Track Name: Tomorrow (I'll Be Leaving)
don’t know why I was feeling this way, I, think you can tell when I’m no good
felt it unevening and I, just thought it would work,

home, I reach for the phone.
for the call to come on
i’m really sinking.
you stand, apart from the walls,
thought about all, I’m really sinking
it’s still on if I got to leave, I’ve got to see you go

left it unraveling, I can’t, pick up the threads, not this time
really believed in you my my, I thought it would work, but I cant—

home. I reach for the phone.
for the call to come on
i’m really sinking.
you stand, apart from the walls,
thought about all, I’m really sinking
tomorrow I’ll be leaving, with your cellophane “goodbyes”
got to get out, anyway you can
Track Name: Shadows and Empty Rooms
Stand on your feet
You don’t have to be
On your own
When you go
You don’t have to see

It’s such a shame to watch you come down
Out of the clouds, and into the ground
It’s such a shame, to see you go

Wait for me there
Won’t be long, I swear
Do you know how it feels to slide away?

It’s such a shame to watch you come down
Out of the clouds and into the ground
It’s such a shame to see you go

There’s got to be some peace of mind
Some way to get to sleep at night
I’ve got to see you, hear you breathing
To say that this is what I’m fearing


In the shadows
(We wait for it to break)
Track Name: Walls
Everyone says this is nowhere
It’s not what it seems
And everyone says if you go you won’t really be free
So I try to write it down, I try to figure it out
But everytime I do the words just can’t be found

Everyone knows this is nowhere
It’s not what it seems
And everyone knows if you go
You’ll take a part of me
Where do we go when the walls come down? All that you see
It’s really gone off the rails, it’s all a mystery.

And I’d bury the roof and the walls to this town
I’d turn you away if I could turn it around
We keep growing up ‘til we find a way out
I’d turn you away if I could turn it around
Track Name: Far Away From Here
Out in the streets
They cried all night
For you to come home
And I thought it quite fine
That you’d be down
And really on your own

Pain, I feel, I see
I never wanna leave when I’m okay
Hate to be so real
But I just don’t believe

Out in the rain
We watched you go
And I just can’t say why
Just felt so strange to be alone
And really sinking, I

I don’t really wanna lose you (not again)
I don’t really wanna lose you (not again)
I don’t really wanna lose you (not again)
I don’t really wanna lose you—


Where to turn? I’m on my knees
It’s not enough. It’ll never be.
We build these dreams, we can’t live out
I’m on my knees
Track Name: The Runaway
Your feelings, what they wanted you to be
You know its what they wanted you to see
Your feelings, what they wanted you to be
You’ll take it if you lose your way

All you ever wanted was to feel like you
Were something else
And all you ever wanted was to feel like you
Were something else
So cut ‘em down, hang ‘em on the walls
Lie where we first lay
This emptiness inside won’t go away

All you ever wanted was to feel like you
Were something else
And all you ever wanted was to feel like you
Were something else
So cut ‘em down, hang ‘em on the walls
Lie where we first lay
This emptiness inside won’t go away

We’ve been moving
We’ve been moving
We’ve been moving
On

Don’t try to save me
Don’t try to save my soul
Track Name: Better Days
Woke up cold and really unaware, caught my feelings before they got away
As I lay witness to this endless game, it’s the price that you pay to live this way

Better Days
Better Days
We’re just looking for a way

Better Days
Better Days
We’re just looking for a change

December gone again, the years turn gray. Wanted to believe what they all say.
Tomorrow we’ll run faster, maybe we’ll leave this place. Tomorrow we just might lose our way.

Better Days
Better Days
We’re just looking for a change

Better Days
Better Days
We’re just looking for a way
Track Name: Bend and Break
A fear you can’t shake
This feeling, you drowned in the lake
Over night
In your heart
So full of it all
A sickened withdrawal, from the same things that
Made you crawl
On your knees

Carve out my eyes, if it makes you feel better
I can’t tell wrong from right, black from white
It’s all the same, when you’re staring down the barrel of a gun
Can’t remember your own name

Seal up your conscious in that cellophane bag,
You suffocate feelings, all that you had
You don’t need it now, I swear, in the end
It’ll just drag you down

But I don’t wanna feel
Like I’m dragging this weight
Tied at the ankles
And we just can’t relate
One more time now
Just to relieve the pain
I can’t bear

What do we cling to? When all of this is gone
It’s hard to find meaning, when you never belong
You get stuck in one place
The water just rises, fillin’ up inside you

But I don’t wanna feel
Like I’m dragging this weight
Tied at the ankles
And we’re running from fate
One more time now
Just to relieve the pain
I can’t bear

(Bend and you break, yeah you bend and you break)
(Bend and you break, yeah you bend and you break)
Track Name: Disappointed People
Just a subtle indication, a feeling I had
Cut the cord don’t leaving me hanging here like this
Just so disappointing, now the wait is over
Guess it wasn’t what you wanted, after all

What do you feel?
Do you feel anything at all?

Just a feeling that I paid for, oh the expectations
Really let you down, the worst of situations

What do you feel?
Do you feel anything at all?

(Turn your self away)
(Come back another day)
Track Name: A Farewell
In time we’ll forget the words
Promises, all that’s been burned
Ashes to dust
Hoping we’re good enough

A stain
Just a mark on a page
Your life
A day in the rain
How can we say?
We’ll be gone
Soon enough

A feeling
To open the door
Asleep on the kitchen floor
Pleasure and pain
Here for today
Tomorrow can’t stay

So I sat
And wrote down these words
As they carried your body
To the dirt
How can we say?
We’ll be gone
Soon enough

And if all that you wanna break
Don’t mean nothing at all
Turn the lights on
I just can’t see

So I sat
And wrote down these words
As they carried your body
To the dirt
I’ll see you soon, I’ll see you soon
My friend
Track Name: Gone
Falling at your feet, I just can’t find the reasons why
We do this to ourselves
So hard to believe but so easy to see there’s just
Something missing here

If it all works out, I know I’ll be around
To see you leaving
And if I find you
I know I’ll figure out the reasons we do

All these things at dark so heavy in your heart
The thoughts of going under again
We wipe the tears from our eyes, hide the things we can’t find
Stains, no other reason to try

“You’re just too young, to understand”
I hope you’re fine
Too young to understand

Falling to your knees, I just can’t find the reasons why
We do this to ourselves
So hard to believe but so easy to see there’s just
Something missing here

Time is what you need, time all you can’t be
Time is what you need to get out

“You’re just too young, to understand”
I hope you’re fine
Too young to understand
