Track Name: Love Me Like New
If I laugh half as much as I do,
If I was twice as cool,
If I was indifferent to you,
Would you love me like new?

If tomorrow I'm not so warm,
If tomorrow I do not answer my phone,
If tomorrow I act just like you,
Would you love me like new?

I had hope for this one,
Saved all my love for this one,
I was fine til this one came

If I built a great big wall,
If I say things to make you feel small,
If I don't give the world to you,
Would you love me like new?

I had hope for this one,
Saved all my love for this one,
I was fine til this one came

Things run out,
Like dollar bills and ammunition
And things wear off like my novelty

I had hope for this one,
Saved all my love for this one,
I was fine til this one came

Til you came, well I was fine, fine, fine

Things run out,
Like dollar bills and ammunition
And things wear off like my novelty

If I acted just like you,
Would you love me like new?
Track Name: Parentheses
I'm not a puzzle piece,
I'm a parenthesis,
I'm not meant to complete,
But you can find a use for me,
I know my place,
Don't rub it in my face,
I'm a pacifier,
You are quite the whiner, my friend

It's not my problem,
Where you go,
So prove it to me,
It's an awful thing to know,
You hold my freedom,
With all your might,
Yeah you're trying to hitch a ride

I'm not a puzzle piece,
I'm a parenthesis,
I'm not meant to complete,
But you can find a use for me,
I know my place,
Don't rub it in my face,
I'm a pacifier,
You are quite the whiner, my friend

And now I notice,
When you're gone,
So prove it to me,
I was right all along,
You are my sentence,
You are the crime,
I'm an escape from your mundane life

You left behind your fantasy,
To come to my reality

I'm not a puzzle piece,
I'm a parenthesis,
I'm not meant to complete,
But you can find a use for me,
I know my place,
Don't rub it in my face,
I'm a pacifier,
You are quite the whiner, my friend

Yeah I'm a pacifier,
You are such a liar, my friend
Track Name: More
A couple of years,
And a few bridges burned,
I was taught a lesson,
I didn't wanna learn

To watch out for the kind,
Always chasing imaginary lights,
The kind who never seem to just feel right

Tell me what do you do with a wasted diamond ring?
She knows she will never be the most important thing,
She'll let him go, to discover, he's leaving one dream for another,
He doesn't know just what he's looking for

Everybody's got a card up their sleeve,
And one foot out the door,
Some just have an anchor,
That won't let em sail from the shore,
And we all want more

Now what do you get,
With your expectations met?
You know you're gonna find,
Another conquest,
Would it be any better,
If I promised to love you forever,
If I die before I don't love you anymore?

Everybody's got a card up their sleeve,
And one foot out the door,
Some just have an anchor,
That won't let em sail from the shore,
And we all want more

They all got a card up their sleeve,
And one foot out the door,
Some just have an anger,
That won't let them leave the shore,
Oh but I was born for nothing more than love,
It's the only thing that makes me wish,
I never was, oh but I want more, yes,
I want more
Track Name: Pray
I don't want this density,
I don't want these thoughts,
What good do they do me?
I don't know where they came from, anyway

I just want some leniency,
Why am I so hard on me?
I don't know what it's all for, anyway

I don't want this scarcity,
Do I really miss anything?
I don't know where it's all gone, anyway

I want to be where there is only one thing to be,
I want to go where there is nowhere but here to go,
Where silence feels like music,
And my name cannot be called

I don't want this ecstasy,
I don't want this heart,
What good does it do me?
I don't know where you came from, anyway
I don't know where you came from, anyway

I want to be where there is only one thing to be,
I want to go where there is nowhere but here to go,
Where silence feels like music,
And my name cannot be called

I want to be where there is only one thing to be,
I want to go where there is only one place to go,
Where silence feels like music,
And my name cannot be called,
Silence feels like music,
And my name cannot be called,
Silence feels like music,
Where silence feels like music
Track Name: Kill the Hope
You saw a future in a flash,
Now that concern becomes a trap,
And what it does is justify,
The misery you live inside

The good, the bad that you perceive,
Obtaining things externally,
You were told and you believed,
You must sow before you reap

Kill the hope til there's nothing left,
You are nothing but the love that gives you breath,
Kill the hope, kill your scheme,
This is nothing but a dream

These limitations, black and white,
Keep you turning in your night,
You'll be lost, you'll be blind,
Until you turn on the light,
Turn on the light

Kill the hope til there's nothing left,
You are nothing but the love that gives you breath,
Kill the hope, kill your scheme,
This is nothing but a dream

It's your mountain, no one sees it but you,
But you,
It's your mountain, no one sees it,
No one sees it, but you

Kill the hope til there's nothing left,
You are nothing but the love that gives you breath,
Kill the hope, kill your scheme,
This is nothing but a dream

Kill the hope til there's nothing left,
You are nothing but the love that gives you breath,
The love that gives you breath,
The love that you gives you, gives you,
Is you

