You won’t miss them after they’re gone and You let out all your coldest thoughts Well they won’t be sitting there Waiting for your pleading lament So don’t go crawling back now after you hurt them I meant what I said and I won’t take it back You need to hear it from me You won’t listen when they try to help You said You don’t care you can take care of yourself So tell me, Why did you take it for granted The help that they gave you open handed I meant what I said and I won’t take it back You need to hear it from me So put your foot back in your mouth and face the facts Cause you’ve burned every bridge that you’ve ever crossed I’m telling you, You’ll regret it one of these days Your friends and family left you in their past Your life is shattered now like a broken glass I’m telling you, You’ll regret it one of these days Its so lonely lost inside my head And all my fears and insecurities Are here for everyone to see Will someone please help me You should feel like its over now Like you’ve lost your only chance I’m telling you, you need to hear it from me So put your foot back in your mouth and face the facts Cause you’ve burned every bridge that you’ve ever crossed I’m telling you, you’ll regret it one of these days Your friends and family left you in their past Your life is shattered now like a broken glass I’m telling you, You’ll regret it one of these days

So you’ve had it, You finally gave up No one seems to care So you’ve must have had enough And you made your plans And you got your bags packed Ran out the door as you Held the tears back Well I’m wondering, I’m wondering Why’d you run away? Why’d you run away? What are you scared of? What did they say? Did you stop to wonder What would happen next? At the final bus stop You’ll be just like the rest So why’d you run away? Chase your dreams cause they’ll never chase you Blindly encourage, that’s what the teachers do And it never comes easy unless you’re born with money So you better start working I’m beggin you honey And I’m wondering, well I’m wondering Why’d you run away? Why’d you run away? What are you scared of? What did they say? Did you stop to wonder What would happen next? At the final bus stop You’ll be just like the rest So why’d you run away? Why’d you run away? Nothing gets solved When you’re doing it that way I know its not that easy I know life isn’t fair But its always worth it Don’t back down from the dare You’ll never get there if you run The bad times are never very fun And I know it hurts when they tell you no Its not because they hate you, its cause of what they know They’ve been there before and they’ve fought their way back They just want whats best for you and nothing more than that So why’d you run away? Why’d you run away? Why’d you run away? What are you scared of? What did they say? Did you stop to wonder What would happen next? At the final bus stop You’ll be just like the rest So why’d you run away? Why’d you run away? Nothing gets solved When you’re doing it that way I know its not that easy I know life isn’t fair But its always worth it Don’t back down from the dare

Tear down the walls and open up the windows Your hatred only shows how very little you know You and I we only have the same purpose To do what we love so just tear down the walls Lets join hands and befriend one another Is it worth it to fight when we could be helping each other You and I we only have the same purpose To do what we love so just tear down the walls

Hold On 03:30
Now is it okay to put all the time that you’ve had In the hands of someone else and expect that they will grasp All the things that you’ve set out to believe in Or maybe thats not the only reason As to why you try to change my views And tell me what’s okay to do But I refuse to let you change What I want to choose Its my life and your life As two completely different things Just believe me that I will be okay When I think I’ve seen it all I fall behind and breathe in everything I’m missing And they were as it seemed Content with living their lives In what they considered godly ways But when you’ve grown up like that in somebody’s opinion They put you on a track but to their own decisions All that is done is judged and can’t just be With the questioning of morals and human beliefs Well just believe me when I say That the good times will pay And every day is a new chance to live in a different way When I think I’ve seen it all I fall behind and breathe in everything I’m missing And they were as it seemed Content with living their lives In what they considered godly ways But when you’ve grown up like that in somebody’s opinion They put you on a track but to their own decisions When you realize that this whole time You’re running on someone else’s track You take yourself back to you and hold on.

Out The Door 03:48
Am I heartless for wanting To get us out of this mess Ashamed to say but Away from this is best Well I hope you’re sorry For haunting my every thought and my dreams I hope and I pray you aren’t waiting for me Cause right now I see what I truly do not need Did you know I still can’t sleep I’ll admit it, It wasn’t the best way You could have stabbed me And I just would have walked away Its piled up now, Look at the mess we’ve made The need to end it Was more than I could explain Did it solve much By leaving And never talking again I hate to say it, We could never be “just friends” Well I know that you know that I’ll never forget you I’ll never be free The time that we spent Was the best time for me But its different now you see I could never drag you through that again And I still can’t sleep I could never drag you through that again Our time was wearing thin I’ll admit it, it wasn’t the best way You could have stabbed me And I just would have walked away Its piled up now, look at the mess we’ve made The need to end it was more than I could explain Our time was wearing thin Waiting for the end to begin It would have never worked out between us You were already out, out the door I’ll admit it, it wasn’t the best way You could have shot me And I just would have walked away It was drastic, leading up to total refrain Love like a movie never Turns out how its portrayed

Antisocial 02:58
Hey, you ought to be ashamed, Cause everything you do tears apart the dream If we don’t act like, dress like, or do the things you do We’re not good enough to be near you What are you waiting for? Tell me who is who. And I know, you always mean the best And I’ve heard all the rest Of all the empty lies you’ve fed me Come on won’t you tell me The next big trend that will set us apart again I will not give in. Hey, so listen to what I say No matter what I do, I chose to be that way And I know you always mean the best And I’ve heard all the rest Of all the empty lies you’ve fed me Come on won’t you tell me The next big trend that will set us apart again I will not give in.

