Burner 03:08
My hands are shaking Her words are breaking My concentration and I can't tell her why Can anyone hear me? I'm almost screaming My actions are leaving a trail of dead in my wake How much more can I take? I've spent the last year stoking this blaze Burning this bridge we so carefully made I'll sacrifice my time digging these graves To make sure she leaves here unscathed I'm barely breathing From swallowing sentences And now I see these words are only wind I’ll collect the kindling To burn down these pillars of memories These burned words get silenced by the breeze I've spent the last year stoking this blaze Burning this bridge we so carefully made I'll sacrifice my time digging these graves To make sure she leaves here unscathed Can I medicate these lapses in cognition with the answers To the questions I'm not asking if you promise to be candid? I've spent the last year stoking this blaze Burning this bridge we so carefully made I'll sacrifice my time digging these graves To make sure she leaves here unscathed

Wait for me by the sea I’ll tell you everything you needed to believe Through encoded messages and texts Communication at its best, that’s me Can’t you see me smiling Through the teeth made out of wood? This feint’s not working out so good, you see I’m a bit of everything, a farce from the start You were the ruse, you were the cover, of a deception like no other You’ll know the truth when you discover I’m more than an inconvenient lover I’ll try to keep the intelligence brief This plot is not as thick as it seems to me I’ll stand here outside in the cold Waiting for an ally to relieve my post A turncoat switched at your behest Treason’s not so bad in jest, I’m told My allegiance has been sold An infiltrator in your care, a snake in the grass, I know you’re scared But I won’t succumb to fear like a shade in the dark You were the ruse, you were the cover, of a deception like no other You’ll know the truth when you discover I’m more than an inconvenient lover I’ll try to keep the intelligence brief This plot is not as thick as it seems to me Can you release me from this service, ‘Cause no one here deserves this The winds of change will clear the way And leave me with a world to pave You would bless me if you cursed this ‘Cause it’s too late to reverse this We’ve come too far to clear the stain I’ll build my house out of the waste You were the ruse, you were the cover, of a deception like no other You’ll know the truth when you discover I’m more than an inconvenient lover I’ll try to keep the intelligence brief This plot is not as thick as it seems to me

This house isn’t the same, it’s worn and rotting It’s lost its soul like its inhabitants There’s no mercy for the weak And the future’s looking bleak Wish I could say I thought that you did your best A reason you’re a coffin made of flesh Wish you could be yourself, you were never anyone else You said you’re scared you won’t see me in Heaven But I don’t see you now anyway You used to have a garden It was beautiful, I miss it every day Now I’m not saying everything was perfect It was nothing that resembled normalcy When you go in the grave, no one will call you brave ‘Cause you chose to stand by someone that destroyed us Said you just took your orders from above But you did nothing for love And you never chose your sons You said you’re scared you won’t see me in Heaven But I don’t see you now anyway You used to have a garden It was beautiful, I miss it every day You said you’re scared you won’t see me in Heaven But I don’t see you now anyway You used to have a garden It was beautiful, I miss it Every day you warmed the blade cutting our insides Every day you massacred the time we gave You used to have a garden but you destroyed it Now it’s withered away

Haunted 02:56
I've written many songs for someone else So this one that I'm writing is for you and no one else We can't look up or down, just simply straight ahead May not see the silver lining, but it's there And it's still unknown what the future holds until I take this road This could be just what I wanted It's haunted me so long There's a part of her in every song that I've ever loved Got to hand it to myself, 'cause I've done my time in hell In a state of constant want, you're all I needed Like a star that’s sadly burned out before its time I cherished every moment that it felt like you were mine The question marks are killing, it's hard to live not knowing What we could be if you'd let me love you now And it's still unknown what the future holds until I take this road This could be just what I wanted It's haunted me so long There's a part of her in every song that I've ever loved And it makes me hate myself, 'cause I put her through hell In a state of constant want, you're all I needed And it seems she's right next to me, speaking softly This could be her ghost haunting me She's haunting me This could be just what I wanted It's haunted me so long There's a part of her in every song that I've ever loved Got to hand it to myself, 'cause I've done my time in hell In a state of constant want, you're all I needed All I needed All I needed I'm not giving up 'cause you're all I needed

