"Peaks" as written by Troupe Gammage, Jacob Stewart, Joseph Delahoussaye and Nicolas Wimberly Hurt....
That's as high as it goes
That's as loud as it gets
Take a minute to breathe
Smoke your first cigarette
Scream as loud as you want
Scream as loud as you need
That's what the 90's were for
May they never recede
You could take me with you
I could take you with me
Though we're better off here
I mean ultimately

We don’t need cheering up
We don’t need any more
We don’t need what we want
That’s what the 80’s were for

If you think you’re alive
If you think you’re a man
You were already dead
Before it began
Searching for rock
In a pile of sand
All the kind that you want
‘Till it’s all in your hands

I know, I know it's not the easiest thing
To decide to let the easy things go
Cause it's hard enough without
Another sign that you've slowed down

An emotion is a terrible thing
But emotion is a terrible thing to waste
I've been over it again and again
And the only thing I'm over's the time it takes

Any motion is a hell of a thing
Knowing emotion is a hell of a thing to face
You can do it with your back on the wall
But the oldest ones are always the backs that break

And if you fight with fire
If you wrestle to sleep
May the wrestling end
Now you find what you need
And you fill it with lead
And it fills you with ink
Always less than you want
Always more than you think
You know, you know it's not the easiest thing
To decide to keep the easy things close
Cause it's hard enough without
An open mind to weigh you down

An emotion is a terrible thing
But emotion is a terrible thing to waste
I've been over it again and again
And the only thing I'm over's the time it takes

And emotion is a terrible thing
Knowing emotion is a hell of a thing to face
You can do it with your back on the wall
But the oldest ones are always the backs that break

And emotion is a terrible thing
And emotion is a terrible thing

And emotion is a terrible thing
