Track Name: Secrets
I've been pacing halls, stuck in church room stalls
Just to pray to a God that I haven't believed in
I wrote letters and line and burned them one at a time
And if these walls could talk I'd slit their throats just to keep them quite

You're a reminder of the Summer and everything we had
You're a liar, not a lover, watch these stage lights fade to black

I think he's your dirtiest secret
And I know how well you can keep it
And you know how it gets me
Whenever he's around

I know he's your dirtiest secret
So swallow your sorrows and regret
That I hate you and you hate me
Whenever he's around

I had you in mind while I watched sparks ignite
'Cause without fire I'll have a Hell of a time burning all of our bridges
And you said "lay me down" in the woods by your house
Don't bother call, I could care less about the way that his lips taste

So don't call it romance, call it last chance, call it "keep me while you can"
I was hopeless, you were hoping I wouldn't find your one night stand

So now you're crying like he broke your heart, yeah?
I wanna watch you fall apart and
I wanna see you fall asleep in his loving arms
And wake up to missing me

I know it hurts because he's miles away and
I wanna watch you break down in every way
I wanna see you fall asleep with a smile on
And wake up in misery
Track Name: Victim of Lust
I know your lungs fill up with smoke
The things you touch turn into gold
And every time you come around you swear you wanna settle down
His lips still break the mold

So put your hands up if you're feeling in love
I put my hands up, I feel a victim of lust

I've got the 'L-S-T', all I need is the 'U'
And if my words caught fire would yours burst too?
Or would you lay with me tangled in these sheets?
I wanna watch you burn I wanna hear you scream

I built a fire with the town's reminds
To keep you warm and keep you safe
You'd whisper what you'd do to me like something from a movie scene
With tongues like razor blades

I throw my hands to the sky and let the world know we're on fire tonight
So put your hands to the sky and let the world know we're on fire tonight

So put your hands up if you're feeling in love
So put your hands up now are you feeling in love?
I put my hands up I think I'm feeling in love
I put my hands up 'cause I fell a victim of
Track Name: Alexander (Featuring Michael Felker of Convictions)
I've been tearing down pictures from my walls I've grown to hate
'Cause in the last few years I know I've changed, but at least I haven't stayed the same
Why are you laughing? It's easy to see
That you've been lying to yourself just as much as you lie to me

Tear down my ego and tell me I'm wrong
Make me believe in the nothing you are

Take all my friends to the closest river
Pray that they drown when they don't deliver..

You've got a monster under your bed and a skeleton in your closet
Saying that you hate this confrontation when you're the one who caused it
You've got the devil raging inside you with this piano in your hands
You put on a smile for the world to see, but behind closed doors it's insanity

Take all your shots down and swallow your pills
If that doesn't kill you my words surely will

Take all my friends to the closest river
Pray that they drown when they don't deliver
The words that I'm hoping that I'd hear them say
I'll smile while they current takes them away

I found a note you wrote to yourself, it was swept away by the current
It said 'S.O.S' in bright-blood red and I decided that you weren't worth it
But when my ship has finally set sail, I would leave you stranded at the shore
But I would turn around and save you because that's what friends are for

Break every promise and let me down slow
I'd hang from these fixtures, I can't let this go

[Mike Felker]
Tell me where do you get off letting down everyone you meet?
With lies flowing through your veins, can you tell me how your heart beats?
You're building a kingdom of distrust and deceit, swallow your pride
I've laid it all on the line, just to see you throw me to the tide -- Drop dead
Track Name: Last Call
I was lost and you were found
Everything reminds me of you in this town
You're a liar and it shows through the things you do
But jealousy looks too cute on you

I don't care to know about the way you feel or think
My daddy taught me to wash away my problems with a drink
And I know the ring he bought you keeps your fingers warm
I'll brace myself for this thunder storm

You've been spending all your darkest days
Painting my heart your favorite shades of grey
But who's to say
That things can't change

Tear down my walls and tell me I could be your everything
Gunna make me, make me
Feel like I'm your only one then pawn me
Like a diamond ring

And I'll take it over ice like you're a bottle of a cheap champagne
Gunna drink you, drink you up
Like it's my last call on Saturday night
Everybody knows that you're my favorite war to fight

