Bleed for You
The cold concrete cuts against her back
And her spirit spills with blood onto the pavement
Hands tied so tight behind her neck
And a silence falls, and everything changes
And everything dies, to you nothing痴 alive, to you anymore
I guess you've gotten more than you might have wanted

If I could take your pain away
I would scream for you
I would bleed for you
So you値l never feel this way
Again when you池e in my arms
I would scream for you
I will bleed for you

She drowns herself until the images erase
But the skin is bruised all along her thighs
Nightmares repeat refrain the memories of pain
In mental photographs haunting all the time so
She shuts her eyes, to you she tries to hide
From you, she falls asleep into dreams where she is safe

If I could take your pain away
I would scream for you
And I値l bleed for you
So you値l never feel this way
Again when you池e in my arms
I would scream for you
I will bleed for you

Put the weight on my shoulders
And the pain in my heart
Tie the knots in my stomach and you値l let it tear me apart.
So tear me apart.
So I could be everything you need

And this silence strips me bare,
and your body pins me down.
I've never been so scared to breathe,
afraid to make a sound.
And all I know is you'll never let me go..
Just kick and scream, bite and bleed,
and make believe it's all a dream.back to top
Ashes Ashes
I hope this terrifies you
A moral suicide which burns inside you
Never, will never let you out
Until you realize, knee deep
Or buried alive in lies

Go, go, go believe
Is everything you need
Take everything for granted
Distorting every memory
You take them as your own
You like it when you know
Just what I知 thinking

I hope this terrifies you
A moral suicide which burns inside you
Never, will never let you out
Until you realize, knee deep
Or buried alive in lies
This time I won稚 let you in

Just scream like a child
Act like children
Who run from their problems
Blurring the visions we set, in our sights
(So what would you like)
Strain our eyes...

Kids are screaming at the tops of their lungs
While they're pointing their fingers like they're loaded guns
Behind curtains and backdrops
The fire sparks
If the bridges burn, we all fall down
We all fall down
We all fall down
We all fall down
We all fall down

So I hope this terrifies you
I know it terrifies you
I値l be ok, just go, just go
(Let the bridges burn)
As we all fall down
I値l be ok
Let the bridges burn
We all fall down
I値l be ok
Let the bridges burn
We all fall downback to top
A Minor Detail
Step up to the plate to play the game
Seem self equipped to play it safe

Step up to the plate to play the game
Seem self equipped to play it safe
And the boy痴 got skills, the girl痴 got notion
Smart enough but he lacks devotion
Your reasons ramble and your rhymes keep scheming
But it痴 not enough so just keep on dreaming along
And I know you値l, you値l never make it on your own
And I know you値l never get it right
You only take this so far, then leave it all behind
So tonight, I知 making up my mind
Before we take this too far and leave it all behind

So rise up to the occasion cause your robbing schemes,
no explanation, got minor details filling these gaps
And your memory, so just trace your footsteps
Back to where this all started, before you got yourself broken-hearted, now
Just keep it right there cause you値l, you値l never figure it out
And I know you値l never get it right
You only take this so far, then leave it all behind
So tonight, I知 making up my mind
Before we take this too far and leave it all behind

Yeah, I miss you and I知 going to sing you a song tonight
And I miss you and I知 going to sing you a song
One more chance to get this right, one more chance to get it right
One more chance to get this right, so never, get it right
I know you値l never get it right
You only take this so far, then leave it all behind (get it right)
So tonight, I知 making up my mind (get it right)
You know you make this so hard to leave it all behind

Step up to the plate to play the game
Seem self equipped to play it safeback to top
The Point
My voice is tired I can barely speak a whisper
These words clear our minds
And these broken bottles and glasses
Heal our lives
So drinks to the skies and blood to your eyes
This rooftop is understanding
Swallow your pride or choke till you die
Cause this fall is unforgiving

So call on your angels to catch your fall tonight
I'm crawling on my hands
Pouring out my insides

I'll wait for you
Hoping you change your mind
Hoping is all I can do

These days are tired
And these nights are overwhelming
As we spoke through silence
A routine silence with nothing more to say except
Drinks to the skies and blood to your eyes
I'll be understanding tonight

