LYRICS

FACE IT

A false hope - a fear that's leading me.
These situations were avoided for your thought of them affecting me.

For all you know, just see that these were the thoughts that I’ve been fighting letting go.
I don’t need to hear what you have or you say. You’ve proven to be the least attracted to change.
We both know.

Face it. You want to know what it means.
Take it. It shouldn’t be hard to find peace.

There's no pain to pass around this one-windowed home.
These old empty words could still mean more than what's to come.
So cure the shame, but I’ve seen myself inside of this.
It's the shattered piece of time that I will never get back from us.

Don't you see what you’ve done? The same damn things I did when I was fighting moving on.
Please don’t try to describe all the pain. You years ago, who held on to today, seems sane.
We both know.

Face it. You want to know what it means.
Take it. It shouldn’t be hard find peace.

COME TO LIFE

I don't think this should be - all of the things that you think you are seeing, 
and conceited me, and the things I am feeling. Well, I don't anymore. 

What's the point? You can't be all of the things that you wish you were being.
The conceited you and the time you were stealing from me. I don't care anymore.

I can't tell why she don't feel it and I can't take more of your excuses.
When all my secrets come to life, I swear that nothing that I love ever stays alive.

Well, you don't think you should take even half of the blame, 
so I guess I'll let it fall on me. I swear you don't care anymore. 
I'm so sick of this false statement shit and your lack of response to me. 
I just wish you cared more.

KEEP TIME

On the table lies a book of all my suspicions.
For my own protection I’ve been keeping time.
I know that you can feel my lungs.
But my heart and my hands can feel your presence approaching me.

Stay where you are. I want to see what you’ve come for.
After a while I’ll become what you’ve come for.
Tell me when I see you again.
That I am alive and I’ve been waiting to see you again.

On the paper lies a list of all your intentions,
but for your own protection we’ll lose in time.
I know that you still taste his tongue.
It's the lingering effect of you never moving on.

Are you facing your thoughts now?
Will you face me eventually?

SILVERSIDE

So I don’t mind what happens now,
because you will portray this a different way.
I’ve felt so inclined to take benefit over doubt
to give myself a better name.

Your eyes roll to the back of your mind. Oh, what do you see in there?
This scene relays right in front of our eyes, and I think we’ve found a cure.

The things we need they come and go.
There's something else aside from these I’ve been dying to get to know.

Your eyes roll to the back of your mind. Oh, what do you see in there?
This scene relays right in front of our eyes, and I think we’ve found a cure.

Please say why you feel this way and pray for the patience given to me.
If you can’t take this anguish seriously,
then blind yourself on the silverside of these wooden wings.

So please don't mind what happens now.
You will portray this a different way.
You’ve felt so inclined to take the breath right out of my mouth
to give yourself a better name.

Your eyes roll to the back of your mind. Oh, what do you see in there?
This scene relays right in front of our eyes, and I think we’ve found a cure
for these things we need. There's got to be something else.

CAUSE OF THE CHOIR

I've been watching you pace through the living room alone. 
I have no arms. I can’t reach you.
I’ve been watching you play in the dark with our daughter.
You still don’t know how to reach her.

You’ve been watching them replacing alarms from the fire.
We still don’t know what was left here.
You don’t want me to come home - don’t want me to see her.
But deep down, we were the cause of the choir.

You say you don’t want to be alone.
You say you don’t want to be at home anymore.
I call you a liar, but you forget your own past.

There is nothing left but two mounds of dirt lined with pictures.
She’ll try not to laugh, but humor of nothingness haunts her.
I don’t know if I’ll be able to move closer.
Remember, I was the cause of the fire.

You say you don’t want to be alone.
You say you don’t want to be at home anymore.
I call you a liar, but you forget your own past.

FOREST

So what do you think about these trees?
I can almost see you and I growing old with them.
You’re always waiting to come back to a love existing in a forest we can’t get to.
What is there to come back to?
Another lie to myself that things will change.
For you and your bitter tired eyes.
I’m sorry, I just can’t take this anymore.
(Come back)

Oh, how long will this take for you to see? It's not the walls of this forest protecting me.
Oh, how long will this take? I’m over-thinking things. It's something that I can’t change.

