Track Name: Opener
Well you say that there's more to this I know something new is always on your list
So I can't help but wonder where you've been
what you've done and who you've done it with
What's on my mind? Besides the words I left behind.

Then you, then you turned on me didn't you?

Well I can't believe you brought me here, always listing all the things that you used to fear
And I listened to porous claims while you wouldn't even bother with

My cries
Was it loud enough?

So I can't help but wonder where you've been
What you've heard and who you've heard it from

Then you, then you turned on me
So you, so you turned on me didn't you?
Track Name: 1179 Boylston (Fading Away)
One time the whitest walls
Were the only things that I saw
They blocked a depressing fall
And from the bottom they were too tall
(Get up and go outside)
But it's raining
(Don't stop put up a fight)
And I'm lazy
(Go out and see a doctor)
I'm not faking
(Dial your mother's number)
I'm really fading...


Fading Away


Every night is the very same
I think I'm slowly going insane
And every thought is one to blame
They're like strangers with my name
When you think it's a real shame
Just remember I'm only this way
Because the man that I became
Is in the corner and afraid
(Yeah but so what)
He feels sort of ashamed
(The door is still shut)
When you look real hard you can see him fading away
(It seems to me what you really need is to enjoy the day but instead you're fading away)


Fading Away
Track Name: Do
I warned them all the time
But some things never get by
How can I get through?
When this is all I can do
All I can do

I told them one by one
How some things never get done
And the corner of my eye feels numb
And at the same time your foot felt a sting
All because no one listened to me
I'm not taken seriously
Seriously

Best I can do
Track Name: Hollow
I want it
hypocrite
And you got it
Dissidence
Heretic enough
Pathetic it's rough

It's not sacred writing words
It's hollow to the core

Cause I want it
Use it right
And you got it
Plain in sight
Christmas lights past December
Is that all you remember?
As it dances past the ceiling
All I want is what I'm hearing

It's not sacred writing words
It's hollow to the core

And you got it
List the price
And I want it
Rate is right
Your face constellations
Pretty cost for relations

It's not sacred writing words
It's hollow to the core
Track Name: New Recording 37
I don't want you to know
That it's time to let go
I don't want you to tell me
I'm the one that you need
And I don't want you to love
Cause I've had enough

Like a broken clock
You won't wake up

I don't want to be angry
When all you do is help me
And I don't want you to care
Cause it really isn't fair
And I don't want to listen
When all you got is reason

I've got no alarm
Nothing but charm

But you act like you don't care
And it makes me pull out my hair
You think there's plenty for us to see
And that someday I will agree
But I just don't see it happening
Overcoming the bad in me
Track Name: You're Not There
You're not there
You're not there
Can't meet you anywhere
It's bad here

There's no one who cares
No one to share

I'm not scared
I'm not scared
No one to share
But I'm not scared

And you're not there
Cause I'm not here

Listen

*Ahem

You're not there
Track Name: Shock
Well I can't help but notice what you're thinking of me
I'm so sorry, but it's rude of you
I know I can be so nice
So rude and so polite
Oh just thinking of me is so, so right

And I broke down the door to find her on the floor
I rushed to her side and tried to bring her mind off the ground
But she turned around to laugh at me
I fell back on couch
Why would she?

Just because you lost one time doesn't mean you're not the best
And maybe to some it may be a crime but really it's just a test

And my story started on page four
And it ended when you started to snore
As the book fell out of your hands it found your shoe
And it wouldn't be picked up by me or you

And I ran around
Tried to find the sound that looked away as it approached you
And I came so close almost too close for comfort
So most of the time I just pulled on my sweatshirt

Just because you lost one time doesn't mean you're not the best
And maybe to some it may be a crime but really it's just a test