Attention everybody from my high school halls
My girl got engaged to the one who's wrong
Call her what you will, call her used and cheap
'Cause the boy she's gunna marry has the same name as me

You're a whore and I don't mean to be rude or rash
But you couldn't pay me to take you back
I hope that everytime he makes you scream his name
I'm the one you see, I'm the one you taste

I hate to break it to you but I hate your face
I hate to break it to you but I hate your taste
I hate to break it to you but I've lost my faith
In everyone around me and you're to blame
Track Name: One in a Million
You're like a heart attack
He's got you sweating saying he wants you back
And I'll be fine
Knowing I'll satisfy your taste with cigarettes and wine

They're saying "mayday! mayday! boys -- they drive you crazy."
Houston, we're going down
They're saying "baby! baby! girls -- they drive you insane"
How did we get here now?

You're one in a million who sleeps with the villain
And hates everybody else
You're a liar and you're a cheat but how do you find sleep
When you should be with me? When you should be with me

You've got me wasted
I'm love drunk off the way your lips feel against my lips
You're shameless
Your boyfriend's starring, you don't hesitate to reel me in

They're saying "whisper! whisper! girl I'll watch your hips stir"
My demon's coming out
They're screaming "kiss her! kiss her! boy -- you're gunna miss her"
Bet he regrets this now

You're one in a million who sleeps with the villain
And hates everybody else
You're a liar and you're a cheat but how do you find sleep
When you should be with me? When you should be with me

You're one in a million, a normal civilian
who plays everybody else
You're a faker and you're a fraud, but please don't get me wrong
It really turns me on, it really turns me on

You've got me right where you want me
Track Name: The Morning After
I'll be the ghost that you saw in your rear view mirror
I'll be your last words spoke before your falling tears
I'll be the worst in you
If you're the best in me, the best in me

You'll be the curse to my name in your final breath
Before you say "goodbye", you leave me in suspense
I'll be the promise that you break
I'll be your nervous shake, I'll be your God damn heart rate

Honey, you used to know me oh so well
And I don't even know you anymore
You're like a vision or a dream or a made up movie scene
That never happened -- but still I'm asking you

I'd ask you formally to marry me tonight
And these stars in your eyes
Have never shined so brightly
Tonight

You tied the thickest noose, wrapped it around my neck
You kicked the chair right out from underneath my legs
You've got me tongue tied and afraid
Of the storm and the winds from these title waves

I've got a long list of things that I wish I could say
But I set them on fire and sent them away
So can you tell me "how's he taste?"
I'm losing track of time, I haven't slept in days

Sweetie, you built me up just to break me down
You tied me up and kicked me while I was on the ground
He pulls your hair and makes you scream, I wake up from this terrible dream
That never happened -- but still I'm asking you

I'd ask you formally to marry me tonight
And these stars in your eyes
Have never shined so brightly
Tonight

You'd whisper secrets and made promises to keep
If you're the waves, I'm the beach
So come and crash into me
Tonight

Spin me around in circles
Spin me around in circles
Track Name: DJC is the Brightest Star in the Sky
Oh no, the hospital's calling, your heart-rate is falling (it hurts to know)
That I was at home and you were alone

Please stay, I'm sorry
Don't go, I should have never left you alone
I found all those notes that I wrote and sent to you
Before you had your breakdown

Dear God, please help me
Move on, and when you're dead and gone
I'll drop down on my knees and pray out loud
For nothing but "forgiveness"

All those words I spoke to you weren't true
I take back everything but "I love you"

Hey, read me all your vows before you take your final bow
Don't you know that you're the main attraction?
All I see are flashing lights and all I hear is your flat-line
Hear my words to show you my reaction

She said, "don't take this out on me tonight"
I said, "don't go down without a fight"
'Cause we both know that you're stronger than that
Whether you admit it or not

She wrote, "I love you but this is goodbye"
And I thought we could give it one more try
But I guess I was wrong
And I have no alibi to abide by

You could be all I need, you could be the air I breathe
You could be everything if you come back to me
I was so scared and alone wishing that you were back home
Here are some words to get through "I love you"
