Track Name: Commencement
I’m leaving you, I’m walking home
Good luck to you, you're on your own
I’m getting out, I’m going home
You’ll never make it on your own
Track Name: Distances
I tried so hard but nothing feels the same
This pains a constant anchor and you’re the one to blame
You tried to deter me from everything and everyone
Told me that I changed when I just hate what you’ve become

I’m leaving you I’m walking home
Good luck to you you're on your own

Chorus:
The thought of you just makes me sick
And I’m troubled when I wonder why I dealt with your shit
You see no longer will I sit inside and pass my time alone
While your out getting caught up in all the trouble you condone

You gave your all just to hang me in your noose
But your efforts fell to pieces and it only ruined you
I apologize and wish you all the best in life
But I’m packing up my things and I’m heading out tonight

I’m leaving you I’m walking home
Good luck to you you're on your own

Chorus:
The thought of you just makes me sick
And I’m troubled when I wonder why I dealt with your shit
You see no longer will I sit inside and pass my time alone
While your out getting caught up in all the trouble you condone
Track Name: Crooks & Criminals
This is one of the worst things I could say
You lie and cheat to get your way
A different story every single day
And it will never change
You’re lying to yourself
And filling us with doubt
I think I know what happens next
(What happens next)

This was my only way to say I'll make it on my own
You just think your perfect - This was never worth it
Wasted time when I trusted you, I never had a clue
You just think your perfect - This was never worth it

It's that time again
Your thoughts are sinking right into my head (into my head)
I'm getting sick of this .. I need to just forget
About you, about all of the people that believe a word you said
And I'll do, anything, I need to get ahead

This was my only way to say I'll make it on my own
You just think your perfect - This was never worth it
Wasted time when I trusted you, I never had a clue
You just think your perfect - This was never worth it

This was never worth it
Track Name: Trial & Error
Stop where you stand, this is not in our plans
I’m pushing so hard that it’s breaking my hands
I’ve backed down before but I’ll prove I’m a man
And I’ll start this again without you in my plans

Just keep up your pushing and you’ll begin learning
That if you aren’t trying
These tides will be turning

Sparks fly it’s my right
To prove that you weren’t worth my time
This life well it’s mine
And I can’t see you here by my side (by my side)

We drifted apart you left no end in sight
I got a list of request that you’ve undermined
You wanted more money I pushed you aside
Hit the ground running and left you behind

Just keep up your pushing and you’ll begin learning
That if you aren’t trying
These tides will be turning

Sparks fly it’s my right
To prove that you weren’t worth my time
This life well it’s mine
And I can’t see you here by my side (by my side)

You’ll fade away (you’ll fade away)
You’ll fade away
You’ll fade away (you’ll fade away)
You’ll fade to grey (X2)
Track Name: Liar, Liar
I wonder why theirs always something new
I can fall into with you
Just admit your lying now
I’m done trying to forget about the truth
And I’m left here with these broken memories reminding me of you

Your pictures falling off my wall
No more waiting for your call
Got me stretched out arm to arm
You could say it's all my fault
But it was broken from the start
You brought the kerosene - I brought the spark

The path you led me too was far beyond what I expected
I know I know its over now
I really wish it never even happened
I’m loosing focus
And feeling out of place here
I’m lost inside a shadow of my past

Your pictures falling off my wall
No more waiting for your call
Got me stretched out arm to arm
You could say it's all my fault
But it was broken from the start
You brought the kerosene - I brought the spark
Track Name: Composure
Step inside of my shoes and take a walk for a day
You’ll notice things are just hard to explain
And I know it seems sick and deranged that I keep myself trapped til I go insane
But I play it cool and I keep it tame
Cause this isn’t a soul your ego can claim

Yeah keep yourself tucked in tonight
Cause I’m telling you now the trophy’s not worth the fight
And when your thoughts crash in like waves one night
You’ll find your gold and feel alright

Just keep your composure
When the world turns its shoulders
This all could be smoldered
If you keep your composure

I watch the stars fall form the sky
Like tear drops falling from your cloudy eyes
I’m calling out to nobodies replies
How the hell could you think I'd be alright
Yeah, how the fuck could you think I'd be alright

Just keep your composure
When the world turns its shoulders
This all could be smoldered
If you keep your composure

Step inside of my shoes & take a walk for a day..
Track Name: For the Faint of Heart
Are you serious, you're gonna let them get into your head?
Are you delirious?
Forget every single word they ever said to you
I know it's time for you to make a stand
And prove to any other one you’re better than they’ve ever been

I'm saying there not worth your breath (not worth your breath)
Along a road of no regret
Well watch them all go by, they'll all go by
We're so uncommon, we're up to something
I know that you’re all better dead
I’ve stopped my falling, so stop your talking
You’ll never be the voice inside my head

Can't compare to this
We stand out leading something different
With a clenching fist
Held tight I follow my tradition
You’re filled with weakness not a clue
I'll always shine brighter than you
Its always lies never the truth
You’re all the same

I'm saying there not worth your breath (not worth your breath)
Along a road of no regret
Well watch them all go by, they'll all go by
We're so uncommon, we're up to something
I know that you’re all better dead
I’ve stopped my falling, so stop your talking
You’ll never be the voice inside my head

