Track Name: Do They Know It's All Your Fault
When will you open up your mind?
When will you let me see inside of it
You know I'd die for it
Cause I can't believe that you would do this to me
It's not like you to tear it all to the ground
I can't believe that you would do this to me
I won't let you tear it all to the ground
Something simple, if it was simple
Then I'd have it all figured out by now
When will I know

Do you know how hard it was for me to admit my faults
Was I wrong for wanting to show you who I am, yeah
I am clearly not the same person that I was back then
And now I know

It was you, wasn't me, and you're caught in between
Present time and all past memories
I'm finally learning that I don't need to
Discover what's inside you
It's safe to say I've made up my mind
Cause you're so naive
And everything about you makes me
Makes me wanna run but maybe
I'll stand my ground this time around

Cause I found no sanity in keeping you in my life
I found no sanity in keeping you around

It was you, wasn't me, and you're caught in between
Present time and all past memories
I'm finally learning that I don't need to
Discover what's inside you
It's safe to say I've made up my mind
Cause you're so naive
And everything about you makes me
Makes me wanna run but maybe
I'll stand my ground this time around
I'll stand my ground

I'll stand my ground
It was you, wasn't me
Track Name: Finished From The Start
You all have treated me so well
It's getting harder to walk away
Well I've tried to find a reason to stay
But these fake expressions on my face are wearing out
It wears me out, but don't get me wrong
This place built me, but now it's time to break free
So guilty, but I know it's the right choice in the end

'Cause this isn't a place of permanence
'Cause I'm simply passing through
You can try to make me stay
But there's nothing you can do, because
In two weeks I'll be out of this place for good
I won't drag you down anymore
In two weeks I'll be out of this place for good
I'm finally moving on
But I'm thinking
That I will miss this

Am I over-exaggerating again
Is this just blown out of proportion
Well you all have treated me so well
But was it for me, or was it for you
I think that I see the truth
That I was only being used
What else is new, I'll carry on like I always do
Because pretty soon, you won't see my face again

'Cause this isn't a place of permanence
'Cause I'm simply passing through
You can try to make me stay
But there's nothing you can do, because
In two weeks I'll be out of this place for good
I won't drag you down anymore
In two weeks I'll be out of this place for good
I'm finally moving on
But I'm thinking
That I might miss this

Sometimes in our lives we need to prioritize
Make change, rearrange everything that's in the way
Sometimes in our lives we need to prioritize
Make change, rearrange everything that's in the way

'Cause this isn't a place of permanence
'Cause I'm simply passing through
You can try to make me stay
But there's nothing you can do, because
In two weeks I'll be out of this place for good
I won't drag you down anymore
In two weeks I'll be out of this place for good
I'm finally moving on
But I'm thinking
That I won't miss this
Track Name: Revision (The Mess You Made)
I really should have seen this coming
From day one you were always dragging behind
Believe me, I offered sympathy, we were on the same side
But I won't lie, I've waited for this day to come
Cause it's about time you realize
You crave it, you feel it, you don't know what you want
I caught you, red handed, you might as well give up

Why did you rip it to shreds
What if I drowned in all the doubt you built inside my head
I should have listened, should have paid attention
But I couldn't stand to watch you go
I thought I knew you but you proved me wrong

You never listen to me anyway
Next time I won't catch you when you fall
But I can't lie, I've waited for this day to arrive
Cause in my eyes it's just not worth it anymore
You crave it, you feel it, you don't know what you want
I'm getting impatient, when will you give this up
Give it up

Why did you rip it to shreds
What if I drowned in all the doubt you built inside my head
I should have listened, should have paid attention
But I couldn't stand to watch you go
I thought I knew you but you proved me wrong

I didn't want it to end this way
You're leaving me with no choice
I didn't want it to end this way
You're leaving me with no choice

And now we're moving forward
I'm gonna miss you my friend
I can't hold on much longer
It's nice to know you my friend
I didn't want it to end this way
I didn't want it to end this way

You need to change
Track Name: Stationary
It's like you're blind
You need to open up your eyes
And realize that there's something bigger outside these four walls
You live a life so small
As if you don't even care at all about what the future brings
Can't you see whats lingering on the other side
You're stronger than what your mind...

Makes you out to be, it's your own worst enemy
And it hurts to see that you are sick of trying
Cause I've been waiting ages for you to make changes
One day you'll see exactly what you can be

It's been some time since you've opened up your eyes
And had some inspiration, maybe some motivation
Make some moves from all that dreaming you do
And don't let you're fears conquer you while your alive
You're stronger than what your mind...

Makes you out to be, it's your own worst enemy
And it hurts to see that you are sick of trying
Cause I've been waiting ages for you to make changes
One day you'll see exactly what you can be

And someday you'll be everything you wanna see
And someday you'll be everything you wanna see
Change things, growing isn't something that comes easy

And someone might just take it all away
Don't let it be me
Track Name: Lesson Learned
This cycle is restarting
Makes me see that I have to
Get a grip on the situation
Before I lose it all
You have no place to tell me who I am
You have no strength to make any demands
If you are who you claim you are then why do you still stand alone

Lesson learned I won't trust anyone who treated me like you did
I know I'll always forgive, but I will never forget
I don't forget

So what's you explanation for all the havoc you've caused
Did your plans have a destination
You're gonna lose it all
You have no place to tell me who I am
You have no strength to make any demands
You still stand alone, there's nowhere to go

Lesson learned I won't trust anyone who treated me like you did
I know I'll always forgive, but I will never forget
I don't forget

Hey, and now I see
I am not afraid
You don't scare me
You don't scare me
I've learned, I've learned, I've learned
