No Change 02:15
When you come to terms with everything And you realize your stale and broken My time is lost You wasted cause Here's to thick skin Your weak will held within Quit wasting my time you filthy liar I saw your soul once, it ran down your leg with your self esteem I would pity you since your pitiful I refuse to believe the spit dripping from your teeth There is no change Hope is dead
Useless 01:29
Oh it's fun pretending you have morals Shake your sense of guilt Protect your fucking will Yeah I'm nobody going nowhere What's that make me when you fucked me like you loved him? No surprise You're gracious in your mothers eyes Laugh at me You lowlife Belittle me You dirty fucking breed No surprise You're gracious in your mothers eyes No surprise Your dead father lied
Self Esteem 02:23
Quitting life No self gain I don't want to speak again I'm a waste of skin I'm a waste of breath I try so hard But I'm fucking sick of myself I'm a joke I'll never change In fucked up In giving up Selfish power trip I'm fucking of it
Get It Right 02:13
Oh a knife to my throat You can't reverse all the words you wrote Spit at my feet, gathering like shackles I'm not perfect but I'm learning that I'm always wrong. I'm trying hard but I never get it right I'll never forget the day you left me How could you leave me with no direction? I can't stand this Screaming obscenities just to break the glass We will never hold on to who we truly are It's not our faults It's taken away
Punchline 01:11
Use me For what I'm worth Take advantage Please yourself I'm not leaving you You already left me Now tell me the punchline! I am not wanted here I've been fucking up for 10 long years Sinking in the guilt that held on to my fears.
Living 02:40
Sometimes i feel like the only way out Is to give it up and leave this god forsaken town They would be better off without me around So I'll bury myself and you won't miss me Maybe I knew it right from the start When you pushed me to the side to better yourself Maybe I felt it living deep inside my head I let it fuck me up I'm done fucking up I want to grab life by the pressure points and squeeze but it never works Instead it holds me down and eats away at my will to live The only thing I hold onto is my own thoughts Everything else has failed me
Dying 04:33
I fail at everything Let the sickness take over me I can't stand it, I am dying young I remember the day I gave up I know the feeling of neglect. I welcome it with alcohol numbing my legs. They were worthless anyway I couldn't stand on my own when I tried. The stinging in my chest, the rotting of my liver. What else is it good for? watching leaves stain the concrete. Death burns yellow and trees rust. It's been months, I blame it on the liquor, it's always there to break the fall. It turns my guts to stone. I can actually say what's on my mind. I could tell you how I felt when I should have. The ground hold my eyes as I fill with regret. And you chased it with guilt just to embrace how we felt. I let it take advantage of my feelings like a lonely shadow just wishing to connect to familiar feet. I let it abuse us. But now you're loved by another. The years grow long and frail and I know it's too late for me to hold you. I know I made a mistake by not reaching out. I know we were meant for more than this. And I know my hands are weak because I can't hold faith in anyone or anything. And the cycle returns Every day I'm alive is another day I take up space
