Track Name: Memory Eraser
DRAG ME TO THE OCEAN FLOOR
‘CAUSE I DON’T WANT TO HEAR
THE SAME SOUND NO MORE
HALF LIES, PAST TENSE
I’D RATHER BURY ALL MY FRIENDS
I NEVER TRIED MY BEST
I’M STILL NOT TOO OLD YET

WHEN IT ALL GOES WRONG
WE’LL TIE OURSELVES TO THE ROOTS
THAT BURDEN THE TREES
YOU’LL BE THE LAST TO THAW
I’VE SEEN IT ALL
I NEVER TRIED MY BEST

SHOW ME A SIDE OF YOU THAT’S CRUEL
YOU’LL NEVER SEE MINE
YOU’RE MY MEMORY ERASER
THERE’S A NEW SET OF RULES

YOUNG SUNS BURN BRIGHT
ERASE IT ALL, ERASE IT
BLACK HOLE, NO LIGHT
ERASE IT ALL

BUT THERE’S NO PLACE WE CAN ESCAPE
AND THERE’S NO HEART YOU’D RATHER BREAK
SO STRIKE THE MATCH
AND WE WILL ALL BURN OUT
I NEVER TRIED MY BEST

SHOW ME A SIDE OF YOU THAT’S CRUEL
YOU’LL NEVER SEE MINE
YOU’RE MY MEMORY ERASER
THERE’S A NEW SET OF RULES
Track Name: Small Talk
VACATED HOSPITAL BED
I NEVER SAW A THING
I KNOW YOU’VE GOT YOUR DEVILS
I NEVER LET THEM IN

LATELY I’VE NOT BEEN CONCERNED
WITH WRONG OR RIGHT
AND IF THERE’S A GOD UP THERE
GOD KNOWS HE BETTER SAVE ME TWICE

DON’T COME BACK

IF THE TRUTH STILL HURTS
PUSHING IT DOWN
IS GOING TO MAKE IT WORSE
WHEN IT COMES AROUND
IT’S BEEN TOO LONG
SOMETHING ABOUT IT
STILL FEELS SO WRONG

SETTLE DOWN IT’S IN YOUR HEAD
THAT’S WHAT THEY SAY
WHEN THE DEVIL’S ON EACH SHOULDER
EVERY SINGLE DAY

I KNOW YOU’LL NEVER FORGET IT
COME BACK AND YOU’LL
ONLY REGRET IT
EVERYBODY IS SO VULNERABLE
IN THE FACE OF A DEAD END FUTURE

IF THE TRUTH STILL HURTS
PUSHING IT DOWN
IS GOING TO MAKE IT WORSE
WHEN IT COMES AROUND
IT’S BEEN TOO LONG
SOMETHING ABOUT IT
STILL FEELS SO WRONG

EVERYBODY IS SO VULNERABLE
I CAN SEE IT
Track Name: Bad Habits
NOW I’M PAYING FOR THE THINGS I’VE DONE
I’M LIVING OUT MY DAYS ON THE RUN

I’VE BEEN HOLDING MY HEAD
UP ABOVE THE CLOUDS
‘CAUSE I KNOW WHEN MY BACK’S TURNED
YOU’RE GOING TO LET ME DOWN

I CAN’T QUIT, NOT YET
CAN YOU FEEL IT BURN IN YOUR SOUL?
WE SAID NO TO DEATH
WE’VE SAID IT BEFORE
“THIS IS IN OUR BLOOD”

I KNOW WHEN YOU FEEL SO WEIGHED DOWN
I CAN’T FIX THAT
BUT I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT YOUR
BAD HABITS

I’VE BEEN LOSING MY HEAD
CAN YOU FEEL IT BURN IN YOUR SOUL?
WE WON’T BE THE LAST ONES LEFT
WE’VE SAID IT BEFORE
“THIS IS IN OUR BLOOD”

TAKE THE TIME TO GO IT ALONE
YOU HAVE TO LEARN TO LIVE ON YOUR OWN
THAT WORLD YOU CRAVE IS NON-EXISTENT
SO LOWER YOUR EXPECTATIONS

I KNOW WHEN YOU FEEL SO WEIGHED DOWN
I CAN’T FIX THAT
BUT I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT YOUR
BAD HABITS
Track Name: Wide Awake
I KNOW THERE’S NOTHING TO FEAR
CRADLED IN ITS ARMS
DRAGGED OUT BY ITS EARS
THE BEAST OF A BURDENED YOUTH
IT LEFT A SCAR, OH IT LEFT A BRUISE

