The Ready Set Agustus And The Holiday

Hypothetically I say that I don’t go

Would it open your eyes?

Would it leave me alone?

If I say that I won’t go

I memorize lines

On things I wouldn’t comprehend or care

With great motivation I craft illustrations

I don’t care for anyone but us two now

See I’ve got some goals to meet

And you’ve got some things to read

It might sound strange

But it’s the same on different plains

Oh, drift along my little wind chime

Made of porcelain and glass that I refined

Oh, you will find me in the springtime

You’ll be a butterfly but I’ll keep my cocoon

You wished it all, you wished it all

You wished it all away

I’ll wish it all, I’ll wish this all away

I’ll change my life today

I’ll let you know, I’ll let you know that

I won’t be gone too long

Still-frame that photograph I gave you

And keep it deep inside

Just let me know, just let me know

Despite if we argue, I need, hold, and love you

This is nothing new, you know we’ve done this before

This is nothing new, I think that we can take more

With much hesitation, begin contemplation

Jump from your window into my arms right now

We’ll take I-69, pay no mind to exit signs

Because we’re living free for the first time right now

Sing along, my little songbird

When you hear your favorite melody arise

Oh, if I called her Carolina

Would it bring back summer memories that passed?

You wished it all, you wished it all

You wished it all away

I’ll wish it all, I’ll wish this all away

I’ll change my life today

Blue eyes, watch like fire

The sea of faces ’til we drown

Keep calm, act like nothing happened

We won’t be found out

And I would never let you down

I would never let you down

But this is something I must do

This is something I must do for myself, oh

You wished it all, you wished it all

You wished it all away

Oh, I wish it all, I’ll wish this all away

I’ll change my life today

When summer gets here I’ll start new

I’ll shade my eyes and think of you

Monday will be Friday

The only things I’ll keep the same

Are my missed notes and my slight frame

I’ll even change my name

I’ll even change my name

The Ready Set Upsets And Downfalls

It’s hard to write out an apology

Am I the person I’m supposed to be

Cause I’m a lover in a fighter’s club

If my words fail to hold true

Then I think you should know

(Should know, should know)

I couldn’t tell you to leave if I had to

But I can’t make you believe that I want you

So please come over and I’ll make right

All the sad nights and hard lines

And I will look you in the eye

Cause it’s not over yet

Here we go

Give me your heart

Because I need it like I used to

You are a star shining down on me

I had a chance

And the chance is that

Baby this is all I need

See I’ve been running races on my own time

Shutting out the people

Who have stuck with me my whole life

So if there’s something I could say

To re-stitch the ties that I let fray

Then I would surely patch that tear

Cause loose ends can go nowhere

Give me your heart

Because I need it like I used to

You are a star shining down on me

I had a chance

And the chance is that

Baby this is all I need

Give me your heart

Because I need it like I used to

You are a star shining down on me

I had a chance

And the chance is that

Baby this is all I need

Go ahead

My mouth won’t say

I love that you love me

I swear that’s the case

If you’re left with only tears

I’m stuck with these nightmares

These ghosts and these fears

I won’t let you down

I’m gonna run through the night

Till my soul’s taking flight

Live in the stars

I’m watching the skies open up

With my arms waving out

Oh I’ve missed you badly

Give me your heart

Because I need it like I used to

You are a star shining down on me

I had a chance

And the chance is that

Baby this is all I need

Give me your heart

Because I need it like I used to

You are a star shining down on me

I had a chance

And the chance is that

Baby this is all I need

The Ready Set Disappearing Act

(Kat)

(Yeah)

God I love how it looks so sweet

Do I get another chance to taste it?

I’ve been dreaming of broken teeth

Cold sweat, vision blurred and faded

There’s a ghost standing next to me

In the dark I saw my own reflection

It was nothing like it used to be

False start, losing my direction

Fearing the sun would never come to the shadow of who I was

Wishing on empty stars to put me back together

I’m in the place where you found me

I hid away trying to chase down gold

But I became my surroundings (yeah)

She said “You’re disappearing act is getting old!”

