Track Name: The Motions
I took you home the long way, we sat in silence for the drive. There wasn't much we could say. No words in mind.

You found me in October, my body was an atom bomb. But now that stage is over: I've found new life.

I shared my secret with you, at a time when I was unsure, If I'd be discontinued. And you stood by.

You told me about Aaron, and gave me something to relate to. You just don't stop caring, so I thank you.

We grew so close in passing, you grew dependent on the pass. And now I am surpassing, the bond we built

And I'm full of guilt.

We have to strive to know what's true, we are no more than tainted youth. We go through all the motions, but motion can have it's limits too.

I took you home the long way, we sat in silence for the drive. There wasn't much we could say. No words in mind.

No words in mind.
Track Name: Inseparable
Even after all our differences, forces draw us near and we're unable to simply forget. But maybe that's what real devotion is, you take your pedestal and pride and blindly throw them to the wind.

So let's just get married, we'll try to even out the sources of our guilt. It's too much to carry, the burden that comes with us leaving what we've built.

But you look your best at 3 AM, when you've had a chance to let me in. When your guard is down, and you're awake, but not enough to listen. Not now, but soon this will seem all too clear.

But for now we should take care of this, if it's left too long unspoken our attempts will go to waste. And we should wait 'til we make sense of this, but waiting's never been our strong suit so we'll meet up in a day.

But you look your best at 3 AM, when you've had a chance to let me in. When your guard is down, and you're awake, but not enough to listen. Not now, but soon this will seem all too clear.

Leaving you was hard to do, but I knew that I'd be kidding myself if I stuck around. And now it's on you 'cause you left me too, but if it's real, and this is true, then we can keep the love we've found.
Track Name: The Runaway
Don't tell me how you plan to quit and run away, I know exactly what your legs are thinking. You can't make this up, the drama's too intense to fake. There's no point in dulling down the facts for childish ears.

You've been planning this for years.

And oh some day, I'll come and find you just to watch you walk away. So hard to say, so hard to think less of you when in love with yesterday.

And when you're off in foreign places finding you, I will be in the back of all the things you do. I can't figure out the reason for your exodus, and it may be for the best 'cause ignorance is bliss.

And oh some day, I'll come and find you just to watch you walk away. So hard to say, so hard to think less of you when in love with yesterday.

If living here was so damn hard on you, then why was it so easy to keep taking like you do? Do you believe you'll find something new? The damage that you did will some day catch back up to you.
Track Name: The Imposter
I ride a lonely train from one end of the world to the other, when I arrive there's no-one waiting for me anymore. I've punched the ticket for this car so many times that I've lost count, and the commute has made it's wear on everyone around me.

And I bet that they'll abandon me just like the rest who could not climb the wall, I'm safely huddled up inside and I guess I'll hide the ugly colours from you all. It's boundless - the inconsistencies in me, I'm around less - the individual you seek.

I write myself into the parts I cannot act to save my life, can't take direction from this hack who has no heart or vision. I lose myself inside the plot of every bad film that I've done, I blur the lines between myself and the imposter I've become.

And I bet that they'll abandon me just like the rest who could not climb the wall, I'm safely huddled up inside and I guess I'll hide the ugly colours from you all. It's boundless - the inconsistencies in me, I'm around less - the individual you seek.

I must be going, the train is at the station, my slip is showing, I won't see you back this time next year.
