Track Name: Glasgow Smile
We sit so patiently
Our heads are pointed to the floor
I cut your mouth wide
These scars will make you smile
So you can't fake it anymore
Pull this car over, we could drive this road forever
But I don't think I'll make it any farther
I can see how this will end
We sit so patiently
Our heads are pointed to the floor
I cut your mouth wide
These scars will make you smile
So you can't fake it anymore
The sirens are singing
I can hear the hell they're bringing
Yet, we keep on driving the nail into this coffin
I can see how this will end
The truth can be so ugly so lie to me and tell me that you love me
And I'll reply "nothing's ever going to work out"
Wait, wait, I think I sense a crash
Put my teeth on the dash
Because I need to taste this mess
I need to taste this mess
Nothing's ever going to work out
Track Name: Anywhere But Here
Covered in the night, the streets are winding
They invite us in tonight
This empty town, it's crooked spines
How did we get where we are?
How did we let this get so far?
I wept as these ghosts passed right through me
I must be running on empty
Devoured by the night, with it's twisting smiles
Its twisting smiles emerging in the light
And when my heart stops and my eyes close
Who remembers me? Who loses sleep?
And who decides where my body goes?
It's all I see, it's haunting me
The fragile pieces of a memory
The dust and fragments that my spirit weaves
Have brought me back to the same road
Where once we lost control
I open up my eyes and breathe before I go
This is no dream, it's everything
And when my heart stops and my eyes close
Who remembers me? Who loses sleep?
And who decides where my body goes?
It's all I see, it's haunting me
Track Name: In Waves
It comes in waves, written on my face
I'm not all there
I'm nowhere near where I should be
Life comes up from behind
And strikes at the back of my knees
I stumble, I'm nowhere near
I fear the day when it all falls in place
I'm unprepared
I'm nowhere near where I should be
Life comes up from behind
And strikes at the back of my knees
I stumble, I'm nowhere near
I can't pick up the pieces of what is left
Or let go of the things I should forget
This is the end of who I am:
A broken, bitter man
I could hang my head in defeat
Admit the worst got the best of me
Where I should be
Life comes up from behind
And strikes at the back of my knees
I stumble, I'm nowhere near
can't pick up the pieces of what is left
Or let go of the things I should forget
This is the end of who I am:
A broken, bitter man
I could hang my head in defeat
Admit the worst got the best of me
Track Name: Sink or Swim
I am slipping
I am sinking in
Opens up and swallows me whole
No one's listening
No one hears a thing
Pulled down by the undertow
We sink like a stone in the end
Track Name: You Only Die Once
They are the heaving lung
Punctured, missing out on something
The ring has lost its hold
The honeymoon is over
Lovers lip-locked with no boundaries
Fifteen years under lock and key
All they need is a little suffering
Something unforgettable, or mildly regrettable
And if the feelings reside to deep
They'll give up and say they tried it all
We are the heaving lung
Underneath the wreck
Sadly, we'll fail before we take a new breath
We just want to stay forever young
With no regard for anyone
Care enough not to care at all
All they need is a little suffering
Something unforgettable, or mildly regrettable
And if the feelings reside to deep
They'll give up and say they tried it all
Track Name: The Anchor Around My Neck
The sound of everyone feeling something before I became the plague
And I lost everyone around me and everything came falling down
Pushed my fingers in my ears until they met
Sink deeper in this black tide everyday
(The noise is so deafening)
So now that I can't hear it's like it never left (me alone)
Close my eyes and let these waves carry me away
I give in, I give all of myself
I am no more, and I have nothing left to
Breathe in deep
It's like my lungs are full of lead
It's pinning my down to this oceans bed
And now it's like everything's falling down on me
And the weight on my chest builds and builds
It never ends
I give in, I give all of myself
I am no more, and I have nothing left to
I'll drift off without a second thought, without qualms
I'll give it all away like I had before
And I'm cold deep in my core
Turn my back leave no expression
Though footsteps leave a deep depression
Washed away by high tide
And it feels just right while I lie
I give in, I give all of myself
I am no more, and I have nothing left
Track Name: Black Tide
Instrumental
Track Name: Corpse Paint
We were invincible
We were the flames that warmed the limbs of the man that got caught in the grip of winters hands
Grinding my fists into the wall
I should be loosening your teeth
Shame on us you fooled us all
I have lost control
And it's all coming to a screeching halt
We're head over heels, gripping the steering wheel
The glass, it stings as windows combust around me
Bit clean through my tongue
Spit out a slew of words that would make no sense
Laid face down in it
I'm a mess
I can't tell you how beautiful this was
How I enjoyed the time spent, I'd sooner wire my jaw shut
I have lost control
And it's all coming to a screeching halt
We're head over heels, gripping the steering wheel
The glass, it stings as windows combust around me
I spill, I pour out everything
So all the world can see how full of shit everyone can be
And I, I'm not the man I thought I was
A horde of insecurities and bad choices buried in my bones and blood
It's on the tip of my tongue, all the truths we share
Secrets to bear, an opus left unsung
Nothing's ever going to work out
