Track Name: Make You Disappear
MAKE YOU DISAPPEAR

I've been searching all around,
asking for any way out,
that clock is ticking down on me.

So I'll be where time cannot be found,
with my head squarely in the clouds.
Still I don't need your sympathy.

I see you every morning,
the seconds dripping from my face,
and something keeps reporting
like a joke every other wasted day

I took the bet
I'm so upset
that I couldn't give an answer

I keep waking up
all soaked in sweat.
Maybe you could ask me one more time?

I've been searching all around,
asking for any way out,
that clock is ticking down on me.

So I'll be where time cannot be found,
with my head squarely in the clouds.
Still I don't need your sympathy.

Surround you with my stories.
Yes I could turn a rain into a pour.
If it keep you waiting for me,
then I'll put on a face you can't ignore

I'll shake your knees,
make you believe
The if you stare you'll see right through me

I keep changing shapes,
make no mistake,
that you won't know who's walking out that door.

I've been searching all around,
asking for any way out,
that clock is ticking down on me.

So I'll be where time cannot be found,
with my head squarely in the clouds.
Still I don't need your sympathy.

I'm waiting on a chance to fly away
to lift my feet from this terrain.
Still nothing else at all seems clear

I need to make you disappear,
without you it's sure to be my year.
Track Name: Living Proof
You walk into the room and drink electric blue
If I could find the words then I would sing to you

We will all be fine
I spoke the words but never realized
I'll be fine
I spoke the words but never realized

You're living proof,
that everything will breath into the past.
I spoke the words but never lived through it.
We're here just for the future to forget.
Track Name: Step Into The Light
I step into the light, it does me no harm
I become clear, and it makes me feel invisible and strong,
incapable of wrong, like I can be safe inside the storm.

Oh the toil I've been putting myself through
Oh these shaking hands have nothing to hold onto
The safety that I build around my kin
Just hasn't got the same effect within

I haven't got the will to push it out, I have too much doubt
I haven't got the spirit to believe my, tired legs can carry me away
To find another day, to hold up my weight

I step into the light, it does me no harm
I become clear, and it makes me feel invisible and strong,
incapable of wrong, like I can be safe inside the storm.

Without the courage to fail
we will never enjoy the progress that we've made
I feel tired, I feel stuck inside those doors
I deserve every gain the future holds

I haven't got the will to push it out, I have too much doubt
I haven't got the spirit to believe my, tired legs can carry me away
To find another day, to hold up my weight

I step into the light, it does me no harm
I become clear, and it makes me feel invisible and strong,
incapable of wrong, like I can be safe inside the storm.
Track Name: Rings
I've been dancing like a criminal
Knowing that one day my life will end
And I will have to pay for all I've done
But I don't want this to end

I wish that I could hit reset
But I'd do it all again
If I could get a second chance
I swear that I would make it last

Long ago
I left this point here on a curve
I'm arriving back again

I've been spending all my borrowed time
All my dollars turning into dimes
and All the weight is making my back bend
I'm losing all my friends

I wish that I could hit reset
But I'd do it all again
If I could get a second chance
I swear that I would make it last

Long ago
I left this point here on a curve
I'm arriving back again

Now I'm spinning along rings
Living on eternal circles
But the second that I leave
The center's pulling back on me

Now I'm spinning along rings
Living on eternal circles
But the second that I leave
It's pulling back on me

I wish that I could hit reset
But I'd do it all again
If I could get a second chance
I swear that I would make it last
Track Name: Outside
I call you up to make you talk again
Open up your eyes before this ends
Because you are the only reason for my life
You're sinking fast so won't you learn to
Hold your breath before you're under

Why can't we take a look outside
I think we'd change each other's lives
Because I don't think it's worth it to put up with the fight
While all the world is waiting for us to wash our hands
I don't need to listen but I need you to understand

If you can barely look into her eyes
Without knowing that you'll just fight again
Open up your eyes before this ends
Because you are the only thing that's keeping me alive

Why can't we take a look outside
I think we'd change each other's lives
Because I don't think it's worth it to put up with the fight
While all the world is waiting for us to wash our hands
I don't need to listen but I need you to understand

I don't ever want to see you holding back
Waiting on another reason to attack
Let go of spite, don't waste your time
We'll act on love, we'll be just fine

Why can't we take a look outside
I think we'd change each other's lives
Because I don't think it's worth it to put up with the fight
While all the world is waiting for us to wash our hands
I don't need to listen but I need you to understand

I need you to understand
Track Name: Porcelain Skin
We had a good few months, oh so long ago
I couldn't gather up the courage to let you know
We put blankets on our windows
To keep the sunlight from our room
With mornings making room for the afternoons

We may still see the light
but we know that the star is dead
We may still see the light
It's just as white as your porcelain skin

You've probably got your place all picked up
Yeah you've got pictures of your friends
And lonely is such a scary thought
you surround yourself with them

Now you've got bruises on your knees
and shoes that match the street.
Well I can't hide the fact that I'm disgusted.

