Track Name: You're Tearing Me Apart, Lisa!
This is one for the ages, feeling of her so contagious,
Wash yourself in a river of my lies, wash yourself in a river of my lies.
Cleansing tides amongst thoughts you would despise.
Cleansing tides amongst thoughts you would despise.

And I, I can't, escape all your words, they're circling my head,
Falling from, cruel intentions, they're seeking me instead.
Will the clouds be my savior? They'll carry me away.
Follow me now, I'll chase you into hell.

Is this all I have to do is watch myself cut right though you?
All I have to do is watch myself cut right through you. (x2)
All I have to give is not what's waiting here for you,
My sweat, won't hit the ground before I create the stream.
Fall out of reach, come crawling back to me. (x2)

Crawl back to me.

If every word I said was every word you'd think,
You would crawl back to me.

Open your eyes and see what I have done,
This is not what I envisioned I'd become.
My final breath whispers, a soft plea.
The reason why, we can never be. (You're everything to me)

Crawl back to me, crawl back to me. (x2)
Track Name: Moments
It's be so long since I could speak my mind,
I'm too busy watching moments pass me by,
But I don't practice what I speak.
I only practice how to preach.
But maybe, we can take a drive and I can show you that dead nights can come alive.
I can show you that dead nights can come alive.

So if you let me stay awhile, I'll pull lines from your bookshelf,
Share your blurry stories, you go first,
I'll show you my demons if you show me yours.
I live my life by the windows lately; you should stop and stare out with me.
I promise I won't feel a thing, but my promises are always empty.
It's always empty here.

If I were you I wouldn't show your face around here.
Get too close, and the tailwind will tear you in two.
But if you think you can weather the storm, I'll show you how ripped roots can come alive.

How about we both take our chances? I think the odds are starting to look up.
(Let me in for just one night)
Time to cash in on the fact that I'm,
(It's hard to tell the difference between fate and luck)
So tired of dreaming alone.
(Your choices are sound but they always get the best of you)
Why not try letting go?

Speak up or let the moment pass you by. (x4)
Are you with me? Can you feel it too? Are you with me? Are you listening? (x2)

It's always empty here. (x2)
Track Name: It Takes Two To Drink
You're nothing less than fire between lines,
I'm choking on the smoke from our jestered nights,
Spitting at the thought of making a move, I'm gasping for you.
This will break me down tonight, dissonance and dizziness just don't mix,
Stuttering won't make the words come easier,
Matchstick houses just fall with the wind.

So just go and, lay back down and hide your head,
Cross your fingers and dust over your tracks,
Lead me out into the open cold.
(A shoulder to go with what beats inside your chest)
One day I hope to God someone will find me, or maybe I'll just gain some sense of sight.
(My eyes were closed for far too long)
My eyes were closed for far too long.

Exit stage right, intoxication takes their situation up the stairs.
Love or drink as it approaches, make your pick, lust glides across the floor.
A demon wingless, black, and unsung. She's a good girl she's just caught up.
I'm in for the night, the day is mine. But when our time is up who's left untouched? (x2)

So close, what happens now?
You, couldn't hear me anyway.

How can you be so blind? I'm standing right here.
Maybe if you weren't so deaf, you'd hear me screaming the past three years.
You're trapped everyday but now you're free for just a minute,
Just trust your feet and dive.
Take her hand, kiss her lips, and find out if you're alive.
Track Name: Ten Past Eight
I've come to find out a few things.
I always want to know. (x4)

Excuse the crudity but why am I so fucking sick?
They offered fruit and so I ate.
I talked until the line was dead. (x2)
My faith just ain't what it used to be.
The building stands, but I can't ignore the cracks and holes in the corners and halls.
I think I broke my back kneeling.

Okay, I guess I'll be more direct now.
If you don't want to talk, (x3)
I'll throw you some questions; you better fucking talk.

First I want to know where the fuck you went.
On vacation when Erin's friend split his head?
Why Kelly can't teach her how to pay for rent; where the fuck are you going I'm not finished yet!
How about the fact that Ashleigh couldn't sleep in her bed?
Four years, and we're lucking with the tubes through her neck.
And dad, I don't have the fucking words anymore; you're the sole reason why I don't believe anymore.
Why do people run every time I open my mouth?
Why can't I keep my fucking secrets to myself?
Why did I have to learn these words on my own? (x2)

You left; I stayed. (x4)
But now, I know. (x3)
There's lessons we need to learn on our own.

We leave marks so we can walk away; we press in hard to make sure the grooves stay.
We leave marks - the habit's in our veins.
We leave marks that's just our way.
(x2)

We get sick, but we can get better. (x3)
We're all sick, we're all sick. (x4)
We're all sick, but we can get better.
Track Name: Where Do You Draw The Line?
This is all I have; I gave you everything that I could be.
You left me with just a memory, of what we could be.

Past decisions make you uneasy tonight.
Am I just a regret to you?
Will this mean anything in the end?
Will my name breathe down your neck?

Our hearts on fire; our hands like ice.
We breathe hot lust, on the January night.
The beating in my chest, is quickly keeping time.
So we ran across rooftops without a sound; burst through the back door, your clothes fell to the ground.
The crime scene was clean until we but the caution tape.

Liars, aren't we all?
Fake the trip and sell the fall.
It's the only part we've ever practiced playing.

Speak up now if you want to hear me.
Fingers through my hair if you want to feel me.
Whisper in my ear, if you want to hear the end.

And I don't know what makes me sicker - your head tucked in his shoulder or the unsettled liquor.
I'm a hypocrite, I know I am but my composure is slipping and I'm losing my head.
Won't find the staircase; won't find the door.
Instead I'll find my hand inside another woman's clothes.
And my tongue instead of treason will just consummate my lies.
Tracing poison on her skin, I'll drive the knife into my own sides.
I won't sleep tonight, instead I'll pass the time swallowing the fact that you make me feel fucking sick to my stomach.
And I'd give anything to hear you scream my name.
You mean everything to, everything to me.
Everything to, everything to me.

But all you do is close your eyes.
Track Name: Moments Acoustic

But I don't practice what I speak.

I only practice how to preach.

I can show you that dead nights can come alive.
