Track Name: Empty Books
Empty Books

Empty books and songs unsung
My best friends since I'm gone
It's hard to see with eyes
that have never been so dry
It's hard to make a sound
when there's nothing to be heard

Go back, leave it for now
Go back, leave me

Maybe some day I'll pass by
and I can make it up for the both of us
I could find back our once lost minds
But I can't even carry myself

I light up a cig to feel my lungs burn again,
to assure me that I'm still here
I smoke out the last living parts of you in me
Dead is how I feel, dead is what I'll be

Heavy head and rigid tongue
Dear, tell me what I want
I'll try to shelter in what I call
Empty books and songs unsung

Maybe some day I'll pass by
and I can make it up for the both of us
I could find back our once lost minds
But I can't even carry myself

Can't seem to bring myself to sleep, spend hours wide awake
In service of you I'll gladly lose myself
Track Name: Parting
Parting

Oh how the hours passed with nothing really said
Is it possible to skip a day or two, to slowly slip out of eachothers lives?

I know I promised you it would never hurt
But god this is unbearable

Is this anything?
No more words crawling out
My lips are frozen by the cold air I breathe
Uncertainty is filling up your chest

Shivering, drowning in the rain that keeps me down
My head could permanently use a temporary rest
And so I rest

Is this anything?
No more words crawling out
My lips are frozen by the cold air I breathe
Uncertainty is filling up your chest

And you don't even care anymore
Track Name: I Know We Don't
I know we don't


Tell me everything
Relieve the breath inside your lungs
I know we don't speak anymore
And I understand I am the closest thing to friends
We all carry what we love

And I've been nodding my head up to the wall
The room is closing in
Oh how I feel alone

Please bring me up to speed
I'm lost, I don't know where I'm at
A light to follow home
Can I still call you when I'm feeling down or should I keep to myself?
Did I push you away when I couldn't keep it in or did I ever cause you harm?

And I've been nodding my head up to the wall
The room is closing in
Oh how I feel alone

And I've been singing songs I've heard when I was young
And I keep looking for anything to feel again
And I know we don't
Track Name: Asleep
Asleep

I used to wake without this pain in my chest
I used to sleep without ever waking up

Now I wake up in a cold sweat (can't take off these dirty sheets)
I'm hardly dreaming anymore (a big nothing is all I see)
And though I'm lying in the same bed (where we used to be)
It doesn't feel like home

Your hands, I can still feel them
But I didn't want to wake up
And I guess your doing fine, cause I'm doing too
Or maybe I just don't?

Maybe I could float above the water
Like a pile of leaves
But I feel like a stone

Your hands, I can still feel them
But I didn't want to wake up
And I guess your doing fine, cause I'm doing too
Or maybe I just don't?

Now I wake up in a cold sweat
I'm hardly dreaming anymore
And though I'm lying in the same bed
It doesn't feel like home
