Track Name: Violet
So sad I could die, uncertain calm - I'll close my eyes
Too cold to remain, distract me
so I don't lose my patience again.

And I've made this bed, but cannot rest yet
can't forget everything - all for naught it seems.

Hollow beneath this finery.

Bad mistake - I could shift all of my weight
and still nothing would change, so call it ignorance.

And it's my mistake - I kept this all in my brain.
See in violet bouquets, and still nothing has changed.

Mirror reflects my contented, immature directive
and I'm stuck biting my own cheek
My father warned me.

That I'd made this bed, but cannot rest yet.
can't forget everything - all for naught it seems.

Bad mistake - I could shift all of my weight
and still nothing would change, so call it ignorance.

And it's my mistake - I kept this all in my brain.
See in violet bouquets, and still nothing has changed.

Such and honest mistake, I swear I'm gonna be okay.
(lately I've not quite been myself, practice leads to better health.)
Track Name: Bored
Stuck in the midst of this media flashflood,
my generation bleeds out their everything.

(On my own)
And our every opinion shows,
like daggers beneath our clothes.

(On my own)
And I'm done wasting words to fit
your irrelevant sense of accomplishment.

So what you really mean is - take everything that I see
with a grain of salt, before it might affect me
Still hard to see this as interaction - two divided by one.
When did this all become so weak.

Hard to fake indifference anyway

When you call I'll answer honestly.

(And all I know) is that place on my own,
and it's taken (all I have) just to find something better.

I'm so bored

Things just aren't the same, and I'm seeing shades of grey -
but if you call I swear I'll answer honestly - and it's safe to say that "time heals nothing".
I'll answer honestly.
Track Name: Konoha
Still routed by the things that I have come to fight.
And irate at feelings that I'd never thought were right.
I've learned, save my breath til I am heard -
only one thing that I know for sure.

It's all about you

Still routed by the things that I have come to fight.
Wrap them up, the awful thoughts that wake you in the night -
don't hide your face from light of day, it's keeping me right -
and you're always right.

And yet all I can say is "don't fade away"

It's all the same, and I'd follow you home.
And if it's all the same I'd follow.

And if it's all the same I'd follow you home
And it's all the same - and I follow.

It's all about you
Track Name: Callous
I never thought this through - could I be the one who'd fractured you?
Or am I colder, because somewhere on the inside
it's still there - an unrelenting edge
to make me wish that I were bled to the bone
and I know it's too much to face this alone.

And for a minute I'm lost and devoured in thought,
could the cause outweigh the cost?
Irrational and dark, my hearts too weak to leave a mark at all.

(stand up and face the world or - dissolve into the floor)

And lately I haven't been quite alright
Intent lies beneath lines that I play over again in my mind.
Almost certain that nothing would change
My repeat mistake, and we've fallen again
(all over again)

If we were trading places I'd rather face hell,
than tread in blind steps to your every appeal.

And if the shoe fit, I'd surely wear it -
but it won't and this is not your fairytale.
Track Name: Five years
Five years from now
and she's permanent on my mind.
A splinter in my gut to form a great divide.
I'm absent, defiant, as she sits there in silence
it's lonely decay, my only escape in time.

And it just won't end (x3)

I'm broken, drifting out at sea
and I think I've lost something inside of me.

Ten years from now,
and I'm all that's left by her side
self-consciously determined by our wasted time.
I'm fucked up and fragile,
this consistent battle is breaking my will,
her eyes never leave me still.

And it just won't end (x3)

I'm absent, defiant, as she sits there in silence -
it's lonely decay, my only escape in time.

Her bright eyes glow - bright eyes show.
