Track Name: All the Memories (Revisited)
I can't stop killing the songs you like
You look at me with eyes
That could beat the sunrise in a contest
No question
Well, talk to all the others
And bring me back to earth
I'm thankful for your mother for what it's worth

Oh, all the memories we had
Framed in our minds like photographs
Take a second, take a second
And make this last
Here where the future meets the past
I can never fall in love again
I can never fall in love again

I can't stop moving cause I'll feel dead
Give me a second and I'll turn into a year you won't forget

We'll make them read our stories
And we'll make them eat their words
We'll make their lives seem boring for what it's worth

Oh, all the memories we had
Framed in our minds like photographs
Take a second, take a second
And make this last
Here where the future meets the past
I could never fall in love again
I could never fall in love again

I drink your poison and say
I'm still not going away
I'll swallow all your bombs and grenades
And love you like a tsunami wave

Oh, all the memories we had
Framed in our minds like photographs
Take a second, take a second
And make this last

Oh, all the memories
Framed in our minds
Take a second, take a second
And make this last, here for a while
Track Name: You and Me Both (Revisited)
The guardrail is tempting me
Standing like a sentry to the left of me
It's guarding adventure
That’s certain to be life threatening
Life threatening

I need a tragedy to wake me
From perpetual dreaming
The proverbial "pinch me"
I'm so sick of sleeping
I'm so sick of sleeping

And you wonder why my eyes don't leave my phone
It's no wonder that you feel like you're alone
I think I need a new story
One where I take on the world
The one I'm living is boring
It's killing you and me both

The car crash in front of me
Pulls me back from deep and desperate fantasy
Snaps me wide awake to see the horrible scene
What's happening
What's happening

Is this the tragedy I asked for
Is this blood on my hands a consequence of my own war
I'm so sick of sleeping
I'm so sick of needing more

And you watch every time
As I give myself to death and neglect life
And I blindly desert the plot line you deserve
Track Name: Salt in the Snow (Revisited)
Give me wings, give me peace

These are the things that I need

I'm tormented, broken and shamed

Are you listening?

And give me shelter from the storm

I know it's a lot to ask for considering how recent

I've piled the dirt on your name

Are you listening?

I have heard that winter's cold

Will give way to summer's warmth

Oh no, like salt in the snow

I'm melted and left all alone
On the side of the road

Is this where I am for your sake?

Stuck between sleep and awake?
My mind is dreaming of things

Are you listening?

I took You for granted again

And threw you aside and pretended

For one minute that I had control of my life

And direction it seemed to be in

I was wrong again
Are you listening?

I have heard that winter's cold

Will give way to summer's warmth

Oh no, like salt in the snow

I'm melted and left all alone

On the side of the road

And I will wait for you to come again

And I can't pretend like I'm confident

And I can't pretend like it makes much sense

When it doesn't

I have heard that winter's cold

Will give way to summer's warmth

Oh no, like salt in the snow
I'm melted and left all alone

On the side of the road
On the side of the road

On the side of the road

Track Name: We All Look Elsewhere (Revisited)
Lost sense of direction, nobody knows my name
Confidence, correction
I don't know how to play that game
A straight line is quicker
A straight line would make me fast
I've burned my nose enough to know that straight lines never last

We all look elsewhere
We all look elsewhere

Don't waste your time if you've got it
The tides are turning now

It's safer inside doors, nobody has to flee
A broken vessel passed the rocks and out to sea
Waiting, wanting, mad with purpose now
We come to talk to one who knows the answer to how

Swallow your soul
And drink from this life
As you choke on your pride

Don't waste your time if you've got it
The tides are turning now
You are not alone
They gave you their worst and you bought it
The lie has been exposed
You are not alone

Like winter that comes quick in early September
The rain clouds that washed me are what I remember
The stones that I threw piled high like a mountain
Which I had to climb before I reached the fountain
If life is a riddle then riddle me this
The blood tasted sweet as it passed by my lips

Don't, don't waste your time
Don’t, don't waste your time

Don’t waste your time if you've got it
The tides are turning now
You are not alone (Liar, liar)
They gave you their worst and you bought it
The lie has been exposed
You are not alone

We all look elsewhere
