Track Name: The World is Out to Get Me, I Think...
I feel like a prisoner inside of my head
My brain is the bars and the sentence is my bed
I feel like a lunatic inside of my room
These walls are a padded cell I gotta break through
I feel like a turtle trying to cross a busy street, cause the world is out to get me, i think

Feels like I'm in the gallows when I try to have hope
I just can't breathe my anxiety's the rope
I feel like a polaroid living in the past
I'm trying to step out of frame cause I know it can't last
I feel like a submarine that can only sink, cause the world is out to get me, i think
I feel like an octopus with invisible ink, cause the world is out to get me, i think
Track Name: All My Loneliness Can Afford
You can't pay for your alcohol with loneliness
Even though that's what you need it for
You can't follow your dreams by sleeping through them
But sleep is all my loneliness can afford
I figured you were bound to leave my head
Just like you were bound to leave my side
But I guess that was not to be
I wish things turned out differently
So I'll be seeing you around when I close my eyes tonight

I sing about you shitfaced in the shower
I sing about you lying on the lawn
But you can't pay for love with sappy love songs
Even though I think that's what I write them for

You can't pay for your alcohol with loneliness
Even though that's what you need it for
You can't follow your dreams by sleeping through them
But sleep is all my loneliness can afford
Track Name: Heartbreak on the Rocks
bed still reeks of Seagram's
well let's just pick up where I left off
cause you woke up beside me
and the rest is best left forgot
holes in my socks, heartbreak on the rocks
ignoring all the clocks as I walk away
my phones are always breaking
maybe it is just my subconscious
breaking through my feebleness to block you out
bulletproof vest made of indifference
that I always slip into when you're around
so while 'on a roll
I'll set my self-control on cruise so I don't have to care what happens now
holes in my socks, heartbreak on the rocks
ignoring all the clocks as I walk away
Track Name: The Windows Whisper Wistfully With Me
cold pizza for breakfast but I guess it's 2pm
Indian summer and the trees are bare
it's only partly sunny and the windows whisper wistfully with me
I'm usually alone these days and sleep an awful lot
dreaming day and night of all the love that I have lost
Game Boy Color on the balcony
Indian summer please don't ever leave
it's only somewhat breezy and the fallen leaves beneath my feet
all just rustle restlessly with me
smoke faintly perfumes the air
Indian summer and the trees are bare
it's only partly sunny and the windows whisper wistfully with me
Track Name: Loose Change
loose change in my pockets that I can't explain
spent all my rent last night on beer and pain
fast lane, gotta find myself a shallow grave
don't let me drive, cause i don't wanna be too late
legless light leap years abound
snorting Ibuprofen at the speed of sound
I see my epitaph sweating cold out of the walls
I'm dead last so damn fast with no missed calls
just loose change
spare change ain't a luxury I can relate
spent my last dime on a god damn ketchup stain
your face is a cigarette burn on my brain
you look at me like you never even knew my name
Motel 6 in Decatur
crying in the tub with a Steel Reserve
wet sock vagabond feast on the lawn
instant coffee and Maruchan
and loose change
loose change in my pockets that I can't explain
spent all my rent last night on beer and pain
I'm too late to amount to anything you want
I'm just your loose change
Track Name: Evaporate
mock nocturnal eyes burrow inside my tired lies
and I won't last the night if I don't drown my mind
oh how long the time can last with venom in the hourglass
shaking hands with all your phantoms you despise
I don't know where we go when our sorrows overflow
but I can tell you where I'd like to be
when I'm stuck out in the rain
and land on your window pane
I try to call out your name, as I evaporate
I still remember your name after I desiccate
is it too late to escape my fate?
Track Name: Nothing Left to Fear But Myself
what have I done?
I've let myself become the one thing I swore I'd not be
the devil who reaches for me
but I ain't afraid to die
I've nothing left to fear but myself
look at what I've done
so drunk from poison and blood
for innocence was ripped from my hands
so I bitterly pillage it wherever I can
and now it's so clear
I've nothing left to fear but myself
who can I become?
the damage cannot be undone
I need a place to run
cause I've only ever run from myself
Track Name: self-fulfilling prophecy (boombox demo)
though talk is cheap,
you can't seem to keep your mouth from bleeding you dry
but never so dry you can't cry
it clearly shows that you damn well know how everybody comes and goes
you're just dying way too slow
married to a chemical, you need not try not to fall
buried in a chemical, forget it all
most every night, everyone in sight just drains away your will to fight
for even just some peace of mind
a heart attack keeps all your fears intact
and they never stop coming back
maybe it's just hope you lack
the die is cast, how much longer will you last?
