Sean This album is a fantastic farewell from a phenomenal group. The amount of emotion contained within this album, and within their live shows is absolutely astonishing. Sad to see them go, but they left a magnificent gift in their wake. Favorite track: So this is what it feels like.

breath after breath there's small traces of lies lined on the back of my neck and I'm wasting the air in my lungs words filled with false hopes lead cowards on tight ropes the same ropes that bind us (lies/lust) so put on this act and keep denying the fact that you're nothing but a liar with nothing to live for crawling on all fours begging for some more I cant believe I fell for this or that I even fell for you you made up all of the rules as if they didn't apply to you and they only applied to me I can hear the cracks in your voice through the cracks of vitreous walls and you're trying so hard to come clean but I'm sure you had your reasons but it's hard to tell at this point if the truth will set you free with every breath you took you left a trail of lies Leading everyone on that you were the victim and I was the villain At this point I would've gladly taken the roll just to know how it feels But these words are not your own. I will never be free, nor do i want to be I'm shackled in your chains so I'll never truly be alone you will never see what you truly meant to me you're swimming through my pain, only my body is bound to bone breath after breath there's small traces of lies lined on the back of my neck and I'm wasting the air in my lungs words filled with false hopes lead cowards on tight ropes the same ropes that bind us (lies/lust) so put on this act and keep denying the fact that you're nothing but a liar with nothing to live for crawling on all fours begging for some more I cant believe I fell for this or that I even fell for you pull the glass from my side my dear, there's blood on your hands pull the wool from my eyes, I'm trying to find my path pull the glass from your lips my hear, you've spoken your last pull the wool from your skin, and come see the damage you've done pull the glass.

Goodnight 04:07
my hands are shaking, anxiety is such a lonely word my chest, it trembles with every breath I take we'll be safe if we stay right here x2 like children in a sandbox they're singing us to sleep with their hands over our mouths making promises we can't keep follow me through the smoke and I'll lead us to the light or leave me here in the dark just kiss me goodnight she ran from the sand as the stars sang a constellation opens it's mouth and sang like a trumpet the fabric of shadows has formed a window silhouettes of a whale, bright lights casting shadows we're just kids in a sandbox with wide eyes broadcasting fear she's entranced in the light, as the stars sang take her from the light, leave them in the sand now she's gone, and we're alive did she just disappear, or did she die? where are we now? where is the sky? and then I awoke from a great flash of light it was the sun she drew her sword and tore holes in the sky and then covered my eyes so I could sleep at night I am finally awake. I can see the light she drew her sword and traced lines in her wrists who would ever have thought she'd end her life like this? now she's finally awake, she can finally see the light

that morning I woke up to a pain in my chest while her dead eyes were still filled with tears she didn't disappear, it was the latter while her body laid as still as a stone and the blade was still in her hand, shaking violently as if it wanted nothing to do with her death I tried to wake myself as if I was still dreaming the lights in the sky were barely blinding the shouts from the sea were barely silent I slept to a dying dream, I awake to a living nightmare the air was cold and so was she my ribs gave way so I could breath amongst the sheets were grains of sand mixed in with blood and blade in hand and I recall back to my dream where I had seen her in the light where the stars had held me back from her where our voices tore a hole in the sky and then the whale took her away to a place where I can't go and that was when she drew her sword and cut her wrist real deep and slow and as she did she broke in tears and rid herself of a broken life and everything had become clear as soon as skin embraced the knife how can I ever trust you if I can't trust myself? my head hangs heavy over you and I'm still triyng to wake you up I tried to bring out the best in me but I'll never be enough these dreams are all I ever see and you were haunting me in mine I take the blade out of your hand and hold you close for one last time now I know why she never said goodnight why couldn't you just speak to me? I could've saved you I can't believe that this is how it ends I couldn't save you

my mother was faded to a ghost in disguise as the sun set under the sky my father was already gone he left me entombed in my mothers eyes follow the feathers of the wisp that left you nowhere to be found come to life on the wings of relief face the tide for what lies underneath retrace the footsteps of the ones who took you half dead on the ground with feathers of a different color they took me as one of their own and we sang our songs of success and failures and compared them just to find out that we're not alone I'm not a perfect man I've made mistake but I'm willing to try to find forgiveness in the eyes of those I once held close to my heart follow the feathers of the wisp that left you nowhere to be found retrace the footsteps of the ones who took you half dead on the ground praise the guardians who carried you home through the dark and leave behind what tried to tear this family apart with feathers of a different color they took me as one of their own and we sang our songs of success and failures and compared them just to find out that we're not alone I'm not a perfect man I've made mistake but I'm willing to try to find forgiveness in the eyes of those I once held close to my heart as she lies, she's talking in her sleep the ashes are one with the ocean now the wind carried them as far as they could go but I will remember you forever through the years of the sand and the snow and your colors have faded to grey and they're harder to see through the smoke my colors have faded away as did my memories of you come to life on the wings of relief face the tide for what lies underneath as they rise, let the water recede close your eyes, and let me wash out to sea

