I hate to be the one who had to break the news But we don't have solid footing in a life with few places to stand And now it's forced on us, that our compassion has a price Have we strayed so far, can't we learn who we are, what we want, what's important? We spend too much time counting (counting numbers) We think our lives are oh so quantifiable The love we pour is nothing more than counting, when cups will be full. Melting on the floor, don't you wish the snow could rise to where it came Take it back to when we chose to love, without motives of gain Under it all, there's no trick to pull No strings attached, bringing good to the world is a common goal But love's infinity, so corruptible Would you let it fall? We spend too much time counting We think our lives are oh so quantifiable We spend too much time lying waiting, for cups to be full Melting on the floor, don't you wish the snow could rise to where it came Take it back to when we chose to love, without motives of gain

Oh, say the myriad of all the things, you want everyone to hear you say What a remedy, it's why you're great, and not for being wimpy Oh hey the myriad, you've gotta learn, it's not about your looks or mass appeal There is so much fun in having heart, oh yeah, heart I think I've tried everything, it just can't get worse I tried to change the way I speak, not to mention all my new shirts But there's a part of me that's missing, I'm fitting in but I'm empty Don't want people to think I'm some screw up, even if I knew how to screw up There's nothing like it, I know approval is just too good, to let it go I'm scared of being who I am, so I'll be fake all through the year Because of what other people make me hear Oh, say the myriad of all the things, other people love to hear you say What a remedy, it's like I'm great but not for being me Oh, hey the myriad you'll never learn, you gotta keep your touch and mass appeal There is zero fun in having heart, oh yeah heart heart But more and more I get tired of what I am I think I'm done with this, I'm stepping off of this track I'm seeing now what was a waste of time, the days before were just a big, fat lie I don't want to keep on acting, just want to get into being me It's probably wonderful to know that being yourself can be the best for all You can be someone you are, rather than fake all through the year I know now what I dont' really want to hear I'm not saying that it's wrong to be loved or to be known Just do the best you can, to be true, 'cause its not always about you, have heart heart heart heart It's nothing funny when we see ourselves being just so confused I'd rather be someone I am, than be a fake all through the year I won't be controlled by only what I hear Oh, say the myriad of all the things you want other people to hear you say What a remedy, it's why you're great, and not for being wimpy Oh, hey the myriad, you've gotta learn, it's not about your looks or mass appeal There is so much fun in having heart, oh yeah heart heart

Well go tell your friends that you've replaced us with That we never really understood you And we never really seemed to care too We all know it's because you're on to better things Well don't forget to ask, if you need anything Now don't mistake us for our relaxed tone We would've reacted better if we had known We tried to give you as much as we could Maybe we gave a little more than we probably should Tell us as if you knew there was something underneath this, breaking us in two Criticize, apologize say Everything is fine, no you've got it wrong You're still welcome if you're willing to be modest But it's hopeless if you don't make the first move to be honest What is it that you truly love? Us, or your popularity, Us or yourself Now don't mistake us for our relaxed tone We would've reacted better if we had known We tried to give you as much as we could Maybe we gave a little more than we probably should Tell us as if you knew there was something underneath this, breaking us in two Criticize, apologize say Everything is fine, no you've got it wrong Tell us, please tell us that there's something underneath this, breaking us in two Everything is fine now, but If you think I lie, you've got it

Such a beautiful musical With song and dance that would never go away with age And every note and tragedy, rings true to our situation. Yeah, you up and leave when I notice you No I don't think those dancers onstage notice that there's Drama in the audience too. Go quit your game Cuz I won't stand in line just to stress or to think about it. Tell me why we're really here I thought this was more than just a time consuming chore Tell me the reason why you think that I'm your love Just to make things clear... We drive home late that night Minds singing in two lights It's a painful scene just because we know that we're not saying how this will go You wait for morals to break Say, let's get carried away I won't let you have me despite heartache Save my heart from reason

