Track Name: New Moon
It started at six o'clock. I don't know quite where you were when I was gone. My eyes were shut, my lips were sealed, my dreams were carefully concealed. I knew in that moment we were destined to be something that I regretted. I was so blind and locked away, talk is cheap but I'd love to stay with you on the fringes of my youth. Safe and sound, feet firmly on the ground, but you've got the moon in a jar and your head is sitting somewhere in the stars and you're higher than I'll ever be.

It ended at twelve AM. Waiting for the rocket ships to land and take me back to your room to your room, return the parts of me it had consumed. In the light, through the glass, I think I caught glimpses of the past; that lonely kid, terrified, praying to god you would come inside. Let the old me slowly die. I'm black and blue trying to get used to you, but you've got the moon in a jar and your head is sitting somewhere in the stars and you're higher than I'll ever be.
Track Name: Late October
I'm in the kitchen laying on the floor. My eyes have grown tired, just like yours, but I said we'd make it didn't I? I told you I'd change this didn't I? I've been pushing my luck, and I know fear can get the best of us, but I've been reckless and I ought to know better by now.

My friend's in the basement talking to some girl. I think he may have been frightened but I can't be sure. I still can't stand up because I'm frozen by fear, but I said we'd make it didn't I? I've been pushing my luck, and I know fear can get the best of us, but I've been reckless and I ought to know better by now. I said we'd make it didn't I? I told you I'd change this didn't I? I said we'd make it didn't I? I told you I'll change this, I just need some time. But I've been reckless and I ought to know better by now.
