Track Name: Ghost
Making no sense of it all, Like the poison that runs through these walls
Watch my body break down at the thought of your call
Make me feel like I’m nothing at all

It’s nice to know you cared, But that won’t ever get me anywhere
And I care more about the times, When I was young enough to feel
Though it gets hard enough, I just don’t feel like giving up without you here

Just Killing Time, and I’ll play it over every night and I will never get this right
Will you try, to sever all the empty ties beneath my sorry state of mind

I’ll wait around to watch you keep on holding on, while you torture me and tell me that I’m wrong
It’s nice to know you cared, But that shit won’t ever get me anywhere

Just Killing Time, and I’ll play it over every night and I will never get this right
Will you try, to sever all the empty ties beneath my sorry state of mind
Beneath my sorry state of mind

Send my condolences to God, cause I’m already dead
And I would probably settle down but I’m stuck in my head
I’m just a mirror of a Ghost sometimes
Born a Cynic, not a saint, and I will go down swinging
Track Name: Brain Dead
When life gets harder, and the voices scream inside your head
Don’t hyperventilate just take your pills instead
I won’t make up my mind, cause all my apathy takes so much time
Yeah I’ve got has-been habits, but you might as well enjoy the ride

Maybe I don’t care who I wanna be, you know it never really mattered to me
Rip out your soul, cause all your ignorance takes so much toll
But Maybe I don’t care who I wanna be, you know it never really mattered to me
Flex another moral instead, it won’t sink in, It Wont

I’ve tried so many times, to make a living but we’re all just born to die
it’s not so optimistic, way out of college but that never helped fix it

It’s not dumb, to feel it’s out of your hands
And I’ll try, to make amends where I can
But don’t hold your breath this time
I’m gonna beat myself up until I fall off by the way side

Maybe I don’t care who I wanna be, you know it never really mattered to me
Rip out your soul, cause all your ignorance takes so much toll
But Maybe I don’t care who I wanna be, you know it never really mattered to me
Flex another moral instead, it won’t sink in, It Wont
Track Name: Barely Human
I think ill call it off today, one more Week is all that’s left of us so not like it would matter anyway
You say you’re down but not enough to make you stay
Don’t watch me as I choke on my goodbyes
No I wont meet you in the end, some things they don’t make sense

Im barely Human now, Found I’m better off with sinking deep in my own stomping ground
Now I know what it feels like to live in my head
Ive been giving up for years, I won’t think about a word you ever said
So go to hell, cause it gets lonely here sometimes, So go to hell with it

The feeling passed about a half an hour ago
I can’t recall a day that I have felt much worse
Said my goodbyes, to the ones that never tried, whilst they wrap around my neck so tight

So when you go, down write back. Ill be grateful for that
Wasting my own precious time, on things that we all leave behind
I’m barely Human now, Found I'm better off with sinking deep in my own stomping ground
Now I know what it feels like to live in my head
I’ve been giving up for years, I won’t think about a word you ever said

So go to hell, cause it gets lonely here sometimes, and I can meet you while I further my decline
A little help along the way, cause it has never been a good ride

You wouldn’t wait a single day for me, so now I’ll wait whilst you fade to a memory

Give it all away. Waste another day
Track Name: Rotten Lungs
'cause now you can't say that you're alone,
and nothing changes when you don't pick up the phone.
and now you're ticking like a time-bomb, and it’ll go wrong, nothing's ever beat a broken home.

and you're way above the rest,
but you're cynical at best.

they say you've been sleeping half the night to get your head screwed on but you've got nowhere to run
diggin in your heels and forgetting how to feel's not the only feeling that you've ever loved

WOAAHH

diggin in your heels and forgetting how to feel's not the only feeling that you've ever loved

I'm not around to drag you down,
when you wake up you're safe and sound.
You're not around to drag me down,
the weight will pull me under
Track Name: Arteries
Cause im dumb, call it what you want its killing me
I lie awake in bed at night but it just works right for me
It’s no fun, living with false security
When I can spin another lie and watch the world pass easily

The drugs wont work at all, they’re just chemicals
Spun out and comatosed

I Think im burning out now, ill never calm down
Up in my room im safe and sound
Cause a little bit of Self-Doubt, Is what Im all about, im never coming down
So ill burst another Artery, and go another round
So I’m never burning out now, until I calm down, im never coming round

And I know, its better to console, but my mind would overdose
It helps to tie me over, and its nice to know
That all my best friends, they’ll come around
Confused, Content, but freak me out,
My best made plans can wait another day

I Think im burning out now, ill never calm down
Up in my room im safe and sound
Cause a little bit of Self-Doubt, Is what Im all about, im never coming down
So ill burst another Artery, and go another round
So I’m never burning out now, until I calm down, im never coming round

Making up for everyone’s another fault of mine
I can hardly argue with the ones I leave behind
Track Name: Sympathy
I feel contagious. Im dying more everyday
Ive never had much fun kicking up a fuss yeah anyway
Ill let it wreck my mind but im not giving up
Took enough time for the penny to drop

I never mind my own company
When you’re all alone its safer than it seems

Collate my thoughts around my head, and beat them out instead
Cause they’ll never be much Sympathy when you control your company

If we cant get along, then why am I so cold
I know I make it harder on myself
And you can make a note, of every word I’ve wrote then hope I go and throw it all away
And that’s okay, and honestly