I DON’T WANT TO LIVE LIKE THIS
I’VE LIVED A THOUSAND YEARS IN MY HEAD
FORGET ABOUT YOUR WASTED WORDS
THERE’S NO CHURCH FOR THE DISAPPOINTED

I STAY AWAKE EVERY NIGHT TO FEEL ALIVE

I CAN’T SLEEP EVERY SECOND I WAIT
IS A SECOND THAT I’LL NEVER GET BACK
AND I’M AFRAID THAT I’LL JUST KEEP LIVING
ON ALONE, LET THE FIRE BURN

IN THE END WHAT LESSONS DID YOU LEARN?
YOU NEVER LET GO, YOU LEFT US IN THE DIRT
THERE’S NOTHING MORE THAT I CAN DO
IF YOU’RE SECOND HAND SMOKE
I’M OLD NEWS

I DON’T WANT TO LIVE LIKE THIS
I’VE LIVED A THOUSAND YEARS IN MY HEAD
FORGET ABOUT YOUR WASTED WORDS
THERE’S NO CHURCH FOR THE DISAPPOINTED

I STAY AWAKE EVERY NIGHT TO FEEL ALIVE

I CAN’T SLEEP EVERY SECOND I WAIT
IS A SECOND THAT I’LL NEVER GET BACK
AND I’M AFRAID THAT I’LL JUST KEEP LIVING
ON ALONE, LET THE FIRE BURN

SAVE YOUR DREAMS FOR WHEN YOU’RE
WIDE AWAKE
Track Name: Two Snakes
THE WAY YOU MOVE IS SO UNNATURAL TO ME
YOU COIL AROUND ME ALMOST INNOCENTLY
WOULD YOU TAKE IT ALL BACK IF YOU COULD?
OR WILL YOU COVER YOUR TRACKS
LIKE WE KNEW YOU WOULD

AND IF I’D NEVER KNOWN
YOU WERE A WOLF DRESSED IN SHEEP’S CLOTHES
YOU ARE DANGEROUS
CAN YOU FEEL THE VENOM IN YOUR BLOOD?

TWO SNAKES SLITHER SIDE BY SIDE
IF HELL HAS ITS HANDS FULL
WHAT WILL THEY DO WITH YOU?

I’VE GOT AN EMPTY STOMACH AND A HEAVY HEART
I BUILT THIS SKELETON FROM BROKEN PARTS
AND NOW I KNOW I LET YOU SLITHER TOO NEAR
TOO MANY TIMES

THIS LOVE IS POISONOUS

THIS HEART, MY HOME, I’D TRADE IT ALL FOR GOLD
THIS HEART, MY HOME, I’D TRADE IT ALL

TWO SNAKES SLITHER SIDE BY SIDE
IF HELL HAS ITS HANDS FULL
WHAT WILL THEY DO WITH YOU?
Track Name: Church Coffee
CONVINCE YOURSELF THAT YOU’RE FINE
I’VE BEEN THERE BEFORE
BUT YOU’LL DISCOVER IN TIME
I’M PLAYING GAMES WITH YOUR MIND
YOU’VE BEEN THERE A WHILE
BUT I’M SCARED WHAT YOU’LL FIND

I’M SICK OF FEELING LIKE THIS
I KNOW WE CAN’T GIVE UP YET
I THINK I’M WASTING MY BREATH

YEAH WE’VE MADE DO WITH MUCH LESS
I FEEL THE DUST IN MY CHEST
LEFT FEELING JADED AGAIN

IS THIS AS GOOD AS IT GETS?
THIS IS A DEATH TRIP

I SEE BLACK CLOUDS OVERHEAD
THEY STAY WHEREVER WE’VE BEEN
LOST FAITH IN EVERYTHING

IS THIS AS GOOD AS IT GETS?
THIS IS A DEATH TRIP

WE MADE IT TO ANOTHER GREY TOWN
WE’RE NEVER COMING BACK
IF WE MAKE IT OUT
WE’RE RUNNING HOME
SO POINT US SOUTH

THIS IS A WASTE OF BREATH
THIS IS A DEATH TRIP
Track Name: Restless
SAVE YOUR WISHES FOR THE WELL
IT’S BEEN SO LONG SINCE I’VE BEEN MYSELF
WE’VE BEEN LOST IN THIS FOR YEARS
HOLDING ON TO SOMETHING
DESPITE OUR FEARS

