One Pill 02:56
One pill to make you stronger One pill to wear you out One pill to make you wonder One pill to ease your doubts We’re all just trying to get by Everybody’s on their own supply Doesn’t matter what you call it if it takes you higher One pill to wake you up One pill to help you sleep One pill to hold you captive One pill to set you free We’re all just trying to get by Everybody’s on their own supply Doesn’t matter what you call it if it takes you higher We’re all just living a lie Nobody gonna ask you why Doesn’t matter what you call it if it takes you higher You’re looking in the wrong direction If you need something to find And if you keep on staring at the same reflection You might as well be blind One pill to take you farther One pill to slow you down One pill to fuel the fire One pill to burn you out One pill to take you higher One pill to break the fall One pill to feel desire One pill to feel at all

Belong 03:00
Waking up in the same old skin Maybe today I’ll finally fit in Staring back at the same old face Getting tired of feeling out of place Out of place We all want to belong We all want to belong We waste away just wondering What the hell it’s all supposed to mean We all want to belong To something Staring into the great unknown Hoping that I won’t die alone Feeling stuck in the same old town Every high feels low, every up brings me Down to the place I’m in Drowning when I’m trying to swim
 Praying to a god that I never believed in We all want to belong (Waking up in the same old skin) We all want to belong (Maybe today I’ll finally fit in) We waste away just wondering What the hell it’s all supposed to mean (Staring back at the same old face) We all want to belong (Getting tired of feeling out of place)

Timesick 03:12
You wanna dream under the sunset You wanna wake up in a world outside your head Always splitting up the difference Stop trying, stop trying I still remember what you once said Count your apologies but number your regrets If you really want to make it Read the signs, read the signs It doesn’t have to be so hard We’ve come so far Nostalgia’s got me feeling all timesick Flipping through the pages of my high school yearbook All those days dreaming in my basement Years later we’re still chasing time You’re busy counting your footsteps Looking down but all the signs point straight ahead Instead of asking “are we there yet” Take your time - take your time I still remember when we first met I think I told you that we’d sleep when we were dead You always hated when I said that, oh oh oh It doesn't have to be so hard Nostalgia’s got me feeling all timesick Flipping through the pages of my high school yearbook All those days dreaming in my basement Years later we’re still chasing time Every single second that we wasted Back when every minute was a fading moment All those days feeling impatient Years later we’re still chasing Back when we were pounding on the pavement Running full speed from the same old story
 (we've come so far) Back when we were high on expectations Diggin in our heels when the rain kept pouring (we've come so far) Back when we were in and out of phases Promising each other it would never get boring (we've come so far) Back when we were covering our bases Moving in and moving out of spaces Nostalgia’s got me feeling all timesick Flipping through the pages of my high school yearbook All those days dreaming in my basement Years later, years later Every single second that we wasted (it doesn't have to be so hard) Back when every minute was a fading moment (it doesn't have to be so hard) Still chasing, we're still chasing (it doesn't have to be so hard) We've come so far Nostalgia’s got me feeling all timesick (it doesn't have to be so hard) Flipping through the pages of my high school yearbook (it doesn't have to be so hard) All those days dreaming in my basement (it doesn't have to be so hard) Years later we’re still chasing time (we've come so far) Every single second that we wasted (it doesn't have to be so hard) Back when every minute was a fading moment (it doesn't have to be so hard) All those days feeling impatient (it doesn't have to be so hard) Years later we’re still chasing time (we've come so far)

Wait For It 03:02
I’m so sick of all the games We’ve been told we need to play these days It’s hard to catch a break Every swing feels like a miss Is anyone even listening these days? Everyone’s a flake And I’m just over it All those times they told me no You said “stop” but I heard “go” I’m still here because I’m not there yet So just wait for it I’m so done with playing nice Sick of all the same advice these days I’m done with being fake Every step feels like a fall Everybody thinks they know it all these days It’s a lot to take And I’m so over it All those times they told me no You said “stop” but I heard “go” I’m still here because I’m not there yet So just wait for it I get fired up by the doubt So don’t you worry about wearing me down I’m still here because I’m not there yet So just wait for it I’m so done with playing nice Sick of all the same advice And I’m just over it All those times they told me no You said “stop” but I heard “go” I’m still here because I’m not there yet So just wait for it I get fired up by the doubt So don’t you worry about wearing me down I’m still here because I’m not there yet So just wait for it

