Track Name: Up Late
Outside with the light from a lantern
Tripping over the bar where I set my standards
Let it all become
The epitome of a night with good fun
Spending money without a profit
More fingers on my hands than cash in my pockets
The laughter's loud and toxic

Chorus:
Stories of the glories parents in their forties
They have a lot to tell but I'm not listening well
To all the warnings mistakes are rewarding
As far as I can tell (2x)
we're growing up young

Evenings full of harsh words and banter
Higher than the bar where I set my standards
Not at all withdrawn
The basement again with all the good songs
Your faces, I can hardly look at
Between all of the drinks and smiles and snap backs
I never want to leave
(I never fucking want to leave here)

Chorus (1x)

We're growing up young

Up late no regrets
Feel no shame for sleeping on the floor again
Last call place your bets
I don't think I'm ever coming home again (2x)

Chorus (1x)
Track Name: Car Door
We lay far in the back of the hotel safe in my car with the back row down
Here's the lines I should not say
I fear my mind is stuck on replay

Like back when you would stand in the way of the car door
You'd beg me to stay we could take it farther
You said you felt a way and I felt it harder
Conclusions we write with a fight at your dorm

Chorus:
But it's leaving me to be the one to break my own fall
Left with the recoil as its presence is clawing at my jaw
One more say is another way to pass it
One more fragment to leave in the pass tense

You set the stage for a scene with no hope
The script is fading and the lights they follow
The lines obscene and unfair
A dream in your eyes for me a nightmare

Fate lies violent through the bedroom door
Where I find you both lying on the bedroom floor
All the signs misread all the lies ignored
Insides are turning my eyes are burning

I'll take step back and fall lost from rhythm
Like a heart attack with no second chances given
A psychopath when I say "I swear I'll kill the kid"
I take it back now I see you'll never be worth it

Chorus (1x)

It's all in pieces, it's on me
I wanna say I'm sorry
And to pieces, were falling
I'm telling you I'm sorry

Chorus (1x)

I'm left to break my fall, I'm not the one at fault
Track Name: Thank you, Buddy
If I could only hear out of these ears
Flashes of insecurity leave me in tears
Weaving bad social strands with all my peers
Held back from success because of these fear

I can't seem to get my life together
Every time I pick things up, they trickle through my hands like sand
(my hands like sand)
I guess this personality sickness will last forever
If only one of you could hold my attention span

Your pain's real
Mine always has been
Can you feel
It's like your mentality's flawed
Your made of steel
You lack the common sense to feel the slightest lick of sympathy
You mean absolutely nothing to me now

Your life's perfection leads to misdirection
Like myself you strive for connection
But with your relations come no inspiration
Don't tell me that your actions hold any reason

When everything seems to fall apart
I still hang onto the parts to stay in tact
(to stay in tact)
We were best friends, your betrayal cut
Deeper then the problems you attempted to treat equal

Your pain's real
Mine always has been
Can you feel
It's like your mentality's flawed
Your made of steel
You lack the common sense to feel the slightest lick of sympathy
You mean absolutely nothing to me now

You can find me
In the darkest corner
Bereft of drive and
Left a hoarder
Of the feelings I
Have left to gather
And your to late to be seen a friend (2x)
I implore you keep distance from me
(so stay the fuck away from me)

Your pain's real
Mine always has been
Can you feel
It's like your mentality's flawed
Your made of steel
You lack the common sense to feel the slightest lick of sympathy
You mean absolutely nothing to me now
Track Name: Adhesive Strip
You heard me on the phone
You know I'm all alone
Trying to cope with everything you said to me
I'll let you off the hook
Don't take a second look
The embarrassment is absolutely killing me
Remember when we layed
On monday afternoons
Now I barely even talk to you
I swear I'll quit
Admit your sick

Chorus:
Adhesive strip, lose it's grib on me and you
I think I'm falling in to
Another hole, I guess I'll just go
I guess I'll go drown with you
ooh ohh
I guess I'll go drown with you

I heard you crying out
Cursing at the clouds
Begging for a better hand
Atonement is a gift
Reparation isn't quick
You're a liar and you'll pay for this
You want me to forgive
But these things just take time
And there never seems to be quite enough
You say it's luck
I don't give a fuck

Chorus (1x)
Track Name: Stability
Could I ask for some much needed sleep
The moans from your room serve to defeat
My eyes from closing and your drinks from ruining
Every single thing we have sought to keep
Your promises are dirtied, and your assurances are cheap
Don't cry out your apologies they mean nothing to me
Your a knife cut deeper into the skin, can you see
That being passed out on the floor holds no worth
To anyone, to me
Just be who you said you can be

