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

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

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

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?

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

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
