Track Name: Times of Grace
I heard an anthem yesterday, it reminded me of you.
Hold strong, hold true.
A rally call to broken hearts and a promise to stay true.
My life, my rules.

And I found my voice in the chorus.
I found myself in song.
But it somehow still feels so wrong.
In a place where we can belong.
Where we can sing along.

Growing closer as we get older,
The same song on our lips.
Can we flip this damn record over?

I’m knocking at your window.
I know you’ll never let me in.
I never wanted to be a nameless face in your scene.
I never wanted to be in.
Track Name: True to You
A hero’s tongue.
A villain’s fangs
I sit and wait with anxious heart.
Which side will you take when you speak to me next?

How can someone so loved say words so mad?
All you had to say was nothing.
My heart is broken over you.
My heart is broken and I’m over you.

Left to make decisions while bleeding from incisions
In my heart from where I cut you out.

That joke isn’t funny anymore.
I can’t even crack a smile
When I think of what you have become.
Track Name: The Ray’s Effect
Drink deep your damage.
Flavor of the week.
Attraction and destruction careening off a winning streak.
A poetry of fire glides across your wings.
The candle draws you in,
Doesn’t care how much it stings.

Shoots through your bloodstream,
Straight to your heart.
The damage has been done before you even start.
Shoots through your bloodstream,
You’re out of control.
It’s gonna kill you and the story’s getting old.

This birthday bar confession
Here’s a sad and lonely truth.
Equal parts loss and longing
Suspended in 80 proof.
We fell into each other like a fever or a dream
We wake to find another
Sunday morning nightmare scene

The poisons always packed in a pretty little package,
But we all know how that story goes.

Here comes a regular.
Call out my name.
Am I the only one who feels ashamed?
Track Name: Everything Breaks
I swear BK, I’m gonna quit this shit one day.
I’m gonna wrap it up and throw it all away.
These walls are closing in
Like virtue mixed with sin.
I swear, one day this shit is gonna kill me.

The machine may be well oiled
With every spring tightly coiled.
There’s always one cog spun
Wildly out of control.
Despite the shape you’re in,
Face the camera with a grin
And make it up as you go along.

In these darkest times,
I try to keep it in my mind
That everything is headed for an end.
I try not to forget
While reviewing my regrets that eventually,
Everything breaks.
Track Name: RJA
Heyday memories mean nothing today.
Sad, you can only see yourself in rearview mirrors.
Shackled to a dream that died inside your mind.
Left to find your way while walking backwards.

Reach for a past you’ll never catch.
You break a little each day.
Stuck in a mask, you’ll never last.
You’re fake, I see it in your eyes.

Run back through your life one replay at a time.
All the lines you crossed are burned into your background.
You never made it back
A slow motion heart attack
That story only ends one of two ways.

I can see it in your eyes.
You can’t hide behind your lies.
Track Name: 1212
You show your face in the perfect light.
Ask to trade my day for night.
I am left wondering if my foot is on a landmine spring.
Set fire to all that you hold dear so you don’t have to face your fear.

I take two steps at a time.
Without you the sun is gonna shine and I feel fine.

Your empty words buzz around my ears.
I know they’re feasting on my fears.
I take your judgement with a smile.
Without you I know I’ll be fine.
Track Name: Saviors
This is no meditation.
The need and pain is real.
You tell me that salvation
Lies within a faithful zeal.

Salvation for the saviors.
All you have are thoughts and prayers.
As if that were enough.

A preacher on a pulpit
Blessed with two blind eyes
Sends out thoughts and prayers
But he can’t hear your cry.

And you can sleep so well
Knowing you won’t go to hell.
