Track Name: Hello
Where do we go, don't we know
And what do we say to each other
Hello, how are you
Do you feel the same as I do
And we're both just pushing ahead and getting by

So where were you, when you heard
The world is changing and it's mad
Run away, I can feel you getting close
It's God damn hard to listen all the time
Hello how are
Do you feel the same as I do
And we're both just pushing ahead and getting by
Yeah, we're both just pushing ahead and getting by
Track Name: Time
How many of us need to die
before we're satisfied
before theres families in chains
And how much larger can we grow

Time

We're just carbon exploding, beings devoted to time
And we're rewriting history, all of theses fallacies

Time

Oh dear god we'll never know
By spilling blood to learn
Forgetting all to squash the fear
We're falling tribute to ourselves

Time

We're just carbon exploding, beings devoted to time
And we're rewriting history, all of theses fallacies

Time
Track Name: No Guts No Glory
Burning from the inside
trying so hard to speak
lips and eyes sown up tight
doing anything to talk or say

My sweet epiphany, a bright idea that came to me
Useless for all these years, dead motives and memories
this time it feels so right to fight

Try to write down every chapter to tell my story
Rip out my insides and hold em up high
no guts no glory

On my mind night and day
I've got a claim to stake
give up on my dreams
i'd rather lift my head and scream

my sweet epiphany, a bright idea that came to me
it's all i ever wanted
My god its been so long
to feel the air blow through me
to feel the wind beat down me but now I'm back where i began
Will i actually, I'm one step further
And one heartbeat closer, to feel the love pour out of me

The air pulls out of me
The air pulls out of me

Try to write down every chapter to tell my story
Rip out my insides and hold em up high
no guts no glory
Track Name: The Prairie
What a stretch we ride through the underpass, and over the rumble
Avoiding the chaos that sings to me
a rhythm calling me, a weight i can't explain
that pulls me east, then pulls me west

One picture to remind myself
one snapshot of our lives
A moment when the trying past
lost its grip on me
and you were perfect

What a stretch we ride
out of the humanities that rise around me
and slowly are drowned out by the,
by the hustle and the constant race
Just slow down, lift your head, try and listen to the wind
that pulls me east then pulls me west

One picture to remind myself
one snapshot of our lives
A moment when the trying past
lost its grip on me
and you were perfect

it was just nice to meet you no use for goodbye
our encounter was brief yet kind
blow your kiss and walk away, smile back and wave
watch the lest step, one will make you fall

make you fall
Track Name: In The End
Around 70 kilometers
Maintain A free of mind
Flybys on the left, avoid the 5 and take the 1 straight by
Beneath the bevels of hell's gate
the watching eyes of precaution
this is one of the three
everything is falling

And when there's nothing even left of you
when there's nothing even left of me
when there's nothing even left
of the two of us, what can we do

Around 90 kilometers
winding back and forth
stretching through the canyon
hell's gate is the only way
when crud covers the path and
the peaks fail to relieve
formations melt away
the steaming sound of engines

And when there's nothing even left of you
when there's nothing even left of me
when there's nothing even left
of the two of us, what can we do
Track Name: Bury My Baby
The fog rolls in and comes alive
we'll try to run but cannot hide
the darkness knows my every move
we'll have to stay and try to fight
and not get swallowed by the night
I Pray that mornings coming soon

I buried my baby tonight
it was a terrible sight
her eyes melt away
and all i see is evil screaming
at me, so i close my eyes
put a hole where her body lies
I pray for the lord
oh my god i must be dreaming

They took my love
left me for dead
give her back to me
take me instead

Outside the trees begin to sway
the darkness takes my breathe away
I swear i hear my baby's call
The voice sends shivers down my spine
we must be running out of time
and might not make it after all

I buried my baby tonight
it was a terrible sight
her eyes melt away
and all i see is evil screaming
at me, so i close my eyes
put a hole where her body lies
I pray for the lord
oh my god i must be dreaming

They took my love
left me for dead
give her back to me
take me instead
Track Name: Neon Lights
A couple more hours and I've got to be packed to go
The hardest damn part of the day is to say goodbye
I didn't even know my world had been destroyed
Until I kissed you grab my things and sauntered by

And the skies change color before my eyes
anxiety is running high
rolling hills through the Spanish peaks
a swirling western wind, sings us both to sleep

come on baby let me know just where you are tonight
It's been over two weeks and I'm going out of my mind

Woke up late to stay up all night
It was the only way to make it back to you on time
cross the Georgia border and my worries went away
it shouldn't be much more than another day

Around Gatlinburg things got real cold
the back of the hill snow started to fall
Everything was closed all the roads were dead
I found a small motel at the end of the bend

come on baby let me know just where you are tonight
It's been over two weeks and I'm going out of my mind

The empty space was no longer space
the infinite void was no longer void

The neon lights kept glowing
all through the night
blankets draped on me
they couldn't hold out cold and couldn't hold out light

Neon lights kept glowing
all though the night
and on the radio only white noise

got out in Illinois and the water began to freeze
crossed the river bridge so close to home
around the 120 attention began to fade
we'll get it up to 88 and well get away

down past the winding terraces
and out of the dream
right by the local market and the bungalows
They're all asleep
Track Name: The Old Victorian
Pouring everything we had into Holland
and watching it slip away
The long nights and long hours spent at
the plot at the end of the square
and the tree that sprawled out overhead
to look back they were some of the best
moments that we shared

You did the best that you could despite all that you had to bare
And I know you strived
to make our lives better than yours
yeah I know you tried

Not long after my tenth the family changed
we didn't understand just why things changed
But I remember the trail past the arboretum
and things became intense
At no fault of our own

Just like the Old Victorian, we spend long hours alone
And now I understand the drives, I understand
exactly where the psychosis came from
and the triggers that laden the eighties
that laden the eighties

the ones that let you down and the undue stress caused by those who lie
even with the disappointments you never stopped for us all
You did the best that you could despite all that you had to bare
And I know you strived, To make our lives better than yours
Track Name: Laugh Before You Cry
why fall apart, when everything is beautiful
love so much it causes pain
you care so much you're drowning
to guide or to write what you're thinking
to guide or to write to convey

you are great you are immense
and one day it will all be clear
paralyzed by consequence
come to terms with infinity

oh so dim, The future is bright!
Patience, the struggle inside us all
your walls have peaked
its all flat from here
its all flat from here

you are great you are immense
and one day it will all be clear
paralyzed by consequence
come to terms with infinity

Don't set on triumph,and forget your love
prophetic life haunts you cling to the words
the words, the lights, the dream, the meaning!
Track Name: Our Time
Our time is running low, Our time is running out
we'll never get back what we lost
Your breathe is so damn slow, your breathe is running out
we'll never get back what we loved

I can feel you quickening, I can feel my heart rate soar
we'll never get back what we lost
You can't control it all, you can't control it all
we'll never get what we loved

sometimes you feel alone inside
often you'll wonder where you've been
you're not alone in this
your heart can handle this
this helplessness will fade with time

We all have limits we ignore
We all have moments when we cry
We all have hopes and dreams
Fears and insecurities
this helplessness will fade with time

Our time is running low, Our time is running out
we'll never get back what we lost
Your breathe is so damn slow, your breathe is running out
and we've got nothing left to say
