Track Name: The Need To Dismantle
“The Need to Dismantle”
Lyrics by Matthew Schwartz and Vincent Cellucci

I’ll say what you need me to
Just please come back and fight
I promise that you’ll find, that I’m

No more perfect than your scars
Chase the blame around
What’s lost cannot be found, because

True is true
I may explode with you
But no one else will do
So I’ll hold my breath
And count to ten
And hope that we’re still here

I suddenly missed your voice
And all those little things
Like you tapping on the keys. Do you

Remember when we had it all?
We lied each word we wrote
I didn’t mean to dote...oh well

You, take me and make me new
You soldered someone through
All the pins and screws and wires
I’m gonna hold you tight
Ignore all patents in sight
You need me to dismantle too

Everyone else was wrong
I know I've said before
If I could just recall, that’s right

“No one quite knows what we have
They only know you’re bad
Not completing what I lack”

No matter where we end tonight
I’m open to fall apart
If you’re open to fall apart, I’ll say….
Track Name: Beautiful
“Beautiful”
Lyrics by Matthew Schwartz and Vincent Cellucci

Going out again
Hand me down of friends
To where the lights are dim
Throwing whiskey to the
Wind, within
Wisps up a grin
Turned up volume
Strobe lights and limbs


Tonight’s the night we get break this mold
Pry off complacency’s grip and lonely's hold
Can you feel the bass is thumping
Oh my heart pumping
The dance floor brings me back to life

Where did the music go?
Why is everything so slow?
Passing through the crowded flow we meet
Hips in hands and breath heavy
Track Name: Go Alone
“Go Alone”
Lyrics by Matthew Schwartz and Vincent Cellucci

Throw your hands up high
Don’t give it up just yet
Because I can see the sky
No use in blaming light

Because
You’ve got a/the right
You know I/we can’t replace it
But you’ve got your strife/a knife
I don't have to say it
I know I know aren’t we all archaic
I know I know I know I know

When you go out
You need to be the one who
Risked everything you go through

All the times we survived our shortfalls and their calls
Out of the fallout, we go alone
Tied to the mast, reborn
Blindfolds overboard, we go alone
Track Name: In Love
“In Love”
Lyrics by Matthew Schwartz and Vincent Cellucci

The sun woke me up with
A horizon so warm that I’d forget
The frozen, I can’t move

Motion is slow
With falling snow
Time burns so fast
Fueled by our past
The air hangs my breath
In Love

Winter comes and chills
I’m shivering though my heart is still
The flicker to fulfill
Track Name: Obsolete
“Obsolete”
Lyrics by Matthew Schwartz and Vincent Cellucci

These were the times I always dreamed about
These were the nights we got to play them out
Bright lights, blurred lines, rehearsed, not right
All of our sweat and tears drowned out in applause

I don’t want you to go
I don’t want cracks to show
I don’t want dreams to be obsolete
I don’t want you to go

When it let out I said, “I want to cry”
I promised I would, but I guess that was a lie
Fist over lips, stage over pit, shadows over fire
I know I said it, I cannot forget it, but after death, comes back for more
Track Name: If Love Is Love (Then Let Us Try)
“If Love Is Love (Then Let Us Try)”
Lyrics by Matthew Schwartz and Vincent Cellucci

I’ve got to speed this walk into a run
Never Apologize
Never Apologize

Because God knows what we’ve become
What will love allow?
What will love allow?

Trip mines know that we’ve arrived
All the ways are wrong
All the ways are wrong

Finally these eyes conceal the blind
Open to the sound
Open to the sound

I know
Let’s shed the hup to baby we know “wrong” is right
Money settles all minds honey you blamed suits and ties
Flush notions hold us sweetie, movement keeps us alive
If love is love then let us try

Pulling out your gun again
Like that's the only way that we succumb
Staking claim, enemy ground
Can thrust the volcanic crowd to the core

Wait, I’m depending on you now
If we run away can change remain?
Hate, the worst of your attributes,
Confiscated all of our waiting
Track Name: The Shadow Of You
“The Shadow of You”
Lyrics by Matthew Schwartz and Vincent Cellucci

All of these lights
They sounded so close
When the world was so wrong
You tamed the storm
Hold on

Between every move
When we adopted the holes
We named every leak
I held you close


