Track Name: When Will
When will I get to leave this place
I'm feeling low I'm feeling wasted

Slow down you say it's not a race
yes my dear just to be complacent

But I am sick of talking shit
And frankly cannot stand flirtation

Tired eyes and pallid cheeks
I can't keep up a conversation

I have been sitting here for hours
Not here sadly he has been devoured
Come now you say don't be a coward
Please my love stop being so loud

I am not the one you want
Same features but distinctly different
This bodies mine but over time
It grew so damn weary of listening

It's agony these vanities
Are really wearing down my patience
Can you please just let me be
Alone is where i feel the safest
Track Name: Bleeders
I’m not this kind emotion no but
Sunny skies bound to break my eyes

You’ve got this kind of blueprint yeah but
Broken hearts bound to make you smart

I don’t know your face anymore
Cause you are so far gone

All my rage and scorn
Let it off
Cause fathers tell their sons
Run along
Cause we’re all lovers and bleeders
As all lonely ones have to be

Fevers raging beneath those bones but
Those tales you tell seem to hide you well

I can still some fire there but
Lullabies bound to make you cry

I don’t feel your heart anymore
Cause you are so far gone

All my rage and scorn
Let it off
And fathers tell their sons
Run along
cause we’re all lovers and bleeders
As all lonely ones have to be
Track Name: Old Habits
If old habits die hard
it will take some time
to get you out of my heart
And free from my mind
This will hurt you
But I would hurt you more

Things will go better if you don't expect
And you can run faster if you hold your breath
it's just a method
but the madness remains

would you notice
would you notice
this

Our skin absorbs the sweat
Which serves to act like glue
And I keep holding back these feelings
Cause I know they're true
You were so right when
You told me I'm too rough

I'm not yours
Your not mine no
This sadness
It has to go

Would you notice
Would you notice
This

I'm not so sure

I'm not yours
Your not mine no
This sadness
Just seems to grow

I realize that I can be a terrible man
Sometimes I turn into someone that I cant stand
I'll try and change that
But I don't know if I can
Track Name: I Wrote A Novel
I wrote a novel about it
Grammatically it's full of holes
My specialty has never been
knowing where them commas go

I made a promise about it
You'd think by now I would have learned
That page and pen and good intent
Don't represent a corner turned

I should know better than I do
And I would if I could
If I had the will to want to

But I already know this well
And yet I remain it still

I'm so frightened of failure
That I'm scared to even begin
That ironies not lost on me
I just refuse to let it sink in

I'm a creature of Habit
Cotton comfort sun and cold
Leave me outside when rivers high
eventually I'll turn to stone

I should know better than I do
And I would if I could
If I had the will to want to

But I already know this well
And yet I remain it still
Track Name: Someday Soon
I'd sell my soul
For a dime or two
Because getting old never did much use
And I'll find my way someday soon

Someday soon I'm gonna find hope

I'll bury my rage
underneath your feet
And in time with age you may one day meet
And you'll feel my pain someday soon

Someday soon I'm gonna find hope

I'll hang my skin
On an old coat rack
Then I'll fly the wind cause
Baby I'm not coming back
And I'll find my place
Someday soon
Track Name: Home
My fight is the one I share with you,
Long nights and a basement full of booze

My heart is a struggle to ignore
If not this then what am I living for

I'll be home
before too long

Let it grow
Let it grow on

My lungs took a beating in those days
Cigarettes boy come now act your age

Sometimes I feel like dying
Not me no wont stop trying
My bodies cracking and cracking and cracking and Cracking

I'll be home
Before too long

Let it grow
Let it grow on you

My home is the only place I know
Track Name: Little Quirk
Please don't lie to me
cause I don't appreciate it

I don't like the sound of that
I don't like the sound of that
Please stop making that noise
Cause boy it annoys
me
Track Name: 30 Something
I'm a walking ghost
Your standard railroad post
And I'm a let-down Tyre
A bad and impulsive buyer

I'm living the life
That I never wanted
And I'll never think twice
About how I got here
I'm happy with being crappy
At what I do
How about you?

I'm the fallen kind
The one you leave behind
I'll do what I can
Please and thank-you ma'am

I'm living the life
that I never wanted
And I'll never think twice
About how I got here
I'm happy with being crappy
At what I do
How about you?
Track Name: Tired
You've got a hole inside your head
but I'm not filling in the gaps
You've got reason to be angry
But lets just leave it at that

I'm not angry
I'm just overtired

You gave words which you called answers
But I wasn't quite sure what they meant
Now it's said and done it's over
And it wasn't quite how I had dreamt

I'm not angry
don't be angry
we're just overtired
