Track Name: Go Home
Go home, you're not welcome anymore

Get back away from my front porch step, I'm not the same guy I was the last time we kissed. People change, I just wish you had, your attitude was something I could never understand. You looked so humble in the right light. I'm not your puppet, I'll cut these strings, I can stand on my own two feet. I don't need anyone to lean.

I'm sick of compromising situations, I need a little room to breathe, a little space between you and me. In this battle I am losing on what once was common ground, I let myself down, I can't handle you around.

Please just walk away.

I know we had our history, their repeat is a fault by me . This chemistry is an antiquity, collecting dust inside my head. All the bridges we find will burn down, slowly with time all the while, I thought you helped me breath but you were biting the hand that fed me.

I'm sick of compromising situations, I need a little room to breathe, a little space between you and me. In this battle I am losing on what once was common ground, I let myself down, I can't handle you around.

Go home, you're not welcome here anymore. Go home, you turned these walls into something old. Go home, please run away from here. Go home, without me. (x2)

I'm sick of compromising situations, I need a little room to breathe, a little space between you and me. In this battle I am losing on what once was common ground, I let myself down, I can't handle you around.
Track Name: Cardiac Interest
You were the reason I got up in the morning, now you're the reason why I close my eyes. I hope that you know that we can't ever go back, to the way things were before I wasn't good enough.

Count me out, you drag me down. Wasted time, both yours and mine. I'm not gonna be another human statistic, lying to my face while his is covered in lipstick, get to the point before I stop listening.

Gotta get up and walk away, get myself out of this grave that I dug too deep, too small that I can barely breathe. Too small that I can, can barely breathe. Too small that I can, can barely..

Count me out, you drag me down. Wasted time, both yours and mine. I'm not gonna be another human statistic, lying to my face while his is covered in lipstick, get to the point before I stop listening.

When you left, you left behind, something and that was I. Plus you made us, and it hurt so much, to think that all we had was nothing more than lust.

And I've given up, and I've given up, and I've given up.

Count me out, you drag me down. Wasted time, both yours and mine. I'm not gonna be another human statistic, lying to my face while his is covered in lipstick, get to the point before I stop listening.
Track Name: New Year, Old Me
There's nothing wrong with needing some time on my own, there's nothing wrong with feeling so god damn alone. I was blinded but now I see, there's something wrong with me. There's something wrong with me.

I'm holding onto memories and broken regrets. I put up my walls and I pulled down your fence. And promised myself that I'll one day forget. Why does it always come down to this?

I'm sorry I fucked up, you don't need me. I don't deserve you I turned out to be something so useless, excuses don't mean anything. Anything.

It's a brand new year, but the same old me. Same old me.

I'm holding onto memories and broken regrets. I put up my walls and I pulled down your fence. And promised myself that I'll one day forget. Why does it always come down to this?

'Cause I've been living in this basement, living on the floor. And I can't seem to find a place that I can call home. Because home doesn't have an address anymore, I just don't know where I'm going to go.
Track Name: I Feel Like Steven Glansberg
I can't live up to your expectations, you say you cleaned yourself up when you threw me in the dirt. Dowsed in double standards you drown me. Break my back and bring me to my knees, things will never be the same since you got the best of me, the best of me.

But I hope that things will change eventually. I hope, I hope, I hope, eventually. Things are bound to get easier, this regressions not me. And honestly, honestly, I'm coming out as a better me.

It's my life, it's my call I don't need your crutches to stand tall. I brought home the battle but I'll win the war. Tell me something I don't know, your lack of common sense is wearing thin I hope that the winds change, I hope they change for the better.

But I know that things will change eventually. I know, I know, I know, eventually. Things are bound to get easier, this regressions not me. And honestly, honestly, I'm coming out as a better me.

You say you cleaned yourself up, dowsed in double standards you drown me. You say you cleaned yourself up, dowsed in double standards you drown me. You say you cleaned yourself up, dowsed in double standards you drown me. You say you cleaned yourself up.

Things are bound to get easier, this regressions not me. And honestly, honestly, I'm coming out as a better me. I'm coming out as a better me. I'm coming out as a better me.
Track Name: Chbosky
You're back again for the second time and I'm begging you just to put yourself in my shoes, and watch as your morale crumbles through. It's not fair, it's not fun to watch this burn but I needed another chance without you here, by my side, this is who I am.

Wasted youth with years to follow, another sad truth I had to swallow when I knew I never wanted to stay here. My words crashed down like anchors, when it came down to it, you weren't long after. You made your choice and now it's time to make mine.

To make mine.