Hold on
We’ll wait this through
How’er long
It takes with you
All I know is


When the grave hit the ground
And we dug down
Each finding our vice
Slipping ever more close
Hold on

Carrying the decimals
Speaking clumsy codes
Combing online accounts
But we made it out

Cause I don’t wanna wake up
Earth can’t stir us

With all the tragedy
Befallen blood, floods, and falling
You’re the net I need
Keeping me so still now I can sleep

Every day that’s ceased since I first reached for someone or something
Lies lost in the shadow of you
Track Name: Stuffy
“Stuffy”
Lyrics by Matthew Schwartz and Vincent Cellucci

Get alone
Get yourself a home
With some room to roam
You’re always wrapped up in “true love” again
God’s “perfect medicine”
But what you’re suggesting
Isn’t the only way to win

It’s another space for me to try
I’ll see it your way if you promise to see it mine
We believed it all
Built it up to fall
Pushing norms up to mortar a wall
Why are we
One, two destined to make three?
Oh this life
Of “true love”

Is it true that I will survive without love
Yes, I’m fine without love
I can breathe... free and be fine without love
Am I fine without love?
Oh yes, it’s true not love
True not love

Hold up wait now
I refuse to dumb it down
Who are you to determine the fate of what I need right now
Know it all, weigh it all, only a measure of your gall
Who my friend ordained you to sit and represent us all
No, I don’t concede to one “authority”
No matter how stuffy society makes me, I’ve broken free
I need you to know that I can be alone

Is it true that I will survive without love
Am I fine without love?
It’s true
Track Name: Talk All Night
“Talk All Night”
Lyrics by Matthew Schwartz and Vincent Cellucci

I don’t wanna fight
No I don’t wanna be left out in the cold
And we could talk all night
Just not another night left out of my soul
No one needs to be cussed out, cast out, search for another
Let’s stay up, stay near, let's stay lovers
And not fight
Cause I don’t wanna be left out in the cold

Say what you will my ears cannot hear that now
Do what you want my heart can take no more
We won’t break up if we’d only bite our tongues
Swallowing time as if it were our blood
But it’s 1, 2, 3, 4 days until I lose my mind

Confidence gets confused with arrogance
And arrogance won’t help us with benevolence
Every way I can say it
I believe that I’ve said it
But with you words could fail me
‘Til dawn turns all back around
Track Name: NO, Monster
“No Monster”
Lyrics by Matthew Schwartz and Vincent Cellucci

Wake up Annie
Don’t you cry
Wake up Annie
You’ll be alright

The monster’s gone and I am here right now
Protecting your tears, you can let it out

Cheer up Annie
Don’t you cry
Cheer up Annie
You’re alright


The claws and fangs that want to hold you prey
Can't cross the moat we formed. . . they’re gone to stay

When the morning comes we’ll be the only ones to rise
The monster shriveled and died
With the night

It’s over. . .
Track Name: New Manchester, GA
“New Manchester, GA”
Lyrics by Matthew Schwartz and Vincent Cellucci

All these miles are bound
By staggered trees, industry sounds
Suffocating city limits, tied up like a noose

Each of us, we caved
Beneath expectant dreams and laid
Hoping for someone, or something to come pull us out

I won’t
I won’t be buried here anymore

Again?
We work our hands to the bone
Again?
Just to get to where, Lord only knows?

Alright we’ll escape or die trying
You can have my ghost but you can’t have me
It's amazing what you see in the rearview

I’m not ashamed of who I am
What I’ve become or where I stand
Some towns cannot cradle what they contain

When you finally hear the thunder
Surely you have seen the light
When you finally hear that thunder
Track Name: The Loneliest Man In The World
“The Loneliest Man in the World”
Lyrics by Matthew and Eva Schwartz and Vincent Cellucci

Wandering around again
Oh sweet catastrophe
It took me a while to see
To find a friend in me

Is there escape?

All of the waves that crash
And pull me down for keeps
Holding my breath again
Drowns me down beneath

You said you knew it all
Just how I’d fall again
But if that were true my friend
Then where should I begin?

Here goes nothing

All of the waves that crash
And push me down for keeps
I’ll wait for current’s hold
To pull me up to breathe

For I am the loneliest man...
There ever was
