lyrics
You never cared, you never called, you never stopped building your walls. Was it something I did, that made me stop being worth it? I understand that it's not all your fault, some things fall out of control.

I've been a train wreck ever since the day, you walked into my life. I'm sick of being broken down and tossed aside. Maybe one day you'll see, when you're done with all the boys you meet, that you fucked up and there's no going back. Not this time.

I've given up on you for good this time, after giving up too much for you in my life. "It's not the same" she said, well I never want to see your face again, I'm not giving in, I'm giving up it's different.

I guess you didn't get the feelings that I tried hard to convey. You didn't get what the silence meant when I didn't know what to say.

Now you've found better ways to spend your time, while I sit at home, and you deconstruct my mind.

Get out of my head, I can't do this again, I distanced myself with the hope that I could handle it. I watched myself cave in. I haven't been the same since.

I say I hate you just to keep up appearances, I play it off because I'm scared of you happy with him.

Hang your head
You'll do your best to forget
The fact that I exist.
And while you've got your friends,
I'll fade away again.
Track Name: Arm's Length
I think too much.
I stress and worry that I'm losing touch with myself and my friends.
At arm's length I hold them, and it's not fair at all.

All I can think about is how I would give anything to be your everything.

If I could let you go, don't you think I would?
I'd go back in time if I thought I could.
I'm sorry that I bothered you, but you know that I'm right and there's nothing we can do.

I worry about my future.
If what I'm doing is worth it.
And how I know you won't be in it, you'll never be again.
That path has reached its end.

All I can think about is how I would give anything to be your everything.
I'm just so bitter. And I'm not getting better.
I cause myself to doubt the way I write you out, and it gets me nowhere.
I'm gaining nothing.

The one who gave you everything lost everything.
And you're just fine.
I need some time to recoup, shift my thoughts from you.
And if I'm lucky I'll forget the things you put me through.
Track Name: Painted
Paint me a different color than your memories. Change it the way you wish that you could change me.

This is what it feels like, like a fist fight, between my knuckles and the drywall. I'll admit that, for a while, I wasn't doing well on my own.

Dead is the romantic in me. So we'll just have to mourn how he used to be. He's not the same anymore.
Track Name: Silver
I crave the days we spent not butting heads.
The nights we spent in separate beds.
Every step I thought you'd take with me is lost because you don't know who to be.

I'm not waiting around for you, or for this, anymore.
I hope you're happy, but don't you dare call me again.
I regret that I ever thought we had a chance.

I tore my heart out, buried it deep inside the ground.
I didn't want it to be found, didn't want it with you around.
I found something new, something better and I can't let you affect that.
I can't let my resolve crack.

I'm not waiting around for you, or for this, anymore.
I hope you're happy, but don't you dare call me again.
I regret that I ever thought we had a chance.

My mind's stuck on the past.
Stuck on photographs and painting mental pictures using thoughts and words I misheard.
I guess I miss her, just enough to never tear myself away for good.
But would I even if I could?

I doubt I'll let this go.
I'll hold it over your head.
And when I hear your name, I know I'll never forget.

I doubt I'll care anymore.
Just live my life wasting breath.
But when you hear my name, I hope you're filled with regret.
