Track Name: Anthem
I'd like to meet your friends
If you can bring them outside your head
I don't bite you can tell them
But I'll exterminate our mutual pains

Loneliness sent you here
To see if I have lost mind
I've told you before, I don't need you here
In my eyes, in my head, get out of my way

Loneliness sent you here
To kill away the rest of me
Loneliness is my anthem
Loneliness is my anthem

How are you, my darling?
Stretch your legs its time to run
I'm being chased by a bear
All he wants is a better day

Seems to me you can fight him
Imma call you to arms, take him outside
Before you kill the bear, ask him if he knows
What it means to take a life

Loneliness sent you here
To kill away the rest of me
Loneliness is my anthem
Loneliness is my anthem

And if I try, you will remind me of the
Things I have to live for
And I don't care how I live
As long as I share it with you

Loneliness is my anthem
Track Name: Tinted Windows
Drawing conclusions from half-written thoughts
Half-written memories of what you are not
Black and gray, white is gone
Everyone has done some wrong
Things would make more sense if I lost it, if I lost it

Lend me a window, lend me a window
I'll tint the glass how I like
You get the window and I'll get the door
It doesn't bother me no more
It doesn't bother me no more

Tunnel vision; you put your head on my shoulder
It doesn't mean what it does
I don't believe you because
I've seen you lie before
I've seen you lie before
I've seen you lie before

So lend me a window, lend me a window
I'll tint the glass how I like
You get the window and I'll get the door
It doesn't bother me no more
It doesn't bother me no more
Track Name: No Way
When you call me down to your level
I lose control over what I know
Seeking out my flaws to make me appear like
I am less than you… but I can tell you

No way, I will make you repay me for what
You made me do to my friends, to my life, there’s no
Hope for you, and there’s not much you can do now that
You have shown us what you’re capable of

And when you kiss me I’ll be looking for
Someone else who I cannot ignore
Don’t hold me tighter, you’re no fighter
I don’t need to see you anymore

Can’t seem to believe anything you’ve told me
I’m not used to seeing my self like this
You don’t understand what you’ve done, and you’ve caused me to
Do to myself… now I say

No way, I will make you repay me for what
You made me do to my friends, to my life, there’s no
Hope for you, and there’s not much you can do now that
You have shown us what you’re capable of

And when you kiss me I’ll be looking for
Someone else who I cannot ignore
Don’t hold me tighter, you’re no fighter
I don’t need to see you anymore

And when you kiss me I’ll be looking for
Someone else who I cannot ignore
Don’t hold me tighter, you’re no fighter
I don’t need to see you anymore
Track Name: Please Believe Me
You don’t know me
I’m no animal
You can’t see me
I’m no machine
You can’t blame me
It’s your fault you care, not my own
You can’t fix me
I’m not broken

Please believe me
Don’t wanna hurt you
Don’t wanna stay here
Please believe me
I’m breakin out

You don’t know me
Or my problems
I don’t need you
On my shoulder
You put the blame
On me
But it’s a shame
You wont listen

Please believe me
Don’t wanna hurt you
Don’t wanna stay here
Please believe me
I’m breakin out

It’s your pain, not mine
It’s your game, not mine
It’s your pain, not mine
It’s your game, not mine
Track Name: No One Will Wonder Why
Take a break from the volume
Before we all lose our heads
It's a spiral, my friend
And you're going the wrong way
Can you stand what you are
You're a glistening blob of shit

I am not entertained
By what you have to offer me now
You can stop when you want
No one will wonder why

Stay away from 300
Glistening men and violence turn you on
No one can stand you now
I can see where you're going next

I am not entertained
By what you have to offer me now
You can stop when you want
No one will wonder why

I said no one will wonder why
I said no one will wonder
No one will wonder
No one will wonder why
Track Name: Not the Same
I can't tell if you are what I need
I can't see any farther than you can
Won't you come away from this mess
You don't see what I could do while you're gone

And I'm sorry if you don't believe me
I understand but I cannot pretend
I don't want you to stress over this mess
But it's hard not to care

It's not the same

Sleep tight as my roommate has his share
I choke on my own craving for
Please let me sleep I can't enjoy myself like that
Just take me away from this hellhole

And I reach for my weed and I prepare to
Compensate for how much longer it will be
Before I can say that you're my own
Oh no

Its not the same

I can't tell if you are what I need
And I can't see any farther than you can
Track Name: You're the One Who's Upside Down
I open the window
And the world tells me to close up
Now that I've had my share
And all I remember is blue and brown
Just like your eyes
I'm feeling so blind
Just like your eyes

And I turn the lights on
And I think I can make out your face
Against a colourful backdrop
And you're looking warmer than you are
Colder than I can withstand
You're looking warmer than you are
Colder than I can withstand

You're the one who's upside down
I'm not crazy I just found myself
In a place where you're not
Let me gaze into your eyes
So I can see through your disguise
But all I see is my reflection

I enter the doorway
And a million fragments of nothing
Stop me before I can look around
At all of the notebooks
Inside your head
Everything's dead
Inside your head

You're the one who's upside down
I'm not crazy I just found myself
In a place where you're not
Let me gaze into your eyes
So I can see through your disguise
But all I see is my reflection

Tell me I'm wrong, nothing hurts this bad
I'm too far away
Tell me I'm wrong, I've done nothing right

You're the one who's upside down
I'm not crazy I just found myself
In a place where you're not
Let me gaze into your eyes
So I can see through your disguise
But all I see is my reflection

I open the window
And the world tells me to close up
Now that I've had my share
And all I remember is blue and brown
Just like your eyes
I'm feeling so blind
Just like your eyes
Track Name: Looking Up
What makes you think
Makes you lose your mind
You will run out
Before you run out of time

He hears his life in reverse
His lucid mind is his curse
Watch him get in a box
And pay attention to clocks
He drowns himself everywhere
He refuses the air
He doesn't need to fly
The lake's as good as the sky

Looking up
Looking up

He doesn't need to fly
The lake's as good as the sky
Ties a brick to his feet
Steps away from the street
At the edge of the bridge he looks down
He looks down
He looks down

...and he sees himself
And he sees himself looking up

When he falls, when he falls
When he falls, he'll be able to see
He will become the symmetry
Track Name: Sunblock
All of the things I've said
And all of the things I've done
Nothing matters now cuz

You can't understand what I am
trying not to say to you
I don't know how long I can keep this up
I give up
I don't see how you could believe me if I
Told you how I feel
Why don't you just turn around and
Get out of the light, out of my life
Stop blocking out the sun

Can't hold me down forever, I will escape
Can't hold me down forever, I will escape
Can't hold me down forever, I will escape
Can't hold me down forever, I will escape

All of the things I've done
And all of the things I've said
Nothing matters now
Track Name: To Us
I'm so cold when her other half is there
Fighting through the smoke, fighting isn't fair
Can't look at her face for fear that I'll see something
I pretend not to care
She belongs to him

Come to your place - it's all uphill
Pushing through the pavement, I am pushing still
We made everything I had been missing
It took too long to go beyond the kissing
I belong to her

Drums are beating and screams are the background
But we can't hear them over the primal sound
The room becomes a battlefield and blazing sun devours me
Loose this war and win what I will always need
We belong to us
We belong to us
We belong to us
