Track Name: Hello
I'll close my eyes right here
Swallow this swell of fear
My knees start trembling
Pretend you know something

Ba de dum, goes the drum

We'll take our steps on beats
Our own philosophy
Of how we'll get along
And how I'll sing this song

Ba de dum, goes the drum

And I'm off marching to you…

Would you say it?
Would you say hello to me?
If I walked your way,
You wouldn't say hello.

It's hard to say these
I kept them all inside
And now dismantling
After all this time

If you'd start focusing
You'd see intentions clear
I am the monster
And wanted nothing but you

Ba de dum, goes the drum

And I'm off marching to you…

Would you say it?
Would you say hello to me?
If I walked your way,
You wouldn't say hello.

"Things will change"
But that doesn't mean a thing
If I had my way,
We would change nothing.
Track Name: Silent War
We've been getting lost in who we are
But we've been keeping notes on the reasons

All you are, you hide me…

We've been getting lost in who we are
But we've been keeping notes on the reasons

All you are, you hide me…

I am not what you wanted.

Don't blame me, just silent this war
Done giving you reasons for more

I am not what you wanted.
Track Name: Sinking Boat
I don't even know why
We've been tying these ropes to
An ever-sinking boat
On a river that splits

Did you really think, love,
That I would never notice?

An elephant of doubt
Just sitting in your heart.

I don't even know why
We've been tying all these ropes to
An ever-sinking boat
On a river that just splits

I don't even know
I don't even notice
Track Name: Obvious
(She is this really pretty blonde. She has blue eyes, all the guys all like her. She has a really nice overview- like when you look at her, you know go "wow what a nice person" and stuff, but she actually has an edge, she's kind of a bad person)

Something's gone wrong here
I can't be at fault

(She's having a really hard time her whole life. She tries to blend in, she has to make her hair all messy and she wears really grungy clothes and everything and she just wants to be a normal girl but she goes to this really fancy private school)

I use to know you
but I'm so far gone

(she's very ambitious and she's strong-willed- like she fights and stuff and she's a very hopeful little girl)

Now, you look at me
You look at me from the dark

(He's this weird guy and he thinks- he's made up this story in his mind about he's- and he's thought it over so many times in his mind that he thinks that it really did happen even though he didn't do it. So, he's kind had this twisted thing all his life- he's really really wanted to be famous. He just wants to be famous and have everybody know who he is)

Isn't it obvious
Isn't it obvious
that I knew?

That this would happen all along

(And he happens to die because of his weak heart. So, he dies and they find him in the river later on)
Track Name: You Were Always
Go on, close your eyes

(you were always)

Thinking of me through the night

(turning pages)

To find you on every page

(you were always)

My rage, in my own sick way

(turning pages)

Do you feel it sometimes?
Do you feel it all?

And in this dark night, I find,
We were never at fault

As much as they want to tell us so.

Can't you hear them now?

(I can see them)

Alone, in their heads of spite

(I can hear them)

At night and we just sing to voids

(all the witches)

Went home and now that we're alone;

I can see you for you.

Do you feel it sometimes?
Do you feel it all?

And in this dark night, I find,
We were never at fault

As much as they want to tell us so.

You were always on the way out

You were always turning pages

You were always with the witches

You were always…
Track Name: Who Started This
la, la, la...

I won't try to change your mind
I know you're sold
But if you could look
Past yourself
You'd see who started this

la, la, la...

I won't try to change your mind
I know you're sold
But if you could look
When it's hard to admit
You had started this

la, la, la...

I can feel, when we're alone
This rumbling feeling's never gone
I can feel, when we're alone
This rumbling feeling's never gone

la, la, la...
