Track Name: More Alone Than
It's the thought of waiting for you
It's the patience I am drawn to
It's the act that I can't follow through

I'm too crazy to be bitter
And it doesn't scare me either
to say that I'm in love with you

I am more alone than you
If it were a contest
I would win

I am scared of my time passing
I am scared of my missed chances
You are just scared of life

I can see my face in your mind
While your eyes roll back & behind,
upward to the place where I hang all my truths
Track Name: Akron to Aleppo
So please don't be mad
All I wanted was to be loved
I just wanted to be loved
Is that so bad?

Why can't you love me?
I don't think I understand
I'll just have to keep looking wherever I can

But the walk from Akron to Aleppo will take some time
It'll take some time
And the road from Dayton to Damascus is hard to find
But if you don't hear from me in a week or two
It's because I died in the desert
No I haven't found someone new

So please don't be mad
Don't you want to be loved?
What's wrong with my love?
Is it so bad?

Why can't you love me?
I don't think I understand
I should give you demands so you would love me

...
So you don't love me,
I completely understand
I can't give you demands
But won't you love me?
Track Name: Whisper My Name
Come here soft and sit right next to me
Whisper my name into my ear
Then I'll know that it's real
I'll know that it's real
I'll know my wounds can begin to be healed

Take my hand and softly walk with me
To a place solitary
Then I'll know that it's real
I'll know that it's real
I'll know my wounds can begin to be healed

...
Even though I know you won't stay here with me
Whisper my name into my ear
Then I'll know it was real
I'll know it was real
I'll know my wounds were so close to being healed

When you go you'll say you don't know what you want
I'll whisper 'stay' into your ear
But I know it's late
Too late for us my dear
I'll know my wounds have become much too real

...
Your mind is growing weak, you can't think straight
You said you don't think you can stay
'Nothing is real'
You 'feel insane'
Shut the fuck up.
You're the same, all the same

...
When you've given up, then tell me to my face
Don't hide behind our past embrace
You know this is real
It's always been real
You can't return, can't retract what you steal

Add me to your list of casualties
Whisper my name when you're alone
You don't deserve to have or to hold
I'm not your toy
You stupid fucking boy.
