Track Name: Smoked Spitely
you say i’m not much better then i was four years ago detrimental imperfections bringing me to a whole new low how was i to remember when i cant recall the food i ate last night i guess i'm unintentionally rude i am exceeding the limits of my mental bandwidth which makes a simple feeling hit me like a wall of bricks i’m only human oh sure, i am a weasel please burn me at the stake because i’m heading back to place that's deep in my head where i apprehend, we're better off dead featuring short bursts of “you did good kid” countered with what’s the point, in all of this i’m surrounded by problems, most don't touch me yet they tear me apart mentally i’m not down and out just filled with so many doubts who am i to complain anyway
Track Name: Punch Myself
I WANNA PUNCH MYSELF WHEN I’M NOT WITH YOU SMOKE MYSELF TO SLEEP OR DROWN IN TV IT WON’T TAKE MUCH TO GET THE TRUTH I’M SPEWING LINES I KNOW I’M FEELING STEP OUT IT’S COLD BUT THE SHEETS ARE THERE RIDE INTO TOWN OR RIDE ANYWHERE AND I’LL PICK UP THE PACE WAKE UP ALL GONE NO IT’S NEVER FAIR THIS TIGHTENED GRIP IS BEYOND REPAIR AND I’LL PICK UP THE PACE WOULD YOU LEAVE THIS PLACE OR WOULD YOU STAY INSIDE CAUSE I MIGHT DIE IN YOUR EYES
Track Name: Pulling
it was nice to know you don't want to say it but it's the truth and this feeling is as relieving as pulling an impacted tooth it's sure distracting getting caught up in all your shit will you ever come around i don’t care, i won't wait for it guess this was happening for a while what's the catalyst when i forgot how to smile what's there to miss when you don’t want a part of this what's the difference between you and me it's you do what youre told while i do what i please what's the difference between you and me you're so cool but i'm too cruel
Track Name: Dying Lawns Insisting On Being Watered
I’M AN ANXIOUS WRECK I’M A MESS I’VE BEEN WALKING AROUND WITH A WHOLE IN MY CHEST BUT I’M NOT DEPRESSED YET YOU’RE THE ONLY THING I THINK ABOUT THAT’S ENOUGH FOR NOW I COULD USE SOME REST SINCE YOU LEFT I’VE BEEN GRINDING MY TEETH DOWN TO THE FLESH EVER SINCE I’M MISSING STEPS I’M IN DISTRESS YOU’RE THE ONLY THING I THINK ABOUT I CAN’T KEEP MY TWO FEET ON THE GROUND WHEN YOU’RE NOT AROUND
Track Name: Shrug
why can't i see anything clearly why can't i let things go my head is in the clouds when i'd like it in the sand how do i react, i don't know got to love this constant apathy with all this broken glass inside my head if i keep falling down what's the point getting back up when you know how much i like to stumble through i'm filled with distrust and disinterest i've never been more lazy
Track Name: Vacation (From Ourselves)
IT SEEMS LIKE WE’VE LOST IT AND I CAN’T PRETEND I CAN’T HELP THINKING THIS IS ONLY THE BEGINNING SO GO AHEAD COMPLAIN AGAIN YOU’LL GROW A SCAB TO PICK AGAIN I WAS WELL-ACQUAINTED OR SO I THOUGHT I’VE BEEN DRAGGING MY FEET AFTER WALKING SO FAR IT’S PULLING TEETH AS I’M TRYING TO SPEAK WHEN ALL I CAN THINK IS THE PROBLEM IS ME AND I CAN’T BE LEFT ALONE OR I’LL MAKE UP EXCUSES AND DO SOMETHING STUPID I JUST NEED TO KNOW YOU’RE OK ARE YOU OK? I COULD HEAR SNOW MELT AS I WAITED FOR YOU THOUGHT OF THE THINGS I’LL NEVER FOLLOW THROUGH MAYBE TOMORROW I WILL SAY THEM TO YOU
