Track Name: Poison
I've had to walk on my toes because you hated the sound
of each step I took while you were stuck in the ground.
The tread in my shoes leaves you notes in the sand 
you can cover them up, but you'll know where I stand.

I'll say I'm sad to see you go - but I'm pleased to watch you walk away. You were a poison to me.

You called my faults
you were so sure of me
Now I see
you were a poison to me

You think you're better than the rest, entitled to the best
There's nothing to your word, you get off when i feel less.
I'm done letting you make me feel wrong for who I am
(it's hard to swallow the pills that you choke on) 

I'll say I'm sad to see you go - but I'm pleased to watch you walk away. You were a poison to me.

You called my faults
you were so sure of me
Now I see
you were a poison to me. 

You've always struggled with truth, I've always struggled with you. I've always struggled with you. 
You were a poison to me.
Track Name: Worse Than I Imagined
It's getting worse than I imagined, all the doors are closing tight.
Every day's another step in the direction of my life
I always swore I'd never live in, I'd rather die than walk the trail
that so many blazed before me and took the dive right off the rail.



I fixed the leak with what I had, you ripped it open just to laugh
We're sinking now, I hope you've had your fun
You may be further than me now, but I hope you're not too proud
You're time is almost up, it's my turn now



It's hard to stay afloat when you've been swept under the tide
And the scene is always changing like the scenic routes we drive
Keep in mind I'll never give in, I'd rather die than walk the trail
Honesty will persevere, illusions always fail



I fixed the leak with what I had, you ripped it open just to laugh
We're sinking now, I hope you've had your fun
You may be further than me now, but I hope you're not too proud
You're time is almost up, it's my turn now



You may be further than me now. You're taking steps, but losing ground.

I fixed the leak with what I had, you ripped it open just to laugh
We're sinking now, I hope you've had your fun
You may be further than me now, but I hope you're not too proud
You're time is almost up, it's my turn now
Track Name: ...Until I'm Burning Alive
Cold hands tear at my dreams that I fight to keep alive
But I'm insulated well, I'm prepared to do this right
You can see it in my eyes, you can hear it in my voice
I'm stubborn but I'm open, and I'll do it with poise 

This is a risk you wouldn't take

But I'm not you and I'm not fake
You can try and play it safe
I'll roll the dice and go my way

I'd rather die trying than play it safe to survive

I won't surrender until I'm burning alive.

Every step back that I take is followed by a leap of faith
All the progress that I've made is amplified by your mistake
Given the chance I'll take my shot, with no regrets or second thoughts
Can you say the same or not?

I'd rather die trying than play it safe to survive. I won't surrender until I'm burning alive.
I'd rather die trying than play it safe to survive. I won't surrender until I'm burning alive. I keep my veins filled with ice, I'll never burn alive
Track Name: We'll Speak In Chords and Melodies
We step on each other just to get ahead
And spit down on the rest who haven't got here yet
When you see the words, you hardly even knew
I'll sing for you, you'll finally know the truth

If these words, that I mumbled
came from another tongue would
you still know what I'm trying to say?
Say anything at all

If these thoughts, that I sing
turned to chords and melodies
would you feel another way?
You'd finally feel it all

Words in books can try, but the language won't be clear
We can translate all we want, but we'll never really hear

When you see the words, you hardly even knew
I'll sing for you, you'll finally know the truth

If these words, that I mumbled
came from another tongue would
you still know what I'm trying to say?
Say anything at all

If these thoughts, that I sing
turned to chords and melodies
would you feel another way?
You'd finally feel it all

Humility is a handout
given by the hands of narcissists
Insults, and ignorance
are only just a part of this

When you see the words, you hardly even knew
I'll sing for you, you'll finally know the truth

If these words, that I mumbled
came from another tongue would
you still know what I'm trying to say?
Say anything at all

If these thoughts, that I sing
turned to chords and melodies
would you feel another way?
You'd finally feel it all
