Goodbye 03:47
I was drawn by fear, so what’s that saying? Complicated face… take it either way Hey… don’t you want outta here? Hey… don’t you want outta here? Goodbye. When the carpet comes, I see you walk by Carry all your crowns; they love you tonight Hey… don’t you want outta here? Hey… don’t you need outta here? Goodbye. Oh, first you sense it… a lie. Oh, you repent it… you and I. I want you in a way I’m working to hide Not in-front of friends… just on the side. Hey… don’t you want outta here? Hey… best you get outta here! Goodbye. Oh, first you sense it… a lie. Oh, you repent it… you and I. So Goodbye. Goodbye.

Tell me there's no other world Show me there's no other girls And meet me in the next room Could you see it in my face? Leave him for me, just today I'll meet you in the next room Walk me over, take my hand And make a list of all the things that we won't say Just in case we don't feel this way again As your friends have grown to hate Please don't settle for what's safe Meet me in the next room Meet me in the next room Walk me over, take my hand And make a list of all the things that we won't say Just in case we don't feel this way again Meet me in the next room

Misbehave 03:17
Fight to the last bullshit claim Under-reveal, instigate Bet that I know, believe, I show what I want to Laughin' at you... well, shame on me Why not go out and misbehave? Why? No, nothing profound, just misbehave I, just like you, we do what we want to Misbehave Never deny the things you say They think what they want, anyway Bet that I know, believe, I say what I want to Laughin' at you... well, shame on me Why not go out and misbehave? Why? No, nothing profound, just misbehave I, just like you, we do what we want to Misbehave

In My Head 04:28
Lay your hands on my throat And watch me now lie again, try again Maybe someone should know Before we get high again, fly again Of a place where the teaching and preaching you see Don't come free Where our hands follow suit, as they trust in our eyes As I trust in my... In my head, as real as the fear In my head, as clear as stain-glass In my head, or is it better off left in my...? To paint the day, who am I? Just a single voice, and so I'll hide and let it slide And further down, damned we go And though we cry, no goodbyes For a time where the grays in the shades still remained We were sane Now I dance as my feet rush only to comply Should just trust in my... In my head, as real as the fear In my head, as clear as stain-glass In my head, or is it better off left in my...? How far we go, so far So far to go, how far? So far we go In my head, as real as the fear In my head, as clear as stain-glass In my head, but it's not what I see In my head, the dreams I believe In my head, these things I believe In my head... Or is it better off left in my...?

Mona Lisa 04:12
An ocean girl and a farm-bred boy Always facing two sides of the coin Ever strong, she would say: far too long to make up my mind But these shots taken in the dark won’t rearrange this time I know we tried Couldn’t change inside Every heart craves their Mona Lisa We did the best we could I’ll look back years from now, girl And I’ll know we were good A super-girl, a struggling boy Built on fate and time, say goodbye Ever strong, now your head hangs down. Saw it take shape in your eyes Cause across the street or a world away, we were living separate lives You know we tried Couldn’t change inside Every heart craves their Mona Lisa We did the best we could I’ll look back years from now, girl And I’ll know we were good Passing time, the shadows cast upon us Circumstance or distance, meant to wrong us Every heart craves their Mona Lisa We did the best we could I’ll look back years from now, girl And I’ll know we were good

Stone Throw 04:29
The girl out in the street A sight & sound for no one Envy at her feet, her own It's easy to be weak when life holds down Hey little girl When's the last time you looked your way? Do you see yourself? Your darkened eyes and your disguise When all you ever want It's just a stone throw away All these words discrete For onlookers, a sleepwalker Fashion of the day, her own It's easy not to see when life holds down Hey little girl When's the last time you looked your way? Do you see yourself? Your darkened eyes and your disguise When all you ever want It's just a stone throw away First you tear it out, then you'll need it in Cause you don't need those lies, you'll see Hey little girl When's the last time you looked your way? Do you see yourself? Your darkened eyes and your disguise When all you ever want It's just a stone throw away

