Track Name: Exchange
What can I say?
That subtlety is not your strong suit
Believe me when I say I see you
I know the games you play
Manipulating and devastating because your own life is so boring

You might think your secret's safe in the dark but I know you
I know you

You're the kind who needs all eyes
Selfish antagonist
How do you feel justified messing up someone else's life?
How can you drag another down in your pursuit of feeling right?
Such arrogance now
You crossed the line

And do you feel the weight of the world?
It must be so hard to be you
Misery loves company and I know how you love to be pitied but you picked the wrong person to worm yourself into

You're the kind who needs all eyes
Selfish antagonist
How do you feel justified messing up someone else's life?
How can you drag another down in your pursuit of feeling right?
Such arrogance now
You crossed the line

You're the biggest liar I think I've ever seen
Come on now let's bring out your true intentions from where they've been hiding
You're the biggest liar I think I've ever seen
Your act of innocence makes me so sick
We know you're the wolf in sheep's clothing
Track Name: Abandon Ship (ft. Dommie Frusteri)
Abandon ship my dear, were sinking fast
I should've know it was here, what's good will never last
When you said goodbye
And took my final hope in my life

So don't try and tell me I'm worth it
I know you too well
And when your words whisper I'm sorry
I know it's just lies you tell
Cuz all I wanted was an apology
When all you cared about was farewell
So I won't move on past your lies until you tell the truth
Abandon ship tonight
And maybe well make it out alright

The ocean floor feels cold
Against my racing heart
I should've known it would come to this from the very start
And the anchor drops to the bottom and scares me away
So I'll rush to the shore only to hear you say
yeah, you said goodbye
And took my final hope in life

So don't try and tell me I'm worth it
I know you too well
And when your words whisper I'm sorry
I know it's just lies you tell
Cuz all I wanted was an apology
When all you cared about was farewell
So I won't move on past your lies until you tell the truth
Abandon ship tonight
And maybe well make it out alright
Track Name: Red Letters
I wrote your letter in red ink
On a crinkled page of white
And I tried so many times
To avoid this moment for the sake of pride
But I wrote them, I wrote them in red

These thoughts of mine, they've been killing me
So I force 'em down to keep from suffocating
But how can I breathe, I tried to bury them deep
I feel them eating me alive this could be the end of me
I wrote them in red

I feel this constrict in the back of my throat
And all at once I regret all those things I wrote
They awakened all my doubts, all my shame, and all my fears
All the things that I've been holding onto, holding back for years

These thoughts of mine, they've been killing me
So I force 'em down to keep from suffocating
But how can I breathe, I tried to bury them deep
I feel them eating me alive this could be the end of me
I wrote them in red

These thoughts of mine, they've been killing me
These thoughts of mine, they've been killing me

These thoughts of mine, they've been killing me
So I force 'em down to keep from suffocating
But how can I breathe, I tried to bury them deep
I feel them eating me alive this could be the end of me
I wrote them in red
I wrote your letter in red
Track Name: Transparent
I try to learn from the mistakes
I try to take them and make a change
But I still say sorry way too much
I still flinch at every little touch

And I pray and hope you won't get angry
When I'm more like someone else than me

Can I be transparent with you now?
I'm so caught up in my own affairs
Trying so hard not to be scared (maybe honesty is the only way out)
Can it save my life if I set this right?

I don't even know how
Can you show me how?

I try to see in black in white but I still see shadows in the light
And you kiss the scars that wear my skin but I still won't let you in
And I've heard more goodbyes than the walls of hospitals (And I surmise I'm more broken than I know)
I'll try to change but I can't do it if your foot is out the door
Just promise me that I can be

Transparent with you now
I'm so caught up in my own affairs
Trying so hard not to be scared (maybe honesty is the only way out)
Can it save my life if I set this right?

How painful it is to open up
(I want to be, I want to be transparent)
How painful it is to love
I want to be by your side but will it ever be enough
I'll carry your burdens if you carry mine
Please don't leave my side

Can I be transparent with you now?
I'm so caught up in my own affairs
Trying so hard not to be scared (maybe honesty is the only way out)
Can it save my life if I set this right?
Track Name: Thieves
I hope you read the words I wrote
And can never let them go
I hope you sewed them inside the sleeves of your coat
And can never let me go

Now I, I won't be run by fear
Don't leave me hanging here
Grab my arm and tell me I'm not imagining
Make everything become clear

And in a moment of clarity you'll see us the way we were meant to be
We opened the box that we stole from Pandora's own hands
It's time to accept the consequences

I hope you miss the back door
And can't find your way out
And I was a thief in the night
Who painted X's on all the doors
And stole every penny you had left from the ceiling to the floor

And in a moment of clarity you'll see us the way we were meant to be
We opened the box that we stole from Pandora's own hands
It's time to accept the consequences

My vision goes white (my vision goes white)
I don't think we'll make it out alive (we'll make it out alive)
I need to wash off
All your fingerprints tonight

They've got us now
I'm bailing out
I'll take my leave like a thief, like a thief in the night

And in a moment of clarity you'll see us the way, the way we were meant to be

And in a moment of clarity you'll see us the way we were meant to be
We opened the box that we stole from Pandora's own hands
It's time to accept the consequences

And in a moment of clarity you'll see us the way we were meant to be
We opened the box that we stole from Pandora's own hands
