Track Name: Feedback Loop
I’ve got a mouthful of daggers
But they sit on the tip of my tongue
I cringe you pull the trigger
Your name is like a loaded gun

And it don’t matter what we do
Give you compassion or attitude
Feel like a failure, I can’t get through
Getting caught in your feedback loop

And you’re trying to do better
But there’s a dark spot on the sun
You’re up against a wall
When all you wanna do is run

And it don’t matter what we do
Give you compassion or attitude
Feel like a failure, I can’t get through
Getting caught in your feedback loop
Track Name: City Limits
We’re wander lusting
We’re dreaming of escape
We are transient people
But crave a home to make

We work so hard
That we’re barely living
We walk so far before city limits

These crowded streets are
Surrounded by
Millions of people
Who never wonder why?
Or want to try

We work so hard
That we’re barely living
We walk so far before city limits
Track Name: Edge
I can’t stand up straight
or be too loud
I will apologize
for acting up and acting out

there aint nothing left
you make me feel so sick
there aint nothing left
so every day I clench my fists

you are recognized as you take a bow
everybody watches you no one notices when shes not around
Track Name: At Bay
Get me out of here
I'm drowning in a sea of pictures
All I know about the friends I make
Is that they never stick around
All I know about this place
Is it will always bring you down
Bring you down

Keep me at bay
No I don't want to know your name
I'm sick of seeing you go

We'll listen to the dead poet sing over beer and ale
We'll scream into the night like no ones there
This old bar has seen enough of my money
I'm tired of sleeping, I just get lonely
So baby, let's stay awake
And the sun will rise

Keep me at bay
No I don't want to know your name
I'm sick of seeing you go
Track Name: The Tug
Sometimes feeling explode into lots of tiny pieces
That penetrate your heart and all your inside spaces
Sometimes I feel alone like I’m without a spark
Sometimes I get real scared and don’t know how to start

To speak to anyone
To leave for anywhere
To learn to love without
The tug of all my fears

Most of the time I don’t go to bed to sleep
But to take off my mind from the darkest deepest
Thoughts I have been putting off
A siren in my head
A loneliness that speaks to me so often that I dread

To speak to anyone
To leave for anywhere
To learn to love without
The tug of all my fears
Track Name: None to Spare
I miss you even though you live right down the street
Every time I leave my house I get so lost in cracks between
There’s static on the phone lines
No way to reach
There’s static on the phone lines
And I can’t breath
We chase down time to waste it
With none left to spare
Misdirected, anxious
Grasping for air

I miss you
Every time you leave
I get so caught on what’s going on inside of me
There’s static on the phone lines
No way to reach
There’s static on the phone lines
You hang up because you can’t hear me

We take no time to make it
Got none to spare
Misdirected, anxious
Grasping for air
But you’re not there
Track Name: Nice to Know
It’s nice to know the curve of your body
The cracks and lines
The way your shoulders sit when you say your sorry

You’ve got a scar across your chest
But it aint from a heart break

We don’t look right
They look twice
We don’t look right
They look at us twice

Every September I’m holding my breath and crossing my fingers
There’s a chill in the air behind our backs
What’s gunna happen to us this winter?
I wanna hold you close to my chest
But there’s been a mark made
I’m scared of the heart break

We don’t look right
They look twice
We don’t look right
They look at us twice
Track Name: No Where to Go
The spaces where we live are in small places
The cracks in between their dirty and broken and not so cheap

We lay in your bed awake
Listen to the radio
Left of the dial
Slow and sweet
A song that we don't know

We laugh at talks of our futures
Because they don't look bright
We barely have the stars at night to guide us home
And nowhere to go

I am high energy
You call me A.D.D.
Self diagnose and sedate
Taking the edge off the days

We fall asleep in your bed
Dreaming of faraway places
I've got you caught in my head
Somewhere warm and green
Where we both can breathe

We laugh at talks of our futures
Because they don't look bright
We barely have the stars at night to guide us home
And nowhere to go
Track Name: Somewhere to Go
Your eyes are overflowing
This cities rapidly outgrowing
You’re tired
I’m feeling worn out
We’re overextended and underwhelmed

And we need somewhere to go

And we’re overgrown
Our roots get tangled, our braches bow
There’s a weight pressing down
I can’t breath
Overshadowed

And we need somewhere to go
Track Name: Looking Back
The tides are against us
The moon is bright
I can feel a hunger build and bite

Are you laughing yet?
Are you looking back
At all the pretty picture
The dust collects
Are you laughing yet
Are you looking back?

Who can we blame?
I am scared to death, I am running in place
We bend and break, the rules we make

Are you laughing yet?
Are you looking back
At all the pretty picture
The dust collects
Are you laughing yet
Are you looking back?
