1. THE FIRE

I'll light the fuse and I'll set the dam to blow,
flooding the entire town below and all that I've known.
What wasn't nailed down will be washed away.
My hands are shaking but I will not hesitate.
I found the strength to face.
Because the place I fear the most,
is the place I have to go to see the truth.

"It's okay to feel lost, it just means you're alive",
I've told myself a thousand times.
From the ashes we will rise.
It's okay to feel lost, walk through the flames and see,
you're only left with what you need.
We're only here for the journey.

Am I bold enough to be underlined?
Like sand sifting through time, it all falls in line.
Life is a minefield and on one side I'm stuck.
I broke the key on the door I tried to unlock.
I'm never giving up.
Because the things that haunt you are the things you didn't do.
Not what you did.

"It's okay to feel lost, it just means you're alive",
I've told myself a thousand times.
From the ashes we will rise.
It's okay to feel lost, walk through the flames and see,
you're only left with what you need.
We're only here for the journey.

We find the truth through tragedy!

I'm finding new ways to make the same mistakes.
Putting my dreams onto paper and then folding them into planes.
Then I let them go because when in Rome.
I set fire to what I love the most!

I just want to feel alive!
I just want to feel alive!

It's okay to feel lost...
It's okay to feel lost...

"It's okay to feel lost, it just means you're alive",
I've told myself a thousand times.
From the ashes we will rise.
It's okay to feel lost, walk through the flames and see,
you're only left with what you need.
We're only here for the journey.

We'll find the truth through tragedy!


2. SAINT ANTHONY

My memory,
Hangs like the stain glass of the saints past history.
I bury deep, Saint Anthony.
I hear that he can help me find the things I need.

Alaska winters pray for end of summer days
But the sun won't go away.
Just like me I'll bet they really want to change.

I can run as far as London,
But my past has first class seats.

The lighthouse lost it's beam.
Now all I see,
Is the face of the cliffs between the moonlight waxing.
I fear for my life,
That the current tonight,
Is stronger than the will that I have to survive.

So breathe you're alive.
So breathe you're alive.
So breathe you're alive.

Is it just me,
Or do you wonder if we're put here just to see,
How much heartache we can take,
Without hanging from the tallest tree?

I feel as lonely as a preachers wife.
My heart's a Russian Knight.
I drink to try to melt the ice.

The Cold War in my mind.
The truth hides between the lines.

The lighthouse lost it's beam.
And now all I see,
Is the face of the cliffs between the moonlight waxing.
I fear for my life,
That the current tonight,
Is stronger than the will that I have to survive.

So breathe you're alive.
Breathe you're alive.

Because we'll make it through this,
No matter the odds.
all bets are on.
It's always darkest just before the dawn.

The lighthouse lost it's beam.
and now all I see,
Is the face of the cliffs between the moonlight waxing.
I fear for my life,
That the current tonight,
Is stronger than the will that I have to survive.

The lighthouse lost it's beam.
and now all I see,
Is the face of the cliffs between the moonlight waxing.
I fear for my life,
That the current tonight,
Is stronger than the will that I have to survive.

So breathe you're alive.
So breathe you're alive.
So breathe you're alive.


3. NEW YEAR'S EVE

Clip my angels wings
I'm a coward, I'm a liar and a cheat
My vows all means nothing, I'm weaker than a priest
Board up the windows and lock all the doors
Like a hurricane I'm always given a new name
Board up the windows and lock all the doors
Head for the hills get somewhere safe
The further you go the better off you'll be

I'm clear as glass but I can seem to ever clean
The fingerprints you left on me
I wish every night was new year's eve
So this Irish disease could have company

Who the fuck would want to live forever
When everyday feels like it's been a week
Call on the archers and let down the gate
Hell must be a view watching everyone you knew
Move on without you like you never lived
I'm just like my father as lonely as sin
Drinking away what I've been given

I'm clear as glass but I can seem to ever clean
The fingerprints you left on me
I wish every night was new year's eve
So this Irish disease could have company

