Track Name: A Year In Review
I learned a lot this year.
Confrontation is something I no longer fear.
I’m sick of spilling my guts out on this page.
So I’ll say it right now to your face.
I won’t hold back from saying things I want to.
I can’t, I can’t let it build up inside.
I won’t hold back saying things I need to.
I’ve held this in for so long and wasted time.


I won’t hold back from saying things like:
I love you, I hate you, or I wish that you were mine.
I love you, I hate you, or I wish that you would die.
And although these things should be weighing down on me,
I’m still the happiest I’ll ever be.
Track Name: Scream Goodbye
You only say “I love you” when you’ve had to much to drink.
To be completely honest, I could care less if I sink.
I won’t fall asleep without wishing you’d disintegrate.
This bed is like an early grave and I am sinking deep into the dirt.
Scream goodbye, at the top of my lungs tonight. Scream goodbye.
You’re a fake and you’re a liar.
Scream goodbye, at the top of my lungs tonight.
Scream goodbye. Let your words fuel the fire.
I won’t sit around waiting for things to change.
Pounding my head against the wall always makes me feel the same.


I can’t count how many times I just bit my tongue.
I’m losing all my balance and my mouth is filling up with blood again.
I don’t regret a thing I did, I don’t regret a thing I said.
I’d drive nails into my ears to get your voice out of my head.
And I would rather die, or staple gun my eyes then have to see your face again,
You're wasting all my time.
You're wasting all my time so scream goodbye.
Track Name: Sink Like Lead
I’m at a loss for words, and I’m running out of trite catch phrases
to let you know how much you mean,
So I’ll let it all come out naturally:
You were there to save us when we lost it all.
The weight of the world doesn’t seem so heavy with you by our side.
And I know I’ll never take all of you for granted,
I’ve been humbled by you, stumbled across friends near and far.
You may be far away but you’re close at heart.
We’re going down like anchors, we’re sinking like lead, we’re in over our heads.
You are right there to save us when we’re fading fast, and we’re breaking down.
You are the only reason we kick for the surface, we keep on breathing.
I don’t know how we can thank you screaming so loud, you’re drowning us out tonight!
Track Name: Best Excuse
Give me the whole truth.
Give me you’re best excuse.
Because I just wasted my last wish
on “Give me enough rope to hang myself with.”
And lately I’ve been looking down,
it could be because that it’s getting colder
or that I’m getting older.
And I watch the trees,
as they all loose their leaves.
They’re just like me, I’m loosing everything.
I’m looking for something.


I’m looking for anything at all.
I’m looking for closure,
false hope or something to hold on to when I fall.
So give me something to believe in, anything at all.
And I don’t wanna give up,
but lately it seems I’m down on my luck.
So give me something to believe in.
Cause I’m loosing it all.
Track Name: Gag Reflex
It’s been a long time since I’ve seen you, and I’m much better off.
I’ve got more than a few good reasons I’ve been ignoring all your calls.
You said you listened, but you never heard a word.
And I’ve been throwing up all the lies that I’ve been fed,
like how you had my back, or you‘d be there till the end.
And I’ve been throwing up all the lies that I’ve been fed,
and there’s no nice way to say this: you’re just not my friend.
What where you thinking? And where do you get off?
Thinking you could burn this bridge before I just push you off.
And I won’t make them draw lines or choose sides.
Because one day they’ll all see those skeletons you hide.


I can’t forgive you now, things wont get better,
you only cared about yourself.
I’ve held this in for far too long,
what I thought you were was something else.
You never cared, you never listened.
You’re as welcome as cancer, so I’ll keep my door locked tight,
and if you know what best for you, you’ll stay out of my sight.
Track Name: Wait Up
Two and a half months on the road,
I can’t stop thinking about what you’re doing at home.
Don’t get me wrong, this is still what I love most,
but I just want to hold you close.
One night with you just wasn’t enough,
so I’m hoping like hell that you’ll wait up for me to come back home.
So I’ll sing one more song to let you know when I get home,
you better pick up the phone because I don’t want to be alone.
I’ve been through at least forty eight states,


still no one compares to you.
You may be laughing but it's true.
I swear it’s true.
I’ve been chasing you for a year now
and I’ll keep running even if my knees give out.
So make this song number two.
Two and a half months on the road,

I swear it’s true.
I’ve been chasing you for a year now
and I’ll keep running even if my knees give out.
So make this song number two.
I’d still do anything just to be with you.
Track Name: I Hope He Kills You
I won't say “I hope your happy with him”.
I promised myself this year I would tell the truth.
I’ll pretend my heart’s not breaking.
It’s taking everything I have not to call you back.
I hope he breaks you down.
The next time you call, I won’t be around.
No one ever made me feel like you did
and now I’m struggling to feel anything at all.
It may sound mean like I’m not understanding.
I understand it all too well and I hope that you fall.
You’re always on the wrong end of the turnpike.
I want to choke myself to death with the phone line.
“Go your own way and I’ll be with you”,

(FSF - Wearing Thin) but nothing that you ever say could make me hate you.
Don’t want to laugh last, I don’t want to say “ I told you so”.
I want you to call me back and say “I love you”, because I’ve got nowhere to go.
These nights spent alone without you are dragging me down.
Though I know that this seems bitter,
It's how I get through these nights without you.
I hope that this doesn’t come out wrong
but I’d do anything to make you feel on top of the world,
and I’ll still be here just like I have always been.
