Track Name: Adventures
Running around in circles
hoping to find something new to discover,
something yet undefined.
I’m so fed up with all these boring people
Just give me a chance to live the life that I would love to.

But nobody dares to.
Yeah, nobody wants to.
But I do, I guess that I’ll just walk away.

Give me a chance, and I will leave right away.
Give me a break, and I’ll change my name.
I hope that someday I will be able to say:
‘Sorry but I have to catch this train.’

My heartbeat rushes, my body awake.
The feeling that moment I never replace.
But suddenly my hands are shaking,
I can’t think of anything else.
But the fact that I’m leaving this old town.
Track Name: Semester
My brain’s about to explode,
I can’t control myself
the theories, they block my feelings
I seem heartless as you leave.

But no matter the weather,
I will find you, I will guide you.

I’m sick of losing my friends
It’s hard for me to keep up
with the pace that they’re in.
So wake up,
the good times we had.
‘Cause the memories I have,
they keep me wanting to go back.

I know we all have our dreams
and our goals set up to reach,
and each priority ignored
always gets me.

I think it’s time to rearrange
my schedule as I notice,
I’m struggling to see you.

So sick of losing my friends
It’s hard for me to keep up
with the pace that they’re in.
So wake up, WAKE UP
the good times we had.
‘Cause the memories I have,
they keep me wanting to go back.

You are the reason I try to stay away from school
Without these friends I’d have no idea what I would do

Still sick of losing my friends
It’s hard for me to keep up
with the pace that they’re in.
So wake up, WAKE UP
the good times we had.
‘Cause the memories I have,
they keep me wanting to go back.
Track Name: The Press and The President - The Cell
I’m a mess I’ve been told
And so says my inner clock
My life’s been out of control
Since I got so stuck

In this phenomenon
Simply referred to as a rut
But what do I know now
I will keep my mouth shut

If I’d guess
I know quite what you think
I get asked
So many different things

So what do you want?
World of the faint progress
I will do my job, feeling meaningless

I dunno it feels so different
The fact that I’m alone and
Is there anybody out there?
Is there anybody out there?
Everything it is so distant
Smothered by a system
Is there anybody out there?
Is there anybody out there?

And all the structures fall
Along with my discipline
Oh, It has been so long
Since I tought I fit in

I am the only one
Not passing this simple test
Will I ever return
Will I ever find rest
Track Name: The Press and The President - Broken Glass
Your dream it is collapsing
The pride cuts off your blood stream
And you keep going on and on and on.
on and on and on.

Your lower back is aching
From the weight that you’ve been carrying
Hoping that your troubles will be gone

I hope you are in.
For some major plundering
We’ll steal the dreams that will not last
And let them walk on broken glass

This really isn’t working
But, why can’t you just see it?
At this point you’re just ruining the kids.

‘Cause they will grow up begging
For more, but they are starving
Aching for all they miss.
Track Name: AA & TPATP - Roadtrips and Campfires
My darkroom is a place where
I tend to spend all summer
When all my friends are gone or off with their families

And why don't I acknowledge
That by the time I go to college
I will be running out of cash and memories

And everybody's yelling at me
Tell me that I'm wrong
And everybody's trying to get me to singalong.
But I know, I know, there's no place where I belong.

My head keeps on spinning
and people can't stop screaming
I used to get along.
I'm getting sick and tired
of roadtrips and campfires
I used to get along.

My heart's never been broken
But I have finally chosen
To move on with my life
Instead of waiting all the time.

My longing for those better days
And getting sick of your straight face
Could never hold me back from leaving
Even though I'm barely breathing

But everybody's yelling at me
Tell me that I'm wrong
And everybody's trying to get me to singalong.
But I know, I know, there's no place I can go.

It's over now I'm not upset
About the way we handle that
I was pissed and made a song
And I will make you sing along

It's over now I'm not upset
About the way we handle that
I was pissed and made a song
Now all you suckers sing along
