Track Name: Of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself
“ALL THE THINGS I COULD’VE DONE, ALL THE PEOPLE I COULD BE”
ALL THE NIGHTS I’VE WASTED THINKING THESE THINGS
NO MORE WILL I RESIDE IN FEAR, WILL ANGER BE MY NAME
NO MORE WILL SADNESS SMOTHER ME, WILL I HANG MY HEAD IN SHAME

TOMORROW WILL BE THE BEST DAY OF OUR LIVES
THE MOON’S ONLY A BLOCK AWAY IF WE WALK UP THRU THE SKY
MAYBE OUR STARS DON’T CHANGE, BUT THE LINES BETWEEN THEM DO
EITHER WAY, I’LL FIND A REASON TO PULL THRU

FOR TOO LONG, I’VE CARRIED A DARKNESS AND TRIED TO
ILLUMINATE THE SKIES
BUT EVERY DAY WAS A REASON TO TRY
NO MORE WILL CLOUDS HANG OVER ME, WILL THUNDER BURST WITH TEARS
NO MORE WILL EVERYTHING GOOD ONLY HAPPEN IN MY DREAMS

TOMORROW WILL BE THE BEST DAY OF OUR LIVES
THE MOON’S ONLY A BLOCK AWAY IF WE WALK UP THRU THE SKY
MAYBE OUR STARS DON’T CHANGE, BUT THE LINES BETWEEN THEM DO
EITHER WAY, I’LL FIND A REASON TO PULL THRU
Track Name: The Field Where I Died
IN THE FIELD WHERE I DIED, WHERE I GAVE YOU MY LIFE,
THE ANIMALS HIDE AND WAIT FOR THEIR TIME
SO MOVE ALL THE ROCKS AWAY FROM THAT SPOT
AND TEAR UP THE GRASS UNTIL NO TIME HAS PASSED
LOOK OVER AT ME—I WON’T LET YOU LEAVE
I’LL HOLD YOU WHILE YOU SLEEP
I’LL HOLD CLOCKS FROM TICKING

BECAUSE NO ONE BELIEVES IN WHAT THEY CAN’T SEE
LISTEN TO ME—SILENCE IS DEAFENING

OUTSIDE MY FRONT DOOR, I CRACKED OPEN YOUR CORE
YOUR TEARS MADE A STREAM I NEVER WANTED TO LEAVE
THE STARS, THEY ALL WATCHED AS YOU CRUMBLED IN SPOT
I KNEW WHAT I WAS SEEING—A MEMORY
THEY SAY THE DEAD ARE NO LONGER LONELY
BUT UNTIL YOU JOIN ME, I FIND THAT HARD TO BELIEVE

BECAUSE
NO ONE BELIEVES
NO ONE BELIEVES
NO ONE BELIEVES
IN WHAT THEY CAN’T SEE

IN THE FIELD WHERE I DIED, THAT’S WHERE I ENDED MY LIFE
BUT ALL THE THINGS I DID WRITE WILL LAST FOR ALL TIME
Track Name: Ad Mortem
LIE TO YOURSELF BUT DON’T LIE TO ME
I ALWAYS FIND THE TRUTH
YOU’RE SAYING NOTHING BUT YOUR EYES SPEAK
IN WAYS YOUR WORDS WOULD ONLY RESTRAIN

WORDS ARE FLAWED
YEAH
THAT’S WHY WE DON’T SAY WHAT WE MEAN
WE’RE MUCH TOO OLD FOR SUBTLETY
BUT WE’RE MUCH TOO YOUNG FOR STANDING IN PLACE
NOT WISE ENOUGH TO GO OUR SEPERATE WAYS

I’M STUCK TO WRITING WHAT I WANT TO SAY
BUT YOU’RE ALRIGHT WITH WRITING EVERY OTHER DAY
THE LINKS, THEY HAVE CRUMBLED
THE TIES, THEY HAVE FRAYED
I FEAR I AM GOING INSANE

IT’S SO FUCKING STRANGE TO FEEL ANYTHING
I KNOW IT’S FLEETING
I KNOW I WILL FADE
I KNOW I WON’T STAY

SO ALONE, UP THERE IN THE SKY
I’M LOOKING DOWN
I’M LOOKING BACK
I’M WONDERING WHAT THIS MEANS
I’M WONDERING WHAT IT MEANT TO YOU
Track Name: Everything Happens Nothing Matters
I AM NOT ASKING FOR A LOT—JUST A SECOND, IF YOU’VE GOT ONE
THERE ARE THOUGHTS WITHIN THIS HEAD THAT I CAN’T BEAR
TO WRITE AGAIN
I DON’T KNOW IF IT’S WORTH IT ANYMORE
YOU DON’T SHOW ANY SIGNS OF WANTING MORE

SOME THINGS, I ONLY SEE WITH MY EYES CLOSED
ALL THOSE SHIPS THAT NEVER SAILED..

