Track Name: Dear Mr. Campbell, Thank You For The Advice
A great year just passed me by
And I'm beginning to regret all my alone time
I let go, the world was spinning
And I just sat inside the motion blur

I want to put an end to this dizziness
Well, it starts with that notebook on the floor

Who's to say that this ink is concrete
And these sad songs are building blocks
For all the road beneath my feet?
Who's to say that my future is paved with misery?

Maybe each pen has its own demons
And it's our hand's duty to try and beat them
Well, I let go my grip on this pen
Because I think that I might finally have won

Call me crazy, but I think I cure my heartbreak
When I put all my faith into a song.

Who's to say that this ink is concrete
And these sad songs are building blocks
For all the road beneath my feet?
Who's to say that my future is paved with misery?

I think it's time that I cut my losses
I'm sick of wasting all my time on lost causes
I think it's time that I cut my losses
I'm sick of wasting all my time, my time, my time
Track Name: Empathy
If these walls could talk
They'd speak of how tired
They are of my presence
And forget that I erected them
With hands now expired and

I guess I overstayed the welcome
I guess I am a stranger in my home

If these walls could talk
They'd look back on times
When I slaved over them
And swear I'm "not the same man"
Ever since the blisters wore off my hands

I guess I am a stray, not welcome
I guess I better find a new home

Well who needs friends
When you're too busy loathing?
And who needs love
When you're too damn controlling?
Your hand is raised, "I do."

Well the blind man's words
Fell on deaf ears
And only the mute man knows
Where I disappeared to
So if you'd like to find me
You'd better sit in that house
Lonesome, bitter and consumed
And hope those walls talk to you
Track Name: Mayday
Tucked away, behind these ribs
Is a sinking feeling
That I'm drowning now, within you
And everything you do
I tried my best to keep composure,
To think it over
But you called me and you called it love
And now we're crying out:

Mayday, Mayday
I'm not falling from this skyline
Just for nothing, for nothing
I'd fall for you
Another thirty thousand feet
Just to see you smile before I hit the ground


Short of breath, and drowning into you
Fill my casket with the scent
Of your perfume, barely buried
But I'll always wait for...
The blood rushes into my veins
It's whispering,
Don't save me, Don't save me
And now we're crying:

Mayday, Mayday
I'm not falling from this skyline
Just for nothing, for nothing
I'd fall for you
Another thirty thousand feet
Just to see you smile before I hit the ground

I've never been a dreamer,
But I often like to think that I'm
More than just another night
Lining all the places you sleep
Your words, they form lines
and they pull me down,
I hope to god, these feet
Don't ever touch the ground

Now we are crying out:

Mayday, Mayday
I'm not falling from this skyline
Just for nothing, for nothing
I'd fall for you
Another thirty thousand feet
Just to see you smile before I hit the ground

I'd fall for you
Another thirty thousand feet
Just to see you smile before I hit the groung
Track Name: Breathless
Come with me, we'll exhale every
Icy breath we've held in since last winter
And inhale the warmth and comfort
Of the summer

Tonight, we lie together
We'll lie to everyone else
We'll make the weight of the world
Wait on us

Yeah, they'll talk, and they'll be brutal
But we don't need a seal of approval
Proudly. I'll wear that stigma
They just don't see the beauty within you

But as we breathe in, I promise I do

Tonight, we lie together
We'll lie to everyone else
We'll make the weight of the world
Wait on us
Track Name: NeveReverend
God damn, it's the overture,
Clicking it's way from my heart, my lungs, it hurts.
Writing letters to my tongue, my head.
Telling them things better left, they're left unsaid.
Filling up like a wishing well,
Well, wish me well, I'm on my way to hell.
Picking daisies for the saints and men
Hanging their heads for the shit they did back then.

"All right, last call. Drop your keys off at the door."

Set in stone, yeah, it's set in sin,
But you can forgive me if I give in.
At the door, yeah, we want more,
Or we will storm these gates.
You can't keep her there for long.

So hold steady, here comes the drums,
To find our hearts and break us down to one.
And when we're buried, if it helps you through,
I'll grow roots, and I'll steal the sun for you.
If heaven wants you, they can dig for weeks.
They'll find our bodies wrapped tightly in your sheets;
A little one trapped inside your ribs.
If they want us now, they'll have to take us all.

"All right, last call. Drop your keys off at the door."

Set in stone, yeah, it's set in sin,
But you can forgive me if I give in.
At the door, yeah, we want more,
Or we will storm these gates.
You can't keep her there for long.

Set in stone, yeah, it's set in sin,
But you can forgive me if I give in.
At the door, yeah, we want more,
Or we will storm these gates.
You can't keep her there for long.
You can't keep her there for long.
You can't keep her there for long.
You can't keep her there for long.
