Track Name: Say Goodbye
I finally realize that I just bring you down

Didn't know myself when I got off the road
When I got back I didn't feel at home
But then I met you
Showed me a side of life I had never known
Everything was so perfect
Never questioning was this worth it
Of course I knew the risk
But I never thought you couldn't handle it

I'll never understand
How we can go from that to this
Keep telling myself it's just a bad trip
When everything is going so damn right
Break it off before you feel the sting of life
I broke your heart, you fixed mine
Now that we're out of time
I hope you realize
That I can almost feel my arms around you
And I still see you when I close my eyes
I can't stand another day without you
You know I'd drop everything just to be there
Just to be by your side
Yeah I know it's my fault you're leaving
Can't watch you go tonight

Now I know how it feels to say goodbye
Goodbye

Okay I'm gonna get a little bit real,
cuz there's a couple different feelings that I need you to feel
like,
How could you give up
When you knew all along
You were everything to me
You ruined my favorite songs
So fuck everything else cuz I was always there for you when no one wanted to help
Maybe I put you through hell, but fighting everyday ain't so good for my head
I hope that you still see me when you close your eyes

I hope you realize
That I can almost feel my arms around you
And I still see you when I close my eyes
I can't stand another day without you
Yeah I know it's my fault you're leaving
Why you're leaving tonight
So hard to say goodbye

I never wanted to share myself with anybody else
You knew that, I could tell
Hey, Hey
Don't say goodbye
I never want you to change
Love you the way you are
You'll always have a place in my heart
Now I realize that I just bring you down


It's gonna be so hard to live without you
So glad I see you when I close my eyes
Well I could never fall in love without you
It's hard as hell to say goodbye
Please don't Say Goodbye
Track Name: Cringe
If you're looking for another excuse
To open your fucking mouth
Look no further, sure you'll find plenty of material here
Most people only live to move the dirt that they are buried with
that they are buried with
I'll never give up
I will not bow my head
I'll throw my fist up
Your inexperience can't possibly create a valid argument
You're lost in your own life
Make your mistakes on your own time

Lack any motivation just to make simple decisions
Walk around with desperation in your heart and hate in your eyes
It takes some nerve to know you've done nothing for yourself
yet you still question the motives of someone else
You think talking makes you a big man?
Why don't you make something of yourself and then you'll understand
I'd ask you to walk a mile in my shoes
But you're too close minded
Deeper meaning is beneath you

Sometimes I think you're trying to be ignorant
I worked for every shred of success
You're just so apathetic

There's nothing wrong with knowing what it takes to succeed
You can keep this town I'll take everything that I want and ill leave
So strange you're quiet face to face
What a coincidence
You're so bold and confident when you're hiding on the Internet

You don't approve of how I carry myself?
Come again?
Come again?
Don't give a fuck about you so keep my name out of your mouth
You didn't know me then
You don't know me now
How can you preach how much I've changed when you don't even know yourself?

It's almost laughable
Act like you're so free from guilt
Every time I hear you're name I cringe
You're just so weak willed
You're just so weak willed
Every time you speak my name I cringe you're just so hate filled

Lack any motivation just to make simple decisions
Walk around with desperation in your heart and hate in your eyes
It takes some nerve to know you've done nothing for yourself
Yet you still question the motives of someone else
You think talking makes you a big man?
Why don't you make something of yourself and then you'll understand
I'd ask you to walk a mile in my shoes
But you're too close minded
Deeper meaning is beneath you

Sometimes I think you're trying to be ignorant
I worked for every shred of success
You're just so apathetic

There's nothing wrong with knowing what it takes to succeed
You can keep this town ill take everything that I want and I'll leave
So strange you're quiet face to face
What a coincidence
You're so bold and confident when you're hiding on the Internet

You could have anything that you want
But you just sit there. Just sit there and talk
And I feel pity
Not for where you'll end up
But for who you've become
You'll never understand because you think you think you're up above
When I've been fighting for everything I love
You have been challenging my trust
Now you're slipping away
No one has any desire to save
Someone that only acts to save face
I feel pity
Not for where you'll end up
But for who you've become
Track Name: Not A Saint
Well I am sorry, I am not a saint
I wasn't raised that way
Fight for what you love
And watch it fade away
I gave you every piece of me
And now you're taking that away

