Track Name: Good Intentions
I woke up today after 8 hours of sleep exhausted and spent like my adolescent streak
(maybe some day I'll be young again)
It's getting so hard to do the right thing, I'm coming apart at the silver lining
(maybe one day I'll sleep when I'm dead)
Oh I've got no place to go this place has taken everything from me and I couldn't feel more alone

Most nights, I end up hating all the things that I've become/are coming undone
Nothing changes, nothing gets better. what have I become?

Turned my youth into a paycheck, blew it all on growing up and spent it all too fucking quick
Is this what it's all cracked up to be? good intentions giving way to loneliness (so what left for me?)

Most nights, I end up hating all the things that I've become/are coming undone
Nothing changes, nothing gets better. what have I become?

Is this what it's all cracked up to be? (sleepless nights and apathy)
I lost a year to the routine. am I the man I thought I'd be

Most nights, I end up hating all the things that I've become/are coming undone
(turned my youth into a paycheck and I'm never growing up)
Nothing changes, nothing gets better. What have I become?

Is this what its all cracked up to be?
Good intentions giving to loneliness
Most nights, I'm coming undone.
Track Name: Landmarks
Is it a lie to say I'm happy with the way things all turned out?
and looking back I'm proud of where we've been
I had that same dream (where I know how the puzzle piece fits)
But I just cant reach it anymore

It's getting harder to keep my head out of water
accept that I have grown
I've been chasing pavements nightly
searching for some clarity
and a place to call my home

Its sink or swim with concrete at my feet
(head underwater)
I wonder when the end and I will meet
Every night that I cannot sleep it gets harder and harder to chase my dreams
(When they're fucking chasing me)

It's getting harder to keep my head out of water
accept that I have grown
I've been chasing pavements nightly
searching for some clarity
and a place to call my home

I know I'm over my head, I know I'll never relax
If every step I take is just 2 steps back
Time is wasted away spent swallowed in fear
Will I be stuck in my head or will I disappear?

It's getting harder to keep my head out of water
accept that I have grown
I've been chasing pavements nightly
searching for some clarity
and a place to call my home
Track Name: Wandering
I'm tired of living like we're kids and getting so much less than what I give
And I wander these same streets every other night just wasting all my time (wasting all my time)

Will I live to see another day or will this fucking pressure bury me?

I feel the weight on my shoulders, feet sink an inch into the ground with every year older. am I losing ground?
trouble seems to find me I can't run away from mistakes I let them define me.
not lost, not found

Will I live to see another day or will this fucking pressure bury me?
All my blues are quickly turning grey. I'll take the blame for everything

I guess something is better than nothing
Take it or leave it
I guess most things are better than nothing
Maybe one day I'll see it
I guess nothing could be better than somethings
I'll take the blame for everything
Track Name: Hope
Life's been falling out of place
I've got to find some sort of grace
Meeting time after time with my inner me
Letting the worst get the better part of me
Can you see?

I hope this somehow gets to you
I'm so far away
Caught up in my own way

Sweet son of mine one day you will understand true love
Tell that to the poor boy who bled out his heart and cracked his teeth
Falling for a dream that didn't mean a thing

I hope this somehow gets to you
I'm so far away
Caught up in my own way
I pray you some how find a place
Settle and give in
Grant this only wish

Don't you go write me off just yet. I've been taking this on for far too long
Telling my insides where they need not be, it's not really hard to see

Life's been falling out of place
I've got to find some sort of grace.
Track Name: Redondo (feat. Anthony of Seasons Change)
Honestly I don’t know where I’m going but I’ll miss you when I get there
There may not be a highway that can bring you to me
(buried alive by every road sign but I need something to call mine)

I hear the places I haven’t been calling my name
And now I dream of all the roads and maps and how I’m never coming back

The days are cold I feel alone and everything gets old
When nights don’t change I feel ashamed of how I got so old

I hear the places I haven’t been calling my name
And now I dream of all the roads and maps and how I’m never coming back

I’ve seen this place in my dreams that everyone says I’ll never see
If that's the case well then I’ll pray that I die in my sleep
Track Name: Fireflies
Everyday is nothing new to me.
I'm looking forward to a time
When I can tell you that I don't miss a thing
About your smile or your stupid face,
The jokes weren't funny but I laughed anyway
I laughed anyway

I'm hating life and how you ruined me
Ever since you crawled into my heart
And dug your way into my brain

(Get the fuck out!)

Liar, liar you set my hopes on fire
When everything I love comes crashing down I swear
I'm trying harder and harder
To get through this smarter
Don't meet me in montauk
Cause I will be long gone

Used up like a toy
Thrown in the chest with all the other boys
But you never locked it
Got out when I had a chance
Built a plan I could withstand
It was never worth it
You were never worth it

And now you ruined me

Liar, liar you set my hopes on fire
When everything I love comes crashing down I swear
I'm trying harder and harder
To get through this smarter
Don't meet me in montauk
Cause I will be long gone

I will stay far away

With the bones that I break and the fingers I bruise
From the tip of my tongue to the heels of my shoes
My days have been turning from grey to blue
This is me forgetting you

For every night we could have slept
We were busy making promises I knew we'd regret
I'll let the last words you said
Burn like a jar of fireflies inside my head
Track Name: Daisy
3 o' clock in the morning
I should be asleep
but these dreams come without warning
I'm another promise you couldn't keep
divide the time we spend behind enemy lines
where I'll never coincide

I try to find the words to say but nothing comes to mind
I don't ever want to feel this way again

I'd part the tide for you
But you never let the light shine through
Well feelings change, people grow
I just thought I'd let you know
you won't find me waiting, keeping hold

I can't shake this sinking feeling when I'm awake
(I'll sleep tonight no matter what you say)
I don't want to be a back pocket memory
(I know you'll sleep tonight with or without me)

Now I'm 6ft under the weight of the world
and your body on my grave
sent up the river, you watched me float away
you are the daisies on my grave.
Track Name: Giving Way
I've lived through the longest nights in my entire life
Sitting in this cold room, waiting for the sun to rise
(I have nothing) left to smile about
So let me fall asleep, it rains here all the time now

You waved 'hello' in my dream again
Am I awake or sleepwalking?

Remember when we said we'd live forever?
Can we take it back (I wanna take it back)
It seems like we're always
Running out of time, second guessing wrong from right
And how I'll keep up when I'm so close to coming undone

I've seen the light of day and it's not looking very bright for me
Is it too late to save my own neck or am I to be another wreck?
We were born daydreamers turned into gravediggers
Collapsing brick by brick

Remember when we said we'd live forever?
Can we take it back (I wanna take it back)
It seems like we're always
Running out of time, second guessing wrong from right
And how I'll keep up when I'm so close to coming undone

Talking to myself again
In words I cannot comprehend
Falling in and out of sleep
Miles from recovery
Am I awake or sleep walking?
Will you visit my dreams again
I just need to hear you say
Someday I will be okay

I think I'm losing it
These walls are closing in
I won't let this
Tear me apart again

Remember when we said we'd live forever?
Can we take it back (I wanna take it back)
It seems like we're always
Running out of time, second guessing wrong from right
And how I'm keeping up when I've already come undone
