Track Name: Painful As It Is
What've we become?
To forfeit all this time
I think I'll give it up
and take back what is mine
I wrote another chapter
Another story in my book
Not about life but what comes after
It's exactly how it looks
I think I'll give it up
I think I'll give it up

These bitter things inside of me,
They cut me up inside
I'm bleeding out internally
I forgot to feel alive
Let it fall by the wayside
Your bookend on a shelf
A bit of breathing to help you pass the time
I guess you gave up on yourself
I guess you're giving up
I guess you're giving up

A shiver down my spine
Ignore my calls
I've got nowhere to roam
Track Name: Al
Long Drive
I lay awake passenger's side I
Count the stars to pass the time
Friday Night
Four A.M. with the Four Arm Guys I
Found the time to feel alive
Pack my shit
Let's get away I don't wanna know where
Grab your bags ,I wanna go there
Grab your bags, we're going nowhere

Just drive
I'll never know home unless I gain some perspective
Let's go
While we're young and fucked up
There's no better time than now

Fade out
And fall apart when no one sees it
When the music's loud I'm fine
Let it go
I feel at ease on foreign couches
Vivid dreams help me get by
Just last night...

A crowded dim-lit living room
Your brothers standing next to you
Our worn out voices are living proof
They're beat to shit but they speak the truth
You feel it deep down inside of you
You feel it deep down inside of you
You feel it deep down inside of you
You feel it deep down and I do, too

I wanna see the world for what it really is
And I know no one else can make that choice for me
The choice to leave
So I'm packing up and setting out to sea


Just drive
I'll never know home unless I gain some perspective
Let's go
While we're young and fucked up
There's no better time than now
Let's go
While we're young and fucked up
There's no better time than now
No better time than now
Track Name: Dead At 22
Locked in these cages
And glued to the floor
Biting at cut up hands that don't
feed us anymore

Nothing to offer
My patience is swept
Wiped clean entirely
I'm left to repay this debt

When these words are spoken
Only then can you see
When this life is over
Only then will we be free

Counting my paces, retracing my steps
Worried all night and it scares me to death
The loss of life is a song that haunts
Confused as to why I hum it all night long

When these words are spoken
Only then can you see
When this life is over
Only then will we be free

Hail Mary,
Hello how are you?
I greet you with love and
I'm sorry to bother you it's just that
Your son, well he...
...has left me
And if I'm being honest it's damn near lonely
My hour of death has come, its arms open wide

Hallelujah, O Mother of mercy
You took long enough, I'm tired of waiting
In all the words that I said
I have one last request
May I rest in peace,
Amen

When these words are spoken
Only then can you see
When this life is over
Only then will we be free
Track Name: Humming Curses
Humming curses at the stars
Laying on the hood of my car
Such a crazy melody
When you're laying next to me

It's late it's nearly three A.M.
Awake, ungraced by sleep's presence
A lifetime's not near long enough

Not until I'm through
With you
My hands, they tremble
When you're around
You can't leave
Until I'm through with you

Our lives are such a pretty scar
Let me trace your pretty scars
Hold me 'til I'm black and blue
I remember laying under you

When we were humming curses at the stars
Laying on the hood of your car
A lifetime's not near time enough


Not until I'm through
With you
My hands, they tremble
When you're around
You can't leave
Until I'm through with you

And we were humming curses at the stars
Laying on the hood of my car
Humming curses at the stars
Laying on the hood of your car
I felt you breathing into me
We fade into eternity
