Track Name: Indefinite
Are we so unknown, and is it indefinite? In a world so alone, born here to die in it. We trade our souls for symmetry and sugar coated remedies. Are we so unknown, and is it indefinite? Shot nerves, hurt feelings. Eyes tacked to the ceiling. Line hooked and I'm reeling. It's time I started living. (Started living.) The pendulum, it's swinging. The sound of bronze is ringing. I've still got air in my lungs, there's got to be a meaning. Are we so unknown, and is it indefinite? In a world so alone, born here to die in it. We trade our souls for symmetry and sugar coated remedies. Are we so unknown, and is it indefinite?
Track Name: Knife Dance
If we keep picking the scabs off, they're never gonna heal. We can't rely on these sad songs to tell us how to feel. Couple of bearers of bad news, the casualties of greed. Shifted the gears on a short fuse, and now we're gaining speed. Is it youth or is it you that I'm aching for? No room for faith anymore. Tempting pursuit, diamond eyes. You kept the blade by your side. Tossed up a rat race we're exchanging for both our lives. Piss poor excuse for another closed door. Cling to remorse when all we wanted was so much more. We've smoked this down to the filter, It's killing me to speak. Dancing on the ash of disaster. We're immersing underneath, A closet that's stacked to the shim, with skeletons singing hymns. Over and over again. Long kiss goodbye, jealous friend. Is it youth or is it you that I'm aching for? No room for faith anymore. I guess we owe it to ourselves. We've been strolling through hell. Tempting pursuit, diamond eyes. You kept the blade by your side. Tossed up a rat race we're exchanging for both our lives. Piss poor excuse for another closed door. Cling to remorse when all we wanted was so much more. You're just sex & drugs. You're all of the things that we made up, in our heads. In your bed. I don't wanna go, but I have to.
Track Name: The Difference
Wake up and put on your new shade. Paint it on with addiction. This is the first time that you've ever felt alive. This is not the way it's supposed to be. I thought that we were family, but the time has come to figure out where the difference lies and see the world through honest eyes. Just admit it. Let the truth fall from your lips, cause I've known too many liars and their decline started just like this. Well, I'm not perfect and I'm no saint, but I won't sit here and take the blame, while you bite the hand that feeds. I'd rather shoot the pilot and crash the plane. This is not the way it's supposed to be. I thought that we were family, but the time has come to figure out where the difference lies and see the world through honest eyes. It's so hard to be faithful when you're just lying through your teeth. I played my part in your downfall, and still you turned your back on me. My mind is tracing and replacing. My heart is beating through my chest. I'm at the bottom of the bottle, trying to figure out what's left. This is not the way it's supposed to be. I thought that we were family, but  the time has come to figure out where the difference lies and see the world through honest eyes. (Listen when I say I've had enough. This is not a game. It's thick as blood.)
Track Name: Enemy
Here's my refusal to be another one of your scapegoats. I'm reminding you to breathe, cause we've flooded all of your lifeboats. In hopes that you'll see the damage you're inflicting. Every method that you preach is contradicting. There's nothing left to say. You're the catalyst of hate. Enemy. So set in your own ways. Just know that you remain my enemy. Here's my negation to believe there was ever an age of innocence. This type of ignorance is bleak. You're so white eyed to existence. Just let us decide for ourselves. You're as deceptive as a turncoat. We're still trying to stomach all of what you've shoved down our throats. There's nothing left to say. You're the catalyst of hate. Enemy. So set in your own ways. Just know that you remain, my enemy. We choose to find our peace on earth. You chose to stand in the way, this is your curse. You're like a garland of thorns on a black hearse. You brought this on yourself, when will you learn?
