Track Name: Floor Space
Can you hear me now? Screaming out, I'm hoping that these words don't leave a bitter taste in my mouth. I'm ridding myself of your plague and filth. My tired eyes have seen your crimes. No longer will you drag me down. And I hope you know that there's no one else to blame for your attitude or your shitty moods. You're dragging yourself down.

You expect an apology, and a part of me wants to say I'm sorry. But you're the reason I'm built this way. For that I'll never say I'm sorry.

I wanted to say that, starting today, I'm feeling better so please stay away.
Track Name: Weight Games
So let me try to understand the measuring units that you use to weigh the soul of a man. Because I'm feeling kind of heavy, and you're coming up just a little too light.

My dad said, "Son, don't you ever lose sight." And I know that some things have to give eventually. But I'm sick of giving everything.
My body is weak, my heart's not for the taking.

I still hope this guilt, it always haunts you. You're spread so thin that I can see through every single lie that you tell yourself to make it seem like we share a common wealth. And all this time, we were right. All this time, my friends were right. They watched me give it all away, and now I'm taking back what's mine. I'm doing just fine knowing that you're sleeping in his bed when every night spent adds to the debt your soul collects.

So take this advice and never let it go. You've got to learn the value of self respect. without it, there's nothing left.
Track Name: Better Days
Another year of my life that I watched slip away. I'm always slipping away from where I want to be. And I know it seems so selfless, but I've never been more selfish. I bet you feel like I'm abandoning responsibility. But I can't keep taking blame for you living life behind closed doors, closed doors that will never open up for you.

You said that this was just a phase. And you would change everything if I would just stay. Fuck you, I'll be better off this way. I know it's hard to hear, but here's to better days.

This year, I'm opening my eyes. I'm spreading these wings. I'm gonna learn to fly for my own team. And that's something that no school can teach me. I'm learning to live life without you.

You said that this was just a phase. And you would change everything if I would just stay. Fuck you, I'll be better off this way. I know it's hard to hear, but here's to better days.

I hope you get the chance. I hope that someday you'll understand to reach the top, cut your anchors.
Track Name: Out on a Limb
Everyday I write songs about moving on and growing up, but relapse when I hear this song. Know you're not too far, but to me you're gone. I'm still aware the trait we share is not accepting we're wrong. I'm not spending more days waiting up for you. Everything about you has left my room, and I wish I could say this was important to me but you've become a waste of time, money, paper, and ink. My head feels heavy.
I miss December, when small hands would help me finally get some goddamn sleep. I'm climbing slopes to getting better, but the summer seems so steep. I wish I'd never sent that letter; the one I wrote when I was weak.

My heart will never have its way with me. My eyes are blind but my mind will always see. You should stay the fuck away from me. Forever leave my mind and end this game, so that I can progress towards a new man. I'm only hoping that the best has yet to come.

I Rode my bike to where I met you, and the air still felt the same. I even laid down on the pavement to see if our sky had changed. And all these
places stay consistent, while you and I just fade away, although alone I
will discover on my own how to recover and live life day to day.

My heart will never have its way with me. My eyes are blind but my mind will always see. You should stay the fuck away from me. Forever leave my mind and end this game, so that I can progress towards a new man. I'm only hoping that the best has yet to come.

I'm hoping, we're hoping. I'm always hoping for
the best. I'm hoping, we're hoping.
I'm always waiting for the best.
Track Name: Clear the Coast
I can still remember the way the skyline sun was set, the fear we felt
inside our heads, running home until there wasn't one breath left in any of our lungs. The cold air rushing past our tongues and never even thinking of tomorrow.
Do you think that you are better off this way? Or maybe you're
just scared that things will stay the same. Either way I know that you are leaving. Without a warning you were gone.
You made promises you couldn't keep, winning hearts but losing sleep. These days I'm lucky just to sleep a wink. And now I see just how easily something like a few states can destroy me. Everyday is the same thing, and we don't ever speak your name. But we'll
always remember the change you brought this time each year, the face you made when your dad had too much beer.

I hope that you'll remember. I swear that you'll remember.

Please let me know when the coast is clear so you can be the storm to remind me hopes not near, and neither are you.
Please let me know when the coast is clear so you can be the storm to remind me hopes not near, and neither are you.

And all I have left are pictures and second chances of a friend who's worth so much more than my mental stances.
Track Name: Restless Mind
I'm sick of being followed by a bitter ghost, reminding me of everything I used to love the most. I tried my best to end this restless mind's constant wandering. But with this time to do productive things, I tend to disregard my own well being and start to focus on my lack of sleep. I can't find motivation. You left me notes with no translation, and I wish you would have called to say goodbye. I don't know why you think that this is all okay to fuck with hearts and play with minds like it's a playground game. I'm left to second guess how you could put me through this stress and not expect to be blamed.

Now I'm calling you out. Our spark went dead, but I'm hoping you
burn down. Leaving ashes everywhere you've been around.

How's it feel to know how far you fell? You're living life and empty shell. How's it feel to have a heart of stone and wake up feeling more alone each day?
Track Name: Nora
Your memory haunts me every way, and I swear I'm feeling better today. I hope you know I miss you. I fucked this up. Who am I to blame? I know it wasn't your fault, but pointing fingers never came so naturally.

I haven't been myself lately. I know that's not what you'd expect from me. I'm sorry I wasted all your precious days. You always got the worst of me.

I'm 21 now. We planned on owning our own house by this time next spring. We'd have no money, but I know that's okay. You'd run your fingers through my hair, and I'd sleep until I woke up from this dream.

I haven't been myself lately. I know that's not what you'd expect from me. I'm sorry I wasted all your precious days. You always got the worst of me.

I still let things slip away. You were young and thought I'd change. I regret my lack of effort. You fed me love, I shit out anger. Now I'm starving just to see you one more time.
Track Name: Torch Runner
I tried. I guess I'll wait another life time, allow you to lose your head, and I'll get a grip on mine. I'm sure we're better off alone tonight.

My arms are getting tired. You are the torch I hold for this fire. But lately
all I see is dark. You are making habits of playing head games. For what
it's worth, I broke this curse with our old flame. And maybe I prefer this
pitch black view.

I don't need your optimistic skew to tell me what makes me happy. Forget everything you think you know about me. You don't even
know yourself at all. You don't even know yourself at all. I've spent the past year waiting this out, fighting your lies. And now I'm down for the count. And as I'm throwing in this towel, I finally know I'm safe and sound.

I can't pretend that I'm alive. I'd Pull out my bones, my lungs, my spine before I'd ever return to weather the storms you put me through again. My efforts are dead.
Track Name: Over This
Wake up, I've gotta get a move on. I've been running in place for so long.
I'm growing older, getting colder, losing touch for simple things. I'd give
anything to feel like I'm a part of me. And that's how far this shit has
gone. I only talk to you through songs about how stupid you make me feel.

I'm burning bridges. I'm mending stitches. You'll never get to see how far
this river runs. You'll tread the shallow end, hope your this forever
quenched. But your stubborn fins won't let you swim past the tides of a
hopeless romantic.

I'm moving forward, so let's say I'm over this.
Left you for dead and as the water fills your chest,
we'll finally know how it feels to put this all to rest.
