YOU BELONG BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY OR JUST SOMEONE ELSE WHO KNOWS HOW TO TELL YOU WHAT IT’S LIKE TO FEEL THIS WAY BECAUSE I CAN’T FIND THE WORDS ABLE MINDED MEN HAVE TRIED BEFORE ME AND JUST FALLEN OFF THE WORLD NEVER TO BE SEEN AGAIN AND NOW YOU’RE OFF DESTROYING WHERE IT HURTS IF ONLY WE KNEW WHERE YOUR WEAK SPOT WAS WE’D FIND AND DESTROY IT BEFORE MORE LIVES WERE LOST AND WE COULD SLEEP IF ONLY WE COULD SLEEP I’VE BEEN KNOWN TO CHANGE A LINE OR TWO BEFORE I SAY WHAT’S ON MY MIND LEAVING ME FOR DEAD UNTIL YOU TELL ME THAT I’M ACTUALLY ALIVE MAYBE PLANS’LL CHANGE AND MAYBE NOT I GUESS IT’S ON THE UNIVERSE BELIEVE ME WHEN I SAY I’D RATHER BE THE ONE THAT’S DRIVING IN THE HEARSE IF ONLY WE KNEW WHERE YOUR WEAK SPOT WAS WE’D FIND AND DESTROY IT BEFORE MORE LIVES WERE LOST AND WE COULD SLEEP IF ONLY WE COULD SLEEP CAREFREE AND CARELESS AND CAREFUL TO STAY AS SUCH. I NEVER THOUGHT IT COULD TUG AT MY STRINGS AS MUCH. AND NOW WE DON’T SLEEP IF ONLY WE COULD SLEEP

IF ALL YOU ARE IS EVERYTHING TO ME THEN I SHOULD KNOW THAT I CAN LOSE IT ALL IF EVERYTHING’S AS SIMPLE AS IT SEEMS THEN WINTER THAWS AND THINGS GROW TALL AND I’M ALONE FOR SUMMER’S CALL BECAUSE I REFUSED TO CARE AT ALL AND THEN LEAVES’LL TURN AND START TO FALL AND YOU WON’T REMEMBER ME. I GOT HIGH SO HIGH AND I DROVE AROUND THE COUNTRY IN THE OLD ECONOLINE PUT UP BILLBOARD SIGNS PUT THEM EVERYWHERE YOU’D BE BIG AS LIFE AND IN 3D BUT BABY, YOU WON’T REMEMBER ME. WHEN EVERYTHING’S YOUR ENEMY IT SEEMS AND ALL YOUR DEMONS CHASE YOU TO THE TREES YOU WON’T SAY A WORD OF WHAT YOU MEAN AND YOU RECALL THE PLACES ALL THAT YOU WOULD RUN INSTEAD OF FALL BECAUSE FACING IT MIGHT CLIMB THE WALL SO TAKE TO KNEES AND START TO CRAWL AND YOU WON’T REMEMBER ME.

Just Because 04:20
TRYING TO BE ALL THE THINGS THAT I THINK THEY WOULD WANT ME TO BE SO THEY’RE NOT OUT OF MY LEAGUE. HIDE IN THE WEEDS. THEY CAN’T SEE THAT I’M NOT OUT THERE CHASING THEIR DREAMS. CUT ME AND ALL ACTUALLY BLEED. FIND LOVE, JUST BECAUSE IT’S THE THING YOU DO WHEN YOU GROW UP. MY LOVE, LISTEN UP. SHOES ON YOUR FEET, RUNAWAY EASY. BUT WE BOTH KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS. ALONE IN THIS WORLD, YOU WILL BE. FIND LOVE, JUST BECAUSE IT’S THE THING YOU DO WHEN YOU GROW UP. MY LOVE, LISTEN UP. TRY LOVE, LIKE A DRUG. IT’S THE ONE THING YOU KNOW DREAM OF. WHY LOVE? CAUSE IT KNOWS. WHAT YOU WANT, AND YOU NEED, WHAT YOU ARE, ALL THAT YOU NEVER WILL BE; HOW TO GET YOU ON YOUR KNEES. ALL THOSE THINGS WE NEVER SAY. AND THE WAYS WE RUN AWAY. THEY JUST MAKE IT YESTERDAY.

I MADE THIS BED OF MINE SO WELL THAT I CAN’T LIE IN IT I GAVE IN AWHILE, OH WELL. BUT I’M STILL TRYING IT. YOU THINK THAT THIS IS SOMETHING THAT WE CAN FORGET ABOUT YOU SAID A LOT OF THINGS AND WE NEVER TALKED IT OUT. YOU SHOULD BE COMING CLEAN WHENEVER YOU’RE READY. SO FALL ON THE BLADE. I’LL HOLD IT STEADY. I GAVE A SHIT AND I DON’T KNOW IF IT WAS MINE TO GIVE THESE DAYS WE LIVE AND DIE SO WELL THAT THERE’S NO TIME TO LIVE YOU THINK IT’S OVER BUT IT’S NOT YOU NEED TO COME AROUND. I’LL TELL EM EVERYTHING AND YOU’LL NEVER LIVE IT DOWN YOU SHOULD BE COMING CLEAN WHENEVER YOU’RE READY. SO FALL ON THE BLADE. I’LL HOLD IT STEADY.

