Track Name: The Brothers Cosmos
I think it's kind of funny how we all want what we can't have, and
It's impossible to shake it off when someone hurts your pride like that
And I think it's kind of funny how it's not about knowing when to quit
It's about knowing when to try, as long as the people deserve it

Cause the morning smells like fire has
Burned down the whole town, and everyone's
Moving on, moving on
But what comes after? Repeated, and backwards
The words coming through the megaphone
I can't go on, I can't go on

Wait a minute, don't shut me out
You're all I have, I'm older now
And my skin doesn't fit me like it used to
After the hell they put me through
And I haven't learned a goddamn thing
I'm busy playing make-believe
Pray to God that someone hears me
I've been lost at sea

Cause the morning smells like fire has
Burned down the whole town, and everyone's
Moving on, moving on
But what comes after? Repeated, and backwards
The words coming through the megaphone
I can't go on, I can't go on
Track Name: Let It Out
As I watch you sleep, there's a fire creeping over me
I want to be something better
And I'll talk to you again, I'm painting pictures with my skin
And I hope for you, you start feeling better
You start feeling better

And I pray for you, that you learn to use your ears
Cause I've bled for you for what feels a hundred years
And I'll talk to you again, only asking for a friend
And I hope for you, you start feeling better
That you start doing better

So tell me what you thought about
Back when you were young
And so full of love
When having fun with someone else was just enough
But you're older now
Making lists
And you're breaking vows
But you can't let it out
But you can't let it out
All you had was over now
But you can't let it out
Track Name: I'm On Fire
I got a lock jaw, pretty little baby
Talking to me like she knows me
But she doesn't know me
She doesn't know me at all
I got a picture perfect, never worth it ever after that I wanna see
But she'll never see it with me
Cause she's got a better happy ending than the one she'd have with me

Try not to think about the way you move
From side to side, from room to room, and
I’m fire in front of you and
You refuse to burn your hands

I watch you suffer
You chase sleep, you tumble over
I stumble, running towards the stars outside
We try and take shelter
I lost myself last winter
I felt disconnect free flow from your eyes

Try not to think about the way you move
From side to side, from room to room, and
I’m fire in front of you and
You refuse to burn your hands

Try not to think about the way you move
From side to side, from room to room, and
I’m fire in front of you and
You refuse to burn your hands
Track Name: People Change
You walk through walls
You can't even hold a conversation
You could end it all with another 8-Ball
If you had one
And all that pity, it turned your head into a hole
Where the whole world sees your charity case by
Giving you a home, but you're still sick
And I know it

People change, but you're a completely different person
You'd hardly question, but you're hardly even worth it

And I know you've done it
All those rotten things you always talk about
But all you're doing now
Is showing all of us that you can't work it out
Work it out
Desperate times
Call for the desperate phone calls
But maybe after everything
You'll cover the walls with the blood of the men you tried to turn to stone
But you're all alone
Track Name: Devil Girl
She was just a baby
Tangled up in the telephone
Talking 'bout the way she moves
From side to side, from room to room
What could I do?
I was chewing on my tongue
Talking out loud 'bout your point of view
About all I had was laid out in front of you

[Break]

I was staring at the television set
You wanted my attention, and everything got broken
But I tried to fix it
I organized it, I tried to get it back,
But I can't
I never will
Cause I'll never want it again
And I'll have to accept that

Devil girl
You bitch and moan
You act it out
Like you don't know
Like you don't know
Track Name: Shaky Hands
We were looking for chemistry
Sought after fire,
I got what I wanted, you got it all too,
You told us the bad news to seal the wound,
I was busy running after you, and
I mark it on paper
And I left out the poetry, and all the fancy words you taught me, i was
I was busy
I was busy
I was busy running after you

I called it a clean cut
But the hunger kept pulling me back, and I failed to relax
Something told me we were never going back
You called me a beggar
And you left out the history,
You were busy turning your back, turning your back
Turning your back on me

You felt sorry for my soggy lungs
And all I did was blame it on the sun
We were gonna die so young
You felt sorry for my shaky hands
I felt sorry for the panic attacks
We were gonna die in love

I saw the victim in you
You saw it in me too
I hardly knew you
But I knew it wasn't you
How you ruin the mood
With the words that you choose
I faked it all till the last drop of blood had been drained from the cut by the vampire inside you
By the vampire inside of you
(Busy running after you)

You felt sorry for my soggy lungs
And all I did was blame it on the sun
We were gonna die so young
You felt sorry for my shaky hands
I felt sorry for the panic attacks
We were gonna die in love

But you've gone and torn it up

So lay it all on me
Louder than you have been
I wanna make it happen
I wanna make believe
I wanna make it happen
Buckle at your knees
You buckle at your knees
Quicker than you should be
I wanna make you happy
And I could tell you
I could that I'm sorry
But I'm never coming back again
I was busy running after you
But you've gone and torn it up
I wanted you

(You've gone and torn it up)
Track Name: Smoke Alarm
I'm not as stupid as I once was
Not gonna let you pull me backwards
Been keeping tabs on your behavior
Been keeping tabs on where you've been

And you're pointing the finger and calling me selfish
While I'm walking in circles, you're making me helpless
And I can't provide all the color you need,
So I'm taking my leave,
And I'm breaking apart all the pieces of me that you wanted to keep

And you could try and chase me
But you're too busy complaining
Complaining

Far away, those days
These days, I'm home instead
Funny how it never made
Never made a fucking difference

I could try to talk it out but
The smoke alarm is drowning out our voices
And we were watching as they
Burned down the neighborhood

The took the children, they broke the windows
They made an example of all of our kinfolk
But when they break the door from the hinges,
I'll be the first one kicking, but the last to let their hands around my throat.
Their hands around my throat

