Track Name: The Holy Ghost
Verse 1:

And like an afterthought I fall
I fall behind
With my back against another wall
I look inside and realize
I’m not a perfect soul
I’ve got a broken mind
So says the writing on the wall

Chorus:

And as the light begins to leave
We’re dreaming
I hide to find my clarity
Believe me
Been deeper than the ocean
Held hands with the holy ghost and
I’ll die to find what I believe
‘Cause I believe in me

Verse 2:

I left a trail full of pieces of me
‘Cause my mind tends to fail
And my heart tends to lead
So pick up the pieces
I swear that I’ll be
A body, a vessel, a soul or the weak

Chorus

Bridge:

A map of my mind isn’t all that you need
A soul needs a body like eyes need to read
So please pay attention I need you to see
A body, a body, I’m more than a body

Chorus
Track Name: All You Need
I need a fucked up table for one
And I’m accustomed only because
I’ve been a poisonous centerpiece
A venomouse energy
In need of a remedy
Gotta stop
Hold on
Let’s talk
You’re wrong
But now you knew that all along

Chorus:

Sing with me
I only ever wanted you to see
It’s I’m getting better
But I’m on my knees
To let you know
That all you need
Is a reason to believe
That I’ll recover from a swift defeat
And we will make it through this

Verse 2:

She’s had enough and she’s ready to run
It’s hard to bluff when you’re holding the gun
I can’t be scared of you darling
You’re so alarming it’s charming
But you started the carving
You gotta stop
Hold on
Don’t talk
I’m wrong
But now you knew that all along

Chorus

Bridge:

It’s not enough but I promise I’m done
You’re not on you’re own
No you’re not on you’re own
It’s getting tough but I promise I’m done
Promise I’m done
You’re not on your own
No you’re not on your own

Chorus
Track Name: Angel
Verse 1:

Would you kindly kill the voices in my head
That keep me seeing red
I’m forgetting every word you’ve said
And would you kindly kill the smoke and crack the mirrors
That keep me stranded here
In a fragiile state of hope and fear

Chorus:

You say you’re an angel
But I don’t believe you
As you sing the siren song
I can't seem to escape from
You said you would save me
And gave me something to believe
Now it’s changing everything I do
Defined the way that I see you

Verse 2:

You break into my bones
When you know that I’m alone
You burn under my skin
When you cut me from within

Chorus

Bridge:

If I could do it all again
I’d make the better choice instead
Believe me I’m still here
In a state of hope and fear

Final Chorus:

You say you’re an angel
But I don’t believe you
As you scream the siren song
I cant seem to escape from
You said you would save me
And gave me something to believe
Now it’s changing everything
Define the way that I see you
Track Name: What's Left Of Me
Intro:

If truth be told this house is not a home
There’s a part of me that knows you’re letting go

Verse 1:

And now I take these drugs to help me fall asleep
‘Cause the better parts of us live in my dreams
Shut that door, don’t shut that door on me
I’m punctured lung, I’m a flat-lined heart, I’m weak

Pre-Chorus 1:

Oh doctor, doctor (doctor, doctor)
Doctor, doctor say it softer
Doctor, doctor (doctor, doctor)
My pretty paper coffin offer

Chorus:

I’m holding on to everything
It won’t be long before I forget
Take it all and I’ll pick up what’s left
Yeah I’ll pick up what’s left of me

Verse 2:

She’s prettiest when broken, when broken to the bone
But I hope to God she’s choking, just on the choice to be alone
I was a fucked up lover
‘Cause I went undercover
When I needed to discover
If my heart could love another
It won’t
It just broke

Pre- Chorus 2:

Yeah doctor, doctor
Oh doctor, doctor

Chorus

Bridge:

And if truth be told (doctor, doctor)
If truth be told (doctor, doctor)
And if truth be told (doctor, doctor)
If truth be told this house is not a home

Final Chorus:

I’m holding on to everything
Take it all and I’ll pick up what’s left
Yeah I’ll pick up what’s left of me
Track Name: Dear Lovely
Verse 1:

Dear lovely, I’m afraid that I’ve found an enemy
Pray for me to anyone or anything
Seam by seam it appears that I’ve been unraveling
Whoa, what a tragedy

Pre-Chorus 1:

And if I’m wrong I swear I’ll make amends to you
Before I’m gone inside, for what is left is leaving soon
Because I wasn’t built for love
It’s a truth my heart’s forgetting
If nothing means so much
Go

Chorus:

‘Cause I wasn’t built for love. It’s a truth my heart’s forgetting
If nothing means so much, you were something more
And before I ever knew myself or my transcending
I knew that I had you
The beginning of…

Verse 2:

And as sweet as sorry looks upon your lips you hid it well
I must admit that puzzle piece is the one we haven’t found

Pre-Chorus 2:

And if I’m wrong I swear I’ll make amends to you
Before I’m gone inside because it’s all that I have
Oh my God

Chorus

Bridge:

I had you

Chorus

Outro:

The ending, the ending
I knew that I had you
Track Name: Mile High Road (Truth Or Dare)
Verse 1:

