Track Name: Let Me Be the First to Apologize for The Beatles
ENOUGH!! Two years
Now these white flags are coming up black
RELIEF!! Is your mouths
Politely sown up
And if “Everyone Loves Everyone”
Can anyone take the blame
For all those knives left in all of your backs?
So now I’ve made you a bed
I’m here to make sure that you lie in it

I watched the truth die
Inside of fashion-forward cannibal tribes
I sleep just fine at night with thoughts I didn’t purchase
I sleep just fine without a bloated sense of purpose

Oh it’s so sad, it’s so sad
Now you’re running in place
And I’m so glad, I’m so glad
I put that look on your face

I watched the truth die
Inside of fashion-forward cannibal tribes
I sleep just fine at night with thoughts I didn’t purchase
I sleep just fine without a bloated sense of purpose

I guess I should’ve known better
Than to leave the art with you boys
I guess I should’ve known better
Than to leave this shit in your hands

I watched the truth die
Inside of fashion-forward cannibal tribes
I sleep just fine at night with thoughts I didn’t purchase
I sleep just fine without a bloated sense of purpose
Track Name: Bangover
Sleepless
We’re a far cry, with careless notes
In a house that seems to move and bend
Ignore and mend, ignore and mend itself
Before we proclaim

“This is the first and the last day sober”
A weak carousel always traveling around
Not a soul enjoying the ride
Stiff neck, book ends, stop concentrating
Weak legs, with a throat full of cigarette
We can’t ignore and mend
We can’t decide the worst

(Wake up, put on your eyes)
I think we’ve had enough
Do you think we’ve had enough?
I think we’ve had enough
Let’s reset the dialogue
Let’s reset these consonants

“This is the first and the last day sober”
A weak carousel always traveling around
Not a soul enjoying the ride
Stiff neck, book ends, stop concentrating
Weak legs, with a throat full of cigarette
We can’t ignore and mend
We can’t decide the worst

Keep those speeches close to your chest

“This is the first and the last day sober”
A weak carousel always traveling around
Not a soul enjoying the ride
Stiff neck, book ends, stop concentrating
Weak legs, with a throat full of cigarette
We can’t ignore and mend
We can’t decide the worst
Track Name: The Actual Sound
Yes, I’m afraid
Yes, I am fearful
As all these plans become diffusive
And my only, my only…

Constant trials
Feeling content with all the lives I’ll never lead
I’m settling
You’re settling down

Some days
Some days I want to destroy
What I have
What I have worked to reverse

Constant trials
Feeling content with all the lives I’ll never lead
I’m settling
You’re settling down

Constant trials
Feeling content with all the lives I’ll never lead
I’m settling
We are settling

We are days unnumbered
Track Name: Lukas
So where did it begin?
You watched your father rot away. His son receding
He had no choice, as yours corrodes inside your veins
React and relapse again
You’re alive, but the ones that you love
You’re scared you’ve abandoned them

You lost a lifetime hiding in basements, namelessly wasted
Never ceasing belief that you’re worthless
But you know, and it’s shown in your cavalier heart

I’ve pictured death a hundred times
Amongst the kids flushed out with substances
But I never pictured you
No, I thought they’d have saved you
Dead weight will always find you
And I know that you feel them at your door

You lost a lifetime hiding in basements, namelessly wasted
Never ceasing belief that you’re worthless
But you know, and it’s shown in your cavalier heart

And then that day when I saw you cutting grass
Along the road that led to your mother’s old house
And I saw, I saw a glimpse of those days
Inside the backyard, playing pretend
You married my sister with a ring made out of clips
It felt as real as we could get
I should’ve pulled the car over
Told you to get yourself together
But I moved on
I’m sorry I’ve moved on

You lost a lifetime hiding in basements, namelessly wasted
Never ceasing belief that you’re worthless
But you know, and it’s shown in your cavalier heart

Lukas, I know you’re still in there
I hope there’s still a home for you somewhere
Track Name: Vacant
Apathetic towards the design
I cannot arrive
Blacking out, and I’m speechless
Now I’ve lost my sight
You’ve lost your faith

You feel the same as being alone
And I have belief in this vacancy

We pace this patiently
Placed along the sheets’ divide
These veins remain clouded, and I’ve gone back on everything
And all those seconds ache along like hours and hours
Spent as someone trying hard to retain
Those faithless nights where I had to stay

You feel the same as being alone
And I have belief in this vacancy

You senseless man, why don’t you send her home?