I thought this would be easier
I was wrong
You haven't been here
For so long

Chorus:
My hope rises from the ashes of every event you burn down
Callous some may say, but I know you are lost waiting to be found
Clinically unpredictable
Condescending, unreliable


My sleepless nights are a figment of the past
But the fear that your swig won't be your last
Fills my mind like a flame, one that catches much to fast
Saying that you've changed is just not enough
I can't refute you , I'm just not that tough
Questioning every statement spewed from your mouth
my time with you has involved so much doubt
The blame is on you, and on you alone, opportunities were wasted
And every chance with me, you had is blown

I thought this would be easier
I was wrong
You haven't been here
For so long

Chorus(1x)

Interlude~

Chorus(1x)
Track Name: Members Only
The distance from the street sign to your door
seemed to stretch on so much longer than before
And the steps I used to climb as a child
Seemed to diminish with the events that arise

Chorus:
All you left was a knife and no letter
(I've been saying rest in peace, I've been saying rest in peace)
I could have helped, I could have done much better
(I don't think I'll ever sleep, I don't think I'll ever sleep)
Now I'm stuck wearing your old sweater
I can't remember what you said, i can't get you out of my head
I think i'll put it on regardless of the weather

Call me empty but I'm not hallow
Cut ties with guilt and fucking swallow
The pain you feel, it won't dwindle like a fire
Dying slowly I am so damn lonely
Without you here
I can't seem to face my fears
Because you taught me how to be a man
Now my understanding is buried in the sand

Chorus(1x)

I want to go back to a time
Where you didn't resign on everything
And left it behind
I guess I'll say I'm alright
I guess I'll say I'm just fine
I'll be alright
I'll be just fine

I miss the shelves of pictures that you had that now hang in my garage
I feel like everything that happened was just a mirage
I've been saying rest in peace,
I don't think I'll ever sleep
I've been saying rest in peace,
I don't think I'll ever sleep
I've been saying rest in peace,
Why wont you get some sleep
Track Name: Lucky Number Seven
Conceited everyday
You're walking circles around me
My eyes are dimming
The paint is thinning
My lies are getting the best of me
I falter when I walk
I'm trying hard to talk the talk
I don't know how to end it
Your in it to win in it
And I'm just rolling the dice

My chest is getting heavy
Yet you still expect the envy
Of everyone else
Of them wanting us
And I'm just left to resume
You are the moon I am the tide
I bend to you
You think that's fine

Chorus:
It was a waste of time
We fell apart at the side where
I couldn't keep my end up
(I'll be alright)
I never kept my end up
(I'll stay home tonight)
It happens every time
I'm pennies and nickels
Fragile and brickle
Now being stuck to resume
(I'll be alright)
There's too much space in this room
(I'll stay home tonight)

Enticing compliments
And timeless incidents
A maze of clear intent, it's evident, but you're hesitant so stay
And you can haunt me till I'm empty
Write the wrong words end the story
Keep the screen on cuz it's tempting
And I won't be long don't worry

I love the way you lie when you meant it
And instigate with higher intentions
I'll be alright
I'll stay home tonight
It's way too late and I'm tired but tempted
I'm on my way so retire your defenses
I'll be alright
I'll stay home tonight

Chorus(1x)
Track Name: Ruminate
Don't be surprised
When I reform the bags that clothed my eyes
I still think of your smile
It's painted on the ceiling of my bedroom
That night the nicotine haunted me
Every in take reminded me of everything
That was taken
That was taken

Chorus:
And I try not to think about it
But yet it still keeps playing over in my head
Over in my head again
I get lost around it
Because it's seeming like I'm in over my head
In over my head again

The acts were needless and dense
But we use them spite the consequence
To you it never made sense
I'll always care for things at my own exspense
If I'm reaping what I sow
Then I'll take what I can borrow
And stay here 'til tomorrow
And stay here
If I'm reaping what I sow
Then I'll take what I can borrow
And stay here 'til tomorrow
And stay here 'til tomorrow

And I try not to think about it
But yet it still keeps playing over in my head
Over in my head again
I get lost around it
Because it's seeming like I'm in over my head
In over my head again

If you saw what kind of a rut I'm in
Maybe you'd have no choice but to jump in
To you it never did make sense
(To care for things at my own expense)
To you it never did make sense
(To care for things at my own expense)

And I try not to think about it
But yet it still keeps playing over in my head
Over in my head again
I get lost around it
Because it's seeming like I'm in over my head
In over my head again

(The acts were needless and dense
But we use them spite the consequence
To you it won't make sense
I'll always care for things at my own exspense)