We may still see the light
but we know that the star is dead
We may still see the light
It's just as white as your porcelain skin

I'm like a doll with my faith all painted up
Just as fake with the dreams to match me
Track Name: The End Of Summer
I wrote a letter home today
To be sure they weren't forgetting me
But the sentences just fell off the page

Well I can only be a runaway
Until I find myself a place to stay
but I will hold you close to these open notes

It's tough to say what you need to hear
I probably won't be around next year
It's tough to say what you need to hear

I'll be gone at the end of summer
When all the leaves are changing color
It's getting dark a little earlier
I'm sure your life is getting better

Do you remember when the radio,
used to tell us all who we should be,
but the songs got old and sounded all the same?

My heart keeps jumping when you're calling me
Though we haven't got a thing to say
When I hear our song I have to let it play

It's tough to say what you need to hear
I probably won't be around next year
It's tough to say what you need to hear

I'll be gone at the end of summer
When all the leaves are changing color
It's getting dark a little earlier
I'm sure your life is getting better

I'm such a bore I'm getting old
I held your hand when it got cold
How could we be so full of hope?
Dad's playing card bicycle spokes

I see the path beyond this line
It's funny that I'm running out of time
Live everything your parents spoke
I've read enough to see the joke

Buttoned my suit and sold my soul
How could we be so full of hope?
All my possessions bring me fear
I'm living out my dream this year

I'm such a bore I'm getting old
I held your hand when it got cold
How could we be so full of hope?
I've read enough to see the joke

I've read enough to see the joke
Track Name: Secrets
There are angels digging in my shoulder
They're telling me not to reach out to this tempting light
It's an overbearing passenger, with a promise like a cannon
And it has its chains connected to my neck

I'm taking on this heavy burden
The connection that it keeps is worth its weight in gold
Their outstretched hands keep tugging my pockets
asking me to keep them shelter from the cold

Do you see what I see?
The ground between us shifting as we stand
Now the distance is growing

Hold that pose there tight
So I can see your face
When your skin become opaque
I'll be the sun that warms your wake

I want you to evaporate
So you be relieved
I will protect your wings

But you can never leave too late
My knees and legs are crumbling
as I struggle with the weight

I'm walking howling halls
How can I ignore these screams?
Every turn I see your hungry face
Begging me to eat

Do you see what I see?
The ground between us shifting as we stand
Now the distance is growing

I'll keep your secrets tight.
I'll keep your secrets tight.

Do you see what I see?
The ground between us shifting as we stand
Now the distance is growing
Track Name: The Strongest Hurricane
The message was clear
That I'm through with your suffering
You may not understand
But you are causing too much pain
The solution is not to point the blame

I won't hold back
When you tell me to clean my act
I won't give in

You can send the strongest hurricane
I'll keep marching on parade
No I will not raise my hand
When you drown me in your hate

And paint all of my mistakes
Though I'm freezing in the rain
Only love will fill my heart
I will not be afraid

The message was clear
That I'm through with your suffering
You may not understand
But you are causing too much pain
The solution is not to point the blame

I won't hold back
When you tell me to clean my act
I won't give in

Only love will fill my heart
I will not be afraid

I won't hold back
When you tell me to clean my act
I won't give in
Track Name: The Awful Truth
I'm building walls around
the people that I love
They used to be of paper,
now I barely hear them talk

I know they're safe and sound
with roofs above their heads
I reach to knock that door
but I can't raise my hand

On these walls the pictures tell it all

When I find the awful truth
I can leave it all behind
I'll be the fading imagery
When you finally close your eyes

Take the pictures from my walls
Their eyes are burning holes
It's hard to stop my heart
when it's beating out my chest

Take the pictures from my walls
Their eyes are burning holes
There's nothing to protect
When I finally hit my stride
I won't pretend

I'm walking with both hands
tied behind my back
I'm sick of being overwhelmed
And open to attack

I can't be still, I have to move
To keep my heart from stopping here

I keep my mind so occupied
there's barely room for thoughts at all

On these walls the pictures tell it all

When I find the awful truth
I can leave it all behind
I'll be the fading imagery
When you finally close your eyes

Take the pictures from my walls
Their eyes are burning holes
It's hard to stop my heart
when it's beating out my chest

Take the pictures from my walls
Their eyes are burning holes
There's nothing to protect
When I finally hit my stride
I won't pretend

When I find the awful truth
I can leave it all behind
I'll be the fading imagery
When you finally close your eyes

I close my eyes
Protect me from these walls
I close my eyes

When I find the awful truth
I can leave it all behind
I'll be the fading imagery
When you finally close your eyes
Track Name: Doctor (Bonus)
I used to care, I used to read books
I used to care about the way I look

We used to be better, we used to spend more time together
Now try convincing me to move

She wants to be a doctor
she doesn't have time for me
She wants to bury herself inside of books that I can't even read
She wants to be a model
The girl has no self esteem
She wants to dance around and prance in clothes
That she can't afford to keep

You and your jet black hair
You even say it with the clothes you wear
That I'm not the kind of company you keep
After the notes I wrote I find you disappearing like a ghost
Am I fading out or am I just asleep?

We used to be better, we used to spend more time together
Now try convincing me to move

She wants to be a doctor
she doesn't have time for me
She wants to bury herself inside of books that I can't even read
She wants to be a model
The girl has no self esteem
She wants to dance around and prance in clothes
That she can't afford to keep
