"In Your Hands" as written by Edward Carrington Breckenridge, James Riley Breckenridge, Dustin Michael Kensrue and Teppei Teranishi....
Bound to this couch, I lie in waiting
Watching wind blown memories slip by my window sill
I can't fall asleep, voice in my head disturbs me
Waking nightmares keep, have my cries fallen on deaf ears
Can you hear me or am I

Talking to myself again, is there anybody listening
Are you taking this in, am I wasting my breath
Tell me, is the wind in your sails worth everything you give
Are you looking for something, forgiveness

I leave it up to you, I guess I'm better off removed
Because the situations growing too thick,
In your hands

Could it have been something I said,
Or was it something that I did
Did I ruin my chance, have you written me off
Tell me where did I cross the line,
And can I work my way back this time
Will I always regret this decision
I leave it up to you,
I hope you find a good excuse because
I've given about all that I can give,
In your hands

Are you taking this in, am I wasting my breath
Did I ruin my chance, have you written me off

I could try to count the times that I've been through this in my mind,
But I'm running out of fingers and I don't have that much time

Are you taking this in, am I wasting my breath
Did I ruin my chance, have you written me off

    General Commentoriginally, in your hands started off like that. then dustin started singing the 'bound to this couch..' part really slow. it sounded good, but this is the pop punky song on the cd. so i guess it needed to be faster.

    basically a song about a girl. and ian stift wrote it with dustin.

    General CommentI think that this song is directly related to the song trust. If you think about it, the song is about a girl that he has been investing his time and love into and its up to that individual to make things right and to keep everything together. A relationship that has gone bad and how he wants it to stay together. Thrice has ingenious lyrics

    General CommentHere's the lyrics to start ::

    bound to this couch, i lie in waiting
    watching wind blown memories
    slip past my window sill i
    can't fall asleep,
    voice in my head disturbs me
    waking nightmares keep,
    have my cries fallen on deaf ears
    can you hear me or am i
