Track Name: Can't Think Straight
His tongue is weak
Stumbling over misguided words
And his mind frantic
Struggling to choose between two things that both turn out
Wrong were all the times when he lacked the confidence to go beyond his peak
Hand clutching tight to a note in his pocket
As he prepares for critiques

Oh it's hard to speak

What have I got myself into this time?
I don't want to try so hard just to fall

Stranded outside
a group who's blind
and fails to realize
this sight for sore eyes

How can reflection help when your internal mirrors broke?

He never learned how to see himself as more than a joke
bogged down with matters that never mattered to most
Tired, tired of everything that hurts
Of being bogged down with matters that never mattered
I guess that I'll never grow
Track Name: J.Z.
And my regrets are all just lies
that anchor me down and keep me awake with these thoughts
the night will get me through my shame
It helps me almost forget my crime

Time moves so slowly but the years pass
to build oneself upon one’s cracks is a profound ability
But what have I accomplished?

So cast me to the sea
It’s where I want to be
A distant memory
just like your greatest dream
I’ll sink down way deep
where no one can see
and then I’ll find my peace

(And can it be traced back to a boy with the world in his hands?)

sat in the cold wishing I'd understand the unknown
What compels one to leave behind all that they've known?
and can it be traced back to a boy with the world in his hands?

Questions were all I had left
in my possession I clutch to my chest
just like indecision
I'm longing for a sense of direction


You cast me out
Each word you said was tidal wave
That just helped me drown

(Please just cast me out)

I wonder now
Whatever it is you're doing
And if you think about
The weight of your choices

(You can watch me drown)

You cast me out
Years spent asking myself questions
Trying to figure out there were no answers

(Please just cast me out)

So ask me now
If I remember you
And if I learned to tell myself that it's okay

(You can watch me drown)

That you cast me out
You never turned your head
You never saw me drown

You cast me out
I kept on choking on bubbles that I called my self doubts

You cast me out
You never turned your head
You never saw me drown

You cast me out
I kept on choking on bubbles
That I call myself doubts
Cause you were never around

You cast me out
Track Name: ...or Whatever
I brought all I had to the table
but I still can't seem to get this right
4 songs in and I think this might be good enough
Of a leap to help get my feet up off the ground

And let me forget

Let me learn to phase these thoughts out of my mind
It's getting better in time and I
I guess that's fine

2 years and the comments build up
Closer, but still far out of reach
These days I seem to be stuck on
The question of how to feel complete

Try harder

Let me learn to phase these thoughts out of my mind
It's getting better in time and I
I guess that's fine

Sometimes I sit and think about how far
I could throw the things we've done
and if they'd matter to anyone, or whatever

I'll just learn to phase these thoughts out of my mind
I'm getting better in time
And I guess I'm alright

I'll just try so much harder to be..
..throw myself against the wall..
..a little bit smarter..
Track Name: How It Feels
I don't mind being alone
I just consider it best when the clouds start to form
I'll wait outside and watch the sun explode
And I'd wonder if I could feel as warm
but I envision this fog where I can't find my way home
I think it means I'm afraid to lose control

Oh why can't I ever seem to shake these thoughts
That I'm just paint dripping down these walls

Oh how can I hope to keep this all inside my mind
when I struggle with a barrage of thoughts and lies
To keep myself in line

Sit down , clear your head
I'm sorry I hate it when I get like this

when it gets to be too much
but I just fall back into these old
layers of skin so bruised they used to cushion all my falls
And heal my wounds that I can't see

Sit down, clear your head
I'm sorry I hate it when I get like this
Track Name: to Let Go
I'm trying to be everything I'm not
