Going Heel 00:37
And all things considered, I'm broken I'm bitter While you're the result of the redundant listeners From exploited emotions and context cliches I'm a mortician who's sick of digging my own graves So I found solace in transparent bottles and cellophane Your body stays numb but your mind stays the same

Parachutes 03:35
We're dancing with cadavers To find companionship Due to disenchanted pipe dreams And the lies that left your lips A suburban legend With nothing to show for it (a suburban has-been) Can you tell me I'm worth it That this wasn't all for nothing Foundations decay and I'm falling through the cracks We're the lion heart of last nights arrival I know it's all about survival but I'll take a leap of faith without a parachute I'm one step from jumping off the edge Is there still time to make it Or am I just in over my head We're taking out pages From books we never read Written by the other side of you and I Casualties of Nine-to-Five Asking me for honesty will only bring the worst out in me I'll take a leap of faith without a parachute I'm one step from jumping off the edge Is there still time to make it Or am I just in over my head The sea she cast her storm This rusty boat cannot withstand the blows And truth be told I can't support this anchor weight This can't be it (Is there still time to make it) (Or am I just in over my head) We're the lion heart of last nights arrival I know it's all about survival but I'll take a leap of faith without a parachute I'm one step from jumping off the edge Is there still time to make it Or am I just in over my head Over my head

Departures 02:56
You know I hate to see you suffer But could you hold on a little longer Til I get home I miss the knocking on my bedroom door You used to keep me up at night But now I lay here wide awake without you And I still look for you in all your favorite spots But you're not there And it's not fair You don't get used to contemplating loss And it's only creeping closer From start to end, you were always my friend Man it never gets easier And hey kid, I'll miss you too There's comfort in familiar places And destinations filled with sentiment Like the past is in the present But the moments don't last And then I'm left with all the pieces It takes so much longer to pull yourself together Than it does to fall apart But we'll never play that game again And home will never really ever be the same again And lately, I think I've lost myself without you But I'm gonna take it day by day Cause time never really stops it only fades away I'm trying to save face, but we both know That I've seen some better days You don't get used to contemplating loss And it's only creeping closer From start to end, you were always my friend Man it never gets easier And hey kid, I'll miss you too You know I hate to see you suffer But could you hold on a little longer Til I get home You don't get used to contemplating loss And it's only creeping closer From start to end, you were always my friend Man it never gets easier And hey kid, I'll miss you too

If walls could talk I would be the headline of every paper The paragraph under every picture That stays burned inside your head But my demons are well fed Locked up in secret Nobody has to know You crossed the line and now It's your mistake to pay You crossed the line and now It's my move, I'm still a jack of all trades Tonight's the night it could happen again I can't help that I'm in love with misfortune All you wear is cloak and dagger But all I see is glass Your secrets are see through This night might be your last You might think I'm self-righteous But there's no way to fight this Like you're sinking deep in quicksand Like your life is just clawing at your throat You're up to your neck in your daily misfortunes You jumped in just to see if you could float I'm off the deep end Fighting my way back Against the current Take me as I am or lock me in a cell My heart goes to heaven and my mind goes to hell My mind goes to hell Tonight's the night it could happen again I can't help that I'm in love with misfortune All you wear is cloak and dagger But all I see is glass Your secrets are see through This night might be your last We're growing in our ranks We're swinging side to side You drown in your mistakes We are the high tide BLEGH Tonight's the night it could happen again I can't help that I'm in love Tonight's the night it could happen again I can't help that I'm in love with misfortune All you wear is cloak and dagger But all I see is glass Your secrets are see through This night might be your last

LXVI 03:44
Therapeutic parked car conversations Will lead us through this year's congregation Our bleeding hearts and broken bones I'll see you when I get home Don't you wait up for me Don't wait for me Some things are meant to be lost So I'll make the best of bad advice and bad news Cause this is who I am, and all I'll ever be I had your best interest in mind Could you say the same for me Oh the tables have turned You tied me up in forget-me-knots I left you hanging on my back porch So call this self diagnosis I'm a product of your afterthoughts (your afterthoughts) Like petals pulled from roses (they wilt away) Pick me through I love you nots Don't you dare stop and wait for me Don't wait for me Some things are meant to be lost So I'll make the best of bad advice and bad news Cause this is who I am, and all I'll ever be I had your best interest in mind Could you say the same for me Could you still say the same for me How did we let it get this far We both know I'm worth more than this How did we let it get this far We both know you're worth more than this How did we let it get this far We both know we're worth more than this

My mind wanders as I settle in Neck deep in calculated time wasted And time well spent I fight for hours to conjure these constructs to be misled But it's just another day It's getting hard to rationalize The pursuit of prestige on these 10-hour drives So will you still salute me as this ship starts sinking Cause these sails are made from wishful thinking The curtain's been pulled So string me up from your rope string lights As they burn blue and bright We felt like kings as we walked through the alley that night So call me a cynic As I pray on the optimist You're all just martyrs Looking for a sword to fall on So sharpen your blades as you sharpen your tongues It's getting hard to rationalize The pursuit of prestige on these 10-hour drives So will you still salute me as this ship starts sinking Cause these sails are made from wishful thinking So much to lose and less to gain I'm a shovel against an avalanche I only have myself to blame But I'm doing okay (I gathered all my things and fled the scene) (I traded parties for wandering aimlessly) (Around the streets outside Columbus) (But I'm doing okay) It's getting hard to rationalize The pursuit of prestige on these 10-hour drives So will you still salute me as this ship starts sinking Cause these sails are made from wishful thinking It's getting hard to rationalize Leaving loved ones behind with those tears in their eyes So will you still salute me as this ship starts sinking Cause these sails are made from wishful thinking
