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

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

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

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
