Track Name: A Change of Pace
we've just gotta get out of this town

my focus is lost
the damage is done
everything around me has lost its appeal
so far you cannot
even grasp my thought
now I'm searching everywhere, avoiding the contact

I'm walking around completely by myself
there's groups of people everywhere
but I still feel alone
my ride to this house is wasted
and just passed out
now I'm searching everywhere, avoiding the contact

it happens every day and I can't even hold my breath for half a second
words out of my mouth are forced like the giant beads of sweat that run down my face
I'm the one you can't save
give me one reason to stay

I've given up on trying to impress everyone
they've taken all that I have but I won't say that I'm done
(we're not done)
I'll still stay standing even if I fall down
I'll get right back up, I'll see you around

I've just gotta get out of this town
Track Name: Creekside
so here's a toast to wishing my life was more poetic
nothing's going quite like I planned it
but I know that
everything will turn around one day
and the justification of everyone here is saying that
my life can't always be perfect

maybe it's not the best day of my life
but I'm doing fine, I'm doing fine
(doing fine)
maybe I'll do the same thing a hundred times
but that's alright, I'm doing fine
I'm doing fine

now I'm used to starting every single conversation
I think it's time we rearrange this
(I guess ignorance is just bliss)
but the rain on my window won't let me forget you
it just falls to the floor
(if you want it it's yours)

I went to the place I used to work
now it has all become surreal
I've discovered my dreams are in my own hands

maybe it's not the best day of my life
but I'm doing fine, I'm doing fine
(doing fine)
maybe I'll do the same thing a hundred times
but that's alright, I'm doing fine
I'm doing fine

I went to the middle of this place
and I found that everyone is gone
looks like the plaza died so long ago

looks like the plaza died so long ago

maybe it's not the best day of my life
but I'm doing fine, I'm doing fine
(doing fine)
maybe I'll do the same thing a hundred times
but that's alright, I'm doing fine
I'm doing fine

maybe it's not the best day of our lives
but we're doing fine, we're doing fine
maybe we'll do the same thing a thousand times
but that's alright, 'cause we're doing fine
we're doing fine
Track Name: Reflection
today was the first day that I came around to this side of my head
thinking up stories and making up names
and wishing the years held more
than just simple games

today was the first day that I gave everyone words they've never said
the same situations with newer faces
but the same things
come back and scare me

so maybe I can't breathe
but maybe it's just me

and these thoughts that I have
they keep coming back
I won't let them get to me
no matter how much goes wrong
I promise I will stay strong
if not for you, I'll do it for me

yesterday I found myself throwing aside the real me for you
and now every day that picture is painted
but that's not who I am
and I'm sorry if that's the impression I made on you
but I swear to god it's true
I'm the same person I was two years ago

and these thoughts that I have
they keep coming back
I won't let them get to me
no matter how much goes wrong
I promise I will stay strong
if not for you, I'll do it for me

and I haven't changed one bit
I'm standing here now
this is it
you've taken what I used to be and created a monster
it's killing me
they're killing me

and these thoughts that I have
they keep coming back
I won't let them get to me
(get to me)
no matter how much goes wrong
I promise I will stay strong
if not for you, I'll do it for me

if not for you, I'll do it for me
Track Name: Through Your Eyes
you keep running from my arms to his
you never thought what it does to me
but I keep coming back to this
you gave me up when I saw you leave

I can't remember if I ever made a sound
that gave you any reason to stick around
I felt the waves crash down onto my back
my shoulders gave way, I'm laying flat

my bed is colder from now on
my life is showing me that I wasn't so wrong
but I can't get over what we had
all these damn pictures are just weight on my back

you keep running from my arms to his
you never thought what it does to me
but I keep coming back to this
you gave me up when I saw you leave

there are things I never felt need to express to you
(I watched it all fall apart as I stood still)
but now I'm bent over backwards trying to talk to you
(my world's flying by my eyes like a bullet through the air)

you gave me every reason to believe
that it would be alright
that everything would be alright

you keep running from my arms to his
you never thought what it does to me
but I keep coming back to this
you gave me up when I saw you leave

these images that run through my head
I just wanted a chance to explain
you said everything would be alright, you lied
and said everything would be alright

you keep running from my arms to his
you never thought what it does to me
but I keep coming back to this
you gave me up when I saw you leave

I saw you run from my arms to his
and now I thought what it does to me
so now I've come back to this
I gave you up when I saw you leave
Track Name: Brighter
(yep, okay)

I break down everything everyone says
I don't try, it's just how I think
over and over again

you get what you give but you don't get what you choose
what's the point in trying if you've got so much to loose
I'm just a kid, I shouldn't feel this way
but it's so hard when things are hard to say

so let me go
let me go

my days will get brighter
