Track Name: Sleeping Pills
I fear not the dark but the daylight
I feel free from these bones at night.
I poured all of my wealth into the wishing well
Hoped for the world I see when I close my eyes

And you fade out like a breath on a window pane,
Now you barely answer to your name

In your sleep
You’ve been holding on too long
(You’re barely holding on)
In your dreams
The only place you feel you belong.
You belong.

I feel like I’m trapped on the outside
I am free in this cage of mine
I buried myself inside a living hell
Get me out of this world I see when I close my eyes

You bathed in rivers of your misery
You drown in it’s water.
But I search for you through the deepest black
In hope that it will bring you back

In your sleep
You’ve been holding on too long
(You’re barely holding on)
In your dreams
The only place you feel you belong.
You belong

It took your mind, it took my friend
And led you astray
And I can’t bear to watch you wither away.
You’re lost on a path that sadness paved
With a handful of sleeping pills
You’ll dream away the day

In your sleep
You’ve been holding on too long
(You’re barely holding on)
In your dreams
The only place you feel you belong.
You belong
Track Name: Shadow Poet
You say what I am, is a shadow of what I could have been
But it was your love that took what I was
I’ll be fine and that’s where we differ
Cause I’m bone dry, you’re drowning in the river
And if only the water was as shallow as you

Trying to find your self through another person’s eyes
Say you’re happy in your own skin while selecting your disguise
And now you trade the poetry in your soul
For tired lines and exhausted metaphors

What ever happened to the kid who wanted to be free?

You say what I am, is a shadow of what I could have been
But it was your love that took what I was
I’ll be fine and that’s where we differ
Cause I’m bone dry, you’re drowning in the river
And if only the water was as shallow as you

You always change the rules to complement your lies
But were you really so scared I’d see it in your eyes?
And all I see is a door for me to use
To walk straight back to the life I once knew

What ever happened to the kid who wanted to be free?

You say what I am, is a shadow of what I could have been
But it was your love that took what I was
I’ll be fine and that’s where we differ
Cause I’m bone dry, you’re drowning in the river
And if only the water was as shallow as you

I’ll be fine and that’s where we differ
Cause I’m bone dry, you’re drowning in the river
Track Name: The Cliffs As A Reminder
I can feel the air giving up on my lungs tonight
And I just wasn’t prepared for the war in my head my thoughts waged that I couldn’t fight

Dear ghost in the walls, I’m calling out to you.
Teach me how to hide, hide like you do.
If I could, I’d just fade out and disappear
But I’m scared for my family that I might not see out this year

I’ll hold me breath & pray that my light and dark coalesce
(You helped stop my light from fading)
I guess the saddest part of my trip to the edge
Is that it was your voice that talked me down from the ledge

They say that silence is a violent way to speak
And every word you never said, I heard them all
I still feel the shame and every piece of blame
What a sad excuse for a man, I am

Dear ghost in the walls, I’m calling out to you.
Teach me how to hide, hide like you do.
If I could, I’d just fade out and disappear
But I’m scared for my family that I might not see out this year

I’ll hold me breath & pray that my light and dark coalesce
(You helped stop my light from fading)
And I guess the saddest part of my trip to the edge
Is that it was your voice that talked me down from the ledge

(I know you’ll find your way someday)
I’ll hold me breath & pray that my light and dark coalesce
(You helped stop my light from fading)
And I guess the saddest part of my trip to the edge
Is that it was your voice that talked me down from the ledge
Track Name: Fear Life
Why can’t I seem to feel life anymore?
(No more)
As my eyes roll back and I slide down the wall.
Like a frightened child I shy away.
Senseless in this state of mind
That I can’t define

Why do I so despise every single view behind these eyes?
And that transcends to the outside.
I’ve lost all feeling in a world without meaning
I have no will to survive

The haunted thoughts of my distant times
Won’t let me sleep at all these nights
I reconcile with soft white lies
To remind myself I’m still alive

Lover, Im sorry. Mother, I’m scared.
I couldn’t feel your love but I knew it was there
Brother, I’m worried. Father, I’m scared.
I couldn’t feel your love but I knew it was there

Why do I so despise every single view behind these eyes?
And that transcends to the outside.
I’ve lost all feeling in a world without meaning
I have no will to survive

If only I could change
Concentrate and rearrange.
Seek a place to find recovery.

I could’ve walked into the waves
Jumped headfirst from off the bridge
And I wanted you to know
You’re why I never did.
