Track Name: Truth Between The Lines
I can feel the ghost leaving the building
With that we can call it a death
Your life with lovers in the wings
But here's all the blood's left

The feeling it's coming
That there is a truth between the lines
And nothing that can be so kind

Gonna be pushed out into orbit
Can't wait to hear the sounds vacate
That I've been nothing but worthless
In exile I'm leaving but I'll wait

The feeling it's coming
That there is a truth between the lines
And nothing that can be so kind

These nights were falling asleep at the wheel
Giving up and giving in until the fever heals
These days are counting down
Could it be so true?

I can't see anything in front of me
But I can see you leave
The love that was lost
It goes right out the window

Strangle the present from the past
With no expectations to last
Giving up before it goes right down the drain

The love that comes with a wandering eye
The love that comes with wondering why
That there's a truth between the lines

The love that comes with a wandering eye
The love that comes with wondering why
That there's a truth between the lines

These nights were falling asleep at the wheel
Giving up and giving in until the fever heals
These days are counting down
Could it be so true?
Track Name: Strangers Meet
Wasn't this home before?
I don't recognize it anymore
Because it seems like such a long time ago
The weeks and months that go by
Its these times that I try
But it's all long gone that I've known

This was so much fun
I couldn't say no
This was so much fun
You could say so

It's been a hell of a time
Reliving our past lives
Because it feels like such a long time ago
Now with the rendevous
To keep up with our youth
Because it's something that I've only known

This was so much fun
I couldn't say no
This was so much fun
You could say so

She said it was an easy sell
To be friends to be lovers
And all the times we never said it worked
We somehow have one another

Wasn't that the truth
Wasn't it the hard way around
To be the one left standing

Wasn't this home before?
I don't recognize it anymore
Because it seems like such a long time ago
The weeks and months that go by
Its these times that I try
But it's all long gone that I've known

This was so much fun
I couldn't say no
This was so much fun
You could say so

She said it was an easy sell
To be friends to be lovers
And all the times we never said it worked
We somehow have one another

Wasn't that the truth
Wasn't it the hard way around
To be the one left standing
Track Name: All Is Falling
Can only give the truth
In everything I say
But you needle for more more more
In every possible way
It's a mouth that moves
At unspeakable speed
It's the times it loses
When your heart leaves

To us it's all falling down the drain
The last goodbye it's our last refrain

And the time had come
That we knew was coming
The fairy tale ending
Had left the building
It's not what stopped
But what we forced along
The little things lost
The love that won't belong

To us it's all falling down the drain
The last goodbye it's out last refrain

And I can break that trust
And I can break those fingertips

And I can break your trust
And I can break your fingertips

And I can break your trust
And you can break my fingertips

To us it's all falling down the drain
The last goodbye it's our last refrain
Track Name: Narrowing Down
These words that spill out
Will have no meaning unless we follow them
It's a sad statement to make
And we'll never do each other right
Between all the happy days
Come the unforgiving angry nights
So it's these words that come
That say to us it's the end

There's an ending to start anew
To gain we have to lose

These words that spill out
Fall on our sleepy minds
To roost until daylight
Where we can think again
and find ourselves open
To what must start when
As we both think back
On what was the signs

There's an ending to start anew
To gain we have to lose
Track Name: Heartbeat
There are days of great supply
That I feel that were wasted away
And these times I never felt it
Should have known would have been easier than this

The life it's coming back to me now
Of all the years waiting on the outside

All the nights that came to pass
I always thought they'd be behind me
Until I find myself staring at the ceiling
It came again with that sinking feeling

The life it's coming back to me now
Of all the years waiting on the outside

It's been a lot of silence
and a lot of anger
And nothing ends in a bang just a whimper
But everyone can lie to themselves
Just like I can lie to myself

And you can change it change it all change it all
Make than it all better than it once was
And you can change it change it all change it all
Make it go back to when it once was love

And you can change it all on me
Track Name: The New
I'm no longer able to handle
The trespasses that we stay
As time goes on
There's a bed of mistakes that we laid

And I send you away without a fair shake

In the time of my ruin
I feel this is nothing
In the time of my ruin
But I'm moving on

Have to accept that
The bonds between us will never be the same
Maybe someday we'll grow ourselves
And find the right way

I see it now it's been a long wait

In the time of my ruin
I feel this is nothing
In the time of my ruin
But I'm moving on

There is no easy way out of here
Because when you're in love
You'll believe that everything
Will be fine
And it will

In the time of my ruin
I feel this is nothing
In the time of my ruin
But I'm moving on
Track Name: In Principle
Five long years we fight
And it only feels like it's been a day
The mood hasn't gone into the night
The feelings have refused to change

Spend all this time away
From the distance that came together
It wasn't meant to be this way
But it could have been a bigger distaster

And the sun will go down
On these sad old days

There's always a catch with the ire or the wrath
Because I feel like it's looking over my shoulder
In the night I never think about the consquences
I well I don't mean to hurt you I meant it

And the sun will go down
On these sad old days

Because when the sun goes down
The times begin to change
And the skies that collect all the dark clouds
To the nights that I waste

Will it be here
Can I find a change
Can I find anything to make this okay
Track Name: Closing Summary
And as the days pass by
I wonder where I'll gain a normal life
Seeing all my thought in the skyline
So far away from my mind
It's always gonna be this way
It's always gonne be the same
And as the night takes my hand
Leads me further than
Anywhere I really want to go
I think I can call this
I think I can call this home

In the weeks that come
They'll go just like the rest of them
Short and sweet to long and dumb
But they'll all heal these wounds
And hearts will all bloom soon
In the nights of solitary
Of all alone and weary
It's gonna be okay
It's gonna be okay
I swear