Don't think about it
Live without it
You know they mean nothing to you
Just wear your outfit
Never change it be proud rise up its meant for you

I'm saying there not worth your breath (not worth your breath)
Along a road of no regret
Well watch them all go by, they'll all go by
We're so uncommon, we're up to something
I know that you’re all better dead
I’ve stopped my falling, so stop your talking
You’ll never be the voice inside my head
Track Name: Set Against
Four years have passed and I’m still getting older
Each day gone by is just more weight on my shoulders
I keep my mouth shut and scribble words in my folder
So I can release all this anger I’ve smoldered

Each day crawls by and always feels so slow
Its like I’m waiting on every single person I know
When they all go off we'll be stuck here alone
To make the most of our hopes and make each city our home

Just for tonight (Just for tonight)
And you’ll see (You’ll see)
Our name up in lights or our face on tv
And maybe (Yeah maybe)
You’ll see (And You’ll see)
I can forget about you you’re just set against me

So much stands in my way, but there's just nothing to say
Cause I’m older and I’m over.
Wishing all the pain here away, cause its just something I face
It’s so upsetting - The world is out to get me

So drag me by the lids of my eyes - And call me crazy
I’ve been craving a painful goodbye - Let me forget this city
I need to keep my concentration, set on my motivation, where my head is always high
So when I get my satisfaction, and your still loosing traction
I hope you feel fine

When you look (Just for tonight)
And you’ll see (And you’ll see)
Our name up in lights or our face on tv
And maybe (Yeah maybe)
You’ll see (And you’ll see)

So much stands in my way, but there's just nothing to say
Cause I’m older and I’m over.
Wishing all the pain here away, cause its just something I face
It’s so upsetting -
The world is out to get me
Track Name: Past Times
I needa figure it out, I threw my mind in a note
And told her everything I love about her
My finger nails in my mouth, cause I keep thinking about
All the fun I use to have with her
I miss the days we use to laugh - Without your face ill never last
I put the hard times in the past
Cause all my thoughts would fade to black

Its times like these that we can't leave behind
These memories will burn into the back of our minds
But I know, that you know, that we know everything you put me through the first time,
We can’t give up well do it again

Do you remember the nights, that we would smoke under lights
And reminisce about drunken tales
I never thought we would fight, we were perfectly right
Safe to say that we fucking failed
I miss the days we use to laugh, but without you I know ill last
I’m leaving here but looking back
On all the perfect times we had

Its times like these that we can't leave behind
These memories will burn into the back of our minds
But I know, that you know, that we know everything you put me through the first time,
We can’t give up well do it again

I never thought I would be here alone in the world
Now I’m broken and bleeding caught up in this girl
I wanted one more chance but I’m through with you
I hope you take this in cause it's all for you
I held you so damn close now you wish I cared
I drew a line in the dirt turning away from here

Its times like these that we can't leave behind
These memories will burn into the back of our minds
But I know, that you know, that we know everything you put me through the first time,
We can’t give up well do it again (X2)
Track Name: Lessons
Don't let them hold you down; you’re only sinking deeper
You gotta strive for higher ground; I know you got it in ya
I can see it on your face, the way you make decisions
It's that of one who's fake & done with good intentions

You let them get the best of you
Your heart is blind, make up your mind.
You’re falling into the rest of them
Step out of line, don't take your time.

You’re not alone (I’m not alone)
Make this a turning point
Our time is now (Don't count me out)
This is your future
You’re not alone (You’re not alone)
Make this a turning point
Our time is now (Don't count me out)
This is your future

Your time is running up
Don't bother blending in a crowd that's around you
This is your chance to be yourself
Not someone else
Don't be the one they forget about.

You’re not alone (I’m not alone)
Make this a turning point
Our time is now (Don't count me out)
This is your future
You’re not alone (You’re not alone)
Make this a turning point
Our time is now (Don't count me out)
This is your future

I HATE IT WHEN YOU SAY THAT

You’re not alone – I’m not alone
Make this a turning point
Our time is now - Don't count me out
This is your future.

You’re not alone (I’m not alone)
Make this a turning point
Our time is now (Don't count me out)
This is your future
You’re not alone (You’re not alone)
Make this a turning point
Our time is now (Don't count me out)
This is your future
Track Name: Be Classy, Stay Classy
M: It took so long I never could have thought, I'd be here after how hard I fought
T: But you lied to make your way out, yeah you lied so you could fade out
M: I stood through all the storms you brought, you played like you’d never get caught
T: But darling please just make your way out, I need to see your halo fade out

I looked you straight in the eyes and walked away while you said nothing

I watch it coming down I watch it coming down
Leveling everything around
My back is breaking from the weight your placing on it
I watch it coming down I watch it coming down
Leveling everything around
Our time has ended I’m done defending you

M: How’s it feel to find your self in lust, to betray all my long loved trust?
T: Cause you lied to keep me around
T: Dragged me in so you could throw me back out
M: I fought as if you were a must but just learned that I should turn and run
T: You dug deep to make your way out
T: You got low you do it so well

I looked you straight in the eyes and walked away while you said nothing

I watch it coming down, I watch it coming down leveling everything around
My back is breaking from the weight your placing on it
I watch it coming down, I watch it coming down leveling everything around
Our time has ended I’m done defending you

You caused more damage than you could endure
I think its time to let go..
