Track Name: Thin Air
Hello there shadow
You lurk in the shallow depths of the dark
Following me, too afraid to be seen
With each mark you left turned into a scar

Let go, my fingers are slipping
Lost my grip with all the feeling
Can you heal me

Disappear right in thin air
Made me disappear right in thin air

Erase every known trace to these former ties
For my peace of mind
Write a new chapter with hope in each line
Now's the time to decide
Where you'll be as I leave

Disappear right in thin air
Made me disappear right in thin air

Hello there shadow
You lurk in the shallow depths of the dark
Following me, too afraid to be seen
With each mark you left turned into a scar
Track Name: Life Spent Chasing
I stopped short to see all the commotion
You tightly wrapped your car around a tree

Wake me I can't still be dreaming
Caught in between subconscious and reality
The voices in my head of ghosts from the past
Haunting, always haunting me

I stopped short to see all the commotion
You tightly wrapped your car around a tree
It left me shaking in the knees like a leaf in the breeze
Can't still be dreaming, I can't be dreaming

There's a fog at the end of the road
A pathway leading to where no one knows or ever goes
Visions of you running from me
A life spent chasing all the things we'll never reach

I stopped short to see all the commotion
You tightly wrapped your car around a tree
It left me shaking in the knees like a leaf in the breeze
I can't be dreaming

It's in the back of your head and it's the beat in your heart
It's on the tip of your tongue, you never knew where to start
Just let it out and hear me out right now

I stopped short to see all the commotion
Couldn't help but think if it had been me
Track Name: Letdown
Is attention what you crave to justify how you behave
Well let's be honest, no one buys it
Is approval what you seek from every person that you meet
Hiding the side of yourself you don't want anyone to see

While I have the floor I'll call you out
Since yourself's the only one you've ever cared about

Let's play a game called did you think I couldn't see
The emptiness spilling from your sleeves
You should've known better
Walls do have a way of hearing everything I say
I'm sending all my thoughts your way
I should've known better

Open your eyes to see that
I know you've been faking this whole time
Living a lie
Take off your mask 'cause
Everyone already knows what you look like
It's no surprise you let me down, you're a letdown

I'll be the raincloud storming over your head
Flooding your thoughts without warning
And dampening everything I can

Time was never on our side so I read between the lines
In hopes to find a sign because you're always on my mind

Open your eyes to see that
I know you've been faking this whole time
Living a lie
Take off your mask 'cause
Everyone already knows what you look like
It's no surprise you let me down, you're a letdown
Track Name: Never Really Got Away
I'm speechless, I don't want to believe this
You're sinking deep into a hole that
You've dug to be buried in
And you deserve it
By now you already should've learned how
To be a man, stick to the plan, and
Own up to the wrongs you did

I know everything that you tried to keep from me
Was all a big mistake you'll be sure again to make

Since you've ruined the party
The crumbling of your world has come back to haunt you
We'll make like mountains do and move on

Go find yourself now that you have lost everyone else

I know everything that you tried to keep from me
Was all a big mistake you'll be sure again to make

Have you been sleeping or are you silenced by the shame
Let this song be the very curtain call to your life on a vacant stage
You never really got away
Track Name: Smoke Signals
I'll just bite my tongue to keep the words from coming out
And swallow them back down to the bottom of
This volcano I have become, letting it all build up
There's a fire you see that lives inside of me
It grows as I breathe
And the day will come when it reaches the top
Leaving nothing behind

Smoke signals clouding the sky
Thought by now you would've come
Down in the ash is where you will lay
When all the black fills your lungs

If I held my breath would you be there to catch it back
Or let it hit the floor with those heavy hands
How can you stand and watch us burn
A spark in the wind was our means to an end

Smoke signals clouding the sky
Thought by now you would've come
Down in the ash is where you will lay
When all the black fills your lungs

A spark in the wind was our means to an end
Track Name: Are You Listening
Please refrain from using that tone
It hurts more than you know
Speaking in a form of echoes that have no place to go
I screamed out at the top of my lungs
It didn't get me anywhere
What will it take for you to see your conscious isn't very clear

The ignorance portrayed by a lack of sense
Answers to questions I'm dying to know

Wait are you even listening to anything I say
'Cause I'd give everything I have if it
Could make things stay the same
Stuck in a constant change, I flickered
Now I'm fading out without a sound
I'm a light lost in the grey

Just because I shine a different way than you do
It doesn't mean that you should let me slip
Right through the cracks and gaps of this dark path
Your company is becoming quite uncomforting
Pardon me, I'm on my way out

We're not the same

Wait are you even listening to anything I say
'Cause I'd give everything I have if it
Could make things stay the same
Stuck in a constant change, I flickered
Now I'm fading out without a sound
I'm a light lost in the grey

If you'd rather spend the rest of your days all alone
Just let me know and I'll let go
