Fall 03:24
You said I could get under your skin. That, I mistook. Leave it behind. Thoughts? Or, Recourse and rewind. I evened the score. Got me to Nowhere and Misunderstood. You stayed confused and we were both used. So you want me to stay Just to have your own way I say no, I gotta fly Yeah, your bruises look good Just the way that they should But I can't save you when you're this high So watch me from your clout as I fall from the sky Fuck, I'm stuck six feet under the weathering of this breaking heart. But, I never even started. I'm in too deep but not in love or something like lust. So you want me to stay Just to have your own way I say no, I gotta fly Yeah, your bruises look good Just the way that they should But I can't save you when you're this high So watch me from your clout as I fall from the sky Babe, it's chilly. Let me warm my hands under your coat. With your pockets full of change. So you want me to stay Just to have your own way I say no, I gotta fly Yeah, your bruises look good Just the way that they should But I can't save you when you're this high So you want me to stay Just to have your own way I say no, I gotta fly Know your bruises look good Just the way that they should But I can't save you when you're this high So watch me from your clout, said, watch me from your clout Said, watch me from your clout as I fall from the sky

AveryJane 04:42
City girls who call for lovers on bright stars... They aren't really stars But planes that carry lives to farther stratospheres, away from here. Some days their hearts are cracked, Some days they mend, Some days they come apart. All things are right in their place, in the head of AveryJane. He will take her hand, she'll take his arm and walk Past kingdoms of damp and steely stacombs of dreamers' fears, they can't see at all. Some days we'll mean to try, Some days we'll run, Some days we'll fall apart. All things in steady refrain Like songs for AveryJane. Music adaptations for these falsified storybook endings. Standing on the tallest hill, Awaiting thrills and love unwaivering. Watching others tumble down, The danger looms, the fall from gravity. Overtures for every AveryJane. Music adaptations for these falsified storybook endings. Standing on the tallest hill, Awaiting thrills and love unwaivering. Watching others tumble down, The danger looms, the fall from gravity. Overtures for every AveryJane. Cause you, Tumble when you go down, You stumble when you first flow, That's how you learn to live and grow. Yeah you, Tumble when you go down, You stumble when you first flow, That's how you learn love and let go. Yeah you, Tumble when you go down, You stumble when you first flow, That's how you learn to live and grow, love and let go.

You've been waiting for a long time. I've been sailing in your direction. To hope you never say you're leaving Is selfish circumstance to falling in love. You told me life is young and fleeting, We take it in any way that we can. I am built like puzzle pieces. Scattered cross to where the heart is. Though simple little lies will push me, I swear I did, I tried to tell you the truth. Now that I'm standing on your ledge dear, Won't you please tell me I am the only one. Hold to me as if you could keep Hidden all the pain you said had waned With every word it still remains I can save you from your sadness, If only you could let me find it. I watch you drive away so broken, The blood I spilled runs deeper into your wounds. There wouldn't be a me without you, Forget this night and let's start something new.

Status quo, You've always had the upper hand, here. You know, I fall for every pseudo-change. O'er the music, so hovers the breeze. Trust the mistrust that injures us the most. Suited well, Two damaged souls are well deserving. Set to learn How chemically charged destinies can be. Trust the mistrust that injures us the most. With some aptitude, our lies have been obscured. Hope for the best but expect the worst in unforgiving form. Some plan, Fools who follow paths in darkness, Are bound to fall on the faces of imminent traces from searching for light. Trust the mistrust that injures us the most. With some aptitude, our lies have been obscured. Hope for the best but expect the worst in unforgiving form. Get up again, Who loves the pain more than me? We'll see... Jealousy, strife, yearn for the bite of electricity. Trust the mistrust that injures us the most. With some aptitude, our lies have been obscured. Hope for the best but expect the worst in unforgiving form. Hope for the best but expect the worst in unforgiving form. Get up again, Who loves the pain more than me?

Float 02:54
Darkened clouds that dare to follow you Go at it alone but move like living stone. When'd you stop believing We could get through to the other side of you? Tie the anchor. Down, Floating can't fix anything now. All we are is just scared to change. Then the night steadily creeps in, Always on its own. No one claims to know where from It started going wrong. You've been on the run From the things that lay the blame. Tie the anchor. Down, Floating can't fix anything now. All we are is just scared to change. Tie the anchor. Down, Floating can't fix anything now. All we are is just scared to change.

