Track Name: black and white
We're all just acting,
Acting like we don't care at all
The script is dragging on and on
And I am a sheep in wolf's clothing
I know
I know you'll see me

Is this everything that you can throw at me?
Oh, please!
I've seen better shots in B-list movies
She'll never light up the silver screen
Forgotten in time, that's where she'll be
Black and Whites and Title Screens
You're a prop in every scene

And we are cutting corners that never come full circle
You've got to let her go

Give me everything

Is this everything that you can throw at me?
Oh, please!
I've seen better shots in B-list movies
She'll never light up the silver screen
Forgotten in time

Is this everything that you can throw at me?
Oh, please!
I've seen better shots in B-list movies
She'll never light up the silver screen
Forgotten in time, that's where she'll be
Black and Whites and Title Screens
You're a prop in every scene

A brick house you can't blow
I'm a wolf in sheep's clothes
Time comes and it goes
You've grown up
I've grown old
Track Name: jason discovers ctrl+V
I used to be a kid only 16
nervous and scared that you used to hate me
your love is a burden i no longer lift
id rather go hungry like oliver twist...
id rather start a family...
with that baby killer Casey Anthony

Chorus:
Just lay your head down...
you've got this all figured out
life abroad was bound to be
the end of our nothing
Tell me that were fine 2x
i know that its like 2x
comfort comes hung dry

verse2
its been said in lore
too many times before
that love will conqure all

maybe thats a fact
but you dont know about that
or anything at all

im done 3x
this was the last time

Chorus

bridge
bring on the noise
(lay your head down 2x)
you know ive got a voice
(lay your head down 2x)

youve pushed me to my peak
ill stop hiding my teeth
i know you think im weak
but youre the one thats always on her knees

standing on the edge of goals
yeah you know we got so close

times been wasted i know you hated
all the words i chose

and its killing me to know you think you know
but you dont
Track Name: desperate measures
How I love the easy things in life that come so steadily
But they're far and few between

God I need you to guide me right through
Everything you want to
I'm here and I'm ready take me

Believe me when I say

I'm tired still weak from the world
But I'm trying not to give up
All the mountains that we've climbed
Are our habits we've left behind

Running away
Living a lie
Everything's fine
Nothing's alright

Give me, give me love
give me everything that I want
I've been trying so hard, I've been trying so hard

Believe me when I say

I'm tired still weak from the world
But I'm trying not to give up
All the mountains that we've climbed
Are our habits we've left behind

(Give me, give me love
give me everything that I want
I've been trying so hard, I've been trying so hard)
Track Name: the last time
Beauty will only get you so far
Lonely is the place where you are
You're all over me, you're all over me

Defiantely I told her
This'll all make sense to you when you get older
Like moss to a tree
You're all over me, I'm over everything

Cuz I'm so over you this time
And this is the last time I'll swear it's the last time
Disputing hearts and heads I can't do this all over again

I'm so over this I'm right
And this is the last time I'll swear it's the last time
Well a smile's hard to hold
When your silver linings gold
And the truth be fucking told
I'd really do this all over again

These are the times that I regret you
These are the things I wish I had to say
But courage could only be mustered to mutter that it's okay

These are the nights that I regret you
Time flies like a bird's prey carried away
But on the road to its belly I'm reminded
That everything's okay

Cuz I'm so over you this time
And this is the last time I'll swear it's the last time
Disputing hearts and heads I can't do this all over again

Cuz I'm so over you I'm right
And this is the last time I'll swear it's the last time
Well a smile's hard to hold
When your silver linings gold
And the truth be fucking told
I'd really do this all over again
oh
Track Name: lungshot
Carve out all the answers, to leave them hollow in this hall
Sick of never truly knowing anything at all
Visions of neighbors as shadows and strangers
Where the dust on our masks sets a perfect frame
To the pictures we'll be painting with our last breath

Where the silence says the worst, but has the last laugh.


Watching the world as we grow older
It's hard to miss when you're this close
Getting old

Dream on dreamer as you grow colder
Carve out all the answers
Sometimes its better to never know.

Sniper send your signal somewhere far away from here
Let it be oh let it be the bullet that spares you and saves me

Because I am nothing to no one but stardust and struck dumb
The silence says the worst when its the only voice whose fair.

Visions of neighbors as shadows and strangers
Silence say what you will but stay the hell away from me

Watching the world as we grow older
It's hard to miss when you're this close
Getting old

Dream on dreamer as you grow colder
Carve out all the answers
Sometimes its better to never know.

Sniper
Deliver me
I don't believe that anyone's worth saving
Sniper
Send me home
Back to where I come from and be done with me

Because I don't believe
That anyone's worth saving
Anymore

It's hard to miss when you're this close
Take me home
Take me home
