Track Name: Paper Hearts
We climbed the highest trees
And watched the world below.
We hung our paper hearts
With rope and sorrow.
The ghost of who I was
Still haunts this aching brain.
This empty feeling's
Getting hard for me to explain.

The burden of the promises
I never learned how to keep
Makes me feel like the
Ground will quake beneath my feet.
I disintegrate
Before I get the nerve to call
cause I'm too scared to hear
A voice ring through these
empty halls.

Well this is looking like the end.
I'm saying bye to all the friends
Who have ever had a care for me.
If I'm going up in smoke,
I'm making sure that I'm
Proud of every chance I took.

The burden of the future
Always sends a chill down my spine.
I'm driving down a dead end road,
Ignoring caution signs.
Rip out my epilogue.
My future's still not guaranteed.
Just throw all the ashes of my
Confidence into the sea.
Track Name: Milhouse's Guide to Keeping it Cool
I'm a mess
And I know that I wont be
Anything more than this.
"Just take deep breaths."
Is all they can tell me
But that just leads to stress.
I'll try hard
To paint on a smile
Just for my parents sake.
Everyone
Seems to know where they're going
but I just can't relate.

Nothing's worse than
Feeling all alone.
I was cursed with
A heart made out of stone
And it drags me down.
Down into this hole
That I dug myself.
Someone send me help.
Track Name: Old Man Yells at Clouds
I spent last night
Writing songs about you.
I spent my summer indoors
Watching days just pass me by.
And I know that it's sad
But it's hard for me to understand
That I just need to do
Whatever it is that makes me happy.

Take me back.
Back to when days seemed a little brighter.
Without these black clouds
Stalking every move
I choose to make.
And I know that it's sad
But it's hard for me to understand
That I just need to do
Whatever it is that makes me happy.

I'm knocking down these walls
Hoping to find some closure.
With each brick wall that falls
That feeling creeps a little closer.
And I'm sure
You've heard it all before.
Same complaints.
Just different metaphors.
It's gotten to the point
Where I can't feel happy anymore.

I know that it's sad
But it's hard for me to understand
That I just need to do
Whatever it is that makes me happy.

I'm knocking down these walls
Hoping to find some closure.
With each brick wall that falls
That feeling creeps a little closer.
And I'm sure
You've heard it all before.
Same complaints.
Just different metaphors.
It's gotten to the point
Where I can't feel happy anymore.
Track Name: Neck Deep
Well I know you wont believe
Half of the words I have to say.
But if you'd hear me out tonight
It'll keep my mind at bay
Because I'm running out of time
And I'm here trying to figure out
Just exactly what I want to say
And what to talk about.
Let's talk about the trouble
That I've caused all of my life
Or How I feel like an outcast
Cause I don't believe in Christ.
Or how I'm such a problem
To the ones I hold so close.
All the years that flew by me
left me feeling like a ghost.

So I take deep breaths
when I start to panic.
I'm still neck deep,
Sinking in the Atlantic.
All these long nights
Are becoming a habit
When I just want some sleep.

I'm tired of building walls
That separate my friends from me.
I just wish I had a conscience
With a voice of honesty.
I know I've asked this question
at least a thousand times.
But I'm still waiting for an answer
That should come with your reply.
But all I hear is silence
And it drives me up a wall.
It reminds me that a hero's
Something I don't need at all.
What I needed was a promise that
this hell would pass with time.
Then maybe this would help me
Find some fucking peace of mind.

So I take deep breaths
when I start to panic.
I'm still neck deep,
Sinking in the Atlantic.
All these long nights
Are becoming a habit
When I just want some sleep.
Track Name: Ariel
There's nothing left for me here
Cause you moved on.
There's nothing left for me here
so here's this song
About how you
told me that it's for the best.

You say you love me.
Well is that true?
You say you're honest
But you always stretch the truth.
And It's clear. Your actions
spoke louder than words.

Tell me what you think about
Every night before you go to sleep.
Tell me what you think
When you see my face
Or when you hear me speak.

How can someone love me when
I don't love myself?
My heart's collecting dust
Just sitting on your shelf.
And I still don't know
How to be alone.

There's nothing left
to talk about
And I have nothing more to say.
It's clear to see that you've moved on
And I'm here trying to do the same.
Track Name: There's No "I" In Team
Please believe that
I'm trying to be strong.
I know how it seems
When I'm singing these songs.
But my emotions just
Get the best of me.
I feel like I'm floating on
this dark and empty sea alone.

I can't believe
That this happened to me.
White noise stuck in my head
When I just wanted harmony.
But I guess
It doesn't come that easily.
Happiness doesn't come that easily.

Everyday, I
Tell myself that everything's okay.
But when I asked
For sunshine, all I got was rain.
It's pathetic
The way I tremble when things
Get out of hand.
Have you noticed
How my head is always
Buried in the sand?

It's always raining
in the sunshine state.
I want to stay
But that would be a huge mistake.
I take back
Everything I said before.
Everything I've ever said
Is just broken glass
Scattered on the floor.
Track Name: Everything's Going to be Fine
I'm cool and calm like the ocean,
And Im safe unless the monsoon comes.
I know that you wouldn't let it.
You know about the nights I've come across.
I love when you smile.
And when your hands run through my hair.
But I've been feeling alone.
Tell me that you'll always be right here.

Just give me a reason
To stay strong until the morning.
You know that I need you.
You keep me calm when I start to worry.
And I know that it seems
Like I've been drifting off into nothing,
But stay with me please?
At least until the morning.

Please tell me you'll stay
And tell me everything's alright.
I've been rotting away.
My future doesn't seem so bright.
I took their advice.
I've been counting every breath.
And after tonight
You're all that I have left.
So please say you'll stay.

The future fills me with panic.
I'm worried that I'll be a disappointment.
You know that I can't
Stay still for just a moment.
I love when you laugh
And when your hands run through my hair.
But I've been feeling alone.
Tell me that you'll always be right here.

Please tell me you'll stay
And tell me everything's alright.
I've been rotting away.
My future doesn't seem so bright.
I took their advice.
I've been counting every breath.
And after tonight
You're all that I have left.
So please say you'll stay.

My world is ending.
Cracking underneath my feet.
My heart is made of stone
Carved out of cold concrete.
I've been pacing back and forth.
I need to find some sleep.
I can't believe that I made it
pass these last few weeks.
This troubled feeling just keeps
coursing through my blood.
The end is bittersweet.
I can taste it on my tongue.
If I could just find the hope
That I had when I was young,
I know ill find a way
To kill what I've become.
