Track Name: Free
Tell me things to help me see
Because I cannot get away from me
The darker side, the evil light
It’s all apart and free
The comfort zone, the evil home
They’re here and watching me
The late night ride, the pointless fight
The things that set me free

I think that waiting here is more than fair
It’s more apart of me
But what’s not there is chances that
I’ll break to set me free
I’ll only care when chances are
There’s nothing that we’ll be
But we’re not there
So wait another week and set me free

Tell me things to help me see
Because I cannot get away from me
The darker side, the evil light
It’s all apart and free
The comfort zone, the evil home
They’re here and watching me
The late night ride, the pointless fight
The things that set me free
I’ll only care when chances are
There’s nothing that we’ll be
But we’re not there
So wait another week to set me free
Track Name: I Know You
I know you
This much is true
Look at me
Catastrophe

And I wish some things would just fall right into place
Do I deserve it?
Well, that's all just in your taste

You might say
You'll have your day
Well, that's fine
What if you're lying?

Is it demanding for me to just think this way
I'm trying to be happy
I'll just take it day by day by day

And I wish some things would just fall right into place
Do I deserve it?
Well, that's all just in your taste
Is it demanding for me to just think this way?
I'm trying to be happy
I'll just take it day by day by day
Track Name: I Was There
I was there, broken stare, pay the fare
Change affairs, I don't care
But I could do better
What the fuck? What's his face
Out of luck, out of taste with the girl
I shouldn't let her
They'll come right back home to me
Then I know that I will see
I was waiting in their arms
Now I know that I am scarred

Then I am down
And I'm out of place
Then I am down
A turn of your face
Then I am down
And I'm out of place
Then I am down
Not close to you

Pay the bills, what a pill
Take a drag, have a spill, unfulfilled
There's a change in weather
Called you up, What the fuck? Now I'm stuck
Words and stuff
Brave enough to write you a letter
When I think that I am wrong
I'll pretend that I am strong
So, I'll change my point of view
So it's nothing close to you

Then I am down
And I'm out of place
Then I am down
A turn of your face
Then I am down
And I'm out of place
Then I am down
Not close to you
Track Name: Faulty Wiring
I've been thinkin' 'bout
Maybe when it comes down
You and me are gonna be taken straight down
Time to think about, even through the silent shout
In a perfect world even I would be struck down

All the faulty wiring is starting to fuck up
Dizziness and confidence and you are just stuck up
Wouldn't bet on it if all I had was just good luck
Even though it is just a game

Time to try it out even if it's filled with doubt
All I see is bitter ends and a dark cloud
Time to think about, even through the silent shout
In a perfect world even I would be struck down

All the faulty wiring is starting to fuck up
Doesn't see all his confidence then you are just stuck up
Wouldn't bet on it if all I had was just good luck
Even though it is just a game
Track Name: Pieces
Non-simple words flow to my head
So nonchalant like flower pedals
All in a breaking vine of truth
I'm hearing tones to alert zone
These mental zones that feel like home
I swear to God that I could taste you
It's something that is worth a choice
I'm breaking glass by choosing voice
And I'm not too scared to care
I'll take you

Why would I do this thing to you?
Why would I break myself into
All the little pieces there of me?
I'll only take what I can see

The outcome is regardless here
I've eaten up and spit out fear
I guess I'm just too proud to know you
And in the span of life and time
I hold few memories of mine
But drinking wine like it could be you

Pour all your troubles over me
I'm just that guy who oversees
All the little pieces there of you
We'll only do what we can do
Why would I do this thing to you?
Why would I break myself into
All the little pieces there of me?
I'll only take what I can see
Track Name: Stuck On Tragedy
I ♥ a crazy girl
And I might have met my match
But I'm uncertain, too
I know I won't get the other back
I'm stuck on tragedy
And it helps me in my head
To feel that pain again
Back in me like an old fucking friend
Track Name: Every Time
Every time that we meet like this
It just fucks me up inside
I know that it isn't right
Every time that we meet like this

Every time I see parts of you
It pins me down
I don't know what to do
Well, it just fucks me up inside
I know that it isn't right
Every time that we meet like this
Track Name: Now You Know
I'm crazy and I'm falling for you
But I don't want to control you
It's something that I feel on the inside
And nothing that I'm fueling for pride
But when I look around to the outside
I wonder what my brain looks like inside
The questions that don't have any answers
The wars, the AIDS, the guns, and the cancers
There's something that we are not doing
An issue that is worth pursuing
But when I look around to the outside
I'm pointing my finger right at that guy

I don't know and I don't care
Now you know why you are there

I'm kind of breaking down on the inside
I'm foolish and I feel like a big lie
It's nothing that I'm holding against you
But I think we some defense too
And I'm trying not to act like an asshole
But I guess that really is my main goal

I don't know and I don't care
Now you know why you are there
Track Name: Just Not What To Say
All the time in life I think that I am just so fucking insane
Come up to me, maybe baby
Tell me that it's all in my brain
And I'm sitting next to you I'll say
"I was sitting next to you that day"
All the time in life I just thought you were just so fucking unreal
Process in my brain goes to my thoughts
And then my actions to steal
And I'm sitting next to you I'll say
"I was sitting next to you that day"

I don't think that you should know

All the time in life I think that I am just so fucking insane
Come up to me, maybe baby
Tell me that it's all in my brain
And I'm sitting next to you I'll say
"I was sitting next to you that day"

I know just not what to say
Track Name: Tired & Lovely
All of this waiting it seems so unfair
I think to myself that I don't even care
Look at my life like I'm reading a book
Or watching a movie I would overlook

And you just want to be happy
Take me to heaven so I can get married
Maybe it's something that I could see through
I should look at myself like I'm you

Put me on planes and just drag me around
Cut off my smile and give me a frown
Just give me something so I can relax
Derail me now because I've gotten off track

And I could just pray to my savior
Kill all my instincts and change my behavior
This would not be fair to anyone here
I should listen before I can hear
