Track Name: Skeleton
History is seemingly repeating, my decisions all the same
Control is out of focus when your life moves frame by frame

Farewell, no one sees me now, I am traveling (try to escape)
Hand in hand with my skeleton 'cause I lost sight long ago

She marches on to her sad, sad song, the one that was never heard
Her grip on me is so strong, but she might let up with one word

Little did I know what would come of me after everything I'd built
I so eagerly sat back and drank your tall glass of overwhelming guilt

And then I screamed, "farewell,"
Go on take a bow while the empty chairs cheer you on
I'm still traveling with my skeleton, my bones lead me on
Track Name: Breaking Branches
Breaking Branches
Been there before, such a small dark place
Softly speaking, try to set the pace
Repeat yourself, you're so satisfied, but we're far from satisfied
You cast your spell of intoxication
Sadly we fell, desperate temptation
Oh we've heard the truth lonely victim, oh we've heard the truth

We're hanging high from the branches on the tree where we complied
We're hanging high now we're promising goodbye
Gently swaying on display, show us off some other day
'Cause we're breaking branches tonight

He took her hand, led her to the dark place
She held you close, you pushed her away
Her confidence is so shot to hell
All those walks up the icy stairwell to rescue him from himself
All those walks on the coldest evenings just to be placed upon the shelf

We're not letting go through the undertow
Oh we were waiting for the day to break free
Track Name: Room 401
Long roads were all I had in the dead of the night
Nothing could prepare me for the battles I would fight
I wasn't meant to stay in this place that I was born
I knew I had to find myself, inevitably torn
Day after day into my words I'd sink
Until those days were over, because I was the missing link

My home in sight under these lights
It's calling out, it seems to be the only place
that restores my dying faith
in what is real and true

Long roads were all I had in the dead of the night
And nothing could prepare me for the battles I would have to fight
Strange faces threw me in quicker than before
Memorizing lines as I hurried through the door
Where are these cruel people, vile to the core?
Surely I was trapped but nothing like before
Track Name: Safe and Sound
Who are you? What could be the likelihood, the living proof?
Who are you? What could come of this monstrosity? No use.
Who's to know what you hold inside your mind tied with a bow?
Who's to know how you fill the empty spaces, hands so low?
Who's to know what you hold inside your mind tied with a bow?
Who's to know, how can I even try to tell you no?

I'll keep you safe and sound
Away from lonely people 'cause you tend to dig a deep hole
I'll keep you safe and sound
Tied up in my castle, now you're not a hassle

Come inside, please describe to me how wild is the ride
Come inside, after all you're living proof of perfect lies
Run and hide, I won't help you write your perfect alibi
Run and hide, you know you're never safe and I know why

Barely aware of who you are
But your focus is on getting so far
Who am I to keep you here?
This mistake is the least of my fears
Come inside one last time

Who are you? What could be the likelihood?
Track Name: Eyes On You
Eyes On You
Is it strange to lose your mind?
And will you come back to find what you left behind?
So take your words, swallow them whole
You're living now, but what's your goal?
You may be on a roll

I miss when you were human
'Cause now you're seemingly perfect
And that soul you have won't put down its guns
I miss when you were real
When words travel though you, do you feel?
A year ago your heart, it ran
Back when you were human

Piece your life together again
Once your time here is up and then
Where are all your friends?
Who do you call friends?
All good things must come crashing down
What did you sacrifice to hear the sound?
Your name it resounds

I miss when you could see me
Eyes on you, forget me
Track Name: Cards
What's your stance on letting go, letting go?
I just need to know
I wish I could just know
What's a dream worth? Let it go, let it go
Don't let it break your soul
Sometimes you have to pay a toll

What's the price to pay to be pleased with ourselves?
How far should we push to have it all?
How far will we push to have it all?

What's your life worth? Let it go, let it go
Losing control
Only one chance to say no
Who's to blame here? Let it go, let it go
How'd you get this low? Oh I know
You can't stop, you won't drop
But you're falling straight down from the top

What's the price to pay to be pleased with ourselves?
How far should we push to have it all?
What's the meaning of all these cards we are dealt?
Now we're all in, burning out until we fall

What's your stance on letting go
I just need to know
