Track Name: Eventually
I don't deal with estimations anymore
I always come up way too short.
It's a funny thing the way we predict things to be
Cause someone always has other plans for me

Shouldn't have to waste my time (shouldn't have to waste my time)
Shouldn't have to waste my time

The most destructive force is silence (Trust me)
Disappointment comes in waves (I wish you'd tell me)
Cant believe this happened again
Should've said we'd just be friends
I could've been happy
Eventually

What if things had went my way
Could I really say that i'd be ok
Could've shared a smile together
Who says a smile should last forever

Shouldn't have to waste my time (shouldn't have to waste my time)
Shouldn't have to waste my time

The most destructive force is silence (Trust me)
Disappointment comes in waves (I wish you'd tell me)
Cant believe this happened again
Should've said we'd just be friends
I could've been happy
Eventually

I know how this goes
Don't say I didn't waste my time

I know (trust me)
How this goes (I swear I'll be happy)
Don't say I didn't waste my time

I know (trust me)
How this goes (I swear I'll be happy)
Don't say I didn't waste my time
Track Name: Victorious
I remember when we first met
red lipstick on your cigarette
you smiled right in my direction
you were spoiled by affection
How couldn't I see right through it
I must've been somewhat lucid
When I told you that I want to
see this thing right through

is that my cue
to shoulder all the blame

your vanity is killing me
it blinds the best of us
but in your case enough is enough
but i fell by the wayside
I can't believe my eyes
I wonder if you'll ever swallow your pride
I bet you'd fucking choke

1 2 3 4 times we fought
but in the end its all for naught
it seems like my fault everytime
our downfall stemmed from your design
this songs for you
so you can get a clue
you quit so much I'm losing track
walk out the door and don't come back

I hope it hits you in the ass

your vanity is killing me
it blinds the best of us
but in your case enough is enough
but i fell by the wayside
I can't believe my eyes
I wonder if you'll ever swallow your pride
I bet you'd fucking choke

on your words its the same old story
they always bore me
i've reached the end
I'm tired of the lies
(Forget that, im not over it)
and i'm running out of tries
(You made sure I could not forget)
Im leaving you
(That we were such a perfect fit)
How could you quit on me


your vanity is killing me
it blinds the best of us
but in your case enough is enough
but i fell by the wayside
I can't believe my eyes
I wonder if you'll ever swallow your pride
I wonder if you'll ever swallow your pride
I bet you'd fucking choke
Track Name: Excuses
I've been falling way behind since the day I left
what i took with me was my best
i cant shake this feeling that i left you with my worst
But its not the first time that it hit me like a wave
the moments that we share they falter and fade
I'm grasping at straws trying to bring those feelings back

Oh please just bring them back

I want to see you before your funeral
I want to see you before we die
cant put down the photo album
all the times keep thinking about them
I know I'll see you real soon

Remember the days when we were just thirteen
the youngest punks that you've ever seen
climbing through windows and boiler rooms
in the abandoned river city
Fast forward some years and we've grown apart
I moved down south, you stayed at the start
I said i couldn't be home, had to roam
Now I've run out of excuses

I want to see you before your funeral
I want to see you before we die
cant put down the photo album
all the times keep thinking about them
I know I'll see you real soon

I promise I'm coming
I'm driving as fast as I can
I'm running in circles
trying to figure out who I am
I'm sorry, I gave you nothing but static lately
I've got half a hundred messages from sixteen different people
But all I've got time for is me

I want to see you before your funeral
I want to see you before we die
cant put down the photo album
all the times keep thinking about them
I know I'll see you real soon
Track Name: Lifeline
I wanna hop in the car and take 95 north until I can't drive anymore
You can come too, I'll take the whole damn crew
We'll sing this song 'till our lungs get sore:

Just throw me a lifeline
Cause this state is sinking fast
And these limestone cities will wash away
When the ocean swallows them back
You know we're drowning in this nightmare
I wish I could say it weren't so
But at the end of the day, at least I can say
I'll always love to hate my home

An exponential atmosphere of agitation
Grows to choke us like humidity
An existential crisis, we're trapped in our vices
And it feels like we'll never be free
Everyone's so vapid and boring
This monotony will never end
We all just fake it, it's make or break it
But thank god I've got my friends

throw me a lifeline
Cause this state is sinking fast
And these limestone cities will wash away
When the ocean swallows them back
You know we're drowning in this nightmare
I wish I could say it weren't so
But at the end of the day, at least I can say
I'll always love to hate my home

I hate that I love this ocean
And the Spanish moss in these trees
Driving down these streets, I can't help but think
How this place has come to shape me

It's thrown me a lifeline
And it'll always be my past
It's my warmth and inspiration
A constant motivation To be the best that I can be

throw me a lifeline
Cause this state is sinking fast
And these limestone cities will wash away
When the ocean swallows them back
You know we're drowning in this nightmare
I wish I could say it weren't so
But at the end of the day, at least I can say
I'll have a place to call my home
Track Name: Rabble Rabble
Tell me what to bitch about

Tell me what to say
Is this the only way
That things get changed around here
I'm a victim of everyone else being victims to their own accord

"Not everything is easy"
"Why don't they want to please me"
I find it easy to just blend in
Say "what's wrong" but no way to end it

I just shake my head and agree, without thinking critically
Then I stop myself

Tell me what you wanted to see in this world
Cause I can tell you it ain't gonna be pretty
Sights all around but it's got it's moments
And hey, like I always say it could be worse than today

I seem to be complacent
with everyone being complacent
or at least talking shit and getting nothing done
Well I guess this is just a stepping stone
"I won't be here for long"
"So why not complain then move along"

Why would I be unhappy with anything in my life
I'm done with all this cheap talk.

Tell me what you wanted to see in this world
Cause I can tell you it ain't gonna be pretty
Sights all around but it's got it's moments
And hey, like I always say it could be worse than today

Rabble Rabble is all we hear
"It's not fair" "it's not fair"
"Why don't I get everything that I want"
"it's not fair" "it's not fair"

Tell me what you wanted to see in this world
Cause I can tell you it ain't gonna be pretty
Sights all around but it's got it's moments
And hey, like I always say it could be worse than today
Track Name: This Polaroid Life
I'm far from proper
you just catch me on my worst side
all the time
here is no room to judge fix or correct
but Im the worst critic there is

welcome to this
polaroid life of mine
I'm gonna take my time
to remember all the good things

I was never perfect until now
since now I don't care about
what I think of me
Always stuck on all the stupid little things
even though they really mean nothing
but from now on I'll just be me
always notice every little detail
down to the spell check error
but when i fuck up i dont really care

welcome to this
polaroid life of mine
I'm gonna take my time
to remember all the good things

I was never perfect until now
since now I don't care about
what I think of me
Always stuck on all the stupid little things
even though they really mean nothing
but from now on I'll just be me

All i've got is this moment
we'll see how far that takes me
and in the end I'll figure out what I want to do
but for now I'll be who I want to be
And sooner or later it's over
the bullshit that I've put up with
and in the end I'll say its better this way
all I've got is this polaroid life
