Track Name: Critical
I’ve always wanted what I can’t have
and I’ve been making it a note to feel what’s left to feel
and put my shoulder to the wheel
Everything about me used to have a mind of it’s own
I’ve got what’s left of me, some positivity
and no more waiting on a dial tone
because I’ve loved and lost a cause
and that’s enough to never let you forget me

We’ve been gone for too long to see this happen again
Then again, you’re too gone to say that’s not what you meant
You’re crying, I’m not trying
I won’t let this life get so critical

Remember the time you asked me to let go?
Where did you want me to begin?
Take a stand
You know you haven’t got what you came for
and recently, my counter seems to be the place to be at night
You were right, I must be wrong for wanting you to know
I let go of the old
and you don’t deserve to see where it leads me to be
and doesn’t that make you question why we were here in the first place?

We’ve been gone for too long to see this happen again
Then again, you’re too gone to say that’s not what you meant
You’re crying, I’m not trying
I won’t let this life get so critical

I’m like a boy lost in a city
not wanting to be found
Everything is a sight to see until you come back around
I’m like a boy lost in a city
not wanting to be found
Everything is a site to see until you come back around

We’ve been gone for too long to see this happen again
Then again, you’re too gone to say that’s not what you meant
You’re crying, I’m not trying
I won’t let this life get so critical
Track Name: We Are The Brave
How many times do you say that you're sorry
And that you think I'm up to no good?
You know I've said it before I'm not a monster
I'm just misunderstood
I'd like to take this time to cross my eyes to the reflection of you
Doing the same old thing
Wearing the same old ring
To see my point of view

Well these days are only getting longer
When everyday we're only getting stronger

How many times do you say that I'm lying to you?
Well let's be honest, baby, you have too.
I'm not ashamed to be in your way.
I'm headstrong, beyond any level you see me on
And I'm here to stay

Well these days are only getting longer
When everyday we're only getting stronger

What are you waiting for?
You knew before that we would
Throw it all away, throw it all away
(Throw it all away, throw it all away)
[x2]

Because affections held me to the ground
So I'll hold my breath and never make a sound
I'll never make a sound
(We are the brave, don't try your luck here girl no not today)
We are the brave (we are the brave)
Don't try your luck here girl no not today

We are the brave
Don't try your luck here girl no not today

What are you waiting for?
You knew before that we would
Throw it all away, throw it all away
(Throw it all away, throw it all away)
[x2]

Because affections held me to the ground
So I'll hold my breath and never make a sound
(Throw it all away, throw it all away)

Yeah
Track Name: Remedy
We played through the scenes
Called it a remedy
You can take care of me
But you know nothing about me

You started talking about
How lately the weather compliments my mood
Cause when the sun doesn't shine
And it rains in my mind
Like I got nothing left to prove
Baby it's difficult
To call you out on being cynical
Maybe you're beautiful
That doesn't mean I'll stay amused
So I'm just saying...

We played through the scenes
Called it a remedy
You can take care of me
But you know, I know

We played through the scenes
Called it a remedy
You can take care of me
But you know nothing about me

I started thinking about
Your smile that you buried in my pillow
But the present disaster
Made you choke on your laughter
Over something I don't know
(GO!)
When did I do something wrong
Besides stay up way too late
To write these songs
So I'm just saying
while you're still waiting...

We played through the scenes
Called it a remedy
You can take care of me
But you know, I know

We played through the scenes
Called it a remedy
You can take care of me
But you know nothing about me

I've got no time
(to make it seem like I've been trying)
I've got no time
(For staying true)
I've got no time
(to make it seem like I've been trying)
I've got no time
(For staying true)
Well I've got no time

We played through the scenes
Called it a remedy
You can take care of me
But you know, I know

We played through the scenes
Called it a remedy
You can take care of me
But you know, I know
