Track Name: Over This
It didn't make sense when you said you want to leave
Cause the constant bullshit that I believe
Would deceive me and believe me
That you leaving would be so appealing

I've had enough of this bullshit
I never thought that you would do that

Talk about what you're scared about
Like you're more about all the things you doubt
Fuck this I'm over it
I'm over you and I'm over this
Go cry like you have a side
Like you always lie, always all the time
Tough shit I'm done with it
I'm over you and I'm over this
Track Name: Cut Throat
So tell me what you want
I gave you all you need
I hope that's not enough
To get you to believe
Drop out of this old resentment
Follow up with a good decision
It's your choice to voice opinions
But you know I don't like that

I hope you take this straight through the heart
Because you know it was doomed from the start
And you surely played out your part
Girl I hope that you know that I am cut throat

Weren't you the same one that I waited at the door for
Guess what I'm not who you think
This time I'm all that you need
Heads up in the times we live in
Stepped up out of my division
Worst think was your opinion
Cause you know it's just like that

I hope you take this straight through the heart
Because you know it was doomed from the start
And you surely played out your part
Girl I hope that you know that I am cut throat

So drop the act that always bothered me
Walk away if you don't believe
That this is something that we can achieve
Cause I can bet you never felt for me
Take the time so you can realize
That I didn't hide what I felt inside
And if you doesn't hurt then I know you lied
Good luck with no one by your side

So drop the act that always bothered me
Walk away if you don't believe
That this is something that we can achieve
Cause I can bet you never felt for me
Take the time so you can realize
That I didn't hide what I felt inside
And if you doesn't hurt then I know you lied
Good luck with no one by your side

I hope you take this straight through the heart
Because you know it was doomed from the start
And you surely played out your part
Girl I hope that you know that I am cut throat
Track Name: All Too Far
Do you remember when you saw me
2009 I think it's funny
How we met again after so long
At the park fair they played our song
That's just when you came up to me could it be
But still I didn't see me falling for you

It's all too far
I've got nothing to lose
But the mindset of you
Like way back in school
When I avoided you

You grabbed my hand I walked away from
You the day you said this is love
People change so have some faith
Cause somebody's gonna find you on another day

It's all too far
I've got nothing to lose
But the mindset of you
Like way back in school
When I avoided you
And how could I forget
The way you pretend
Like I'm glad that we met
Still I avoided you

I avoided you

It's all too far
I've got nothing to lose
But the mindset of you
Like way back in school
When I avoided you
And how could I forget
The way you pretend
Like I'm glad that we met
Still I avoided you

It's all too far
I've got nothing to lose
But the mindset of you
Like way back in school
When I avoided you
And how could I forget
The way you pretend
Like I'm glad that we met
Still I avoided you
Track Name: Pinhook
I know you think I'm an asshole
But you never even took the time
To get to know me like you should have
That's not a bad thing
I'll keep you waiting
And soon you will see
Why this is so frustrating

So why can't we ever get enough
I guess the party isn't over till it's done
So why can't we ever get enough
I guess the party isn't over till we say it's done

Now I know I'm an asshole
Cause I feel that you will not forget me
And the way I stayed in your dreams
You're torn to shreds
Cut throat at best
Just look ahead of me
Guess you thought that I would forget it
Looks like we both still regret it
I should have left the moment you let it
Slip up I'm sure you can't forget it

Because I'm tripping on my night stand
Trying to get to her
It's like my head is spinning
All around the world

So why can't we ever get enough
I guess the party isn't over till it's done
So why can't we ever get enough
I guess the party isn't over till we say it's done

So tell your friends that we're not the same
We are just different in our own ways
So tell your friends that we're not the same
We are just different in our own ways

And I know
There's nothing you could do
That'll make me want to be with you
Look ahead stay alert of the signs
Cause I wouldn't lie
And this isn't right

So why can't we ever get enough
I guess the party isn't over till it's done
So why can't we ever get enough
I guess the party isn't over till we say it's done

So why can't we ever get enough
I guess the party isn't over till it's done
So why can't we ever get enough
I guess the party isn't over till we say it's done
Track Name: Mercury
I confess that I can't stand my ground
At the place I should feel safe and sound
There's a great big wave that tows me down
And I don't know where I should go now
Because the bottom of the barrel never seemed so far
Come on just pull the trigger what are you waiting for
Because you left me there when I was just 18
On my own I feel defeat

