I’m not sure of anything anymore And I’m not sure why no one is who they were Cause they’ve got time to kill And they’ve got blood to spill together But who are they to tell me right from wrong Hey hey hey whatcha’ runnin from man What’s your big idea You’re living your whole life asleep man What’s your big idea Lord knows that I’ve wished for nothings else And I won’t ask for anything for myself But they’ve got time to kill And they’ve got blood to spill together But I don’t think they’ll make it out alive Hey hey hey whatcha’ runnin from Cause time waits for no one It’s the rush you chase but never seem to find It’s the knife that slips itself into your side Can’t forget my thoughts and all my memories Of watching everyone fall right in front of me Tell me that I’ll change and prove to me I’m wrong And we end up the same Tell me that I’ll change Cause I’m not sure at all So why don’t you just tell me Hey hey hey wahtcha’ running from Cause time waits for no one It’s the rush you chase but never seem to find It’s the knife that slips itself into your side Time waits for no one And you’ll never get it back

Take everything that you own Throw it into the fire The rates will inherit what’s left They’ll decorate and remodel These rooms that were once Where we rested our heads Have crumbled and crashed to the ground We won’t sleep till the lights burn out Just stay (I won’t give up I won’t fall) We won’t leave till the roof caves in Just stay Knocked off the king from his throne Called a cheat and a liar It’s true but I’m much better dressed Fashioned pain from another These beds that were once Where we nurtured our young Have broken and bent from the love So the time will come Where you ask yourself “what have I done?” There’s a place in hell for your friends We are all doomed (we won’t give up we won’t fall)

I know how it ends From all of the scenes you told I know how it ends A tale of a life you stole I know how it ends I swear it will break you down I know how it ends I promise you’ll surely drown These are the days you wish you could redo Carry the weight of all that was untrue We are forever wanting more With out mistakes lit up for all to see Will it awake the person we should be We are forever wanting more I know how it ends So quick to just criticize I know how it ends Not willing to compromise You only give poor advice I know how it ends How much will you sacrifice So let’s start again and give it a chance Suppose that we are who we ought to be And let’s not forget all of the things That we said we would never be

Friend 03:07
What do I get for always being there You made cheap the hours I put in When you needed me When no one else seemed to care And it’s gone now You could’ve been so many better things Take a look at yourself or what’s left of it And if I needed you would you pretend to even care I’ve lost a friend I’ve had I’ve lost a friend I used to know And you’re gone to go be someone else To find it all out To di it yourself And you’re gone and I have nothing to show And I’ve lost a friend I used to know Tell me exactly what I want to hear Tell me it’s over and done with And we’ll sit back and laugh To put it all in the past And I want him back
5.
Quitting 03:18
You walk in, I ask to take your coat Your hands are shaking and you’re Freezing from the walk back home I know I shouldn’t try To bring you back once more “I can learn to speak up when I talk” I can learn to listen when you speak real low I know I shouldn’t try To bring you back once more This is it The final bow, the curtain call I studied all the lines I wrote Could never play the starring role This is it It’s time for me to bow my head And as I hear the crowd applaud I know that it’s for you instead

Hey Amy 03:48
Tell me, I know you can Cause I’ll wait until the end Amy, are you alone? Cause I can’t find you now Help me, I know you can Cause I have no one else Was there nothing left? This house was such as mess The streets I knew went down the drain Amy, did you survive? Could you stand up and fight? Tell me, which way to go Cause you’re all that I know The kids won’t be raised in the places they played in The sky opened up and the damage is done so just go I’m on the edge of giving up It seems you finally ran out of luck You disappeared, can’t be found When the sky came falling down And it took everything we had And it threw it into the ocean (the rain came down, you drown in me)

Stranger 03:57
Planes and trains took you away Were never ending Chasing with no consequence Your new obsession You always went alone You never trusted anyone How far will you go to forget where you’re from Oh god I always felt like you were such a stranger And I know the farther you go I’ll need you closer Oh god I always felt like you were such a stranger From a tale of a life that I once called my own With the fear that you’d escape My contradiction Could this be a lesson learned or all for nothing Oh will I ever feel what I felt with anyone How far must I go to forget what I’ve done And you wonder how you’d ever fathomed how you would be content Would the places that you traveled to someday be filled with friends That you threw away back home and said you’d find them all again Would I just be just like them A replacement in the end

One Shot 02:26
He always found a way to make you say That it’s all your fault Brings you to your knees Watched you fall apart Dreaming of a life you could have lived All the things you wish you never did Is there time to make it right You’ve only got one shot You’ll never have to spend the night alone You’ve only got one I’m burying my face beneath the sheets Just to block it out The sound breaks through the walls And fills up the house When you said you’ve lost it all before Couldn’t pick yourself up off the floor Help me son, I need someone To share a life equal as one Till death shows up and says it’s done But what if you gave all your love To someone who would waste it up And on your knees you pray to have A life restart a better half And I’m the one you call for help but what if I am gone myself You’ve only got one shot You’ll never have to spend the night alone You’ve only got one You only need me

Kid 03:58
I broke in your room to see you fall to the floor Your eyes rolled back as you reached your hand to the door And I knew this place was not for me anymore This is it kid listen up it’s time you prove yourself So just hold on it’s all worth fighting for And I know she’s gone and I know you’re scared But I need you now so you’ve gotta just hold on It’s all worth fighting for Years will slip away if you just let them go by You have to hit rock bottom before you open your eyes And I hate to see you like this I need you on my side Walk away my friend it’s not too late to make amends oh no Just to try to comprehend she’d rather be all alone than pretend This is it kid listen up it’s time you walk this plank So untie the rope around your back before you fall in way too deep
10.
Show Me 02:44
Now you’ve got me Tied all up in knots Telling me all the stories that I hoped you once forgot Can we pretend Try and make believe That the error of my ways will stay with me and won’t repeat I have my doubts Guess you’ll never know Show me what you can do How long will I wait to decide Show me what you can do I wasn’t worth it anyway There’s this metal key Hanging around my neck And it hasn’t moved an inch since the day before you left I say I can But you know I won’t Is the one I gave to you still show up when you come undone I have my doubts Guess I’ll never know I wasn’t worth it anyway “if I’m the one will you decide?”

Molly's Desk 03:50
We sit home and speak Of a god we’ve never seen And wonder if he Watches when we sleep Or when I looked on molly’s desk And copied her whole sheet And oh I know I’m young To speak with such disdain An urgency So this is my confession I hope you listen Will Saint Christopher bring me to my destination And bring us all back home Am I alive I almost feel it Riding the waves of all my demons I’ll drift away We dressed all in black Momma wears her makeup dark And talks so softly “son one day you’ll learn that everyone you know will leave never to return” And oh a man so young Taken way too soon From all he loved So this is my intention To break tradition Could I give you myself to bring him back this instant And bring us all back home Watched you fight with the darkness But you just couldn’t win Once so strong, full of power Now fragile and thin I’ll bring you back, oh I swear I can figure this out I know many have tried But I won’t let you down I’m not afraid of the man I read about in the books The one that takes you away If you end it too soon I’ll turn the darkness on me I’ll travel up through the wind And if they don’t open the gates I’ll break my way in
12.
Suppose I’ve fallen to the point of no return Would it mend by telling everyone I know what I’ve learned Lost perception from all directions Take this as my last confession Are my hands too weak To break the ties you make One day you’ll see It’s the choice you make Ties you make One day you’ll see That all the moves we make Are in the dark Suppose that all the words I wrote were all for you Would it mend by telling everyone you know That it was true Lost connection from all intention Take this as my last confession You’re searching for truth And it will fail you again
