1. Just Fine

Everything is going fine Going off without a hitch But soon enough you'll find That life's a fucking bitch Because the facts are cold and hard The needle point is sharp A picture is worth a thousand words And a pretty face is worth a thousand broken heart How much further can shit go south? Before I want to put a gun in my mouth Before I take these thoughts and I act them out And put it all to an end Can I leave that blood on the hands of my friends? Can I leave that scar on the name of my kin? Where? How? and When? Everything to lose And nothing all the same Do I leave a legacy? Or do they forget my name? Way too much to chew For what is now just a thought Hold tight and brace myself For the day that is not And when I leave this Earth Try not to be too hurt

2. Reputation

Approach me with hesitation Heard about my reputation Lord knows I've tried to change But fear it's too much too late There are things I could try to say To try and sway you either way But I just ran out of time And the window's closed to change your mind Can't help what I say Can't help what I do So much about me I wish you never knew You got it all figured out You keep me at arm's length The blood's already on my hands No changing what you think Can't help what I say Can't help what I do So much about me I wish you never knew

3. Spit Out

What was I to say? You let me down and you walked away What was I to do? I never seen that side of you Ignorance is bliss Somehow it makes me wonder How could I give two shits for a two-faced motherfucker? Chewed me up and spit me out And left me to clean the mess Caught me off guard and it's so hard To try and let go of this Ignorance is bliss Somehow it makes me wonder How could I give two shits for a two-faced motherfucker? Your true colors are shining through I'm no use to you Chewed me up and spit me out How could I still care about Someone who just threw away Like I was nothing? All the times you shook my hand I couldn't conceive it Turn your back on me, man? I couldn't believe it

4. Dig Deep

Woe is me I dig deep I'll never let myself be happy It's all just doomed from the start I truly want stability But I tear everything apart Don't have what I want Don't want what I got Never wanted much Never had a lot And I pray for the day When I can be content in my own skin No chances taken No chances given Help me to understand Just why I am the way I am I live in fear Afraid to fail Locked up inside my own jail I buit these walls, I'm trapped inside How much longer can I hide? Help me to understand Just why I am the way I am Help me to make it right Can't live in fear my whole life

5. Anxiety

Brain melt Note to self Do you remember just how it felt? Bit your tongue and you just dealt Until it all boils over That was your first mistake Need I remind you What got us here in the first place? Anxiety Won't let me go, won't let me go So am I crazy? Well I don't know, well I don't know I can't think straight Anxiety gets the best of me I take it all on the chin Trying to figure out where the fuck it all went Looking up from my back again

6. Abyss

How can I love you If I can't love myself? I sweep it under the rug Just like everything else You take the good with the bad Through the nights like this And you sink with me into the abyss I regress and I slip And I fall off that cliff Free falling head first Pray I don't feel a thing when I hit the dirt How can I love you If I can't love myself? I needed something to hold Every time that I fell You took pity on me And I couldn't resist I regress and I slip And I fall off that cliff Free falling head first Pray I don't feel a thing when I hit the dirt I never wanted this I'm really sorry Miss I pulled you down with me Into the abyss Sink with me

7. Bark

I'll never let you tie me down To be a dog just barking on a chain Jerk me back to reality Whenever I dare to dream So let me curl my lips Let me howl at the moon Been looking down on me long enough But my day's coming soon No thanks to you You can follow me through open doors Or you can wish me the best I refuse to follow you under You've been a weight on my chest And when there's nothing left to say I ask you kindly relocate You're in my fucking way

8. Sleep Lost

My mind does the time for the crime against myself And it comes at the cost of sleep lost Another day, another dollar Another night is even harder to swallow I contemplate my end I count up all my friends Weigh out the pros and cons Who's going to miss me when I'm gone Who? Nothing keeps me sane Like the long walks through the rain Let the cold come over me Let it wash away my shame All the ones that have occupied my head And all the ones the have occupied my bed Get out

9. Pills And A Promise

Six long years I've been nursing this pain Six long years I've been screaming your name Summer heat Sweating in my sleep Just lay me down for an eternity It was perfect I didn't deserve it I was so helpless as you slipped right from my hands And I have never been so confused Courtesy of all your miscues Erase away the mistakes we made And blame them on our youth I needed more than pills and a promise I needed more than a bullshit excuse You left me back holding the bag And all I ever wanted was the truth Nothing is working This shit can't save me I've been fucking going crazy All the things I should've said Plays over and over in my head

10. YDN

Mama tried I sold my soul to the devil I never fit the mold A young rebel Future is bleak For this black sheep Left out for the wolves to eat I'm a product of my mistakes Try to run from my past But I could never escape I turn and I face the music And leave the rest up to fate There are things I left behind And lived to fight another day I cut some ties, I lost some friends Made enemies along the way I walked a line, I changed my mind I didn't like how the game was played So crucify my if you will For all the choices I have made

11. Focus

You can fake it so easily Put on a show for everybody to see Just to hold the attention Of those impressed with empty conversation But your opinion Could never budge me You can try You'll never see it through my eyes You can talk until you're blue in the face Put everything you had into a world that despised you Focus on my mind Focus on my strength Nothing to offer or relate to So quick to turn away So quick to hate you I built it up and I fucking said it I burned that bridge I don't regret it

12. Pendulum Swings

Pressure is on The clock's ticking Sweating bullets The plot thickens Nothing but a blank stare on my face As another hour slips away And the fuse slowly burns I can't come to terms That the world won't stop for me I try to keep up I keep my feet to the ground But can't make the world slow down Too much to do Not enough time All the things that I can't Just weigh on my mind I can't control what's out of my hands When I'm up against the grains of sand Pendulum swings Pendulum takes Reaper come to whisk me away Head first towards a brick wall And I can't pump the brakes I try to keep up I keep my feet to the ground But can't make the world slow down Pendulum swings Pendulum takes Reaper come to whisk me away
