Track Name: Remembering
The noise pollution silence brings, the devil's song the siren sings, seduce me into dark and sleep, wake up on the sandy beach.
This medication keeps me awake, the memories of you are too strong to fade and I know you won't go away even if I scream your name.
Emotion mixed, toss and turn. Ocean waves, crash and churn. Clutter in my mind from the things you left behind, leaving me loving you.
This medication keeps me awake, the memories of you are too strong to fade and I know you won't go away even if I scream your name.
Sitting in the tide with his back to the ocean, waves overtake him, come down and crush him (Déjà vu!).
Déjà vu! I've been here before in my dreams, sink to the ocean floor. As I fall apart at the seams is this what I asked for? I've been here before in my dreams, sink to the ocean floor. Oh come now sleep, what more could I ask for?!
Track Name: Broken Glass (feat. Chase Coy)
And I stopped wearing shoes on my feet so I could feel the world breathe, but I am stepping on broken glass from where I used to be. Is it worth my time to stop now or should I go ahead? Turn around and come back or have you already left?
Go easy on me, you don't have to let me down so hard so fast. Go easy on me, I'm still fragile from flight, marked with a glass of wine. Go easy on me, you don't have to let me down so hard so fast Go easy on me, I'm still fragile from flight but I'll be just fine.
[Chase Coy] And now you stand in front of me, waiting for me to fall in your arms, but its not where I wanna be. (No its not where) I wanna be free from you and what you are, you fooled me once but never again and that's my lesson learned.
Go easy on me, you don't have to let me down so hard so fast. Go easy on me, I'm still fragile from flight, marked with a glass of wine. Go easy on me, you don't have to let me down so hard so fast. Go easy on me, I'm still fragile from flight but I'll be just fine.
If it ever gets better, we may never know. But this isn't how it should go! My heart is fragile, you're my wrecking ball and chain. Memories of you are broken glass inside my veins. And I am stepping on broken glass.
Track Name: Bricks
The walls here are boring, empty white like my mind. Linoleum flooring and slick wax shine. The smell of rose petals floats through my mind, making memories of us staying up all night (Staying up all night!).
She fills up the empty space on my canvas white, distracting me from boring things and painting through the night.
The walls here are boring, empty white like my mind but my only salvation to pass away the time. Flowers smell of bee stings paranoid in fright, Masked my memories of us staying up all night (Staying up all night!).
She fills up the empty space on my canvas white, distracting me from boring things and painting through the night. She fills up the empty space on my canvas white, distracting me in my own head and painting through the night.
Track Name: Stone and Sand
I am the heat inside your chest, I am the hand laid on your breast above your heart to tell you everything you feel is real. So soft spoken, words of doubt and fear dribble from your mouth to form the ocean of your insecurities right at my feet. And you act as if I'm not there, formed from broken places elsewhere like I got behind the wheel in my hometown and won't look back. My own problems lay behind me but they catch up cause that black sea left behind has a tide and it swells up to follow me.
Every single mistake, every broken heart, every time I've felt alone its cause I thought I was at home but just awoke to find myself and only me, only me.
Grains of sand in my hand, fistfuls of life that fall apart when I turn them over to see what the talk is about. And it seeps through my fingers and some through my skin as I take with me a memory of when you and I were stone and sand.
Every single mistake, every broken heart, every time I've felt alone its cause I thought I was at home but just awoke to find myself and only me, only me.
I am an abandoned house left to rot in the clouds and the weather. My passion sparked up a flame in the chimney the fire flowing over into every room, out through every window that I used to stare out of. Into everything, out of time, I must get out so I can watch the things I love disintegrate and turn to ash, ash and dust.
Every single mistake, every broken heart, every time I've felt alone its cause I thought I was at home but just awoke to find myself and only me, only me.
Track Name: House and Machine
Seamless perfection, robotic machine. Carbon copy, paste, repeat. Electrical sparks, your fire and steam. Music made, waste, repeat.
I can't decide, does this make it better or worse? We're like a house of machines where nothing works.
Roots break our foundation at the bottom of this shallow lake. Fictitious trees, magnetized dreams I'll tear you apart each stitch from the seam.
I can't decide, does this make it better or worse? We're like a house of machines where nothing works.
When all of this is done I swear (I swear) I'll rip out your wires. Malfunction and decay as your body burns away!
And I can't decide, does this make it better or worse? We're like a house of machines where nothing works.
Track Name: Closure/Comfort
I'm rusting from the inside out with every breath of oxygen I take. The thought is poison in my veins, eating me more with every day. (Closure) is all I crave, (Comfort) is so far away.
The life I want, the life I chose is killing me. I wanna get out of this place. I've lost control of everything, deteriorate.
The fire is out in the lighthouse, the captain gives up the wheel. As this bridge collapses upon us, is this ship made of paper or steel?
I don't know why I can't get out!
The life I want, the life I chose is killing me. I wanna get out of this place. I've lost control of everything, deteriorate.
When you wake up, start dreaming. Don't let nightmares keep you awake. When you wake up, start believing in what your heart has to say. (I woke up from an invention, inside my head you were alive. No knocks outside with best intentions, inside my head you're still alive.)
Track Name: Modern Thieves
Life's like a movie, the reel spinning faster than the world revolves in miles per hour. Don't you wish we could pause and rewind, remember the things we left behind? Through all of the pain we could just fast forward but then we'd miss all the lessons we've learned.
These modern thieves are stealing me from all my dreams and hopeful things. These modern thieves are leaving me without my speech when everything is gone.
You suck the life from my lungs, I sharpen my knife and my tongue to fight off (fight off) the people stealing our time and each breath is a minute wasted. As I gasp for air you take it without remorse or second thoughts on what I could have done.
Call me crazy but forever's looking shaky. The shadows pull me in and under. Whats the price of wasted time? Whats the price of wasted life?
This is a means to an end, why fight this? Why fight this? When we all live like we're dead, why bother trying to survive death?
