Track Name: Chapter Three
I wanna be your substance
I wanna lift you up
I won't spill my guts out
I won't make a mess
I won't peel you open
I won't burn your lungs
I'll smile when you want me
We'll be the best of friends

Her eyelids open and
Seven creeps through
Wrapped up and frozen
He's calling her name
"You need me, lately"
He crooned in her ear
"I don't need that kind of heartbreak
Now, get out of my head"

Hey!
Let me be
Let my feet stay on the ground
Hey!
Let me be
I don't want you
I don't need you no more

Sadly, the grass ain't much greener
And the other side is not what I thought
I gave these city streets a fighting chance
So lift me up and let my mind rot

Hey!
Let me be
Let my feet stay on the ground
Hey!
Let me be
I don't want you
I don't need you no more

I clawed my way up the staircase
The scent of angels burned my nose
In chapter three you can find me
Trapped between the green covers

I wanna be your substance
I wanna lift you up
I won't spill my guts out
I won't make a mess
I won't peel you open
I won't burn your lungs
I'll smile when you want me
We'll be the best of friends

Hey!
Let me be
Let my feet float off the ground
Hey!
Let me be
I want you
I need you, come on
Fly, come fly with me
And I'll be your eternal dream
Track Name: Eulogies
How are you supposed to know
how to start over?
Like the gas-lit stove in your house,
flames don't end and reignite alone.
"Hey, how've you been?" to you, is lusterless;
They can smell it on you...

How can you be perfect sunshine,
when he's tearing down your sky?
Nobody expects perfection,
except inside your eyes...

We're only here to wave and smile.
No conversation necessary for a while.
All you ever knew is just as it was before.
Everyone is drawing outside the lines.

You could never know the weight
of a four year toll.
I found you under the thickest cloud of ash.
It's all too much to be here on your own.
You were drowning in your home,
treading water but refusing to swim your way out...

How can you be perfect sunshine,
when he's tearing down your sky?
Nobody expects perfection,
except inside your eyes...

We're only here to wave and smile.
No conversation necessary for a while.
All you ever knew is just as it was before.
Everyone is drawing outside the lines.

This was your only outlet, or so you'd claim.
Always said "It get's better, we'll grow with age."
This was your only escape.
Always said you'd get better, at least we'd pray...

We're only here to wave and smile.
No conversation necessary for a while.
All you ever knew is just as it was before.
Everyone is drawing outside the lines.
Track Name: A Better Taste
Fling open the closet's doors,
and pick a shadow for me to wear.
Would you be surprised to know it's yours?

I seem happy as can be.
I seem happy as can be.

That big old smile on my face,
hides behind a better taste...

Circling in the quiet while the tendrils bore.
Thoughts of you with some higher power overloads the source.
What do you think I deserve?
I'm a little green notebook that harbors words.
Existing in a crisis, surviving for the worst.

That big old smile on my face,
hides behind a better taste.
In reality, it wasn't my fault,
shift into a higher gear.
Freedom wasn't worth the cost,
of another wasted year.

I grow tired.
Let's not bother.
Don't pay me any mind at all...

Oooooooh
Oooooooooooooooh
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH

That big old smile on my face,
hides behind a better taste.
In reality, it wasn't my fault,
shift into a higher gear.
Freedom wasn't worth the cost,
of another wasted year.
Track Name: The Longest Leash
I would go out tonight,
but I am afraid of what I might do.
Lock all the doors, let the dark swallow the key.
When your light shines, it cuts through me.

I like drinking the ocean, on the rocks.
I'll have you for the night, so you'll do what I want.

I owe a debt to the moon.
A contract from a bite is all I am.
She needs blood in the form of a young one,
whose are the same shade as mine.

I like drinking the ocean, on the rocks.
I'll have you for the night, so you'll do what I want.

Take a glance in the mirror,
all you would see is fur and teeth,
but baby, that's not what's underneath.
Trust me, I've robbed many hearts.
I'm closer than you would like to think,
but that's not the way that I'd like to think,
all the time.

"Sabbath part"

Take a glance in the mirror,
all you would see is fur and teeth,
but baby, that's not what's underneath.
Trust me, I've robbed many hearts.
I'm closer than you would like to think,
but that's not the way that I'd like to think,
anymore.

I'm dying of thirst,
please don't let me take another drink,
and open your hands to this silver piece.
Tie me to a pine,
and keep my eyes open so I can see
the moon staring blankly at me,
one more time.
