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?

So Vicious 03:55
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

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

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.

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

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

This is Love 03:52
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
