Track Name: Hole
hush, hush, scream, scream, everything's like a dream
live it like a nightmare, fake it like a fantasy
manipulate the bait, initiate the hate
you enjoy the chaos you create

but now your world has gone crashing down
there's no one left to pick you up off the ground

you dug your hole now you can live in it

hush, hush, scream, scream, push it to the extreme
just another part of your hypocritic routine
manipulate the bait, initiate the hate
a crooked smile as you play it fake

I will not look back even if you fall
(I hope your pain was worth it all)
I will not look back even if you fall
(I hope your pain was worth it)
Track Name: Nothing Left Here To Burn
broken record on the stereo
shattered glass from a past I can't let go
I hope to hell this is the last time I ever hurt

what more do you expect from me?
there's nothing left here to burn
and I've given you every part of me
there's nothing left here to burn

a broken heart -- tried hard to make it whole
but the memories won't seem to let you go
I hope to hell this is the last time I ever hurt

and I know (yeah, I know)
Track Name: Holding On To Nothing
it's been so long
since you've shown me a sign of life
this feeling comes and goes
but it's here tonight
this time the hurt isn't worth
putting up the fight
I wish my head could tell my heart
how to get it right
I thought I'd be someone you'd love by now

should I keep on waiting
while you keep fading?

I keep holding on to nothing

with every move I make I only push you away
why must I kill everything that I try to save?
some want it all but it's only you I crave
with every word I write I'm only digging my grave
I thought I'd be someone you'd love by now

I'd give you anything you want
but you want anything but me

you have everything you need
and that's anyone but me
Track Name: The End Of History
The past is nothing but a waste of time
a part of life you think you left behind
the place I found my heart
but lost my mind
how else could I have thought
that you'd be mine?

So pack up all you know and all you've learned
light up all the years and watch them burn
if tomorrow there is no more you and me
then today will be the end of history

repeat the same mistakes that we did before
we hurt each other then come back for more
now I've lost my heart
but found my mind
and all these thoughts of you I'll leave behind
Track Name: Naive (Don't Say a Word)
hey, may all my feelings go unsung
and our mistakes die while we're young
why are we so afraid to lay the blame?
instead we just bury the shame
while we

let it go, don't let it show
how can we be heard
if we don't say a word?
don't say a word
don't let it out
just keep it in
let the truth burn from within
don't say a word
(keep it to yourself)

hey, just put your faith in family
maybe they'll be there when you need
yeah, or just stand around and watch you bleed
yeah, there's no guarantee, so why

hey, open your eyes and you will see
that we are all born naive
yet some choose to refuse to believe
it's not something you achieve
