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

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

Berlin 02:30
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

Swan Dive 02:37
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
