At the Edge of Disaster
I sit on a table with my sunglasses on
I’m waiting to fight you, but hope that you win
you sing about heartache that you’ve never known…

you fake feelings, til you feel them
you fake feelings, til you feel them

Two beats and you’re taking a seat, it’s like slow motion crime
it takes just a sentence or two after all of this time
I should have gone with my gut, I should have kept saying no

I don’t see it yet, ‘cause you’re fearless
I don’t see it yet, ‘cause you’re fearless

You take all the fun out of hate when you’re impossible
Leave me at the edge of disaster, I don’t see the fall
Can’t quiet the part of you that’s telling me don’t go

This scene is on repeat, when I can’t sleep
This scene is on repeat, when I can’t sleep
you fake feelings, til you feel them
I don’t see it yet, ‘cause you’re fearless

You sing about heartache that you’ve never known…

Grey Matter
And you thought I was leavin’
so you taught me to stay
Grey matter is where you play

Every time it was broken
I got lost in a loop
You tried to get lost there too

But I am so tired lately
Why don’t we lay down here baby
Then I should go

If it can’t be romantic
complicate it with truth
too late to create the mood

Every win is a token
to be paid when it’s due
you hope that I’ll follow through

But I am so tired lately
Why don’t we lay down here baby
Then I should go

And you thought I was leavin’
So you taught me to stay.


Almost Crazy
You left me so burdened and gravity held
I fell in the trenches of where it all spilled
I’ve given you insight and tried to be free
So open, yet tortured
and almost crazy
I have to feel the need

One more small misstep and we’d both be free
Life doesn’t have to be so bittersweet
It took me so long that you made it out
So open, yet tortured
and almost crazy
I have to feel the need

Blame it on whiskey, say that you’re through
go through the motions as long as you need to
Move on without me, I’m still where we fell
So open, yet tortured
and almost crazy
I have to feel the need

I Can’t Let Go
I’ve run out of ways to say this to you
Every song, every word, every note
Careful not to submit to the monster
Never seen from beneath a sheep’s clothes

I can’t let go
Every time it’s the same
I reach out

Expecting something but this is a joke now
I will be in your reach until you let go
A siren, I must have missed every warning
Your goodbye was a sign, but how I would know

I can’t let go
Every time it’s the same
Something small always pulls me under
Then my mind misbehaves
I reach out

A Little Is Too Much
You gave me a moment and I made a fuss
I told you that even a little is too much
You told me a story about your whole life
So I would believe in this moment you’re mine

I laid it all out
In fear of rejection you smother the spark
If we play this out
Your only protection is to unbreak my heart

Play this out…

If you aren’t the victim, no progress is made
If I don’t surrender, it’s anyone’s game
I make it so easy, you’ll never give up
relentlessly beating your way into love

I laid it all out
in fear of rejection you smother the spark
If we play this out
your only protection is to unbreak my heart

Play this out…

You gave me a moment and I made a fuss
I told you that even a little is too much

I laid it all out
in fear of rejection you smother the spark
If we play this out
your only protection is to unbreak my heart

Play this out…

Everywhere
In my gloom, you walk
Breathe before it’s gone
It never really mattered who was there
I was falling everywhere

In my sleep we fought
You woke up to a bomb
You don’t even ask me
I just give you everything from everywhere

You were so decided
It became a weight in your day
I can see outside this moment
there’s a bitter taste that will last until you say
almost anything at all

Give me doom, give me hope
Let me be what I want
I don’t need reminding
of the girl who waited there and everywhere

Thoughtless or Dumb
I barely had the time to fight
before you’d said you changed your mind
You think because you’ve got a buzz
You should have the right
not tonight

A surface scratched that never bleeds
without those words without a seed
Inside your numb, or are you dumb
hanging on to see who you’ll be

I know you’re thoughtless
are you out of your mind
I swear to see the next time
that there won’t be a next time

And in the end it’s never right
to peddle friendship for that price
If they saw you now, you’d wear their crown
You would be their star, so bizarre
You would be their star

In the Way
Just a path that is leading to the way we die
I don’t know if the right one would have kept me high

Heard your truth, I deserved it too
but you don’t belong
in the way
in the way

All we want is the picture and we’re hypnotized
So much space, no indifference
every scene is liked

Heard your truth, I deserved it too
but you don’t belong
I’m a well you can never fill
so you will remain
in the way
in the way


Captive
No more rehashing the last good memory
You see me tremble, you should be careful
I’ll never leave your mind
You can’t rewind
I’ll never leave your mind

You just don’t listen
I’ve got no reason to feel so threatened
When you’re defenseless
I’ll never leave your mind
You can’t rewind
I’ll never leave your mind

One time held captive won’t make you worth it
It’s not just faking, you beg then burn me
I’ll never leave your mind
I’ll never leave
I’ll never leave your
I’ll never leave
