Track Name: 8:15
I was stuck between the window and your face
Chasing echoes of the compliments I can’t seem to retrace
On new figures, faded figures, boarded up, nothing configures
As your weighted breath still lingers on and on and on and on

In the post cards, and the little things
The parties left in company

Stay, wait, I left your house around 8:15
It fell away, while I was grating on a window screen
And it felt like spring again
But now it’s freezing in my bed

Partied out of my pent energies this week
Your were sick but I still kissed you, the things I’d do to make you weak
But you got sicker, your lips stiffer, as we paced through our last picture
Now I’m 3 weeks past my teenage years, the sediment's still crystal clear

You were perfect in my head
But now the summer ends again
Track Name: Cave In
Draw the line, and think things through this time
After all these years, you're still underneath me
Moving in my skin, the only place you've ever been
Comfortable, or close to home, your fathers phone
Well it wont be ringing

Save your stories, leave them for me
In the basement, hope it caves in
'Cause the feelings stay the same
And the past wont ever change
At the least you could try
And cut the ties

Burn the exits through your house
So you can feel the pressure every time that you walk out
Out from where you used to live
Provokes the though you never give
You're all the same, you never say
Track Name: Freezing Cold
Bring me down, for your mistakes
Those second floor apologies, they didn't mean a thing to me
Those brown eyes, were never mine
The rebound that you used to be, it fell of of that fence with me

And then your heart breaks, just blocks away
I got involved, I'm just not meant to stay
On sober nights please talk to me
I'm sick of watching bad shit on T.V.

I just want to see you freezing cold outside
Smoking cigarettes you clipped into my pride
The smell of spirit smokes' been burning down my mind
But I just want to see you freezing cold outside

Build them up, the walls you've made
Don't count on me for everything, won't count on you for sympathy
You want to die, well so do I
I never want this smoke to leave, intentions that you misconceived

On drunken nights, don't talk to me
Ashamed of someone you know'd never leave

It's after the fact, it's time to grow up
I'll see you again, I hope it's not much
Cause every smell would get to me
And the channel on the T.V. screen, it's gone
Move on
Track Name: Willimantic Skies
If this night would just end
I called your name from a hospital bed
Year out of sight, I left you dying
But I'm trying
And I could only wish you well
Althought it might be hard to tell
I'm sorry for those times I let you down

So don't, talk down to me

Tie me up 'cause I don't want to be alone
I'm so tired of saying the right things, and trembling at the phone
I hate to say, almost more than anything
I was happy for a second with you

I threw up on my lawn, it hasn't been that long
Since you passed out in my dorm, drinking god knows what on the floor
And I, I can't step around
These Willimantic skies broke down, but they're all that I want
Right now

I'll build my disguise 'till I can't breathe
I built my disguise now I can't breathe

But I guess that's not to be confused
With the feeling that I'm about to lose

Goodbye for now, goodbye forever, or whenever
(Don't go)
