Track Name: Everything is Your Fault
I'm surrounded by the people that I didn't want to be, but I'm too fucked up to care, this bottle's burning inside of me
I've gotten a broken heart and veins of lead from all you did
ten thousand broken promises from when we were just kids
whoa oh oh
I'm so sick and tired of being tired, I don't sleep much anymore
just toss and turn oblivion with thoughts I can't ignore
personal anxieties, the fear of being wrong
nothing to be done, so I wrote this fucking song
whoa oh oh
I hate to admit it, but every word I write comes to me with you mind, the truth I can't deny
words come out without me knowing how they got to this page
it's the same shitty poetry for forever and a day
whoa oh oh
now I've got a killer headache
it's the kind that real kills
Track Name: Everyone's Fine, Alright?
I'm so scared of getting older that I can't even live right now
the fear's taking over me, I can't force it out
like waves crashing on sleepless nights
like a movie that doesn't end
time's ticking and bombs exploding, I try to pretend
that I'm alright
am I alright?
my whole life I kind of figured I'd be somewhere else by now
but no collar and an empty wallet have somehow sought me out
so I'm clinging to the endless memories that keep my breath alive
I write songs, screaming words, cause I don't wanna die
am I alright?
I guess I'm doing fine
are you alright?
you're doing fine
I'm so scared of getting older that I can't even live right now.
Track Name: Struggle Strong
You slit your wrist just to feel that you'll never be alone
you take a pill to forget this place you once called home
take a dive in a lake, hold your breath till you can't take it anymore
your body swells, you're kissing hell
but it's all that you can do to try to get a grip
you've seen shrinks and ministers, but none of them gives a shit
cause they don't know where you've been
they don't know who you are
so you struggle on, you struggle strong
you've given up on your friends, you don't need them anyway
don't pick up their phones, who gives a shit?
you're better off anyway
sworn off God, where's he been?
he hasn't come knocking down your door
dead's dead, there's no turning back
there's no turning back
and it's all you can do to try to get a grip
you've seen shrinks and ministers, but none of them gives a shit
cause they don't know where you've been
they don't know who you are
so you struggle on, you struggle strong
I try to tell you "you'll be fine. just doing time. you'll be fine."
Track Name: Plastics
"Take it as it comes" is what I keep telling myself
but for how long will this reassure my ever growing doubts?
is this what I've earned? I've got a degree and everything
is this all I'm worth? this bills don't pay themselves
this is frustration, this is apathy
it's plain to me that I'll never escape my constant anxiety
this is not who I am
sitting alone and watching tv for hours on end
I don't even call my friends anymore
so let's pretend that we're all somewhere else
and we're all still friends just like when we were kids
this is frustration, this is apathy
it's plain to me that we'll never escape our constant anxieties
this is frustration, this is misery (missouri)
we're getting older, and we rot in our defeat.
Track Name: The Ocean, In My Dreams
Staring at the ocean in my dreams
taste the salt, feel the breeze
remind me of a better time, an easy time, no responsibility
just childhood dreams about being older
about being bolder
about falling in love and giving it up
things come and gone, romances made up
so just being a kid, I wanna go there again
sandcastles and sunburns, I wanna be there again
it was prank phone calls and hanging out at the mall
we were all best friends without a care in the world
it was believing in God, believing in something
we were all so sure we all had a purpose
now where's our purpose?
now it's dead-end jobs and crappy apartments
hanging out in bars, wondering where our lives went
now friendships are faded, we don't see each other
scattered around, how could we see each other?
no one knows each other anymore.
