Track Name: Out Of My Hands
I'm thinking one more round
I'm thinking I want out
It's almost autumn here.
I'm sucha damn hopeless
romantic stupid man who forms a day dream
that consists of heart pounding scenes
and there she stands, so bright and pretty,
she's out of my hands.
I watch the colors fade, I watch the snow fall high
and though as great as it is, I just can't see it
I'm really bad at this, my words are stuttering, my heart is faster now than it's suppose to go and I want and I want and I want and I want you.

It'll just take every bit of strength to get you.
What ya want... Just tell me what you want, I need you. It'll just take every bit of strength to get you.
All we want is what everybody wants I need you.
It'll just take every bit of strength
to get to get to you girl, listen to my words now, everybody wants what everybody wants,
I want you to need me, I want you to need me.
Track Name: My Favorite Lie
I met a girl once, she didn't steal me
She wasn't anything, she wasn't anything
A pretty name yeah, a pretty face yeah,
But I wasn't floating, I wasn't floating
So several days go, she steals a look oh,
She steals another one, I'm stealing other ones.
We share some minutes, some thoughts and
finish another good talk, another good talk
I walk, I fall, I walk, I fall

I wrote a song once and then another one,
and then another one, and then another one
She wrapped her headphones, around her head and
she took a listen, she took a listen.
I think she likes it, I know she loves it.
Because she told me, that's what she told me,
but there's a something, a little something
that she doesn't know, She doesn't know, no no no.

It's you and I in every dream at night
and It's me and you in every daze I dream in the daytime. It's blades of knives slicing up the strings
I use to hold my favorite lie. Yeah the ones I tell
myself... when I need you.

I let a word slip and then another one, and then another one, and then another one.
She took it lightly, but it was heavy,
Yeah more than heavy and it's been keeping me
A little more than a little frightened,
a little numb know, a little dumb now. I thought
I loved you, I swear I loved you, was it just your smile? Was it just your smile and your laugh that could bring me back from the dead and your eyes that could fade my ailments and your body, oh your body, oh your body that could save me from anything.
My fingers are about to bleed.
My throat is getting raw and hurting.
And I'm just another boy with a crush
who didn't have the strength to tell you that...

It's you and I in every dream at night
and It's me and you in every daze I dream in the daytime. It's blades of knives slicing up the strings
I use to hold my favorite lie. Yeah the ones I tell
myself.

And there I go again and it's no wonder why I'm stuck on you. If all you ever did was watch our moving sillouettes, you'd swear I was just a freshmen. You'd swear I was just a freshman trying to marry the prom queen or recreate some scene from a movie. I've written down so many words, on angles forming lines on paper.
But the vocal chords deep in my neck, they lack every bit of strength to sing you this

And it's not alright that I kept this all inside and I lie alone and waiting instead of taking your hand and leading you just to where I needed you right next to me.

And I think you should go
And play this song again
'cause it kind of says
everything
I...
Track Name: The Followthrough Of Fate
It's not up to me
and I hope you know what I mean when I say...
when I say this
All my friends disagree when I say
or act upon these things that I feel...I feel

It's not up to me
And I think I should start to bleed if I say...
If I say this to one more heart
I swear I'm falling for the one, the best, the brightest
glow yeah I swear...I swear.
But you already walk by a side
and you already say goodnight

Do you feel it now?
The followthrough of fate is scaring off itself
But brave enough to hand you any heart but mine
and damnit I can't help but feel
You're better off with me.

They don't hardly move, yeah his eyes and hands
when they share a room with you, why?
yeah, why?
You're way too cool and different to leave behind
yeah you know I'm listenin' you know....you know.
But you already walk by a side
and you already say goodnight

Do you feel it now?
The followthrough of fate is scaring off itself
But brave enough to hand you any heart but mine
and damnit I can't help but feel
You're better off with me.

Oh yeah with me
Oh yeah, you're better off with me.
Yeah, with me.

