Track Name: Introduction
Nice to meet you
I will be loving you in time
I’ll give you window
You give me wall to hide behind
And I don’t mean to hold your hands in the sink
I was only trying to wash out the power
Nice to meet you
I will be losing you in time.
Track Name: Sick Feeling
I’ve got a feeling
But I don’t know if it’s real
You’re keeping secret
I’ll be afraid to reveal
My burning question
Now is frozen in time
Over and over in my mind
We eat for free but I hate to feel full
You’re either lying or you’re leaving now
You’re either lying or you’re leaving I know
So where you going?
Are you staying where you go?
Oh no, I don’t think that I want to know
Oh no, here comes that feeling that I know
Oh no, here comes that feeling that I know
Oh no, here comes that feeling that I know
Yeah, I know
So where you going?
Are you staying where you go?
Track Name: Sunk
You always call me when you’re sad
Well baby, aren’t you ever happy
You always seem so upset
And it makes me feel guilty
You never tell me where you are
But im sure you question that enough
Maybe you just weren’t ready to leave this place
Why don’t you come back home
Well I don’t see why you’d be embarrassed
You seem pretty sure that you can handle it alone
So show me you can get out of bed in the morning, son
It’s the little things that count
And sometimes we all need a little help
Believe me, I know.
How cliche the sound.
But maybe if you’d just pretend to care
Every little bit will help.
So this will be the last time that I call you
From now on it is up to you
So don’t say that you’re sorry already
There’s no way that I could believe you
Or what you want me to say.
Track Name: Dropping Out
I heard you’re dropping out
Do you really think that you could
I wish I was dropping out, too.
I’m somewhere they tell me I need to be
Because it’s right for them
They think it’s right for me
I stood out in the rain
In my bare feet
I should have known you’d be doing the same
You never looked so alone
So baby if there’s somewhere you’d rather be
By all means
You asked if I was ok
Yeah it’s probably just as well
If I am or if I ain’t
I feel pressure from every direction
And there are things I wish that I would say
Baby there are places I’d rather be
And someday I think I might really leave
But I wouldn’t do that for you
I’d do that for me
You found a way out
But you wouldn’t show me how
And that’s how I found out
That everybody’s in this for themselves
And I wouldn’t do that for you
I’d do that for me
Track Name: Happy Birthday
What’s the point of keeping time,
If you’re never on it,
Anymore.
Where’s the joy in being fine,
If you can’t show it,
To anyone.
When everyone is changing,
And everything is falling apart,
Don’t defeat yourself in vein.
Just hold on,
To your truest love,
And remain.
You’re still the same.
Where’s the fun in getting high,
If you can’t enjoy it,
Anymore.
How long are you going to hide,
From the ones that love you,
They love you.
When everything is changing,
And everyone is falling apart,
You can’t just treat life like a game.
You hold on,
And try,
To sleep away the pain.
You hold on,
To your truest love,
And remain.
You’re still the same.
Track Name: Usual Drill
When I get high that stomach hurts
I try real hard to make things work
But I can’t.
So slowly I start feeling worse
And now I’m thinking in reverse
Got to find a way to tell you how I feel.
I only want what I can’t have
And everything else makes me feel bad
I’m feeling bad.
And I don’t like to use my voice
The situations I avoid
I’ve been waiting for a place to walk it off
And long that fucking fever burns
And I give things with no return
I’ve been waiting for you to come back
I’m only living in the past
I have no idea where the hell I’m at
I can change
Well, maybe tomorrow
I can change and I might just try
I can change
And, maybe tomorrow will happen in time.
Track Name: Chameleon
Something is wrong
I can’t put my finger on it
Now I don’t know you
Now it feels like I was never there
Purposely forgotten.
Who?
Say what you want
It won’t keep you from learning it all
Stay where you are
It won’t keep you from moving
When I see you, have to close my eyes
You’d be surprised.

No need to be so upset.
Track Name: January
You’re going away
I told myself not to pretend that it’s another way
I saw that you called
I told myself not to pick up the phone for you
No more.
When we talk it’s only because you’re feeling lonely
You need money
Or you’re bored
You used to call me just to ask me how I was
But not anymore.
And it is sad
That I’m missing what we had
So late.
I think I’d be right saying everything we had
Was in my head.
But, in your hands my friend.
Time to go and I won’t keep you for my own
Stay out of sight
Stay easy on the eyes
In my life I’ll have to take my own advice
But for tonight
It’s easier to hide
And oh, little island of a life
Time to go and I cant keep you for my own
Stay out of sight
And leave me with the why
And it is sad that im missing what we had
So late
I think id be right saying everything we had was in my head
In your hands my friend
You're going away
im not upset but I still wish it were another way
You're going away
im not upset but im convinced it is the only way
Track Name: Ouroboros
I don’t want to keep on running
I don’t want to act like I know what I want
I don’t want to fight this feeling
Anymore.
If I could just tell it’s working
I swear that I would take them every night
I just want to walk right through that door
And I just want to know that what I found
Is what I was looking for.
Thinking of you
I know that I have loved you
So give me window
And ill give you wall to hide behind
Start over, rope and wine.
Hard to be you
I fear I can’t be satisfied
Leave this place or make it a home
Is it time?
I can’t believe it no.
Leave this place or make it a home
Is it time?
It can’t be time.
Track Name: Salt
You don’t have to stay
If you don’t think you can wait
For me to turn this water into wine.
I know you hate this place
It is written on your face
And we both know
That’s why I let you get your way.
Well I feel lonely
But I don’t know why
I take that back
I wanted to pretend.
Well I saw fire
and I half expected hell.

The time to say it
Is now.
Open mouth, im scared
Whats coming out.
Yeah you love me,
But you love you more.
Don’t you.

I take that back
I wanted to pretend
I saw fire
and I half expected hell.
