Here we go again Charging head first into opposing wind With nowhere to run to At our lowest when we all fall who's there to catch us, to bear it all Late night chasing tail lights waiting for inspiration to strike Any indication that things will be alright At our lowest when we all fall who's there to catch us, to bear it all I'll be here waiting for you to call It's never too late, we'll carry on

Wit's End 01:59
Standing at my wit’s end, nodding in reply Searching for the correlation between what was said and what you’re driving at We’re sick to death of your clever tropes You’re half as interesting as your tired jokes I never thought I’d have to say this I never thought I’d have to say this As many times, as you heard you’re wrong You never stop to think that you cause the problems you’re trying to solve It’s useless I’m done spinning my wheels It’s time to pack up and move on, there’s nothing left to salvage here I never thought I’d have to say this I never thought I’d have to say this

Never Worse 03:40
I’m a freight train Expecting the rail to bend to me Willing the ties to break Longing for the ballast to wash away Worthless effigy Better crumbling I wish I felt better But I've never felt worse Always hoping for the positive and thinking I’m cursed Outside I’m fine, but inside I’m dying Faking it, rotting from the inside out Clinging to the narrative drowning in doubt Outside I’m fine, but inside I’m dying How can I ask you To tell me what you need When I’m not even capable of Processing my own feelings My punishment for all of this Is knowing every night When I close my eyes to get some rest I’ll toss and turn knowing that you’re right Worthless effigy Better crumbling I wish I felt better But I've never felt worse Always hoping for the positive and thinking I’m cursed Outside I’m fine, but inside I’m dying Faking it, rotting from the inside out Clinging to the narrative drowning in doubt Outside I’m fine, but inside I’m dying

Night sweats on the middle bench seat So much Pabst I can barely see Staggering around palm tree lined streets 8AM and eighty degrees Rolling in on life support Third coffee on a two hour drive Lungs full of death and secondhand smoke Not sure all five of us will survive Forty more beers and three more shows Eighty bands down only twenty to go Everyone in Gainesville looks like someone I know Terry’s posted up at Fest wrestling Norm's looking for a set to smash Bobby’s wandering around Bo Diddley Dan's looking for a place to crash Rolling in on life support Third coffee on a two hour drive Lungs full of death and secondhand smoke Not sure all five of us will survive Forty more beers and three more shows Eighty bands down only twenty to go Everyone in Gainesville looks like someone I know Night sweats on the middle bench seat So much Pabst I can barely see Staggering around palm tree lined streets 8AM and eighty degrees Forty more beers and three more shows Eighty bands down only twenty to go Everyone in Gainesville looks like someone I know

Have wildfires, burning forests changed your day to day Poverty anxiety what’s it mean to me Do human rights and distant fights affect my bottom line And from their towers they wield the power but not for you and me The world is shaking has its breaking brought you to your knees But can you hear that voice it’s screaming to break free We’re all bursting at the seams To breathe new life into a dead dead world We’re breaking out, we’re breaking out We’re breaking out from your control Tired orders hateful borders to separate our lives Once a friend but now a foe can't you hear the lies Now it’s profits over planet they can’t see past today Did the bomb that hit your village say “made in the USA" The world is shaking has its breaking brought you to your knees But can you hear that voice it’s screaming to break free We’re all bursting at the seams To breathe new life into a dead dead world We’re breaking out, we’re breaking out We’re breaking out from your control

Perspective 03:06
The man I am now, not the boy that I was then I’ve caused as much distrust as I have made amends The hard work comes when it’s time to forgive yourself and separate My life is perspective It’s been changing over time As I age, I wonder How much do I have left When will time catch up with me Keep my body in a state of disrepair Watch me lose my graying matted hair Circles under my eyes, a version of a man I hoped I’d be eventually My life is perspective It’s been changing over time As I age, I wonder How much do I have left When will time catch up with me
7.
A thoughtful mind walks away from this life Leaving all the pain and strife Inherent human nature strives To live for good but everybody dies It leaves me thinking every time Why this common bond doesn’t unify To push apart with a wedge between Like an impassive ghost to never intervene We’ve got our whole short lives To get ready to die But when we look back We want to know that We left our marks behind All those years back when we were just kids We could never understand what the adults did To learn about war and all those people who had died was enough to make us want to run and hide Now we’re grown up and it’s the same But in this life you’ve gotta seize the reins To end the violence and suffering Like an old departed friend once said to me We’ve got our whole short lives To get ready to die But when we look back We want to know that We left our marks behind

Defeated 02:34
Been chewing on glass all night Working on turning it back to sand Grinding my teeth, still at it for weeks Falling forward in time I look defeated I must have nothing to look forward to Sitting waiting disappointed Just like you Spent my whole life up to this point Trying to drown everything out Spent my days waiting for night So I could rinse, repeat I look defeated I must have nothing to look forward to Sitting waiting disappointed Just like you

Dreamer 02:42
You've been wearing lots of blues and grays Why don't you come out and say it I've been absent, distracted, neglectful and distant I had a life that fulfilled me but now it just drags me down I'll never chase another dream ever I can't, I won't I'll never chase another dream ever This one last time I'm done I'll never chase another dream ever OK once more, I'm through I'll never chase another dream ever This rat race gets exhausting And introspection seems hardly worth it I've spent most of my life wasted on fruitless endeavours But I wouldn't have it any other way I'll never chase another dream ever I can't, I won't I'll never chase another dream ever This one last time I'm done I'll never chase another dream ever OK once more, I'm through I'll never chase another dream ever
10.
Retreat 02:40
Being everything you can to everyone else While trying to be the change you want to see in yourself It’s hard enough to keep on breathing Hold the pieces together, a smile waning You’re at a loss You’re retreating You spend all your nights rethinking All the bad fights All your fuck ups And your shit luck Relief isn’t coming, it’s just out of reach But I’ll chase it down with you on this sunbleached concrete Until the wheels warp and the tires explode Our bodies tossed to the side of the road You’re at a loss You’re retreating You spend all your nights rethinking All the bad fights All your fuck ups And your shit luck

LHDM 03:35
Laundry list of flaws Like I set out to employ them The only time I’m completely honest A mechanism just to shrowd them My garbage mouth My poisoned mind My bloodshot eyes And my crooked tongue Live hard, die slow Live sad, die miserable I was a self-professed useless mess Not aware my life was falling apart In need of a direction a place to refocus This frantic energy inside of me It’s so much easier to be resentful Than to see the other side of the coin It’s so much easier to loathe the sunrise Than appreciate another day to be alive Welcome the warmth on your skin It’s harder to change course than to just sit back Let every week roll over you and still you stay the same Live hard, die slow Live sad, die miserable Sway with me Avoid incoming misery Spend my days Outrunning inevitable Live hard, die slow Live sad, die miserable
