Track Name: Distance
Counting all of the exit signs
As I get further from you
Wondering how I left this all behind
What else was I supposed to do?

I swear I’ll keep this between us
Should’ve oiled the hinges, they started to rust
I was the only one who had their fingers crossed
Why was I waiting?
What have you done for me lately?

I know you just needed some space to grow
I just wanted you to know
I just wanted you to know

There’s a few things left unsaid

Did you hate me?
Why would you say I didn’t care
About what you wore
I wasn’t there
I’ll take the blame, throw it away
You know these thoughts aren’t new
It’s just what it has to be
(It’s just what it has to be)

It’s been awhile
Waiting on your call for the last few miles

Your selfish attitude makes me unstable
I left a letter on your kitchen table
You’re self-obsessed did you know?
And I’m depressed fastened with your baggage in tow

There’s a few things left unsaid

Did you hate me?
Why would you say I didn’t care
About what you wore
I wasn’t there
I’ll take the blame, throw it away
You know these thoughts aren’t new
It’s just what it has to - be

I didn't care
I wasn't there

I’ll take the blame, throw it away
You know these thoughts aren’t new
It’s just what it has to
Track Name: Lost Invitation
Everything is starting to look clearer
Can’t believe that it’s always been this way
I didn’t like the way that I was living
Been content since i’ve found some better days

Cause all the shit that’s been happening lately has been such a blur that I can’t remember

I felt so high until the feelings all faded
Never needed drugs to feel intoxicated
All the time spent was so damn wasted
And we were so wasted

Stuck in a haze
Can't get caught up in my old ways

Unraveled my thoughts like thread
Saw all the negative things that I did
Heard all the bad things that I ever said
Rewind my life like an old cassette

Cause all the shit that’s been happening lately has been such a blur that I can’t remember

I felt so high until the feelings all faded
Never needed drugs to feel intoxicated
All the time spent was so damn wasted
And we were so wasted

Now it’s grown on me
Roots broke through my skull, I fell down to my knees
How could I be so blind?
It's been twined around my mind

I felt so high until the feelings all faded
Never needed drugs to feel intoxicated
All the time spent was so damn wasted
And we were so wasted

It's just a lost invitation
Track Name: Empty Handed
It’s getting late
My hands are shaking
And I’ll never get back all the time that I’ve been wasting
Keep trying to find the words but nothing comes to mind
All along searching for progress, just running blind

Don’t leave me empty handed

I’ve been living in such disarray
Lost my mind, now i’m lonely
I hope I live to see another day
Before the knife in my back fucking kills me

You’re a thief (you’re a thief)
I just needed relief
I’ll never regain all the self respect that you took from me
And I keep telling myself this was all a lie
Ill ease my mind with a pen to get me by

I was left broken and stranded (I felt alone next to you)
Don’t leave me empty handed

I’ve been living in such disarray
Lost my mind, now i’m lonely
I hope I live to see another day
Before the knife in my back fucking kills me

Every time I gave myself to you
How could I admit you were counterfeit?

I’ve been living in such disarray
Lost my mind, now i’m lonely
I hope I live to see another day
Before the knife in my back fucking kills me

Don’t leave me empty handed
I was too lonely
Track Name: Oakland Ave
They told me
That we would never amount to anything
We’re never solo
And we live for these days

And we told them
That they would never bring us down again
We’ve waited so long
And it looks like this has changed

Lately we just sit around and laugh about
All the things we did before we grew older
We wanted so much more

I don’t want it to get colder
Can it stay this way all year?
Because my friends and me love the summer heat
It felt like yesterday when it was the first of May
We all know this to be exactly what we need

My friends and me were making history
Stuck between the memories, what’s left for me
We were never ones to disagree and

Most nights when we didn't have
Anything other then Oakland ave
We'd hang around this run down town
With nothing to do but spin our thumbs around

I don’t want it to get colder
Can it stay this way all year?
Because my friends and me love the summer heat
It felt like yesterday when it was the first of May
We all know this to be exactly what we need

The bonds they grew much stronger
When we would stay out longer
It was always such a good sign
That this wouldn’t be the last time

The bonds they grew much stronger
When we would stay out longer
It was all we need to get by
And our well will never run dry

I don’t want it to get colder
Can it stay this way all year?
Because my friends and me love the summer heat
It felt like yesterday when it was the first of May
We all know this to be exactly what we need
Track Name: Figure You Out
I’ll climb the fence to our old apartment,
Hoping someday maybe this could be different
Well I was all too wrong
I never got to see what happened that evening
You were far away from me (far away from me)
Standing in the rain, I was waiting patiently

I wont let this be the same place that you left me

You know exactly what this is about
I’m trying to figure you out
And I woke up to see
The person I used to know
Change in front of me

My brain was scattered
The mirror in your bathroom shattered on the floor
They could hear us from next door
You’ve looked past these feelings
Your disguise, so unappealing
You’re hard to please while I’m standing by myself, my arms tired and weak

I wont let this be the same place that you left me

You know exactly what this is about
I’m trying to figure you out
And I woke up to see
The person I used to know
Change in front of me

I'll tear these pages from our book
Disregard everything you took from me, so casually
These holes in the dry wall remind me of the space in your chest where your heart should've been

You know exactly what this is about
I’m trying to figure you out
