Track Name: Say Hello
Someone's throwing stones at my window.
I know that face but I can't recall their name.
As I climb down my roof I slip and fall.
Sometimes I feel that I feel nothing at all.

say hello.

Well my best friend has never been much of a friend.
I feel like he walks through every door that I open.
His smile is a disappointing reflection of who he used to be.
His feet are inside my shoes, and I think he's finally getting to me.

say hello.

Well i've got a girl whose looks could really kill.
But I think my heart may be too empty to fill.
I feel like such a disapointment to her.
I'm a lover and she's just another girl.

say hello.

Misery you're killing me.
Tell me why I can't be happy.
Nothing lasts why bother try?
Everything sucks and then you die.
I'll never hear another sound.
As I live my life underground.
I'll never know what you wanted to say.
You never wouldve said it anyway.

It's all the same.
Track Name: Out Of Step
Summers over, leaves are falling all around
The city's colder, my bones are sinking to the ground.
We're three feet below now, I just can't dig myself out.
You're so different now, tell me what you're really all about.

Why, don't bother. Just take this one step at a time.
So you can find a reason to sleep at night.
Why, don't even try, just take it once and make up your mind.

War is over, we sleep inside eachothers dreams.
We're getting older, closer and closer to the gun.
Will we ever take a break from work and play.
You do what you want now, but tell me what you're trying to say.

Why, don't bother. Just take this one step at a time.
So you can find a reason to sleep at night.
Why, don't even try, just take it once and make up your mind.

you said you said over and over again.
you promised but you lied, you promised but this died.
dead to me and I'm dead to you, through the disguise you're looking through. you're so pathetic but what I would do just to touch you one last time, is that a crime, one last time.

Why, don't bother. Just take this one step at a time.
So you can find a reason to sleep at night.
Why, don't even try, just take it once and make up your mind.
Track Name: Falling Asleep
Do your ideals rust in the rain?
Do you feel our lives are oh so plain?
Genuine lies, an admission to doubt.
There's wisdom in knowing that we know nothing about ourselves.
And we crash and burn.

What's there to say if you can't say it?
And if I can't explain it, how do I expect you to change it?
I thought you could read my mind but I don't think you have the patience or the time to read the signs.

Every time I try to I can't breathe.
And when I write you it's cause I can't speak.
I don't say what I want cause I want what you're not and I'm falling asleep.

And when you go to Seattle in May I hope it rains up and down on your parade.
Just like you did on all my good days and I put this all on you but I got to
Trust myself that I won't drown in another shallow pool again like you
And maybe one day just one day feel what I think and think what I feel.

Every time I try to I can't breathe.
And when I write you it's cause I can't speak.
I don't say what I want cause I want what you're not and I'm falling asleep.
Every time I try to I can't breathe.
And when I write you it's cause I can't speak.
I don't say what I want cause I want what you're not and I'm falling asleep.
Track Name: Em
last sunday was the day, that we changed the world.
you can only say no so many times before you let go.
thank god we have eachother. but do we have eachother?
I think there's so much more to this, I think there's so much more to this.

best friends this will never end, I keep telling myself but I cannot pretend that we don't have something here. best friends twisted at the ends, I can try to hide but I cannot defend, myself from you.

last sunday was the day that we sold the world.
you don't have to say yes, just don't ask for less, ask for more. thank god we're so familiar, but are we really familiar? you can't tell me it isn't right it's black and white, I think it's grey, it's great.

best friends this will never end, I keep telling myself but I cannot pretend that we don't have something here. best friends twisted at the ends, I can try to hide but I cannot defend myself from you.

best friends this will never end, I keep telling myself but I cannot pretend that we don't have something here. best friends twisted at the ends, I can try to hide but I must defend, myself from you.
Track Name: Consider This.
consider this, me putting myself out for you, something I don't quite often do, but it's me you're looking through. I'm sick of this, all these nonchalant misplacements. I think my heads going slow, I think I'm about to explode, I think that I'm gonna go, I think I've already said to much, I think I'm crazy for you baby.

well my eyes never felt so shallow, I don't even know why you bother with me. I don't understand why you lie and you bitch and you lie to everyone but me. well I guess I'm not so special, not good enough or not quite as handsome as whoever was me before me whatever works for you.

consider this, my worst mistake. on the floor in which we laid. I should have asked if it was ok. well i would say, baby I'm a risk taker, well honey I'm a heartbreaker and I'll split you in two to just tell me what to do. you tell me everything but the truth, I think I'm crazy for you baby.

well my eyes never felt so shallow, I don't even know why you bother with me. I don't understand why you lie and you bitch and you lie to everyone but me. well I guess I'm not so special, not good enough or not quite as handsome as whoever was me before me whatever works for you.

