Future of the Party Rutherford, New Jersey

It doesn't really matter who we are, where we've been, or what we've left behind. This is about reconciling your past, and looking towards your future. We love to write, we love to dance, and we love to sing.

Time is precious. You could spend it anywhere, yet here you are. Thank you for listening.

Track Name: Half-Truth
Every light at night is shining for you;
a thousand points of light across the sky.
But I can't bring myself to tune them out or turn away tonight.

Remember our night, our time's over.

So I spend my days talking out loud but barely make a sound.
My lips are moving but nothing comes out.
Am I the only one you left this way?
Filled with all these things I'd never get to say.

Remember our night, our time's over.

Telling whole lies, speaking in half-truths.
Saying I don't ever think about you.
But when I'm all alone, you're all I seem to know.
And somewhere you are thinking of me too.
I wonder where you are.
Track Name: Pieces
Defying sleep with daydreams.
Slowly tear apart the seams of all the things we worked so hard to build and leave back home.
But we're just outside it now.
I hope we get there.

I've been dropping pieces of myself for you to find along the way, in case we stay.

Don't know how far we've gone, you can only watch raindrops race on windows for so long.
If I'm alive I'm asleep in the back of the van,
Another night like this and you won't know who I am.
And the road carries on for miles and miles.

I've been dropping pieces of myself for you to find along the way, in case we stay.
Days begin to blend together, feels like I've been out here forever.
Time carries on, reminding me how long we've been away.

And I'll drive a million miles tonight, until I find something new.
Where do I go when it's over? Where do I go when no place feels like home?

Because I've been dropping pieces of myself for you to find along the way, in case we stay.
Days begin to blend together, feels like I've been out here forever.
Time carries on, reminding me how long we've been away.
Track Name: We'll Be Alright
When you came out, I could feel my heart beating in patterns.
"A couple drinks" was just the start of something that mattered.
I hope I never have to close my eyes.
But now we're running out of borrowed time, so let's drink a bit faster.

We get lost but our hands and our hearts keep spinning around tonight.
I don't care where we go, all I know is we'll be alright.

I know what we've been told, but it's hard to keep control so we just let go.
I feel the beat inside.
We won't forget about that night and no one has to know.

And so we dance until the night puts us to sleep.
Still intertwined it feels so right, I wish I could keep this.

We get lost but our hands and our hearts keep spinning around tonight.
I don't care where we go, all I know is we'll be alright.

I know what we've been told, but it's hard to keep control so we just let go.
I feel the beat inside.
We won't forget about that night and no one has to know.

The only thing between us is the air that we still breathe.
And we still sing out lout, but no one's listening.
We bottle our hearts when our hands start swimming in a sea of tangled sheets.
We're singing out loud.
Track Name: Before Tonight
This place feels familiar, like maybe we've been here before tonight.
I know that I've been here, maybe in a different year or better time.
I've heard that silence is golden, but yours is so much heavier than both my arms can hold.

All these sick feelings have dripped from the ceiling and in our ears while we were fast asleep.
They crept on us slowly, before we could know we were stripped of all the things we'd like to keep.
And it's so sad pretending my life's where I planned it would be.

I've gotta shed this dead skin I've been living in, climbing out from all the ashes I'm ready to begin.
I've got to take a chance and make it what I need it to be.
Can't sit around in this town, that would be the end.

My mind's been breaking down, my heart's been breaking out.
So I'm jumping in but cannot swim against these growing waves.
Can I escape?

The sun has gone down, there's a chill in the air.
If I don't get out now, I'll never make it there.
So I'm jumping in but cannot swim against these growing waves.
Can I escape?
