Track Name: Sink (KB 2014)
We found a new life riding on the back of a hopeless case and
What we learned was nothing lasts forever
You'd never guess how long it took to feel this way
To feel okay
I met a girl who cut her wrists wide open in my
Bathroom sink
She said I made her sink so low
It's fucked up how bad it gets when you don't pay
Attention to the signs
My heart breaks down like a worn out car
And I can't make excuses anymore
Track Name: Apathy
Cold and familiar
The setting always felt the same beside the railing
Isn't this exactly what we wanted
The damage mutual and precise
Had fragile heartstrings torn apart

Close your eyes pretend you're sleeping
Your guilty actions scream so loud
I waited months
Countless hours for this day
Where in the end I'd see you driving all alone

Meet me tonight next to the railing
By the water and take me
To the warmth of your home
Undressing your flawless body just makes me
Realize I would gladly give my life for your own

Close your eyes pretend you're sleeping
Your guilty actions scream so loud
I waited months
Countless hours for this day
Where in the end I'd see you driving all alone
Track Name: That Ring, Your Laugh, Your Smile
Sure all these things I say won't reach you but I'll sing them anyway
You failed us from the start
Now I'm taking time to breathe
Cause you took the part of me that
Looks at all these pretty things
Look at all these smiles I gave to you

And I don't even want them back
That ring, your scent, your fucking smile
Your presence brings me down

Just go away
Just go away

We didn't even sleep that night
And it snowed as I drove you home
You froze to death inside of me
Recalling all the things we said prepared us for the consequences
We were a perfect demonstration of anxiety

So go away
Deceive me with another
Tell me he's a real man
Did you forget
Our promise and the name you picked our little girl would have cause I can't

And now I have to try my best to forget
This broken promise tattooed on my chest
I'm better off this way
I started counting all the days til' winter comes and ease my summer pain
While you freeze all alone

And I don't even want them back
That ring, your scent, your fucking smile
Your presence brings me down

So go away
Deceive me with another
Tell me he's a real man
Did you forget
Our promise and the name you picked our little girl would have cause I can't
Track Name: Set Me Free
I'll never know
What it's like to complicate
What it means to deviate from everything I know
So set me free
But if you wanna follow me
Redefine my thoughts and I'll discover ecstasy

You found me and I was lost in a dream
But I can't just sleep forever
And I can finally breathe
Enjoy the grass beneath my feet
I'll enjoy it whatsoever

But I'll never know
What it's like to complicate
What it means to deviate from everything I know
So set me free
But if you wanna follow me
Redefine my thoughts and I'll discover ecstasy

Now I'm fading away
(What do I say?)
Now I'm fading away
(What do I say?)
There's nothing left of me
There's nothing left of me at all

Now I'm fading away
(What do I say?)
Now I'm fading away
(What do I say?)
There's nothing left of me
I can create myself again

But I'll never know
What it's like to complicate
What it means to deviate from everything I know
So set me free
But if you wanna follow me
Redefine my thoughts and I'll discover ecstasy
Track Name: Homeless
Some nights you find yourself
Face to face
With men who represent everything
That you're afraid to be
We looked into his eyes
They were empty like a sailor lost at sea
Missing his family

He said he saw Jesus in the bathroom
He was puking up the wine
He so generously created
Out of nothing
Some nights you feel like nothing
Just the scum on these lonely streets

And you made plans to fade away
Or make it better but it never seems to work
So we gave him our pack of cigarettes
Our way of wishing him the best

But if you made me go and take my bet
I bet he didn't make it out of there
He died in the gutter like a dog that night and nobody
Nobody cared
Track Name: Symptoms
Breaking news you're outside with your heart beneath your hands
It's not cardiac arrest
Just the side effects
Do they still haunt you, those days
Embers of the old way
Some still remember but not me

Changing the topic you say
It's alright son
But it's not over, yet
These wounds are fresh
Memories get older everyday
But not colder

Focusing my regrets and my fears
Let me smile at all and burned the passing years
And I'm afraid that I am losing control
Yeah I'm afraid that I am losing control

The crying helps
Things will soon get warmer
No regrets
Just your confidence
Why can't we realize that everything was looking just the same

Focusing my regrets and my fears
Let me smile at all and burned the passing years
And I'm afraid that I am losing control
Yeah I'm afraid that I am losing control
Track Name: Distant Oceans
We saw shooting stars the night before you went away
Laying in a grassy field
The summer before tenth grade
In a small town that I used to hate

Driving down the mountain view highway
And you were talking about the Midwest
The Heartland
How nothing seems to change
Nothing seems to make you laugh anymore

Now I'm a little bit older
Still a little kid
And I have to see the world more than ever
Maybe it would help me get over the guilt
I heard there's cures in endless highways
And distant oceans

I know better than to mess with the fragile
Ground we're standing on
If I followed through it'd be an earthquake
And we would be the first to go
Yeah I got your message but I don't know what to do
I don't wanna be the bad guy
My lips are soaked with passion
And of course
I'm missing you again

Now I'm a little bit older
Still a little kid
And I have to see the world more than ever
Maybe it would help me get over the guilt
I heard there's cures in endless highways
And distant oceans
Track Name: Closure
In your presence I breathed in fresh air
That I haven't felt since the end of last summer
I never thought that the east coast could change you
Don't let it end like this

While you feel alive I drift away
Our past clouds my mind every single day
This closure I can't take
Play a peaceful break

Don't pretend like you're fine
I can see through your lies
So far you don't know who you are
Anymore

While you feel alive I drift away
Our past clouds my mind every single day
This closure I can't take
Play a peaceful break
Track Name: Carry On
Lean over me
It doesn't bother me
I promise that your tears cannot be seen
Your sobs are all I hear inside my dreams
I give up
Please take me in my sleep

You tell me "it's too hard, it's so unfair"
As if the battle in your head was always lost
But the denial was still there
And we all carry on and we forget
We'll tell our friends of all those things that we did wrong
Despite the pain

Carry On
