Track Name: Unacceptable Behavior
The time has come that we face the consequences
of everything we've done
there's no one to save you now
as it all comes crashing down


Fresh loss in your eyes
(I know you're wrong)
You said you were fine
(I can't stay here)
I can't help but think that you're already gone
(Say goodbye)
Your word against mine
(Don't believe me)
What terrible timing
(I'm not the only one who saw you)
As it all comes crashing down


Lie to my face
Tell me it's what I want
Why can't you see
The sun always sets on me
We all new it was coming
The goodbyes
The white lies
As it all comes crashing down


Fresh loss in your eyes
(I know you're wrong)
You said you were fine
(I can't stay here)
I can't help but think that you're already gone
(Say goodbye)
Your word against mine
(Don't believe me)
What terrible timing
(I'm not the only one who saw you)
As it all comes crashing down
Fresh loss in your eyes
(I know you're wrong)
You said you were fine
(I can't stay here)
I can't help but think that you're already gone
(Say goodbye)
Your word against mine
(Don't believe me)
What terrible timing
(I'm not the only one who saw you)
As it all comes crashing down

This time I won't be the one to stop you
Track Name: Shirt Waist
Aren't you tired of picking the roses
From the thorn bushes
How many times have you cut your hands on their vice like fangs


And it makes me sick
(Here we stand)
Do you have to treat yourself like this
(Hand in hand)
They have nothing but their broken words
(Here we stand)
That you've made to be your entire world
(Hand in hand)


I'm so stuck in this watered down version of reality
We're both so enveloped in
Look into my honest eyes, and tell me I'm wrong
I wanna hear it from your voice


It's so funny how the things we do
Are so often to be used
Who taught you these words
These empty little phrases, they don't mean what they should


And it makes me sick
(Here we stand)
Do you have to treat yourself like this
(Hand in hand)
They have nothing but their broken words
(Here we stand)
That you've made to be your entire world
(Hand in hand)


I'm so stuck in this watered down version of reality
We're both so enveloped in
Look into my honest eyes, an tell me I'm wrong
I wanna hear it from your voice


Your soul won't leave you but your body will
This out of body experience is something real
Track Name: Cicadas
Try and be a little consistent for me please
Drop the act and tell me something I can believe
I'll blame it on my lack of self control
I feel it pouring over, and washing away on my skin


Teach me to drink the poison that I make
Save for myself, but give none away
Show me the words you kept in your throat
Let them escape, and become my new home


I feel your sadness
But tell me where is your rage?
I feel it turning me into something I'm not supposed to be
I'm tired but I'd rather do
Anything but sleep
I choose every word so carefully, just begging that you'd notice


I find myself pacing around my empty room
My mind moves too fast for me to understand
Every single day seems half as long as the last
I'll eat my three course meal of anger sadness and fear


Feel my knuckles turn to white
Skin begins to burn
Crimson shadows overthrow all of my sanity
Feel my knuckles turn to white
(I was the one who)
Skin begins to burn
(Put the holes in your hand)
Crimson shadows overthrow all of my sanity
Feel my knuckles turn to white
(I was the one who)
Skin begins to burn
(Put the holes in your hand)
Crimson shadows overthrow all of my sanity
Feel my knuckles turn to white
(I was the one who)
Skin begins to burn
(Put the holes in your hand)
Crimson shadows overthrow all of my sanity


Show me the words you kept in your throat
Let them escape and become my new home
Track Name: Close To Home
(Sticks and stones)
Who needs these sticks and stones when you've nothing aside from your broken bones
(I've been dying)
I'll try harder for those who brought me water when I was dying of thirst


I've built up these walls for too long
I've built up these walls for too long
I've built up these walls for too long
I've built up these walls for too long
To tear them down


(Give me something. Anything)
Give me something new to breathe, and I'll exhale all the rest of it
(Give me something. Anything)
My lungs are all but empty, breathe new life into me


(Not ashamed)
I'm not ashamed about the places I've been or even the things I've done
(Fighting words)
I'll always have my word as my weapon, even if it doesn't really mean all that much


(Give me something. Anything)
Give me something new to breathe, and I'll exhale all the rest of it
(Give me something. Anything)
My lungs are all but empty, breathe into me



I have nowhere to go
Now that I've lost you
We've both spoken words
That have Proved to be untrue


(I have nowhere)
((These words were untrue))
I have nowhere to go
Now that I've lost you
We've both spoken words
That have Proved to be untrue


Maybe I'm better on my own
I need a new place to call home
Things aren't getting any better for me


Maybe I'm better on my own
I need a new place to call home
Things aren't getting any better for me
(Just come home)
Just come home


Give me something. Anything
Give me something. Anything
Give me something. Anything
Give me something. Anything
Track Name: Heavy Half
I'm all choked up, I leave these phrases in the chambers of my throat, but they long to get out, begging to be used, this story's been told before and my points already been proved


Things were much easier then
Why can't it be like it used to
(I knew what was going down, I didn't know what to say)
Don't tell me that you lost your way with words, they escaped from your grasp just like you did to mine
(I knew what was going down, I just didn't know what to say)



Ridden with guilt, caught up in your lies
Tell me it hurts, and your blood is red like mine
You're falling back down, from the top of the world
I can see all your pain, and it helps me survive



You're left all alone, and you've forfeit your home
You severed your ties with all the people that made you whole
You've been dragged down to the bottom,
And I see that your comfort's gone
These broken in sheets are the only thing you've won