Thank You 04:59
You say what I was doesn't matter But the past has a funny way Of coming up and biting you on the ass. And, it's so damn amazing How every negative retort diffuses In the glare of your eyes. And, I sing so loud it wakes my senses from the deadest sleep of my life. Brightest colors I've ever seen The smell of the rose I've passed a million times And never once stopped to say hi. You taught me how to get close to the land of my name And how to sow my roots, And how to dig my own way; To let myself grow and walk away. This world astounding. I am constantly dazzled By complexities of earthly kind. Like a cosmic hug from stargazing That leads me to your doorstep In flaw-full abound. Beautiful, this mortal coil I'll eventually leave behind. Brightest colors I've ever seen The smell of the rose I've passed a million times And never once stopped to say hi. You taught me how to get close to the land of my name And how to sow my roots, And how to dig my own way; To let myself grow and walk away. Brightest colors I've ever seen The smell of the rose I've passed a million times And never once stopped to say hi. You taught me how to get close to the land of my name And how to sow my roots, And how to dig my own way; To let myself grow and walk away.

These Walls 03:55
There's no easy way to say I've outgrown you in every way. Your skin has shrunk and fades away. I don't know if I'm to miss you yet. It happens this way sometimes. When she learns and he begs, And gives up so the day she returns It's too late 'cause he's moved far away. These walls are so cold but they hold. Strange this vacant stare can fill Every moment shared between you. And, your world, the hollow grave? Bury pity, comfortable, and, Soon, it happens this way sometimes. When she calls and gives in, He says no other way. So she bleeds When he starts killing her love for him. These walls are so cold but they hold. I learned and you begged, And, that's when you gave us up. And, the day I returned, I did not want you back. These walls are so cold. I pushed and you shoved, And then down we both fall. There's no place like the hell That this house has brought us. These walls are so cold but they hold.

Mercy 04:19
I know fire when I see it, Doesn't mean I won't burn. Nothing inspires you like knowing My heart heart under your feet. It feels just like falling, It feels just like falling, It feels just like falling in love with you again. You are mirrored in foreign arms Intertwined in different hands. As I close my eyes, you haunt me then. Why are you in every man I meet? It feels just like falling, It feels just like falling, It feels just like falling in love with you again. Mercy, mercy. I let you go, I thought, But I still got burned. It feels just like falling, It feels just like falling, It feels just like falling, It feels just like, Falling...

I've always been Just a little on the outside of my head. My mind deceives and eyes perceive Beauty from within. Am I meant for more? Dare I grow young? Somehow the questions of the world Seem to succumb To tranquil slumber underneath a giant tree While fireflies fill the night sky. This is not me. I am a million stars seen through willow leaves And arms stretched out vertically into space To embrace you, my home. Man-made wings. Made of wax and love, And flying toward the sun. And, as I lay, burning, on unforgiving ground, Do I leap or drown? This is not me. I am a million stars seen through willow leaves And arms stretched out vertically into space To embrace you, my home. Never alone, The dark surrenders soon to light-kissed thrones. And there we will sit until we grow old Or the day we become free. This is not me. I am a million stars seen through willow leaves And arms stretched out vertically into space To embrace you, my home.

For... 05:13
It has been nine years and three months since I heard your voice for the very last time. And you said, "How have you been?" and reccomended I see a fine and colorful French film. Often I wonder, what if we ran into each other rounding a corner in this overcrowded city? But I know you've tried to forget me as best as you could. You were the first man I ever loved so always a piece of my heart is yours. Remember the better more than the worse. I guess Anatole was right. Life is sweet, bitter, and that is everything. Love is so fickle when you are young and time is a wave crashing on a shore you can't find. Oh, just to see your face while awake and my eyes are open. You were the first man I ever loved so always a piece of my heart is yours. Remember the better more than the worse. I guess Anatole was right. Life is sweet, bitter, and that is everything. You were my everything back when my heart was worth more than my head. I knew you then, you knew me then. So, it's been ages. We have both grown but sometimes these old feelings haunt me like ghosts. You were the first man I ever loved so always a piece of my heart is yours. Remember the better more than the worse. I guess Anatole was right. Life is sweet, bitter, and that is everything.

I like to dote on unfortunate events a bit... so? It doesn't mean the optimist is gone. She comes and goes like the wind and flows as water does on coasts. I cheat a bit does it make me out to be the bad In everybody who likes to dance with dark? And who are you to say that I am wrong? I'd like it very much, sir, If you took your foot out of my mouth, 'N' placed it right on the ground to feel the earth shake about. If we are all a cosmic joke, I plan on laughin' all the way down. Beat what you will, I've never been the type to take a dive. Follow your scene or grander scheme to peers that make you a minute man so they don't have to sacrifice. To all the people in my groove, I offer songs for sycophants. Do what you do as long as you don't make me part of your masterplan. I'm just here to pass the time I'd like it very much, sir, If you took your foot out of my mouth, 'N' placed it right on the ground to feel the earth shake about. If we are all a cosmic joke, I plan on laughin' all the way down. Follow me to where we belong. Underground. I'd like it very much, sir, If you took your foot out of my mouth, 'N' placed it right on the ground to feel the earth shake about. If we are all a cosmic joke, I plan on laughin' all the way down. All the way down...
