Track Name: Haunted
What do you think about
when you're alone?
I need some new ideas
I'm running out of hope

I watched your spirit escape
Through your mouth
It lingers here
In this haunted house.

Don't let who I am
Destroy what you are.
Track Name: When you know the answer (but don't raise your hand)
No matter how much you're given
It is never enough
And final conclusions
Are all but drawn

So what was the answer?
Did you know it all along?
Did you know it all along?

I think we're too far gone

I know that I'm not supposed to
But I can't help but love you
Despite threats of impending doom
And disaster [is] overdue

Won't be surprised when it happens
It'll be my own fault
I tied my laces together
I'm waiting to fall

I think we're too far gone

So just hold me
Make me forget
All the panic
As it sets in

I am caught in
Your crosshairs
Pull the trigger
And I'm not there

Feel the bullet
Of your cold gaze
As it passes
Right through me

And your love is
Just like the sun
Hurts to look at
Hurts more to touch
Track Name: Parlor Trick
I wrote this song on
The back of a Christmas card
"Keep up the good work son"
I'll try my best but it's hard

When deep down I know
This is not what I want
And everyday spent lying to myself
Just reinforces these thoughts

Just another parlor trick
I'm tired of this shit
Just another parlor trick
And I'm tired

Foregone conclusions
Have laid me to rest
You dug this grave kid
Now lie in it

At least I still have
My fantasies
Of being someone who
Is worth trying to be

Just another parlor trick
I'm tired of this shit
Just another parlor trick
And I'm tired

Make this nightmare go away
There's just some things
that will never change

I think about them everyday
There's just some things
That will never change
Track Name: Forever Discontent
I'm moving forward
Been awhile since I could say that
And I'm using your words
As a guide to show me the path

But it's never enough
Forever discontent
With the things I've done
And the things I've said

And I'm making progress
I guess that's something at least
But I'll never forget
The person who I used to be

But it's never enough
Forever discontent
With the things I've done
And the things I've said

Never looking back again
Cause I can't change what I did
Won't lose sleep over what I can't control
I'm growing up and I'm getting old

You say I'm never content
Is it really so bad?
Track Name: Safe in Orbit
Burning up on re-entry
systems fail, alarms sound
reality approaches
or maybe it is just the ground

I steered this ship off course
I led your love astray
I don't deserve to live
So I die today.

Don't cry for me.

Life is gone
The credits roll
The theater clears
I'm miserable

Trying not
To think about
The thoughts of you
Inside my house

When we used
to smoke and sit
It didn't matter
what we did

Cause I had you
And you had me
I fucked it up
I lost the dream

Out of ashes
I will rise
A better man
a better life

The only way
To honor you
Is fix the things
That killed the crew

Oh Katy you have such nice skin
We're falling to earth again.
Oh Katy you have such nice skin
Crashing down like a lonely comet