All Around 04:13
Reading words, believe Every place there's different beings While others drown for all that we reap Cause we're unique It's all the same to me What to feel on this busy street A city's name don't change what you see All around Never on lost sight What they've wrong, that we've done right All the eyes taught how they should see Cause we're unique It's all the same to me What to feel on this busy street A city's name don't change what you see All around And all of us different, just to be different Kept in fine-print deals By statesmen aimed to steal It's not for them deciding for me Cause we're unique It's all the same to me What to feel on this busy street A city's name don't change what you see All around

Never Change 05:14
All the time we said where we'd meet someday Seems we're both behind the line Keeping track of days until they wander by Now I'm just running 'round, defined Meghan dreams an uphill climb, a rocky start She's still at it everyday Always wears her chin up to the world Tried to keep my head on straight You make me want to climb I almost lost how that felt inside Keeping time for old things that never change I've tried I don't know so much that really matters now I can't teach you a thing I'd just love to hear, I hope to hold on tight To everything she brings You make me want to climb I almost lost how that felt inside Keeping time for old things that never change I've tried And I've tried, but I let me down I'll try, but I let me down You make me want to climb I almost lost how that felt inside Keeping time for old things that never change I've tried

Try It Again 04:11
Say the wrong thing, I'm bound to say But I'll try it all over again I'd give you up for good, yeah, if I only could So I'll try it all over again So I turn to you and speak Unprepared, casual stare Whisper your shoulder turn to me And with each word, pretend I don't care So do you stand or fall away? What do I say? Say the wrong thing, I'm bound to say But I'll try it all over again I'd give you up for good, yeah, if I only could So I'll try it all over again We can't hide what we can't change The past repeats, times we fake Green inside, black and gray Postcards of the choice we make So do you stand or fold away? What do I say? Say the wrong thing, I'm bound to say But I'll try it all over again I'd give you up for good, yeah, if I only could So I'll try it all over again Gonna try it all over again

Evil Freedom 03:53
You make it all so easy Can't you see that I'm weak? You make me feel so needy Losing years in this sleep Oh my friend, all we risk just for this All that I need, just to live with it Evil Freedom Falling down, building up inside Say you understand what's on my mind The things we're told just for telling lies Wasting time I hear these strangers say they know what's best Well, it must be easier looking in Feeling more and more just like the rest Just a struggle to impress Oh my friend, all we risk just for this Took what I need, but I can't live with it Evil Freedom Falling down, building up inside Say you understand what's on my mind The things we're told just for telling lies Wasting time

Already Gone 04:48
She's lovely in her disguise She owns me, though she never tries She can't decide how she thinks she feels inside She knows me now, she thinks I know we've tried, but she can't decide Now, maybe she'll stay Now, she doesn't say What's the story now? Can you get it straight? When you dive inside and find you care I'm already gone from there A fiction thunders in my brain Predictions, today she's gonna look away She can't decide how she thinks she feels inside She knows me now, she thinks I know we've tried, but she can't decide Now, maybe she'll stay Now, she doesn't say So what's the story now? Can you get it straight? When you dive inside and find you care I'm already gone from there A t-shirt, I'm just another boy in line Still we flirt, but the blueprints have been left behind I'll decide how it's not gonna feel inside She knows me now, she thinks I know I tried, but she won't decide Now, maybe she'll stay Now, she doesn't say So what's the story now? Can't you get it straight? So you dove inside and found you care Well, I'm already gone from there

Left Behind 04:19
She tells me she'll be alright, but she won't She shares her cries, as she cries Spends each day through its night, no one at her side How high the walls she keeps, too high Left behind, you fell to pieces Now ghosts have closed that open mind Perched above us all, you see it Left behind She'll find someone to tell her what she wants So she won't need to be herself Tell me how many more have attempted and failed you? And how many more just couldn't be somebody else? Left behind, you fell to pieces Now ghosts have closed that open mind Perched above us all, you see it Left behind And with these words, now I'm exposed But will you choose to be so cold? Left behind, you fell to pieces Now ghosts have closed that open mind Perched above us all, you see it Left behind
