Track Name: The Giant Tire on Outer Drive
Hey there, I haven't seen you walk by this way before
To be fair, I would've noticed if you had

Your hair shines like fire in this fading September sun
Would you care to stay awhile? Join me on this tire and we can...

Swing, swing, swing swing

I never felt alive back here on Outer Drive
Would you stay with me tonight?
Would you stay with me tonight?

And we can...
Swing, swing, swing swing
Track Name: Rapture
Hold me under, my first breath of you will be my last
Unforgiving lover, lost in your dance

So roll on, roll on my love
Carry me away.
So roll on, roll on my love
Carry me away.

Drifting slowly, deep inside your tender swell
I can't tell if I'm awake or I'm dreaming

So roll on, roll on my love
Carry me away.
So roll on, roll on my love
Carry me away.

I want to sleep in your gentle caress
But I’m so afraid of what’s behind it
Can I breathe your breath?
Can I exist in your reality separate from time?

In your rhythm, turn me over and sweep me away
Another day, back to the place I belong

So roll on, roll on my love
Carry me away.
So roll on, roll on my love
Carry me away.
Track Name: Story of Now
She lies awake in the dark
The circle representing all that she could see
From the corner of her eye

She lies awake and dreams of me
And the man I used to be
And in my eyes she sees...

Someone she doesn't recognize
From before she went to sleep
He looks the same but his eyes are different
His eyes are different to me

She lies awake and dreams of me
And the man I used to be
And in my eyes she sees the story of a separate past
But she knows the promise and she knows the vow
That one account is over and the other has barely begun

The story of now

She lies awake and dreams of me
And the man I used to be
And in my eyes she sees the story of a separate past
But she knows the promise and she knows the vow
That one account is over and the other has barely begun

The story of now
Track Name: At Least We Tried
A single glance was all it took to change my life that night
As you walked along side and blurred the lines between wrong and right
Maybe if I would have second guessed the rhythm and the rhyme
Maybe if I would have second guessed you'd be alive this time

It's not my fault that it happened, that you're gone
It's not my fault that it happened, that you're gone

In a life of uncertainty this was a victimless crime
Two kids, damn the consequence, like a modern day Bonnie and Clyde
Truth be told as the story goes, though it changes every time
Truth be told as the story goes, it'll change again tonight

It's not my fault that it happened, that you're gone
It's not my fault that it happened, that you're gone

You shouldn't say what must not be said
But I can forgive you one more time
Here in my mind we'll start over again
Oh tonight, they'll say at least we tried

Truth be told as the story goes, though it changes every time
Truth be told as the story goes, it'll change again tonight

It's not my fault that it happened, that you're gone
It's not my fault that it happened, that you're gone
Track Name: Four Days of Steady Rain
So you're staying in tonight
At least that's what you told me
After four days of steady rain
It's not safe to be outside

Would you care to explain
How come I keep seeing you
In the corner of my eye with some other guy
When it's not safe to be outside

You're giving me doubts and not a reason for why I should ever believe you

A passing face in the night
Is all I have to convince me
That something's going on when you're supposed to be home
And it's making me uptight

You're giving me doubts and not a reason for why I should ever believe you
You're giving me doubts and not a reason for why I should ever believe you

Would you stay, would you stay, would you stay with me tonight?
Would you stay, would you stay, would you stay with me tonight?
Would you stay, would you stay, would you stay with me tonight?
Would you stay, would you stay, would you stay with me tonight?

Maybe it's a mistake
And maybe I just miss you
And maybe it's just coincidence that you're standing with him
In front of me while wearing my shirt

You're giving me doubts and not a reason for why I should ever believe you
You're giving me doubts and not a reason for why I should ever believe you
Track Name: Beautiful Distraction
Thirty-three miles through the night
Waiting for a sign
That you are more than a picture in my mind
More than just a breath
Taken in a melancholic dance
With the god who killed romance
Because it was nothing more
Than a beautiful distraction

If you cry, I'll follow
If we die breaking our hearts along the way
If we part, I'll reach you
There's still so far to go
Look up - cause it's a long way down

I'd give sixty years to breathe
And I'd trade blood just to see
Your vision dancing in my dreams
Like a beautiful distraction

If you cry, I'll follow
If we die breaking our hearts along the way
If we part, I'll reach you
There's still so far to go
Look up - cause it's a long way down

If you cry, I'll follow
If we die breaking our hearts along the way
If we part, I'll reach you
There's still so far to go
Look up - cause it's a long way down
Track Name: Anything/Everything
How can I describe this situation that lies before me?
How can I deny the implication of what I've done?
If you read between the lines you'll see I acted with good intention
If you see it through my eyes you'll see I had no other choice

If I said that I'm sorry would it mean more if I lie?
If I told you it killed me to kill you?
My suicide messiah, are you anything to me?
My suicide messiah, you're everything to me.

How could it end this way with you leaving this time forever
Another sad cliché, another way to say you're gone.
I don't care what people say while pointing fingers their accusing gesture
A morality soiree and I'm the uninvited and unwelcome guest

If I said that I'm sorry would it mean more if I lie?
If I told you it killed me to kill you?
My suicide messiah, are you anything to me?
My suicide messiah, you're everything to me.

In my defense this only happened because I love you
And no consequence would deter me from doing this again
Doesn't it make sense that I would take this to an extreme measure
That I would see this, see this through until the end?

If I said that I'm sorry would it mean more if I lie?
If I told you it killed me to kill you?

If I said that I'm sorry would it mean more if I lie?
If I told you it killed me to kill you?
My suicide messiah, are you anything to me?
My suicide messiah, you're everything to me.
Track Name: Denouement
You – you take my fading breath
You – warm upon my neck
In a memory diluted by our good intentions
And captured in our minds
Broken up by what we left behind

You – you completed my story
You – you resolved my dissonant chord
In another life the only thing I would have changed
Is to have met you sooner
Now kiss my lips and say goodbye

It was all for you, my love
A gift from god that I fell short of
Ever deserving in my life

Between the dream and the real
Outside our imagination
Is the world we can barely see
Before we close our eyes

It was all for you, my love
A gift from god that I fell short of
Ever deserving in my life
With one final breath and one final touch
Never forget that I love you so much
And I’m sure that I’ll see you again
