they say someday "things will change, And it will be perfectly okay." But the only thing that has changed Is that I can see through the haze. Watch my friends Fade to gray These stale routines Drain their lives away Drain their lives away Drain their lives away And it's killing me to believe That you're truly happy With the choices you've made The substances may dull the pain But they will never wash them away Overworkd Underpaid These stale routines Drain their lives away Drain their lives away Drain their lives away The seconds pass like hours And these hours pass like days What do you know about being afraid? I woke up this morning at the end of my rope Covered in vomit from head to toe I can't keep living this way Something has to change So tell me please, Were you searching for contentment? You came home empty handed with a feeling of resentment Smoke and mirrors, it's just an illusion The real world's a joke and that's my conclusion.

You say it's time for me to give in And forgive and forget those awful things you did You say it's time for me to grow up To know my age and act it, bury the hatchet now I've spent some time These past few nights Alone in my head with an ax to grind Loosing my mind Swallow my pride But it just feels Like I have been swallowing knives I can't count how many times you've let me down I'm so sick of pretending That I want you around I've spent some time These past few nights Alone in my head with an ax to grind Loosing my mind Swallow my pride But it just feels Like I have been swallowing knives

Show me please some clarity behind all this Show me all the answers, prove they exist Teach me whats right by showing me whats wrong Still learning from the wisdom in all these pissed off punk rock songs They tell me you're in heaven, I really hope that's true If i don't believe in heaven, then where the hell are you tonight I need you i miss you tonight I need you i miss you tonight Pulling out my hair and clawing out my eyes I'd give anything just to have you by my side Cause i can't keep my head up straight on nights like these Do you ever miss your kids and wife and family They tell me you're in heaven, I really hope that's true If i don't believe in heaven, then where the hell are you tonight I need you i miss you tonight I need you i miss you tonight They tell me your in heaven and if that's true Tell god it doesn't need you half as much as i do

If you find fate tell him I said, “Fuck HIM!” In lessons he learned, he never learned stay. A cheap one-liner, a steady drink, I wonder if it’s all I’ll ever be. I chased this dream across a country. I’ve offered up everything that I’ve always loved, 'Cause this whole thing was my bad idea to start. “Don’t take this for granted,” my mother says to me. “Treat it so sacred and guard it like belief.” You can fake it for them but I’ll always know 'Cause I sit slighted on top of the world. Take it from me, business or belief? Take it from me, your business is to leave.

This isn’t good morning, this is gracious bad news. I was calling to scar you with what I’m ‘bout to do. 'Cause you burned your sorrows and I burned mine too, but you kept the ashes and now they’re keeping you. What’s it like to be honest, honestly happy, and say all the things that you know that you’re thinking? What’s it like to be honest, honestly happy, and say all the things that you know that you’re thinking? I don’t need anyone or anything. Between you and me is a distance that I bridge with sleep, so. I’m cutting clearly and straight to your room, Crawl in your bed to that windowless view. ‘Cause these blankets and sheets will bury me if I let myself go to your fathers beliefs. “You will always be the boy who stumbled in too soon,” she said. “You will always be the boy that stumbled in too soon,” she said. What’s it like to be honest, honestly happy, and say all the things that you know that you’re thinking? What’s it like to be honest, honestly happy? I don’t need anyone or anything. Between you and me is a distance that I bridge with sleep, so. (Between you and me) I want it so badly but I had to break that promise I made for your front porch that day. (Between you and me) I spent last night talking secrets and graves, the place that my promise has now wormed its way. And your parents were on your front lawn screaming. I’m the kid that’s keeping you lost and I could never be what you want. I could never, I could never. And your parents were on your front lawn screaming. I’m the kid that’s keeping you lost and I could never be what you want. I could never, I could never. And your parents were on your front lawn screaming. I’m the kid that’s keeping you lost and I could never be what you want. I could never, I could never.
