Track Name: Caught Up
I messed up, I've taken this too far as far as I can see
I'm not focusing on what is, because you're what could be

And I don't know what to make of all of this
If there's a part of me I think you'll miss
Because I have been waiting up for days
Or long enough to say I've been wondering if you'd stay

Caught up but still behind
This time I don't see the point
To be alone is terrifying because sometimes you need the noise

And I don't know what to make of all of this
If there's a piece of me I think you'll miss
Because I have been waiting up for days
Or long enough to say I've been wondering if you'd stay

Crazy days
You left me with a crazy haze of knowing you
And in these times, have I been on your mind?
You have been on mine

Call me crazy, I heard you say that you were still holding on
I need to grip the situation so I can move along
I've got to move along
Track Name: I Was Wrong
I was wrong
And you were barely holding on
It's a sign of the worst news you have heard since you were young
Wouldn't you say
That it takes an act of bravery
To say all the things that I seem to bring to the table?

It seems insane to me
That you'd be doing this deliberately
Because it's not always in the things you see
In which you believe
So leave me if you change your mind
I'll always be there by your side
Or you can go on your own way
I'll try and go mine

I was wrong
And you were barely holding on
It's a sign of the worst news you have heard since you were young
Track Name: Our Love (And What It's Come To Be)
I've made a mistake
Your fragile heart can break
So easily
Under me

There's so much to lose
And I've been so confused
About our love
And what it's come to be

Can you take that away, love?
Can you take that away
When we fight every day, love
To keep us the same?

A shadow figure holds open many doors
But I'll stay in, because I've been doing alright
And I know if I left I'd only feel regret
All you've done is love me all the same

Can you take that away, love?
Can you take that away
When we fight every day, love
To keep us the same
Track Name: I Don't Need To Know
What can I expect?
I have grown to laugh
At every single aspect of my life
But there was you to keep something alive

With all of these times that I completely lose my mind
You have grown so patient with me
And if there's different feelings that have grown
I don't need to know

Time and time again
I've come to expect
That you'd be going through the same things that you do
At times before you go and speak the truth

With all of these times that I completely lose my mind
You have grown so patient with me
And if there's different feelings that have grown
I don't need to know
Track Name: Nothing
If I'm told
I mean, told enough
To let you in my life
I know you'd steal
Steal my words
Until they mean nothing more to me

Because I was old
I mean, old enough
To just let you slip my mind
I know you'd steal
Steal my world
Until in means nothing more to me

I said I told you so many times my love
I'll never ever let you go
Because you stole
You stole my heart
And now it means nothing more to me
Track Name: January
We are all seeking truth
It's not so hard to do
But if you look too hard for something it gets easy to lose
And does it bother you?
Because I don't think it should
If you believe what you say you believe
Then it shouldn't be hard to choose

But still you have to go
Open your mouth and make a path destruction

Just admit you're wrong
I can't see it done
You're ruining everything for everyone
All of the time

Can we ignore the facts?
Can we just take them back?
If evidence and common sense are not enough for you
Then what would you say
If I told you that I think that it's insane
That your belief and theology have made you this way

I know there's something to gain
But morals and judgement are just miles, and miles away

Just admit you're wrong
I can't see it done
You're ruining everything for everyone

We are all seeking truth
It's not so hard to do
Track Name: Relax My Eyes
I've been looking for a new way to start
But keep the memory of your heart
One of the things that I've used to light up

I've been staring at the back of the room
Relax my eyes and I get confused
At all of the things around me

Because if still I see
What's been there for me
Under still white sheets
You try to see
That if your life's played
On this perfect wave
Would you ever try to say
That you were made this way?
You were made this way

I've been staring at the back of the room
Relax my eyes and I get confused
At all of the things around me

Because if still I see
What's been there for me
Under still white sheets
You try to see
That if your life's played
On this perfect wave
Would you ever try to say
That you were made this way?
You were made this way

Because you were all I see
And you were waiting there for me
And I will linger on you
Just like smoke

Because if still I see
What's been there for me
Under still white sheets
You try to see
That if your life's played
On this perfect wave
Would you ever try to say
That you were made this way?
You were made this way
Track Name: Blue Blood
Bury my body at the edge of the coast
Let the water below me usher out my soul
Though you may never see my face like before
At least I know your pain won't linger anymore

Out in the darkness the fire in their eyes
Illuminate the forest in a way I've never seen it shine
If there's a God in heaven
Though I still have my doubts
I'd beg to them to never let that light get out

I could never be what it was you need
And it was the death of me

They buried my body at the cemetery gates
So my life and my love could understand my fate
You still hold your honor in this whole that you had dug
Though I know that you are standing right above

I could never be what it was you need
And it was the death of me
Track Name: Doing My Time
Everything is fine
I've been doing my time
Just wasting away
If everything was cruel
Then I'd want to be with you, so
Can I come stay?

The clock is on the floor
I can't see it anymore, so
I guess it's time
To take my time on the road
Where I'm heading on down
To the end of the line

Where it's the same mistake
That I had made again
So I wait for it
All to come again

Don't you call me on the phone
I just want to be alone now
For a little while
It's not that I don't care
It's that you are not here and
That is alright

And it's the same mistake
That I had made again
So I wait for it
All to come again

If this is all that I have come to offer
To the both of us
Then I could say you'll make
It cold
Colder still
So you will have to freeze
Track Name: Rural Juror
Sleep that you don't need
Will promise the best things
But what does it bring?
I, once in a while, will consider your love
While it's mine

And I am scared
Because now I'm stuck at the bottom
And you're there
But you were well prepared

So, you've become a ghost
A ghost's just a memory you can't let go of
And I will try to consider your love
While it's mine

I am scared
Because now I'm stuck at the bottom
And you're there
But you were well prepared

It comes and goes
Like both of us
We were made to mold
Into one another
But now you're gone

Gone
You're gone
You were the best I'd come along
Track Name: The Sweet Sun's Warmth (Is Lost On Me)
The wind's blowing from the east
The sweet sun's warmth is lost on me
The world is moving further on
And it gets colder come the dawn

It feels like a mystery
The way you think is lost on me
I try a little but it all feels lost
I'll start it up again, as if I forgot that I've been singing to you

I try to let you know but you don't know when
I try to let you know but you don't know when to stop
Track Name: Way Out
Way out at sea
Are you waiting there for me?
Are you waiting
Because push came to shove, and now you want me to love you?
You want me

But I don't want to know
About all the little bits of sympathy you wrote

It came straight to me
As if thought up in a dream
It came to me
The thought, the idea, that if you're not sincere
What are you?

I don't want to know
About all the little bits of sympathy you wrote

Because I waste my time all the time

Down by the river where the willow goes to weep
I got to thinking
There was something missing when you didn't go with me
You're not with me
And I was always hoping, waiting, wishing you were right
But not like it's a problem
If you are a waste of all my time
I don't mind
Because I waste my time all the time
