Track Name: Talking Myself In Circles
Talk is cheap

You caught me on another losing streak

I wish you didn’t have to watch me bleed

As I pick up all the pieces that are left of me

Trying to look on the upside
But maybe I’m upside down

I tried to fill the space between us
When we were more than just a couple miles apart

Get a map, draw a line that connects you and I

And follow it to the end to start all over again

I keep repeating the same thing without any meaning

Just hoping that it takes me back to the beginning

I just keep talking myself in circles

Talking round and round in circles

What’s with the attitude

How about a little bit of gratitude?

Forgive my sweet and sour point of view

Because I already know the truth of what you think of me

Trying to look on the brightside
Maybe I’m just burnt out
Track Name: Learn To Love The Lie
I wish it was just another day

Another ordinary, nothing extraordinary,

Just a boring Sunday morning

When doing nothing’s the only something we’ve got planned

But not today

We're falling apart and its showing that were

Basically just trapped in captivity

Wishing our way out

Just Let me cross my fingers behind my back
And I’ll swear on anything you want me to after that

I’ve heard that if I cross my heart then I’d have to die

If you don’t want to say goodbye

Then I guess you’ll have to learn to love the lie

You and me...we’re really nothing but enemies
Pretending we're not meant to be

I don’t want to be the one to stay

I don’t want to be the one that got away

And if I’m being honest, you couldn’t get rid of me anyway

I don’t want to be the one to stay

What the hell? For heaven's sake

I don’t want to be the one that got away

If Massachusetts had a loyalty
I hope it wouldn’t choose you over me

And if you’re wondering what keeps me up at night

It's thinking that you might be right

You and me, we’re really nothing but enemies
Pretending that’s exactly how it's supposed to be

You can say what you want about me
The old me would not apologize
You can do what you want without me

If only I could keep us from colliding

Over analyzing every move we make

We think we're just surviving but slowly we were dying

Until the rattle somehow brings us back to life

So let's learn to love the lie
Track Name: Brain Pain
Watch me fail, watch me struggle
Creeping forward as straight as an arrow

Smash it all, catch me when I fall

Feel the rain, feel the thunder

All the chaos is dragging me under

Shoulder the blame, hang my head in shame

I wish that I could focus my hopeless wandering mind

I’m losing perspective, tearing out all my insides
Looking in from the outside

What’s the point? What’s the purpose?

All this attention is making me nervous

Clear the air, watch them disappear

Keep it simple, shake the doubt

Just surrender myself to the sound

Refuse to be a part of the great machine

I want to glow in the shadow
I want to shimmer enough to fade away

Smash it all, and catch me when I fall

Take me or leave me

Healthy or bleeding

Starve me or feed me
Pinch me, I’m dreaming
Smash it all, catch me when I fall
