Track Name: Even Out
Sometimes I find we just get caught up in the line
waiting for the exit
So take your time, just take whatever you find
we're only going forward from here

But I just can't, no I just can't
I just can't be the man you want from me

Let's get this right, let's get it all out tonight
just throw it on the table this time
Oh to gently bend when its so easy to break
They only make it harder from here

But I just can't, no I just can't
I just can't be the man you want from me

Every line feels the same
Its always just waiting for something else to prove
Wasting time in the day
Is it better? We never had much of it to lose

What do I have to give that's better than this?
Track Name: Curtains
I passed your exit too many times, wasn't in it for the ride.
I needed something more to stay...
Don't mistake it for sympathy, grasping more than I can see.
De-clawed and reeling from the blows..

Not enough to figure out I'm better off alone
But I can't get you out of my head
Draw the curtains for today, I'll sleep it off again
What's left of my best attempt to keep the rest of all this mess

I can't steel my own resolve and let the last to years dissolve
into the past just like a dream
Just don't pull the sheets away and leave me naked on display
Just thinking of what might have been...

Not enough to figure out I'm better off alone
But I can't get you out of my head
Draw the curtains for today, I'll sleep it off again
What's left of my best attempt to keep the rest of all this mess

I don't want to leave but I can't stay
I don't want to turn and walk away
I just can't stand to follow you around
I'd rather sit back than fall back down
Track Name: End Of The World
Shaking all the picture off the wall
Do what you want
Wash away the cities in it all
If that's what you want

When it comes bearing down

Guess I'll go out swinging
If that's what you're thinking
Oh, guess I'll go out swinging
Yeah If that's what you're thinking

Don't look now the animals have gone
Take what you want


When it comes bearing down
Oh when it falls like a wave come to carry us away
Into the flow, oh come on just let it go

Yeah I've gotta get right back to the place I was before
I'm gonna climb right out from the ocean to the shore

When It comes let it go
Guess I'll go out swinging
If that's what you're thinking
Guess I'll go out swinging
If that's what you're thinking
Track Name: Gravity
It feels like I've been here before
I know these walls but I can't find the door
And everything moves in circles again
I've seen the beginning but can't find the end

I don't know where it's gonna go from here on out
Yeah I've seen it before but I've still got my doubts
Just one more reason to turn around
Yeah I can't back out, no you've got me now

Back down into your gravity
Its just another way out to somebody else's scene
Back down into your gravity
Its just another way out, don't need another way down

Is this too much? Its never enough
You take what you can when you think that its love
And everyone knows you're gone again
You disappear just as soon as it begins

I don't know where its gonna go from here again
Yeah I just might find what I lost back then
Just one more thing before I go
Can I stay here with you until the end of the show?

Back down into your gravity
Its just another way out to somebody else's scene
Back down into your gravity
Its just another way out, don't need another way down
Track Name: Horizon
I let the time wash around me
There's no need to settle in

Every hour just gets so crowded
Every year gets a little too thin

It feels like the world's wrapped around me
I don't know what's left to find

Every hour just gets so crowded
Every year gets a little to thin

Draw me a line on the horizon
Draw me a line in the sand
This crisis of faith is it surprising
I don't want a way out, I just want to give in

I feel like a tourist in my own skin
I fall apart to the pressure inside

Every hour just gets so crowded
Every year gets a little to thin

Draw me a line on the horizon
Draw me a line in the sand
This crisis of faith is it surprising
I don't want a way out I just want to give in
