Track Name: Dear Friend,
These words I write are nothing but a weapon; a lie
I wrote just to pass the time
& now it seems you've caught every single bullet
One shot for every useless line

Its times like these I can barely keep on my feet
Cause nothings the way that it seems
These growing pains will slowly bring us back down
One day we'll find out what is left for us
Track Name: Breaking Point
Feeling let down; misunderstood, despite my good intentions
Chasing sanity down dead end streets,
This voice tells me
To wash away this sense of trust and put you back in your place
Swallow pride to spit back in your face

I'm so sick of folding maps
Just trying to get closer
Learned the Worlds not flat
As I've gotten older

Relinquish bitter memories
& keep them buried six feet down
That way You'll never slip through my skin again
Open wide to bite the bullet
Brace myself this time around
Keep my feet on the ground
& my head held up high

I'm so sick of folding maps
Just trying to get closer
Learned the Worlds not flat
As I've gotten older

I've held this is for far too long

I've hit my breaking point this time
& I'm getting by with no thanks to you
I've been out done and put down
but thats got me where I am now
Track Name: Snapbacks Are For Squares
What's left to say
When its all been said
& who's left to talk
When friendship is dead
I've watered down your courage
With a shot of humbleness
So take the knife out of my back
& stab me in the chest

I won't apologize
for what I've done
There's no use fighting for
What can't be won

This empty room has left us drained
As silence echoes through my veins
I'm losing sight & losing hope
From every word that you spoke
You've picked the best of times
To get the worst in me
Because you're more trouble than you're worth

Twenty years of brotherhood
Thrown all away
Leave me what is left
From this mistake
I've done my time and proven
That you're not what we expect
So tell me who's choked up
From your hands around my neck

I won't apologize
for what I've done
There's no use fighting for
What can't be won

This empty room has left us drained
As silence echoes through my veins
I'm losing sight & losing hope
From every word that you spoke
You've picked the best of times
To get the worst in me
Because you're more trouble than you're worth

We wont apologize
For what's been done
There's no use in fighting
For what can't be won

There's no use fighting for this
Track Name: Modern Day Saint
Been spending long nights
Perfecting a formula
To this ruined lifestyle
Consume two parts teen angst
& gouge out this chip on my shoulder

Well its not easy letting go
When no ones even hanging on
Yeah its not easy letting go
When no ones even hanging on

I'm only lying to myself
Because I'm the only one who's foolish enough to believe it
& I don't know where I'm going or what's going on
Just tell me where I should be now

Well they say history repeats
But I'm stuck in this defeat
So its safe to say
I've learned you can't be a memory
If you've done nothing to remember

Well its not easy letting go
When no ones even hanging on
Yeah its not easy letting go
When no ones even hanging on

I'm only lying to myself
Because I'm the only one who's foolish enough to believe it
& I don't know where I'm going or what's going on
Just tell me where I should be now

Well I've reached my breaking point this time
These growing pains have brought me back down
& I will never apologize
Just tell me where I should be now
