First single off of the upcoming release "Tearing at the Seams".


"It seems to me you're never going far"
The truth that's yelled from every passing car
As we sink into the dirt

Children scream and play pretend
That once was lost is their's again
Strike a bargain with the dealers of truth
To suck away my youth, to give my words some proof

I start to wander away, from all of our escapades,
Left in the dust in the wake of our mistakes
This time we know it's all for real

Numbers too tired to call, problems that never resolved, as if this ever meant anything at all
All locked inside the way I feel

What haunts me aren't the days I've made, it's the days I've left behind
A lost memory, a choice left to the side
The walls you build up will erode with time, but is it really all that different from that contract you signed
So many years ago, before anyone could know?

All things end before they grow and expand
So why not end this earlier than planned?

The people you knew all drift apart
A torn up book and a broken heart
Lose a face in a crowded street
Why get so close when it all repeats?

Empty threats and a debt to the free
All end tonight with a promise of security
I heard the wake up call
I knew what it was saying, I ignored it all

At first the laughter was all around
Now you make your bed six feet in the ground
A couple months ago you had it under control

Now it's time to pay for all that time you stole.
