Track Name: ...And I'm Off
Knees are weak
collapse face first
millipedes in the sheets
Take a better look at me
Twitching violently
shaking like a leaf
always wishing I could leave

but what happens when I've left everything
is there anyone or is there anything
still praying for me

I don't want to speak
I might ruin the moment
These lips taste sweet
No hoping left unspoken
But the words are not a language that is taught
and I do not use them a lot so lately I've been choking
'Cause I'd leave but I've been caught up in the motions
going through them all but now they've got me slowing
Every day they see me growing
Like I was planted from a seed
with no bark and no bite I'm no tree
just an individual spouting off philosophies
in all of these hypotheses I haven't made discoveries
still tripping over thoughts built on kings and queens
what it might be like if I had been born as royalty
I question that a lot, how much of my identity
would be changed or just forgotten with a different family
it's honestly a struggle trying to build my ideology
so many of my years were based upon theology
but all of these questions that I've had keep blocking me
like a wall around my thoughts that I can never leave

but what happens when, I've left everything
is there anyone, or is there anything
still praying for me
Track Name: Height
There's times I HATE myself when I'm alone

I watch you watch me slip
deeper into my dreams again
I still feel the heat from your lips
the tiny buzz from your fingertips

There's times I hate myself when I'm alone
I sit at home, a broken phone for all my friendships on my own
or so I'm told by the tired voice that sounds so old
ringing in my ears as I sit shaking in the cold (freezing)
I'm frozen, I do my best to let it go
a thought around my throat that leaves me choking
chosen paths that left me broken
I analyze the mess I've made of my disguise
staring up at starry skies I say goodbye and leave the home behind (goodbye)
I find my heaven glaring at me from your eyes
Your irises reveal the galaxy of stars inside
So hold my hand and fly me high (So hold my hand and fly me high)
In our neverland we will never die

I watch you watch me slip
deeper into my dreams again
I still feel the heat from your lips
the tiny buzz from your fingertips
pressed against my skin
your love is crashing
a waterfall collapsing

Fly me low above the sea (So hold my hand and fly me high)
trace your fingertips and laugh along with me
reality is far behind, we dance aloud outside the lines
the crowded mind of yours and mine
forgotten now with better times
hold the moon reflecting in the night
for too soon the tides will wash away and burn our eyes with light
resting on the riverbank horizon lines are getting bright
amazing all the same the day can't whet my appetite
we expedite the hours all despite the higher powers
telling us our April showers lied about the flowers
(So hold my hand and fly me high)

there's times I hate myself when I'm alone
you pull me from the throne of my foolishness and woe
composed of stone reminding me of how our hearts have grown
we'll forge the flowers on our own
Track Name: Wet Asphalt
I still remember being young
We rode our bikes around our town
We were out chasing the sun
And the moon after it went down
Sat atop a train car
Amazed seemingly so far
A changing of perspective
Like we're standing on the stars
From Dunmore to Dunmore Road
I've come so far but I'm still so close
Standing laughing with my friends
I still can see my home
The summer went by and then I moved away
Not too far from here but enough to make it change
I sat inside my room and I loved it when it rained
And now I snap back to raindrops and wiper blades

Sliding on the wet asphalt

All of these memories
Eventually come back to me
Sometimes it takes something special to remind me
I don't want to have to leave it all behind me
These brake lights are blinding
Everything is in the timing
Someone screaming up behind me
But we catch a little traction thankfully avoid catastrophe
Starting up without sliding and I continue driving
Track Name: Trapdoors
I started at the bottom
and found out that it was rotten
Now I'm laying down
in the tomb of the forgotten
Choking on the dust
spraying blood from all the coughing
It doesn't take much
for me to visualize my coffin
I don't want death
I just want an escape
So sick of this labyrinth
I'm running in my brain
Every thought I have
Already sounds the same
As the one I had before
and it's driving me insane
How many circles
can I run before I'm worn
down to the bone
and all my clothes torn
We all run a race
ever since we were born
the demons in our hearts
rising up as angry hordes
To my left a platoon of angry beasts
on my right a flock of vultures waiting for the feast
I crawl across the room I've never felt so weak
It all begins with the piercing from a beak
I still see the light
but everything is wrong
down here I fear
I can't last long
A whisper in my ear
means the fall of the dawn

I'm gone

I started at the bottom
and found out that it was rotten
Now I'm laying down
in the tomb of the forgotten
Choking on the dust
spraying blood from all the coughing
It doesn't take much
for me to visualize my coffin
I don't want death
I just want an escape
I know I need rest
It's been wearing on my brain
My heart in my chest
Is beating all the same
If I'm out of breath
At least I've escaped
Track Name: Castle Of The Elements
Around the infinite
I see the worst in it
I lost everything again
I lost you here

Drowning in a deep pit
Can't see the end of it
won't die before I see the light
I'm not giving up tonight
I'm not giving up on you

In the castle of the elements
I'm never giving up on you
I'm never losing you again
Track Name: side|Time
Time is never on my side
Try to put myself together come out undefined
Only twenty four hours, gotta rest my eyes
Can't stay up forever no matter how I try
The sleep is like carrion that's tearing at my eye
So much to do so I plan it all inside
Ideas like ores I slowly will refine
But all this time has them building on my mind

Time is never on my side

What do I do when i have to get to sleep
I can only accomplish so much in my dreams
Raven's satisfy their cravings ripping at my seams
twenty four hours feels much shorter than it seemed
ten years ago took the wheel and I careened
around the curves of life like a screaming banshee
grinning ear to ear slicing life up with my teeth
no fear I was ravenous and ate all that I could see
Somewhere I switched a gear I'm driving slowly
After all these years I thought maybe I'd be blowing
Past my expectations but apparently I'm growing
into another dreamer pinned by time inside sleep

Time is never on my side

Time
Track Name: Fool
I am your fool
You make me lie

see i just want to know
if all the things in my brain
are all about to blow
if everything i ever knew
is finally coming true
it means the beasts of the earth
are being born anew
but i don't have a plan
and I don't understand
cause I don't have a plan
so I don't understand
so don't you
tell me what you want to do
I want to find a place for you
away where we can be free
I want to find a place for you
I want to tell you everything
I want to find a place for you
but I'm underneath your feet

Don't say goodbye
I don't want to cross that line

It's in those dark eyes
disguised behind hypnotized crimes
I realize the times I've denied
the ties to my self and my life
I can't hide the hit to my pride
I could cry out for help but I
try to find my own line
I want to live a life I know is mine
the lioness bares her smile
it's welcoming for a while
mild belies the wild style
of error before trial
guilty of denial
riled up by the maniacal child
our system is defiled and while
I'm on trial I'm swallowing bile
I never wanted to be on file
I wanted to be clean as blue skies
breathe the air as time flies by
bye to my better times
I've been tangled in a web of lies
I never meant to make her cry
the tears in her eyes make me want to hide
I saw her broken heart and I died
I wonder what they might find
of my broken life when I say goodbye

Don't say goodbye
I don't want to cross that line
