Track Name: How the Midwest Was Won
I've got my eyes set west
Just like your back pressed hard against my bed
I'm writing off our dead end story
And I'm wearing down this conversation
You're drunk, but no relation
And I won't be here when you sober up

I've got these friends by my side
And I'm leaving this all behind
No, I'm not worried
You're just the same old story, sorry but I'm over you

We've got our eyes set west
So drink up and place your bets
Here's a toast, here's a toast
To the outlaws that we call friends
We've got our eyes set west
So drink up and place your bets
Here's a toast, here's a toast to when we draw
Aim for the heart, shoot from the hip

Shoot from the hip
We draw first blood
To make you a man (or a bodybag)
Ten paces on my count

I've got these friends by my side
And I'm leaving this all behind
No, I'm not worried
You're just the same old story, sorry but I'm over you

We've got our eyes set west
So drink up and place your bets
Here's a toast, here's a toast
To the outlaws that we call friends
We've got our eyes set west
So drink up and place your bets
Here's a toast, here's a toast to when we draw
Aim for the heart, shoot from the hip

Bullets in the back you never had
And I've still got my friends,
And another for the back of your head
Bullets in the back you never had
And I've still got my friends,
And another one for...

We've got our eyes set west
So drink up and place your bets
Here's a toast, here's a toast
To the outlaws that we call friends
We've got our eyes set west
So drink up and place your bets
Here's a toast, here's a toast to when we draw
Aim for the heart

To when we draw - shoot from the hip
Track Name: Wake Me Up When We're Underwater
We’re always sinking away
To the bottom of this ocean that you left us in
You’ll call it treason, I’ll call it mutiny
But I’d rather be a body than alone with you out here

I hope they find me washed up on shore
Cause if I’m coughing up my lungs
The hope of ever finding you is gone
You’re all alone as I cross the line
In the sand that you’d drawn
And when the wind picks up again you will be gone

We’re always sinking away
To the bottom of this ocean that you left us in
You’ll call it treason, I’ll call it mutiny
But I’d rather be a body than alone with you out here

So think fast – you wouldn’t want to get your hair wet
Your priorities intact here at the bottom of this wreck
You’re the cement I’ve had my feet in
That pulls me down and stops my breathing
The only place that I’ve been sleeping is with the fishes
And you’ve been sleeping with him
Keep it all a secret until you forget how to swim

We’re always sinking away
To the bottom of this ocean that you left us in
You’ll call treason, I’ll call it mutiny
But I’d rather be a body than alone with you out here

You could’ve done anything
But you’re sleeping with him
Keep it all a secret
The only one you’ll ever tell again

I’m sorry god,
I’m all out of options
And this paranoia’s getting worse
Living with a ghost of her like everyone she cursed
And even now I hear her voice,
It’s calling me to sea
If seeing is believing then I’ll believe it’s all a dream

We’re always sinking away
To the bottom of this ocean that you left us in
You’ll call treason, I’ll call it mutiny
But I’d rather be a body than alone with you out here
I’d rather be a body than alone with you
