Track Name: Iraq
how close to the edge have you gotten / lets argue and waste our time / how many scenarios have you bled into / lets argue and waste our time / so how close to the edge have you gotten / lets argue and waste our time / how many oceans have you teared into / lets argue and waste our time /// you cant stand / what you see in the mirror / I can't even / gather the strength to look at myself /// I stood on that ledge so long / when i walked away i know a bit of me remained\\\
Track Name: honey
everything operates in cycles / when you think your moving forward / find yourself lost in your life / stuck in emotions you thought you left behind /// the devil on your shoulder, consciousness in your chest / to the end of / tried to get away but your back / to the end of / the higher you are the further the fall / to the end of / back at the bottom / to the end of time /// the devil on your shoulder, consciousness in your chest / to the end of / when will this finally end / to the end of / a week, a month, a year / to the end of / how much do you want / to the end of time /// conviction is unavoidable / fate lies in faulty genetics / wishes plunge you further down / id rather choke on reality \\\
Track Name: legos
take a step back and think / how did I end up here / imprison our own minds / don't trust anybody / now my / back is up against the wall / when I / polarize our differences / i scream / you don't want to live like this / everyone at a distance / until you lead yourself alone /// take a step back and think / how did we end up here / trust me / you don't want to live like this / hear me / everyone at a distance / i scream / now im all alone / everyones / at a distance / take a rest and think / “How does it feel to be alone? / Tell me” / “I don't want to be alone / save me.” \\\
Track Name: randy
i'm sure you know the feeling of your heart beating / pounding hard and fast as to jump out, avoid this mess / gravity on your shoulders / consciousness crumbles / reaction to events unfolding in front of your eyes /// I used to believe in those bed time stories / when they are at their lowest / you know that in the end it will come together / I want to skip to that end /// deal with the aftermath / confined to the horizontal / rethinking+debating what should i have said / should i have done / try to bury it deep inside / ignore it, its a cancer / and now the weight can be heard in my voice /// i used to believe in those bed time stories / when you are at your lowest / you know that in the end it will come together / i want to skip to my end /// will I be the change I need / will I find that change i need / this failed life has exhausted me / will I find that change i need /// when the story unfolds / the readers are content / applaud the authors works / was it worth all the pain /// bed time stories may help you get to sleep / I cut my story in half and have found some solace /// as I fall to sleep / i pray to a god / and if one does exist / please don't let me wake up \\\
Track Name: baseball
always know / what it / felt like / having you close to my heart / and i'll / always know / what it / felt like / sharing secrets that ive never told anyone / and i'll / always know / what it / felt like / loving someone for the fist time / here's my trust / here's my life / take my heart / all on the line / i've gone all in with all I have /// hold on / hold tight /// give me air / give me space / give me time / give it all / because i'm lost without a map / take my heart / take my will / take my breath / take it all / i'm not sure if i can handle it anymore / you were trust / we were life / blink once / and its goodbye / all lights go out, i'm left all alone in the dark / give me air / give me space / give me time / leave me alone / i'm giving back everything I held onto /// let go / give up //// and I could retrace all my steps / but I will never be who I was / and I might be the one to blame for this / but I didn't expect to be abandoned by whom I love / and as I witnessed my life fall to pieces / I stood naked with no heart to bleed on / and I may have given up on everyone / but i refuse to give up on myself \\\
