Track Name: Stitches
I don't speak to myself anymore, cause I'm not worth the conversation.
And I don't lean on myself anymore, cause I just do not have the patience.
So I'll stand up on my soapbox, and preach to my choir of no one.
I don't speak to myself anymore, cause I'm not worth the conversation.

"You've got a dark mind", she said. And it's spreading into yours.
"You had a bad night", she said. "Cause I found you crawling on all fours".
And I don't think I'm worth your time. Could you say you're forever mine?

Cause we're full of contradictions, and we live like an addiction. Like eczema it itches, like sutures and in stitches.

Things start making sense, when you come to terms with nothingness.
Track Name: Forgetting How to Breathe
You can't have a dream, if you're drunk all the time.
You tell me to let you down, when all I want is to catch you.

I'm the person, you rely on.
But I'm not a person anymore.

Sometimes it's like forgetting how to breathe.
If I had said something, it would mean nothing at all.
If a vampire drank my blood it would get him drunk.
It's not that I don't love you, but it's the way you make me feel, that gives me hell. That trips me up. And it's fucked up. It's fucked me up.

I'm the person, you rely on.
But I'm not a person anymore.
Track Name: Hands Off The Wheel
Bleeding out in the bath, could it be you asked for that?
You can't take that back, no matter how much time has passed.
Can you hear my screams? Are you crying out for me?
What will make you see, that you're the only one for me.

Cause in all my dreams, you're still here with me.
But when I wake up, I am drowning, nearly suffocating.
I can't just help how this makes me feel.
And I can't take my hands off the wheel.

Armies of black cats, this kind of luck feels like a trap.
I can still hear your laugh, it's haunted me from three months past.
Wish I could see you smile. I haven't in quite a while.
Stubborn's still your style, my blood is filling up the tile.

Cause in all my dreams, you're still here with me.
But when I wake up, I am drowning, nearly suffocating.
I can't just help how this makes me feel.
And I can't take my hands off the wheel.
Track Name: Drown
If I am crazy, than I only am for you. Every song and story, I have penned them all for you. Every letter I write, scribbled to my muse.

And all this extra money, and all these drinks, and every trip in spacious cars. And every smile I wrench out goes out to you. It all gets left to you.

So drown me in your swimming pool. And lay me in your backyard to dry. It's how I want to die.

Deceit comes quickly, but the aftermath hits hard. My arms keep getting trapped underneath your body. You're always sleeping, and I'm still dreaming that you would beg me to stay. To ride out one more winter, instead of pushing me away.

So drown me in your swimming pool. And lay me in your backyard to dry. I wont mind.

Monday, I give up. Tuesday, I don't give a fuck. Thursday, I just want to drink. Friday, I am puking in the sink. And that's fine.
