Track Name: Staircases
This place has seen the faces
Of souls who've ceased their paces
Bound by the shackles that weigh them down
We need to break
This fucking chain
When everyone knows in the end

Once you go you can never come home
Where home is the fire that will keep you from cold, cold, cold, cold
Its not the end worth fighting for
Its who you meet on the way to the door
So now I know, I suppose, I can keep it closed

The endless days of climbing
Leave troubles all behind me
The thread that weaves the dream is all but gone
The closer to the top
The more my heart drops
To the bottom where they all said we could not live

Once you go you can always come home, home, home, home

Its not the end worth fighting for
Its who you meet on the way to the door
So now I know, I supposed, I can keep it closed

Its not the end worth fighting for
Its who you meet on the way to the door
Its been a lifetime, its been a lifetime
I wonder what's on the other side

Its not the end worth fighting for
Its who you meet on the way to the door
So now I know, I suppose, I can keep it closed
Track Name: Glass Castles
The day has come at last
The day has come the time at last
What will be will always clash
With what you see when your mind unfolds
You've been dealt a hand of gold
I've been told to look forward, not back
I'm keeping track of all the times you said
That you'd be there until the end
Well where are you now? Where are you now?

As my dreams crash down
What will I have left?
Still I'm waiting, always waiting as time goes by
Yet I'm alright

My hands are tied to the face of the clock
And I'm stuck, stuck, stuck when the hands stop
The anticipation's killing me
Never leaves, never leaves, never leaves me alone
My thoughts begin to multiply
I cannot live inside my mind
Halloucinations showing me
What I see, what I see, what do I see?

As the waves crash down
And you find what's left
Only then will you temper what you expect

Still I'm waiting always waiting as time goes by
Yet I'm not alright
No more waiting, I'm not waiting,
Waiting for anything any more

Woah, woah, woah, woah

As the waves crash down
And you find what's left
Only then will you temper what you expect

(What did you expect?)
I thought this day would never come
(What did you expect?)
I built glass castles in my head
(What did you expect?)
A crack, a crack I fear has found
A hole inside my castle now
And it will come down, but I'll be on my way

I've been chased by these notions
Of what my life's supposed to be
I walk the trail of my own shadows
To myself they're leading me
The rut's grown deep I'm sick of climbing
From the depths of so-called "dreams"
You see the things I hold most dearly
Are never quite as they may seem

I've been chased by these notions
Of what my life's supposed to be
I walk the trail of my own shadows
To myself they're leading me
Track Name: The Straight and Narrow
Oh my a crooked line
An intersection of two separate minds
Head down with your nose up
Like you're sickened and I'm sick and contagious
I'm not contagious
I don't need your approval you can think again

I long for you to see what's driving me
To turn every stone, make my way along the road unknown
Don't take the beaten path
You will never last
On the straight and narrow

When all you do is what's been done
You draw yourself into the sun
Your search for warmth brings fire down
Nobody makes a sound its contagious
So contagious
The city crumbles under embers just to be born again

I long for you to see what's driving me
To turn every stone, make my way along the road unknown
Don't take the beaten path
You will never last
On the straight and narrow

Da da da da da

I long for you to see what's driving me
To turn every stone, make my way along the road unknown
Don't take the beaten path
You will never last
On the straight and narrow
Track Name: The Ground We Move
I jump to inconclusive conclusions
So lost and disillusioned
Through my eyes you'd see the choices made
Always have such big mistakes
I face my life avoiding fate
When chances come I hesitate
I'll wait always searching for something more
I'll search for what I had before

Stay, you've already found it
Nothing is perfect
What isn't perfect is perfect as it is
So take a good look around at the things you have found
And all of the time you've spent
Working for them
Don't waste away waiting for a better day

Time, there is never enough time
Can't help but analyze
Every thought I think the words I say
My mind is leading me astray
I waste away for better days
I dig and dig and dig my grave

I'll wait in a tomb that keeps me to myself
I'm always craving something else

Stay you've already found it
Nothing is perfect
What isn't perfect is perfect as it is
So take a good look around at the things you have found
And all of the time you've spent
Working for them
Don't waste away waiting for a better day

The show's not over 'til the curtain's drawn
The stage is empty the crowd's all gone
The ground we move, by the steps we take
In the end, our memories make

Woah, woah, woah, woah

The show's not over 'til the curtain's drawn
The stage is empty the crowd's all gone
The ground we move, by the steps we take
In the end, our memories make
