Track Name: Constant State
You watch me fight against current but it's proven to hard
you tried to compensate for leaving, by just falling apart
So I've made sure to keep some distance between me and my friends
I've made a constant fucking effort to find all these dead ends

So instead keep your head, Above all thats been said
Don't jump in, you won't win, don't stray far from the surface again

And y'know that, and y'know that, you won't break my ribs tonight
It's every little thing you say, it drags me under, it makes me sink
You fill these lungs with water

So what's the plan? Are we struggling to keep composure?
I ask you these questions you tell me you're not sure
Passive aggressively passing on bad nights
I tell myself daily that every things alright

Out of sight out of mind
Lately you'll find, I'm far from the line because i'm taking my time
I'm not on my own, and since then I've grown
You said if I jumped in you wouldn't let go

And y'know that, and y'know that, you won't break my ribs tonight
It's every little thing you say, it drags me under, it makes me sink
You fill these lungs with water

And it's sad your heart does what it's told
And under your sheep skin it must get old
Cause we've heard your stories and they're filled with lies
They pour through your sore gums and widened eyes

Every little thing you say, it drags me under, it makes me sink
Track Name: Up All Night
I didn't hear a word you said
But I'm trying to get it through my head
And I am looking just to catch a breath
So I can figure just out what I did tonight
Im searching for the answer to my life
And anything that helps me through this lie
I'm asking for assistance need a guide

Cause I've been up all night
Waiting to see through every darkened sky to leave the past behind
I've been up all night
Waiting to see through every hopeless sigh to leave the past behind tonight

I'm crawling back into my bed tonight, and sinking back into my great demise
And all these little things that pass the time, never meant much to me

Cause it's a different sound, A different feeling
I'm used to hearing, Used to stealing
And I can tell you how I really feel
I doubt you'd listen to me

Cause I've been up all night
Waiting to see through every darkened sky to leave the past behind
I've been up all night
Waiting to see through every hopeless sigh to leave the past behind tonight

To leave the past behind tonight

To leave the past behind tonight
Track Name: Secret's Safe
Well there's something wrong here,
You're giving me more than just the time of day
And there's something strong here,
I don't have the courage to walk away
To walk away

Well do ya feel that, ya feel that,
I hope to let you know,
I'm not the same kid I was back in high school now,
And I'm having a hard time figuring out,
The problems this will cause
You're trying to convince yourself,
Convince yourself it's fine

She's got a boyfriend, she's got a boyfriend
(ain't it so typical)
She's telling me she wants something new
Whoa, whoa, oh oh
She's got a boyfriend, she's got a boyfriend
(am I delusional)
Just let it go it's nothing new
Whoa, whoa, oh no

Well do ya hear that, ya hear that
I think that we both know,
A secret safe with you is safe with me
And you know I'm not surprised, the look inside your eyes,
Tells me that there's something wrong here
So come on let me break this down for you

She's got a boyfriend, she's got a boyfriend
(ain't it so typical)
She's telling me she wants something new
Whoa, whoa, oh oh
She's got a boyfriend, she's got a boyfriend
(am I delusional)
Just let it go it's nothing new
Whoa, whoa, oh no

Would you please not bring me into this
(Nights were long, nights were cold, things were getting old
It's all the same, I'm to blame, always what I'm told)
Track Name: Dead Weight
Lyrics:
I never thought about it that way
Actually I never thought at all
I'm sick and tired of feeling bad for shit you've stopped and stalled
Starting to feel like I'm just dead weight
Or maybe I'm just dead to you
It's no surprise, I did the things I swear I'd do for you

I'm lonely in my own spare time, I read between these broken lines
I'm not surprised, I think that I just need some sense of
Acceptance was a friend of mine, but lately she's been on decline
Swears that I shouldn't play the pessimist

I'm constantly trying, Dipping and diving
(I never really thought you'd care)
Get it together, I never really thought you'd care
(I never really thought you'd care)
Now I'm honestly lying, desperately hiding
(I never really thought you'd care)
I'm put back together, I never really thought you'd care
(I never really thought you'd care)

You're cutting it off, Just let it sink in
You say it's all good then do it again
I mean what I meant, I'm sick of this house again
I'm sick of this house again

So sick of
Constantly trying, Dipping and diving
(I never really thought you'd care)
Get it together, I never really thought you'd care
(I never really thought you'd care)
Now I'm honestly lying, desperately hiding
(I never really thought you'd care)
I'm put back together, I never really thought you'd care
(I never really thought you'd care)
Track Name: Hollow
I felt so hollow on the inside these past 3 and a half years
I've been stumbling over words that used to come out so clear
And I know that this is hard for you, All these words are hard to choose
I hope that things get better as you move to higher ground
Your found, Your found

I watched you fade away
I watched my whole world turn to grey
I felt so empty that cold january night

And they'll state things I already know
Feel your heart beat start to slow
I'm hardly here, Cause I'll never hear what I want to hear

Cause I've been turning over pages to find some acceptance
No one lives forever and I'm no exception
So what do I believe, I'm not entirely sure
I was finding some relief, now I just toil and stir
Because I'm too young to put those thoughts in my head
I'm in deep and darker waters, so I'll desperately tread
I remind myself exactly of what I am to say
But the words come out like violence before they fall into place so

I'm hollow

And I'm trying to piece it all together
I'd be lying if I said I'm
That I'm trying to piece it all together
Cause I'm lying, not getting any better

Not getting any better
Not getting any better

I watched you fade away
I watched my whole world turn to grey
I felt so empty that cold january night

And they'll state things I already know
Feel your heart beat start to slow
I'm hardly here, Cause I'll never hear what I want to hear

(I felt so hollow)

Cause I'll never hear what I want to hear
Cause I'll never hear what I want to hear
