Track Name: Shelter
leave no regrets
just a bottomless pit in my stomach
which is often left undiscussed

it's nights like these
where i don't feel how i should be feeling
and i don't feel how i should be feeling

and i'm feeling sick
so please say goodnight
for the last time
'cause i'm sick of living life
where no one's appreciated
i just wanna be appreciated
Track Name: Taking the Scenic Route
i can't seem to find
any tranquil places in my mind
and everything i do is just enough to pass the time

break down your walls
let them crumble to your feet
we'll build them up again
as long as we sustain this heat
i know you're right, that's not the point of this
i just don't have the time
to keep up with your shit anymore

savor the beauty and most memorable nights
once we're dead we'll become legacies
long after our lives.
for the best of things
i'll try not to bring myself around when you are there
it could be easy but you just don't please
why would i wait when you don't care?
it's such a shame that i still sit here for more
much wasted time, i spent poorly for sure

is it enough to say i'm trying
or are you still in contempt
of everything i say?
because your words mean more to me
than any misleading thing
they could've said in your place
please reprive the names
what is life without mistakes?
Track Name: Alone Again
alone again,
i keep coming short of the line
and everyone's gunning me down.
i'm settling for less than what it means to feel complete
and this is wearing me out

i've been waiting for everything and everyone
but i've learned in time for sure
that i've been wrong.
a stupid joke, embarrassment
something easier done than said
and i'm just here to line up all these broken pieces

i'm a liar, tell me the truth
everyone will hold this on you

an awful reminder of what this year meant
a spoiled bad liar with no good intent
look in the mirror, admire yourself
so you can be lied to like everyone else
Track Name: Jaded
outside,
you're the very first thing that comes to mind
when i feel like i'm losing hope
at the bottom of a bottle and i'm trying to cope
so how will you figure it out
i've got a million different questions
i want answers now
but you're lying and letting me drown
at the bottom of this bottle that i'll empty out.
(and it's such a burden, I feel like i'm...)

i'm sick of wasting my time on you
you keep pulling me under the water
and all this time i thought i knew
i guess i don't even know you anymore

i tried my best to leave
but you were too busy holding on to everything
why is everyone so jaded?
i've been exhausted with the wealth of greedy people
tonight we're lost but in the morning we'll be equals
Track Name: Endurance
always in my thoughts
always in my dreams
you're wrapped around me like a sleeve
and i can't control the feeling

stop and take a look around
i'm dying for an excuse to make you feel better
and i hope you're not trying to impress anyone
keep your thoughts plotted and you're mind open clear
you're the only thing i want and it makes me feel better
knowing that i'm not the only one who feels alone

and you are the oxygen that i used to breathe
before my lungs had collapsed on me
although i tried i completely failed
take one last breath and fully exhale

after all,
i still have the endurance for pain
even though it hurts within me

gotta come to grips with what has fallen in between the cracks
and i'm still jealous that you had her lying on her back.
i said i'd never leave
but then you walked away
and i'm dying to breathe
but this weight's crushing me
