Track Name: Home
Sunrise in my eyes
it's burning me
hold back the tears
fight back the anguish
knock it off the face of the earth, tonight!
Sick of this crippling anxiety
sick of my negative mind
sick of all the infections in my life!
I know you're hating everything
think about the words I say
your life could be much worse than it was today!
Brush yourself off
you may have a home or you may not
but one thing is for sure
there will always be these songs!
There will always be these songs that got you through adolescence
the ones that you took to heart
the songs you screamed with your best friends
making you forget that life sucks!
Track Name: For What It's Worth
Let's do away with negativity, it's unnecessary
I'm not saying don't get angry,
just don't let yourself be consumed by hate!
I know I'm one to talk, hypocritical, maybe,
at least I know how to point out my flaws and
teach others to be nothing like me,
cause I'm no saint!
(I'm no saint) I'm sorry if I seem so far away
(trying to change) I'm building a new me
(making waves) trying to make sense of everything!
No more squandered opportunities,
it's not hard to see!
Time to take the trash out, give myself some room to breathe!
Used to be such a burden to all my friends now I
no longer want to die, for that I owe them my life
Thank you, you all know who you are,
I'm sorry but,
(I'm no saint) I'm sorry if I seem so far away
(trying to change) I'm building a new me
(making waves) trying to make sense of everything!
Here is my heart, do with it what you will
Here is my soul,now it's all yours to kill
Thank you all, you all know who you are!
Track Name: James J. Polk (feat. Jake Price)
Lights on we walk into the room
a beautiful catastrophy
and I'm in love with this feeling
so long to the stressful past
The names of my friends
they're in my heart 'till the end!
This house holds many memories
So we raise a toast
to the new and the old!
This one's for all who know
There are too many cocks in the kitchen
too many memories of whisky and gin
this place was my home, now I'm out on my own
and I'll find somewhere else to rebuild again!
Light me up!
Fire! Fire in the basement!
Engulfing everything!
Walls collapsing!
This house was the start of something perfect in our hearts!
This house was the start of something beautiful!
There are too many cocks in the kitchen
too many memories of whisky and gin
this place was my home, now I'm out on my own
and I'll find somewhere else to rebuild again!
Some people say home is where the heart is,
but mine was ripped out a long time ago
now it's on my back in a polka dot sack
and I'm following the train tracks alone!
Track Name: Numbness Retreats
I never considered myself the lucky one
It's a strange new feeling I can't wrap my head around
But I'll go with it I haven't felt this real in a long time!
You're the love that resonates inside my chest
I don't care how many obstacles I'm up against
Every path I take is worth it, as long as you meet me at the end!
This is me emptying my heart, bearing my soul to you
better than any way I could before
let me apologize in advance for any harm I do
or any harm I've done in the past,
I can say this at last
You'll never have to feel that kind of pain again
as long as I live!
Teach me how to trust again
teach me how to keep my heart from breaking when it bends
and I'll repay you in any possible way that I can!
This is me emptying my heart, bearing my soul to you
better than any way I could before
let me apologize in advance for any harm I do
or any harm I've done in the past,
you own my heart at last
do with it what you will, it's made of glass
I'm on top of the world!
and I don't plan on coming back down
I used to be to scared to cry, and each day used to burn and slip by
now I no longer feel like I want to die
cause I'm on top of the world!
So I'll save you from the pain that dragged you down so far
and treat you like the angel that I know you are
And I'll try my best to be your bullet proof vest
so you'll never have to feel that way again!
Track Name: getthefuckoutofmyhouse
All the walls are rotting from the inside out
decaying foundation!
I wake up to the sun shining through the cracks in the ceiling
and taking on the day seems less and less appealing!
This is my hell
Track Name: Sour Milk
I'm sick and fucking tired
let this expire
so my life can change!
It's for the best I am just not impressed with your act these days!
(train wreck, you're hell sent)
even your closest friends have nothing nice to say!
Please leave me out of this I've had enough
I hate your guts
Frankly, you fucking suck!
You know you're lying to yourself all the time
saying nothing's your fault and everyone else is the bad guy
leave me out of this I've had enough
I hate your guts
Frankly, you fucking suck!
You know you're lying to yourself all the time
saying nothing's your fault
well this problem is no longer mine!
Track Name: Lightning Strikes
You can't wait for tomorrow cause it's not gonna come
You can't wait on a leader cause there's not gonna be one
You can't do nothing and expect something to change
You can't ignore the horror and believe borders will soon rearrange
Today every truth is a lie
cross my heart
I hope I die
Left or right each way is just the same (we're not cared for!)
We can't be saved
You can't take action behind a computer screen
A status update or a twit won't intervene
Your phone holds no answers just distractions for your mind
So I suggest we leave this social media bullshit behind
Our days are numbered this is true
aside from all beliefs and views
the time is now for you to stand up straight (time to unplug!)
spit out the bait
This life scares me too
it will all be over soon
our world's end is near (it's all our fault!)
The main source of my fear
Lightning strikes and the whole world stops breathing
Lightning strikes and our hearts stop beating
Track Name: Grand
Heartbroken and bloodied up senseless
rolling with the punches they hit so hard
pulverized my mind's been scrambled
a thousand arrows pierce my heart
but I'll be okay
I'll get through these days I've got my ways
I think I'm leaving my body tonight
I think I'm seeing myself for the very first time
And now I'm feeling numb and content
enjoying the privilege to mentally vent
we all deserve some form of comfort
some day your patience will be spent
but you'll be okay
you'll find your form of solace, somehow, someway
I think I'm leaving my body tonight
I think I'm seeing myself for the very first time
Track Name: Slam
Clock in and I'm clocking out of my mind
Feeling like I'm being strangled all the time
this noose constricting my neck
takes form of mindless labor and a laughable paycheck
no recognition
no respect
no way to win what did I expect?
No way rewarding
no way okay
not how I wanna spend my days so,
fuck this, I quit!
Seize the day, throw away what makes you unhappy!
Seize the day, repetition is a disease
Track Name: Keep Your Cool
Slow Down you'll givce yourself a heart attack, you're too hard on your mind
Those fictions you create up in your head are killing you inside
So drop it, it's not worth it
You're only making yourself sick
It's not fair to yourself to stay and live in this fake hell!

