(Instrumental)




2. QUANTUM MECHANICS

It's been so long it seems since summer's captivation
Entranced in nightly dreams,
You can't escape these memories.
Reasons turned into excuses, the one's that i abused
Spinning you round in circles,
Out of breathe and leaving you confused.
The miles in between us.
Forcing different worlds apart.
Exposing these lost feelings i know now where you stand
Now that i see you never really had my heart.
Stop doubting what was said and just know that i am right
Cause im losing all my strength
And i cant take another fight.
If we wait until then we would know
That time was on our side.
But you had to act to quick on the feelings you can't hide
Your voice was broken cracking from the need for air.
The noise that soothes me to sleep.
Your tears came falling, grasping black and writing,
My name upon your cheeks.
And as i open this letter,
I skim the words bathed in your perfume and they said,
"Why cant we see forever.
Our differences will bring us together hiding truths that
Made us unstable now i regret every moment i forgave you"
And that's all i have to remember cause that's all i found




3. ROGER'S AND HOLLAND'S FEELING

There is no trace of a healing.
Your falling tears ignite this selfish feeling.
It keeps me warm to know you're not content.
A quick reminder of our winters spent.
As we consume our last moments together,
A lesson learned that will haunt us forever.
It took an ending for me to realize,
To face these pacts and retract our growing lies.
Don't tell me i was a mistake
And you regret every choice we made.
And think of nothing every time you hear my name
And if you don't bow your head and feel ashamed.
When our eyes last met i knew that you were not ok,
But nothing matters when your surfing on these vibes.
I have these thoughts of holding hands
With you another day. there is no cure, there is no cure
For the sickness that you bring, with what you bring.




4. VACATION TO HELL

Let's let the memories drift away
Let's let the memories drift away

I'm taking down these pictures of you on my wall
these scars still bleed and
I'm letting them drip on our past
I'm torn between decision and dead reckoning
If I'm not fair then tell me, why do you still care?

"Get out the car and walk away"
I said with dried tears in
My eyes hoping you'd ignore my words
You slammed the door and spun around as fast as you could
To get away from all this mess

So take this night
(So take this night)
And search for your answers
I know you'll find what's right
And you'll still put me through hell

I'm taking down these pictures of you on my wall
These scars still bleed and
I'm letting them drip on our past
I'm torn between decision and dead reckoning
If I'm not fair then tell me, why do you still care?

These scars run deep and they cover me
Like an open wound without breathing room
I can't heal like this but it's you I miss
This war won't end

These words are coming out slowly and
I mean it when I say I need you
This war won't end
You keep your heart where
I can barely reach it and yet it's right in front of me
This war won't end
It'd be better off for the both of us
If we'd took these truths and walk away
This war won't end

I'm taking down these pictures of you on my wall
These scars still bleed and
I'm letting them drip on our past
I'm torn between decision and dead reckoning
If I'm not fair then tell me, why do you still care?




5. RAINCLOUDS FOR EYEBALLS

It's safe to come out now,
No one is around,
This sugar coated donut lost its flavor long ago.
And I just don't know what to think,
When your disguise begins to show.
Now I know,
I always think to slow.

'Cause I never
Thought I would miss
Our sweet forever
Of passion violence
But I can't forget
The wretched torment
It's on its noose
And hung beneath my ribs

You're hung beneath my ribs...

Can't you see,
Can't you see,
Why can't you see?

My heart is branded,
It's all your fault.
You're hanging from my ribs,
And I hope you fall.
My heart is branded,
It's all your fault.
You're hanging from my ribs,
And I hope you fall...

'Cause I never
Thought I would miss
Our sweet forever
Of passion violence
But I can't forget
The wretched torment
It's on its noose
And hung beneath my ribs




6. DESERVING AN EXPLANATION

This seam is splitting, torn apart.
Lacerations from the thoughts of you.
Choking me, your words shoved down my throat.
And i'm still bleeding from our first kiss.
The taste so painful i'm forced to clench my fists.
Every time you turn around, you'll feel my presence.
And when you glance up at the stars.
Everyone will be crashing down on you, whoa,
You'll see me, the sky, calling out your name.
And yet for some reason,
I still absent mindedly come back for more.
Maybe someday
I'll realize that this storm will someday pass me by.




7. HATHWAY LANE

Why don't you use your knives,
Continue to stick them in my face
Leave them to be our memories
That I plan to lose
Just like I lost you

I guess I'll just cope with what I can't control
After all it means the best for the both of us

At night when you hear me breathing
Under the covers is where you'll find me
Trying to escape your endless reign of terror
Stale sweat running all over my body
I'm drowning in my dreams
I'm drowning in my dreams
I can't wake now
I'll sleep forever
I can't wake now

What if tomorrow never comes
How will I know you loved me?
I just need something to live for
So I'll never die again.
What if tomorrow never comes
How will I know you loved me?
I just need something to live for
So I'll never die again. Again.




8. LINDSAY QUIT LOLLYGAGGING

Bite my tongue, right now the perfect time
Do anything to make her happy
Even if it means my being miserable
As long as she's loving life

I will be able to sleep at night
With a smile upon her face
I will be able to sleep at night
With a smile upon her face

Thought of a smile not being there
My inner feelings would be shattered
A piece of glass puncturing my heart
I'm bleeding from the inside

I will be able to sleep at night
With a smile upon her face
I will be able to sleep at night
With a smile upon her face

As long as she's perfectly fine
I hope she's perfectly fine
And some day she will be mine

I will be able to sleep at night
With a smile upon her face

As long as she's perfectly fine
I hope she's perfectly fine
And some day she will be mine
