Track Name: Anything That Affects Anything
no sun
allowed in my room
but it's still hot as hell and i'm in it
something is missing
but no
everything is here
right where i left it all
i didn't know what i was thinking when i spoke to you

said i saw you in a dream
said please don't do this to me

well i know the words i said that night
but it's not what i meant when i said it
what i meant was
it's hard to concentrate on your musings when anything's affecting anything
Track Name: The Truth Is Not True
i'll pave over all
the cracks in the sidewalk
the ones that make you fall
and make you trip
i want to show you all
the posters on my wall
and tell you all i know
if you give a shit

when i think about you sometimes
i wonder what you think about
you don't seem to care what i think
your anything affects my everything

what once seemed temporary
now seems permanent
i can't stop it and it
seems that what i once knew to be truth is not true
you are the proof
Track Name: Time Warp
i'll see you in a second
i'm coming home
last time
was quick
if there's anything i reckon
it's that i know
how you feel
no tricks
you're looking out your window
watching roads
speed by
lightspeed
don't wanna be a hero
i never do
it's not me

there's strength in dealing with the strains of who you are
i know it's hard
losing faith and raising all the stakes won't get you far

now we don't really talk much
don't wanna fill
dead air
with fake words
every passing second
is feeling still
time warp

you're the same as when you're feeling sane
i know you are
you're raising the bar
so just say the things you want to say
don't think too hard

it's temporary
obviously
don't feel sorry

there's strength in dealing with the strains of who you are
i know it's hard
losing faith and raising all the stakes won't get you far
no it won't get you far
Track Name: Hell Pt. 1
who am i to decide
what is wrong and what is right
it's not my job
but it's not yours
and i'm not sure anymore
if you can do what you want
when you want
it might not be the best choice you have
but who am i to tell you that

hell is just heaven for all of the sinners
and you're going to heaven

you don't have to confess
what you don't think you can
you can do what you want
at any time with any thought
so if you think of anything you want to say
think again
any thought, good or bad
belongs to you
but you know that

hell is just heaven if you don't like the cold
and you lost possession of all your winter coats
hell is just heaven for all of the sinners
and you're going to heaven
Track Name: The Parts Of The Sum
i'll keep to myself
'cause i just can't watch
it's keeping me up
if anyone else
needs someone to know
the things that they know
i'm not offering
i know it and how
i'm alone in this house
but at the corner of my eye
to my surprise
i thought i saw a face
accompanied by a crash
it disappeared in a flash

does anyone need anyone
or am i just off the mark
i'm thinking of the parts of the sum
that led to this and recounting them

i ran up the stairs and hid in my room
i don't want to know what it is actually
ignorance is this
but this isn't bliss
now i'm sure of it
i thought i heard a voice
coming from the hall
but there's no one at all
i'm losing it
the sum of the parts
the whole of the half
the rest of what's left

and the sound traveled through the cracks
in between my floor and door
and found it's way to my ears
and found it's way to my core

the more i try to think about it
it doesn't make any sense
and there is no reason for it
the more i search around for answers
they just become questions again
and there is no reason for it

the sun came in through the cracks
in between my shades and blinds
and found it's way to my room
and found it's way to my eyes

and it went through the lens
and went in my brain
it's a loss and a gain
and it's image is burned
into my retinas
and the light of the sun
is an afterimage
the light of the sun
the bright and the dull
the dark in my soul
i'm losing it
the sum and the parts
the light and the dark
will be what they are

the sound traveled through the cracks
in between my floor and door
and found it's way to my ears
and found it's way to my core
does anyone
need anyone
or am i just
off the mark
i'm thinking of
the parts of the sum
that led to this
and recounting them
Track Name: The Name Of The Game
it's impossible, or at least hard to forget
what you can't remember
it is out of your head
and out of your hands
they're closed tight in our lap
have thumb wars with yourself
thinking you've been here before while reading the ads and maps

and their lines are intersecting
but don't cross each other's paths
and we pray they never crash

seconds change
to minutes change
to hours change
can't get thoughts to rearrange

it's deja vu
with your headphones on
you've been through this before
i hope you hear my voice come through in stereo

i'll claw out from the inside
like you don't wanna know
like you don't wanna know

it's the name of the game
waiting for what you know
it's a shame either way
you won't know what i know

you can just ignore
all the things you don't like
sweep them under the rug
i know that you're thinking of burying me deep below

but i'll claw out from the inside
like you don't wanna know
like you don't wanna know
