Track Name: Give Up Your Ghosts
Give Up Your Ghosts

The ghost that used to haunt my bones
is feeding on the innocent
he calls your name to hold you close
but when he screams your name its dissenate

and I would find a better way (better way)
If I could honestly say
(honestly I never said that I would care)
That I would care if you're afraid (you're afraid)
but I'm not here to keep you safe

I was lost but I'll find my way again
I've been gone for some time
breathe in deep, deeper now
as deep as you can
In due time you'll be fine
In due time you'll be fine
you'll be fine, you'll be fine
Track Name: Growing Young and Aging Poorly
Growing Young and Aging Poorly

You break your wrist to grasp at things that you can't have
and you don't deserve so I've heard
and I broke your legs so you can't run from what I have to say
but honestly I should have let you get away

I wanna feel the ocean air brush across my face
to wash all of my indecency away
I wanna feel the weight of the world just stretch my body out
and tell me I will love again, I'll love again

If the worst is over when does the best start?
If distance makes the heart grow fonder
why did I fall apart,
when you were leaving again?
I'll come around
If I can stand my ground
I'll come around

All the things I could have said
If I could only find the words to say
and all the lies I could have told
if my tongue wouldn't get in the way
and all the hearts I could have broke
If I could only find the strength
but I was so much younger then,
Yeah I was so much younger then

You break your wrist to grasp at things that you can't have
and you don't deserve so I've heard
and I broke your legs so you can't run from what I have to say
but honestly I should have let you get away

If the worst is over when does the best start?
If distance makes the heart grow fonder
why did I fall apart,
when you were leaving again?
I'll come around
If I can stand my ground
I'll come around

I'll come around
I'll come around
I'll come around
I'll come around
if I can stand my ground
I'll come around
Track Name: The Visionary
The Visionary

I was holding your hand
in a loose and unloving fashion
until I fell asleep
to the sound of your heart beating without any compassion
I was losing myself
I took a train to the next town
It was the last chance
that I had
to feel alive

(Oohs)

and when I opened my eyes
I was hoping I was here for something,
praying that I wasn't made for nothing
and when I lost all control
you know, I know, I told, you so.

I don't want to, but I have to
I don't need you, but I have you

(Oohs)

I don't want to, but I have to
I don't need you, but I have you

and when I opened my eyes
I was hoping I was here for something,
praying that I wasn't made for nothing
and when I lost all control
you know, I know, I told, you so.
Track Name: I'm Losing My Mind
I'm Losing My Mind

I was afraid of, the way you'd react to this
when I came down from my trip
and I was afraid of the songs you would sing,
and if they would just freak me out but I had this coming

and I
I don't want to be mistreated,
I don't want to be mislead,
I just want to be missed
and I
I don't want to be mistaken,
for another young misfit
I don't want to lose my mind,
but I'm losing my mind.

Held my head to the sky and prayed that I wouldn't feel like this forever
(held my head to the sky)
Held my head to the sky and prayed that it would never fall down upon me
(held my head to the sky)
Hold my hand hold it tight and pray that I will breathe again in a moment
(Hold my hand hold it tight, hold it tight, hold it tight)
break these walls in my head, pass the stained glass, and the pain because,

I'm not breaking down, I'm just breaking myself in
and I learned my lesson once but I was just a kid back then
and if you get the nerve to ask me how I sleep,
the answer is on my left side and its comfortably, comfortably.

Track Name: The Lust, The Eyes, The Flesh
The Lust, The Eyes, The Flesh

I was in a cage kept safe away
from the people I'd loved and the people I was yet to save
but I'd become obsessed
with a whore that deserved nothing better than a hole in her chest
She had a body of beauty
my eyes shouldn't fall in love with out any feeling.
she tamed me like a horse
she ran and I waited I was wronged I was jaded

Oh, When did it because customary to fall in love when you're so young
well, you're born alone, you'll die alone and everyone will see
how miserable you're truly meant to be.

We all self medicate,
it just depends on what you do that makes you who you are
(we all self medicate it just depends on what you do that makes you who you are)
I don't want to be the last to know,
I don't want to be the last to sing.

well, you're born alone, you'll die alone and everyone will see
how miserable you're truly meant to be.

Track Name: The Composure, The Compromise
The Composure, The Compromise

I would find the perfect plan,
If I wasn't blinded by it
For I am only human
I bleed when I am cut
I'm starved when I'm not fed.
But I will learn from this.

Think twice before you go
I don't think I'm ready to take this on alone
Think twice before you go
I don't think I'm ready to take this on alone

The heart is deceitful above all things,
and desperately wicked
who can know it?

Think twice before you go
I don't think I'm ready to take this on alone
Think twice before you go
I don't think I'm ready to take this on alone

The composure, the compromise
the constant battle between whats wrong and right
The composure, (The composure) The compromise (the compromise)
the constant battle between whats wrong and right

Think twice before you go
I don't think I'm ready to take this on alone
Think twice before you go
I don't think I'm ready to take this on alone

The composure, (think twice before you go) the compromise
the constant battle between whats wrong and right
The composure, (think twice before you go) The compromise
the constant battle between whats wrong and right
but who can know it?
Track Name: Diagnosis:
Diagnosis:

Who ever says patience is a virtue,
they must not have met you
because you confuse it with stubbornness
you say you haven't slept in days
well i think you can't sleep with the thought of me on you're brain
but don't you worry because I'm leaving soon
I can't stand to see the things you consume
when you're alone in your living room
you're talking to who, whoever will listen to you when you say
I guess we all fall in love some day

We were gone before the birds did their dance of the day
and wed lost before we'd ever had the chance to win
we were hoarding all of the love we had made in the past
and we were dead before death was established
we got old
we were together but we were still alone (ohh)
I hope it hurts to know you need to be needed
and no one needs you no more (no one needs you no more)
you make love just to make it
you kiss hard but you fake it
you wanna love like you loved me.
