Track Name: Aloud
Never gonna turn my fate around
Said I gotta pull the whole thing out
Paid a price for words I spoke out of necessity, well
I don't know why they're aloud

Gonna try and calm this whole thing down
Built upon a shadow of a doubt
Dared to live for something more than petty frivolities, well
Who's to say that's not allowed?

Staring up at a wake of fire
Staring up at a wake of fire
Staring up at a wake of fire now
Now

Screaming but I never hear the sound
Searching for the strength to cry out loud
Crucified for trying everything to make 'em see well
I don't know why that's allowed

Staring up at a wake of fire
Staring up at a wake of fire
Staring up at a wake of fire now
Now

Fool me left and right I hate to know the shame's on me, well
I don't know why that's aloud
Track Name: Answer
It started off, I guess, fairly well...

In the wake of what's become of our lives
It's hard to tell you that I tried
Called away, called away
I guess there's something I'm yet to find

Another answer, there beyond the line
A new reaction nothing can outshine

Do you remember when I used to talk like
I couldn't leave you if I tried?
No way, no way
Try to remember what it felt like

Another answer, there beyond the line
A new reaction nothing can outshine

How far I go you're never far behind
Until I'm broken I won't let it slide
I can't reclaim the pieces that were mine

All in all it went fairly well...
Track Name: Ten Miles
Needed to stay
Ten miles away
We dared to feel emotion
So we couldn't help but cry
Till we refilled the ocean

Can't talk through walls
A thousand feet tall
We tried to live forever
Now we're dying all the time
To recapture that notion

Call to me forever through the wind
I'll atone for what we've done

Call to me forever through the wind
I'll atone for what we've done

Call to me forever from within
I'm a ghost out on the run
Track Name: Steal
Did you wear that dress for me?
Did you wear that dress tonight?
Did you think I'd get to sleep
Did you think I'd be alright?

Did you steal that from the night?
Go and steal back to the night.

Did you think it's fair to me?
Did you think you'd feel alive?
Did you wear that dress for me?
Are you looking outta sight?

Did you steal that from the night?
Go and steal back to the night.
Track Name: Ghost Town
Hide those lonely eyes
For a time
I made up my mind
Save those empty sighs
Breath awhile
I've gone to find my

Ghost town
Feel it out
Bleed out

Leave my head to lie
Unwind
The bonds of this life
Keep me nearby
But don't deny
I've gone to find my

Ghost town
Feel it out
Bleed out

I'm gonna bleed it out
Track Name: Far
Can I ossify what I've left behind?
Try to fortify shots from misty eyes
In sight of every single line
Can't be far from mine
Track Name: Deny
Wanted to see you by myself
All alone, all alone
We never need nobody else
Let 'em go, get along

Let's extol the things we can't control
Help remold the morals we uphold
Cause they won't deny me you for another day

Wanted to know just how it felt
Now it's gone, now it's gone
Can I get more without the guilt?
Is it wrong, am I wrong?

Let's extol the things we can't control
Help remold the morals we uphold
Cause they won't deny me you for another day

Let's extol the things we can't control
Help remold the morals we uphold
Cause I won't deny the truth for another day
Track Name: Scared
It started again
From my head down to my toes
I started to say

Scared of the noise
Scared of the noise

It's a stone
Not a stair
It's a stone
Not a stare

Covered my eyes
Jammed my knees up to my ears
Started to cry
I can't stop from shaking

Scared of the noise
Scared of the noise

It's a stone
(Always feeling like they're watching me at night, any moment turning silence to a strike)
Not a stair
(Would you really dream of leaving me in isolation, unprotected?)
It's a stone
(Every moment is a fight to stay alive, should I bother sealing violence from my eyes)
Not a stare
(When the voices all emerge around me like a forest unseen to light?)

Scared of the noise
Scared of the noise

(Breath. Stop.)
(Breath. Stop.)
It started again
(Breath. Stop.)
And I'm cowering in fear
(Breath. Stop.)
Wish I could say
(Breath. Stop.)
Stop

Scared of the noise
Scared of the noise

It's a stone
(Always feeling like they're watching me at night, any moment turning silence to a strike)
Not a stair
(Would you really dream of leaving me in isolation, unprotected?)
It's a stone
(Every moment is a fight to stay alive, should I bother sealing violence from my eyes)
Not a stare
(When the voices all emerge around me like a forest unseen to light?)
Track Name: Missed
And when I'm gone
You'll feel alone
Under a million years of sky
While the mountains pass you by
And I still don't know
If you ever
Cry out
To me
At night
You'll never reach me now

And everyone
Will come to know
About emotions we denied
From the distance in your eyes
And I dare not show you
How you planted
Spirits
In me
Oh, why?
I'll never reach you now
