Track Name: Leaves
It could take us weeks to never decide...
Well, that we're through...
I was wrong and you were right...
Well, I told you...
So sorry,.. you're gonna be...
So sorry,.. all the leaves fall on me...

All The Leaves Fall On Me
All The Leaves Fall On Me

A hemmorage we can set in motion...
Wide words and blown wounds...
I don't see where you're going...
You are by far the worst I knew...
So glad it's over,.. you and me...
So glad it's over,.. all the leaves fall on me...

All The Leaves Fall On Me
All The Leaves Fall On Me
All The Leaves All The Leaves
All The Leaves Fall On Me

Up, Down, always over me...
You were Up, Down, always over me...
So glad it's over,..
I'm so glad it's over,.. all the leaves fall on me...

All The Leaves Fall On Me
All The Leaves All The Leaves
Falling Down Falling Down
Falling Down Falling Down
Falling Down Falling Down
Falling Down Falling Down
Falling Down Falling Down
Falling Down Falling Down
Track Name: Kelly Pain
Before they open and decided their blue,
thoughts were whispered to drive me cruel,
From public watch into private rooms..
and those that speak, are mostly fools.

i never loved you
i never loved you
i never loved you
the way i could

Before they open. the same sick thoughts,
of things I've broken the times i'm lost,
You graze the skin , like warning shots,
and mourning you, is every morning frost

i never loved you
i never loved you
i never loved you
the way i could

Please don't miss the Moments and walk away
Please don't miss the Moments that crawl away
Please don't miss the Moments and walk away
Please don't miss the Moments that slip away

holding on without you
holding on without you
holding on without you
holding on without you
holding on without you
holding on without you
holding on without you
holding on without you
Track Name: Connectors
If I asked you.. to leave me alone,
to dream like there's no one alive.
And have the black suits, carry me home
.. and cushion my head from the side.

If I asked you... and if I asked you..
Would you...

Well, it's a sad truth.. to know what you own,
right at the times when you lose.
Like a handful of smoke, holding us both
.. and watching us float through the roof.

We would never bruise... we would never bruise..

You cast those.. who try to impose,
living in prisons; for heads.
And I love you, like nobody knows
.. connected in all sunsets.

'Cause I would die for you... Oh, I would die for you..
It's True........
Track Name: Microphones In The Mattress
There are microphones in the mattress
and mercury in your heart.
There's atrophy in your chances
and poetry in your scars.
'Cause you're a masterpeice stalled in traffic...
And all I've ever wanted from the start.
You're in my heart.

Help Me, Decide What's Right For Me,
Divide My Life In Three, Pieces,
For You

Butterflies on elastic,
are all you ever noticed.
I tried to see what you're asking,
but appologies are hopeless.
'Cause you're the worst of me,
and the words to life.
And all I've ever wanted from the start,
You're in my heart.

Help Me, Decide What's Right For Me,
Divide My Life In Three, Pieces,
For You

This Is Leaving
This Is More
Kisses Bleed
The Seams Are Torn
This Is Leaving
This Is More
Kisses Bleed
The Seams Are Torn
This Is Leaving
This Is War
Kisses Bleed
The Seams Are Torn
Track Name: Brake Bleeder
Blank stares into the camera,..
With no thoughts of what's she's after,
No trace of any laughter,

No way out, There's no way home...

Stars blind the souls of travelers,
Names find their homes in asphalt.
Faint cries, come back to ask for,

All you want, This lonely hope...

You Sold Your Heart, You Sold Your Heart, You Sold Your Heart,
You Sold Your Heart, You Sold Your Heart, You Sold Your Heart,

The light fades, in rows are hopeless,
Lies, charades and roller coasters,..
A life, I save, inside a closed fist...

The lights go off, She's always on...

You Sold Your Heart, You Sold Your Heart, You Sold Your Heart,
You Sold Your Heart, You Sold Your Heart, You Sold Your Heart,
Track Name: Squeeze Through
Bleed through,
the cracks of a falser you.
Recluse,
nothing is for you.
Squeeze through,
and maybe it might come true.
'Cause we knew,
all about you.

Now it seems so clear...
You're never gonna run away again,
When I'm near...

