Track Name: Demons in the Hall
some days I wan to run as fast I can
something inside's always screaming
you'll end up here again

some days I want to cry out
all this water, poisoned with pain
some days I look around
how can we all stay the same?

In a world of circles and walls
spinning in this wheel 'till we fall
we look so silly
dodging demons in the hall

screams and shame burn my ears
never looking at ourselves
burning the years
we could fix this
we could make it alright

here I am screaming out loud for someone to stop this
and all you want is a blindfold
to make it alright

fear of darkness as you close your eyes and you pray
for the nightmares to fade
you fear your demons and they fear the light
tell me why do you shut out the day?
why do you shut out the day?
Track Name: So Vicious
So viciously defending
the lines I am wrapped in

So viciously defending
the box I am trapped in

So vicious, it is, so vicious

It's just that I am who I am
It's just that I'm sorry but not
It's just that it's so beautiful,
the pedestal you put me on

So vicious, it is, so vicious

It's just that I'm wrapped in the this skin
I don't even recognize
So desperately trying to blend in
desperately tangled in lies

So vicious, it is, so vicious

This isn't me
The script is clean
This isn't me, at all
This isn't me
This is your dream
I wake up from it all

It's just that I am who I am
It's just that I'm sorry but not
It's just that it's so beautiful,
the pedestal you put me on

So vicious, it is, so vicious
Track Name: Where we Started
You say you're sick
of watching me fade away
slowly watching my heart
turn to stone

I say I'm sick
of the silly games that we play
our reasons they fall
to the floor

Let's go back to where we started
where your skin was my blanket
and I was never cold

These cracks in my heart will you fix them?
It's always a small blow what for?
We like to hurt and suffer
to prove
who loves the other more

Why is this all on me?
I break down, I fall asleep
You cry tears for no one to see
All in
All in the name of love
Track Name: Brick by Brick
Crumbled paper on the floor
I can't take anymore
it's been 2 weeks of this

Crumbled dreams at my door
knocking loud, I can't be sure
I stare at blank faces in the mirror

And all that haunts me is

Brick by brick we built this pretty little place
brick by brick it burnt down, in pretty little flames
I'm running
Running from an avalanche of memories of you
Running from an avalanche of memories of you
Running from an avalanche of memories of...

A blank page is all I see
a blank page of you and me
kind of what we ended up being

A silent rage is all I hear
A deafening sound of you not here
it's noisy in this head of mine

And all that haunts me is...

Brick by brick we built this pretty little place
brick by brick it burnt down, in pretty little flames
I'm running
Running from an avalanche of memories of you
Running from an avalanche of memories of you
Running from an avalanche of memories of...

My eyes are heavy
my hands are sore
it's been so many hours
trying to write our story
my eyes are heavy
my hands are sore
and all we've got is crumbled paper on this floor.
Track Name: Shadows and Me
Drowning in these walls
all these shadows and me
tied in a box
a caged animal to see

Sitting in this room
3:30 in the morning
talking to the ceiling
but it's not talking to me

I get this feeling that I'm in a box
in a building in someone else's movie
I get this feeling that I'm being watched
the audience pitying me

I can hear their laughs
their tears falling like the rain
this would all make sense
if I could just walk away

When did I decide, to live my life this way?
It's been quite a fight
to throw it all away
Track Name: Melt into the Sea
Standing here for a week
the sun is slowly melting me
the waves they pull at my feet
I add salt to this sea

Ask me why I have to leave
say you love me
lie to me

your eyes they scream a different story
so take my hand, and set me free

Touch your cheek, sink my feet
your heart it beats, slow and steady
Take my hand, your eyes a map
this love a trap you'll never see
Set me free

Your arms wrapped tight around me
so confused, incomplete
I let the water surround me
I kiss your lips, then set you free

Your love it fixes and bounds me
your heart is broken, because of me
I let your screams surround me
and drown it out with this beat

I'll ask you again
you'll lie to me
slowly waking from this dream
Our hands are tied
slowly slipping

You watch me melt into the sea
Track Name: This is Love
So good at defending I became the voice locked inside
So good at mistaking real love and suicide

What we had was beautiful,
you said you'd never let it go
how did you see it?
how did you know?

When I broke it all I pulled you into my spinning wheel
broke open your heart, and let it spill

This is what we do
we save each other, we do
This is what we do
This is love
