Track Name: Forget
For countless days and nights I've lost sleep and I've lost time,
and surrendered to the vultures in my mind.
I've got memories of poor decisions that I can't seem to shake,
My hands unnerved with tension, I just can't face anything.

I'm not trying to be a burden.
I'm just overcome with sadness and it consumes me.
Every night, I can't explain it.
but it's made a home in me, it's made a home in me.

Why do I only remember what doesn't matter,
and how could I forget what I've done right?
I aspire to be someone so much greater,
I fear the fact that I'm becoming no one, nothing.

I swore I'd never feel worthless again, but here I am.

I'm not trying to be a burden.
I'm just overcome with sadness and it consumes me.
Every night, I can't explain it.
But it's made a home in me, it's made a home in me.
When you grow older,
you feel the hole in your chest where your ambitions lie,
it's getting smaller, it's getting smaller.
Track Name: Ties
We crossed the line.
Is this really what's it's come to?
So juvenile, I thought this was below you.
The irony of everything, I couldn't stand you from the start.
And yet I trusted whole-heartedly, I learned to know better than this.

Distance, distance it kills you.
Where did all your friends go?
But there's no taking sides here.
Everybody knew, it wasn't just me.
I didn't have to tell them anything.
Everybody knew, it wasn't just me.
So vulnerable and weak,
Why did it have to be me?
I guess you had that in common with me.
So vulnerable and weak.

We shouldn't be looking back this way.
I pictured it being much different than this.
Did we really want the distance?
We shouldn't be looking back this way.
Through walls and empty glances,
We both wanted lives better than this.

But if I had known you were saying red ribbon,
I guess we never would have learned, then.
But if I had known you were saying red ribbon,
I guess we never would have learned, then.
We crossed the line.
We crossed every line.
