Track Name: Lonely Apartment
As you sat in the back of the smokers corral,
your face lit up by your phone,
you asked me if I was gonna play that night,
I said yeah, but I'd rather be at home,
I'd rather be at home.

You know, I shine onto you like the sun to the world,
and I live in your forest-like eyes,
you can ask me the questions a thousand ways (times),
the answer will the be same every time.
And I know that my family may never agree,
but if you put your hand out what you're feeling is me.
And I know that there's no where that I'd rather be,
than with you by my side with the whole world to see,
the whole world to see.

Please don't let me fall down,
no.
Track Name: Hold Me Together
When the sun rose again,
I was mildly surprised,
by the tears that had fallen from my unopened eyes,
I guess things could be worse.

Then I rose for the day,
but I couldn't pay,
my debt to society for being this way,
I guess I'll always be in the caution zone.

You know me better than I know myself,
I'm the book and you're the shelf,
you hold me together,
you hold me together,
and now I'm just like the wandering ghost,
I have no where to go,
There's a whole world that I'd rather not know.

I can't believe how beautiful you look tonight,
I can't believe the way you move your hair,
I can't believe that girl you've got beside you,
I can't believe you wouldn't want me there.

You know me better than I know myself,
I'm the book and you're the shelf,
you hold me together,
you hold me together,
and now I'm just like the wandering ghost,
I have no where to go,
There's a whole world that I'd rather not know.
Track Name: Song About Youth
Someday when I am growing old,
and my whole disposition's cold,
I'll remember the bitter days,
and hope to see them in different ways.
And as I'm lying there in bed,
with all these thoughts going through my head,
will I sit in disbelief,
or find a moment of relief?

Is this the beginning
or maybe just the ending
of everything we want?
A simple little answer,
and everlasting answer,
that will forever haunt me?
Do I need the answers,
do I seek the answers,
to a world that I don't know?
Or will I let my knowledge grow?

Sour words escape from me,
float down the stream into the sea,
the sea is black from love it did lack,
and now I'm all alone.
And as I sit under the shade,
and wait for all of this to fade,
how I'll hope that it will crack,
so I don't ever have to look back.


Is this the beginning
or maybe just the ending
of everything we want?
A simple little answer,
and everlasting answer,
that will forever haunt me?
Do I need the answers,
do I seek the answers,
to a world that I don't know?
Or will I let my knowledge grow?

Oh lordy, do I play this game?
Or do I dismiss it in shame?
I'm left here baffled and confused;
left here alone and refused.


Is this the beginning
or maybe just the ending
of everything we want?
A simple little answer,
and everlasting answer,
that will forever haunt me?
Do I need the answers,
do I seek the answers,
to a world that I don't know?
Or will I let my knowledge grow?
Track Name: I'm Going Down
I'm going down,
I see the light,
it shines so bright,
I'm only seconds away.

What can I do,
I'm lost and I have no where to turn to.
Track Name: Everything Is Fine
Everything is fine.
Track Name: Statuses (Live)
I know just who you are,
I see your smile from a far,
Statuses,
Statuses okay.
I know just how you have been,
cause on the internet we're still friends,
Statuses,
Statuses okay.

But I am fading away,
just some sorry thought from a previous day,
And the preacher said don't be afraid,
(yeah, well then I)
I just looked at him and said,
I'm not saved.

Like the creature in the back,
I've got lots of love that never lacked,
Statuses,
Statuses okay.
And I know just what I wanna do,
And I know I want it all with you,
Statuses,
Statuses okay.

But I am fading away,
just some sorry thought from a previous day,
And the preacher said don't be afraid,
(yeah, well then I)
I just looked at him and said,
I'm not saved.

AHH!

But I am fading away,
just some sorry thought from a previous day,
And the preacher said don't be afraid,
(yeah, well then I)
I just looked at him and said,
I'm not saved.
Track Name: Nothing Matters
You and I,
we disagree,
it seems we were never meant to be,
happy like everyone,
swimming inside of our heads.

Now my love,
I must go,
but there is one thing I must know,
before I leave this place,
read my lips and see my face,
I don't want to live this way.

I don't know what to believe,
so I don't know why you believe in me,
I am shattered glass,
fragments of some forgotten past,
that's so fucked.

But nothing really matters,
(but nothing matters anymore)
this Spring will be the same.
(nothing really matters)
Where some think that I've lost it,
(nothing matters anymore)
Others think that I'm insane.

You and I, yeah,
we got along,
but then it turned out I was wrong,
and now I live away,
curse the night and shame the day.