Mary Shelley 04:12
BIG FISH SWIMMING IN A MIDWEST POND MY STUFF IS ALL STACKED ON THE LAWN ARE YOU GETTING ENOUGH ATTENTION YET? THE STABLE EYES AND THE SHAKY JAW CAN’T BREAK MY HEART WITHOUT BREAKING A LAW ARE YOU GETTING ENOUGH ATTENTION YET? IT’S ENTIRELY DOWN TO YOU AND ME WE SCARED ALL THE OTHERS OFF WE CAN WAIT AND SEE IF WE DON’T BELIEVE BUT I CAN STILL SMELL THE EXHAUST ARE YOU GETTING ENOUGH ATTENTION YET? THE SAVING GRACE, THE FATAL FLAW BUT YOU CAN’T MAKE HEADLINES AT ALL ARE YOU GETTING ENOUGH ATTENTION YET? SO TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK YOU SAW AND I’LL TELL YOU THAT IT’S MY FAULT ARE YOU GETTING ENOUGH ATTENTION YET?

Slow Crash 04:57
FREE FROM YOU, I LONG TO BE FREE FROM TRUTH, YOU’VE TAKEN ME IN SO DEEP, IT SENDS ME TO SPIN THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT YOU AND I FEEL THAT I’M SINKING IN COME DOWN, LET GO. I HOLD ON TO YOU. THE WORDS YOU SPEAK ARE SMASHED IN THE AIR. THEY’RE RIPPED FROM YOUR THROAT AND DON’T EVER GO ANYWHERE LOST IN THOUGHT, SUSPENDED IN DREAMS I’M TOSSED IN YOUR CIRCUS AND YOU DO WHATEVER YOU PLEASE COME DOWN, LET GO. I HOLD ON TO YOU. YOU CRASH SO SLOW I HOLD ON TO YOU

HAD A GOOD RUN OF BAD DAYS, NEVER ENOUGH, STUCK AROUND LIKE A STICK, LIKE A STICK IN THE MUD. AND YOU’LL STILL HAVE ME ANYWAY YOU CAN GRAB ME WOULDN’T KNOW BY THE WAY YOU WERE LAPPING IT UP THAT YOU DON’T BELIEVE WHEN I’M SELLING YOU STUFF AND YOU’LL BE HAPPY AS LONG AS YOU STILL HAVE ME FOR THE NIGHT FOR THE VERY LONG NIGHT IT’S NOT RIGHT NO NO NO IT’S JUST NOT RIGHT PRETTY SOON I ASSUME THAT YOU FIGURE IT OUT MAKING MOVES FORE THE WORLD STARTS FALLING DOWN ALL AROUND YOU AND THEN NOBODY CAN SAVE YOU MOVE AWAY, GET A DOG AND A HAPPENING JOB YOU’LL BE RIGHT YOU’LL BE RIGHT AS THE RAIN FALL FOR AWHILE UNTIL THE SUN LEAVES THEN I EXPECT YOU TO CALL ME
8.
ARE YOU STANDING IN THE WAY OF FATE? BEING SAFE WITH THE MOVES YOU MAKE? MAYBE IT’S A CHANCE YOU TAKE THAT SETS IT OFF. FEEING RIPE FOR A GOOD MISTAKE. IS THE BOUGH SOMETHING THAT SHOULD BREAK? SEEMS LIKE THERE’S A LOT AT STAKE IF IT FALLS. AND NOW THERE’S HOLES IN THE WALL YOU STAND TRIAL FOR KILLING THE VIBE SAID YOU WERE MILES FROM THE SCENE AT OF THE CRIME BUT YOU’RE ONLY AS GOOD AS YOUR ALIBI. IF IT’S A DAY IN THE SUN YOU CRAVE THEN BABY, WHY YOU TRYING TO MAKE IT RAIN? YOU GOT WAY FEWER WARS TO WAGE THEN YOU KNOW AND NOW THERE’S HOLES IN THE WALL AND NOTHING TO SHOW FOR THEM AT ALL YOU STAND TRIAL FOR KILLING THE VIBE SAID YOU WERE MILES FROM THE SCENE AT THE TIME. BUT YOU’RE ONLY AS GOOD AS YOUR ALIBI. THE FRUIT ISN’T RIPE, IT SHOULD STAY ON THE VINE DON’T THINK YOU GOT WHAT IT TAKES TO SURVIVE WHEN YOU’RE ONLY HEARING THE WORDS YOU LIVE BY IT’S A COLD THAT YOU JUST CAN’T SHAKE LEAVE ON TIME BUT YOU’RE ALWAYS LATE THERE’S A WAVE FOR YOU IN THIS WAKE AND IT’S COMING ALONG.

NOBODY’S WINNING AND I DON’T NEED TO KEEP YOU AROUND OR SPEND ANOTHER DIME I DON’T FEEL PITY I USE MY SPINE NOBODY’S WINNING AND I DON’T NEED TO KEEP YOU AROUND OR SPEND ANOTHER DIME YOU KNOW YOU ROLL THE DICE AND THEN YOU WALK AWAY SOMETIMES THE WHOLE EMPIRE CAN BURN FOR A MISTAKE FOR ALL THE TIMES YOU WENT AWAY FOR EVERY NIGHT, ANOTHER DAY THE BENDS A BEND UNTIL IT BREAKS I DON’T FEEL PITY I USE MY SPINE NOBODY’S WINNING AND I DON’T NEED TO KEEP YOU AROUND OR SPEND ANOTHER DIME CAN’T STOP THE LEAVES FROM FALLING WINTER IS NEIGH THE SUN IS SETTING ON IT AND I DON’T NEED TO TELL YOU A WHO, A WHAT, A WHERE OR WHY. I KNOW YOU’LL FIND ANOTHER WAY TO STAY RELEVANT IN THE GAME THE RULES ARE CHANGING EVERY DAY TO NEW BEGINNINGS AND BETTER TIMES THE WORLD KEEPS SPINNING BUT I DON’T NEED TO KEEP YOU AROUND OR SPEND ANOTHER DIME
