Track Name: Rebuild You
Walk down the long hallway to get to your room
I was the first to arrive, I’ll be the last to leave you
The doctor said you were barely alive
But the girl I know never gave up a fight
So call ‘em off if they’re preparing last rites
I’ll care for you
I’ll be there holding your hand through the cold

Stayed up thinking about the meaningless things
We took too much to heart
That silently built up and pushed us further apart
I admit it baby, I’ll take all the blame
If you just wake up I promise everything’s gonna change
Cuz through it all I’ve still loved you the same
I’m scared for you
And I need to know that you’re gonna be ok

I’m not walking away
From our love
Its in my veins in my blood, its in my soul
I'm not walking away
From our love
It's unconditional

Your pulse, your breath, the heart in your chest
Your pulse, your breath, the heart in your chest
Your pulse, your breath, the heart in your chest
Keep pushing the poison away
Then find a reason and gather the strength
To rebuild you
And hold your head above all the mistakes

I’m not walking away
From our love
Its in my veins in my blood, its in my soul
I'm not walking away
From our love
It's unconditional
Track Name: The Tether
I'll give up all I have
To give us a better chance
I've stopped trying to be something I'm not
We'll learn how to stand
On our own feet again
And sacrifice convenience for a change

Tied to an imitation of
Something I loved but with the heart and soul removed
Now I'm severing the tether and I'm coming back to you

Let our hair grow wild and long
Pull our food straight from the ground
Cut off all the reins that hold us back
Raise up our soiled hands 
To embrace and defend our friends
Some kind of judgement levels every man 

Tied to an imitation of
Something I loved but with the heart and soul removed
Now I'm severing the tether and I'm coming back to you 
I was sick before
My guts were full of toxic chemicals 
But now I'm severing the tether and I'm coming back to you
Track Name: Hearts of Crows
It started coming apart slowly
Like crows picking at the seams
The shadow I once cast on the ground
Began seeping into me
It had me talking backwards
Doubting all that I believed
How could I keep faith in those things
With the abyss in front of me?

Silhouette in black
Feeding on the hearts of crows
Moving in shadows
No reflection shows
I just can't give you what you're asking me for anymore
So I'm feeding on rats and feeding on the hearts of crows

You discovered it piece by piece
the trail of bones that I would leave
While I was creepin' 'round dark corridors
Derelict and drowned in cruel desire
It put out the last fire I had inside
And without that light
There was no place inside your heart left to reside

Silhouette in black
Feeding on the hearts of crows
Moving in shadows
No reflection shows
I just can't give you what you're asking me for anymore
So I'm feeding on rats and feeding on the hearts of crows

I'm not yet a feral soul
But I'm scared I could lose control
At any moment, with anyone
Under the sun I'm cold
But at night when the moon is full
I dream I am drinking your blood

You discovered it piece by piece
The trail of bones that I would leave
While I was creepin' 'round dark corridors...

Silhouette in black
Feeding on the hearts of crows
Moving in shadows
No reflection shows
I just can't give you what you're asking me for anymore
So I'm feeding on rats and feeding on the hearts of crows
Track Name: We Get By
It breaks us down it makes us tired
Working and working
After a while it's hard to see which side of the line we're on
We sacrifice another life
Weekend to weekend
Just killing time before the dawn breaks in through the night

But we get by

I can't see it
I can't- It's invisible to me
Working so hard, not seeing
More than we had before

Yet through this struggle we survive
Season to season
Patiently waiting for the star above to align
Our hearts are full and satisfied
Beating and beating
Make do with what we've got, and grateful for every breath

But we get by

I can't see it
I can't- It's invisible to me
Working so hard, not seeing
More than we had before

We get by
