Track Name: A Night Alone
There's lipstick on your teeth.
Your smile dropped down to your feet.
My lips are cracked and bleedin'.
This is the second time I caught you starin' at the ceilin'.

Pressing into my spine,
These cold hands of mine.
There's blisters on my fingers.

I call, but you're not home.
Another night alone,
All by myself.
Track Name: You Were Right
Lately I've been feeling like
As though I'm not really alive,
but rather dead inside.

I've been my feet.
Twice now I've come to be
Somethin' I don't wanna see.

Each new failure cuts deeper than the first.
I feel inadequate.
Incompetent.

Find it hard to see my own future,
Seems like everything is getting worse.

It's too cold outside,
And I can see my breath.
Slippin' from my mind.
Fantasizing about my own death.

Taste the salt on my lips.
Hear the sound of regret
after the words I said,
I never meant.

Empty promises
Laid down by you beside me.
Everything I shouldn't be,
I couldn't be.

It's too cold outside,
And I can see my breath.
Slippin' from my mind.
Fantasizing about my own death.
Track Name: I Just Want You to be Happy, That's All
Lay in bed.
Sick of worried thoughts in my head.
Ripped jeans to threads.

I try to listen but I'm strung out on the pain in my head,
you're burning CD's on your laptop in my bed.
I see the smile piercing through your lips that I want to kiss.

Oooooh, ooooooooh,

I try to listen but I'm strung out on the pain in my head,
I'm burning CD's on my laptop in my bed.
I see the smile piercing through your lips that I want to kiss.

I try to tell myself I'm good enough but not really sure,
you say I am and you kiss the bruises from my face,
Inside my head your voice is ringing through my dreams,
I follow it home again

I swear I'll listen to the rhythm beating out of your chest,
and eat the sadness that is pourin' put of your lips.
You take my glasses of and stare into my eyes,
I try to through my blurry vision

Oooooh, Oooooooh,

I try to listen but I'm strung out on the pain in my head,
I'm burning CD's on my laptop in my bed.
I see the smile piercing through your lips that I want to kiss.

ooooooh, ooooh, ooooooh, oooooh.
Track Name: Reborn
Push it out with your tongue.
Blood is runnin' black out of my nose.
Wanna speak, but my brain goes numb.
I can feel your fingers pressing into my skull.

I wish I could say for sure
That I don't even dream about death anymore,
Or you leaving me.

And in my dreams I'm laughing
While my life is shattering like mirrors.
And in the reflection I see hundreds of faces,
But I don't recognize them.

And although I'm torn,
I feel as though I've been reborn.
A new life, a new life, a new life, a new life.
Track Name: Body Beats
My microphone is tested,
Soul invested,
Smoke ingested.
Watch it leave my chest and,
Body beats thirsty
No water. No nerve in
Me. I'm thirsted.
The moon is blood red.
The beast is nested.
Bent up the cage that I'm pressed in.
Ripped out the page I'm checked in.

Body beast thirsty
No nerve in- Body beats thirsted.
Track Name: I am a Raincloud, but You Are the Sky
Tryin' to sleep only makes me more restless,
Might as well sit up and put on my glasses.
My eyes are tired, but in my brain there's static,
Pourin' through old photos in my attic

I keep hearin' your voice in my head,
repeating my name, I know I miss it.

This is murder, This is murder,

I remember you sitting on my table,
How you read my goosebumps like braille.
We spent our time staring at the ceiling,
We laid so still our hearts stopped beating.

The warmth of your breath beat against my neck,
You planted seeds of words you've said.
I can feel every inch of your fingers traced against my neck
I can still feel your cold hands (on my face)

I can hear every word you say
Even to this day.
How I wish you were here to comfort me.
Track Name: I'm Not Alright
I feel depressed.
Every bone in my body is aching.
I'm over it.
Every muscle I have is shaking.

You tell me I'm alright,
But who are you to tell me what I am?
Even though I look fine on the outside,
I feel dead on the inside.

Images are coming to me,
Like bodies swinging from a tree,
Like a pair of eyes
Watching me.

I'm not alright.
The sadness is haunting me.
Although I try to find peace,
It's tearing at my sore mind.
Track Name: Short Sad Song
Tired of waking up with a Hangover.
How many days did I go without drinking water?
Time to get up and get dressed.
Too lazy to make my bed.

too much time goes by sleeping in all day.
I want to move forward, but some things never change.
No longer looking forward to the weekends.
Never seeing any of my best friends.

Want nothing more than to be home alone.
I feel depression seeping through my bones.
Empty in my chest, marked by worthlessness.
I want to call out, but I feel repressed.
