Track Name: Shatter In The Night
Laying in the yard and we worship the stars 
And I blow your mind While you kiss my scars. And we know. That we glow. 
Wasted for a week when you get what you seek
The precious will fade into grim mystique
But we hope. And we grow. 

We'll Love if we wanna
And we'll go where we wanna go 
Tripping out in Arizona. Shatter in The Night
We go
Freakin out in Barcelona 
Shatter in the night 

Dancing on the wire jumping over the fire
We hemorrhaging faith and we bleed desire
And it shows. What's below
Swearing on my sight in the dark of the night
Your flickin' on your Bic just to see some light
And you're low. But we glow

We'll Love if we wanna
And we'll go where we wanna go 
Tripping out in Arizona. Shatter in The Night
We go
Freaking out in Barcelona 
Shatter in the night 

We rise and we fall. We’re floating
And all our time’s revolving around what we see as true
But it’s breaking me and it’s breaking you
Track Name: I Never Knew How To Love You
I was breathing a ruinous fume
Rattling cages but you weren’t shaken
And I was asleep in my heart
Lost in a dream that no one could awaken

I was on the edge, and I needed you
But I turned my head, and the blade went through
Then I hit the ground, cause i never knew
How to love you

I was sending a signal for help
Like an S.O.S. I was stranded on islands
But I couldn’t even reach myself
Deep in a well, I was down in a valley

I was on the edge, and I needed you
But I turned my head, and the blade went through
Then I hit the ground, cause i never knew
How to love you

We all make a different sound when we break
Track Name: Obsess/Possess
Gimme all your tears and I won't swallow
Hold them in my mouth forever
I will run to you 
Throw me in the fire and I wont sweat it
Nothing ever burns forever 
I will run to you

Love is sipping from the vein 

I will never let you go

I can feel your breath around my fingers
Lemme breath it in till morning
I will run to you
Never really helped to kiss your bruises
Only if it means surviving 
I will run to you 

Dawn is drinking from the vein

I will never let you go

Listen to the sound of my heart beating
Only hearing what you want to
I will run to you
Keep me in your hands and I'm arrested
Written on my skin forever
I will run to you 
Track Name: Inhale And Hold
I look up to the sky and I see
The light and dust that resonates in me
Like a soul lost in the sea
I just soak in the cosmic debris
I look up to the light above my bed
And feel an aching void in my head
Cause I don't know who to be
But there's a glow burning in me

If I could hold a flame to the dark
And illuminate the pain in my heart
Then I may know how to love
And I just hope it's enough
If I could hold the world inside my lungs
And breath a melody into the sun
Then I would bathe in a chorus anew
And just row in the rivers of youth

I'm letting it go 
Surrender to the feeling 
With my face on the floor 
My feet are on the ceiling 
Track Name: Feathers So Hollow
Spitting at cars on the overpass
Tryin to find a way out
Living it up in the underground
Hoping to open my mind 
Lookin at heroes and vagabonds 
And thinking of how they tried
Sipping the tears of the wild and sentimental
Faking their way through life

So I drink in my car till I can't see your face
But I can see just enough to get by 
And I'm hit with my sin like a kiss on the wind. I can smile with the dirt in my eye. 

But I think I'm ready to fly
Are you ready tonight 

Sleeping inside a refinery
Rubbing the heat from my eyes
Shaken awake but the dream is never over
I'm running against the tide
But I plead and I want. All the freeways are haunted by the fear that I saw in your face
So I bleed and I fold all the cards that I hold
And I trade in the greed for some grace

But I think I'm ready to fly
Are you ready tonight 

I've spent too many years living inside my own head. Lying to myself and those I love. 
The light of reality hits me like a car crash. I'm thrown through the windshield but I don't hit the ground. I just keep flying. I'm flying on wings of humility carried by winds of forgiveness. I'm ready live. I'm ready to die. I'm ready to fall. I'm ready to fly. 

Flicking the day from your cigarette 
Trying to shed some light 
Breaking the backs of the demons on my shoulders
Throwing them to the night 
Track Name: Drinking From An Empty Glass
Ooh baby lemme see your eyes so I don't forget
Ooh can you come a little closer so I know you're there
Heart of stone. I crumble when you turn away from me.
I'm pouring everything into loving you. 

Why don't you love me
I let you in, you push me out
You lie when you touch me
Your eyes are cold and far away
I hope against hope but I know the truth
You say you do, but you don’t love me


Ooh if we only had each other would ya feel alright. 
Ooh if I left ya for another would ya be just fine. 
I believe there's embers in the ash. You fear the flame.
But it's me that burns for you. 

Why don't you love me
I let you in, you push me out
I die when you touch me
I can't believe the things you say
I hope against hope but I know the truth
You say you do, but you don't love me

Open your eyes baby can't you see
I want you but you don't want me
Never really matters just what I say 
I pull you close and you turn away
I was in the dark but now I see
You say you do but you don't love me
