Track Name: Escape From Tull
(Nat)
I saw that five eleven and I struggle to stay above that final inch.

(Nat/Rain)
Will I fall down
Or keep holding on
Will I fall down
Fuck

Will I fall down
Or keep holding on
Will I fall down
No

(Nat)
My future is so hazy
I need to stop and think

(Rain)
I tried
I swear
I tried
I failed

(Nat)
I can't explain, how it feels to watch your life fade away
Lost in my days, with no desire to stay awake
The days burn into weeks and the months just melted into years

(Nat)
I struggle to hold on to hold to hold on I struggle to hold on to hold on to what little i have left
(Rain)
I struggle to let go to let go to let go I struggle to let go to let go of what little I never had
Track Name: Not Finished Yet, Still Have Work To Do
(Nat)
Why does there have to be a discount from who I am and who I want to be
Your eyes are a mirror
I know it's hard to make a change but i can't live in stagnation
You're eyes are a mirror

Break through all the pain
You're eyes are a mirror
That holds me back
Your eyes are a mirror


The Cards don't lie in the stars
I have nothing to blame but myself
But I can no longer live in these black days
Must destroy myself to recreate

(Nat)
look in your eyes
I see myself
Living ashamed day to day
I look into your eyes
And see myself, living ashamed day to day
(Rain)
Live your life
Live it right
Live your life
Do what's right


(Rain)
To look, death in the face
Sheath your knife in his blood
I'm not finished


(Nat)
I walk through these days
And see your faces
Here for the same reason
Feeling left behind
Going home to black days
Wishing for a better future
We don't need to walk though these days alone

Why does there have to be a discount from who I am and who i want to be
Your eyes are a mirror
I know it's hard to make a change, but i can't live in stagnation
Your eyes are a mirror

Pray to the stars
That won't change who you are
Pray to the stars
That won't change who you are
Track Name: 2+2=5
(Rain)
You're beautiful
Throw a stone through so called perfection
And embrace your imperfections
For they Make you who you are

(Nat/Rain)
I want you to know
I want you to know
I want you to know
I want you to know

(Nat)
I remember the first time i saw your long brown hair and sad dark brown eyes
I couldn't find the air in my lungs to tell you, and I know you couldn't produce the words to say anything either
You go home all alone and I go home all alone and we stay awake lonely
I wish you/I could produce some words to say anything

Two broken hearts flat lining all alone
Two broken hearts flat lining all alone

(Nat)
I want you to know you're beautiful
beautiful
beautiful
beautiful
(Rain)
You are beautiful
You are beautiful
You are beautiful
You are beautiful
Track Name: Learning To Play The Violin
(Nat)
I remember hearing you name
i thought I'd never forget your voice
But that must have gone first
Shatter me

Every failing day, i worked hard
Starting with bricks and mortar
Around my heart, I've become unbreakable
But sorrowful and locked in my own prison

I need an escape
I need to breathe
i need to feel
I'm ready to scream and dissolve my world


Could you be the one to shatter my defenses
Could you be the one to open my eyes
Could you be the one to help me escape myself
Because my heart's starting to beat again lying next to you
And my defenses are melting away looking into your eyes
And I'm starting to scream again
And my hearts pounding at full speed
And I'm starting to believe in things just as if it was like for the first time
Track Name: You Can't Paint Over Dirt And Call It A New House
(Nat)
I stand here, in front of everyone, screaming inaudible words and the meaning gets lost
Everything gets lost in the verses the verses the verses, but everyone gets a show, and that's what they want to see
But I write the same song over and over and over again, and it doesn't make me feel any better
What a shitty form of therapy

(Rain)
I can feel the waves crashing and breaking against my body like a brick through a window
I'm trying to find the balance between keeping myself and my friends happy
I'm trying to find the balance but there is none
I'm trying to find the balance between keeping myself and my friends happy
I'm trying to find the balance but there is none
Am I who you want me to be, or am I who i want to be
I'll carve my own path over your weathered facade

(Nat)
I said it once but i'll say it again, we have no fucking clue what we're doing here.
It's just me versus my verses
If you hear one thing tonight, please do not clap, please do not cheer or smile.
Please do not applaud our sorrow
please let our songs end in silence
Because I think Hemingway had it right
I think Hemingway had the answer
He knew how to go

(Nat/Rain)
It's versus verses so watch me bleed
