Track Name: False Charmers
Through false leads and a crooked smile
Darkness sounds to wait a while
All I have lost to the game
That you play

I am talking to myself
Cause I’ve lost everybody else
You were my favorite memory
To set free

Who knows, who cares
Just walk away, cause I’m no one today
Nothing’s changed, it’s still the same
I just don’t notice anymore, cause there’s no before

Underneath the bright red sky
Streets are empty, ghosts are white
There are times the shadows dance before the choir
And you are the fire

Gentle sounds arrived in time
Now listen close for the flat line
We all heard the sirens of love
So show me what you’re afraid of
Track Name: Carousel
Don’t talk to me like, you talk to yourself
Cause I can’t help but second guess the hand that’s already been dealt
And I don’t wanna hurt you, I just wanna know
Where you were when I was buried in the snow

Any day is fine for me if it’s fine for you
Take your best shot, cause I really don’t have a clue
Where this is going and when it’s gonna end
I’m just hoping that you find the right message to send

I know who you’ve been talking to
And I don’t care, I don’t care
An easy way for you to resign
I don’t mind, I don’t mind

Project this vintage movie that’s dancing in my head
Cause all I see are picture frames of memories I wish were dead
But there’s a light that never seems to burst
Even when it always hurts
Track Name: Placed To Lose
Tryna fight the sleep tonight
Tryna fight the sound
Tired of telling myself I’ll be alright
When I’m halfway under ground

Closed my eyes but you’re still tied to me
Suppose I like you better then the rest
The lights are out now I’ve met the queen
I hope it’s not another selfish test

Cause I’ve got it bad
I’ve got all my bets placed to lose
I’m not scared, I just want you

Wish I knew what you were looking for
But now, I don’t care, anymore

Now you’re out with some broken star
Who’s taking you away from what you know
And I’ll still be the one who knows who you really are
Cause I’ll be here when you’re good to go

Cause I’ve got it bad
I’ve got all my bets placed to lose
But I’m not scared, I just want you
Track Name: You Gave Yourself Away
He said he changed through his grin
And you believed him
Like everything you’ve been through was fake
You just can’t defeat him

And you said I’m all yours
If you want me
But now that I’ve tried you can’t
Even talk to me

Cause you’ve stepped down, I’ll stand up
I’ll watch your face I’ll, play it cool

How can you wrap up a lie
In disguise
You can highlight the facts
But can’t dot your I’s

And you found out your mistake
Was you were too late
Asked to follow the line
You’re not walking straight

Cause you’ve stepped down, I’ll stand up
I’ll watch your face I’ll, play it cool

You gave yourself away
You gave yourself away
You gave yourself away
You gave yourself away
You gave yourself away
You gave yourself away
You gave yourself away
You gave yourself away
You gave yourself away
You gave yourself away
You gave yourself away
You gave yourself away
You gave yourself away
You gave yourself away
You gave yourself away
You gave yourself away
You gave yourself away
You gave yourself away
Track Name: Falling Cards
Face down, burning my steam
Take it back and try and stay clean
I’m on a carousel
You think you know me so well

You keep closing the curtain for everyone else
Cause you lost the path, that you paved for yourself
Where’s the silent man?
Who’s behind your plan

I got so far so soon
But lost it all in one last breath
Stole some light from the moon
To sleep again, to sleep again

I’m a house of falling cards
Don’t bother picking me up, cause I’m already scarred
Give me a second face
Just name the time and place

You keep telling yourself that you’re incomplete
I’m hanging over the edge, now I have to leave
There’s no sympathy
I’m counting down from three

I got so far so soon
But lost it all in one last breath
Stole some light from the moon
To sleep again, to sleep again
Track Name: Pictures In My Head
I saw you standing by the door
Dressed in black with your face down to the floor
Then I saw your eyes, I woke up paralyzed
In a state of mind that I, just can’t ignore

I broke the hold of the weight tied to my chest
The poison in my veins took care of the rest
My bones began to shake, the walls began to quake
And I saw pictures in my head I can’t help but make

It’s never as it seems, tell me why
I can feel it draining life
It’s never as it seems, tell me why
Drowning under skies reflecting lights

Every night begins and ends the same
A long confusing sleepless boring game
But then I fade away, I’m just used to it that way
To prepare myself for the same thing another day

Now all I want, Is sleep, just sleep
Track Name: Before You're Charged
You can put it however you’d like
Cause if I say what I mean, you’ll just fight
And you’ve got a love inside your heart but it’s not mine
Missed the call when you saw I was on the line

Keep your still frames and your movies exposed
Sick of repeating all these words you say you know
And I don’t wanna be the only one, around
Who’s walking straight on a road that’s upside down

Cause this is how you always are
You admit your mistakes before you’re charged
And If I had a voice I’d say to you
I don’t know you, but I can’t lose you

Are you happy with the way you are
Cause you’ve got me feeling so bizarre
I can’t decide if I’m alone or it’s the fear
Of knowing that you just, might soon disappear

The distant shadows always bring me clues
And I suppose that I’m the one to pick and choose
It never seems to go the correct way
Leaving me with nothing more to say

Cause this is how you always are
You admit your mistakes before you’re charged
And If I had a voice I’d say to you
I don’t know you, but I can’t lose you
Track Name: No Rewards
I won’t talk to you, if you don’t want me to
I’m tired of chasing my tongue
When you took yourself away in silence
I was left with, no where to run

I’ve said everything I could possibly say
My words are useless and bored
It’s always on my mind but you seem okay
You can’t really expect a reward

I don’t have to know, I don’t have to know
Just leave it alone, just leave it alone
I don’t have to know, I don’t have to know
Just leave it alone, just leave it alone

If only you could see what’s inside of me
Then these nights might not always drag on
I never had a moment to show you
Now your reach is as good as gone

I’m seeing blue, I’m hearing you, I’m feeling strange
Why’s everything beautiful fall apart?
Where you are is where I wanna be
And love you like my work of art

I don’t have to know, I don’t have to know
Just leave it alone, just leave it alone
I don’t have to know, I don’t have to know
Just leave it alone, just leave it alone
Track Name: Say Farewell
Say Farewell
To what you left behind
Go ahead, won’t you please
Tell me what’s on your mind

Would it ease, the problem
If I just walked away
Now that I realize
I’m just used to it that way

Cause it’s your fault not mine
You know you were late
Why can’t you just hold back longer today
You said you could never be enough for yourself

Maybe I
Just have a problem with myself
And I don’t know why
I’m always asking you for help

Heard the story
A thousand times before
Please don’t worry, cause you’re the one I love to adore
The one I love to adore
Track Name: Passing By
With what I have, with what I can see
I wish you knew how much you mean to me
In places, I’ve never been
I’m tripping over my feet, I’m tripping over defeat, again

You told me, you had nothing to lose
When you passed by, you left me so confused
Cause I know how everything falls into place
I’ve been let down, by a familiar face

Take me somewhere I can ignore
Everything that makes me afraid
It’s been said once before
Still hanging your head in shame

I’m just looking for an escape
Cause there’s nothing for me here to relay
Is no one with me? Am I here all alone?
You can say I do, but I don’t.

So take me somewhere I can ignore
Everything that makes me afraid
It’s been said once before
Still hanging your head in shame
