This twitch in my fingers Love/hate it lingers Sent it direct, but the point must have missed her Gave up and lost, cause of timing and pressure And now I'm gone Lie alone its, all you can do now And hear me drone About the things I cant change And hear me drone on my own What has this come to? I know you don't see me as much you ought to And both wounds are bleeding out Grace me with nothing but patience I'll admit that I hate this if there’s no other way out On the outs with everything The calm and talk you seldom bring
Stifled 02:12
Overseas while you’re back west Sleeping off the restlessness Everything will be fine Just going to be keep my mind on your bed And your bed on my mind I'm so sore from sleeping on the floor I never see your face anymore (Maybe I'll come back around) I'm so sore from sleeping on the floor I want what we had before (You made me come back) Stifled there but you still Walk in place I'm distant now they say I'm Rude of late I pass up sleep as my mind debates The message I put forth Just admit if you're not sure All they'll know is second best But it still brings the restlessness Don't think that it’s fine I lie because this distance is poisons it fucks with my mind I'm so sore Can you give me some more Space to grow what was sewn before I'm so sore Stomach’s on the floor I swear I always wake up before Can't help but dwell on what you're doing I'm much too slow for the pace that you're moving A piece of us will stay unmoving But how's it ever going to feel the same again?
Small Talk 02:43
Of all the roads I took the wounded way Of all the words That you chose to say There were only 3 that held any weight The rest was all just small talk Lust, I hate it I guess it’s what you make it Now it’s said with past tense For the sake of moving past this Breaking in to me Tell it how you think it’s going to be I'll bite back with broken teeth So helpless I can't help this I sense Your purpose So tense inside yet not on the surface And if this is worth it Then why is there still small talk? Where is my patience I cannot erase this It lives inside me and it will die with me This gap between us grows on The last thing I want to do is move on
Crushing you inside of my grip again You're breathing in Pushing this aside till when? Ignoring that pain Felt you creep inside of my head again It all depends on where I am and who I'm there with It’s rough when we're both square one With so much undone, who lost and who won? All rain, no sun Don't want to have to speak to anyone Said this will kill if you let it Somehow I forget I should be asleep I shouldn't be upset Playing the victim While you're still here Blaming the future on the things I fear Waking up to gloom and routine again You're breathing in That air that dries your lungs But you kept our trust And said do what you must to be happy And I left with a debt that called me Out quick to be honest with it all So now I just sing about missing this and missing that but what will it really bring? Just a special circumstance Where in lies the worst part that I can't accept Coming up on Fall are there things we haven't spoke on yet? Said you won't regret But you and I are one in the same Don't want to have to feel numb I don't want this undone Don't want to have to speak to anyone
Right Here 02:35
Do you see good intent When you read me You're trying to test me You don't get my mindset You only see the where and the when Is that how your time’s spent Anticipate then It’s gone again Its appeal is the lust for the things you conceal Roll on like the spoke in your wheel Until it breaks and you feel how I feel All I really want is to stay right here right now There's so much more to talk about The mind you broke and the price that it costs me now When I was gone I slept by myself and woke up alone It feels like a fracture A split in the bone No more safe time For us to be home Leaving this again and when You're in their backyards, You're not here you can't tie my seams So pick out those glass shards They don't belong in your feet Head on the wall tell me why I feel so small When I don't even care at al
Empty Space 02:29
All that I know Is your space is empty It’s buried below The stress and the envy All the places I go It still hasn't left me I hated it then and now it consumes me I dwell on it nightly Tread swiftly and lightly Make up the lost ground And see what you don't see All questions aside I asked and you lied And now my hands are tied All I can show Is absence from your life That I can't control It’s all that I get right Keep paying the toll I know that it seems like I'm always upset
The Glass 02:47
Lead you so far down I could tell you'd never been Told me that time's near And how it will change everything I'm not so open like the window you are The glass just reflects the scar Told me that you had to leave But how the fuck does that change anything? Your glare is the faintest No brightness to show I made the best of what I thought was impossible You were the spade I used To dig this hole Blistered my skin to the bone Swear all the pain’s done No trace or tremor here Or am I still numb? Have I been this whole year? So let me bite down, feel the clench in my teeth Till I come around then relapse and repeat And now you're gone.
All Wrong 03:02
I doubted the way that the space could be filled for so long I was so Headstrong that maybe just maybe I was dead wrong Tried to see if I could speak about it And now I don't know how to live without it right in the dent of my chest Feeding off your mind cause you know best And craving the days with you and your bed that wait back west It’s never enough, no it’s never enough, no it’s never enough Its no fun to play this song So I'm done You said I got it all wrong But, I'm sure everything we did before Doesn't really matter anymore Its no fun to play this song So I'm done I know I got it all wrong So I’m sure everything I did before Woke up covered in the sweat again Worry and fog the lens No solace I miss the fuck out of all my friends I think back to sleeping on the back bench Wish I'd let the absence tell them all of the things that I can't And now its all just patience My father told me don't pass this up and take all the luck you can get It’s never enough Caught you leaving You were high in the ceiling On your own Dodge your demons Take your reasons With you when you go
Bad Luck 02:21
I try to rise and fall with sun But lately, it doesn't make any sense to me Walking by myself trap the silence in the hall And I can feel the pressure in my head I'm the book you always opened but you never read. Beside the box you call your bed It’s your fault I'd say I let this blind me Forlorn in sullen head Suffer your ill intent Watch your mind ignore Just like all those times before That’s the way it is And I won't write you back anymore There’s better faces To fill all the spaces Left by the masks you wore Maybe that’s the reason I was never enough Cause all I do is chuck it up to bad luck Unfinished business has me stuck Bad luck
Face Value 02:52
I let the furnace of my anger Heat where you lay It never burned you, it just kept the cold at bay Write it over and over again The same chords the same end How many times did I offend? Is it so hard to think like we used to? It’s nothing I can't prove To my stubborn self I can't control you Selfish if I do All of the plans that you made never included me You play roles in my fate Struggle and fight to relate There’s nothing here to sedate So I wait And write it over and over again The same chords the same end With age comes time You don't need me to remind You just read all of this line by line
Framework 03:08
I still think on you, the place, the time And all the solitude There’s nothing I hate more than pushing you away with my fucked up attitude I've been counting paces since the last time we touched faces It’s a lot like trading spaces Where I'm the dormant one and you're away How'd this happen? Found your way in So distracting Splitting me in half again Can't ever sever the ties I made The knots are strong The framework's laid No matter how many things I save The tangible will always be what I crave But I've been resting cases And writing just to erase this It used to just seem so basic When I knew every single word to say Thought I'd burn the seams if they frayed Thought I'd prove the point that I made However long you're gone I will wait I will wait
