Track Name: Shattered
Looking in your eyes thinking of how it used to be but it's no surprise your words were lies. Looking at your pictures thinking only of happy times but all of those now are just vague memories.
You can't fix what's not broken, take me to a god damn surgeon. My hearts been shattered because of you. You can't fix what's not broken, take me to a fucking surgeon. My hearts been shattered because of you.
I thought you were the one, more important than the fucking son, but now that you're gone I see that I was wrong. It's all so god damn vivid when you walked out that door, I didn't know what to do, what to live for.
You can't fix what's not broken, take me to a god damn surgeon. My hearts been shattered because of you. You can't fix what's not broken, take me to a fucking surgeon. My hearts been shattered because of you.
Now you've moved on somewhere and you're seeing someone brand new. I guess it's time for me to move on too.
You can't fix what's not broken, take me to a god damn surgeon. My hearts been shattered because of you. You can't fix what's not broken, take me to a fucking surgeon. My hearts been shattered because of you.
Track Name: Fortune Teller
I hope you dream of me
As much as I dream of you.
Every morning I wake up
Wanting to die because
I hope you dream of me
As much as I dream of you.
Every morning I wake up
Wanting to die because
You're not next to me,
Sleeping by my side.
You're not next to me,
Sleeping by my side.
I can't get you out of my head,
And I don't want you to leave.
I can't get you out of my head,
And I don't want you to leave.
Just please stop making me crazy,
I'm already crazy for you.
Just please stop making me crazy,
I'm already crazy for you.
Track Name: Bleu Cheese Over Ranch, Dawg
It’s the way you lie on my bed
Wishing that you were dead
I wish I could feel for you
But I have no empathy
It’s quite the shame you’re to blame
Before I met you I was sane
I can’t say anything out loud
Without my head filling with doubt
Anxiety makes me shiver
All my limbs quiver
Track Name: Fresh Safari Blast
I left Long Island a long time ago, my mom sung along to the radio. The foliage was beautiful that autumn night. Nothing compared to those sights
You strayed away and lost touch, the distance was way too much. I guess that's what friends do. I guess that's what friends do.
Ghosts keep coming up but they're not dragging me down.
I won't let you get the best of me. You'll be the anchor, I'll be the ship, I'll cut the ties with one quick clip.
I came back a few years later, I tried to fit in, belong again. You looked the same, but your views changed. You were hurting everyone you knew.
I realized that I had to run, I was moving forwards, not wanting to stop. I wasn't gonna let you hold me back. I wasn't gonna let you hold me back.
Ghosts keep coming up but they're not dragging me down.
I won't let you get the best of me. You'll be the anchor, I'll be the ship, I'll cut the ties with one quick clip.
Track Name: Stay The Same
You say that I'm always on your mind
But I can't say that you're on mine
I guess it's just a sign
that I should leave
You can't even say my name
But who are you too blame
I know I drive you
Insane
When the world is coming down
Do you think you'll stick around
Can you say yes for certain
I can't handle all this hurting
When the world is coming down
Do you think you'll stick around
Can you say yes for certain
I can't handle all this hurting
Oh I promise that I'll change
If you promise that you'll
Stay the same for me
Oh I promise that I'll change
If you promise that you'll
Stay the same for me
Oh I promise that I'll change
If you promise that you'll
Stay the same for me
Track Name: Milk
I'm a mess and I need help being put back together
I'm a mess and I need help being put back together
I hope I don't disappoint you
If you knock me over don't cry
I hope I don't disappoint you
I can't stand to see you cry
Track Name: You're A Bad Man, Barry
My lighter's out of fluid
And you're no were to be found
I guess I'll be cold forever
And you're not coming back around
And I hope you're happy
Wherever you are
Just know I'm miserable here
Nothing will cover this scar
As the weather gets warmer
I'll fake myself thawing out
The truth is I miss you
But you're gone for good
And I hope you're happy
Wherever you are
Just know I'm miserable here
Nothing will cover this scar
And I hope you're happy
Wherever you are
Just know I'm miserable here
Nothing will cover this scar
Track Name: Drive Away
You say I can’t come over,
But I’m already on my way.
You’re saying that we’re over,
But I want to stay
I just knocked on your door
Please just hear me out
I promise I’ll make everything okay
Just let me in the house
Now you’re talking, saying some lies
But I can say that’s nothing new
I say I love you, and I mean it too
You act completely surprised
You hate me, and that feeling’s past due
I’m not surprised, I saw it coming
You tell me to go, I beg and plead
Then you kick me out of the door
I guess I’ll move on, try and say goodbye
Driving away from the house where I felt at home
Track Name: Untouched
I'll be sitting here at home
While you're traveling the world I'll hope you call and stare at my phone
I'll make you coffee every morning
I'll make you dinner every night
It's not that I want to waste food
I just that I miss you and hope you come home soon
These dates your away keep adding up
Your side of the bed remains untouched
I hope sooner or later you'll come home
It's starting to kill me with all these nights alone
I know you're following your dreams
Well my dream is to share my life with you
I know it's selfish for me to want you for myself
It's unfair though you want to be with everyone else
This is the only time I'm going to complain
It needed to get it off my chest before I went insane