I think I’m starting to see these things in my dreams.
Tell me, is this something I should worry about?
These things we need have been farther away than they seem.
Nothing will come back. No, they won’t come back.
I just can’t take this anymore.
(Come back)

Oh, how long will this take for you to see? It's not the walls of this forest protecting me.
Oh, how long will this take? I’m over-thinking things. It's something that I can’t change.
(Come back)

LA CIUDAD

Any chance that I could be alone, 
or any way to forget what’s been done? 
Because all these dreams are telling me the same things. 
It’s the same scene; just a different name. 
So what makes one feel and know that I have to
make myself take this pain and put it to use? 
And what makes this city so special that I’d say, “Stay”? 

At first glance it seems like it would be the truth. 
Your influence over me; I can’t refuse. 
And at first chance, the simplest lie could come out of you. 
So what makes one feel that I’d have to
make myself take this pain and put it to use? 
And what makes this city so special that I’d say, “Stay”?

CLOUDS

I can’t tell why my hands have felt so heavy. 
Maybe because they’re the only things supporting my heart. 
If there’s a way around making a fool of myself, 
I need to take some time. 
I need to figure it out. 
I need to figure it all out. 

I can’t tell myself that what I'm doing is right, 
or if it’s something that I could ever wrap my head around. 

But I need to know - was I out of reach? 
Because it pains me to see you in love. 

I've been told my eyes look weary. 
Maybe because you’re the only one occupying my sight. 
I’m lost, I’m bound, and you’re found. 
These clouds are doubt and always someone else. 

I can’t tell myself that what I'm doing is right, 
or if it’s something that I could ever wrap my head around. 
But in myself, I feel there’s something controlling my eyes. 
It’s my problem with feeling that I’m worried about. 

But I need to know - was I out of reach? 
I feel you’re holding out on me. 
Because it pains me to see you in love. 
I’m fighting something. 
I shouldn’t be here, but it’s never stopped me before. 

I can’t tell myself that what I’m doing is right. 
It’s something that I could never wrap my head around
And I can’t tell why my hands have felt so heavy. 
Maybe because you’re the one that’s weighing my heart down. 

But I need to know - was I out of reach? 
I feel you’re holding out on me. 
But it pains me to see you in love. 
I’m fighting something I shouldn’t be.

KICKED IN THE FACE

You’ve kept me far away from sleep. 
I didn’t mind at first, 
but now it’s hell and it's eating away at me. 
I don’t expect that you’re catching on. 
I’m dropping hints like I’m dying. 
You’re just so slow to move away. 

Hey, how are you? 
I haven’t talked to you in a long time. 
You just put me through situations I’m not used to. 
So I will still stay stationary for once, 
Be content with who I am, 
It’s all I have. 

I thought I was finally making peace. 
I knew my boundaries at first, but now I don’t, 
and now I’m just making enemies. 
So what separates this love from lust? 
The things I’m afraid of; 
I think I’m afraid of a lot of things.

SYMBOL OF BALANCE

I found a rose hovering above my head, 
giving an inaccurate description of who I am. 
All unloving, impatient, and ungrateful. 
We appear to still have a soul. 

I don’t have many secrets to share with you, 
other than the fact that I’ve been stealing most of my air from you. 
It just tastes so different - untouched and untainted. 
Makes me feel like exhaling is overrated. 

I guess I don’t know - what is normal company? 
Because I am alone more than I’ve ever been. 

Well, I’ve been having a hard time convincing myself
that I’m confident in my ability to leave. 
Still I am having a hard time relying on my will to keep in touch
with my stems, my seeds, and my leaves. 
More than I ever will. 
More than I have ever had the chance to. 

I guess I don’t know - what is normal company? 
Because I am alone more than I’ve ever been. 

She said, “It seems so simple, but every time I die inside.” 
The same old story. 
I guess I don’t know - what is normal company? 
Because I am alone more than I’ve ever been.

