Track Name: This is Why We Fight
Hey.
You spent a thousand days away from the world in a cage.
It's been a long time, but no where long enough.
And if you feel as if the world is the sole thing to blame
It's high time you had some shame.

Why can't you tell you're in danger?
(Oh my god, not again)
This behavior is what will do you in.

So,
With a thousand days you brought yourself to a new low.
Help didn't fix you, but how were we to know?
And if you feel as if the world is the sole thing to blame
It's high time you had some shame.

Why can't you see you're a danger to yourself?
Oh my god, this is for the best.
And I know it's hard
And people will often forget
All the thoughts that go on
In the back of your head.
Track Name: Forest Boy
I know it's hard to understand.
My bleeding heart has drowned the forest
With the sounds of complications.
I never wanted to know how you found a way out of this town
And left us all without patience.

And I would give it all away
Give all the blood left in my veins,
If it'd bring you around
And bring you back from the grave.
Two angry men took you away
Barely of age--oh what a waste.

They found your body in the woods.
With complications.

I've spent the last few callous years
Communicating all my fears
With the ghosts you left behind--
But never mind. It's too late.
I saw the writing on the wall.
Those captivating lines of chalk
Couldn't quiet all the thoughts
Of joining you behind that mortal veil.
My God--It's calling me.
Color's left my life--so grey can hardly see.
So leave my body with the trees
So my soul can never leave.

Pay no mind,
I'll be just fine living under your eyes
As your body goes to sleep.
Forest Boy, haunting my mind
Oh--all that I see
Are the secrets that you keep.
