Track Name: Breathe/Sleep
slow it down, if only for a moment
just breathe and close my eyes
why make plans for tomorrow?
when tomorrow’s just a matter of time
science knows we all got one shot
don’t let it slip away
but there’s comfort in distraction
and i’ve got time to waste…

…all i need’s another lifetime
don’t let it slip away
killing time’s a capital crime
and you end up doin time

hold on! we’re not done with yesterday!
it’s just a temporary plan
some say there’s no place for nostalgia
“don’t focus on the past!“
but there’s comfort in what has been
and no one will ever change…

…all i need’s another lifetime
don’t let it slip away
killing time’s a capital crime
and you end up doin time

don’t let it go to waste…

…all i need’s another lifetime
don’t let it slip away
killing time’s a capital crime
and you got hell to pay
Track Name: Said and Done
eyes closed, sippin on your morning coffee oh
the next few days will feel like hell for you
and there’s no crutch left for you to use and run back
the cover’s blown, it’s too late

why don’t you just take a number, stand in line

I remember all the best words that you said
and all the fun we had, the times we spent
and it’s so easy just to fall back and pretend
that all we had were good intentions (and)

red-eyed, sippin on a late night drink again
it’s easier that way to stay half sane
and through self-medication
you don’t have to be so patient
it keeps the demons quiet

why don’t you take all the pills that you can find?

I remember all the best words that you said
and all the fun we had, the times we spent
and it’s so easy just to fall back and pretend
that all we had were good intentions (and)

I remember all the best words that you said
and all the fun we had, the times we spent
and it’s not easy just to bend and not to break
cause we just keep repeating our mistakes
Track Name: Miss the Aim
all these words coming out of my mouth
hear myself talking, it's my voice, no doubt
and I can read all the signs over there
I know this place
I know why we came here

we got so high along the way
chasing whatever would get us away

slowly the reasons to stay get lost in all the decay
and now we’re fading into places I don’t…
…don’t ever want to be

don't you say it out loud, put on a smile, get a drink, shut your mouth
unless you plan on giving in to the fear
let's roll with the punches, just don't let em near

the days go by, we lost our way
maybe it’s never going to be ok

Slowly the reasons to stay get lost in all the decay
and now we’re fading into places I don’t…
…don’t ever want to be

Slowly the reasons to stay get lost in all the decay
and now we’re fading into places I don’t…
…don’t ever want to be
