Track Name: Kill Me Quick
You've got a heart with a lock only I can pick
A combination of love that makes every man sick
Come lay down and kill me quick
Yeah, come lay down and kill me quick

I always thought there'd be more to consider
Like which one's the prom queen
And who was the sinner
But there's a flood in my head
With no plug for the drain
A hole in my throat where all these secrets escape

You're a monster
Stuck in a bombshell's body
Good luck
Getting this one out of me

It's taken so long to finally loosen up my tongue
In the end it just seems pointless to which side really won
I'll rip off your eyelids
So you can never dream
Stuck in reality
Ripping apart at the seams

But you're a monster
Stuck in a bombshell's body
Good luck
Getting this one out of me

Kill me quick
Come lay down and "Kill me quick"
Track Name: 20,000 Leagues Over My Head
You're the cure for cancer
But the start of something worse
You're the cause for alarm
But you never weigh your worth

Liar, Destroyer
The reef which I've been wrecked upon
Don't tell me you miss this
Break the chain, you break the bond
If loose lips sink ships
Ours went down long ago
It feels like I'm drowning
Slowly spinning out of control

Just like lightning, bright and violent
You struck my heart and branded your name on it
Just like his tone will ensnare you
I will covet and command you
To drop your anchor where you stand
Even with no sight of land

Liar, Destroyer
The reef which I've been wrecked upon
Don't tell me you miss this
Break the chain, you break the bond
If loose lips sink ships
Ours went down long ago
It feels like I'm drowning
Slowly spinning out of control
Track Name: Dark Passenger
Addicted, conflicted
Or maybe just a joke
Spending most nights
Going around in circles
Wondering where this time will go

Playing God the position is vacant
Remedies reserved for sages
In the form of words
To ease the hurt
But keep you in your cages

Sunlight bleeds
Across the tops of trees
With that, night dies once more
This confession is an unjust cause
So lets settle up the score
I'm lighting a smoke
To set the scene
Our worlds collide
Like the hips of teens
Once again I've let myself slip back into this relapse

An empty bottle and a brain with bad thoughts
Will never get you any farther from a life that you find so flawed

Nothing ever meets my expectations
So until then I will fake elation
Catastrophe
You and Me
Together we're God's disasterpiece
Track Name: Ohio's Best Grave Diggers
Losing hope with each word you spoke
Isn't just the best observation
It describes our relationship
Evidence for your damnation
So set your eyes on stun
And set your heart on
3…2..1
And decimate on two
Because you've never been on cue

Like honeymoon role play
Like she barely took your name
Like sleeping in caskets on sick days
She hangs from the bell rope
A thorn stuck in your side
She never did call back
She couldn't really write

Watch the flies dart around the web
Like drunkards around the bathroom
Keeping note of my closest friends
When I'm the path less traveled
Keep my fingers crossed
That I'll leave with tongue lash scars
And not a tattooed bruise
There's no escaping this lose-lose

Wake up
For panic attacks
Wake up
For panic attacks
Wake up
For panic attacks
Wake up….
Wake up

Like honeymoon role play
Like she barely took your name
Like sleeping in caskets on sick days
She hangs from the bell rope
A thorn stuck in your side
She never did call back
She couldn't really write

I said, "I'd dig my grave for you"
I said, "I'd dig my grave for you"

Like honeymoon role play
Like she barely took your name
Like sleeping in caskets on sick days
She hangs from the bell rope
A thorn stuck in your side
She never did call back
She couldn't really write
Track Name: Blank Pages
Blank pages taunt me
Penned ones remind me
There's still so much out there to live for
This ink will fade
Turn yellow with age
And all these words will be nothing more than thoughts

Circles we spin
Bridges we burn
Just to forget what we've left behind
All of these late nights
Paired with the long drives
One day we'll look back and realize what we've lost

I've covered lost ground
The walls are closing in
We'll see who laughs
When I'm the last one standing
Track Name: Silhouette
There's no one to blame for this mess I've made
I'm losing myself and I'm ashamed
Passing days mean sleepless nights
And I miss what I call home

I'm kicking but you can't see me flail
Like a dog without its tail
I've got nothing to strive for
I need something to die for
Mistakes never felt so holy
As when I made wrong turns with you
These passing lights
Outline your silhouette
And I'm right back on cue

Send out an S.O.S.
And hope it gets to you
I'll wash up on the shore
And wither as you bloom

So bury me face down
I cant bare to see the brightness in your eyes

So bury me face down
I can't bear to see the brightness in your eyes

(So bury me face down)

I never thought I'd see myself
As one to pull the trigger
And there's no second chances
After shots are fired
