Track Name: Old Light
There's solace in the parking lot
Smoke drifting from my fingers up over the moon
Inhale, exhale, let go
That summer I learned to roll my own
Taking all the punches like a pro
And all of this time the distance wasn't nearly enough
The old bed was miles deep
The first signs came in your sleep, in your shallow breath

Inhale, exhale, let go

Never been much of a smoker but sometimes you try
Push harder, further
And all of our plans are hopes at best
Let it go
My feet ankle deep, it's warmer than all year
And all of our plans were hopes right here.
We used to live here when the sun was still young but now there's just old light that takes forever to reach our eyes.

Mark the spot where you lost your way, trace the steps, recall the words
Let the echoes guide you back
The waters used to flow higher here
Track Name: Keep Your Kings In The Back Row
Is this something that you started to regret?
See our world through distorted eyes, we keep telling different sides of the same lie
I can't love you any better than this and if your dreams go to waste tonight you'll give me the saddest smile, take this with you
Oh you gotta take this with you, you should know by now

You are so afraid of life and I only have courage for myself
I cannot carry you through this
I'm not the savior you're searching for so close the door
You're letting the cold in

Are we something that you started to regret?
This time the strong follows the strong, this time I need someone brave I'm not your shelter from the storm.
Am I something that you started to regret?
At least I told you from the start that I was not prepared to handle a heart

You are so afraid of life and I only have courage for myself
I cannot carry you through this
I'm not the savior you're searching for so close the door
You're letting the cold in
Track Name: White Waves
Tie me up or step on my hands, force me to be calm
The panic room is crowded enough
It's been a while since I came home and cried along to a song
I don't want anything, don't feel anything, my heart's breaking into tin foil pieces.

The story is not written, there's nobody waiting, so easy to screw it all up
Repeating a pattern you saw in a movie, pretending like the rest of them Aren't you tired of hurting?

All the time I feel so lost but in this I am not alone
I guess that this is the status quo, get used to it or get lost
There's no way out of the wilderness, you can't just peek your head in
It will hunt you down, it will chew you up, it will swallow you
So say thank you

The story is not written, there's nobody waiting, so easy to screw it all up
Repeating a pattern you saw in a movie, pretending like the best of them
Aren't you tired of hurting?
I'm so tired of hurting

Lost carelessness turns to mental illness, when the summer's gone and we're growing old
There's no safety net, I am losing this bet, I can't be in control
We bitch and we whine until the end of our time, it's our generation's code or so I'm being told
Lost carelessness turns to mental illness, don't make me lose control
