Track Name: Edge of the Earth
I fled my regiment
to inventory worth
Laid down my arms at the cliffs of chance
for a notion of romance
Fallin' from the edge of the earth

Sinking like my heart
when she says, I don't what's worse
than giving up the lucid years
to watch them disappear
Fallin' from the edge of the earth

Fallin' from the edge of the earth

I watched one season for too long
A witness to the horrors of wanting somethin' gone
A witness to the world you're waiting on

So how can I describe
the feeling of rebirth?
It's in the darkest of your nights
like a flash of light
fallin' from the edge of the earth

Casting off the bonds of compromise
to go and find the ice
that's falling from the edge of the earth
The ice is falling from the edge of the earth
Track Name: Some People
Remember when it used to feel like I was hardly ever at home?
remember when you used to feel like you were always alone?
you made the decision to make an incision and cut me down to the bone

I know it was your suspicion that I was untrue
but take a look at the mirror, darlin', that person was you
it hurt at the time, but then it felt fine, when I met her and left you behind
oh, I left you behind.

But these days to me they operate entirely differently.
I grew up, wised up, cleaned up and moved up, but you still insist on calling me
so now it's time to make the final blow I'm gonna put an old dog our of her misery

So i aint calling you back, no sympathy from this party
and I aint cutting you slack, and I don't need any of your pity
those lashes on my spine they healed up just fine, when I met her and left you behind.
oh, I left you behind

Some people will tell you they need when they move on, move on, move on, move on
Some people will try and deceive you when they hold on.
Some people wanna have their cake and want to eat it too
some eat it as there walking away from you.
and walk away.
Track Name: Further From Home
Sudden death, sorry I'm so late
I took for granted every day before today

Now I can't count the ones that got away
The words that seemed insane
And I don't think I'll ever be the same

After the exodus and the love you leave behind
One pearl of early wisdom to remind
You know that thing you said on our last night together
That thing you said about forever

Now I can't count the words that got away
The ones I couldn't say
And I don't think I'll ever be the same
The further I got from home
The smaller my world became
And I don't think I'll ever be the same

I don't think I'll ever be the same

One kiss goodnight, but I always want one more
Can you explain how the moon's bigger than before
Is it the tides' refraction of the light
Or could it be that I just ain't that bright

'Cause I can't recall the words I said last night
But I'll take all the blame
And I don't think I'll ever be the same
The further I get from home
The smaller my world remains
And I don't think I'll ever be the same

I don't think I'll ever be the same
Track Name: Warning Signs
Can you hear my call
from outside your city walls?
I'm waiting for the gates to fall and let me inside

Crawling on all fours
I'm crippled with a rotten core
But don't think I don't adore your darker side

I couldn't find the time to save my life
But you could make things right
Just disregard the warning signs

You rattle my bones
when you put on the heart of stone
Beside you all alone is a sad refrain

When all the lights are out
I'll soften my self doubt
'Cause this wouldn't be love without just a little bit of pain

I'll never find the time to save my life
Unless you hook your heart to mine
and disregard the warning signs

Disregard the warning signs
Disregard the warning signs
Turn your attention to my honest eyes
and hook your heart to mine
