Track Name: See the End
Stop; have you ever seen the stars collide
They're noticed by the ones we love
And heaven waits for us to fall
They know just how we will
It's a gamble either way; I can't see the light
It's a gamble either way; I can't see the stars

And we all cross the stars above the sky and lead it to our dying light; Love our lives so much, we'd die for them.
I never want to see the end

And as we will fall from what we say we are
We know that right and wrong prevail
But heaven waits for us to fall; they know just how we will
It's a gamble either way; I can't see the light
It's a gamble either way; I can't see the stars

And we all cross the stars above the sky and lead it to our dying light; Love our lives so much, we'd die for them.
I never want to see the end

Here we stand, you and I; and I know that you've chosen yourself
Take a step, only one; and I know that you will fall

And we all cross the stars above the sky
And we all will lead it to our dying light
And we all cross the stars above the sky and lead it to our dying light; Love our lives so much, we'd die for them.
I never want to see the end; never want to see the end
Track Name: Tired Soul
Walk in a room, your best dress on; hair, teeth, nails done
You're all alone, no big surprise; you've been here before tonight

We all will make emotional mistakes brought by cheap wine and red lips, the kind you wish you could forget
And we are all emotional mistakes; they love us, but we, we never see the end of it until they're lying straight before us

Walk to the back where you belong; if someone sees you, you may get caught
It's better that they never get, get to know you, cause what have you got to prove to them?

We all will make emotional mistakes brought by cheap wine and red lips, the kind you wish you could forget
And we are all emotional mistakes; they love us, but we, we never see the end of it
It doesn't have to happen to you

Does anybody have some rest for a tired soul
They're offering so much more than we take them for
Walk in a room, you will be heard; oh you
I've got a match; let's see just what we can do
Track Name: Off to College
Buildings surround you old and tall, with people and their minds so sharply roam
And lovers lying in the grass while friends are throwing frisbees on the lawn
Some friends invite you to a party with loud machines and people singing songs
And the music, it is captivating; the boys are beautiful, but you don't belong

And you say, what am I doing here? I thought I'd find myself here, but I'm just lost

Seven in the morning sounds so early when you rest your hand on snooze
Your clothes, they are much hipper now, with beanies, backpacks, pants and your new shoes
Fireworks set off in evening time; you can't think of a better way
Now back off to your room you go; that paper's due tomorrow, don't be late

And you say I've never had a better place, and you know you never want to let go

Chairs are all aligned in Straighter rows than you've ever seen them
And with everyone all dressed in blue, your gowns and caps reflecting off flashes
And mom says that she knows some twenty-something that'll be perfect for you back home
But all you can keep thinking about is, where will my roots now be known

And you say, if there is anything I've learned it's that today will forever be burned
Because in fifty years, when I've got nothing to prove I'll know that in this time
I've used the very parts to make the whole of the rest of my life
Yes, I know somehow it'll be alright
Track Name: Better Than Something
I can't see brighter better days; I like it better when it hurts
I can't see better when you show me, but I love it, love that you don't work
When you start the strings with the wings; the love you say you want is better but it never gets me saying that

I can't see how you're better than nothing; come on, come on; the ones you say they're mean
But I kept holding on for something, trying to believe you're something better, better than it seems

And I feel chalk fading from the sidewalk; the ones we wrote the notes that we couldn't say out loud
It makes my stomach sick and my bones are breaking to know that you'd never be coming back around
When you hear the strings, with the wings, the love you say you want is better but it never gets to saying that

I can't see how you're better than nothing; come on, come on; the ones you say they're mean
But I kept holding on for something, trying to believe you're something better, better than it seems
When you start the strings, with the wings
When you start the strings with the wings; the love you say you want is better but it never gets me saying that

I can't see how you're better than nothing; come on, come on; the ones you say they're mean
But I kept holding on for something, trying to believe you're something better, better than it seems
Now I know that you ain't better, better than it seems
Track Name: Last Days
Bright lights blazing in the distance with deep tracks on the borderline
Stomachs sick as they head on to their death; no shame where the water lies
Young chaps are kissing photos while parents pray to their figurines
And fat cats signing contracts while they sympathize and ask for money on TV

Well these are the last days; an endless pirouette where you're better alone, you're better just to say
Come what may, why you be so brave? Oh you better not pretend to run away; why you scared?
It gets better in the end

On towers they lie awake, never knowing when to strike again
Colors bleeding in this fight; it's not as easy as blue and red
Can you tell why their hearts are hardened? Can you tell why they never sleep at night?
You've got your guns, I've got my words; we'll decide to disagree on these days

An endless pirouette where you're better alone, you're better just to say
Come what may, why you be so brave? Oh you better not pretend to run away; why you scared?
It gets better in the end

I've got a way for all of the things that you put me through; I've got a way around you
And I've got a way for all of mistakes that were made cause
You've got your best but you can't see the rest; why'd you stay?

I've got a way to make this right; I've got a way to work this
To run away, why you scared? Oh you better not pretend
(An endless pirouette where you're better alone, you're better just to)
(I've got a way to make this right; I've got a way)
