Better Off 04:18
Hold it and let it burn We’ll be bold Like we owned it all And oh my friend how you’ll be better off than before Laugh it all down the drain Our heads throb Dizzy from all the dreams And oh my friend you’ll forget how it was before And I’ll be down in that well Waiting for the ladder to drop down Now that you’ve seen me there’s no turning back I liked it better when it was white and black But oh my friend How you were better off before Gasp once and hold it long We’ll need a witness for all the damage done And oh my friend how you were better off before And I’ll be down in that well Waiting for the ladder to drop down
2.
Glass 03:19
Still breaking glass to stay awake when I come back No one saw it anyway And though I was one of the last to stay My words never sounded right in this place And though I follow what they say My words don’t sound right in this place It’s never It’s never enough To break this open
3.
I’m awake when everyone’s asleep Asleep when everyone’s awake With a lust for life Everything will be alright But you keep asking about tomorrow And I keep forgetting I have nowhere to go I never thought this day would come Ain’t this fun I never thought I’d get so numb Ain’t this fun To see how the edge looks When will we stop crumbling? Why do my bones always break?
4.
Deserve 03:43
Every time, every time I head out I tie up these knots and keep my windows up I see you’re looking down I see you’re looking down that way But in these eyes you won’t find anything I don’t know if you heard It’s none of your concern So I guess we’ll get what we deserve Got nowhere else to go today I’m imagining all the nice things I might say But you’re still looking down You’re still looking down that way And I’m treating words like they’d kill me all the same Maybe somehow the roof will fall Maybe somehow the walls will come down
5.
Holding On 03:21
So you’re depressed When there’s no bridges left Cause you’ve burned them to the ground And I’m awake Wondering what’s in those pills you take Can’t we just flush them all down? The edge is bound to break When you hang in a slippery place I’ve heard so many times before When will it stick? But I’m still holding on A lost cause? I don’t think it always was But you’ve left so many scars I’m shut in I should be learning to forgive But old habits die hard But I’m still holding on But only for so long I’m still awake I’m a seed about to break Is there more I could’ve done?
6.
I’ve said some things I’d rather forget Breathing fire just to see how it lands Your broken tide washes through The walls that I carefully grew But the ghosts that haunt this house are here til the bitter end Hang on to it all Knowing nothing at all I’ve seen some things I’d rather forget Tell me it’s just the season of distress Memories lost in the ocean Bullets that tear right through skin And words on a page that say trite concerns instead Hang on to it all Knowing nothing at all I’ve felt some things I’d rather forget Young, lost, and ignorant I drove north for three days The gall and the hope to get away But the open sky reminds me I have little sway
7.
So we walk about As it starts Immerse into the green My eyes are open wide My heart beats I’ve been waiting for weeks Vertigo kicks in Thoughts held within There’s no turning back now Now that my mind is seized I’m relieved Just being on solid ground Most of my thoughts fell out my ears Hours ago So it goes But I’ve been asking for this Am i too old? I don’t know Under the open sky I’m magnified How long will it be? So if I fall behind Just this time Please say you’ll come back for me

Three 02:48
Spend each night staring at my face Thinking I’ll just play it as it lays I hope I stay I hope that I stay
