    I settled down
    A twisted up frown disguised as a smile
    Well you would've never known
    I had it all but not what I wanted
    'Cause hope for me was a place uncharted and overgrown

    You'd make your way in
    I'd resist you just like this you can't tell me to feel
    The truth never set me free so I did it myself

    You can't be too careful anymore
    When all that is waiting for you won't come any closer
    You've got to reach out a little more

    Open your eyes like I opened mine
    It's only the real world:
    A life you will never know
    Shifting your weight to throw off the pain
    Well you can ignore it but only for so long

    You look like I did
    “You resist me just like this you can't tell me to heal!”
    And it hurts remembering how it felt to shut down

    You can't be too careful anymore
    When all that is waiting for you won't come any closer
    You've got to reach out a little more

    The truth never set me free so I'll do it myself

    You can't be too careful anymore
    When all that is waiting for you won't come any closer
    You've got to reach out a little more

    If I'm a bad person
    You don't like me
    Well I guess I'll make my own way
    It's a circle
    A mean cycle
    I can't excite you anymore

    Where's your gavel
    Your jury
    What's my offense this time
    You're not a judge but if you're gonna judge me
    Sentence me to another life

    Don't wanna hear your sad songs
    I don't wanna feel your pain
    When you swear it's all my fault 'cause you know we're not the same
    We're not the same
    The friends who stuck together
    We wrote our names in blood
    But I guess you can't accept that the change is good
    It's good

    You treat me just like another stranger
    Well it's nice to meet you sir I guess I'll go
    I best be on my way out

    Ignorance is your new best friend

    This is the best thing that could've happened
    Any longer and I wouldn't have made it
    It's not a war no it's not a rapture
    I'm just a person but you can't take it
    The same tricks that once fooled me they won't get you anywhere
    I'm not the same kid from your memory
    Now I can fend for myself

    Don't wanna hear your sad songs
    I don't wanna feel your pain
    When you swear it's all my fault 'cause you know we're not the same
    We're not the same
    Yeah we used to stick together
    We wrote our names in blood
    But I guess you can't accept that the change is good
    It's good

    You treat me just like another stranger
    Well it's nice to meet you sir I guess I'll go
    I best be on my way out

    Ignorance is your new best friend

    I can't make my own decisions or make any with precision
    Well maybe you should tie me up so I don't go where you don't want me
    You say that I've been changing
    That I'm not just simply aging
    Yeah how could that be logical
    Just keep on cramming ideas down my throat

    You don't have to believe me but the way the way I see it
    Next time you point a finger I might have to bend it back or break it break it off
    Next time you point a finger I'll point you to the mirror

    If God's the game that you're playing well we must get more acquainted because it has to be so lonely to be the Only one who's holy
    It's just my humble opinion but it's one that I believe in
    You don't deserve a point of view if the only thing you see is you

    You don't have to believe me but the way the way I see it
    Next time you point a finger I might have to bend it back or break it break it off
    Next time you point a finger I'll point you to the mirror

    This is the last second chance
    I'm half as good as it gets
    I'm on both sides of the fence
    Without a hint of regret I'll hold you to it

    I know don't believe me but the way the way I see it
    Next time you point a finger I might have to bend it back or break it break it off
    Next time you point a finger I'll point you to the mirror

    She lives in a fairy tale somewhere too far for us to find
    Forgotten the taste and smell of a world that She's left behind
    It's all about the exposure
    The lens
    I told Her the angles were all wrong
    Now She's ripping wings off of butterflies

    Keep your feet on the ground
    When your head's in the clouds

    Go get your shovel
    And we'll dig a deep hole
    To bury the castle

    So one day he found Her crying coiled up on the dirty ground
    Her prince finally came to save her and the rest you can figure out
    But it was a trick and the clock struck 12
    Well make sure to build your home brick by boring brick or the wolf's gonna blow it down

    Keep your feet on the ground
    When your head's in the clouds

    Go get your shovel
    And we'll dig a deep hole
    To bury the castle

    You built up a world of magic
    Because your real life is tragic

    If it's not real you can't hold it in your hands
    You can't feel it with your heart
    And I won't believe it
    But if it's true you can see it with your eyes
    Even in the dark
    And that's where I want to be

    Go get your shovel
    And we'll dig a deep hole
    To bury the castle

    I scraped my knees while I was praying and found a demon in my safest haven
    Seems like it's getting harder to believe in anything than just to get lost in all my selfish thoughts
    I wanna know what it'd be like to find perfection in my pride
    To see nothing in the light
    Or turn it off in all my spite
    In all my spite I'll turn it off

    And the worst part is before it gets any better we're headed for a cliff
    And in the free fall I will realize I'm better off when I hit the bottom

    The tragedy it seems unending
    I'm watching everyone I looked up to breaking, bending
    Taking shortcuts and false solutions just to come out the hero
    Well I can see behind the curtain
    The wheels are cranking turning
    It's all wrong the way we're working towards a goal that's nonexistent
    It's nonexistent but we just keep believing

