Track Name: Nest
summer stories drowning in the rain
start to worry as you're losing friends
we can make up a new life every day
got a voice but you ain't got much to say
afraid of the changes in my bones can someone please take me home

you lost it all the day you left
bitter nostalgia in your chest
getting lonely thinking about the better days
rapidly fell out of the nest
look for a new one to infest
getting lonely thinking about the better days
regarding time as a curse
close your eyes pray it doesn't hurt

failing pride and you're falling out of touch
wondering how one life weighs so much
reminiscing brought you to your knees
how can we claim advanced empathy

denial crawls into your head
disease is spread out in your bed
afraid of the changes in my bones

you lost it all the day you left
bitter nostalgia in your chest
getting lonely thinking about the better days
rapidly fell out of the nest
look for a new one to infest
getting lonely thinking about the better days
regarding time as a curse
close your eyes pray it doesn't hurt
Track Name: Wet
lessons learned too slow at the innocence of home
learning how to breathe from dead heroes
i guess i'm doing fine i miss you from time to time
yea you know that that's a lie

i cannot help but dream about someone else
to experience a different type of hell
i wish that i was better than that but i'm not
your body caused my faithfulness to rot
even one night would be worth all the shame
give me a sign and i swear i'll play

poisoned by my lust the machine will break with this rust
clean up wipe it off one taste will not be enough
i'm dying so hungry for someone to engulf me
broke off inside her
the poison lost all flavor

i cannot help but dream about someone else
to experience a different type of hell
i wish that i was better than that but i'm not
your body caused my faithfulness to rot
Track Name: 24 Hour Party Girl
make me feel like a woman tonight
feed my soul make me healthy make me right
i can't sleep without you in my head
the millionth time that i replay what you said
tried to feel like the alpha dog
want to be a new wave god
where's my home cause i'm lonely and i'm tired
so turned on by a million little eyes

i wish life was as easy as the movies
the good guy carries a pistol and protects you when you cry
the quickdraw cowboy wasn't quick enough for me
they broke my heart

she's all the rage cause she goes all the way
how am i supposed to compete with that
i'll make damn sure you remember my name
even if you go home with that rat
my daddy lied it feels good to be dumb
and wallow in the shit of my mistakes

so make me feel like i used to before
when i was a child and life was knocking at my door
cause i was never old enough to see that it's all bullshit
Track Name: Botch
would you speak up if there was something wrong with me
if i caught a new disease and you were the only one who knew
i bet you'd watch me bleed out and cry as you act surprised
yea i look at those pictures on a broken day
everybody is obnoxious in a different way

i only want it all
starving for your scent i know that you want me to beg
praying for an end or residency in your head
i only want it all
and i swear that i'll give it back as soon as the stories done

salivating for what nostalgia was before
i turned into a different type of guy
a world to explore is the reason that i'm bored
cause i'll only ever be right where i am
surrounded by the news that it's worth all of this abuse
trying to stay calm under the knife
i wish that you could see what your pity does to me
i bathe in the glory of being a broken toy

starving for your scent i know that you want me to beg
praying for an end or residency in your head
i only want it all
and i swear that i'll give it back as soon as the stories done
Track Name: Dead Dogs
saving grace backed out and your daddy moved down south
looking for a cure or a family more pure
and i cannot help but fear
the destruction left behind from all those happy years
those dead dogs don't bark and the pictures do not talk now that the house is dark
help me stay awake keep my head above the waves
so i can live to see the awful thing i'm bound to be
i hate how much i smiled and expected only good to come out of the wild
those dead dogs don't bark and the pictures do not talk now that the house is dark

teach me how to breathe can't you see i'm struggling
explain this life to me cause i've only watched tv
hold me closer now you can tell i'm going down
i can feel her there i can feel her in the air
Track Name: Stay
stay for me i'm tired of singing to myself
and your applause is better for my health
than all those days i've spent inside a dream
trying to be you

screaming like a child as i start to lose the world i knew
what am i talking about
wish i would shut my mouth and keep my cool
but i'm too far along and home is so far gone
and so are you
all your problems seemed to melt into a smile
keep pretending at least for a little while
i can't seem to find the will to try and care
hell is in your body i've heard it's rude to stare

i feel my morals are slipping away from me
remember your promise that all will be fine
well you must have misspoke or just lost your mind
my superstitions are starting to breathe
as i sit here talking while you try to leave

but i want you to stop trying to pretend
the death of a culture is not worth a new fad
debaser disgracer they're wearing your smile
advice like toothache and dying in style
Track Name: Hollow
thank god for this perfect day
so grateful to be awake
i know things are getting easier
but i cannot help but keep my hate
give me a reason to be afraid
and i will provide
for you i would give addiction up
but you never thought to ask
well i would never compromise my promising career in poetry
give me a reason to be afraid
and i will provide
i gave up on waking up
and i'm feeling hollow inside
Track Name: Feed
state your problems here
swollen veins unhealthy fear
and hatred held against your peers
chips away year after year
picturesque inside a mirror
forge a smile fake those tears
waiting for something to feel
and wonder why the dead skin won't heal

bleed trying to believe that there's something more to see
wipe the dirt off of your clean as you start to feed
the blank slate was soon defiled
plead for a place to sleep
to lay your seed
fold into those arms and find
you wasted all your peace of mind

try to decide which memories to hide
the ones where we die
so happy inside
bleed trying to believe that there's something more to see
wipe the dirt off of your clean as you start to feed
Track Name: Brother
stuck inside my head again i have gotten older
corrupt me like a schoolgirl these kids are so much colder
all i'll ever wanna do is be a little bolder
she says i think i got it all
oh i thought i told her

waiting for my head to put me in my place
looking for a good reason to hate

i could run the world i could be your president
i could be the little boy locked inside the basement
everything i want and more is right next to defacement
i'll leave well enough alone i can be complacent
hit me with the logical reasoning for suicide
i'll be in your bedroom waiting for your friends to die
everything i've ever learned has led me to return inside
i think i've got it all
it's in my head

waiting for my head to put me in my place
looking for a good reason to hate

summer days spent sucking bones dry
flaying fur from flesh for your perverted disguise
winter nights came shrieking silently
and from his fist came love so violently
Track Name: Amen Dead Friend
i got this feeling that i won't be around
to reminisce about the ups and downs
all alone surrounded by hated friends and loving lies
those childhood nightmares always seem to return
oh how they burn
the faded stories don't tell the same
there's something lost you're trying to reclaim

amen dead friend
couldn't find the words to tame those fears
when you're starting at the end
it's hard to believe
wishful thinking persevered and the let down was violent
glory screaming in your ear
couldn't find it

those ancient feelings don't heal much at all
starting to feel small
i've been before in the dark
the end can wait until you start
