Track Name: Recovery
You were looking for a different story
One that didn’t end up like this, but now it’s late
And the party is over

Don’t push your love away
Don’t hang the banner on me only to say...

Every good thing ends
But it comes around again
And you want the feeling back, I know
But every good thing ends

You came along and it changed my story
One that would’ve ended up with a broken line
The words couldn’t fine their home

Don’t push my hands away
Don’t take the banner and leave only to say…

Everything can’t end the way you want it to
Track Name: That's Close Enough
I got in my car and turned on the stereo
600 miles all the way back home
I was stuck in Shelby, North Carolina
When you’re 19 it all makes sense to go

So far from home

Callie I made this amazing collection
Of songs that say the words that I can’t say
And we laid there high on listening
Callie now tell me just what do you think?
She said “You like pretty songs”
No, I like sing-alongs but that’s close enough for me

I got in this way over my head
Where’s the exit?
I didn’t see for what I was feeling
Where’s the exit?

Hours on the road, 10 hours all alone

Too many times I’ve felt this feeling
Too many times it’s left me reeling
We had nothing left to say
Maybe it should stay that way

I got in my car and turned on the stereo
600 miles I hope I make it home
I was leaving Shelby North, Carolina
When you’re 19 it all makes sense to go

So far from home
Track Name: Floating or Falling?
Vague and slow, a monument to a fatal blow
That's yet to show itself an unholy ghost
Dark and cold
Just give me something, a look I know
Trust is gold and fear will pass on

I'll wait for walls to fall around you
Until there's nowhere else for you to run to
Because I need to know, and I'll wait you out

So what's the difference between fearing and loving?
Because I never know which way I'm going
So help me understand
Because the difference between floating and falling
Its so hard to know which way I'm going
So help me understand

And we held our own
Make your own life the one you want
The way we chose living and dying, the way its meant to go
So whats left to see? And whats left for me? I'll say it
Everywhere I go I'm watching the world I've never seen before
Track Name: Somewhere in Illinois
Fade to black from the brightest light
Never a thought of what we learned about that night
Feverish, a fire in the sky
Never a question of what happens when it dies

Go on, these days are gold
We were so young and out of control

Better now, but is it really so?
Spending our time in places we already know
A memory, a thought passed on
Remember the faces that are now forever gone

Go on, these days are gold
We were so young and out of control
Go on, you need it so
We were so young and out of control
Track Name: The Way Your Heart Was Made
Why can’t you let pain go, when it’s not your own?
You’ve come to expect every heartbreak

When was the last time you just shut it all out?
Feel the quiet and breathe, it gets so loud

Every scrape in this world shouldn’t make you bleed
And all the weight that you hold isn’t love you need

But your heart can’t escape from the way it was made
And you lift every cross as it falls in your way
But what I need to know is how long this can go
Because I feel my hands trembling and loosening

Not a soul turned away, and the look on your face
You can’t be the savior forever
When was the last time you just let yourself need?
Let the world come to you, it gets too loud

All they throw you are promises
But they never mean it and you keep believing
When was the last time you were given a thing?
Or felt all you’re worth?
It gets too loud
Track Name: Taking From Me
Did you really think my life would end with you?
That you'd bury me with all that I've gone through

Years of blood and sweat all thrown away
Staring in the face of your complacency

You call it victory, but I call it tyranny
You call it industry, but I call it taking from me

Is my whole life a case of wasted youth?
A sinking ship that we all held onto

I'll watch your buildings crumble while you drown
You're the ones that suffocate the sound

We'll starve the artist's to keep them honest
But now the sky is falling, the end is on us
Track Name: Ten to One
I put on my legs and headed where its only cold
I couldn’t ask you to go there, but I don’t want to be alone

This is where my heart beats out of time, I’m barely alive
And barely a soul in sight to occupy my mind

10 to one, I make it out now
10 to one, I see the skyline
10 to one, I keep my back straight
But it’s never enough

Face down, stuck in a cold sweat
Hands up, like I was giving in
Eyes closed, I don’t want to see a thing
Shut it down everything is broken now

Why don’t you just have a seat right there until this is gone?
I couldn’t ask you to do this but I don’t want to be alone

This is where my nerves run out of time, I’m barely alive
And barely a soul in sight to make me feel alright
