Spoke 02:36
Remember when we barely spoke? I think that's when you mattered most. Get lost inside a subtle joke and hit me where it hurts the... Remember when you looked at me? You called me reckless and talk was cheap. You hoarded all the best of me and blew the rest at your convenience This is what you meant by making progress? This is what I get for being honest. Don't bother coming back when it's convenient. Your straight-laced mind prerogative to never be so sensitive But, every word that I say hurts and cuts you to the... Remember when we saw our ghost? I think that's when I mattered most. You disappear in clouds of smoke and haunt when it doesn't matter anymore.

Enemy 03:41
Wait, I think I lost my place again and I can really use a friend. I was stuck in my head. Stay, just until I'm awake To see how much you can take Until this all folds and breaks Am I the enemy? Or am I just visiting? Wait, I think I lost my place again and I can really use a friend. I was stuck in my head. Stay, just until I'm awake To see how much you can take Until this all folds and breaks These are the Gods that we've invented, the ones better left for dead.

Hands 03:37
Try and sleep next to a liar or to me Or would you rather me not speak? Is it getting harder to breathe? It's you or me Don't you dare say that to me A busted light on your christmas tree Dimly lit under your father's dreams No you cannot escape death It just doesn't work like that, it just doesn't work like that No you cannot escape death It just doesn't work like that, it's not as simple as holding hands Can't you pay it forward brother? Another old dusted book cover Lines your shelves with memories And all your dreams, well did they come through in the end? Or would you rather me just send another card to your kids again? No you cannot escape death, It just doesn't work like that..

Wasted 01:16
Take a good hard look in your basement. I defaced it when I was wasted.

September 03:05
Cut me to ribbon so I don't become a hazard to you all Yeah, bend where I can break and send me away Extra tips for that punk valet who said we would not feel a thing But, oh my God... Was it too late for us? It was the first of September When I first saw her In that dress with those lips and her words She got me. When I see you standing there, so cute and unprepared Such a pretty little thing, such a pretty little thing But, when I come home late at night She'd be up and taking flight Such a dreadful little thing, such a pity little scene. Pull the sheets off your feet darling A little colder we'll feel nothing besides The warmth of our breath and the secrets we hide We were aching and honest, but we were taking chances Yeah, not the best ones But, we had good intentions Cut me to ribbon so I don't become hazard to myself And oh my God... I've said too much

Pills 04:18
Don't go I'm on my knees with the door closed These tears are burning my eyes And I can see yours outside Please stay Fight my demons away My indecision and pain My father's cocaine The light that I can't see Your promise that you will break You promised me that you'll stay And you'll eat my dark away The darkness I can't break The pressure builds on me Just promise we'll be okay And you'll eat my dark away If it's something I can't see (Pressure) Then it's something I don't need (All this Pressure) If it's something I can't see (Pressure) Then it's something I won't be (All this pressure) The light that I can't see This pressure builds on me You promised we'd be okay And you'd eat my dark away The light that I can't see This pressure builds on me You promised we'll be okay Just eat my dark away... I swear that it's not my fault These god damn pills make my skin crawl So God stop talking to me And I'll start listening

DNA 02:51
How long have you been in the bathroom? You've been crying every night this week Is it something I can't relate to? I'll wait by the door till you speak If we talk being honest Being honest with ourselves It's something I can't relate to so what the hell? She said, "Get bent, don't let it go to your head" It's not about us being happy It's about making it work and making out at 4 in the morning We're taught the basic semantics With the backdoor addicts And all the Lost Boys that got so close To the alley way that's where you told me That you loved me the same as you did that day But, this always ends with your hands to close to mine

Monster 03:12
There's a monster in my room. It tells me what to do. It controls every move, and I think it's you. You've been there my whole life. You'll stay here till I die and then it'll come for you. Oh, all the little things that it says to me, like it knows my name. Oh, all the little lies and it's yellow eyes It doesn't know my name There's a monster in my room. It tells me what to do. It controls every move, and I know it's you. You've been there my whole life. You'll stay here till I die and then it'll come for you. If I don't bury this, it will follow me like a shadow. It will live forever. And you say it's all in my head and that these pills will kill the monster under my bed. But, I don't feel any different. I'm still not alive. This monster got me by the heart.

Bloodline 03:35
We're alone, we're alone A bloodline bred for enslavement Turn to stone, turn to stone We're ground down and turned into pavement I can feel the branches cracking under my feet I don't know why I'm running but I'm sure it's a dream I got close to the water and I looked inside Saw the image of our Father and His lack of pride I struck at my reflection and awoke in a sweat Pulled the sheets off of my body and then over my head Jason turned to Michael and they kept outside Said "Maybe it is better to keep the demons outside" Oh my God. We're alone, we're alone A bloodline bred for enslavement Turn to stone, turn to stone We're ground down and turned into pavement I can feel the branches cracking under my feet I don't know why I'm running but I'm sure it's a dream I got close to the water and I looked inside Saw the image of our Father and His lack of pride I struck at my reflection and awoke in a sweat Pulled the sheets off of my body and then over my head Jason turned to Michael and they looked inside Saw the image of our Father and His lack of pride Oh my God. He took the long way up the stairs Down the hallway, his parents bedroom A gun in hand, his gun in hand. He took the long (took the long way) way up the stairs Down the hallway (took the long way) his parents bedroom His gun in hand, his gun in hand.
