    Take Me

    I’ve never seen the look before

    Never seen you gaze so far

    I’ve never seen the look before

    Now I’ve seen it break me apart

    The moment when you close your eyes

    May it be seconds away

    I’d never seen the look before

    I’m never gonna see it away

     

    I’d never seen the look before

    I’d never seen the look before

    I’d never seen the look before

    I’d never seen the look before

    Girl, you’ve got to

    Take me as I am, lover

    Take me as I am, on fire

    Take me as I am, now

    It’s up to you if it’s time for another

     

    I’d never seen the look before

    Never seen you stand so tall

    I’d never seen the look before

    Like you’ve never seen me at all

    Erase, replace me, show your pride

    It’ll be better, baby, have some faith

    I’d never seen the look before

    Never want to see it again

     

    I’d never seen the look before

    I’d never seen the look before

    I’d never seen the look before

    I’d never seen the look before

    Girl, you’ve got to

    Take me as I am, lover

    Take me as I am, on fire

    Take me as I am, now

    It’s up to you if it’s time for another

     

    Take me as I am, lover

    Take me as I am, on fire

    Take me as I am, now

    It’s up to you if it’s time for another

    Take me as I am, lover

    Take me as I am, on fire

    Take me as I am, now

    It’s up to you if it’s time for another

    Take me as I am, lover

    Take me as I am, on fire

    Take me as I am, now

    It’s up to you if it’s time for another

  • 02:50 Story Lyrics
    Forest to Rest Stop

    I know better than to change your mind

    And I know better than to say, You’re out of your mind

    I can’t remember ever seeing you in line

    I’ll do anything to save your life while I’ve got mine

    And you’re not a headline

     

    Conquering a valley of disharmony

    From forest to rest stop

    You’re going to get shot

    Conquering a valley of disharmony

    From forest to rest stop

    You’re going to get shot or you’re going to get shot

     

    You never even seemed the type

    All day working hard to feed the grind, at night unwind

    I can’t remember ever seeing you in life

    I would do anything to save your life while I’ve got mine

    And you’re not a headline

     

    Conquering a valley of disharmony

    From forest to rest stop

    You’re going to get shot

    Conquering a valley of disharmony

    From forest to rest stop

    You’re going to get shot

    Conquering a valley of disharmony

    From forest to rest stop

    You’re going to get shot or you’re going to get shot

  • 02:46 Story Lyrics
    Collected

    Free-falling, holding on and empty-handed

    Baby, I’m bleeding bad and I can’t walk fast

    Anticipated all but no compassion

    Tomorrow will be so bad when we can’t go back

     

    If you care, I can’t tell

    So collected, you couldn’t make it any worse by crying

    We’ll see how you feel on the other side

    If you care, I can’t tell

    So collected, you couldn’t make it any worse by crying

    We’ll see how you feel on the other side

    On the other side

     

    Free-falling, holding on and empty-handed

    Baby, I’m bleeding bad and I can’t walk fast

    Retired from your lies and slow reactions

    And now that you seem so sad

    Well, we can’t go back

     

    If you care, I can’t tell

    So collected, you couldn’t make it any worse by crying

    We’ll see how you feel on the other side

    If you care, I can’t tell

    So collected, you couldn’t make it any worse by crying

    We’ll see how you feel on the other side

    If you care, I can’t tell

    So collected, you couldn’t make it any worse by crying

    We’ll see how you feel on the other side

    If you care, I can’t tell

    So collected, you couldn’t make it any worse by crying

    We’ll see how you feel on the other side

    On the other side

    On the other side

  • 03:34 Story Lyrics
    Cameras

    A camera in your face can make your heart race

    Or remove all doubt that you were born a fool

    A camera, as you bake, can watch your cupcakes

    Or document why they don’t taste so good

     

    Always an eye on you

    (Everybody’s watching)

    Always an eye on you

    You’ve never been alone before

    Always an eye on you

    (Everybody’s watching)

    Always an eye on you

    You’ve never been alone before

     

    A camera on a snake can check your prostate

    Satellites in space record the moon

    A camera placed in faith can cause a heartache

    A dashboard cam can make bad cops be good

     

    Always an eye on you

    (Everybody’s watching)

    Always an eye on you

    You’ve never been alone before

    Always an eye on you

    (Everybody’s watching)

    Always an eye on you

    You’ve never been alone before

    Never been alone (4x)

     

    Always an eye on you

    (Everybody’s watching)

    Always an eye on you

    You’ve never been alone before

    Always an eye on you

    (Everybody’s watching)

    Always an eye on you

    You’ve never been alone before

    Never been alone (4x)

  • 03:13 Story Lyrics
    Fold with 'em

    Say you don’t need me because I’m all into your friends

    On your own to fold with ‘em, is not the end

    Gave you the time of your life and you blame me

    Even pretended to hate me

    When guarantees are ungiven, and everything given free

     

    I swooped in once dead and gone from movin’ and groovin’

    Chose your friends as second bests to be a default star

     

    Not too late to fold with ‘em end over end over end

    Not too late to fold with ‘em end over end over end

    Not too late to fold with ‘em end over end over end

    Not too late to fold with ‘em end over end over end

     

    Survey says, well that depends

    Absolutes don’t mean a thing when you’re unemployed

    You try to say we’ve got limits

    But mine I’ve never seen

    You’re complicating our lives with your crazy

    Been acting carelessly

    You want to lose before you do it

    I want to bruise it and abuse it

     

    I swooped in once dead and gone from movin’ and groovin’

    Chose your friends as second bests to be a default star

     

    Not too late to fold with ‘em end over end over end

    Not too late to fold with ‘em end over end over end

    Not too late to fold with ‘em end over end over end

    Not too late to fold with ‘em end over end over end

     

    It ain’t true, all you say you do

    Where’s the proof for your altitude?

    What if you knew that you had to change your attitude?

    Because it ain’t no good

     

    Not too late to fold with ‘em end over end over end

    Not too late to fold with ‘em end over end over end

    Not too late to fold with ‘em end over end over end

    Not too late to fold with ‘em end over end over end

  • 04:09 Story Lyrics
    Get a Hold

    You didn’t wake up when I tossed you into the ocean

    And the hair on your bed has gotten smelly from the overuse

    Oh, you say you’ve got ‘em, but I don’t see your distractions

    No, you don’t get a piece of the action, because you’d rather lie around in traction

     

    Don’t even try to get a hold of me

    We had ours until you suddenly

    Decided it was obsolete

    Don’t even try to get a hold of me

     

    Caught in the middle of a cursed, chaotic commotion

    But is there ever better weather for you slipping me the absolute?

    Go, call it the bottom, you cauldron of overreaction

    You were the villain here before by your actions

    Fulfilling my dissatisfaction

     

    Don’t even try to get a hold of me

    We had ours until you suddenly

    Decided it was obsolete

    Don’t even try to get a hold of me

    Don’t even try to get a hold of me

    We had ours until you suddenly

    Decided it was obsolete

    Don’t even try to get a hold of me

    How’d I know I had mistaken

    Your being with me as happening?

    But with no time wasted

    Epiphany, a time I doodee’d

     

    Don’t even try to get a hold of me

    We had ours until you suddenly

    Decided it was obsolete

    Don’t even try to get a hold of me

    Don’t even try to get a hold of me

    We had ours until you suddenly

    Decided it was obsolete

    Don’t even try to get a hold of me
