Track Name: Collapse Song I (The Dreamer)
All the dreams you build
Will one day collapse
Gravity will always win

But some dreams you'll throw
Like hand grenades
Keep the pin

Just to hold onto something....
Track Name: Collapse Song II (The Painter)
Lost the war, a silent screaming rage
Alone, a lone word on a page
Tears took a while to fall, not worth the cost
Mourn not what's lost
Your canvas torn and frayed

Common law collapsing on the stage
Recalling all your past mistakes

Walk out of a life I tore apart
Gave my all but my all destroyed my art
Paint over a scene of what once was,
You miss a spot...
"Yes I was afraid"

Common law collapsing on the stage
Recalling all your past mistakes
Dead weight of a decade up in flames
Cover up the past with paint

You paint a lie
Repaint a life
Repaint a lie
You paint a life

Common law collapsing on the stage
Recalling all your past mistakes
Dead weight of a decade up in flames
Cover up the past with paint
Track Name: Rebuilding
Hey, by the way
A simple lesson
Do it for the often lost
Who scream at night
The shades don't block out all the light

Late at night
At center stage
You get wasted
And don a new disguise
Am I half right
To take it away?

Day by day
Falls away
Day by day
I rebuild my heart
But I
Think it's gone away
Away
I think it's gone away

It's such a simple lesson:
You will wake up alone in a cold fright
Every day and every night

She left him
A wasted heart
But he let her
Tear apart
These things that he
Never would have had
Another way

Day by day
Falls away
Day by day
I rebuild my heart
But I
Think it's gone away
Away
I think it's gone
Track Name: Unclimbable
I want to take you back
To when a young man
Had never felt anything so strong grab ahold of his heart
I followed you around
Out west, and back east
And through it all I knew
I was never good enough

It's hard for me to hold my head up high
When gravity is pulling my tears down
It's hard for me to know that I'm alive

And I was wondering how
things went so sour
I knew it all along
I wasn't scared at all
The way that you looked
The scent of your skin
I threw it all away
And had to climb alone

It's hard for me to know that I'm alive
It's hard to really know anything at all
Tried to climb out
You pulled me back
We were so young

I had to find a way
To stop holding on
To a life that we shared then
When we were so young
Come on, take my hand
We just dragged each other straight through hell
Afraid you'd burn
You climb your way out
Track Name: Body Rot
Didn't even notice it
Must've happened in fits and starts
At top speed over well worn roads
The fucker started falling apart

Add this to your list of pains
With your headaches and broken heart
You're riding through this decade kid
With a bad case of body rot

Pieces scattered miles back
Will you pick them up and seek repair?
With every little bump one more sloughs off
Your chassis is looking bare

Add this to your list of pains
With your headaches and broken heart
You're riding through this decade kid
With a bad case of body rot
Track Name: Fears
I left a lot of tears and pain
Trailing out
Behind me
Barely made it out alive

I made a promise to myself
To not repeat the past
A patchwork mess of fears

I figured I'd carry my ghosts around
For a while
And tell these tales
To sympathetic ears

I'd bind them up and revisit them
Ignoring all the unread ones
Whose pages weren't so worn

You have to take chances in this life
One more dose of fear to get you through the night
You'll meet your future wife on the 16th
You're really not as broken as you've made yourself believe

And what about the dreams I've had
Forever now
Does that bridge still stand?

And every night the fear that I
will not wake up
Or never feel love again

If I keep carrying ghosts around
For my whole life
And yelling at
Them to keep it down

I keep them to revisit them
Once in a while
And maybe now
I'll silence them within

You have to take chances in this life
One more dose of fear to get you through the night
You'll meet your future wife on the 16th
You're really not as broken as you've made yourself believe