And just so you know
I've been sleeping on my porch again
I'm so damn alone
But I guess it's just the way this ends
So I'll walk this road
Till I'm tired of dead commitments
And just so you know
I've been dying to let go of this

We're in a parking lot
That place I go to sleep
The feeling get's a little hotter like mercury
Well I don't believe what you might see
And I won't let you rupture

And just so you know
I've been sleeping on my porch again
I'm so damn alone
But I guess it's just the way this ends
So I'll walk this road
Till I'm tired of dead commitments
And just so you know
I've been dying to let go of this

And just so you know
I've been sleeping on my porch again
I'm so damn alone
But I guess it's just the way this ends
So I'll walk this road
Till I'm tired of dead commitments
And just so you know
I've been dying to let go of this

And just so you know
I've been sleeping on my porch again
I'm so damn alone
But I guess it's just the way this ends
So I'll walk this road
Till I'm tired of dead commitments
And just so you know
I've been dying to let go of this
Track Name: Settler
I'm pacing down the street
I'm facing my reality
That everything I see
Is why I'm feeling envy
Stuck in the middle with you
I'm bruised and brittle and blue
It wasn't faith but the truth
I can't deal with you

I've always felt so fucked with
You made me feel so low
But that's what I get for being like a target
You should know

I'm living my life like I'm not going to rupture
I'm living my life like I'm not going to rupture

I've dropped what made me see
By following authority
It's time to leave the past
And give by best to anything
Like my worst enemy
Of my own memory
You're a short stop
Of an outfit I used to lead

I've always felt so fucked with
You made me feel so low
You always said don't do this
I'm not the one who goes
But that's what I get for being like a target
You should know
When that's when you said I'm living so careless
When I don't

I'm living my life like I'm not going to rupture
I'm living my life like I'm not going to rupture
I'm living my life like I'm not going to rupture
I'm living my life like and I won't fucking rupture

You're settling in a place that will bring me down below
It's really hard to trust you after all that I have known
If you would make a change
I know that you would come up short
Cause it's really hard to be with someone that's not worth my time

Take me back
Get out of my head
And out of my mind
You settler
Take me back
Get out of my head
And out of my mind
You settler
Take me back
Get out of my head
And out of my mind
You settler

Take me back

I'm living my life like I'm not going to rupture
I'm living my life like I'm not going to rupture
I'm living my life like I'm not going to rupture
I'm living my life like and I won't fucking rupture
Track Name: This Damn Life
As I make my way
I start to figure out why I am out of place
Well I don't know where I do belong
The better half of me is dead and gone

Well I can't stop slipping up
Makes me wonder if I'm drunk or not
Maybe stupid like why we overuse shit
These times can't decide
If it's wrong or if it's right or not
Maybe I'm right or wrong to live in
This damn life

You hear the blue birds sing
Isn't it elegant
I swore I'd leave it at this
But forget it
The clock is ticking by
As I waste all my time
The world is not alright
Because I think
I'm just tired of all of this

Well I can't stop slipping up
Makes me wonder if I'm drunk or not
Maybe stupid like why we overuse shit
These times can't decide
If it's wrong or if it's right or not
Maybe I'm right or wrong to live in
This damn life

Well I can't stop slipping up
Makes me wonder if I'm drunk or not
Maybe stupid like why we overuse shit
These times can't decide
If it's wrong or if it's right or not
Maybe I'm right or wrong to live in
This damn life

Well I can't stop slipping up
Makes me wonder if I'm drunk or not
Maybe stupid like why we overuse shit
These times can't decide
If it's wrong or if it's right or not
Maybe I'm right or wrong to live in
This damn life
Track Name: Roadways
So why should I still stick around
After you knocked me down
And then you threw all my shit on the ground
Step out the door I'm heading out

You don't know where you want to go
There's too many times that you've been told
That you shouldn't find another home
If you're still stuck on a broken road

Give in, give out till it's gone

Oh well, oh well
Bet you couldn't tell that I'm fine
Yes I'm better off without you
Oh well, oh well
Better luck in hell with your time
And the time you made me waste on you

