Enemies

[No lyrics]

. . .


So long I'll be gone
By the time you read this, the damage is done
Cut this up or swallow it whole
I tell you nothing with words alone
I tried to find a simple way to make my escape
Now that I've found it, I feel so low
Turn away we're not ready
We come down this moment ends
In this haze the sun was setting plastic and fake
You still let me down
Lie to me 'cause I like to hear
"we'll always stay the same you are safe my dear"
I tried to separate reality from dreams
And ended up somewhere in between
We face the sky our backs against the ground
Let the light erase this
There is no other way out
Let the light erase this

. . .


Hello beautiful I've been waiting for you
In the wrong place at the wrong time
Please just stop me because
I'm not trying to give you the story of my life
And I apologize for every word I've made you listen to
This is the last time I make you suffer
And I promise that you'll never hear another word from me

(Did we pass by?)
Feel like I've seen a thousand faces
(On my way down)
But can't recall a single one
(Here's finding out)
My blood will decorate your pavement
As soon as my body hits the ground

I doubt I can live vicariously through
The sounds of my stereo consuming
And reluctant to meet my ears
The cord wrapped tight around my neck
Helps forget about what's left
Just the anticipation cuts off my circulation
This is the first time that we are lovers
And this is the last time
That you'll hear another word from me

[Chorus]
My bleeding begins you won't erase this
You're way too late
Here's finding the reason that I made this mess
It's way too late

. . .


So this is the way we say thank you for staying so close
To my side for all these years
I've watched you slip as we grow old
And the walls are stained with memories to each his own
My favorite is the time I held you
Off the edge then let go
Don't close your eyes and everything will be just fine
You carry disease, I carry the only remedy
And once you ingest the side effects are permanent
This is how they found you
The same way that I left you
Your body holds the evidence
The obvious is put on display again
Actions have spoken loud, words have begun to fail
You never gave a thought to help
So help yourself, I know you will
And you're very proud I envy your seasoned skill
A scratch of the surface seemed so small
But take a look what's revealed
Just close your eyes
And I will make everything alright

. . .

Constellations

[No lyrics]

. . .


This quiet room turns black
The smoke it fills my lungs and I can barely breathe
Watching it all go down in flames
I might as well go too and I can barely breathe
All this time hurt by my own defeat
Replay it all then throw away
It's all that I know
Days away these ties unwind and break
Things won't be like they used to be just let me go
Can't find my own way down
As this seventh story burns so won't you carry me
I wish that I could be more like you
Safe on the ground below
But I know that I'll end up underneath
[Chorus]
Always I've waited for this day
I'll wait too long so let me go
You're safe right where you landed
I'm taking chances on my own

. . .


It's been a long time
But not long enough for me to rest
And I don't want you to know what I've been thinking of
And if I told you
I don't think you'd want to hear from me again
Didn't mean to hurt you this is just the way it is
Go on and I'll meet you there
And now I'm just telling lies over and over again
Well I tried to scream couldn't make a sound
Seems like weeks and weeks since I left this town
I woke up in a different place
Different sight and indifferent state of mind
I'll hide behind another song
That tells you the same old story
And fake a smile with a drink
I think I told you about the time
When the tiny stick would break the stone
You didn't seem to understand it
I don't think I even know
And I know you don't want to hear it
No one's ever satisfied
Over and over again

. . .


Well summer's in my head again
I've been lying in this bed for days on end
Don't talk to me just let me sleep
I had that dream this week
Where everything goes wrong, let me take you there
Trace the patterns and repeat
I'm left with what was underneath no heart it's useless
You've heard the song so let's move along
And everywhere we go
Everything goes wrong, let me take you there
You won't believe all the colors that dance
Inside the flame
You won't believe how these walls cave in
Fall down and light me up again
Here's to the holiday and the life that we leave
We never got to say goodbye I'm sorry
And they will gather around when the sirens ring out
The celebration's moved on to a better place
If there's something to talk about can it wait
I can't talk right now
Moving backwards, what happened last year?
I can't tell you been wasted for too long

. . .

Steps

[No lyrics]

. . .


Lost in a world found in a place
Moving too fast to see your grace
I've got the mallet and here's the spike
Help me now drive it as deep as you like
It breaks me up inside but helps to remind me
Just exactly what it feels like
Trapped in a world running this race
Can't tell if I'm moving or staying in place
Maybe another time another day I'll see you again
I've see another sign that this will fade
All things come to an end
Standing alone but standing beside thoughts
That are shouting too
Watching the world a distant gaze
Can't tell if it's moving or staying in place
[Chorus]
Sorry for wasting all your time
Still won't forget what's left behind
Sometimes I wonder where you are
And some things I'd like to disregard
Sorry for wasting all your time
I can't be everything you'd like
Sometimes I wonder where you are
How did we get so far apart