I'm forever on the edge of failure
Always wondering what it will take to make this heart of mine
To finally feel at, feel at home

I want the part of you
That you refuse to give
The walls you've built around your soul
Will soon wear thin
I know it's hard to let me in
But I swear
That if we stand together
We'll never fall apart
And you will never have to suffer
I will hold on to your heart
You need to find a way
To make it through the day, through the day

I know that is asking a lot from someone like you
I know you're capable,
So don't throw me away
So don't throw me away
We said that we would not allow
Each other to go to waste
To go to waste

I want the part of you that
You refuse to give
The walls you've built around
Your soul will soon wear thin
I know it's hard to let me in
But I swear that if we stand together
We'll never fall apart
And you will never have to suffer
I will hold on to your heart
You need to find a way
To make it through the day, through the day

And now I'm standing around with nothing left to say
There's always something to lose
Learned that the hard way
So sorry I'm not a saint
I wasn't raised that way
But you'll learn that the hard way
Fuck what they say
It's time you learned the hard way

So sorry I'm not a saint
I wasn't raised that way
There's always something to lose
Learned that the hard way

I want the part of you that
You refuse to give
The walls you've built around
Your soul will soon wear thin
I know it's hard to let me in
But I swear that if we stand together
We'll never fall apart
And you will never have to suffer
I will hold on to your heart
You need to find a way
To make it through the day, through the day

I want your soul
Track Name: Weakest Link
When you lose everything that brings you comfort
Will you give up?
Will you let go?
When you lose everything that brings you comfort
And all you have left is yourself
Will you fall down or will you fight the urge to drop your arms?
Will you let go?

Come on get up if you know the drill you know it's never time to stop
you gotta drown that anger and push past everything that you think you need
You only need yourself,
Only as strong as your weakest link
Only as strong as your weakest link
So If you let go tell me where you'll wind up
Gotta make your way can't depend on blind luck
So If you let go tell me where you'll wind up
Gotta make your way can't depend on blind luck

Lost confused and alone
And maybe your heart has never felt at home
But you know one thing that no one else knows
And that's how much you've already been through
You did what you had to

When you lose everything that brings you comfort
And all you have left is yourself
Will you fall down or will you fight the urge to drop your arms?
Will you let go?
Track Name: If I Was The Devil
If I was the Devil
I would bring everyone else down to my level
I would create a living hell in
Order to prepare
An attempt to make every evil word somewhat easier to utter
But that's not me
I'm no saint but I tried to be good, I tried so hard to be understood
You always accuse me of so much
All I can hear are their voices screaming for my blood
You say that I'm the one who fooled you but the honest truth
The honest truth is that I'm the fool
I truly changed for you
But the change in me could never be enough for you

You showed me how good this life could be
but I should've known that losing you would destroy me
I knew how dark this world could be
and now I'm right here trapped inside this distance and it's killing me

Now the world is dead and it's my burden to bear
I live inside of my head this is my punishment
For destroying every shred of humanity that was left
That was left inside of me
I've destroyed so many lives
How did it come to this
I close my eyes and hope I'm someone
Else when I open them
Too many lies now I can't remember
The drugs have made every moment bleed together
I can't believe how fucking far I've fallen
Thought I had this under control, I got lost in the moment
Sometimes you have to lose control,
Numb the fuck up and go with the flow

You showed me how good this life could be
but I should've known that losing you would destroy me
I knew how dark this world could be
and now I'm right here trapped inside this distance and its killing me

The one you loved is dead and buried
He thought he'd get the last laugh, thought he'd get the best of me
Who's laughing now?
Who's laughing now?
HA HA HA
Numb up so I can't give a fuck

