Track Name: Fucked Up Kids
We’re taking bats to the neighborhood
Where we don’t belong
Where they said we can’t go
Carve our names in all the wood, in the concrete
They think they’re safe in their homes
So they can see it, remind them that we exist
This place is not their own
This city’s our birthright; we’ll keep our fists tight
So they’ll know
Hey! I can say we’re all just fucked up kids and that’s ok
If we don’t belong to anyone or anything
We’re all just fucked up kids walking on promises
We’re breaking all of them, but we could be
We’re getting good at being bad
They don’t understand
What’s it hurt? They don’t know
Apologies, we never have
We’re a shot of light in the dark, a faint glow
But we burn the brightest during the night shift
Hanging with New York’s finest
So when the bars close and everyone heads home
We don’t go
Hey! I can say we’re all just fucked up kids and that’s ok
If we don’t belong to anyone or anything
We’re all just fucked up kids walking on promises
We’re breaking all of them, but we could be
We can roam the streets, drinking Genesee
Running from police, taking shots til’ we’re lost
Or disturb the peace, cause we never sleep
Down your drink and we’re gone again
But hey! We’re all just fucked up kids and that’s ok
If we don’t belong to anyone or anything
We’re all just fucked up kids
Breaking before we bend, born to lose in the end
But we could be more
Born to lose in the end, but we could be more than this
Track Name: The Real
Just turn your back on me
It seems that I work better that way
Funny how things never change
Fuck you, your friends, your ways
There’s nothing left to say for yourself
Make distance, move on and repeat
Watcha gonna do when you’ve got something to prove, nothing to lose?
Watcha gonna do? Everyone’s counting on you
I wanna stand for something real.
Say something of substance, be honest and shed old ideals
So forget my name if you don’t like the way
I’ve grown how I’m adjusting with age
I promise it won’t change a thing
See, I’ve been raised on teeth, from always falling flat on my face
Sometimes it’s just best when I bleed
I wanna stand for something real
Say something of substance, be honest and shed old ideals
You’d rather run away than to face it head on
Rather hide your face than admit when you’re wrong
Say something of substance, be honest, don’t live life in fear
Watcha gonna do? Everyone’s counting on you
I wanna stand for something real
Say something of substance, be honest and shed old ideals
You’d rather run away than to face it head on
Rather hide your face than admit when you’re wrong
Say something of substance, be honest, don’t live life in fear
It’s funny how things never change
Sometimes it’s just best when I bleed
Track Name: Life On The Bottom
I’m digging myself out of this pile of broken bones
Spent my life on the bottom, surrounded by my own
And I’m so sick
You left me in silence, so I yell until it hurts
And I’ll force you to listen; my words will be your curse
Waiting on life, broken and bruised
This is it, taking hits, if I need to
Make my own way, that’s what I’ll do
Taking hits, tasting blood yeah, I spilled my guts for you
I’m draining myself out
You do what you can to survive
One day I’ll forget the taste of your lips and I
I’ll drop you like a ton of bricks, I’ll drop you like a ton of bricks
Waiting on life, broken and bruised
This is it, taking hits, if I need to
Make my own way, that’s what I’ll do
Taking hits, tasting blood yeah, I spilled my guts
You want a war, but I can’t have you pulling me down
Can’t lose control, that’s how I got to where I am now
Can we move on? I’m sick of always waiting on life
So I’ll make my own way, that’s what I’ll do
So sick of always waiting on life
Waiting on life, broken and bruised
This is it, taking hits, if I need to
Make my own way, that’s what I’ll do
Taking hits, tasting blood yeah, I spilled my guts
I’ll drop you like a ton of bricks, I’ll drop you like a ton of bricks
Track Name: Revolutions Executions
I think I figured it out
See I can’t stay singing all the same things
It means more than that to me
It’s not a revolution, it’s an execution
And it’s common courtesy
I won’t fade out, rather burn it down
Take risks, talk’s cheap and you’re broke as Hell
Guess it’s up to my lungs, yeah, guess it’s up to my tongue to spit it out
C’mon
In these times you wanna
Step back, relax
Just breathe, don’t react
The worst thing you could ever do is let them get the best of you
Step back, relax, just breathe and don’t hold back
Find what matters most to you, stay the course and fight
I think I figured it out
And I won’t wait
Staying in the same place when I know where I should be
Part of a solution, this is retribution for the shit you fed to me
Cause I found myself and I lived to tell
Rise up, move on and you give em’ Hell
Guess it’s up to my lungs, yeah, guess it’s up to my tongue to spit it out
Step back, relax
Just breathe, don’t react
The worst thing you could ever do is let them get the best of you
Step back, relax, just breathe and don’t hold back
Find what matters most to you, stay the course and fight
I think I figured it out
I think it’s time we find a way of curing this disorder
You’re a disease and I’ve got the answer (Transplant a spine)
Incise, all before I put you under
Patch up your knees and dig out the cancer
Step back, relax
Just breathe, don’t react
The worst thing you could ever do is let them get the best of you
Step back, relax, just breathe and don’t hold back
Find what matters most to you, stay the course and fight
I think I figured it out
Track Name: No Filter
I’ll be at home when you’re hearing this
I might be alone but I’m over it
So much to say with no time to waste
My only regret: it’s not to your face
You ended it strangely without a word said
Never replied, never had a chance
For every night I slept myself sick wondering what I did
This is goodbye; I hope you fucking choke on it
You know I thought we had it all
What was it really about?
