Track Name: Give Up The Ghost
I know this all too well
But it’s new to me
Time has gone much too slow
But it flew fast for me
You gotta get back up
Time to show our fears
No one gave a shit for me
But we still know our place

Give up the ghost
The person you use to know
At some point you’re letting it go
Just let the past be the past
Give up the ghost
The person you use to know
At some point you’re letting it go
Just let the past be the past
Give up the ghost

It’s a place called home
Somewhere warm to me
A thousand dusty wooden stages
Dozens of stomping feet
We let our feelings out
From angst and hate
A place of friendly fire
Where strangers can relate

Give up the ghost
The person you use to know
At some point you’re letting it go
Just let the past be the past
Give up the ghost
The person you use to know
At some point you’re letting it go
Just let the past be the past
Give up the ghost

Under blood and sweat
Is where we find who we are
Always struggling but never will forget
Under blood and sweat
Is where we find who we are
Always struggling but never will forget

Give up the ghost
The person you use to know
At some point you’re letting it go
Just let the past be the past
Give up the ghost
The person you use to know
At some point you’re letting it go
Just let the past be the past
Give up the ghost
Track Name: Angst
I hope you're Lonely
Got you all confused
hanging by a thread
But it's Better than a noose
I don't need your burning hate
Crowding all up in my face

And I know
When you look at me
Thinking I'm helpless
Thinking I need this

I never needed you to
Look out for me
So here I go
We left you all alone
feeling less than anybody else

And I don't even care what you’re saying to me
(Woh-ah-oh)
Everyone seems to know what's best for me
(Woh-ah-oh)
You're the only one who wanted sympathy

Thank god I'm not like you
Thank god I'm not like you
Should be thinking of me not you.

But I don't wanna know
You anymore
Fearing nothing
And I hope You're on your deathbed
And your Losing everything That you love

So in the end when you look back on your life
Remember that we had it right
Remember we had it right

So here I go
We Left you all alone
feeling less than anybody else

And I don't even care what you’re saying to me
(Woh-ah-oh)
Everyone seems to know what's best for me
(Woh-ah-oh)
You're the only one who wanted sympathy
(Woh-ah-oh)
Face down in the dirt is where you'll be
You're the only one who wanted sympathy

I'm not going to fuck this up
I know what is best for me
I'm not going to fuck this up
I know what is best for me

Lost and alone from all those
empty words That you spoke
Hope you choke On your tounge
And your lungs Start to bleed
When you see me
and how well that I've done for myself
I'm not quite there but I'm trying

And I don't even care what you’re saying to me
(Woh-ah-oh)
Everyone seems to know what's best for me
(Woh-ah-oh)
You're the only one who wanted sympathy

Thank god I'm not like you
Thank god I'm not like you
Should be thinking of me not you.
Thank god I'm not like you
Thank god I'm not like you
Thank god im nothing like you
Track Name: Red Sweater
Well life’s too short
You’re too young to quit
Why do you have to go
Why don’t you stay a bit
She left a note
On the fridge
Telling me lets do it again
Well I say you should have stayed

Now coffee’s black
And my sheets too thin
Maybe if we get real close
I can take her hand
But she left a note one again
Telling me lets just be friends
Well I say guess that’s the end
She left a note once again
Telling me lets just be friends
well I say guess that’s the end

(F**K, guess that’s it…)
Track Name: Wasted
Another tough spot I'm put in
I'm looking in you're eyes
On the floor of your room
You're so scared it's unfair
I wouldn’t do that to you

Another wrong move I’m making
I don't want it all
I just wanted you
So everything I said I was
Ashamed

I've never done this before
you know I wasted all your love
I've never done this before unless
I'm wasted

I know I never said it
But I think I'm in love
I'm wasted on the corner
Of McKinley and look
I know that you can hear this
Won't you pick me up
I'm wasted
Wasted without you

So look around something's missing
That spot on the floor
We don't lay anymore
You can't take a heartbreak
And I wouldn't do that to you

So why did I go
I can't let go
How did you know I'd mess this up?

What can I do
I always lose
What can I say to make this up to you?

I know I never said it
But I think I'm in love
I'm wasted on the corner
Of McKinley and look
I know that you can hear this
Won't you pick me up
I'm wasted
Wasted without you

I know I never said it
But I think I'm in love
I'm wasted on the corner
Of McKinley and look
I know that you can hear this
Won't you pick me up
I'm wasted
Wasted without you

And I know
That I'll never see you again
But I hope
That I do

And I know I never said it
But I think I'm in love
I'm wasted on the corner
Of McKinley and look
I know that you can hear this
Won't you pick me up
I'm wasted

I know I never said it
But I think I'm in love
I'm wasted on the corner
Of McKinley and look
I know that you can hear this
Won't you pick me up
I'm wasted
Wasted without you