You always said that you would be there You’d have my back through thick and thin But when things go my way You got nothing nice to say Cause you don’t really wanna see me win You’re lost, I’m found Where are we now? You only like me when I’m down You only like me when I’m crawling on the ground So you can push me around You only like me when I’m down You only want to see me fall You only want to help me when my back’s against the wall You can say you’re a friend til the bitter end But with friends like you, who needs friends at all You can’t resist a competition Feels like you’re always keeping score A twisted game of confidence Where you feel good at my expense And I’m not playing anymore

You said you would be alright Things like this just take some time And you’re where you need to be right now You said you would be ok You just needed one more day Until you figure out exactly how Take back What you said Take back Everything Did you think it was the last time That you’d feel something Did you think it was the last time I’d come running, running Did you think it was the last time That you’d feel this way Nothing better than the last time Nothing better, better When you said that you would take it slow Did you just mean you couldn’t let it go Because you’re on a different speed right now When you said you would be just fine Did you just mean that you stopped trying Because you stopped knowing how Take back What you said Take back Everything Did you think it was the last time That you’d feel something Did you think it was the last time I’d come running, running Did you think it was the last time That you’d feel this way Nothing better than the last time Nothing better, better

Better Off 03:09
You say you’re better off without me, that the writing’s on the wall Well I've been walking on your tightrope, and you’ve been waiting for my fall You say the grass is always greener, and the water's getting cold But you got wishing well fever, and your story’s getting old Oh you think you've got me all figured out I’m not down to hold you up, that just ain’t enough I’m not in to bail you out, that’s not what I’m all about I’m getting over the hunger for the spell you put me under I just can’t wait until you’re gone - and I’m better off You say you’re better off without me and there’s nothing I can do I'm just another disappointment, you're just another point of view You say that times are changing, we’re like two ships in the night But as you fade into distance, I can finally see the light Oh you think you've got me all figured out I’m not down to hold you up, that just ain’t enough I’m not in to bail you out, that’s not what I’m all about I’m getting over the hunger for the spell you put me under I just can’t wait until you’re gone - and I’m better off I don’t need another devil on my shoulder I don’t wanna hear it over and over You ain’t listening to anything I told you I don’t need another devil on my shoulder I don’t need another goddamn saviour I don’t need another one of your favours You’re not listening to anything I say here I don’t need another goddamn saviour I’m not down to hold you up That just ain’t enough I’m not in to bail you out That’s not what I’m all about I’m getting over the hunger for the spell you put me under I'm getting tired of the lying, the truth you've been denying I’m getting sick of the choosing, the game I keep on losing I just can’t wait until you’re gone …. and I’m better off I don’t need another devil on my shoulder (I'm better off) I don’t wanna hear it over and over (I'm better off) You ain’t listening to anything I told you (I'm better off) I don’t need another devil on my shoulder (I'm better off) I don’t need another goddamn saviour (I'm better off) I don’t need another one of your favours (I'm better off) You’re not listening to anything I say here (I'm better off) I don’t need another goddamn saviour (I'm better off)

I can see it in your eyes I’m not getting through to you You read between the lines But the words on the page are already true I’ve tried a thousand times There’s nothing else that I can do I’ve tried a thousand times But there’s no getting through to you Can you tell me you don’t understand Why I feel the way, that I have to We’re chasing the past by candlelight Holding onto moments that we’ll never find Waving matches in the wind just to catch a spark Cause we’ll do anything to see our footsteps in the dark Can you help me understand Why you lie the way you do See I don’t give a damn I just want to hear the truth Can you tell me you don’t understand Why I feel the way, that I have to Can you tell me you don’t feel it too Ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh We’re chasing the past by candlelight Holding onto moments that we’ll never find Waving matches in the wind just to catch a spark Cause we’ll do anything to see our footsteps in the dark We’re tracing our path by holding tight Reaching out for branches that we’ve left behind Waving matches in the wind just to catch a spark Cause we’ll do anything to see our footsteps in the dark I can see you in a light that’s blinding In the corners where you think you’re hiding Looking for something that doesn’t need finding Cause you’re just too busy rewinding We’re chasing the past by candlelight Holding onto moments that we’ll never find Waving matches in the wind just to catch a spark Cause we’ll do anything to see our footsteps in the dark We’re tracing our path by holding tight (our footsteps in the dark) Reaching out for branches that we’ve left behind (our footsteps in the dark) Waving matches in the wind just to catch a spark (our footsteps in the dark) Cause we’ll do anything to see our footsteps in the dark
