Track Name: Think Big
when you look at all you friends, do you find yourself alone
when you try to make amends do you try too hard
you left me waiting with the weight of the world
but I wont be standing here because you've gone too far

when you look at all your friends do you find yourself alone
when you try to make amends do you try too hard
I tried to find myself in the shadows of my room
these cold and empty corners have now become my tomb

when you look at all your friends do you find yourself alone
when you try to make amends do you try too hard
Track Name: Lost
I woke up in a panic because I saw you in my dream
you never said a word but you left me all the same
and I guess thats fine

I tried to write you off but nothing ever sticks
the image of you face is something alcohol cant fix
I know it may sound cruel but I cant stand you
Track Name: Swimming With Sharks (featuring Mike Forbes)
my life is a series of mistakes written in pen
it comes crashing down around me when I let you in again
make up your mind I cant do this anymore
stop asking me whose side im really on

Im doing what I think is right
breaking the routine of being backed up against the wall each night
these nightmares are the highlights of our lives

no one knows that I wont ever be okay
not like Ill ever really need your sympathy
dont mistake this for another useless plea
because I wont ever ask you to stay

Im doing what I think is right
breaking the routine of being backed up against the wall each night
these nightmares are the highlights of our lives

we're walking thin lines
over eggshells and hard times
nightmares and long nights
the highlights of our lives
Track Name: Untitled
now I cant even think
my lack of sleep has the best of me
and I cant put into words
what this is doing to me
and I think its time
that I come clean

I have found no peace at night
Im hanging by a shaded light
that I might actually be alright
and lose my mind when it goes rouge
I dont know where it goes but it takes me ahold
Im home all alone I just lose all control
growing ever sober with the things that I once told her
so I can start living again

Im sorry
Track Name: 1959
Im losing faith in the things that I cant see
its no ones fault, but I just cant believe
in anything except for you and me
and I cant live my life by the way you want me to be

Im committing honest suicide by a lit cigarette
repenting for wrongs that I havent made yet
and that will never change
living future blind and check by check
I havent got any fight left
in me to make a change

there may be a lot of things
that I just dont know
but theres one thing will always show
Im not a fucking one man army
Ive got all my friends right in line behind me


Im committing honest suicide by a lit cigarette
repenting for wrongs that I havent made yet
and that will never change
living future blind and check by check
I havent got any fight left
in me to make a change