I'm dying cause you're leaving
Hopes abandoned and my heart still beating
But I never gave up trying
I did everything for you
I did everythingback to top
Twenty Below
This puzzled look you send to me
Says "You've put me back together"
Her head's down
She waits impatiently
Scattered in my heart-
Torn up and ripped apart
It's ripped apart

Just wait and you'll see you're everything I want
And don't take this from me
Just wait and you'll see you're everything I want
Don't take this from me
No
[From me]
[Yeah yeah yeah]

The wind's still in my face
I'm still staggering through
I'm closer to the ground
Than I will ever get to you
Dig deep beneath my fingernails
I'm gripping to the floor
I'm searching through the world
Always looking for something more
Just wait and and see you're everything I want
Don't take this from me
Just wait and and see you're everything I want
Don't take this from me
[No]

The way these cold winds and ice
Without you next to me
It feels like twenty below
Frostbite on my heart
This pain and suffering
Are feelings that you don't know

Doesn't it feel like
To feel like twenty belowback to top
Garden Statement
the traffic's backed for miles
on this quiet suburban road
while the rubber necking strangers
are dying to see these victims wounds
cause he's alone
his notebooks and poems
writing something great when he wrote
unlocked his secrets
as they became his lyrics
with no intent to show anyone

we gave, we give
but it's all for nothing, it's all for nothing
we try, we exist to nothing
everything but it's all for nothing

so the panic sets in cycles
his mind for restless sleep
and while the blood seeking leeches contaminate every life they lead
just leave him alone in this dark room
it's like she slightly wrapped her coat
this is her secret
i fucking need this
like i don't need anyone

we gave, we give
but it's all for nothing, it's all for nothing
we try, we exist to nothing
everything but it's all for nothing
[x2]

it's like i've fallen asleep with my eyes open
shutting down and off the lights
cause after all of this it's all or nothing
still i wouldn't try to

i'll fall asleep with my eyes open
shutting down and off the lights
cause after all of this its all or nothing
still i wouldn't try to fight
(and the lights are on you again
like the sight you never saw
and he bleeds for you
and he lets you out
cause you don't know anymore)

so let me drown so i can breathe again
i'm through choking and suffocating on alter egos and alter motives
just weigh you down and take control of
the way you are, the things that you need
the life you live and the dreams that you dream
the sudden blur all in slow motion
the broken down and now youre broken
(spill the ink and spill your guts again) [x7]
and it's sadder than the saddest movie
i ever saw but without the good
and so i stopped watching
i stopped caring
i lost all interest and i stopped wearing
this plastic smile
just wash my hands clean
i guess that you forgot about me
and i'm living like the big city feeling
it's better than the suburban dreaming
(spill the ink and spill your guts again) [x7]
living on the great salvation
talk shit on me like i don't know who
who my real friends are
anymore no
well i don't know you anymore
and it's sadder than the saddest movie
i ever saw but without the beauty
so i stopped watching
and i stopped caring

SPILL THE INK AND SPILL YOUR GUTS AGAIN!

fall asleep with my eyes open
shutting down and off the lights
cause after all of this its all for nothing
still i wouldn't try to fight
(and the lights are on you again
like the sight you never saw
and he bleeds for you
and he lets you out
cause you don't know anymore)back to top
The Innocent Ones
Long goodbyes and second chances
Forgiving all we fight for, forgetting all we lose
Cause we're losing it on the way things happen
Doing all we do to fill up the quiet
Break the awkward silence consuming our lives
We're spending our time keeping our distance
And speaking trivial, and trite.

And I'll find some way to cut myself open, over and over again
And I'll find some way to bury it all

And so let's be honest because I am through holding my breath as my lungs breathe for you
The air is too thin inside this room

I need this like the water in my lungs
The drowning in silence, biting my restless tongue
Because we're too consumed, too shallow
Playing the victims, playing the innocent ones

And I'll find some way to cut myself open, over and over again
And I'll find some way to bury it all

And so let's be honest because I am through holding my breath as my lungs breathe for you
The air is too thin inside this room (I'm taking my last breathe for you, this life is leaving)
And so let's be honest because I am through breaking my heart, this is life is leaving
The air is too thin inside this room

(So go, breathe in the air, we've been gasping for air, so go breathe in everything I am)

(And so let's be honest because I am through holding my breath as my lungs breathe for you)back to top
American Classic
This pressure is too much to take.
Every bend reaches a break,
but that's a sore subject.
its time to get your head checked.
you can't keep dwelling on every
moment that slipped by because
with every sunset comes a sunrise
we don't know or care where we go
just turn up that radio
we'll sing along to all our favorite songs
and hope these interstates will go
on and on and on.

