Track Name: Bounded In A Nutshell (Call Me Crazy)
You were a diamond in a quarry
Delicately handled by weary hands

You were a diamond in a quarry
Fixed into metal to be worn by someone who isn't me

Call me crazy, just don't call me sweetheart

You were a diamond in the quarry
Shining bright, a white light against the rock

You were a diamond in the quarry
Smashed by steel rods into a piece of coal

So call me crazy, just don't call me sweetheart

A burning moon is setting in your lungs
The fire's burning through your eyes
Bleeding into the dark

You were a diamond in the quarry
But those days are gone, you left them out in the cold

You were diamond in the quarry
Slipping down the slope, that leads back to living alone

So call me crazy, just don't call me sweetheart

A burning moon is setting in your lungs
The fires burning through your eyes
Bleeding into the dark

So call me crazy
Call me crazy
Call me crazy
Just don't call me sweetheart

I tried to lose myself clawing my way to hell
Kicking and screaming to get your attention
I tried to lose myself crawling back up from hell
Pulling my feet but they're anchored into the ground

Color me
Color me blind
Color me
Color me crazy...for you
Track Name: My Directional
I’m on my feet and on the street
And she’s making her connection as we speak
But all my points they go no-

Where are you now
Missing out again
(Where) are you now
You’re missing out again, missing out again
Missing out

So sweetly she said to me
“I finally made it back here, safe and sound
I miss you, I’ll see you when I come back down”

(Where) are you now
Missing out again
(Where) Are you now
Missing out again, missing out again
Missing out

I can’t tell which way,
I can’t tell which way is up from here

But you would know wouldn’t you
It’d be much like second nature to know, wouldn’t you
It'd be so much easier tonight

Come back down, come back down
Come back down, I’ll be waiting
Come back down, come back down
Come back down, come back!

I can’t wait for the day when it comes to me again
I can’t wait
Track Name: Walking Dead
Midnight rain fall as if you miss me
I wouldn’t mind if you drowned out all these city lights
In colors blue and cold tonight
I’m falling apart but it seems I’m not alone...

Walking out again as if there’s nowhere else for me
I’m like the dead, but tonight I’m living well

Now life here seems so much like a mystery
Even though I’ve got you closer than you’d like to be
Living now feels strange to me
I’m falling apart at the seams where blood and bone…

Walking out again as if there’s nowhere else for me
I’m like the dead, but tonight I’m living less like you

There’s no air breathing, there’s no blood flowing
I’m dying to be next to you
There’s no air breathing, there’s no blood flowing
I’m rising from the dead to you

I’m rising, I’m rising
I’m rising from the dead to you
I’m rising, I’m rising
I’m rising from the dead to you
Track Name: Alice
Keep your smile to yourself
I buried mine in my backyard
I tore it off my face and covered it in tar

Broke my fingers catching colds
Dirty leaves are leaving scars
Beneath this bridge the water's gone
There's only dirt

So, I'll be waiting at the gallows

Off, off, off with your head
I must confess I'd rather see you dead
Than let you snake your way into my life again

Off, off, off with your head
I must confess I'd rather see you dead
Than bear the sight of you alive and well again

Sunlight shivers off your clothes
Dry lips now aching to extol
The taste of ink from words you've etched into my bones

Carve a socket for your soul
Upon the bench with arms that fold
But you can't kill the voice that's pressing through your skull

So, I'll be waiting at the gallows

Off, off, off with your head
I must cofess I'd rather see you dead
Than let you snake your way into my life again

Off, off, off with your head
I must confess I'd rather see you dead
Than bear the sight of you alive and well again
