Track Name: The Poems Aren't Enough
The poems aren't enough
The letters don't hold up
My life is not enough
And now I'm all tripped up
Time is not a friend
If we're lonely in the end
I would have been all that I could
But now I'm done
My life is not enough
And now I'm all tripped up
Track Name: We Only Make One Sound
When our bones turn to dust
When there is nothing left of us
All of the shadows in the dark
Will simply start to fall apart
When our souls float around
They'll find each other off the ground
Sing songs, dance and fuck around
They'll only make one sound...
Track Name: Tied and Bound
I can't take it in
I can't turn it down
I can't bring it up
I can't turn it off
I can't breath at all
I can't see at all
I can't take it all
I can't give it all
I can't make it up
It's always around
I can't slow it down
I'm tied and I'm bound
I can't calm it down
I can't drive it out
I can't shine it out
I can't make it stop

I fear I've lost it all,
The darkness and the fall

Now and then I pretend
I'm alright, no more fight
Hold on tight to the light
Tied and Bound

I can't see at all
I can't breath at all
I can't speak at all
I can't dream at all
I can't stand up tall
I can't fake it all
I can't wait to fall
I've lost it all
I can't break it up
I can't turn it down
I can't feel at all
I can't stop it all
I can't heal at all
I hate it all
Track Name: Arranged Thought
I guess my time it came and went
I am still here, but the money's spent
We try so hard to recreate
I tried so hard, but it's too late
And now that all that I have done
Is the sum of what I've become
Please forgive all of my mistakes
I want to fix all that I break

I just can't take it anymore...

I guess my time it came and went
I am still here, but the money's spent
I swore that I would be alright
I started searching for a light
And now that all that I have done
Is the sum of what I've become
I am looking for another way
In time I will destroy this place
Destroy this place
Destroy the face...

I just can't take it anymore...
Track Name: Walking Ways
I don't know if I can ever recover
I don't think I could ever love another
And all those times I out and found out
That there would be nothing to gain with closure
And if I ever find myself without you
No mountains in hell could keep me from this truth
You are inside me, my breath pulses through you
You are my blood and now you control me

And if I ever got a chance to take back
Everything in my life I wouldn't do that
The history that brought me to you
And woke me up from a dream I could not bear
The kind where you never get out
It's the kind you never get out
And now I finally found my way out
Of the kind you never get out

Now that our atoms have changed themselves to one
There is no need for the skin that surrounds my bones
They're breaking up and dissolving to pieces
My blood is your blood and now we are gone

My blood is your blood
Track Name: Crooked Crown
There is an answer
I see right before my eyes
Remove your potion
No tricks will ever set me free
I want to suffer
I need to bear it all inside
I want to crumble
I'd like to die trapped in my mind

All the walls are chemicals created to build upon
A sickening thought, a breeding ground
A well placed heart in a fucked up town
All these thoughts are chemicals created to fill the room
With sickening thoughts, a breeding ground
For a well placed heart with a crooked crown

There is a reason
There is a reason it's this way
And it is perfect
So perfect it will never change
Track Name: Time Out, Crystal Heart
I've got crystals in my heart
With time they start to fall apart
There's all this sand that wears them down
One night with the moon could cleanse them all
In time I've learned how to fix myself
But it's not hard to forget it all
I've got crystals inside my heart
Their edges tear it all apart

And now the time has come
I know the wait is over
Retrieve, accept the sun
Let it feed me all over

I can go on...
Track Name: Sad Spectre
Now that my feet have left the ground
I can't turn back and the fear still sticks around
There was so much to try to be
But my thoughts and feelings just weren't quite the same as they used to be

In time I'll learn to float around
A sad spectre searching for a way to touch the ground
It's beautiful in its own way
Anyway I created this entire mess, alone

Alone
Track Name: Every Wretched Face
They day will come when the night is gone
And it will set you free
And we will kill anyone that stands in our way
Our love will carry us to a place unknown
To all the wretched faces here...

The day will come when the night is gone
And it will set us free
Then we, we'll kill everyone that stands in our way
Our love will carry us into a great escape
A place that will be foreign to every wretched face...