Now I shout, yeah,
I shout at the trees,
as though everything's mocking me,
as I shy from you,
This is what I'm forced to do,
This is what you put me through.

I don't know what to believe,
so I don't know why you believe in me,
I am shattered glass,
fragments of some forgotten past,
that's so fucked.

But nothing really matters,
(but nothing matters anymore)
this Summertime will come.
(nothing really matters)
And those who haven't forgotten,
(nothing matters anymore)
have lost a sense of where they're from.
Track Name: What Will I Do Today?
Rooftops fade to darkest night,
pulsations create what is life,
infinity passed what we see,
(stop to think it's baffling).

I've been insane before,
I don't let that bother me no more,
I don't let it do a thing.

What are the rules
I really wanna play,
What will I do today?
What will I do today?

What will I do
when my skies are turning grey?
What will I do today?
What will I do today?

I saw the ocean sweep across your lawn,
I thought it strange to see in Michigan,
My eye's widen in bewilderment,
I'm in awe.

Then we found adventure on the screen,
we watched until we could no longer think,
the lamp across the room lit my whole world.

What are the rules
I really wanna play,
What will I do today?
What will I do today?

What will I do
when my skies are turning grey?
What will I do today?
What will I do today?

Who knew this would be so grand?
Sensations as you hold my hand,
your eye's like broken ice,
I fall deep inside.

I feel as moments pass us by,
the answers to all of my questions
why my life is such a book,
everything I ask is answered.

What are the rules
I really wanna play,
What will I do today?
What will I do today?

What will I do
when my skies are turning grey?
What will I do today?
What will I do today?
Track Name: You're Like A Snowless Winter
You better give me a break,
I can't keep living like this,
I think I'm lying to myself,
You say that we are meant to be,
That I should give it some time to really see,
But the fires, the fires are too damn hot,
And the burning desire between us is not,
And I can not eat, I can not sleep, I'm losing track of what I keep,
You aren't my Shepard and I'm not a sheep.

I swear you're like a snowless winter
You make sense somewhere, just not here
Oh you're like a flameless lighter
Trying to convince that you're still shining brighter

Just the other day Dee and I were walking and I saw you in the arms of another girl,
I felt like the English outlander, stuck in Scotland and forced to simply observe,
I noticed that you noticed me, stood up quick so that I wouldn't see,
But alas, my dear, the deed is done, and now I'll live in this misery,
If you didn't want to stay you weren't bound,
But if that's what you want now, know I want you around.

I swear you're like a snowless winter,
You make sense somewhere, just not here,
Oh you're like a flameless lighter,
Trying to convince that you are still shining brighter.

I may be crazy, lazy, I don’t even know.
But I could still do a little better.

I swear you're like a snowless winter,
You make sense somewhere, just not here,
Oh you're like a flameless lighter,
Trying to convince that you are still shining brighter.
Track Name: Pillow Talk
...and as I sing softly into your pillow,
and whisper things that only you and I know,
will you turn around and smile at me,
before you fall asleep?
Track Name: Albatross
Well if you find the albatross,
that's crossed over the sea,
well I hope soon our paths will cross,
and you'll remember me.

I will cry because I can,
I will miss holding your hand,
I will sit there all alone,
wishing I'd died long ago,
In the nights when I am cold,
how I'll miss the arms that
held onto my sanity.

Well I can't fix welded ice or broken hearts,
that's what the man did just say,
it seemed to stop raining then,
as the stranger walked the other way,

I will cry because I can,
I will miss holding your hand,
I will sit there all alone,
wishing I'd died long ago,
In the nights when I am cold,
how I'll miss the arms that
held onto my sanity.

It's obvious I am not doing so well,
I agree with you all I should go straight to hell,
but in these nights as I realize all I am,
is one tiny bead in a whole world of sand,

I will cry because I can,
I will miss holding your hand,
I will sit there all alone,
wishing I'd died long ago,
In the nights when I am cold,
how I'll miss the arms that
held onto my sanity.

Even if I were to meet someone new,
and he treated me better than ever by you,
would it keep me from falling upon the cold ground,
I feel like I'm dying cause you're not around.

(awkward counting)

I will cry because I can,
I will miss holding your hand,
I will sit there all alone,
wishing I'd died long ago,
In the nights when I am cold,
how I'll miss the arms that
held onto my sanity.

If you find the albatross,
that's crossed over the sea,
I pray soon our paths will cross,
and you've not forgotten me.