So long sincerity, escape your mind
its your save haven from reality
but it's okay it didn't mean much anyway
to me.

It seems like just yesterday.
when we would stay up late out on your front lawn
talking about where we've been and all
the places we're going.
we would lose track of time watching
cars pass us by and I would sneak back
home before the sunrise
and how everyday would seem so long
and every night would go
on and on and on

So long sincerity, escape your mind
its your save haven from reality
but it's okay it didn't mean much anyway
to me.

Still bleeding from these back stabbed scars
young boys dying in an old mans war
and your sympathy cant take that away.

so long sincerity, escape from reality.back to top
In Memory
This feeling never dies, the fever never breaks
It sinks into your skin, and drips across your face
It speaks to me, telling me your terrified of this disease
Cause you look so weak, as it's slipping through your body
And tearing through me

And these are your last words, "I'm sorry"
Right before my eyes, can't believe this is goodbye
Keep staring right into my eyes, and look at me for the last time

So empty but your lies are filled with empathy
Be careful with your words, save your energy
Speak to me, cause I'm so terrified
I know whats happening, be strong for me
Because it's so easy to die, when it's so hard to breathe

To see you suffering,
Oh my god I think its killing me

And these are your last words, "I'm sorry"
Right before my eyes, can't believe this is goodbye

If this is the last time, I've never been so terrified
If this is the last time, I'll never look in your eyesback to top
Top 5 Addictions
Just keep coughing, smoke another cigarette
Dream another big dream, just live and regret
So fuck the warning signs, I'm already dead inside
Dying for a feeling to say goodbye (say good night)
I won't let you let me go this time it's all I have
Keep screaming, no one's listening
Now I'm tired, reaching out for anything
Screaming for attention, oh my god something's gotta give
Focused in black and white living like the colorblind, every sense feeling
A reason to save my life
I won't let you let me go this time it's all I have
Keep screaming, no one's listening
And I won't let you let me go this time it's all I have
I'll give up all I have, since you are everything
This is all I ever needed to save my life, never open my eyes
I can't let you let me go
I won't let you let me go this time it's all I have
Keep screaming, no one's listening
And I won't let you let me go this time it's all I haveback to top
Halcyon Daze
So assuming this weekend there's a part of me thats thinkin of coming up to join you
You know I sure wouldnt want to.. Ruin all your chances on your one night stand romances
Doing tequila shots, I always loved you but it was never enough

And while your licking salt off of each other
Know that I'll be wishing
Throwing some over my shoulder

Hoping for sores to form upon your lips
So the alcohol burns warm with every sip
Are you burning now?
I'll dial 911 emergency, to cool you, cool you down

And when you wake tommorow morning with a hang over from hell
Don't bother calling me, theres no need for you to kiss and tell
Because tonight will be my night, I'm calling all my friends
The boys are going out tonight

The potion in our bottles it will be singing to me sleep
The world at the bottom, it's taunting me to be a creep

It says "Hey man, stand up for yourself"
"Hey man, I got a plan for you, it's working oh so well"

I picked up the pay phone and I held the zero down
Please operator, collect call to Allentown
The call came back rejected, but that operator was kind
Enough to talk to me and get me through to the middle of.. (The night)

Yeah, so tonight, will be my night
I'm calling all my friends, the boys are going out tonight.back to top
Bleed for You
The cold concrete cuts against her back
And her spirit spills with blood onto the pavement
Hands tied so tight behind her neck
And a silence falls, and everything changes
And everything dies, to you nothing痴 alive, to you anymore

If I could take your pain away

She drowns herself until the images erase
But the skin is bruised all along her thighs
Nightmares repeat refrain the memories of pain
In mental photographs haunting all the time so

Tie the knots in my stomach and you値l let it tear me apart.
So tear me apart.
So I could be everything you need

And this silence strips me bare,
and your body pins me down.
I've never been so scared to breathe,

And all I know is you'll never let me go..
Just kick and scream, bite and bleed,
