Track Name: Low Voltage Lightning
I almost forgot that you died today
It almost seemed plausible to go out and I'd see your face
I almost believed pleading hearts could keep time at bay
Sometimes when I sleep at night I wish I could join your forever state

We can only live until we die

You lived your life until the very end
Constantly working so hard to make your nows better than your thens
Always quick with a smile or a hug for a saddened friend
Eighteen wheels doesn't feel like a fitting end

We can only live until we die
Track Name: Snapshots
Here we sit taking pictures
Will they last us longer than clever lines
Still we read them like scriptures
Looking for strength from a stronger time
I believed in their worth
Of a thousand words
So I'll pay them lip service
And maybe move on to dimes

These pictures are accounts we can't be stopped right now
We show no signs of breaking down some how
These pictures will amount to memories we count
Of times we found out how

I remember what was said
Like how your love was crime
But so far in the future all I want to remember is
The way you laughed and smiled
When Oscar Grant was shot down
Like a dog in the BART
and Oakland replied with a riot
That's a thousand words we could all write down
To remember that we can breathe fire

These pictures are accounts, we can't be stopped right now
We show no signs of breaking down somehow
These pictures will amount to memories we count
Of times we found out how to live again
