Track Name: Die
We’re all dying slowly
You only have one chance to do what you had in mind
Oh please don”t waste your time

We’re all dying slowly
You only have one chance to do what you had in mind
Oh please don”t waste your time

But things are changing
You can wear a smile on your face any day anyway
Were all dying slowly
You only have one chance to do what you had in mind
Oh did you even try

We’re all dying slowly
We’re all dying slowly
We’re all dying slowly
We’re all dying slowly
Track Name: Fathers Day
Only met you twice
And the second time
Wasn’t that great
But neither was I

Only met you twice
And the second time
Wasn’t that great
But neither am I

Only met you twice
And the second time
Wasn’t that great
But neither am I

Only met you a twice
And the second time
You gave me a bag of weed
And I said you’d be alright

You needed my help
And I said I can’t
Why didn’t I try
To be a nice guy

You weren’t a great a guy and that is fine
You weren’t a great a guy and that is fine

You weren’t a great guy and neither am I
You weren’t a great guy and neither am I
Track Name: Is This Real
Wake up
No make up
No in ‘n’ out
I’m fading

Wake up
No make up
No in ‘n’ out
I’m fading

Is this real
Or without meaning
Is this real

Stay up
Too late
Thinking of
The worst things

Is this real
Or without meaning
Is this real

Wake up
No make up
No in ‘n’ out
I’m fading without

Is this real
Or without meaning
Is this real

Wake up
Track Name: First Night
Locked into your eyes
My problems drift away
Hurt me and hurt me
Until I ran
Now I have nothing
Just a lonely man

Any day
Any day
I’ll be better any day
Any day
Any day

Any day
Any day
I’ll be better any day
Any day
Any day

I don’t know why
I can’t be happy
Without you
What is worth having
Everything
Will be fine

Any day
Any day
I’ll be better any day
Any day
Any day

Any day
Any day
Any day
Any day

Remember to love
Remember to brush
Your hair and teeth
Don’t get enough

Any day
Any day
I’ll be better any day
Any day
Any day

Any day
Any day
Any day
Any day
Track Name: Begin Again
Begin Again
Are you my friend
Wasting
My mind again

You said that I’d be okay
But I don’t know if it’s true babe
What could you look at me and say
I don’t know what would make me feel okay

Begin again
We’re your friends
Wasting
Our minds again

You looked at me I was crying
Why did you run and say goodbye when
I signed up for it every day
You don’t know what it takes to be me

Begin Again
We’re your friends
Wasting
My mind again

You said that I’d be okay
But I don’t know if that’s true babe
What is inside you
I don’t know
But it’s dark and like glue

Begin again
We’re your friends
Wasting
Our mind again
Our mind again
Track Name: White Lodge
I’m done trying to figure out what you expect
What up on the weekends
You’re not making sense
There’s no way I’ll find you in the end
There’s no way I’ll find you in the end

Before I’d try to escape
Hide in my high
What a waste
There’s no way I’ll find you in the end
There’s no way I’ll find you in the end

I’m done trying to figure out what you expect
What up on the weekends
You’re not making sense
Track Name: Kindest Person
In a world color
You’d be the brightest one
I’d be a darker number
Not even on the same spectrum
As you

Kindest One
Of ‘em all

Even though I only saw you in a dream once
A while ago

Kindest one
Please don’t run
Fight that evil head on
You can’t lose and I know you won’t
You can’t lose and I know you won’t

In a world of color
You’d be the brightest one

In a world of color
You’d be the brightest one
I’d be a darker number
Not even on the same spectrum
As you
Track Name: Frag
Favorite possessions are at my friend’s house
My apartment’s to small for my wall of guitar amps
You don’t understand my simple problems
Why would you understand my stupid problems

Going on and on
And on and on and on

Going on and on
And on and on and on

Been through hell and back
Why didn’t I die
Had a heart attack
It was in my mind

Going on and on
And on and on and on

Going on and on
And on and on and on

Going on
Going on

All my favorite things
Simplest dreams
Covered in that pink paint
All my favorite setting

Going on and on
And on and on and on

Going on and on
And on and on and on

Going on
Going on
Track Name: Tough
Why did you say it then
You know you were lying
Empty promises
From a mad person

You know I love you
But I can’t be near you too
You know I love you
But I can’t be near you too

Known you for so long
It always felt wrong
Except for two days
I guess that’s all it takes

You started out fine
But then you crossed the line
Why did I stay the first time
Why did I stay the first time

You know I love you
But I can’t be near you too
You know I love you
But I can’t be near you too
Track Name: Drifting
Drifting off
Hopefully to somewhere better
Waking up
Feeling like I just met her

Keep your head up
They’d always say
Don’t give us a sob story today
Don’t give us a sob story today
Keep your head up
They’d always say

Known you for so long
It’s certainly making it harder

Keep your head up
They’d always say
Don’t give us a sob story today
Don’t give us a sob story today
Keep your head up
They’d always say
