Track Name: One Of These Days
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
Track Name: Please Reconsider
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
Track Name: Tear Down The Walls
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
Track Name: Hold On
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.
Track Name: Interlude To Overkill
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Out The Door
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
Track Name: Antisocial
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.
Track Name: Not Alone
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
Track Name: All We Do
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
Track Name: Cast The First Stone
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
Track Name: Overload
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
Track Name: Bridges
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.
