1.
Flight 03:25
The drip of the times that fall in your eyes The cries that flood all over the side The strip of the lights that warm up your night The drug that drains your fight and flight Lets you die adored Lets you see what you're looking for
2.
Personality 03:53
It's your personality that draws me in Makes me want to stick to you through thick or thin We were born with a soul so lets all be human now Don't stand at the side, don't look at your feet There's a future under lights if you can love what you see Strip the disguise, it's easy to show you how I'm sorry for what I did There's not much difference between me and the kid I'm sorry for what I've done It's just me and love and the never wanted son You've all the possibility of anyone else But flowers won't last, don't keep them shelved Lose the need for validation, keep it in your memory now You sense the positivity you walk some more If the devil comes knocking don't answer the door This night is for the living put your soul to the floor
3.
Heart 04:46
He was young and you taught him religion isn't a spell Then the bad men came and took you away and it made him believe in Hell But you're there forever You made my heart It was dark, you pulled up to park He wandered the street that night to see him and her in the light But you pulled out a knife, made him beg for his life You made my heart You brought home a man, he broke his hand He kicked in the door when he heard you having him in the walls You turned his heart into tar, so you could live in the bar You made my heart You were the star and you dragged him screaming into the fight But the fight was lost when the art got tossed and he started believing your hype But he needed his brother You made my heart He was a mental case, tried to take off his face He couldn't explain himself so he pushed all of you away But his saving grace, he made it easy for you to put him away You made my heart
4.
You have a sense of Spring about you Like new birth or a new Moon But that bloom won't last, like a love lost too soon The coming of October and you lose your perfume But I still believe our love is like a sheltering tree I'll hold you close I'll be in pain if I'm free Head into Summer blessed with you my blue Forget the winter bruised and cruel tied to you You have a sense of Autumn about you Like new earth or a blood Moon But that love won't last like a joke that's lost its teeth Like a beast that's ready to take to sleep But I still believe that our love is like a sheltering tree I'll hold you close I'll be in pain if I'm free It will be kinder in memory
5.
You lied You sick fuck Left us haunted Guilty for our blindness Hid your sick thoughts behind a veil of shyness Dark, unforgivable The intellect you spat at us feels bloody Like when a Boxer spits in a bucket Fuck it If you'd have had a heart I would cook it You were born wrong You know what you did You're barely worth the song Your dead to us kid You may as well have died I don't write this lightly Your pipe and ponytail The guilt that makes you pale You coward, lost in yourself Weeping for respect Of the secret disputable Your blatant disregard for the young and corruptible
6.
Inside always knew that you were better dead, always did The decline, always, is always quicker the further you take them in You played to win You talk of love sunshine but the taste of love is hidden better in a cheap bottle of Wine Don't cross this line I still draw you close It's so easy to play you, you honest fool I hate you the most It's so easy to lie when you're so cool I'm in with the host It's so easy to play you, you honest fool I love you the most It's so easy to lie when you're so cool Sublime, always, always knew that you were better bled, always did The prize is always, to always know that you were never led You never said You talk of love sunshine but the greatest love is taken better with a sweet bottle of Wine don't cross this line
7.
Take some time to find your mind love What's right for you I know what's in there I see you're scared Your breath lights up my space My decline painted on my face Take some time to find your heart love What's right for you
8.
Tell the tale How you sent me inside my shell The worst mistake was you left me in spite You alone I'll spare from I do You alone I'll spare from that Should I bend to your will Or will I lose the selfish side of myself Sell the tale I'm pale and empty inside my cell Draw the blinds The light scalds me Then turn around and get out You alone I'll spare from I do You alone I'll spare from that
9.
No 05:06
You know who I am and what I am trying to say Of loves lost, crooked hands and how we lost the game To show you who I am But I can't no But I can't no But I can't They know who I am and what I want to be To dig into hardened hearts, to find their empathy To show them who they are But I can't no But I can't no But I can't I know who I am and what I'm trying to show The clown who doesn't laugh, the flame that's lost its glow The pain that shouldn't last But I can't grow But I can't grow But I can't
10.
Demons 05:01
Through the trials of it all I know that you suffered I know what you lost do you? Because I've been there before and looked to the core And kicking will just bring me back to the door Try to believe me Take me over the edge I feel safe in trouble I know what you caught do you? Still have cracks head to toe from where she stuck the knife in The memories she gave me won't let me move You still don't believe me And if you get the chance to run away I think you should Cos I will find a way to keep you close no matter what the consequence And If you get the chance to run away I think you should Because my demons don't need exercise they're healthy enough And now you believe me
