Track Name: The War
Honestly, I can't believe that I'm still here. Another year to fall behind my peers. The only way that I get through is know I'll never be you. I still just wish that I could make it stop. Bite down, another go around. Another day slips away, leaves me feeling tight wound. You know what I found? We've got no fucking common ground.
Track Name: Panic
I've got a list of shots I missed. Mistakes come easy to me. Anxiety, it's got a grip on me. Another night well spent writing songs in my basement. Mistakes come easy, can't you see? Panic, spit it out. Panic, tastes like doubt. Don't panic.
Track Name: Stay Alive
You're so see through. A ghost I once knew. A trick of the eye. A cheap illusion. Your only truth is your delusion. A trick that I will always despise.
Track Name: Gutted A.D.
I don't exist underneath the feet of vicious men who condemn just to sell the make believe. I guess you can't save me any more than you can part the seas. Keep looking down your nose and fucking reap what you sow. I just want you to know I can't be saved. I don't want to be anyway. I won't b e saved. I don't want to be anyway. I won't spend my time alive getting ready to die.
Track Name: Try Me
I can't tell if you're lazy or scared. One thing's for sure, you're fucking unprepared. I don't give a fuck. Either way it's time to grow up. Are you fucking kidding me? Why can't you just try?
Track Name: Always
Every second that I spend in this place makes me want to rip the skin from my face. I should have stayed locked up inside my room. Why the fuck do I always listen to you? Always gonna wish I stayed away. Every second that I spend in here feels just like the fucking slowest year. They call this a culture, but I'm not so sure. I think this might just be a cult. I want the fuck out. I can't help myself. I want the fuck out of here. Always gonna wish I stayed away.
Track Name: HGCFF
Is this fucking over before its begun? I've been down this road before. Now everything you said is just a big "fuck you". I grit my fucking teeth so hard, all because of you.
Track Name: Lessons
In a silent room, the walls come crashing down. One minute thirty three seconds of sound to change my life forever. I knew that I would never be the same. I remember it like yesterday. Things seemed so simple but we were still angry. I could feel it deep inside my bones. We'd never ever be alone. Always has been, always will be the only thing ever made sense to me. I might be screaming at a wall, but I'll give it my all.
Track Name: Stagger I
All we can do is stagger.
Track Name: Stagger II
All we can do is stagger. All we can do is stumble on and on. When we stood in the rain and you told me everything, I couldn't believe you didn't walk away. I don't know how we ended up this way. I don't know, but we've only got ourselves to blame. Give me reason. Give me relief. If all we can do is stagger, then won't you stagger with me? We'll stagger on and on.
Track Name: The Bottom
We're going down to the bottom and back. No time to think, just to over react. They say you're only what you want to be. I guess I want to be a catastrophe. Close your fingers around a stone to throw. You can linger, but it's time for me to go. Down. Down to the bottom. I'll go down to the bottom and back.
