Track Name: Vapid Eyes
i had my heart in the right place
at the edge of my bed
in the blank stares we shared

cut off your ears
and sew your eyes shut
so the last thing you'll ever see
is the fact that i'm the cancer
i'm malignant and you're benign

just keep walking away
with the shame stuck in my neck

is there anything stopping me
from burning down these nights we have left?

i hang my hopes higher
for every centimeter i have sunk

i had my heart in the right place
and at the edge of my bed
and in the blank stares we shared
was the only times i felt alive

just keep walking away
with the shame stuck in my neck
is there anything stopping me
from burning down these nights we have left?

the only time i felt alive
Track Name: Nothing in Unison
in a world of neon lights
i'll spend these restless nights
and if the good die young
i'll be here forever

since i was fifteen
i've been marching to the beat of an EKG
i swear
that i've learned to let go

i guess we're back to being strangers
maybe that's for the best
after seeing what you've become
you washed off your true colours
and i'm done painting them back on

i asked you to wait
because i could never relate to
your happy endings
and your perfect little life

and i guess we're back to being strangers
maybe that's for the best
after seeing what you've become
you washed off your true colours
and i'm done painting them back on

i asked you to wait
i could never relate to
your happy endings
and your perfect little life

no longer tuned
to the sound of your voice
no harmonies, nothing in sync

no longer tuned
to the sound of your voice
no harmonies, nothing in unison

i can't find my way back home
on my own
and with your help
i might get there someday
i'll cherish this moment
forever
Track Name: Keep the Lights Alive
i put my sins out on display
are you dreaming of someone like me?
can you feel me from where you are?
reaching out, caving in

i could've been a heartbreaker
a risktaker, a troublemaker
but I'm the background scenery
in your paintings and in your mind

someone once said that she were disappearing
somehow growing smaller every day
but when she opened her mouth to sing
she was bigger in every way

feed me with your love
with your hopes and your dreams
keep the lights alive
"honey, don't let it go to your head."
Track Name: Antipathy
shallow air breaks the scent
of cigarettes and yesterday's regrets
i bet you won't remember a thing
when you're digging your own early grave
someday i swear that i'll be more
than just a place for you to rest your head

trembling and stuttering
it's like winter when we're close
and i can't get the taste of you
out of my mouth

if there's no words left that can save us
and if there's no strength left to find a way out
i'd rather be lost in love
than to be found alive

i'll keep building these walls around me
but i could never let you in

someday i swear that i'll be more
than just a place for you to rest your head
but i could never let you in
