Track Name: Grey
You got the life you wanted, I got the life soaked in grey
You got the girl you wanted, I watched you slowly walk away

I see faces, faces, everywhere
But not a drop, not a drop, not a drop

Already five in the morning, and this city’s up to no good
Don’t want to see you, but everything in me says I should
I’m tired of playing a cameo in my own life
These uncertainties are eating me alive

I see faces, faces, everywhere
But not a drop, not a drop, not a drop
I see faces, faces, everywhere
But not a drop, not a drop, not a drop

Who was I to think we were strong enough to make a stand
We’ve nothing to show for the night but stamp-covered hands
Who was I to think you were strong enough to make a stand
You’ve nothing to show for the night but stamp-covered hands

You got the life you wanted, I got the life soaked in grey
You got the girl you wanted, I watched you slowly walk away

I see faces, faces, everywhere
But not a drop, not a drop, not a drop
I see faces, faces, everywhere
But not a drop, not a drop, not a drop
Track Name: Imitate Her Love
Neon parking sign, blinking on an autumn night
Above a man in the fight of his life
Boxing her ghosts on an abandoned city street
Fighting my heart, the heart that beats

You want me to, you need me to
Imitate her love
No I can’t imitate her love
I can feel you sculpting me to be somebody else
But I can’t imitate her love

I’m his mockingbird, tracing this love with words
Going through her motions, through her lines
Grasping onto memories, molding them into new dreams
Nostalgic for a life he’ll never lead

He wants me to, he needs me to
Imitate her love
No I can’t imitate her love
I can feel him sculpting me to be somebody else
But I can’t imitate her love

No I won’t imitate her love
No I won’t imitate her love
I can feel him sculpting me to be somebody else
But I won’t imitate her love
Track Name: Love Lost
Say no more, say no less
Your eyes have already confessed
This love is gone
Speak your heart, speak your peace
We both need this release
To pack up and move on

The windows are open wide, our fates foretold
Cast these demons out before they take hold
This love that once burned hot has withered cold
Cast these demons out before they take hold

Say no more, say no less
Your eyes have already confessed
This love is gone
Speak your heart, speak your peace
We both need this release
To pack up and move on

The windows are open wide, our foretold
Cast these demons out before they take hold

Say no more, say no less
Your eyes have already confessed
This love is gone
Speak your heart, speak your peace
We both need this release
To pack up and move on
Track Name: Primacy
Driving into the fog, in search of something to call our own
Away from the constant feeling of being alone
To build a legacy with our bare hands
To forge a connection with this downtrodden land
So that someday we can tell them

Brick by brick we built this empire
Brick by brick we’re taking it down
Brick by brick we built this empire
Brick by brick we’re taking it down

Arms stretched out over the water
We’ve become the rebel sons and daughters
Moving with no end in sight
Ready to put up a fight
So that someday we can tell them

Brick by brick we built this empire
Brick by brick we’re taking it down
Brick by brick we built this empire
Brick by brick we’re taking it down

We were the first to love
We were the first to break
We were the first to shed these tears
And to live these myths we made

Brick by brick by brick...
Brick by brick we built this empire
Brick by brick we’re taking it down
Brick by brick we built this empire
Brick by brick we’re taking it down
Track Name: Pursuit Of
Take me to the place where mountains meet
They say the stories buried there run deep
Past the canyon gorge and frozen river
We’ll wake the sacred answers from their sleep

They’ll say ‘Oh, life is short, but life is sweet’
So while we’re here, let’s feel its heat

With the wind in your eyes you carry on
Seeking shelter from the storm you wait for dawn
A notch for every kiss, for every lie
Your heart is full of notches, but what kind?

Life is short, but life is sweet
So while we’re here, let’s feel its heat
Life is short, but life is sweet
So while we’re here, let’s feel its heat

Ohhhhhhhhh
You break up my sleepless nights
A flash so blinding white
You break up my sleepless nights
A flash so blinding white

Life is short, but life is sweet
So while we’re here, let’s feel its heat
Life is short, but life is sweet
So while we’re here, let’s feel its heat
