Track Name: Somebody Poisoned the Wishing Well
Now I realize you were beautiful inside.

Surviving tidal waves.
I still drive myself insane.
You got inside my lungs, stole my guts, and ran away.
I don’t deserve this. I said nothing more than what I meant.
I wish that you could say the same. I wish you could say the same.
I wish we could have stayed the same.

I knew pain and love the moment I heard your laugh.
The sound of a siren: the thrill of a summer wind: intoxicating; musical; lovely.
I thanked my lucky stars for every day gone by (by your side).
And every night we felt more alive (love aligned)
made me realize you were beautiful inside.

I guess I’m breaking the rules. Cause I’m not quite gone.
I loved you more than you, more than you’ll ever know.
I guess I’m not making the cut. You really fucked this up.
I’m leaving: leaving forever, it’s time.

I knew better from the moment I heard your laugh.
The sound of a siren: the chill of a winter wind: intoxicating; musical; deadly.
I thanked my lucky stars the day we said goodbye. (It’s alright)
Those sleepless nights, the stupid fights… (Still I tried)
now I realize you were hideous inside.

You’re poison, a venomous voice.
You’re a clever one with a silver tongue.
I will sing this song and be glad you’re gone.
I will sing this song and be okay. I’ll be okay.

I knew too well the moment I heard your laugh.
The sound of a siren: the chill of a winter wind: intoxicating; musical; deadly.

You’re poison, a venomous voice.
You’re a clever one with a silver tongue, I will sing this song and be glad you’re gone.
(I thanked my lucky stars…)
You’re poison, a venomous voice.
(…the day we said goodbye.)
You’re a clever one with a silver tongue.
I will sing this song and be okay.
Track Name: Never Tell Me the Odds
Come on. Take me far away.
A place no one can reach.
Nobody but you and me.
We could just fly away.
Get lost in outer space.
With you I’m okay. I’m okay.

I hear you singing me to sleep:
The purest, lucid symphony.
I see you every night in dreams.
You watch me, you haunt me.

Here I am again.
My lower lip is trembling.
I’m on my knees, I’m begging you.
I’ve fallen, make me whole.

Let’s just go away.
A place no one can reach.
Nobody but you and me.
We could just fly away.
Get lost in outer space.
With you I’m okay. I’m okay.

I know you’re holding me tonight.
A moment suspended in time.
I feel you. (You’re) part of everything
And nothing, and something else.

Here I am again.
My lower lip is trembling.
On my knees, I’m begging you.
I’ve fallen, make me whole.

Let’s just go away.
A place no one can reach.
Nobody but you and me.
We could just fly away.
Get lost in outer space.
With you I’m okay. I’m okay.

The stars up in the sky,
Burning bright.. they’re for you and me.
The stars
Stars up in the sky
(they’re) Burning for us
Burning for me
But mostly you.
Track Name: Clean This
A bitter morning,
A cold and dreary dawn;
Today the rain will wash away
The hate: the pain; the days without you.

Next stop is a sure shot:
Hoping I can make sure this one counts.
I won’t let go
Of what I know to be the only chance I’ve got to be anything.

And so the battle begins.
Let’s go to where we’ve been before.
Shut your mouth and know you’re okay.
Shut your eyes and pray for something more.

I know it hurts but no fear.
Don’t show your weakness like before.
Shut your mouth and know you’re okay.
Shut your eyes and hope for something more.

It won’t come easy.
Give it up to me?
(Give it all to me?)
Oh no…it won’t come easy.

Give it up to me?
(Give it all to me?)
Oh no…it won’t come easy.

The summer’s comfort
has yet to leave me warm.
And all the rays from every day
Could never change the way I once was.

Last stop was a dead spot:
Wishing I could take it all right back.
But what I fear
Is that as time flies by, I’ll try to make things right and lose everything.

And so the battle begins.
Let’s go to where we’ve been before.
Shut your mouth and know you’re okay.
Shut your eyes and pray for something more.

I know it hurts but no fear.
Don’t show your weakness like before.
Shut your mouth and know you’re okay.
Shut your eyes and pray for something more.

It won’t come easy.
No it won’t come easy.

Give it up to me?
(Give it all to me?)
Oh no…it won’t come easy.

Give it up to me?
(Give it all to me?)
Oh no…it won’t come easy.
No!

Shut your mouth and know you’re okay.
Shut your eyes and pray for something more.
It won’t come easy.
Track Name: Ghosts of My Youth
Give me resolve to say I’m coming clean.
Show me a way and let your light surround me.
I’m so lost, drowning in a consequence I could have avoided.
But I had to let you go, you know.

Is this a lie? Am I just caught between
reality and all my stupid hopes and dreams?
I've got a lot to say.
I'm screaming, can you hear me?

In all of space and time, through all the ways we tried,
we found a perfect lie and held on way too tight.

The ghosts of my youth are haunting me.
I see their faces so clearly.
The ghosts of my youth; torturing me.
I never let them go.

3 years later, it's just so serene.
We had it all when we were only 17.
But now you're gone. I'm burning in your bitterness.
Let it go and we'll both be better off, you know.

Take a second and remember me.
Never forget, we got along just swimmingly.
There's still a place for this in your heart. Please forgive me.

In all of space and time, through all the ways we tried,
we found a perfect lie and held on way too tight.

The ghosts of my youth are haunting me.
I see their faces so clearly.
The ghosts of my youth, torturing me.
I never let them go.

I miss you. I'm so sorry brother.
I never meant to crush you.
I only wanted you to find the fire within.
So find the fire within, I'll be waiting.

In all of space and time, through all the ways we tried,
we found a perfect lie and held on way too tight.

The ghosts of my youth are haunting me.
I see their faces so clearly.
The ghosts of my youth; torturing me.
I never let them go.
Track Name: I Signed My Own Death Warrant
They had no one but themselves
To get them through the dark:
The fury of a fire burning
Deep within their hearts.
Move forward, never looking back.
What they see is what they want to see
Until they watch their world fade to black.

Abandon ship. Make your escape.
A little hope can go an awful long way.

If they were nervous or afraid
you’d never, ever know.
Every face with bloodied lips,
eyes made of stone.

Always truer to themselves than to anyone,
Or anything else.
But they know there’s something else.

The battle’s begun.
It still rages on. This will never end.
Yet somehow I know I will conquer them.

They were savage, they were armed
With swords born in flame.
The souls they reached were empty, hollow.
Lives consumed by pain.
I never thought they’d make it here.
But I can feel the footsteps, the breath on my neck.
I’m burning alive. I’m burnt alive by fear.

Abandon ship. Make your escape.
A little hope can go an awful long way.

Am I everything I wanted to be?
An empty shell, a mask of vanity.
There’s so much more than what the eyes can see,
Much more than what we’d want to believe.

But I believe in so much more.

The battle’s begun.
It still rages on. This will never end.
Yet somehow I know I will conquer them.
