Track Name: Crossroads
It seems we’ve come to a crossroads,
Walking on the tips of our toes down darkened hallways,
Doorways outlined by the morning light.
Outlook hopeful, optimistic. Ten steps then I’ll get some rest.
Though wicked I require lots of sleeps.
Crossroads

Come on dear, why are you frowning?
I’ve been here this whole time drowning,
You’ve been off having a good time.
And on a similar note, I hope that you choke,
On all the bullshit that you’ve tried to feed a pathetic sap like me.

It seems we have no conviction, lying through the whites of our teeth,
Underlying, always lying, even if its not about a thing.
One more word could set this off, one more objection and we’re done.
One more word out of your mouth and I swear to god.

I remember sunny days that never seemed to end, and I loved it.
We threw caution to the wind, and let the sunshine kiss our skin.
And in the back of my mind, I knew it wouldn’t last, but I tried.
Those are memories, nothing more, just single frames in time
Track Name: Accept the Loss
Accept the loss

The time it takes for you to make your move, your loss
I will flip the bill, and fuck the cost
It’s weird, you say, for me to take whats offered, un-take?
I won’t ask for help accept the loss.

Can’t fall asleep without the t.v. on my friend?
I will tell you bedtime stories, where everything works out in the end.
I will rub your back, I will wash your feet!
I will not smile at you for fear you’ll see the grime between my teeth.

Unkempt, un-made, not polished, not glazed. Unloved? So what!
I will flip the bill and fuck the cost.
Lastly, un-true, so what? Supposed to! Won’t make, can’t stay?
I won’t ask for help accept the loss.
Track Name: Guilty as I Am
Guilty As I am

I faintly remember white satin sheets.
Photos of your friends adorned your ceiling.
I know I spent hours starring at your face,
But I can’t remember, can’t remember your name.

I remember a long and interesting talk.
You said you needed fresh air, so we went for a walk.
I know I spent hours standing by your side,
But I can’t remember the color of your eyes.

We talked about leaving,
Drop the fucking world and do as we please.
We talked about a future,
That we’d never have, not one regret guilty as I am.
Yesterday was bound to leave.

I don’t remember falling asleep,
But I do remember an early morning,
You said I had to go and couldn’t stay,
But I can’t remember a feature on your face.

I remember a long and awkward hug,
I remember counting the fibers, on the patterns on your rug.
I’m not sure but I think you had auburn hair,
Oh well, the devils in the details,
And I really don’t care.

Of course I wonder if you think about me, but I don’t lose sleep.
Still, I long for an answer I’ll never receive.
I hope you think about me, but don’t lose sleep, don’t forget me.
As time goes so will your memory, you won’t lose me.
Track Name: Dressed Up
Dressed Up

Dressed up working for shots at the bar, cloves, black fingernails.
Modern woman, so proud, so strong! Lose your top if all else fails.
Sight’s set on your prey, rings on their fingers, feeling that seven year itch.
Oh yeah, you’re so hot, top of your game, but time is a fickle bitch.

At home alone now starring yourself into your own green eyes.
Repeating everyone sees beauty in these, so why, why can’t I?

I wish you were a more stable girl, but you’ll never wear that dress.
I wish that things could be different, but that’s just a fools request.
And he’s not listening too busy admiring your chest, and
I listened to every word and your just a self-hating mess.

Burning bridges comes naturally, just like hiding yourself from friends.
Calling bullshit on all others, but the same bullshit just keeps happening.
And we share this problem its tough moving on and letting go,
You’ve got to apologize, make amends, and work hard looking strait to tomorrow.
Track Name: Marco Polo
Marco Polo

In her disillusioned eyes
I see no recollection of a time
When she was happy with him
Why argue about the same old things
Until there’s nowhere left in your lungs
It’s not worth this, Nothing’s worth these
Lies and contradictions
Are staring from the mirrors reflection

Hey what do you say
I was wondering
How time passes by so fast
Hey what do you say
I was wondering
I don’t think opposites attract

Well I was waiting but it kept raining
That time will drive you crazy
And in the back room you can find me
Burning up my memories

And as she sits and throws the bottle
harder back than a carpool throttle
I don’t see a glimmer of hope
And as I move the mirror back
Track Name: That Fat Mother Fucker
That Fat Motherfucker

