Transit All Your Heart

I talk a big game

But I can’t say it to your face

So I’ll just say it,

I’ll just say it in a song.

And all those big dreams and big words

Didn’t get me far.

Did they get you far?

(Even when you want it)

With all of your heart

A wish is only that

(Even when you want it)

With all of your heart

You can’t wish them back

There are two sides to every story

And smaller bits that break from the start.

You made me into a monster,

So I made you into art

And I gave it to the world

To rip and tear apart.

But every critic is every cynic

Who lacks the drive and heart

To do what I do,

To do what I have done

So they rip and tear it apart.

All those big dreams and big words

Didn’t get me far.

Did they get you far?

(Even when you want it)

With all of your heart

A wish is only that

(Even when you want them)

With all of your heart

You can’t wish them back.

There are two sides to every story

And smaller bits that break from the start.

With all of your heart

All those big dreams and big words

With all of your heart

They didn’t get me far.

Did they get you far?

Every critic is every cynic

Who lacks the drive and heart

To do what I do,

To do what I have done

(Even when you want it)

With all of your heart

A wish is only that

(Even when you want them)

With all of your heart

You can’t wish them back.

There are two sides to every story

And smaller bits that break from the start.

Transit Radio Flyer

These fifteen-hour drives and all of these sleepless nights are taking hold of me.

So turn up the radio and keep singing on and on

We like it fast out on the road out on the road.

What will the highway signs bring to us tomorrow?

The passing headlights will burn through our eyes

But we keep driving through the night.

Until we see, signal tower lights in the trees

They’re shining through.

Is it just me or does everyone seem better off away from home?

So turn up the radio and keep singing on and on

Because in one more year it will all begin to fade away

Just like that old photograph of us as kids running in the summer heat.

One more year and we wake up from this dream.

Lets break away from the routine days that tear us down at the seams.

One more year, we will wake up from this dream.

Is it just me or does everyone seem better off away from home?

Transit P.S.

In my defense the sky isn’t getting any clearer

and day-by-day I’m finding place in myself

that were best left under lock and key.

And sometimes it seems

there’s happiness for everyone but me.

so how do you take this when someone says to your face

“why can’t you believe that anyone cares about you”

I care about you

If I could stack my doubts or spend the time to sort them out

I would be climbing till I couldn’t breathe

and the pressure always gets to me.

The more I look around I see that even though it seems,

There’s happiness for everyone but me.

Everyone but me.

We’re all just kids, scared and flawed

clinging to the legs of all the good inside we’ve lost

or thought there was but never was at all

so carry on, because someday we’ll leave this place behind.

And you will let me go, just like a balloon.

I hope you watch me float away into the atmosphere

I’ll be waiving till I’m out of site

I know I couldn’t make things right

But I know that you’re drifting towards a better life, with better times.

Forget me what a smile but move on with your life.

Transit Second To Right

We only want what we can’t have

We’re always hung up in the past

So many things we can’t take back

I guess I thought we’d always last

Brighter days fade away to black

That sinking feeling never stops

I can’t be your shelter

Can’t be your home

Can’t be the one to call your own

That silver star second to right

won’t shine again a second time

I can’t be your shelter

Can’t be your home

Can’t be the one to call your own

That silver star second to right

won’t shine again a second time

Head in the clouds stepping over cracks

Head for the hills, just know your way back

This content it will never last

That sinking feeling never stops

Oh no no no

I can’t be your shelter

Can’t be your home

Can’t be the one to call your own

That silver star second to right

won’t shine again a second time

I can’t be your shelter

Can’t be your home

Can’t be the one to call your own

That silver star second to right

won’t shine again a second time

Oh no no no

Vice is only temporary not an escape

Your skies are dark cherry

The sun always sinks

As you dance into the night

The moment passes by

Falling in and out of contrast

I will wipe away the past

Oh no no no

I can’t be your shelter

Can’t be your home

Can’t be the one to call your own

That silver star second to right

won’t shine again a second time

But I can see you looking in

Always trying to catch a glimpse

I can see you looking in

Like a breath on a mirrored glass

I will wipe away the past

That sinking feeling never stops

Transit Shift On

Following the same roads, from a place I once called home

And I’m Staring into passing cars and wondering if any of this means a thing to me.

Well this is all I have and this is where I need to be right now.

I just don’t know anymore.

Focus the light has blinded you. (We’ll see this through.)

Contrast with the image, as it alters your view.

Focus the light has blinded you. (We’ll see this through.)

Don’t conform to an image, don’t let this alter you.

I know that your clever lies are tied to the truth.

Your held down by change you need to find the strength and break yourself loose.

I know that your clever lies are tied to the truth.

Your held down by change you need to find the strength and cut yourself loose

Focus the light has blinded you. (We’ll see this through.)

