Track Name: Heartbreakers
it's feeling like we're bleeding out
on borrowed time
with backs turned on every sideline
the frequency's dulled to a hiss
but i still miss
the thrashing of thunder with you

so rip through the steel
that thing that you feel is alive well and real
and i still see inferno and passion exploding within you
it's not poetry
it's pieces of me so let's splinter the wood against metal
and scream til the restlessness settles

we were the heartbreakers

i remember she said
don't be ashamed of what you give
i'm burning out in your direction
i remember she said
don't be ashamed of what you give
i'm thrashing like thunder with you

i'm thrashing like thunder for you
Track Name: Curses
it took 3 weeks for me to lose my grip
the same for you to crawl inside
i know you feel my fingers start to slip
whenever you cross my mind
and were those real tears falling on the line?
or runoff from your past denied - you decide
i am the vein submitting to the drug
and you're the needle every time

what we show is all we know
you've got time to push your knife in slow

she said that if you wait for me
then when it hurts, you'll break for me
we've got time to drag this out
we've got time to drag this whole thing out
drag it out

tell me the dream from the couch again
are we cursed for things we did?
did i finally become the mistake that you'd let yourself make?
and you're so sure - i should never ask
while your walls go up and your heart looks back
yeah, i'm under your water and i'm thinking they'll find me below

she said that if you wait for me
then when it hurts, you'll break for me
we've got time to drag this out
we've got time to drag this whole thing out

i laid it all on the line for you
i can get the tattoo on my own
yeah your silence - it suits you
and i'm thinkin' they'll find me below
when you go
and walk away
walk away

she said that if you wait for me
then when it hurts, you'll break for me
we've got time to drag this out
we've got time to drag this whole thing out
Track Name: Saving April
i spent a lot of time locked in my shell feeling stuck with my head down
now the sun feels like it shines off my heart like a new tattoo
i had to learn to let it go when it came to the hurt and the heartbreak
but your voice when i awake has me convinced that i could break like new
that i could break like new
totally lost in you

you can't tell me - can't you tell i'm in love with allison
you can't tell me nothin'
you can't tell me - can't you tell i'm in love with allison
i'm in love with allison

it's not rescue if you don't wanna be saved
but i'd walk all the way to cleveland for you
jeopardy reruns with your favorite dog
could live on haribo forever with you

you can't tell me - can't you tell i'm in love with allison
you can't tell me nothin'
you can't tell me - can't you tell i'm in love with allison
straight to the moon, exceptional
i'll sing to you, irrational

you can't tell me - can't you tell i'm in love with allison
you can't tell me - can't you tell i'm in love with allison
i'm in love with allison
Track Name: Inscription
i'm kicking at rocks - the same empty stones that i left here
the alleyway gray on 173rd
corroding - my home, like all the mistakes that i made here
that alleyway gray and a silence like you've never heard

most people say they don't care - but i care
i'm still holding on to my somewhere to start
keep tripping and falling and making my mark some way

maybe the shine is all gone and long dulled away
and this place is a place to exist - a place for the downed outs and struggle
buried beneath my own rusted exterior, and diligent next to the lake
i'll build this thing up from the bottom

most people say they don't care - but i care
i'm still holding on to my somewhere to start
(keep tripping and falling and making my mark some way

and when you're not sure what you should do
and this world's gotten the best of you
you're feeling like there's nothing left
don't ever forget all that you've been through
your spirit's your own foot in front of you
so take that first step