I want we're the only friends that we have back and I'll never regret what we had, I just can't take it tonight. I'll never watch the day after tomorrow again, and i'll never look back and remember when. there was never when just now and then.

well my eyes never felt so shallow, I don't even know why you bother with me. I don't understand why you lie and you bitch and you lie to everyone but me. well I guess I'm not so special, not good enough or not quite as handsome as whoever was me before me whatever works for you.

consider this me putting myself out for you, something I don't quite often do, but it's me you're looking through.
Track Name: Sound Of A Crowded Room
the first day we met you were smoking a cigarette and I didn't like that and you didn't like me. you had an ugly old dress and your hair was a mess and your shoes were gold. your apartment resembles an empty compartment in the console of my car. want to get a drink or two that's not what i like to do, I like sitting in crowded rooms just listening.

to the sounds humans make, the motives they create with thin crust and no taste, no body no face. we argued about holding hands, no boy you must understand this means nothing but a request, you're no failure no success now the movies starting. the car is starting. take me home, I don't want to be alone, just take me home I don't want to be alone.

sit close, closer. sit close, closer.

we never solved our problems, we left the solutions on the tips of our tongues. now we both lie at the bottom of our livers and our lungs.

our preferred vices, how nice is the sound of a crowded room?
Track Name: GKN
I can't tell you how many times I stood up for you.
I can't tell you how many times I was there for you.
And your dad came in with his gun and pointed it at your mother, and I was your brother that night.
Who will I walk with this winter in the blistering cold?
Who will I say goodnight to besides myself, I don't have nobody else.
Why is everything changing it's freezing away my life.
Why is everything changing you're taking away my life.
If you ever want to come home I'll open the door.
But it's that last door I'll ever open, for you.
Just come on home, back to me.
Track Name: You
You've got the kind of smile that makes you look surprised.
Just as the sunday morning sun always shuts your eyes and I wait for you to come back to life.
I would wait months for the silence to break.
While you were half asleep and I was wide awake but you slipped away.
Hey, why won't you just open your eyes?
And see me next to the sun in the sky.
And find that we've got nothing but time.

I want you and nobody else.
I love you and nobody else.

Why'd you never wear your hair like that?
You've grown your bangs over imperfections that I used to love.
So how many hairs from my head should I cut?
And how many pounds should I shed from my gut to feel like a new man?
Cause I've grown tired of running for some type of finish line.
When I've realized I'm not gonna win.

I want you and nobody else.
I love you and nobody else.
I want you and nobody else.
I love you and nobody else.

So here's to the house that we will never live in
And here's to our kids and the life we won't give them
I can't help but wonder that if you had just swallowed your pride
Down deep with water and not wine that we would have had more time
Give me more time.
Give me more time.
Track Name: Sunday
Today felt like sunday.
So did yesterday,
And the day before tomorrows war will be waking up for another day.
Just like every other day.

All my shirts don't fit.
All my words are shit.
Always looking for a flavor that don't exist.
Dependent on dependance that I don't declare.
So what's the problem here?
Here's to another shitty year.

Deflate my head.
Take me off of that cloud.
I am nothing to be proud of.
Take me off your back.
I want to run.
Off into the nearest setting sun.

I avoid mirrors.
Haven't seen myself in years.
Is my hair still brown?
Am I still a clown?
Or did my makeup wash away?
Did I melt on a summers day?

I can't change your view.
What I am to you is if I'm not good enough for myself.
Why am I too good for everybody else?
Here's the bullet, take your best shot.

Deflate my head.
Take me off of that cloud.
I am nothing to be proud of.
Take me off your back.
I want to run.
Off into the nearest setting sun, alright.

