Track Name: Red River
Ask me about the man that I’ve become and I’ll let you in on secrets. I’m afraid of everything I’ve always said I’m not. But the lion’s throat that ate my heart says courage is all we got, so I’ve kept my head high the best that I could. Eric, I’ve given all I have to give, it’s your job to choose the will to live. That choice is harder the older you get, but we have nothing that we need to prove because we’ve got nothing left to lose. I trust you will be a better man than the one that I pretend to be. That choice is harder the older you get. Ask me about how I’ve cried out wolf howls, ask me about how I’ve cried out wolf howls to moons that aren’t there. I am afraid of what I’ve become.
Track Name: Robbie Hansen
Always leading losing battles with no meaning, I’ll be the one to blame when everyone I’ve loved forgets my name. Oh, I can write it down, but history decides who sticks around.
Track Name: The Rapture
I found the hands I needed, last fall when I was defeated by the ghosts of my former self. There’s no god but I was in hell, drifting from place to place in search of somewhere safe. Skinny legs and wolf eyes, you are what saved my life and gave purpose to the word “survive.” Promise we’ll never sink and I will never leave to sulk on salt stained sleeves. I’m done with the old me, and the monsters on the wall. I‘ve moved on from the fall: good vibes about that time, but now I’ve made you mine. I’m blowing kisses at the moon again, to signify that broken hearts can mend. Let’s not forget what we had back then, but realize there’s still safety in the term “best friends.” Hold my hand and I’ll hold yours.
Track Name: Leather Empire
So fill your lungs with emotion, you're just a kid and you're broken.
Screaming that everything's unfair, you search for things left in last year.
Watch as your life begins to fade, you will grow up pretending you're are not afraid.
That's not enough.
As your skin grows hard and your heart turns numb, you realize the man that you have become.
Now you're nothing, searching for friends and the love that you're losing,
searching for something to keep you from moving backwards.
Track Name: No Pizza
It's been feeling like the weather last year: lots of grey and anxious fear. Who am I to suggest things change? I hope for sun but it always rains. Look around at everything, the ship has sunk and so have we. It'll always fucking rain. Why do I wake up? I'm just existing, staring out windows that someone left open. I feel the breeze as it passes through the room, into the sheets and clothes that smell like you. I'm miserable. I can't sleep in this lonely bed. Sometimes it's just too much when I'm alone.
Track Name: Drug Lord
I hate everyone that I know, then I wonder “where did my friends go?” Fucking poor me, always suffering. Everyone will let me down, one way or the other. One day I’ll be dead and gone, maybe then we’ll get along? I’m not holding breath, but what do I know? I know nothing.
Track Name: See Ya Later
I left my heart at home, or somewhere, I don’t know. Fed it to the lions in some act of violence. I’m feeling vague and I can’t seem to concentrate on things that matter most; I’m slipping into the unknown. I’m no more. I’m not around to hold your hand. We’re strangers, and I’m sorry. The night turns into the day, but the sun eludes me. I don’t think I’m supposed to be happy here. So I run away from this, from myself. I drift with the wind; the sound of swaying trees helps me to fall asleep. The branches stop to ask, when are you coming back? And I wake up and fucking spit in their face. Just because we're rooted doesn't mean we're in place. The sound of swaying trees helps me to fall asleep. The branches stop to ask,when are you coming back? At night I drift away.
Track Name: Good Vibes
All my sad songs have been used up, they've had enough of my heartsick, thrown-up bull shit. Em I need this.
Track Name: Monsters
Salt stains on my shirtsleeves from when you left poor me. Our hearts beat at the same tone for years, now they beat alone. Breathe in, pretend I'm okay. Breath out, I am not okay. Move on, the motions are the same. Toothpaste kisses haunt my nightmares, when I wake up, why aren't you there? There's a fucking hole in my chest: you're gone, I'm gone, there's nothing left. Feel the weeks turn into months, remember I loved you once? Who I knew has to turned to dust, blown away and broke my trust; I wave goodbye to that, I wave goodbye to us. Salt stains on my shirtsleeves, you left and I found a new me.
