Track Name: Home
I’ve got a lot to do
But nothing left to prove
So I won’t make a move
You’ve got a lot to say
I just stay in your way
I’ll just be in your way

Now that it’s come to this
I just want happiness
Wrapped up in selfishness
But now just as things start to change
And our lives get rearranged
I hope you don’t fade away

Because I’m feeling like I am home
Yeah now I’m feeling like I am home
Yeah now I, I feel just fine
Because I am home
I am home
Track Name: The One About The Ocean
This cold weather only makes this worse
I swear I’m trying but now I’m not so sure
If I could leave you here tonight
If I could walk away this time
If I could leave you here tonight

This ocean that’s around us
Is only tearing us apart and
I’m tired of swimming
So drift away and let me
Drown I’ll sink to the bottom let the water fill my lungs
Until my heart stops beating again

And my father says he hates the world
I’m not sure if I could ever go home
Because I’m leaving here tonight
And I won’t be back this time
Yeah I’m leaving here tonight
Track Name: Black Hole
Late last night while I was watching my TV
I saw her face it brought me back
To a time when we were on the same page with almost everything
But then she went and left

And it made me wonder what I would do
If I ever run in to you
Thanks to my black hole of a brain
There’s only one thing I could think to say
That all your new friends are fucking fake

They’re only after one thing
All those dudes are the same way
They don’t want to help
They just want to bring me down
And it’s the same with the ladies
You say they’re cool but they act so shady
It’s crystal clear they don’t want me around

So now I wonder what I would do
If I ever run in to you
Thanks to your black hole of a soul
I think that I’d just have to let you go
And just hope we’re so happy on our own
Yeah I hope we’re so happy on our own

Late last night while I was playing my guitar
I saw a light outside my door
So I put down my things and stepped out carefully in to the scene
That lay before my eyes

Now I never wonder what I should do
Because I’ve always got you to prove
That I don’t need to be afraid
There’s no more black hole deep inside my brain
And all my new friends would say the same
Yeah all my new friends would say the same
Track Name: What Sharp Teeth I Have
It takes a little bit of time
To settle in to your skin
You look the wolf in his eyes
And wonder where he’s been

And as you lose a little clothes
And slip into your bed
He shows the points of his teeth
You try to hide in the sheets

But it’s only for tonight
Yeah it’s only

It didn’t have to be so hard
To let you go
To let you go
It never had to be this hard
To let you go
To let you go

So now you’re hoping for change
And some apology
The truth is I’m afraid
I don’t have much to say

Because it was only for one night
It was only
Yeah it was only just one night
It was only

It doesn’t have to be so hard
To let me go
To let me go
It never had to be so hard
To let me go
So let me go

If there was one thing I could change
I would have never let you stay
Track Name: For The Record (feat. Nathan Hardy)
For the record I’m doing better
But I still hate it when I see you both together
Because you once were mine before
But now you’ve gone and found someone who’s more mature
It’s for the better that I just forget her
I’ve been reminded since the day I met her
That I’m meant to be alone
I swear it feels like I am on a sinking boat
Is it just me am I a problematic
Because every time I start to feel fantastic
Something comes along
And sets fire to the places I call home

I’ll try to watch my tone
But this tongue is not my own
I’ll try to hold my throne
But this life is not my own

Don’t you try and laugh this off
Or blame her for what is your fault
You’ve known since you were three feet tall
One day you’d end up all alone
So let this go
Track Name: Gummy Vitamins
Thank God for gummy vitamins
My diet consists of fast food red smokes dirty coke and Jameson
And I’m sick
I’m sick
Work hard to try and pay the rent
My mind is always spent
From long nights, tired drives I’ll probably die from all of them
I can’t win
I can’t win

When I lost all hope
I thought I was gonna die alone
But you took my hand
And dragged me through the mud and the sand
To see the sun come up

Thank God my body still exists
Without you I’d have missed
A whole life spent living full of joy and happiness
I’m not sick
I’m not sick

