CROSS YOUR HEART AND HOPE TO DIE I won't be long I just remembered something You should go on before the light behind you fades Such a shame about the weather it feels like it's never going to change Unbreakable what's already broken And so it goes not a word is spoken And the knife gets twisted deeper with a grin And it doesn't feel like anything Begin to slowly fade Such a shame about the weather it feels like it's never going to change So all along you wanted something And all along I didn't care I don't blame you for never being there All together now we crumble into this

Sick of Me 03:31
SICK OF ME So here I go again falling headfirst into this descent I've tried to shed this skin but somehow I keep slipping back into it Build a wall to stop these demons Break my bones and I can't feel it Late again Late again Shut my eyes to kill these reasons Boil my blood to keep from healing Late again Late again Obligatory grin sometimes its too exhausting to fit in Why should I pretend that I need everybody to be a friend? Build a wall to stop these demons Break my bones and I can't feel it Late again Late again Shut my eyes to kill these reasons Boil my blood to keep from healing Late again Late again

INCOMMUNICADO Did you get the message? Somebody killed the messenger I guess We may never speak again But it seems like we're getting closer It seems like we're getting closer It seems like we're getting over It seems like we're going under Thank you for your patience please continue holding Your estimated waiting time is something only used to discourage you Incommunicado can't hear what they're saying Shouldn't someone tell them there's no point in waiting? We've got to bury this It's time to move on

Polish 03:36
POLISH Garbage in, garbage out I can't stop this ship from sinking So full of purpose So full of meaning I can't stop this chest from beating And there's no air here I'm barely breathing If I lost control please protect these things I need to be whole I thought that there'd be more than this This drowning feeling less and less And all of the shiny polish on this soul! In spite of these best intentions You don't have to If you don't want to Just remember, “you're only as good as what you once were” But don't be so sure If I lost control please protect these things I need to be whole I thought that there'd be more than this This drowning feeling less and less And all of the shiny polish on this soul! Garbage in, garbage out
5.
Absolution 03:36
ABSOLUTION It's not as easy getting numb Deny the thing that you've become You'll be sorry for the things you've said and done Take a good look at yourself You're just like everybody else We make excuses for the things we can't outrun If everything I've ever done was wrong then thanks to you for pointing out my glaring and my smallest imperfections Let this be a lesson I was only trying to set things right There's no absolution There is only will and means selling faith to whoever will buy I guess it's easier for some To just ignore this droning hum But you'll be sorry for the things you've said and done The true believers tell themselves they're not like anybody else Do you believe that you've been true with anyone? If everything I've ever done was wrong then thanks to you for pointing out my glaring and my smallest imperfections Let this be a lesson I was only trying to set things right There's no absolution There is only will and means selling faith to whoever will buy Maybe I'm uncomfortable Maybe this got old Impatient and insufferable Feels like everything is wrong

Half Asleep 03:45
HALF ASLEEP Wake up now this time you've been hiding underneath the covers of your bed again It's alright I thought that I could make this into anything I wanted Suppose that I've forgotten how to dream? We could steal a little time away And think of something more to say to make it seem like it's alright I thought that I might feel something different this time instead I don't feel anything at all Are you awake or am I talking to myself? Because I was hoping you weren't listening You're such a fake and I don't know if I can tell I wish that I could fall asleep again Wake up now this time You're not fooling anyone pretending that you're still asleep But I don't mind You said if I woke up then I might never be able to get myself to fall asleep again Are you awake or am I talking to myself? Because I was hoping you weren't listening You're such a fake and I don't know if I can tell I wish that I could fall asleep again
7.
Bleeding Out 03:36
BLEEDING OUT If all of this and all of that means nothing It's such a waste of time Indifferent, unkind We pride ourselves in knowing that we're better than everyone like you Which one then am I? I could never care enough I could never give enough I could never bleed enough to please you You need everything A give and take through waking hours of dreaming Building confidence Preparing for the worst So off we go intent on getting somewhere Anywhere but here as long as you're there first I could never care enough I could never give enough I could never bleed enough to please you You need everything Fill it up until it's overflowing So full that you can't breathe Suffocate the dream It's not enough to satisfy the aching And so relentlessly devouring everything I could never care enough I could never give enough I could never bleed enough to please you You need everything
8.
SAY GOODBYE AGAIN Another lie on lips that say "This might be a mistake but it's familiar" It doesn't matter anyway We'd still be heading nowhere fast I should've stayed away from you I almost never do the things that I'm supposed to do I should just stay away from you That's why I don't And do we get what we deserve? And if we're satisfied then what comes after? You'll never know until you learn it's a beautiful disaster I should've stayed away from you I almost never do the things that I'm supposed to do I should just stay away from you That's why I don't

MELANCHOLICS ANONYMOUS I will come back to my senses I will try and start again It's almost like I never even took a single step I thought that I was getting somewhere I hadn't even left I'll be OK I will be saved I will pull myself together I will come up with a plan It's almost like I never even took a single step I thought that I was getting somewhere I hadn't even left I'll be OK I will be saved Do you know my name? It's written in my breath on the windowpane I will remember what I'm made of I will turn it all around It's almost like I never even took a single step It felt like I was getting somewhere I hadn't even left But I'll be OK I will be saved Do you know my name? It's written in my breath on the windowpane

Shine Box 03:51
SHINE BOX Dead on? disappointing You're wrong I'm only halfway come undone A sting that hasn't stung but waiting Go on suppose me You can't disappoint me You've already won when I was never in your game And we can't fall down if we don't stand but there's no room in here to kneel May the sun shine warm on your face Until we meet again, God keep you And there's no reward for good intentions but there's a path that leads you down May the sun shine warm on your face Until we meet again, God keep you All along still hoping there's a chance of destroying any glimpse of faith The truth is what we know to be true And we can't fall down if we don't stand but there's no room in here to kneel May the sun shine warm on your face Until we meet again, God keep you And there's no reward for good intentions but there's a path that leads you down May the sun shine warm on your face Until we meet again, God keep you
