Track Name: Scent of Open Air
You're not the same as I remember
And I'm not sure that's a good thing
So I'll just say goodbye, leave you behind
Oh well, nevermind, I guess that change is fine
It's just kind of hard to keep up with
The rate everything's changing at
If I should have known better, then you should've known the best
And if you struggle to keep up, then
I am still exhausted, tired, out of breath
And I just find it hard to sympathize
For those who have known the awaiting consequences
For their entire lives
Track Name: Take Your Time
So take your time, and I'll take mine
And oh my god I feel the same
As I did last year, and
At this time, I'm starting to think
It's all my fault for being sane

It doesn't really matter to anyone anyways
Tell me why'd you think otherwise?
Take your time
Take your time
And keep it somewhere safe
Don't break your mind
With the slightest mistakes
And I'll take mine and
Put it off by itself
Maybe someplace it won't go away

So take your time
And I guess I'll be fine
Staying in the same damn place
That I've been at forever
It's always right when it's somebody else
They always make you understand
That you could never

Half the time, we're so inclined
To teach ourselves how we should think
So we can't say we were taught wrong
And I know that I've shown
A part of reason, a part to leave from
A part of not quite everything

It doesn't really matter to anyone anyways
Tell me why'd you think otherwise?
Take your time
Take your time
And keep it somewhere safe
Don't break your mind
With the slightest mistakes
And I'll take mine and
Put it off by itself
Maybe someplace it won't go away

Nothing to remember, everything to forget
I hope it evens out in the end
There's nothing to remember
Well I guess that there never has been
I hope it evens out in the end
Track Name: I Dream in Bullshit
And we let it start

I think in dreams and I dream in something fake
Couldn't be real, 'cause I know myself so well
Couldn't feel 'cause I was dreaming
But I was probably just thinking

I can walk out faster than you can walk in
Not on purpose, believe me on that
I wake up and curse myself
I dream in bullshit, and nothing else

Of course

And i guess we'll keep going

I just got a little reminder of something that didn't happen
Couldn't be real, 'cause it just couldn't

Never understood that, but i never ever really minded
No, not even now

I would like to stay, but it looks like I have to leave
Can't make decisions on my own
I return only to find
The same disappointment everytime
Track Name: Icepick
The only way to live with yourself is to find help from somebody else
How could you be lonely and never bored? How could you look without knowing what you are looking for?

Get back up from the bottom, and you go back over, and you jump right in
The water's always cold when the ice shelf's melting
Tried to keep warm, but they wouldn't let you in
Seems out of our control, but that's how we like things to be
My insides are cold

No one cares anymore
Track Name: Revision of Countenance
I don't know what you were talking about
When you said that it was probably all in my head
Because I know that words are carried right out
Escaping my throat, but vanishing quickly

And I know that these thoughts might only leave a deeper void to fill
And I don't think that I got a lot of room for emptiness

I don't know what you were talking about
When you said that it was probably all in my head
No, I don't know what you're talking about
When you say that it was probably all in my head

You could be eternal if you let your mind go
And all the things you love will be so small
Steady into nothing, you will be new
You won't need anything, and that'll be perfect
Track Name: No
No give, no take , no anything
and yes i learned that nothing is simple
forge your thoughts when they are visible
hold them tight and no one will ever know
Next time you feel to blame, know that you were only blind
cuz you were only senseless
left, right, any direction, it follows time, and so do you
