Track Name: Wide Eyed
Sit on the porch where I grew up
Spinning tales of losing luck
All those days of trying to focus on the time
Hard to decipher what we see
Making plans and wasting dreams
In a haze of unclaimed causes forced to give up early

Tell me this world is out of reach
Tell me I don't have to grieve
For the idealistic reasoning that cures all longing
We never grow in times like these
Forced to censor all our speech
Cutting words and lines til every thought is false and empty

You tried to take advantage
When I was in distress
You turned me into something
I’ve never cared about
Hopeless and set up for a fall if you care when things go wrong

Our hearts never beat with ease
Told to pause everything we feel
And just go on living

The way we used to be
I will not fall back on these
Shattered plans and hopeless dreams
Track Name: Astray
We get misplaced with every step
Each step we take
Fall further back

There is no surprise
Just examples of our demise

It’s a story no one wants to tell
It’s a silence in the way we fail

There is no surprise
Just examples of our demise

Freeze this moment that is stopped
In time
Only for a while

Eyes feel heavy from the sun
All our wishes have been undone
Track Name: Still Corner
I see through it all and can't forget it
We all have known this fear of living
We stretch out our days and curse our endings
We all have known violent hope

And it remains out of sight
Lives and loves lost tonight
Taking shelter in the comforts of ourselves
Ocean of loss, bittersweet thoughts

Somber design, lost sense of urgency
We all have known how to slip away.
Track Name: Submission
Don't tell me we're the same, I'm afraid that's hard to follow
It's much too hard, we'll never make a go
But if you try too hard independence has a way
Of tricking you to stay despite all the best intentions

I can see right through you
Don't make more plans than we can carry out
Don't try, don't try

New submission- gentle minds can get corrupted too
If you pull away we won't have a lot to say
Teaching you to change when you don't believe in anything

I don't expect you to back down
I know you'll find another way out
This loss of self can best account for a lack of anticipation
I don't expect you to back down
Track Name: Mass Produced
Passing every day trying to avoid all fault
Wasting all our time with these comforts and arts
If I can deny that the world's in decay
Everyone around me can do the same

I never thought we could change
Should be the same at any age
So if you wanna see all that's inside of me, know I'll never change

Truth is it's not as sultry inside
Anyone can hold on too tight
Waiting for the time we create something new
Always entertained, held by fear, mass produced

I think I wanna find a way
"It's not my fault," you love to say
Another guess, another day
Guess it's my fault
Track Name: Flashing Red
Vision is blurred
When the storm rolls in.
This life feels deserted passing through
This eternal dream
Stop to listen
Take a moment to forget
Our hearts are flashing red
Falling through the cracks
A place cast in shadows
This life feels deserted passing through
This eternal dream
Stop to listen

I can’t see
I can’t feel
I can’t breathe
I can’t hear
Track Name: Alone
I fell asleep tonight by your side
Despite that look you gave, tried to avoid it
I tried to hide the hurt in my eye
I didn't try to move, you didn't try to speak
You didn't think I'm anything

Some other day we'll come to despise
This deeply hidden trust, learn to ignore it
I tried to hide the guilt in my eye
You never heard me say that we all think it's strange
I don't want you to undermine

That time has gone and now I'm finally on my own
But I'm not too young to understand this time

I forced myself so hard to disguise
The underlying truth, a sense of pressure
Replaying scenes of hope undermined
I didn't try to move, you didn't try to speak
You didn't think I'm anything

Every time you ask a question you extend your reach
If we never give an answer we won't have to speak
Call to question the unrelenting privacy we keep
Track Name: Discarded Skin
Is this the best you’ll get?
I'm in over my head

So just let go
You’ll never know

Desires placed within
Discarded shells of skin
I clench my fists at night
I hold my self tight

So just let go
You’ll never know
All these thoughts I have
These dreams will pass

Lives not made to last
Days go by so fast
Dreaming of the end
Over and again

Ive got no life to lead
Ive got no place to go
I haven’t got a future
I haven’t got a clue

So just let go
Youll never know
All these thoughts I have
These dreams will pass

Just let go
Track Name: Not Sorry
I want to run away, reverse the time
You don't have anything I can't define
We walk in unison, this is my home
Speak not of compromise, discard all you know

I don't know how to say I'm sorry
I don't know how to let it go
That faded glint just takes away our time

You have no honesty, enlist dead souls
No room for mystery, spill all you know

I don't know how to say I'm sorry
I don't know what to do
I can't forget you want to hide
If we can end this odd persuasion and find another way
I guess it's just a natural tie
