Track Name: "Before They Found You"
I feel like I’ve woken up inside a dream
I can’t pin you down or stab the nearest thing
I feel like you’ve broken up in sight of me too many times

You said: “The evil comes too close for what I’d like
I push it back for days, it comes back every night
I feel like you've broken up in sight of me too many times
And too many years I never felt alive”

I could see it all around you
You can see I mourn without your love
On the day before they found you
Did I live enough?

Leave me alone to dream
I can not make it real
To have you, I confess, I’d borrow, beg or steal
Was it catastrophe?
Some terrifying test?
Or was it me and my big mouth that sent you to an early rest?

I could see it all around you
You can see I mourn without your love
On the day before they found you
Did I live enough?

(Something got a hold of you) Either way
(My love wasn’t strong enough) If I could change
(Something got a hold of you) The past I would think you’re headed down the same way
We’re headed down the same way to find
Too many years we never felt alive

I could see it all around you
You can see I mourn without your love
On the day before they found you
Did I live enough?

Before they found you
Did I live enough?
Track Name: "I Don't Know How To Wait"
Listen up man
Do you think you could help me?
There's something I'm dying to know
Would you dare?
Why do I kill every chance I make?
Why do the moments drain all my life?
Nobody would listen
My body won't listen

(Easy now) I don't know how to wait
(Take one step) Fall flat on my face
(The day will come) It does much too late
And no, I don't know
I don't know how to wait

What kind of man would you be if you loved me?
Teeth on the ground?
Blood on your name?
When every person turns their side and looks for blame
Will you stand by me or run away?

(Easy now) I don't know how to wait
(Take one step) Fall flat on my face
(The day will come) But I've lost my faith
And no, I don't know
I don't know how to wait
Yes, I've lost my faith
And no, I don't know
I don't know how to wait

Take my side in their eyes
Like unto you I did
That could be worth something more than you want to give
I have my confusion
Hell, I'm only human
But I know I want to see you bleed

Nobody would listen
Anytime you'd scream
A failed transmission
Nobody would listen to me

Easy now
Believe in love

Someone tell me how I wait
Track Name: "The Edges Of Your Mind"
Throw me out
Drag me in
Push me back and turn around onto another man
This hired gun shoots and leaves
That's the way I'll stay and how I'm always gonna be

To the edges of your mind
From some place of need
The edges of your mind
With no break to blink
I saw it arrive
I'd sure rather leave
The edges of your mind
Than have to stand you near me

It's on its way again
This darkness, some feeling
I can't stop believing you were deaf to the sound of my grief
That's the way you'll stay
And how you've always ever been

To the edges of your mind
From some place of need
The edges of your mind
With no break to blink
I saw it arrive
I'd sure rather leave
The edges of your mind
Than have to stand you near me

Still, nothing means anything at all
To anyone but me
Now believe
That if I pushed you to push me
Well, then I'm pleased

To the edges of your mind
From some place of need
The edges of your mind
The end is up to me
I saw it arrive
I'd sure like to leave
The edges of your mind
So I can be a whisper in the ground
A shameful thing
The way I'll stay and how it's gotta be

boom boom.
Track Name: "Lie"
I could never stop the world from spinning 'round
I should know, because I've tried
Now I'd sooner want to send it in a twirl
So fast my feet fly off into the sky

Standing in a frozen lake
Flying out the doors of a train
Isn't that what normal people do?
I'll do my best to make it up to you

I don't want to be loved by you
All of everybody else's happiness is killing me
But I want to be wrong
Silent so long
Here alone in my big, old, stupid lie

I could never stop the word from getting 'round
I should know, I've done it twice
When I've had a few
I tend to bend the truth
So much you'd beat my teeth in with a pipe

Sinking in a mess you made
Riding out the bumps in a plane
But there's always something
That brings you back again to me
Only...

(Chorus)

The word is getting 'round
From your crooked teeth to mine
My big, old, stupid LIE