Things were much easier then
Why can't it be like it used to
(I knew what was going down, I didn't know what to say)
Don't tell me that you lost your way with words, they escaped from your grasp just like you did to mine
(I knew what was going down, I just didn't know what to say)


Ridden with guilt, you're paying for you sin
Tell me it hurts, and your blood is red like mine
You're falling back down, from the top of the world
I can see all your pain, and it helps me survive



YOU WONT FEEL A THING
Track Name: Forrest Ln.
I felt all the pains of growth, but there's no growth in these hungry bones
There's thorns in my side that you don't even care to notice
But you given me brand new eyes
To see the colors that I have yet to find
Are you suffocating under the weight of my actions today
These mutinous concepts and scenarios, they drive me insane with the thoughts of failure that I cannot bare to relive again
Mediocre sleep cycles will hold me over for now
These insignificant rituals have become my new home
Track Name: House Keys
News like this stops you in cement, never thought this could happen again
I felt my chest fail to rise and fall, matching the coldness of the eggshell halls
I had to push myself right through the doors just to catch my breath as I fell to the floor
the walls keeps you from hurting again
Keep your distance, just watch where you tread


Empty promises, and useless words are all I have left of what I used to know best
Just say the words and I'll be gone, whats the point in trying to mend what we both know can't be cured


You tried to break me down
(You've already torn me up)
You tried to break me down
(You've already torn me up)
Spare me your insincerity, your battered lungs
(And your bloody knees)
Now watch me fall apart
(Now watch me)


I haven't even heard from you in days, the last scene just keeps getting replayed
My thoughts seem to stumble and ring in my ears, I would try to explain but you're not even here
Retrace my steps back down the hall, try to remember where it all went wrong
We promised that we'd never end up like them, look at where we are just following trends


Where am I supposed to go from here
Mentally checked out for the past two years
I'll try to remember how to act, like none of this ever even happened, as if we didn't collapse


You tried to break me down
(You've already torn me up)
You tried to break me down
(You've already torn me up)
Spare me insincerities, your battered lungs
(And your bloody knees)
Now watch me fall apart
(Now watch me)
Track Name: Ellipses
My inner conflict is spilling out of my pours
Presented in front of me, upon the tiles of the floor
I've been taken for granted, and I'm all but spent.
If I've been given so many reasons, why haven't I left?


I'm relapsing and falling back
in the abyss of normalcy
I've already seen my downfall, none of this is news to me
Take apart my body and recite the flaws you see
I'll pretend that i'm not thinking of them constantly


I probably would have saved you
(Where did you run off to)
Some better words
(Don't leave me out)
But I wasn't given the luxury
Of knowing it was the end
How dare you feed me stones, and tell me that they're fruit
(There's no one left here to help you out with this one now)
How many times do I have to plead with you


Your silence fills my ears, with voices you'll never hear
(You'll never hear my voice again)
With Every single step there's a bigger chance of falling down
(I'm disappointed in the person I am)
Tell me that you're as disappointed as I am in your end of our deal


Pick at the wires that tie my soul to this
frivolous vessel
turn me into something that we both can call our friend
I fear this impending closure, it's one that I can't stop,
though rest assured you've already left your marks


I probably would have saved you
(Where did you run off to)
Some better words
(Don't leave me out)
But I wasn't given the luxury
Of knowing it was the end
How dare you feed me stones, and tell me that they're fruit
(There's no one left here to help you out with this one now)
How many times do I have to plead with you


I bending over backwards
(Don't tell me)
Just to keep you whole
(I'm the only one)
I'm trying to become a person
(Don't tell me)
That you could call your home
(I'm the only one)
But my heart is growing cold
My heart is growing cold
Track Name: Private Property
Bent but not completely broken
We all wear our own scars
Some are just bigger than the others with different shapes showing different pains
Where did you go
I'm Caught up in chasing shadows


Don't let the fears take control of your mind
been there before and I'm still trying to find
My way back to where I came
By filling the holes left in my brain
And I swear that I'll do my best
Maybe then you'll see
That I'm trying my best to breathe


I've tied my tongue in this knot
But I'm terrified at the thought
Of what might come next
Or if I'll even take another step
I'll show you all the things
I never wanted you to see
Cause I don't care
That you couldn't think any less of me
I got out on my own
I clawed my way
to where I am today
I've been lost in my own eyes
It's been too long since I was fine
Rip me apart
Bring me to my knees
I'm tired of being someone
I'm not meant to be
But I'm in last place
And I don't even want to finish the race
I thought I reached the surface
But I'm still treading water
I'm sinking to the depths


I fear that my failure will spread
And I'm hanging on by a thread
But I've drank from the water that quenches all thirst, and I've tasted the pain that makes hearts burst
We are one in the same
And my hands have been cut open
But I don't feel a thing
I've been shedding my skin
Waiting for new life to sink in
Give me something
Give me anything
My eyes were glued shut
But I'm finally waking up
Track Name: Light of Day
I've been living in the back of your head
been waiting for you to notice how much I've bled
I failed to understand that you're not meant to be my cure
What's gone is gone and nothing stops me from moving forward


Pull my teeth out


Don't you worry about me anyways
(I've seen the light of day)
And I've been clawing my way out of this grave
(My wounds have begun to fade)


Watch me shed what little skin I have left
Don't think I was made to pay for the sins I repent
I have no one to blame
For all of my mistakes
I could've begged for your help
But I kept it all to myself


Don't you worry about me anyways
(I've seen the light of day)
And I've been clawing my way out of this grave
(My wounds have begun to fade)
