Track Name: Enough Reuters Around For Days
Untouched was my innocence and my guilt
But indirect doubt from their mind prolonged the action of my own self-doubt
How do I begin to interact with my loved ones in my life when all I can think of is the way they make me feel in grey

all day and all night
I hope it never meant anything
If so, I wish that self-control would affiliate with common sense

Tell me why the heat is here and tell me why it's the most uncomfortable air
I know you might hate everyone but I hate all that you accept
The fact that you are capable of change for good but never try for your friends who deserve it
If I wanted validation to let it be known my close ones are deranged, I'd repeat this year again

all day and all night
The worst part are the reasons why I don't let go
I can't, I won't, the confusion won't leave until I learn to make it my own
Track Name: Still
Relieved the only way that makes sense to me and all my verdicts have reasons to be
Never thought, remotely thought that promises would quickly fade away
Cares vague more broadened than seas I've never seen at night
Hope to tides of seasons, hope to God my notions are far away from me

No matter how I attempt to hide from my everyone and everything, life catches my cloak in a different wind
Nostalgic flashbacks, a reflect and contrast of a feeling kept at my own expense will be enough to keep me satisfied

Apprehending my own thoughts aside from my selfish endeavors only making things clearer
My co-dependence to fulfill a life like this are whole heartedly gone

No matter how I attempt to hide from my everyone and everything, life catches my cloak in a different wind
Nostalgic flashbacks, a reflect and contrast of a feeling kept at my own expense will be enough to sleep with head-ached mind
Track Name: Pretty Good On Your Feet
Have gut and none at all to recognize anything
I'm caught with getting out of bed or my life

It won't work
Opposite idioms that I sought are all I can describe

I'll take what I always can get, the show I relate with
As soon as I cross that threshold, I could name the things I'd surround myself with
I'll jump that feeling so I can stay clear

I'll dump this home for a new day, a day that I'll love without adverse empathies

So scorn
Track Name: TVP-830
Hold on, sleep, confide with no one
Unshut eyes saw you pay a bill I could not control

Has man left yet, gone eastward?
No need, no lift, no wrong
Bare no righteous belief
Sincerely, everyone else

Wait it's cold in here, and I said I won't hate how it's worse than whole worlds
Not much worse than whole worlds
Where are my words

What's the question of pro-me and life
Slow beating eyes are all disdained, distressed and embodied death
It's only in my mind
Track Name: Crude Handles
With what I want with what I have is unacceptable
Bring me back to sense, cause painted black or white lies unwanted repetition
I found from past repeats to hold my own all alone, the way it should be

but what I could never understand was how to feel okay this time
Predictable as my mood, apathy had jumped the moon and left to be what I have and not what I want
Track Name: Who Found Their Way Back
Condemned myself for a pointless chance
Completely self-conscious, I refuse to see brighter than ever, holding up my sheets to slide from underneath the covers to only hold the pillows with me, to carry my head up high while my neck can't even try for the odds I'll shift and fall awake

How could it be only four after all my tolerance had driven past the point of no return
It may as well be the first day of my life
Somewhere in between the affection I cared for
Suddenly lost as a ghost on my bedroom floor

The first home where I'd want this to stop is the same home with a different planned but same past
What I had for a moment like this will never coincide with an embodied cure, sedatives prolonging an end
God's will may be a joke, but mine is not
Track Name: Yet Another Sinew
Believe me the means of sympathy is unexcusable behind a damnable lie
Seeing as recovery astrayed at first, but a sense of stability is revived

Modest waves of rain concaved my mind for the hours it was here to stay
Part ways I wished, but held this urge, they may as well all show again

Unbound from throe, yet abrupt risks send me back to the outside world
Let me down one more time to clear my passage of right
Drown all paths that lead me here to the thought that they'll never retrace in a lifetime, every single day

Grasped the neck of the art of sound, but sure enough nothing had come about
What means will I have to take if my strengths fail at the hands of one last daze

Unbound from throe, yet abrupt risks send me back to the outside world
Let me down one more time to clear my passage of right
Drown all paths that lead me here to the thought that uncertainty lays beneath the honest hope I'll never embrace
Track Name: Hayside Luhv
Chased my heart to satisfy the only one I know, the one I know is me
A trivial cause, my upsets no longer push against the wall that stands between my joy and amour, and I hope to see the odds beat further more than I would need

Strung out, not gone are the stresses I held too close, cause the life I knew would exist in a barroned tone

Shelve my thoughts cause everything will be all right
Shelve my thoughts cause today might be all right

Shelve my thoughts cause everything will be all right
Shelve my thoughts cause later I'll be all right
Shelve my thoughts cause today might be all right
Track Name: Lila
I'm not to believe in first encounters, and I've earned it I'll tell myself
See the sun grow between the trees, remind me to never forget
It's like that time I scratched both of my knees at once alone

Remember pacing back and forth as the neighbors grew senselessly manic?
No one could name what I heard almost every night until you did
Track Name: A Division Of Labor
Bold and in my mind I've opened up myself to go, and pass up opportunities even though simplicities aren't so simple

Remember the stones beneath my feet, I know you can't
Past two at night
As my stomach churned I knew I had cared
Felt soft brown hair and hand on hand

Do you think I love feeling this way?
Stupid the reasons, but that's okay

In false love the joyride was, but the thought had kept me well
What was to come?
A string of depression I cut off with no hesitation

You won't see eye to eye as desperate it sounds
Don't find my eyes as they drown in lull
As light I'll be or so I'll say
But complain I will until I see you again
Track Name: F. N. J.
Things I'll never touch with a ten-foot pole are glazed as a last resort for an empty soul
I could never live up to my own expectations when I expect myself to constrain my emotions to bane

My excuse for unadulterated folly follows on my environment
So safe, surrounded by people I could never ever relate with

It's what I needed
Track Name: The Curse Of Experimentation
Kept on youth, I'll understand quicker
Never let me tell you what to do

As rocks erode and the layers change unnoticed, I'll dwell on things like this a bit more as an accident

Up a notch, I'll lose more sleep over things you'll never think about
If I needed idiocy, I'd listen to you
