Track Name: 40
I've got some hell to pay
for heaven that I’ve taken
My conscience melts away
with empty bottles breaking
Can't count the days that I’ve wasted
or find the poison I’ve tasted
It's all been drained in my name
what a complacent desperation

I became your friend
when my will was weakened
but you strengthened me with words I don't remember speaking
And these thoughts in my head
cry out impatient
because I’ve left them all to drown in my liquid elation

We're all angels at heart
the kind that lose their wings
it's a sin it's a sign
I don't know what you're saying to me, but it's fine

How did all of this start?
First I lost what I had
now I'm losing my mind
I'm just a lost piece of nothing for no one to find
It's fine.
Track Name: Shudder
I found myself down the road
quiet as a ghost
In the shadows all alone
I trembled when I spoke
“Where’d you think I’d end up falling like that?”
Cold face to concrete and a wounded back
Oh how she loves you and she tells you to stay
But she’s not talking now she’s miles away
So who are you? I’m nothing new
A ceiling cracking to cave
Slowly used, coldly forgotten, thrown away

You took my sadness from me
and clenched it behind your back until it couldn’t breathe
It’s my gravest memory
And then there came a night when
it turned into a knife you wouldn’t let me see
You stabbed it right back into me

Am I the bloody mess you’ve been dying to see
climbing the stairs up to your balcony?
Too many nights I took that flight
but you weren’t waiting for me
Just my own ghost in the doorway
telling me to leave

You took my sadness from me
and clenched it behind your back until it couldn’t breathe
It’s my gravest memory
And then there came a night when
it turned into a knife you wouldn’t let me see
You stabbed it right back into me

And then my blood ran cold to your steady hands
and read your palms and tried to understand
But it all ran out and washed away
in your eyes as they cried to a dead man’s face
Shuddering, shuddering

Will it be someone else tonight?
Is there a reason why you keep me in your heart with veins to wander?
Would it be easier if I could find my way into your mind and sacrifice myself in your honor?

Track Name: Regal
I chase the sky for answers and all it does is rain
but I could never complain
And it’s a long ride; everybody gets tired
So when I fall asleep it will be okay
At least she’s somewhere safe
My passenger side has been empty
and my conscious mind has left me speeding towards a ditch on the side of the road
but the crash won’t wake me so I’ll never know
if I could have caught up to the way she changed her mind
Would there have been a sun to clear the sky and strike us blind?

No it’s a subtle disdain that paints her emotions
Yea, she’s set in her ways and I’ve been holding on to what I can’t save
I’d say it’s getting late and I’m all out of patience
I left her only the blame because there’s a drive outside I think I should take

I thought I knew the answers
until I went insane and
drove up an endless wall of pavement
Too scared to leave it all, to leave at all
Can’t even stand to walk away, can’t even crawl

No it’s a subtle disdain that paints her emotions
Yea, she’s set in her ways and I’ve been holding on to what I can’t save
I’d say it’s getting late and I’m all out of patience
I left her only the blame because there’s a drive outside I think I should take

Headlights find me
Sirens read your face and grace the warning sign while madness flashes in our eyes
The short time they’re still open
Fingertips come to close them and now pronounce us man and woman
breathless at the scene

No it’s a subtle disdain that paints her emotions
Yea, she’s set in her ways and I’m longing

Tell me baby,
will you miss the way I drive?
Engine dying
with the heart inside alive
If not forever, then just today
because I could never just drive away
Track Name: Ode
Can you hide it in your soul,
can you carry it away before it hits you?
Will you make yourself unknown for just another day
behind the dead truth?
I know how it’s been killing you
So what are you going to do?
Is it something that you know you know you’ll never say
unless you tell me?
A secret that you hold
A promise that you’ll break
So overwhelming
Take anything that you want from me
Take all
Take everything that you want and leave

But first, bring me your tears to wipe away
So you can disappear again into the night to play
But you’ll return with the risen sun
sadly shining, finding what you’ve done

I’ve been empty as your room
and the bed where we don’t sleep
Kept awake inside a tomb
with heavy eyes too red to weep
I’m frozen in your spell
and shackled legs won’t let me leave
Starve me while I starve myself
long enough to set them free
I’m a window sitter aching
to the night and what it brings
A brittle patience that is breaking
while the nightingale sings
a somber elegy before
the cold air shows me my last breath
Nameless here forevermore
bearing the bony hands of death
Take all that you want from me
Take all
Take everything that you want and leave
Take all
Track Name: Night Terror
Last night rain filled my head,
the streets flooded, and I stood there screaming
I scratched until I bled
poisoning the water with a darker meaning
I need something
What will I be if I stop breathing?
Give me something
I won’t wake up if I’m not sleeping

Is there a reason to remember
when everything is forced to fade?
I don’t want to live forever
but I don’t want to die today
Too many times I have said never
but what will I say when I’m dead?
I guess the past is a dying ember
So I’ll just burn what lies ahead
Let it burn to red

My heart is caving in
choking on a thick black poison air
With walls stale and thin
Those who walk this path in peace beware
Sin stained eyes open
holding the world in an angry glare
I can’t keep it in
Nobody knows so save all of your prayers
and leave this behind me

Is there a reason to remember
when everything is forced to fade?
I don’t want to live forever
but I don’t want to die today
Too many times I have said never
but what will I say when I’m dead?
I guess the past is a dying ember
So I’ll just burn what lies ahead

In the back of my mind she’s always smiling
hiding behind every painful day
and in her eyes the sun is rising
but I can’t see it I’m too far away

Who’s gonna look around
when everyone’s been drowned
I feel the terror is growing
Who’s gonna hear the sound
of honest eyes let down
There’s really no way of knowing
