Track Name: Broken Doors
Did you really think that you could drop me
 and not expect me to break
Well I’m still trying piece by piece,
to make sense of how you

let go of all your reason
and let it all go to waste

With only a word, and nothing more.
You decided to slam it shut,
to lock me behind your broken door
now I guess I’m out of luck
But you’re alone too

If all you wanted was some certainty,
Well I can tell you, I certainly cared.
Still chasing things that hurt you
well I guess that I’m no better there

I tried to give you some security
to show you there was someone out there

With only a word, and nothing more.
You decided to slam it shut,
to lock me behind your broken door
now I guess I’m out of luck
But you’re alone too

I don't know who this is in front of me
But, she's no where near the person that she used to be
and, after all of this it doens't add up
how you treat me like a stranger now
Well


High places is where this was headed,
So who the hell are you, and where the hell did she go
I get it that you’re fucked up, But I’ve known it all along,
The only things that changed is that I cant be there to help you fix whats always been wrong
Track Name: Wishing Well
I’ll keep this song short and sweet,
To hope to not to bother you this week
I’m hanging onto friendship by thread
I guess that’s what I get for what I said

Throwing pennies in the water, one by one
This wishing well is losing its touch
Our paths grow further, day by day

I’m running out of my luck it seems
Almost ran out of time to set you free
I can't stop to catch my breath,
Please take me at my word, you’re better off without this

Some nights, I wish I never left you
Hanging onto regret just like you held me tight
Yeah we may have had the perfect time
But then the time go to is never right

At least I pick em' well they’ll say
For awhile I’d even give the time of day
Now I’m giving myself this time alone,
To figure out where this could have gone

I’m running out of my luck it seems
Almost ran out of time to set you free
I can’t stop to catch my breath
Please take me at my word, you’re better off without this

I’m running out, but I’m nothing to miss
You’re better off without this
I can’t stop to catch my breath,
But I’ll be there, to catch you if you need it.
Track Name: So You Know
And so she stares, out into this world
Right from the hill, she knew once as a girl.
She looks down, hides the tears from my eyes, turning around cause she wont let me see her cry

Just so you know, I’ve thought about this my whole life,
And listen close, its all alright
It’s time to go, and move on from this old life
I know you know, you’re worth this fight tonight

As time goes on, grief fills her days
As memories made, all full of mistakes
You think of me, while I’m thinking of you
Fall asleep on the tracks, let your darkest dreams come true

Just so you know, I’ve thought about this my whole life,
And listen close, its all alright
It’s time to go, and move on from this old life
I know you know, you’re worth this fight tonight

(Instrumental)
Now you’re gone, and now you’re gone
Fall asleep on the tracks. I guess this is the end
And her body starts to tremble, like the cold steel bellow,
And she takes her final breaths as the train-whistle blows
And a bright white light, over takes her sunken eyes,
and the sound of the engine is drowned out by her mothers cries
How could you do this? How could you?
Now you’re gone, I guess its time for me to go too.
Track Name: Millhouse
The church bells on Sunday sang us a song
One of untimely exits, and something’s gone wrong,
And I can’t and I won’t fight these tears anymore
My heart is too shattered my eyes are too sore

So we’ll gather around and we’ll talk amongst friends
We’ll laugh about the good times, and weep about the end
And we’ll ask you what made you do this to yourself
Why couldn’t we have been there if you needed help

So here’s to you, friend, you’re gonna stay 17, up in your
milhouse you’re finally free
From evils that plagued you in this cold world below
I know you’re happy there but its so sad to see you go

So we’ll flock to the overpass, sleepless unrest
To light candles above the highway where you took
your last breathe
And it was just so hard, to see your mother there
Begging for son back in hopeless despair
She said, son how could you do this to yourself
Why couldn’t I have been there when you needed help

So here’s to you, son, you're gonna stay 17, up in your milhouse you’re finally free
From the evils that plagued you in this cold world bellow
I know you’re happy there, but it kills me to see you go

He said dry those tears love, I’m sorry too
I’ll see you when your sunsets and we’ll start a new
Let this cold rain remind you, I still live in your heart
I'll be waiting here patiently, the day you depart
So heres to you love, you're gonna stay 17
Track Name: Showing Bones, Hiding Scars
The constant starvation to lose these flaws, you tell yourself
Self annihilation, is never easy to tell
You see your life so imperfect, but don’t you see?
This mistreatment isn’t what you're meant to be

Careful, you don’t want to trigger me
Cause another relapse of failed misery
Every failure and poor quality
Adds another fading mark on me

Hating, believing in everything but yourself
Filtering out any good times, as your mind fills up, with the doubt
Depression venom, poisoning you at the veins
Chipping away at your heart, just as your body said you should be

Careful, you don’t want to trigger me
Cause another relapse of failed misery
Every failure and poor quality
Adds another fading mark on me
Careful, here comes, the triggering
Yet another relapse of failed misery
Every self inflicted tragedy
Adds another fading marks on me
Its all so triggering

Showing bones, hiding scars is what her lifes become
The constant search of perfection and so called beauty
Self-hated, being deceived, is what her minds made her believe
Never being skinny enough to be pretty

As she drags the razor across her wrists
It makes the indents, in her flesh
Every mark says she''ll never be worth it
And so she’ll never be
