Track Name: My Camo Cargo Shorts Are Too Tight To Power Stance
why’d you quit your medicine?
don’t make me go through this again
i thought you swore you’d try to mend
the emptiness inside your head
i know i don’t understand that you
don’t want to be here on earth but
you still need to figure out
how to make your family proud

i don’t know what else to do
to help you help yourself anymore

you’re falling, falling, falling down
running yourself straight into the ground
wondering why you can’t get back up now
that you’ve thrown yourself away again
somehow, you let me down

do you hear the words i say to you?
or do they simply pass right through
one ear to the other, listen to your mother
i’m not sorry for smothering you

what do you want me to say?
that everything is fine and that i feel okay?
Track Name: Yzma
now i’m underwater
i’ve been fighting for the surface for three years now
but you held me under
held out your hand in support
when you’d rather see me drown

you said you loved me when you wanted me dead
and you lost the taste of loyalty when you two shared the same bed
just like your mother
building hatred in brothers

little hardcore straight edge prom queen
beg her to drop to her knees
i bet she’s grateful that he kept things short
thought process disgusting
truly refines repulsing
what else are priorities for?

your actions were so regrettable
they made made you so forgettable
he was finished before she could even start
now i don’t need your presence
the verdict’s been sentenced

what made you think i wouldn’t fall apart?
i have a heart

you said you loved me when you wanted me dead
and you lost the taste of loyalty when you two shared the same bed
just like your mother
building hatred in brothers
and now i’d rather be dead
than to share the same state,
i never wanna see you again
the thought makes me shudder
i bet you’ve swallowed another since
Track Name: Happy Hour :)
when i started drinking again
i tried to stick to weekends
such a foul addiction
could mean the worst times for my best friends
i fell from a mile high
i shouldn’t have ever listened
when everyone said try
not being so pessimistic

i’m so alone
even in the place that i call home
but i’ve been told
that’s just a symptom of growing old
now i move so slow
due to the poison i withhold
i feel so cold
that’s just a symptom of growing old

fall in love, because who likes being alone?
chain smoke, because who needs to breathe when you never wanted to grow old?
never knock on wood, because who needs luck?
who needs luck when you’ve already given up?

i started drinking again
when i realized my best friends
will never care as much
as when i lay on my deathbed
Track Name: Hit Me With The Metronome, Roll The Credits
that’s a lot of fucking courage
it must take
hiding behind your screens,
why don’t you come
be brave to my face?
you’re fake
abusers of space,
wasted years and years
spiraling down the drain

how many times are we gonna circle this wall?
at least six rounds, i read the seventh should fall
i thought that i’d feel empty
but i don’t even miss you at all

i guess you were too busy taking photos of yourself to notice
too many people have the same opinions
oh, your insecurity echoes bigger than
the words you yell over everyone else
just to be the loudest one in the room
everybody’s eyes always on you
fishing for compliments every two seconds
doesn’t it ever get boring
yearning and yearning, but refusal of learning?

you always act on instinct
never analyze anything
i used to love your shout
now i’m left craving a silenced
mouth

i hope you write a couple goodbye letters
only to wake up
still fucked up
unable to remember
now you’re no friend to me
since you want to be
the latter definition of sheep

i'm not okay