I'll drink until my stomach bleeds
and I'll smoke until I can't sing
but you know its the funniest thing
cause I have brothers and sisters that would die for me

and I'm not just anybody
I'm drunk but I see what you're doing to me
and yeah I drank too much whiskey
I'm drunk but I see what you doing to me

and I'll play until my fingers bleed
but there's just one thing that will always haunt me
I could have the strength of ten thousand men
and I'd still do the same stupid shit again

She'll never know, she'll leave it at that
and that fat motherfucker had a heart attack
they say he loved her but leave it at that
and that fat motherfucker more so loved crack

we're all lost we are all forsaken
we're all misguided and mistaken
and still we walk these streets praying
for anyone or any god to save us

we're all lame inbred and blind
we've all taken part in the decline
and this won't be the first or the last time
we shoot across the line
the beauty of American life is we sleep through
until we die, and we all do so have a good time
and shoot across the line
Track Name: The Academy
Academy

It haunts my dreams, it gives me gasoline breath
Its dangerous to smoke cigarettes, been hopeless since the day I was born
So what’s today and what’s this place we stay, so far back in the race
We can’t catch up, and I don’t think we ever will now
And I won’t let the situation bring me down
Cause if its right then that’s all I can ask for
And its below me not my worry, gonna let it drown
Cause if its right then that’s all I could ask for, and no more
I think I know what our problem is, we move too slow and its dangerous
Not to take, steal chances, breathe life into me
Just let the sun shine on my face, wind at my back always Just let me taste such happiness
So I can prove to myself that its real
Got a problem, want a problem, want to take on the world
Want to be part of the academy
Want to be someone, but don’t know who to be
Want to be part of the academy, want to be someone not knowing who to be
Track Name: Attitude Adjuster
Attitude Adjuster

how can you only think with your dick?
because honestly it’s not that fucking big
and I'm not speaking from experience
but I’m not the one wearing my sisters pants
and honestly I admire your confidence
even though we're all laughing at your expense
and I think you could, be a cool guy
if you lose the act, and stop drinking

Now I see exactly what you wanted
and don't blame me, some people never learn
and make believe is only this and nothing
and don't blame me, cause I'm just being honest
cause I'm just being honest, at least someone is

and I heard you slept outside in the rain again
writing poetry just for the attention
and she’s giving it up, and your giving in again
and I don’t really think that she really gets it

Now I see exactly what you wanted
and don't blame me, some people never learn
and make believe is only this and nothing
and don't blame me, cause I'm just being honest
cause I'm just being honest, at least someone is
Track Name: I'm Just Not That Patient
I’m Just Not That Patient

Well if we both fail it’s because I’m already dead
It’s been the same for many years before
This situation has been completely out of hand
And I don’t expect you to understand

You’re sharpening your skills so well
I can’t believe no one can tell
I used to see the better things
But now it’s gotten bad
You see nothing that’s in front of you
Can’t figure just what to do
Your cluelessness has molded you
And it’s making me so mad

So now I’m taking it all back.
To a place you’ve never seen before
Because I can’t ignore the facts
And I won’t be coming back

And you won’t understand
The way I live my life or how I spend my time
Because I’m sticking to the plan
Sitting here with thoughts filled in my hand
I’ve never seen someone who can look so damn dumb
What were you saying again

You don’t know yourself as much as you know everyone else
So do you think that could be how you got left out
Well never mind, you take it from behind
Something that everyone else has figured out

So now I’m taking it all back.
To a place you’ve never seen before
Because I can’t ignore the facts
And I won’t be coming back

And you won’t understand
The way I live my life or how I spend my time
Because I’m sticking to the plan
Sitting here with thoughts filled in my hand
I’ve never seen someone who can look so damn dumb
What were you saying again
Track Name: The Moment You Left
The Moment You Left

They say I never speak
Well maybe I don't
But I have my reasons
And I change with the seasons
And I don't know what I want
But I wanted her
And she wanted me
But I'm insecure

Keep it all in
Try hard to keep it in
Keep it all in
Try hard

The moment you left
I couldn't not find
The X on my chest
That I left behind
And walking so soft
Not to be heard
My heart is a disease
Obscene and obscure

And I wished that I'd explained
Exactly how I felt
But I bottled it up
And drank what was left
And now that she's gone
Can I have her back?
And now that she's gone
I miss her so

Keep it all in
Try hard to keep it in
Keep it all in
Try hard

The moment you left
I could not find
The X on my chest
That I left behind
And walking so soft
Not to be heard
My heart is a disease
Obscene and obscure

The moment you left
I could not find
The X on my chest
That I left behind
And walking so soft
Not to be heard
Your heart is a disease
That cannot be cured