YOU SAY YOU WANT ME IN YOUR LIFE BUT YOU WON’T MAKE THAT CHOICE
THERE’S NO MOVING ON, YOU SEE
I LOOK FOR YOU IN EVERYONE I MEET
AND I DON’T KNOW IF IT’S WORTH IT ANYMORE
MY HEART IS COLD
MY SOUL’S READY TO RETIRE

SOME THINGS, I ONLY SEE WITH MY EYES CLOSED
ALL THOSE SHIPS THAT NEVER SAILED..
THERE’S A FACE THAT HAUNTS ME IN MY DREAMS
BUT IT DOESN’T BELONG TO ANYBODY

LIKE A STAR, I BURNT OUT LONG BEFORE YOU COULD TELL
LIKE A STAR, I’M BURNT OUT AND COLLAPSING INTO HELL


BECAUSE SOME THINGS, I ONLY SEE IN MY DREAMS
YOU AND ME—THERE’S NOTHING ELSE

YOU’RE THE SILENCE IN BETWEEN ALL THE NOTES THAT I’M SINGING
Track Name: Across the Sea
ACROSS THE SEA, YOU’RE COUNTING SHEEP
I SAW THE DEVIL AND NOW I CAN’T FIND SLEEP

I WONDER IF YOU DREAM OR WORRY ABOUT ME
YOU’RE A GHOST INSIDE OF ME
AND LIKE THIS
I KEEP YOU WARM
AND SAFE
AND CLEAN

WINTER’S CHILL IS PASSING OVER
I DON’T HAVE MUCH LEFT TO SAY
BUT TOMORROW THE SUN WILL RISE
WHO KNOWS WHAT THE TIDE WILL BRING?

ACROSS THE STARS, THE BIRDS ARE SINGING PRETTY SONGS
THERE’S MUSIC IN THE AIR
AND I KNOW
WHAT IT’S LIKE
TO BE COMPLETE

WINTER’S CHILL IS PASSING OVER
I’VE DONE MY BEST TO EASE YOUR PAIN
BUT TOMORROW THE SUN WILL RISE
AND WHO KNOWS JUST WHAT THE TIDE WILL BRING?

I’LL BE WAITING
ACROSS THE SEA
Track Name: While Mortals Sleep
IF YOU ASKED ME HOW I FELT, WHERE WOULD I START?

I THINK THERE’S SOMETHING MIS-WIRED IN MY HEART
ALL THESE CHEMICAL IMBALANCES IN MY BRAIN
ARE A FRACTION OF WHAT YOU DO TO ME

I CAN’T COUNT THE NIGHTS I’VE LAID ON THE FLOOR
I TURN OFF THE LIGHTS AND I LOCK THE DOORS
I SCREAM AT THE CEILING AND I START TO PRAY
I BELIEVE IN GOD, IF ONLY JUST FOR THE NIGHT
JUST FOR THE NIGHT

I’LL NEVER FIND ANOTHER WHO BELIEVES THESE DREAMS
NEVER FIND SOMEONE WHO WON’T LEAVE ME EMPTY
I WILL ALWAYS WISH THAT I WAS SOMEWHERE ELSE
I WILL ALWAYS WISH I COULD HAVE LOVED MYSELF

SO DON’T LEAVE ME WITHOUT PROMISING
THAT YOU’LL COME BACK
I’LL BE RIGHT WHERE YOU LEFT ME

I’M AFRAID I’LL ALWAYS BE THIS ALONE
I’M AFRAID THAT, MAYBE, I AM JUST A GHOST
CAUSE I’VE ALWAYS FELT THAT I’M ALREADY DEAD
AND JUST WAITING FOR MY HEART TO STOP BEATING

IN ANOTHER LIFE, OH, I WOULD HAVE A CHANCE
TO BE LOVED AND FILLED WITH HAPPINESS
THERE’S ANOTHER ME OUT THERE WHO SCREAMS
OUT OF JOY AND NOT OUT OF MISERY

SO DON’T LEAVE ME WITHOUT PROMISING
THAT YOU’LL COME BACK
I’LL BE RIGHT WHERE YOU LEFT ME
