Track Name: Here At The End Of All Things (ft. Viana Newton of Sienna)
The letters in the sand quickly washing away
With every step you take towards me
I'm sorry it couldn't turn out how we thought it would be

Don't wait for me you've cried a thousand times
Our time is up
Lets say our last goodbyes
As we watch the tides collide
Get up get up get up
And stop crying
Get up get up get up
I'm done trying
Get up get up get up
Cause in time we'll be just fine

2 years it ends today
Without a thought in my mind
Your getting tired of lying
To me
Don't erupt, shut up, and we'll avoid catastrophe

Your bodies like a glacier on the ocean
Ice cold makes me scare to get close but I'm not done yet
Stop being so quite
My minds racing waiting for eruption
High hopes but it seems I lost my luck so I'm done playing these stupid games

Don't wait for me you've cried a thousand times
Our time is up
Lets say our last goodbyes
As we watch the tides collide
Get up get up get up
And stop crying
Get up get up get up
I'm done trying
Get up get up get up
Cause in time we'll be just fine

We're both at blame
Cause deep down we new we weren't one in the same
But don't think that these frames won't support your face
Then don't question if the memories will fade away

Legs of lead and I'm sure I see the shore line
Empty bottles and I swear ill make it home fine
No more words, I'm convinced I've lost my breath
No more words, let my actions do the rest
Track Name: Still Can't Crow
I can feel the waves crash into my bed.
I'm slowly drifting away where no one can find me.
But how can I fall asleep with all the screaming,
its always in my head.

Telling me to close my eyes and making me say goodnight.

Telling me to close my eyes and making me say goodnight.

Because this is where I stand and this is where I come from.
I poured my heart out to the world
Now take it in, just take it in.
We all have a story to tell but if we stand together we can face the doubt.
Who knows what tomorrow brings but for now I say goodbye.
Track Name: Because, Fuck You That's Why (ft. Sean O'Loughlin of Aurora)
This clock keeps ticking backwards
You're stuck there living in the past
Please help me find my way she says
But I need to catch my breath

I can't keep reassuring minutes that the hour hand won't pass
The alarm has been sounding off
We've slept to long, but I've woken up at last

Time to face these mirrors on your own
Tell me how you're doing once you've grown

So keep thinking you're the only one in this world
Who has to swallow their nerves and find a new beginning
But with a mindset like that
Baby just try to face the facts
It's time to call it quits and pack up your bags

Just pack up you're bags
Because who are you to measure me
When all I am is what you see
A player in a broken scene
Another day another dream

Time to face these mirrors on your own
Tell me how you're doing once you've grown

So keep thinking you're the only one in this world
Who has to swallow their nerves and find a new beginning
But with a mindset like that
Baby just try to face the facts
It's time to call it quits and pack up your bags
Cause I can't do this anymore

Just breath just breath
You have all the things you need
She's only bringing you down
So don't look for something that can't be found
What I am saying
Is she's always playing, craving
Looking to find, trying to hide
Everything she puts inside her life

I'd like to say you're perfect
But this shits not fucking worth it
Cause I know my friends have got my back
And we know that's something that you lack

They've told me time and time again
"Hold your head up you'll get through this"
With my friends by my side
We'll keep singing on and on

So I keep my head in the clouds
This time I'm not looking down
Because I'm a dreamer at heart
Where one line ends another starts

So keep up now don't be afraid
When this book is all but decayed
When stories end at old age
Just smile and turn another page

Take one last look now
And i'll take my final bow
Your just a memory
And we're fucking history
Track Name: Tiger Lily
Dimly lit the fire keeps the darkness at bay.
Bitter sweet sharing songs filled with the words I wanna say.
But I'm shaken up and its hard to speak.
As you stare I'm focused on my feet.
Can't you see what you're doing to me.
Keeping the light from the dark was never meant to be.
This settings perfect for a once in a life time masterpiece.

Now-a-days we're either born into a mound of gold or forced to feed on hopes of change and tales our fathers told.
But I'm not looking for wealth.
No I'm not looking for power.
To be honest I'm content with you sitting by this fire.

You know me better than I thought you did.
And I can't sleep with all these thought surrounding me
I'm tossed and I can't dream.

Now-a-days we're either born into a mound of gold or forced to feed on hopes of change and tales our fathers told.
But I'm not looking for wealth.
No I'm not looking for power.
To be honest I'm content with you sitting by this fire.

(by this fire)

I'm gonna make you mine.
Smoke out the bugs and turn up all the stars in the sky.
I'm gonna make you mine tonight.
Marshmallow caviar, water logged seats and this old guitar.
Its me and you, its you and me, and theres no where else I'd rather be.
Lets burn our stress away.
My hearts been meaning to tell you what my lips cant say.

I wanna reminisce about tonight,
and if you're wondering why.

Because I'm bound to you.

I'm bound to you.
