Lyrics

1. Young And Aspiring

So lets not even try... you're right.
Let's ball it up and throw it out the window. It's becoming all so clear
In my mind.
I've thought this thing through more than once or twice. I feel that this
Is my last request to you.

Hold your breath.... bottle it up and save it for the next one. It's safe
To say we've been writing this
All night. None of this will ever change your mind. It's never safe to
Rely on borrowed
Time. Now we're both undone, and it's time to open
Up your eyes.

Consequence, it's our need in times like these.
Feeling free... it's our modern disease. Your a classic disaster, with a
Knack for losing your
Exterior. (I'm so sick)... from staring at the mirror.

This all needs a break from you, and I'm used to this.

I fear that I am just an end.
So you play the mistaken... and I'll play the victim in our screenplay of
Desire... I'm still writing the letters
I'll never send.

Running in circles I can't forget how many times
I've played this in my mind.... feeling free, feeling free.

Consequence, it's our need in times like these.
Feeling free... it's our modern disease. Your a classic disaster, with a
Knack for losing your exterior. (I'm so sick)... from

Staring at the mirror.

This is my panic... This is my call to arms.


2. A Boy Brushed Red.... Living In Black And White

Can you feel your heartbeat racing?
Can you taste the fear in her sweat?
You've done this wrong
It's too far gone
These sheets tell of regret
I admit that I'm just a fool for you
I am just a fool for you

Here is where we both go wrong
Tonight's your last chance to
Do exactly what you want to
And this could be my night
This is what makes me feel alive
Makes you feel alive
Here is where we both go wrong
So sign me up
And toss this key
'Cause for now we're
Living in this moment
And we both ignore the truth
Its all over
Its all over

I feel your heart against mine
So take a breath and close your eyes

[chorus]
Your lungs have failed and they both stopped breathing
My heart is dead and its way past beating
Something has gone terribly wrong
I'm scared, you're scared, we're scared of this
I never thought we'd make it out alive
I never told you but its all in your goodbyes
It's all in your goodbyes

Well look who's dying now
Slit wristless sleeping with the girl next door
I always knew you were such a sucker for that
It doesnt matter what you say
You never mattered anyway
Never mattered anyway

In this moment that we both ignore the truth
It's all over
It's all over
I feel your heart against mine
So take a breath and close your eyes

[chorus]

Don't shake, I hate to see you tremble
Trembling you've lost your touch
Haven't you run so addicted

[chorus]


3. The Impact Of Reason

Prop open the door I can actually see my breath tonight
But that doesn't mean I'm breathing
Crack a smile just for the sake of it
This could take a while
A long while

Silence is golden especially in this case

I'm not too sure that I want it to be this way
Open mouth closed eyes
No words are escaping

It's all a blur
It's too dark to see
Ain't it pretty the way it all streaks together at night
Together at night

I think its time to turn around
I really want to go home tonight
I think its time to turn around
I really want to go home tonight

I feel like this is going nowhere
I feel like this is going nowhere
Try to think of something quick
And trust the direction of the driver

No lights
No signs
I'm at a loss for words
No lights
No signs
I'm at a loss for words

Now conversation sparks
What an easy way to break the ice
Now conversation sparks
What an easy way to break the ice


4. Reinventing Your Exit

12th and hyde on a sunday
Feeling like were gold
And we're nothing short of invincible (INVICIBLE)

It starts again
Can you feel it
It takes your breath away
Stop saying that we're invincible
(it's round and round)
Youre uninviting, unrewarding
And I'm misinforming you
Misinforming you

We all want to be, wanna be somebody
Right now we're just looking for the exit

[chorus]
This is the way I would have done things
Up against the wall
Up against the wall
You've got me up against your wall
This is the way I would have done things
Up against the wall
Up against the wall
You've got me up against your wall

Its you and me on a monday
The lies that we told
This is were we both go numb now
You broke my heart again this time
Your fading now you crossed the line
You crossed the line

We all want to be somebody
Right now we're just looking for the exit

[chorus]

Reaching out for a hand
Its not here
But your not here
Your not here

This is the way I would have done things
Up against the wall
Up against your wall
This is the way we should have done
When were up against our wall
Up against our wall

[chorus]


5. The Blue Note



6. It's Dangerous Business Walking Out Your Front Door

I've been up at this all night long
I've been drowning in my sleep
I've prayed for your safe place
And its time for us to leave

Time is running, its running on empty and the gas is running out
I've decided that tonight is the night
That I let love aside
Full speed ahead this seems to be the place
I've seen this once before
Planned perfection sought in my dreams
Hoping this would take you home

My knuckles have turned to white
There's no turning back tonight
So kiss me one last time

Around this turn where the cross will cast your shadow
The people will all gather
To remember such a day
Where the flames grew as high as trees
And the world stopped for you and me

My knuckles have turned to white
There's no turning back tonight
Kiss me one last time
(Shut your eyes)
My knuckles have turned to white
There's no turning back tonight
(so hold on tight)
Kiss me one last time
(Shut your eyes)

I will now bring new meaning to the word alone
Endless nights of dreaming of life
And the days we should have spent here

Drowning in my sleep I'm drowning in my sleep
Drowning in my sleep I'm drowning in my sleep

Glass shatters and comes to a halt
I thought we'd be there by now
I thought it would be so much quicker than this

Pain has never been so brilliant
I made sure you were buckled in
Now you can walk hand in hand with him
Hand in hand with him

My knuckles have turned to white
There's no turning back tonight
Kiss me one last time
(Shut your eyes)
My knuckles have turned to white
There's no turning back tonight
(so hold on tight)
Kiss me one last time
(Shut your...)


