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

The Real 02:37
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

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

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

No Filter 02:54
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

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

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)

Sitter 02:25
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

Old Friend 02:33
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
