Track Name: Critical Thinking
I barely made it through this last year. I barely made it to the ocean before I sank. The tension I found is alarming, but no more than the pseudo dormancy. I've been keeping my head down for almost an hour, been keeping my thoughts down for almost forever, I hate the way that I hate the success of others.

This made me want to be anything other that what I ought to be. I'm jaded, we're empty, I'd hate to be the back of the pack. I can't think critically, no one came to save me. This place ruined me when it tried its best to fix me.

I've been putting up faces in unwelcome spaces. I'm keeping track of the snow that's melting the summer glow, all along counting the reasons why. All my friends are sad as shit, I don't know how to fix shit. My burnt out memory has lost why I came here, it's obvious that I can't last.

This made me want to be anything other that what I ought to be. I'm jaded, we're empty, I'd hate to be the back of the pack. I can't think critically, no one came to save me. This place ruined me when it tried its best to fix me.
Track Name: Even If it Kills Me
Sure, it's finally December and I've been thinking about New Year's and onward and how I can't stand the mood of how things have been only because I know that they've been better. And my friends only worry about things far over their heads, I made a pledge last winter to not end up like they did.

We're losing sleep every night, but at least I still have hope, we're losing sleep every night, it's like a picture of home.

Do you remember the old days? Things used to feel okay. You've been away for almost a year, now. I'd hate to be the bearer of bad news but shit just got so rough. You'll find a way to not feel so damn hopeless anymore.

Kids are complaining on the internet how they hate everything about this year, but when the calender skips what the fuck will you gain? Nothing. All that I know is that I swear I'll get out of this fucking place even if it kills me.

We're losing sleep every night, but at least I still have hope, we're losing sleep every night, it's like a picture of home.

Do you remember the old days? Things used to feel okay. You've been away for almost a year, now. I'd hate to be the bearer of bad news but shit just got so rough. You'll find a way to not feel so damn hopeless anymore.

Maybe this Next Year, I'll be strong enough for both of us, today, I'm just a coward. Maybe this Next Year, I'll have cleaned out all the monsters that live underneath my bed.

Maybe this next year I'll be strong enough for everyone, or cleaned out all the monsters. (All that I know is I swear I'll get out of this fucking place.)
Maybe this next year, maybe I'll keep trying, maybe I'll get better even if it kills me. (All that I know is I swear I'll get out of this fucking place.)
Track Name: I Used To
Long nights dragged out in bed, brash thoughts run through my head, I can't shake this feeling. I hate it.
When shit gets real, I can just run away from all the monsters.
I thought I was stronger than this soul catching breeze that blows right through me.
When shit gets real, I can just hide from everything that scares me.
I used to fight the monsters, I used to stay awake, I used to fight for what I want.
When shit gets real, my friends won't sink, and I'll be left here broken.
I thought I was stronger, I used to stay awake, I used to fight for what I want.
Now I'm all but dead.
Track Name: Brash Thoughts and Why I Lose Sleep
Where did my self-respect go? Can I even claim that as mine? Where did this heart of gold go? Did I even have one at all? And I thought about how I loved the old days, and I thought about when I didn't hate me. I thought about the days that I believed in praying. I used to believe.

And I thought about how I loved the old days, and I thought about when the world embraced me. I thought about the days that I believed in everything I shouldn't believe.

I think about how I hate the old days. I think about how the world resents me. I think about the people on street corners begging, and I don't believe.
