Track Name: Black Letter Day
[instrumental]
Track Name: End Of Bagwells [part two]
From left to right, we fight the tides. The ones we left behind, force them to cry. Becoming slaves to ghosts, as we ignite the coast. We sail into the night. We've made our plans to die.

Remember this was meant to be, because we’re running were running.
Remember this is how we wanted to be, because we’re running were running.
Track Name: Worst Part
I felt the pain and its gone to long as the tension builds up. Why are we jealous? We have it all. I felt the pain and its gone to long as the tension builds up. We are rebellious. It hides within us all.

Controlling their throwing us down. The madness begins and trust turns to hate as the world loses faith. I can’t comprehend this welcome to the slaughter fest.

[We wrote songs about home, how the scenery affected our families. These poisoned apple kids, don't have much to live for.]

The worst part came first you did it to me. I am the breath held within your chest and I won’t leave. If i can take it all away then you'll see. I am the breath held within your chest why won’t you breath.
Track Name: We Know
This is for the days that you spent doing nothing and this is for the hours that you put in doing everything and this is for the first time let alone the worst time. And this is for believing in yourself when you've had enough.

Can you pick it up, as the universe burns. Can you put yourself back together as it hurts. Can you pick it up, as the universe turns. Can you put yourself back together.

Day after day this is getting old. How many headaches does it take, don’t break, just take it slow. If you want it then you need it, this is what i know. If you love it then you hate it, this is what we know.

Can you pick it up, as the universe burns. Can you put yourself back together.
Track Name: Middle
Staring out for days this is my home that gave. A place to eat a place to breath a place with all that i need. Say what you want but we're sticking with it. You are alone, but you're never stranded. There rising on the east coast, there flying in the west coast, we're diving in the middle were surviving in the middle. Say what you want but were sticking with it. You are alone, you'll always be alone.

Say what you want and were sticking with it. and let go, just let go.
Staring out for days this is my home that gave. A place to eat a place to breath a place with all that i need. Say what you want but we're sticking with it. and let go. just let go.
Track Name: Pillars
Four days have just passed me by, I was given four days to live my life. Four days just me and myself, because soon it was going to be the end.

I never came from a broken home, but i know how it feels to be alone.
Track Name: Hollow [feat. Matt Fitzpatrick of My Iron Lung]
It’s the way we live that makes us whole, because you're still hollow you’re so hollow.

Your self centered state of mind will choose your fate it’s too late, I hope your use to going nowhere. Our constant lack of better terms does not exceed your greed, you're mediocre, unexceptional.

[So keep your distance, keep your mind off me. Onto better things, onto better ways of living. You've got a common tendency to regret everything you do.]

It’s the way we live that makes us whole because your still hollow you’re so hollow. It’s the way you are that makes us cold, because you’re so hollow you're always hollow.
Track Name: Sara Jones [feat. Dylan Mattheisen of Tiny Moving Parts]
The air we breathe flows through the trees and were happy. I stop to think to myself could this last forever. The children play throughout the day, it’s so perfect. I can’t think to myself, but we enjoy the weather.

[Well nothing is new, because i'm still sick.
But the way my brain accelerates seems to fabricate the pain
and when you look up do you think to yourself.
Would it be nice to swim inside the sky.
I want to drown in the clouds, I want to drown in the clouds. ]

My mind is racing, I don’t know who I’m talking to anymore. You hide that pressure inside but your alive so let it out. We had a close call, but after all you let it out. Now make your move, I stopped to think to myself.
Track Name: Where I Should Be
I’ve spent my whole life in my own bed. Mostly thinking and a little too much sleeping. I like to think I’m content where I am, but i struggle with my own thoughts.

I know where i am and like to pretend where i could be, where i should be. With all the wrong opportunities thrown at me took back from me. In front of the world in front of the girl. I’ll make a difference if my life should change. Beyond all the hate. beyond all the rage. I’ll make a difference if my life stays the same.

I’ll take back all my lies, I’ll take back all our fights, I’ll take back all of this, there is nothing we can't fix. l'll take back what is wrong. i'll take it back before you're gone. i'll take it back. No feedback. I want to be with you.
Track Name: Where I Am
I’m looking down from the sky, but i can’t see where you are. Meet me in the middle. I can feel you, I know you’re not far. The sun is shining at night, but the clouds are still dark. Meet me in the middle, I know you’re not far.

From time to time i travel through space this universe is my only escape. Would you care to join and see. Instead of letting go from the summers' snow. I built a fort out of ice and let the days go by. it will never melt on me.

The strength we gave, the fears we shared, the times we had.. Why didn’t we care?
Track Name: Tick
All it would take would be a gun or a knife or an emit from the heart if the timing is right. I haven’t felt this way in so long. It’s the feeling when everything is gone, but this time i swear, I’ll be here, with you.

You and i are on different pages, but we ignored the signs were losing lives. You and i are on different pages, but we are in the same story.
This time i won’t leave you. I swear if you won’t leave me. I’ll be here within your reach, with you.
