Track Name: Intro
When i see those words, the pit of my stomach clenches tight.
My hands start to tremble and eyes ignite
Overwhelmed, and before i know it i'm back where i started again.
Track Name: Make Amends
Verse:
this is my sanctuary.
this is my humble abode.
it might not be very stable,
but it beats the grounds that you call your home.
i'm begging you not to look me in the eyes that i look through,
and ask me all my reasons why i did what i did,
but its something i knew was right.

chorus:
don't try to make amends when your walls fall down.
don't pretend you can save yourself,
until you pick yourself up off the ground.
it'll be too late when you finally wake up and see everything.
everything you loved burned to the ground.

bridge:
burned to the ground
you think you know me,
but you don't know a thing.
you think you know me,
but you don't know a thing.

pre verse:
i'll tell you once and i'll tell you again
nothing good can come from this.

verse:
your actions speak louder than the words you preach,
but your lack of action proves that back then
you were clearly misunderstood.
i can see right through your pretty words,
and i'm pretty sure that your audience isn't oblivious,
and they can see it too.

pre chorus:
you are a thief, a liar, and a cheat.
i wont believe you, you wont believe me.
you are deserving, why wont you admit defeat?


chorus:
don't try to make amends when your walls fall down.
don't pretend you can save yourself,
until you pick yourself up off the ground.
it'll be too late when you finally wake up.
Track Name: Level Headed
Intro:
that familiar lingering feeling
carved into the back of your mind
suspicious, and i pried.
when will i see the day
you wont hold it all inside?

verse 1:
how could you be so oblivious?
the sound of your voice far from convincing
you failed to see how you fell short of inconspicious.

pre chorus:
still got that sour taste in my mouth,
my instinct to drown myself in guilt.
i can't understand why you won't
crush the front you built.

chorus:
do you remember the day you told me
the words you spoke had different meaning?
i felt that swelling in my chest,
and you say i always over react
but maybe my words just never made an impact.
you took them for granted my view was slanted
now i'm level headed once again.

pre verse:
feelings changing like the seasons
refusal to give legitimate reason
no justification for faltered action
constant awareness of your distraction

verse 2:
easy to predict you wouldn't change for the better
can't look in your eyes anymore
i'm always one step ahead of the weather
finished facing the eye of the storm,
but you kept changing your form

chorus:
i cant forget the day you told me
the words you spoke had different meaning?
i felt that swelling in my chest
and you say i always over react
but maybe my words just never made an impact
you took them for granted my view was slanted

breakdown:
I'm level headed once again
Track Name: Sun's Out, Gun's out
verse:
i'm forcing the feeling, it's for the best.
closure within my self, what i need to invest all my time in
why should i clench my fist, or bar my teeth?
where's my slack? i need some clarity.

chorus:
Inspiration is hard to come by, and writers block always stunts the growth.
The way i feel right here and now is how i feel the most.

pre verse:
It's low tide tonight as you're trying to balance on the sands of your life

verse:
look at my reflection, and forced my doubts down my throat.
send my thoughts back in my head.
no words to be said.

stomp:
I swing as hard as i can
to break my fist on these walls
that surround my life.
they mean nothing at all.

chorus:
Inspiration is hard to come by, and writers block always stunts the growth.
this is how i feel the most.

outro:
everybody leaves, eventually.
it was always the wrong time.
it took me until now to find myself.
i hate it when you change.
my life starts to rearrange
maybe they're getting older,
while i'll still stay the same.
