Track Name: fighting a losing war
will you write another sad sad song
while sitting up at night when you can't sleep
i know it's obnoxious and it's useless
to fight a war you're losing
between what could
and shouldn't be

this might be your only chance
to find out where your paths will lead
i know it's obnoxious and it's useless
to fight a war you're losing
if you're too careful you'll seem careless
and if you call you'll sound so desperate
but isn't that what you are
isn't that what we all are
Track Name: fault lines
is it you who calls the shots
of what you want
does it hurt when he sees you
like his eyes are made of fire
he's not allowed to be near you
so why are you the one who hides

i don't have to pretend
that these are your friends

how could you live on a fault line
when you're scared to be touched
if i'm so sure that i'm drowning
why's my mouth feel like a sponge
i know
Track Name: someone who will talk about anything
there are people who i trust
there are people who trust me
and i don't know why
they're choosing to confide
in someone who will talk about anything

and there are people who i miss
there are people who miss me
and i don't know why
they're investing all their time
into someone with my history

so now i'm numb
and it's because of everything

my eyes are tired
my body's tired
of waking up and still
being me
Track Name: lately i've been feeling tired of everyone i know
it's cold
and lately i've been feeling tired
of everyone i know

and i'm positive that's it obvious
that every time i'm out i want to go home
and every time i'm home i feel so alone
i can't expect to sit and wait around to die
for the rest of my life

because that isn't me
i'm feeling like i am stuck
in between
Track Name: if we could just pretend
where did you go, and what did you do, with all that time you were too scared to move? what is it like to be by yourself for three and half years. for roughly three and a half years.

if we could just pretend that i went to college, and that's why you haven't seen me. i wanted to go, but not for this long. i overdid it.

why did you say that i was one in a million? because i believed it. i thought i had something that you were too scared to lose. so if we could just pretend that i went to college, and traveled abroad, and did something different. anything but just sitting at home for three and a half years, writing song after song after song.

so what is it like to be by yourself and feel like you'll die around everyone else. i thought i was one in a million. well thanks for nothing.

thank you.
thank you.