    The worst part is before it gets any better we're headed for a cliff
    And in the free fall I will realize I'm better off when I hit the bottom

    I wanna know what it'd be like to find perfection in my pride
    To see nothing in the light
    And turn it off in all my spite
    In all my spite I'll turn it off
    Just turn it off
    Again

    When I was younger I saw my daddy cry and curse at the wind
    Broke his own heart and I watched as he tried to reassemble it
    And my momma swore that she would never let herself forget
    And that was the day that I promised I'd never sing of love if it does not exist

    But darling you are the only exception

    Maybe I know somewhere deep in my soul that love never lasts
    And we've got to find other ways to make it alone
    Keep a straight face
    I've always lived like this
    Keeping a comfortable distance
    And up until now I had sworn to myself that I'm content with loneliness
    Because none of it was ever worth the risk

    Well you are the only exception

    I've got a tight grip on reality but I can't let go of what's in front of me here
    I know you're leaving in the morning when you wake up
    Leave me with some kind of proof it's not a dream

    You are the only exception

    I'm on my way to believing

    We still live in the same town well don't we
    But I don't see you around anymore
    I go to all the same places
    Not even a trace of you
    Your days are numbered at 24

    And I'm getting bored waiting around for you
    We're not getting any younger and I won't look back cause there's no use
    It's time to move forward

    I feel no sympathy
    You live inside a cave
    You barely get by the rest of us are trying
    No need to apologize I've got no time for feeling sorry

    I try not to think of what might happen when your reality it finally cuts through
    Well as for me I got out and I'm on the road and the worst part is that this could be you

    You know it too
    Can't run from your shame
    You're not getting any younger
    And time keeps passing by but you wave it away
    It's time to roll over

    I feel no sympathy
    You live inside a cave
    You barely get by the rest of us are trying
    There's no need to apologize I've got no time for feeling sorry

    All the best lies
    They are told with fingers tied
    So cross them tight
    Won't you promise me tonight
    If it's the last thing you do you'll get out

    I feel no sympathy
    You live inside a cave
    You barely get by the rest of us are trying
    There's no need to apologize I've got no time for feeling sorry

    Things are looking up oh finally
    I thought I'd never see the day when you'd smile at me
    We always pull through oh when we try
    I'm always wrong but you're never right you're never right

    Honestly can you believe we cross the world while it's asleep?
    I'll never trade it in cause I've always wanted this
    And it's not a dream anymore
    No
    It's not a dream anymore
    It's worth fighting for

    Could've given up so easily
    I was a few cheap shots away from the end of me
    Taking for granted most everything that I would've died for just yesterday
    Just yesterday

    Honestly can you believe we cross the world while it's asleep?
    I'll never trade it in cause I've always wanted this
    And it's not a dream anymore
    No
    It's not a dream anymore
    It's worth fighting for

    God knows the world doesn't need another band
    But what a waste it would've been
    I can't believe we almost hung it up
    We're just getting started!

    Give me attention
    I need it now
    Too much distance
    To measure it out
    Out loud
    Tracing patterns across a personal map
    And making pictures where the lines overlap

    No one is as lucky as us
    We're not at the end but oh we already won
    No one is as lucky as us

    Call me over
    Tell me how
    You got so far
    Never making
    A single sound
    I'm not used to it but I can learn
    Nothing to it
    I've never been happier

    No one is as lucky as us
    We're not at the end but oh we already won
    No one is as lucky as us

    Now I've got a feeling if I sang this loud enough you would sing it back to me

    No one is as lucky as us
    We're not at the end but oh we already won
    No one is as lucky as us

    I am going away for a while but I'll be back don't try and follow me
    'Cause I'll return as soon as possible
    See I'm trying to find my place and it might not be here where I feel safe
    We all learn to make mistakes and run from them

    With no direction
    We'll run from them
    With no conviction

    'Cause I'm just one of those ghosts
    Traveling endlessly
    Don't need no roads
    In fact they follow me
    And we just go in circles

    Now I'm told that this is life and pain is just a simple compromise
    So we can get what we want out of it
    Would someone care to classify our broken hearts and twisted minds
    So I can find someone to rely on and run to them

    Full speed ahead
    Oh you are not useless
    We are just

    Misguided ghosts
    Traveling endlessly
    The ones we trusted the most pushed us far away

    And there's no one road
    We should not be the same
    But I'm just a ghost and still they echo me

    They echo me in circles

  • brand new eyes

    Think of me when you're out
    When you're out there
    I'll beg you nice from my knees
    And when the world treats you way too fairly
    It's a shame I'm a dream

    All I wanted was you

    I think I'll pace my apartment a few times
    And fall asleep on the couch
    And wake up early to black and white reruns
    That escape from my mouth

    All I wanted was you

    I could follow you to the beginning
    Just to relive the start
    Maybe then we'd remember to slow down
    At all of our favorite parts

    All I wanted was you