Follow your bliss to your demise,
Free yourself, it's all a lie
Track Name: The Moon
I am falsely identified, hypnotized and polarized
unsatisfied, yet pacified
now I look you in the eye

Project what you want on me
reflect what you need to see
refusing to be where you are
now woo me with your scar

My poetry is alchemy
and does not belong to me

Forgive my youth for trapping and freeing me
forgive the sun for feeding and blinding me
forgive the city and the rolling hills
forgive the majestic sea
forgive the moon for her gravity

I am ready for judgement day
go on and say what you've got to say
I already know the truth
I will not bow to you

I've spun around in circles for far too long
now my cage is open, you can't unhear a song
you can't unhear it

Forgive my youth for trapping and freeing me
forgive the sun for feeding and blinding me
forgive the city and the rolling hills
forgive the majestic sea
forgive the moon...

Can you forgive me for making the moon?
Can you forgive the world you see?
I've got a god-like longing with a human reach
Track Name: New You
I'd like to see you on a winning streak,
I'd like to see you get your way,
I'd like to hear you say that you deserve it,
I'd like to see you every day

I'd like to see you on a plane to Europe,
I'd like to see you in a cab,
I'd like to see you with your glasses on,
I've never seen you like that

Lighter, brighter, shiny and new,
a completely different version of you

I'd like to see you in your own place,
I'd like to see you flyin' high,
I love to watch you when you smile from the inside
I wanna see you every night

Lighter, brighter, shiny and new,
a completely different version of you
And though I love you baby just the way you are,
You know I have to love you from afar

I'd like to see you on a mountain,
I'd like to see you run for mayor,
and even if I crossed the country,
you know I'd see you everywhere

Lighter, brighter, shiny and new,
a completely different version of you
And though I love you baby just the way you are,
You know I have to love you from afar
Track Name: Ruins
You're trying to outrun mortality,
You've forgotten the angel that you are

You think your lover won't
You think your lover won't
You think your lover won't
Come to you

There are creatures deep in the sea,
Who if you told them would never believe,
Birds fly in a sky up above,
Living a live you can't conceive of

They're gonna find our ruins,
They're gonna settle in,
Go back where we started,
And do it all again

You're trying to outlast eternity,
You've forgotten the animal you are

You think desire won't
You think desire won't
You think desire won't
Come for you

You are an actor caught in a scene,
You'll never know that you've got a disease,
All your chaos led you astray,
You had to have it your way

They're gonna find our ruins,
They're gonna settle in,
Go back where we started,
And do it all again

They're gonna find our ruins,
Our prisons and our beds,
Oh the idiot robots,
WIll find a place to lay their heads

To lay their heads

We become the devils who made us

We are the devils, the devils who made us,
The devils who made us all
Track Name: Veils
I've been stranded for so long,
That I built my home in hell,
I've been trying to gather things,
To decorate my cell

I thought that you'd fill the void,
Although I withheld,
When I said you betrayed me,
I know that I betrayed myself

As must as I love you,
I don't know what love is,
You're so much more than I'll ever see
As much as you hurt me,
I don't know what hurt is,
It's so much deeper than I care to see

I speak til I'm aware,
These words are built to fail,
These symbols will not lift the veil

I'm ready and waiting,
My time only seems to crawl,
Your eyes and ears and hands,
They still won't take my call

When will love be pure,
and not a means to learn?
Somehow in forgetting you,
My memory returns

As must as I love you,
I don't know what love is,
You're so much more than I'll ever see
As much as you hurt me,
I don't know what hurt is,
It's so much deeper than I care to see

I speak til I'm aware,
These words are built to fail,
These symbols will not lift the veil

As much as you love me,
I don't know what love is
You're so much more than I'll ever see
As much as I hurt you,
I don't know what hurt is,
It's so much deeper than I care to see

I speak til I'm aware,
These words are built to fail,
this time I swear I'll lift the veil

It'll be like nothing ever happened
Track Name: Special Love
There's a first time for everything,
Nothing new under the sun,
Looks like I finally got me,
A special love

An instant confidant in a room,
Full of constant strangers,
I pour my heart out,
It doesn't seem dangerous

If being whole is alone,
I'll be your better half

I feel so included in our exclusion of,
Others from our special love,
Our special love

It's evolutionary every time it's been done,
What's gonna show you more,
Than a special love?

A tiny little box to show,
Just what we're made of,
It's not that I'm brave,
It's I'm not scared enough

I feel so included in our exclusion of,
Others from our special love,
Our special love,
Our special love

I can speak too soon,
As long as I believe it,
Love can be blind as long as I,
Never ever see it

I feel so included in our exclusion of,
Others from our special love,
I feel so included in our exclusion of,
Others from our special love,
Our special love

I feel so included in our exclusion of,
Others from our special love,
Our special love,
Our special love
