Track Name: When You Hit the Bottom
Strip away all the threads
Pick me up drain the fluid
I’m giving it a rest
You needed something and I
Could never get right the first time
And now theres nothing left

So tell me what here is mine
Looking back now through your own eyes

Something was eating away like a sin
We all want the same things
But we'e not on the same page
Don’t you remember when you told me this
“Never ask the question
Kus we don’t need the answers”
Don’t feel bad if you have forgotten
I’ll meet you when you hit the bottom

Rounding corners of mine
Takes the edge off of this life
Still getting in too deep
An empty vessel at best
Keeps a beating in my chest
It has me to believe

We could have all been too blind
Only staring up to the sky

I’ll meet you when you hit the bottom
I'll meet you

You wan’t me to be myself
Kus you’ve heard from someone else
I’ve never been this low
Based off what you don’t know
We’ll see how the weekend goes
I’ve learned to lose controll

So lets drive away now (so lets drive away)
Lets drive away now (so lets drive away)
Track Name: One Conversation
I’m out on a limb to let you know
How this whole thing begins
Kus I’ll let you in but that don't fix up what happened
Keep breaking the glass, it happens fast
Seems inevitable, while you’re making sure
Whats in the past feels so comfortable

Apologies gone, imagining that
Its gonna get complicated
Its gotta feel right we’re gonna be so sedated

Lets get used to one conversation that we’ve had before
We can say that this whole thing blows over
I’ll keep in mind what i want to mention
Try hard to avoid the attention

So you get to win, its on my chin
I’m a gentleman, but
You won’t forget when i won’t let you
If i can help it

I’m picking you up and dropping you off
Depending on confrentation
Outdating ourselves and counting on
Disposition

Lets get used to one conversation that we’ve had before
We can say that this whole thing blows over
I’ll keep in mind what i want to mention
Try hard to avoid the attention
Deep in my best of intentions
They don’t need Devine Intervention

(I’m letting you In)
I’m out on a limb and now i know
How this whole thing goes
(I’m letting you in)
I let you in but that won’t fix us

Let’s get used to one conversation
Let’s get used to one conversation
I got used to once conversation
That we’ve had before
Track Name: Meant to Sink
What started out as friendship
Somehow turned to enemies
You started charging interest
And talking business with my family
But you never mentioned
You’re intentions or false integridy
I don’t need permission
To make decisions rationally

You can have my past
But don’t think that i want it back

You found the spot where i can’t swim
With your words you threw me in
Now I’m searching for the way out
No i won’t let you tell me who to be
You’re words never set you free
I’ll keep searching for the way out

So take the benefit of life with no regret
Now we don’t have to drag this further out
Kus you’ve laid behind your mind
And you’ve given up the choice
Theres nothing left to talk about

I don’t think this could be, to me
Something we could work out
Don’t think this could be
Something we should work out
Track Name: Keyhole
Do you shut the blinds and dim the lights down?
Knowing that the worst is in your bed
Kus i can’t escape dramatic endings
That have been awake, that are in my head
If those days are gone they’re not long forgotten
Some things can get ahold of you
A nervous wreck with paranoyia
Obsessive needs, anxieties
And you thought that you could get it out of me

When I leave will you close the window
I might turn around, I don’t want to go
Until I see you through the keyhole
And make sure that it’s not a show

And to think of when you take off your disguise
I wonder what you’ve done a thousand times
Kus i dream the worst and wake up to my fears
Right now I’m accusing you of lies
Age 24, can’t take this anymore
Kus i’ve payed the toll to know I’m not free
Let me be…

When I leave will you close the window
I might turn around, I don’t want to go
Until I see you through the keyhole
And make sure that it’s not a show
Its the only thing that I’ve ever known

They’ve got you planting seeds
We’re all just human beans
Cut down by somebody’s dreams
Track Name: You and I
It fell on me to take a break
We didn’t want to make mistakes
That all of our parents warned us about
It’s not like me to know what i want
Before i work out things I’ve lost
But now theres distance, timing
All to keep reminding me of you

Kus you and I corrispond in the same way
Spell it out to pronounce what the words say
I’m a wreck I’ll admit but it hit me
I was wrong you were right where you should be
It always takes you by surprise
I would have never thought you and I

No sign of closure in this doubt
Theres only pages we’ve left out
Like i should know what their about
A boy that needs to get a grip
Someone can handle when you trip
I just need someone there to keep on
Rewinding me, I forget

Does everyone get lost in this?
We let it take our innocence
But you and I felt something
In finding out we’re nothing

Kus everyone gets lost in this
They let it take their innocence
But you and I felt something
In finding out we’re nothing

(Always right where you should be, Everyone)
Track Name: Habits
You’re right, when I’m mad
When I’ve fallen short from my aptitude
And i know that i have
Given it to you with my attitude

Thats one personality
One self inflicted tragedy
But hey, I accamadate

I wondered off way to far and let this happen
I plan to drop most of it off with the habits
I’m only gonna say i can stop and you’ve noticed
I’ll never know how far is wrong
I’m gonna want back when I’m gone

Fall on your knees, begging for this to take another
Call if you need, I’ve always been there and you've got my number
Ring let it ring, everyone acts like they’re way too busy
Trust if you must, I don’t think that this does involve them

