Track Name: Here's To Not Waking Up
A lost cause in this place you're only a waster of our time
I'm almost embarrassed you're integrity seems to run dry
I can't feel bad cause you're the cancer to this fucking scene
A mistake a mishap you need a new dream

Cause I know this doesn't seem fair
But you did this to yourself

This world would be a better place (would be a better place)
Without people like you
It's for the best just do us a favor (just do us a favor)
And disappear

A sorry excuse for a person you bring the whole world down
To your level of disappointment
It's truly amazing how you look into the mirror and see a reflection at all

You're a goddamn fake

This world would be a better place (would be a better place)
Without people like you
It's for the best just do us a favor (just do us a favor)
And disappear

Cause I know this doesn't seem fair
But you did this to yourself
Track Name: I Said No Cops
My head is busting with thoughts of dead relatives
I drone them out with the drone of to-do lists and endless mornings
It's gunna take much more than a hug to fix this one
I might be forced to pay by the hour (I'm only getting louder)
In this constant game of hide and seek my friends are nowhere to be found
So what now

Listen to me (Listen to me)
My scream can match your scream
Listen to me (Listen to me)
A flood of voices in the P.A.
Listen to me (Listen to me)
My scream can match your scream
Listen to me (Listen to me)
All you needs a pair of ears and you're set free

You're set free

Here's the deal we stand in the middle of a busy street (busy street)
with a plain white sign that says talk to me (talk to me)
Tell us your life story spare no detail
Nothing will change after you're done you say your thanks and you walk away
It'll get you through the week
It'll get you through the long nights spent alone while it becomes you're everyday

Everybody's on their cellphones all the time
How can I compare to the person on the other line
We post our suicide notes before we hit the floor
We're all capable of banding together we just gotta open the door

Listen to me (Listen to me)
My scream can match your scream
Listen to me (Listen to me)
A flood of voices in the P.A.
Listen to me (Listen to me)
My scream can match your scream
Listen to me (Listen to me)
All you needs a pair of ears and you're set free

You're set free 3x
Track Name: Sleep It Off
I've been staying up nights getting lost inside my head
Chasing memories to find a way to become happy
But you're breaking inside
But you'd never know it with this painted smile on my face

And you won't understand
But I do what i can
To keep my chin up cause it's not as bad as it might seem

The best two nights of my life I wasn't me
I was someone else not better but I wish to be
A brand new person
It's not easy but I'm getting there

And you won't understand
But I do what I can
To keep my chin up cause it's not as bad as it might seem

(I want some clarity)
I had a dream that I was fine everyday I get one step closer

And you won't understand (Everyday I get one step closer)
But I do what I can (Everyday I get one step closer)
To keep my chin up cause it's not as bad as it might seem
(Everyday I get one step closer)
Don't worry about me (Everyday I get one step closer)

It's not easy but I'm getting there
Track Name: Oh Charlene
Let me set the stage the first time that I felt true pain
The last girl that kept my heart
Got lost somewhere between her home and the bar
6 monthes still never found
Everyday her parents search that town
Hoping to find maybe a lock of her hair

A lock of her hair
She's hiding somewhere
A lock of her hair

I think that everyone holds a tragedy so near and dear
It's what keeps you up at night
It's why you spill your guts to strangers On a Train
Hoping they can clean up the mess

We can never get over it
The pain just takes different forms
We can never get over it
This is what happens when your head and your heart are at war

We make it who we are
We learn to appreciate the scar
We make it who we are

Oh Charlene
Your face still haunts my dreams
They say the worst part is not knowing
Who holds your daughter's remains
Oh Charlene
I wish I had the strength
To say this to you
To you

To you
Say this to you
To you
To you