Today felt like sunday.
So did yesterday,
And the day before tomorrows war will be waking up for another day.
Just like every other day.

Deflate my head.
Take me off of that cloud.
I am nothing to be proud of.
Take me off your back.
I want to run.
Off into the nearest setting sun.

Deflate my head.
Take me off of these clouds.
Cause I am nothing to be proud of.
Take me off your back.
I want to run.
Off into the nearest loaded gun.
Track Name: Arachnophobia
I'm so far away from all of you. from the things you say, the things you do. I'm the only one who can tie my shoes, I'm the youngest son, I'll show you the bruise. we don't see him anymore, where did he go? he's locked in his room, locked in his tomb. when the fireflies begin to burn, you'll all laugh, point and turn.

he sits alone, reads his endless books of ships and sails, thieves and crooks. the binding is winding down. find me now, try me now. they slowly spin their webs as a simple joke, then he ends up dead. he's dead. we're so close but growing farther from the truth. the distance between me and you.

you're not my friends so lay me here. the table bends the story ends right here. I have nothing left inside of me. everything is on these lines of what I've come to be. these strings have heard more words than you'll ever know. these stupid things, these stupid strings are all I know. and I don't know you, you don't know me, just leave me alone.
Track Name: Privileges
I'm eating dinner alone.
I'm writing face down on the table.
Crossing vowels spilling over consonants.
I'm waiting hungry like a drone for something worth moving for.
Why am I so still, so shrill? Why can't I show what I'm made of?

Dirty socks fill my drawers.
Empty glasses provide company.
I make this mess so I can lift my hands for the inclination.

I've had enough of the heat.
I want to wear my coat again.
How can I erase what I have misplaced?
I am so glad that you are not around.

I am sleeping alone.
To the sound of war drums.
And the voice in my head speaking in third person.

I seem more so like a dream but I can't get it right.
I rewrite over and over and over.
Why can't I just fall in your line?
Why can't I just see that light?
Cause I don't believe in war or god or poetic ammunition.

I've had enough of the heat.
I want to wear my coat again.
How can I erase what I have misplaced?
I am so glad that you are not around.

I'm so fucking sick of exit signs.
Kevin slow down this is my exit.
I just want to be no one else but me
Cause I am too proud to take advantage of your privileges.

Your privileges. I just want to be no one else but me cause I am too proud to take advantage of your privileges.
Your privileges. I just want to be no one else but me cause I am too proud to eat another meal alone.
I'm writing face down on the table.
Crossing vowels spilling over consonants.
Track Name: The Camera Turns
it's a shame that we have to part
but don't think it was the distance that tore us apart
you're beautiful only goes so far
cause in the end it comes down to who you are
i guess now i know the truth
this never really did mean much to you
and you can try to defend yourself
but i know, i knew that there was someone else
remember the night you said we need to talk
things aren't working out i said so what
it's not like they ever did ever will ever could ever should
so let's enjoy what time allows and maybe we can
fall in love again somehow but the doubts outweigh the past
back when we wanted things to last so i guess here it ends
years from now we'll only say we were never friends
no words i have left to say except i hope
to see you again someday.

you may hear some things i say
but i promise you're hearing them all the wrong way
i didn't mean half the things you heard did you honestly
think i wanted to make things worse
i thought when you left you'd disappear, but i'm losing my mind
cause you're still here. i can't sleep and when i can i don't want to
wake up cause i know you'll be right there
i just want you to go away, but at the same time i want you to stay
i miss everything that made me hurt and i miss giving you the attention
you didnt deserve. and i'm just making more mistakes, everything i touch
seems to break, except you you're invincible and i'm not and i just feel
like the one you forgot. you're leaving this town forever and god knows
i'll try to forget her, but i will i will remember that when we kissed the camera turns.

you never said, never said to me but your words mean as much
as nothing could ever mean, you never said never said a thing but you did
but i suspect i never listened, the things you say, the things you don't say
the long days, take it the wrong way, i can't take this, i fucking hate this
the words just pile up to be concealed by the touch of your lips.

and what you want and what i have are two different things but can't we work it out somehow?
