Track Name: Achilles' Heel
I know there's more to life than sitcom re-runs and sleepless nights but lately I've not been fond of much else at all. I want to get out of this but I'm afraid that I'm stuck here in this abyss. I'm growing tired of this routine. Summer came and went and I have nothing but dreams to meet some friends or grow up but it seems that I am nothing.
Track Name: Maybe a Locket is Just a Locket and a Chair is Just a Chair
I will always love you. I will always miss you. I will think about you. I'm sorry I missed you growing up. I'm sorry I missed your first day of school. I'm sorry I wasn't there. I'm sorry.
Track Name: Without You
When a love dies where does it go? Does it have a soul or spirit? Does it feel this? I don't know anymore. Last Word Is Rejoice and go to sleep.
Track Name: Fireworks
I want it all to light up bright like diamonds in the sky for the rest of my life. I want explosions and hopeless devotion. I just want to set off fireworks for you.
Track Name: You've Taken My Chair and The Music Hasn't Stopped
My bones ache. The lonely whisper of wind through leaves. The thorn twisting inside my veins. So fragile and faint. At least I tried to make it right. Held on to what once gave me flight. Now I'm here on my hands and knees for the wolves to eat. Save me. I'm on my hands and knees wide awake with nothing to take. Wash over blue skies. I don't want to die, at least not yet. I want the birds to sing to me. I want to hear them say "you'll smile again one day", and I'm still searching.
