Track Name: This Coin Means Nothing Now
Wake up to live another day
Try not to let mind float astray
Away from complications
Stand firm and sternly stationed
Grab another bottle that I don't need
And care less about reality
Forget all those around me,
Forget this life I'm living
And I've tried to let go
And I've tried to move on
But I'm stuck in this rut that I've dug for myself
And I've tried to let go
And I've tried to move on
But I'm stuck in this rut that I've dug for myself
Track Name: Tired
I'm sitting on this brick wall
As I gaze across the lake that's filled up with less life than the life that's left in me
Surprised cuz I don't feel like I have any life left at all

What's the point and what's my purpose
Is this an everlasting hell
And if there's a method to this madness
Someone tell me now

Why does it seem so dark when there's not a single cloud up in the sky
The sun is bright but it's light eludes me
Why do I write these songs that make me feel like my head is gone
When did it come to this
I'm not as fucked up as I know some to be
But there's something about this town that's killing me

By the time you read this note I'll be long gone
With enough cash in this bag to get me by
I won't worry about the time or even what is on mind
It'll just be me and my strings on the road
By the time you read this note I'll be long gone
With enough cash in this bag to get me by
I won't worry about the time or even what is on mind
It'll just be me and my strings on my own

I like to think of escapes like this
When I am all alone
When I am all alone to think
What if there was a way to get away from here
I need to get away from here
I need to get away from here

Cuz I'm just a kid
And I'm so damn sick of always doing what I'm told
Cuz I'm just a kid
I'm just a kid
And I'm sick and tired of this
I'm tired
I'm not gonna live life by the books
Cuz my father when he shook my hand he said
If you live each day doing what you love son
You'll never work a day in your life

I'm tired
If there's a method to this madness someone tell me now
I'm tired
Track Name: Perspective
I woke up just like any other day but I seem to be missing something real. I've come a ways since the days when I was younger wishing... But even now I'm wishing for something real

I think I've been wishing for some perspective to come and rain down on me
To teach me what it's like to live

I watched my dad and grandad before me as they drank their way through bottles of family glass as they got impatient with themselves.
From "get off my case" to "it's not your place"
I learned that it's not so simple, to
beat an enemies brick wall that may just be your own.

And you'll still reap what you sow

Then try to make it out alive, without the benefit of having anyone else by your side. With your one boy on your right and your little girl on your left, life's throwing curves and you're still swingin'.

You always did the best you could for us.
But some would say that it's not enough.

But who the hell are they anyway?

I watched my dad and grandad before me as they drank their way through bottles of family glass as they got impatient with themselves.
From "get off my case" to "it's not your place"
I learned that it's not so simple, to
beat an enemies brick wall that may just be your own.
Track Name: Election Day
The streets rage in a blaze
The futures always hazy
We say we're gonna react
But in the end we don't, we're too damn lazy
We've got these Signs and slogans
That only lead to bitterness
In the end left torn apart
Stuck searching for everything that we want

All of these pointless conversations
Didn't Get you what you wanted so why do you feel exulted again?

How can we expect the world to change
if we're not even willing to change ourselves

We're all on the same side
What's the point in all of this
You keep running your mouth putting them down
Doing the same damn thing that pissed you off in the first place
I tried to convince you
But you persisted (kept on?) anyway
There's no excuse, no saving grace
Hide behind that screen and save your face

How can we expect the world to change
if we're not even willing to change ourselves

We're all on the same side
What's the point in all of this
You keep running your mouth
putting them down
Doing the same damn thing that pissed you off in the first place
You do the same damn thing that pissed you off in the first place
Track Name: Trying to Survive
More than once I packed it all up
Singing real friends in a car that fucking sucked
Just to clear my head and make some space
But there's one thing I can't seem to forget
That's the culmination of all my regrets
And how I just don't know how to forgive myself

Better days will come again
At least that's what they said

Id really like to focus on tomorrow
But I'm still blinded by today
I need to learn how to make my own decisions
before I'm old and grey
I never really liked being a kid anyway
Until all these bills were stacked miles high
Now I'm just stuck trying to survive

I still don't have what it takes to live on my own
I've over drafted buying everything I own
Spending recklessly will get you nowhere fast
You ask me what happened to us
And why our futures on hold collecting dust
I want to give you everything but I already spent it all

They say when trees fall down
It doesn't make a sound
If no one is around
To watch the bark begin to break
As the whole thing loses shape
I only hope the grounds as soft for me when I fall

Life's too short
To make me break down like this
And to make me
Succumb to the pressure
Track Name: Redundant
Redundant
So I guess this ones on me
how redundant for you to not see what I see
I know you've got your ways and I've got mine
It would've taken too much time for you to try and see
Anything but yourself that completed me

I know I'm still wasting time
Could've picked a better life
if I hadn't fucked it up and seen the world through crossed eyes
I still wish you were here by my side

It's like I've seen this road before
I'm stuck on repeat
Left alone to grind my teeth
I'm melted to the core
I'm still stuck on how we got here
When what we wanted was so clear
You said that we would last forever
At least that's what I thought

It's funny how they say time heals all wounds
But how can it when all I see is you
Everything's a constant reminder
You won't give me the time of day I guess some things never change
I see now that it's time for me to be on my own way
Maybe someday this will all make sense
But for now it feels like it never will
So I'll just sit still in this corner of my room for a while and then stand
Just like I've done before
