Track Name: A Place To Rest My Head
I never thought that I would feel this way.
I'd feel my heart wear thin at eighteen
and watch my skin and bones fade grey.
Cause' I promised myself last year,
I'd make the effort and try my best
to keep my head up all this winter.
All I need is forward progress.

I spent the summer feeling angry
about a couple things.
About everything you said
and how it meant the world to me.
Well, I found strength inside heartbreak
so I won't waste my breath.
You were merely holding me back.

So, I found myself deep within these streets.
I never thought it'd take you absence
to pull me through.
But, I mean it when I say that I'm trying
to keep my head up.

But, I'm still the same old kid,
I just need to shake this weight.
All this winter I've felt bitter.
Yeah, I've seen some better days.
I'm so sick of feeling like this.
I miss the way it used to be.
This year has took it's toll
but, it won't get what's left of me.

We only have what we remember
and I just want to be remembered.
For the hope I hope to give
and all the words I put together.
I swear I pour my heart out into every word I sing.
So, I hope to god you're listening.

So, I found myself deep within these streets.
I never thought it'd take you absence
to pull me through.
But, I mean it when I say that I'm trying
to keep my head up.

I think I finally found some steady footing in my life.
A place where I can rest my head
and keep me warm at night.
Yeah, I think i'll be just fine.

So, I found myself deep within these streets.
I never thought it'd take you absence
to pull me through.
But, I mean it when I say that I'm trying
to keep my head up. (x2)

I just need to keep my head up.

Track Name: Right Through
I'm starting to think that there's a reason
some people say I've changed.
I can't comfortable with anyone
and push everything away.
I always find myself too caught up.
Yeah, i'm in over my head.
Now all that's left is bitter thoughts
and every word I left unsaid.

I've been counting the days
till I can finally make some progress.
Cause' I just can't bear the thought
that this is it for me.
I'm sick of losing everything
that I've worked for in the past year.
I need these city lights to guide me home.

I swear six months ago, I never saw this coming.
I guess in retrospect I really should have known.
I used to have so much faith
in this whole world around me.
Lately, I've lost touch with everything.

I've been counting the days
till I can finally make some progress.
Cause' I just can't bear the thought
that this is it for me.
I'm sick of losing everything
that I've worked for in the past year.
I need these city lights to guide me home.

So I've been saying keep your head up kid,
I swear it will get better.
When I can barely stand on my own feet.
I need to find my strength in all these memories.

I've been counting the days
till I can finally make some progress.
Cause' I just can't bear the thought
that this is it for me.
I'm sick of losing everything
that I've worked for in the past year.
I need these city lights to guide me home.
Track Name: Leaving
I used to think that leaving home would solve all of my problems,
that the western coast is where I'm meant to be.
I used to think that I was something special
but I'm so damn young, so nervous and naive.

I thought that I would be okay.
That I'd overcome my biggest fears
and leave the rest at bay.
I thought that finally leaving home
would bring out the best in me.

Who am I and where am I supposed to be?
Am I meant to be this broken
or am I just lost out at sea?
Cause' I'm treading in these waters
but I swear they're way too deep.
I need the tide to pull me in
so I can rest my tired feet.

I've spent every single day wasting away
like a ghost roaming this world,
trying to find bones that will fit me.
I know I've made mistakes, lost myself along the way
but I'm doing the best I can.
I know that my only hope is
to let the tide wash over everything
and finally let this go.
I know I need to let this go.


I thought that this would clear my head
and I'd find comfort in distance
when I had truly nothing left.
But now I wake up in the face of regret.
I know, I know I've been a wreck
but I won't let this broken compass
guide me down this path again.
Cause' I've had everything I needed here all along.
I guess I was wrong.
Track Name: Temple
And I let you fall
beneath my feet this year
like you meant nothing at all
to anyone or anything.
Well, you used to mean the world to me.
I never thought I'd grow this cold.
I've been bitter all this winter
I'm better off alone.

Well, I've been spending every day
in the front seat of Billy's car
listening to all these songs by Modern Baseball.
I live with regret, misery and loneliness.
I hope you never end up like this.
I'm so defeated.

So I promised myself
this whole year, I swore it would get better
when I figure out who I'm supposed to be.
So I'll spend this whole semester
trying to pull myself together
cause' I nearly fell apart right at the seams.

Every day back then
I felt myself falling with the leaves.
Now, I'm buried under all this snow and apathy.
I feel broken and defeated.
I lay awake here every night.
I'm hoping with the warmer weather
that I'll finally feel alright.

So I promised myself
this whole year, I swore it would get better
when I figure out who I'm supposed to be.
So I'll spend this whole semester
trying to pull myself together
cause' I nearly fell apart right at the seams.

Well, I've been searching every record
for the saddest songs that I can find.
Hoping that I'll find something
to make me feel alright.
I'm so sick of being tired,
I'm so tired of losing sleep
over everything I'll never be.

I've been searching for the saddest songs.
Hoping that I'll feel alright
and find something that will keep me warm inside. (2x)
Track Name: Breaking Ground
I had hopes of finally breaking ground
and figuring this thing out.
But I watched each of my dreams fade to nothing.
I put my faith in honesty
and hoped things would work out for me.
But I guess my intentions never even meant a thing.

I thought my heart would mend
and I'd pick up all these pieces.
Put myself in place again.
But I can't even find these words
or even stand up straight.
I guess I'm just meant to be this way.
I'm losing hope in everyone and everything around me.

The line work in my head
says this feeling in my chest,
will come and go just like the seasons
but I'm still filled with emptiness.
Maybe it's the pressure I put on myself
or the fact that I just always seem
to ruin everything good for me.

and now I know, it's clear to me.

I can't take all these bitter thoughts inside my head
or the way these old bones of mine can't handle anything.
I thought that things would change.
As I got older, it'd get better but
It always stays the same.

Despite my biggest fears
and all my insecurities.
I'm doing all I can to keep my head up
and be the man I'm supposed to be.
Cause' I've been burning every bridge,
in hopes I find something in this.
I guess I've come to realize how lost I am.

I can't take all these bitter thoughts inside my head
or the way these old bones of mine can't handle anything.
I thought that things would change.
As I got older, it'd get better
but It always stays the same.
