Track Name: Wanted
WANTED
A thousand fireflies in the grass, let them pass
I'll talk a mile so it lasts
Like a child, your smile
It's like a free pass to
All I ever wanted, all I ever wanted

You let me sit for days talking to answering machines
You knew, and you threw empty bottles
I oughta just drop you like smoking
And all I ever wanted, all I ever wanted was it all

Can I excuse the damage that's allowed
Single plans left unattended, out of town
Glad I spoke up, you choked up
You bent down, you cried out
And all I ever wanted, all I ever wanted was it all
Track Name: Stuck
STUCK
I'm doing better today than I was doing yesterday
Best could be yet to come, guess I'll just ride out these waves
I'm doing better today but my hopes are not high
I'm learning what to expect, I'm learning how to get by
Learning not to go off without changing the locks
I'm learning how to disguise what's leaking out of my mind

And it's not something I'm proud of
But I'm stuck smack dab in the middle of it, in the middle of it
I'm stuck smack dab in the middle of it, in the middle of it
I'm often prone to missteps but I didn't expect this
Now I'm stuck smack dab in the middle of it
Track Name: Golden Rose
GOLDEN ROSE
Can't stand up, won't sit down
With you here I'll leave town
I'll bleed out, you'll see how loving you takes, it breaks, it tears me apart
You cross me, hey I'll go
Ask my friends, they all know
Your heart stole, your dark shown
Loving you takes, it breaks, it tears me apart

And when I try to go to sleep
It follows me, it keeps the beat

Tell your friend I know she's a liar (it only adds the fuel to the fire)
Golden rose, she floats, getting higher (it only adds the fuel to the fire)

Abiding this freak out
No fighting, no deep sounds
And we drown, where we found loving you takes, it breaks, it tears me apart
It cost you a day's wage

It lost you the front page
Now I'll stay in your place
Loving you takes, it breaks, it tears me apart

Can't stand up, won't sit down (it only adds the fuel to the fire)
With you here, I'll leave town (it only adds the fuel to the fire)
Getting played all day, we're in style (it only adds the fuel to the fire)
Tell your friend I know she's a liar (it only adds the fuel to the fire)
Track Name: Let Me Down
LET ME DOWN
Don't want, don't want something too familiar
It's done, we swallow the pills to kill our consciousness

It takes the best, it takes the best of us
It's like a mess, it changes it, it turns it into dust
It's what I want, it's what I want, it's what I want

And at the sight of light we all just scatter
What weakness holds me tight it doesn't matter
You say you like my sound, don't ever let me down
Let me down

You stand, you're standing too close for comfort
We're friends, but sometimes I start to wonder
If the side I'm taking could be breaking your constraint
Or if I'm too excited to be seeing you today
Shows in my face, shows in my face, shows in my face
Track Name: Holymother
HOLYMOTHER
She wants to see, wants to see it glow
Hands clasped for most of the show
We created that wall when we started to fall
Holy mother, look at the sky
Stationary most of the time
We united as one, we provide what we want
We united as one, we won't stop 'til we're done

She wants to see, wants to see it fade
Sits still for most of the day
They'll believe anything when you're so convincing
Holy mother, look at the sky
Stationary most of the time
We united as one, we provide what we want
We united as one, we won't stop 'til we're done
Track Name: Junk
JUNK
Stumble until you feel like you've won
Divided, light cigarettes with the sun
Simultaneous frames lining up through your day
And I think that you like it this way

She's nothing short of compromise
She's not afraid of a good fight

In our junking eyes of love we'll do anything you want
In our junking eyes of love we get so worked up

Wound up so hard it blew us off course
It's the d, it's the d in divorce
And my nose it bled but just a small amount
I'm no one you need to figure out
Track Name: So Long
SO LONG
She wasn't even looking at them
She feels her way then leaves again, so long!
She peels away her outside layers
They feign interest, they'll come back later on

Say what you want or I'm not getting up

She trades her lines for sharpened daggers
The faintest echoed noise will break her up

Even our exhales have consequences
See that the rest fail, give them all my regards
So far it's hard
Track Name: Perfect Person
PERFECT PERSON
Stop what you're saying
You don't know what you're playing at
And I can see right through your tears

You complain about each thing, then leave again
Am I the one who wasn't clear?

