Track Name: 2 Days
Tie me down with ropes cuz I can't stay in one place for more than two days, my wheels start to spin in place.

Stitch me up with thread, I'm coming apart at the seams and now it seems you're getting tired of this side of me.

Well, so am I.

Let me off the phone so I can sit at home alone and watch TV, and complain that nothing is inspiring me.

From now on I'll just pretend I'm listening when you tell me I don't take anything seriously.
From now on I'll just pretend I'm listening till there's nothing in my way. Till there's nothing in my way.

Tie me down with ropes cuz I can't stay in one place for more than two days.
Track Name: Impossible To Place
My spirit floated with the wind through the valley desert air.
I saw you in a wedding dress with long dirty blonde hair.

Now I know what they mean when they say some feelings are impossible to place.

I rest my head on to your legs with a thousand things to say,
but silence shoots up all around and it sends me on my way.

Now I know what they mean when they say some feelings are impossible to place.

Stay, stay around me
For the evening
You don't have to be alone.
Stay, stay around me
For the evening
I can't bear to be alone.

Stay around me.
Stay around me.

Stay, stay around me
For the evening
You don't have to be alone.
Stay, stay around me
For the evening
I can't bear to be alone.

When they say some feelings are impossible to place.
Track Name: Save Me From Myself
I took the lid off the poppers,
And I inhaled until I could not see straight.
Fell on my back on the futon,
Oh I know this can't be good for my brain.

They said I'm not on the list now,
I saw my picture with an X over my face.
Just then the sky opened up wide, now I'm dying in my head on the street.

You gotta save me from myself.
Save me from myself.
Save me from myself.
You gotta save me from myself.

I'm always thinking of leaving,
Like I can't stand on the ground beneath my feet.
But it's always the same sky
that I can never seem to reach.

Ok so life is amazing,
When everything is secure and nothing shakes.
It's like I'm chilling in heaven,
Aching to fall flat on my face.

You gotta save me from myself.
Save me from myself.
Save me from myself.
You gotta save me from myself.

I'm obsessing again,
I'm turning into my friends,
Please don't let them know.
Woah oh oh
I'm in the corner waiting,
Because I'm boring baby.
Please don't let them know.

You gotta save me from myself.
Save me from myself.
Save me from myself.
You gotta save me from myself.
Track Name: Losing My Mind
These days I've been living with a migraine, apologizing for my mistakes ten times a day, it doesn't feel great.

Try hard like you're working through a grave yard, you've been giving me your everything and I'm afraid I don't know what to take.

And it never seems to matter,
Cuz I never really care.
I've been losing my, losing my,
Losing my mind while I just sit on the bed and stare.

Somehow I never wear myself out, I'm always gonna stay the same. Oh well.

And it never seems to matter,
Cuz you never really care.
I've been losing my, losing my,
Losing my mind while you just sit on the bed and stare.

Are you letting me go?
Are you letting me go?
Cuz baby if you want me come and let me, baby if you want me come and let me know.

And it never seems to matter,
Cuz you never really care.
I've been losing my, losing my,
Losing my mind while you just sit on the bed and stare.

Are you letting me go?
Are you letting me go?
Cuz baby if you want me come and let me, baby if you want me come and let me know.
Oh I gotta know.
Baby if you want me come and let me, baby if you want me come and let me know.

Just let me know.
Just let me know.
Just let me know.
Just let me know.
Track Name: Hooray For Me
My phone fell out my pocket, don't know how I caught it, I'm trying not to wake her up. She's got a long day at work ahead while I skip around the neighborhood alone.

Now I'm walking in my new shoes, pondering a haircut.
I know she doesn't like it short.
I've got a lot of big decisions that I am never going to make.

Hooray for me!
I got all I need
as long as someone else takes care of me.

Why is life so heavy? Dark clouds form above me, they tell me I should lighten up.
I wanna live better than everyone, I wanna take over the world in my lifetime.

But if I just die...
That would be, that would be, that would be, that would be, that would be, that would be
just fine, JUST FINE.

Hooray for me!
I got all I need
as long as someone else takes care of me.
As long as someone else
takes care of me.

By my own design
I build my house to crumble.
I don't need the privacy.