Contrast with the image, as it alters your view.

Focus the light has blinded you. (We’ll see this through.)

Give up shift on full force to something new.

Let it out. Scream until your voice can’t make a sound.

Let it out, its time to break these ties that keep us down.

And I’m hoping that tomorrow shines with the warmest rays down from the sun.

It’s time for us to leave this place and give up out past lives while we’re still young.

Scream until your voice breaks.

I know when I get home everything in this town will change.

But I’m sure when I get home the emptiness remains.

So I’ll scream until your voice breaks.

When I get home everything will change

Transit Indoor Voices

I’m getting tired of being told that ‘You’re only one person to the world’ when, to one person, you could be the world.

Transit Riding The Bullet

Hands holding tight

Only, letting go we let them raise so high

Above our heads

Smiling and screaming to our hearts content.

We never realize how quickly life can change

Or how much these days have meant.

It’s like roller coaster that you never want to end.

So look me in the eyes and know

It’s all just a ride.

That as the world goes around

We’re living through the pain, the tears, and hardest years

For every sharp turn and for every autumn night

Spent inside tree houses and window sills

We’ve never climbed so high, we’re not afraid to fall.

Looking down and waving from the clouds above

(I’ve never climbed so high, and I’m not afraid to fall)

From way up here I’m not afraid to fall.

These memories have seen me through the pain,

through the tears and the hardest years.

And I look to you now,

the only one who has ever made me feel so fortunate.

So now I’m waking up each day

And it seems to be too cold to be counting

all of my blessings and feeling so very old.

But whether you’re smiling or screaming

I’ll be by your side.

I swear I’ll be by your side.

And if even it becomes

hearing you just laughing on the phone

I will never forget those days or ever feel alone.

Never feel alone

Cause I’ve got dreams to remember

For a lifetime of regret

I’ve got dreams to remember

And so many years to forget.

Transit Nothing Lasts Forever

I drove through the front yard

I parked on the bridge

I saw the coastline like I never did

You know nothing lasts forever

No, nothing lasts forever

I thought that I blocked out December

Until I heard the news

I swore that I left you inside of the glovebox

Next to the other things I never used

I drove through the front yard

I parked on the bridge

I saw the coastline like I never did

I thought nothing lasts forever

No, nothing lasts forever

[x2]

I thought we’d be in this together

Until I heard the news

And now I’m alone with my thoughts and the ocean

I’ll stay here forever waiting for you

I drove through the front yard

I parked on the bridge

I saw the coastline like I never did

I thought nothing lasts forever

No, nothing lasts forever

[x2]

Go!

I drove through the front yard

I parked on the bridge

I saw the coastline like I never did

I thought nothing lasts forever

No, nothing lasts forever

[x2]

Transit Rest To Get Better

I haven’t slept in forever, only rest to get better

I’m up every three hours or so

With the same awful thoughts that keep me in my place

Too tired to act out or make sense of my days

Maybe, I’ll find peace

Maybe, between the cold sheets

Maybe, that’s all I need

Maybe, I’ll get some sleep

I haven’t slept in forever, only rest to get better

And dream up all the ways to escape

And when I’m wide-awake the world seems to move slowly

Like long goodbyes from the lonely sound of alarms

You think you get honest you only get meaner

You think it gets better you only break cleaner

Admit you’re a liar, admit that you need her

You think it gets better you only break cleaner

Maybe, I’ll find peace

Maybe, between the cold sheets

Maybe, that’s all I need

Maybe, I’ll get some sleep

I haven’t slept in forever, only rest to get better

And dream up all the ways to escape

And when I’m wide-awake the world seems to move slowly

Like long goodbyes from the lonely sound of alarms

I tried everything

Long goodbyes from the lonely sound of alarms

You don’t remember me

And we’ll never escape from the lonely sound of alarms

I will never escape

Maybe, it was the summer of 03

Maybe, we were 17 and 16

Maybe, you don’t remember me

Wide-awake the world moves slowly

I will never escape from the lonely

I haven’t slept in forever, only rest to get better

And dream up all the ways to escape

And when I’m wide-awake the world seems to move slowly

Like long goodbyes from the lonely sound of alarms

I tried everything

Long goodbyes from the lonely sound of alarms

You don’t remember me

Long goodbyes from the lonely sound of alarms

And we’ll never escape from the lonely sound of alarms

Transit Giving In

You’re giving in.

Just let the poison take control

It’s destroying everything.

Everything within.

(Time takes it toll on us,

Until we have nothing left to give,

I have nothing left to give.)

It poured into your soul

And drowned the heart within.

We’re going down on this sinking ship.

Open your eyes this will never happen again.

With words that sink like stones we build the walls to our hearts.

It’s just a poor excuse that all, a prison filled with innocents.
