Track Name: Burning Bridges
I'll load my guns
And I'll load these words as well
To make your headphones scream the lines
I could never tell
Use my words as ammunition
And the barrel is pen
This song will be a bullet
Stuck in your head

Burning bridges
Never seemed so cold
It never seemed too old
To picture you jumping off of one

Take this with
A grain of salt
And dump them on your cuts
It's the anatomy of a tongue in cheek
Dissect it if it means that much
(If it means that much to you)

Burning bridges
Never seemed so cold
It never seemed too old
To picture you jumping off of one

Burning bridges
Never seemed so cold
It never seemed too old
(It never seemed too old) x2
To picture you jumping off of one
Track Name: Bodies
I guess it's time again
Where I sit down and see
Exactly what my life
Has ever done for me
And I know I should live
This stupid life I have
Choices I won't forgive
I'll figure out my plan

My life
Is bringing me down
It's not the same as before
Let's switch
Our lives around
You live mine and I'll live yours

And I remember you
Adventure peers at me
The fucked things you do
The stress engulfing me
And I know what to do
Rapid thoughts in my head
You haven't got a clue
I've figured out my plan


My life
Is bringing me down
It's not the same as before
Let's switch
Our lives around
You live mine and I'll live yours

I've made a huge mistake
No one can hear my plea
The loss of life inside
I think it's killing me
I lust for my old self
The way I see me now
I just don't understand
These things I can't allow


My life
Is bringing me down
It's not the same as before
Let's switch
Our lives around
You live mine and I'll live yours
Track Name: nevermore
You left me for another
We're not like any other
It's okay when you had a boyfriend
All backdoors and hidden places
So you told me that you loved me
That we'd have our own bright future
Just give me time hun
I promise that I'll end it

Don't tell me that it's over x2

Well bitch you got my hopes up
And you finally did it
No more back doors and secret lies
We can be together
Then I learned it's all a lie
You denied it ever happened
You bitch you stole my heart
And then you took my soul

Don't tell me that it's over x3
(When it never started)

I don't know what I did
But I did it
I don't know what to do
Or how to get rid of it
It sticks to me
Wherever I go
It follows me
Like my shadow
Don't tell me that it's over
(Don't tell me)
Don't tell me that it's over
(Don't tell me that it's over)
Track Name: It's About Time
My tongue dances pirouettes
Hoping to catch itself on the words
Stuck in the back of my throat
And I,
I'm sure I'll find the words at the bottom of a bottle
If the words can't flood out of my mouth by then

It's about time
That I realize with my real eyes
That every little excuse
At the time
Can't be right
If it leaves thoughts left behind

Why am I paralyzed
By the game of gain and losses?
Tossed between the motion and the notion
It's 'cause I, I'm part of a philosophy so unorthodox
With paradoxes and paradigms
(With paradigms)

It's about time
That I realize with my real eyes
That every little excuse
At the time
Can't be right
If it leaves thoughts left behind

It's about time
Track Name: Therapy
Questions flying
Lying on the bench
As I slowly come to life
Oh how these 45 pass us by
I'm addicted to the cure
For an age-old loneliness
And I poison myself in vain attempts
To feel the bittersweet nostalgia again

I'm the invisible man
Trying to catch my reflection
And all the scars that you left
Are the doctor's prescription

My smile is an open wound
And everyone wants to see me bleed
Give me therapy
'Cause life never wanted me

I'm a tempest in a teacup
A delicate disaster about to break
I'm a tempest in a teacup
A delicate disaster and now I break

I'm addicted to the cure
For an age-old loneliness
And I poison myself in vain attempts
To feel the bittersweet nostalgia again

I'm addicted to the cure x2

I'm the invisible man
Trying to catch my reflection
And all the scars that you left
Are the doctor's prescription
Track Name: Bond
A tongue in cheek
It beats a heart on a sleeve
But my heart doesn't beat at all
So I keep my tongue tied
To keep it from falling out
I keep my misery company
We watch as the words play back to me
Sometimes he'll join in
Misery plays on my heart strings

If only
Misery could play my symphonies
If only
Misery could play my symphonies

I've built up these walls
Locked myself in alone
These walls I call home
Made from writers' blocks
Watch these pictures crawl
Onto barren walls
I'm painting a picture
But I'm drawing a blank

If only
Misery could play my symphonies
If only
Misery could play my symphonies

If only
Misery could play my symphonies
If only
Misery could play my symphonies
Play my symphonies
