Track Name: I Can't Fix Everything
Every time I try to find another way
Another drunken line
Another fucking thing
I can't fix everything

Swallow back another broken try
Cover for another fucking lie
It's hard to be honest
From one broken promise
To the next, I'm coming back again
And we know that luck is not your friend
Holding me back won't get you any closer to where you want to be
You're just wasting time that I won't get back

Every time I try to find another way
Another drunken line
Another fucking thing
I can't fix everything
Track Name: Slacker
Let me tell you a story; when this shit began
I've got a list of all the reasons
And you know just where to begin
But you know i hate this feeling
And I’m trying not to feel this
But I just can’t take it

All my time is wasted on things that don’t think of me
When you were busy growing up did I just stay the same?
I'll be lifting myself up until I break my back, you’ll never find your way out

I know you’ve never had to work a day in your life
To get anywhere you wanna be
I know you’re not there and you haven’t tried yet
So why the hell would you complain to me
Don’t look now you’re drowning in your sorrow
Try again tomorrow, trying not to follow
Nahh nah nah nah

Live it up because the past comes back
You’ll never get anywhere when you ride the fast track to failure
You’ll get whats coming

How can you tell me how to live my life when yours is going to hell?
Excuses are always just the same

Still telling myself that this is worth it
That all my days mean something to someone
Keep telling myself to do better
But I know you won’t

I know you’ve never had to work a day in your life
To get anywhere you wanna be
I know you’re not there and you haven’t tried yet
So why the hell would you complain to me
Don’t look now you’re drowning in your sorrow
Try again tomorrow trying not to follow
Nahh nah nah nah

I can’t help you
Can't help you if you won’t help yourself

Keep taking your time trying to sort it out
Everything you’ve said has me filled with doubt
Say you’re trying but I know you’re not
Stop stalling look up let it out
Track Name: Where Am I?
Waking up on the couch in a cold sweat
The TV is on because you can’t sleep without it
Look at me, I’m blacking out again
Can never make sense of what I’m doing here

My days are short and my nights seem long
The clocks still ticking i know whats missing
Guess I'll just go and write another song
Can't come back, you won’t come back to me

Looking back and I can't move forward
Looking back, I just need to rest my eyes

I can never catch a break, I’m falling
I won’t go to sleep till four AM
Woke up late and now I’m crawling
All I need is an excuse to sleep in

Alright,
I'm feeling nothing so I have to numb the pain again
Can't seem to think straight so I’m shutting down my brain stem
How does it feel to know that you’re the one who ruined us
How does it make you feel that I can’t sleep I’m fucked up

I can never catch a break, I’m falling
I won’t go to sleep till four AM
Woke up late and now I’m crawling
All I need is an excuse to sleep in

Still can never catch a break I’m falling
Still won’t go to sleep till four AM
Woke up late and now I’m crawling
Now you know why I’m sleeping in

Guess we finally caught a break you left me
Guess I’m fucked enough to sleep so I'll lay down
Woke up late, you’re not with me
Guess I'll fall asleep standing up

I don’t live my life by my glass being half empty or half full
Cause I make sure my glass is empty to drowned out
That I have to do this on my own
Track Name: Same Shit, Different Day
Go

Set me free and watch me go
Now I’m alone
Over it I’m out the door
Out on my own

They say one can be lonely
I know two can be lonely still
For the first time I’m being honest
I've got no one to prove it to

I've got a real bad habit of trying to fix everything
But I won’t fix anything
Don’t say it, Don’t say it
I've got a head full of doubt I can’t take this

Let me down easy I’m trying
But I can’t help your disappointment
This is who I am and I won’t replace it
For any mold that you can try to fit my bones in

Another day, I know I’m wasting my time here
Prove to you that you’ll never get your way again
I'll pack my things
YEAH
I’m fucking leaving town
Never look back on what we didn’t have
Here's to giving up
I'll never get out

Cut me down and I'll cut you right back
Let me down I’m over it

Let me down easy I’m trying
But I can’t help your disappointment
This is who I am and I won’t replace it
For any mold that you can try to fit my bones in

This is it I'll try to come to terms with
All the truth that has me disappointed
This isn't real just an idea of who you really wanted me to be

Let's take it back to all the days when
We lived it out through the cities and years
Can't hold it back again now I’m face to face with
All your struggles and your fears
I know I said I’m done but this time I mean it
I'm never coming back
And now I’m over it
One way ticket to hell, I’m never coming back

Let me down easy I’m trying
But I can’t help your disappointment
This is who I am and I won’t replace it
For any mold that you can try to fit my bones in

This is it I'll try to come to terms with
All the truth that has me disappointed
This isn't real just an idea of who you really wanted me to be

Let me down easy I’m trying
But I can’t help your disappointment
I'll let you down easy cause I won’t
Let you mold me
Track Name: Trouble Maker
Looking back this all got the best of me
We got carried away
We got carried away
Never thought that it could get this bad again
We’re losing ground and I can’t help it
Take a step back and look at the mess that you’ve made
I’m wearing all black it's matching the mood that I’m in
Who would have thought we’d get so far
Who would have thought you’d get so far from me

You’ve got a way of taking things too far but you’ve never had a grip and now we’re falling apart
So go on and tell yourself that you’re still moving along but we know

You’ve got me rolling with the renegades again
i can tell when you’re in my head
You’ve got me rolling with the renegades again
This is no longer in my hands

We’re all living in black
We’re being force-fed this white noise of nothingness
That causes us to believe that everything is okay
Look around and see it; you’re not blind
Ive had enough its time to free your mind
We’ve had enough
Theres nothing left to say
They’ve fed enough for us to eat

You’ve got me rolling with the renegades again
This is no longer in my hands
You’ve got me rolling with the renegades again
This is no longer in my hands

How can you compensate for all the things you take
And all the shit that you constantly give
Where has your conscience gone?
How can you face this all?
Bending and breaking what you don’t deserve

You’ve left me no choice I’m leaving you here
Things I won’t get back I won’t live in fear again
Track Name: The Times That Counted
Walk me down to the wake you’ll never watch me fall
Take whatever you need
I live my life to the break and I can say theres no room for you left in me
Foundations broken and bitter
Forcing caution to shiver
Leaving emptiness, regretful bliss without me so far
You know well be here forever
Stuck in this place forever,
Never letting go, of what we know and how we’ve grown apart

Giving up and I’m never gonna get back
Get you back

If I could break your fall
Then I would
If I could fix my flaws
Then I would

More shots are fired
No stepping stones
Lift me up to fill my bones
Because I give in and you take hold of all my fears when I’m exposed
Wake me up just to watch me fall and say woah
Give it up just to fix it all sing woah

I'm giving up I’m giving up I’m giving it’s over
I'm messing up the good things in my life
I fucked up i’m fucked but I’m alright

If I could break your fall
Then I would
If I could fix your flaws
Then I would

Help me forgive
Bring me back to all
The times that counted and made us what we are
More shots are fired
No stepping stones
Lifting up to fill my bones
Because I give in and you take hold of all my fears when I’m exposed
Wake me up just to watch me fall and say woah
