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

Apathy 04:34
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

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

Set Me Free 03:29
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

Homeless 02:01
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
6.
Symptoms 03:30
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

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

Closure 03:43
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
9.
Carry On 02:33
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
