Track Name: Untouchable
The kings and queens of box wine sit and dine
A kingdom made of candy castle walls ten stories high
They say one day we'll grow up to be old, or so we're told
We, thought of what it's gonna be
When these adults set us free
So many rules with no decree
Now you wear a gown of PBR, crown of cigars for me

We are untouchable with nothing to lose
We are unstoppable with something to prove
Later we'll be left to pay our dues
But right now were are untouchable…

We're fighting for a feud that doesn't sleep
Fending off grey hairs with lesser cares of what to eat
Try'n to put our futures in reverse to stop the curse we're bound to meet

We are untouchable with nothing to lose
We are unstoppable with something to prove
Later we'll be left to pay our dues
But right now were are untouchable…

We, all have more than one tattoo
You got ones you never knew
Ones that life drew onto you
The scars under your skin are memories you will forget slowly

We are untouchable with something to lose
We are unstoppable with something to prove
Someday we'll grow old and pay our dues
But right now were are untouchable…
Track Name: Oh My Sweet Virginia
Excuse me one second while I chuck these empty bottles off my desk
I confess we went a little wild
Excuse me a second while I pull these shards of broken expectations from my chest of your desire

But everybody talks, about how you turned your passions inside out
Everybody talks and everybody knows

Oh my sweet Virginia, your not the girl that I once held
You used to be my lover, now you love without a care
But that sweet Virginia, is the girl I bid farewell
I held you once, now you gotta hold yourself

Last night in Allston dancing salsa with the rats up on the street
Your no where on my mind
Last night in Allston you run out his house wearing his bedroom sheets
a mess, but your still fine

Then you turn around, and you see me dancing, you make it a duet
Now its morning and I'm trying to forget

Oh my sweet Virginia, your not the girl that I once held
You used to be my lover, now you love without a care
But that sweet Virginia, is the girl I bid farewell
I held you once, now you gotta hold yourself

Oh my sweet Virginia, your not the girl that I once held
You used to be my lover, now you love without a care
But that sweet Virginia, is the girl I bid farewell
I held you once, now you gotta hold yourself
Track Name: London
Shut up and drive I'm leaving today, I know where I'm going
There's only one place where I wanna stay, London has been calling
I'll get away from here, I'll get away from her
I'll get away from here, from her, from here, from her

Ooh Ooh, In the dark my nightmares are about
Ooh Ooh, the way she broke my heart and threw it out
Ooh Ooh, After all this time I've figured out

I wanna go to London
and fall in love a thousand times
I wanna go to London
and fall in love a thousand times

Got on the plane, I'm drinking away, thinking what did I do wrong
I'll be on a bench and look up at Ben
asking where the time has gone
What did you do with her, where did she go?
The girl I knew I loved, I didn't want to let her go

Ooh Ooh, In the dark my nightmares are about
Ooh Ooh, the way she broke my heart and threw it out
Ooh Ooh, After all this time I've figured out

I wanna go to London
and fall in love a thousand times
I wanna go to London

She deserved the world, and I deserved her just
Just the way I left her, in the bedroom, big bright eyes and so alive
The kids we were so far away, I'm still in love with yesterday

Ooh Ooh, In the dark my nightmares are about
Ooh Ooh, the way she broke my heart and threw it out
Ooh Ooh, After all this time I've figured out

I wanna go to London
and fall in love a thousand times
I wanna go to London
and fall in love a thousand times
I wanna go to London
I wanna go to London
I wanna go to London
and fall in love a thousand times
