Track Name: Jagged Pieces
We built this monster faking our best faces
Attaching ourselves while we had the patience
Indulging lust that fed our first connection
But shallow romance didn’t bring degradation.

There were holes in our chest we were filling
As jagged pieces that were slowly killing us
But we got lost in those moments just looking for something to hold on to

Staying up all night telling our stories but we weren’t listening
Baring our wounds but never curing
Till nothing's left, but we kept going
I need a stiff drink to keep from showing
We keep this storm behind closed doors

You dragged my name right through the mud
Well, that's lights out i'm giving up
I guess enough is enough
You're a fading memory with no luck

Late drives and early morning evenings
Looking back on all that I believed in
Tear down my educated structures
Leaving bits of myself in ex-lovers

There's a hole in my chest that I've been filling
With drinks and habits that are slowly killing me
I'm not present in this moment
I'm just looking for something to hold on to

Staying up all night making excuses
I can’t save this
Bleeding from my mouth from all the prodding
There's nothing left but you can take it
I need a stiff drink to stop the shaking
So go on, walk out of that door

You dragged my name right thru the mud
Well That's lights out i'm giving up
I guess enough is enough
You're a fading memory with no luck

You swear you’re changing
No, your not changing at all
I swear I’m changing
No, I’m not changing at all
We Swear we’re changing
No, we're not changing at all

If your changing it’s wrong
Cause everything that we built
Was sincere meant to spill
And I know how you hate this disaster
Track Name: Simplicity
Blank walls they start closing in
The water strikes, hits my face like a javelin
Numb confused I turned to rage
I Learned to smile through the pain when they’d say your name
And I keep wondering if I'm the same as then
Pictures framed of adolescence
Stripped away the feeling of my innocence
On this stone I lay my condolences

Now nothing feels the same
I’m shaking from the change
And nothing feels ok.

And I've been waiting for your call all night
Tell me that everything's alright
We'll make plans to hit a show talking shit while 40’s flow
But you're not here anymore
Still I’ve been waiting for your call all night
hoping it's lie and you're alright
I guess our plans don't always hold, I still make them hope you know
But you don't call anymore


Sometimes it fills me with shame
When I collapse to life's weight knowing you'd never cave
Promises tomorrow's bring
Now they're all damned, broken, but left me with words to sing
Still got our records and some fading photographs
I’d trade them all so I could have you back
Bring back the days we felt we were invincible
I try like hell but I can’t seem to smile like you

Now nothing feels the same
I’m shaking from the change
And nothing feels ok.

And I've been waiting for your call all night
Tell me that everything's alright
We'll make plans to hit a show talking shit while 40’s flow
But you're not here anymore
Still I’ve been waiting for your call all night
hoping it's lie and you're alright
I guess our plans don't always hold, I still make them hope you know
But you don't call anymore

Now nothing feels the same
I’m shaking from the change
And nothing feels ok.
Cause you don’t call anymore.
Track Name: Get Nasty
So turn me
Against me
Framed my skin as profane
I Inhaled the shame
Pervert me
To perceive
Our best nature as sinful
My lovers all whores

Youthful grins, this can’t be sin, it's just the brushing of our skin
We both desire to be admired and breath each other in
It took an age of awkward shame to learn to let the love in
But how many did we leave behind lost in their confusion?

But it's not deserved
Our hearts turned to our curse
And were left desires we’re taught to abhor
Espousing repression when we need respect more
No, it's not deserved
Our hearts turned to our curse
And were left desires we’re taught to abhor
Espousing repression when we need respect
More

And when we wake up, could we even love ourselves
Escape the hate they sell and love ourselves
Track Name: Model Competitors
A vessel small, thirsts for cause, desperate to make sense of it all
Call us pattern takers but rarely pattern breakers
We outline, reify, models of the world in our mind
Call us pattern makers but rarely pattern breakers

Cause we try to deny the rocky foundation that makes up our lives
Suspend doubt, we lash out and strengthen our zeal when we stamp out all who may try to undermine an order we know to be a divine design. A divine design.

We’re all searching for some structure, shivering apes trying not to suffer
Give us certainty and we will fall to our knees
In the end that's all we're after, some foresight to avoid disasters
Give us certainty and leave our poor minds at ease

And with time some may find secular methods for drawing the lines
Call us pattern makers, still rarely pattern breakers
The experts preach, masses receive, from coats whose evidence few can perceive
Still just pattern takers, we’re all pattern takers

Cause few can understand the complexity and nuance but they stand
And cast doubt or lash out at primitive thoughts they must stamp out
Destroy the lure of theistic lore from an order we know be a tested design and proven design.

We’re all searching for some structure, shivering apes trying not to suffer
Give us certainty, and we will fall to our knees
In the end that's all we're after, some foresight to avoid disasters
Give us certainty and leave our poor minds at ease

So we pound our chest
Swear that we know best
From the text we’ve read we’ve got it figured out
But take a look around
How should we feel now
When we preach like them and we hate like them

We’re all searching for some structure, shivering apes trying not to suffer
Give us certainty and we will fall to our knees
In the end that's all we're after, some foresight to avoid disasters
Yeah, leave our poor minds at ease
Track Name: Blurred Limes
I’m staring deep into my eyes
I’m Feeling dazed and invincible
Like nothing could touch me
Smug, content, yea, delusional
Maybe I shouldn't think that way
And maybe you shouldn't either
Should I go back to my pathway
Let despair sink in deeper

So face the fact that someday you’ll be dead and gone
Lost in a sea of energy floating through space and time
It's not that bad you know, when you live your life like it's one big show
Sit back and bask in glow of this florescent hole

Put my hands in my pockets
Contemplate how I got here
A Couple drinks put me at ease
A Couple more put me on my knees
The white glow of this bathroom
Is making me feel so heavenly
I think that I could stay right here
Give them a wink when the come find me


So face the fact that someday you’ll be dead and gone
Lost in a sea of energy floating through space and time
It's not that bad you know when you live your life like it's one big show
Sit back and bask in the glow
Of this florescent hole

If it’s a lie, go on and lie to me
I feel alive
I’m feeling good tonight

We’re already living in hell
So whats the problem with another drink?
I made room, left my lunch in the sink and I leave it to the others to cry
Cause this place was fucked long before we joined the ride
and yeah we sing about the bummer days but I’m trying to live my life in a better way
So go ahead and waste your days with frowns
Me, I’m buying my friends another round
