Track Name: Wasted Days
I'm ready for sleep
but I can't close my eyes
because my thoughts are too deep
and I know that my lips can speak
but what is the point if you're not listening
I know
I know I'm ready for sleep
but I can't close my eyes because you are next to me
and I know you want me to eat
some more of the lies
that you've been feeding me
-I know you wish me well
I know your little heart can't take-
Eggshells underneath
so I can't take a step
I'll just lay quietly
and I know the floorboards will creak
So I can't take a step
without you questioning
-but I know you wish me well
I know your little heart won't take
ownership of hate
no your little heart won't
take away the wasted days
the time I spent with razor blades
the cuts and bruises you create
were quickly healed they fade away too soon-
Track Name: Celebrate
Please don't hold your breath
leave me on my own
steal the light let them embrace
all the things they can't relate to
warm up in my empty lakes
let the shadow make my face come true
-I am nothing to celebrate
would you stop moving far away
I am nothing you should celebrate
could you start moving far away?-
Please don't hold your breath
and leave me on my own
one more time I'm shifting shape
all the views will go to waste if you
fill up all my empty lakes
let the shadow make my face marked through
-Chorus-
(Please don't hold your breath
and leave me on my own)
Would you please stop moving far away
we need something to celebrate
and could you please start moving far away
we've got something to celebrate
Track Name: Noose
Stay still
there's not much room for me to let go
back down I feel the noose is slipping from my throat
I'll stop pretending its a good thing
if you stop telling all your friends to cut the rope
and I'll stop popping all my neck bones
once I know that I have finally cracked the code
-Raw skin and c02 have flooded in the room
soaking in euphoria and my impending doom
hydrogen flows down my cheeks my oxygen's for you
swallowing euphoria and my impending doom-
Stay still
there's not much room for me to let go
back down I feel the noose is slipping from my throat
I'll stop pretending that I don't see
all the subtle things you hide inside each glance
when I'm hanging in your closet
with all the clothes your mother bought you second hand
-Chorus-
and she said, "Its nothing against you
I just thought that you should know
I'm sorry to leave you on such a good note."
I said, "I don't follow. I think the blood is rushing to my head."
she replied, "let me clear this up, enjoy that noose around your neck."
Track Name: Dirty Soap
I wash my hands
with dirty soap
turn off the lights
when I'm alone
lay in my bed
with broken bones
why do I need
another dose?
-I can't raise these hopes anymore
I can't pick my head up off the floor-
You wash my mouth
with flavored soap
my toxic tongue
will make me choke
my fingers cross
like tangled rope
why did I take
another dose?
-Chorus-
(I cannot change my selfish ways
I cannot change my self to blame)
I can't get clean
we're wasting soap
there's nothing left for me to hold
I lost myself
so long ago
why did I take
another dose?
-(I cannot change my selfish ways
I cannot change my self to balme)
I can't raise these hopes anymore
I can't pick myself up off the floor
I can't do most things that you implore
but I can't rest my head until you rest yours-
Track Name: Weed Stop Talking
I told myself that we'd stop talking
but the conversations we have
inside my head are so damn interesting
though they never seem to last
more than just a few words
I always overreact
perhaps that's why I have no confidence
I was never holding back

I told myself I'm never going back
but never mind I guess we're not through
inside my head there are good arguments
why there is no place worth going to
so I'll find someone to pin this on
then the pressure's out of my hands
now I'm free to hold my confidence
but it has made some different plans
-now I can't sleep because of you
I'm not pointing any fingers
though you're the one to blame-
I blame you for leaving
the city and staying in my dreams
I blame you for leaving
my head in the dirt and my heart on your sleeve
I hate me for believing
all the ideas that I've been stealing
It's not your fault that I'm grieving
I made this bed where I'm sleeping
It's not your fault I'm an asshole
I will grow up and stop teething
I will grow up and stop needing
I will grow up.
-Chorus-
Track Name: Settle Down
I've got a lot to say
but don't want it to go waste
I simply cant't keep holding in
all of these desperate words
but I can't find where to begin
I haven't felt since God knows when
don't let all this get to your head
you overthink too much
-take a moment settle down
you aren't the only one around
now that the truth is finally out
I think that I should go
leave you happily alone
you'll find another empty home
to decorate and then disown
yielding a hopeful memory-
You had a lot to say
back when you would not put to waste
back when you could not hold it in
look what the years have done
I went in expecting change
minor feelings rearranged
try to spit a truthful phrase
I'll wipe it off my face
-Don't tell me to settle down
I don't care who else is around
now that the truth is finally out
I think that you should go
leave me happily alone
to build myself a brand new home
I'll decorate and make my own
and you'll be nowhere near me-
(I miss you I miss you so much
I need you I'm needing your touch)
I've got a guilty heart and I must confess
my eyes are true but my tongue's a mess
I can't find what I need to say
to get you off my mind
in silence I feel far behind
its getting old because time and time again
I feel you slipping through
my memory and out into
what is mine now you don't belong
with me inside this place
my silence is my saving grace
so let these be
the last words you'll ever hear from me
Track Name: Alright, I Made a Mistake
Alright I made a mistake
don't send a message
you can write it on my face
is that a pen I can erase?
I'm having second thoughts
are you sure this will fix things?

You're right it's something I should know
not good with failure but
I read into your note
My cardboard sign borrowed a quote
"Will work for sympathy
I am one hungry ghost."
How much of a hypocrite could I be?
Thank God no one was around
I just stepped in your shit and I am smiling
You weren't even around
-I really tried to let it go
I thought I tried to let it go
guess I can't see it with my eyes closed
guess that old noose finally broke-
Alright you've got me to my knees
a few more dollars
I could buy some dignity
emotional pan-handling
I'm having second thoughts
are you sure this will fix things?
-Chorus-
Track Name: Talking Walls
I caught your whispers in the wind
I think your words were slightly bent
could you cough it up again?
I'd love to hear it all again
I'm sure I've heard it all before
my house was built with talking floors
talking walls and locking doors
but their voice doesn't ring like yours
-their voice doesn't ring like yours
their voice doesn't ring like yours
their voice doesn't ring like yours
their voice doesn't ring like yours-
I see myself just moving back
I've seen that cars are going to crash
I learned that lives don't really last
I'd love to hear that this will last
sure I've heard it all before
my house was built with talking floors
talking walls and locking doors
but their voice doesn't ring like yours.
-Chorus-
Everyone would have thought
the sentence to be sweet
coming from someone as beautiful as she
though I have lost my mind
trying to un-know every dirty word
that you have coughed up from your throat
oh I have lost my mind trying to get home
the wind is stirring up every direction that I know
oh I have lost my mind someone's locking all these doors
I'm talking to these talking floors
but their voice doesn't ring like yours

I caught your whispers through the wind
felt myself starting to pretend
felt myself only standing still
I heard you cough it up again
now I know what you truly meant
felt myself feeling ignorant
felt myself only standing still
twisting your words until they're bent
twisting your words until they're bent
twisting your words until they're bent
I falsified your true intent
now to me it all makes sense
I'm sure it's all made sense before
your house was built with talking floors
talking walls and locking doors
but their voice doesn't ring like yours
-Chorus-
