Track Name: Danger Method
So now I'm feeling down
No I don't care where you've been
You got in my head, you're always in my head
You're here next to me, I'm somewhere else instead
Now I can't find myself, you made me someone else.

Cross my heart I hope to die, you never were willing to try. You're taking everything from me, but I'm getting stronger, you can't stop me.

Hang on for one more day, pretending everything's okay
We're only making it cause I'm so far away
You're no angel, you're no angel I'm afraid that I'm not able, I'm not able to stay

You can't stop me, you can't stop me now
You'll never stop me, never stop me now
You'll never stop, you'll never
Track Name: Look Alive
It makes me sick, the way you slipped under my skin
I was so quick to let you in, I wasn't scared
I should have been

Now I'm so tired of sleepless nights,
Convincing myself that I'm right
It's something strange, learning to let go of a lie

Now I accept that you aren't mine, you never were and I can try but I can't make this look like anything but what it is
And maybe I, I was the first, but that's something she will never learn
This is why I can't pretend that it's alright.

Wish you could stay, you've gone away
Tell me to wait, but I can taste you on my tongue, you sit and watch me come undone



It makes me sick, the way you slipped
It makes me sick, under my skin
It makes me sick, the way you slipped under my skin, I let you in
It makes me sick, but I'll let you in again
Track Name: Burning Out
Chase after me like clouds chasing after the sun
I'm losing grip, I'm losing everyone
You said wake up, I don't wanna
You said enough, but it's never
It's never enough

We burn out just like cigarettes
Give my worst when you need my best, what did you expect from this?
Did you think that I'd be alright? Did you think that you'd be alright?
Did you think that we'd be alright, in the end?

Our lives are moving way too quick
Been trying hard to hold on to it, but I'm gone
You said you'd stay, I can't trust you
You said you'd wait, but I wasn't
I wasn't enough

I need you to stay, I need you to say that I'm enough
I need you to take it back, take back all the things we've done
Track Name: Florida
I see them waiting for the next escape
I see them wishing, pretending it's still yesterday
I see them hoping somehow it wont be the same
I'm not hopeful, cause I know some things never change
They never change

I feel you wash over me and I have no regrets at all
I breathe in so deep and I think that I'm starting to fall
Fill my lungs, I'll let you pull me under
I'm here in yesterday forever

Stare at the sky, they're praying for rain
Maybe the wind will blow and change everything
Well I'm not praying cause I know it's always the same

It's always the same, stop waiting, start changing
Well I'm not praying cause I know it's not yesterday
Track Name: DED
Yes, no, maybe so
If you're gone then let me go
Counting down the days and trying to figure out a way to get out
I can see it in your eyes you don't want to fall behind, so keep up

We're not gonna fight a war with no weapons
We're not leaving without somewhere to go
We're not gonna make a sound when they judge us, we can't afford to let our weaknesses show
So let's go

Burn the world down, I'm not afraid to watch everything change for me now. Can't sit still when I know what's waiting to be found.
I knew you, I knew you'd come around

One, two, three, four
Is that your heart down on the floor?
Oh no
Counting down the hours and taking what is ours, so watch out
I can feel it in my bones, story waiting to be told, don't give up.

We're not gonna fight a war that's not worth it
We'll be leaving soon as we find the door
We're not gonna make a sound when you judge us, save your breath cause we have heard it before
So let's go
Track Name: Don't Walk Away
It's just too easy for you to break me
I'm not good at much but I know how to let go
Left my skin in the rain, disintegrated, changed my name
You say in time you're gonna fix it all
10 years of slipping, now watch me fall

You're all I ever wanted, who am I to tell you no? Forces pushing us together, who are you to take control? I'm not afraid, you and I looked god right in the face and I know that I'm alive again.

It's just too easy for you to break free
You're not good at much but you know how to tell me no
Left your skin in the rain, disintegrated, changed your name
You say in time you're gonna fix it all
10 years of slipping, now watch me fall

We're running away, running away from what we know
We're running away, running away to stay in control
We run away, we run away
Let's run away
Let's run away
Track Name: Drag Us Down
I need to scream, cause I can't breathe under the weight of everything
You think it's fair to say that you know me, you don't know anything
When we call you out, get up off the ground, figure yourself out
You can't drag us down

You think you're on a ship that wont sink
You expect us all to know what you mean
When you say you're fine, you don't remember a thing
The rest of us are stuck in the reality
It's taking all I have not to burn everything and walk away with my hands clean



Should I live for you and not for me?
Should I have pushed away what I knew was a good thing?
Should I have read your mind, somehow known that you weren't alright?
I've run out of reasons to apologize
I've run out of reasons to put up a fight
