Track Name: Let Go
First night of rain in months
A bump of shoulders on the crosswalk
An apologetic number
Waking up from my alarm clock

Not much unlike the others
Her minds set
I've got to pull myself together
Don’t leave yet

The cold morning after
Outside with a cigarette
As you leave I reach out
With words better left unsaid

Talk to me, talk to me a minute more
Let me know, Let me know why you're so hard to let go
Come with me, come with me another tonight
Stay with me, stay with me, you know

I can't quite figure you out

Sometimes the things we take for granted
Our right under our noses

I’m not asking for much,
Just a prolonging of your touch

The cold morning after
Outside with a cigarette
As you leave I reach out
With words better left unsaid

Talk to me, talk to me a minute more
Let me know, Let me know why you're so hard to let go
Come with me, come with me another tonight
Stay with me, stay with me, you know

I can't quite figure you out

Talk to me, talk to me a minute more
Let me know, Let me know why you're so hard to let go
Come with me, come with me another tonight
Stay with me, stay with me, you know

I can't quite figure you out
Track Name: Softly Spoken Words
When your legs, they grow heavy
And all the wind in your hair dies down
All the things you keep avoiding
Choke you in from miles around
Another line in the mirror
Then you fall straight to the ground
You hide your thoughts onto paper
When the night has run out

And oh how time stands still
When you’re in between
The powers that be
The light at the end of the tunnels
Sill too blinding to see
It’s too hard to breath
When you run from me

So when your ink runs dry
Your hand still writes till it breaks
Memories found in scars
As you write it all off as mistake
You push yourself further away
And it can all but bridge the gap
All the thoughts it’s taken away
It’s done nothing to give back

And oh how time stands still
When you’re in between
The powers that be
The light at the end of the tunnels
Sill too blinding to see
It’s too hard to breath
When you run from me

How such softly spoken words carry on
Changing every single thing you’ve ever known
You’re no longer stuck here all alone
Finally you have a place you call home

How such softly spoken words carry on
Track Name: Volition
I could feel that night eye glaring down at me
Bright as I swear I've ever seen
We spoke softly with cold air on our cheeks
They were footsteps made easy
Wherever you take me
That’s where I'd be

This fork in the road leaves the mind in panic
Take the right trail, or the left, does it matter?
First foot before the second
This is all just a dream
This is all just a dream

I’m stuck on the last words that you spoke
The choice was made for me
One or the other, both the same
What’s left to choose between?
Don’t hesitate
Don’t hesitate

To look back

Such a lonesome turn of events
Makes one expect the unexpected
Such a lonesome turn of events
Makes one face what they’ve regretted

We’ll just have to learn to live without

And the hardest part will be
Living without your nicotine
Long nights spent gritting teeth
Are over, are over

I’m stuck on the last words that you spoke
The choice was made for me
One or the other, both the same
What’s left to choose between?
Don’t hesitate
Don’t hesitate

I could feel that night eye glaring down at me
Bright as I swear I've ever seen
Track Name: Even Know
We drove
Just two friends and myself
Far too fast for chasing hopes
Leading to a sharp turn left
From a shattered broken glass
And a door pulled off its hinge
Comes a mangled play of hands
That is much too hurt to mend
Tire marks still claim to show
Where a good friend once was lost
But what we still fail to know
Is why it didn’t kill us all
But that still wont make you see
Nothing will ever help you know
You say he gave his life to pride
How could you say you

Even Know

You scream his name in vain
With a hard, unbreaking will
His reckless way of life
Nearly got us all killed
You curse him in his grave
For letting his life go
You say it’s too hard to forgive
How could you say you

Even Know

As you let go
Tears run down your face
You aim to clear you best friends name
But no praise will take the place
Of the despair of the blind
That you’ll never let show
Others claim to share your pain
How could they say they

Even Know
Track Name: Vices
The turbulence of it all exhales black tar
When you can't of your own accord
Uphill battles don’t mind if we’re weary
If so many packs earlier you had only told me

You can say it’s the last one
That you wont give in
But your hell bound lifestyle
Won’t let you win
We keep lighting both ends
And expecting a difference
A great man once said,
It’s on what sanity depends

Smoke rings like lassos,
Around our necks
And bull’s eyes,
Set on our backs
Surely this last offer
We won’t regret

The turbulence of it all exhales black tar
When you can't of your own accord
Uphill battles don’t mind if we’re weary
If so many packs earlier you had only told me

These cigarette butts keep piling up
Its like I breathe in the smoke
But it’s never enough
She can’t soothe my addiction
She can’t soothe my addiction

They say that failure breed’s success
So don’t let the bastards get you down

Gasps are made commonplace
As lungs grow heavy with habits
Kindly they’ll ask what wrong
As all the handrails become crutches
