends.

but there's life out there for living,
my friend we will not give in, take these words and let the light in,
we'll give you everything.

I know you're sinking deeper, every breath a straining gasp.
And I know you're wishing 'please death, just make this breath my last'
but there's life out there for living,
my friend we will not give in, take these words and let the light in,
we'll give you everything worth giving.
10. Bondi St. Blues
I spent my time back then thinking of nothing but them,
the dead ends of my thoughts the last friends in my head:
and you heard me you heard me you heard me my friend,
sent the ship over seas to save me from death.
Through the storms I have weathered through the dark and the rain,
you sent me the ship that I sail on today.
And the boat sails on like you sang in your song,
and my mind feels clearer several years on.

And the ship that was sailing on,
those storm ridden seas
was my heart and your words gave my heart back to me.

My mind was a turbine that fueled all the storms,
and those words were the courage in which calmness took form.
Through the storms I have weathered
through the dark and the rain,
you sent me the ship that I sail on today.

And the boat sails on like you sang in your song,
and my mind feels clearer several years on.
And the ship that was sailing on,
those storm ridden seas
was my heart and your words gave my heart back to me.

I've found life, found the strength in myself to grow up
I've found friends, and the strength and the want to live
And the ship that was sailing on,
those storm ridden seas
was my heart and your words gave my heart back to me.
Through the storms I have weathered
through the dark and the rain,

And the boat sails on like you sang in your song,
and my mind feels clearer several years on. [x3]

And the ship that was sailing on,
those storm ridden seas
was my heart and your words gave my heart back to me.
