Track Name: Day In Day Out
fighting with my throat again
play it through my head
maybe lay it all out on the table
see where the seams split
such ideas we had
but i guess as we grew into our own
somewhere they became riddles between rivals

and as i grew towards the sun
you were still trying to take root
shed your fears to the woodwork
and i'll tally up the garbage that spews from our mouths

cause despite what we think we know
all things considered, the fools define the kings
so which one are we?
cause i can't carry your weight anymore
can barely carry my own

how far have we gotten from who we think we are?
take this in stride, we never fell so hard
day in and day out, how far from who we think we are?
or am i just speaking in riddles again?

day in and day out all have plans of their own

and i bet that you think that i'll just stay right here
and listen to the clocks sing into an empty room
yeah, i bet that you think that i'll just stay right here
right where you left me
i bet that you think the fools don't define the kings
i bet you think that i'll just stay right here
yeah i bet that you think
Track Name: Shallow
i was told that you're alone again
has it gotten to this?
has it gotten to this?

take a step back
might never get the chance
to thank the past for all that we've become
these shaking hands couldn't hold onto yours
as they dragged me through the muddy dirt
did i miss some sort of cue?
picking at the callus that wasn't there before

where were you?
when it was your waves that crashed down on me in my sleep
i'm so sick of all the good you did to me
i've dug myself out of deeper graves than this one
but i'll take you to mine
but i'll take you to mine

i was told you're alone again

just in case it never sunk below your surface
i'll float along these shallow waters for a while
i've always been good at getting tangled in the current
never thinking about what's up ahead

where were you?
when it was your waves that crashed down on me in my sleep
i'm so sick of all the good you did to me
i've dug myself out of deeper graves than this one
but i'll take you to mine
but i'll take you to mine

your stepping stones, all aligned in a row, did they keep you stable?
you're skipping stones
would you even care?
would you even care?

will i ever stop running
from the past you buried in my chest?
it's been some time
but i still feel the hole you left
even though this rotten soil beneath my feet
did nothing to hold me up
it's no good for me
