Lyrics

Find It In Me

This house is full of secrets that I
Have kept from her for far too long
I hope I make it through the day

My conduct should be suspect and my
Intentions should be checked but I'm to
Involved in making plans for my soul

Her heart is should of kindness that she's
Given away and now she is tired
Of all the parts of life that she made

She tries to help out everyone
But I can only help myself
I question whether she knows she's safe

I hope you find it
Cause I could not find it in me
I hope you find it
Cause I could not find it in me

I can't say when I'll leave you for good
My selfish heart hopes you don't go first
God knows I couldn't make it one day

I'll ask that you find someone to help
Like you treat me like you were myself
You broke your back to make it okay

These parts of life that I cannot hold
You carry me along with your load
Your more than I could ever repay

I hope you find it (I hope you find it)
Cause I could not find it in me (Cause i could not find it in me)
I hope you find it (I hope you find it)
Cause I could not find it in me (Cause i could not find it in me)
I hope you find it (I hope you find it)
Cause I could not find it in me (Cause i could not find it in me)
I hope you find it (I hope you find it)
Cause I could not find it in me
(Cause I could not find it in me)

Passion Play

I should not have hid where my heart can't follow,
'cause this grace gets so far and too hard to swallow.
I've been running from Saul, he's been giving chase;
when I look in his eyes, all I see is my face.

You're still on my back after all these years,
chasing me out of hell and my nice veneers.
I don't know how you stand when you've got no floor,
or how you can breathe with your hands on boards.

I just want to be not what I am today,
I just want to be better than my friends might say,
I just want a small part in your passions play.

Do you hear when I call in the midst of wrong?
Do you hear these here words while I sing this song?
Are you caught up in me like I heard you say,
or just some big cashier that I'll have to pay?

'Just want to be not what I am today,
I just want to be better than my friends might say,
I just want a small part in your passions play.

Candy

She faces me with consignation, in her eyes
Though she’s facing, some direction, I can't find

In this darkness, with no color, black and white
Sun's as dark as, moonlight shadow, in her mind

I can walk along this road, without a guide

But I can't walk into your gates, without her sigh

Incubation meant to save your, fragile life
Oxygen that keeps me breathing, took your sigh

I can walk along this road, without a guide
But I can't walk into your gates, without your sigh
I can walk along this road, without a guide
But I can't walk into your gates, without your sigh

When I Come Home

Ain't seen you in quite a while
Seems I forgot how your face looked when you smiled
The interest in you that I gave
The interest in me that you faked

Have you heard that I'm coming home
As much as I can? I've always been out on the road
I'll let you know when I'm in town
So I just might see you when you come around

Turn on the light, ready or not
I'm not what you wanted, but I'm what you've got
Open the door roll, out the mat
Welcome is welcome, but you'll take it back
When I come home

I wish it could be like it was
When we were young, those memeries fading to dust
I'll let you know when I'm in town
So I just might see you when you come around

Turn on the light, ready or not
I'm not what you wanted, but I'm what you've got
Open the door, roll out the mat
Welcome is welcome, but you'll take it back
I'm burden and bound, you're on the loose
I feel secure, so untie this noose
Gasping for air, trying to get free
You say you'll find me, I say we'll see
When I come home

Funeral Dress

On a rack in a store for a discount price
But the color’s been changed to a black from white
Though the difference will probably be lost on me
Anyways
And don’t worry if laughter is on your lips
Cause you wouldn’t be you if you changed for this
And I won’t measure love from the tears that drip
From your face
I can't wait for you
I can't wait for you

I suppose I should hope that it turns out fine
But I hope that some sadness does cross your mind
And you’ll look for me when you have crossed that line
Come one day
I can't wait for you
I can't wait for you
I can't wait for you

My Life Changed

You had this pattern of repeating every word that you would say
Every word that you would say
Till I met you with a sigh and to this day I still regret
How I made you go away
I saw the whole world from your eyes, at least the glimpse you let me see
And what a glimpse you let me see
But your eyes can never stretch, over boundaries made in stone
I’m afraid that’s what will be