I'm Here 01:46
she never wanted her life to end like this always cautious with how she carried on betrayal clung to her heart like a vice while her friends were just standing there laughing and then she had realized that this was apart of the plan her so called friends were the ones who had buried her hopes and her dreams how could she ever recover from this? and I should've been there, when you needed me most and I will never let her walk home alone again I should've been there my phone rang, I knew it was her from the ringtone I gave her she was hysterical and begged me to come and pick her up I said I'll be right there she told me everything that happened I told her those girls were never to be trusted and then she cried even more and buried her head into my chest I wrapped my arms around her and said I'm here but this is not the first time this has happened before not just to her but it had surely had happened to someone you know never at one point was she asking for it she never wanted this she only wanted to be loved

For You 02:42
formless figures casting shadows on the walls and silent screams echo through out the halls and every time I close my eyes I see yours staring back at me It's been four long years and where are you? I wake in the morning glow next to you ever changing, shape-shifting face and I barely recognize you your fall from grace fills this empty space in my bed as I'm laid to rest by your ghost all I wanted was your sympathy but I'll never get it all I got was a collapsed heart threatened by the slightest touch this constellation used to sing constantly now only the stars around it are standing in silence bowing their heads my hands aren't shaking anymore you're not who I thought you were you're not the girl that I fell for you're not who I thought you were and everything you said, it didn't mean shit my dear this is for you a song I wrote in hopes you'd hear I hope it haunts you in your sleep in every way you hate and fear I hate what you've become or maybe you were like this all along I hate what you've become I hate my life and I hate this song My dear I wrote this song for you I hope you're proud of what you did I hope it keeps you up at night

the trees took this house and the rain washed away all the memories it held the floorboards laid out like cracked open ribs where a heart had once dwelled and it barely looks familiar anymore and neither do I, I don't recognize my reflection ever since you died so here I am after so many years the trees took this house and the roots had held it down the floor was covered in maple leaves and countless washed away memories his ashes were soaked into the ground I tried to scream but there was no sound Thomas can you still hear me I feel that I've lost my way this house is no longer ours my brothers ghost is hiding in my old room as if it were a safe place to hide but instead has become his tomb my brothers still in my head and he still haunts me every night I live with only one regret never having the chance to say goodbye Thomas our family isn't mad that you took your own life we only wish that there was a way to go back when you were still alive just keep watching over us and always keep us in mind I'll be with you again someday and it'll be just like old times
8.
I'm sorry I live inside such a tortured mind and nothing could save me, so I couldn't save us there's drops of blood left on the piano where you had once played and on the pillow next to me where you had once laid it drowns out the familiar smell of you and I know that it's my fault so now I search for your voice through the static on the radio because your song used to fill my ears like a rush of wind oh, there's a place just for me in hell for the things I've done and you are laying atop the dark clouds above don't worry my darling, I will pay for my crimes and on my way down, I'll look up at you as you're waving goodbye this is the end your silence is deafening the guilt the I have carried for to long is lifted at last if you could go back to the beginning would you have still sang to me or would you have left me for dead? at this point it all sounds the same so fuck it, we're all going to hell and I will be waiting together again, or perhaps it was meant to be forever at rest, we will find comfort in the flames I'm sorry I failed you. I'm sorry I killed us. Please take my hand, and sing to me one last time
9.
this is the moment, anxiety has taken over me to the point where I feel nothing oh, I hope this doesn't hurt and god if you're really there please just make it fast and please do not judge me if I've walked a different path and if my brother is next to you tell him I'm on my way I hope he knows I think about him almost every day and grandpa died when I was young, I didn't know him well but I would like to see him one last time before I go to hell because I'm not sure where I'll go, my vision is just a blur and mom I'm sorry I failed you but don't bury me in the earth just burn me in a box and scatter my ashes at sea so I may know what it feels like to finally be at peace because I'll have this body no more, all I'll have have left are memories of growing up, and growing old, and falling in love (oh god, my love!) everything goes from black to white as I'm floating towards the sky so this is what it feels like this is what it feels like to die
10.
I'm lost in the bottom of a bottle getting tired of trying to find a way out I don't want to leave, so I'll just sit here alone and wonder when the hell did all of the pain start I'll crawl out of bed breathing fire half stoned, half awake in the rain the ceiling fan spinning circles in applause "well done you're a failure with a black heart" I'm so tired of waking up with a half mind I'm so tired of waking up with a heavy heart I'm so tired of waking up all alone I'm so tired of denying this is all my fault tell me what I did because I don't remember and I never thought I would last until November so I give up, and who gives a fuck don't bother telling her I loved her she won't believe me anyway I can still hear your voice coming over the clouds I'm trying to scream but I'm not as loud you tell me to run when I'm crawling on the ground I can still hear your voice coming over the clouds.