Not Alone 03:14
There’s no point in crying No point in anger I’ve dug my hole and I’ll always dig another Will this be an answer will I finally move on? Time won’t fix my broken soul and I’m not the only one I’ve sat for hours in my car thinking Where did I go wrong I always wind up in the same place That’ll someday be gone Why does it call me? Why do I come? To remember what I had? The park I once loved as a child Has turned to something bad Will this be an answer will I finally move on? Time won’t fix my broken soul and I’m not the only one What am I doing here? Maybe I should leave. No one knows me. I don’t know… Its the way it seems to be 4 years now and nothings changed I’m the way I was before And I’ll always be this way There’s no point in crying No point in anger I’ve dug my hole and I’ll always dig another

All We Do 03:11
She drowns herself inside of her room Letting her thoughts sink into a shame That holds back the woman inside She pleads “what can I do?” All we do is worry about what we don’t want to lose But we have the time to figure out what more there is to do This won’t last forever It takes more than an army to change human eyes But bombs won’t keep me from being alive The turn you’re begging the world will take Is the move you’ll have to make Oh its getting better You’ll be alright cause you know it’s a lie No more wasting time you have On thinking how to try All we do is worry about what we don’t want to lose But we have the time to figure out what more there is to do This won’t last forever It takes more than an army to change human eyes But bombs won’t keep me from being alive The turn you’re begging the world will take It would be in no such place If not a single thing was done at all Optimistic outlooks guide you The rest can take their fall Don’t wait too long the clock is ticking When the time runs out you’ll always miss them Don’t wait too long the clock is ticking Time runs out and this won’t last forever

Well I won’t point fingers and I won’t take names But you’re guilty as charged for all your secret shames Nobody’s perfect, But I know you’re so close Except for those pills that you took 3 times the dose Why do you judge us? We’ve made a mistake We’re obviously flawed in every single way But that doesn’t really matter to you No matter what they say You can’t let it go until you walk away Now when will you learn from your countless mistakes You’ll never hear the end of it until you Put to rest all the hearts you broke How much could it take? Tell me, won’t you tell me what you did this time? Why do you judge us? We’ve made a mistake We’re obviously flawed in every single way But that doesn’t really matter to you Family doesn’t matter to you Hardly if at all You think it doesn’t matter but the time will come You’ll beg for pity but we’ll show you none Stop before you speak and think of what you’ll say You don’t want to regret it when it’s on your judgement day

Overload 03:04
Tonight I sit here with nothing but a blank stare My mind is shutting down my thoughts aren’t around Its too much to take, It tearing me apart My heart is losing the fight I can’t keep this up tonight I can’t wait for the day That this stress has gone away I won’t last one more day My mind can’t take anymore pain Its so close, oh, so very close So very close to the simpler days This week it won’t end I’m feeling overwhelmed again Its just a puzzle that I could never solve There’s too much to do In far too little time Please know when nothing’s done That I did all that I can I’m feeling lost Like something is wrong My mind feels so slow like its caught in the undertow This can’t be real Is this just a dream My torn reflection’s looking back at me My body aches and I feel so weak How much longer till I’ll be free I can’t wait for the day That this stress has gone away I won’t last one more day My mind can’t take anymore pain Its so close, oh, so very close So very close to the simpler days Stay with me through this I know I can take it I promise I’m alright

Bridges 04:10
With a crash your life is over A simple mistake and you won’t come home again It seemed too soon, you were far too young But someone didn’t care and now you’re gone Don’t regret what you do When, your time, it comes for you Don’t hold your breath as you fade away My eyes don’t see what I tell them to The clock is ticking, I’m scared of what I’ll do Its hard to imagine a poison so strong To take the life of everyone But its everywhere and its crawling after you. Oh how it hurts to know that you’re gone I know its not for good, but the void you left is strong I hope you’re safe just follow the light On the bridges to the afterlife I’ll see you someday again, This can’t be the end My eyes don’t see what I tell them to The clock is ticking I’m scared of what I’ll do Its hard to imagine a poison so strong To take the life of everyone But its everywhere and its crawling after you Does it hurt when it ends Is it abrupt like your heart caved in Or is it like falling asleep again.