I hate myself for
Never saying
That I
Want you in my life

But it's not my place to keep on trying to chase
A relationship that's not there
But if I don't then I know that you won't even dare

I'm clear as glass but I can seem to ever clean
The fingerprints you left on me
I wish every night was new year's eve
So this Irish disease could have company


4. SAFE HOUSE

I'm climbing out of the hole that I've been digging
Throwing out all the blue prints I have drawn up for the safe house
I stashed away enough food for forty days, gallons of water, first aid, and propane,
And some wine to entertain

I'm always planning for the worst
I signed my will right after birth
I've got my eulogy rehearsed

I fall to pieces and I get weak in the knees
When I think about eternity
Have I been led astray?
Feeling like they forgot me
He had the right name but the wrong street

I'm pulling nails out from the coffin
I'm gasping for air
My eyes are full just like the moon
I've got a silver bullet stare

The holy grail that I once thought
Was fiction but the fact is that it's not
In communion with my thoughts

The vultures circle overhead
Hanging like halos for the dead
But I'm not suited for one yet

I fall to pieces and I get weak in the knees
When I think about eternity
Have I been led astray
Feeling like they forgot me
He had the right name but the wrong street

I'm a number in a lottery
Life's a boardwalk game god rigged to cheat

As the snow falls all along the peaks
My minds an avalanche I'm digging through to reach
All the things I've tried to shove down deep
My minds an avalanche I'm digging through to reach

If I could run, but with its speed
I'm bound to be buried here underneath
A tidal wave triggered to teach
That life on an island isn't what it seems
I'm cutting off my toes just so that I can spite my feet

I fall to pieces and I get weak in the knees
When I think about eternity
Have I been led astray
Feeling like they forgot me
He had the right name but the wrong street


5. COWARD

I blame myself for never saying anything.
You're dead to me,
but I'm the fool who still believes
that one day you'll actually see
that you missed out on everything.
My innocence you devoured,
you fuckin coward!

I'm finding faith in myself tonight
and finally, I got it right.
I must forgive you to move on.
It's my only choice;
cause' you'll never come
to fill up all the cracks in this foundation.

You're the fear, all the panic and shame.
I'm afraid I'll be like you one day.
I'd love to hear the things you tell yourself
to pass the blame.

Your own daughter barely knows your face.
You set the fire and then walked away,
leaving everyone to clean the mess that you have made.
Everything you passed down to me,
The stiff right hand, this fuckin disease.
What do I get for being your son...
Nothing!

I'm finding faith in myself tonight
and finally, I got it right.
I must forgive you to move on.
It's my only choice;
cause' you'll never come
to fill up all the cracks in this foundation.

Jesus Christ, look what you've done.
Abandoning everyone that you should love.
You fuckin failed me.
All that I have left
is a choice to forgive or forget.
Hold your hand to the fire
You fuckin liar

I'm finding faith in myself tonight
and finally, I got it right.
I must forgive you to move on.
It's my only choice;
cause' you'll never come
to fill up all the cracks in this foundation.


6. LANDSLIDE

I've gotta start livin'
Cause my life's passing me by
I'm a wreck, I'm unraveling
You're in the front row as I'm struggling
The spotlight shines showing everyone
Imperfect lines I tried to cover up.

I was born into a landslide
Now my hearts a perfect stone
It's a paper weight for bad ideas
Cause I always fly too close

I'll melt the ice caps in the Arctic sea
Making a boardwalk out of Philly streets
New Jersey becomes the new Atlantis
Ringing in a new age of romances (So I can feel alive again)

I was born into a landslide
Now my hearts a perfect stone
It's a paper weight for bad ideas
Cause I always fly too close, to the sunshine
It will burn my eyes
The sun is burning out my eyes

I've gotta stop living like a tornado
Uprooting everything that gets too close before it's roots get to grow.

