"Descensus" (2014)

Schema lyrics - Circa Survive

I never want to see clear at all
There's nothing that could be there now

X marks the page you see
Trapped in a cold white room
I wanna know who'd be there when you snuff the wick
I won't reflect the same as you
I want the proof you'll promise to let 'em down quick.

I never want to see clear at all
There's nothing that could be there now.

Pull out your teeth (until)
There's nothing left (at all)
Immediately I feel relief from dragging this vessel around

Exit the stage you keep
Sleep in a cold white room
I wanna know who'd be there when you snuff the wick

Just shut your mouth,

And if it takes forever to be sure,

I wanna know
I'll wait it out
And see your hand without fingerprints
I wanna know, I wanna know

Pull out your teeth (until)
There's nothing left (at all)
Immediately, I feel relief from dragging this vessel around.

I'm playing dead (until)
There's nothing left (at all)
Immediately I feel relief from dragging this vessel around.

Child Of The Desert lyrics - Circa Survive

Was it all burdened with sin
Searching like a child in the night
Trust in me, no one here could see
I would never lead you astray

Oh, all is lost,
All will be returned in the end
Oh, all we have
All we have is somewhere to begin

Nesting in the thorn bush,
Blowing in the breeze
Calculate the pattern
That is causing my disease
Child of the desert,
Never had a name
Climax on the concept of eliminating pain

Take it in underneath the sun
Washed into the surface of your skin
Don't believe,
Time will help you see
I would never lead you astray

Oh, all is lost,
All will be returned in the end
Oh, all you save
Dare I say, just give it away

Give it away,
Give it away

Lurking in the shadows,
Nurtured in the dark
Rise above the surface to
Eliminate the spark

Wild like a daydream,
Soon to be erased
Searching for the moment
To evacuate the race

Nesting in the thorn bush,
Blowing in the breeze
Calculate the pattern
That is causing my disease
Child of the desert,
Never had a name

No one here will ever be the same

Not sure how to make it real
How to take my time, how to come alive
I don't want to feel a thing
I don't want to know, I don't wanna
I don't want
I don't want to take my time
Make it come alive, make it come on

Always Begin lyrics - Circa Survive

never wanted to beg for you
I never wanted to ask anyone for their help
I know the one I got
Don't know exactly what I want
I'm just making a fatal mistake... from my show

There is always a face you'll make
Whenever you don't believe (I need you there)
And I don't know what I want from you
I can't tell if I lost anything that I need

Always begin before you'd ever prepare
Never think twice about
Nothing will come until you're already there
Never think twice about it all

I never wanted to take from you
Love everything that you wanted me to have safe
I know it wasn't true (you know exactly what I want)
And I'm just making it way too fucked up for myself

There is a face you'll always make (that tell me)
Whenever you don't believe (I need you there)
And I don't know what I want from you (...could choose)
I can't tell if I lost anything that I need

Always begin before you'd ever prepare
Never think twice about
Nothing will come until you're already there
Never think twice about

I know a thousand ways to go (never know)
That is no way of living though (let you know)
Always begin before you ever prepare
Never think twice about it all

I made my bed
Now I live in my doubt
I'll change my mind
And all the ways I breathe

There are a thousand ways to go (never know)
Let go of everything you know (please tell me )
Give up on everything you think you need (let me know)
let me show (please tell me)

Always begin before you'd ever prepare
Never think twice about
Nothing will come until you're already there
Never think twice about it all

Only The Sun lyrics - Circa Survive

Break it in half, all the entrances are false
Are false and boarded up into itself
Making a noose out of everything you use
You use everyone directly out of sight

Will you evaluate my art?
(I'm afraid if I don't we will never know)
I don't know if I can
(Ohhh)

Turn this away, censor every word I say
I say nothing but this lie that I believe
And I wasn't there, but I felt the weight you bear
Buried all, on top, the energy we create

There's a strain, on the eye
When you stand way too close to what we want

Will you evaluate my art?
(I'm afraid if I don't, we will never know)
I don't know if I can
(I'm afraid if I don't, we will never go)
By the time it's finished tearing us apart
(I can't see anything out your window)
Will you get what you want?

