Soundtrack 01:43
All the movies in my head have stopped And here I am, just waking up Life's not just a ticking clock There's so much more I could have thought All the movies in my head are gone But there's still a soundtrack going on I can't escape the sound of love So what's the use in giving up?
2.
It's hard to live by a river The water gets clearer, after it's dark And I couldn't be nearer, so pretty a mirror I'll throw rocks at my heart It's odd, the skies getting dimmer But my face looks bigger while it drifts apart I'd hide it from the sun But it's burned in everyone I'd hide it from the sun I'm blinding everyone
3.
Selfish 02:54
I'm a candle, in a dim lit house I could burn 8 days before I go out And this blood that can move me It has heat, still your hand can pass through me Like the fear that I'll be feeling Right before I die, I'm so fleeting Take a note on a dim lit screen I'm so hard to see without batteries But in the dark, if you try to see Just focusing makes things cease to be

Sean Connery 04:23
My grandfather had diabetes He died before he got to meet me My parents say he would have loved me They say that he died horribly A wolf came to me in a dream He had conquered mass and gravity Passed through a wall and looked at me I woke up to my destiny If you name your child for me Name him after your favorite actor If I get lost in the crowd could you pick me out?
5.
Listening 02:07
I can hear you up there now I wanna glow I don't know how Everything is better now That I'm downstairs You're not aware of my existence, right now Everything is surface ground But below the Earth there still is sound I hope you're feeling better now That there are walls between us And songs that greet us, when we're alone With nowhere else to go Are you listening up there? Are you listening to me now? Cause I just wanna shout Are you listening up there? Are you listening to me now? Then I won't make a sound
6.
We're all wooden people walking by Our experiences carve little nicks into our hides We hold on to those scars until we die And carve them into others, whether or not we try So I am all my friends and they are me I actually find that thought a little comforting I think all my friends are pretty sweet Even though they take their high school insecurities out on every human being I guess that's just the way we'll always be We don't let go of feelings very easily Some people try to carve a bit too deep The light that hides below the surface can be blinding I think I'd like to stand up and be seen And let the light that shines within me give life to everything But the past has carved a funnel that all my problems fall into I'm trying my very best not to catch you in the wound School carved math and language into me I'm everything my teachers ever wanted me to be But now that I'm old, I've made my frame my own Won't someone please just take a knife to me?

Peeled 01:59
I'll try to be as blunt as I can possibly be Sometimes all these abstractions just don't feel quite like me I'm trying to be the best friend I can possibly be But it feels like you all see right through me My brain cannot exist without my body My heart won't be alive without blood to bleed Sometimes I have to focus on what to be And everything else becomes blurry My face is just a mirror of how I feel So if I'm never looking at it then why can't it be peeled? I wonder how words can hurt and heal When no one seems to listen If I carve the word care on my body Would people believe I did? Then instead of asking me They could read it off my skin So you know you can see who you wanna see But I'll keep trying to be the best friend I can possibly be I cannot put agendas on human beings Even though sometimes I want to
8.
Samantha 02:37
It's hard for me To look Samantha in the eye When all that I can think of Is love that never dies It's hard for me To let Samantha see me cry When all that's running down her face Is love that never dies It's hard for me To let Samantha see me high When all I ever trip about Is love that never dies I know that I can't be afraid of everything But you've gotta be afraid of some things to be human It's hard for me To look Samantha in the eye But I know I have to try For me
9.
Something about the way we die Makes it hard to be alive It just makes me wanna shine But sometimes the light hurts my eyes Everybody wants a knife So they can carve the perfect man or wife You can train yourself to love a lie Like a bug flying towards the light I'm a weapon of a friend, shoot to kill 'til I'm rusted It feels like my lights burning out, so I'm just lying on the couch Something about the way you smile Makes me feel warm like a child I can hear the movement slide But it only makes me wanna write I'm not what my parents bought I'm not as smart as you thought Became my parents only child Now I'm just stoned all the time They need me to be their light But I've been glowing all my life And I'm tired If I am not my self Then how can I be of help To anyone else? It feels like a lot of what a person is, escapes us But that could just be me, projecting my own fears Because I let so much escape me I've already let so much escape me And I'm sad for the things I know I can't have back If I am not my self Then how can I be helped By anyone else?
10.
Don't stop walking away from me If you don't wanna be seen by me Everything I've ever been Will be left far behind But you can carry a piece of me Like it was implanted in a dream Or in your personality That part of you will always be me I don't claim to be anything Except a face on a screen And the wolf in my dream I guess I'll just stay here and sleep Sometimes light just shines And there's no one around to see Sometimes light just shines Because that's how it's meant to be I know I'll be fine I don't need to be seen Sometimes light just shines It doesn't shine for you and me Sometimes light just shines And there's no one around to see Sometimes light just shines Because that's how it's meant to be I know I'll be fine I don't need to be seen Sometimes light just shines It'll shine for eternity Sometimes light just shines I'll shine eventually.