I was born into a landslide
Now my hearts a perfect stone
It's a paper weight for bad ideas
Cause I always fly too close, to the sunshine
It will burn my eyes
The sun will burn my eyes

I've gotta start livin'
Cause my life's passing me by


7. HEADED WEST

Sometimes I feel so meaningless
Tangled up in the widows web
The more I struggle the tighter the noose will get
I'm screaming for help outside of the school for the deaf
I'll spill my guts to anyone who will listen

I'm headed west to try to test my bravery
Face to face with my thoughts is what I need
The rear view reminds me the futures passing presently

If I could just hit rewind, eject and erase it
I've gotta replace this tape cause it can't sing along
Because you, you ruin so many songs
Even though it's been so long
All that I ever do drink enough to try to forget

Lets sober up and wait for the sun
Before we take back everything that we've done

I'm headed west to try to test my bravery
Face to face with my thoughts is what I need
The rear view reminds me the futures passing presently

I've spent so much of my time tryin' to see
Someone else, someone I could never be
You can't change yourself through changin' scenery
The rear view where we've been

Wasting all my time
I'm looking for something that I'll never find
I'm wasting all my time
I'm looking for something that I might never find

Lets sober up and wait for the sun
Before we take back everything that we've done

I'm headed west to try to test my bravery
Face to face with my thoughts is what I need
The rear view reminds me the futures passing presently

I spent so much of my time tryin' to see
Someone else, someone I could never be
You can't change yourself through changin' scenery
I tried but it doesn't mean I can forget the person that I am


8. LIFEBOATS

I just want to feel alive.
And love myself from the in and the outside.
'Cause every time that I start to feel whole,
I knock myself on the ground because it's all that I've known

Just like the streets burn a hole through your shoe.
My soul has been worn out too,
I'm 25 and I still don't fit in
Directionless, like a blind man painting

Mother I'm so sorry, I can't go on like this.
The lifeboats are leaving with or without me.
What's the point of falling in love?
If I don't love myself.
What's the point of being alive if all I want is out.

So I thought that it only feels right
To make the decisions that endanger my life.
Late late at night under black and blue moons.
I question in the reasons that I self-abuse.

I'm so pathetic.
It makes me sick.
I'm a fingerless pianist.
I see reflections.
I clench my fists.
I'm a violin without the strings.

Mother I'm so sorry, I can't go on like this.
The lifeboats are leaving with or without me.
What's the point of falling in love?
If I don't love myself.
What's the point of being alive if all I want is out.

There is no love.
There's only this:
Just lust and lies, and selfishness.
A black hole where the sun once was.
I'm never falling back in love.
'Cause it has never been enough.

Ever since I've been a young boy I was alone
Now that I've become a man, the feeling's grown.
Through the therapy and through the pills, I can't let go.
But what about the fuckin fact:
I'm still alone.

What do you do when you got nothing left?
Give up! Give up! And hope for the best!
I fell into the ocean, I and I feel sick,
Waiting on a nameless rescue ship.

What do you do when you got nothing left?
Give up! Give up! And hope for the best!
I fell into the ocean, I and I feel sick,
Waiting on a nameless rescue ship.

Mother I'm so sorry, I can't go on like this.
The lifeboats are leaving with or without me.
What's the point of falling in love?
If I don't love myself.
What's the point of being alive if all I want is out


9. NERO

I spend my life driving without headlights
I'm running from who I am
I've got my back layed across the iron tracks
Waiting for life to pass

I hit the floor so hard
'Cause I've been getting all my therapy at the bar
And this the last time I'll try

When all the drinks are gone
And it's just me and the odyssey of the dawn
My shadow shows someone
(Who's afraid of the morning sun)

Just when I thought that it couldn't get much worse
I turned around and I saw you there tonight
So when will I get a break from life?
It's driving me to drink tonight

You know that you were my worst addiction
Now you're here after two years of being clean
So when will I learn to break routine
And forget you like a dream

I'm gonna say this sober so I have no excuse
I need you in my life but
My neck needs a noose

Just when I thought that it couldn't get much worse
I turned around and I saw you there tonight
So when will I get a break from life?
It's driving me to drink tonight

You know that you were my worst addiction
Now you're here after two years of being clean
So when will I learn to break routine
And forget you like a dream

I set the fire
As I play my violin

I spend my life driving without headlights
I'm running from myself

Just when I thought that it couldn't get much worse
I turned around and I saw you there tonight
So when will I get a break from life?
It's driving me to drink tonight

