Track Name: Speak Honestly
I've dissected you in my head
So many times, there's nothing left

Everything divides
Flickers from the sky
Sit and watch it die
Those goodbye kind of eyes

Say something awful to me
At least then I''ll know you mean it
I'm just glad we're talking
You can't speak honestly
Simply sad to say you know me
Calling this love when you're leaving

I've been living out of boxes
I'm not ready to move on from all this conflict
You were breathing the same air as me
You could feel it thickening, it wasn't just me
Track Name: Launchpad
Mark the calender
For this is the last time that you'll see
An unstoppable force
An immovable object
Combust so spontaneously

Why would you want to go up in flames?
Why would you not let me extinguish the flame?

"Mark my fucking words
This is the last time that I'll be
Available to be what you wanted
But you're too arrogant to see"

Why would you want to go up in flames?
Why would you not let me extinguish the flame?

You'll never get it out of me
Like I've been sworn to secrecy
My lips guard a ship that I'm letting sink

Why would you want to go up in flames?
Why would you not let me extinguish the flame?
Track Name: Barb Wire
One more time, spit it right into my mouth
Don't try to make me sit down
I'm not fine if we're being honest now

I can't get you out of my head
Can't draw your scent off of me
It kills me how every book I've read
Reminds me of how you speak
Track Name: Dancefloor
That light never hit quite right in my room on your face
It never stretched out or filled up the space
It never got in my way
That light never hit quite right, and it never stayed lit
Even when my thoughts started to creep in
And they watched me sleep

I can see you on the dancefloor
Moving like you always wanted
I can see you in his bedroom
Moving like I want you to

My hands shake like their secret's out
I think things people don't talk about
Like how I'd kill you in my bedroom
And hide you in the walls just to see if you'd talk
But I'm trying to stay calm
I'm surprised I kept my head this long
I'm surprised I kept my head
Track Name: Martyr
Is it all as bad as it seems
Or is that just the way the world looks to me?
Is it all as bad as it seems
Or have I just seen the worst of what we can be?

I'm no martyr, don't follow me
Jesus himself couldn't save you from the likes of me
I'm no martyr, don't follow me
How big could god's plan for me really be?
I'm no martyr, don't follow me

If Lazarus and Jesus
Died and rose again, then so can I
Track Name: Blue Hair
I took a look before I hit the road
I didn't just leave your house, I'm well aware that I left home
I took a heart with me and let it go
It's been two years now and I still think of you when I'm alone
You can't tell me that I didn't try
But I could look in your eyes and say I wouldn't make the same mistake twice
You can't tell me that I'm not alive
But there's a case to be made for the parts of me that I let die

Moving forward gets hard to do without running shoes

Slowly moving pieces always work in such precisioin

You fell asleep on me
But woke up in your home
I still find Blue Hair
In everything that I own

It could still work if we make it
We made it out of the basement
Track Name: Water Dog
Slam the door, I know you're mad
Asking why I can't look back
Like it's something my brain lacks
Maybe I just feel too bad

I'm selfish though
You told me so
Stay miserable
I'll miss you though

It's kind of sad you hang around
Knowing I'll just let you down
Unlovable, you know that now
Nothing that I care about

Take me back to your apartment
Put me back to sleep
Track Name: Wind, But
What am I caught up in this time
And why does nobody know how to help
What did I create inside my head
To cope with all of the things that you do
What am I caught up in this time
Who am i here
Leave me by myself
Is my body as sick as my mind
I can't feel my hands but they're touching you

Who am I here
Leave me by myself

There's no middle take the loss or step it up
There's no simple way to be the first to talk
Everything I loved I've been delivered from
Weren't you the one who told me I could run?
There's no middle take it all or break it off
There's no simple way to say I wish you'd call
Maybe now that it's all done I'm better off
And you're the one who's suffocating what you want
Track Name: All Black Aura
Do they want love, or just a home?

Sorrow, hollow
I am just a shell of my old self
Crash, burn, die slow
The state of mind I'm in
Since you lost hope

I'm losing sleep, I think I'm passing out
You know I never felt more comfortable than on your couch
Didn't know my disease could be a verb
I carried every single fleeting word inside my mouth
Track Name: Piglet
I've never seen a ghost illuminate such radiance
Decompose my sentences to fragments
You became a host to something parasitic
Who knew you could be so masochistic
No one wants to hear the truth 'cause it's too pressing
Lack of honesty you're not adressing
You were better off before those claws sunk in you
Before you ever left my bedroom

I know I wasn't the only one
Who got split apart like your serpent tongue
Blindsided, guess I'm just falling out
Please help me now, I taste blood in my mouth
I know I wasn't the only one
Who got split apart like your serpent tongue
Blindsided, guess I'm just falling out
Please help me now, I taste the blood in my mouth
