Track Name: On My Side
you sped on through
when laying in the mud was a danger sign
I'm stone cold and laced with agony yet all you see are vines
I'm petrified

it was face down
still you should have seen it
the person that you want, I should have been it
but now I just don't know and you don't see the conflict

it's so hard to tell if you're on my side
or are you just along for the ride

your love's a fountain
I was standing in it
trying to figure out how to get dry when my skin
it could use the moisture

oh I'm a fool
nobody really cares
I drove away all those who did now no ones there
and I'm scared. so I run my tremblin' fingers through my sweaty hair

it's so hard to tell if you're on my side
or are you just along for the ride

I will starve my heart
of your affections
'til I realize it's what I need
cause if love is not
the greatest addiction
tell me what is so I never plant that seed
Track Name: Darkest Dawn
goddamn the ones who shrug us off and damn our brothers
I'll do my damnedest to see you through
I'm on my second year of living with the fear
I sense the darkest dawn coming for me and you

how can I come to be happy
if happiness never comes
I won't adorn this crown of frozen fingers
I'll never claim to be the captain of the ship
but when I see injustice
I'm gonna lead my crew against it

I'm trying hard not to get so down
but when I see you, I don't wanna be around

I fight the habits that have worked their way into my conscience
and shake loose the pebbles from the cliff
you are the passers by who stare into the ocean
you know not the danger you have missed
it's right behind you so

how can I come to be happy
if happiness never comes
I won't adorn this crown of frozen fingers
I'll never claim to be the captain of the ship
but when I see injustice
I'm gonna lead my crew against it

I'm trying hard not to get so down
but when I see you, I don't wanna be around

damn, damn, damn, I'm at it again
I'm choked by some words that I should have let in
but now I'm taking it to heart that's soiled on my sleeve
and if you're asking me to stay, I'm just dying to leave

I'm trying hard not to get so down
but goddamn the ones who shrug us off and damn our brothers
I'll do my best to let her down easy
