Track Name: No Future
there is no future left for me
fallen hook line and sinker, your hope
trending for a validation, your low
there is no future
nowhere left to go
Track Name: Firesign
i'll find a love with this one i know
if i told you i wanted the one you were
i'll find a love with some dumb crush in the snow
it's so like a fire sign
always stumble in this ocean of black and white
lose sight and trust, so reckless in love
in the snow, he'll be there waiting
in this endless build into nothing
there's no fear when you're by my side
so i stumble in an ocean of fire and ice
no light, i'm broke, just leave me alone
in the snow, he'll be there waiting
is this endless?

don't stay here, i'm not the one you're after
not worth your time or effort
firesign firesign i'm just a little bit broken
Track Name: Forward
figure in the mirror is smiling back as i am looking forward
it aint the same reflection that i knew from before
why settle for something less
when you could fight for so much more
you know it's gonna change things, yeah
you know it's time to shake it up

all the time chasing for your thoughts
i could never be the one you're thinking of
all the times i tried to elicit a response
all the time lying to myself
oh what am i waiting for?
why settle for something less than who you are
you know it's time to change things, yeah
you know it's time to shake it up

figure in the mirror is smiling back as i am looking forward
it ain't the same reflection that i knew from before
why settle for something less
when you could fight for so much more
who were you away from i?
who were you away from i?
i can't be the one to settle your score
you can't be the one worth waiting around for
why settle for something less
when you could fight for so much more
you know it's good to change things, yeah
you know it's time to shake it up

i couldn't be your lie
i dodged a bullet of you
i moved on
Track Name: XYXY
so straighten out your thoughts
don't joke around with me in that way
acting way too strange
i'm not delusional
you are not the thing i've been dreaming of
x and y x and y
it's not alright not alright

if you think of me that way
we'll never be the same
hey i don't want you near me anymore
have way too much to lose
it'll leak out to my folks
losing my way of life my friends my home
you're acting way too strange
they've laws against this stuff
know they'll put us to death for this i'm sure
have too much here to lose
please don't look at me that way
you haven't been the thing i'm dreaming of
x and y x and y
it's not alright not alright
i can't i can't i can't

straight the kid delusionite
long been taught this wrong from right
in an ocean wide to turn the tide
i can't i can't i can't
x and y x and y
it's not alright not alright
x and y x and y
i can't i can't i can't
Track Name: Hostages
but i was too young to know
i may not have any second chances
with all the nice theater kids that you know
it's different
and i leave tomorrow anyway
but all i need is a moment alone
to tell you all that i have held in
i think i've fallen for you
but don't say a word and nobody gets hurt
don't say a word and nobody gets hurt
don't say a word

but i was too young to know
i may not have any second chances
bite my tongue
you aint worth derailing my life for
even if i felt you were
but all i need is a moment alone
the stomach to sum up the courage
and admit that i've fallen for you
don't say a word and nobody gets hurt

all that i want for you
if only you'd let me in
i want to tell you everything
but i don't say a word
Track Name: Damage
something that i
can't wrap my head around
i could not be yours
something that i
can't wrap my head around
couldn't steer you towards me, no
ramble on your post-spring awakening
just what are you looking for
tell me of your old course professors now
bet they know you more than most

obsession, where should i begin
we're cowards running from within
rejected oh but don't you act
as if you were the only one
grandstand, cling onto your youth
and ramble on the things you never knew
yeah, had it rough but don't you act
as if you were the only one
i don't think much of the kid anymore

something that i
can't wrap my head around
i could not be yours
something that i
can't wrap my head around
couldn't steer you towards me, no
i let this whole thing down
should've been led along a little longer
saw this whole thing out
Track Name: Creature
this was a very poor decision
how can i keep my fear around you
or can i be anything i want to be?
you'll find i'm not too good at speaking
it's rare i take this step and wanna fall in
for you, why does it all come so easily
falling someone so spritely
a dancing around all the terror you throw my way
oh you keep up the warning
i keep on coming undone

creature keep it coming
everyday i'm craving for your love
i can't get enough
i keep on coming undone

we don't have to do anything
we can stay in bed all day
we don't have to go anywhere
we can be whatever we'll be
we can watch the sun drifting off
we can stay in bed all day
waking to a kiss on your hand
soaked in wine and fade back asleep
i'm quite taken up with your form
captivated by your stare
terrified by what you might be
ecstatic with the one in front of me
we don't have to go anywhere
we can lay in bed all day
we don't have to do a single thing
we can be whoever we'll be
we can watch the day drifting off
we don't have to do anything
waking to a kiss on your hand
soaked in wine and fade back asleep
we don't have to do anything
we can stay in bed all day
i don't wanna run anymore
i don't wanna run
we don't have to do anything
we can stay in bed all day
i don't want this moment to end
we can stay in bed
Track Name: Vigilant
he can't stick around
gotta let go of the past
things were falling down
he can't relate, he can't relate
heads up, don't mess with it
gotta watch yourself, keep vigilant
you're better off now
he can't relate anymore
Track Name: Distance
caught up in a wave and it can't be stopped, i didn't let go
constantly you're distant and cold
say i'll find someone who deserves me, i know
schoolboy crush, i'm the hurt back home
after all will you always be in my heart
let's let this be
i think distance is what we need

caught up in a wave and it can't be stopped, i couldn't let go
i was desperate for a spark
you were burning all your suitors down
after all will you always be in my heart
let's let this be
i think distance is what we need

caught up in a wave and it can't be stopped
with my flight, and you'd fall in love
with your own embrace if you could
we both fancied the same form of yours
i'd gift you a mirror and turn
leave you two lovebirds alone
in life, oh i don't have the answers
am i falling off or falling backward?
Track Name: Nothing
chatfield
i need to let it go
cut the ties off and move on
feel so foolish now
you were the only one i had around
all that hope and pain and doubt
for a kid i care nothing about
i let it go
now i hold onto nothing
Track Name: Alone Is Okay (B-Side)
alone is okay i've felt i earned it this way
back in the fall i left you crumbling off
you were a saint and i came pummeling down
took all your weakness and i laid it right out

alone is my calling i have been here before
back in the spring you lead me out to this world
sealed a stigma and got lost in the crowd
closet of littleton so hard to burst out
Track Name: Kingston (B-Side)
i was bitter, i was distant
i was vacant
and all the time i thought of you
and all i wanted, all i lost
i keep moving forward
i can't see who i'm running from

you were taken, it was fatal
put your thought on a tether
and i can't seem to let it go
and all i wanted, all i lost
i keep moving forward
i can't see who i'm running from

all of this world it will stay turning
we'll be fine
in the certain future
the back and forth of life
hate to see you unhappy
hate you seeing someone else
it takes all our systems down
all our systems down
all our systems down
