Track Name: Asleep
I wanted to stay, but you took me away

I wanted to stay, but you took me away
Ohhhhh, Away from
Away from me. I could tell you if I knew
I'd been losing sleep over you
but i hope that you're okay
I've been losing sleep oh

I wanted to stay, but you took me away
I wanted to stay, but you kept me waiting

oh, away from
Away from me.
I would tell you if i knew
I'd be losing sleep over you
wide awake and i miss you
i could tell you if i knew

I wanted to stay, but you took me away.
Track Name: Tooth or Teeth
Well things don't fade, just people do
And when I was surrounded by my friends
The loneliness never seemed to fade
We were dealt a shit hand and all any of us had to do was believe that things would get better
Truthfully the reason it didn't because you all wouldn't let it
I wish this was individually but it's come to a collective whole in the end
Where were you when I needed you
You stayed awake in your pretend sleep
Maybe it's too harsh of thing a thing to say
Someday we will laugh at all the memories we made
How must we all complain about loneliness but can't stay around long enough to give each other any sort of hope.
I found peace without any of you here
Must I depend on these four walls again
The leaves left the trees and you went with them
It was the coldest winter I ever experienced
Some things are better left unsaid
So I'll lose all my teeth
On this pillow complied of sheep
And bite my tongue out of relief
I miss you all more and more everyday
I miss you all more and more everyday
Track Name: Something in the Way
Underneath the bridge
The tarp has sprung a leak
And the animals I've trapped
Have all become my pets
And I'm living off of grass
And the drippings from the ceiling
It's okay to eat fish
'Cause they don't have any feelings

Something in the way, mmm
Something in the way, yeah, mmm

Underneath the bridge
The tarp has sprung a leak
And the animals I've trapped
Have all become my pets
And I'm living off of grass
And the drippings from the ceiling
It's okay to eat fish
'Cause they don't have any feelings

Something in the way, mmm
Something in the way, yeah, mmm
Track Name: Almost the Sun
I'm still begging for your attention
like when I was a kid
I'm sorry I can't explain this
Absence filled the house
And I lost the laughter with it
I feel so lost in this city
There are such better places than here

I miss your damn smile
Mother I miss your laughter
when it rings
Ill figure my way out
in this world
There is a reason for everything
The sadness came
as I was leaving
I'm sorry for anything
Absurdity started at nothing
It not the first time I scraped my knees
Or the first time I fell past the floor
In all the lessons I learned
It's always to be modest
And that life won't give you things you can't handle
Because things are never promised
I won't be stuck in this hole for long
So straighten your back kid
It's time to move on

Straighten your back kid
You won't be stuck in this hole for long
Straighten your back kid
It's time to move on
Track Name: Lure
I'd learn to fly just to carry you over
I'd clip your wings, just to see you cross over
Wait here with me, the world is drowning
Stay here with me, we'll wave goodbye as we see them gathering below

I built a bridge so wave goodbye as we cross over it.
I built a bridge to tell you all that the world's worth living in
I built a bridge so wave goodbye as we cross over it
I've built a bridge to tell you all that the world's worth living in.

You always told me it would get better
So Will you keep out all of the sadness, if I asked ?
It's always so hard to be lost within the water
And it's hard being constant without feeling like a bother
Stay with me please, because all is love in this tortured ease
The world is no longer beautiful and I am drowning in it
The world is no longer beautiful

Wait here with me, the world is drowning.
Stay here with me, we'll wave goodbye as we see them gathering below.

I built a bridge, so wave goodbye as we cross over it
I built a bridge, to tell you all that their world is worth shit
I've built a bridge to wave goodbye as we cross over it
I've built a bridge.
