Track Name: Small Towns
Cassie's staring down the convenience store,
Pair of heavy boots, picking things off the floor,
And the underage kids are standing in the door,
Holding brown paper bags of things they shouldn't have asked for.

Because this place has always been this way,
A broken motion picture with nothing to say,
Constantly try to beautify for display,
Because small towns never change,
Because small towns never change.

Robbie says hello, you ignore,
Too many whispers in the mill, he's alone,
And the whispers turn to truth in a town so small,
Talks to himself because he didn't do wrong at all.

Man sits outside the grocery all day,
Feeding the habit, he's got his charming ways,
Thing is, this could be any number of days,
Because small towns never change,
Because small towns never change.
Track Name: Day In, Day Out
Norman's at the bar again,
Through the doors at 10am,
Already smelling of whiskey.
One last cider for the road,
He's got to leave at dot on 12,
Because he's spending,
The day down at Kelly's.

And that's how life goes on,
Day in and day out,
And that's how life goes on,
Day in and day out.

Nicky now,
He's next in,
Slams his money down,
He wants gin,
He's nameless to all but the barmaid.
Not a single card in sight,
Not even his mum will write,
For him it's one lonely birthday.

And that's how life goes on,
Day in and day out,
And that's how life goes on,
Day in and day out.

Same names and faces every day,
All of them they live this way
I wonder, how did they get here?

And that's how life goes on,
Day in and day out,
And that's how life goes on,
Day in and day out.
Track Name: Beyond This City
Brake lights looking tired,
Sparks jump ship from their wires.
Visions don't get you far,
When no one knows who you are.

Beyond this city there is more.

Wearing grown up shoes,
Years pass still they don't fit you.
Too many friends turned foe,
And real ones gone before you know.

Beyond this city there is more.

Once would flock like birds,
Now barely exchange words.
Trips down memory lane,
You still don't know my last name.

Beyond this city there is more.

Happy to leave it all behind,
Better places I will find,
Sleep in the corners of my mind,
Beyond this city there is more.
