Track Name: Caught in the Blend
I saw through a wormhole,
so I went through the other side

bring me back.

there are mistakes you can't wash away
no matter how hard you try
though I'll fight to go back in time
and make things right

I'm caught in the blend
and if this ever ends
can we just pretend
that none of this happened?

take me back.

I acted so selfish
when I left you on the other side
so now I live in regret
with this pain I cannot hide

I can't go back now.
(take me back)
no, I can't go back now

no matter how hard I try,
I can't go back and make this right
please make things right

I'm caught in the blend
and if this ever ends
can we just pretend
that none of this happened?
Track Name: No Place Like Home
I don't see you in my dreams
I see you in real life
you're always someone else
well who am I?

I chase you through these scenes
but you don't recognize me
I got lost somewhere in between
our home and where you left me

and you're here too
but you don't see me
how I see you

I shouted your name
but you were someone else
I'm not crazy
I'm just by myself
in a world that's nothing like my home
and you are not who I used to know

you're not who I know.

I shouted your name
but you were someone else
I'm not crazy
I'm just by myself
in a world that's nothing like my home
and you are not who I used to know

you're not who I used to know.
Track Name: He's the Devil
No...

I swear I heard your laugh
I followed it's path
it took me right back to where I wanted to be.

and I..

I think it's funny how
you say you'd rather be dead
than with somebody else
but look at you now...

and what I saw there,
I won't ever forget
you and the devil hand in hand

No...

you and the devil hand in hand
you and the devil hand in hand

I will not follow your voice again
cause what I see when I find your face,
I can not handle

(I can't, I can't)

it's choked back, covered up
bloody nose, empty cup

(are you falling apart or just making me?)

searching eyes, empty luck
careless words, empty, for heavens sake
that's what I saw there
with you and him

I won't ever forget
you and the devil hand in hand

No...

you and the devil hand in hand
you and the devil hand in hand

you and the devil...

choke it back, cover up
bloody nose, empty cup

are you falling apart
or just making me?

I fought and found my way back,
but it was all for nothing
because I found you with the devil.
Track Name: Greetings From El Salvador
well fuck you
for lying
don't you ever wonder why I gave up trying
yeah, I'll keep it down, I'm sorry,
just drown me out of your head.

and fuck you
for trying
to change me and succeeding
how did I let my guard down
the one time it'd count?

some lessons are better off
learned the hard way
to stick it in,
stick it in my head
so I won't forget.

you know,
the worst part is...
you don't even know what you did
you think it's a secret still

but I know
more than I bet you are comfortable with me knowing
well, don't mention it,
but you can guess that I've been let in
on your dirty little secret
and trust me,
I never wanted to know
at all.
Track Name: Apologetics
Maybe I'm too soft
cause there's nothing that I can't forgive
am I making this way harder than it should have been?
you really seem to hold on to all the worst times where I'd slipped
Anne I'm sorry,
I was just so scared of choosing the wrong way.
but that's exactly what I did,
that's exactly what I did.

well what else could I give?

so when you take the time to look back,
(look back, look back)
remember you weren't the one who turned away.
(who turned away?)

I was young, I was stupid
is that how you remember me?
I was caught up in the person
you told me I should be

now I'm dying just to see you
in the place we used to meet
now I'm reaching and you're leaving
to a place I can hardly see.

I have nothing left to give.

so if you have the heart to look back,
(look back, look back)
remember I was the one who turned away.
(who turned away)
so if you have the heart to look back,
(look back, look back)
remember I was the one who turned away.

do you have...

do you have the heart to forgive?
Track Name: Our Hands
We're putting up our hands
to stop the anxiety
no one understands,
not even you and me.

is it really worth it to drop everything
we held on to for all these years?

Why do you seem like you're okay?
Why is this ripping holes through me?

You knew me like no one else
now I'm alone in my own hell
where all I have is your memory
and I can't stop it from fading.

I'm putting out my hands
to stop myself from falling
and if I ever land,
I swear and I promise
I'll do my best to get back up,
show you how strong I can be.

Why do you seem like you're okay?
Why is this ripping holes through me?

You knew me like no one else
now I'm alone in my own hell
where all I have is your memory
and I can't stop it from fading.

oh...

Now I know you won't come back.
Now I know.
Track Name: Myself
Fear is a hallway covered in photos of weddings in nice frames.
I'm too scared to walk down, not ready to see a familiar face,
your familiar face.

are they jumping the gun?
am I too scared to pick it up?

to pick it up...

and did they tie themselves together to feel grown up?
or do they truly believe that they're in love?
to love someone else do you have to feel alone enough?

before I love you,
I want to be happy by myself.
I don't want to root myself in someone else.

I'm not scared of love going away
but I leave when it comes near me.

Well I'm still learning to love myself.

learning to love, learning.

I'm learning to love myself.
Track Name: He'll Never...
He was there when a wormhole opened
saw through to the other side
saw that he could have been something
he couldn't swallow that goddamn pride

so he cast a spell and stepped right through
pursuing the life that he never knew
and yeah, he's happy but the past still hurts
being that man was so much worse.

well, he carried through a magic spyglass
it showed him you now,
his dear past
just to know you'd be alright
yet he doesn't know how bad it'll hurt to...

watch you fall in love again.

He grew old in this new dimension
did his best to live his life
always felt like something was missing
it was you who he left behind

and every time he looked back,
the memories hurt way too bad
so he put down the old spyglass
the last thing he saw was your life on track

despite the pain he wanted to look back,
he wanted to see you happy
but he didn't know how to react when he...

saw you fall in love again.

he'll never fall in love again.

he'll never...
Track Name: Summoning Demons
I don't have much to talk about,
don't know why I sought you,
fought for you,
called you out

I don't have much to say
it was wrong of me
unthoughtfully
contested your apathy

and I hope you can forget it
I surely wish you would.
I wish I could do so myself,
because thinking of you is like summoning demons

why are you all I think about?
I used to be so happy
until I let you ruin me
and why are you all I see?
behind my eyes and on my mind so constantly

and I don't know how to forget you
I truly hoped I would.
you said it was best yourself
because thinking of you is like summoning demons
and I'm sick of living in hell


I can't forget you.
I can't forgive you.

I just want to forget you
I truly hoped I would
I want whats best for myself
just thinking of you is like summoning demons
and I'm sick of living in hell
Track Name: I Never Had Frands Anyway
Just stick with your metaphors
about how you broke up and you can't move on
or about the night you drove alone like most big boys do
was that too hard for you?
or is it why you hate yourself and the world around you?

well suck it up
you're 21, you act like you're 2

Well I am not in this to make enemies,
but can't you see through your fake lenses
how stupid this all seems?

Well I, I swear to god...
if I hear one more uninspired song
about how down and sad you are
I might throw in the towel
and the mic
and the guitar
and all our gear

and everything else

well I am not in this...

I am not in this to make enemies
but can't you see through your fake lenses
how stupid this all seems?
