Track Name: Four Wheel Drift
too fast break it stall it
we'll fail cause i'm not on it
it's rushed over thought it
you know what you wanted
seamless every changing last
head on but never moving back
holding to feel it slipping past
just hope that what you're fading lasts
same scene brake release

blindings flow so indisposed can't see
once i froze i lost control not me

too fast break it stall it
we'll fail cause i'm not on it
it's rushed over thought it
you know what you wanted
seamless every changing last
head on but never moving back
holding to feel it slipping past
just hope that what you're fading lasts
same scene brake release

blindings flow so indisposed can't see
once i froze i lost control not me

dispense a furious attempt
i came is so upkept
you held your second thoughts for me

blindings flow so indisposed can't see
once i froze i lost control not me

it never was and never should be
Track Name: Breakdown Anthem
set a distance
we like to challenge
but you have to admit that's so unfair
the change between us
we never noticed til we broke down our condescending pair
set a destination
and you know that it'll fail
complete connection
lacking guts to watch it build

set a distance

can't find combustion make it through this
all the thoughts and constant fixes
all the gauges prove that we'll never make it through this
stop the ride and start revisions

step back and focus what's done
we can't let the masses feel they've won
realizing time spent we trade in this broken old car that is us

set a distance

can't find combustion make it through this
all the thoughts and constant fixes
all the gauges prove that we'll never make it through this
stop the ride and start revisions

we'll find the faults to prove us
everything your thoughts and wants could be
changing sporadic moments
interjections by lack of focus
(how we make up the time)

we've bowed our thoughts and traded in the same two threes
Track Name: Outcome Provided
you're living through others
your conscience can hover behind your make up
breaking from routine means wandering between what you're afraid of
daily recited an outcome provided seemingly laid out
conflicts avoided motivations distorted
standing in self doubt

you're so stuck and afraid of yourself
you're so stuck and afraid of yourself
you're so stuck and afraid of yourself
you're so stuck and afraid, aren't you?

the patterns within them
your intricate system
a network of safe ways
your constantly tricking yourself out of thinking
waiting for better days
daily recited an outcome provided seemingly laid out
conflicts avoided motivations distorted
standing in self doubt

you're so stuck and afraid of yourself
you're so stuck and afraid of yourself
you're so stuck and afraid of yourself
you're so stuck and afraid, aren't you?

you won't do what won't suit you
Track Name: Pedestals
i put you up to high
i put you out of reach into other's eyes
i can't do right by you
you're in another world, another point of view
insane, but steady pace
beating out strong until i see your face
inset my circuits blown
i can't do well not when i'm alone

the best side;
i could drive you away

i can't find a common ground
i can count on you just to let me down
constantly feeling lost
you're always having fun, always at my cost
insane, but steady pace
beating out strong until i see your face
inset my circuits blown
i can't do well not when i'm alone

the best side;
i could drive you away

i know that you're too deep
i said that i'd do things
a promise i could not keep
just know the best don't matter


the best side;
i could drive you away
Track Name: Spoiler
you hit the nail the right on the nose
you waste your days with t.v. shows

fortunes confined with iris
it only shines for you
coldness becomes your second favorite past-time
and colors black and blue

you hit the nail the right on the nose
you waste your days with t.v. shows

fake this time feel the message
an evening in denial
so i will force all my thoughts in collective
just to see you smile like you did when when were younger
i tried to compare i took notes
i couldn't believe it though
you wont pursue to do it on your own
i can't confide in you
Track Name: Scarecrow
you're hanging up regrets
you hate everything and everyone you meet
time goes by
fixes and promises to make amends
it's the hardest thing
you'd rather go to sleep

and i know that we're friends
it doesn't have to end
just take your chances this time
you've scared them all away
just move on
and we'll take this over

if i knew there might have been
captions caught or one less thought

sidewalks look like every other never changing picture
can you tell the difference
(i'm just waiting)
distance failing reminds me postcards
waiting for the answer pertaining to my questions
(i'm just waiting)
Track Name: James Dean
just leave your coat
and take off your shoes
it's never the same
we weren't that close
but i got confused
you walked out again
where were you then and where are you now my friend?
where were you then and where are you now my friend?

black coat
patent leather shoes
so what cause you're good to go
i want you to know
so young racing out your roads
so what cause you're good to go
i want you to know that when you crashed it killed me

it's never how long you could be around
or act like you care
it's hardly your fault
your feet touch the ground
i sit and i stare
where were you then and where are you now my friend?
where were you then and where are you now my friend?

black coat
patent leather shoes
so what cause you're good to go
i want you to know
so young racing out your roads
so what cause you're good to go
i want you to know that when you crashed it killed me
Track Name: Heavymetal Dreamhouse
can you tell me what's the difference?
(i doubt it matters)
we've come this far
the closest friends
alone at heart

can you tell me this conversation
(it's going nowhere)
has been done before
we'll figure out
afraid of more

restricted friends
i still wonder how you would feel next to me
but i'd get stuck in this run around
if i could only give it back

my second chance

say what you want
i'll listen to all of your thoughts and decisions
burn me with your problems
i never knew how to solve them
your same delayed decisions
say what you want
i'll be gone
you know and i know that i can't stay

my second chance
Track Name: Failing Physics
it's pointless swinging at the wall
i'm holding back
i lost it all because she wrecked me
he can't expect me to move
and though i've got regrets efforts are easy to forget

rewinding thoughts just play the same
retraced and dreading rearranged
i've waited so long
but this feels wrong to me
so until my temper sets efforts are easy to forget

hairline fracture - the distance between failing and falling

it's caution changing into fun
all thoughts are spinning into one
you've got me shaking
and this is taking away from every step ahead efforts are easy to forget
living my life just like a maze
my head is hot and out of phase
my patterns breaking which way will keep me safe
push my thoughts my faked attempts efforts are easy to forget

hairline fracture - the distance between failing and falling

take me back
ride from the bottom to the top
you know the failing never stops
its just a circle that begins

don't pretend things don't end
