Track Name: Ten Years Later
It’s been a decade now
Since I called you out
Since you heard my doubts
You really fucked up now

It’s been a decade now
Since I called you out
Since you wrecked this house
You really fucked up now

You were self-destructive no control
You know I hate to say I told you so
But you were self destructive self-obsessed
You never had the heart to fight for breath

I won’t lie
I wasn’t perfect
But I made concerted efforts to try

And I won’t lie
It wasn’t worth it
Cause you compromised stability willingly
While I covered my eyes

I was blind for so long
A thousand different issues
I could cite when you’re gone
I hope you leave a legacy in line
With the wrongs
You committed
Not the self-important image
In your mind

Days grow older, nights get colder, the sky seems closer now
Track Name: Damage Control
You wrote your name next to mine
In the fog on your windshield

It’s been some time, but I swear I can still feel
The heat from that night still

I felt the highs and the lows in your tone at the same time
Pure regret you expressed on your land line

I’m in disbelief from that night still

I’m calling damage control
You managed to blow
Our city up out of the ground

And now I’m alone in this place
The emptiness takes
A toll on me don’t let me down

I told her don’t let me go
(No don’t let me go)
Write another alibi make sure that it’s convincing
So I won’t let you go
(No don’t let me go)
It was never real but I can still pretend that it’s okay when you call

Don’t let me go
I told her don’t let me go

I saw the sparks in her eyes like the sky on July fourth
Burning bright like a fire I would die for
In the blink of an eye still

But I never thought that you would be different
Now I wish I never knew you at all

Cause your tendencies became so consistently troublesome
So I began to brace for the fall

Days grow older, nights get colder, the sky seems closer now

Don’t let me go
I told her don’t me go
Track Name: Background
You left me in the background

Sixteen different times
I kept a tally down of every time you tried to cover up your lies
Had me thinking…What’s in your life?

What kinds of contradictions justify the time
That your descent denied
You left me in the dark

You left me me in the dark

You left me in the background
You left me in the dark

You pushed me by the wayside
You ripped us all apart
You ripped us all apart

It’s been a long ten years but I came home
You manifest my fears so I lay low
Redirect my anger quell their pain
But I reject your words forget your name

It’s been a
Lifetime since we last spoke
But I don’t feel that need, believe that hope
Resurrect my demons keep yours dead
They begged and they plead
But you left us in the dark

Days grow older, nights get colder, the sky seems closer now

Ripped us all apart

Unclear perception
A stage set for this scene
For this

Covey of demons
They fill the space between
Between the back and for
The for

Timing my friend
I need a favor
Fill the field of depth
The field

Days grow older, nights get colder, the sky seems closer now
Track Name: Chaos
I feel like I just woke up at the bottom of the ocean for the very first time
Took a breath of water and I’m drowning just fine
Look up at the surface and refracted sunlight
But the more that I climb

Feels like I’m falling further into places where the nothingness and chaos collide
I think I’ve come to grips that there’s no way I’ll survive
The last thing I remember is your autumn brown hair
I can see you down there
I can see you down

I can see you down there I can see you down
I can see you down there I can see you down

(I said I said)
My head keeps pounding and these drugs kicked in they just won’t work
(You said you said)
Just keep on drowning cause it makes me smile to see you get hurt

I wanna make things harder on myself

I keep my eyes wide open and I’m seconds from the surface as the currents converge
My hands can feel the air but still my body’s submerged
A cold Atlantic tide immobilizes my nerves and I don’t know what you heard

But when I woke up screaming I was desolate and desperate a horrible sight
Abandoned on an unfamiliar shore in the night
I’m lost inside the ocean no one ever found where
I can see you down there
I can see you down

I can see you down there I can see you down
I can see you down there I can see you down
Days grow older, nights get colder, the sky seems closer now

I said I said my head keeps pounding
You said you said just keep on drowning

I said I said my head keeps pounding and these drugs kicked in they just won’t work
You said you said just keep on drowning cause it makes me smile to see you get hurt

I wanna make things hard
(Days grow older, nights get colder, the sky seems closer now)

I wanna make things harder on myself
Track Name: Die Too Fast
I never looked away…homicide
Now I’m taking two a day and think I’m traumatized

All you had to say…I apologize
Gasoline inside a cut you couldn’t cauterize

She told me I’m a liar
She told me I’m a fraud
She told me everything I ever did or said was flawed
She told me I’m delusional I wish I remembered her name

Die too fast
Do you really wanna die too fast?
Do you really wanna die too fast?
Do you really wanna die?

Die too fast
Do you really wanna die too fast?
Think again before you die too fast
Make amends before you die

I got this voice in my head
It calls out my window
The sickness will spread
My vital signs been low
I’m fading away
I’m fading away too fast
Fading away too fast

Don’t listen to their lies…disengage
Keep the high until your trachea asphyxiates

Reality’s a shame…don’t participate
Reach euphoria and disregard the disarray

Cause all your friends are liars
And everyone’s a fraud
Believe me everything they ever did or said was flawed
Trust me their delusional
Now tell me again what’s your name?

Days grow older, nights get colder, the sky seems closer
Track Name: Nostalgia
I went to your apartment last night
The lights were on your windows it’s way beyond December
But you would always tell me that’s fine
With some anecdotal reason I wish I could remember

I’m lost inside my reminiscing mind
My phone blew up the silence your name lit up the call screen
And hesitantly I hit decline
Nostalgia in your voice would be the death of me and I’m the one to blame

Let go before it’s too late
And troubled minds black out mistakes that you made
Nostalgia it creeps in the back of my brain
(Creeps in the back of my brain)

I can’t get away

Uncover my eyes
Reveal every specter that’s haunted my life
Nostalgia it lurks in the back of my head
Hide every truth till I’m ruined
I’ll drown in delusions instead

I saw your aparration last night
We walked the reservation
And talked about the days when
The skies above the future were bright

I spoke with apprehension
I feared familiar tension
Would kill the conversation in time

But every disagreement transformed into a reason
That I should keep your memory alive
The truth inside my head would be the death of me and I’m the one to blame

Let go before it’s too late
Black out mistakes that you made
Creeps in the back of my brain
(Creeps in the back of my brain)

I can’t get away

Uncover my eyes
Specter that’s haunted my life
Lurks in the back of my head
(In the back of my head)
I’ll drown in delusions instead
