Track Name: Fighting Shape
Fighting Shape

He's making a lap around the block he knows so well
He's taking a chance that he might stand where he once fell
He's getting in fighting shape, again

Sometimes I feel like I'm right back there in the dark
Then I remember it's my choice to leave a mark
I'm getting in fighting shape, again

It's muscle memory
It lives in you and me

Fighting shape
We're getting in fighting shape, again

Don't buy the narrative that you are not okay
Hold onto what you know and keep that PMA
Track Name: Tragedy Chaser
Tragedy Chaser

We never could be
Synchronized swims
You splash too hard
I never go wide
But you will not stop
'Til something's scarred

Drunk on crazy
Reasons hazy
You get left for dead
I like waiting
Calm debating
Problems in my head

Tragedy chaser
Dramas amaze her
She'll search the world for losing odds
She says, "You're better buried
Than ordinary"
Lift off and crash with clumsy gods
Clumsy gods

Slow to the last train
Walking in flames beneath the wires
Show you a good stain
You will remain on
Blown out tires

Others run from enemy guns
From piles of burning cars
You run toward them
Kind of hoard them
I like my stars the way they are

Tragedy chaser
Dramas amaze her
She'll search the world for losing odds
She says, "You're better buried
Than ordinary"
Lift off and crash with clumsy gods
Clumsy gods

But you scare me when you dare me to release the bombs
You like heroes dead like Nero, I like mine dead calm

Tragedy chaser
Dramas amaze her
She'll search the world for losing odds
She says, "You're better buried
Than ordinary"
Lift off and crash with clumsy gods
Clumsy gods
Track Name: Berlin
Berlin

I gained my freedom
And moved around until I found somewhere that I
Wouldn't be defined
By who I tried to be before
Sometimes we fall

Just like that wall in Berlin
It stood to keep people in
You stated how you feel, and you swear you're right
But all the brutal beliefs, they don't line up with mine

One case of treason
And your life is colored for the rest of your dark days
I wouldn't be defined
By all the shame our people breed
Sometimes we rise

Just like that wall in Berlin
It stood to keep people in
You state how you feel, and you swear you're right
But all the brutal beliefs, they don't line up with mine

My leaving was more political than material
My leaning was more political than material
My reasons were more political than material
Meine gedanken waren alle meine

Like the wall in Berlin
It stood to shut out and keep people in
I know how you feel, I know you think you're right
But all your hateful beliefs, they don't add up to life
They don't add up to mine
Like the wall in Berlin
It don't add up to life
Track Name: Swan Dive
Swan Dive

I wish I believed every single word you said
I wish John Lennon weren't dead
He made a cool soldier

Angel Dust on Terminal Tower
Giving me super-human powers

So you wanna swan dive
No one's pushing you
Goodbye, goodbye
I'm going downtown

I hear the whistles and the sirens
From coming way downtown
Up from the top of the Terminal Tower
It's a quick way down, quick way down

Angel Dust on Terminal Tower
Giving me super-human powers

So you wanna swan dive
No one's pushing you
Goodbye, goodbye
I'm going downtown

Angel Dust on Terminal Tower
Giving me super-human power
