Track Name: This Misfortune
Keep me safe
Oh soldier, keep me warm
I've been misled a thousand times before

Through the rain, across the southern states
I've drawn a line I wish I could ignore

Lay back down
The dirt upon your brow is a barricade
and I'm the screaming crowd

Breathing slows
I'm silent cause I know I've played the part
And now the curtain's closed

And maybe if she sang with more than her body, they would listen with their hearts
She falls short of every dream she once had, fleeting one by one from this misfortune

Used to play and weave through every day along the path of ageless beauty
I came here, saw new amounts of fear through the doors of desperation

And maybe if she sang with more than her body, they would listen with their hearts
She falls short of every dream she once had, fleeting one by one from this misfortune

Scared to reconcile, I'll sit here for a while
…every inch of this bed has held my head.

And maybe if she sang with more than her body, they would listen with their hearts
She falls so short of every dream she once had, fleeting one by one from this misfortune
Track Name: Elegy
I must go back to where I've known
I need to cover my tracks since I have grown

Oh I haven't been myself since the currents changed, sweeping you away

Gotta get myself back to the place I met you
And I feel your ghost in mirrors I'm staring through

Search for what's lost on every shore
I'm left combing the sand
Pieces a drift the ocean floor

Haven't been myself since the currents changed sweeping you away

Gotta get myself back to the place I met you
And I feel your ghost in mirrors I'm staring through
Track Name: Life In Ruin
I don't know where you disappear to in the night all alone
Have you lost all you know? Befriending sorrow, every night on your own

And you're forcing yourself down, diving face first toward the ground,
Leaving all your friends to wonder

I ask how you're doin', but I don't have a clue
Your life is in ruin, and mine is in plain view

Reflections echo through a canyon
Words wither, harbored in the void of your room every night

And you're beating yourself down, chasing every fear around,
Keeping all your secrets under

I ask how you're doin', but I don't have a clue
Your life is in ruin, and mine is in plain view

We watch your world crumble down
We watch your world crumble down

Hairline fractures through the main that we once knew
We watch your world crumble down

And you're losing what you've found, chasing every fear around, leaving all your friends so hopelessly to wonder

I ask how you're doin', but I don't have a clue
Your life is in ruin, and mine is in plain view

Your life is in ruin and mine is in plain view
