Track Name: I Live Through You
And I wonder if I'm insane or the last with a brain
I pull out my tongue and can't explain it to you, to my dismay
When everyday is a fight and you're losing the war
I live through you, now make me move let's see what I'm here for

Your time is mine
Your faith is blind
Your love assigned
Your soul enshrined

My eyes won't close transport to the shows inside my mind, in common time
You talk to the sky and you'll find is the lines have long since fried
Thoughts as old and dried out as the wind, you've nothing left to learn
When the angels watch the crosses burn, tell me where do you have left to turn?

Your time is mine
Your faith is blind
Your love assigned
Your soul enshrined
Track Name: Lua (Bright Eyes Cover)
I know that it is freezing but I think we have to walk
I keep waving at the taxis; they keep turning their lights off
But Julie knows a party at some actor’s west side loft
Supplies are endless in the evening; by the morning they’ll be gone.

When everything is lonely I can be my own best friend
I get a coffee and the paper; have my own conversations
With the sidewalk and the pigeons and my window reflection
The mask I polish in the evening, by the morning looks like shit.

And I know you have a heavy heart; I can feel it when we kiss
So many men stronger than me have thrown their backs out trying to lift it
But me I’m not a gamble you can count on me to split
The love I sell you in the evening, by the morning won’t exist.

You’re looking skinny like a model with your eyes all painted black
You just keep going to the bathroom always say you’ll be right back
Well it takes one to know one, kid, I think you’ve got it bad
But what’s so easy in the evening, by the morning is such a drag.

I’ve got a flask inside my pocket we can share it on the train
If you promise to stay conscious I will try and do the same
We might die from medication, but we sure killed all the pain
But what was normal in the evening, by the morning seems insane.

And I’m not sure what the trouble was that started all of this
The reasons all have run away but the feeling never did
It’s not something I would recommend, but it is one way to live
Cause what is simple in the moonlight, by the morning never is
What’s so simple in the moonlight, now is so complicated
What’s so simple in the moonlight, so simple in the moonlight, so simple in the moonlight.
Track Name: Collapse
Stormy day will pass
My mental collapse
This physical relapse
The end is coming fast
I strayed so far today
I tried to find my way
And that new shining day
Is just too far away

Don't let them take me away
I want to fight another day
And if I can't come back this way
Please don't let them, take me away.

Tear down these walls
That make things seem so far
That gleaming distant star
Tears me apart
As hard as I try
I always know that I
Will forever fail to thrive
When I'm struggling inside

Don't let them take me away
I want to fight another day
And if I can't come back this way
Please don't let them, take me away.
Track Name: Drained
I felt the pain, as the rain erodes my brain I'm so drained and
I regret the days that we played our games and you made our mistakes
I lament the time that I wasted with you writing your rhymes and
I was blind but I have should have knew you fell right through

Somehow after all of these years, I'm still here.
Somehow through all the blood and tears, I'm still here.
Though all of my worst fears appeared, I'm still here.
And though all of my dreams became nightmares, I'm still here.

You always said that I'm never alone and you were my friend and
I got too close and the needles that stabbed pushed me to the edge and
I ran to you, I had no where to turn, nothing else to do and
I trusted you, but I should have seen your wicked hue.

Somehow after all of these years, I'm still here.
Somehow through all the blood and tears, I'm still here.
Though all of my worst fears appeared, I'm still here.
And though all of my dreams became nightmares, I'm still here.
Track Name: Fever Dream
I'll take this bottle of pills 'till I feel something or nothing at all
I will not let go of you, no, I won't let you fall.
For the first time in my life I can finally smile.
Through fever dreams and waking sleep you barricaded the bile.

I wouldn't worry about me, I'll make it out just fine.
It may seem bad now and then, but it happens from time to time.
Just because it hurts doesn't mean I'd wish it all away.
Don't waste your energy, don't turn your lips to pray.

I wish I knew words that are as beautiful as you.
But nothing seems to fit so I guess this will have to do
I just love you so much that it makes my head spin.
Who knows where I would be if what was, never would have been.

I wouldn't worry about me, I'll make it out just fine.
It may seem bad now and then, but it happens from time to time.
Just because it hurts doesn't mean I'd wish it all away.
Don't waste your energy, don't turn your lips to pray.

I wouldn't worry about me, I'll make it out just fine.
It may seem bad now and then, but it happens from time to time.
Just because it hurts doesn't mean I'd wish it all away.
Don't waste your energy, don't turn your lips to pray.
Track Name: Fly
Before I found you here I trembled with fear
But as tomorrow comes our way, I'd give anything for one more day.

And you put the sun in my darkened sky and
I can feel you in my mind I
Wish that I could buy some time before
You and I fly

Emptiness was filling me and turned my white to grey.
You have saved my life and mind and saved my every day.

And you put the sun in my darkened sky and
I can feel you in my mind I
Wish that I could buy some time before
You and I fly

Fly
Fly
Fly

Before I found you here I trembled with fear
But as tomorrow comes our way, I'd give anything for one more day.

And you put the sun in my darkened sky and
I can feel you in my mind I
Wish that I could buy some time before
You and I fly
Track Name: Breaking Through
Breaking Through my eyes
seeing through my hands
feeling 'round my brain to
find the answers in the sand
drain the fluid so i can feel the
weather on my face
take my hand so
we can watch our fingers interlace

I made it out of hell
And i'd do it all again
To meet you on the other side
And hold you gorgeous hand

When the wrists dissolve and you can
see right through the veins
I'll be in the kitchen
watching the passing trains
take a look inside my mind so
you can finally see
what it's like to love you
and knowing you love me

I made it out of hell
And i'd do it all again
To meet you on the other side
And hold you gorgeous hand

I made it out of hell
And i'd do it all again
To meet you on the other side
And hold you gorgeous hand
