Track Name: Rumination
I saw your mom the other day, I didn't know what to do. I couldn't tell her I haven't felt the same, since I fell in love with you. And every inch and curve of your smile, still etched into my head, and the imprint of your body, that you left inside my bed.


You are the stitch in my seams, I can't seem to sew up right, and I still get lost in the ocean, when I look into your eyes. And I'm stuck here all alone, with a condescending tone, and I can't pick up the pieces if you won't pick up the phone.


And if you want me, I am sold. Let's lay in this bed, until we grow old, and our lungs dry out from all the shit we smoke. And if you want me, I am yours, let's never leave this bedroom floor. We'll try not to make the same mistakes, We've both been burned before.


Did I waste all of my time, drying the tears from your eyes? (x2)


And if you want me, I am sold. Let's lay in this bed, until we grow old, and our lungs dry out from all the shit we smoke. And if you want me, I am yours, let's never leave this bedroom floor. We'll try not to make the same mistakes, We've both been burned before.
Track Name: First
I wish we could go back to a place, when you didn't know who I was. We could meet again, and you could re-capture all those things about me, that I know you loved. You could show me your favorite bands again. I'll wipe the tears from your eyes, bury your head in my chest.


I'm reaching out for your hand, I know it's far too late, yeah.
I stand here with this noose around my neck, the only thing that keeps my head on straight.


I remember our first night, I wish that I could go back. You rubbed my head til I passed out, fell asleep in your lap. I wish I could tell you how much you meant to me, on those nights. I couldn't let my guard down, I had too much pride.


I'm reaching out for your hand, I know it's far too late, yeah.
I stand here with this noose around my neck, the only thing that keeps my head on straight.



Over-confident, my thought are so selfish. Over-confident, you'll never call me home,again. (x2)



I'm reaching out for your hand, I know it's far too late, yeah.
I stand here with this noose around my neck, the only thing that keeps my head on straight.
Track Name: Leave A Mark
You smile in your pictures, but I can tell that something just ain't right. And when I look inside, I can see the bruises behind your tired eyes. Broken bones, and a soul in a body cast, it's not his first time, you know it won't be his last. When do you think it gets better?

Leave a mark, leave a mark, I'm sure he leaves a mark. It's okay, turn the lights out, you can't see it in the dark.(x2)


I hope you got a good concealer to cover up the mess he's about to make. But a pound of makeup will not make up for a pound of his mistakes. And I know you think you're making progress, but you're just giving in. When do you think it gets better?


Leave a mark, leave a mark, I'm sure he leaves a mark. It's okay, turn the lights out, you can't see it in the dark.(x2)
Track Name: Starve
The scenes, the art, we're all barking up the wrong tree. The wind, it changes, and I can feel the breeze. It's not gentle, it's harsh and cold, cast me out into the unknown. And all the hope that I had, it's all gone.



I reach for the sky, I try to make ends meet. I touch the stars, but only in my dreams. I've surrendered all control, empty shell, rip out my soul. And all the hope that I had, it's all gone.


And when our color schemes just weren't good enough, they took the pieces of our guts, painted their pictures in our blood(x2)



And when they found we just, and when they found we just, and when they found we just, and when they found we just, and when they found we just, and when they found we just...weren't good enough.