And I am not a perfect person
And I was for the most part worse off with my eyes closed tight
That's right

I'm not your casualty like I maybe seemed to be
You shoot but I am bulletproof
You arrange your pride like you have never lied
Decide your will will make it true

Now you've got a nice look, got a nice look right off the bat
And you've got a nice way, got a nice way about you
If only you learned to give back

And I am not a perfect person
And I was for the most part worse off in those weeks
You're making me lose sleep
Track Name: Cracked the Bottle
CRACKED THE BOTTLE
Cracked the bottle, I'm shot through
Trade in lines, my debt is due
Meet me there to collect
I have something for you

Showed up half-drunk, not there yet
Eyes are closed, my mind is set
Probably best when we're kept
Safely at arms length

It's a kindred adoration
You're a static radio station
That I rest on cause I like the vibration

Under street lights, after dark
This destruction made of art
Ties our hands, blows our plans
Still we play our part
Track Name: Come Around Anytime
COME AROUND ANYTIME
Gets a little worn, debts I can't afford
Staying up for days, refreshing the page
Caught up in your mess, placed too many bets
Can't forget the song, we knew it all along

The lines that we draw to keep us from hurting, they're not working
And what I wouldn't give to hang out like we always did
So come around anytime, anytime
Anytime, anytime you like

Search until we're sore, looks that start a war
Sleeping on the ground, you supply the sound
How do you explain our true false fail game?
Do you get goosebumps when you feel it creeping in?
Track Name: Yr Wrong
YR WRONG
The power I gave you was invaluable
The truce that we made only allowed a pull
A force that reminds, stay away, you're not kind to me
I smiled and kept focus while you just talked
About the moment that you said you lost
And if you were smart you'd know I'd win the part honestly

Someday you'll learn to say you're wrong
By then I'll be gone

The power I gave you was invaluable
The truce that we made only allowed a pull
A force that reminds, stay away, you're not kind to me
See it was unfair of me to idolize
Someone only human, made it all capsize
But there are worse sins that a girl can commit to your pride

Shouldn't have asked that much of you
And I tried to make it up
But you won't tell me what to do

And I can't just wait, no I can't just wait
Track Name: Everything
EVERYTHING
Where it's going it doesn't mean anything
Overflowing, it floods and it makes us swim
When I said that I wanted it all back it just haunted me to death
So forget, forget, forget

I am afraid of every shadow in this place
The light it fades, we don't have half of what we fake
When I though that I lost you, I was right
I could not move from the space where we played, we played, we played

Don't look away now, everything will be explained

Summer was a bust, I think we talked too much
Can you say honestly, you never though of me?
Track Name: Go Phantom
GO PHANTOM
Switched to beer, we knocked out that twelve pack
And it's a pretty good thing that we walked
Crystal clear, arms brushed, then you held back
Wasn't this the kind of thing that you wanted?

I'm the tired host of your holy ghost
And I'll tell you that you, you're truly the most
You are the most

Pain's wrapped in blame everything on me
It's the same, it's how you like to leave
Pawns in games you're hiding up your sleeve
Phantom pain, it's all you'll ever be

Never fear what I wanted this bad
But it's disarming to have right in my face
In the mirror, like a light looking back
You wait behind the walls of my hiding places
Track Name: Kingdoms
KINGDOMS
Why do you fixate on what you hate?
Always orchestrate
I feel for you, I feel for you
What ends the penalty for the loss?
I've supplied the cost
Won't fade away
Thrown in my face near every day

Now I have made my share of moves unfair
I stopped, I swear
And I will tell you what
Yeah I've messed up so I don't judge
And I don't think it can feel good

Now I'm not even sure what this is for
And so be warned that I'll abide my plan
You understand but you get so mad

And I don't think it can feel good
Anymore
