Track Name: Silk Flowers
For the dead-
Will you please let me sleep when I'm in my bed?
Oh, shit

You trapped me in your cage
You trapped me in your mind
You trapped me in this rat race maze I find
That I'm not fine
No I'm not fine
'Cause I'm not mine, no

You asked me to speak
Then you sowed my mouth shut
Now you're blaming everyone else for this rut
And that's not fine
No that's not fine
I'll take what's mine, yeah

What's worth complaining?
I've got something worth saving now

I wanna run but my shoes are tied together
Wanna wed but I'm scared of "forever"
Yet, I'm taunted by "never"

You're fake as silk flowers, though
Track Name: Chronophobia
Scared myself the other day
I felt like I slept through the past year
And I've been thinking way too hard
On things I know don't matter to me

And sometimes I wonder how time passes by
Watch as the sand falls through the hourglass
We don't get too many chances around here
And if you'd ask me personally, I'd say it's kind of embarrassing
But it's more embarrassing that

The mountains, the mountains, that surround me make me feel small

They make me feel
Will I regret all that I've done wrong?
Will I regret writing this song?
Will I regret all that I've done wrong?
Track Name: Vanishing Act
Gotta start from the top 'cause they burned it all down
This is your chance to turn it all around
Around around around
'Cause we're worried for you
That you're gonna disappear
But you're not a ghost
Yeah, you're not a ghost

You cant give up, oh no
And you can't give up when we're still down

I'm no architect but I think we can build this back
Just as long as you think it's worth it, no
I think we all agree
It's just this struggle that makes us free
It makes us free

You cant give up, oh no
And you can't give up when we're still down

I know that this is unfair
But you know that we still care
I know that you know it's unfair
But oh, we still care

You cant give up, oh no
And you can't give up when we're still down
Track Name: Punch
Every word you said
Was a punch in the lip
But I smile back politely
'Cause I don't care one bit, not one bit
I don't wanna pick up my phone
I just wanna be left alone
I need you like blood in my veins
Just need something that'll help me keep feeling sane
I'm being swallowed by hopes and doubts

And I guess that I'm wasting my time
Singing songs that keep up at night
A decade ago would you let me know?
That we would be here

The time I spent by that lake with you
It scared me cause I know it's true
That you'll be living here and I'll be over there
But as long you swear that you don't mind
I'll swear back that I don't mind
I don't mind, no

And I guess that I'm wasting my time
Singing songs that keep up at night
A decade ago would you let me know?
That we would be here

I'm just glad that things are different now
'Cause I could never stand the way
You'd get drunk and forget everything you say
Things are different now
Track Name: Inhale/Exhale
I say things I don't mean more than I mean to
I'm sorry for bringing this up
You're not alone
Until you feel it deep inside of you chest and in your bones

And I say things I don't mean more than I mean to
I'm sorry for bringing this up
Breath in, breath out
This is not the end
Track Name: Arsonist
I know I'm responsible
And I know what's good for me
But I won't listen
To the words in all my songs
To the words in the back of my head

These kids I went to high school with got caught
Burning a house down
But they won't listen
To the words in all their songs
To the words in the back of their heads

And I,

And I, think we're all on the verge
Of burning a house down
But we wont listen
To the words in all our songs
To the words in the back of our heads
Track Name: Pride
Swallow your pride
Before you end up swallowing every grain of salt in the ocean
'Cause your ship is gonna sink
You think your so high and mighty
If you ask me, I'd say you might be
When the foundation falls from under you
There will be nobody there to catch you

And you go on and on and on
About how much you say you care for me
When I never felt like anything more than melodies played on a guitar
I was never truly there
And that's exactly why I don't care

I threw myself overboard
And you won't catch me trying to swim to the top pleading for a gasp of air
And we both know these things:
Life, it isn't fair
and I don't seem to care

Two things I've learned:
Life comes at me too fast
And anything worth loving never lasts
Excuse my pessimistic attitude
I never felt like someone that you'd include

And you go on and on and on
About how much you say you care for me
When I never felt like anything more than melodies played on a guitar
I was never truly there
And that's exactly why I don't care

I threw myself overboard
And you won't catch me trying to swim to the top pleading for a gasp of air
And we both know these things:
Life, it isn't fair
and I don't seem to care

No i don't really care
Oh no
No I don't care
And I'd be lying if I said I did
And I'm no liar

But now,
Now you can't look me straight in the eyes
And oh, looks like you're still wearing that disguise
You wear it well, you always will
