Track Name: Scar Picker
I don’t want the placebo
But if your game I’ll play
Tell me what lighting to catch so
I look good when I’ll be dead
Oh yeah I’m blood and bone and
I can play my role
It doesn’t matter I know, we’ll do it anyway.
I cannot see my shadow
If you were to blow my candle out
Give me my pain, then give me pain killers.
Give me my pain.
I don’t want that straight and narrow path you pave
Fuck that I’m Looking for something
to sends me straight to hell
You call it losing control, baby I’m feeling alive
It doesn’t matter I know, we do it anyway.
I cannot see my shadow
If you were to blow my candle out
Give me my pain, then give me pain killers.
Give me my pain.
I can’t help but eat when I’m bored
I got fat got lazy, my back is sore
I guess I’ll fit right in
Conventional wisdom says that it’s so much fun
You can’t guarantee me anything
with that sense urgency
So I soak up as much as I can
I know it doesn’t last forever
I cannot see my shadow
If you were to blow my candle out
Give me my pain, then give me pain killers. Give me my pain.
Track Name: Bubble Gum Balloon
Maybe if the stars aligned and I had the right signs
I’d know what to do, where to go, who to be.
It doesn’t work out that way,
I can’t go but I can’t stay
Let’s celebrate
I’ll waste my time today
(I fake it till I make it up)
Far from flawless I know
I told you I’m awful
I told you I’m stained
But I like it this way
I’m afloat in a hole
I don’t have a soul
I don’t have a home
But I like it this way
You got a lot to say, exaggerate you authority but,
I know you’re so much better than me in every single way
I joined the losing team. It’s much more interesting
But I think
I’ll waste my time today
(I fake it till I make it up)
Far from flawless I know
I told you I’m awful
I told you I’m stained
But I like it this way
I’m afloat in a hole
I don’t have a soul
I don’t have a home
But I like it this way
Maybe if the stars aligned and I had the right signs
I’d know what to do, where to go, who to be.
It doesn’t work out that way,
I can’t go but I can’t stay
Let’s celebrate
I’ll waste my time today
Far from flawless I know
I told you I’m awful
I told you I’m stained
But I like it this way
I’m afloat in a hole
I don’t have a soul
I don’t have a home
But I like it this way
Track Name: Over Thinking
They want me to raise my glass
But I want to drink fast
You see, the thing about me is I’m competitive just like my best friend
We want to win
Sometimes it don’t feel right to be alive
I can take it
I can fake it
What choice do I have?
I feel sick and crazy
And I am but it’s alright
This is how I sleep at night
I cannot dress it up anymore
But they want me to try
But it’s not for me, it’s not for me, no it’s not for me
You know that anything you want you’ve got it
Don’t forget that you never have to ask me twice for anything
It kills me, keeps repeating
I’m over thinking myself crazy
Sometimes it don’t feel right to be alive
I can take it
I can fake it
What choice do I have?
I feel sick and crazy
And I am but it’s alright
This is how I sleep at night
You know that anything you want you’ve got it
Don’t forget that you never have to ask me twice for anything
It kills me, keeps repeating
I’m over thinking myself crazy
The awkward pause, in my eyes
I was never sure, no
If you heard me right
You know that anything you want you’ve got it
Don’t forget that you never have to ask me twice for anything
It kills me, keeps repeating
I’m over thinking myself crazy
Track Name: Saving The Day
I think it’s safe to say that it could be either one of us
But these scars have torn
Lucky you there is no light in your eyes
I think I’m better off dead
In my head
I had so much love for everyone
I use to have fun
We could be lovers, we could be reckless
We could just walk away to see what happens
Oh but I know, It’s not fate
No need to hurt me I know
We could just walk away. Let’s just walk away.
I like you face and the way you move so slow
You were saving the day
Lucky you there is no light in your eyes
I think I’m better off dead
In my head
I had so much love for everyone
I use to have fun
We could be lovers, we could be reckless
We could just walk away to see what happens
Oh but I know, It’s not fate
No need to hurt me I know
We could just walk away. Let’s just walk away.
Track Name: Eventually You'll Blink
It never makes any sense
I make my own
Even if everything goes wrong I’m going to stick to my guns
We all want something
I want it all
And if you got it let me know
Because in my dreams I’ve already gotten everything I’ve ever wanted
You can keep on waiting if you want
I can fly
You can keep on waiting if you want
Give me my change please
I’m in a hurry to leave
Because in my dreams I’ve already gotten everything I’ve ever wanted
You can keep on waiting if you want
I can fly
You can keep on waiting if you want
Don’t try and convert me
I couldn’t be any more pleased
I look at the TV
Don’t care what you say
It never asked me to change I do it anyway
Just ask all my best friends
They’ll set you straight
So don’t pretend were worthless, we do it on purpose
Maybe in my revenge I, I will break your heart,
Cause me and my best friends all
Have a good head start
Because in my dreams I’ve already gotten everything I’ve ever wanted
You can keep on waiting if you want
I can fly
You can keep on waiting if you want
Track Name: Let's Play Football!
Such a profitable storm, manufactured enemy
Thank god I’m back here at home where instability is king
Portraits of war
And it’s too late to change
We are the whores
And it keeps us awake
You all know who we are, you know just what this is
So do not take it personally, this is just business
Ruining summer fun
Turn on the eyes of light
Just wait we’ll be there in the morning
We are the wheels that spin
Any minute now we will all be winning
If you just want a ride and don’t mind the lies, then I think that you’ll find you in the right place
You all know who we are, you know just what this is
So do not take it personally, this is just business
Ruining summer fun
You don’t want to know what we did last night, pictures perfect
They said the emperor was delusional upon the steps for all to see
Let his reign begin, this opportunity open ‘til midnight every Sunday
One good trick to play on you and me
Long before yester day, or so it seems
My last blank stare will soon be gone
So put a smile on the old emperor
You all know who we are, you know just what this is
So do not take it personally, this is just business
Turn on the eyes of light
Just wait we’ll be there in the morning
We are the wheels that spin
Any minute now we will all be winning
Track Name: Celebrities
The true saint is the most famous
But we already got to know, got to know you
We want your contracts to never expire
We all, we want to see you naked it takes the pressure off of us
You sold yourself to me you sold yourself to almost everybody
Suspend your demise, protect your surprise, we won’t stop at anything
We got to know, got to know you
Tonight we set this off
Tonight we stop at nothing at all
You fill a void
Sometimes I feel like your right here
Tonight we set this off
Tonight we stop at nothing at all
My job is to take the pictures that make you hot
I got my territories taste
We just want another god that we can crucify
The true saint is the most famous
But we already got to know, got to know you
We want your contracts to never expire
We all, we want to see you naked it takes the pressure off of us
You sold yourself to me you sold yourself to almost everybody
Suspend your demise, protect your surprise, we won’t stop at anything
We got to know, got to know you
Track Name: Keepsakes Of Addiction
(I should) Be somewhere
But I don’t know just where to go
Struggle to digest so turn off the lights
By now were running away
I guess that this is how were rocking ourselves to sleep tonight
My father raised me, my fathers crazy
I can’t let it go
Belligerence don’t make a whole lot of sense to children but hey
With all these things to be considered I think I should (go)
If your life’s pathetic what’s that mean for mine?
I’m bound to inherit my father’s demise
No time to regret it because I’ve got his eyes
Struggle to digest so turn off the lights
By now were running away
I guess that this is how were rocking ourselves to sleep tonight
My father raised me, my Fathers crazy
I can’t let it go
Belligerence don’t make a whole lot of sense to children but hey
With all these things to be considered I think I should (go)
