Track Name: Out the Window
Out the window
I see a side of things overflow
I need the collar off of me
So frustrating
I see all the seasons
I think just keeping up with things has to go

If I could see a million miles away
We might live another day
Raise your hands for me
I’ll be waiving while I’m waiting

Out the window
I see another side of me getting old
I see around the little things
Overrated
I resolve my reasons
I feel the stronger side of me letting go

If I could see a million miles away
We might live another day
Raise your hands for me
I’ll be waiving while I’m waiting

I see all my reasons
Track Name: Awake and Alone
I try
I always want to be complete
Always searching for a way to find some meaning or
To wake up from these dreams

My life
Is where I fear to make a change
Wandering away from all these empty things
Away from all this weight

For a change I’ve been waiting for no one
On my way awake and alone

When we lie
To try and make a brighter day we never realize that
Sleeping with our enemies is getting in the way of
Our lives
We’re shattering our faith and watching all our
Empty feelings taking shape

For a change I’ve been waiting for no one
On my way awake and alone

For a change you’re gone
It’s all the same
Awake and alone
Track Name: Tonight We Die For
On my own on my own I’m feeling fine
Till I see till I see a life line
All alone all alone she’ll be just fine
Jump back jump back and start again

I think your coming but it’s only a maybe
There’s always time to say goodnight
I think my sanity’s been leaving me lately
It ends tonight

Show me show me I can see the ending
Let me know it’s what you want
Let it go and tonight I’ll be everything you want
Tonight

Riding home riding home it’s on my mind
Is it me is it me in my mind
Not alone not alone and feeling fine
Jump back jump back and start again

You think your coming but it’s only a maybe
There’s always time to say goodnight
I think my sanity’s been leaving me lately
It ends tonight

Show me show me I can see the ending
Let me know it’s what you want
Let it go and I can be anything you want
So you know it’s got to be the real thing
Better give it all you’ve got
And I know that tonight I’ll be everything I’m not

Tonight we die for tonight
Track Name: Keepers are Killers
Something evil’s coming at me again
Until I need it I can keep it underneath my skin
Like pins and needles pushing underneath my eyes
Until they’re satisfied they’re never satisfied

Like a demon I can feel you scratching down my spine
A little deeper and I’ll need you like a suicide
Nothing’s sweeter than a keeper killing you inside
I’m candy in her eyes

Don’t get what you need get what you’re waiting for
It’s not what you keep

The way I’m running now I’ll never get out alive
The state that I’m coming down I’ll never get out alive

I searched for feeling and it burned me again
I searched for meaning but I found it easier to sin
So misleading all the bleeding just to stay alive
Until they realize they never realize

I think I’m free but I still keep you for the rainy times
I don’t need you till I’m breathing you in
There’s nothing sweeter than a keeper killing you inside
I’m candy in her eyes

Don’t get what you need get what you’re waiting for
It’s not what you keep

The way I’m running now I’ll never get out alive
The state that I’m coming down I’ll never get out alive

Something evil’s coming at me again
Until I need it I can keep it underneath my skin
Like pins and needles pushing underneath my eyes
They’re never satisfied

Don’t get what you need get what you’re waiting for
It’s not what you keep
Track Name: In My Skin
I catch a feeling and it gets me by
Another reason to be free and anti this battle that you want
I took a beating and it keeps me sober
Another reason to be laughing over all of your lies
And I fuck it up
Cause you’re showing up and

I keep letting you in my skin
Another page another page in life
Now I’m making me new again

I start to need you cause you get me high
You give me feelings that are all so lifelike
It’s nothing else that I ever needed but it keeps me closer
Another reason to be laughing over all the denials
Cause I fuck it up
When you’re showing up and

I keep letting you in my skin
Another page another page in life
Now I’m making me new again

Your face is sore
But you made me
My faith is yours

I keep letting you in my skin
Another page another page in life
Now I’m making me new again

My faith is yours
Track Name: A Place That Doesn't Rain
If everything was as easy as planned
We would be here and more then just memories
Just seeing these things that slip through our hands
Are there to keep us remembering

