I can't help but feel that I'm losing this battle, it's far to confusing well heads up looks like we are surrounded crashed down and now I am grounded but don't panic this is far from over I'll carry you back on my shoulders when this world starts refusing to make sense there's only one thing that makes a difference the clock's ticking but I"m moving backwards something's missing, does it even matter? the future's never quite how we planned it I realize yet I hardly can stand it I"ll hold on to whatever is near me til this clouds gone and I can see clearly pull me up when my heads going under I wake up to the sound of the thunder do we even know where this all goes? give it some time and you'll get there just close your eyes and breathe in air just give it time, it gets better it comes with a change in the weather let's fast-forward til somebody finds us a leap towards whatever will bind us time's moving but we're moving faster eyes peeled for the coming disaster the wind's changing and it's getting colder another season, another year older I guess that this is all it requires a temperature drop to bring up the fire and when it's my turn I'll see it all burn cos if there's one thing I've learned it's to abandon all concern give it some time and you'll get there just close your eyes and breathe in air just give it time, it gets better it comes with a change in the weather I'm holding out for a silver lining this is not our war it's just bad timing and all these problems and revelations no way to stop 'em until our days end just give it time it gets better just give it time it gets better

The Underdog 02:56
you never cease to fail because you're chasing your own tail there's nothing at the finish line when you get there something inside you whines because you're running out of time and everyone is gone but you are stuck here and something's wrong it's been too long and you can't hold this inside anymore anymore there's not much you can say when you're locked inside a cage the sun is out but you can't see it do everything you can to make them understand you can't control a fire, you have to free it and something's wrong it's been so long you question everything you know but don't think twice it's bad advice your instincts will take you where you want to go so take these chances as they come soak in the light until your numb there's never not an open door what are you waiting for?

Rain Song 05:07
I won't close my eyes there's no need for a surprise the lightening will strike if it chooses to I won't say a word there's no need to sound absurd these things go unheard cos I want them to I'm under your spell but I'm trapped in this shell I hope you can't tell that I'm going insane when I welcome the rain on top of your care the storm rolls in from afar but we're safe where we are we won't feel a thing and I wanted to say that you make the sky bright as day a symphony of grey when I heard you sing I'm under your spell but I"m trapped in this shell I hope you can tell that I don't mind the pain and so bring on the rain bring on the rain bring on the rain bring on the rain the rain, the rain

maybe if I was cold I'd want someone to hold but gone are the days that we knew I'd stay if I still knew how to and my hands are getting bored from playing these same old chords it's all just a pattern in my head an endless revision of words said cos now there is nothing left of like we never even met love so stop all this pleading you left me here bleeding alone and you can't take back such things as that we just lost track of time and lost our place in line and now this rift defines us both maybe if I was cold I'd break off from the whole there's no reason for me to stay here and I think that you feel the same dear cos now there is nothing left of like we never even met love and being with you is no fun when everything is in question so stop all this pleading you left me here bleeding I'm finally seeing you're not what I'm needing two broken hearts beating now I am leaving alone

October 05:45
hold up, I'm running behind I didn't meant to waste all this time on something I'm still trying to find in between these melodies and stupid rhymes October, we left it far behind all the costumes, candy, cops, and stop signs it's colder, now you never go outside just films and books and tracing dotted lines we counted the birds down by the pond less each day til all of them were gone can someone please tell me where they go? I've asked and asked yet no one seems to know I'm spending my days like dollar bills waste it all on alcoholic thrills I'm pending but time's not standing still brings us change with every day it kills you told me it's time to face the facts you had your chance now there's no going back I"m empty but why the hell is that? I've stoked the coals, I've filled the holes and cracks well it's crystal clear we've reached the end of our road but we're still here without any place to go well it's crystal clear we've reached the end of our road but we're still here without a place to call home

it smells like a fire outside the cool air rises in tides and fills our lungs with air and it is freezing but we don't care on the horizon lights shine the city buzzes with life but it is quiet here the heavy silence numbs my ears but don't make a sound the temperature is, it's coming down but I've got something so warm cars are passing beneath the bridge on Comanche Street headlights blinking below always thinking "too slow" so lets take time while we can before we're covered in plans I've never felt so complete with headlights under my feet winter comes fast November it, it never lasts but I've got something so warm time turns, we're unwound the wind blows us all around but I've got something so warm so warm so warm so warm

Icebergs 04:19
she works at an are display tells people what it means all day the empty frames and shapes of white all covered in experimental light beneath the surface there's so much more her phrase of choice to every door our eyes are limited at best to what we all have going on deep down within our chests and it keeps us up though it's barely enough you'll hold it close to you because it's all that you can do he has ideas he can't explain amorphous blobs inside his brain he works them out when he's alone translates them into words and then carves them down into stone we all aren't what we choose to be we blend into our scenery sit back until the timing's right then go out in a blast of flame, light everything in sight and it keeps us up though it's barely enough you'll hold it close to you because it's all that you can do cos we're not in control the friction takes its toll this thing we're up against won't take the time to make sense like icebergs we're always drifting something below keeps us shifting we can't control what we're missing it keeps us floating, keeps us going it keeps us going, keeps us going well it keeps us going, keeps us going it keeps us going

Abby 04:50
Abby, where have you been lately? your hearts somewhere icy and covered in snow the winter, it left you with nothing but the spring is coming and home you will go and you will find there is reason to compare the time you had before the dotted lines alone, driver's seat the radio repeats a million different ways to say it's fine you say it's fine Abby, these roads do the tearing the teeth that they're bearing can fill you with fear but don't hide, there's promise in streetlight all along the roadside, to make the way clear just freeze-frame this silly little game the best won't always be in your rear-view and you can embrace these little hands and open up your eyes to something new to something new Abigail, can you not tell? you're not alone in waiting for the end and we don't know where we will go but in our minds we picture and pretend
