Track Name: Untitled
Forced to cope with every roadblock this drive placed in our way. On and on, we're holding back. On and on, I'm trying to forget that we're two hours away from home. No signs of hope. I'm starting to think i'm coming home. I think my sanity's closing with the day. I'd like to think that we move on and on and on to better things. A night stranded in Cleveland was the only thing we needed to get this fucking town on the move. (A ten hour drive, yet so close to home.)
Track Name: Young States
My skin is stretched over lonely bones. Can't help but choke with your hands on my throat. It's hard to make up for your moves when they are set in stone. I assumed you were on your way. Another new face for every passing day. You say it's temporary but you can't escape yourself from past mistakes. You're a constant reminder of the sound. Replace tonight with better things, and make my better days. I've got this kind of hate that I can't keep put away. And what's the point of waiting when you got nothing to lose? Tear out my eyes. Bleed alive. I've fallen out of light. You're a constant reminder of the sound.
Track Name: I Still Shut My Eyes
Maybe I'm too quick to guess,
Throwing words again.
I keep cutting ties with my piece of mind so I can get this out.

At times I count myself out,
Wait for days till I can be found.
At times I'm just down and out,
Wait for days till I can be found.
Once I'm alive again,
Once I'm alive I start to love again,
But I still shut my eyes.
Track Name: Detached
If my lungs would motivate the words to come out, I'd probably say "I'm dying to leave." It's been a long time since I've felt right. I've been counting down the days. It's been a long time since I've felt right. This home isn't home to me. (I've never felt more alone. This town is not a home.) But I've never felt more at home.
Track Name: Right Through
It's not what you think. I just have this way of forcing words I never meant. And I'd like to think that there was weight in the words exchanged or the way it felt back then. And I know that gets colder at this time of year. And I know that it gets colder when the lies fly by.

Though I think you should know everything, I'm keeping this one in for good and that's the way it ought to be.

There's many things I'd probably say I wouldn't do but I did back then. I know I lied to you but it was better that way and it doesn't change the way you see right through. And I know that it gets colder at this time of year. And I know that it gets colder when the lies fly by.

Though I think you should know everything, I'm keeping this one in for good and that's the way it ought to be.

And I know that it gets colder at this time of year. And I know that it gets colder when the lies fly by.
