This won't be forgotten There's secrets inside the fists we form Reasons for the sides that we walk on Words spoken in Boston and written in stone And I've never had a friend that I've left alone I've never left my friends alone
I'm afraid i'll lose myself A part of my heart left in someone else Kids like us will be alone forever Kids like us will be alone together
Lighthouse 01:09
I will hang your smiles on hooks Break your fingers to hold my hand Lock you inside my picture of you And keep it face down I will know you like no one else I will use your eyes to see myself Nobody else can know what you mean to me Our closeness will be legendary Our love will be hated I'll take your tongue and Make them see your kisses drying on me We are one for how long?
The world won't end when I close my eyes Sometimes I wish it would Imagine the faces of strangers exploding Life ain't too short, its too fucking long And I live in regret Your scars aren't shaped like mine It's hard for me to trust anyone And that's what hurts the most I've got a heart that I can't open And fists that I keep closed Memories are knives At the throat of hope "Blisters on the lips of cupid" And you never knew me Cuts across your pretty face I can't sing myself to sleep at night Cut the bonds that hold your back Burn the bridges that you despise Stick with the kids that have your back String up all the fucking liars There's nothing wrong with anger
How much time do I have left? Everyday is like a bullet in the head The pain of seeing what I've become Is more than I can stand Blink an eye, the years go by And things change so fucking fast Nobody told me that growing up Would mean growing apart You make friends, you lose friends You find love, your heart breaks You look back, and break down So many questions, I'm not finding any answers
Alone at night i think about what i'd do if the person i was meant to be - ever shines through how i spend my days trying to be the kind of kid that you want close to you and i kno how this one ends we want the ones that we can't have so what the fuck is wrong with me? Why can't I let go of you? The first time all I saw were your eyes And now I can't stand to look inside them It's not your distance that's killing me It's being close to you that makes me close to myself And I can't stand the way I am I push away the ones who love me And I embrace the apathy And hang from all your lies And if I could I'd take back my words And heal my heart If I could i'd take back the secrets My stitched up heart If I could I'd forget your face A brand new start If I could I'd show you how You tore me apart
Turn Cold 01:23
You call it growing up come to terms with all the years that you spent fucking up And to wipe away your tears I've lost myself And time hasn't changed a thing I'm still a fucking kid Trying to deal with his mistakes I'm sick of pressing on Cause shit still ain't making sense And no matter how hard I try My life is still a fucking mess I've lost myself And time hasn't changed a thing I'm still a fucking kid Trying to deal with his mistakes Crushes on and dreaming Keeping to ourselves I drown myself - but it proves I care I still can't forget those years
I'm pulling you to me my fingers in your wounds ice storms won't water your eyes pressing the truth from you if it's me or nothing - choose nothing there's nothing right with me nothing i'm just making myself colder innocence set to time you can tell there's something wrong You can see it in my eyes If it's me or nothing - choose nothing There's nothing right with me - nothing Now left to your own devices It's a quarter to three and you can't breathe She's downstairs covering her eyes And wishing you'd leave So break a bottle and cut me up I'm stuck between right and wrong Feeling good about myself Or finding reasons to write songs Setting myself up for a fall It doesn't matter what they think about you What matters is your own arms around you Live with yourself Can you make it alone? Or do you reach out with your eyes closed
Fists are raised find our way to trust we are tied A generation of fucked up kids hiding behind black eyes Gangs of youth points to prove don't get in our way We've grown up in this way of life and this is where we'll stay Take a look around you This is my life This is the only thing keeping me alive This town means the world to me and I've seen blood come and go I've seen the best of them find their way and I've seen them fucking fall It's the friendship within ourselves that keeps this scene alive Next time you see a friend falling grab them and pull them by your side Everyone of you means the world to me I wouldn't trade this for anything We've got to stick together There's nothing left but us Screaming ourselves down the dark streets Waiting for the sun Our choice is made
Pale 01:47
I'll tuck the soil around your unborn heads What the fuck was I thinking of? I'm sorry for the things I said I'll tip my glass to misery and pour it on your graves I can't believe I wasn't there for you I fall asleep with a gun in my mouth Because of all the things I did And I can't be at peace with myself Unless you know I cared My hand against your cheek So in the dark I could feel you smile
My hands are open Can`t you see them being burned This faith is the deepest You could ask for what`s remembered With the guilt wrapped around our necks That`s right I just stopped what I didn`t start I missed the chance that will never come Better to regret what I have done I`d give anything just to forget A smile so worthwhile But you can only rent it My hands are open
