Track Name: The Water Level
You were the better part
Of the last half of my past year
And I tried to write it all down
But I couldn’t keep you
Here with me
And it’s something we’re in search of
All your useless apologies
Track Name: Limerence
And it’s not the way you said “I’m done”
Or the fact that you gave up
On everything that brought us here
That makes it so hard to forget
That our time wasn’t well spent

And I’ll just sit and adhere
Broken door, missed opportunity
Can’t stop me, you won’t stop this
Lose the keys, you know you broke the promise

Not holding onto anything anymore
Cause we’re on two different sides of the door
For the past two years
This house been rotting me from the inside
Stop feeling lost and come home
On my own time
Home is not a place but a state of mind
That’s why I can never find myself

And I’ll just sit and adhere
Broken door, missed opportunity
Can’t stop me, you won’t stop this
Lose the keys, you know you broke the promise
The best memories I had were the ones you never cared
The best memories came from the ones you never shared

So hang up the phone this time
Cause I won’t come home tonight
Can’t say that I’m alright
I won’t, I won’t
Two years too many
I’ve been here too long
All this weight I’ve carried
I can no longer hold on
Track Name: Dying Time
My shaking hands that
Hold onto nothing of
Any importance to
Anything I have

It wasn’t that I couldn’t think straight
This all unfolded right before my eyes
We watched this all go down

I was just trying to be
Only worth your while
But you know we both know
We’re fading out

I was just trying to see
If dying time could last forever
(But it never did)
But how long has this gone
You know we’re fading out
Denying the truth
Yeah I’m fine
When all along you’ve had it wrong
There’s no waiting it out

Something I lost I’m left searching
For a light I couldn’t find
You called it all off
I drove past your house
To reaffirm my doubts
I drove past your house
And reaffirmed my doubts

I was just trying to see
If dying time could last forever
(But it never did)
But how long has this gone
You know we’re fading out
Denying the truth
Yeah I’m fine
When all along you’ve had it wrong
There’s no waiting it out

There’s no waiting it out
Track Name: Lacquer
I know I seem loud and outspoken
Maybe I’m just scratched and broken
Keep me wrapped up, keep me packaged
Your apathy has been acknowledged
A constant reminder that I’m alone

And as the sun begins to fade
Oh, you left me wondering
Why you left me on the concrete
Does that mean
Does that mean anything
All this pain
That you caused me
(All this pain you caused)
Well you left me feeling so alone
With no place to go
Just another failed attempt
At what you call your own
Track Name: Glow
You said I’ll catch you on the way down
If I can’t seem to keep myself in place
All the while I’m just feeling in doubt
This place just never feels the same
Since everything has changed

Can’t hold onto anything you say
Let me show you a proper way
Maybe it was misdirection
Or we both got lost in the process
You’ll continue searching
For something you’ll never
Find

Slowly falling apart
Always hearing “it just wasn’t worth it”
Some things are too unclear to
Even give a purpose
I’m losing balance
Waiting for you to catch me
It seems I'd be the one to
End up on the concrete

It’s been said that I’m never going back
I’m never coming back home
Lose grip, let go, and just drop me
I’m never coming back home
Lose touch
Forget me