Maybe tonight, maybe tonight
These structures will breathe the life
Back into my chest
Track Name: Trophy Wife
“Old friend,” I think you lost your words again
I think you lost your mind
Oh no, I think those kids have found you out
I think it’s time to hide
Maybe it was all too much
Maybe you were far too much

Come and seize a different personality
(Make them, make them see)
But if it’s going too slowly
Make it up as you go along
(Make them, make them see)
They’ll only miss you if you’re gone

“Old friend,” I won’t let you get away
From portraits you left
Inside a frame that seems so contrived

Come and seize a different personality
(Make them, make them see)
But if it’s going too slowly
Make it up as you go along
(Make them, make them see)
They’ll only miss you if you’re gone

You are the best at feeling rehearsed
Always the best at feeling rehearsed
(Don’t let them know me)
We are the best at feeling rehearsed
Always the best at feeling rehearsed
(Don’t let them know me)

Come and seize a different personality
(Make them, make them see)
But if it’s going too slowly
Make it up as you go along
(Make them, make them see)
They’ll only miss you if you’re gone
Track Name: Title Track
So cast a light to illuminate
Our little home, our tiny lives
But trust me when I say
When I say we’re bigger than any sound
That comes from the ones that are “beautiful”
We are the ones who are privileged

Mending fences that were broken
I’ll place my hands along your backs
As a promise to hold you above
The water from the floods
Of pasts disconnected, of hollow trust
I’ll carry your burdens if you’ll stay with me

Don’t go, stay inside
Speak till the words hold our thirst through the night
And you’ll say that no one comes close to what we hold
And if they come for us, entitled and selfish
I’ll say, “No more!” No, my chest cannot take it
We are more than youth, no line to fall into
We don’t need a second chance

Mending fences that were broken
I’ll place my hands along your backs
As a promise to hold you above
The water from the floods
Of pasts disconnected, of hollow trust
I’ll carry your burdens if you’ll stay with me
Track Name: Inconveniencer
I formed a halo out of guilt, wore it proud as a crown
Dressed myself, adorned a defense so sound
Who are you to tell me where I lay my body down?

I’ve hung my head just as low as I could
Felt the heels upon my neck
As I felt my throat break through to say
(Heads hung lower than the leaves you’re staring at)
“I’ve got a deathwish, but they won’t let me leave
So I’ll take apart my body and toss these limbs into the sea
Hope they won’t mind the forgery”
(Heads hung lower than the leaves you’re staring at)

So you’ve built this ledge
Reprehensive with judgment as I inch forth
“Bring me salvation”
Oh restless, restless man
Get those blackened feet running
Your scenes are almost over and…

“OH GODDAMNIT, WON’T YOU LEAVE ME ALONE?
I’LL LET MYSELF OUT WHEN I’M READY
I’M DAMN WELL READY, YEAH”

I’ve hung my head just as low as I could
Felt the heels upon my neck
As I felt my throat break through to say
(Heads hung lower than the leaves you’re staring at)
“I’ve got a deathwish, but they won’t let me leave
So I’ll take apart my body and toss these limbs into the sea
Hope they won’t mind the forgery”
(Heads hung lower than the leaves you’re staring at)

So who are you to tell me where I lay my body down?
Track Name: Lilacs
Oh sister, calm your heart down, let it go
She needs you safe, she needs you safe tonight
Just put your worst to rest
And I need you to know, yes I need you to know
That you’re the better of the both of us
You’re the better of the both of us

So if you go, let the lilacs grow
Casting color into sunlight
And if you go, let the lilacs grow
Casting color into sunlight
Ever grown, they will always show us home

Don’t lose the color from your blue eyes
The ones that you gave, the ones that you placed in me
Always given me everything
Reoccurring as the tides, a worry in these times ahead
That I won’t make you realize that I need you
I’ll always need you

No, I won’t you go before me
I won’t let you go first
Not unless I lead

So if you go, let the lilacs grow
Casting color into sunlight
And if you go, let the lilacs grow
Casting color into sunlight
Ever grown, they will always show us

No, I won’t you go before me
I won’t let you go first
Not unless I lead

Ever grown, they will always show us