I tear hearts out, just to fill mine
I tear hearts out, just to fill mine

I swear this happens every time.
Track Name: And I Will Save You Too
I wake, you step, out of your bed, its cold.
I change, you rinse your face, so beautiful.
I know these days, are getting all the same
Just wait, just wait for it

I walk you run, out of a rainy day
you skip sometimes just to remember how
And I watch these drops
you feel them fall alone
Just wait, just wait for it

Here we go again, stale air is filling my lungs
We strain our necks and hands
pressed to our brow we stand
Just wait, one day, when we least expect it
we'll create our day, oh yeah we will remember it every passing second taken in will rival all before it

So save me and I will save you too
to save you is to save me
and to save me is to save you
Just Wait
Track Name: Taken
It's off a ways, her sense for bad.
It's covered up nice by his pretty face.
She says I'll forgive again, he means well.
Everything he says is just so perfectly dressed.
And I bet it feels good when he says im sorry.
Oh I bet he's so so sorry.
And I bet it feels great when you make up.
Oh wake up.

She's taken three now,
the first one is just how every girl dreams
that it will be. Times running low now,
The warnings are less now.
He's gonna be the end of her one evening.

He thieves and breaks whats left to take.
Cause the first one is always the worst.
Do you want everything he says he'll give you?
You define your meaning of the truth
and wait for him. He says he tries so hard.
Just one more chance girl. And yet again,
he's painting pictures so beautiful,
that youll forget who drew them.
You'll forgive and you'll forget
for three more years until you're finally safe.

I think she's had, I think she's had about enough now. I thinks shes out, fresh out of failing herself.
The window latch, the window latch is broken loose now, I think she's got, the strength to lift it.
She's found her way now, we all lose it somehow, cause this worlds so big it wraps around your eyes. You're worth it, you're worth it, you're worth it.
You're standing up now and you found your way. Taken, she's breaking yeah, out of what she hates. Leaving, she's walking, yeah she's not looking back. Oh now she sees how loving her should be
Track Name: Ropes and Ledges
Hey there, whatchya got there?
I've seen a lot here
It looks real nice, it looks real beautiful
You've got your rocks to lean on
You've got your shelter over
And when you cry it's in the cleanest hands
and when you lie you just pray he'll forgive

So take your lines and your passages
and tuck them safe where you like to keep them
'Cause I've been given the lines and passages
and nothin' seems to be workin'
Nothin's bringing me to my knees

I want what you have
I want what carries you home
You sleep so quiet, restful, sound as a stone
I want what you have
I wanna know that I am safe in the end
I wanna know, I wanna know.

So here I lay now, in a bed with no faith
The cloudy sky breaks,
is this a sign I'm dealing with?
I'm suffocating on the lack of trust that I breathe
I'm losing sleep now, I'm slipping farther with ease
Oh you have no idea.
(Oh I want it)

I want what you have
I want what carries you home
You sleep so quiet, restful, sound as a stone
I want what you have
I wanna know that I am safe in the end
I wanna know, I wanna know.

You sleep so soundly while I am wrecking my arms
building questions on tight ropes and ledges.
Track Name: By Your Side
You just lay there and be yourself
and I'll just stay here and feel this out
the so so highly, un-unlikely chance you might
want me be your side

You just stay there and calm yourself
and I'll just sit here and work this out
The oh so likely chance this might be
the reason I can't be by your side.
Track Name: So 7th Grade
Don't you smile
Don't you laugh
Don't you get
Don't you stand any closer
Yeah I know...
this is bad
this is dumb
this is so 7th grade
and I can't seem to help it

I go blind
I go deaf
I will twist your intent
just to feel something happen
Grab it quick
load it fast
jump the gun
shoot it dead
this is how I will end this.

And it feels so nice when my heart beats fast
and it sounds so nice when my head spouts lies
and the grin you wield is just a great disguise
as a sword so sharp I have no idea...

