First scene when winter ends I get to thinking how everything stands still if you let it and how ever long you wait how ever long you want to wait it only holds you back watch the sun go down, watch it come back up all the time we waste is it ever enough to convince us that maybe theres something wrong maybe it's me Back to the city where there's a buzz and a hum that stays stuck inside my head that never leave's unless I leave and I don't want it to it's a comforting sound that helps me sleep at night all the signs in the road read head north and don't come back i've been trying to figure this out i've been trying to kill off this doubt it comes in waves. No hope Listen, Help Me Hold it together Again, Realize Nothing is easy Unless we find, a reason behind our own dreaming I keep waking up feeling the same way like nothing else is going to change cause it's been so long and I try so hard any chance I get But the answers are out there hiding in the silence and it's our job to find them like some pyramid scheme, retrace my dreams keep waiting for my sigh of relief It's just the coming of age I keep telling my self it's only temporary this void feeling the one weighs me down makes me think less of myself but I keep looking up hoping for better days hoping for better things when spring comes I can pretend what I did before I won't do again
There's a doubt there's a cold and broke home it's wasting your time There's a feeling eating you up on the inside it's asking you to leave everything you've got we get caught up in the details Tomorrow in the back of my mind Tomorrow in the end it will all work Tomorrow this modern life has got me feeling otherwise In the city all the leaves are changing color but I just stay the same why are we not changing with them You used to stay you wanted an exit You wanted to find help Restore your health but conflict of interest led you far away from it And all I know is that you're so uncertain and all I know is that I'm just as lost as you are I think were all just lost as you are I think were all just lost as I think were all just lost as you are Tomorrow in the back of my mind Tomorrow in the end it will all work out Tomorrow I watch and wait for things to change back I watch and wait to find out what it is that keeps us from leaving here
Again the same frame of light that led me in that made me think otherwise it's gone Every chance I get to spark a memory a match is lit to a wick so I can see the past and remember how it ends remember how it begins I was only asking questions I put my candle to the wind and it blew out It must of been the smoke it must of been me that saw a change in the room that saw a shift in your mood that saw potential and growth in all the places you don't we'll film a brand new scene and play the usual scheme we'll keep on acting it out until we get it right and again we'll learn from our mistakes just do what it takes keep moving forward to make the days a little brighter when nothing else is I ran as fast as I could back to where I came from found a photo of you and me an image and memory captured one where were both still smiling it was daytime when the frame caught the light and everything changed it must of been me.
Hard Season 02:11
The wind is colder this time of year take a deep breath, make things easier put your attention in one location incompatible situations Leave or hide time after time what is it that you find yourself to be so uncertain of Raise your voice let it resonate to and through the walls don't be afraid I learned my lesson from life nothing is as vast and far aways as it seems and time is always spinning around Hold your head even when things don't seem right don't be afraid I learned my lesson from life Abandon all things not deemed worthy of your time I changed my mind I've never felt more alive I guess I was tired of wasting time for no good reason I guess I was trying to waste my time for no good reason I suppose I just gave up on life for no good reason I suppose I just gave up on life
Monument 02:18
A frequent feeling bring it back now hold it together firmly I'm not losing any sleep bad weather or not to the top of the mountain where you can see everything a little more clear Nothing feels worse than failure I should have known I should have moved I should have been brave Lack of fear won't save me now from anything at all This room sits still and stays so quiet like the stairs up to your old apartment filled with superstition for your addictions don't forget your cigarettes on the way out I'm still learning how to cope with tragedy I'm still learning how to fight off all these feelings I'm still learning what you have isn't always yours to keep I know now what I didn't know before I know now what I didn't before
Day Dream 02:08
Woke up from a dream that lead me to believe there's more on this earth than anything you see Sing it again Sing it back to me we're all just waiting on relief cause yesterday keeps haunting me and i'm just hoping tomorrow is better than today and i'm just waiting for the next move to make You're always so close to where you want to be
Captain this whole ship is sinking right down to the bottom where all the forces on earth to heavy to lift too swift to sway in a different direction and if i could i'd take back time reclaim a love, end my stories with light but the clouds and the thunder bring rain and the rain brings darkness and grey and the entire time I was searching for a sign but the weather never changed and these problems keep me up late to fear a future that stays the same Captain this whole ship is sinking right down to the bottom I tried my best to let go I tried my best
June 02:30
First wave, crashing in Contemplate my beliefs it's just these memories I wish I could get out of my head I'll dwell on things I can't ever change I never had a clear view on them anyways These memories He's twenty three just like me the mother cried so hard at the funeral home picking a casket for her son she didn't think it would come in her lifetime but it did again again again What makes you really hurt What makes you do the things you do that hurt everyone else it leaves another mark that won't ever watch off that won't ever disappear Feeling discontent that no one knew you had that no one could fix it whispers in the wind Goodbye Every chance I get i'll find another way to keep things off my mind He meant, he felt it, the needle pushed deep in his skin as deep as it goes it haunts as long as I wait for things to change it never cleans up the same these broken dreams this broken life it'll never be fixed it'll never be
Grand Scheme 02:50
How do you cope with all that's lost do you put up walls just like me? I have goals and aspirations leading me to better places away from here i'm hardly waiting around for any options settle in your new apartment by the beach where you're suppose to be happy the smell of smoke on your old clothes your flannel is torn and faded but you like the way they made it you're hardly waiting around for options but I am calm about it all Try to keep my composure till this storm blows over and over It's still hard to say I get all of my traits from you It's still hard to say I get all of my traits from you I get all of my traits from you
I had a feeling than lost it a sense of meaning exhausted my eyes are tired from trying to find an answer anywhere and I keep caring less and less and I keep thinking less and less about the future and purpose reason is I am frequently alone I am frequently passing by all the places I visit always wondering why there's no light on in your room there's no place to feel warm and all these cold walls only cause me harm It's only freezing and it is painful It's only freezing I just want to have comfort in the things that I do I just want to know more of me and you I just want to see the end and where everything goes Will I ever find out does anybody know? I keep losing faith in everything I keep dreaming of a place I'd much rather be and when the sunsets all I fear is regret so I am cautious to make any decisions I take careful steps in and around the house Where everything stays quiet nothing moves and I look out the window hoping for a sign to change my mind I'm so full of doubt these days
