Track Name: Deadset
Lately I,
I've made myself believe
The only things in life I'd ever need
Were right there
Right there in front of me.
But now I'm scared to death
Of what I might have left.
Regret is like a wave
The sea is taking over me.

But I've been working
too hard for too long to let go
I've been working too hard for to long to let

I've tried my best
But I'm defenseless
And it's got me down again
The way I feel
It pulls like gravity
And it's starting to sink in
But I've been working
Too hard for too long to let

Go and see what else it out there
As long as you come home
My body hates that you're so far
When I've never felt so alone.
I'm finding it so hard to be myself
When you're already yourself with
Someone else

I've tried my best
But I'm defenseless
And it's got me down again
(With someone else)
The way I feel
It pulls like gravity
And it's starting to sink in
But I've been working
Too hard for too long to let go
And so it shows
(And so it shows)
I've been working to hard
For too long to let go

And I'm keeping calm the best I can
But I can't stop my shaking hands

The same lungs that have kept me breathing
They're giving up but oh, you would know
Cause I'm still here and my hearts still beating
And I've been working too hard for too long to let go
Track Name: Suffer
live like the sun
A steady move from east to west
With my hopes up
That you'd be there when I got home
But I heard the news from someone
That you'd moved along
And taken pieces of the best of me with you

I think it's safe to say
What I forgot to mention
And If I get lost along the way
At least I learned a lesson

That home is right there where I left it
But as long as you're around
Then I can't say it's where the heart is

Hold my breath
And suffer (and suffer)
The consequence
Of questions unanswered
Will you be there waiting for me
When there's nothing left to take
Will you be there waiting for me when

I know you're young enough
And naive to believe in
That "everything thing that happens
Happens for a reason"
But I'm more of a pessimist, I must admit
Either way I'm wearing thin
But I'm coming to terms
And learning to deal with it

Hold my breath
And suffer (and suffer)
The consequence
Of questions unanswered
Will you be there waiting for me
When there's nothing left to take
Will you be there waiting for me
When there's nothing left to take

Outside of your second story window
I waited for you to come home again.
Of all of the dead ends I could have taken
I remembered the one that I hated
Like the back of my hand

Of all of the dead ends I could have taken
I remember the one that I hated
Like the back of my hand

Hold my breath
And suffer (and suffer)
The consequence
Of questions unanswered
Will you be there waiting for me
When there's nothing left to take
Will you be there waiting for me
When there's nothing left to take

Outside of your second story window
Track Name: The Current
Have some faith in me
I'm better late than never
If I'm know for anything.
Just late enough to know you're gone
We can only drift so far.
Like falling leaves under the trees
Of autumn in our back yard

But I'm checking the odds
And calling the cards
The ones that I've held in my hands from the start
And all of the words
You screamed from the top
The top of your lungs
Well they wrote you a song
They wrote you a song

Have some faith in me
The path we took together isn't gone
But only weathered
And if you decide to give up on me
There's comfort in the past
It doesn't have to be where you're going


But I'm checking the odds
And calling the cards
The ones that I've held in my hands from the start
And all of the words
You screamed from the top
The top of your lungs
Well they wrote you a song
They wrote you a song

They wrote you a song

I walked the rivers edge
And brought it to my feet
Let the tide surround me
So that I could finally breathe
I took a step inside
And it brought me too my knees
Felt the pressure lifting up
As it began to carry me

I walked the rivers edge
And brought it to my feet
Let the tide surround me
So that I could finally breathe
I took a step inside
And it brought me too my knees
Felt the pressure lifting up
As the current carried me

The current carried me
The current carried me

I'm checking the odds
And calling the cards
The ones that I've held in my hands from the start
And all of the words
You screamed from the top
The top of your lungs
Well they wrote you a song
They wrote you a song
