I never get my hopes up they tend to always get torn down I let myself get choked up, never let myself turn around I never get my hopes up they tend to always get torn down I let myself get choked up... Now you find that everything you want from life is inside your mind But your brain’s already splattered on the floor Is that all that you needed to know Is that I’m losing all control Is that all that you needed to know That I’m losing all control Now I want everybody else to go fuck off right now Just leave me by myself I’m hanging out on the couch I’m not perfect but I’m not worthless No I’m not perfect but I’m not worthless Is that all that you needed to know Is that I’m losing all control Is that all that you needed to know That I’m losing all control Just take a knife and stab my stomach, everything’s outside Well I swallowed every feeling that I left in mind I said I’m fine, I said I’m fine Just leave me by myself you know I’m hanging out on the couch

Let It Rip 02:58
Little that you know that your worst has come to show Drop your curtain down because the crowd is far from wowed I don’t want to always be the bearer of bad news Looking forward to not talking to you (not to you) And hey, yeah this is true I can’t always be the one that you abuse The punches that you throw are at the belt and far below Through your highs and lows, meadows and your dirty clothes Little that you know that your worst has come to show Drop your curtain down and do that now and know that I don’t want to always be the bearer of bad news Looking forward to not talking to you (not to you) And hey, yeah this is true I can’t always be the one that you abuse If you keep your nose down you won’t drown

I’m desperate, misunderstood You’d forget just like I knew you would I wrote this down a million times I know what’s wrong but not from right I’m desperate, misunderstood You’d forget just like I knew you would I wrote this down a million times again I swear I handled it I wrote you back a million times again I thought I handled it
4.
Stumbling over your words that you’ve said and heard You can be such a jerk, you can be the worst On the other hand you can understand You can be my friend You’re lucky I like you You’re focused on the things that matter shouldn’t bring You never stop to rethink the thoughts that you need to keep It’s cause you’re not helping even when needed Are you trying to lose a friend? You’re lucky I like you You’re a snake in the grass, here’s another pass to enter my life You don’t try to analyze the things I fear inside Well, never you mind You’re lucky I like you

All Aboard 02:49
Today I’m waking up Kind of feel I’m stuck in a rut But progress is un-linear So, I guess I’ll just suck it up I am tired, I can’t sleep Am I expired, or just weak? Today I don’t know my place Feel like dirt was thrown in my face Now I feel so displaced Sinking into a slower pace I am tired, I can’t sleep Am I expired, or just weak?

Trap Classic 04:07
I started wondering why You put your fingers in my sides To test my confidence To see if I abide or resist In spite of me In spite of everything You disagree Coming over this again I want to control this I want to win Coming over this again I want to control this I want to win This game Your animosity Brings un-needed hostility In spite of me In spite of everything You disagree Coming over this again I want to control this I want to win Coming over this again I want to control this I want to win This game

Right Now? 03:39
I wrote down my problem through all afternoon I can’t escape them when I talk to you A hole in my gut is where they like to live I need to replace them with confidence With some confidence Coming down the wrong pipe this time Stuttered so I had to say it twice Choking on my words every time In front of you Tired of being in these situations Skewed fluency and terrible cadence The pen or the sword I can never choose I don’t want to be a prick or hurt you Don’t want to hurt you Coming down the wrong pipe this time Stuttered so I had to say it twice Choking on my words every time In front of you

Tired of wasting my time Not knowing wrong from right Now I can’t come down to hold you tight Well if I’m not mistaken You gave it, so you’ll take it Now I’m feeling jaded Cause I’m not worth taking Sorry for wasting your time But this has planted a spine Maybe it will grow in the meantime Well if I’m not mistaken You gave it, so you’ll take it Now I’m feeling jaded Cause I’m not worth taking
9.
Everyday I’m getting along Counting on my best bygones There’s no point of attack Just a rat on my back I’m prepared to collapse And I know I’m getting long in the tooth No way back and no redo I wanna come back through And I wonder in twenty years If I’ve met all my goals and I’ve faced all fears No I cannot turn back, I’m carved into a plaque Live my life on my back And know I’m getting long in the tooth No way back and no redo I wanna come back through Lamenting on the old days Need to focus on the good things And I know I’m getting long in the tooth No way back and no redo I wanna come back through

Take a sit down Brother and mother both left town Father doesn’t know what to do without them around Now it’s too late Break up for past mistakes Sleep it off for now wishing for you to be right here when I wake I won’t forget Just what you said About a family that’s been broken It’s been broken
11.
At the age of ten I said I have these feelings in my head And I don’t know what to do But then you say That it’ll be okay Well I know it won’t And I’m all alone Experience has grown on my bones and blood just know That I haven’t changed with the times But then you say That it’ll be okay Well I know it won’t But I’m not alone

Thanks a Lot 03:47
My backbone is breaking, it’s bending the wrong way again Saw my lines in half to start, cook my meat and tear me apart I’m overthinking to be the best I’ll always be It’s overwhelming to always try so hard I’m overthinking to be the best I’ll always be You know, it’s overwhelming to always try so goddamn hard Missteps in my ways don’t always need your say Anxieties aside, I need you to step back and rewind I’m overthinking to be the best I’ll always be You know, I’m overwhelming to always try so goddamn hard As you know this is overwhelming Thanks a lot Thanks a lot for nothing
