Track Name: No Name
I tried to reach out to you
But I'm just the space that you outgrew
Watching time as it drifts too soon
Keep me away; your distant moon

I've been to hell and I'd go back
Retracing all my misplaced steps
And washed all the blood from my veins

Smiles that flicker before you go
Pictures that burn like the back of your throat
Spent the hours weighed down by rain
Slipped through your palms, I can feel your pain
Bouquet of flowers left on my grave
Will I still shine when the color fades?

I've been to hell and I'd go back
Retracing all my misplaced steps
And washed all the blood from my veins
Track Name: The Ivy
These walls I've built can't stand without
A little pressure to keep me from caving inside out
Diamond eyes, reflecting fears
That burned a hole in you
Too blind to see straight through

Honesty couldn't save me from the weather
I'll sleep until spring, give me time to recover
With both eyes shut, I'll think of you
Remember what was without you

Drenched in stars, glisten beneath the moon
Shallow skulls pour over when it's only you
Souvenirs, reminders of passing days
Of all the time that I'll never get back again

Honesty couldn't save me from the weather
I'll sleep until spring, give me time to recover
With both eyes shut I'll think of you
Remember what was without you

Tracing circles into the wall
Let the ivy grow
Watch the first snow fall on the lawn
Let the ivy grow
Burying nails into my skull
Let the ivy grow
I should've let go instead of holding on

Kept all the blood in my head
Replayed the visions of my death
Track Name: Burned By You
Bad dream, burn my vision
Left me to sing alone
The harmonies don't fit
Maybe it was never meant

I wish there was more for me to say
I wish constellations still meant something
But the river's dry, my lungs are half empty
Keep your stories, I don't care for endings

I know where secrets grow
Behind the eyelids where no one goes
Woke me up inside a fever dream
A coma of misery

Tracing the mirror
Words condense on the glass
Searching for answers
I don't think I'm coming back

I know where secrets grow
Behind the eyelids where no one goes
Woke me up inside a fever dream
A coma of misery