I feel it in the air
(I know a way out)
I know it's in there
(I won't leave you there)

Know it's just a part of me you can not see
It's just an antiquated position
Know it's just a side of me you can not treat
Take it as a compliment you were left out

Let's just keep calling me absent
It's just an antiquated position
(You know) It's just a silent need for action
Take it as a compliment you were left out

Nesting Dolls lyrics - Circa Survive

You shouldn't stay, we'll never change
And I can't recognize you at all
Nothing's the same
It's all been arranged in a way
Keeping me out of it

I don't want to feel like this
Ever, ever, ever, ever, ever again
I don't want to feel like this
Ever, ever, ever, ever, ever again

When we were young and everything's magical
Then it all disappeared, I wasn't sure
But you were persistent and I was so drawn to it

I don't want to feel like this
Ever, ever, ever, ever, ever again
I don't want to feel like this
Ever, ever, ever, ever, ever again

You shouldn't stay, we'll never change
And I can't recognize you at all

Quiet Down lyrics - Circa Survive

Come between us, in our language, we stand up
Underneath it, buried deep inside your ancient walls
Replicate, many ways, destination melt away
Separate, and never say, transformation incomplete

How could I change? I'll never stay with you
And never stop regretting it
Search for my name, I'll never say sorry
An accident within itself
Stay within reach, the answers you seek, are everywhere
(Show me where)
You just have to quiet down
Lay back and know, the less that you show, beyond regret
The further you'll go

Just as the first words you spoke
Just as the fire, you burn out, oh
Circle the hearts that knew lies
The vision that haunts you in the night
Keep it inside

In our story you, have everything you want
Taste regret in all the faces we have seen before

Cut away, separate, destination self-destruct
Replicate, never say, all of it was just dumb luck

How could I change? I'll never stay with you
And never stop regretting it
Search for my name, I'll never say sorry
An accident within itself
Stay within reach, the answers you seek, are everywhere
(Show me where)
You just have to quiet down
Lay back and know, the less that you show, beyond regret
The further you'll go

Phantom lyrics - Circa Survive

On the edge
I don't know how it began
I feel the ghost
Of a dozen other men

I know the way you want it
I know which way you run home

I'm on the fence
I don't know which way to bend
With you

And I can't understand
How you wait for something you love
And I won't take a chance
I would rather be on my own
Than with you

Know the way that you speak to me
Like nothing could ever be understood
Know the way that you move around
Slithering on the ground
You shake over and over

And in my head
You're like a song that I could never identify
And all along you play
In continuous repeat
You're like a problem I could never rectify

And I can't understand
How you wait for something you love
And I won't take a chance
I would rather be on my own
Than with you

Sovereign Circles lyrics - Circa Survive

Take me away, I have no use for a bed
While you change everything
Falling to your knees, I can't feel sorry for you
Cause it's true, you're never there
Everything we are, starting to change before us
As you turn away, posture and grace, I love to watch you crawl

Keep me conjuring, cause you should be alive
You'll be out of it cause you live a lie
Alone

Sovereign circle around the end delay
We live in servitude and can't forgive ourselves
We took the Antabuse, I feel nothing, who's to know?

Take what you want, I have no use for a mirror
Cause it's clear, you never see
Reflections of light deep in the night
Are you sure? Cause you swore you never would
As you turn away, posture and grace, I love to watch you crawl

Sovereign circle around the end delay
We live in servitude and can't forgive ourselves
We took the Antabuse, I feel nothing, who's to know?

Let it shake, let it shake
Let it change, let it change

Descensus lyrics - Circa Survive

You have everything you could want
And you waste it
In a marriage where you can't decide
How to break it right

Ever changing the places you hide
(We will find)
An excuse in whatever you choose
(Let this die)

Trickle down your face, tears of pleasure
Mixed with tears of pain
They taste the same as everyone insisted
I won't let you go until the end

You have everything you could need
And you waste it
On a partnership that you hate
So you break it

Ever changing the places you hide
(We will fight)
An excuse in whatever you choose
(Let this die)

Trickle down your face, tears of pleasure
Mixed with tears of pain
They taste the same as everyone insisted
I won't let you go until the end

If you could try and get your timing right
I'll let you stay if you can eat the pain
Taking it's place, just let me disappear
If we forget, I'll do it all again
There is no home there when your heart is gone
The secret is clear if you could eat the fear
Where it can grow, no one will ever know
If you could try and get your timing right
Leave it alone
Look at how much it's grown
I'll be okay if I can sell the pain
Look and you'll see

If I didn't make all these mistakes then I wouldn't be losing
Wondering, openly, devilish, we've let it go too far
I know I let you down
Somehow we mustn't let this die

There isn't anything I ever wanted more

"Violent Waves" (2012)

Birth Of The Economic Hit Man lyrics - Circa Survive

Uprising within us,
A sense of total disillusion,
About what we're made of,
And where we want to be.
It's not so important to collect
As many things as we can, before our time is up

Our life is more than a side effect,
We must learn to be lost graciously.

