Track Name: House
It's a coming of senses.
Everything else will follow the path,
That we have laid out from
Lonely nights painting everything black.
It's a waiting game.
Don't you say my name.
I'll find a better way to hold my ground.

Legs made of glass. (But I won't break)
Conviction at last. (For my own sake)
Roots are growing, growing stronger.

Creep out the door.
Silence is golden when the rain always pours.
Always hits the sunroof and nulls me to sleep,
But I'll stand in my dreams as long as I have these feet.
Oh it's a miracle,
How you stand without any bones.
How you stand without any bones.

Legs made of glass. (But I won't break)
Conviction at last. (For my own sake)
Roots are growing, growing stronger.

Are you who you appear to be?

Legs made of glass. (But I won't break)
Conviction at last. (For my own sake)
Roots are growing, growing stronger.
Track Name: Heavy Thoughts
I'm a liar.
I have lied around, done nothing for days.
Hope to someday escape this maze.
I'm a sinner.
I have breathed it in, all these faulty airs.
Choked on oxygen for days.
I'm cold as a stone.
That emotion left me all alone.
My two feet are barely on the ground,
What am I to believe in but sound?

Anchor, oh anchor.
Release me I'm ready to leave.

Can't take this anymore,
Yeah I'm ready to go.
See I've been working towards an answer
And it's starting to show.
Keep away, I'm empty. I'm drowned.
No longer will these heavy thoughts weigh me down.

Clouding up (the rain will come),
Wash away the dirt out comes the sun.
Let the light expose (no one knows),
What happens in the dark.
Miles and miles but I am never moved.
Thought the wind had knocked me out of tune.

Anchor, oh anchor.

Can't take this anymore,
Yeah I'm ready to go.
See I've been working towards an answer
And it's starting to show.
Keep away, I'm empty. I'm drowned.
No longer will these heavy thoughts weigh me down.

These heavy, heavy thoughts
Track Name: Where Has The Heart Gone
Where has the heart gone?

Burn the midnight oil.
Loss of self-control;
Where these hours grow dark.
Take a foolish step,
Past relationships;
Crave the initial spark.

Where has the heart gone?

Keep to yourself,
Had enough, had enough of:
Bound by strings to sell.
I've had enough.

I break down the railing,
I step off the track.
I follow no compass or maps of the past.

Clever words, thought misleading.
I've seen enough to know when hearts are beating.
The lock and key that were once so distant,
Have found each other over repetition.

Keep to yourself,
Had enough, had enough of:
Bound by strings to sell.
I've had enough.
Track Name: Fear
You've been swimming too deep,
Too deep in familiar waters.
Too deep in familiar waters.
We've been thinking the same;
We're as fragile as the work of a potter.
One touch in a second I forgot her.

Is your heart really safe in the hands of another?
We throw ourselves in the fray and end up closer together.
This rusty mirror's been shattered for years.
Are you sincere? Or just bandaged by fear.

Nothing's as planned anymore.
We're walking blindly in the unexplored.
Dying for something a little more.
Slowly forgetting the names you had once adorned.
You've worn it out now.
It no longer wants you around.
It no longer wants to hear anyone sing to me.

Is your heart really safe in the hands of another?
We throw ourselves in the fray and end up closer together.
This rusty mirror's been shattered for years.
Are you sincere? Or just bandaged by fear.

In the end will we all die lonely,
With eyes still set on the glass?
Just you wait for this thunderstorm to pass.
I'll be breathing fast but holding on.
Guess we learn most from our wrongs.

We learn most from our wrongs.
Track Name: Negative Me
Canvas white, I'm painting red.
Empty skies, clouds in my head.
What a waste of a beautiful thing.
Creativity's natural spring,
Negative me. Negative me.
One with the wind so I constantly sing.
Helpless to flight like a bird without wings.

Negative me. Negative me.
Though I'm cut, I think scars are what make me.

Ice cold, staring at the wall.
I've been standing far too tall. (I am)
Dead wrong.
Skipping over records like a needle,
I stumble over words that I created.
I spin out my thoughts have been racing.
Negative me. Negative me.
I'm no different from those that I scorn,
Life unblessed since the day I was born.

Negative me. Negative me.
Though I'm cut, I think scars are what make me.

I'm not running away,
I am facing the other direction.
'Cause I can't look at you become
Something I can't and will never be.
I can't and will never be gone.
And running away.
It's time we face our own reflection.
'Cause I can't look at you become
Something I can't and will never be.
I can't and will never be gone.
