Track Name: Clockwork's Blueprints For A Flying Machine
This is the perfect sunset,
It's too bad that I'm sick of darkness.
These days, they are the best.
These days shouldn't end like this.
So believe me when I say
That I'm packing up and I'm leaving today.
When I said that I'd see you later,
I didn't know that later meant so soon.

These days are numbered
and are moving fast.
I'm starting to think that I'm wasting my time.
I'm just trying to find a better way,
'Cuz I can't stand the passing of time.

I still remember all the days we spent together,
the time we spent walking out in the sun.
It's not that I lost my motivation,
It's just that I lost my peace of mind.

I'm overthinking and oversleeping,
I just need to get out of this place for a while.
Give me a break from all this stress and conflict,
Give me a place where I can free my mind.

I never thought that we'd make it this far,
Never thought that we'd die under the stars.
Track Name: The Porcelain Knight
We were sitting still,
All across this auburn hill,
With iron hopes and iron will,
Caught up under autumn's spell.
And with the slight of my hand,
I resurrect this all from ashes.
And when the summer comes,
I'll breathe fresh air into my lungs.

These streets are haunted,
(And I'm so sick of)
Being lost, feeling stupid...

These streets are home to things
I never thought I'd miss until the day
That I left them all for good.
These days of shattered homes,
Late night fights and broken bones,
But I hope you know that it felt like home.

Tryin' hard, try my best,
keep my feet on the ground,
I'm comin' up by myself,
With nobody around,
I guess we'll see how this turns out.
Comin' up, come alive,
Put my hands in the air,
Going out with my friends,
with no worries or cares,
I guess we'll see how this ends.

The past we hide,
On dusty shelves,
On late night drives,
We find ourselves,
On dusty shelves,
We find ourselves.

These streets are home to things
I never thought I'd miss until the day
That I left them all for good.
These days of shattered homes,
Late night fights and broken bones,
But I hope you know that it felt like home.

WELL DON'T TAKE THIS THE WRONG WAY,
YOU KNOW I COULDN'T STAY

Cross your heart and say this this won't happen again.
Track Name: The Philosophy of Time Travel
I can tell you my lie,
I can tell you my secret,
But I'm just not sure,
I don't know that you can take it.

And I know exactly how you are,
You shoulder all the blame,
And with every little scar,
You take more of the shame.
Take a deep breath,
Put your pain up on the shelf,
The only person you should aim to please is yourself.
Take a deep breath,
Put your pain up on the shelf,
The only person you should aim to please is yourself.

You'll probably tell me that it's fine
But I can see right through that mask of yours,
Things I've told you over time
Aren't worth the inner wars you wage upon yourself.
I know that I am selfish,
I am counting down the minutes
'Til you say you didn't mean it.

When was the last time you were honest about anything else?
Just like the time I told you that
You blow me off
But then you captivate me.
When I heard you were gone,
I was distraught.
Given a second chance,
You know I'd follow you,
You know I'd follow you down.

And you'll probably tell me that it's fine
But I can see right through that mask of yours,
Things I've told you over time
Aren't worth the inner wars you wage upon yourself.
I know that I am selfish,
I am counting down the minutes
'Til you say you didn't mean it.

Be honest.
Track Name: Spray Paint the Sidewalks
And with our eyes pressed
Against the 2nd story window,
The moment is fleeting,
And I live my life
From a hospital bed.
With so much left undone,
And no way to escape,
If I die here it's all the same!

My sight obscured by thought,
Reminds me of my losses,
I'm looking forward at last
(But I was fast asleep)
To my past in front of me
(But I was fast asleep)
Blurred border between flashback and reality
(But I was fast asleep)
Sadness resonates around this setting naturally
(But I was fast asleep)
And every moment, It's the same sanitary scent
(But I was fast asleep)
That greets my nose with protest and resentment.
And maybe that's why...

Take it back
And give it a chance
And we'll understand
Just how important it was.
And we reflect on just how
Regretful it was
That we could never be (x4)

Don't call,
Don't write.
No kid,
Don't bother.
Track Name: Negative, Ghost Rider
(Danny's laugh)
I woke up this morning
With the taste of blood in my mouth.
But waking up next to you,
Was something I never thought I'd do.

I follow you down the stairs,
And to your back porch.
And I can't help but stare,
You're all I need and more.

Forget the last night,
I never really had you,
But I'm still hoping, girl,
It's all I really can do.
Maybe we can take a second,
Sort this out?
Or maybe we've been thinking
FAR TOO MUCH

So please don't leave me hanging,
On every word I'm saying.
'Cuz I've been
TRYING TO FORGET,
TRYING TO FORGET,
The bullshit between us,
Pick up the pieces,
Rebuild our bridges,
And keep moving forward.

Waking up next to you
Is something I never thought I'd do

I know the feeling's new,
Waking up next to you.

WAKING UP NEXT TO YOU
IS SOMETHING I NEVER THOUGHT I'D DO

THIS PAST
Is always catching up and
THIS PAST
Is always catching up and
THIS PAST
Is always catching up and
THIS PAST
Is always catching up!

I woke up with the taste of blood
In my mouth this morning,
It was then that I knew
Just like my wisdom teeth,
I was growing in a little too soon.
I hope I find my place
In this "mouth" of a world,
Rather than get removed,
I hope I fit in...
RIGHT...
NEXT TO YOU!
(Danny's voice cracks, hahaha BREAKDOWN)
