Arthur is dead/camelot, ashes/but they still live

in your head x2
Track Name: The Last Song I Will Ever Write For You
i am/a laid back guy/do my best/ let most things slide (except)

why is she so far away?/why does this still cause me pain?

had a chat/with that girl yesterday/she said i was strange/i said ok/ i see no point/in trying to hide/after all I'm a laid back guy

why is she so far away?/why does this still cause me pain?

i am/a laid back guy/do my best/ let most things slide/she is not and it makes me want to hide

why is she so far away?/why does this still cause me pain?
Track Name: Theme For The Substandard Wish Club
what do you see when you close your eyes
How do you keep from screaming?
Why should I care if you don't?
Why should I quit if you won't?
Why should I care if you don't?
Why should I quit if you won't?

Remember when everything was beautiful?
Remember when no one was dead
Welcome to the Substandard Wish Club
Your room is always ready
Welcome to the Substandard Wish Club
Your room is almost ready

everything will be for naught if you don't keep your body breathing
everything will be for naught better keep your body breathing
everything will be for naught I hope you keep your body breathing
everything is for naught if you don't keep your body breathing

What do you see when you close your eyes
How do you keep from screaming?
You tell me I'm supposed to care
but I don't believe in you
You tell me I'm supposed to care
but I don't believe you
Why should I care if you don't?
Why should I quit if you won't?

Track Name: Carve These Words
carve these words into the sand
help is on the way
carve these words into your chest
i will remember you
carve these words into your arms
there is no way out

strike across the sky
no prediction
no reason why
just when you think the rains about to stop
clouds open and she doubles down

live throug the fear
thats what keeps me here
gotta let the smoke settle
use a mirror to show what we can already see
i can see your bones
how are you smiling?

carve these words into the sand
help is on the way
carve these words into your chest
i will remember you
carve these words into your arms
there is no way out
Track Name: I Still Don't Know (How To Deal) (II of III)
inside of my head/there is nothing left/there once where thoughts/there once where songs

long gone/nothing left/only silence

i still don't know/how to deal/with the silence/the numbness/the hollowness/inside my head

long gone/nothing left/only silence
long gone/nothing left/only silence/remains
Track Name: There's No Salvation (III of III)
i used to think/this would save me/but now i know/there's no salvation

i used to think/that you loved me/but now i know/i'll die alone

only do i realize/you never were real/only do i learn/we were each others ghosts

it was thundering/when i awoke/i was alone/like i always am

the rain has stopped/the sun has risen/but for now/clouds refuse to part
