Track Name: These Choices Were Lived In, Can We Forgive Them?
I'm not so young and in love like I was before
feeling older, feeling to be close

And I run, run, run, run.
Running around, try to, try to, try to get out of this town.
And I, I know.

It's always the same thing
Are we on

We're like a song that you learned yesterday
It's the four best words you'd ever sing.

And I run, run, run, run.
Running around, try to, try to, try to get out of this town.
And I, I know.

It's always the same thing
Are we on
Track Name: Responsibility Won't Kill You, but It Might be Contagious
A messaged bottle in your hands
A shoe string and two tin cans
A broken box under your arms
Secret prayers to the stars
You think you know who you are
But you wish that you knew more
So strange how you can love
You hate how you can hide so much

It's always something you can let go of
I don't want to know, I don't want to know
When the weight becomes to much for you to hold

Excuses or alibis
We drained every bottle dry
We live for wasted nights
I only dream in black and white

It's always something you can let go of
I don't want to know, I don't want to know
When the weight becomes to much for you to hold
With every look you make
Steer the conversation another way, its all because
You stay

Read alone in the dark
Words can fill an empty heart
Any way for you to hide what's really on your mind
Take a drink and crack a smile
Hope your charm can last all night
With any luck this is the one
You're fucked up when it's all done

It's always something you can let go of
I don't want to know, I don't want to know
When the weight becomes to much for you to hold
With every look you make
Steer the conversation another way, its all because
You stay
Track Name: The Chandelier Swing
Tell me what I've got now
It seems it's all forgotten
Keys are in the door but the blood pours out and stains the floor
I'm reeling and running out of time
My mind keeps moving backwards
I look up but the rear-view's shattered
Words turn to mosaic patterns

Ink doesn't seem to flow
Biting down hard to form the hole
Blank stares to fill the empty pages
One day I know she'll find her voice
But not before it fills the void
Crystal's cracked and all the lights are fading out

I used to wear my heart on my sleeve
But now this shirt is torn
There are patches on the open seams
To hold inside what's left of me
So now I reach up towards the light and
Swing from side to side
Momentum building up to push these words
From my gut

Ink doesn't seem to flow
Biting down hard to form the hole
Blank stares to fill the empty pages
One day I know she'll find her voice
But not before it fills the void
Crystal's cracked and all the lights are fading out

I used to wear my heart on my sleeve
But now this shirt is torn
There are patches on the open seams
To hold inside what's left of me
So now I reach up towards the light and
Swing from side to side
Momentum building up to push these words
From my gut

Could this hold
Without support
To buy some time
To find my voice?
Track Name: I'm Doing This for Me, but I'd Say You're Worth It, Wouldn't You Agree?
You'll never know if you don't change
It's all you know to play it safe
You lie to cheat your heart
You steal to play a part
Just once you need to let go, go, go, no no no no
I know I'm just a child
I've led, I let this lie
Wake up to be someone else

Is temporary considered a short time
Goddammit I think I felt it my whole life
This reputation has been killing me slowly
Temporary translates to lonely

You think you know
You think you're saved
Let's see you open up to pain

Is forever considered to be fleeting
I don't care I'm ready to be momentary
If I learned anything
I can feel everything
Is this love
This is love
