Track Name: Headstrong
I've been roaming around for so long, got my mind in the gutter but I still feel so headstrong in my basement, so fucking complacent. But I don't know if I can keep this up, could I borrow your perspective so that i can find what's wrong with me cause you're the person I want to be.

And I've been trying to change, I've been trying but it's hard to draw the line between what's wrong and right when everything you thought was true has secretly been killing you. And I don't know what's left to find, I've lost my fucking piece of mind and I hate myself for growing up to be consumed.

I understand if I'm not who you thought I would be, just a little boy filled with apathy towards a life that didn't pan out like TV. But I still feel the constant strain, getting pulled in a million different ways into places I can't escape while I watch everything I held so close rot away.

And I've been trying to change, I've been trying but it's hard to draw the line between what's wrong and right when everything you thought was true has secretly been killing you. And I don't know what's left to find, I've lost my fucking piece of mind and I hate myself for growing up to be consumed

By the masses, filled with grotesque images in my head but I confess that I can't fucking breathe, suffocating from jealousy of where I want to be.

And I've been trying to change, I've been trying but it's hard to draw the line between what's wrong and right when everything you thought was true has secretly been killing you. And I don't know what's left to find, I've lost my fucking piece of mind and I hate myself for growing up to be consumed.
Track Name: Empty Sheets
I learnt a lot today, like how to take a beating without getting paid and I know I haven't been round in the past few days but it's just a force of habit to procrastinate.

I learnt a lot today, like how to re-assess and re-evaluate all the bullshit decisions and pathetic mistakes that turned me into such a fucking disgrace.

With old scars and broken bones, another night alone in a bed that was built for the two of us but you're not here so do you mind if I sleep in cause I don't think that I can face the world today. You took all that was left of me.

I learnt a lot today, like how to watch someone you love evaporate into something they swore they'd never contemplate cause they couldn't keep there hands from any self-restraint.

I said 'There's no excuse', she looked at me and asked 'But darling what's the use. I know it's premature to draw a fucking noose but this love was gone there was nothing left to lose.'

With old scars and broken bones, another night alone in a bed that was built for the two of us but you're not here so do you mind if I sleep in cause I don't think that I can face the world today. You took all that was left of me.

Pull the shades over my eyes and let another man between your thighs. You've thrown away what we had left, I never wanted second best.
Pull the shades over my eyes and find another to victimise the situation you conceived so run away and let me breathe.
Track Name: Fragments
Another memory filled with relics of regret, “You’ll always have my heart” she said but always seems much longer when it’s not in your head.
And I know you’re looking into his eyes, but you still cross my thoughts from time to time cause my memory is hazy but you’re still clear cut in my mind.

I never thought that we could end up like this, reminiscing on the innocence that held us when we talked about our favourite bands and how you hate your friends, I can’t believe that this is what we’ve come to be.

And every time I picture you he’s standing there with a dead smile looking down cause you ran to him and left me shattered like those bottles on the ground. And was it hard to leave behind everything we worked so hard to find, dismantling my state of mind with nothing but aggression.

And I can’t sleep without thinking of the times we spent together, did you really mean forever?

I never thought that we could end up like this, reminiscing on the innocence that held us when we talked about our favourite bands and how you hate your friends, I can’t believe that this is what we’ve come to be.

How many times do I have to tell myself I’ll be alright before it’s real, cause lately I’ve been talking to myself too much without learning how to heal. And my eyes, they despise anything that reminds me that you’re with him alone tonight cause I don’t want to feel this lonely, I don’t want to feel this lonely.

How many times do I have to tell myself I’ll be alright before it’s real, cause I don’t want to feel this lonely, I don’t want to feel this lonely