Hooray for me!
I got all I need
as long as someone else takes care
Hooray for me!
I got all I need
as long as someone else takes care of me.
As long as someone else
As long as someone else
As long as someone else
takes care of me.

Track Name: Living In Hell
All the time that I waste thinking only of myself, worrying about money, worrying if I'm safe.
The music in my headphones takes me to a place where nobody is telling me that I'm just in the way.

But I don't wanna die alone.
I don't wanna die at all.

If someone cared as much for me as you do for me now,
Maybe we would have never met and I would still be living in hell.

As you let down your hair all that I could do was stare. You asked if anything was wrong as your fingers grazed my arm.

But I don't wanna die alone.
I don't wanna die at all.

If someone cared as much for me as you do for me now,
Maybe we would have never met and I would still be living in hell.
I would still be living in...

Texting with the weirdos,
Trapped inside my phone
Cuz I don't, cuz I don't,
Cuz I don't have anyone.
Worried if I'm missin'
anyone worth kissin'
OH MOM I'M GONNA DIE ALONE.

If someone cared as much for me as you do for me now,
Maybe we would have never met and I would still be living in hell.
I would still be living in hell.
Track Name: No Bad Memories
Was it all my fault or just a little bit? Did I let all my friends down again? Are they waiting for me to say something?
But it can't me, no not this time, I'm gonna carry on, I'm gonna dry my eyes. I'm saving myself and I'm not sorry.

It's a bad memory, when I close my eyes it's the only thing I see.
Hold on to me like a parasite or an endless fever dream.

Was it happenstance? Was it meant to be? Is there something you're not telling me? Cuz I'm waiting for you to say something.
And I'm fading fast into the sunset.

It's a bad memory, when I close my eyes it's the only thing I see.
Hold on to me like a parasite or an endless fever dream.
Bad memory, when I close my eyes it's the only thing I see.
Hold on to me like a parasite or an endless fever dream.

Bad memory, when I close my eyes it's the only thing I see.
Hold on to me like a parasite or an endless fever dream.
Bad memory, when I close my eyes it's the only thing I see.
Hold on to me like a parasite or an endless fever dream.
Track Name: Crashing Waves
The cars passing by outside sound like crashing waves, and in a vaguely calming way it kind of made me want to stay.

But the moment passed and quickly I was on my way, my backpack weighs heavily cuz I can't stop collecting memories.

I just stop by to show you I'm alive.
I am ready to leave as soon as I arrive.

The running car in the driveway rattles like a thunderstorm, you told me when it rains it pours. You barely recognize me anymore.

And I don't know how I could possibly reply, cuz I cannot change no matter how hard I try.

I just stop by to show you I'm alive.
I am ready to leave as soon as I arrive.

Arrive.

I just stop by to show you I'm alive.
I am ready to leave as soon as I arrive.
Track Name: I See Failure
When I look into the future I see failure, and fear and death and endless tragedy.

When you look ahead, tell me, what do you see? Is it still something involving you and me?

Or did I stay too long in your arms and the safety of your touch? Have I lost the will to fight these devils off?
Did I stay too long in your arms sheltered from the storm? Am I too detached from what you saved me from?

When I look to the night sky I see darkness, with well-lit interruptions in between.

When you look above, tell me, what do you see? Is there a heaven in the sky for you and me?

Or did I stay too long in your arms and the safety of your touch? Have I lost the will to fight these devils off?
Did I stay too long in your arms sheltered from the storm? Am I too detached from what you saved me from?

When I get upset
when you try to help,
when I pretend I'm not feeling well so I don't have to hang with your friends
in a crowded bar of idiots.
When I ask you what you really think and I freak out about everything.
When you try your best to clear my head but I sink a mile under the bed.

Is it all my fault or just most of it? My potential turns to worthlessness and you reach to pull me out of it but the weight just starts to suck you in. You say "it can't be me, no not again. I'll drown in the rain before this storm ends".
All the missteps flash inside my head and I'm wondering, oh...

Did I stay too long in your arms and the safety of your touch? Have I lost the will to fight these devils off?
Did I stay too long in your arms sheltered from the storm? Am I too detached from what you saved me from?

Did I stay too long?
