Track Name: Downtown & Brooklyn
I watched the sun rise over the Brooklyn Bridge
On an express train to Manhattan
Coming back from your place
Ashamed to show my face

I mulled you over, I thought about my life
Another blunder, torn asunder
By a drunken mistake
One that I love to make

And I can’t find myself, don’t know who to look for
I wanna file a missing person’s report
And I don’t know what I want
I’m stabbing in the dark
I’m feeling aimless and increasingly lost

Some days I wake up
I don’t know where I am
A throbbing head, my phone is dead
Another body’s in bed
Painfully sober again

Some days I’m happy
Most days I’m sad as hell
I suffer over every moment
And I wish I could leave
This memory

‘Cause I can’t find myself, don’t know who to look for
I wanna file a missing person’s report
And I don’t know what I want
I’m stabbing in the dark
I’m feeling aimless and increasingly lost

I watched the sun set over the Brooklyn Bridge
On an express train bound for Bay Ridge
Going back to your place
Track Name: Flesh and Blood
It feels like Gotham City tonight
And it’s gonna be a long way home
I’m not out for a fight
Not feeling reckless enough
I’m sorry to walk out on you
I’m sorry to leave you alone
But I’m running on empty tonight
And it’s gonna be a long way home

I can’t remember the last time that I walked in your stead
Your blood runs thick in my veins; your pulse shoots rounds in my neck
I walk down to the station; I stare out onto the tracks
The dark keeps calling me in, but something’s pulling me back

When you want me to bleed I am the open vein
And when I want to be numb you are the Novocain
So steel yourself for the silence before the flood
And take me into your arms, you are my flesh and blood

Can’t shake the feeling that this city is haunted
From every alley and doorway
My demons are always calling my name
From down in the gutters, they poke their heads out
And whisper to me, why don’t you come on down

It feels like Gotham City tonight
And it’s gonna be a long way home