Collate my thoughts around my head, and beat them out instead
Cause they’ll never be much Sympathy when you control your company
Track Name: Medicate
Is it evident, the way I always compromise my health
I’ve been so near to thinking clear I don’t care for no one else
Im on top of it, and I can always medicate myself
And I won’t stop until I get caught, so I guess that this cements it

My eyes feel brighter when im inside, your smile keeps sobering up
Ive been told im comatosed and life is what you make it

Vacant inside tear my heart apart and stitch up my eyes
Im my own worst enemy sometimes but Ill be fine if I sit and pass the time
So sick of feeling dumb and being blind
And im losing my mind

And it never ends, ive been a burden now for far too long
15 years of thinking clear and brain dead at 21
But ill never quit, I know I always seem to bite my tongue
All we do is talk it through but I never meant to vent it
My eyes feel brighter when im inside, your smile keeps sobering up
Ive been told im comatosed and life is what you make it

Vacant inside tear my heart apart and stitch up my eyes
Im my own worst enemy sometimes but Ill be fine if I sit and pass the time
So sick of feeling dumb and being blind
If im losing my mind I might as well try

To have a long term better plan, and know that I can make my own decisions even if I cant
Its been years since ive been thinking straight, pick me up and motivate
She said, its been a long time coming but you’ve fucked it up again
Track Name: Emma-Lynn
Face it, it’s over now
I’ve been a long Six months, I’ve worked it out somehow
I wouldn’t change it, though its as bad as its ever been
I’ll never go and settle down, it don’t sound so interesting

Maybe I’m getting by, and maybe that’s just fine
I’ll wait around while you talk about the guys

Emma-Lynn, so why you gotta get inside my head again
I hope it hurts to know that I’m alright here in the end
You’re probably better of dead, inside my head

You always said, I was a let-down you were wrong
And I would have bite my tongue
It doesn’t matter what im into, too much of you is never good enough but i..
Maybe I don’t want to talk about goodbyes, or how you miss me

Emma-Lynn, so why you gotta get inside my head again
I hope it hurts to know that I’m alright here in the end
Emma-Lynn. So why you gotta go and play the pessimist
Im old enough to know that im not getting over it

And you need this too, you always do

Maybe I don’t want to talk about goodbyes, or how you miss me

Emma-Lynn, so why you gotta get inside my head again
I hope it hurts to know that I’m alright here in the end
Emma-Lynn. So why you gotta go and play the pessimist
Im old enough to know that im not getting over it
Track Name: Nothing Matters If You Try
Sometimes I lie around and I can barely feel my face
I’m sick and tired of always being the guy to put me in my place

Better yet don’t forget
That nothing matters if you try

Quick fix, yeah you already know that I just can’t bare to go slow
Give me a little bit of time and I will hold it up against you

And you’ll find, that all the time im mostly miserable at best
My food is getting cold, im told my thoughts would get me out this mess
Show me a better way to feel and I’ll work it out
To fuel the fire in my veins and cure my doubts

Put to rest all the thoughts in my head
Do you ever get the feeling somethings wrong?

Better yet don’t forget
That nothing matters if you try
Quick fix, yeah you already know that I just can’t bare to go slow
Give me a little bit of time and I will hold it up against you
And someday, you’ll be sleeping alone, but I just cant bare to go slow
Give me a little bit of time and I will hold it up against you

Make it out alive
Track Name: Rented Space
You made it clear, you played your hand the other night
No way back, I must have been out of sight
You’re too far gone from all the places you call home
But that’s the way it is, I’d rather die here alone
The Hardest Part, is never giving up

If you’re a diamond in the rough, then I don’t feel like coming up
Same sound, so overrated. I won’t Participate in
Think back to when we got along, like I anticipated
Take time to work out the flaws, and I can isolate it

You’re losing touch with everyone you used to know
Jet Black Heart and you’ve got nothing to show
And for my peace of mind, I hope you’ll be just fine
Cause that’s the way itll be, and ive got nothing to hide
The Hardest Part, is never giving up

If you’re a diamond in the rough, then I don’t feel like coming up
Same sound, so overrated. I won’t Participate in
Think back to when we got along, like I anticipated
Take time to work out the flaws, and I can isolate it

We all have the choices to make in our lives
No looking back from the dead 9 to 5
Words from the mouth that you rented
Am I the only one?
If you’re a diamond in the rough, then I don’t feel like coming up
Same sound, so overrated. I won’t Participate in
Think back to when we got along, like I anticipated
Take time to work out the flaws, and I can isolate it
Track Name: Cynic
Cause I feel sick, Sick to death of all
I’ve heard it all before, to wake up in the worlds enough but I just want more
Uncomfortable at times, and barely getting by
To put it down to luck is half the reason I get stuck

Yeah we don’t talk about the weather much these days
I’m not young or dumb enough to argue anyway
Or I wouldnt care enough to try
Cause im a wreck I swear I don’t fit in, im losing touch with everything tonight

I feel numb, Scared of what’s to come
And making up for everything and everyone I’ve hurt along the way is no fun
It’s hard enough to try, to be the bigger guy
When wasted opportunities are playing on my mind

Yeah we don’t enough about the world these days
I’m not young or dumb enough to argue anyway
Or I wouldn’t care enough to try
Cause I’m a wreck I swear I don’t fit in, I’m losing touch with everything
Smoke clears up inside my head,
I promise I won’t feel a thing again

Yeah we don’t enough about the world these days
I don’t give a fuck enough to argue anyway
And ill never care enough to try
Cause I’m a wreck I swear I don’t fit in, I’m losing touch with everything
Smoke clears up inside my head,
I promise I won’t feel a thing again
