Track Name: Abyss
when we were still young
out looking for shells
and you pushed your boat out
when i was caught in a swell
and i nearly drowned
in the late evening light
you just kept saying :
"you're alright! you're alright!"

you always knew
just what to say
to pull me back
when i was fading away
and i can be mean sometimes
i don't mean to yell
i wanna be with you
when we get outta this hell

how did we get into this
abyss?

you only talk
when you're asleep
is that what you want us to be?
and i pace around
while you're at the fair
looking for signs
that won't ever be there

how did we get into this
abyss?

how did we get into this?
Track Name: Honor Roll
honor roll
you were an honorable mention
but you'd just hide in the dark
it was a point of contention
and i thought i should mention

Haley, you deceived me
tried me so completely
Haley, you defeat me
you need to release me

bless your heart
you must still think it matters
what you say to yourself
as you stare up the ladder
as you stare up the

i'd really like to help you out
diffuse the charge and kiss your mouth
you mustn't harbor any doubt
that isn't what this is about
i can't control your idle charm
i get so spun i have to shout
my love for you will not disarm
and you've gotta find your own way out

honor roll
i was an honorable mention
and i was out of control
but i still paid attention
yeah, i still paid attention

i need
you to see me
try me
and believe me
i need
you to see me
try me
and believe me

i'd really like to help you out
diffuse the charge and kiss your mouth
you mustn't harbor any doubt
that isn't what this is about
i can't control your idle charm
i get so spun i have to shout
my love for you will not disarm
and you've gotta find your own way out
Track Name: Controlled Dive
i walk through the city
bare bones for the committee
and i need to take a five

i'm in a controlled dive

and i've lost most feeling
i'm alone on the ceiling
it's a place where i can thrive

i'm in a controlled dive

i'm a ghost of a fire
of a fighter retired
i'm alone, but i'm alive

in a controlled dive
Track Name: Canyon
the heart remembers what the mind forgets
in bits
it swallows
so deep that it will only be sipped
in dreams

and i was easiest for you to quit
when you knew
i'd never follow
i just try to pull together the rift

but it's a canyon
and i'm at the bottom of it
it's a canyon
and i'm at the bottom of it
it's a canyon
and i'm at the bottom of it
and it's all your fault
admit it

you hide what you want
but the lies never keep
you take off your mask
then you lay down and weep
and all these random things you speak
your talk is cheap
and boring me

you're a canyon
and i'm at the bottom of it
you're a canyon
and i'm at the bottom of it
you're a canyon
and i'm at the bottom of it
and it's all your fault
admit it
Track Name: Please Reply
i love you my little lee
if you'd just climb
don't be frightened
all these staircases you see
built so we could talk to titans

we are going nowhere fast
we are going nowhere

if you'd just wake up and see
this love i have, my little lee
i am burdened cause i miss you
would you finally release me?

we are going nowhere
we are going nowhere

and if you want to
i think you should
i love you still
you knew i would

the last i saw you, little lee
we drove our car into the sea
you just looked at me and smiled
i have never been more happy

are we going nowhere?
are we going nowhere?

and if you want to
i think you should
i love you still
you knew i would

are we going nowhere?
Track Name: Get Got
what if life is just a game?
i guess it is to certain men
who think not everyone's the same
they who live by cool and what's the trend
they who live by killing to pretend
that life is a game you can win

but what if death is just the end?
what if life is all we get?

what if life is just a dream
and someday we wake up in hell
no one to know there but ourselves
i don't even know him too well

and the afterlife is just a hope
not a hoax, but still just chances
so talk to everyone you can
and try to remember all your dances

cause what if death is just the end?
what if life is all we've got?
Track Name: Leave
i'm taking a red line
and ain't it a blast?
i'm a last resort
so you can relax

cause if i even tried
if i even tried
you'd ignore it

my hands were untied
i had held her once before
and there as she cried
i won't leave her anymore

a light through the window
i watch the earth pass
you are the one dear
i know has my back

and if i even tried
if i even tried
you'd ignore it

my hands were untied
i had held her once before
and there as she cried
i won't leave her anymore
Track Name: All The Angry Youth
all the angry youth
were shaking on the gates
when i saw her arrive
on the back of a bike

as she turned to move
i think she smiled at me
and the fire and light
lit up like a light-brite
and i saw in her eyes
some old Roman disguise

i never knew a rebel i could get close to
it's hard enough being a spy
when she could never know that i was on her side
she could never know that i was on her side

and on my evening route
i saw her in the square
with a bat in her hand
looking off into nowhere land

and all the angry youth
they had gone to bed
but one rebel remained
not to be contained
her beating heart rang
and some part of me changed

i never knew a rebel i could get close to
you know it's hard enough being a spy
when she could never know that i was on her side
she could never know that i was on her side
Track Name: Sara(h)
sara(h) pulls light
from darkened skies
she walks
light flickers down
and it flows
into the ground

sara(h)'s far away
i only speak to her on birthdays
she knows just what i see
all she's got to do is ask me
Track Name: Drown The Truck
i know what i'm gonna do
i'm gonna drown the truck
it's just a memory of you
i think that it's bad luck
i think that it's bad luck

it sits at the top of the drive
i think you left it there to spite me
and it is no surprise
you didn't even leave me a key
you didn't even leave me a key

and you are what you ain't
if what you is
is a fake
and you aren't who you say
because none of us are

i gotta get rid of that truck
it eats away at me
i want to be afraid
but i'm afraid to be
i am afraid to be
Track Name: Rain Down
i don't wanna have to have today
in my memory
i don't wanna write it down
at all

and i've been in a castle
and i've worked in the mud
but ain't nothing i've seen
is gonna stop the flood

it's gonna rain down
whenever it wants to
it's just gonna rain down
whenever it wants to

and i don't wanna have to call you up
to hear you
and i don't need no second guess
at all

and i waited to meet you
and you finally called
you said you think that you thought
we should not get involved

you know it's gonna rain down
whenever it wants to
it's just gonna rain down
whenever it wants to

when i look
i try to find
if you've found a place to hide
you're probably gone
and it's probably wise
cause the waters rise and rise and rise

it's gonna rain down
whenever it wants to
it's just gonna rain down
whenever it wants to
it's just gonna rain down
whenever it wants to
it's just gonna rain down
whenever it wants to

you know?
