Breathe you in... Like cigarettes, you'll be my gust of moribund air but when we're glued you do no wrong. Won't you be my friend? I think I know how this will end but I cannot help myself. Siren song - It's been a year since I've been free. It seems so long but you still have a hold on me and I cannot escape your memory. Wish I could help myself. Should have plugged my ears; no one was there to tie me down. I disappeared when you lured me in with your song. Naught but flesh and bone left to rot with all the rest but I couldn't help myself. Vexing virgin of the Earth, I will cut your wings and hold your head under the blue so you can breathe it in and when your face matches the sea, I'll be the first to leave you. I just couldn't help myself, couldn't help myself. Pulled by every cell in my body's well. Couldn't find myself falling where you fell. Couldn't help myself.
2.
All of my smiles are lost in photographs When did I become an imitation of myself? Holding on 'til I see the light Holding on 'til I fall asleep tonight All of my friends have gone and left me here All alone I fall into the flood of hearts, drowning Holding on 'til I see the light Holding on 'til I fall asleep tonight I don't even know if I can see you, I can't see you I don't even know if I can hold you in the moonlight I don't even know if I can see you, I can't see you I don't even know if we can burn away so bright All of my best lines are locked in my dreams All of my favourite songs don't exist All of my pain multiplied by every word you never said And all I ask is one more chance to throw it all away Holding on 'til I see the light Holding on 'til I fall asleep tonight

Doctor, please, I really need your help I fear I'm falling and don't trust myself I'm on my knees begging you for the answers Paralyzed by anxieties And I've tried burying tragedy But it's clawing away at me If I write it in a song Will you take it And break it And right all the wrong? If I hide it in a song Will you find it Unwind it So I can move on? I cannot sleep... My brain will not allow it Overcome by the urgency So, doctor, please, cauterize all the cancers Instrumental lobotomy And I've tried burying tragedy But it's digging away at me If I write it in a song Will you take it And break it And right all the wrong? If I hide it in a song Will you find it Unwind it So I can move on?

I tried to be the perfect friend And I learned perfection is a flaw So I take back every word I said... To make you feel better And I wish for every time I went out of my way To do or say something to make you feel okay You'll lay away a thousand nights Regretting everything you didn't try To make me feel better And now I'm gone And I'm not ever coming back Just keep moving on I have never been better You tried to put me on the shelf To take me down when it best suited you But now I'm gone - expired; you left me here to rott Bacteria has turned me sour And now you'll never find better And now I'm gone And I'm not ever coming back Just keep moving on I have never been better And I know your soul is holding onto me And I know your soul is holding, haunting me

These head films, they're filthy My mind's eye - the mud These demons, they haunt me They're all out for blood You're hard-press against me Laughing as I fall I'm waiting for something In no time at all Break me, tear me open Hurt me - my insides cut, gouged and exposed The only way I know Can you taste these black lies? They live in my mouth And each time you kiss me More maggots fall out Like clockwork, I spiral Rise up, fall again Good god, I just realized Even I'm not my friend Break me, tear me open Hurt me - my insides cut, gouged and exposed The only way I know I couldn't breathe when you said "All the lies were once true" I thought I knew... You were the worst thing That ever happened to me The best thing That never happened to be
6.
I told myself I would never write this song It wouldn't be my first broken promise I have tried to white it out, break a string But I just end up saying what I don't mean This song is not for you And everything you do This song is not for you I know not what to say or how to say it But these words keep falling out to lay this straight I'm wronged so you can live forever in song But this ends right now, no, I can't let you win! This song is not for you And everything you do This song is not for you
7.
Remember the night I stood and sang outside your window? Remember the rain that filled these empty roads with air? Remember the way we made this love to last forever? Never letting go in fear of losing faith? Let's forget the pain and fall and live in love Like we're fifteen again and life will never end If we believe we can, there's nothing we can't do We'll make it thought, just take my hand Remember the passion, fascination with each other Remember the misery that never could defeat I remember the voices speaking softly without any sound at all Finding solitude between the cells behind the cellar door Do you remember the way we loved, Love?
