Track Name: Neurotic
If I knew everything it’d be too hard to choose
I don’t know anything and still don’t know what to do
So I go off in my head again

If I had the motive I’d push to make it through
But I’ve debated and there’s nothing worth to prove
So I go off in my head again, I’ll be the same at tomorrow’s end.

I’ll hate me, then I’ll hate to hate

Alone in a room of friends
They’re hard to still relate to
Don’t wanna sink again

I know I could sit right here and repeat all the shit I do
Or I could go to some place I’ve never been to
I wanna go but I’ve got a will so vague
It’s all the same when you’re neurotically plagued.

I’ll wait, yes, I’ll wait
‘Cause always means always

Off in my head again
Anxiety parades and can be my only friend
And I hate mine, I hate mine, so I hate

Alone in a room of friends
They’re hard to still relate to
Don’t wanna sink again
While I love my friends
It’s hard to still relate when
I don’t find comfort in - knowing I could sit right here and repeat all the shit I do
Or I could move to some place I’ve never been to
I wanna go but will it matter anyway?
Cause it’s all the same when you’re neurotic, you’re neurotically plagued.
Track Name: Deviant
When an urge kicks in again
I’m afraid as the thoughts begin
What if I don’t uphold my bargain to remain a friend
And find myself back there again
Keep a secret, play pretend
That I control myself and my desires do surrender

I’ve been waiting on the fence to see what’s right
Having nothing but a vice to hold me tight
But I saw it, and I can’t help but want it, with morbid eyes

And I know it, but I don’t wanna be a let down
If I showed it, you’d think I’m a weirdo
Perverse and void

A compulsive deviant
Appetite surfaced again

And I’ve been waiting on the fence to see what’s right
Having nothing but a vice to hold me tight
I feel like I’m a stranger when I decide
But I saw it, and I can’t help but want it
When her eyes tell me I’m perfect and so wanted
I saw it, I can’t help but want it, with morbid eyes.
Track Name: Cold
just a little more time for my mind on my own
i don't even care where i have to be
i swear i'd even bail on my family
just a little more time ignore the chime on my phone
the blanket fell off now my shoulder's cold
a hollow shell of who i was in the days of old
i told a lie cause i want something to be
a riddle of sorts memorize and repeat
just a little more time and i'll be fine but i don't know
when i'll follow through with those plans we made
go out on one of our classic escapades
just a little more time i don't feel bad this decision i own
the fact is you're no longer priority
this relationship is toxic and bad for me
Track Name: Void
If we keep it up then that’s all we’ll be

I’ll always be that way, I’ll always seek a new way out
When I see through
I’m in a constant haze, I’ll wait here if you want me to

If the worst of the world won’t take me
Would you show me how
To find a light beyond the sun
To find a light beyond the sun, cause oh they won’t take me
They won’t take me

If we keep it up then that’s all we’ll be
Too paranoid to fill the void

I’ll always be that way

Beyond the sun, always, ah, always
If the worst of the world won’t take me
Would you show me how?
To find a light beyond the sun
To find a light…..
To find a light beyond the sun, cause oh they won’t take me
Oh no they won’t take me
Track Name: Still
Hold you up to a light
Your praise is all I would like
When infatuation arrives, I can’t hide

Your time is fine, I’ll sit so still
I know you’re right, change feels surreal
I see my pride cower to fear
I want much more than being here

A new way to view the same life
A glimpse made me come alive
When curious in a smile….
It means more than you know, to know I’ll still grow
Love too young to know, but we’re never alone
Love too young to know
Track Name: Expectations
great expectations let me down again
blinded by selfish lust for everything
i think i should lie down again
desert plants evolve with time

I had a basket that i kept my things inside
I took it with me on a hundred mile ride into the desert this one time

great expectations let me down again
blinded by selfish lust for everything
i think i should lie down again
desert plants evolve with time

I got a canteen but i think it's running dry
vultures are circling the sky

And when you think you really know the man
He walks out leaves you high and dry again
Hyper aware of this staged scene I'm in
I break the 4th wall cause I can

For a reason I can't find
Stuck in the desert about to die

great expectations let me down again
blinded by selfish lust for everything
i think i should lie down again
desert plants evolve with time
Track Name: Waver
Then I got a phone call
I always return
Fell into the same woe
With no excuse to burn

Will one trip off the wire I walk be worth the cost?
Will years it took to build us, measure what we’ve lost?

But I laid awake with you today
And wondered what my life is like alone
Am I afraid, or subdued?

With two paths what is right? I’m lost
I’ve watched my morals rot
And met my inner liar, the coward of my thoughts

And I’m not going anywhere, as long as I stall
If I don’t go anywhere, what’s true?

One waits for better days
While one wanders off, walking the other way
Track Name: Pretender
I know you, and I know that you’ll be somewhere
Eyeing truth, that we would get here one year

So for now, don’t call me to blame
Don’t ask for your time
I don’t wanna know where it has gone, I don’t wanna know where it…

I see you and you’re the same as I remember
A smile true to the art of the pretender, but I know you
And I’ll miss walking for hours
And watching you blow me kisses from the shower, ooo

So for now, don’t call me to blame
Don’t ask for your time
I don’t wanna know where it has gone
Track Name: Storm
Nice little city disrupted by storm
beautiful lightning her hand struck a chord
rational thinking says to stay indoors
but rain is exciting a compelling force
I run to the storm
climb up the mountain holding lightning rod
remember the feeling forget what you're taught
Track Name: Melt
They say to me, you’ll get off the ground,
I want it, but wanted..
To say to you, I can’t be around
But when you speak, I’m drawn in
So I took the hard path today
And dissolved all my pride

Cause’ you melt me

We say it’s true, how could it not be
In our hands, we’re holding
A part of you and part of me
But loose grips will take us

Off and on, we opt to wean though
Off and on feels awful close to dying
Off we are but able tonight
Why off and on when I know that we’re so deserving
Are we ever on our way?

I lost a part of myself today
If your opinion changed
would you still love me anyway?
Are we ever on our way?

Still I took the hard path today
And dissolved all the pride I had
For a chance of all I thought we’d be
And after still ask why

Cause’ you melt me
