Track Name: The Smell of Rain
I am entering darker days
The kind that last forever
Not even the brightest light I can see
when mere inches right in front of me

Saying sorry doesn't wash my hands
It just masks the regret
And I accept that I've done wrong
But I expect no forgiveness
So I swear to God I'm not a liar
I'm just a coward with a smile
Track Name: Borrowed Time
There are no happy endings
In a world smothered with grey
We say the things we mean
And watch them float away

I'm living on borrowed time
Siphoned from the pool of death I bathe in
So let me lie with the devil one more time
And trick myself with thoughts
That I will never die

I've never lived a day where I felt free
I'd like to see it differently
I have no reason not to lose my head
Cause you said
You said
You said we could be different

(You said
You said we could be different)

You ran you ran but she calls you back again
A succubus, she's rooted inside of your head
"Stop whenever you like" she said
"We can stop whenever you like"
I don't ever want to stop
I can't stop

I can only muster the strength to say this once
I lied to myself
Because I can't handle the truth

I've never lived a day where I've felt free
I'd like to see it differently
I have no reason not to lose my head
Cause you said
You said
You said we could be different

I've never lived a day where I've felt free
I'd like to see it differently
I have no reason not to lose my head
Cause you said
You said
You said I would be different
