Track Name: Morning Light
These days I’m living reckless and loud
Or all alone without a sound
One excuse or the other, they’ll both do me in
The price I pay for living in sin

I’ve got drugs to calm me down
And I’ve got some to run me in the ground
A different vice for every night
To help me catch that morning light

I loved you so hard and now you’re gone
But I can keep you in a song
Where I don’t have to sleep alone
Or hate the man that I’ve become
Track Name: Killing Time
I’m the best at killing all of your time
Dedicate my whole life to living blind
To all of the bullshit that I can’t take

My apathy, everyday I watch that shit grow
And what is wrong with me? Nobody seems to know
It’s eating me alive

I can run away to 49 different states
But that will not cure the problems my mind creates
I’m building a tolerance to being sane

I’m cutting off all my hair, they’re gonna send me away
And I do not know where, but it’s not where my heart is gonna stay
Because I buried it a long time ago
Track Name: Darker Side of Town
If I left here tomorrow it wouldn’t matter to me
I’ve got no time to make history
And if the world’s almost over I’m giving up
Because I know I’d never make the cut

I’ve got this friend he moved back home
Wasn’t strong enough to make it on his own
When you take the poison for long enough
One of these days it won’t let you back up
There’s a darker side of town
That’s where some of my friends are bound
If I’m not careful I’ll join them soon
Your prison walls better make some room

If I died tomorrow would it matter to you?
If you heard my name on your evening news
If lightning strikes twice girl let me know
Until that time I’ve got to let you go

There’s a darker side of town
And that’s where all of my friends are bound
If I’m not careful I’ll join them soon
Your prison walls better make some room
Track Name: Alcohol
Every shadow’s a deceiver
They’re not the people I miss
And every night I’m a believer
That I’ll be fine after this

And I know this is not the way

Every day’s another battle
Hope I make it out alive
Somewhere along I lost the handle
This shit’s too broken to drive

And I know this is not the way

In a matter of minutes
I can make me feel alright
But if I push too hard and finish
Tell my mother goodbye

‘Cuz I know this is not the way
Track Name: Stay Young
This is the one thing that you cannot take from me
Track Name: Silver Lining
Silver lining’s what I’m looking for
Before the darkness starts spreading more
But if you help me find a cloud, we’ll clean it up, we’ll hollow it out
And fill it up with the things we love

It took 25 years to realize
You can’t go back, the innocence dies
But if you help me get back up I know we’ll make it farther than some
Just keep in mind what’s done is done

If you can’t take it, I can’t take it

Silver lining’s what I’m looking for
Track Name: Fix It
Waited it out
Think it will be different this time
I highly doubt
That you can fix your fucked up mind

Waited it out
You bit hard like the second time
I’m running out
Of my money and my time

But you can’t fix it

Waited it out
You bit hard like the second time
I highly doubt
That I can fix my fucked up mind

You were wrong
Said I’d be better on my own
Now that I’m gone
You have all the room to roam

But you can’t fix it
Track Name: Before My Time
Can’t understand why you gotta try to make it through
All of their lies, they’re gonna burn them into you
You used to be happy but now it’s losing all its charm
And it cuts you deep like a lover’s name carved in your arm

This is the reason I wanna die before my time
They’ve got you believing that all your problems are a crime
But I’ve got mine
Just the same as you

A twisted joke that you can’t seem to figure out
Your voice is a ghost, it disappears when you wanna shout
I keep that picture just because your hair was down
And I might sing to it at night when no one is around
Track Name: Wasted Words
All the wasted words on the evidence I burned
Everybody’s gotta die why don’t you think you get a turn?
I looked the devil in the eye, he said “boy you’re gonna fry”
And then he knew that I would join him soon

Erase it out of my head
The dark things I did
You’ve gotta pay the price
Just pray it’s not tonight

Now looking back I know where I got off track
One specific night where I barely survived
You’ve got to grow your heart into stone
Cuz it’s not easy to know that we all die alone
Track Name: Remember Us
In the dead of night I can see you sitting there
In the dead of night I can see you sitting there
All alone in my room, can you see me sitting there?
All alone in my room, can you see me sitting there?

Us against them all, I hope they remember us
Backs against the wall, I hope they remember us
I cannot recall, did they even care for us?
Us against them all, did they even care for us?