Stay close, promise me
It’s getting cold and the seasons are changing
Tall tales of taller things
Cast spells in the shadows of these cherry trees
I know a hiding place
Rain, rain will come again another day, another day
Say grace and follow me
To see a place where the world won’t hear a thing

Chorus:

Drive slow it’s a scary road
Look down at the city far below
Lost souls from haunted homes
Come back to purify their bones
Black lungs and chemicals
Gave life to all our favorite songs
Far enough to feel alone
The oak tree on mile high road

Verse 2:

Come now brethren
And see how a sinner loves his sins
We’ll drown in medicine
And keep warm when the heavy dreams begin again
Scarecrows in the cherry groves
They sing songs of the winter winds and buried bones
Like stone to sediment
I’m coming home to the great unknown
A carnival of sentiment

Chorus

Verse 3:

Let’s play truth or dare
And we’ll paint a brand new face
To hide behind that pretty hair
I can’t wait to get you here
We’ll celebrate with old champagne
And stories of our greatest fears

Chorus
Track Name: Bridges
Verse 1:

The devil on my shoulder whispers in my ear
I need to disconnect and move away from here
I’m wearing thin and giving in on bended knee
The pressure’s at a breaking point and so are we

Pre-Chorus:

Building bridges to your mind
Gotta find my way inside
It’s the only way I can get through

Chorus:

So cut the better part of me out
So I can understand your soul
You cut the better part of me down
‘Cause it’s only way, yes it’s the only way

Verse 2:

I read between the lines
Before we redesign
The paths that intertwine
To a place I’d never find
Bridges to your mind
Gotta find my way inside
Its only the only way through
To you

Chorus

Bridge:

So cut the better of me out
You let the better part of me down
The better part of me
The side you’ll never see

Final Chorus:

So break the better part of me out
And strip the devil from my soul
I’ll let the bitter part of you drown
‘Cause it’s the only way
It’s the only way I know
Track Name: Eye Of The Storm
Verse 1:

Watching and waiting to harvest these cravings alone
From dawn to the shadows these secrets are all that you know
Just wait for the tidal wave, you’re in the eye of the storm
I’ll bet you’re the kind to say Heaven makes Hell sound like home
You’re aching for more but you’re caving inside
You’re off waging wars but you’re losing the fight

Chorus:

Running away from the things you can’t face
Oh you’re so confusing
Shelter your skin while you deny your sins
You can’t handle losing me, losing me

Verse 2:

You build them so tall but I’ll break down these walls once again
I’m no Machiavelli but this is a means to an end
There’s grace in the fall if you pray for that end to begin
Please say your final piece, I’ve got a war to go win

Chorus

Post-Chorus:

Now we’re caught in the eye of the storm
And I wish that I could have done more
We were sinking oh so long before
You were losing me

Bridge:

Running away (Now you’re losing me, losing)

Chorus

Post-Chorus
Track Name: Secrets
Intro:

I’ve seen the wreckage send a second chance
I’ll die before I lose this war again

Verse 1:

Let’s dig deeper, beyond our bones
Find a keeper for the secrets that we’ve never told
Like the ones that fall by the wayside
Each time you lie in the mirror
So many more that I keep inside
You are the one that keeps me here

Verse 2:

Hide these pieces
Or fill these holes?
Bound by weakness
‘Cause the shadows of your heart control
All the love that you can’t remember
But it’s all that keeps you here
Go on ahead and find your forever
Until the end I’ll be right here

Chorus:

I’ve seen the wreckage send a second chance
‘Cause I’ll die before I lose this war again
Before we get too deep to find
The reasons why we hide behind
Who we are or what we have inside
You’re perfect in my eyes

Bridge:

You need to leave, ‘cause I need to find the reason
You need to leave, ‘cause I need to find the reason
You need to leave, ‘cause I need to find
I need to find, I need to find, I need to find, I need to find
You need to leave, ‘cause I need to find
The reason why you’re haunting my dreams that keep this lonely ghost alive

Chorus
Track Name: Painting Parallels
Verse 1:

I’m speaking now to the one who holds my captivation
I’ll paint these parallels until the silhouette sun sets across the nation
We got high above our small hometown without a stitch of clothing
When our eyes made love it froze the moment at a moments notice
If I had my way

Verse 2:

We were coming down and as the city slept
We let the patterns paint themselves
Keep your secrets sound in a whiskey bottle a mile north of town
If I had my way I never would’ve said a thing

Chorus:

Run now, before you hurt yourself
Somehow I know this won’t end well
Like running with a pair of scissors
I know I shouldn’t, but I want to kiss her
So I speak now or forever hold my piece
This girl could drown or rescue me
Like sleeping on a bed of razors,
I know I shouldn’t but I have to taste her

Verse 3:

Here’s to you and yours
From the shattered screens to the broken down doors
A finite grandeur on a lonely coast where the pieces drift ashore
Surely you saw the warnings and surely you heed the warnings

Chorus

Post-Chorus:

But you should know, ’cause I know you’ve got to go
I know you’ve got to, I know you’ve got to go
But he doesn’t want you and you don’t want to
But I know you’ve got to, I know you’ve got to go

Outro:

In this moment of clarity
Let’s share what we dare not speak
Deep in these catacombs
Just below our clavicles
Tucked behind some flesh and bone