7. Down, Set, Go

I had the whole world in my hands, but I gave it away...
I had the whole world in my hands, but I gave it away...
Gave it away.

I'm a half - with boy, crackin a smile and wearing it all on my sleeve.

So cruel, so poise
It's true, I'm just around to see
Where this thing goes
I'll never know, but all I know is
I'm back in bed
It's a remedy, it's a remedy.

This time I'd be nervous 'cause I can't see your hands
In front of me... (in front of me...)
Tonight, I've spoken.
I'll pretend to want and think of what we should be
What liars we can be.

I'm on my way to the top of the world,
And I've got a feeling I'll give it away.
I'm on my way to the top of the world,
And I've got a feeling I'll give it away.

Shes a maveric, shes so smooth...
If things go according to plan, I'll have her finished by five A.M.
There's no turning back, there's no second chance,
I've already got both feet through the door
And I can taste the air, I can taste the air.

This time I'll be nervous 'cause I can't see your hands in front of me
(In front of me tonight)
Let's forget all pretense of what they thought we should be
What liars we can be.

Make a sound, it's safe for you,
Choking here, alone.
Whatever I say goes (whatever I say goes)
Whatever I say goes (whatever I say goes)
You're not here with me, you're not here with me
You're not here with me, you're not here with me
You're not here with me, you're not here with me
You're not here with me, you're not here with me


8. I Don't Feel Very Receptive Today

This door has been shut for days
And it's all too familiar
Can't I just crack a window
Can't I just shake it off?

I'm sure I've tasted this before, before, before...
I'm sure I've tasted this before...

Everything is out of reach
And I just want to see outside
The air (the air) has been getting thin

I feel like cutting it open tonight, tonight
And falling on the floor

There's nothing left unused in here
There's nothing left to say

I haven't talked in days
And I'm really not too sure
What I sound like anymore
My vision has gone and my mouth is full, is full of sores

I feel like dripping it dry tonight
Over and over again
It's time (it's time) to open up the door


9. I'm Content With Losing

Like I said; "leave your baggage at the back door."
Where I'm leaving you the way I think it should be.
We're always pulling into spaces (that we can't back out of)
Starting fights.
We cant talk our way out of this
(talk our way out of this)
Talk our way out of this.

How does it feel to be on the receiving end of this one?
Of this one?

I'm half way there,
(and its all on me)
This is what I get for wanting more,
For wanting more.

This is the way its got to be.
Dancing on all these changes
So I walk around with this rope in my hand
(rope in my hand)
So I'll tie it around, and around and around.
I'll tie me down.

I'll fantisize of being manic and leaving us behind.
In your eyes, you were the one that tried.

Acceptance is what holds us here
Then you my dear are the one I fear tonight.
We'll try this one more time.

This is the moment that we all live for.
Are you ready?
Are you ready?

I'm half way there,
(and its all on me)
This is what I get for wanting more,
For wanting more.

This is the way its got to be.
Dancing on all these changes
So I walk around with this rope in my hand
(rope in my hand)
So I'll tie it around, and around and around.
I'll tie me down.

You cant see past my waving hands.
(just running away again)
You cant see past my waving hands.
(good-bye)

(it gets so loud it hurts my ears.)

I wanna know how to get through this
(how to get through this)
Without choking up.
I wanna know how to get through this
(how to get through this)
Without choking up.
I cant feel you,
You're so far from me.

This is what I get for wanting more
This is what I get for wanting more
(and its all on me)
This is what I get for wanting more
This is what I get for wanting more
(and its all on me)
This is what I get for wanting more
This is what I get for wanting more
(and its all on me)


10. Some Will Seek Forgiveness, Others Escape

I heard a voice through the dischord
Of a deluge of passers-by.
I saw one gaze frozen in time
Watching me passing by.
I swear I'll know your face in the crowd,
And I'll hear your voice so loud
When you're whispering...

Hey unfaithful I will teach you
To be stronger, to be stronger.
Hey ungraceful I will teach you
To forgive one another.

Here's my kiss to betray
Desperate to brush the lips of grace.
Do you feel hollow when you think of how I've lied?

Oh sweet angel of mercy with your grace like the morning
Wrap your loving arms around me.
Oh sweet angel of mercy with your grace like the morning
Wrap your loving arms around me.

Hey unfaithful I will teach you
To be stronger, to be stronger.
Hey ungraceful I will teach you
To forgive one another.
Hey unfaithful I will teach you
To be stronger, to be stronger.

Hey unloving

I will love you
I will love you
I will love you.

Jesus I'm ready to come home.


11. I've Got Ten Friends And A Crowbar That Says You Ain't Gonna Do Jack

[Limited Edition Vinyl Bonus Track]

Carry out the sounds
Past the west horrizons
I'm standing still, I'm standing still
Why I parted all the change
No body indured
Well I'm walking out, I'm walking out
What do you expect of me?

Did you think that this was all an excuse for hospitality
I know you think its all because of me
At first glance, I'm breathing
Leaving myself no room to move, at all
My mind is so flooded and I'm drunk with regret
Swimming in a sea of hope tonight
I find your energy sequenced to mine
As we push away with everything we have

Ohhh their acting on my words
We can start the fire, that will light up the night
No I wouldn't be to sure of you at all
We'll watch it burn together on respective sides
(yeah)
We look so good, as we fall

I'll go ahead and re-elect perfections
It's never looked as good as it does on you right now
I'll go ahead and make an incision
Doubt you'll feel anything at all
I dont think I'm right for a side and I am nervous
At least I can say I made it out this time
I just might, but you wont let me
As for you be sure to cover up your mouth

I dont know how to say this
My thoughts have just run out