I know I never said it
But I think I'm in love
I'm wasted on the corner
Of McKinley and look
I know that you can hear this
Won't you pick me up
I'm wasted
Wasted without you
Track Name: Only Gets Better
I get you under the stars
I get you liquored and you're falling apart
I get the hate boiling in your heart
You know It's too easy

I'm the one who makes you hate your life
The one who makes everything feel so uptight
The metal in your bones is
The proof you're not alone

Why can't you live without me
Why can't you give me up

Can you feel me
As I hide under your skin
I mess up everything that you think you need a lot
I mess up everything that you think you need a lot
And you say that you’re empty
And you prey on a weaker soul
I bring the rain
To mess up your weather
Wait for the sun
It only gets better

I keep you in the dark all alone
You never knew that life could be this hard
And now I know
If you let me in I'll never let you go

I make you bring out the worst in everything
But this is something that you never see
You want the best of you
But the best of you is me

Why can't you live without me
Why don't you ever think of me

Can you feel me
As I hide under your skin
I mess up everything that you think you need a lot
I mess up everything that you think you need a lot
And you say that you’re empty
And you prey on a weaker soul
I bring the rain
To mess up your weather
Wait for the sun
It only gets better

If I can make it through this
I can make it through anything
I promised my self
I wouldn't give up
If I can make it through hell
It makes everything seem less important
I Keep telling myself
That I won't give up

Can you feel me
As I hide under your skin
I mess up everything that you think you need a lot
I mess up everything that you think you need a lot
And you say that you’re empty
And you prey on a weaker soul
I bring the rain
To mess up your weather
Wait for the sun
It only gets better

I bring the rain
To mess up your weather
Wait for the sun
It only gets better
Track Name: Sentiment
Sit here on your bed
I wish I would've known
You were a liar
You took advantage of my love
If I could go back
And not ever meet you I would
Who would've thought my first love
Wouldn't be good Know I know
I can't ever trust my lonely soul

We both know
You’re so terrible at best
Faking sentiment like this
Is unfair that you
never think of me

Never let me far enough to stay
Out of your life
Finally realize that you were fake
And all of your lies
It's over
Im never gonna see you again

My friends abandoned
You took away my youth
I was so stupid
To think that you'd be true in the end

This isn't anything like
How it's supposed to be
You told me everything right
Just to get close to me
I can't ever trust my lonely soul

We both know
You’re so terrible at best
Faking sentiment like this
Is unfair that you
never think of me

Never let me far enough to stay
out of your life
Finally realize that you were fake
And all of your lies
It's over
Im never gonna see you again
And I think you know why
You cut open my heart to
See if I can still survive

I'll survive
I don't need you, we'll
The truth is you're so insecure that you need someone to latch on
We'll not me
You've cut me from the knees
And now I'm nothing
but I’m learning how to grow again
So just
Stay out of my life
Finally realize that you were fake
And all of your lies
It's over
I'm never gonna see you again
Track Name: Splintered Sunrise
The last thing I remember
Was waking up to a splintered sunrise
Through the cracks of my eyelids
And when the summer settled
so did my mind
But somehow life keeps bringing me back
I just remember thinking
Thank god
I never wanted this at all

I use to lay outside and look at the constellations
I never felt so small
Thank god
I never wanted this at all
So thank god

Cuz everything kept
pulling me back in the motions
I got out, I got out
So thank god, I Got out
I knew I had to
but I cant believe I got out
Cuz everything kept
pulling me back in the motions
I got out, I got out
so thank god, I Got out
Track Name: Home
This isn't fun and games
We're on the road again
And when we get back home
We ignore our friends
We're predisposed
To be alone again
This isn't fun and games
Until the story ends
So please forgive
All of our sins
This isn't fun and games
Until the story ends

This isn't fun and games
Until the story ends
Track Name: Graves
All my friends are dead
Feeling left out of
All I ever had
(yaahhhhh)
People love this scene
But so quick to turn their backs on me
Everybody wants to lead
But they're competing
I will live not die
Can't rely on anyone
Everybody let their dreams go
Fade away from what they hoped

In the end I don't want to be friends
I want to be selfish
That's what everyone tells themselves
It's like they never need any help
But I'm different

All my friends are dead
Feeling left out of
All I ever had
Was a choice
Was the noise
Was the shaking of my voice
Maybe I'll wake up and end it just like all them
But I'm different

Now I'm feeling it
The dirt that's on my fingertips
Sweaty palms and shaky knees
The voice that's telling me to swing

In the end I don't want to be friends
I want to be selfish
That's what everyone tells themselves
It's like they never need any help
But I'm different

All my friends are dead
Feeling left out of
All I ever had
Was a choice
Was the noise
Was the shaking of my voice
Maybe I'll wake up and end it just like all them
But I'm different
I’m Different
I’m Different

All my friends are dead
Feeling left out of
It’s all I ever had
