The first single off of our new album, "Brutally Honest", coming out this August.


Your eyes are open but they're not seeing what's right in front of you
You like being broken and I'm starting to learn that there's nothing I can do
I took my chances, played my cards and showed them all to you
Now you're who's broken, I'm starting to learn this was meant to be true

You've got my attention and used it all too fast
Now here's a lesson, don't use me for some class
I've got my reasons, you've got your mistakes
We've all been where you are in a house of heartache

So keep on singing all your sad songs
I'll just play along
But the therapy you get from me is all wrong
If you need me right now
Look up, I'll be gone
I've been the problem all along
Here's a fast song for all my wrongs

Your life's a blessing and you're wasting it all on precious lies
You'd see you're fading, but that's impossible to do with closed eyes
So now you're upset cause I'm long gone and you thought that I would stay
I told you I was leaving, don't tell the world I got up and ran away
I never said I would stay
Were those words in your head from the day?

So now you want to stay? Keep running.
What if you didn't leave? You'll never know.
Is this everything you wanted?
Is this everything you hoped it would be?

Your eyes are open but they're not seeing what's right in front of you
You like being broken.
