Track Name: Deadweight
Deadweight ghost
That haunt me from sleep
All of your noise
Seems to bury me

In a grave that I dug
When I was young and naive
I filled it up
With every deadweight dream
Track Name: There Was Water
A cold drowns my head
as the sun cuts the water
A breath of life remains
while the beating of my heart stops

Your bones shine on
Lift me up again
In your hope is my home
Lift me up again

Relapsing, such tragedy
when we burn out all the embers
we lit when we were younger
Relapsing, oh I know
is the devil in our little hells
Pushing us down to the wishing well

There was water
When what we needed was gasoline
Our candles are burning out
If there's a time to say
enough is enough
Well, I've had enough

(Repeat chorus)
Track Name: Patron Saints
Settle for a matchstick
while you wait for the sun to come
It's almost like the windows were painted on
Won't the angels sing us a song tonight
'cause I'm not sure if we'll make it out alive

From this empty house
We sent it straight into that hole in the ground
Let's burn it down

Settle for a glass half full
when you get too sick of the fire
Us broken kids always need to come back home
Won't the angels sing when we die?
'cause I'm not sure if we'll make it out alive

From this empty house
We sent it straight into that hole in the ground
Let's burn it down

Nothing feels like the movies
I'm just dreaming now
Wasting days, drifting through this town
Let's burn it down

Settle for a matchstick
while you wait for the sun to come
Track Name: Nights That Keep Me Awake
Some days it knocks me off my feet
The cold blowing of the wind
And I'm shivering inside my boots
Wishing that you were here

And my mother says I sound worried every day
And it's nights like these that are keeping me awake
No strength to get out of bed
This weight is far too heavy on my chest
So I pray for rest

And I'm so far from home
Wherever that tends to be
Where I'm pierced by your little stares
Aching bones weigh me down

And my mother says I sound worried every day
But it's nights like these that are keeping me awake
No strength to get out of bed
This weight is far too heavy on my chest
So I pray for rest

You ask if I might be depressed

I wish I was invincible
and my skin was as thick as my head
I wish I was more fixable
that my heart was stronger than this

I wish my skin was as thick as my head
I wish that I had strength to get out of bed
I wish I wasn't so anxious like this