We built up all these bridges while our instincts tore them down Determined that the vehicles of faith won’t save us now We’ve exercised our options and conceded what we’ve lost And the only thing we sacrificed was trust Can’t seem to find a reason to go home Can you define a miracle when you see one? Will you rely upon your logic to save the day? Would it be wrong to tell the story how it took place? Man of Science, Man of Faith Our exodus is imminent, we’ll have no tale to tell We’ll poke holes in your storyline, it’s science that we sell The fiction has been written, you see the writing on the wall Still, the only thing we know for certain is that we know it all Can’t seem to find a reason to go home Can you define a miracle when you see one? Will you rely upon your logic to save the day? Would it be wrong to tell the story how it took place? Man of Science, Man of Faith All our lives we’ll try to spin the truth into a spire Then hold it up to the light, so we can see right through the lies So you want to waste your breath on someone else Peddling the same story of heaven and hell There’s no truth to your common threat Can you define a miracle when you see one? Will you rely upon your logic to save the day? Would it be wrong to tell the story how it took place? Man of Science, Man of Faith

Homecoming 02:50
Is this my fate? ‘Cause you can't walk away from those things flowing through your veins So sail away, straight in the grey Failure's where best lessons have been taught Tell me what worked out just like you thought Find something real I haven’t felt in so long Not since we all played that song, and they all sang along It made me see what I've been missing And that I've got to try so I can find some peace of mind I'll take insanity over feeling empty This is my fate ‘Cause you can't walk away from those things flowing through your veins Round one is done, when the bell is rung, I'm gonna come out swinging like never before I'd rather go out on my feet than on the floor Cause this is real, I haven’t felt it in so long Not since we all played that song, and they all sang along It made me see what I've been missing And that I've got to try so I can find some peace of mind I'll take insanity over feeling empty Even if it’s the death of me I hurt people along the way I think about it everyday And it kills, I won't be seeing their face again For seven long years I sat and thought how I could write a different plot There's only one way to make it all seem right, and that's to have this in my life Find something real I haven’t felt in so long Not since we all played that song, and they all sang along It made me see what I've been missing And that I've got to try so I can find some peace of mind I'll take insanity over feeling empty Even if it’s the death of me

This is it: the latest draft of our manuscript But as these pages fold and expose The problems I’m not willing to admit Our only tragic flaw, we’re gardeners, not architects Planting seeds only to watch them wilt We should be digging in the trench Until the structure topples just like meter in a song Skip the page when you reflect on it Still wondering, “How could this go wrong?” Victoria, tell that story I love Take it slow, you know I love the prose If the setting changed, would the ending stay the same? If the plot’s too slow, then you can choose your own Pick up the pen; this can’t be how the tale ends The twist was way too obvious for a second installment If only we had known about the tragedy and loss Whatever chapters you might chase you’ll never save me from this epilogue Victoria, tell that story I love Take it slow, you know I love the prose If the setting changed, would the ending stay the same? If the plot’s too slow, then you can choose your own Our only hope is the finale feels like home What if I break? What if I can’t compete? What if I hold up all my cards and let you see? And if I say something that makes you stay It would be a masterpiece of fiction crafted just to save face Victoria, tell that story I love Take it slow, you know I love the prose If the setting changed, would the ending stay the same? If the plot’s too slow, then you can choose your own Our only hope is the finale feels like home What if I write the words that can make this right? Would it bring all these written pages back to life?

Listen close even though I cannot speak Will you help me with these mouths to feed? Tell my mom and my dad I'm not dead yet They got me tied down to this hospital bed And I'll still tell you everything is fine Don't hold your breath, I fear this may take a while This is just evolution telling me it's time This is just evolution playing its hand, telling me it's time I still sleep with my front door unlocked To give the medics a better shot A familiar book sits beside my bed stand lamp To check myself when I can't say who I am And I'll still tell you everything is fine Don't hold your breath, I fear this may take a while This is just evolution telling me it's time This is just evolution playing its hand, telling me it's time

Passengers 03:45
I’m not lost, I’m right where I need to be Stuck in the past, like how I wear my history Chances are we’ll capsize on this break So if I’m not lost, can you point me the wrong way? I'll take my chances on his sinking ship It's better than wading In tepid waters streaked with gasoline These passengers make me feel safe at sea The band will keep playing Until the hull’s breached and we're in too deep I have no high hopes of shaking hands with sharks Or making waves while I wait to disembark So I'll hold my breath and just swim here with the bait Right here I'm lost and content way past the break I'll take my chances on his sinking ship It's better than wading In tepid waters streaked with gasoline These passengers make me feel safe at sea The band will keep playing Until the hull’s breached and we're in too deep Wanna find out the hard way? You’re gonna see what it’s like to swim alone We all carry the same weight We can be life vests for those we love I'll take my chances on his sinking ship It's better than wading In tepid waters streaked with gasoline These passengers make me feel safe at sea The band will keep playing Until the hull’s breached and we're in too deep I'm not lost I'm not lost I'm not lost I'm not lost
