Track Name: TWO YEARS
two years ago i saw your whole life break
two years ago i let my conscience take
the last two years i lived my life
the next two years I'll do it right
a thousand miles between the thing I fear
i've made my choice to make my conscience clear
i'm not a fool. you aren't a dear
and brokenness has left me here

i believe in nothingness
hurt and pain and some regret
all the things i've worked to get
are never gonna be all mine

for the love of god make up your mind
take your love and take some time
trash the ones you left behind
'cause they would do the same to you

where do we go when we all disappear
where do when we go where we go

gone. you'll be gone. you'll be gone. you'll be gone. you'll be
gone. you'll be gone. you'll be gone. you'll be gone.
Track Name: FOREST FIRES
you cried when you died
just like your father did
you walk among the trees
in the night
you started forest fires
like your brother did
you snarled like a dog
in a fight
look at the things you've done
are you the only one
it's raining and raging and you have been waiting
to get up and run free and run

you really lost your mind
just like your mother did
you couldn't save yourself
but you tried
you threw it on the fire
just like your sister did
you howled like a wolf
in the night

how could you be such a fool
everything i did for you
i've played the part. i played it cool.
burn it down but not for you.
Track Name: WHAT ELSE MATTERS
WHAT ELSE MATTERS
tell me you're holy our body's a mission
your past is a history minus revisions
say that you're living you're barely breathing what were you reading like it really matters
why are you always acting dumb?

you try to survive on crippled affection
talk about love but you lack the conviction
you fall into pieces and call it a process.
you fear the commitment and call it all nonsense

tell me what you wanna be
lie it all in front of me
take it with amphetamines
cut my hair and let me be

your love is a mirror the people are faceless
doors have been boarded we live in the basements
pry open the windows clothes are in tatters
get out of the city see what else matters

I can't wait to get you outta my life
outta my heart and outta my mind
taking my love taking my time
breaking my heart and walking the line
Track Name: HEART, KID
you're a little heart breaker and you're already taken but my blood is burning for you
my hand on the window and i'm pushing as hard as i can but i can't get to you
right from the start you were giving your heart to the ones who will love you and always will throw you away
breaking down is an art in the back of your car making out in an emotional way

i'm the man that never gets shaken
bow down to all the temptation
made plans but now i'm gonna break them
a moment of doubt and life of hesitation
don't make amends 'cause i'll break them
less talk and more dedication
take my hand and learn to be patient
open your eyes because i'm not faking

love. hate. heart break.
turn around and walk away
mistake. heart ache.
say the things that i wouldn't say
believe in me
say the things you wanna see
don't laugh. don't break.
don't fear the mess we made.

it's not a lie unless you make it a lie
what is love when it's making you cry?
it's not right because we say "it's alright."
what is love if it can't keep us alive.
Track Name: FOR EVERYONE WHO STILL BELIEVES IN LOVE
Suddenly when the whole world falls apart
and the static come rolling in from the stereo
if there's hope in your heart
is there hole in you heart
if there's hope in your heart
then there's hope for little hearts
if you hold your body close to me
i wanna feel the flames burning between you and me
if you hold your body close
i wanna feel the flames burning higher and higher.
i don't wanna see you around here
i don't wanna see you no more
walking these streets alone
there's a hole in the cloud where we slept around
where we slept around.
there's a hole in the cloud where you slept around
where you slept around.
Track Name: TUNNEL VISION HIGHWAY
i wrap my broken heart inside your love
in an ocean of trust on a mountain of drugs.
i left my fragile heart inside your chest
with your velvet touch on your broken crutch
i broke my arms around your fragile heart
on a highway at night in my fortress of light
I'll love you every single day of my life
until the light goes out. you're the light of my light

wherever you go, i will follow.
Track Name: HEARTS IN UNISON
If you want to watch your heart grow cold
if you want to watch your heart grow cold
if you want to watch your heart grow cold
just walk away.

if you only knew my heart wasn't true
if you only knew my heart
if you only knew my heart wasn't true
i was lying i didn't want to hurt you

There's a lie telling me where I'm going
there's a lie telling me I'm falling
There's a light telling me where I'm going
There's a light telling me we were falling
out of love, love. love.

And you wouldn't know love if it stood here
singing this song to you right now.
Track Name: WRECKLESS
say when so i can know
it's a calm without a storm
i swear i'd do much more
i'm as reckless as i am poor
I can be a little bit faithless
i can be a little bit graceless
you saw me when i was faceless
i keep screaming, "i can't take this"
and so we broke those ties
and we left it all behind
you chose to cross that line
dropped that phone and let it die
this ain't a part of my life
these are the lies i was told
are you really telling me now,
"it's just the way life unfolds"

this is not my life
this is what i'm told
i've missed all you've seen
it's the way so it goes
say what you will
i'll follow you
i swear to you
i will not be reckless with your love

everything feels the same cause my love was a simple game.
you're soaking up in the rain. running out of things for me to say.
Track Name: GROWING SPLENDID
I don't talk to ghosts
I can still see them
i can hear them laugh at me
when i'm talking to the ceiling
i don't believe it's cold
i don't believe it's winter
you can't hear the branches breaking
i can't hear them either
do you believe in love
do you believe i'm loving
do you believe in anything
is there anything worth believing
do you believe in trust
do you believe i'm trusting
won't you tell me anything
well, i don't believe you.

bow your heads and say your prayers
comb your fingers through your hair
death and gold will fill our lawns
while leaves and pyres burn through dawn
moonlight dancing on our graves
skin of autumn wrapped in grey
see your breath on window panes
let's fold our hands and dream of grace
Track Name: TRUE LOVE AT FULL SPEED
if i told you i loved you
would it matter if it came undone
could i state my intentions
could it be that i'm a fool again

i gave and i gave and i gave and i gave and i
gave and i gave and i gave and i gave
you take and you take and you take and you take and you
take and you take and you take and you take

love is just a shackle i see
holding you down tonight.
love is just a waste of your time
if you don't learn how make it right.
i'm saving my love for someone

i don't want to be a martyr
for your love
i want to be
someone you need
to be honest with
i already know
my heart is on hold
i'm willing to wait and to wait and to wait and to wait

love is just a shackle i see
holding you down tonight.
love is just a waste of your time
if you don't learn how make it right.
i'm saving my love for someone
