Intro 01:02
Fisherman 02:50
I am the wreckage at the bottom of the sea I go wherever the current takes me It's hard to make up my mind When living on borrowed time I cast my line to the shore I've heard before that all's fair in love and war But which side are we on? And I've given in to tempters and sin So what, I'm human Are you afraid of the darkness in the deep? I don't know how many times You watched me cross the line Playing in shallow waters And if I had one more chance I'd do it all again Drowning over and over in my head Forgive and forget, they said But I'll get my revenge You can bet on it Just give me a sign And I'll make sure you'll find the beauty In the view from the depths beneath
Happier 03:04
You can call me crazy all you want I'll still be laughing when I'm gone And when you're stuck at the bottom of a well When you're buried in the hole you dug yourself I'll be happier I've been given a gift to wade through the mud With such motions so swift (can you handle it?) And a bite that could draw blood
Ghastly 03:18
Wouldn't you love to say you told me so? To watch me crash and burn all on my own The beauty in the failure is how fast we fall And how much we try if we try at all My demons follow me with faces so ghastly Dragging heavy pleas, the sight is sickening The beauty in the failure is how fast we fall And how much we try when we try so hard Try so hard, we try so hard
I tried to do it on my own I travelled far, but I should've known I do this all the time, drinking in the high Let it overtake every part of me Falling in slow motion I tried to do it on my own But nothing here is good as gold I let things pass me by and bury me alive Let my lungs fill up, let my heart give out Feeling this...subconscious Until I reach the stars again Until I find a home again I'll leave myself to my sadness God forgive me if I don't believe
Clean Hands 02:29
I heard you swear under your breath I watched you dive into the deep end I was just a passerby I thought I should know why But I knew nothing at all I saw you hang your head And watched you close your eyes With my hand on your chest You thought you should know why But you knew nothing at all
Bittersweet 03:34
Bittersweet As the time begins to close on these memories The past few years have meant something to me Once again we are floating in space And life has led us to different ways What else do you expect? We have nothing left It isn't easy saying goodbye But we did have such fun times Through the madness of the highs And the trenches of the lows we leave behind Just around the bend Are signs pointing to the end We should have seen it coming Hard and fast like lightning Heat lightning
Left Turn 03:40
I could've told you so many things So many dreams are dying with me You were one of those things that I couldn’t reach No matter how far my hands were from me We only sway with influence We've crawled our way through the darkest hole Being swayed by the headlines And I can't read more into your words When all you say are lies I've fallen in and can't get out But I'm desperate I'm hanging on, holding on to my faith You can’t make me sway
The sky is falling down The stars have disappeared Screaming runs through the air They'd like to say we were prepared To watch the world cave in We have reached an impasse And there's no going back We have done this to ourselves This is the end of the world Just let it all cave in It's the apocalypse We have been waiting for this moment The end is drawing nigh We have been wasting all this time Waiting for the world to die
