Track Name: Elevated
Pulled aside as if I was the wrong one, you said it all and you made me the lost one. Elevated by your greatest mistake, now I'm all alone. I bet you couldn't tell that I felt the same way, struggling just to get to the next day. I'm not force fed lies while I'm by your side. Shaking your head doesn't change this. Preparing myself for a train wreck, I can't be saved. So tell me why can't you see this is where you need to be? You know, it's taken it's toll on me, but I don't feel invisible. Tell me why can't you see this is where you need to be? You know, it's taken it's toll on me, so I'll hope for a miracle. Yeah, I'll hope for a miracle. Holidays tend to make me feel whole again. Rainy days make me feel like the dream is dead. I can show you what it's like to be down when you're all alone. I'm quite aligned to your design. What's mine is yours, and that's just fine. I'm finally acquiring the state of mind that everything is gonna be alright. Shaking your head doesn't change this. Preparing myself for a train wreck, I can't be saved. So tell me why can't you see this is where you need to be? You know, it's taken it's toll on me, but I don't feel invisible. Tell me why can't you see this is where you need to be? You know, it's taken it's toll on me, so I'll hope for a miracle. Yeah, I'll hope for a miracle. And if you want to be free, I can't be the one to make you believe. You've still got this promise to keep. Step back and wash away the reckless intentions. They're leaving me breathless. Find a way to stay in your skin. So tell me why can't you see this is where you need to be? You know, it's taken it's toll on me, but I don't feel invisible. Tell me why can't you see this is where you need to be? You know, it's taken it's toll on me, so I'll hope for a miracle. Yeah, I'll hope for a miracle.
Track Name: Deadly Conversation
We’re indifferent to this deadly conversation
I know you know we both know that it's...

I wonder if you think I'm still right there
When you make up your mind
Slower than the changing of the seasons
Wouldn't you know I've come to terms?
That you wouldn't even care if I choked up and stopped my breathing

This isn't something more than life
I hope my calender breaks tonight
Before the morning comes
I hope you know that
We’re indifferent to this deadly conversation
I know you know we both know that it's wrong
To stay outside
Like ships in the night
I know you know we both know that it's wrong
So carry on

I wonder if you think I’m wasting time
I bet you got it all figured out
But must we try to break the ice
Beneath this heart of mine

I was perfectly lonely
I want you to show me
How you'd ever change my mind
When I was the same kid?

This isn't something more than life
I hope my calender breaks tonight
Before the morning comes
I hope you know that
We’re indifferent to this deadly conversation
I know you know we both know that it's wrong
To stay outside
Like ships in the night
I know you know we both know that it's wrong
So carry on

So don't you ever say my name
When it comes to who keeps you sane
I know that you're already gone

Cause when reality sets in place
You’ll be showing the world your second face
And we can carry on
I hope you know

We’re indifferent to this deadly conversation
I know you know we both know that it's wrong
To stay outside
Like ships in the night
I know you know we both know that it's wrong

This isn't something more than life
I hope my calendar breaks tonight
Before the morning comes
Before the morning comes
Track Name: Hard to Please
You've got a plan inside a deep breath,
but it always comes out the same.
I never said there'd be a last chance.
Looks like I'm leaving the fast lane.

I've been told to find The Finer Things,
but you know that won't make sense to me.
You followed your past mistakes.
Whether you bend or break,
I still wait for you to cope.

But you ignored
the call 'cause you grew up.
You'll be thinking all
our memories have made you hard to please now.

Maybe I'm a bad person.
Maybe I don't wanna walk before I crawl.
It only matters if it's worth it,
so does it even matter at all?

Maybe I'm a bad person.
Maybe I don't wanna walk before I crawl.
It only matters if it's worth it.
I think I'm just afraid to fall.

But you ignored
the call 'cause you grew up.
You'll be thinking all
our memories have made you hard to please now.

Take what's left, make it your last request.
I think it's obvious we'll both escape the selfishness
before I'm gone.

I'm turning pages in a place that I know.
You've got your wages, but you've got nothing to show.
I keep turning pages in a place that I know.

It only matters if it's worth it.
I think I'm just afraid to fall.

