Track Name: [Track Title]
I don't know what to say here
But I am feeling underprepared
(I am feeling underprepared)
For this conversation

I'll be the reason that you're leaving this time
It is the necessary role I need to play
Cause someone has to
I guess I have to

Why would we ever try to hide?
When we're just messing with your mind
I'm looking back and hoping all of this was worth it in the end

So let me say a few more things,
that don't mean anything,
to anyone,
not even to me

I didn't think it'd be this hard
to revert back
just for a while
I needed to find something to say

Why would we ever try to hide?
When we're just messing with your mind
I'm looking back and hoping all of this was worth it in the end

If this meant anything to you
Just know that it means nothing to us
If this means anything to you
Just know that it means nothing to us
Track Name: On Impulse
I've never been one
To be in one place for too long
I'm looking for something
No point in hanging on

You say I spend too much time
Looking for where I should be
Not enough time spent
Just being somewhere

I'd say I've spent enough time
Aimlessly walking in circles
No intention to make any progress
I keep taking all the wrong steps

I'm gonna keep making my biggest decisions on impulse
I'm taking the blame for choices I made, they were my fault

I've never been one
To let a thin rope tie me down
The knife I used to use
To cut myself free
Is too dulled down now

And I've never been one
To have to reach to you for help
This is no fun
A broken promise to my aunt

I'm gonna keep making my biggest decisions on impulse
I'm taking the blame for choices I made, they were my fault

I'm gonna keep making my biggest decisions on impulse
I'm taking the blame for choices I made, they were my fault

I might be better off
If I take it slow
Could be reaping more
From the seeds I sew
This is the hardest part
I think we both know
I'm gonna make it out of here
On my own

(I'm gonna make it home)
This is the hardest part
I think we both know

I'm gonna make it out of here
On my own

(I'm gonna make it home)
This is the hardest part
I think we both know

I'm gonna make it out of here
On my own

(I'm gonna make it home)
I'm gonna keep making my biggest decisions on impulse
(I'm gonna make it home)
I'm taking the blame for choices I made, they were my fault
(I'm gonna make it home)
I'm gonna keep making my biggest decisions on impulse
(I'm gonna make it)
Track Name: Gomorrah
Take my picture off your wall
Cause I like the way the wall looks
And every weight that you bear
I will pile on more
At the picture you stare
Face-down on the floor

(face down on the floor)

I'll make a note of when I fall
Cause you like the way the floor shook
For every second I care
You will lie a bit more
No this has never been fair
There is a gun in your drawer

I'll try to make it to next fall
But you don't know how much the last took
I'm running low on air
And growing sick of this war
So could you say your last prayer
Cause I am tired and sore

Ever-present and miles from shore
Underwater and sinking more
I never told you,
You never asked
It's never over,
But time has past

And you could never kill me
Not the way that you already have
And I hope this makes you happy
Cause it's only ever made me sad
To think this is what you wanted
It was everything I ever had
So I hope this makes you happy
But I hope it makes it hurt so bad

Ever-present and miles from shore
Underwater and sinking more
I never told you,
You never asked
It's never over,
But time has past
Track Name: When I Leave Here
Brain says to arm,
“Reach out and hold her”
But conscious say,
“No, she is not yours to hold”
It is left to me, but
The conflict hurts my head
An internal struggle
I wont let go

We walk through the city
And out in the cold
She'd steal from me kisses
Her hand I would hold
The longer this went on, the
The more I hate myself
My weakness of mind,
My achilles heel

I know you can't understand what I'm
Feeling for you
When I leave here, you'll find someone else and they
Wont know what you do

Relax all my muscles and try to form words
Drawing nothing but blanks, and striking no chords
These games you are forcing me into
They are no fun at all
My weakness of mind,
My Achilles heel

I know you can't understand what I'm
Feeling for you
When I leave here, you'll find someone else and they
Wont know what you do

I've been trying to stand, like the man that I am
Focused all that I have, but my will cannot win
If this is what you want, than you got what you deserve
I'm getting out of this town, I don't plan to return

I know you can't understand what I'm
Feeling for you
When I leave here you'll try to forget me, but
I'll have finally broke through
Track Name: Tired
Let me sleep.
I'm tired still.
Wake me when,
You are gone.
Track Name: Don't Start
You let your struggles define you,
And we don't want to hear about it

It doesn't mean anything to me anymore, but
When I wrote it you were all that I could think about

And in hindsight,
I think I'm better off now than,
When I left you
I'm coming to realize that
I'm not so tortured

And it hurts,
But I'm not so tortured
Yes it hurts
But I'm not so tortured

And in hindsight, maybe
I should have left a bigger mark
Punched a little harder
And in hindsight
In hindsight

Losing all my self confidence,
But I never had it in the first place
You know they're always gonna hate you, kid
Might as well give them a reason

Losing all my self confidence,
But I never had it in the first place
You know they're always gonna hate you, kid
Might as well give them a reason

Losing all my self confidence,
(Let it hit you)
But I never had it in the first place
(Let it hit you)
You know they're always gonna hate you,
(Let it hit you)
Hate you
Hate you

You let your struggles define you,
And we don't want to hear about it

It doesn't mean anything to me anymore, but
When I wrote it you were all that I could think about
