Track Name: Hello Vancouver
When we saw it all, 
Did you see it through my eyes? 

When I didn't call, 
Could you see that I never lied? 

Let's watch these pillars fall, 
And get on with our lives 

Let's blame our poor calls, 
And forget that I ever tried. 

They say love was written on empty walls, 
And these deadbeat halls were meant to swallow me. 

Meant to swallow me. 

It's a terrible feeling, 
And all that I'm seeing, 
Turns my breath into nothing, 
Changing life into something. 

And if we were all mighty, 
We might give up our fighting, 
Have a chance to see rightly, 
You know I'd find you in a heartbeat. 

They say love was written on empty walls, 
And these deadbeat halls were meant to swallow me. 

I swear I am nailed to this empty bed, 
And the things you said will always follow me. 

Always follow me. 

This life is no gift it's a prison sentence and I will get out of this cell, 
This life is no gift it's a prison sentence and I will get out of this cell, 
This life is no gift it's a prison sentence and I will get out of this cell, 
This life is no gift it's a prison sentence and I am trapped here forever.

They say love was written on empty walls, 
And these deadbeat halls were meant to swallow me. 

I swear I am nailed to this empty bed, 
And the things you said will always follow me.

Cause this life is no gift it's a prison sentence and I will get out of this cell, 
This life is no gift it's a prison sentence and I will get out of this cell, 
This life is no gift it's a prison sentence and I will get out of this cell, 
This life is no gift it's a prison sentence and I'll get out if it kills me.
Track Name: Sweep
It’s getting worse with all this division
Between lust and love, it’s hard with blurry vision
I’m not alone, in this room anymore, but i can’t say i’m living
I’m a wreck with all these indecisions
It’s getting worse and no one seems to listen
I’m not the first, who’s life needs some revision
If I’m alone, in this cold, dark room, for one more lonely minute
I’ll crawl in bed with all my rash decisions

I’m in bed with all my rash decisions
Keeping pace with all my stumbling intuitions
If i am to keep this up, i know i’ll end up wishing
That i stayed in bed alone again
Its funny though, i thought that this replaced those
Who would’ve know, that this is all just for show
And we’ll pretend,
That none of this ever mattered
And no one knows the better 
I wish that one of us had loved the other

I’m in bed with all my rash decisions
Keeping pace with all my stumbling intuitions
If i am to keep this up, i know i’ll end up wishing
That i stayed in bed alone again
If I could, i would tear my heart from my sleeve

You tore my shirt to shreds when you took me to bed 
If i could i would never tell you to leave
But i can see through you with both eyes closed

I’m in bed with all my rash decisions
Keeping pace with all my stumbling intuitions
If i am to keep this up, i know i’ll end up wishing
That i stayed in bed alone again

I can see through you with both eyes closed
I can see through you with both eyes closed
Night after night, I know how this goes
I can see through you
Track Name: Everyone Loves The Violins
She walks on water as I sink into the ground,
And I’ve never been the type to figure this out.
All these one liners, they break my teeth,
And I’ve gone blind from things I’ll never see.

And everyone knows I’ve not slept for days,
Cause wonderful things come in horrible ways,
If I could bring myself to hold her gaze,
Maybe this won’t be,
So bad
She calls for sailors and I’m just a stowaway,
But at this point I could care less if I’m thrown away.
Love thyself or love not at all,
But poor old me, I set myself too tall.

And everyone knows I’ve not slept for days,
Cause wonderful things come in horrible ways,
If I could bring myself to hold her gaze,
Maybe this won’t be,
So bad
Maybe this won’t be,
So bad
Maybe this won’t be,
So bad

And everyone knows I’ve not slept for days,
Cause wonderful things come in horrible ways,
If I could bring myself to hold her gaze,
Maybe this won’t be,
So bad
Track Name: Not One Dry Eye
So lift your spirits, only slightly
Your life is crashing, right before your eyes
Take in one more breath, won't be your last one
You better start, you better start to believe

They say the city never sleep and neither do I
My vessels are crowded streets, my hopes scrape the sky
And you were strung along this story, now you live in all your glory
If these are your wonder years, live them till the dream dies.

Cause the one thing you can't do is water down the fire in your eyes

And the worst thing that you could do
Is forget
Is forget
And I'll never understand
Why we pretend
We pretend
That you and I live different lives

They say the most awful things and I've heard them all
You wouldn't believe the cruel names they call
But you were strung along this story, now you live in all your glory
If these are your wonder years, do your best to survive

Cause the one thing you can't do is water down the fire in your eyes

And the worst thing that you could do
Is forget
Is forget
And I'll never understand
Why we pretend
we pretend
That you and I live different lives

And all this poetry doesn't do it justice
I wish I could instill this emptiness
But I must confess that I can't confess to being hurt
Cause if you don't let this hurt, you'll never beat this.

I remember all the apparitions I fell in love with all those years ago
When the worst thing in life was a bad grade
Now the worst thing in life is waking up
Because this weight just crushes the dreams you have in your sleep
And you forget them,
In an instant.

And the worst thing that you could do is forget
I live a good life
I live a good life
And I'll never understand why we pretend
I live a good life
I live a good life
The worst thing that you could do is forget
I live a good life
I live a good life
And I'll never understand why we pretend

You'll never be alone
You'll never be alone
Anymore
Anymore
