Dreams Don't Come True Everyone is a setting sun So just leave me alone for awhile And I hope and pray for another day I can spend all alone with your smile So just leave me alone for the day with your smile I’d lose my mind if we could be All the things we wanted to be But somehow we just missed a beat And dreams just don’t come true Dreams don’t come true So I look around and I think I’ve found all those feelings I once put away And I turn my face to another place I can spend all alone with your smile So just leave me alone for the day with your smile I’d lose my mind if we could be All the things we wanted to be But somehow we just missed a beat And dreams just don’t come true Dreams don’t come true

Hold My Breath Get back There’s a new way Don’t let them take anything else So sick It doesn’t matter I’ll never get anywhere I can feel you start to breathe Drowning all the time So I will hold my breath until I die I’m trying not to fight the undertow I guess that there are worse things that I’ve known Sit still Feeling useless Be careful you’re floating away Tick tock But does it matter I’ll never be anything I can hear you start to bleed Drowning all the time So I will hold my breath until I die I’m trying not to fight the undertow I guess that there are worse things that I’ve known Breathe Drowning all the time So I will hold my breath to stay alive Well I can feel the pressure start to grow I guess that there are worse things that I’ve known Still breathing now

Cool Summer 04:00
Cool Summer I woke up a year ago and someone told me things would get better But I found out the easy way that things don’t change they only seem different today But somehow we got lost inside the only thing we planned So I’ll get high and watch you die or wallow in the sand So you go out and sell your soul do what you’re told it makes you so lazy But good advice won’t cure your vices pay the price it only gets better with age Cool Summer

Every Someday Every someday that I never knew Every sorrow That I put on you I know I know I know I know I wait for every single day to come undone I wait for you Every hopeless happiness abused Every Someday That I hold so true

February Ghost I try so hard This feeling will never let me go We’ve lied so long To ourselves and everyone we know Daylight has come Left me here with your February ghost Play nice stay calm You can heal every scrape and every fall It makes me feel like I should fall It makes me feel like I should fall Tongue tied wounds closed Left you here in a temporary pose Head high face long You can feed on the strength of every fall It makes me feel like I should fall It makes me feel like I should fall Somewhere we lost it all and if only our hope would come back Then maybe the worst it won’t last for all we know I try so hard This feeling will never let me fall It makes me feel like I should fall It makes me feel like I should fall yeah you know We should fall yeah you know

Always Down 02:38
Always Down Everyone’s older Blistered and colder I can feel the change Stuck in a vacuum Withered without you Lying here in vain Always to blame We’re not the same I’m always down and in the way I’m just saying I’m just saying I’m just saying Why should I believe Nothing is easy No one can please me Hide away again So many questions Making exceptions Tried to lead the way
7.
Wake Up 02:55
Wake Up Every time I look around I see the writing on the wall So I take a photograph of every picture that I own Everything’s in black and white and now my head is feeling grey Staring in the mirror trying to put my teeth back in my face I can’t wake up How can I just walk away with both my feet stuck on the ground Look at all the people staring but I just can’t make a sound I know that I’m sleeping and it’s just complete loss of control Try to push the fear away and pull myself out of this hole I can’t wake up So let me sleep So let me dream
8.
Story Of Your Life I never knew there’d come a day When everything would be okay You sit around and wonder why you never satisfy yourself The story of your life It took awhile to understand the situation's at an end A fleeting moment from your youth You never turned it into stone The story of your life You faded away And now there’s nothing left to play With every word you give away If giving up was your excuse It always put you in your place

Drone On 03:44
Drone On So it goes We have to say goodbye to everything Leave me here against my will I don’t want to play anymore Always been cold Too late to decide Everything I need will never stay inside the drone You should know That fate decides the worst and the best of it all Don’t mistake your time is close So make every choice that you can

Would It Be So Bad As I sit here in the evening well I feel like I could die So I put all of the pieces of my life into a pile And I go out of my way but there’s nothing left to say So I wash it all away and down the drain Would it be so Would it be so bad Would it be so bad if everything was gone So I get up and I put on all my thoughts from yesterday And I’m walking down the street and I pretend that I still care It’s the same thing everyday When my feelings start to fade As I push them down and crush another day Would it be so Would it be so bad Would it be so bad if everything was gone I guess it would Yeah they tell me I should cherish all the good things that I have And be grateful for the people and the memories we’ve shared But it’s so hard to relate cause it’s easier to hate So I guess I’ll do my best if I still can Would it be so Would it be so bad Would it be so bad if everything was gone

Missing Things Swallow all those hollow Things that you once ignored I know I’ll show my own feelings I never should wallow in your sorrow Feels like I’m always on borrowed time though with all those Things I’m not missing at all Too late don’t wait no hate Feels like I’m lost in my Shadow so low can’t grow Even when I get told Let go follow there’s no Reason for you to be Shallow I know all those Things I’m not missing at all You’ve been holding out again for one more day You’ve been holding out again Another day Swallow all those hollow Things that you once ignored I know I’ll show my own Things I'm not missing at all

Starve 03:46
Starve Take me down Take me away Let me go for a change I’ve been around Nothing to say I can only complain I won’t let you starve But I don’t know what to say I can’t heal these scars So I’ll cover up the pain I’ve been sold Nowhere to stay There’s no hope to betray Nothing is real Show me some space Am I happy or sane I won’t let you starve But I don’t know what to say I can’t heal these scars So I’ll cover up the pain All in all it’s easier to fade All in all it’s okay
