Lyrics


Cue the Sequel

Mischievous not devious

My empathy, not sympathy

Your words have pierced my chest

You said this: this is best

 

This is what I need

If this is what you need

So who’s it going to be

To be the one?

 

I’ll only think kindly of who you were

Of who you’ve known, and of where you’ve been

I hope you’ll think well of who I became

 

This is what I need

But I will not believe

Yet you take the leap

To be the one

 

Though I can’t see it yet

And I know we’ll have our moments of regret

You say, “This is the best way”

But I know what selfish means

So no beckoning, beckoning

For please, please

I’ll let this go

 

Let it go

Let it go

Let this go

I let you go

 

Let me go

 

This is “what I need”

I pray you’ll forgive me

 

Forgive me, forgive me

My sins, I’ve sinned, but I don’t care

Forgive me, forgive me

My sins, I’ve sinned, but I don’t care

I loved you, I loved you

To death, my death, but you don’t care

Forgive me, forgive me

My sins, I’ve sinned, but I don’t care


New Light

I could be anyone

I have a song to sing

A boy with broken bones and a broken heart

But it’s more than that to me

I say

 

It’s the middle of the night

I know why you’re at my door

It’s a question we won’t ask

But we cannot ignore

 

But before you ask

My answer is yes

 

Tell me this could never be

That you’re not good enough for me

Look me in the eye – I’ll tell you it’s a lie

Am I in you’re dreams at night

The way that you have crept in mine

Tell me just this time

And I will make you mine

 

Secrets are most sinister

They gave us cause for war

This has all come and gone around

Now I am at your door

 

 

And all they want is more

But I have nothing left

I say nothing left in store

 

I’ve seen battles

 

Felt the shackles

Of promises

That have gone asunder

But I promise

I’m not playing games with you

 

Tell me this could never do

That I’m not good enough for you

Look me in the eye

You know that that’s a lie

 

And I’m not gonna lie to you

I’m not gonna hide from you

I still feel a loss - don’t you?

From my first love...

But I’m not gonna let yesterday

Stand in our way today

Reach out and I’ll make you mine

I found my new light

My new light


CTRL + ALT + DEL

There’s a million volts of energy

Connecting us all wirelessly

To trouble we don’t need

And a hundred thousand secrets

Packed neatly with the regrets

We sold, ‘cause we couldn’t keep

 

And I’m beginning to understand the sad romantic

And I chafe from rubbing my hands because I’m growing frantic

And I start to form the answer

If you ask then I have the answer

 

 

How does it feel to be removed?

How does it feel to be removed?

Returned, restocked, refused

How does it feel to be removed?

 

 

I believe in honesty, honesty

In honesty, honestly

But I don’t believe in me

In honesty, sincerity

Initiative, integrity,

But I don’t show any of these

So I don’t blame you if you don’t believe in me

 

I couldn’t hold on

I couldn’t be strong

I could not do what I asked of you

 

And now you’re gone

And life, it moves on

 I could not do what I asked of you

What you needed from me

What I needed from you

What you wouldn’t ask me

What I needed to do for you

 

"Nothing but a melody

I’ll speak as your eulogy,"

Was all you said to me

But for a plethora of songs

This life must go on

Though your numbers are still letters to me

Your numbers are still letters to me

This still means the world to me

You still mean the world


Temporary Purgatory

One cigarette can’t hurt me

I mean I’m already dead

I bit that bullet yesterday

Took a phone call to the head

 

My only source of comfort

Is the part’s no longer mine

Decisions that I couldn’t take

I finally made this time

 

But memory is not the kindest muse

And I’m not in the best of shoes

For walking these streets all alone

 

I don’t know where I’ve gone

Hell and moving on

Or temporary purgatory

This is my judgment day

Karma’s real, no matter what they say

 

I’m all out of virtues

I’m spent on vices too

All I’ve got is this worn out song

But every word is true

 

So now it’s congratulations

‘Cause you get to play god

And judge me for my sorry sins

I confess they’re all my fault

 

The blade that you fell upon

Is deeper than you’re letting on

Please give me a second chance

(Though I know I don’t deserve)

 

Temporary purgatory

 

 I should have told you sooner

I’m Judas to your Christ

 

 

Please give me a second chance

Though I know I don’t deserve

This is the last of the second chances

This time I know I’m sure

I know what I want

 

Another cigarette can’t hurt me

I mean I’ve already died

But I swear I’ll make it worth your while

If you bring me back to life


Cincinnati, OH

If I could

I’d bring your mountain low

But I can’t get through

The sounds of our own egos

 

Save us one more time

There’s no saving us this time

 

What we’d say and left unsaid

Lesson learned and love is dead

I guess we got what we deserved

Everything that you expect

Take it all, give nothing back

The ending was so well rehearsed

I couldn’t be what you needed

Ever-charming, picture perfect

In my head I wish you the best

In my heart

All I want is revenge

 

We were best of friends

But when our story ends

We never should have met

 

We’ve been tempting the sweetest fire

Drop the match and light the pyre

 

 

Place your hand in mine

We’ll do this one last time

No use trying

Struck by lightning

We’re going down this time

 

 

Your designer love affair with your self-image

Your narcissistic tendencies and disregard for others

Your hypocrite demands have all but burned me over

But I’ll come crawling back to you

I’ll come crawling back to you

I always do

 

 

Who I am and what I do

Everyway I’ve changed for you

Look at what you’ve done to me

You cut my heart with razor’s edge

I’m jumping from this building’s ledge

I just hope you’re happy

I couldn’t be what you needed

Ever-charming, I’m not perfect

With my dying breath I’ll wish you the best

As I fall

All I want is revenge

 

Look at what you’ve done to me

I’ll never return from Cincinnati now