Maybe I'm a bad person.
Maybe I don't wanna walk before I crawl.
It only matters if it's worth it,
so does it even matter at all?
Track Name: Simple Existence
i'm in a wasteland, but nevertheless
I can try to see this clearly
And I can say that
The day that we met
I just had to have you near me

I fell asleep in a city that doesn't
Thought I was special but you know I wasn't
It's just hard to believe that I won't be
Held responsible, for the things that you now know

I'm coming for you
I'm coming to make sure everything I heard is true
What's it like to be the one who waited
Long enough to see the day that I could feel again
I'm coming for you
I'm coming for you and your simple existence

Let's re-arrange this
When everything falls, I can't make out all the signals
But it's strange that
The distance is how we keep it so original

I fell asleep in a city that doesn't
Thought I was special but you know I wasn't
It's just hard to believe that I won't be
Held responsible, for the things that you now know

I'm coming for you
I'm coming to make sure everything I heard is true
What's it like to be the one who waited
Long enough to see the day that I could feel again
I'm coming for you
I'm coming for you and your simple existence

Hearing all the words you kept inside your head
When the struggle came to construct these lies instead
No telling you where this will go
But as long as you know

You're responsible, for the things that you now know

I'm coming for you (oh, oh, oh, oh)
I'm coming to make sure everything I heard is true (you know it's true)
What's it like to be the one who waited
Long enough to see the day that I could feel again (I could feel again)
I'm coming for you
I'm coming for you and your simple existence
Track Name: Easy Enough
You've got me thinking about it. Don't know my way around it. Got me wishing I could say the things I don't. See, I was traveling; the mess that we were in could only make me wanna stay out on the road. But when the trust falls, missed phone calls, long live the problem child. But I think I'll stay a while. Now I don't think I'll ever feel like this again. I'll never feel. We're suspended in time from the likes of you, but I'm wiling to prove you've got more fight left in you. We're suspended in time from the likes of you. Yeah, it's true. So you can take it from me, I just wanna be more than a memory. Impeccability is what you said to me. See, I was busy trying to figure out what it is that you were talking about. Don't think I'll ever feel like this again. I'll never feel. We're suspended in time from the likes of you, but I'm willing to prove you've got more fight left in you. We're suspended in time from the likes of you. Yeah, it's true. So you can take it from me, I just wanna be more than a memory. It's hard enough for me to say this. Easy Enough when you're the faceless. It's impersonal. I just thought you should know.
Track Name: Leave You In The Dark
It’s all the same I’d say you’re losing me again.
If truth be told I blame the monsters in your heard. You’ll blame me when you turn off the lights and and try to say that you can’t sleep. And it goes to show how you make your way into my dreams again. And the less we know the more we break right apart so we’ll raise the stakes and show them that we’re different it’s all the same. I've seen this way too many times. I’d leave you in the dark. It comes as no surprise. But thats if I wanted to and we both know that I’m not over you and i know I don’t say it but I love you too and it’s starting to make sense. And it goes to show how you make your way into my dreams again the less we know the more we break right apart so we’ll raise the stakes and show them that we’re different. I thought I told you once we’ve got it all mapped out and I’m gonna be the better man. And that’s a start to this. I thought I told you once we’ve got it all mapped out I’m gonna be a better man and though it’s been said it’s finally starting to make sense.
Track Name: If I'm Lucky
Hello Sunshine, Or what’s your name today? Well you look so graceful but I’m not faithful. Do you really wanna be with me? Hello Summer, or should I say goodbye? Well it’s been so long but i’m still thinking if it’s worth another try.Well I’ve got a lot to talk about if you still wanna listen or if you even care. I’m just trying to find my place in this world and I know it’s not so right to feel t his way about a girl but if you stay or if i go, I’m right there with you but you know that I’m looking for more than a pretty smile and if i’m luck you can stay for a while but if you stay or if you go I’m just hanging on again. Hello Stranger we haven’t had a past but now i’ve learned so much so much times gone by so fast. Hello Beautiful It’s so obvious that you’re hearing every word I say. You know that i’ve got a lot to talk about if you wanna listen or if you even care. I’m just trying to find my place in the world and I know it’s not so right to feel this way a bout a girl but if you stay or if you go. I’m right there with you but you know that i’m looking for more than a pretty smile and i’f i’m lucky you can stay for a while but if you stay or if you go.