No Resist, No restraint
Close Your Eyes and Drift Away
'Cause No One's Ever Here To Stay

I'll beat you,
Even if it kills me too.
'Cause I need you,..
Like a hole in the ocean.
To reach through,..
and capsize a size 5 wound.
'Cause nine "yous"..
will never be one me...

Now it seems so clear...
You're never gonna run away again,
When I'm near...

No Resist, No restraint
Close Your Eyes and Drift Away
'Cause No One's Ever Here To Stay


We Were Always
We Were Always

Here
Track Name: Rivals
Mind your business, pay attention to me,
Medication's all the wisdom I need.
I'm perceived as a part of the problem,
So I'll relieve you of any involvement, with me....

I'm continually gunned down, by glib remarks,
Best man, pressing the bruised parts.
Rebound's just a word in your weak heart.
All I every wanted for you was a new start.

So What, You're Leavin'..
Then Go Away...
So What, You're Leavin'..
Then Go Away...

Find home, a way through a pencil,
Blind hopes, broke away by the insults.
I'm cold, in a way that's resentful.
I feel I'm sinking deeper and deeper...

I feel bad, so why pretend,
That there's a way to make this end.
There's no way to starve this fever...
I feel I'm sinking deeper and deeper...

So What, You're Leavin'..
Then Go Away...
So What, You're Leavin'..
Then Go Away...
Track Name: Something Skipping
Everybody's talking, but know one's ever there.
Everybody's nauseous, trying to find an ear.
Empathetically I'm ignored, as I sink to the bottom floor.
Sickly skip along, burning up for a chance to thaw...
Waiting... for Something...

Know one said you could chew this, so cut me up and we'll share.
Swimming through restitution, and bullet holes in your stare.
Waiting... for Something...
For Something... True

And If You ASk Yourself
You Might Be Wrong
And If You Love Yourself
You're To Far Gone

I Know This Defeatist
Disown This And Cut Me Out
Without You I'm Not Alone
I Know This Defeatist
Disown This And Cut Me Out
Without You I'm Not Alone
I'm Not Alone

Soft strides in caution, can never help you prepare.
The lost lives that haunt you, But some things you should never repair.

And If You ASk Yourself
You Might Be Wrong
And If You Love Yourself
You're To Far Gone

I Know This Defeatist
Disown This And Cut Me Out
Without You I'm Not Alone
I Know This Defeatist
Disown This And Cut Me Out
Without You I'm Not Alone
I Know This This Feeling
Disown This And Cut Me Out
Without You I'm Not Alone
I'm Not Alone
I'm Not Alone
I'm Not Alone
I'm Not Alone
Track Name: Adele'
Adele.... I know you're leaving home again.
I'm wondering... If I will ever see you alive again,
'cause nothing in this world, ever really made much sense,
But benevolent tears.... always running down your chin.

The conscience that fails is just another cross you fill with nails
The conscience that fails is just another cross you fill with nails
The conscience that fails...............

Adele.... I found the secret through all your care.
Finally, this hope, that I'd be lucky enough to share.
Your severance of fear, is the reason that I'm still here.
What a privilege, the wind has, to run it's fingers through your hair.
Never another.......

The conscience that fails is just another cross you fill with nails
The conscience that fails is just another cross you fill with nails
The conscience that fails is just another cross you fill with nails
The conscience that fails...............

if the world doesn't wont me, will you still love me
if the world doesn't wont me, will you still care
Track Name: 90%
Disgusting traits, ninety percent,
Are sad and so hopeless.
Is this what it takes for us to be friends,
When days are my culprits.
Well, you shouldn't be bleeding for no intent,
Believe me I'm open....
Well, I hate your face and all you resent,
To see me unfocused....

And I'm only a friend, the enemy closest.
And there's always the end, before it gets broken.

Wait, Today, And We're Just Yesterday
I Don't Walk, Away, There's Something Wrong With Me
I Don't Act, Surprised, It's Just My Day To Die

We're dusting saints, to hope you repent,
So call me, I'm homeless.
If all intent, seem to be bad,..
Well, sorry I'm lonesome.

But, am I only the rain, falling on moments.
And I'm always to blame, when something gets broken.

Wait, Today, And We're Just Yesterday
I Don't Walk, Away, There's Nothing Wrong With Me
I Don't Act, Surprised, It's Just Our Day To Die
