Track Name: Disguise
You only ever uttered words
you thought they wanted you to say
Duplicity used as a shield for a broken heart

Was it with best intentions or
just selfishness that led you here?
So much is lost when we only act out of fear

It must have been easier for you
when you were never there

I never learned who you were past the lies
You, the one I knew was only a disguise

You couldn't trust and now that
coin has flipped it's worn down face on you
Deceit is a poison that can corrupt any truth

Is there anyone out there who knows just how you feel?
Do you even know what parts of you are real?

But it must have been easier for you
When you were never theirs

I never learned who you were past the lies
You, the one I knew was only a disguise
Track Name: Again
You live your life so fast
you're not turning back
you're just going home

Heaven ain't what you heard
it's just the memories burning
calling you back home

All those God damn choices
now's the time to fight it
All those broken feelings
now's the time to rewrite it

You're looking to the east where
all your dreams were incomplete
If you're honest with yourself
could you live that life again?

Where every day was wasted
one turned into the next
You were headin' nowhere fast
now you're going there again

All those God damn choices
now's the time to fight it
All those broken feelings
now's the time to rewrite it
Track Name: You Can't Control a Life
You built a wall to keep her here
constructed to assuage your fears
The greatest treasure you have found
you've locked it up beneath the ground

Could you learn to trust
if you just knew
That you only lose
what you cling to

Will you be held accountable?
You smothered what was beautiful
You'll never learn to fill this void
or appreciate all you've destroyed
You can't control a life.

This jealousy that you're made of
betrayed the one you claim to love
You turned her into property
You're ruled by insecurity

Could you learn to trust
if you just knew
That you only lose
what you cling to

Will you be held accountable?
You smothered what was beautiful
You'll never learn to fill this void
or appreciate all you've destroyed
You can't control a life.
