Track Name: The End Of Everything
It's the end of feeling
Your breath against my chest
The end of never knowing
What happens next until it happens
I feel the worries swimming around me
Surround me

Need the sun and rain, but I am on the bottom leaf
(Stretch my neck, but it just never reaches me)
Sun and rain, but I am on the bottom leaf
(Wanna be with you, high atop the evergreens)
Sun and rain, but I am on the bottom leaf
(Fix my head, before the end of everything)
Need the sun and the rain, but I am on the bottom leaf
Track Name: Am I Dreaming?
I'll never forget what you said
In the Subspace highway in my head
Am I dreaming, am I dead?
Was gonna ask, but then you left

Now I'm sworn to secrecy,
Settle for living in a dream
I guess you'll never understand,
I don't even understand
In my own way now I'm free,
Checked out of this reality
I guess you'll never understand,
I don't even understand

Settle for living in a dream
Track Name: Wishful Sinking
What I really want
I can only obtain in my dreams
Meanwhile my life back on Earth
Is tearing at its seams
Feel like a fish swimming up the channel
No one will know if I'll ever make it
Or be eaten

Have trouble dealing with the obstacles I face
Though I seem exceptional at digging my own grave
Difficult to figure out how to spend my final days
Waiting
Track Name: Suspend Your Disbelief
Didn't think it possible
To find what you are
Thought the light inside your eyes
Was reserved for just the stars

So suspend your disbelief,
And you'll see what I can see

Right in front me
I'm watching myself go
Stark raving mad
To say out loud what I know

You make nature want to sing,
You defy everything

Suspend your disbelief
Defy everything
Track Name: Sleep Song
What's keeping you up?
Can't shake the feeling?
Is it in the closet?

If you're afraid, now don't be
If something's there, then show me
I'll make it go away

The only power is the fear that you give it
Track Name: The Argument
How can I summarize the reasons why
The way I felt at first got left behind?
For almost zero reason I could find,
Let alone what I could fumble to describe

You're just as bad as me,
Give it time, and you'll see
The flaws appear like when
Sunlight hits the dust in the air

How can I explain it to you?
When I can't explain it to myself

Oh, you're just as bad as me
Give it time and you'll see
The flaws appear
Like dust in the air, dust in the air

All they'll see is my back against the wall
Don't make this any longer than it has to be
(Don't try to fight it, I'm trying to fulfill it all)

You want an easy fix,
But you can't fix love with any of these things
I know I've tried it,
You can't always fight it
You want an easy fix,
But you can't fix love with a dollop of easiness
I know you can't always fight
Track Name: I've Got A Bad Feeling About This
I'm running out of things
Things that make me happy
I would give anything
Just to feel anything again
Like the palm of your hand,
Just something other than
My newly lifeless head

These holes I dig myself
(Are exacerbated by everybody else)

And you're of no help to me
I guess finally we'll see
Who makes it alone

These holes I dig myself
(Are exacerbated by everybody else)

People expect so much from you
They don't seem to realize, yeah
They don't seem to realize
(The toll it takes)

The toll it takes on you
