Track Name: Noah's Arcade
25 and half-alive
The years have been unkind
Time is up, you've had enough
Maybe I'm just in over my head again
I sink deeper into myself
How could I ever let you in?
Time is up, you've had enough

So, stay right where you are
You are the early autumn air
I am the ringing in your ear
Don't tell me what I want to hear
If you could let somebody in
I want to sleep under your skin
As long as you're happy, I'll stay out of the way

25, barely alive
I wish I was someone else
Stay right where you are
You are the early autumn air
I am the ringing in your ear
Don't tell me what I want to hear
If you could let somebody in
I want to sleep under your skin
As long as you're happy, I'll stay out of the way

Maybe it's something we'll get through
Maybe I have something to lose
I'm getting further from the truth
I'm getting further from you

Stay right where you are
You are the early autumn air
I am the ringing in your ear
Don't tell me what I want to hear
If you could let somebody in
I want to sleep under your skin
Track Name: Better Weather
She said I'm done
Putting up with these fucking songs
I know are all about me
Why are you never around me?
You're always gone
I hate when I wake up alone
You're off for better weather
Forget to call me from wherever

Keep me around as a reminder
Tie me around your little finger
So you won't forget the life you left behind
When you change your mind

She said I'm tired of being so fucking tired
Maybe it's out of our hands
Are we burning at both ends?
Another day, another road
Another reason to leave home
Well, maybe this was perfect
Maybe this was never worth it

Keep me around as a reminder
Tie me around your little finger
So you won't forget the life you left behind
When you change your mind

I don't need another friend
You know that I have enough of them
I need you to be real
Not a dream, not imaginary
I need something less temporary
Track Name: Red Shift
I woke up late, the day we both laid waste
To everything we built
A golden city on a hill
I'm sorry I slept in, it'll never happen again
We'll never have this again
We are who we are,
Still ringing in my ears
We are who we are

Out of focus, but are we out of time?
You could be anything you want
So why would you be mine?
Out of patience, good things come to those who wait
Did you get crushed under the weight?

A decade of hating myself, but everything ends
Will we ever love again?
I wish you'd say that you wished I would stay
But I know you don't
So you know I won't

Out of focus, but are we out of time?
You could be anything you want
So why would you be mine?
Out of patience, good things come to those who wait
Did you get crushed under the weight

Now there's nothing left
(Are we out of patience?)
But space and emptiness
(Or are we out of time?)
Now there's nothing left
(Are we out of focus?)
But space and emptiness
(Or are we out of time?)
Track Name: Keep To Myself (In F Sharp Minor)
I hate the rain inside my head, and the distance between my body and your bed. I hate that I let you go sail off into the unknown. I'm no good and everyone knows it. I keep to myself and constantly show it. Do I cross your mind even for a second? I know that I don't. I hate the road that took you away from me. You used to say that I was the ground beneath your feet. I'm gonna let this happen. Bet my sanity on your reaction. I just want you back. I'm sick of always chasing you I know you hate my attitude but I just want you back. I'm sick of always chasing you I know you hate my attitude. I hate the rain inside my head, the distance to your bed pushed you away.
Track Name: 20/20
Open up, I wish you'd let me in
Your voice inside my head
Your words are sinking in
Alone in bet, I sit, while you're with him
Has my window closed?
Is my time wearing thin?

I no longer think about you
I no longer have to worry about you

I choke on words, never know what to say
I was falling in love,
How could you throw me away?
I can't sleep, knowing you're not far
Are you thinking of me, wherever you are?

I no longer dream about you
I no longer have to lie about you

So, where are you now?
And where do you go?
It keeps up nights that I'm not taking you home
I want to be yours
I want you to be mine
I guess it's ok, I'll get you next time
I'll get you next time
