Realign 02:57
A process of excess That was never supposed to be A choice that would subside Until the day that we collide Maybe you and I could realign Call this a situation The fall from elation Expected for sure, you’ll agree I’m tied, like a ring ‘round your finger It’s needless to say that You’ve had your way with me But how hard could that be? A process of excess That was never supposed to be A choice that would subside Until the day that we collide Maybe you and I could realign I feel like my hands are tied As I stare at 2:30 AM in the eyes Forgive me to hang on the words off your lips Just know that I’ve had quite the history with this I’d love just to spill but, oh, where would I start? I’m an expert to show someone tore me apart So, trust me, there’s space in my heart A process of excess That was never supposed to be A choice that would subside Until the day that we collide Maybe you and I could realign It’s hard to keep myself in line When my thoughts race me all the time And I try, I try, to steal your kiss But I’m just not built to handle this I’ve known you short but oh, so sweet When we graced the nights in summer heat I can’t sit tight, no, never here The same room I once held you near I’ve failed before and I’ll fail again As I spill my ink and snap my pen If I’d wake up now, I’d hope to find Our paths had somehow realigned Wake up, wake up, maybe we could realign Wake up, wake up, maybe we could realign Help me find it, help me find it Maybe you and I could realign

Capsized 03:48
I heard the Hudson River screaming When I finally hit the ground I count the beats of my own heart Because no one else will make a sound I got to get out of here It turns out I can’t stand it after all While you’re trying to tear me down And lift yourself above me as I fall Don’t say hold steady now The act is tired, my patience’s growing old But here comes that wave again The one that sweeps right through And swallows me whole Go speak mind and call me a loner Just know someday you’ll say I showed you Capsized, I’m turning over I’ll find my great escape I’d try to run but it’s not worth it So I just tread and hold this in How hard it is to keep my temper And water underneath my chin You’ll swear it’s obvious Why people cut my throat and I should see Then I’m sure I’ll figure out the reasons For all these holes you’ve cut in me And here comes that wave again To sweep right through And swallow me whole Go speak mind and call me a loner Just know someday you’ll say I showed you Capsized, I’m turning over I’ll find my great escape I can’t help feel that I’m still sinking Though I should feel worlds apart It’s no surrender ‘til the end Or when this wave comes in And swallows me whole Go speak mind and call me a loner Just know someday you’ll say I showed you Capsized, I’m turning over I’ll find my great escape

Anchors 03:11
I heard an empty sound on the radio today It took the place of all those things you used to say I’m just the optimist while we sit here wasting words I say it every time, but maybe that’s the last we’ve ever heard Shout, shout! The whole room spins and people won’t let go Why we live so anchored down, I swear I’ll never know You could be my rock And I’d keep you anchored to the floor At once, I thought I missed you Now I couldn’t need you more Can you save me? Would you save me? After everything, would you still stay And save me, be my anchor after all? Now we’re right back where we started way back when But time passes by the people that we’ve been since then At night, the highway burns an auburn shade of red A sky filled with everything I had the chance and know I should have said Take, take a part of me that I know isn’t real Why we live so anchored down, I swear that I can’t deal You could be my rock And I’d keep you anchored to the floor At once, I thought I missed you Now I couldn’t need you more Can you save me? Would you save me? After everything, would you still stay And save me, be my anchor after all? You could be my rock And I’d keep you anchored to the floor At once, I thought I missed you Now I couldn’t need you more Can you save me? Would you save me? After everything, would you still stay And save me, be my anchor after all? After all, can you save me, would you save me? After everything, my anchor after all After all, can you save me, would you save me? After everything, my anchor after all…
