    It All Comes Down

    VERSE

    Crawling out, insecure
    Same as always before

    Never again
    You push me, pull me in
    Never - watch me fall,
    Then you withdraw
    Take me and
    Break me down

    CHORUS
    Then it all comes down
    Down around me
    You see me drown
    But you won't save me
    There's no way out
    Am I just wasting time?

    VERSE
    All I ask, so denied
    Eat my shame, open wide

    Never again
    You don't know who I am
    Never - watch me fall,
    Then you withdraw
    Take me and
    Break me down

    BRIDGE

    No way out

  • 04:06 Lyrics
    Dead to You

    CHORUS

    Dead to you, I'm inconsequential
    Dirt underneath your feet
    Then to you I should feel so grateful
    Your gift of apathy

    VERSE

    Watch you shifting
    Listless, alibi
    My friend of convenience - you.
    Now you're with me
    Right here by my side
    So concerned when opportune

    Neverending
    You proselytize
    Nothing but good things from you
    Thanks for lying
    Won't you let me show you
    My eternal gratitude

    Hesitate

    VERSE

    Take another piece of me
    I'll give in to anything
    And this silence draws me near
    I can find some comfort here

    PRE-CHORUS

    Unravel me
    Unravel me

    CHORUS

    Things in me just go away
    I chase them down but it's too late
    Hesitating where to start
    Things in me just fall apart

    VERSE

    Everything you choose to be
    Why can't you be there for me?
    And my reasoning to leave:
    Everyone and everything.

  • 02:44 Lyrics
    Wash Away

    VERSE

    I'm bored with
    this incessant twisting
    of words into what you
    want them to say
    Your hands clean of shame

    CHORUS

    Something to be said about
    You think that you can close your eyes
    and this will wash away
    Digging deeper down you'll find
    Your lies
    Your lies

    VERSE

    Had enough
    Tired of giving up
    Leaves me numb and restless
    Done with your charade
    Offer false hope of change

    BRIDGE

    "Count on me"

    FINAL CHORUS

    Something to be sad about
    The way that you can use me
    then you push me to the side
    Something to forget about
    You think that you can close your eyes
    And wash this all away
    Digging deeper down you'll find
    Your lies
    Your lies

    See Through

    VERSE

    A casualty of consequence
    Leaves me different than I am
    A tragegy, an accident
    Leaves me broken where I stand
    But underneath this circumstance
    Is there a reason to believe?
    When everything becomes regrets
    This is all that I can be

    PRE-CHORUS
    Wish that I could find a way to explain the things in me
    Wish that I could be so simple, same, and surface deep

    CHORUS

    Wish that I was see through
    Like you
    Like you

    VERSE

    A casualty of innocence
    You only see what you believe
    An empty vote of confidence
    And everything is as it seems
    But underneath this circumstance
    Is there a reason to believe?
    No such thing as second chance
    This is all I'm offering

  • 05:20 Lyrics
    Drive it Away

    VERSE

    Wait for your response
    Nothing's really there
    Heavy-lidded eyes
    Half interested stare
    Nothing left to fake
    I've given all I can
    Turn and fall apart
    Ffall into your hands

    CHORUS

    I'll drive it away
    Nothing to say, you win
    Hiding away
    I try, in vain

    VERSE

    Trying to relate
    I get so confused
    A broken mirror smile
    A fractured point of view
    All these things inside
    I can't seem to say
    Hold me where I stand
    Standing in my way

    All these things inside
    I can't seem to say
    Hold me where I stand
    Did I misplace you?

  • 04:45 Lyrics
    Give Up A Little

    VERSE

    Touch
    Of your hand
    I've become
    Less than I had planned
    Hungry for
    Something more
    To feel whole again

    CHORUS

    Why can't this be simple?
    Why's it always been this way?
    Wading through the trivial
    Just to stay in the same place
    Slowly being crippled
    Just to keep up with the pace
    I give up a little
    Give a little more each day

    VERSE

    Crutch
    I need something
    To numb me through
    Each day's tedium
    Want to find
    Peace of mind
    In this cold seclusion

    BRIDGE

    Why can't this be
    something to reflect on?
    Crushed underneath
    These unanswered questions

  • 05:46 Lyrics
    Hiding Underneath

    VERSE

    Hiding underneath
    These masks we wear are only surface deep
    They cage us in, become what we believe

    CHORUS

    So fill me up with all your waste
    And feed me more than I can take
    Hold me down, you can't break free
    Hold me down, in spite of me

    VERSE

    Hiding underneath
    These words we say are fake and counterfeit
    They pull us down, become a part of it

  • 06:40 Lyrics
    So Incomplete

    VERSE

    It makes me feel
    so incomplete
    It seems unreal
    in front of me

    Faltering
    Surface strong
    Inside alone
    Alone

    CHORUS

    All these circumstances
    Are taking parts of me away
    And all these positions
    I don't know what is left to say
    All of these devices
    I'm tired of feeling out of place
    Is anyone else wanting
    Does anybody feel the same
    Feel the same

    VERSE

    I'm different than
    I used to be
    Is something gone
    A piece missing

    Inside of me
    Faltering
    Surface strong
    Inside alone
    Alone

  • 06:13 Lyrics
    Fade

    VERSE

    Coping, but it's open
    And it feels like it won't heal:
    This place I kept for you.
    Wish I could just rewind
    I would give away my years,
    For another with you

    PRE-CHORUS

    But I don't belong,
    I turn and run
    Away from how I feel
    I wish you were here.
    I wish you were here.
    And it all goes wrong,
    I'm not so strong,
    Without you it's not clear.
    I wish you were here.
    I wish you were here.
    I wish you were here.
    I wish you were here.

    CHORUS

    But you fade away
    Just a little more each day
    It's so sad to say
    You're a name without a face

    VERSE

    Staying, but it's paling
    Just to weather every year
    Being here without you.
    All my seasons blow by
    Just a backdrop to my tears.
    Cold and sad without you.

    Portrait of You

    VERSE

    You just pretend everything's
    Alright
    Alright
    You can't accept what you see
    Don't cry
    Don't cry

    PRE-CHORUS

    You put your face behind your hands
    To hide the view
    You put your face inside your hands
    And then it's through

    CHORUS

    Is this a portrait of you?

    VERSE

    Sighing as you see each day
    Go by
    Go by
    Not enough strength left to say
    Goodbye
    Goodbye
