Track Name: Breathing In
I stopped wondering
Why you're still around
Why my hearts still beating
And my feet still on the ground
When the wall comes down
The life I breathe into
As long as you're around
You know I'll need you need you

You're the best of me
You're the most of me
You're the wall around me
You're my reason to grow
You keep me breathing in
My heart beating, and
You're the body
And you're the soul
You're the body
And you're the soul
You're the body
And you're the soul

A breath of life
A reason to live
Breath from you I take
Becomes a wall that will never give
Breathing in
And knowing there's a reason to
As long as you're around
You know I need you need you

You're the best of me
You're the most of me
You're the wall around me
You're my reason to grow
You keep me breathing in
My heart beating, and
You're the body
And you're the soul
You're the body
And you're the soul
You're the body
And you're the soul

You're breathing out
I'm breathing in

You're the best of me
You're the most of me
You're the wall around me
You're my reason to grow
You keep me breathing in
My heart beating, and
You're the body
And you're the soul
You're the body
And you're the soul
You're the body
And you're the soul
Track Name: On Top of the World
So, I've figured out the world
And how it all really works
Specs of consciousness collide and crawl
On this earth

It's infinity, it won't end
It never will begin
What is has never been
It'll never be again

Is this how I start my day?
Beneath the words I can't begin to say
Underneath the problems, the problems that I've made
On top of the world, I'm on top of the world today

With utter patience, I
Am waiting here for time
To tell me why I live this life
And why am I not surprised?!

Because I never fit your shoes,
Or tied into your noose
I'm not falling in your footsteps
I'm not following your rules!

Is this how I start my day?
Beneath the words I can't begin to say
Underneath the problems, the problems that I've made
I'm on top of the world, I'm on top of the world today

I guess I am whom I portray
I guess I choose to be this way
And if I'm nothing in the longer run
I'm on top of the world today

On top of the world today
On top of the world
On top of the world
On top of the world
Track Name: Here Now
Here come the clouds before the rain
Here comes the day before it breaks
Here comes the storm to wash you away
Here comes the past, and it's here to stay

Here are the words that mean nothing now
Here goes the light behind the clouds
Here I am after the trumpet sounds
You leave me here to take the long way out

I'll take the long way out
I'll be the only one
I'll be here without you now
I'll be here without you now

Here is over and I can't move on
Here is dusk before another dawn
Here is so short but seems to take so long
Here is now and now is already gone

Here is shorter now than all the rest
Here are the times I seem to know the best
Here is now, and now there's nothing left
Here are the answers that you never could have guessed

I'll take the long way out
I'll be the only one
I'll be here without you now
I'll be here without you now

Lightning hits before it sounds
Can you hear me yet?! Can you hear me now?!
Here is the puddle that has gathered up
Hear the thunder now long after lightning's struck

I'll take the long way out
I'll be the only one
I'll be here
I'll be here now
Track Name: Your Blind Eyes
I recognize you like the back of my hand
When I'm in some hell of mine, you'd understand

I could imagine, you could lie
I could be store-bought, but you wouldn't buy
Cease in a second, to throw me away
Your friendship's a burden, but I'm glad that you stayed

Don't open your eyes
I see you just fine
I know what's mine
Don't open your eyes

I love the irony that plagues your broken mind
I'd lift you to heaven, and you'd question why

I could imagine, you could lie
I could be store-bought, but you wouldn't buy
Cease in a second, to throw me away
Your friendship's a burden, but I'm glad that you stayed

Don't open your eyes
I see you just fine
I know what's mine
Don't open your eyes

It's easy to love me
I need love
It's easy to love me
I need love
love...love...love
Track Name: Salty Sunburn
I'm not early
No you're not late
But the world is round
In miles of ground
There's sandy waters
And salty sunburn
But life is grand
Life is grand

I'm sitting shallow on a salty shoreline
With time to spare, but none to share
As long as I'm not close to you
I'm all by myself -don't need your help

Life is perfect in my own river
On my own land, 'cause life is grand
Life is perfect in my own river
On my own land, 'cause life is grand

The muddy banks are always open
to a lending hand, 'cause life is grand
And I hope I'm dead before tomorrow
I'm lifting time without my mind

And I'm not early
No you're not late
But the world is round
In miles of ground
As long as I'm not close to you
I'm all by myself -I don't need your help

Life is perfect in my own river
On my own land, 'cause life is grand
Life is perfect in my own river
On my own land, 'cause life is grand

Dead, the rest is dead, the rest is dead, the rest is dead
Track Name: Scheduled Spontaneity
See your eyes pouring through the skies
You're the master of disguise
Thin line 'tween right and wrong
You know you're right when you can't move on
Favorite secrets soon to be sung
Sing me a song about saving someone's
Life living likely, lonely, and lame
In solitude slowly seeking some shame
Saying something to someone who's soon to be dead
Dying in misery. shoot her in the head
It's the end and it's where you belong
It's the end and it's where you belong

