Track Name: Captain, My Captain
We've found this is the only thing
Worth Believing
These notes kept in our hearts
Speaking with six strings and a pen

So gather round the microphones
And sing the words out from your bones
This is something
We hold true

We've found this is the only thing
Worth Believing
These notes kept in our hearts
Speaking with six strings and a pen

So gather round the microphones
And sing the words out from your bones
This is something
We hold true

(chorus)
And when there's no one left to sing to
We'll scream our songs to the sky
The melody will go on and on

Somewhere deep inside
Our hearts and our minds
A song is sung
All the time

This is our effort
To keep that song alive
It helps me find a place of my own
Yes, we are home
Track Name: Oh, Rats!
Well I just turned twenty the other day
And of course I don't remember the day that I was born
But I remember being little
And how everyone was big
And how I wanted to be a music teacher one day

(chorus)
And the record spinning on your stereo
Felt like the only thing we'd ever know
Now I don't even know where my vinyl is
And I feel like there's nothing left to sing
A piece of plastic spinning round and round
Makes the most wonderful sound!

Remember when we used to play those shows
And everyone we knew would go
The music was horrible, but the feeling was so good
I only knew four chords
And I wrote words just like these
And it went G D A C
Track Name: The Novelist and the Poetaster
If the ocean swells
We'll know we're headed for disaster
The tide will drag us out
As the water rises faster
I'll take you by the hand
We'll swim with all our might
If we never make it back
At least we put up a fight

(chorus)
Will we return once more
To stand at these shores
Novelist you and poetaster I
With one last chance to mess this up
Our only story left to write
So my friends,
Let's just take everything we know
Toss is out to sea and let it go
And then live off our dreams and hopes

Beneath these crashing waves
We'll sing songs of the sea
A mermaid's tale of ships and whales
This noise taught us to be
In fact, it taught us everything
We'll ever need to know
To hang here on this moment
On this note!