You keep building your walls
Tell me who’s missing you now?
Who’s missing you now?
Should I be surprised? Angry? Upset?
There’s always another girl to regret
I could just fall right off the deep end
Drowning myself in all this drinking
But I’m in control; I’m in a good place
Trying hard to erase memories of your taste
All your favorite songs were never that good
Wishing somehow I could take it all back and turn that goddamn radio off
You know I thought we had it all
What was it really about?
You keep building your walls
Tell me who’s missing you now?
Who’s missing you now?
Nobody’s missing you now
I slept myself sick every night but I’m over it
You crave acceptance from strangers through pictures and filters
Attention from people who don’t know you
And now that it’s over, how many will be there to pick you back up?
Cause I see right through, I see right through
I know the real you, I see right through
You know I thought we had it all
What was it really about?
You keep building your walls
Tell me who’s missing you now?
Nobody’s missing you now
I slept myself sick every night but I’m over it
Track Name: Blasphemy, Myself and I
In Ohio there’s a fire that burnt my summer bones
Hiding out beyond the tree lines
We’d sit for hours and watch them glow
Murder seconds in the playground across from Sherwood Park
Smoke ourselves to the filter and swore we’d split as soon as winter starts
I used to know when I was home. I used to be invincible, so damn sure of everything
When time alone was so few and far between, we held the world
The world just got too heavy for me
Where do I go? I’m so tired of the same roads
I know that it’s home but I can’t take the snow anymore
We had the fall and now it’s lost like everything
Just fell apart right in my arms, I got nothing to lose
We parked our car in the graveyard and drank away our lives
Tonight I’ll tear down the headstones we hid behind, one at a time
I used to know when I was home. I used to be invincible, so damn sure of everything
When time alone was so few and far between, we held the world
The world just got too heavy for me
Where do I go? I’m so tired of the same roads
I know that it’s home but I can’t take the snow anymore
We had the fall and now it’s lost like everything
Where do I go? I’m so sick of the same roads
I know that it’s home but I can’t fake a smile anymore
We had the fall and now it’s lost like everything
Just fell apart right in my arms, I got nothing to lose
So impertinent when you look at it and I shouldn’t act
Like it’s all so tough, or it’s just too much
And I’ll toast to luck if this is as bad as it gets
Cause I got nothing to lose
Where do I go? I’m so tired of the same roads
I know that it’s home but I can’t fight the cold anymore
We had the fall and now it’s lost like everything
Where do I go? I’m so sick of the same roads
I know that it’s home but I can’t take the snow anymore
We had the fall and now it’s lost like everything
Just fell apart right in my arms, I got nothing to lose

We had the fall and now it’s lost like everything
Where do I go? I’m so sick of the same roads
I know that it’s home but I can’t take the snow anymore
We had the fall and now it’s lost like everything
Just fell apart right in my arms, I got nothing to lose
Track Name: Keep Your Head
Crash into me and have your way, cause I’m not strong enough now
I’m just sand in your wake, quickly washed away
And I still try to hold my head up
Nights can be as cold as your touch
Giving up, I’m giving up
I keep running, running but the tide keeps on coming
I’ve been caught in your undertow, it’s pulling my faster
I’m sinking, taking you in my lungs, it’s pulling me under
Your love’s like the ocean, the waves might hit
And slip through my hands when I reach for it
I’ve been caught in your undertow
Keep your head up (you keep pulling me under)
Track Name: Sitter
These days I’m a hit and run, left the scene as I coughed up blood
Stayed inside, hid from the sun. All jammed up like a loaded gun
Even the nightlife’s just too bright, so I never step outside
Blackened lungs and bloodshot eyes keep me up but not alive
Just holding on
There’s a lesson here but I’m not catching on
Cause the taste of it still lingers on my tongue
Such a bitter ending taste of what’s become
The only drug I didn’t love
Breathe deep leave ground, can’t get to sleep so I just pass out
Fight the words before they leave my mouth
Bite the tongue, but I just can’t tell if it’s too late to save myself
Hit the ground but the bottom dropped out
Lost and found my way around
It’s not new to me; yeah I’m used to it by now
There’s a lesson here but I’m not catching on
Cause the taste of it still lingers on my tongue
Such a bitter ending taste of what’s become
The only drug I didn’t love
Looking for a way, an out
Release, somehow
You’re lost and now it’s pulling me under
We’re all allowed our ups and downs in times of doubt
We all go through it just holding on
(These days I’m a hit and run)
There’s a lesson here but I’m not catching on
Cause the taste of it still lingers on my tongue
Such a bitter ending taste of what’s become
The only drug I didn’t love
Track Name: Old Friend
Old friend, it’s so good to see you again
Through distance and times worse for wear, we carved out the stories we share
(Oh, how the time goes by)
All this time not knowing where we’re going, where we’ll be
You have been a constant source of trust and sanity
Old friend, so happy to see you again
Even when days turn to years, here’s hoping you’ll always be here
Always be here
As time takes hold, we live, let go
We stand, we fall, we heal, we grow
Remember the time spent, we all go through changes
Like seasons I cycle right back into you
Old friend, it’s so good to see you again
The shots and the chasers and cheers
The laughter, the fights and the tears
(Oh how the time goes by)
Old friend, so happy to see you again
No matter when days turn to years, I know that you’ll always be there
Always be there
