Track Name: Sip
Can you feel my hands shake?
I can't put this pen to the page
It still feels like I've been clawing at the last remnants of what I'm trying to crawl out from, change the course of what I'll become
I'll claw my way out
I'll crawl out
Track Name: Did I Look Okay Back There?
My feelings left unattended do you know what's wrong?
I know that nothing can mend this, it's been too long
Since my hands didn't shake, since my voice didn't break
I can't be bothered, I'll never wonder
I don't ask a lot, but I'm asking you this much, please don't let me fall
My feet won't carry me further then where I am
My shoulders break under your guilt is this what you want?
Don't try to act like you're just a victim
Your words are spiteful, you only look within
Down at the bottom where I rot, my minds in a haze
I'll never lift my head up again
Track Name: Bloom
I've been trying to forget for days
Pacing around and trying to count the ways
I let your spite poison what I hold closest
You leave your shit around wherever you go
All of your allies quickly turn to foes
and now its best that you be on your way
May everything bloom in your absence
Think of us just in past tense
Consider it a better ending
Your clouds follow me and rain everyday
They only serve to just get in the way
and flood my mind with thoughts of clearer skies
May everything bloom in your absence
It's not enough for you to just go away
I'm counting down the days until the sunshine
Are you out there picking at the petals of last summer's garden?
Are you there digging through the compost in hopes of flowers?
Track Name: Movie Theatre Theft
You wonder what it's like to be on your own
Now you pay for it
You conjure up these thoughts and you call it home
I wish that it were here
Hold your head up for the very last time
You're never going to change your mind
Count the seconds while you're taking your time
Take your bottle, leave us all behind
You long for the days when your visions blurred
Now you're blind at heart
You offer up your lies as a sign of guilt
Why can't you admit you made this wrong?
You used your shaking hands to build a fence that I sit on
It feels like I'm not alive
It feels like I'm wasting time
Track Name: Face To Face
I wish that you were here
I wish you'd understand
I can't crawl out of what I am now
I can only just depend
All of these phases and places we used to know
Don't make me feel a thing
I need some time to think
Sort out what's in my head
I can't tell you what I deserve now
I can only plead and beg
Please don't forget what it meant when I asked you to stay
I'll never ask again
I wish you well
I'm trying to crawl out but these weights are tied to my feet
I'm trying my best but I can't admit what's wrong with me
I feel I'm destined to repeat
Track Name: Where's The Fire?
Bring up another flaw I have and can't change now
Beat it in my head until I break down
Say "you're nothing"
Say "Your everything I hate"
I'm just stuck and losing my place
Can't erase my mistakes and I'm sorry
I've spent too much time with my head in my hands
Tears seeping through the floor
Grow up and learn from it
What a waste, I can't explain where my heads at these days
Count the waves, I'm up then down, am I just sinking?
I will learn from this
Track Name: Disregard
I meant every word that made you feel valuable
I wish I could take the hurtful words away
I have to go but I want to take you with me
Stay all night and we'll drive past the lights that lit up
When we came to life
So selfishly assured that I'd always be by your side
But there I go again walking out the door
Track Name: Executive
I really wanted to take these steps but I stumble down to the dirt below
I wish that I could be all I can but I'm humbled
It's not as easy when your hearts in the right place
My minds free and clear now
Sick of dwelling on all the things that I can't change
They take me with them
Down, everybody knows it's where we go when our luck runs out
Down, in the undertow, hide away until the sun comes up
Picked up right at the last second and I'm thankful for any chance I get
To prove I'm not a waste of time that I'm thoughtful
It's always easy when your hearts in the wrong place
My minds gone and I'm spinning out
Sick of gripping to things that make me feel this way
They only lead me...
I couldn't stand you thinking that of me
I couldn't stand the thought of you hating me
I can't argue this is what I've earned
I'll hide away until the sun goes....
Track Name: Life and Times
Go throw up your hands and tell another untrue version of events
There's no calming you down in your world
Life moves on and it's clear that you're committed to sitting still
I'm just left hoping you don't forget what got us here
Now it's all played out, the story's ending now
You're letting the truth take hold of you
It's overdue, its time to see this through
It's over and done now walk away
You can't get your lies straight despite shilling the same story still
I'm just too cold to admit that this still hurts me too
I'll never forgive you, despite trying to still understand
Why can't you ungrip your hands and keep what we have here?
All that I ask is that you don't relinquish me as your son and drown in your anger
Mom don't forget this Movie Theatre Theft has ripped me to shreds in this empty apartment, I don't want to stumble.
