Track Name: The Lives We Fear
Maybe if I said something a bit more meaningless
than possibly I could make my father proud of the things I’ve done.
Throw blood, reckless, onto paper.
You can’t expect me to take the same roads so many have crawled down before.
I am fine with dying with regrets
as long as I’ve never stopped making attempts
at the sky and tearing down the stars.
It never felt right to sit back-letting life pass me by.
Saying I could have, would have but never fucking tried.
I'll take my chances with the late nights, the bitter arguments.
We’ll get by on the skin of our teeth I’ve never needed more

I'll takes my chances with the harsh criticism and the failed relationships

We’ll get by on the skin of our teeth I’ve never need more

I have it all, I never needed more than a bag
full of clothes and a fucked up van.
Just give me 20 minutes to sweat out the feeling
give me 20 minutes to run my self dead.
This is my outlet, this is my mid life crisis.
Though it started at 16 I don’t plan on seeing 30.

I'll stays thankful for the hand outs, thankful for the chance
Track Name: Sleepless
I could say almost anything right now
I’m not too good with closed lips.
I’m not too good with awkward silences

And with a slip of my tongue...
those nights turn to shit,
this friendship could turn to shit.
Thrown to the wind, every breath, every word,
every action defined in a second of my thoughtless emotions

Taking a chance with our time spent sitting
and laughing about embellished stories,
regaling each other with our most embarrassing moments.
You’ll chain smoke the night away
and I'll keep talking to the point that most would be annoyed
but you never say shut your fucking mouth.
I would give anything to say what I think right now.

Ask me a question and I'll do my best to not lie
but if I say what’s truly on my mind.
You are the price I‘d pay.
