Track Name: BLED SO DRY
We keep moving
And a we keep talking
And a we keep seeking
And a we keep fighting

You are a parasite
Leeching off me
Taking from me
I don't like it for a second
Not for a second
Not for a second
Not for a second

Keep your hands off of me
Put your eyes to the ground
Stay away from where I am
Cut your tongue outta your mouth

We keep moving
And a we keep talking
And a we keep seeking
And a we keep fighting

You've adjusted yourself like a wolf in sheep’s clothes
You cling to ideas for fragments of social capital
You pretend to be a friend when there's something to gain
You're a wound in an injury now bled dry
You're a book of lies written of lie after lie after lie after lie

Bled so dry

Wandering so far away
You say too much
You speak so loud

Wandering so far away
The words just fall
The words just fall out

Cut your tongue

Cut it
Track Name: DRAGGING ON
Breaking my back to see what you see
All the pavement cracked, you did this to me
Walkin' and a walkin' and walkin' too long
Runnin' and you're runnin' and you're runnin' along

I cant say
Where I should be
Every step ahead
Is two steps I dread
Like boots on the-ground
Stomping around
The world starts a-shaking
I'm falling far down

Pull me from my knees by a leather leash
All the dirt tracks, you make me believe
Movin' yeah we're movin' yeah we're movin' all wrong
Dragging and a dragging and a dragging it on

Hands on the ground I'm just trying to breathe
One more time and I think I should leave
Warpin' and warpin' and warpin' your speech
Lying and a lying and a lying to me

I don't know about this anymore
Every window shuts and there goes the doors
I cant get myself from the floor
All you really want is more and more

All you really want is more and more and more and more and
Track Name: NAILBITER
Naysayer say no again
Let em speak you plead and plead
But its killing you
And its killing me
It's all I see
It’s killing me

Nailbiter, nailbiter, nailbite
Nailbite

Naysayer say no again
Let em speak you plead and plead
But its killing you
And its killing me
It's all I see
It’s killing me

Nailbiter, nailbiter, nailbite
Nailbite

Nailbiter, nailbiter
Track Name: OUT OF TIME
I’m trying and I’m trying
And I’m looking for another line
I try and so hard I try
Yet I haven't got the time

In the mirror I see
An older version of me
My hairs a mess
My bones don't get rest
My skin thins out from all the stress

You wish to be what you wish to be
But wishing is just one of the steps
What happens when it doesn't work
What more can you expect?

Convinced that you're weak
That you've seen better days
That you'll turn the other cheek
That it won't ever go away

Breaking
Breaking
Breaking
Breaking
Track Name: BREATHE AGAIN
And the sails takes me down through the setting sea
It moves me away to where I cannot stay

But it is a relief
A staunch difference in its reprieve
For a moment or two
I can breathe
And where I've gone I cannot see

No matter where the time has gone
They're always short, they’re never long
I wish I could just keep away
To where I cannot say
But even if it's just a means to an end
I can at least breathe again
I can at last breathe again
Track Name: COLD WAR
You are wasting all of our time
Working so hard on line after line
You fucking do this every single time
Now thinking yourself something divine

Looking for more

Looking for more in a cold war
You're looking for more

Embracing a type you wanna be
No recourse, no sincerity
Lie to your friends so you can pick and choose
Making it up so you don't have to lose

Looking for more

Looking for more in a cold war
You're looking for more

You eat and eat and eat away
Take and take and take away

It's not different because it’s you

You are the issue
You are the problem
You eat and take and
Say you're all better
But you are like the rest
Like the liars
Like the billers
Like the proud
Like the red
Like the bones of all men
Track Name: THERE'S NOTHING FROM YOU
Won't tally the days that I've lost on you
It'll only prove that I've been so used
Don't remind me about the past or the future
You've made it clear that this lasts forever
And ever and ever

Torn between
What I want and what I need
Struggling to be
Seen the way I see

Compartments in my head
To store all the trouble
Trying and trying
Not to burst my bubble

Defeated, reprimanded
I'm made an example
Stuck in the push
Stuck in the pull

Hook me to the wall
Cause I'm going nowhere
Take out the blades
Make me bleed and stare

And it's no help
Its nothing from you
It's no help
Its nothing from you

It's no help
You're pulling me down
Holding my neck
Just to drown and drown
Head underwater
Gasping for air
Reaching for more
But I'm never there

Taking out every single little thing
I struggle to see
What I'm supposed to see

You're in my head
That's what you've said
Cant shake it
Won't make it
Let me rest in my bed

I've been washed out
Bleached and left aside
You ruin everything
That makes me feel alive

But you're all I have
You make me need
You strike at my legs
Bring me down to my knees

And it's no help
Its nothing from you
It's no help
Its nothing from you

It's no help
You're pulling me down
Holding my neck
Just to drown and drown
Head underwater
Gasping for air
Reaching for more
But I'm never there

Crawling for my breath
But you wont let me have it

Crawling for my breath
But you wont let me have it

Crawling for my breath
But you wont let me have it

Crawling for my breath
But you wont let me have it

And it's no help
Its nothing from you
And it's no help
Its nothing from you
And it's no help
Its nothing from you
And it's no help
Its nothing from you

From you
Track Name: I BETTER CHANGE
Maybe I'm a curse
Happy with me for a second
But it doesn't last
And you're not the first

Everyone everywhere
Shines so brightly
When I'm around
When y'all around

Spend a night away
And it's like a broken spell

All of a sudden I've been wrong
And honestly I am not doing very well

Everyone's unreliable
But I'm no better
I'm not better

Happy with me for a second
But its just a second
Just one second

Can't be me
I can't be me
All these thoughts in my head
They all want me dead

So I repress
I push away
I'm failing to get better
Every day

You've gotta change
You say to me
I've gotta change

I'm no good the way I am
There's something to change
I better change

Maybe I'm a curse
Happy with me for a second
But it doesn't last
And you're not the first

Everyone everywhere
Shines so brightly
It's getting to me
It's getting me
Track Name: THIS HOUSE IS EMPTY
I don't know where I've been
No, I do not know where to go
It's all drifting away
Once in my life but now you're out the door

I go see a doctor
I look up a shrink
But each step does falter
Don't quite know what to think
Guess now I'm gonna sink
Yeah I'm gonna sink
Yeah I'm gonna sink
Yeah yeah yeah yeah I'm gonna sink

This house is so empty now
But all the memories still remain
Every car I hear from the window
Gives me a little hope that you're back again

Minutes turn to hours
The shadows become fear
I am my own worst enemy for all of the last 10 years

I poisoned the well and brought in the sick
Sweat and cough until my eyes go black
Got no power to crawl out from this shit
But I'm just so tired I want it all back back BACK
Track Name: JAGGED TEETH
Daggers break thread
And we are everything and naked again
The swill of swine and tax or tithe
Lay down a seldom sermon
Dethroned from your perch of greatness
Mad kings shall swear to the same fate
Destiny, the seer bellows
From the caves over yonder
The echoes sew themselves into your dreams
And temptation becomes fleeting
As the birds chirping dribbles into droning
Only a cleansed palette can allow you a taste
But your mouth so full of dirt and grime
Can never lick through the layers of slime
You've got spiders drooling from your lips
Snakes around your throat like a noose
Your hands blister from this dry heat
Skin cracking from every blow you treat
Back hunkered over
Wind blows away your cover
You suck away at water skins full of mead
Regret every moment you've squandered on greed
My friend, I say to you
My friend will you come back to me?
No, you speak through jagged teeth
This is the storm before the calm
One day my life will change
And I wont need your help anymore
