Track Name: Light Leaks
I get down over it
caught in the light we were waiting for all our lives
tell me now, how does it feel to feel like you are?
I'm in awe; I get down over it
but now that the tubes are cold, how can I watch with your eyes
fascinated at things that i do for hours anyways? I'm in awe.
every way that I waited, to find a way that I could feel like you
yeah we're on it every day of our lives; but the way my writing paralyzes
I've been counting measures in your eyes
the way we collide, you and I
I waited with a light on until all the world was ours, and all this world is ours
and all the lights between us can't wait to get away
Track Name: Jacket
here alone
I waited by these walls and eyed the signs
and I believe when the curtain opens up
is where we'll see these worlds collide and I've been waiting up til the sunrise opens up our eyes
and if you opened up you'd hear my voice call
hey there, are you waiting for us?
can you hear me calling?
I promise I hid in every aisle in your eye
the way you went before us tells us everything
tell me that you waited here and oh, I feel it all
I've been closed but I, I opened up
and if you didn't want our help, don't ask at all
I've got better things to do
and if you didn't want our help, don't ask at all
I've been more than honest, I said
hey there, are you waiting for us?
can you hear me calling?
I promise I called
to get right to the place where I felt honest
and back to the jacket that I once wore
couldn't you believe me enough?
couldn't we have waited in your home?
heading over, I'm in your eyes
heading over, I'm in your eyes
I never went home.
hey there, are you waiting for us?
can you hear me calling?
I promise I called
hey there, I'll be back I promise
nature hasn't faded, it's just fall
Track Name: Checkmate
I've been all of the things I never asked of you
How did you call it from the day I arrived?
The innocent moment you decided to keep me for a while
Did you consider me at all?
I hope I found a way into it
When you set your focus on a goal, where do I come in?
Is that enough? Babe, that you wanted it bad enough?
I've had enough. Is our moment up? Or is this moment never better?
The bet for me comes down to all the ways to get better
The way you see we come to call
Opportunity never knocks and I bet it all on the hope I hold in you,
The way to see us take it all for our own
I've been practicing it all along
I've been waiting
All the ways that I've wanted it forever
How could I have known?
Is that enough?
All the ways that you held it up high as the only important thing
I'm still waiting to say—
Track Name: Card Sharp
all my life I never needed a friend like you were just to keep me sane
and we'd take care of all my anxious ways and I felt that I knew you
all this time I never needed anything else
I'd have bet it on everything you said
but tell me honestly: I've been betrayed and I felt that I knew you
we didn't try to change, you and I but I fear we're here alone
a long, long way from home
I could see beyond it if you could see it through
dishonest from the day we met
I'm still finding places where you lied and wasted us both
and I once went along, carry on
I know it sounds illogical but can't you see the writing on the wall?
every time I handed it over
all the ways you ate it up
couldn't wait and save it up
I'm enlightened overall
by the way you said it all
oh but I, I never wanted you to go and I don't mind it all alone
Track Name: Matador
you measure your men in ways I find incredible
your heroes move in but tell me:
what does it take to break a neck?
you measure your men in ways I find incredible
a beast of burden
a bad defense
but tell me, what does it take to break a neck?
taken by the way we fall
broken like a martyr
come at me matador!
I've got my head high!
I'm not yours anymore!
you'll have my skin but not I
these eyes belong to those who can afford it
not I, not long
I never set them to the sky
what would it take to realize
your domination leads you nowhere?
come at me matador!
I've got my head high!
I'm not yours anymore!
you'll have my skin but not I
always divided by the way you wanted