How much is enough before you think you have a problem
I think we have a problem

I’ll never want that ‘till I’m wrong
I’m gone, I’m gone, I’m just a number
I’m just another one, when this is over
Will i come undone
I’m just a number so please take another one
Kus this is over and I’ve come undone
Track Name: Please Let Me Go
You’ve got me torn apart
I don’t want to let you down
But I’ve gone too far to turn around
If thats all that you believe
You’ll find out eventually
That some things aren’t meant to leave the ground

Kus you get washed up waiting patiently
For life to turn out the way it should be
And if you want to take that all away
I’d say you don’t know a thing about me
It must be nice to feel aloud

So won’t you please let me go
Keep telling me how to change this
I don’t want to face it
Now that i know
Theres nothing here, nothing left
Everybody can forget
So please let me go

So take what you said before
Kus already Im out the door
You don’t even have to shut me out
And that one thing that you had
I won’t ever want it back
With this sort of room to feel alive

If you push away all the things you love
Trust me they won’t forget what you’ve done
And don’t say you can take that all away
I’ll say you don’t know a thing about me
It must be hard to figure out

So won’t you please let me go
Keep telling me how to change this
I don’t want to face it
Now that i know
Theres nothing here, nothing left
Everybody can forget
Please let me go
My whole life’s been a promise that I’ve had to break
So please let me go
I’ve lead you on for as long as i could ever take back

You could take this all away
Wash it down the drain
I’ll make sure you never get me wrong

Well it must be nice to feel alive
(It must be nice feel aloud)
It must be hard to figure out
(It must be)
Track Name: Your Fault
Define the rhythm that we go through
Lets keep it dialed on stand-by
Untangle knots in my brain
Lets see what happens when we go to
Cycle on whats always been fine
I hear a sound but its faint

So contagious
Simultaneous
And its taking us

Kus its not your fault, i can’t explain
I promised you that i could change
Its not your fault, I can’t explain
I promise you, thought i could

And i remember feeling taken
By anything that had a reason
Leading to why we exist
But when you take away the feeling
Its kind of hard to find the meaning
I think we’re kids being kids

Burning out alive
Running out of time
And we multiply

Kus its not your fault, i can’t explain
I promised you that i could change
Its not your fault, I can’t explain
I promise you, that i could

Suddenly you search for me but I’ve become the absentee
The things we called emergencies have now become the currencies
Aimlessly, intentional
You always set yourself to fall
It will destroy us all...
Track Name: Scrape the Bowl
A chip on the old block, the shoulder
From pushing up a boulder
From the sea top to the Asphalt
Its making me feel older

Is it one thing that you hate
That we did yesterday
So quit trying now, we’re drying out

Some of us win the lotto and some of us scrape the bowl
One of us gets to smile when the other ones miserable
I’m gonna get back the bottle we buried outside the car
We can trade back tomorrow and we can be who we are

Wearing a time bomb to your wrist watch
It makes my fingers criss cross
Theres a sunset on a moodswing
A memory to scrape off

How did we get so discontent
That i need to disconnect
We’re not trying now, not trying now.

We could be anywhere but we’re here
Keep breaking up in sight, theres no more appetite

So none of win the lotto and none of us scrape the bowl
Does one of us get to smile? is everyone miserable?
I’m gonna get back the bottle we buried outside the car
We can trade back tomorow and maybe its not too far
Track Name: Basement Floors
It wasn’t this but now it is and I can live with that
The quiet space deteriorates it peels the layers back
Theres finally a mission twisted up with intuition
Directing me to open doors reflected off my basement floors

Don’t you think that we could take it off when its on my nerves?
I know, I’m getting what i deserve.

Waiting on what never does is always disappointing us
I try my best it weighs you down i can’t lift up a thousand pounds
So ill be in your fixture split the hairs and take your picture
I'm shedding light You’re losing skin
Are you still fine? Do we fit in?

Don’t you think that we could take it off when its on my nerves?
I know, I’m getting what i deserve. Why am i giving it back?
Don’t move we can wait until somebody will calm me down
But nobody can talk me out
No, theres nothing to talk about

The rest was all that i could give to you
Its a lie at best, its something i can’t live up to
So we’ll try our best
Theres something i can give to you
I’m taking off whats on my nerves
I’m giving back what you deserve
Track Name: The Pieces
You’ve got me torn apart
I don’t want to let you down
But I’ve gone too far to turn around
If thats all that you believe
You’ll find out eventually
That some things aren’t meant to leave the ground

Kus you get washed up waiting patiently
For life to turn out the way it should be
And if you want to take that all away
I’d say you don’t know a thing about me
It must be nice to feel aloud

So won’t you please let me go
Keep telling me how to change this
I don’t want to face it
Now that i know
Theres nothing here, nothing left
Everybody can forget
So please let me go

So take what you said before
Kus already Im out the door
You don’t even have to shut me out
And that one thing that you had
I won’t ever want it back
With this sort of room to feel alive

If you push away all the things you love
Trust me they won’t forget what you’ve done
And don’t say you can take that all away
I’ll say you don’t know a thing about me
It must be hard to figure out

So won’t you please let me go
Keep telling me how to change this
I don’t want to face it
Now that i know
Theres nothing here, nothing left
Everybody can forget
Please let me go
My whole life’s been a promise that I’ve had to break
So please let me go
I’ve lead you on for as long as i could ever take back

You could take this all away
Wash it down the drain
I’ll make sure you never get me wrong

Well it must be nice to feel alive
(It must be nice feel aloud)
It must be hard to figure out
(It must be)
