Track Name: Shelby
Shelby, why have you been crying?
Did things fall apart again?
Shelby, tell me, are you lying?
I know it now, but didn't then

Shelby I asked you a question
And you've yet to meet my eyes
Was it really your intention,
To say that you know better? 'Cause I don't think that applies

Words cannot repay all the debts you've made
You just couldn't care, and now I'm aware
With a strict interpretation of goodbye,
I'm done with you, and done with asking why

Shelby, I know you're not perfect
But that never bothered me
Till I figured out your purpose
And of that, I guess we'll see

I cannot explain the reasons that I gave
With every choice I made I always pushed away
The only thing that could have made me see the truth
But it was there I only needed proof
Track Name: Cure for Boredom
Making bad decisions as a cure for boredom
In isolation, disturbing and unwanted thoughts
How does deprecation become a pattern?
A pale reflection in the water, rippling inwards, gasping for air

We don’t have long till the canary dies
It’s bound to happen once for sure
And if it coincides with the changing tides
High tail it out of town

He who laughs alone laughs more with others
And barring circumstance, I can’t help but laugh at myself
Down in a hole where nothing really matters
I guess I’ll stay here
The season’s over, the season’s over now
Track Name: For What Purpose
you said made it on your own
and that no one cared to
help prepare you
survey the shade you found alone
when sunlight finds you
hope reminds you

for what purpose?
I'm certain we crossed that line
long ago
for what purpose?
I've heard it a million times
I'm letting go

here again it falls to me
you need perfection
with no connection
and then it's when you fail to see
we're not improving
I'm still moving

put back the pieces as they were
relive them as a blur

for what purpose?
I'm certain we crossed that line
long ago
for what purpose?
I've heard it a million times
I'm letting go
for one purpose
and one purpose alone I tried
to let it go.
Track Name: Attraction
I’m withering, wasted, waiting
complacent, even though
you’re shivering; dusk is fading
But I need to know

Is this what attracts you?
Dead flowers returned from a friend?
With colors to guide you
Never to meet head on again

My burden is conscious contact
finding myself intact
You’re certain of what you want, that’s fine…
But I need to know

Is this what attracts you?
All bitter and burned to the end?
With colors that blind you
Never to be led on again
Track Name: Down for No One
fortune and sorrow shifting fault lines down below
stagnant tomorrow, pray for a raging undertow

a criminal mindset forged in a lifetime of regret
begging to borrow, following footprints in the snow

setting a course out, obsidian skies capsize us now
stuck in a stormcloud, raining excuses on the ground

overcome by the sun
the pallbearer’s daydream has begun
a hundred days in a complex maze
down for nothing and no one

overcome by the sun
the pallbearer’s daydream has begun
a hundred days in a complex maze
down for nothing and no one
the pallbearer's daydream
down for nothing and no one
Track Name: Silent Crash
suddenly sincere
how unconventional
shuddering with fear
it’s unintentional
unintentional

suddenly it’s clear
this castle build of glass
(it wasn’t built to last, no it wasn't built to last)
covering my ears
to feel the silent crash

beg forgiveness from the one
who told me everything
caught inside the Tantalus
helpless for a drink

suddenly I know
I'm indefensible
but I never let it show
incomprehensible

beg forgiveness from the one
who told me everything
caught inside this Tantalus
helpless for a drink

moving on, where will you be?
will you get along without someone you never need?
we've been trapped for so long, there's nothing left between us
moving on... where will I be? where will I be?
Track Name: Nevereven
I am caught in the glare of the headlight lane
Like a child who stays up late, to stare at the moon
I am caught unaware in the diamond rain
But you know I’d never try if I couldn’t fall through
Follow through

I need no script to cut these strings
A bad trip through to lose my wings

I’m a victim of questions, a fallen saint
And I lied to get inside the thought that ensued
Was is nature’s selection a choice or a game
That decided when it’s time for this to conclude
And I'm falling through

I need no script to cut these strings
A bad trip through to lose my wings

You tell me lies I need not hear
And then despise me for my fears
I cannot be what never came
Such entities of tethered blame
It’s not over never even was
Your coldest shoulder bothers not with trust
Enough’s enough, tell me you agree
Turn away or learn what’s inside of me
Track Name: Die a Legend
Green light
Shining down on me
This room is much more crowded than it seems
Pink Floyd
Staring off the wall
So scared to fly I think that I might fall

It’s true
Gonna die a legend is a lifestyle
And it’s one that we pursue
I know
That we’re wasting our potential
But it’s worth it
When they play a song we wrote

Clear glass
Filled with liquid flame
I let her know I’m terrible with names
Black ice
Painted on the lawn
I’ll have one more but I’m already gone

It’s true
Gonna die a legend is a lifestyle
And it’s one that we pursue
I know
That we’re wasting our potential
But it’s worth it
When they play a song we wrote

White lies rattle in my head
But knowing you it’s only truth I said
Blue eyes staring back to show
Exactly what I didn't want to know
Track Name: Steal the Sun
There’s a ghost
In the smoke I’ve seen
Or was it just a dream?
And when its wind
Passes through my lungs
I’m forced to hold my tongue

I’ll do anything to be alone
Like a lion from the storm
I'll do everything to be ignored
I'm the locust from the swarm

Am I done,
Asking for more time?
Don’t want to cross the line
And when the sun
Steals another night
Another sign that I’ll never get this right

But I’ll do anything to be alone
Like a lion from the storm
And I’ll do everything to be ignored
I'm the locust from the swarm

Well I’ll do anything to be alone
Like a lion from the storm
And I’d do anything to be ignored
I'm the locust from the swarm
