Track Name: 720° Blaze It
I can’t say
At what age I will have seen
As much as you before 19
You spend 2 years
To reverse the last few
At the cost of the light behind your eyes
It didn’t matter how crazy you could get
I’d always recognize you
From your gaze
But now there’s something in the way
Your blank eyes
Betray the curves on your face

You’re a pair of doll eyes and forced smile
You’re a shade of everything you used to be

I can’t say
At what year it will be
When you finally come around
You lost yourself in the pain of everyone else
And all their selfish doubt
Do you remember the nights
Were you would fall asleep
Head in my lap
When was the last time I saw that youthful innocence
Grace the curves of your mouth?

You’re a pair of doll eyes and forced smile
You’re a shade of everything you used to be

So when the world chews you up
And spits you out
And you stumble and fall
And end up face down
You should know
(it was all on you)

So when the world chews you up
And spits you out
And you stumble and fall
And end up face down
You should know

You’re a pair of doll eyes and forced smile
You’re a shade of everything you used to be

So when the world chews you up
And spits you out
And you stumble and fall
And end up face down
You should know
Track Name: Christ Air Off The Brooklyn Bridge
What would you think of me
If I said I hadn’t seen sleep since your hardwood floor
I just can’t cut my losses anymore

The tapping of the rain
Mirrored the pounding of my guilt
And the sound that it made
Was exactly how I felt

I felt old, I felt like a funeral

I left you alone
I though it might be best to break my bond with home
So it was on that call in the middle of the night
That “I love you” was your last lie
I was honest for once

I guess I’ll stay your empty trophy case
Keep silent
While saying “grow up” to yourself
Fighting off sleep and losing
Hoping you were ok
From half the world away

I can’t stay your empty trophy case

I left you alone
I though it might be best to break my bond with home
So it was on that call in the middle of the night
That “I love you” was your last lie
I was honest for once
Track Name: Popped An Ollie, I'm Sweatin'
I’m off on the tip of your tongue
The one that you’ve been biting from the start
And I could say I tried my best to reach you
But I couldn’t play the part

We said we’d keep in touch
Argued over who’d miss who the most
I could say I tried my best to reach you
But it wasn’t even close

I don’t want to know why
Everything stays the same like your last name
and the lingering of this season’s rain
I’m springing out of town
I’m sure you didn’t think I would leave
Maybe you might have noticed me
If I had been able to breath

If these 3 years next to you
Have taught me anything
It’s that motives are never clear
And anyone can be deceived.
Whether you bundle it up or sweat it off
Project your voice or whisper soft
Your method acting in the center of attention
Has you hidden in plain sight with your worst intentions

I don’t want to know why
Everything stays the same like your last name
and the lingering of this season’s rain
I’m springing out of town
I’m sure you didn’t think I would leave
Maybe you might have noticed me
If I had been able to breath
