Track Name: If I Could Go Deep Into The Ocean I Think I Could Find Peace
It’s not easy you should know first hand what it’s like. You’re wrapped around me like snake. We were fake, and contrived. I doubt anything could’ve saved you, and I doubt anything will save me. I want to stay far away from any sign of humanity. You’re wrapped around me like a snake. You were laughing, because I couldn’t walk. She was yelling because I couldn’t speak for myself and I know that even though I can’t remember that night, I’ll never forget it. Turn the lights down, and go to sleep, you said. I might wake up choking on blood, but that’s a risk I’m willing to take. We’re so fake. We’re so fake. But don’t you ever say you were a bad friend to me, you were better than anyone else I knew, you fucking did things for me, that no one else could have, and I miss you dearly friend, I miss you so dearly. And it’s so easy to write songs about you because the words just flow from my mouth like the like a goddamn lake, those nights we spent together mean more than anything to me. But I haven’t seen you in a while friend, I miss you more than I can say, and more than you can understand. Let me tell you what we’ve missed these last months. Let’s find out what we’ve been missing. Let’s find out what we’ve been missing, old friend. You’re wrapped around me like a snake. I’ll see you soon, old friend.
Track Name: You Were So Scared, I Was So Cold, We Were So Happy
I don’t think you know what you do to me. When you look at me with those eyes, filled with love, I have nothing to give you. All I have is my words. You know how much those 10 minutes meant to me because they mean more to you than I am able to understand. I don’t understand your love for me. All I know is that when I think about you, it makes me happy.
Track Name: I Am Sorry For Everything I Have Done, For I Am An Imperfect Man
I don’t think I can go on. Not after something like this. I clearly am not wanted. And why should I be? I need to tie up some loose ends. Then I’ll be on my way. I never thought death would come so easy. But I guess I shouldn’t be surpised. I’ve struck down my heroes. They mean nothing to me now. I’m so sorry for everything I’ve done. I can’t make amends. I know I seem melodramtic. So be it. I’ve killed off all my friends. All that’s left is myself.
Track Name: I Fell Asleep Bleeding And Woke Up Covered In Blood
I am unclean. Moving on is harder than it seems.
Track Name: Everything Is Temporary, Yet We Still Find Ourselves Worrying About Things We Won't Remebmber Two Days From Now
I woke up this morning with a massive headache that quaked my brain, and my arms covered in blood. I guess this what happens when you fuck up. I killed myself yesterday, but I’m still breathing today. No one knows why. I’ve burned holes into my brain. No one knows why. I hate myself more every day. This isn’t sadness. This is chaos. I’m not here to be your friend. I couldn’t be anyone’s friend.
