Track Name: The Rules Of Attraction
Everything in front of me seemed like fair-game
if I've got time to occupy. I think I need an escape.
I think I've made a mistake, but it wouldn't be the first time.
Selfish thoughts turn into guilt before my eyes.
I'm sure that my sins will find me out.
Pawning off excuses on my composure being lost.
I'm busy keeping up with the person I don't want to be.
I'm barely keeping up with the person I don't want to be.
And my words? They're not as real as they seem.
Track Name: Walking Calmly In Your Wake
The problem is, that these promises are only as good as the ones who make them.
We all have been ashamed of exactly the same things.
All I've got is a deep breath.
And I can hear you on the other side of the phone
Trying to pretend that I don't know
About all the problems you've come up with
Just to cover up this
Mess you've created out of something unrelated
to exactly what's going on.
We all have been ashamed of exactly the same things.
All I've got is a deep breath, and an excuse.
While I'm walking calmly in your wake
My anchors pull me further from the truth
I never meant to keep you hopeful
My anchors pull me further from you.
So please uncross your fingers.
Please uncross your fingers.
Track Name: Words With Friends
Every year, I am brought back to the same places.
It's like my mind begs me to catch up to the thoughts I've had a billion times already.
So-long. So-long to better days.
So afraid, too afraid to face the road of failure I've paved to find my way back home.
I'll leave a trail of stones to prove I've had my prouder moments.
Suddenly, my time alone means so much more.
I know this heart is well known for falling apart,
But I'll learn to rely on the sunshine and the weather
To forget all our time together.
I've got that itch again.
To make things worse in steady increments.
When the walls caved in, I was left to my own devices.
And I learned
that day that I'm more real than concrete.
And now I know...
I'm not afraid.
Track Name: Everything's Eventual
We both said "it's been a long time coming, but let's make no mistake about why we're here".
And although I knew how wrong it was, I never felt so honest in my life.
I said I'd make a believer out of you.
Half hoping for the truth about how you don't "believe in love".
But I believe in you.
It's just miles and time that separate the greatest walls.
My nights now spent confessing to pillows everything done under sheets.
My tired eyes only saw what they wanted which was just a way for me to cope with the distance.
But I was just making up for lost time.
Just imagine what this could have been.
I just couldn't keep it together.
It's not what I wanted this to be.
Track Name: Maybe, Just Maybe
"Lately I've been thinking that you're just out of the question,
and no I don't have an answer as to why".
Enormous changes at the last second end up to equal the way we measure people.
Maybe, just maybe I will learn that I got what I deserved.
And you said
"I should have came prepared for this conversation".
As words you didn't mean squeezed through your teeth, resting on your lips.
And I'll admit that I haven't been this scared of skeletons since I was just a kid.
Maybe, just maybe I will learn that I got what I deserved.
I admire the strength that it must take to look me in the face
and spill your guts, knowing that you're fake.
You call me a liar, you call me a mistake...
But we both know the truth.
You call me a liar, you call me a mistake.
Well maybe you got what you deserved.
Call me a liar, but you were just a mistake.

Where is your heart tonight?
Which bed does it hide under now?
I hope you get answers from your mirrors with overtones.
Track Name: Isn't It Obvious?
I can't remember the last time I looked someone in the eye.
Keeping myself in suspense.
Well I've long since sold my soul to a ghost of where I've been.
I've long since grown to know the consequences of this life I choose to live.
But isn't it obvious?
I understand your intent, and where you're going with all of this.
(where are you going with all of this?)
I understand you're afraid of letting go
and that everyone deserves a place to call their home.
But isn't it obvious that it secretly brings you relief
to hear all these terrible things about me?
So I said to myself
"When was the last time that we spoke?
There's a train wreck ahead, and at this rate you'll never avoid it".
Then it came just as clear as day:
I desire what will destroy me in the end.
But isn't it obvious that it secretly brings you relief
to hear all these terrible things about me?
