Track Name: When You're Around
i know that nothing's perfect
and i know because of you
your addiction to attention
man, i can see right through

what did you want me to be
and how was i supposed to know?
my role as tragedy
makes the perfect show

i feel like shit when you're around
i feel so sick when you're around
so why would you leave now?

i am a razorblade
that sinks inside your flesh
i am the lies you tell
that you'll never confess

some nights i hate your guts
some nights i love you again
some nights i pray for you
some nights i wish you dead

i feel so good when you're around
i feel so good when you're around
so please don't leave me now
Track Name: Don't Go
i'll make you a deal
cut your heart like meat
ooze into your soul
then i press repeat

i'll make you a deal
come back to my place
no, i don't love you
your face is just a face

don't go
please stay
i don't know what to do
when you're gone

don't go
please stay
i don't know what to do
when i'm alone

you made me a deal
demented in the eyes
poisoning the air
your tongue full of lies

you made me a deal
you promised you'd stay
if i stopped my destruction
if i found a new way

don't go
please stay
i don't know what to do
when you're gone

don't go
please stay
i don't know what to do
when i'm alone
Track Name: I'll Follow You
first thing is first and it's always the worst
death is a verse when it's written in words
i stand in line counting the time
come closer now, but don't come inside

(hahahaha)

nobody knows where i go in the night
wherever i go it keeps me alive
i wait in the dark like a lit cigarette
burning too close to your lips so you don't forget

i know what i'll do
i'll follow you

i once was a kid in the back of a car
now i'm a drunk stumbling out of a bar
depression comes when nothing else does
i'm not who i am, i'm what i've become

i'd rather give up before i give in
i'm only a friend to balance my sins
thy kingdom come, thy will be done
when the kingdom's done, that's when i'll come

i know what i'll do
i'll follow you

i'll follow you
Track Name: So Many People
so many people tell you
you gotta be somethin
but you're fine bein nothin

i won't step in your box
your cubicle room
your white walls, picture frames,
and birthday balloons
your calendar life, your fear of death,
your nine to five

don't make me fade
don't push me out
just because you're so bored and sick
of yourself

so many people tell you
if you wanna get to the island
better learn to swim

i'd rather drown
and sink away
don't save me then
just let me sink to the bottom
and if i float
just push me down
and let me hide away
where i won't
be found
Track Name: I Won't Help You
you got me making big decisions
to anyone who cares to listen
i'll race the clock to five a.m.
i stop when i can't get the drink to my lips

you say i was abused
well don't you know, i got news for you
but you're not worth the time
and i'm not worth your lies

so find another victim
to burn into yourself
and don't ask for my help
cuz i won't help you

you strangled all of my ambition
while i just sat around listening to your bitching
so i took the life i thought i was missing
now i just sit around listening to my depression

who am i singing to?
is it to her, to me, or to you?
but i'm not worth the time
and if i was you'd be worth none of mine

so find another victim
to burn into yourself
and don't ask for my help
cuz i won't help you
Track Name: Dear Sadness,
you said you only miss me when i'm here
so i promised you i'd never leave
now all i want to do is disappear
sadness, you've been so good to me

my heart beats painfully for you
my heart beats painfully for you

when i was young they asked me what i wanted to be
all i wanted to be was alone
i regret the day i let you in
sadness, you are my only friend

this pain is all for you
this pain is all for you

sadness, don't take my life away
Track Name: I Fell In Love With A Girl
i fell in love with a girl

i'm too sad to sing
i'm too sad to do anything

i know she's leaving me

i fell in love with a girl
Track Name: Build My Shell
once you get close to me, you see
how easy i am to break
and you start to wonder
how long it will take

i could never talk to you
and you didn't care anyway
so i left through the window
now i think i should have stayed

and there was no one to talk to
so i took my life away
now looking back on it
with you i should have stayed

i'm ugly today
and i'll be uglier tonight
with the tongue of a snake
i sink into the night

my mind is dissolving
my body's growing thin
i look out the light house
i'm not one of them

my hands are weak
my heart is a well
every time i try to love
i only build a stronger shell
Track Name: Only Shining Sun
when you first said you love me
was the last time those words were true
i just couldn't feel the same way
you know i'd never lie to you

i hid my guilt in empty bottles
there was no room for right or wrong
and if i slept alone that night
would i be here singing this song?

i really tried to forget her
i really tried to let her go
now i wish i never met her
now i feel so alone

if i set fire to my lips,
will you kiss my darkest poetry?
i'll stab a blade into my wrist
to give you my sincere apology

you don't have to give me ambition
but please take away my depression
it's becoming out of control
like an inward bomb i'm ready to blow

i really tried to forget her
i really tried to let her go
now i wish i never met her
now i feel so alone

learn to swim, my beautiful baby
i won't drown you in my flood
and though i didn't treat you kindly
you're in my soul, you're in my blood

and if i ever leave this place
without telling anyone,
let the stars swallow the moon
you were my only shining sun

you were my only shining sun
Track Name: I'm Alright
silence my voice
all it does is destroy
when your ears are glass
a hammer has no choice

the world's a lonely place
and i'm the only one to blame
so i smile in pain
and fake away another day

i'm alright
yeah, i'm doing fine
i'm one big lie
it hurts so bad inside

but i'm alright
yeah, i feel just fine
i'm one big lie
it's killing me inside

you knew me when
i wasn't quite so desolate
but i've left since then
and i won't come back again

look me in the eyes
what you see you won't like
there's no hope to find
emptiness never lies

i'm alright
yeah, i'm doing fine
i'm one big lie
it hurts so bad inside

but i'm alright
yeah, i feel just fine
i'm one big lie
it's killing me inside