Track Name: Foxholes & Deathbeds
Such vandals of teen angst bullshit, They keep clawing at all of our scars. We've revealed the marks to show it, like the letters carved into the oak bark. Too much of anything could get you killed. They've shown us the light, but we're not thrilled. It's foxholes and deathbeds that keep us aligned, and not so misled. We all wanna be great like John F. Kennedy, but it's all in the timing and how it falls into place. They've tried to gun us down like in the motorcade. But we've all grown so numb from all this Novocain. Let's ride like cavaliers, and hang bright like chandeliers. We'll break every bone that they pick, they'll dread every fucking moment. Too much of anything could get you killed. They've shown us the light, but we're not thrilled. It's foxholes and deathbeds that keep us aligned, and not so misled. If misery loves company, then it's clear this bar is full. To be entirely veracious we're all completely miserable. Too much of anything could get you killed. They've shown us the light, but we're not thrilled. It's foxholes and deathbeds that keep us aligned, and not so misled. Carry the torch, burn what's been scorned.
Track Name: Not Until I've Flat Lined
Not until I've flatlined, not until I've tried. Illuminate these demons, take the fury that's inside of my eyes. I wanna be everything that you need right now. If you forgive and forget. We won't relive, won't regret a thing. I'm crushed to say, I'll admit. I'm a wreck. I'm a nervous fool. Oh, I'm cleaning up for you. You're the last thing that I wanna lose. Not until I've flatlined, not until I've tried. Illuminate these demons, take the fury that's inside of my eyes. I wanna be everything that you need right now. Here in this hospital bed, It's a lonely sentiment. And all the time that we've spent, replay it over again. (Don't cast me aside, until I have tried.) Oh, I'm cleaning up for you. You're the last thing that I wanna lose. Oh, you've helped me through and through. When the push comes to shove, I'll confess that it's where I belong. Take this shell that you free me of, there's no need to prolong. Oh, I'm cleaning up for you. You're the last thing that I wanna lose. Oh, you've helped me through and through. Hold me close, I'm too strung out on you. Not until I've flatlined, not until I've tried. Illuminate these demons, take the fury that's inside of my eyes. I wanna be everything that you need right now.
Track Name: Dearly Beloved
Holding onto loved ones lost, we try to reach the surface. Knowing what's been lost is gone as we're drowning in the abyss. The darkest days will bring the rain. To exasperate the winds of change. We all carry anvils of strain tough to handle. The brightest days lie in the wake. If we can hold the barricades. They still linger inside, all of the friends they left behind. I wanna get through the landslide that's outside. It's hard enough buried face down in your hands. Can't relinquish myself to the high tide in hindsight. It's hard enough trying to be a better man. We all, we all know all good things must come to an end. It's in how we defend the time that we've been given. I wanna get through the landslide that's outside. It's hard enough buried face down in your hands. Can't relinquish myself to the high tide in hindsight. It's hard enough trying to be a better man. Holding onto loved ones lost, we try to reach the surface. Knowing what's been lost is gone as we're drowning in the abyss. I wanna get through the landslide that's outside. It's hard enough buried face down in your hands. Can't relinquish myself to the high tide in hindsight. It's hard enough trying to be a better man. I wanna get through the landslide.
Track Name: Fundamentals Of Being Sentimental
Losing my patience. Hard to define how you walk the thin line. Please keep your impressions to yourself for now, I know I'm an embarrassment. We've been through this before, we're just beating a dead horse. Sleep on the cold side of your vacant bed tonight. Commit me straight to memory, kill the lights. Tangled up in a web of your resentment. Body like an hourglass, your heads' full of contentment. Losing your patience. Hard to confide, while I'm just wasting your time. I'll scream until my lungs cave, just to tell you that I'm proud of your accomplishments. I'm the seed that you chewed up. You abandoned me where we grew up. I hope it's as easy as you've made it seem. You've analyzed me, you've criticized me. Now just hammer the nail and crucify me. Sleep on the cold side of your vacant bed tonight. Commit me straight to memory, kill the lights. Tangled up in a web of your resentment. Body like an hourglass, your heads' full of contentment. These are the fundamentals of being sentimental. You set the pace while I just followed your lead.