SOLAR SYSTEM

How could we throw away unconditional love? 
Like a soul that we wish that we had never been a part of. 
And could this be a test of our patience and wit? 
A poll of vines just telling us that it's time that we quit. 
I have never been a part of something so cruel - someone like you. 

Our hearts are about evenly matched, 
but our pulse seems to skip from our instincts holding our blood back. 
And your mind seems to think that our hands have enough to fix that, 
but I can’t tell and I never will. 

Well, who are you to tell me what I can feel, 
and why I can’t tell you everything that you’ve felt unsure about lately? 
You swore that I would never understand or stay. 

Stay for the sake of - just stay. 
Stay for the sake of me finding you. 

Don’t get overly attached. 
I’ve been inside your mind - how am I supposed to forget that? 
There are too many parts to mind to piece your head back
to what it once was - you don’t want that. 

I have never been a part of something so cruel - someone like you. 
Oh, I have never been a part of something so cruel - someone like... 

Well, who are you to tell me what I can feel, 
and why I can’t tell you everything that you’ve felt unsure about lately? 
You swore that I would never understand or stay. 

Stay for the sake of - just stay. 
Stay for the sake of me finding you. 
Stay for the sake of me losing sleep. 
Stay for the sake of me finding this puzzle piece.

NOCTURNAL

Do you recall what I suggested that we do? 
I think you should do whatever makes you happy. 
Well, I don't think I've ever heard you say that. 
If so, I would have heard it echo in my mind for days on end. 
I still don't believe that it happens. 

I'm not forcing you through this, 
but I know that you're just watching over you. 
I'm just watching over you. 

Say, "Hello", to my dark side. 
I don't believe we've been acquainted, 
but I don't really plan on it. 
I don't really plan on anything anymore. 

What's so special about night time? 
You say, "The air seems lighter", 
but my lungs can only hold a certain type of air; 
the kind you won't find around here. 

You won't find me around here
and it's not my time to come back again. 
There's no more echo - it's all in line, 
so say, "Goodbye", to these days, my friend.

ESCAPE

Would someone who knows me be there when I wake up,  
from what I thought was love, and pull me out of this scene?

I, only I, I've been hoping for this for a long time coming now. 
Oh, just let go, I just don't see this happening again, 
but I feel there's still a chance. 

I won’t be there to orchestrate you back to where you belong. 
It's been far too long for me to have any faith in you. 
I won't be there to set the stakes. 
You'll learn eventually, that what we had affected me. 
You can't admit to anything; to anything. 

I, only I, I've been hoping for this for a long time coming now. 
Oh, just let go, I just don't see this happening again, 
but I feel there's still a chance. 

The stage set, and I'm in character, to move forward and move on. 
But obligations make me sweat it out, to move forward and on. 

I, only I, I've been hoping for this for a long time coming now. 
Oh, just let go, I don't see this happening again, 
but I feel there's still a chance. 

I, only I, I've been hoping for this for a long time. 
Oh, just let go, I just don't see this happening again. 

OUR NATURE

Oh, everything that you want from me, 
and everything you were, I would eventually be. 
So I'll float around just to inherit all your bad habits. 
I feel if you had the choice, you wouldn't have changed a thing. 

Because your heart and your mind have been separated for too long.
It'll be okay; once in a while we're all wrong. 
I never expected you to believe me,  
but I know I speak for the whole room when I say, "Just let it go."

Because your heart and your mind have been separated for too long.  
It’ll be okay; once in a while we're all wrong. 
Because your heart and your mind have been in my life for too long. 
I have a feeling it'll be okay.

Now I'll take my turn writing you back, 
expecting nothing short of the answers in return
to the questions I have and the questions you lack, 
and the things I’ll never tell you because of the bones in my back. 

I've always expected you to leave me,  
but I know I speak for myself when I say, "Just let me go."

And all I can say is I'm tired of being left out of the truth, 
because all I have been is a man of my word. 
Oh, I can't help but to think the worst for you. 
It's part of my nature to put myself first.
