Track Name: Worth Missing
Rest assured that all the meaning of my words will get obscured - we never seem to get it right, no no no. I can bet that every message that I send ends in regret - we should learn to leave it be. Where it ends up one day, we will see.

Times have changed and were both changing and I'm never sure of the path we’re taking. All those new boys you've been kissing and all the while I've become someone that's worth missing.

Baby place your bet, I bet that you just ain’t seen nothing yet - things ain’t panning out for us (at least not the way i planned). So tell me once or twice, I swear that I will take all your advice: the future is a mystery and you seem pretty sure, but who knows?

Times have changed and were both changing and I'm never sure of the path we’re taking. All those new boys you've been kissing and all the while I've become someone that's worth missing.

I can take the fall, memories and all - can you take the fall without missing me?

Times have changed and we're both changing and I’m never sure of the path we’re taking. All those new boys you've been kissing...but I don’t care - I've become someone that's worth missing, all the while I've become someone that's worth missing.
Track Name: Answer
Increase the pressure, decrease the pleasure - I’m such an ugly mess. New research and findings leaves me rewinding all of tonight’s events. Fuck all this thinking, my thoughts are sinking deeper in I go. I say that I’m fine, but it’s on my mind all of the time. Babe, I need an answer.

I can’t take these thoughts, they’re repeating, so self-defeating, so fucking ridiculous. I know I’m better, I know I’m smarter but I fall prey to it. So fuck all your protest, fuck all the things that you once meant to me. This relentless pursuing leads me to ruins, why do I do it? Babe, I need an answer - before all my time is gone.

It’s a puzzle I’ve been trying to solve for so long. The issue always trips my red flags and alarms. It’s hard to watch you walk when I crawl. It’s so hard to see what I got when you got what I want.

There’s a fire in my heart and nothing seems to put it out. So I gotta know, I gotta know: babe, I need an answer.
Track Name: The Alchemist
It's not inside your bones, it's leaving you alone. No more night's lying awake, no more pain left to take, no more resisting this. It came as a surprise, like five across the eyes: that all the things that I want, all the things that i got never felt like it was enough.

But I found a way to play a damaged hand and make it last. I found a way to shed some light upon what's been going on with me...

‘Cause something ain't right. Hasn't been for a while. It's that same anxious heart beating in my chest. Things are gonna change, can’t continue this way - and I know I can’t live with that same anxious heartbeat anymore.

I found a way turn what I felt into something else. I found a way to live my life before I died.

I found a way to take this hurt and make it work! I found a way to take a fall and transmute it all! I found a way to spin my fate into something great - because wealthy is the man who turns his shit into gold.
Track Name: Clarity
I shackle my thoughts and bind my feelings: I feel the weight of the world when you're around. I’m sick of debates and your debate behavior, man - you're no nobody's savior, you are not what you think you are.

I thought you great; intellectual and sophisticate. A man of the world. Golden heart and rebel fisted, but the mark you have missed it: your point gets lost in the snide diatribe.

I believed in the things you told me I believed in the things you said. Back and forth floating around somewhere in my head. And I would live the way you showed me, and I held part of the cross you'd bear. I could not feel independent, but now that you're not here I can see it clearly now: I don't need you around.
Track Name: Full Speed Ahead
Headstrong, my heart is like a bomb - light the fuse and make a move I'm ready to go off; I've been laying dormant for so long. Set sail my fear is back at bay and I'm off to bigger seas in hopes for better days - I couldn't lay in that slump forever. I swear to god I'll never fucking feel that way again.

My heads strong, my faith is like a bomb, and with that combination you know I just can't go wrong because nothing or no one gets the best of me. I know things are gonna change and I don't know all the myriad of possibilities - all I know is I couldn't lay that slump forever. I swear to god I'll never fucking feel that way again.

Stay strong.
Keep calm.
Track Name: Going Down
I felt after my ship was going down you seemed quite content to watch it drown. I screamed but did not see you around. Slow I sank after my ship was going down.

Now I see her eyes gaze into mine. What a lovely view on an autumn night. She held her hand right into mine and she held it tight after my ship was going down.

Looks like you’re unimpressed with what you've found. Have fun dating the losers in your town. Looks like our queen has lost her crown. I'm king of the sea after my ship was going down.

I see her eyes gaze into mine. She treats me good, I treat her kind. She holds me down, I hold her tight all through the night, after my ship was going down. I see her eyes gaze into mine. Fuck the life I knew, leave it all behind. I'm high on life and drunk off wine. I feel just fine after my ship was going down.

Why even fight if you're always right? What an unrelenting never ending waste of both our time...

I see her eyes gaze into mine. What a lovely girl what a gorgeous sight. Seems like the truth washed up to tide: my heart still floats after my ship was going down.
Track Name: #1
I know the price that I paid for it, and the sacrifices you made for it - we know the reasons why it's ending. We tried our best not to let it go, but it’s for the for the best if we need to grow. Despite the tragic, we both know what we had - so in the back pages of your heart I know I’ll stay #1.

When all the fights started getting stale and the bed we slept became a bed of nails - we learned what’s good ain't always easy. But I believe in love and what occurred - so much in fact who even cares whether we're forever or forever never? In the back pages of your heart I know I’ll stay #1.

In a park on a warm sunny day you'll see a child who looks like me. Your mind will race with what could be - same for me.

All good things have to fade away to die or live again someday. Time will tell us what we're meant for. Half of my heart still longs for you, but half understands what we gotta do. New lips we kiss, but we both know who we miss...

In the back pages of your heart I know I'll stay #1.
