Track Name: For Whatever We Were
Bug bites and fireflies
On my skin
A summer steeped in heartache
And adolescent sin
You were the best of me
And I was the worst
I turned from a blessing
Into a curse

I did my best to make things better for you
But leaving my love was the most that I could do
Well I'm sorry
So sorry

When a sumer breeze brushes your cheek
Will you think of me?
The man with doubt in hand
That he could be who he needed to be
Someone who could stand stone strong and know
What he wanted to do
Cause love was never a game to be
Practiced on you

I did my best to make things better for you
But leaving my love was the most that I could do
Well I'm sorry
So sorry
Track Name: Suze, It's a Strange World
Baby, Suze, whats going on?
Anything in correlation to the terms we've stumbled upon
Whatever they may be, if they are true I can't tell
For my pessimism well darling, I've sent it all to hell
But I aint side stepping, top skipping, bottom prancing
Inside moving, outside swooning or ballroom dancing
Cause babe I've cut through all the discord as of late
Now I've got some understandings to underestimate

For all the roads we drove
None have seemed to lead you back home
So I'll just rest with the remnants of your silhouette
Feeling so blue and alone

But I'm not alone
I'm not alone
But I feel so alone without you

Baby, Suze, where have you gone?
Cause I'm moving up, I'm moving down, I'm moving along
Yeah these side walks and back streets, they don't feel the same
Now that I'm walking in time, on a line, playing the game
We speak of miss-throws and no goes, nice new clothes
Information restricted, to which nobody knows
Cause clear cut fog is all it is as of now
Let it be, let it be, let it be somehow
Track Name: Head West
Crack my spine and tie up your strings
Bruise my blood and pack up your things
Head west for the hills
Just sleep in your car
Head west for the hills
Till you know who you are

I promise I won't follow you
When you're driving home
Your keys don't fit my doors
Cause you don't live here no more

Strip my skin and clothe me in doubt
Pull me inside, then throw me out
Every touch that you leave
There's a touch I will take
For every touch that you leave
There's a smile I will fake

I promise I won't follow you
When you're driving home
Your keys don't fit my doors
Cause you don't live here no more
Track Name: Dotted Lines (16)
We were young
Too young to be
Stripped of our
Coats and clothes
But all those threads we shed that night
Gave flesh to feel
In breathing in your breathes
I lost my parts to heal

We cupped our mouths to snuff the sound
Since we were only sixteen
We closed our eyes to keep the count
Who knew that we were falling out

I was your dotted line
You signed it away
Fuck the feel, we'll count the steal
Cause you know and I know
It's done

Night gave way
To a settling son
We were lost
And underaged
But through the time that passed
You grew a bodied shame
And through your belly
We gave sin our father's names

You tore your tracks to start again
Since we were only sixteen
It was just as simple then
As giving up had ever been

I was your dotted line
You signed it away
Fuck the feel, we'll count the steal
Cause you know and I know
It's done
Track Name: First Light
Strung on a line
To let it heal if you
Give it some time
You are going to find
You're teenage tears, they are going to dry

Go back to sleep
And try to dream
Of when you'd keep
Your hands to yourself
Play real polite, innocent and so shy

The mistakes you made
Yesterday are going to fade
With the morning's cue
At first light, they'll all undo
Track Name: Mt. Calvary
I stood at the edge of your bed
As sad saints hung their heavy heads
Whispering out of sync to you and the dead
Sewing up your final threads

My love, I lay down
My love, I let you go
My love, I let you drown
My love, why'd you go?

How strange it was to see you go
On a one way trip, your ticket on your toe
That train won't stop until it drops you under stone
Where your body will stow

My love, I lay down (On the mountain)
My love, I let you go (To the garden)
My love, I let you drown (With the blue blood)
My love, why'd you go?

I couldn't say a word to you
The day they bared you to the pews
For seeds just filled your shoes
Cause flesh your soul will not use

My love, I lay down (On the mountain)
My love, I let you go (To the garden)
My love, I let you drown (With the blue blood)
My love, why'd you go?
Track Name: A Dream of Better Days
Gone are times when we were sure
That this is all there woud ever be
With naive heart and hope so pure
As halcyon summer breeze
Well that wind still hums so loud
And proud as it did
When we were just kids in our teens
Smoking cigarettes, discussing our dreams
We thought tomorrow would never be today

I miss you and the rest of you my friends
I miss you and the rest of you my friends
My friends, my friends, my friends

Theres a song inside our heads
Ringing of differences between
All the things that were said
And al those things we didn't mean
And all the time we took for granted
What was splitting at the seems
It's always stuck on cycle/repeat
So we just acquiesce, go home and make our beds
For tomorrow and dream of better days

I miss you and the rest of you my friends
I miss you and the rest of you my friends
My friends, my friends, my friends

I miss you and the rest of you my friends
I miss you and the rest of you my friends
My friends, my friends, my friends
Track Name: Grey Graves
You are the ghost
Of everything you used to be
A mind made victim
I killed off in my dreams
Your blood is on my fingertips,
Your blood is on my hands
Oh, I hope some day you understand

You are the ghost
Thats whispering from down the hall
It keeps me up at night
My God, I hear your calls
Your voice just beats my drums
Your voice is in my head
Oh, it sounds just like the living dead

You know I am the one who buried
You
Were the body I laid down
In my memory

You are the ghost
That took shape of who I used to know
You call it heartless
But I'll just call it apropos
To strip you of your sheets
Exposing your chains
Oh, now won't you let me by with ease

You know I am the one who buried
You
Were the body I laid down
In my memory

Dig it up, dig it up right now
Make a home in the cemetery
I hope you're happy
In these grey graves
Track Name: For What Will Never Be
This is the sound of
Setting in
The settling of every sin
I pawned off on misfires
From defective cells held within
My pallid skin

The spiders made their homes
In our battered broken bones
We left them long ago
Where we'd bleed out in our sleep

So, contain the loss
And toss the odds
And ends into the fire
We'll call it all
A false fall
For ideas of what will never be
What will never be

This is the letting
Of bloody dust
The lifting of misplaced mistrust
Time was the catalyst
And my conduit to adjust
My selfish disgust

The self I knew grew old
And settled with the cold
It set in long ago
When I laid my body in the deep

So, contain the loss
And toss the odds
And ends into the fire
We'll call it all
A false fall
For ideas of what will never be
What will never be

Well, everything was wrong
Too broke apart to be
Well, everything went wrong
Cause I was gone at sea

But I'm not sorry
No, I'm not sorry
Anymore
