Track Name: Boy
When I was a young boy I always listened,
unless you told me to do wrong,
these rules are meant for breaking they would tell me,
so we would never get along,

& If you ever feel like you're stuck in a spot,
just let me know and I wont stop,
until you are where you need to be,
or at least until you're with me,

& if you ever feel like you are slipping,
just remember you are loved,
& if you ever feel like theres something missing,
just remember life it does go on,

& when you, know that you,
have come far enough,
you can drop everything and leave this place,
but until then you are slaved,
to the brands that you crave,
so leave this place,

& if you ever feel like you are slipping,
just remember you are loved,
& if you ever feel like theres something missing,
just remember life it does go on,
Track Name: Lost for Good
It speaks for you,
the streets they do,
an aura of black and blue,
see yourself alone at last,
no lights or stink below it moves to fast,

Needle ridden beaches of California,
don't steer me near ya,
you may be the best for me,
but you are a pain.

Give into silence,
smells are of violets,
& the trees will help you roam,
when you're free you're finally home,

Needle ridden beaches of California,
don't steer me near ya,
you may be the best for me,
but you are a pain.
Track Name: Pines 2
Through the pines I see little red,
her eyes the color of mine,
I feel the pull from earth to moon,
as she weeps the tides abide,
seasons change leaving beautiful greens,
as everything turns to white,
death is upon us I believe she's honest,
but hell she's mine,

Do you not believe me when I say,
i'm here to stay (X2)
Track Name: Vomit
Stomach acid on the floor,
bite down & lose some more,
wooden walls with tiles above,
watch your head you better duck,

Rumbles shakes & mammals cry,
i'm in my cave and I want to die,
Rumbles shakes & mammals cry!
I'm in my cave and I want to die,

These walls won't keep them out,
these walls won't keep me sane,
you are so needy but who's to blame,
get out get out just let me reign,

A storm will brew once again,
color & noise draw them in,
but wait there's nothing here to see!
get out out let me be.
Track Name: Bad Relation
I never thought i'd be happy that this could happen,
you've crossed the line,
i'm out of sight skipping town,
red patterns fill the ground now,

Lucy is scared & she is shaking,
but at least I wont be fed up,
& when I get some bad weather,
don't care if your here to make me feel better,

I hope the worst for you,
never agreed on my decisions,
I hope you hit the ground face down and,
come up missin,

Such a rude thing to say don't you agree?
Well I had to get it off of my chest,
she put me in a spot I never planned to be but,
maybe ruined it for the best,

This love story is not the one you want to hear I know, (X3)

I'm sorry I ruined it for everyone.