So, are you the Alamo? Is it much easier not to let it go? Acting like you've fought a painful battle; that's for you to choose You can pretend your life is over yet, but you won't take me too. It's so hard to believe how what was so at peace could get so misplaced. After just one mistake, pretended not to see that things are not as they used to be. Hold me high again. Why should we do this on our own? Just remember when life was all we'd known. Don't make this permanent, focusing on our differences. Under one atmosphere, you and me, we're both here. No, you want nothing more than to slowly bring me down Just for more attention, you've gone out of bounds But when I see myself as the murderer I realize the best thing, is just to let you take your turn When it's cleared and we've grown after all of the tolls then, maybe we'll learn It's unfortunate how we'll never see the end before we've made our stand, and nothing is left. I'm sure you meant for the best Yet you never wished it to end like this Does it feel good to know that you've stolen the show? cuz now you're all alone Oh was it that hard to see? Shouldn't we have agreed to disagree? If only you tried to understand Hold me high again. Why should we do this on our own? Just remember when life was all we'd known. Don't make this permanent. We may be total opposites. Under one atmosphere, you and me, we're both here.

Please always think of what you're doing The words you say won't always make it fine Avoidance is more than just a mistake It's a step that could drag down your whole life She's moved on to the next one Erasing Lines in the sand (but not for good) And every inch that she'll see when her pretty head turns Will probably make her, make her feel like Did you see that fire's light It burned and brightened, calling sirens Did you make a new mistake Scorching the things you can't escape You go telling lies whenever you like, how bout: "I wouldn't sacrifice a friendship for a real good time" You're the victim - at least that was your plan In the end, it's your friends that get the shaft She's moved on to the next one Erasing Lines in the sand (but not for good) And every inch that she'll see when her pretty head turns Will probably make her, make her feel like Well look at all these hearts you've burned (All those hearts you've burned) Let's make this right and move on with your life I don't care about your adventures with other guys As a friend, put a stop to this

Don't throw out a heart Didn't say that I'd leave you did I? Didnt say that I'd let this die Please don't tear this love apart Never said that I'd leave you did I? No I can't stand these thoughts of losing you Frozen tears they fall shattering the ringing in my ears Her voice shakes coldly in my ear Our end has never been so near I'm subdued, and you don't know what you're putting me through But I just can't explain to you The way you snap my heart two Don't throw out a heart Didn't say that I'd leave you did I? Didnt say that I'd let this die Please don't tear this love apart Never said that I'd leave you did I? I won't play with the thought of losing you We create a world that's never fully comfortable And I want you to feel beautiful This contradiction consumes Agreeable, you agreeable would be a miracle And all your fears make things difficult How could you think I'm done with you Don't throw out a heart Didn't say that I'd leave you did I? Didnt say that I'd let this die Please don't tear this love apart Never said that I'd leave you did I? I won't play with these thoughts of losing you We've seen much better from the both of us. We used to say things we always meant We never freaked out over one accident But I remember when we were so in love And for those memories, yeah I have to say, dear Don't throw out a heart Didn't say that I'd leave you did I? Didnt say that I'd say goodbye Please don't tear this love apart Never said that I'd leave you did I? No I can't stand the thought of losing you

At the weather's mercy this table lay Gnarled and worn to an aged gray Left outside not taken care of for too long Like my own dad's mistakes Father chose to quit his life's slow collapse The table so flawed it had to be scrapped, now Dragged out slowly by the ends of two it's legs With both his and my hands Tore it apart, piece by piece, every panel and pin With no change of heart. This table fed me in times I sometimes wish I never lived You made some mistakes that burned holes through gentle hearts, and you were framed harshly from then on In this dust all the hate and hurt that you had to live through to care for us If there's a thing called redemption to me, it would be what you've done for your family Before hoping that the snow would fall up He sees now you can't fill a bottomless cup Rain falls down it's fathers own beads of sweat Like the rain, please come down come to the ground come to the ground Come to the ground To all those years That you've lost In your fears Come Back down Back to what's real To all the love That you feel

about

After years of developing ourselves and this band... We're about to release our very first album to you - and it's taken a massive commitment to complete.

We owe you all so much for being an important part of our lives. Remember that we aren't pop stars getting you to pay for a 12-track album with only 1 or 2 good songs; we are musicians that care about only bringing you the highest quality music we can possibly make. This album for us is a monument to what it means to be genuine people, and to care about others.
In order to pay you back, I want you guys to be among the first people to hear some of this music.

Thank you all so much,
Pinn Panelle