So if you could
be so kind as to let me know
if I should
be getting ready to drive you home
'Cause my nieve insight's
not reflecting what you want for me
and you sit there with your pretty eyes
tearing down my will...again.

I dive in
you get out
I digress
and then you shout
into shadows where I stood
I lay down,
you move in
careful now,
we're brushing skin
I just might find myself
falling further for you while you're thinking
why's he falling for me, he must be dreaming.

So if you could
be so kind as to let me know
if I should
be getting ready to drive you home
'Cause my nieve insight's
not reflecting what you want for me
and you sit there with your pretty eyes
tearing down my will

Falling for you
Falling for you
Falling for you
Track Name: States
So what, so what, so what
you're just states, states, states away.
It's just roads and trees and sky and they dont, they dont, they dont, mean a thing.

I lie down next to the thought of you,
envisioning plans so sweet,
knowing just what we'd do.
There's so much, so much, so much to you
that I cant, I cant, I cant, hold it in.
You're a room, with shelves and stairways and corridors aligned next to trap doors that lead to more.

We connect at the head and collide at the heart
and collisions like this don't leave much room for living but we're the exception cause we're so much better yeah, we're the exception cause we're so much better than...

I lie down next to the
I lie down next to the
I lie down next to the thought of you.

.
Track Name: It's An Ambush (The Young Man's Heart Attack)
I am left here just a little bit speechless staring at the time. Taken by surprise, I am struck from behind
and dragged by my heels. On a very different day
you once told me you would never leave. But you left out the part where I keep you busy till the better man takes the lead.

Are you feeling lighter now?
Is he bringing out your best side?
Are you telling him forever now?

I'm awoken in a room with a horrible view and my feet are tied. And the hands that used to touch your hair are lying on the concrete. I used to think without It I would sink to the bottom of an endless see. But after hearing all the words I've heard I'm learnin' that the words don't mean a thing.

Are you feeling lighter now?
Is he bringing out your best side?
Are you convincing him forever now?
Is he the "million to one hard" find?
Are you sleeping better now
that your "true love" warms your side?
Are you ready for forever now?
Knowing you let us die?

I'm not one to hold on to dirt but,
girls, if I don't get this out this could
turn out with you sleeping just just fine at night
and at night I want you crying
I want you crying, regretting everything
I want you soaking up your sleeves
I want you kicking, yeah kicking yourselves envious
It's not me....It's not me you'll be waking with.

Are you feeling lighter now?
Is he bringing out your best side?
Are you convincing him forever now?
Is he the "million to one" hard find?
Are you feeling better now
that your "true love" warms your side?
Are you ready for forever now?
Knowing you let us die?
Track Name: Fighting For The Sun
I fall through all my words
There there now, please
don't be so hard on yourself
I'm stuck in these shoes
Laced so tight my toes are black
Toe-less I crawl my way
through alone I lay

Wondering and waiting for
everything to happen like I dream
Waiting and wondering
why my feet have been so heavy for the passed 4 years.
...for years...

I fear...and I fear.
You gather up, you gather up your strength
You push it out, you push it out in shades
All I got, all I got is what's in me
All I want, all I want is what's in you.
The stronger and the leading
I feel diseased. Unmoving is my heart to want it.
I face the black. Not knowing what's beneath me, I tread this sea. I'm kicking waves and my head is fighting for the sun. My arms and legs break down, the bitterness takes me whole. I'm kicking up waves of my own my heart is fighting for the light to take me home. Oh yeah I see the light.

And my envy knows not why you choose to walk the path you choose to walk, the strength you wield inside, I've fallen subject to what we all hate the most, what we all fear we'll see within ourselves so take me home.

Fighting for light I'm breaking waves of my own, I'm losing my sight the salt is taking my eyes. Writhing my arms in ways no ocean has seen, I'm ripping apart the current that owns me, yeah. I'm fighting, Yeah I'm fighting for the sun. I'm fighting, yeah for the sun. I'm fighting, yeah I'm fighting for the sun, I'm fighting.
Track Name: The Departed
You're looking cold
you're looking stiff my dear
I wonder if you even feel me
while I enlarge my lungs upon your chest
as I am breathing.

