Track Name: Anxiety
never mind what’s been said
spoken truth can’t beat the
whispered lies inside the head
shame will backslide into dread
so savor this
an old friend in a time of need
for it to grow it needs to feed
welcome back anxiety
knock the wind out of the sails
work the steps and wind up
in the same place without fail
it’s a short ride back to hell
remember this
Track Name: Miles
damn it if I didn’t see
the mountain of red flags you bring
patched into your personality
there’s no way
they could have known
the extraordinary lengths you’d go
to drag them into your reality
incremental ecstacies
tempered with small agonies
so many manic ways
to break monotony
charming to the bitter end
better enemy, best friend
stab the back to test
the blade again
racing to the bottom just because
surprised to find the finish line’s much farther than
you thought it was
no one there to greet you
with applause
no need to explain it ‘cause it’s
clear as day to everyone
Track Name: Lost
catching up with you
drives me insane
always wanting to
bring up the past
and every now and then
we end up playing this game
sitting here going nowhere fast
i never wanted to be lost with you
i only wanted to be found.
chasing dragons alone
with nothing left to gain
it’s a wonder that it can last
days of charades
won’t quell the rain
sitting here goin nowhere fast
don’t turn away
turn away and fade away
from your malaise
don’t turn away
Track Name: The End is Nigh
try and try to
hit the hard reset
never seem to get
returned to zero now
obselescence planned out
from the start
the wheels are coming
off the cart
and the smoke is on the rise
bad decisions make
the world go round
just doing my part to help out
let’s celebrate
when it comes down
the end is nigh
security in numbers is a scam
for bettor liars betterment
what they don’t own
yet they can’t buy
a thousand paper cuts
to bleed to death
plastic stuffed into the gaps
insecure and magnetized
Track Name: Drive (live)
why are we still fighting?
i thought we sorted this out long ago.
and I’d swear that you’re still lying.
though to what end I know I’ll never know.
and I’ve tried for ever oh so long
to calmly keep the peace inside my head.
and you know I love you. but you know I’d love to
drive out of this town. no one here but you to keep me down.
drive out of this town. there’s no escaping from here now.
i think I got the cancer.
you must have passed it to me from your lips.
and everyone’s got answers.
i hope that mine suffice to pass the test.
Track Name: Ragged (live)
Some happy pills, like magic beans,
swallowed by the fistful
from the pocket of your jeans.
So lock the door and hit the town
good luck self-medicating
those sharp corners off your frown.
A little insight from what I’ve seen,
you’re looking ragged at the seams.
A straight connection from A to B -
A self-fullling prophecy.
Outlast the thrills, outspend the green,
living fast and dying young
don’t work if it’s a scheme.
Down on the floor, regrets abound,
the devil won’t collect if what you want is to cash out.
