Track Name: War Town
I was raised in a war town
My eyelids held back the ghosts
I wonder if they do the same to me

There was a train that passed by in the night
I used to think that it would take me take me to the sea
But when I finally reach the shore
My eyes were met with stained ceilings

Bury me, carry me
Home

I was raised in a war town
My eyelids held back the ghosts
I wonder if they do the same to me

I am older now and I wonder if they do the same to me

Carry me home
Track Name: Stargazer
Death pulls its reins on me
And cuts like broken glass on my shoulders
I just want to know if there will be a light at the end of the tunnel

Kill the house lights

My wings were clipped when I was young
There were scars but that's all they ever were

Keep faith, keep alive
Be afraid, be very afraid

Keep faith, keep alive
I'm trying to keep the light behind my eyes

This isn't an anthem of repentance
This is a song of acceptance
But you're too blind to see the difference
You're cowardice will end your existence

Be afraid, be very afraid

I just want to know if there will be a light at the end of the tunnel

I used to look at clouds and think of God
Now I only look at clouds and think of rain

Kill the house lights

Be afraid, be very afraid
Track Name: The Only Living Boy in the Mid Atlantic
You are not god so pry the nails from your hands
Cut the roots and drag the tree to the top of the hill

You wear a crown and you call yourself king
But you will never be king

Warm your bones by the glow of the spotlight
It's shining only on you
Every scar, every blemish shown
It's shining only on you

I am covered in well known demons
So what engulfs you?

What engulfs you?
Track Name: Old Hands
Heart to heart
I left a lot of things on the second floor
And I locked the door

Maybe I'm just growing up
And my skin doesn't fit anymore

You told me that
I'm the captain of this vessel
Maybe I'm just a bad person

I wanted to leave
I wanted to carve out shorelines
And set suns behind horizons
To make someone proud
Anyone proud

I wanted to make you proud
I wanted to make you see my name in lights

The ship is sunk
Maybe I'm just a bad person

But I bite my tongue
And I walk away
And make the world a lot bigger than me

Well, look at me
Your son the hero
Track Name: Black Lodge
Maybe one day
I'll stop tracing my scars
And learn to clean them

Because when I look in the mirror
All I see are hopeless endeavors

The times I stood
And the times I stumbled
The times I stood
And I always stumble

Death can wait

When the lights go out
I can't close my eyes
When the bottles empty
I can hear my own lies

If death is the end let's start at the beginning
When I had my innocence
And life was worth living

Death can wait for me
While I sing songs for my lovers
And I write eulogies for the gutters
Life is out there
And I promise I'm coming home soon
I'm coming home soon

I want to know if the choir still sings when I'm gone
Will you sing when I'm gone?
Track Name: Sans Amour
It was selfish of me to think that I could keep you
When I can't keep myself from the edge of the roof

It was me
It was always me
And how I can't keep from staring at soft light
From under the streetlights
Or the dirt collected under your fingernails

Maybe I should bite my tongue through
To keep myself from spouting hollow words

Maybe I should bite straight through
Bite through

Sans amour
Carry me home
Sans amour
God rest my soul

There's a hole in the world
Made for lovers to jump into
You'll go down, I'll follow you
Maybe we'll fall forever
You're beautiful and I'm broken
I guess that's the difference between forever and never

How could you love me?

Sans amour
God rest my soul
Sans amour
Carry me home

Sans amour
How could you love me?
Track Name: Indigo
You always say that life is fleeting
I feel it haunt me every night
I always feel that love is leaving
Unless I still put up a fight
Track Name: Locust Grove
I'm twenty two years old
And holding shards of hope
I've got my whole life to decide

If I could yell back to the past
I'd say to stay steady because everything sways eventually

I gnaw my kills back to the bone
Hoping to find solace in the marrow

But all I found were my teeth snarling back at me
Wash the blood my lips
Drag me back to the world
I've seen more than enough

I've got my whole life to decide who I'll be when I die

After last year my soul laid in a grave
If life is short, take it away

I guess I'm still waiting
For the streetlights to burn out
I heard my name in the humming

And after all these years it's numbing
That after all these years it's still humming
Track Name: Prime
I can look out onto the river
And see a world that's encompassing me
And I can look out into the mirror
And see nothing much at all

Every moment I think to settle
Is a moment I think run
And I can hear the poetry in it all

This is harsh light
When I'm looking back
(Trying to see where I once stood)
And the feeling I left something behind
(I wanted to save you and I did all that I could)

I saw the light in your eyes
But turned away afraid you wouldn't see mine

It'll stick if I keep repeating
It'll all make sense if I just keep staring

I saw you sweat
You watched me burn

Last night I saw myself sleeping
I knew I wasn't really dreaming
I awoke to the sound of nothing
And the silence is screaming
Track Name: I Saved Latin, What Did You Ever Do?
I keep pushing the grave
And look to see what I'm dragging behind me
I see the times I stood tied to the times I stumbled

I see the fight and the fall
And I see you and you see me
When I go I want the loves of my life to scatter me among the places I've never been and I want to be lost along the way

When I die don't bury me
For I'm a man of sin and nothing

Suffocate me
Drown me in light
I saw myself; ring of bone
Suffocate me
Drown me in sin
I saw myself; ring of bone
