Track Name: Breathe In
Breathe in
Don't let that grin slip off the top of your chin
Breathe out
This awkward silence is getting way too loud

So let's have another drink
So we don't have to think and things
Can just fall into place
Because it feels like such a waste
When the feelings that we graze
Never see the light of day

Breathe in
Feel free to break out of this turbulence
Breathe out
It's time to tell me what the hell this is all about

So let's have another drink
So we don't have to think and things
Can just fall into place
Because it feels like such a waste
When the feelings that we graze
Never see the light of day
Track Name: Out of the Picture
Another cigarette to just pass time
Until I can fall asleep
And you can admit that you crossed the line
I understand that this is all for a bad effect
But a good cause
A friend of yours is laying down the law
But it's been broken all along
Like chalk at a crime scene I surround the gravel
Where a body once was
Now there's no love or balance to be lost
I'm relying on the kids under the stairs
To slip and fall

I sure hope you can crawl

Please take me out of the picture
Smash it right along the fucking floor

People tell me this is definitely not meant to be
A drinker like you and a smoker like me
Our mouths are bound to ignite or kindle
A desire or need
To be temporarily satisfied or sensually free
Just don't forget to breathe
Why must I travel through walls?
Can't we just go under the stairs
So on the way down we can both let ourselves
Slip and fall

It's your call

Please take me out of the picture
Smash it right along the fucking floor

Love is just an excuse to get angry
Don't let those fists come out
Or you'll be empty handed
I'm just trying to look ahead in the future
I don't see happiness or any prominent sutures
I never ever wanna hear the news
That I'm getting too old to stumble and fall with you
I'll try my hardest to relight
My last cigarette
Goodnight.
Track Name: Hello Yellow
Hello yellow
By the mellow grove
I've been growing too fast and too old
Just to let this go
Opposite ghosts commonly attract
I'm a negative, it's positive that I'll adapt
To this cruel environment

People people all around
Can't you see what's happening to your small town
Fast food and happiness
Safe and sound

Hello yellow
Dying for some light
Those materials are far too bright for us
I'll take my cell phone and throw it in the street
Crash my car with the TV in the back seat
And walk back with my bare feet

Hello Yellow
Please stick around
Can't you see what's happening to our small town
Let's make it big
And forget about what's safe and sound

Burn our money
And tear our clothes off.
Track Name: Where You Started
Eyelids creep open to a ray of confusion
Seeping in through your bedroom window
Little do your close friends' closed minds know
That you're far from sane
You want to let go
The pressure's echoing out
Through the speakers real loud
You ain't got no headphones
There's an excess to think about
These rocks are falling now
I'm stoned

Baby cuz sometimes
There's a haze of strain inside of my head
And I don't know if I'm better off alone, alive, or dead
I'm tempted to exclude the pain
And stop waiting
But it couldn't hurt to see what tomorrow brings

You could walk for days
Ride out all the trains
Get away in so many ways
But in the end you'll be right back where you started
Wishing everything were okay

Spontaneous urges have never seemed so beautiful
Specially when the makeup is so noticeably
Out of control
You say that there's something healthier out there
You strive for help but never really care
You're walking a blind man into a death stare
I'll try to carry on and have some fun
While you're on the run
From what is best for you
Cuz you're caught upon the past
A first that'll never last
Depending on fate
You'll rethink what is true.
Track Name: B-side to My Life
I'll take this pen and pad of paper
And write about nothing at all
Make sure that I don't express myself
And keep my emotions behind a wall
And I'll be sure not to mention anything
That might be personal or socially insane
Cuz I don't want you to know what the deal is
Every notion on my brain

I know were both single now

But it's just a b-side to my life
It don't deserve a hit song

So I'll write about things that never happened
And problems that never occurred
Rhyme my words like I'm happy
And teach lessons that were never learned
I'll fake my calmness for one more stanza
Conceal my thoughts for one more line
But secretly I hope you get the message
That it shoulda woulda coulda been fine

I know were both single now

But it's just a b-side to my life
It don't deserve a hit song.
Track Name: Should I Dig My Own Grave?
Should I dig my own grave?
Or will you promise not to make it too shallow
Like a mind out of focus
Just a photograph to follow

Should I dig my own grave?
Or will you insist on awaking this soil
From a deep overwhelmed state
Causing the hue in your eyes to spoil

Should I dig my own grave?
Or will you seduce that rusty shovel
Without any second thoughts or chances
That were taken under your covers

Should I dig my own grave?
Or will you let the ground protrude and smother me
Either way I better shave my mind
So my shadow doesn't outgrow my body

Should I dig my own grave?
Or will you take the blame?

Should I dig my own grave?
Without knowing the time or day
Should I dig my own grave?
Track Name: Breathe Out
Breathe in
Stop running there's no race to win
Breathe out
Face to face let's settle this now

So let's take a ride today
And watch the road bathe
In the break of the sky's rays
Breathe in a cloud of smoke
And breathe out a shade of hope
Because boy that's your Sun Bathed Road.
Track Name: Sun Bathed Road
A damaged town
All year round
A spite that seasons cannot change
I have every reason to caress her arms
And tattoos of the end of days
An autumn mood
Winter attitude
Leaves are melting like snow
But these thoughts resume to grow and grow

These are hard times to recover from
A soft pillow breeze is a relief from the boiling
Far in height sun

These people drag their legs around
On shifting grounds
Unaware that everything will soon die
They have to face the fact
That sooner rather than later
They're gonna have to go for a drive

There used to be a green light telling you when to go
But now there's a lightning bolt penetrating
Your soul

Oh let's take a ride on a sun bathed road
And We'll change colors like the autumn's snow
Oh let's take a ride on a sun bathed road
And we'll simmer down in New Mexico

But don't you drink the water
It'll only make you hotter
It'll only make you stronger
It'll only make you happier
So don't you drink the water
It'll only make it easier
It'll only make you stronger
It'll only make you realize that it's not worth
Being thirsty over

This life is so overrated
Let's get away
Before we all become fated
Track Name: Decoy
The population tells me that this phase of life is normal
I've been showing up
To a casual dinner dressed too formal
I've been misinformed and told to squirm
Until my eyes can no longer glisten
But they are the ones who cannot see
That I've decided not to listen

It's all been downhill up until now
I'm ready to walk through hell by any means
Reality will allow

So take my pride and joy
It's been just a decoy for you to search and destroy

I've been expecting bad news from the paperboy
For far too long
So I deliver this simple decoy
To act like nothing's wrong
You can try your hardest to twist your words
Into my back
But I won't feel anything
Not even a heart attack

You still have no idea who you are
Or what you're all about
So what makes you think you have me
Surely
Figured out

So take my pride and joy
It's been just a decoy for you to search and destroy
Break my heart
And I'll just go to the store and buy another

Maybe I was craving for a claustrophobic closeness
To fake
Or maybe I just admired you for the time
We used to waste
I'd hate to tell you I never cared
And somethings you do I can hardly bare
But it's time to spark a road flare

Because are hearts' egos are about to crash
And I really don't wanna be around
For the relash

So take my pride and joy
It's been just a decoy for you to search and destroy
Steal my tender moods
They were just a decoy to heal your inner wounds
Break my heart
And I'll just go to the store and buy another
And if they run out of my size
I'll just steal a bigger one until everything
Is alright.
