Track Name: Stained Sheets
I’m looking at you now
You’re laughable at best
Covered in your stench from last night
Desperate to always make your self right

The walls that I built just to keep you away
never held much ground
Because you're always trying to pillage me
The things that I felt then, never seem to escape

I would rather be asleep than
Rolling around in your stained sheets
Hoping that you spend your nights unwanted and alone
It’s stupid for me to think that you’d miss me
You missed the attention
I just wanted someone to listen

It’s all I ever needed
I always felt defeated

I knew that I couldn’t hold myself to this
Knowing that you’re out there visiting his bed
Banging your head on the head board
Wishing that my name would slip from your mouth again

What do these days mean to me?
While I’m still waiting to feel better with time
How long do you think that it’ll take
For me to forget your face

For me to forget your face

I would rather be asleep than
rolling around in your stained sheets
Hoping that you spend your nights unwanted and alone
It’s stupid for me to think that you’d miss me
You missed the attention
I just wanted someone to listen

I will end up okay, despite all the things that you’d say.
One day we will be civil and I won’t be destroying everything that you ever gave to me
I swear that this is, my final act to tell you, that I still hate you
Track Name: Ashes
You should have known that I would see it through
That I would make this all fall back to you
And I don’t feel Fucking sorry
I was holding on for so damn long
You used to pull me down
Give me false hope
You’re just an empty vessel
Your mistakes we’re cheap

I picked up your ashes off the ground last night
And tried to dispose of this mess that you made for me
Now that we’re washing away, with these memories’ I made
I feel this weight off my shoulders

The time has come I made amends
Now i’m finally able to be myself again
The pressure there once was, I suffered for reason
I used your face as a stepping-stone to the greater things
I hope I’ll see you again; so you can say you were wrong, just tell me you were wrong

I picked up your ashes off the ground last night
And tried to dispose of this mess that you made for me
Now that we’re washing away, with the memories I made
I feel this weight off my shoulders

Every time I said I cared, you looked and rolled your eyes
All the times we ever fucked you said this couldn’t be better
But you’re just a liar (you’re just a liar)

I hope you’re happy on your knees
Cause that’s all you’ll ever be

I picked up your ashes off the ground last night
And tried to dispose of this mess that you made for me
Now that we’re washing away, with the memory’s I made
I feel this weight off my shoulders
Track Name: Kingston
You told me one day
that I’d stop, hating who I am
But all I feel is alone and cold
Broken down and stoned

Back when you gave Randi cigarettes
I was fucking stupid then
And now one drink slowly turns into ten

Stumbling Home
I’m Looking for your Jeep
Too drunk to pick up my feet
A Sad Song about you again
I guess leaving was the best for you
But having you around
I think id be happy too

But I’m Still Thinking about you
4 years later
Dreaming that you came home
And we have been painting this picture for so long
I guess you forgot to sketch me in

I guess you forgot to call
I guess that you didn’t remember at all
I guess that we can blame it on those nights at the bar
I guess Kingston now is just too far

Ill sit here pretending, that I’m worth remembering
At least I remember you
And this is the last song that Ill write about you
At least I’m going to
Fucking remember you
Track Name: Joyride ft Anton DeLost
Slowly eating away, this empty feeling you left inside
Like any sickness, there is a cure.
But with no temptations I’m left unmoved

Breathing In
I tried to hide but you would find me every time
You’re in a drunken spin you’re all over him
It was cold outside, you said that you’d be fine
Then he closed your eyes

I’m Sorry
I can’t find the time
To put in the places I left behind
Confusion, what you said to me
That night in the rain
Won’t make things change

You fooled me once,
it cut right through my skin
Now I’m bleeding out, oh where have you been
The nights downstairs, spent in your room
Do they get to you, Next to god knows who

Id like you to know
My life didn’t end
I may have spent many nights
Trying to pretend
How good this was for me
But knowing all to well
Ill never be the same
Thanks to your fucking mistake

I’m Sorry
I can’t find the time
To put in the places I left behind
Confusion, what you said to me
That night in the rain
Wont make things change

As we walked towards the road
We started getting close
We talked about the past
And why it failed to last
And now you admit its true

It was all about you
But it was all about you

I’m Sorry
I can’t find the time
To put in the places I left behind
Confusion, what you said to me
That night in the rain
Wont make things change
