Track Name: No Sleep 'Til Richmond
I'm normally not the one to voice my opinions,
but the way that these circumstances have played out
I feel like I owe it to you.
I feel like I should tell you it all,
but I barely even know your name.
You don't even know me at all.

Am I in love or am I just lonely?
A question I ask myself from time to time.
Are you in love or are you just settling?
Even though there could be something down here for you.

I know that it's hard to leave everything behind.
Especially when you've built your life around the comfort of being north.
But that's just how you planned it to go.
A steady job and a place to call your home.

Am I in love or am I just lonely?
A question I ask myself from time to time.
Are you in love or are you just settling?
Even though there could be something down here for you.

Will I ever answer these questions
or wait until they're answered for me?
I'm not fond with the idea of being wrong.
I can't even stomach that at all.
I can't even look at you from afar anymore.
Will I ever answer these questions
or wait until they're answered for me?
The million dollar question, I'm just waiting for the million dollar answer.

Am I in love or am I just lonely?
A question I ask myself from time to time.
Are you in love or are you just settling?
Even though there could be something down here for you.
So am I in love?
Are you in love?
Track Name: Fast Cars
So can we stay in tonight?
I'm tired and I don't want to go out
to another shitty party in this town for the third time this week.

Prescription for a bad night - blacked out on some stranger's couch.
You sure as hell won't find me there.
I'll slip away, so count me out.

You're only really honest when you've got that drink in your hand,
but there's truth in this pen.
It's when I'm comfortable at best.

Prescription for a bad night - blacked out on some stranger's couch.
You sure as hell won't find me there.
I'll slip away, so count me out.

So count me out.

I know it's hard to find yourself sometimes.
I know it's easy to find you there at the bottom of this bottle,
but you don't need to be there.

Prescription for a bad night - blacked out on some stranger's couch.
You sure as hell won't find me there.
I'll slip away, so count me out.
Prescription for a bad night - blacked out on some stranger's couch.
You sure as hell won't find me there.
I'll slip away, so count me out.
Track Name: The Cost of Comfort Pt. I
I N T E R L U D E
Track Name: See Sharply
I sit by my window and wait for the sirens.
They're all that I ever seem to hear anymore.
Everyone's outside.
They're getting into trouble, while I'm upstairs just minding my own business.

Until I thought that I saw you.
Yeah, I swear that I saw you.
I could pick you out for miles even if I were blind.
And I thought I heard your voice, but maybe it was drowned out in the noise.

What are you doing here?
I haven't seen you in a couple of years.
You've brought all your bags.
Are you moving in again?
Track Name: Machinist
If it were up to me, I'd take process over progress.
Because no matter what you do, it's the way you do it.
And I know you, and I know you best.
And I know that you can't change, even if you thought you did.

It's the hair on your pillow that isn't yours.
It's the place in your bed that was absent before.
The mistakes that you made when you know you shouldn't have.
But it's ok, you're a human and not a machine.

So tell me what direction you're heading.
I know it's hard to find your way back again.
I want to save you, but only if you let me in.

I'm sick of all the empty space that's abundant in my hands.
I've tried so long to justify this cut, but I never will.
No one ever will.

So tell me what direction you're heading.
I know it's hard to find your way back again.
I want to save you, but only if you let me in.

It's hard to find comfort in discomforting things, but that's exactly what you made me do.
Track Name: Words With a Mummy
Did I stand a chance to cross your mind again or did I stay crossed off your list?
Have I been reduced to just a memory?
A painted picture hung in your gallery that no one comes to see.

I'm done.
I'm finally over it.
The sirens are calling me back.
I thought I heard your voice, but it turned out to be a lie.

All these memories stored in boxes and envelopes
in desks and under beds now that there's definite closer.
And with that I'm saying.
With that I'm saying.

I'm done.
I'm finally over it.
The sirens are calling me back.
I thought I heard your voice, but it turned out to be a lie.
It must've been somebody else.
All I know that it wasn't you.
I'm done.
I'm finally over it.
The sirens are calling me back.

I'm your greatest work of art.
I'm your greatest piece.
You're an artist in my head and your palette's filled with
blood from the cut you dealt, but now it's run dry
and your gallery's on display
and now I'm done with you.

I'm officially over it.
The sirens are calling me back.
I thought I heard your voice, but it turned out to be a lie.
It must've been somebody else.
All I know that it wasn't you.
I'm done.
I'm finally over it.
The sirens are calling me back.

I'm done with it.
You're done with me.
I'm done with it.
You're done with me.

I'm done with it.