When I lost all hope
I thought I was gonna die alone
But you took my hand
And dragged me through the mud and the sand
When I lost all hope
I knew I was gonna die alone
But you took my hand
And dragged me through the mud and the sand
To see the sun come up
Track Name: Tune It Out
I have been waiting for someone to save me
From the way I have been feeling lately
I do wait for you
I have been thankful that God doesn’t hate me
For all the dumb shit I do on the daily
I do hope that’s true

I have been given a new type of vision
One that is greater than all your religion
I do see through you
Right through you
Right through you

You say how could someone like me
Be given a second chance
I say somebody like you
Just needs to listen
To what has been screaming inside of your heart now for a long time
But you tune it out

It’s been a while now since I’ve had to worry
Ever since you came to rewrite my story
I do follow you
Only you
Only you

You say how could someone like me
Be given a second chance
I say somebody like you
Just needs to listen
To what has been screaming inside of your heart now for a long time
But you tune it out
Track Name: Everyone Who Loses Is Sorry
I’ve been waiting for your call
Should have never bothered
To write the same old songs
Got your hands around my throat
Squeeze your fingertips
Till they seal up every breath of air that I have
I’ve been dreaming for too long
It’s time to act now
Get up off my ass and find my way back to those
Places that I have always known
Would have so much to offer
We just hadn’t bothered to hit the road

Got yourself a ball of hope
And you think it’ll last you
Through the winter but it’s barely big enough
To wrap its’ arms around your fragile frame
And keep you warm
You should know it won’t at all

So picture us we’re naked in your cell
An empty apartment
On the carpet feeling nauseous from those drugs
You offered up with alcohol
Then you took my body
Spun it tightly sank your teeth into my skull

You’ve got me face in the grass
Hands tied my back
Breaks in the fall
You’re coming back
I scream you laugh
You’ll bring me down
Track Name: It's Called Soccer And I Don't Care
It’s taken me three long years
To come to terms with the way things are
Between you and I
And I know we’ve tried to save it all
But we just can’t make it
We just won’t make it now

And we’ve sold your soul
For a bag of gold along the way
Along the way
And we gave our love
For some broken hopes and restless dreams
Restless dreams
Track Name: Just Fine
I know I know you’re feeling down but
It’s gotta gotta gotta get better
I know I know you’ve been so down boy

Everything will be just fine
Everything will be just fine

Well I know I know you’re feeling down but
It’s gotta gotta gotta get better it will
And I know I know you’ve been so down but

Everything will be just fine
Everything is gonna be just fine
I know everything will be okay in time
In time
Track Name: Be So Kind
Would you please just stop talking
For once I’ve heard enough
You’re always preaching the same tired shit to me
Feel like I’m losing touch
And would it kill you to call me
Once in a while
I haven’t heard your voice in months it seems
Feels like I’m under trial

But would you be so kind as to
Make sure that I’m the one that leaves with you
I’d rather die than watch you walk away
To see you leave with someone new

Could you please just stop talking
Could you please just stop talking

Would you please start explaining
Why you’re always on the run
I look away just for a second woe is me
Look back to see you’ve gone

But would you be so kind as to
Make sure that I’m the one that leaves with you
I’d rather die than watch you walk away
To see you leave with someone new

Would you please just stop talking
Would you please just stop talking

It’s not that I don’t love you
It’s just that I’m too much a mess
To be your woman right now all I want for me is what is best
So you could wait forever
Or you could move on with your life
Mend your heart and find another one tonight

But will you please just stop talking
Would you please just stop talking
Track Name: Tired Of Waiting For Something That's Nothing
I’m tired of waiting for you
Because every time you walk away my heart it breaks a little more
And now I’ve been frustrated lately
Because all this time you had me thinking our love would never die
But you lied
You lied
And I’m not even surprised

I’m having trouble sleeping
Because every time I close my eyes it takes me to a better time
When you and I were something special
But now I sit alone with nothing to show for what we’ve done
Goodbye
Goodbye
I’ve had it with your lies
Goodbye

It’s been two weeks
And I still can’t think with all these problems in my head
But now I know
How to be alone

You try
To run
Without me
Without me
Baby you know
If you go
You doubt me
You doubt me
Baby you try…
