Give Up 03:30
Well I've been staying up all night Just trying to figure out why you do this to yourself And my sympathy runs dry because you do this all the time And you'd think you'd know by know To just give up and stop trying They're lying to your face And i'm sick and tired of all your crying They're never going to change So why do you keep walking down this long road to disaster? It's not worth it and you're only getting used How much rejection can you possibly put up with? You seem to like the way they treat you, like the dirt beneath their shoes And I've been watching from the side and I'll never figure out The point of torturing yourself And I see it in your eyes and I know that there's no doubt That you're aware of it all now So just give up and stop trying They're lying to your face And i'm sick and tired of all your crying They're never going to change So why do you keep walking down this long road to disaster? It's not worth it and you're only getting used How much rejection can you possibly put up with? You seem to like the way they treat you, like the dirt beneath their shoes (Dirt beneath their shoes) So quit playing the victim Because I'm tired of your games Quit playing the victim You've only got yourself to blame

Scars 02:13
Trying hard to figure you out You never let your guard down Because I've been down that road before And I know that you have too And I was haunted by the way that things turned out And I don't want the same from you You kept us from knowing The secrets about yourself Keep your secrets close, locking them away Tucked in the back of your mind Like an old dusty notebook you keep like a diary Hidden for no one to find That theres pages ripped out and discolored with age (Are you hearing me? Are you hearing me?) The binding is weathered and torn (Are you hearing me? Are you hearing me?) And the truth is that it looks a lot like mine (Are you hearing me? Are you hearing me?) You should know you've been through it before (Are you hearing me? Are you hearing me?) Can you hear me? Are you listening? Here's to all of you that left scars on me

Take It In 04:19
I'm calling out from beneath my doubts So help me out I'm sinking deeper and deeper, deeper and deeper I can't keep avoiding all these issues because I'm getting overwhelmed From transferring, getting no sleep, to my bank accounts always declining And everyone else is moving while I'm trying to switch gears It seems that everyone has got a plan and I'm still stuck here The pounding of the drum beat of my heart My vocal cords like the strings on my guitar And this mic that makes my voice ring out The only thing I care about I'm just trying to make sense of all of this This thing called life that keeps knocking me down And I just want to make sure I've got my head on straight When opportunity presents itself So help me out Another year goes by and what have I to show? A piece of paper drifting in the wind, tell me which way to go The needle on my compass is spinning circles around my head Desires change like autumn leaves and motivation is tucked beneath my bed I'm just trying to make sense of all of this This thing called life that keeps knocking me down And I just want to make sure I've got my head on straight When opportunity presents itself Take it all in I'm just trying to make sense of all of this I'm just trying to make sense of all of this

Decisions 03:47
Reflectors between yellow lines light up to guide me home And as the rubber turns, the silence fills the air like a cloud of smoke Suffocating me and I can't help but choke On all these memories that never let me sleep They creep into my head, possess my thoughts, and haunt my dreams Insomnia it seems has got its hold on me And i just can't get away And it slowly tortures me I'm stuck in this place between do it and don't I've got my reasons to try and I've got my reasons I won't Just make it all go away, or can we got back in time? Every night I fall asleep with these ideas on my mind Fucked up visions in my head Can't wait until I see you again Looking forward to that day When I take your breath away (I'm stuck in this place) Do you see the damage that you've done? (On my mind) I hope you're happy now I hope you're happy, happy now (On my mind) Do you see the damage that you've done? (On my mind) I hope you're happy now I hope you're happy, happy now
5.
I can't be left here all alone, I'm not the only one You'd think somebody would show up I thought it too Someone to fight for one more day When will this be done? The days turn into nights and I regret everything Every day looking over my shoulder and I thank god for nothing I thank god for nothing Beneath my skin my body screams Countless cracks and spaces in between Synoptic flashes in my head Signals running through a tangled web of interlocking threads All of our messages they're drifting in a sea of endless waves I'm lost in translation It seems I'll sink and drown inside this place Somebody save me I want to know i want to know