[x2]

Running out of my dissolution

Running out of my dissolution

And I know that I would get back up

But does it really matter what we’re saying?

Here at the bottom of a plastic cup

Where we forget all that we loved and we hated

I learned the sun will always rise

Heres to the ones with hazy eyes

Swinging from empty stars, falling down together

I’m in the place where you found me

I hid away trying to chase down gold

But I became my surroundings (yeah)

She said “You’re disappearing act is getting old!”

[x2]

Running out of my dissolution

Running out of my dissolution

Everybody wants a savior, but there’s no saints to see

If you want it just grow 10 feet tall and take all that you need

We are not hollow projections on a blurry T.V. screen

I’m not scared to fall, no not at all

The sky belongs to me

The sky belongs to me

(Kat)

I’m in the place where you found me

I hid away trying to chase down gold

But I became my surroundings (yeah)

She said “You’re disappearing act is getting old!”

[x2]

Running out of of my disillusion

Running out of of my disillusion

(Guess the disappearing act is getting old)

(Guess the disappearing act is getting old)

(Guess the disappearing act is getting old)

(Guess the disappearing act is getting old)

The Ready Set Spacific Oceans

Whoa oh oh oh oh my sunshine

Whoa oh oh oh and the little bird says you’re not alone

No, you’re not alone

Tonight you called me up just to ask me

“Oh, why’s the music up, so loud?”

And said, “You’re way too old for that.”

I laughed at you and said, “You’re only seventeen.” And, “Are you kidding me?”

You kept him cold at night standing all alone

And putting up your best fight

Left from the magazines

And bathrooms too small for your clothes

Your skin and bones

So if this sees eyes, which will keep you occupied

The logic of fashion

And name brand compassion

You’re looking all right but in the mean time

I’ll be playing the black keys

And singing the West Coast Blues tonight

‘Cuz in a dark light, everyone looks alike

Oh,

Moneymaker,

Get down.

This is a holdup

I’m taking my respect back

Oh,

Moneymaker,

Break down.

Triple digit ring, gold

Watch what plagues your filthy hands

And I’ve been thinking twice about the things I say

The choices I made

‘Cuz it comes right back

They conqueror it

And they lie

As always strive,

There will be no room for compromise,

Not even for you/tonight

I helped you find a home

If you want to write on now,

‘Cuz it’s not like you to let go let go

Baby let yourself shine

Where did that girl I run for go?

You grew up fast

I kept it slow

The logic of fashion

And name brand compassion

You’re looking all right but in the mean time

I’ll be playing the black keys

And singing the West Coast Blues tonight…tonight…tonight

‘Cuz in a dark light, everyone looks alike

Let’s go

Moneymaker,

Back down

I won’t be seen with you

I won’t kill the way you do

These walls are shaking

Right now

Be shot, we’ll be starting fights

So we can all end this all tonight

We’ll lets go

You showed her out

Lock the door

You sat and smiled

They wanted more

Be kind of cold if she calls her friends

Stuck a root to the bitter end

But you know

She’s smiling

You know

You’re crying

You know

She got so carried out

I’ve been trying to

Just to ask you

What went wrong?

So, if you’re feeling too

Keep the feeling true

So if you’re feeling too

Keep the feeling true

I’ve been trying to

Just to ask you

The Ready Set Atmosfears

Break down the walls

And let me see you the way you are when no ones watching you and taking notes

With that said, you’re a wreck and can’t do anything right

So am i, so won’t you try to stay by my side

So can you feel me in the sunrise

And I could tell that you were upset

I got your back through all the hard times

No more building walls or telling lies, not to you guys

[Chorus]

Southern time we went

Make the sky bright and let the stars shine

Oh oh oh

I think you said you’d let me in

And I can tell by the way that you’re shaking your hips, oh.

