Song notes[edit]

  • "Amber Lynn" and "Terrible Things" were both new songs. "Terrible Things" was released for streaming on February 22, 2011.[3]
  • "Jamie All Over" was originally a song by Kid Named Chicago, the previous band of Jake Bundrick, Alex Garcia, and Jason Lancaster. It later appeared on Mayday Parade's debut album A Lesson in Romantics. The end of this song is sung by Daniel Lancaster, Jason's brother, much as it is on the version on A Lesson in Romantics.
  • Both "Kids in Love" and "Bruised and Scarred" had appeared on from Mayday Parade's second album Anywhere but Here.