I imagine if I had another chance
To tell you all the things I should have said
We’d still find ourselves content in circumstance
But I’m content to say this anyway

The day that you were hit by that car
My life changed
I was lost and out of touch, with the way you made me feel
With the way you make me feel
Everyday just passes now, and I can’t count them on my own
And your face is never real
I imagine if I had another chance
To tell you all the things I should have said
We’d still find ourselves content in circumstance
But I’m content to say this anyway

Forsake All Others

I've waited for this day for such a long time
you are everything I’ve waited for
if memory says I might be disappointed
cause a lifetime here with you will seem to short

all I see is white that's coming towards me
all I’ve wanted you within my arms
if it's required that I forsake all others
I’ll do that and more

I’ve waited for this day for such a long time
I hope that I can be what you deserve
I hope the days get longer
and make this love grow stronger
god will be the strength and our reason

Kylie

She spent most her life on the floor with her heart
To this she's condemned and can never be part
She tries by herself on a debt to pay
I don't think today's gonna be a day

Those cuts on her arm didn't come from shame
That past in denial and accusation
Those thoughts in her head will soon come true
A tragic display of dreamers consumed

The hand cannot reach to the phone of her soul
Perhaps that's the lesson I've got to learn
Her body was found on a Sunday
Her spirit found rest or heartbeat unturned

And I will sleep to get there
And I will sleep together
And I will sleep to get there
And I will sleep together

She spent most her life on the floor with her heart
x3

(Faded and Combined)
Hallelujah
And I
Hallelujah
And I will sleep to get there
Hallelujah
And I will sleep to get there
She spent most her life on the floor
Hallelujah
And I will sleep together
Hallelujah
And I
She spent most her life on the floor with her heart
Hallelujah
And I will sleep to get there
(repeat)

Problem of Pain

Dialogue on weather, breathing in the pound
Faithful first-time meeting, life is in the ground

Icarus caught you where they tumbled on
Encourage you to dive now where the sun has gone

I just don’t know
I just don’t know

Aah…

Moon is torn asunder over faulty two
Guillotines in shackles, heads roll for a few

I just don’t know
I just don’t know
I just don’t know
I just don’t know

Aah…

When You Were Young

15 months and they would drag you from your throne, but you ain't got no place to go. You were the bad one from the day that you were born.

You can run. I don't think that you can hide.

Have you found the knife and cigarettes in your locker with your books? Smoking weed with Joe and Rock inside his house.

You can run. I don't think that you can hide.
Mom wants you to come back home. She keeps crying when I call her on the phone. Won't you give this thing a chance?

You are not what you were when you were young. You are not what you were when you were young.

I was fucked up when you needed me the most. Trying to starve myself to death. I still feel like I did something that was wrong.

You can run. I don't that you can hide.
Mom wants you to come back home. She keeps crying when I call her on the phone. Won't you give this thing a chance?

You are not what you were when you were young. You are not what you were when you were young.

(Repeats chorus)

Shattered

Broadest road that I can travel
I am drawn by what I see
Spirit living deep inside me
Is fighting to be free

I'm a homeless man who's trying (And i do not have a home yet)
Find a place to lay his head
Find some comfort in this journey (Just another taste of pleasure)
At least before I’m dead

There she is inside, waiting on another
Chance to make it right
There she waits until
Her brokenness can brake her
And finally be still

And these sidewalks speak of demons (There are demons all around me)
They are stepping on my toes
And my head just spins in circles (I can't even stop this movement)
Round and round it goes

And I’ve got so many pipers
(And I think I hear my song now)
Leading me right to my death
I'm a slave to my indifference
(And I’m comfortable in chains now)
I'm a corpse with borrowed breath

There she is inside, waiting on another
Chance to make it right
There she waits until
Her brokenness can brake her
And finally be still

There she is inside, waiting on another
Chance to make it right
There she waits until
Her brokenness can brake her
And finally be still
