Track Name: Repeating Faces
Every chance I get
Is a fleeting one at best
Here's what I need, it's there and so easy
Just need to take a chance
What's the worst that could happen

Repeat, I have found another way to have happy better days, been this way before
Thinkin' this all sounds the same, different time different place, mix and match these faces
Again, over again, this time it's different I swear

At the same time
This feels like the answer
It's so tempting looking in from the outside
Spend another year
And spring another trap

This time it's different I swear
This time it's different I swear
This time it's different

This time it's different I swear
This time it's different I swear
This time it's different I swear
Every time that I see these faces, the way they perceive me, the way I'm rejected, I know we don't think the same

This time it's different I swear
Track Name: Nostalgia
Blank space, a second is all I need
Far away, is it cause of me
Feeling strong, I know it's not for long
Fine one second, the next I'm up and gone

In the tall grass
Skinned knees, childhood ends
Goodbye, it's about time
Goodbye, it's almost time

In the tall grass
Skinned knees, childhood ends
Goodbye, it's about time
Goodbye, it's almost time
Track Name: Pins And Needles
Freaking out over nothing
Paranoid, it's in my head
Fat chance that I understand

Defense up briefly
Better yet, I take the blame
So sorry and I regret

Recently it's been quiet
Better now that I'm on my own
Just needed to take a breath
Track Name: Headache
Not safe in my own home, can't get out of bed
Between the walls of my skull, the dull pain that throbs again
This headaches cause of me, keeps me trapped in lonely sleep
Friends can be strangers
I flail wild in the dark

No time to reflect, look back and turn to stone
Wake up and start the day, take a walk down the hall

Can't fall asleep, won't fall asleep x5
Track Name: Three Years
Understand
Don't understand
Why I stayed

Understand
Don't understand
Why I stayed

Done feeling sorry, oh so sorry all the time
Didn't matter, who or whatever, I'd take the blame
Misplaced judgement, misplaced

It was three years without my best friends
It's time that I want back
No you won't hear, no you won't hear me bitter or mad
If anything I've learned just to be glad

It was three years without my best friends
It's time that I want back
No you won't hear, no you won't hear me bitter or mad
If anything I've learned just to be glad

Love yourself
Please love yourself
And then stay
Track Name: Epitome Of Us
Cloud covered skies
The smell of the rain in your hair is like
Feeling at home just one last time
But I know that it's a mistake

I hate that I know that my legacy is dragging you down while fueling my own selfish dreams
Only to leave you with unanswered questions and tears blurring the words on your phone

I feel so light I'm floating, a break from the day
Just for a second we seem inseparable, intertwined
All I want to think about is how I'm...

Alright...Nothing's wrong, the matter
Talked myself out of doubt
I owe too much to you

When I say that I love you, I really mean I want you to fix me
Come to substantiate that I don't really...

Care at all about you, sad but true
And have found that I have to disappear because I know, I have nothing left for you

I hate that I know that my legacy is dragging you down while fueling my own selfish dreams
Forging repentance and feigning remorse you deserve the best but I am the worst
Track Name: Uninvited Friends
Days blending together
Pain does the same
It shouldn't be like this forever
But I know that it won't change

I'm the person I
Never wanted to be
How am I supposed to
Look in the mirror and like what I see
I give up cause I
Have tried so desperately
I remember you
Have you forgotten me

Stress and consideration
I swear I've never put so much tar in my lungs
I'm left in anticipation
Depression, convulsions, and all types of drugs

I'm the person I
Never wanted to be
How am I supposed to
Look in the mirror and like what I see
I give up cause I
Have tried so desperately
I remember you
Have you forgotten me

It's 3 am and I'm wide awake
Personifying my failures and wishing they would change
But I know they won't and I'm
I'm sorry
Track Name: No Time
I kinda miss when things weren't so sure
Asking, what's the end goal of this
Sure of it, I'm on track

Static, life unfolds around me
Satisfy, impress, build for the future
It's hard to taste when it's far away

And I'm so tired
Can't get no sleep
Anymore

And I can't see
Anyone
Anymore

Driving past the old spots
I can almost taste the air
It's so surreal and not so far away

And I'm so tired
Can't get no sleep
Anymore

And I can't see
Anyone
Anymore

And I'm so tired
Can't get no sleep
Anymore
