Track Name: Get Louder
Good-bye dream.
You were never that kind to me.
It's alright just leave me here.
Good-bye energy.
I'm finding it hard to speak.
I can't feel anything beneath.

Oh faith get louder.
Hate gets louder.
Faith get louder please.
Oh faith get louder.
Hate gets louder.
Faith get louder in something.

Good-bye belief.
We never really did agree.
You always hid yourself in the boonies.
Good-bye Repete.
You never did feel complete.
You run in place inside this hard freeze.

Oh faith get louder.
Hate gets louder.
Faith get louder please.
Oh faith get louder.
Hate gets louder.
Faith get louder in something.

Sights with no shape and sounds with no cheer.
A sinking sun has now become an illustrious career.
Track Name: Sunken Dream
Over sober.
In delay.
For another day.
Out of order.
It's not OK.
So slightly out of place.
It's not OK.
Just can't let it be.

What's it gonna be against my cheek?
A fist or your lips.
Are you leaving me?

In the corner.
I can't shake.
You still remain.
Back for yourself.
Found your way.
And you're shining again.
Found your way.
Now I'm sinking.

I hope this helps you breathe and helps you see.
A switch and a shift brings you back to me.

I hope I don't replace you with a broken memory.
Lately I've been living like a sunken dream.
Track Name: Climb Down
Specialized.
Personalized.
Yeah you're the only one of your kind.
Did the circus finally get to you?
Did they find you a home in the zoo?
You've not been touched for sometime.

Alone atop your cloud.
Climb down for now.

Hypnotized.
Victimized.
It never seems quite right.
There's this boy who wants to be forgiven.
A girl that wants to keep on living in her stormy skies.

Alone atop your cloud.
Climb down for now.
Track Name: Sin Slower Than Them
Dresser drawers emptied out on to the floor.
Am I stability or am I just decor?
Knocked down the same old doors.
Rebulit them all without force.
Is this reassembly?
It does not feel like before.
When my head was clearer and did not fear pedestrians.

You just sin slower than them.

Storage spaces for all these overflowing places.
Cut, copy, and paste all day.
Want something of my own to say.
Sinking faces always measuring disgraces.
CEO's stop being a-holes.
Cut those zeros on your pay stubs.
But when was my last selfless stint?
The scale tips slightly higher when

You just sin slower than them.
Track Name: Staggered
Doors shut tight.
Somethings going on for sure.
Hair pulled back.
Shreds of leaving crowd the floor.

I'm not out.
But I've been staggered.
Every time I'm staggered.

You've crossed lines.
I never thought you were capable.
Mouth spits lies.
An absentee to all you know.

I'm not out.
But I've been staggered.
Every time I meet your eyes.
Meet your eyes.
Daggers.
Meet your eyes.
Staggered.
Track Name: Forgotten And New
Where are you?
The wrong cue.
The wrong camera.
It makes mistakes.
Catches you in poses untrue.

I am through being bitter.
I heard you're feeling better.
That's good.
Timing was such a champion for you.

Proud fathers of expecting daughters.
New mothers and jealous afterthoughts.

So where are you?
Are you true?
Were you damaged in it's wake?
Did the break leave an instant forgotten and new?
Track Name: Still Slight Slow
Put up some pictures I'm pretty sure somebody lives here.
Turn up the furnace.
A shivering occurance.
Cold from fear.

Licking pots.
Bagging sand.
Whatever you've got on hand.
The wood it rots.
Paint expands.
Smells like smoke and.

It's on fire but I'm laughing laughing Laughing.
Strange desire but I'm dancing dancing dancing.

It's on fire but I'm laughing laughing Laughing.
Strange desire but I'm dancing dancing dancing.
The faucets wide open.
As fast as it goes.
Still slight slow.
Track Name: Coming Up True
Once had a fall.
Short one I thought.
I was down longer than I knew.
The finishing line had not been crossed.
There's years of regret to sort through.

Smells and the sounds becoming rewound.
It's all coming back to you.
No poison to put your hands on now.
It's all coming back to you.
It's all coming up true.

Here all the thing you need will apply.
It's all coming back to you.
The things that you chose struggled but survived.
It's all coming back to you.
It's all coming up true.

Strike up the band of ghosts and their crowns.
It's all coming back to you.
Gone and for good won't be turned around.
It's all coming back to you.
It's all coming back to you.
It's all coming back to you.
It's all coming up true.

Once had a fall.
Short one I thought.
I was down longer than I knew.
I was down longer than I knew.
Track Name: Late Late Nights
Good-bye to the late late nights.
I used to love so much one time.
They're gone but still in sight.
They burn strong but they're not mine.

Good-bye to my good good friends.
On which I used to depend.
They're gone but still in sight.
They burn strong but they're not mine.

Good-bye to my good good side.
That I used to follow around.
It's gone but still in sight.
Stick around it might come back.

Good-bye to you all I say.
Don't look for me cause I'll be back someday.
In my time.
But don't wait.
It might take a while.