It's a dead end again, and I'm not to blame

A one, two, three, four, five, six, seven
Haters, forgivers, when dyers are livers
And a lie isn't truthful, but truth isn't useful
To useless beginners, get taught to be winners, but a
Loser's no cooler than soul sucking sinners
So, speak in spontaneity
Assume a fortunate destiny
I hope you know what's good and bad
What's good just makes me fucking laugh
It's a good, good, good old song
It's a dead end now and it's where you belong

It's a dead end again, and I'm not to blame
Track Name: Lonesome Days
I never said it was impossible
I never said it was invincible
My lonesome days can never bother you
My lonesome days can never bother you

Glimpse of the city
Get up. Get busy
Said we don't have all day
And you don't need to spit in it
It's an attitude problem you seem to have
What you spit in my ears is (really) bla bla bla

You st-st-stutter every time you speak
Because you're so, so stupid you can't even see
I (really) said that I was sorry and words don't mean a thing
You (really) left anyways as insulted as can be

You're full of lies impending
You cheat, tease, and steal
I'll never listen to your words until your words are real
So, (really) blah, blah, blah, blah
Words don't mean a thing
And (really) ha ha ha ha happy as can be

I never said it was impossible
I never said it was invincible
My lonesome days can never bother you
My lonesome days can never bother you

I never wanted to know
I never wanted to know anyways
I never wanted to know
I never wanted to know anyways

Blah, blah, blah, blah
Words don't mean a thing
And (really) ha ha ha ha happy as can be

I never said it was impossible
I never said it was invincible
My lonesome days can never bother you
My lonesome days can never bother you
Track Name: Things
Things shine brightly, and things are dull.
Things are empty, and things are full.
Things get better, or so they say.
The best things hurt before they fade away.

Anything's better than watching things go.
It might get better, but no one knows.
Things aren't listening to the things I've said.
These words are dead to me. Things are dead.

I seem to get things. I never asked.
All the worst things have come and passed.
This is the best thing that I can find.
It's my everything. It's my life.
All the best things make things alright.

Vivid things flash through my mind.
Things stand still to catch up with time.
Things are horrid, and things aren't right.
But the best things always change my mind.

Nothing's perfect; I've come to know.
Things fall in pieces before they grow.
There's two sides to all things, 'cause all things change.
Despite things, nothing stays the same.

I seem to get things I never asked.
All the worst things have come and passed.
This is the best thing that I can find.
It's my everything. It's my life.
All the best things make things alright.

Things are enemies and fake allies.
Things aren't honest. Things aren't right.
Trust in nothing, 'cause nothing's real
It's honest enough to have disappeared.

Things communicate but misinterpret.
Things cause wars for things not worth it.
Things take lives for thrills on purpose.
Nothing's perfect, but nothing's worthless.

Everything lacks what everything wants.
I want nothing more than you to prove me wrong.
We can rid these things of their emptiness.
With their simple truths, we'll have everything we'll ever need.
It's all we'll ever need.
Anything and everything 'cause everything's something
Track Name: Forever Again With You
Don't look back into a mirror of emptiness
We'd both have to live if life was infinite
And if this were true I'd live again and so would you
If this were true I'd live again with you

Won't live for anything at all
You won't be missed if you're never lost
Hands will turn for the end on the wall
It's the inner workings of the ageless clock

You may be tired of life
But you could stay this time
You may be tired
But you're awake and you're alive

You catch my eye a little late
If I'm on time, then time has changed
Life went by
It saw your face
Life went by again

Won't live for anything at all
You won't be missed if you're never lost
Hands will turn for the end on the wall
It's the inner workings of the ageless clock
Track Name: Right of Ways
Somehow, some way the leader escapes
And that's why I can't stay
Last night was no memory; It was no dream
It was more real than I know how to be

I can't recall
I can't relate
I won't be banking off of center stage
I can't rely on the right of ways

What's the use of living on?

Where's the right side of the story
I feel it, and I'm moving on
Stagnant frailty of mourning
I feel it, and I'm moving on

Made to take sides
Made to make it right
It's not justified
The right of ways

I can't recall
I can't relate
I won't be banking off of center stage
I can't rely on the right of ways

Where's the right between the lines?

Why does all the weight bog me down?
A pass beside me and it's all wrong
Shallow is forever, and I'm moving on

Made to take sides
Made to make it right
It's not justified
The right of ways

I can't recall
I can't relate
I won't be banking off of center stage
I can't rely on the right of ways

Where's the right? Justice decides
It's just another dawn
Where's the right? Where's the right?
What's the use of living on?

Where's the right between the lines?
