Track Name: Spoke
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.
Track Name: Enemy
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.
Track Name: Hands
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..
Track Name: Wasted
Take a good hard look in your basement. I defaced it when I was wasted.
Track Name: September
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
Track Name: Pills
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
Track Name: DNA
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
Track Name: Monster
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.
Track Name: Bloodline
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.