Did you really think that I'd let you go
Did you front so I wouldn't know
That it was all about yourself
And how you wanted someone else

You don't know where you want to go
There's too many times that you've been told
That you shouldn't find another home
If you're still stuck on a broken road

Give in, give out till it's gone

Oh well, oh well
Bet you couldn't tell that I'm fine
Yes I'm better off without you
Oh well, oh well
Better luck in hell with your time
And the time you made me waste on you

Oh well, oh well
This is my farewell
And I still hope for the best
Although this time was hell
And only time will tell
If this is what could really help
But that's not good enough
My time was meant for someone else
But why do I still feel the fall

Why didn't you let me know
That it was dark and so alone
When you're torn within your own
And you need to find a home
But there's a broken road
That leads you to nowhere fast
Stuck between parked cars that crash
I only knew your better half
Why couldn't that last

Oh well, oh well
Bet you couldn't tell that I'm fine
Yes I'm better off without you
Oh well, oh well
Better luck in hell with your time
And the time you made me waste on you
Track Name: Sleep
Well I can't explain the things left on my mind
But rest assured it's a good use of my time
And it's crazy how we didn't know
Just how far this thing could go
But that's okay are you with me
You could trust me if you're ready

Cause I'd walk around every city street
Just so that I can sing you to sleep
So keep listening
I'm still hear if you are missing me
And I won't live
To see the day that you are pissed at me
You're not another memory but
The one I can sing happily to sleep

And it takes a lot for me to feel this way
But with you this feeling comes so naturally
Cause I could stand around and talk with you
Though we both still have so much to do
But that's okay are you with me
You could trust me if you're ready

Cause I'd walk around every city street
Just so that I can sing you to sleep
So keep listening
I'm still hear if you are missing me
And I won't live
To see the day that you are pissed at me
You're not another memory but
The one I can sing happily to sleep

I've been a bit of a fool
I'm just crazy
It's just the way that I feel
And just maybe
You make me feel this way

Because you're staying on my mind
And now my mind is making time for you
The way I do I think of you
The way I always wanted to

Would you like that
Cause I like that girl

Cause I'd walk around every city street
Just so that I can sing you to sleep
So keep listening
I'm still hear if you are missing me
And I won't live
To see the day that you are pissed at me
You're not another memory but
The one I can sing happily to sleep
Track Name: Get Bad
Live it up always
And you'll be alright
Not a thing to lose
Get bad

I've been caught in my old bad habits
These day I know you think it's tragic
I know you'll never come around
It's times like these when you're on the ground
You need a little bit less of my time
Just hopped in a cab out of your life
Did you see how hard it was to decide
On the way to go to be alright

But by now you know I'm gone

You can find me out by the underground city
Where we drink so much that we all feel shitty
If the money isn't there the girls will never be pretty
Till we drink a few
If we sleep all day to stay up all night
I think we'll be okay roll on the good times
Live it up always and we'll be alright
Not a thing to lose
Get bad

I had a close call in a parking lot
Where I grew up fast and ran from all these things
They would never understand me
We came up short so we hit the ground running
I left you there so I didn't see it coming
These long nights and awful fights
Would eat at me most all the time

But by now I know you're gone
Till then I know you're wrong

You can find me out by the underground city
Where we drink so much that we all feel shitty
If the money isn't there the girls will never be pretty
Till we drink a few
If we sleep all day to stay up all night
I think we'll be okay roll on the good times
Live it up always and we'll be alright
Not a thing to lose
Get bad

I cracked the screen on my telephone
Don't want to hear you bitch
Don't want to hear you moan
And if you keep this up I'm not coming home
I'm better off alone without you baby

You can find me out by the underground city
Where we drink so much that we all feel shitty
If the money isn't there the girls will never be pretty
Till we drink a few
If we sleep all day to stay up all night
I think we'll be okay roll on the good times
Live it up always and we'll be alright
Not a thing to lose
Get bad

You can find me out by the underground city
Where we drink so much that we all feel shitty
If the money isn't there the girls will never be pretty
Till we drink a few
If we sleep all day to stay up all night
I think we'll be okay roll on the good times
Live it up always and we'll be alright
Not a thing to lose
Get bad
