1.
wrong celebration a doom's vacation a wave of doubt plays telling me that i don't deserve the stars that you sew in my darkest moods it's a bad thing to become beg to let go you can but you won't the birth of letting go a vision sings to me frees a brief bereave touches me on the arm sentimentally shows a dream I never outgrow like i'm losing you pensive but patient a broken station heavy on my health apprehensive of myself what if it’s the best I’ll ever do?
2.
throwing stones in words to you she backs against the afternoon eyes blur across a dark bridge thoughts melt into a windy summer let the emptiness hold me feeling so unholy if I get in control of me this could be my destiny kicking dirt across the sky majesty has a wandering eye crayon hearts explode in it's shadow paralysis in a broken structure
3.
Traps 04:12
you're not as small as you think you are transplant your secret home it takes the guts to accelerate a dream sequence to explode if someone tells you what to do, be aware and then they try to steal the things that you have if someone tells you where to go, it's a trap I'm not as dumb as you think I am the better part of a one-track hold the voice inside, yeah I know it's right but man I wish it'd leave alone
4.
Care Less 04:50
it could blow your mind sometime you can say it's just another crime of mine but it could blow your mind and you can call it divine or another waste of time careless cursin' like you're a different person some things are hard to undo the hapless treason is you're changin' like a season and winter is taking hold it could blow your mind sometime you can say it's just another crime of mine but it could blow your mind and you can call it divine or another waste of time it's a simple circumstance no need for the romance the virile verses will do unto you no reason needed as crimson bleeds in i've got my reasons for the lack thereof too it is just another part of you
5.
Silver Wires 02:56
in silver wires the night was crossed painted and displayed in shattered glass from every side the doors were sealed sealed in so nothing can break through trying to make the earth new but they've got wires at your neck forces will forsake you if you don't play the game, too they've got wires at your neck from battered eyes the memory sells a small belief as no one moves now eyes are closed swimming far back
6.
I know why you sleep by yourself reflecting hard behind the waves at night too much time to wonder why theres no return to where the hearts you break have razor burn on parts you kissed tiny scratches where weapons missed hallucinations have seen the fist I don't know where to help you all alone and it's making you mad because everyone wants someone so bad you're trying to crush your dreams in my hand breaking it down like rocks into sand your chemicals have misfired synapses that need rewired you’re holding up your heavy heart you ain’t whole, you’re just a part a fraction of a human being I know you’re cut, but you don’t bleed tear worlds apart to blow off steam I don’t know how to help you you're trying to crush your dreams in my hand breaking it down like rocks into sand all alone and it's making you mad because everyone wants someone so bad
7.
risky call chicago light bends as you fall from any truth in one cycle as you breathe inside I met you holding my next love had to see what I'm made of imagine a soul torn perfectly in two it takes one sad day to open myself and share parts with you I met you holding my next love had to see what I'm made of a situational mind-fuck you had a girl's face
8.
(Scott) spinning fire is enveloping you old hands are developing, too dying off with a sound thats alive praying hard to an invisible mind (Amy) they turned back and left it blue like this world isn't good enough for you you'll find your own way through or turn back, leave it blue (Scott) scratching secrets into the walls spreading blankets where I should fall I believe in the power to call for your help if I've helped you at all we will break if we don't bend (Amy) when it's the, when it's the end how can you, how can you pretend? we know just where you've been and it is no god send we will break if we don't bend
