Track Name: KDMJNJ
I don't need to light this match to know you'll get what's coming
there's a siren, a warning, but you're never listening
for your own sake I hope you feel at home in the dark
because your good intentions won't keep this fire burning

It must be engraved in you: save the best for last and die trying
but recorded or not, the stress of the chase and the distance are out there waiting

We're abandoning our post of standing next to you
because there is no one listening, no one was ever listening
take note, this is how you take back the night
when there is no one listening, no one was ever listening

Look around
your lips keep moving but not a word or a sound comes out
you're missing the point, we're losing our interest
but I'll bet you can hear this
so bring on the humid summers
the frigid winters never changed the game for me
because i'm packing the punch, they know when I hit the ground I'm running

We're abandoning our post of standing next to you
because there is no one listening, no one was ever listening
take note, this is how you take back the night
when there is no one listening, no one was ever listening

I don't need to light this match to know that you'll get what's coming because you're already burning
I don't need to light this match to know that you'll get what's coming because you're already burning

Because you're already burning inside
I will never let myself be warmed by that light again
because you're burning up, burning out, there won't even be ashes left of you.

We're abandoning our post of standing next to you
because there is no one listening, no one was ever listening
take note, this is how you take back the night
when there is no one listening, no one was ever listening
Track Name: Drowning
It breaks my heart to see this come full circle
from an empty promise to a pair of handcuffs and a lonely jail cell
keep fighting the good fight against your world
you're the only one who can help yourself

Day to day no one knows where you are
bar to bar and it looks like you don't either
knock one more back

The hardest part is knowing there is nothing we can do but let go
but let go
if this is not a sign of rock bottom I hope you survive the fall to your lonely goal

This is hopeless there's nothing we can do
I hear the dejected take pleasure in company, so don't listen to a word they say
although we don't know what you're going through we want the best for you
we want the best

Day to day no one knows where you are
bar to bar and it looks like you don't either
knock one more back for everyone you said turned their backs on you
this isn't you talking, I'll forgive every word. I'll save a seat for you

I'll save a seat for
I'll save a seat for you

If this is not a sign of rock bottom I hope you survive the fall to your lonely goal
Track Name: Drive
It was too much for me to process
so I just watched you long enough to know that you were really leaving
we were driving through Pennsylvania
for hours there had been a horrible downpour
"Oh? No..." Maybe I just shouldn't tell you

We took a road trip to Maryland through a snowstorm
we were going to wait until the next day
"Give me an hour, I'll be good to go."
You didn't seem nervous, we were laughing heartily

We're in the past, or whatever's left of it
dropping away from my nights
your parts and moments melted away
with your convenient lack of memory

Driving through Pennsylvania
the highway disappeared beneath the snow
all the cars went single file

We took a road trip to Maryland through a snowstorm
we were going to wait until the next day
"Give me an hour, I'll be good to go."
You didn't seem nervous, we were laughing heartily
I got home fine

The lanes on the highway disappeared beneath the snow
all the cars went single file
I pumped the breaks with no AB
I got home fine (I said it twice)
I got home fine (I said it twice)
Track Name: World Apart
Four eyes with no mouth to speak
I'm caught in a hook, brought in across the
seven deadly seas with turbulence
I'm made of accidents waiting just to happen

A bright square in this cold dark room
a steadfast distraction from self deprecation and
"I can't open my eyes," you said,
"to all I pride myself in seeing."

I didn't care then, and I don't care now
the feeling, your face fed me nourishment
and I ignored the starvation

Four eyes with no mouth to speak
I'm caught in a hook, brought in across the
seven deadly seas with turbulence
I'm made of accidents waiting just to happen

It's been years since the first big surprise
with four eyes and no mouth to speak
you were never there in a holistic sense
so take these words before my voice gives out
on the things we have yet to—

Four eyes, no speech
caught in, your hook

I found a home on the waves
there's nothing left of all of that now
blind sighted, caught off guard
but what am I supposed to do with all of that now

Take these words, regardless of the weather
the door was always open, like a moth to flames
the cotton in your ears spoke pleasantly enough
to move mountains, as my voice gave up
on the things we had yet to say
Take these words, neglecting all attrition
the door was always open, like a moth to flames
you stand to lose it all in a place we've never heard of
press these dry eyes to speak, but you won't write it down

—then, and I don't care now
the feeling, your face fed me nourishment
and I ignored the starvation
