Track Name: Nothing
Hold my hand so I can feel your skin
Let's let go of our sin
Cause I'll feel dead until the day I die
Just talk to me so I can feel alive again
It'll be a while before you see
I'm still not who I want to be
Don't leave me here alone inside my head
I can't handle the weight of my family's tree falling apart
It's hard to be strong when I was the weakest one from the start

She says that she's found the cure
But she's screaming so loud that I can't hear her
And I can't restart
Emptiness resides inside my head and I have always lacked the heart

Where are you?
Cause I know that you know where I am
Searching for someone to pull me through
But no one is there for you in the end
And now I feel nothing
Nothing

She says that she's found the cure
But she's screaming so loud that I can't hear her
And I can't restart
Emptiness resides inside my head and I have always lacked the heart
So if this is the way it has to be
Then I guess I'll act like that's fine with me
And keep to myself
Because there's nobody else

Submerge myself in water and drown out what's true
You're dead to me, cause I'm dead to you

She says that she's found the cure
But she's screaming so loud that I can't hear her
And I can't restart
Emptiness resides inside my head and I have always lacked the heart
So if this is the way it has to be
Then I guess I'll act like that's fine with me
And keep to myself
Because there's no one else
Track Name: Love/Family/Friends
I tried to make amends
You won't listen to what I say
I always hit dead ends
With signs pointing the other way
This will burn you
This will burn

Broken hands holding onto hope
I swallow truth with a closing throat
And I can see you see me slowly letting go
Well how far do you think I've grown from you?

Well paint the color that you want me to be
And cover my entire body
And I'll break and bend trying to make amends
Before this all comes to an end

Now my thoughts are growing heavy
I try to change but you won't let me
It sets fire in my head
What's loved is lost and what's Dead is Dead

Well paint the color that you want me to be
And cover my entire body
And I'll break and bend trying to make amends
Before this all comes to an end
With dead love, dead family, dead friends.
Track Name: Hold My Breath
Looking up from underneath
I'm spitting blood and losing teeth
Try to conceal the seams
But the cracks that I fall in between keep me

I'm on a losing streak
Time's always got the best of me
And I know who you are isn't who I'll be
I've lost all trust
My heart will soon combust
Like I always do
I'll hold my breath for you

Picking up what you left behind
Leaving me with an uncomforting state of mind
Trying to force the pieces but they won't fit
And I know the truth
But I won't say anything I'll just choke on it

I'm on a losing streak
Time's always got the best of me
And I know who you are isn't who I'll be
I've lost all trust
My heart will soon combust
Like I always do
I'll hold my breath for you

I try to find the time to ease your troubled mind
But if I'm being honest
I can't even ease mine
Back and forth between
Bursting open at the seams
Take my life by all means
Take my life by all means
Track Name: Feel At Home
Losing touch I reach out your way
I'll get through to you some day
Work up the nerve
Ask you to stay
But I keep choking on the words that I am too nervous to say

Empty words to try and help me cope
You'd say anything to give me hope
But you can't and you won't
Heavy thoughts I can't think things through
I'm not sure what I should say to you
If you're dead then I'm dead too

Do you feel alone?
Do these pictures on the wall make you feel at home?
Well this distance can't be split with a telephone
These bloodshot eyes make it hard to see
But through the midst of it all you're so beautiful to me
And I know that you need me too
I know that you just want to talk and I've been ignoring you
I never could get quite through to you

I'll get through to you some day (some day)
I'll get through to you some day (some day)
I'll get through to you some day (some day)
I'll get through
Track Name: Everything
Tell me what I deserve to hear
This fucking cancer made it a rough year
Before October, I should tell her I love her
I'm not sure how much longer she'll be here
I feel it all go against the grain
Depression flows through my veins
Behind the smiles
Behind the laughter there is pain

I don't look I stare
I don't talk I think
And my ears don't hear
And my eyes don't blink
And I'm well aware
I should grow not shrink
Can't seem to care
I don't swim I sink

This is crippling
Holding on has my hands blistering
They say just keep your faith and God will bring relief
But he's not listening, he's not listening

I don't look I stare
I don't talk I think
And my ears don't hear
And my eyes don't blink
And I'm well aware
I should grow not shrink
I can't seem to care
I don't swim I sink

I know you'll have so much to say
So much for you to sing
And I can't wait to die so you can tell me everything
Everything

Separate my head
Divide my skin
I'll give you anything to help you feel alive again
When hope caves in
And words stretch thin
I want to save your life
But I don't know where to begin
But I will see you soon my friend.
