Track Name: One-90
We found you laid out on the couch, hands were blue, your head was down,
A note with your plea for peace at least, escape this hell that holds you back
And I keep having dreams you're still alive

I've gone and stared at myself through broken shattered mirrors
Wipe the blood off my hands and face,
Carve your name in my head with memories I see all over,
I'll never feel the same again

(Bridge)
I'm tired of killing myself over reasons that I cannot sleep
I'm tired of feeling alone when I'm the one that chooses to leave~
Like you left me when you took your life, you'll never see things that I've done
I can't blame you cause I feel the same,
just a child you left on his own
And all the numbness in the world couldn't cure my pain.

I've gone and stared at myself through broken shattered mirrors
Wipe the blood off my hands and face,
Carve your name in my head with memories I see all over,
I'll never feel the same again
Track Name: A Cute Puncture
Time to write out all the plays in my head,
Redundant arguments with words I've never said,
Blame the people I meet, blaming everything on anyone but me

I wonder when I'll make sense of it all,
Tired of using my problems to excuse my fall
But they tear me apart/from the inside out

Splitting my lips with screams, at what's in front of me,
Look at the scars I leave, am I still beautiful?

And everyday that I can't leave, is another scare cause my hearts stops beating,
A typical fight for an insatiable dream

Woah~

I wonder when I'll make sense of it all,
Tired of using my problems to excuse my fall
But they tear me apart/from the inside out
Track Name: Buscemi
Take lack of sleep and
A mental torment,
You've placed your flaws on a chair by the wall~
You Pick and choose from
The broken pieces
The constant sting that can't be withheld at all

And you never tried
And you never cared
And after all you've done
What more can be said?
You've got to pick your battles
nothing changes in the end
Nothing changes anymore~
I guess the headaches aren't worth the sore

Everything that
once Seemed important
Melts in the scenery that surrounds you
A bed of silence
These thoughts plague my wrists
What you've done makes my dreams far and few
We took these steps in
Some wrong directions,
Crossing lines we've drawn for ourselves
And now I sit here in all this chaos and all of this you've done for yourself

And you never tried
And you never cared
And after all you've done
What more can be said?
You have to pick your battles
nothing changes in the end
Nothing changes anymore~
I guess the headaches,
I guess the headaches aren't worth the sore
Track Name: Gulf Coast
I'll keep on sipping, from the glass that you've poured all your anger and headaches and nightmares into,
Cause soon I'll be missing the part of the wall that was broken when you said that you needed a break

You said goodbye and I know that you mean it this time
(I don't want you to know me)
Maybe I fucked up not telling you more than just lies
(And I don't want you to care)
And if there's a reason why I should stay here then I need to hear it, I'm sorry I was never even there
(Lock me out forever, pretend I was never there)

And I can't believe it, another night i'lol be sleeping in my shitty car, the heat hasn't worked for months.
And it's time that I see that, this is nothing more than a mess that's been made by my dirty hands and a room that's been torn apart

You said goodbye and I know that you mean it this time
(I don't want you to know me)
Maybe I fucked up not telling you more than just lies
(And I don't want you to care)
And if there's a reason why I should stay here then I need to hear it, I'm sorry I was never even there
(Lock me out forever, pretend I was never there)

Track Name: Whatever, Whatever
You're talkin to yourself, makin noise in your bedroom, got the lights on so that you can feel safe in your house,
like the moths on the window you still haven't found a way out,
the lights getting dimer as the shadows take over the ground

go and poor you a drink, sipping wine out the bottle, you can tell that's it cheap by taste that it leaves in your mouth
Ponder questions you can't answer and
answers that you never found
And your heart can break easy if you keep tearing it out of yourself

Your holding your breath, prolonging the future,
Rubbing your eyes cause of things you cannot see,
maybe things will get better but for right now you'll just try to breath,
And you'll see me whenever, if ever, you decide to leave
