Track Name: Perforated
I read through all your letters
From the winter of
79 in December
Before you lost your way
I couldn't bare the words you wrote
To another man a life ago
But it never made a difference
You were made to fall apart

And I carry this with me
Everywhere I go
You were so in love

Yeah, so in love
Yeah, but love just wasn’t enough
just wasn’t enough
If what could have been never was
maybe we’d be better off
yeah, so in love

But how could I forget
The house that we grew up in
The place that taught resentment
When we were way too young
The way you felt was raw
Palpable and blatant
an obvious disregard
to the life you left forsaken

And so I carry it with me
everywhere I go
You were so in love

It doesn't matter how you made it
Love born from new life is jaded
Nothing's built to last
When promises are perforated

Your promises were perforated.
Track Name: White Water
If it was all because we don’t understand you

I’d love the chance to say my piece
but you won’t hear a word,
no you won’t hear a thing
and I’m done trying to explain

you had your mind made up
that it was never enough
to live up to your expectations
and now The more you fake it
the more it shows
you’re a liar and everyone knows it

And I’m sick and tired

It it was all because we don’t understand you
all because nobody could see
than why is it so hard to believe you
right now, you’re not proving anything

I’ve been underestimating your
lack of integrity
and how strong it can be
but you can regret
what you didn’t choose
and you can’t take back
what was never even your to lose
never even yours to lose

It it was all because we don’t understand you
all because nobody could see
than why is it so hard to believe you
right now, you’re not proving anything
we saw the writing on the walls
with every little choice that you made
we never wanted it to be this way
but you dug your own grave

So take a step back
get a little perspective
we both know its better off this way
do yourself a favor
and call it what it is
its the white water under a burned bridge

If it was all because we don’t understand you
all because nobody could see
than why is it so hard to believe you
right now, you’re not proving anything
we saw the writing on the wall
with every little choice that you made
we never wanted it to be this way
but you dug your own grave