I'll be the first one kicking, but the last to let their hands around my throat.
Their hands around my throat
I'll be the first one kicking, but the last to let their hands around my throat.
Their hands around my throat

Far away, those days
These days, I'm home instead
Funny how it never made
Never made a fucking difference

And you could try and chase me
But you're too busy complaining
Complaining

I'll be the first one kicking, but the last to let their hands around my throat.
Their hands around my throat
I'll be the first one kicking, but the last to let their hands around my throat.
Their hands around my throat
Track Name: Carbon Copy
Remember me
Dismember me
A carbon copy
Built on disbelief
I've lost my way
Giving in to sympathy
And in left standing in the midst of all the disarray

It's complicated, disassemble all the broken parts, what's left of me
Take what the fuck you need from me

In between I suffocate on myself
I fail to reciprocate our love the way that it felt

I'm not as broken as I make my spirit out to be
I detoxed from the medication, I learned to love the bad parts of me
Cause I'm all I had I left
Til I found heart that's big enough to fix my head
It brought me back from the dead
From my bitter end

Don't waste your lungs
I've already head enough
You already came for blood
And got what wanted from me
I was only picture perfect from our friends behind the scenes
But you never wanted me
No, you never needed me
Coward, selfish, inbetween
Sorry fuck up, sour, selfish, inbetween
Beyond the means
Along the way, it bludgeoned me

I'm a coward, but you're a wretched baby Looking for the easy road to self control
And I may be irresponsible
But I'm about to show my teeth
Ill keep you safe from the sharks if it means the end of me

I'm growing old
I feel it all over my bones
I'd sleep it off if could tell the ghosts
To leave me alone
I’d sleep it off, if I could tell these ghosts to leave me alone
I wish they'd leave me alone

I'm not as sick as I was
But I'm still sick, I'm so fucking sick in my blood
I'm still sick in my blood
I'm still sick in my blood
Blood
Track Name: The Good Fight
Saw god today
Standing in the doorway of my home
Came home today
And I lost who I was and where I came from
I don't wanna believe
In anything than what's in front of me
And I don't wanna concede
But the answers so ideal, it gets the best of me

Tryin to find an escape
I'm carving a map on the bones that built my legs
And you were only a trace
Of the madness left that's yet to come and
I'll keep calling you out
As colors keep on running from your face
Keeping only the part of me that suffers from this city laid to waste

And I don't wanna let you take me over
Cause I'm just about all I have left
So I'll fall asleep, and talk about tomorrow
When you'll only be a figment of yourself

I saw right through you
Ghost of lovers past
Your friends and family never knew you like I do
Holocausts breed better men
Than the men that you've been dealing with
But I swear I'm not the devil, babe,
And god forbid you be the one to blame
Well, God forbid you be the one to blame for anything

God only knows
I've been turning to stone
Lately the silence has been killing me
They've been watching me sleep
Well, God only knows
I've been turning to stone, and
Lately the silence, it's been killing me
Cause they've been watching me sleep

And I don't wanna let you take me over
Cause I'm just about all I have left
So I'll fall asleep, and talk about tomorrow
When you'll only be a figment of yourself
Track Name: Bad Habits
Tear apart the paintings that I did when I was young
Far before I fell apart, before you came for blood
You were all it took to teach me how fear your loved ones
And now I'm keeping out of touch

And I may feel unimportant
But at least I'm feeling something
Tired of running, and I can't live my life that numb no more
Try and kick all my bad habits
But it broke down my defenses
Left me spinning, stumble down the staircase, out the door

I am not the creature painted in your picture books
Nor am I the earthquake that destroyed your neighborhood
Blame it on the cast away, but tidal waves are all the same, and you were always better off without me

And I may feel unimportant
But at least I'm feeling something
Tired of running, and I can't live my life that numb no more
Try and kick all my bad habits
But it broke down my defenses
Left me spinning, stumble down the staircase, out the door
Track Name: Chasing Safety
When I was young, I knew too much
And never said enough
I twisted my gut
And I did it out of love
Did we say enough?
Are we begging for the future?
Hoping something better comes along
Hoping something better comes along
Hoping something better comes along
Hoping something better comes along

[Break]

Settle on down
It's been a long time coming
I wanna make you proud
I wanna bring you the ocean
I wanna bring you the ocean
I wanna bring you the ocean
I wanna make you proud
I wanna bring you the ocean

[Break]

It's been a long time coming
It's been a long time
I wanna make you proud
I wanna bring you the ocean
Roll in the tide
Light up my eyes
Track Name: We Are All But Alive, We Are All But Breathing
You're looking pretty miserable
Ill, it's undeniable
The conditions you live in, they’re deplorable
You've got no place to call your own
And they crawl under your skin
Reinvent your failures, and remind you of your sins
Leave behind the excess to the point of wearing thin
All along you’re trying to forget where you've been

Break apart what's left of you
Tell the world what you've been through
Talk is cheap, but so are the gestures in between
We are all but alive, we are all but breathing

You pretty little baby dressed in blue
Share your love with nothing to lose
You live through the abuse, after all they've done for you
Make your mark in a picture perfect paramedic point of view
You've got nothing to lose, they live their lives above you
They don't mind if you're paralyzed with fear
By the time they open their eyes
You're the victim in disguise
And you owe it to yourself to sever the ties, and live your own life

Break apart what's left of you
Tell the world what you've been through
Talk is cheap, but so are the gestures in between
We are all but alive, we are all but breathing

Who are they to cast a fire to your name?
You broke it off, you went overboard and you made yourself a cast away
They're gonna love you all the same
It was bound to carry out this way, you lit a torch above your family name

They don't mind if you're paralyzed with fear
By the time they open their eyes
You're the victim in disguise
And you owe it to yourself to sever the ties, and live your own life
