Track Name: Anchor
Heartbeats away from a clean escape
Two mortals wrapped in our mortal coil

Well you've expended all my grace
And gracious understanding
Stop standing in my way

Optimism led me to my demise
While bitterness differentiates
Between yours, between mine

Well you've expended all my grace
And gracious understanding
Stop standing in my way

Well you can take it all from me
You're so goddamn demanding
Stop standing in my way

Anchor, you're pulling me down

Well you've expended all my grace
And gracious understanding
Stop standing in my way

Well you can take it all from me
You're so goddamn demanding
Stop standing in my way
Track Name: Silver Linings (ft. Benny Green of Witness for Hope)
The time we spent together
Taught me enough to know when to say
I've had enough
If you take a step back
I can't be left holding a frame
It's weighed me down too many times before

This is my resignation
I won't be left holding on
I'm giving up on you

Your disposition is killing me slowly
And I'm not the person you thought I'd be
As you lied through your teeth
You would still side with me
So I told myself I'd never leave New York
But I'm not the one who's broken promises
I'm looking for the silver linings

This is my resignation
I won't be left holding on
I'm giving up on you

I'm taking back every ounce of trust I put in you
I'm sick and tired of your shit and being played a fool
I gave you all of me, you threw it all away
I can't believe all these fucking games you try to play
I never thought I'd find myself alone
But it's better than that piece of shit we called a home
Fuck love, I'm done
You're just another one of my worst mistakes

Your disposition is killing me slowly
And I'm not the person you thought I'd be
As you lied through your teeth
You would still side with me
And so I told myself I'd never leave New York
But I'm not the one who's broken promises
I'm looking for the silver linings
To coming home to you
Track Name: The Otter & The Fox
I see in you what I will never have
Something that I can only hope to be
When you cradle the world in the palm of your hands
Hell and high water will crumble at your feet

Err on the side of caution
Testing the water's edge

You'll never forget this
(Even if you tried)

Broken hearts just trying to find themselves
Finding solace and safety in each other
Hand in hand they could probably walk through hell
Coming out as stronger friends or lovers

My brother, take your time
Sister, be patient and kind

And if you ever find the strength again
Don't you settle for something and just pretend
This is perfect if it stays the same
It's hard to do wrong when there's nothing to change
Track Name: Loose Lips
White lies and an innocent smile
I see right through you
Your past times and your little asides
Do you like the way he makes you feel

So I'll fake a smile at the impermanence
Of the promises you made
Because loose lips sink ships
But you'd have to talk to keep us from sinking

You're deep in my head
While you're deep in his bed
So I'll forgive and try to look the other way
Keep mum 'til I'm numb to all the shit you say
I'm sick of all the shit you say

So I'll fake a smile at the impermanence
Of the promises you made
Because loose lips sink ships
But you'd have to talk to keep us from sinking
Track Name: Chemical
My heart is the reason for all my inhibitions
I've been set aside one too many times
So I kept my composure as we became closer
But I find it's hard to walk that line

We lit a little fire, so now let's stoke the flame
I let my guard down and you're the one to blame
Now we know this affection's more than chemical

And you may be defying, defining
What chemistry used to mean to me
So you be the critic and I'll play the cynic
We're unaware of what's about to unfold
But for once I feel comfortable.

We lit a little fire, so now let's stoke the flame
I let my guard down and you're the one to blame
Now we know this affection's more than chemical
Track Name: Oh Brother
Am I medicating
Or complicating myself
With alcohol and nicotine
Well nobody wants to talk about anyone else
In the past tense
Crushed in disbelief

Oh what I'd give to have your smoke
Fill my lungs again
It feels like I can't breathe without it

Oh brother
How about you put that bottle down
You won't find me there at the bottom
I'm long gone and you're living for us both now
But don't you think I've forgotten

The plans we made
The promises I laid
Before I took my leave
This world may forget me
But in your memory
I find reprieve

Oh what I'd give to have your smoke
Fill my lungs again
It feels like I can't breathe without it

Oh brother
How about you put that bottle down
You won't find me there at the bottom
I'm long gone and you're living for us both now

I could drink
Until I rot inside
But when you're alone
There's nowhere to hide
From yourself

(I could drink until I would rot inside)

But it still wouldn't bring you back
Track Name: You Be Quiet, Joyce
I wish I could tell you
That things will get better
But I don't really know
I wish that we'd go back
And I could be better
When you were stepping on my toes

My arms are open
When you feel broken
(I won't lose you again)

You're still here
I'm so happy you're still here
Your absence would have
Driven me insane
Let me make this clear
Let me make just one thing clear
I promise that my love will never change
If you promise you won't take yourself away

I'll be your brother
Nothing more and nothing less
That's all that I can be
And I've got your back now
We can put behind the rest
I will never leave

My arms are open
When you feel broken
(I won't lose you again)

You're still here
I'm so happy you're still here
Your absence would have
Driven me insane
Let me make this clear
Let me make just one thing clear
I promise that my love will never change
If you promise you won't take yourself away

No new memories
Would have been the death of me

You're still here
I'm so happy you're still here
Your absence would have
Driven me insane
Let me make this clear
Let me make just one thing clear
I promise that my love will never change
If you promise you won't take yourself away
Track Name: Pretty Bird
Chased away from the start
Beating softly, surely
I can't let go

This will be the end of me
A new found danger
Our hearts like magnets, wanting more

An awakening of senses
Both body and mind
But mine can sense a change

We're spinning out of control
I don't want to let go
My heart belongs to you now

A gilded retribution
Endless compensation
But we're getting by from the start
Our wandering eyes, and wandering hearts

An awakening of senses
Both body and mind
But mine can sense a change

We're spinning, out of control
I don't want to let go
My heart belongs to you now

We're spinning, out of control
I don't want to let go
My heart belongs to you now
Track Name: Beacons
If this were easy for me
I would take every opportunity
To show you how much I care

I'm still awake

I will fall in love
The way I fall asleep
Slowly, then all at once

How will we ever know the feeling
When we put to much value on the word

I will fall in love
The way I fall asleep
Slowly, then all at once

This isn't easy for me
But it doesn't have to be
Because you're worth it

I will fall in love
The way I fall asleep
Slowly, then all at once
