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
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 seasons over, the seasons over now

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
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: Back Then
Empty bottles fill a cluttered room with shuttered windows
Nothing moves except the time
Lying down and to herself she keeps her head in limbo
Imagination in its prime

In her youth, she found her truth in constellations
Cause back then, that was when she felt alone
But by now it seems that she's trapped in someone else's dream
Delusion never hit so close to home

Empty notebooks fill a cluttered desk with scattered paper
Nothing moves except his mind
Who would ever guess the matches and the smoky vapor
Would be the curse that he designed?

In his youth, he found his truth in Good Vibrations
Cause back then, his black pen could write for days
But by now it seems that he misplaced all his quotes and themes
Seclusion never kept them from decay
Track Name: By Now
burning letters leave a faded hint of past transgressions
so removed yet so sublime
with the ember she remembers all those distant lessons
and how her stars would not align

in her youth, she found her truth in constellations
cause back then, that was when she felt alone
but by now it seems that she's trapped in someone else's dream
delusion never ever could have hit so close to home

deeper sleeping was a hope to not be met but bested
nothing proved it was his crime
learning whether he'd be better with his heart arrested
inspired a pain that wont unwind

in his youth, he found his truth in Good Vibrations
cause back then, his black pen could write for days
but by now it seems that he's misplaced all his quotes and themes
seclusion never ever could have kept them from decay

empty silence tends to flutter until someone breaks it
common ground is hard to find
she rewinds to find his complications try her patience
another dream she left behind
Track Name: Our Sordid Past
I never should have let it end,
And it's clear to me that she took off again,
But if she wanted to leave, I should have learned and got out of the way

"I fooled you twice and shame on me
Now I wish I lost that darker part, you see
And these last two years feel like they've really only lasted a day."

You said goodbye, but it's not easy
I had to try, but only made you hate me
I want to lie, it's just a passion lately
You knew this fool hadn't known that your window had closed

When all the dust had settled down
And I finally stopped to take a look around
I saw that something you said had told me everything I needed to know

If I had known it then and there
Then I might have saved our future when and where
Those mistakes were made although it seems like a forever ago

You said goodbye, but it's not easy
I had to try, but only made you hate me
I want to lie, it's just a passion lately
You knew this fool hadn't known that your window had closed
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
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
