Track Name: Second Thoughts
You know why I had to go
Because these second thoughts fell out the window
And all I wanted was for you to keep your word
And the biggest mistake of it all
Was to put my faith in these kinds of people
It's getting old and I know you'll never change
Because its been so long with all my time
And I've done the same thing a fucking hundred times
If your all just here to waste my time
Then I'm never coming back

So can you be honest
Am I stuck in this part of the town
Where they didn't want us
So can you be honest am I part of the ground and cement where they all stepped on us

This city's too God damn small
There's no room to escape from these ignorant people
The only one you can rely on is yourself
It feels like I came so far
But these past five years have been a fucking nightmare
I know I'm just a hollow shell of what I once was
Because it's been so long with all my time
And I've done the same thing a fucking hundred times
And if this worlds too proud to make things right
Than I'm never coming back

So can you be honest am I stuck in this part of the town where they didn't want us
So can you be honest am I part of the ground and cement where they all stepped on us

It's been so long
I feel too old to be this young

So can you be honest am I stuck in this part of the town where they just don't want us
So can you be honest am I part of the ground and cement where they all stepped on us
So can you be honest why am I stuck in this part of the town where they all forgot us
So man up and be honest why does it feel this part of ourselves was just taken from us?
Track Name: Separate
I'm not screwed up or useless or nearly this stupid
So why can't I just find some better solutions to this
Don't single me out and untangle my threads
Cause I can't be put back together again

I'm just a step until I'm hanging off the edge
I feel more at home beside my concrete bed
You always get through my head the lies through your teeth are as real as it gets

Because there's no communication
You haven't listened to a single word I've said
I can't escape all this frustration
And I can't force myself to play a part of this

Can't bury my flaws
Or focus my rage
On something productive to get through the day
These holes in my chest
Just should not exist
You single me out cause I'm not like the rest

I get the point I'm wrong you think you're always right
But you are not the one who doesn't sleep at night
How impatient I am I can barely stand in this hole that you put me in

Because there's no communication
All my life I've been caught up in your web The constant lack of motivation and I can't force myself to play a part of this

Save Yourself

I found comfort keeping distance
You'll never know what's really running through my head
There's no joy in isolation
But it's better than your empty promises

Every step I take is always by myself
I did everything without your fucking help
I am who I am rather be by myself than let the wrong person in

Because there's no communication
You haven't listened to a fucking word I've said
I can't escape all this frustration
And I can't force myself to play a part of this

Because there's no communication
All my life I've been caught up in your web The constant lack of motivation
The only thing left to do is separate

Separate

Separate
Track Name: Make Something Out Of Nothing
It's such a shame how modern life's become this protest
I never claimed to love a place where I felt hopeless
I used to choke at the thought of your false promise
But I refuse to take abuse from the dishonest
Cause that's how you play
Doesn't mean that we're the same
I won't let you have your way
One day you will know where I came from


One of these tired days
You'll run out of luck
And you'll look at all you've done
And see who you've become
And you won't think the same
Because your eyes were shut
I might hate everything
But I still get back up


How do we escape from the pain that keep our brains distorted
I never claimed to love a place that I was forced in
I wrote the lines and chose the cast to my own story
I'll never wait for someone else to make my mind up for me
I don't care what you say
Somewhere I'm crawling out of my grave
I'm aware of past mistakes
I'm too strong, too tough to lose


One of these tired days
You'll run out of luck
And look at all you've done
And see who you've become
And you won't think the same
Because your eyes were shut
I might hate everything
But I still get back up
Sometimes it's better not to bitch and argue
But most days you really have to
Just remember all the shit you've gone through
Don't let them get the best of you
And anythings better than being hopeless
Just don't follow any script they wrote us
I have a hundred reasons why you should focus
You won't know until you try


One of these days I'll be enough
One of these days I'll be enough
I'll make something out of nothing


One of these tired days
you'll run out of luck
And you'll look at all you've done
And see who you've become
And you won't think the same
because your eyes were shut
I might hate everything
But I still get back up
Sometimes it's better not to bitch and argue
But most days you really have to
Just remember all the shit you've gone through
Don't let them get the best of you
Anythings better than being hopeless
Just don't follow any script they wrote us
I have a hundred reasons why you should focus
You won't know until you try

I'll make something, out of nothing
Track Name: Double Windows
One day when I make an escape
I know I won't regret
What I had to do
To get to where I am
All this fucked up shit
Burn holes inside my head
I just don't care anymore
And nothing makes much sense

Every moment that I wanted to break
My feet were on the ground
Every thing I create
Slowly destroyed itself
I fucking paid my dues.
Don't owe you anything
Try walking in my shoes
Before you give up on me

I'm looking through these double windows
At the ghost of an old reflection.
It's like a stain hanging onto the glass
For a second I feel at home
I hate how life leaves you cold and empty
It's so hard not to feel exhausted
I know the world isn't out to get me
I just don't know why you're so selfish

Every moment that I wanted to break my feet were on the ground
Everything I create
Slowly destroyed itself
Why do I hate so much
Why do I feel so numb
If you're fucking up your life
You're not the only one
I fucking paid my dues
Don't owe you anything
Try walking in my shoes
Before you give up on me
