Track Name: The Chords
this is the voice of guilt
through song its intentions reveal
can't hide under shade
can't sleep it away
this is the voice of guilt

this is the hand of guilt
as it drags you through a field
as bare as the skies
surrounded by eyes
this is the hand of guilt

this is the heart of guilt
just want you to know how to feel
don't act all alone
when you've got a home
this is the heart of guilt

this is the mind of guilt
sharpens you up like steel
so you can cut through
what future comes to
this is the mind of guilt
Track Name: Wall of a Smile (feat. Emily Peal)
where are you
when I start to talk too?

through the roof
and over the moon's blue

I'm talking
and you're not listening
I am here
and you are missing
Track Name: When a Liar Tells the Truth (feat. Emily Peal)
You used to read your dreams to me
you'd paint them so they'd seem to be
the truth
so unlike you
it was what i saw through
you'd make sure
I'd infer
I'm one you wouldn't lie to
but I knew

Last night I dreamt you were the head of a waterfall
and your intent in that form was to warn of wash us all
and all the animals and I listened up
and you spoke to the people but
they wouldn't listen
and I knew they'd soon drown
you were then alive building me a boat
it was the one I had always hoped
you'd take me on someday
to battle through the waves
that I knew
we we're coming too close to
--
and I'd watch you eat
I'd watch you sleep
I'd watch you be yourself
till I could not see
the beginning of you-
-the end of me
I felt peace
I felt free
Track Name: Remember
if I have all my memories inside me
then why don't they remind me what I know
they never help
they never help - they let me go

but you won't believe
anything I say
why would you think any other way?
Track Name: Sleep Against Me
I bet you're the only one who ever knows exactly how I feel when I feel anything at all
but you're the only (the only one) out of everyone with my love who let me fall

you went
gracefully into the night and I
tried to keep both of my eyes open
but I
couldn't fight the deep dark sleep
and I woke up all tangled in sheets and alone again
again
Track Name: A Plea
I know it well
but even I can't define it
I miss you now like I didn't back then
I miss you now like I didn't know what I was doing
(cause I probably didn't)

but please give up on me now
cause together we're dead
Track Name: Thrall
oh, the air smelled like home at summer time
so you were there in your head for the rest of the night
the field's grown bold in the July light
and you don't feel old and forget what your life is like now

and you'll fall asleep
with the summer heat
in your head
and you'll wake up
in your misery
and think that you're dead
(even though you're not)
Track Name: Bound
the smell of your summer was gone
with the radiator's song
whistling out "oooohhhhh"
the house creaked and leaked in cold
-rosey cheeks, runny nose-
(at least the spiders will leave you alone)

I think I never knew
how to define you
to draw a line
say "that's a time that I'm into"
I'm such a miserable man
I went and got my life stuck in
a bottle and a spare room

I am so great at staying warm
but I'm cold
I know I'm cold
I know I can be cold

I think I never knew
how to define you
to draw a line
say "that's a time that I'm into"
I'm such a miserable man
I went and got my life stuck in
a bottle and a spare room
Track Name: Making You Cry
in the summer when the sun is gone
I know you know I was wrong
to say all those things that I said
the words I will always forget
cause life just works out well for me
which in the end just leaves me so sorry for you

in the winter when the world is white
I know you know I was right
to stand with the things I believed
even when they made no one happy
because the truth will always just catch up to you anyway

in the summer when the sun is gone
I know you know I was wrong
in the winter when the world is white
I know you know I was right
