Track Name: Everything Will Be Okay
I will love you either way
Just a little less after every day
Now I know nothing will ever be the same
Let's watch the ink run off the page and down the drain.

And when
The rain comes
I will feel the same
But I'm a little better than I was

I am so tired of moving on
'Cause movin' on is the only movin'
I've been doin' for so long
Now my heart is beating out of time
You needed a little sunshine so you took all of mine.

And when
The rain comes
I will feel the same
But I'm a little better than I was

I will love you either way
Just a little less after every day
Track Name: Drywall
I would be honored to waste my time wasting away with you
And maybe making up my mind will take a year or two
I've been searching around this place, I've been searching for you
The closer that I drew, I reached a scientific breakthrough


I wanna spend the night
Looking at the plastic stars
On your drywall ceiling
I can bring my telescope
and I can search the skies for hope
When in reality, it was right next to me.
And all my friends in their fancy cars
Can drive all they want but they won't get far
They don't they won't have someone like you

(do do do dooo)

I would be alright tomorrow if I can see you today
Cause whenever I'm around you everything feels okay
But I can be alright tonight if I can call you on the phone
On cold nights like these I feel so alone

I wanna spend the night
Looking at the plastic stars
On your drywall ceiling
I can bring my telescope
and I can search the skies for hope
When in reality, it was right next to me.
And all my friends in their fancy cars
Can drive all they want but they won't get far
They don't they won't have someone like you

I kinda like the little drumroll when I finally reach your porch, the little big bang when I open up your door, our conversations about how we thought our futures would be.
I hoped that you future plan would involve meeeee oh OOOOOOOOOOO

I would be honored to waste my time wasting away with you
Track Name: Wings
So I'll enter stage left
Just to leave stage right
all my friends and family
Came to see me fail tonight

You said you would be different
You were in the worst kind of way
Change isn't as bad as you made it out to be
Just look at what it what done to me

My situation is growing dire
My voice is trapped inside the choir.
Are my dreams just goals that I've acquired
or is it some lust for failure?

I see you up on stage
As the hero you portray
At times like this I wish that I stayed
In my bed today

Being alone isn't that bad
If I ignore the pain it goes away
The acknowledgment of it is what kills you
And then you'll wither and decay

But that's just the way things were meant to be
Pain is something invisible that needs to be seen
I think I saw it in my dreams
It was behind my eyes it was all I could see

And as you see me up on stage
As the villain that you made me out to be
All the people who used to revere me
Now won't even look at me

You were right, you were different
I ran out of things to say
You took everything away from me
You stole my breath, you took it away.
So I'll enter stage left
Just to leave stage right
And all my friends and family
Came to see me fail tonight
Track Name: When We Were Younger
When we were young it was an epic montage
Now everyday is a collage of sabotage
Now your smile is so forced that it hurts
I didn't mean to complain whatever works for you works

When you were young you used to laugh and chase cars
We promised if we got lost we'd meet up on Mars
Now you are cloaked in the camoflage of your entourage
I stay up all night because who we wanted to be isn't who we are.
Track Name: Faded Flaws
I guess this is my hamartia, I guess it's my fatal flaw.
I guess I should say I'm sorry but I'm only sorry I could not.
You said you needed something else I just didn't hit the spot.
If I could rearrange anything I would tell you to stop (HA)
(drum fill)
So here is an ode to the faded hair dye and all of the lies that you left behind.
Here's a poem, to show'em what I had implied and all the accusations that I have denied.

I wake up in the morning and put on someone else's skin
I have never worn this face before let's take it for a spin
I'm not a man with a vision I'm a boy with a dream.
And I really cannot handle you walking over me.

You could have let me know that I jumped too many fences
(I never knew that you could weave these words around yourself)

So here is an ode to the faded hair dye and all of the lies that you left behind.
Here's a poem, to show'em what I had implied and all the accusations that I have denied.

Track Name: Special Case
The traction on my shoes have been worn down to a fraction of what they've used to be.
So I can no longer hold my ground against your onslaught of insults.
I hope you're pleased with your results.

The insole of my shoe has so much more of a soul than me
You took away so much, there is so little left for me to keep.

So here's to the sun; rise my best friend, my greatest adversary.
I'll curse you for all the nights of sleep that you stole from me.
And I'll call the cops on you and you'll run away, just so you can rise another day.
Much to my dismay.

They say what goes around comes around to get you in the end
I can't believe I ever had the nerve to call you my friend.
Cause if you been treating all your friends the way that you've been treating me. I hope they all just get up and leave.

Sometimes you have to take a step back so you can view the big picture,
but you can't view the whole photo with me burning holes right through it.
I kept taking steps back until you were out of sight.
I hoped and guessed you'd let me leave and I was right.

So here's to the sun; rise my best friend, my greatest adversary.
I'll curse you for all the nights of sleep that you stole from me.
And I'll call the cops on you and you'll run away, just so you can rise another day.
Much to my dismay.

Much to my dismay.

I guess I was the special case
I wish I could've seen the look that was plastered on my face.
But I saw yours and it just made my night.
We stayed up all night, we wrote this.

So here's to the sun; rise my best friend, my greatest adversary.
I'll curse you for all the nights of sleep that you stole from me.
And I'll call the cops on you and you'll run away, just so you can rise another day.
Much to my dismay.
Track Name: (Ouroboros)
You act like you care when you can get something out of it.
You and I both know that you never gave a shit about me, about this town, about the ashes on the ground, about her, about him, about them.
The alcohol and adderall is a lethal combination.
It's a one ticket fast-pass to my eternal damnation.
My notebook's in a firepit, so many lines of wasted wit will burn with me tonight.
You'll burn with me tonight.

Broken pieces of heavy hearts are weighing on my back.
I'm dragging my feet against the ground leaving trails of regret.
You say you begin to think that I have a problem but I don't care at all.
I don't care at all.

You are just a hurricane of long-winded apologies.
Leaving all my hopes and dreams at the bottom of the sea.
Come on now and look at what you have done to me.
Don't look away.
Don't look away.
Don't look away, Don't look away, Don't look away
Don't look away, Don't look away, Don't look away

As of late I've been trying to get away from my vices cause it's gotten to the point
Now my friends pay the prices.
I really need some help keeping me from myself.
I really scare myself some days.

You are like the fog.
You hide what I should see.
I can't really blame you for hurting me.
But I'm going to anyway.
I will blame you anyway.