Memories bring the pain again
Tears begin to rain

And they
Fall underneath the weight and give
It all

Contrary to what we thinks in our hands
We’re only here and hoping we’re ready
Time keeping is just keeping up with the sand
Its only keeping us buried

Memories bring the pain again
Tears begin to rain

And they
Fall underneath the weight and give
It all

So take this from me
I need to find a place where I can take this from me
Take this from me
I need to find a place that doesn’t rain

When its raining all the faces seem so cold
Everybody finds a way to turn to stone
Are we just afraid to face what we don’t know
Track Name: Crawlspace
Take out the violins our fate is to be waiting
Our hearts bleed generous wrapped up and for the taking

Walk to the edge of this we look without it fazing
How deep or far it is so close without the hazing
Line up like silhouettes all searching for an ending
Looking for relevance only finding the waiting

Frame me, a picture of your heartache
Make me a fixture in your crawlspace
Until you drag me under

Always the same defense lines in a story changing
File under consequence all sins that need erasing
Suck out our innocence we’re just willing and waiting
Dancing marionettes fucking our guilt away

Frame me, a picture of your heartache
Make me a fixture in your crawlspace
Until you drag me under
Drag me out

We sit our heads in our hands, wondering how it began
So far we’re all left waiting; we sit our heads in our hands

Suck out our innocence we’re just willing and waiting
Dancing marionettes fucking our guilt away

Frame me, a picture of your heartache
Make me a fixture in your crawlspace

We sit our heads in our hands
Our heads in our hands and we’re all left waiting
Track Name: Savior Self
Shot down and stepped on until we learn
Just get our best side then we’re off to war
Rose colored cyanide
We paint our faces till we burn but it looks tight

Save yourself you’re not alone
Save yourself you’re not alone

Got a lot to learn about giving and taking
Got a lot of burns from giving it all
Live to love another day and maybe you’ll be someone
Give in to suffering and hate you’ll die alone

So run away till I feel the freedom in my face
Never let it go

Lined up and spit on with the words
Just get your act right don’t be what you are
Champagne and iodine
They treat our wounds like they don’t hurt

Save yourself you’re not alone
Save yourself you’re not alone

Got a lot to learn about giving and taking
Got a lotta burns from giving it all
Live to love another day and maybe you’ll be someone
Give in to suffering and hate you’ll die alone

So run away till I feel the freedom in my face
Never let it go
Get away the color of your hate has been replaced
Never let it show

Save yourself save yourself
Track Name: Make Me Weak
She said I know you’re gonna be ok
You know it has to be this way I mean it
I said I feel like I should be ashamed
I think I kind of feel the same
Do you believe that

I’m sorry for all this
Did you love me be honest
It’s hard to say the things we say
When we mean it

You make me weak from underneath
Like suffocating
From on my knees all I can see
Is everything

I punished me again today
Hoping I could take away these feelings
I think I might’ve found the way
It’s easier when I’m the blame
And so redeeming

You’re loving but hopeless
I’m calming but not flawless
Today was not an easy day
You can keep it

You make me weak from underneath
Like suffocating
From on my knees all I can see
Is everything
Track Name: Eyes Can't Meet
Sad sad songs
Don’t belong in places memories haunt
Cold reminders of how it’s too late, I wasn’t there enough

I still breathe Someday I’ll sleep I just need
Saving when we can’t see the ending
Apart still hiding away
When eyes can’t meet I just wait

We just hold on
Try to buy the line that life goes on
All the while find that life’s just wrong and we’re not better off

I still breathe Someday I’ll sleep I just need
Saving when we can’t see the ending
Apart still hiding away
When eyes can’t meet I just wait

All this time alone I can not believe your face I see it when I’m sleeping
When I dream alone I still realize the end I see it I’m left screaming

I still breathe Someday I’ll sleep I just need
Saving when we can’t see the ending
Apart still hiding away
When eyes can’t meet I just wait

When I sleep alone I can’t believe your face I see it where I’m sleeping
When I dream alone now I realize the end is near and I don’t fear it
