Old crow in a winter’s storm He’s too cold to fly to warmth And once was there for comfort Will slowly do you in Well this is what you wanted And that were it begins A portrait vibrant but the subjects lighten They only see what they want to see So far from perfect but they don’t notice They only see what they want to see So sit alone and enjoy the silence Accompanied by the southern state Watch the street lights burn so lonely Just to retreat at the break of the day You can lie here in bed Or you can conquer your fears and put one step after the next And leave this shitty place so far behind A portrait vibrant but the subjects lighten They only see what they want to see So far from perfect but they don’t notice They only see what they want to see All the canons on the coast All fire all alone And if im carried away with the tide will currents Cross our paths tonight’s A portrait vibrant but the subjects lighten They only see what they want to see So far from perfect but they don’t notice They only see what they want to see Don’t pull away now ( all the doubt that has grown has only come from me) x4

Im fine I wish I never called So haunt your ghost What do they know? And have they seen you at your worst Another night another bed Another morning ill regret I wrote the note you swore you never read The distance was the death Is there something that I’m missing? Cause I’m calling but you’re not listening So where’d you go How have you been? This time last year you were in town So lets go back for just one day And ill own up to have the blame If you’ll admit you missed me when I strayed I wish I never stayed But I’m done chasing ghost Trapped inside my bones Dead before I die Dead while I’m alive

Ive got holes in my heart That match the holes in my belt Ive got lots of big plans But they never end well And the holes in my palms So delicately dressed I got lots of big plans man There all in my head Theyre ghost in these walls Said we speak when im dead And I got plenty of friends man Theyre all in my head A voice is begging me oh please just turn the car around But its to late I wrote the note that they already found So don’t coming looking for me Don’t coming looking for me And you were so fucking sure that you were the cure Just stand there as you watch me all but burn Were unfinished Every last one of us We must stop living in fear and in faith of the future Because were afraid of how things will end otherwise And we must paint oh we must paint In love in loss and in depth And in time a picture vacant fills all the way No don’t you come (looking for me)

This war is my own I go it alone And your never home When I need you I don’t sleep at night When you’re on my mind So why cant I hide What im thinking She said shes proud of my accomplishments I said im sick of all her compliments Why does the wind blow In every direction but home Why do I burn out Instead of enjoying the glow So harbor your thoughts In the safety of port And when there ignored Well whose to blame Tour myself wide open just to see what was inside And all I found was such a hallow man with many things to hide I hope your choking on the feeling that you get when I am not around This constant sound of silence like a ghost will always haunt this town Why does the wind blow In every direction but home Why do I burn out Instead of enjoying the glow She said I talked to god about you yesterday Take your medicine You got stop with these self-destructive ways Take your medicine

Cant get you off my mind today I wish you knew how much I wanted you to stay But I was constantly growing (its all the same not much has changed) And constantly doubting I lost myself along the way And the years I spent here aren’t so meaningless Hey dear I know your lying Wont you come here and Make me feel like all this time that I was Worth the weight You spent the last 6 months just wrecking your head For weak foundations the thoughts you thought I never left I wish I never left But im better off this way that’s When I am states away You no my heart will stray But if you keep on walking youll find your way back And I am homeward bound Where I am safe in sound Just know if you keep on walking youll find your way back You know oswegos calling you to come back You know one more winter wont be so bad But im better off this way that’s When I am states away You no my heart will stray But if you keep on walking youll find your way back You know oswegos calling you to come back You know one more winter wont be so bad

Im a sucker for one liners And you bet I can make this quick I was staying afloat in apathy but I made the choice to live But the worlds a scary place And I just cant seem to see escape ill be in my room Day 2 im getting out of here Cause these bed sheets make me sweat And im crawling in my skin A vision seen but I don’t get it And I didn’t have a choice No I didn’t have a choice admit to that Oh my god its been far to long My friends ive lost And my home is gone And I don’t know just were ill go (but you wont find me) I know your hoping and your wishing That im getting myself better But despite these pills and despite this weather If I die in November take your sisters place Would come to my funeral or show up late And as your marching down the pews Your marking of my sins as your mermer To yourself he let the devil win Instead of trading it off you gave up, caved in Giving away what you could have been Yeah right youll call me back And when you do ill be ready to chat I know your just a phone (its not that band) I know your just a phone away

Stagger just pace your breath Your so restless you haven’t slept You were rambling like a madman On a painted canvas black And this will haunt you like an ember Haunts a forest in july So I aimed my car for a tree by the road I said a quick prayer then I drove and I drove and I drove See the lies you sown See the web the web you wove And when you crash your car And flee the scene What a waste you could have been something Listen its just this constant repetition In my mind but I don’t listen I buried the bones that your digging up She said pull the trigger no one will miss you I said pull the trigger they wont fucking miss you No they wont no they wont no they wont See the lies you sown See the web the web you wove And when you crash your car And flee the scene What a waste you could have been something And if I mend this distance Oh nothing here will be different I just know that ive gotta climb my way back out Looking back on all my friends The webs we wove they all made sense And now its ten years gone not much has changed Stick around or never feel the same don’t change

Gulls lost souls of sailors Remind me of the land so far away The seas are rising slowly I can taste the ocean air As it tickles my tongue The waves are crashing on The deck but all is calm The sea takes seven more of her sons Oooo what do you want from me this vessels sinking and I cant do a fucking thing And have a heart in me saids wait until morning When theres no hope you bet everything So I went under So I went Oooo what do you want from me this vessels sinking and I cant do a fucking thing And have a heart in me said wait until morning But theres no hope and you lost everything I was born from nothing Turned myself into something But heaven wont let me in When the coast line is fading And the deck lights flicker away Just know your on your own now The coast guards a day away So as you start to reflect on your untimely death Or the incredible depth This ship will sink This ship will sink

See the window See another pane Just shades of grey In the world they say I just wanna be alone for a while See myself through a distorted view Another day and a thought of you I just wanna be alone for a while But you got plans and you don’t even know What you want from the things that you can’t let go So you say that I changed and im lacking passion Well im not the man that you once knew Im blackened beaten blistered and bruised Where were you when I was going under And ive been doing my best not to fade Not to burn out drift and give into pain Where were you when I was going under And I got plans but you don’t even know What you want and the things that I cant let go So you say that I changed and im lacking passion Your always running and it never caught up to you But now its over and theres nothing left to prove In this distance let it grow in solitude But this is my life and theres no place left for you And I got plans but you don’t even know What you want and the things that I cant let go So you say that I changed and im lacking passion So fuck you and your passion

If I leave you tomorrow Will you love me the same? After two years of chasing And missing your name And If I fall asleep right next two you Who will take my place? When I’m not in your room I’m done waiting Your time was through All my problem’s paths Lead straight to you I know I’ve changed But I’m better off without you I know that its Been hard for you to stray I spent three years just feeling that way Wishing the best and confessing your name Time spent forever a week was a day And don’t you know my love I was tired to But now that I’ve come to grips ill omit Fuck you to! In a room full of friends they all notice But they don’t say a word cause the know it When everyone fucking left you’re on your own Don’t hold your breath I’ll stop blaming you for everything that went wrong Ill stop complaining about my life and how you were gone If you were I and I were you would you see differently Would you care would you call would you just blame it all on me
