"Surrender" as written by Alex Band and Aaron Kamm Kamin....
I'm not from around here so I think with my mouth
grew up a comfortable distance from where I am now
so grab me like the animals we were always supposed to be
in these terrace house jungles we'll swing from the rooftops
knowing nothing of the one-way streets that blur underneath our feet
there's a life outside these bottles, there's a love right here for me

But you don't have to surrender if you don't want to

And I'll sit quiet if we have to go home
listening to rubber disturb water and whatever was on the radio
we should be climbing chain-link fences, with backpacks and nowhere to go
and am I satisfied or did I just come to terms with the hunger
that's plagued me all my life
made me live harder when I was younger

You don't have to surrender if you don't want to

And you ask me if I'm drinking again
and you say it like it's a good thing

You don't have to surrender if you don't want to
but I've got my white flag with me here just for you

And the ease of repetition was filling my days
I was comfortably killing myself in a myriad of different ways
and I'm not from around here so I talk like I've been saved
