Transit Rule Of Nines

Can you see that all of the houses are burning

While our backs were turned away.

Inside the fire we’ll be

Consumed by it all.

Nothing but ash remains.

Eyes scorched, reflecting flames,

We will not go down without a fight.

Eyes scorched, reflecting flames,

We will not go down without a fight.

But if we make it through the night

Would you forget this moment even took place?

And if we lose it all tonight

I Promise you I wont forget your face.

I won’t forget you, no

I wont forget your face.

We will not go down without a fight

Eyes scorched, reflecting flames,

No we will not burn down, no not this time.

Smoke filled sun rays are all I can see.

Sirens sing my name in background like a choir.

They’re singing.

We’ll have to lose it all to know what’s really ours

So many days, we take for granted

So many nights inside ours rooms

Were just wasting time.

We’ll have to lose it all to know what’s really ours

Transit Cutting Corners

Just about ten drinks in

You stumble across the floor (to apologize again)

So you beg, steal, and borrow

And you hope that tomorrow you can take it back

So cross your fingers and dot the i’s

Apologize

Fill in the blanks for all your lies

Apologize

So make every song your anthem

And every night your last

Don’t let them pick your words

Make sure you choose them,

Just like you pick your friends

Cause you can’t take them back

You can’t always take it back

You can’t always take them back

You just can’t

So cross your fingers and dot the i’s

Apologize

Fill in the blanks for all your lies

Apologize

I’m dumb enough to keep you

And you’re drunk enough to cry

Apologize, Apologize

Transit Hazy

It all seems hazy like the summer sun

And I’m just a memory

That floated in on a seacoast wind

Through the fog and the factories

Take me as I am

You come and go just as you please

I lost enough out here alone

I’m hoping someday you forgive me

It’s all hazy like the summer sun

And I’m just a memory

Who followed state lines

Down through places

Dreamers forget to leave

You spend enough time on the road

Won’t you come back home to me

I lost enough out here alone

I’m hoping someday you forgive me

Someday you’ll forgive me

It’s all hazy like the summer sun

And I’m just a memory

Who followed state lines down through places

Dreamers forget to leave

Take, take, take me as I am

And you go, go as you please

I lost enough out here alone

Hoping that someday you forgive me

Forgive me

Because you won’t find lovers

In the arms of strangers

You won’t find peace in places like this

Love is not a tourist

You can’t go on like this

It’s all hazy like the summer sun

And I’m just a memory

Who followed state lines down through places

Dreamers forget to leave

Take, take, take me as I am

And you go, go as you please

I lost enough out here alone

Hoping that someday you forgive me

Transit Nameless

Now isn’t it sad when we find our place.

(Condemned and rebuilt so easily replaced now.)

We stick to the floors just like shadows.

(A nameless kid, an empty place.)

I remember when our hearts skipped to this sound.

Now we long for that beating pulse.

Would you believe me if I told you that I was afraid of the end.

(This bed of yours is never made you’re constantly dreaming)

The movie plays and it rewinds back memories and fading pictures from a crash.

When those bright lights flashed against our faces.

Then we sat alone in the dark.

Is anyone there.

Can anyone hear me.

Still we long for that beating pulse.

Would you believe me if I told you that I was afraid of the end.

As I sink into this seat the open windows and the radio sings to me.

This comfort makes me feel at home, just some nameless kids and a few songs.

We’re on our way through rows of endless broken white lines

Until we run this engine down.

Without a trace we will disappear in static and leave behind this broken town

Transit Dear: Anyone

You’ve never felt quite right in your own skin

and there’s no place for a crook like me.

You’ve never been in love.

I don’t know what it is and I don’t believe

that anyone can change me

because you don’t know anything about me.

My backs against the door to keep you on the outside

and nobody knows what I’m trying to hide.

You’ve never felt quite right behind those green eyes

and you can’t hide from a crook like me.

You left me outside just knocking on your door, knocking on your door.

I’m not sure if I can do this anymore.

You left me outside, knocking for so long

that my knuckles bleed and nobody knows

what I’m trying to hide not even me

Transit Thanks For Nothing

You’re always looking out for flaws

Until they’re all that you can see

When as you age you learn that love

Is moving at somebody else’s speed

You said:

“Love love love is a song

Follow my melody to sing along”

Tell me how how do I sing along?

You said:

“Love love love is a game

One that I I can’t learn to play”

Tell me why why do I play along?

