Track Name: Almost August
it's been a lonely summer
and i don't want to be here
but it follows you
you can't escape i fear

i miss you but you know that
it's not my place to say
i've waited for you to come around
but it seems so far away

carry me as i die
wither away to nothing
Track Name: Jade
disregard your friends
hold hands with the phantoms
you claim to haunt your room

ignore your lover
he doesn't really care
he just wants what you got

are you feeling dead
or half alive at best?
but you won't call for help

hold us as we freeze
bleed us while we hold
hold on the telephone
Track Name: Ha Ra (demo)
lose a fight against yourself
place the pain upon the shelf
nothing gets you more down than
to beat yourself over again

jump a chainlink fence to see
everything in front me
new perspective, other side
from the beach watch all the tides

feelin big despite your loss
delusion put you on the cross
did you die for our sins?
have you news of the end?

burn the sheets that you slept in
curb your edge with sufferin
brighter skies make dimmer eyes
clever lies in plain disguise

my friends are all long dead
in their own way or in my head
put myself in harms way
just to make you feel okay

mission fail start again
this life can't be worth livin
live to see another day
wish that i was KIA
