Dave N.: I would like to thank everyone, everything, and every moment in my life that has forced me to see the darkest of the dark. Without these friends, enemies, and losses, I would never be able to see the brightest of the bright, and I would have never been able to be a part of the creation of this music.

Track Name: The Process of Losing Faith
The night is young and dammit so are we
Let's run for the money
Dressed to kill, our sin fits perfectly
Do it for me, honey
For the danger, not the fame
Cos you know I do the same

She never ever mentions anything about the afterlife
Not afraid to hide her wild side
She'll never die from what she's takin'
I shoulda known better she was livin' forever and well on her way
Cos she already signed the dotted line
The devil knew she wasn't fakin'
And all she ever learned was how to lose the ones she loved…
(… she knows all about the process of losing faith)

She saved a taste of poison just for you
Yes you'll have another
And share the sacred venom just for two
This one's just for lovers
Of the danger, not the fame
And will always be the same

Play the game
Put your winnings on the line
You'll never lose
But everything you have belongs to her
My back's at the wall
There's no escape
My hands are tied, and no one hears my call
Until it's much too late
Track Name: Smart Hurricanes
sometimes we fall
other times we melt
but nothing at all
can stop this hell

we are round pegs
we are square holes
we are doomed to lose as normalcy unfolds
we are a hot, hot mess
in a world of cold

once, we were golden
but now, anxious and stolen

stolen by our past and by those criminals of love
it's a one way street yes, yet I charge in left lanes
we are smart hurricanes

sometimes we fall
other times we melt
but nothing at all
can stop this hell

we are round pegs
we are square holes
we are doomed to lose as normalcy unfolds
we are a hot, hot mess
in a world I've got to mold

we are stolen by our past and by those criminals of love
it's a one way street yes, yet I charge in left lanes
we are smart

but nothing at all can stop
the ringing of the bells and chimes
signals we are past our prime

we are stolen by our past and by those criminals of love
it's a one way street yes, yet I charge in left lanes

we are smart hurricanes
we know not what the weather brings
Track Name: Cure Me Still
morphine like a vitamin pill
catatonic sentence structure: acquired skill
life is but a dream when death is closer than the will

don't touch me unless you can cure me still
kill me once
kill me twice
I feel like I've been killed nine times tonight
cure me still
'cuz I'm far from over
I'm an apathetic animal, look at me closer

days and nights and altered sights
damaged wings, yet still still no flight
still no levitation towards the light

vital signs again and again
clarify for me, my friend
just why am I here?
and have you ever cared?

unless you can cure me, I want this needle out
unless you can cure me, I will shout
unless you can cure me, I breathe doubt

cure me still
kill me once
kill me twice
I feel like I've been killed nine times tonight
cure me still
'cuz I'm far from over
I'm an apathetic animal, look at me closer
Track Name: Screams in Silence
break like the wind will break you
say what you need to say
tell me that it's over
scream like I am screaming at you today

tonight
I'm gonna drive forever
tonight
I'm gonna fly away

'cuz I just need to stare out
into oblivion
and forget this day

I forgot how to love the chase
so now I'm running away
"don't leave", she screams in silence
"this has ended", she yells with ease

oh, the intangible melody of yesterday
so strung out on tomorrow
tell me everything's alright
tell me that the grass in greener without your silent fight
Track Name: Just Like Ice
you've got to put that down
the distance between you and I
grows deeper with the sound
of an ambulance
speeding its way to your door to pick you off of the ground

just like the coldest days of a Baltimore Summer
gone too fast
but I don't think you even know you could be

you can break
or melt away
just like ice
you can stay the same

just give me one more chance
to make you feel the way you do
when it courses through your veins

'cuz I'd like you back
but this time the 'you' that I love
who doesn't know of the pain

the pain of loss, of failure, the helpless bliss,
and love, without all the little things like this
