Track Name: Empty Back Seat
You messed with my head, you played me again
I miss who you were, but not who you are
I was so naive, I thought i could trust you
But I should have trusted “don’t let her in"

If you wanna hear my voice, hear it in these songs
Cause I won’t waste another breath on you
Trying to figure out where it went wrong
I’m stuck in the nights in the back of my car
Where we came so close, yet still so far

Maybe I can forgive, but I’ll never forget
I’m still trying to clean up this mess
The one that I was left with inside
Of the confusing feelings I’ve trying to hide

If you wanna hear my voice, hear it in these songs
Cause I won’t waste another breath on you
Trying to figure out where it went wrong
I’m stuck in the nights in the back of my car
Where we came so close, yet still so far

If you wanna hear my voice, hear it in these songs
Cause I won’t waste another breath on you
Trying to figure out where it went wrong
I’m stuck in the nights in the back of my car
Where we came so close, yet still so far
Track Name: Breakdown In Primetime
Please tell me there’s more than this
Because I don’t want to exist
If all there is is power-hungry greed
Where money is how you succeed

I’ll smash the TV
Shut off the channels
Cause I’m sick of all these 15 minute idols
The ones that run this show
Corrupt the world we know

Cause when you’re 16 and pregnant
You know you have to admit
That you made a mess of your life
But you were never taught that it’s not right

I’ll smash the TV
Shut off the channels
Cause I’m sick of all these 15 minute idols
The ones that run this show
Corrupt the world we know

Sell your soul
Give up your morals
And get plastic surgery
To look more like me
Hate who you are
Want more and more
Tell off your friends
Gossip about them
Just so you’ll be
A little more like
The ones you worship
The ones you wanna be

The ones that run this show
They’re now all we know
The ones that run this show
And make you miserable
Track Name: Shark Week
I met you on Friday
On Saturday you loved me
By Sunday you hated me
On Monday I meant nothing
One week later
You’ve come back running
And you said
“I didn’t mean to leave you hanging”

Can you please be the same way you were today
When I wake up tomorrow?

When it comes to you and me
There’s no such thing as consistency
All I can expect is a broken heart
Then be brought back to the start
Fall for you all over again
Til you tell me that we’re just friends
Just when I finally move on
You’ll try and jump back in my arms

Can you please be the same way you were today
When I wake up tomorrow?
Cause yesterday
You said you weren’t like the others
Track Name: Across State Lines
As I’m crossing these state lines
I remember when we wanted to move here
We were young and stupid, we were talking forever
I was set on it,
But your hand was on the door I guess we know who loved who more
I lost the last two years of my life
After thinking I finally got it right

I still think of you. Do you still think of me, too?
And even after all this time
It’s still hard to think I’ll never get to call you mine
Ever again

I hope you know my jacket won’t keep you warm as I did.
And your letter? I finally tossed it.
Just for the illusion I can finally move forward
Even though I’m always stuck in reverse
Track Name: Thinner Than Water
The storm’s coming in,
You’re home again
the tension is there
But still I’m not scared
This time around, I’ll stand my ground
Swing at me, I’ll tear you down

You say you quit but you’ll never admit
the bottle’s open and you’re drinking again
Take a hit and clench your fist
And blame your problems on the rest of us
You trade a bruised face for a broken heart
Empty promises and lonely nights
Not caring who’s by your side
As long as you’re between someone’s thighs

Tear me down to save yourself
And tell me you wish I was someone else
I may hate myself, but I’m better than you
So straighten up and get a clue
Track Name: Intentions
I dreamt of you again
So tell me what it means
Cause I thought I was over you
But I guess that deep down I know I'm still a wreck

I still miss you even after
You lied and said that we'd last forever
And then I found out forever don't exist
It's just used to fake your purpose

Every day I still wonder how we went so wrong
Now I sit here, here at home, where I wrote to you those songs

If I don't love you then why does it hurt every time I look at your picture?
Or read your letter, the one you wrote me trying to tell me how you felt?
Cause I just need something to fill the void that remains in my chest
From when you left
Track Name: Half A Year Lost
It’s been six months
But you’re still haunting me
Just last night
I saw you in my dreams
I waited two weeks
I waited two years for you
Every word I said
Everything I felt was true

If time heals everything
That’s why I haven’t felt a thing
Just numb me so the pain subsides
And I don’t stay awake at night
Wondering what could have been
Of what you promised me back then

That song still takes me back in time
To the time I made you mine
The night of our first kiss
And the night we lost our inncocence
But that image still haunts my head
Every time I look at my bed
I see my wasted youth
But at least it was wasted with you

If time heals everything
That’s why I haven’t felt a thing
Just numb me so the pain subsides
And I don’t stay awake at night
Wondering what could have been
Of what you promised me back then

If time heals everything
That’s why I haven’t felt a thing
Just numb me so the pain subsides
And I don’t stay awake at night
Wondering what could have been
Of what you promised me back then
Track Name: Morphine
Why don't I feel anymore
I used to hurt, I miss the pain
At least i could feel
Something was real
These past few months I've been so numb
You'll all come and go, it's a fact I’ve learned
I'm not good enough to keep you around

I never wanted to get used to this
This constant feeling of emptiness

These sleepless nights have become normal
Loneliness lives inside my heart
No one should feel like they’re alone
And have no place they feel at home

I just wanted to feel no pain
But now I don't feel anything
I guess it worked all too well
Cause now I live in my own hell
Track Name: Confused
Before you came along I was so sure of how I felt
But after all you did now it’s too hard to tell
All I know is I miss the way things used to be
Back at the time there was a you and me

Hold on
She said
“You’re not the only one in my head
You’re just
A number like the rest
You used to be the one
But now those days are gone”
I feel so used
So why am I so confused?

After all your lies, I can finally see
Now that you’re gone, you’ve restored my clarity
And if you hear this and wonder how I am
I’m fine as long as I never hear from you again

I’ll toss the t-shirt
Along with pictures
And all those memories
That once were gold
Just like I thought that you were
Until you fired what you had
And put a hole in this ship
And now I hope you drown
Track Name: Broken Kids, Broken Hearts, And Broken Homes
A messed up kid from broken homes
I always end up on my own
I push everything that I love away
But once I realize, it's too late
Who would want me in their life?
I'm just a drag who's never right
A boy who can't look himself in the mirror
Made up of everything he fears

Every time I find happiness I push it away
I say I'm good, but I'm never okay

A broken kid from messed up homes
I'm better off on my own
I shoot my wings before I fly
I always assume it's too late to try
I spend my nights on my bedroom floor
Thinking about who I don't have anymore
But one day this will end
I think right now, I'm on the mend
Track Name: A Day In The Life
6 feet of empty space
150 pounds of dead weight
Would you notice if I was gone?
Would you notice what went wrong?
I'm just a burden on your shoulders
That's only gotten heavier as I've got older
If I wasn't around
Would you call me to see what went down?

You mean so much to me
Please don't be taken away

It’s my time to be set free
From all my pain and misery
I’ve held on all these years
It’s time to do what I’ve always feared
It’s time to end this tragedy
The one that you call me

You mean so much to me
Please don't be taken away
