Track Name: Let Me Out
I feel that the walls are down
Still I don't belong around here
And I feel that there's something wrong
Fight through these thoughts that want to drown here

I know other souls have gone
Bite through my lips and turn from the mirror
But I cling to anything that's mine
To grow old's a crime
Or so I hear

Let me out

Palms down and my heart rate up
I'm told I smile too much and not enough
Fault lines have split across my face
I fight in vain to slow their cracking pace

I know by tomorrow I'll forget why I tried to change
But tonight the words just twist and race
I'm paralyzed and a cliché

Let me out

Your thousand yard stare
Stops me dead, and holds me there
I stumble home
You're always there
To talk me down
To give me air

Hide the frame
Let a picture age instead of me, please
"Slow down,"
I tell my breathing
Please

Let me out
Track Name: Winter Party
After the winter party
After they had gone
With glasses broken
And nothing spoken
We left it there

We sat up on the rooftop and watched them fight
And the ashes and the insults burned all night

We didn't care

Their discontent
Their long descent
They made it our affair

And after next year's party
We'll follow them both home
To sort their lives out
And watch their next bout
It won't go anywhere

We'll sit out on their back porch
Ask for a light
Shiver by each other
Try to make it right

It won't be fair

Their discontent
Their long descent
They made it our affair
Their discontent...

We wait and watch, both hoping
That things will change
But you and I both know that
They'll never change

Each year they say and promise
That things will change
But you and I both know that
They'll never change

We wait and watch, both hoping
That things will change
But you and I both know that
They'll never change

But you and I both know that
Track Name: I Live Alone
I lived alone in our home
I lived alone in our home
No one could see me
And you wouldn't try
I lived alone in our home
With you beside me
I still felt alone

I thought alone in our home
And I fought alone in our home
No one could hear me
And you wouldn't try
I thought alone in our home
With you beside me
I still felt alone

Now you're gone and I don't feel alone

Echoes and chains
Distant days since my point was gone
Falling anchors come down
Indifference and lulls
Scissors dull and my point is won
Done
We're marking what's ours
Distant hours since your point was lost
Didn't matter the cost
There's space now for air anywhere
And my point is this

Empty halls
Faces blank
It's all I had alone with you
The only sound
Was voices raised
My words never made it through
We don't speak
Since those days
But you know that's nothing new
My face was down
My voice would fade
Now I'm alone forgetting you

I lived alone in our home
I lived alone in our home
No one could find me
And you wouldn't try
I lived alone in our home

Living alone, I'm no more alone than I was alone with you

Now I live alone in my home