You know that you were my worst addiction
Now you're here after two years of being clean
So when will I learn to break routine
And forget you like a dream

You know that you were my worst addiction
Now you're here after two years of being clean
So when will I learn to break routine
And forget you like a dream


10. IRISH EYES

My Irish eyes look out at the Atlantic
I think I drink enough to probably drain it
Then I could walk to Spain through valleys that were once full
And face each day like a ballet with a bull

The storm hangs like an axe over my head
The longer I wait the more it spreads
Like wildfire through the hills of confidence
The sun shines but there's sirens in my head

Stars remind me that
Light shines from the past

I'm so afraid that I'll have to face myself
Even though I know that self reflection helps
It's so easy to judge everyone but yourself
I push away any good thing that I've felt

I've got to lose it all if I want anything
I've got to lose it all if I want to be free

The storm hangs like an axe over my head
The longer I wait the more it spreads
Like wildfire through the hills of confidence
The sun shines but there's sirens in my head

I've got to lose it all if I want anything
I've got to lose it all if I want to be free
Free

The storm came like an axe over my head
The longer I wait the worse it gets
Like wildfire through the hills of confidence
The sun shines but there's sirens in my head

I face each day with a grain of sand
I cannot lose what I've never had

Stars remind me that
Light shines from the past


11. HOLD ON

I take a final breath, breath it in my lungs
'Cause everything I've done has made me numb
If I had just one wish it'd be to let this out
So let go

And late at night I wonder
Am I lightning lacking thunder?
A Cabaret marque
Just flashing lights flickering a tease
Inviting freaks to a fantasy
A baited switch and blurry dream
But inside there's no skin to see

I'm not giving up
I'm not giving up

I take a final breath, breath it in my lungs
'Cause everything I've done has made me numb
If I had just one wish it'd be to let this out (So let this out)
Now hold on, so hold on
But I'm still struggling I need to let this out
So let go

Cause Heaven knows I've got Hell for home
A fallen angel looking for a rope
I'm standing outside the Pearly Gates
But no one is calling my name

I'm not giving up
I'm not giving up

I take a final breath, breath it in my lungs
'Cause everything I've done has made me numb
If I had just one wish it'd be to let this out (So let this out)
Now hold on, so hold on
But I'm still struggling I need to let this out
So let go

I've got to somehow let this go
Or I never will feel whole

I take a final breath, breath it in my lungs
'Cause everything I've done has made me numb
If I had just one wish it'd be to let this out (So let this out)
I hold on, I hold on

I take a final breath, breath it in my lungs
'Cause everything I've done has made me numb
If I had just one wish it'd be to let this out (So let this out)
I hold on, so hold on
But I'm still struggling I need to let go


12. GHOST TOWN (BONUS TRACK)

I'm so fuckin' over this
My sins mean everything
Subconscious thoughts are what I need today

They said they're gonna get me
You ain't getting out alive
They said they're gonna kiss me
Right between the eyes
You gotta watch it, son
You better fuckin' pray
That Jesus Christ will save you
It's coming, Judgment Day

Leave it up to me
Just leave it up to me
If you leave it up me
I'll fuck it up

I'm so fuckin' over this
My sins mean everything
Subconscious thoughts are what I need today
Mother Mary, did you see?
Your son turned his back on me
Cause everything I do is killing me

You've gotta listen, baby
I don't think you understand
These men are serious
And they have dirty plans
I turn my back to them
And I looked them in the eye
And I said if I'm gonna die
You're coming by my side

Leave it up to me
Just leave it up to me
If you leave it up me
I'll fuck it up just like I always do

So I give up
I'm giving in
I get down on my knees
I'm nothing but a sinner
I can not stand
Waking up everyday
And staring up at a God
Who never stares back at me

I'll fuck it up
I'll fuck it up

I'm so fuckin' over this
My sins mean everything
Subconscious thoughts are what I need today
Mother Mary, did you see?
Your son turned his back on me
Cause everything I do is killing me
