Track Name: When I'm Gone (Acoustic)
I know I should be hurt and sad and angry
And believe me, I am
I should fill this song with minor chords and whine about
How I did the best I can
It's nice to know what friends are for
But this ain't it
It's like you went and turned the knife
Before you even stabbed me in the back

So go ahead on you merry way
I wish you the best, I hope you make it someday
'Cause I am moving on
Try not to miss me when I'm gone

Thanks for all the compliments, oh I can tell
You meant every word
And thanks for all the funny jokes, but you should know
I never laughed that hard
And I know you never thought I could yell
And that's just great
But if you could hear me now
I'd hope it make your ears shake

So go ahead on you merry way
I wish you the best, I hope you make it someday
'Cause I won't die in your blood
It was never where I belonged
And if you wanted to see me break
Well, I've got some scars
But I survived your earthquake
And I am moving on
Try not to miss me when I'm
Miss me when I'm gone

If you have something else to say
You better say it
You better say it
You better say it
The song's almost over and I can't take it
You better say it

So go ahead on you merry way
I hope that you get your ass kicked someday
'Cause I won't die in your blood
It was never where I belonged
And if you wanted to see me break
Well, I've got some scars
But I survived your earthquake
And I am moving on
Try not to miss me when I'm
Miss me when I'm gone
Track Name: Remission (Acoustic)
There was a time I couldn’t breathe
Without you sinking into me
All in my lungs, I’m coughing blood
Again

You always knew the string to cut
To send me in another rut
All in my head, and pulling threads
Again

But I’ve become too raw
To play dead
While you open me back up

Maybe I’m getting cured
And I’m not waiting for
You to love me more than I can
Maybe I’m getting fine
And I’m not wasting time
Ruminating my remission

I found your cord, I cut you off
You’re not the only friend that I’ve got
Not in my lungs, or coughing blood
Again

‘Cause I’ve become too raw
To play dead
While you open me back up

Maybe I’m getting cured
And I’m not waiting for
You to love me more than I can
Maybe I’m getting fine
And I’m not wasting time
Ruminating my remission

Maybe I’m getting cured
And I’m not waiting for
You to love me more than I can
Maybe I’m getting cured
And I’m not waiting for
You to love me more than I can
Maybe I’m getting fine
And I’m not wasting time
Ruminating my remission

My remission
My remission
Maybe I’m getting cured
Maybe I’m getting cured
Maybe I’m getting cured
Track Name: Of Montreal (Acoustic)
You’re states and streets away
And I miss you all the time
So I’ll count down till the distance has been closed
And I’m back under your lights
Keep me on your mind

‘Cause all I need
Is you in my daydreams
But all I want
Is you and Montreal

You looked at me like crystal
Now I shine when I’m alone
Doused my skin in a fire that still burns
And lights the way back home

All I need
Is you in my daydreams
But all I want
Is you and Montreal

I’ll walk outside
See you in streetlights
Just say you’ll wait
Say you’ll wait

You’re states and streets away
But I'd go there any time

All I need
Is you in my daydreams
But all I want
Is you and Montreal
All I need
Is you in my daydreams
But all I want
Is you and Montreal
Track Name: Human (Acoustic)
Take a stab at what
Has got you stuck this time
You set your brain on fire
Wonder why you're so much older
But don't know how to be alive

Tell me where it hurts
Is the belly of your gut about to burst
'Cause I can hear them rumbling
All those bombs packed in your stomach
Maybe you, you should set them off

It feels good to feel so raw
Like you've been cut by shooting stars
Now you're human
Now you're human

What's it like to be alone
Nobody here to calm you down
Your head just keeps on talking
While you sit there feeling silenced
Just scream, scream it all out

It feels good to feel so raw
Like you've been cut by shooting stars
Now you're human
Now you're human

It feels good to feel so raw
Like you've been cut by shooting stars
Now you're human
Now you're human
Now you're human
Now you're human
Now you're human
Now you're human
Now you're human
Now you're human