“You’re gonna lose more than you win

You will hate them just as much as you love them

Look at every little thing

You can’t fix it if it’s already broken”

I will lose more than I win

I will hate you just as much as I love you

Look at every little thing

I can’t fix you, you’re already broken

“Love love love is a song

Follow my melody to sing along”

Tell me how how do I sing along?

You said:

“Love love love is a game

One that I I can’t learn to play”

Tell me why why do I play along?

Cause back when your car had a drop to drink

We begged the hills to roll us home

And moved through towns on pocket change

We bled the tank until it was gone

I sat and watched as the clouds rolled back

Sinking through the linden trees

Braking curses with a laugh

We had the world hanging on

The edge of our keys

“Love love love is a song

Follow my melody to sing along”

Tell me how how do I sing along?

You said:

“Love love love is a game

One that I I can’t learn to play”

Tell me why why do I play along?

Silence says it all

Words are not enough

You left a note right where you left me

“Thanks for nothing”

“Thanks for nothing”

Transit Atlas

City walls are caving in.

Once buildings stood so tall.

Just metal scraps beneath our feet.

This feeling’s unsettling.

We’re caught in a freefall just waiting for an end.

The weight of the world it presses down on me.

I feel my bones begin to crack and break.

The weight of your words they’re pressing down on me.

I feel my insides opening.

This year won’t be the last one.

(Return this desert to a sea.)

This year wont be the last one.

(Tonight let’s disengage)

This year won’t be the last one.

(Return this desert to a sea.)

This year won’t be the last one.

(Let’s disengage)

We’re kept sheltered from our own devices, sheltered from the cold.

Doors and windows boarded tight resistant to the world.

Sheltered from our own devices, from the cold.

Soon we’ll return this desert to a sea

Transit Pins And Needles

Walking away from another fight

I still see those eyes every time I close mine

I Try to smile, my teeth tend to hide

When you tend to leave, our love behind

Hold on and hold steady

Say the word and come collect me you know

I’m ready, say the word and come and get me come on

Hold steady, you know

I’m ready, you know

I’m ready, I’m ready

She said

I want the stars, bursting inferno

Cover my heart, twilight to shadow

Dancing on, love, pins, and needles

I’m dancing on, love, pins, and needles

I lie awake in the dead of night

I still taste your lips every time I touch mine

All I find, always on my mind

How could you leave our love behind

Hold on and hold steady

Say the word and come collect me you know

I’m ready, say the word and come and get me come on

Hold steady, you know

I’m ready, you know

I’m ready, I’m ready

She said

I want the stars, bursting inferno

Cover my heart, twilight to shadow

Dancing on, love, pins, and needles

I’m dancing on, love, pins, and needles

[x2]

Cover my heart, cover my heart, we’re dancing on

Cover my heart, covered in pins and needles

[x4]

I want the stars, bursting inferno

Cover my heart, twilight to shadow

Dancing on, love, pins, and needles

Dancing on, love, pins, and needles

[x3]

Dancing on, love, pins, and needles

[x4]

Transit Waterways In New England

Stories carved in to the streets, into the pavement where we

Scraped our knees they’ve worn down.

Worn down like a dim lit flame we used to burn so brightly.

We’re covered under winter’s snow silenced with the landscape.

We sit and wait to thaw.

I still remember those day’ jets flew right over our heads.

The air above consumed with scorching lights.

Our eyes shot into the endless night sky.

We listened to the ocean’s waves crash along the shore.

So tonight I’m sleeping out on the ground. Blanket the dirt over me.

We’re all waiting out this raging storm, so leave me.

We listened to the ocean waves crash along the shore.

They crashed along the shore

Transit 1978

She said

“Take a step back but please keep me in frame.”

So I spent the next five years

standing in your way

I walked in with you alone

I’m walking out with you alone.

And I know just how you’d get

back at me

If I said that these songs

were about you.

You’d cry and say:

“I never meant to make you feel this way”

You’d cry and say:

“well it’s been done, and it’s too late”

Step back, but please keep me in frame

(keep me in frame, keep me in frame)

and I spent the next five years standing in your way.

I walked in with you alone

I’m walking out with you alone.

And it’s too late.

and all that I have left

to give you now

to is a poor gift and that’s myself.

She said

“take a step back,

but please keep me in frame”

(keep me in frame, keep me in frame)

and I spent so many years

just standing in your way

you walk in with me alone

and you walk out with me alone.

If I told you this song was about you.

(you’d cry and say, cry and say)

“I never meant to make you feel this way.”

If I told you that this song was about you.

(you’d cry and say, cry and say)

its been done and it’s too late.
