Track Name: Cut
See how the roots get cut
Don’t you wish they’d last forever?
Let them eat up all the sun
You were nothing once
A flash of chance
In a passing glance
But you weren’t giving up

Now the whole world gets to notice
When you’re putting up your hair
How the light falls on your features
Stopping sentences to stare

So far away from done
You can see it in a tantrum
Always getting what you want
You were nothing once
Grains of sand
Right through your hands
But you weren’t giving up

No one’s there
Track Name: Any Better
I stayed by your side
I let your money rest
in my pocket overnight
You gave me your best
I watched your body language
sing, "make me clean inside"

Not that I'm any better
I can't be anywhere I want on time
It's just, news is much sweeter
With your ears on the other end of the line

You'll move out, that's fine
I'm in over my head
After all, it is your life
You gave me your best
I don't want excuses
They're different every time

I stayed by your side
Track Name: Spider Gets Killed In A Bar
It was a light night
It didn’t feel right
We kept our talk low
Pushed in our elbows

It was a large crowd
It kept the bar loud
Victim of discourse
By the dart board

Ready or not
You’re not calling that shot
So why don’t you just wait?
Ready or not
You’re not calling that shot
So why don’t you just pray?

Nothing but screams now
I shot that man down
He had his eyes closed
Maybe he’ll never know

There were two suspects
Me and my good friend
He didn’t make it
I’m gonna miss him

I am powerful
I am powerless
Making me vulnerable
Acting like an idiot
Track Name: Recollection
Both my eyes are open
But you’re not so discrete
You’re stealing from me
Backhanded and backwards
Always waiting on the last word

How could this be it?
Embrace the break
And lean on in
But you’re not there yet,
You’ve got your reasons

These restless nights are over
But I can’t discern because they just bleed
Where they want until they’re all mixed up
And no different to me

How could this be it?
Embrace the break
And lean on in
But you’re not there yet
You’ve got your reasons
I want to see them

You don’t know how hard it is to be here for you
I’m trapped in my best years

I’m where I want
I’m all messed up
Makes no difference to me

How could this be it?
Embrace the break
And lean on in
But you’re not there yet
You’ve got your reasons
I don’t believe them
Track Name: Habit
You are not a saint
Not like the ones that they portray
They’re rolling in their graves
With needless reminders
Of what you’d call better days
People bite their tongues and say

“You’ve been monumental
So here’s your reward”
The only time you’re listening
Is when they’re screaming for more

We look the other way
You seem to know what’s best
For everybody else
I guess you need the advantage
No one has the heart to explain
You’re always in the way

And you looked the other way
I wanted to say something
But you looked the other way
I wanted to say