Street lights and signs blocking my 85

I don’t know the time of night

But every minute will bring a new light

Won’t you people (won’t you people)

Tonight we’re gonna sing loud

Tonight we’re gonna break this down

Alright here’s the setting sun

When you’re in love, how red is the setting, setting

How red’s the setting setting ..

Sun.

[Chorus]

Southern time we went

Make the sky bright and let the stars shine

Oh oh oh

I think you said you’d let me in

And I can tell by the way that you’re shaking your hips, oh

I know all too well how things like this weren’t

Either way I win, but what’s it mean to me

I’ve got a few sweet words for all of my friends:

Thank you guys

So its my style and the way that you do

With your eyes and the way that you move

You gotta hold me down tonight

Oh yeah, one more thing

I love you too

The Ready Set Approach-Approach

I will fall down and make my move

Make my move tonight, tonight

When logic falls down and hearts break out

The tantrums start tonight tonight

A river was born today

I watched it flow into the ocean blue

Imagine you would to

Despite the eyes that are set on you

They would hold you if they could

They would mold you if you would

Don’t allow it to be, don’t allow it to be

Choose your own words you’ll always be (wha ah ah ah ah)

I know its true

That who we are is what we do

Infections are passions

My dreams in compression

Well we’ve come such a long way

I keep the thought of where my head is stretched across this land

I keep the truth

And when my heart is right behind my hand

So baby just give me one wish

I’m wishing for balance and strength for this

I know it will be hard, I know it will be haaard,

All the places and colors we’ll see

Cities and celtics and highways and streets,

The balconies you’ll stare, and I will keep you there,

I will keep you there

I will keep you there

The Ready Set My Rushmore

Ooh [x2]

Ooh [x4]

(Hyde Park On Hudson)

Ooh [x4]

You’re My Rushmore

(It’s Groundhog Day)

I was the man who knew too little

Every part of love was a riddle

Oh, what a quick change when you said my name

Met you for coffee and cigarettes

Tell me

If you like Zissou, loose shoes

I think I like you

We can bust out every ghost we see

Gonna take you to my Moonrise Kingdom with me

Oh baby,

If I’m lost won’t you translate me?

(Translate me)

I’m saying, you’re my Rushmore, don’t you see

Oh [x7]

(Let’s go)

Ooh [x2]

Ooh [x4]

Ooh [x4]

You’re my Rushmore, don’t you see

Forget your broken flowers

I know that nothing lasts forever

Oh, how my mind changed when you said my name

Met you for coffee and cigarettes

Tell me

If you like Zissou, loose shoes

I think I like you

We can bust out every ghost we see

Gonna take you to my Moonrise Kingdom with me

Oh baby,

If I’m lost won’t you translate me?

(Translate me)

I’m saying, you’re my Rushmore, don’t you see

Oh [x7]

Ooh [x2]

Ooh [x4]

Ooh [x4]

You’re my Rushmore, don’t you see

I met you at Hyde Park on Hudson

It was Groundhog Day

Oh, Larger than Life

How our Passion’s Play

(see ya)

Hyde Park on Hudson

(Hyde Park on Hudson)

It was Groundhog Day

(It’s Groundhog Day)

Oh, Larger than Life

How our Passion’s Play

We can bust out every ghost we see

Gonna take you to my Moonrise Kingdom with me

Oh baby, if I’m lost won’t you translate me

Yeah

You’re my Rushmore, don’t you see

We can bust out every ghost we see

(Hyde Park on Hudson)

Gonna take you to my Moonrise Kingdom with me

(It’s Groundhog Day)

The Ready Set Paratrooper

Oh, oh, oh, oh

Oh baby, tell me “Don’t stay home,” no

Oh, oh, oh

Such great indulgence, it made me laugh

And I will say, “I don’t think” and I’ll pass around the room

But I just don’t see you

You are the inside, outside epitome of what it looks like

So be a wreck while on the bathroom floor

It’s fun, it’s quick, just baby take it, take it slow

And don’t you think about the show

That chapter’s gone, you smoked it out and out and to the door

Whoa, whoa

So when you come back down

You know that I’ll be waiting for you

I only hope that you won’t forget my name, (my name, name, name)

