Track Name: Everything
Let go of everything that you belong to
Don’t you belong to me?
Let go of everything that you have gone through
Don’t you move on from me.

Take back the lines we draw
Don’t need them anymore
Give up your pieces to me
Newspapers mark our date
Hold me it’s not too late
Give up your arms to me

And if you change your mind
Then I will too…
Track Name: Heliograph
Kiss me by the cemetery
In the city where our secret’s buried
The streetlights light the lonely graves
A vision, a vision

Close the door, cross the street
There’s a piece of me I’ll never recollect
Close the door, cross the street
There’s a piece of me I’ll never recollect

Say the words you mean to say
Rethink, say them anyway
Don’t, don’t you choke

Say the words you mean to say
Rethink, say them anyway
Don’t, don’t you choke
Track Name: Bad Dream
I don’t need you to be in the backseat
You saved me so suddenly, so suddenly
Just to watch me go, just to kill me so slowly

I came to love you in the darkness
That’s where our love was born to die
You let me cry in my bed all alone

You’re a bad dream and I can’t wake up
You’re a bad dream and I can’t wake up
Track Name: Trees
Take a walk with me
See the mountains, miss the trees
Hold my hand, that’s all I ask of you
It’d be nice if you’d look at me too

You say sorry but you’re not
You said I “have to live with what I did”
I can’t lie, you know that I’ve cried
I don’t know if I’ll live through this

You say sorry but you’re not
You said I “have to live with what I did”
I can’t lie, you know that I’ve cried
I don’t know if I’ll live through this

Oh, oh no
“Don’t you come back here again”
Oh oh, oh no
“Don’t you come back here again….”
Track Name: Crown
Take back this crown, take back this crown
Tell me who has your heart tied in knots
Tell me who has your heart tied in knots

My lips are thin, but I’m in love with them
The ridges are my father’s, and my eyes are always green
Take back this crown, take back this crown

We stumble on the words we try to speak
And we crumble for the things to never be

Turn it up to the top step
Turn it in to tiny little pieces
Turn it up to the top step
Turn it in to tiny little pieces
When they go, they go , they’re gone
They go, they’re gone
They’ll say that you were mine.
Track Name: Break All the Rules
Land this jump, I wish that I could be the one
Land this jump, wish that I could be the one

Read a book about it
Thought I could catch it before it fell
I read the truth will spill out
And that my heart will bleed just as well
You’re my sun, you’re my moon
You’re the reason I choose to be lonely, to be lonely
Ruminate, it’s getting late for this
It’s getting way too late for this now

You were born to leave
You were born to leave
What of the day when you choose to leave me
You were born to leave
You were born to leave
What of the day when you choose to leave me

Desperately I love you
As I’m staring into black
Desperately I need you
And when you’re wanting to, I catch you staring back

Break all the rules and just stay
Who made these rules anyway
Break all the rules and just stay
Who made these rules anyway
Bunch of cowards, always afraid
Break all the rules and just stay
Just stay.
Track Name: Dirt
She’s in your arms
And I’m in the ground
You said that you’d hide me, but that you would come find me
Now I think I might drown in this dirt

Love me, or bury me here
Love me, or bury me here

You’re miles away
And I’m in the sky
You said that you’d need me, that you’d never leave me
Now I think I might crash to the earth

Love me, or bury me here
Love me, or bury me here

Oh, I tied my heart to a string of the ceiling fan over your bed
Oh, I tied my heart to a string of the ceiling fan over your bed…

I’ve got no goodbye waiting for me
If I say “I love you,” will you see?
Hit the ground, I’m running to get free
The storm in your eyes changes like the sea
It goes round, it goes round, it goes round, it goes round…

Take me down, take me down, take me down
Cut me down, cut me down, cut me down
Cause I can’t bear to be here anymore, anymore…
Track Name: Never/Always
I can’t sleep holding your heart next to me
Holding your arms wherever they lead
Waiting for you…

Will you hold my hand when the darkness sings?
Will you hold my hand when the dawn sets in?

I can’t breathe thinking of everything
You’ve given me nothing, don’t leave me a thief
Leave me a fool…

Will you hold my hand when the darkness sings?
Will you hold my hand when the dawn sets in?

I can’t sleep
You can’t see
We can’t be
I can’t sleep.
Track Name: Debt
Better pay it off before they get here
Better pay it off before she leaves
It’s time to pay the debt, the debt you sold me
Baby, don’t you know it’s time to choose

Better turn yourself in before they hear
What you did and what you plan to do
It’s time to pay the debt, the debt you sold me
Baby, don’t you know it’s time to choose

And if you’re talking ‘bout forever
Well, I think you’ve got it wrong
And if you’re talking ‘bout forever
Well, I think you’ve got it wrong

Better pay it off before they get here, better pay it off before she’s gone.

Better back your suitcase, cut your phone
Tell nobody when you’re coming home
And if they find you I have no sweetness
Left inside this heart you turned to stone.

And if you’re talking ‘bout forever
Well, I think you’ve got it wrong
And if you’re talking ‘bout forever
Well, I think you’ve got it wrong
Track Name: Light/Dark
Oh, what a life
Only darkness in my eyes
Til your light found my side
It’s alright it gets cold once in a while
(step into the light, step out of the dark, we can make this happen, just give me one damn spark)

Just hold on, hold on
The light is coming…

You, you sing so sweet
You sweep me off my feet
And I beg and plead, “Won’t you save me from this darkness beast?”

Just hold on, hold on
The light is coming
Oh the light is coming…
Track Name: Love Me Not
He will never look at me the way that you do, the way that you do
And he will never think of me as often as you do, as often as you do
And when the stars fall from the sky, the stars fall from the sky
You’ll be there with a smile
And He will hold me when I die, will hold me when I die
Then he’ll follow after

Oh, I know we will never meet again
And I know it’ll never be the same, anyway
And although these holes may never disappear

The sun will rise again I know, whether you love me or not
The sun will rise again I know, whether you love me or not.
