Track Name: Be Still
I was well along the road to self redemption
Feeling pretty good about myself
Then I stopped along the way cause I lost direction
Who knew you'd be there to help

But my breath stops when you walk in my direction
Wont you be still my heart?

I was well down the road of self reflection
Taking time to learn about myself
But there was ons simple question
That I couldn't answer you now

Cause my breath stops when you walk in my direction
Wont you be still my heart just this once?
You could stop my hands from shakin' so violent this time
And I could try to give this one more shot
Track Name: Feigning Fight
Careful eyes as i cross the street of a crooked town that I used to be
On summer nights where I'd try to see all the skyline of the small city

Oh feigning fight, I'll try to take stance
Interested in things of importance
Shallow is my view, mental atrpohy
Just tell me all was lost in innocence

In my car, I'd wait at your school, so many days I would wait for you
That parking lot now I detest and the awful feeling that it left

Oh feigning fight, I'll try to take stance
Interested in things of importance
Shallow is my view; mental atrophy
Just tell me all was lost in innocence

Pillars of light in some "grand design"
Tell me, how this all was supposed to align?
Can I be saved, does this feel right?
Well Jesus only backs me in this fight for so long
Track Name: Home
"It's easier than this" I remember you told me once before
The last time, well I tried but I failed
Its hard enough to see what you've done to me
But the end justifies the means
Or so I'm told, I'm told

Everyone conspires to take time to realize that
There's something wrong with the place the we call our
Home is justified by where my heart is; well I've had no heart
At least quite some time, some time

There's one small thing that I remind
Myself not to lose every time
My head spins round and round but there was no way
To ever get it right, not today
Track Name: The Fox and the Rabbit
When I said that I meant it, well I never meant that "it" would last this long
Found you across a room of people that I thought I knew; how could this go wrong?

So wrong.

You were young and frightened rabbit, trying hard to break old habbits of hiding in your hole.
I, sly and cunning fox, looking for a detox of relationship
Then the fall came and ground it started to freeze and you, you came to me
And all this time, I thought you were mine, but I was wrong, so now I feast
I feast on you

Im a horrible beast, and I want it all. No, I want it all.
I've prepared for the feast, and I want it all. No, I want it all
Track Name: Hold Your Tongue
Thinking through the alibis that you could have tried to give
well surely you can try to pin the blame on someone else
But you'll lie, lie your way through this one
just lie, lie down right there

Hold your tongue, you've nothing to say
Ignorance fills a mind that wont hesitate
But you're not the forgiving kind

I've better places to be, try to see what you see
Wherever you think I am
Hell, I'll take you with me

Please try, try to understand
My words, they are not secondhand

So we'll hold our breath and swallow our pride
cause all this will be is one more night
But you're not the forgiving kind, I've learned this thus far
And I'm not the forgiving kind, I've tried from the start
But we're not your typical kind
Track Name: Over The Sea
I have this habit of wearing my heart on my sleeve
Its a little ridiculous to believe
But I do it so gracefully

Shaking and shivered, the chattering of teeth on a
cold and lonely morning
where I would
Look out over the sea, for you.

We are who we are, we have our faults, we have our subtleties
We are who we are, we have our falls; we are but human beings
We have our faults, we are human beings; we have subtleties
We are who we are

And theres no going back now
No theres no going back now
We've done what we've done
