Track Name: Fracture
You’re a prism for my mood, you would refract all my light through you
You turned my white light into colors I never knew
But now things just aren’t the same, you’re slowly fading out of frame
Now when I shine my light on you, it only darkens as it passes through
Track Name: Dead Weight
The day you left was weeks before you walked away
When the hours I waited were eating at me every day
Each minute spent for you, each moment overdue, I’m hoping that you can feel this pain too
This trust we grew, now it’s rotted through, I’ll burn what is left and then trample the ashes

I’m not lost, I’m just losing this dead weight, these steps behind me a path I won’t retrace
I’ll burn this book instead of turning a new page, the last chapter in the tale of you and me

Leave you in the rearview where I finally see you for what you are
A dim light in the distance you shine and you flicker like a fading star
But I know, your light went out long ago
(Take only what you need, I’m taking what I need)

I’m not lost, I’m just losing this dead weight, these steps behind me a path I won’t retrace
I’ll burn this book instead of turning a new page, the last chapter in the tale of you and me

The day you left was weeks before you walked away
When the hours I waited were eating at me every day
Ripped from the binding we can start again, I’d rather burn these words than make amends
(I’m not lost)
Leave you in the rearview where I finally see you for what you are
Track Name: Haunt
I’m writing you because my mind won’t let me sleep
I’ve gone for months without your touch, I’d go through hell to hear you speak
And what do you have in mind? Because I’ll do whatever you’d like
We used to spend our days thinking of better ways to help us feel alive

In my dreams I am holding you
In my dreams I grow old with you

One day, one day
You’ll look at me as the ghost inside the person you used to love
One day, darling one day
You’ll look at me as the ghost inside the person you used to love

Take me now, break me down, and make me feel whole again
Because as of now, all I have is this hole inside my chest
You always took me for a fool, I’m still the biggest one for you

One day, one day
You’ll look at me as the ghost inside the person you used to love
One day, darling one day
You’ll look at me as the ghost inside the person you used to love

I knew I never should have stayed in a home I grew to hate
Track Name: Passenger
I’m the reason for the pressure that was pressed against your temple like a loaded gun
Inside the chamber was a bullet holding every way of telling me that you were done
So let’s bury ourselves and hide away from the doubt that pollutes our lives
I’ll be damned if I spend my time knowing that we never gave this thing a try

So let’s sing about 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9, for the odds stacked against us but it still felt right
Spending my nights with you, wasting my breath on you, oddly enough

Never say never and don’t say forever it’s just not right
Because I never thought that you would leave his passenger seat when I saw you that night
So let’s flee from this broken town and never come back, until the day we die
They can bury us together, I can pass in peace knowing we gave this thing a try
We’ll never give it a try
We’ll never give this thing a try

So let’s sing about 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9, for the odds stacked against us but it still felt right
Spending my nights with you, wasting my breath on you, oddly enough
Track Name: Shallow
Prepare excuses, your words are useless, keep using people until the people around you run out
Keep making pretend, become so distant, sacrifice feelings for things, with ill intent

Now I realize the glint that I saw in your eyes was just reflecting off of mine, you had no feelings you just mirrored mine
So use me up and spend me until I’m gone
Just take what you want, and what’s left of me is moving on

You and me weren’t meant to be, it isn’t poetry since nothing about you is deep
Your shallow waters were just mud to my feet
You and me weren’t meant to be, it isn’t poetry since nothing about you holds meaning
We’re not a fairytale worth believing

I saw into my future and you’re not there, the tiniest shadow standing where you used to be
A hole in the plan I failed to see
It’s just a game to you, a checkerboard of blue, throw out those feelings I felt
I wasn’t part of your plan, you found a better man (I’m just a notch in your belt)

You and me weren’t meant to be, it isn’t poetry since nothing about you is deep
Your shallow waters were just mud to my feet
You and me weren’t meant to be, it isn’t poetry since nothing about you holds meaning
We’re not a fairytale worth believing

I never even tried to see through your disguise
I just wanted the surface the feeling was perfect until it died

You and me weren’t meant to be, it isn’t poetry since nothing about you is deep
Your shallow waters were just mud to my feet
You and me weren’t meant to be, it isn’t poetry since nothing about you holds meaning
We’re not a fairytale worth believing
