Track Name: Bats!Bats!Bats!Bats!Bats!
They get through, I can't move
Gotta sleep with the lights on
I'm nervous and I'm tired
I don't want the lights

Knock me out, kill the lights, make em go away
I got bats in the belfry

She say, "Stay calm. No need for the lights on".
Oh, lord, take them or me. I don't want the lights.

The walls are alive, there's shadows in the sky.
I can't sleep with all the bats in the belfry.
Track Name: The Rain
In the dark of night in a dead end town
We dreamed of a place in the sun.
We don't have much, we ask for nothing
But a little piece of the sun.

We lived our lives to the dime
At night we dreamed of better days
We spent our lives searching for the sunshine
So tell me why I miss the rain.

We struggled to be a little more than reckless and young
All we ask is a little piece of the sun.
Spread them wings, you know we can't stay here forever
We're on our way to a place in the sun

We lived our lives to the dime
We're all dogs without our day
We spent our lives searching for the sunshine
So tell me why I miss the rain.

A few more hours in the day
A few less for you and me
You gotta wake up and face the grind
You gotta focus on the prize
And there's no more feeling young.
Track Name: The Going Gets Tuff
I'm about to go on a jet far from home
The day is coming up, I've got it marked down
And I know exactly when I'll be home
But that don't make it easier to go.

I won't be gone for all that long
You'll get along just fine
I'll be back in your arms in the blink of an eye
But that don't make it easier.
That don't make me wanna go.

I won't miss my job.
It don't mean a thing to me.
No, I won't miss my friends.
They might not even know I'm gone.
I won't miss anything but you.

And that won't make it easier to go.

I know that when I go
I'll turn my head with a smile
A stone in my throat, and tears in your eyes.
And that won't make it easier.
That won't make me wanna go.

I won't miss this town.
It'll be here when I get home.
I won't miss this house.
The cats, the comfort, or the cold.
I won't miss anything but you.
Track Name: We Are the Whale
We are the whale watchers.
We watch whales.
We don't rock the boat.
We don't make a sound.
We are the whale.
