Track Name: Scene 1: Introduction
Have you ever seen a heart so big
That it made you cry?
Please up those tears away
And the red is your eyes
Have you ever seen a smile so bright that it made you scared?
Come along with me
For the vicious ride
With a smoke in may hand
And the wind in your hair

Well there's a boy in his bed
With a girl by the wall
With their eyes on each other
It's hardest they'll fall
He says "Come to me babe." So she crawls to his chest.
Just two more souls with a hope for the best

Have you ever seen a sleep so sound
That it made you sick?
Wake up now. Talk to me.
She's sleeping. She's dreaming.
Have you ever felt a grip so tight
That it made you sing?
Just keep squeezing baby
As hard as you can
And enjoy the song that comes
From this man

Well there's a boy in his bed
With a girl by the wall
With their eyes on each other
It's hardest they'll fall
He says "Come to me babe." So she crawls to his chest.
Just two more souls with a hope for the best
If everything goes to plan
I will see you again
But if not then I guess that
We'll be the best if friends

It's not like me to wander
It's not like me to scream
But it's just like me to see
Just how you're doing
Every hour
Every day
Every week

I can't defeat this
I'm strapping pictures to my chest
And I can remember
The last time this hole
Was in the way
There goes my mind
So I guess that I'll
Pick it up right off the floor
Dust it off and just
Sit and wait for you

I'm still waiting x2

Our life's a piano
My heart is the keys
And your heart is the strings
And if we ever fell apart
The singer would never
Have song to sing x3

(Well there's a boy in his bed

Track Name: Scene 2: Lady after Lady
It's been six short months since we started this dance.
The state of hugging, touching, kissing, and holding hands.
I don't know what I'd do without this romance.
But there's something going on and it's scaring me. It's scaring me to death.

I could've sworn I only gave myself to one, but why do I see five?

I see one pretty lady
She is staring at me
She loves me to death
She doesn't want me to leave
But lady 2 is a killer
She's a demon seed
She'll fuck with your mind
She's incredibly mean
Lady 3 will come home
With nothing to say
Even if I ask "How was your day?"
Ladies 4 and 5 are kind of a tie
Just cause 4 cries a little bit less than 5

Sometimes I feel like I am completely surrounded.
I think "What did I do to deserve this?"
You see I gave her my all and she did the same for me.
But now it's too far gone and I've got company.

Sure, it's my fantasy but why in the same body?

I see one pretty lady
She is staring at me
She loves me to death
She doesn't want me to leave
But lady 2 is a killer
She's a demon seed
She'll fuck with your mind
She's incredibly mean
Lady 3 will come home
With nothing to say
Even if I ask "Are you ok?"
Ladies 4 and 5 are kind of a tie
Just cause 4 cries a little bit less than 5

1 will leave you with a kiss
2 will leave you with clenched fists
3 will leave without a word
5 and 4 are sadness you wish you never heard. (X2)

[guitar solo]

I see one pretty lady
She is staring at me
She loves me to death
She doesn't want me to leave
But lady 2 is a killer
She's a demon seed
She'll fuck with your mind
She's incredibly mean
Lady 3 will come home
With nothing to say
Even if I ask "How was your day? (ARE YOU OK?!?!)"
Ladies 4 and 5 are kind of a tie
Just cause 4 cries a little bit less than 5
But number 1 is one of a kind
And I'm glad to say she's mine. All mine.
Ya that's what I was thinking. And the first and 4th track are both over 6 minutes
Track Name: Scene 3: Destination Elsewhere
I swear to god I was patient
With this cold reeling sensation
I can say this now
But these things just aren't getting better
Your goddamned mood
Always under the weather
Pissed off, and showing it

You're sore
So sore
This life is
A privilege

So now we're back at this in pass
I wish to god I could settle this
I'd say come home darling
We love you here
But no
These things are never easy
You need to watch your step
Because bear traps hurt like hell when they snap.

You're sore
So sore
This life is
A privilege

Man up x4

I swear to god I've been patient
And I think it was worth it
It's time to leave this place
Let's go home
Track Name: Scene 4: Thieves in the Palace
Look at this place
Look at this place, dear
I think we can say....we've made it.
Well look at my face
Look at my face
And see this smile I wear
Ya, we made it.
Let's move the tears to the back
Take the anger out
This is our safe house
Unbox the smiles and excitement
We'll board up these walls
Where No one can get to us as long as we're here

Inseparable
We're here
And I swear to never let this go

Wake up to purring
My girl by the wall
Could it be this is heaven?
Don't leave just yet
I need this moment to last for a while
I'm in heaven
Kick out the feline
Open the window
Let the sun light your skin
I'll devour you
Enjoy the taste
Lets pretend we're infected and you
Need to save us from this poison
That is killing us here.

Inseparable
We're here
And I swear to never let this go
And I swear to never let you go

Something's terribly wrong
Someone's changing my song
This life is
All we had

Ex friends pave the path for ex lovers
This stage was set for our flourishing future
We're here
But it's getting hard to see you

What friends, dear? Where?
Do you see them?
Because all I see are enemies.
And it's starting to look like you're one of them.

So now I'm the shapeshifter
(You're misreading this, just leave her)
Since when did my own thoughts resort to peer pressure?
(Whispers)

My life, my friends, my family
At this point they wouldn't even recognize me, but this drastic a change is out of the question.
Track Name: Scene 5: The End
So it's finally happened
The inevitable
Wish that we could've fixed it
But I think I made the right call
But now...

There's a boy in his bed
With a girl by the wall
But he doesn't know her name
Was this the right call?

So it's finally set in
This tragedy
3 years of our lives shared
In stereo

There's a girl in her bed
And she's all alone
She sees me in her head
Was this the right call?

HEY!!

Listen up
All my losers, quitters, users, and sinners
Welcome to life, the place where we all fail and succeed together. You are not alone, your vision's blurred and hands are numb. But with whatever choices we have to make, be confident and scream this is done

There boy in his head
And a girl all alone
Sleeping in too different beds
Was this the right call?
But she says she's happy
But I'm all alone
But happy is what I intended for her
So this was the right call

This had to be
Slightly meant to be x4

(Number 1 is one of a kind) x8

(Look at this place, Look at this place dear) x8

(You're sore. So sore. This life is a privilege.)

(There's a boy in his bed with a girl by the wall. With there eyes on each other it's the hardest they'll fall. He says "Come to me, babe." So she crawls to his chest. Just two more souls with a hope for the best. ) x2

This was definitely a mistake
But there's a world out there
And I didn't want you to miss it
But I know that if you were with me
Then you'd miss it
And everything that it had to offer
But I promise

I'm not going anywhere..anymore
I'm not going anywhere..anymore
Anymore

So now I'm trying hard to fix this

And you've got things to say, so I'd better sit down and listen
I told the truth last time and the truth had set you free
But you called me and asked me
But I let time take it's toll
Now you're happy and I promise

I'm not going anywhere..anymore
I'm not going anywhere..anymore
Anymore

It had to be slightly meant to be

I'm not going anywhere..anymore
I'm not going anywhere..anymore
Anymore
I'm not going anywhere..anymore
I'm not going anywhere..anymore
Anymore

This was definitely a mistake
But there's a world out there
And I didn't want you to miss it Anymore