We become everything we criticize
Light gives way shadows peel open our eyes,
Blinding us within.
Nothing is sacred, nothing is sacred,
(Oh) Nothing is sacred.

Maybe we have to
Forget everything we learned,
About where we came from,
To find out where we need to go
It's not so important to collect as many coins,
From the fountain before our time is up.

Our life is more than a side effect,
We must learn to be lost graciously

We become everything we criticize
Light gives way shadows peel open our eyes,
Blinding us within.
Nothing is sacred, Nothing is sacred,
(Oh) Nothing is sacred, (Oh) Nothing is sacred.

Nothing is sacred, not that it ever was,
Nothing is sacred, not that it ever was,
Nothing is sacred, not that it ever was,
Nothing is sacred, not that it ever was.

Our life is more than a side effect,
We must learn to be lost, lost.

Sharp Practice lyrics - Circa Survive

Tripping over things unsaid in a constant motion
I cannot recognize the truth ‘cause it’s unfamiliar
If you didn’t have so much left to prove, would there be resistance?

Kicking up this cloud of dust till it covers us
I had been there and done it a thousand times but never with my eyes open

You get what you paid for
We can’t sell our Goddamn souls anymore, anymore
Don’t let them give you the runaround again, again
It’s up to you to make sense of it. Yeah. Talk

No one hesitates to taste when they come and throw the feet down
If you wanna make haste, keep your feet on the ground
I see you coming from a million miles away like a stampede of footsteps

Kicking up this cloud of dust till it covers us
You can’t control what's happen to your heart
till you give it away - till you give it away

You get what you paid for
We can’t sell our Goddamn souls anymore, anymore
Don’t let them give you the runaround again, again
It’s up to you to make sense of it

So many words flooded in my vacant lie
So little space, too little sleep, too little time

Tripping over things unsaid in a constant motion
I cannot recognize the truth ‘cause I’ve never known it
I’ve never known it - I’ve never known it - known

You get what you paid for
We can’t sell our Goddamn souls anymore, anymore
Don’t let them give you the runaround again, again
It’s up to you to make sense of it

I see you coming from a million miles away
I see you coming from a million miles away

Suitcase lyrics - Circa Survive (feat. Rachel Minton of Zolof The Rock And Roll Destroyer)

I'm buried in your glow
Will you take me with you when you go?
I've been following your eyes
Going back and around and then subside

When you realize, when you realize my name
And suddenly your mood begins to change
Then you realize, then you realize I'm gone
I never said I want you to stay, to stay

I hear it in your cries, you dismantle my disguise

When you realize, when you realize my name
And suddenly your language starts to change
Then you realize, then you realize I'm gone
I never said I want you to stay, to stay
To stay, to stay

I'm buried in your glow
Will you take me with you when you go?
I've been following your eyes
Dismantle my disguise

When you realize, when you realize my name
And suddenly your mood begins to change
Then you realize, then you realize I'm gone
I never said I'd wait here for long

The Lottery lyrics - Circa Survive (feat. Geoff Rickly of Thursday)

It happened all in the passing of light
We won’t see it coming
I know that we’ll all lose in time
But my mind won’t stop running

Blame it on the air that you breathe
Well I can’t see how anything’s nursed on disease
Nothing is clean in this place
Our only hope is cutting off the nose to spite the face

Who’ll take the lottery?
Don’t look away
We’re the unlucky ones
I won’t let it tear us apart!
Who’ll take the lottery?
Don’t look away
We’re the unlucky ones
I won’t let it take you

This intrusion’s a functioning curse
Break the thumb and the whole hand will hurt
It’s not like moving backwards in time
It happened all in the passing of light

Blame it on the air that you breathe
Well I can’t see how anything’s nursed on disease
Nothing is clean in this place
Our only hope is cutting off the nose to spite the face

Who’ll take the lottery?
We’re the unlucky ones
I won’t let it tear us apart

Who’ll take the lottery?
Don’t look away
We’re the unlucky ones
I won’t let it take you
Who’ll take the lottery?
Don’t look away
We’re the unlucky ones
I won’t let it take you
