Track Name: Closure
I watched it all happen right before my eyes
Everyone I know left me behind
so high and dry

Everything I once held dear to me is slowly slipping away
I feel this way more and more every day and its taking a tole on me
I wish I could set all my problems aside and just go on with my life
but I know that wouldn't be right
because nothing would be justified

I watched everything happen right before my eyes
Everyone I know left me behind
so high and dry
It's crazy how fast time flies
and how things have changed
I guess that's part of growing up
accepting that everyone leaves

I guess it's true what the say
you take everything for granted until you lose everything
And now out of everything that I once held dear to me nothing remains but the the memories

I watched everything happen right before my eyes
Everyone I know left me behind
so high and dry
And for the first time in a long time
I feel that it's within my reach
What once seemed so blurry is now plain to see
I feel the closure in me
Track Name: Crossroads
I take a step in the right direction and then I take (two steps back)
Don't live in the past just because it's familiar

Don't let your faults
define who you are
Living in fear won't
get you far

I took a shot in the dark
to take a chance on you
Despite what my friends said
come to find what they said was true
Everything you love
is everything I hate
My efforts have failed
but you couldn't relate

I don't know how you got in so deep
but leave it to me to lift you back to your feet

At first you were oh so sweet
turns out you're a product of greed
I'm not losing sleep over you
I've become too tired of your games

I don't know how you got in so deep

You were so far from
everything I tried to find
Everything you stood for
was anything but divine
And I've got better things to do
than sit down
waiting on something
that will never come around

(I'll see you at the Crossroads)

I took a shot in the dark
to take a chance on you
Against what my friends said
come to find what they said was true
Everything you love
is everything that I hate
My efforts have failed
but you couldn't relate

But I'm not done here
I've got something left to say
All your words of discouragement
never meant shit to me
And you're to thank 'cause you pushed me to where I am today
I've learned from my mistakes
and by mistakes, I mean you
Track Name: Apathy
Go ahead and wish away all the things you hate
You push away all the good things that come your way
I thought you were better than this
turns out you've become just another trend

(So tell me)
Where have you been and since when do you treat your friends like this
Keep this up and you'll have none left you make me sick
We haven't heard from you in weeks and you don't even care
Keep this up and I swear you won't be missed

I've got a thing or two to tell you
been on my mind for far too long
I've gotta get this off my chest
it wears me down to the bone (x2)

(So tell me)
Where have you been and since when do you treat your friends like this
Keep this up and you'll have none left you make me sick
We haven't heard from you in weeks and you don't even care
Keep this up and I swear you won't be missed

You put the blame on everyone else
everyone but yourself
You're beginning to mean
less and less to me
You're drowning in Apathy
the truth will set you free
You fled the scene just as things
were starting to get interesting
Track Name: Reverie (Feat. Jack of Paper Planets)
I try not to be the person I've been
but I find the more I try, the more I am
I am a broken man
that no one can repair
What is this life for
I'm not sure anymore
we've got a man overboard

This ship has set it's course and I'm heading out to sea
I've set sail with all sights and signs ahead of me
I don't have a destination I'm going nowhere near
I just don't feel welcome here anymore we've got a man overboard

Take me away

I'm finding myself lost
as the waves consume me
I'm losing my grip
as I'm tossed to sea
I'm to the point
where no one will find me
I'm finding myself in Reverie

I see a faint light in the distant I just hope it's really there
I pray that someone will find me this is too hard for me to bare
This lighthouse will lead me to where I need to be
Currents will take me ashore these tides will bring new things
It's all gonna work out just breathe in deep, it's all gonna come around by the time that I find sleep

I'm finding myself
as the current flows with me
I'm catching my grip
as I'm pulled in from sea
I can tell that this is where I need to be
I'm finding myself in Reverie
Track Name: Disconnected
How can I keep my head up when there's nothing to look forward to
How can I keep my cool when
everything I hate surrounds me
I'm sick of this constant stress
that fills my head
I've lost focus on everyone and everything, I'm just a fucked up kid with no direction

The past will never leave me
it's engraved in my head
I just can't seem to see
the road ahead
I'm so disconnected from everyone and everything, I just can't believe I let myself get this way
I've become the very thing I hate

How can I keep my head up when there's nothing to look forward to
How can I keep my cool when
everything I hate surrounds me
I'm sick of this constant stress
that fills my head
I've lost focus on everyone and everything, I'm just a fucked up kid with no direction

I used to look for the good in everyone
now I can't even find the good in myself
Even when I try to be the helping hand
I find myself falling through the cracks again
I keep my heart in my lungs and I'll keep screaming until the day that I can't breathe
I'm just a fucked up kid with no direction
but I'm still searching for my way
