Track Name: Falcon Kick!
We promised that we'd never speak of this
But keeping quiet only furthered the distance
And this is nothing but a flaw that you would make me into
So fall asleep until you wake up and want to forget me
(I can't expect you to ever come back down)
Just leave me right here, I will be fine on my own
I've seen the picture so clear
With nothing left to fall through now
What brought us to this? 'Cause I can't see where we went wrong before I let this one go
Over my head, to where we stood
To where we watched it all fall down
But I won't let this get to me
So fall asleep until you wake up and want to forget me
(I can't expect you to ever come back down)
Just leave me right here, I will be fine on my own
I've seen the picture so clear
With nothing left to fall through now
At the end of the day I'm glad you broke it off before I could say
Everything that's been torturing me
(You took advantage of more than you think)
And it's not unlike you to drive this point home, to shove it down my throat
You want me to choke, but I've long been comatose
So let go
And if I had the chance to explain myself again, I wouldn't waste my time
I was better off, still better off
Leaving these memories behind
Track Name: Save Yourself
So did you think that I'd come running back to you as soon as you
Left me on the ground to bleed out from where you stuck two
Shards of hope and despair in my side
Now I'm struggling to find out why
Promises made were left silent
And the guilt forever holds a place in my chest
And it keeps me on the fence between integrity and dishonesty
You waited for the day you could bury me away and run
How long can you keep this up?
And how long 'til you realize that
You wanted something more than you could ever admit
But it wasn't safe to stay until the panic set in
Dwelling on the consequence, you left me in the dark
To save yourself from blame in the eyes of everyone
Promises broke are set prominent
Etched with blood and salt that you stained in my skin
And my mistake was putting too much trust in
What we swore we'd never speak of again
Track Name: Overcast
Chasing voices softly heard in the distance
Familiar sounds linger with a shift in position
A passing glance, or what seems to appear
Is this what it feels like to let the moments pass?
To retrace, reminisce, and wish they'd all come back?
But when did everything change?
I've lost touch with everyone I've known
To what I have, I'm hangin' on this time, not letting go
It feels like I slipped behind
Got caught up with myself and vanished with the time
And all these blurry memories are all that's left of me
So I'll stay where I am
Lost in the back of everyone's mind
And repressed over and over and over again
So this is what it's like to let the moments pass
To replace with mistakes that became all I have
So I'll just accept I'm faceless
I've lost touch with everyone I've known
To what I have, I'm hangin' on this time, not letting go
It feels like I slipped behind
Got caught up with myself and vanished with the time
And all these blurry memories are all that's left of me
I've lost touch with everyone I've known
To what I have, I'm hangin' on, I'm hangin' on, I'm hangin' on this time
It feels like I slipped behind
Got caught up with myself and vanished from their minds
And all these blurry memories are all that's left of me
Track Name: Buddy Sanchez
I've been sitting across the table from you
Trying to pretend that things could still be how they used to
And acting as if I don't still
Carry all that weight
Every single god damn day
I'm sure you can't relate
There's a reason I'm afraid of being blinded by constant
Ideals you held me up to
But now I'm looking down on you
Before you expect me to extend my hand out unto you
Understand that you no longer serve any profit to me
And natural selection's coming for you
'Cause you've been rendered helpless after all now that you
Carry all that weight
Every single god damn day
I'm sure you can't relate
There's a reason I'm afraid of being blinded by constant
Ideals you held me up to
But now I'm looking down on you
Track Name: Release
"It's just a phase you'll forget eventually"
Fuck that, I was out when you tested me
"No", I said "I've had enough"
"It's been a long two years and I've been mad enough"
And now I'm finally growing out of this haze just to feel the guilt and be greeted by your face
I guess I never got the chance to say that you're not welcome here anyway
I've been sleeping just to run from memories
And I'm still sleeping just to run from everything
What did you expect?
Is this what you wanted?
A chance to self-reflect and regain all that you've lost in me?
You tore down any reason I had to stay
And now you're left here wandering aimlessly
And I've been stuck in a hell
With your foot on my head 'til now
It took some time to adjust and find that I'm self aware
Nothing's changed but nothing's the same
So I'll leave you lost with my apology
I chose self-interest over sympathy
And it's just the same thing again this time
But I don't care enough to change your mind
What did you expect?
Is this what you wanted?
A chance to self-reflect and regain all that you've lost in me?
You tore down any reason I had to stay
And now you're left here wandering aimlessly
And I've been sleeping just to run from memories of the sands you shifted in my life
And I'm still searching for some sanity to help me distance myself in time
I've been sleeping to run from my memories
And I'm still sleeping to run from everything
It's not up to you to say "I am sorry for everything I put you through"
But it's up to me to save myself from you
