Track Name: Surrounded
drop the feeling on the floor
forget it, uhuh
just tell me a little more
surrounded, uhuh

can you even hear my voice?
so crowded
you didn't give me a choice
where were you?

feeling something
on the inside
Track Name: All The Things
drive me back to our hometown
you might have to hold me down
I'm cryin out for you
yeah i love the shit you do
it's true it's true it's true

wipe the lie from my mouth, suck it up spit it out
gonna tell you the truth, gonna say i need you
i've been fallin for years, now im keepin you here
til the day that you die, i will never say bye

i wanna crawl up next to you
i wanna kiss you on the roof
tell me all about your day
yeah i love the shit you say
come here, dont go, just stay

all the things that we did, remember when we were kids?
all the stories i tell, everything that i felt
i've been feeling for years, now im keeping you here
til the day that you die, i will never say bye

all the things
that i felt
Track Name: When Is Enough?
going away, keeping me grounded
did i hear you say that you won't allow it?
i make a noise, so you can find me
this wasn't my choice, you don't believe me

every time i wait for you my fear is lit up by the moon

when is enough?
Track Name: How Come
how come
every time you hold on you drag me down a little bit to you?
so what
if i said the wrong thing? i was just repeating it back to you

what's the difference i'm just like you
this is useless i'm just like you
Track Name: Circuit
Finding you when I thought I found control
what's the use in taking things slow?
i know how this goes
i know how this goes

i thought
i might
stand a chance
but now i
hold tight

comin up real fast
i think im ready
as i'll ever be
never did like waiting
jump into you
everything is changing
nothing i can do
i think im ready
Track Name: I Do It Back
Are you here yet?
I wait for years
did you forget
that i'm still here?

you push and shove me
til i fall flat
but i can't be angry
i do it back

what are we now?
you show me how to fight
and i try
yeah i do it back
Track Name: Permanent
hanging on to a dream i had
where you came back to life
where you knocked on my door
then you told me it was a joke
and i laughed
because you weren't dead anymore

oh, mark
good grief
how could
you leave me?
Track Name: With You
pick your poison
turn off the radio
bite my shoulder
because i said so
drive on the highway
you go too fast

so what
i thought
i could
do it
with you
Track Name: When I See You
When i see you
i'm gonna eat you up
i'm gonna scream your name
i dont give a fuck

when you get home
im gonna keep you to myself
i wont share with no one
fuck everyone else

how can i
even say?
never thought
i'd feel this way

what can i
even do
i wanna show
this love to you
Track Name: Overflow
my big bad luck
picks my words apart
and my big bad love
spills over the top

and in time i will grow
i'll catch it all
and in time i will grow
i'll catch it all before it overflows