Close your eyes, don't ever stop dreaming again
Close your eyes, go back to sleep
And you'll get through whatever you have to
You'll get through whatever you have to 'cause you're in control!

I know itr hurts I know it feels like too fucking much sometimes
But you can't let yourself get dragged down by thoughts that you can't justify
So drop it, it isn't worth it
It's only in your head just keep your cool, and keep moving forward!

Close your eyes, don't ever stop dreaming again
Close your eyes, go back to sleep
And you'll get through whatever you have to
You'll get through whatever you have to
I know you could snap at the drop of a pin, just ask yourself first if it's worth it!

Slow your roll kid
And just stay in control!
Track Name: Kiddo
My face is red
My bodie's numb
It's happening again.
The light is on
The mood is gone
We're back to being friends
These nuisances are disassembling
This isn't fun, I wish it would just end

Remember one year back when you fell asleep in my arms
I wish I could find the feeling that could surpass all the happiness
When I was with you everything made sense
I'll be honest I never expected this
After that night
I knew that things would change
But these feelings make me insane
With no sanity to be found
'cause you still live in this town, so I guess I'll see you around!

What would you say if I told you that I miss you
Would you say that you miss me too
Or would you go about your day as if nothing ever happened
I know I fucked up, I'll probably do it again, but I wanna say I'm sorry in advance
I'm not mad at the choices that you (I) made
I'm just regretting the ones that I gave
Track Name: I Don't Feel Good
Your past or mine, you don't have to decide
they both bring my head to a dark place
I need to change
I need to stop taking all of my anger out on the ones who don't deserve to see it
now I feel like my mind is like a bottomless pit
once I dive right in the falling feelings don't quit
continuous loop of this toxic shit
sometimes I get too deep before I remember how to swim
This water's so inviting it's as cold as my heart was
before I found the missing piece to fill in the part that
let the liquid seep in and sink it down to
the black abyss inside my soul, well now I just float
You embraced me and pulled me to the surface
my life jacket
now I feel like it's my duty to desert this ocean of hate
you are my lifeguard and I owe you my life
you dove into my mind
found me drowning in my fears
so you pulled me out and breathed your life
into me!
Track Name: Good Grief
Standing on hot coals waiting for the seasons to change
Wondering how this fear made itself back in my head
unnecessary weight, this worry is killing me
eating away at my insides like a disease
Livid walk home twenty three below (stare at the sidewalk)
Nothing but streetlights and snow (this is my hell this is my home)
over thinking nonsense
over thinking made up regrets
I can't justify this
and I know that I don't need this
Fuck this I say
Nothing is going to drag me back to hell today!
Track Name: Run
The rain beats down on these dead streets
The air is filled with the stench of defeat
I won't leave my house today
there's nothing left to say
there's no one left for me to hate
my fists they clench, my teeth they grate
I walk to work and school
and just float in the pool
Track Name: The Motivator
You've made it this far you'll recover soon
It's just another scar you'll recover soon
I keep my angst bottled up inside
I try to run I try to hide
but I can't keep on living this way
my back's against the wall and it's hard to breathe
the troubles of the past are killing me
and the hill up ahead looks even more steep
but I'll swing as hard as I can 'till I break my hands
and I won't give in as long as I'm standing
Cause it's always been get up try again
quitters never win
and it's always been get up try again
this is me calling in sick
I'm lazy, idle, and I just don't give a shit
but that don't mean I'm gonna quit
This is me putting the pen on the page
finding an outlet for my rage
and I encourage you to do the same
You've made it this far you'll recover soon
It's just another scar you'll recover soon
