Track Name: Resignation
I don't care. I don't care what or who I've become. I don't know. I don't know how you think I should feel... now...

It's fine. I know this is the life I chose for you.
I know the way you make me feel is all I should need.
I guess it makes up for everything just knowing you are okay. That's all I need.

I don't care. I don't care how this happened to me. I don't mind. I don't mind this place I happen to be... now...

It's fine. I know this is the life I chose for you.
To know you're well, that's all I need. It's true. It's true.
My mind doesn't need to wander. My heart doesn't need to race anymore.

I can't remember what I lost now; ever since I got this ring, somehow, it's faded out and muted down... I never think to look around. It used to matter, now it can't. I stay so calm. I used to rant about starvation in my soul, and now it's just an empty hole.

I don't care. I don't care how much love's costing me. I don't feel. I don't feel like someone other than me... now...

It's fine. I know this is the life I chose for you.
It's love. It's pure. That's all there is to know. It's true. I no longer want for anything. Nothing makes sense beyond you. You're all I need.
Track Name: Still
I know. I know this is not the life we planned. I know. I know this is hard to comprehend.

But you love me still. I know. I know that you love me still. I know. I know you do.

Sometimes. Sometimes it feels like we're in glue. Stuck here. Stuck here with nothing left to do.

But you love me still. I know. I know that you love me still. I know.

I know you sometimes wonder how we even go on.
(Life's awful when you think about it. So maybe let’s not think about it.)
You might just feel like your decision was wrong.
(But in your heart you know this was the only road...)

I know. I know your strength is all but gone. I know. I know it's been dark for way too long.

But you love me still. I know. I know that you love me still. I know. I know you do.
Track Name: Truth
Watching you sleep, the dark makes me accept the truth so clear tonight: I've lost the fight. I've lost this fight. A lone tear comes, yes just the one, but in this drop I clearly see what will not be. Routine keeps me busy trying. Something makes me keep on lying just enough to get me through. I know I won't get through to you, but I can't help it. I can't help you. What else could I do?

Like bad TV, this predictable scene on TNT suddenly stars me. Somehow it's real. It's all too real. A lone tear comes, yes just the one, but in this drop there's only truth. I've seen the proof. Futile motions keep me trying. Twisted logic keeps me lying just enough to get me through. I know I won't get through to you. But I can't help it. I can't help you. What else could I do?

How did this happen? God knows I love you like I should. How did this happen? I tried everything I could.

I stood and fought. Somehow, we lost. And now the cost. Oh God the cost. Why must we pay? Why must you pay? A lone tear comes, yes just the one but in this drop, the truth is shown. Your chance is gone.

How did this happen? God knows I love you like I should. How did this happen? I tried everything I could.
Track Name: Proxy
When we first met, it completely changed my mind. Everything I was working on seemed completely wrong. The sparkle in your eyes was blinding, so much brighter than mine. I knew you had it up on me, and you had nothing but time. Then God took it all away.

I will never step aside. I will never give up. You never got your chance, so I'll do this for the both of us. Don't you worry, Cupcake. I've taken on your cause. You never got your chance, so I'll do this for the both of us.

Maybe if I'd picked my demon, this one wouldn't want you. Maybe if I'd been more human, I'd have known what to do. Even though your time was fleeting, hours or maybe a day, you had seen the life you wanted. You knew what you wanted to say. Then God took it all away.

I will never step aside. I will never give up. You never got your chance, so I'll do this for the both of us. Don't you worry, Cupcake, I've taken on your cause. You never got your chance, so I'll do this for the both of us.
Track Name: Respiration
Each breath is pain. Each breath is pain for you. Each breath is love. Each breath is love for you. Each breath is silk. Each breath is silk for you. Each breath is sand. Each breath is sand for you, it's true.

This place is real. It's love and pain combined... entwined. But wait, there's more. I left an open door for you. Come in. Sit down.
Don't move. Don't look. Don't think. Just breathe.

Each breath is vile. Each breath is vile for you. Each breath is sweet. Each breath is sweet for you. Each breath is doubt. Each breath is doubt for you. Each breath is faith. Each breath is faith for you, it's true.

This place is real. It's sweet and vile combined... entwined. But wait, there's more. I left an open door for you. Step in. Relax.
Don't stir. Don't scan. Don't gauge. Just breathe.