You showed me how good this life could be
but I should've known that losing you would destroy me
I knew how dark this world could be
and now I'm right here trapped inside this distance and its killing me
You showed me how good this life could be
but I should've known that losing you would destroy me
I knew how dark this world could be
and now I'm right here trapped inside this distance and its killing me
And it's killing me
Yeah, it's killing me
Track Name: Undesirable #1
Come on

My names been dragged through the dirt
Love me, but suspect me first
You probably assume the worst
But that's okay, I did this myself
You'll ask but I'll never tell
You'll never know me that well
You'll never know me that well

Cuz I'm a snake in the grass
Talk shit, don't take it back
Look close and you'll see
The real despicable me
I tried, I fucking tried and I tried
I'm just too easy to despise
Today I woke up to a miserable scene
Saw my reflection saw the absolute worst in me
Insane, crazy in the worst way
What's crazy is how fast things can change
When they are going your way
Now I've got nothing left
Can't even find the words to say
I finally lost my mind
I finally ran out of time
All or nothing

I know I've just lost my way,
but I never meant to leave such a broken path of pain
Give me a chance please I'll explain
Different perspectives through different eyes
We're not the same
I'm out of touch with everything that I should probably feel inside

I am the worst person I know
I never had a heart and I just sold my soul
All my friends are dead, my girlfriend left,
and I've got way too many voices inside of my head
They're screaming
"I am the worst person I know"
You want a heart to hear?
I'll let you know
I am the worst person I know

I will not be found
I'll give you the run around
The second you see inside of me I know you'll back out
I grew up with a voice in my head
And honestly without that voice I'd probably be dead
Please don't wait for the prodigal son
He almost came back, but he was having too much fun
He's dead and gone and we knew it along
Each time I give in the temptation is too strong

And now i'm back here again
Been wearing masks so long that now I don't know where to fit in
Every night I lose it
All of the choices that I've made tighten the noose till it fits

Hide behind so many masks
Try so hard it never lasts
The darkness inside of me
Just wants to set itself free

I know I've just lost my way,
but I never meant to leave such a broken path of pain
Give me a chance please I'll explain
Different perspectives through different eyes
We're not the same
I'm out of touch with everything that I should probably feel inside

I am the worst person I know
I never had a heart and I just sold my soul
All my friends are dead, my girlfriend left,
and I've got way to many voices inside my head
They're screaming:
"I am the worst person I know"
You want a heart to heart?
I'll let you know
I am the worst person I know
Track Name: Lost In Limbo
I finally see this is bigger than you and me

I fell asleep I was comatose
Fought through the nightmare,
finally woke up 18 months ago
Stood up and went for what I wanted the most
Now I am hated, I'm despised
Struggle to see the path through bloodshot eyes

I guess I shouldn't be surprised
Everyone I knew before acts like I've lost my life
They say:
"Good things come to those who wait,
greatness occurs when you can fight through the hate"
I'm talking like I got something to prove,
but chasing my dreams is all I'm trying to do

I finally see the light
All I need now is a little more time
You got what you wanted and someday I'll get mine
I know I'll never try to fill the void that you left behind in me

I played it over again
Trying to silence the ghosts that you left in my head
I never want to forget
I never want to pretend
That this didn't destroy me
You are the one that fills my heart and head

I play a long hand and I hold my cards close
Why wouldn't I when you were everything I wanted the most
I'll never give up
I'll never let you go
This isn't bigger than us
This is my last hope
This is my last hope

I finally see the light
All I need now is a little more time
You got what you wanted and someday I'll get mine
I know I'll never try to fill the void that you left behind in me

So when the moment comes
That I am asked my dying wish
I will close my eyes and take myself back
And I will say let me see her again

'll surrender the moment you forgive me for my past
But we know that would never last
I refuse to live in the past

There's no way you can hurt me I've already lost what I had to lose
What I had to lose
Yeah,
lost what I had to lose
When I lost you

Realized that I was truly dead inside
So I started to fight
Started to see the light
Glared at the sun for the very first time
Now I know what's inside
know how I want to live this life

I finally see the light
All I need now is a little more time
You got what you wanted and someday I'll get mine
I know I'll never try to fill the void that you left behind in me
