Track Name: Broken Clocks
Go ahead and take up all my time
It’s slipping through my hands
But it was never mine to hold

Go ahead and make the sun explode
It's telling me again
That this is my last chance to go

Every day, I wait for you

How can we believe in empty skies?
The faith we need is always incomplete
The innocence is always fading in our eyes
But this is where we belong tonight

I would rather die than let you down
I swear on my own name
I know that we will see

We stand alone on solid ground
We're planning our escape
To find the place we're running to

Every day, I wait
Counting down the seconds till we come alive again
And we begin

Can’t stop time, through my hands
Track Name: Voices
Always hiding your eyes, does it make you feel safe?
Wearing out your disguise on your dispassionate face

Secrets will come spilling out your lungs
Haunted by the truth beneath your tongue

Hello, you couldn’t lose me if you tried
And I remember why
Let go, ‘cause I’ll never disappear
And you know these voices will be here

This fiction that you design, these myths you make so misled
You write us out, one by one, from stories you’ve never read

Secrets will come spilling out your lungs
With all the melodies you've left unsung

Let it go
Let them disappear
Hold your own
And remember that these voices will be here

I know it’s all you’ve ever known, one day you’ll learn to let go
Track Name: We Are Only Strangers
We are only strangers
Somehow brought to this place by fate
Passing on the freeway, never say a word
I know that it's too late

Somehow, we couldn't hold on
I'm sorry if you feel like I let you down
But someday, your father will be gone
Will you go on?

Her face begins to show it
Slowly starts to reveal the ache
All I ever wanted was broken in your eyes
A nightmare I just can't shake

All we are, all we are
All we are, all we are, are, all...

Somehow, we couldn't hold on
I'm sorry if you feel like I let you down
But someday, your father will be gone
Will you go on?

Somehow, you never knew the truth
That all they ever did was try to save you
And someday, our father will be gone
Will you go on?
Track Name: When Morning Came
The coldest nights could always find me here
Four years gone, but it remains unclear
The frozen lights, our footsteps on the ground
Even now, the city has no sound

And still I find myself lost inside that perfect fall
We had it all
And still I find myself lost inside a crowded room
And no one knew

The days were golden, and when morning came
Disconnected, I would hold onto your name
And read through books of worlds where love could still exist
Between the lines, there was was a lesson that we missed

If only I had known
The worst was yet to come

They found us in the kitchen
Folding dollar bills into little elephants upon the window sill
All I ever wanted was to find my way back home
Even by your side, I know that I was all alone
Track Name: Gemini
Faceless shadows in the corners of my eyes
They’re not proud of who I am
‘Cause who I am’s not who I’ve been

Who are you now?
A soul without a name
And I won’t surrender anymore
This curse is mine to claim

Something’s hiding in the corners of your mouth
But if you smile, you’re a fool
‘Cause I’ve got secrets too

Who are you now?
Track Name: You Can't Fight A Ghost
All this careful quiet
Growing colder by the day
We look back, we fade away

And these softly spoken thoughts
Filled with words I cannot say
You turn to me, I turn away

When you close your eyes, is she where she belongs?
When you close your eyes, do you see where we went wrong?
