I've dabbled in plenty of genres, but this seems to be the only one that is able to withstand my brutal honesty. This is not a cry for help, it's a scream to try and add personal definition to the word, "Why". Whether it be, songs about love, separation, or reclusive modesty; take them for what they are. This is for ALL of the people who stood by me, and for the ONE who will never fully understand ... more

Track Name: Voice On The Air
We're falling apart.
Track Name: I'm Sorry, I Love You
I loved you when I met you andI loved you when I had to leave.
I loved you when I got scared and I loved you in between
and I dont know how I would ever want to stop.
I'm sorry I'm so distant and I'm so sorry I'm so desperately
in love with every ailment swimming through the depths of me.
I believe the feelings of my hearts desires
will be amplified with sights and never-ending lights that'll shine below
my poorly structured frame that barely holds my insides up.
Either sink or swim inside this hole I'm in,
It holds the heart I know I'll never win.
I'll never win.
I'll build a house, filled with rooms,
filled with books filled with reasons to care about you.
My hands will be broken with promise unspoken,
in lieu of the selflessness I will pursue.
I've been waiting with the patience and consistency
of a shadowed silhouette that's waiting for the sun to free
and make a way for the escape of every one of all of our insecurities.
Track Name: Iron Out
Please stay until tomorrow
cause there's so much that you've missed out on.
I can't take another funeral
because I'm all washed up and
full of doubt.
It's bigger than something
that can be ironed out.
Track Name: Linger On
You're speaking low into my ears
when I'm a mess.
With any words exchanged, I'll take the blame.
So, go ahead and take your leave.
I'm not opposed, cause every time you've stayed,
I've ended up without a home.
I'll say the words you want to hear like,
"I was wrong",
but I'll admit them out of fear,
cause I've been standing still for
far too long.
I'm fucking glad I broke the cycle.
So many years just to find a place where I felt safe.
You tried to break me;
it only left me with pools of sweat and such regret
that linger on inside my fragile head.
Track Name: Carry Me
These symptoms.
I'm ailing, I need a breath of you.
That was long before.
I waited on the porch of your parents house.
When we notice there was nothing we could do to work it out.
And you knew I was broken.
I was hoping you could fix me with those eyes.
I'll reap what I've been sowing,
cause theres no way of going
back to your hands clasped safely in mine.
I was lost before.
I thought you would be the one to carry me,
but you faltered and know I can barely see the truth.
Track Name: The Thief (Relient K cover)
I guess it's safe to say you're never coming back
and I understand why you wouldn't want to
I guess it's up to me to find a way to get to you
and I can't see you
getting used to
living in the midst of your perfection
and I'm so lost
how can you trust
Somewhere the sun is always shining
and there's just one last thing that I have to say
as we reflect on the mess of all this that I've made
It was cowardice that made me push you away
I was so afraid cause you were so much better than me.
I guess it's safe to say you're never coming back
and I understand why you wouldn't want to
I guess it's up to me to find a way to get to you
