Track Name: Honest With Me
Why do I always end up drunk laying on my back,
Hearing songs being sung in your voice in my head.
Sometimes I wish that we were still the center of attention.
And sometimes I wish that I was the one that left.

But the truth is so far from either one.
After so much time carrying you around I can't believe I'm alone again.

Your open ended answers, should have gave it all away.
There was fire in our bones, but yours never burned for me.
You said you'd be different.
You said you'd be honest with me.
You said you'd be different.
You said you'd be honest with me.

You tried to fix things, left when you got tired.
You never really tried, never really tried, never really tried to make things right.
You take and you take and you take, you take and you take.
You take and you take and you take you throw it all away.

You said you'd be different.
You said you'd be honest with me.
You said you'd be different.
You said you'd be honest with me.
Track Name: Cold
So I heard you caught a cold, from the way that you've been spoken to.

I've been locked up in this room, staring at the ceiling, I wish there was something I could do.

Take your time for the next few weeks, stay inside and hope for better weather.

I've been around a couple times, and I've made some mistakes. This might a couple tries because I haven't slept for days.

She's scared that it's inevitable.
She says I'm just bound to change.

Take your time for the next few weeks, stay inside and hope for better weather.
Day by day. I've watched you become worn out, more now than ever.

Control yourself while you rot away.
Just turn to dust, when you're older you'll understand.

Is this killing you like it's killing me.

Take your time for the next few weeks, stay inside and hope for better weather.
Day by day. I've watched you become worn out, more now than ever.
Track Name: The Forgotten Man and His New Deal
I hate this heat. Have I already died and gone to hell.
It's a god damn shame. That I ever decided to stay here.

I can't ever sleep. So it's so easy to find myself in all the wrong parts of my mind.
And you're no help, at all

Open my eyes wide, I want to see the sun again before I die.
Pick me up off my knees, been telling myself it's over, but that ain't right.

These city streets, get more haunted every single day.
Just because I don't believe in ghosts doesn't mean I don't see my past self all the time.

Do you think it's a game or are you afraid and trying to hide from what's left of your life.
You're no help, and it's pathetic.
Track Name: Choke
Where'd you go? When the lights went out. I walked around to the backside of your house.

I'm forgetting the features you had before, and my feet don't touch the floor, I float around just like my mother does in all her nightmares.

And all I have are nightmares now.

Now where'd you go? When the day came back. Your car wasn't in the driveway when I woke up in the grass.

And what does that say about me? Or everything I've ever done. When you tell me you still love me, but it's not worth it to leave him.

I hope you think of me. Every time you pass my parents house. And know that I'm not around anymore.

I hope it fucks with your head, and that it fills you with regret. I hope you can't look back at the past three years without thinking you wasted it.

She said where'd he go? When I turned around and left. I headed back inside to cough and choke out everything in my head.

I took the turnpike to get away. Broke down fifteen miles outside of Pittsburgh I guess I'll stay here for a couple of days.

You said you don't feel anything, any more. And I know it's bullshit,

And I can't wait for the day that admit it to yourself, this is your fault.

This is your fault.

I hope you think of me. Every time you pass my parents house. And know that I'm not around anymore.

I hope it fucks with your head, and that it fills you with regret. I hope you can't look back at the past three years without thinking you wasted it.

Without thinking you wasted it.
