Track Name: Suffer
get a grip take a sip get a hold of things
get some rest take a breath can you think straight
how do i face the facts when i'm flashing back
from the moment you left to the first date
maybe i'm a little obsessed or i'm a little possessed but
my body's acting on its own
and when i come to i find you screaming over the phone

i wanna know that you're miserable
you can't be invincible
i wanna know

this might be a mistake
but jealousy is the only thing that's keeping me awake
a total masochist i'm addicted

i just keep digging myself deeper
i love how the dirt feels around my throat
read over all the things you wrote
i just keep digging myself deeper
and i swore you were a keeper
i love how my name sounds on your throat
read over all the things you wrote
i just keep digging myself deeper

i wanna know that you're miserable
you cant be invincible
i wanna know

this might be a mistake
but jealousy is the only thing that's keeping me awake
a total masochist i'm addicted
i could have been over this before
but i would kill to see you suffer a little more
i admit i'm a prick i'm addicted
Track Name: Why, Though?
When I told you that it wouldn’t take you long
Using words that fit inside your favorite song

Would you be surprised when I take the ties and
Cut em up cut em up every once in a while
And I hope that you remember when
We lost it all.
Oh and let’s say that I’ll pretend
To smile.

We can retrace these steps back to when we fell apart (Fell Apart)
Or we can catch a taxi cab back to the start.
But don’t
Tell me if you notice that we have gone too far
You should already know it’s for the best

When I told you that it wouldn’t take you long
Using words that fit inside your favorite song
And I hope that you remember when we lost it all.
Oh and let’s say that ill pretend to smile when you’re gone
To smile when you’re gone.

We can retrace these steps back to when we fell apart (Fell Apart)
Or we can catch a taxi cab back to the start.
Tell me if you notice that we have gone too far
You should already know it’s for the best.

Another fork in the road
Two separate paths for the two of us (the two of us)
Sometimes these roads lead
To the same dead end
So when you’re drawing near
You’ll find me standing here
Under the streetlight
I've been waiting all night (All night)
Just to extend a hand to you
Track Name: The Real Thing
am i tripping i feel the clock ticking
as i pace a trench into the carpet (consider this it's meaningless)
to all the voices over mine i'm begging you to stop (they're not worth it)
we're all so impatient yet patiently anticipating that knock
you crash through my life like an ocean
filled with emptiness death and erosion
and our clothes fall like raindrops on the carpet
am i sensing a cop out are you trying to walk out on me
so how do we decide who deserves to be happy

they're not worth it

i'm locking the door
you stare from the floor
and ask me for more
i'm locking the

a killer smile that whispers beware
so i move as if i'm in a nightmare
now our bodies are twisting your eyelids are lifting
do you see what i see
no

if i could just come on
and clench my finger while it's resting on the trigger
what am i waiting for
maybe if i give it one more try you'll fall

i'm locking the door
you stare from the floor
and ask me for more
i'm locking the

so come on
and i'll clench my finger while it's resting on the trigger
what am i waiting for
maybe if i give it one more try you'll fall

i'm locking the door
you stare from the floor
and ask me for more
i'm locking the door
and when i'm depressed this is what i do best
but you're leaving i'm sure
i'm locking the door

we're on and off

a killer smile that whispers beware
so i move as if i'm in a nightmare
Track Name: Rather Be The Fog
these bones may be old but my heart still beats
it's too young to settle for a fleeting face
she's a devil with exquisite taste
i'm shocked and appalled at the way you
can disappear at least twice a year'
am i the only one you call home
they'll put your face on my tombstone

i'll be the city but i'd rather be the fog
that suffocates and suffocates you it wont take long
i'm so stationary and maybe that's what's convincing you to leave
you always leave

you can't just come back
that's how the cycle flows
maybe the next time you're in town
i'll convince you to come around

i said ill be the city but id rather be the fog
that suffocates and suffocates you it wont take long
now i'm no sanctuary and maybe that's what's convincing you to leave
you always leave

really?
Track Name: A Souvenir
you know i'm always on your case and i wont shut up about being safe
and i know you're probably scared to death when
every step leads further through the unknown
i'd never turn my back on my own
if you remember anything when you're grown
remember i'm so proud of you

hey kid here's to you
hey kid cheers yo you

my body's aching breaking barely making it to
the end of this journey that i took for you
and eventually you'll see this gift to you from me is all you need

by now you really wanna find your place in that
trap known as the human race
well here's how it's an upward climb

now if you trip and fall through the stratosphere
and you really need a parachute i'm here
don't worry we'll ascend again
who the hell do you think i am

my body's aching breaking i'm barely making it to
the end of this journey that i took for you
and eventually you'll see this gift to you from me is all that you need
Track Name: Chrissy Cashflow
we're always sitting on the sidelines
missing every single deadline
break the skin and dive into your fears
we spend each day saying are we gonna make it
swallowed up in debt and then we celebrate it
and now we're finding out maybe we don't have it all figured out

cold hard cash your possessions and your pride
what do you get to keep when you get across the great divide
life has a bone to pick with you death has a job to do

and it wont be easy

it's the middle of the night i find myself in a cemetery
and all of the residents curse me with envy
put yourself in their shoes get a bit impromptu
grab life by the collar and live it how you want to

cold hard cash your possessions and your pride
what do you get to keep when you get across the great divide
life wants to teach you a thing or two death has an attitude

take look in your own eyes and say leave it to me
cold hard cash your possessions and your pride
what do you get to keep when you get across the great divide