It's been so long since it was new
but that's got nothing to do with
all the silence in a room
and our expressionless stares that never change
I swore it wouldn't happen
and I promised that it wouldn't be like
all the broken smiles and broken lines
of conversation that they hate.

Your heart beat falls asleep
and your eyes fall victim to a hazy glaze
and you lie there next to me
and I hear nothin'

It's plenty warm in here
But I can still see the frost on your lips
My words upon your skin
were never less than everything you loved.
It's been so long since it was you
who I could say without a doubt
could take my hand and take my heart
and make it lighter than the air itself.

Your heart beat falls asleep
and your eyes fall victim to a hazy glaze
and you lie there next to me
and I hear nothin'

So let's decide what we're doing here
cause I swear we died the day we turned our backs
and we'll walk the ground beneath these cold dead feet while we know we lie with every kiss goodnight

Goodnight, goodnight, goodnight

Everything we weren't
was everything we should have said
Her heart is leaking out while yours is bleedin'
Everything we weren't
was everything we should have done
Her heart is bleeding out while yours is freezin'.
Track Name: Shouting Up Storms
Is it just me, or is it dark in here?
Who smashed the light switch
and why would you do that?
You were my only light keeping me safe.
Where did you go now, where did you go now?
Cause I'm lying, broken down.

And I just can't believe,
like a card up your sleeve
that I've arrived here
Who downed the street signs
and why would you do that?
You were my only light keeping me brave.
Where did you go now, where did you go now?

Cause I'm broken and screaming,
shouting up storms to the walls,
knocking them down like a bird who wants out
Oh, I'll fly, don't think I wont.
I'm sinking and yelling,
talking down flesh to the core,
till a man I am no more. No more.

I stood eyes wide,
mouth shut, hands out
and I'll take what you give
but not without care and a tread with caution
The bright glow dies slow
This dim room is not my home
and I sift through every word you breathe
with a wariness I hate to wield.

Cause I'm broken and screaming,
shouting up storms to the walls,
knocking them down like a bird who wants out
Oh, I'll fly.
I'm sinking and yelling,
talking down flesh to the core,
till a man I am no more. No more.

Like the sand and sea, like the sweetest child, like a danger's heed, nothing ever stays the same. I was holding up, proud my strongest stone. Now I bring it down to trace the tiny cracks of a broken home. Like a buried seed, like a frantic cry, like a vessel bleeds, nothing ever stays the same. I was standing up, this was something strong. Now I'm biting tongues and grinding teeth till I kneel alone. Like the sand and sea, like the sweetest child, like a danger's heed, nothing ever stays the same. I was holding up, proud my strongest stone. Now I bring it down to trace the tiny cracks of a broken home.
Track Name: Arrows Through Avarice
I fall into doubt,
carrying what I know in a chest weighed in hope.
That you'll fall into love
with a boy who is lost
and can't offer you much but his heart.

Oh it's amazing and it's yours for the taking
I'll part...you from the darkness
in an all coated world full of thorns.

I stood at cliffs hanging high
with rocks down below,
spelling out, "You're not worth her time."
And now I know those were words of a fool
cause I have so much for you, like my heart.

Oh it's amazing and it's yours for the taking
I'll part...you from the darkness
in an all coated world full of thorns.

I know I'm walking lousy and maps I touch and fold have been bleeding the ink right off the page. And I know I'm probably lacking the stars you used to dream of as you were lying on your back in a daze. And I lay my life down as a promise you can bet I will fight. So just take, just take my hand and lie down next to me as I am. As I am.

Save me now, he said, save me now and fight the fallen, deadened of shallow love. Have me now, I said have me now and right the very fear I've been wading in. If you cannont show this, you cannot hold this oversized swollen heart. If you cannot show this, you cannot hold this oversized swollen heart. But if you can, then you can...you can hold my heart.
