Track Name: I've Made Amends
[intro]
if i push this, i will survive
if i play this, until i get it right

[verse 1]
i've sunk to this mess that i've been in
i'm sick of waiting here in line
waiting for you to come
around to the way that i see this
you have know its not a phase
that i'll get through tonight

[intro]
or at least until somebody pulls me away
if i push this, i will survive
if i play this, until i get it right
just give me one more chance to say that

[chorus]
I've seen it all before, I've heard all these same lines
But I keep a flicker of hope still in my eyes
I've made amends with all the records that I've left
To sit and rot and fade away
While I play this thing trying up hold on

[intro/breakdown]
or at least until somebody TRIES to pull me away
if i push this, i will survive
if i play this, until i get it right
just give me one more chance to say that

[chorus]
I've seen it all before, I've heard all these same lines
But I keep a flicker of hope still in my eyes
I've made amends with all the records that I've left
To sit and rot and fade away
While I play this thing trying up hold on

[outro]
to a sound that i call home
filled with empty bars and broken bottles
where there’s a ringing in my ears
that’s been there for quite some time
and i never want to get it out
Track Name: Having To Tell You
[verse 1]
(i'd) been pushing away the things that i don't want to hear
(i'd) been pushing away this all to get me out of here
the news strikes and leaves this dead air all around
wakes me from this state, complacency is...

[chorus 1]
gone are the days that we knew once before
we'll never make sense of this
always a scar in your
heart that is shattered and bled on the floor
having to tell you has killed what we had to live for

[verse 2]
(now we're) learning to live without the things that made us whole
(now we're) learning to live without our eyes focused at all
we try and take this day to day, i see the wear
but you've broken more than you'll ever know

[bridge]
it seems so long ago,
the last thing that he said to me was...
i'm tired of all the tests
i'm tired of all these endless needles
i'm sick of all the stress
i'm sick of all these faceless people
telling me that i've got so damn much more left to live for
if they could live minute in my head just to see what it's like
because...

[chorus 2]
gone are the days that we knew once before
we'll never make sense of this
always a scar in your
heart that is shattered and bled on the floor
having to tell you has killed what we had to live for

[outro]
we take this all day to day
but you've broken more than you know
Track Name: The Thankless Few
[verse 1]
i said i'm alright
i said i'm ok
why can't they see the same things that i see
i've been giving my life to thankless few
to get the fuck our of here and sing these to
a room full of non-believers
but i know somehow this all feels right


[prechorus 1]
cause i dont
sing these songs about you
and i don't
hear the noise around you
cause i don't
wanna be a part of this scene


[verse 2]
lets think this one through
lets think this one out
i don't want to be the one to tell you
i've giving my life to thankless few
to get the fuck our of here and sing these to
a room full of non-believers
but i know somehow this all feels right


[prechorus 2]
cause i don’t
sing these songs about you
and i don't
hear the noise around you
cause i don't
wanna be a part of this


[chorus 1]
cause i'll be here playing for no one
i like it this way, this is where i'm from
and if i play with no hope for tomorrow
i pray that these rusted strings won't show
cause i won't be giving
this from my life
much longer i know
and they don't seem to see the same things that i see

[bridge]
and i said that i don't want to go
and i've giving my life to thankless few
to get the fuck our of here and sing these to
a room full of non-believers
but i know somehow this all feels right


[prechorus 3]
cause i don’t
sing these songs about you
and i don't
hear the noise around you
cause i don't
wanna be a part of this


[chorus 2]
cause i'll be here playing for no one
i like it this way, this is where i'm from
and if i play with no hope for tomorrow
i pray that these rusted strings won't show
cause i won't be giving
this from my life
much longer i know

[outro]
cause they don't seem to see the same things that i see
Track Name: Dilated Eyes
[Verse 1]
How many times have we laid still in this black room
Looking through our dilated eyes to break through
How many times have we
Pulled apart the seams
To this ugly mess

[Chorus 1]
And you've been pushing out reality
Cause I don't think you ever want to know
Why do you push me so hard
When all I ever wanted was to help

[Verse2]
But we'll go our own way for years at a time
Are you selling yourself on the street for a dime tonight
i'll put this record on repeat in my ear
As I walk down the street to realize
what you have...

[Bridge]
(become to me)
don't you see I've had enough of this shit
(stop asking)
I have my back up (against a wall)
And there’s no turning back from this
its been one hell of a ride
but we all know how this ends

[Chorus 2]
And you've been pushing out reality
Cause I don't think you ever want to know
Why do you push me so hard

[Outro]
When all I ever wanted was to help
help you out
when all i ever wanted was to help
help you out
i've spent too much already on this
and i don't think i'll ever get you out
Track Name: In Pieces
[verse 1a]
There's not a single thing I would content
That I didn't want to see you with right up until the end
cause I don't want to believe, that we all live to leave and carry on

[verse 1b]
Now There's little left for us to hold on to.
There's little left that I would wanna listen to.
I thought we left this long ago

[chorus 1]
We knew from the start that this would take us 2 decades
They push and they pull but we still won't break away
I will never lose my grip I know

[Verse 2a]
Look at these walls that I fortified for you
I can break it down and start again, come up with something new
But I know it won't go away
We've come too far to lose

[verse 2b]
Now There's little left for us to hold on to
There's little left that I would wanna listen to
I thought we left this long ago

[bridge]
And I won't be the one to shoot you down
I've come to compete and show how strong that we've become
To show that we...

[chorus 2]
Knew from the start that this would take us 2 decades
They push and they pull but we still won't break away

But we knew from the start, this would end up in pieces
with our hopes on the floor looking shattered and wasted

As we knew from the start that this would take us 2 decades
I will never lose my grip I know
