Track Name: Habit
V1)
I’ve got something to say, but I can’t say it.
It’s just a question for the old.
I want to give it time but not my life, I think that it’s a break from feeling cold.

V2)
I’ve got something to break but I can’t break it.
It’s just a habit that I’ve formed.
If I could open wide and sing like I escape, then I could trust my brittle bones.

Ch)
Can you buy me a new life, form a river from a hurricane?
Build around me when I hide?
Cause if not I’ve got to get away.

V3)
I’ve got somewhere to stay but I won’t make it
I’ve grown accustomed to the road.
I’ve got to settle down and keep the crown on straight
At least until someone else knows
Track Name: Autumn
V1)
All the open eyes around us
Shouldn’t see what we don’t show
Our petty fame went up in flames
And I cannot let go

Pch)
You make me wanna run
You make me wanna run away and hide
You make me wanna run, but
You make me wanna gamble for more time

Ch)
I alone can end this storm
Tired and cold, the autumn wind blows
I alone can end this storm
Tired and old, the autumn wind blows

V2)
Set sail across the water
To somewhere we can’t go
We’ll sink one day, so far away
But I will not let go

Pch)
You make me wanna run
You make me wanna run away and hide
You make me wanna run, but
You make me wanna gamble for more time

Ch)
I alone can end this storm
Tired and cold, the autumn wind blows
I alone can end this storm
Tired and old, the autumn wind blows
Track Name: Watch The Stars
V1)
I’m sitting on the steps with a photograph of a person who wants to be
More than tied down to a temporary dream
I feel my head shake like I’m born again but there’s nothing profound about feeling like the cameraman
In someone else’s scene

Ch)
I can sit and watch the stars
V2)
And I feel it all at once when I’m home again
Everything is the same as when
I was young. I just need some space to breathe. i can’t help that I’m awake when I pretend to sleep
On the rooftop I can hear the promises I made, that I would not be here
Without more to say

Ch)
I can sit and watch the stars
V3)
And now the hourglass is keeping me awake
I watch you fall
I’ve spent too many stolen hours above it all
Track Name: Only I Should Know
V1)
You watch the faces at the bar, when you feel alone. You say you wanted somewhere else to feel like home.
It’s just a pity we’re so far, from my kind of roads
And I don’t know if somewhere else could feel like home.

Ch)
I know that we are prone to falling apart sometimes
And if you’re sad alone am I better off?
With earthquakes down my spine
Cause if I could just float on well I’d try
There’s too much time

V2)
You’re saying things I wanna hear, when you feel alone
You’re saying things that only I should know
You’re saying things I wanna hear, so you can feel alone
You say things that only I should know

Ch)
I know that we are prone to falling apart sometimes
And if you’re sad alone am I better off?
With earthquakes down my spine
Cause if I could just float on well I’d try
There’s too much time
Track Name: Fade Out
V1)
Take a look at my face
Memorize the lines
Is it that much harder, that much stranger in the night

I’m a hollow frame
And it’s getting harder to pretend these demons won’t fight

Cause I know you wanna stay
We’ve made memento mori claims
I guess I found a sense of shame

Ch)
And it all comes down
As the lights fade out
Well it’s not what I said but darling, I know now

Oh that when we bow
And the lights bare down
Nobody tells you how to face the crowd

V2)
Take a second to think
It’s about that time
We could force the door shut, board it up to stop the light

I’m a broken frame
And it’s getting harder to pretend these demons won’t fight
