We drove our van into the sunlight To a home we would build ourselves We could use a little help Snuggle up into your makeshift bedroom Cover up with the smoke you found It's the only piece of home you'll have for a while now (For a while now) I'm running home when everyone's running away I'm running home I'm running home when everyone's running away I'm running home Wake to a new smell every morning A cup of tea to share A thousand miles to go I need a change of air Pile into the place you call home Cover up with the smoke you found It's the only piece of home you'll have for a while now (For a while now) I'm running home when everyone's running away I'm running home I'm running home when everyone's running away I'm running home I'm running home when everyone's running away I'm running home

Steadfast 03:25
Don't tell stories your eyes can't tell No, you can't tell stories your eyes can't tell Don't tell stories your eyes can't tell Or you'll find yourself writing a lonely tale You tell the stories but can't remember the smell The look in your eye says it was never yours to tell Add in every detail write it in your poetry I bet your fingerprint was never found on the scene Don't tell stories your eyes can't tell No, you can't tell stories your eyes can't tell Don't tell stories your eyes can't tell Or you'll find yourself writing a lonely tale Don't tell stories your eyes can't tell No, you can't tell stories your eyes can't tell Don't tell stories your eyes can't tell Or you'll find yourself writing a lonely tale Where is the whiskey The pills you say you never take You say you can never sleep Some things never change You hide where your dreams lie you hide from everything You lie about your love and lost And the needles in her teeth Why do you lie? Where do you lie? Why do you lie? Where do you lie? Don't tell stories your eyes can't tell No, you can't tell stories your eyes can't tell Don't tell stories your eyes can't tell Or you'll find yourself writing a lonely tale Don't tell stories your eyes can't tell No, you can't tell stories your eyes can't tell Don't tell stories your eyes can't tell Or you'll find yourself writing a lonely tale Why do you lie? Where do you lie? Why do you lie? Where do you lie?

Pools 02:12
Don't call me fucking darling I'm not yours to name Don't hold me to your standards Your self-created dream Don't call me your damn baby doll If your intention is to hold me In a pool of false assumption Of what a man should be What's your problem? Are you wanting me to hold your hand? My problem lies within your hopes, my god You scream for my attention Don't hold me to your standards Your self-prescribed projection Your self-created dream You say it's not your fault I should let you be the man you wanna be I watched you grab the rope and wrap it around my throat This is a pool of false assumption of what a man should be

Drug 02:29
I gave you the choice of morals A bigger pocket takes the cake As long as you don't have to look at my face This bitter taste won't last for long You spit it out You're afraid to go home You're afraid that they'll know I'm afraid that I'm wrong He's afraid you're too cold So drag drag drag me by my feet Collect the coins that fall from me You can't come clean Where you stand the grass is dead From the footsteps your parents left This deniable storm has just begun Do you see it yet Do you feel it yet I hope your knees ache forever now This valuable show has just begun Is your voice gone yet You're afraid to go home You're afraid that they'll know I'm afraid that I'm wrong He's afraid you're too cold So drag drag drag me by my feet Collect the coins that fall from me You can't come clean Where you stand the grass is dead From the footsteps your parents left

Looming 02:45
I'm living in the shadow I once was A former being where my heart was beating Can't live up to the shadow I once was Everyone stop pulling my strings I refuse to say the words I used to scream Exposing everything This cup of tea won't last forever I have to give up I tried hiding from the person I once was A stranger looming in the shadow Stop looking for the ghost you'll never find The awful feeling of her creeping down your throat I refuse to say the words I used to scream Exposing everything This cup of tea won't last forever I have to give up I refuse to say the words I used to scream Exposing everything This cup of tea won't last forever I have to give up You are always looming You are always looming You are always looming You are always looming You are always looming You are always looming You are always looming You are.... I refuse to say the words I used to scream Exposing everything This cup of tea won't last forever I have to give up I refuse to say the words I used to scream Exposing everything This cup of tea won't last forever I have to give up