Breakdown to third street, and how we’d scream

They kept us solid, it kept us crazy, kept us clean

But now we cling to different scenes

See, one stays awake while the other’s a dream

With the level of incompetence

And the look in your eyes, the look in your eyes is plain

He’s awake and he’s breathing

I’m awake and my chest is heaving, heaving, now I’m leaving, leaving

If you can’t speak I want your tongue tied (tongue tied, tongue tied)

Let me go and break

Everyone here is awake

Everyone here is in touch

Everyone here is a fake like

You, you, you, you, you, you

(oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)

Whoa, whoa

So when you come back down

You know that I’ll be waiting for you

I only hope that you won’t forget my name, (my name, name, name, name)

The reason I won’t watch you change your name

Hearts of spades

The Ready Set Love Like Woe

Woe oh, oh, oh!

Woe oh, oh, oh!

I kinda feel like it don’t make, like it don’t make

Feel like it don’t make sense

I’m thinking baby you and I are undeniable

But I’m finding out love’s unreliable

I’m giving all I got to make you stay

Or am I just a roadblock in your way?

‘Cause your a pretty little windstorm

Out on the boulevard

Something like a sunset

Oh, you’re a shooting star

And I might drive myself insane

If those lips aren’t speaking my name

‘Cause I got some intuition

Or maybe I’m superstitious

But I think you’re a pretty sweet pill that I’m swallowing down

To counter this addiction

You got me on a mission

Tell me darling can I get a break, some how

Could I say no?

She’s got a love like woe (Woe oh oh oh)

Girl’s got a love like woe (Woe oh oh oh)

(Ba da da)

I kinda feel like it don’t make sense

Because you’re bringing me in

And now you’re kicking me out again

Love so strong (Woe oh oh oh)

Then you moved on (Woe oh oh oh)

Now I’m hung up in suspense

Because you’re bringing me in

And then you’re kicking me out again

It’s like a hurricane

Speed train

She’s a moving car

Go catch her in the fast lane

Oh I gotta know

Can I keep up with her pace?

Kickin’ into gear when I see that face

You can take up all my time ’cause you’re the only one

That can make a storm cloud break

Pulling out the sun

And I can’t get caught in the rain

Can I get your lips to speak my name?

‘Cause I got some intuition

Or maybe I’m superstitious

But I think you’re a pretty sweet pill that I’m swallowing down

To counter this addiction

You got me on a mission

Tell me darling can I get a break, some how

Could I say no?

She’s got a love like woe (Woe oh oh oh)

Girl’s got a love like woe (Woe oh oh oh

(Ba da da)

I kinda feel like it don’t make sense

‘Cause you’re bringing me in

And now you’re kicking me out again

Love so strong (Woe oh oh oh)

Then you moved on (Woe oh oh oh)

Now I’m hung up in suspense

Because you’re bringing me in

And then you’re kicking me out again

Because we only have one life

The timing and the moment

All seem so right

So would you say you’re mine? (We’ll be just fine)

Would you say you’re mine? (We’ll be just fine)

She’s got a love like woe (Woe oh oh oh)

Girl’s got a love like woe (Woe oh oh oh)

(Ba da da)

I gotta feel like it don’t make sense

‘Cause you’re bringing me in

And now you’re kicking me out again

Love so strong (Woe oh oh oh)

Then you moved on (Woe oh oh oh)

Now I’m hung up in suspense

Because you’re bringing me in

And then you’re kicking me out again

She’s got a love like woe (Woe oh oh oh)

Girl’s got a love like woe (Woe oh oh oh)

(Ba da da)

I kinda feel like it don’t make sense

‘Cause you’re bringing me in

And now you’re kicking me out again

Love so strong (Woe oh oh oh)

Then you moved on (Woe oh oh oh)

Now I’m hung up in suspense

Because you’re bringing me in

And then you’re kicking me out again