Track Name: Running Blind
I took the train back to see the South. I can't pretend I'm not concerned with the way words fall out my mouth. I'm just waiting on a verse. Things seem so damn far from reach. When you're living out a dream. We try to live beyond our means. While we're tearing at the seams. They say I'm down to nothing. I tell them come what here may. To me, it feels like something, My hearts' been on display. I've been running blind. Am I everything I'm supposed to be? I've spent so much time taking advantage of what's in front of me. I feel so broken and jaded, I miss the life that I traded. So belligerent, swelling up with indifference. Skimming the pages, I never followed in their footsteps. Glued to this ladder, I can't fucking climb up. And I know I'm hard on myself, but I feel like I deserve it. And I know it's bad for my health, I just thought that it might be worth it. They say I'm down to nothing. I tell them come what here may. To me, it feels like something. My hearts been on display. I've been running blind. Am I everything I'm supposed to be? I've spent so much time taking advantage of what's in front of me. I feel so broken and jaded, I miss the life that I traded. This path that I tread upon is my own paragon. The struggles that I stumble on, are full blown. I'll carry on. I've been running blind. Am I everything I'm supposed to be? I've spent so much time taking advantage of what's in front of me. I feel so broken and jaded. I miss the life that I traded.
Track Name: My Last Heart Attack
Similar to my last heart attack, You were crying me to sleep. Anything to get you off my back, You can hide me six feet deep. When all along the way, You knew that this would fade. When all along the way, You knew just what to say. History repeats itself, Unread apologies on a dusty shelf. Should have kept them for keepsake. All the promises we break. Familiar to my last relapse, We've been grinding down our teeth. Interred burden on a full collapse. Affections change like seasonal wreaths. And all along the way, You knew that this would fade. And all along the way, You knew that I would stay. History repeats itself, Unread apologies on a dusty shelf. Should have kept them for keepsake. All the promises we break. Is this unrequited love or another heavy binge? I'll extradite my gloves. You know the way to make me cringe. History repeats itself, unread apologies on a dusty shelf. Should have kept them for keepsake. All the promises we break. Similar to my last heart attack, you were crying me to sleep.
Track Name: Undertow
This house is becoming an anomaly. A place of self loathing beyond belief. I'm biting down on the hollow point. Bring your cross. Father, come and anoint. Striving to break the chains of silence, my sanctuary's a desert island. Hear me out, hear me now. I've been caught in the undertow. The voids I filled with the spade have come back around to strand me on my own. If this carnage is my garbage, should I attempt to start over? I'm still rolling over. A message ruined from the wreckage, Should I attempt to start over? I'm done rolling over. Hear me out, hear me now. I've been caught in the undertow. The voids I filled with the spade have come back around to strand me on my own. Can't seem to find what I'm looking for. I cannot loosen the vines. I'm sinking to the floor. Hopeless, but not clueless. Careless, but not ruthless. Striving to break the chains of silence. My sanctuary's a desert island. Hear me out, hear me now. I've been caught in the undertow. The voids I filled with the spade have come back around to strand me on my own. Safety, save me from myself.
Track Name: Cyanide Chaser
I hung you up. You bled through the night. Once last chance to put up a fight. Do you feel innocent, now that you've had time to reminisce? The air that you breathe is thicker than mine. It eats you away in a matter of time. These flames will deface you, and I will replace you with someone deserving of I. So I set you on fire in the back of my mind. Cause our love and desire was chased with cyanide. Deceit in disguise that wasn't hard to find. I'm cutting the ties, forming smoke clouds in the skies. The air that you breathe is thicker than mine. It eats you away in a matter of time. These flames will deface you, and I will replace you with someone deserving of I. Suppose I'll see you on the other side. I guess I'll see you in another life. These flames will rise higher, and you will expire. A restless farewell bid to thee. The air that you breathe is thicker than mine. It eats you away in a matter of time. These flames will deface you, and I will replace you with someone deserving of I.