THERE ARE TIMES
I WISH I HAD NOTHING TO LEAVE BEHIND
THERE ARE TIMES, I WISH I HAD NOTHING

OLD HEARTS BEATING IN OUR CHEST
WE CANNOT FEEL, WE DON’T NEED REST

RESTLESS SOULS DON’T NEED REST

OLD HEARTS BEATING IN OUR CHEST
WE CANNOT FEEL, WE DON’T NEED REST

RESTLESS SOULS DON’T NEED REST
Track Name: Guilt Trip
ANOTHER DAY, WHAT HAVE WE BECOME?
AN EMPTY ROOM TO SEE
THE LIGHT BEFORE THE SUN
AND I JUST NEED TO SEE THE NAMES
THIS LIST GOES ON AND ON

WITH EVERYDAY, I FIND
NOTHING COMPLETES ME
I DECAY, LIFE GOT IN THE WAY

NOT DEAD, WE’RE NOT DEAD YET

YOU’RE HEARTLESS, I’M LOVESICK
I’M AVOIDING IT ALL ON PURPOSE
I DON’T WANT THE CONFRONTATION
OR CONVERSATIONS

YOU’RE HEARTLESS, I’M LOVESICK
I’M AVOIDING IT ALL ON PURPOSE
I CAN ONLY PRAISE YOUR AMBITION
I JUST HOPE REALITY SINKS IN

I DONT WANT ANOTHER GUILT TRIP

BRIGHTEST LIGHTS SHINE
IN THE DARKEST CORNERS
STILL I SEE, TRYING TO FIND MY WAY

NOT DEAD, WE’RE NOT DEAD YET

YOU’RE HEARTLESS, I’M LOVESICK
I’M AVOIDING IT ALL ON PURPOSE
I DON’T WANT THE CONFRONTATION
OR CONVERSATIONS

YOU’RE HEARTLESS, I’M LOVESICK
I’M AVOIDING IT ALL ON PURPOSE
I CAN ONLY PRAISE YOUR AMBITION
I JUST HOPE REALITY SINKS IN

I DONT WANT ANOTHER GUILT TRIP

TIMES ARE CHANGING, AND IT SHOWS
WE’RE NOT BROKEN, WE’RE JUST COLD
Track Name: No Paradise
IS THAT BLOOD ON YOUR HANDS?
YOUR WHITE FLAGS DON’T MEAN A THING
THERE’S NO ROOM AROUND HERE
TO CLEAR MY HEAD

AND IT’S ALL TOO LITTLE, TOO LATE
NO PARADISE IN SIGHT
I HEARD THE DEVIL SPEAK

BUT I NEVER SAW HIS FACE
JUST FLASHING LIGHTS
DON’T MAKE ME BEG
WISH ME GOOD RIDDANCE
I’M COMING CLEAN

AND YOU SHOULD DO THE SAME
OR WASTE YOUR LIFE ON SINKING SHIPS
WELL, I BLAME LOOSE LIPS

I BET YOU’D HATE TO ADMIT

YOU’VE FUCKED IT UP AGAIN
IT’S NOT LIKE YOU’D EVER
FIND IT HARD TO PRETEND

THEY SAY HE’S COMING FOR YOUR SOUL
BUT HE NEVER BOTHERS ME AT ALL

AND IT’S ALL TOO LITTLE, TOO LATE
NO PARADISE IN SIGHT
I HEARD THE DEVIL SPEAK
Track Name: Headache
MOST DAYS, IT FEELS LIKE THE SUN’S EXPLODING
MY HEAD IS FILLED WITH TOXIC LOATHING
LET IT SLOWLY SINK IN
YOU’RE MOVING ON WITHOUT ME

NOW THE HEADACHE STARTS TO SPIN
I’M BUILDING WALLS TO KEEP US IN
SO TAKE THE CROWN AND MELT IT DOWN
EMBRACE THE SILENCE IGNORE THE SOUNDS

LET GO, BUT WAS IT WORTH THE PRICE YOU PAID?
TOO SCARED TO NEVER LEAVE THE HOUSE AGAIN

LET IT SLOWLY SINK IN
YOU’RE MOVING ON WITHOUT ME
LET IT SLOWLY SINK IN
YOU’RE EVERYTHING I’LL NEVER BE

I SEE THE CRACKS IN YOUR
MISFORTUNATE CRYSTAL BALL
