Track Name: There Will Be Blood
Every now and then man comes to a point
where the only way out is blood

There's blood on my hands
There's blood everywhere
Track Name: Everything, Nothing
Where the hell did you go?
I still remember us sitting by the shore

You made this small town feel a little bigger
You made me feel so brave
And then you disappeared

You were almost everything to me
But I was completely nothing to you
Track Name: Don't Let The Truth Get In The Way Of A Good Story
Walking blind, not by faith
Can't wait to prove you wrong

Freedom, yeah right

So gullibly I used to see
Well, nothing at all
Imaginary immortality

You fucking hypocrite,
Choke on your halo
Track Name: Long Distance Runner
I got this broken soul I like to show around
And dance to the rhythm of my weakening will

I made peace with myself and was told to be proud
Because it's the hardest war to win
But who said anything about winning?
I just stopped fighting

And I will run until my feet give up
I will run
I will escape
Track Name: Forever Unclean
I know what you are
I own you and your secrets
He can't wash away the stains that I left in you

So call me when you are over
Because I'll fucking wait
Track Name: Juneau to Regina
With the same mistakes
You pushed harder for the shore
Bottled, broken and empty
But it feels like there's something growing
This is how you did it before

The wall is too thin
The skull is too thick
It's so easy to ignore

This time last year I was in Alaska
This time last year I was home

Is it really that much to ask for?
To be left alone, to be left in peace

Where does the time go?
Track Name: 24th Kendall St.
You toss and you turn
But the time's going nowhere
You've been here before
That weight in your chest
It's there every time she doesn't smile
Every time she turns away

It pulls you through the mattress
All the way to the basement floor
Don't you hate it when you're right?
Don't go to bed without saying goodnight

I was looking for signals and frequencies
Counting everything step between there and home

I'm awake
I'm awake
Counting every step

We're okay
We're okay
We're not fucking okay
