Cigarettes 02:44
I've been up waiting for the soft and dullish whisper Hearing it all makes the hair run from my neck I can assume that you'll forget the rest Something tells me I fell back a step One step forward, two steps back again All my friends are smoking cigarettes All I can do is whisper my regrets God bless Holly, Lorde knows she's been well Sleep deprived and always scared as hell All you had to say was you were dead, Or left me doubting anything you speak All my love, it got in the way Luck runs short when bills are left unpaid I am one step short of taking names Oh everyone we loved has gone away

Bad Blood 02:51
In a simple way you know me, bad blood Do not recognize the struggle Quickly come to torch your mind, quickly come to It was catatonic sounds, my love, Nothing coming here to cut you Reach over and try to pry your hand from mine So dry your eyes and speak to me Compose yourself and speak to me There's so much more to say to me But we hold things so secretly You will come to learn to love me I promise for a long, long, long, long time We'll spend counting our crimes I pushed the side of misery While you were dying to set me free Oh we're the most peculiar things We take ourselves so seriously

Back To Me 03:16
Wear your hair up if that's what you like Sleep forever, pay no price. To me there's no one singing "No I don't feel much like that tonight" And if your hair's out of your face I guess it's better off than when it's to the side These days I'm living off of, the good of man I'm a calloused thief, one of the many damned Yet I stand here like a fortress, so cloaked and cryptic settling like houses. Oh and I am one more breath from cynical, holding it until that feeling passes. Catching my breath, not losing it yet. It's hard to forget with all that I'm said to be. You'll get back to me. Something's tearing at my peace of mind Now I'm drinking coffee for a cheaper high And as my hair turns to silver, the slivers of myself will stand divided Oh, I'll take a sad one or two or three and contemplate until I have decided Call me reckless to abandon love All this want for nothing and I still can't touch, anything of worth or wisdom Instead I killed the only thing that lasted Oh, you are a sly one, I'll cripple you, shake your branches harder than the last did Love is sunk and lost again

Do It Again 03:07
I got my neck shaved You got a reason to live We both got what we want You're such a sweet thing And I'm a bastard We're both stuck in a rut So while the calendar thins and you're losing your gripI'll believe it when you say it but know you'll slip You did it once you'll do it again You're on fire You've got a long trip I've got my reasons to quit We're only growing apart So now you're selling your things, learning hard what it means To get a solid grip on loving anybody but me The passing of an era, the second hand ticks But you keep carrying the weight of what you can't fix But now you're feeling small When you say my name, Do you say it the same as when you gave it to me? Or somewhere along the way Did it get faded and worn beyond compare and belief Now it turns out You saved up enough to outlive me now You did it somehow. Saved up enough to get rid of me now

Brushfire 03:48
I had a dream where we both ended up getting caught in a brushfire The ring that surrounded us ten feet taller than you You were getting sick at the thought sight and sound of what transpired I was getting tired of wondering what’s the use We could write a book on the rise and the fall of an empire Make a new law for each and every excuse The cavalry will call as your face turns pale and you retire Sink to the floor and pray for something to do Let’s cut out the middle man He’s the only man I can’t stand Nothing ever makes any sense Nothing ever goes like we planned I think I know, that I sink too low, don't I know, don't I know. Wake up You’ve been living your whole life Just looking through the blinds You’re leaving yourself behind Make up A reason to be alive A reason to just get by You're leaving yourself behind I was wondering how it felt this time to be honest When you dragged yourself to the street to say what you'd seen Sweating to death in the backyard denying to comment And opening up for everybody to see Everything I pray for gets sold on the TV With a dotted line, and a credit card I’m buying happy I don’t discuss myself enough, the thought of it disgusts me Everything I hope for isn’t always what it seems All the legwork put into pride is proving overwhelming Talk me down I just need a second to breathe

Gone 03:32
It left a note inside my head The parts of you we loved are dead And while I'll sit beside your bed You my friend are gone With all that we grew to expect We blurred the lines of self respect The rumors preach of our neglect To prove the point we're wrong The worst part of living through a disaster Is waiting around until it happens again It seems the worst part of being stuck with an answer Is knowing not to ask the question again You grabbed my wrist, you said to me We're twenty-six and all I see Are shells of who I thought we'd be Now that you are gone We took some time, we shook it out We brushed it off but still this doubt Keeps echoing without the sound Reminding me I'm wrong The worst part of living through a disaster Is waiting around until it happens again It seems the worst part of being stuck with an answer Is knowing not to ask the question again I'm sick of doing enough to just get comfortable I want to be vulnerable I want to be miserable I want to not let the light in, despite the habit I've been in Of talking about the time that's on my mind I'm buried here six feet beneath my lack of confidence With your crooked smile still next to me asking "that's all there is?"
