Hello 03:48
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.

Silent War 02:46
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.

Sinking Boat 01:57
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

Obvious 02:17
(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)

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…

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...
