Track Name: Old Fingers
I never said that I wanted a thing
I never said that I wanted a thing
But everything you asked of me
I never said no to anything

Now everyone advises
I should be taking their advice
'Cause everything you asked of me
I never said no to anything

And every night I'm a giant mess
We all know that you can't come home
To a giant mess
So pick the scabs off all your wounds
Until you find the one that's me
My brittle bones have seen me through
21 turns to 22
Track Name: Cataract
I can't see you
But I know that there's something there
I was always there for you
I was always there just hoping for someone
To love me
But now my vision is gone
And I no longer trust myself
So stitch me up
And point me to somewhere familiar

And the world
Came closing in on me
And now my family is gone
And I no longer feel the need
To fight for my life
This life lacking sight
If there's nothing more up there
There's nothing left to see here
So I'll just stumble around
Until it's my time
Track Name: Rude
You cleared the room
With every word
You said to me
Now I'm all alone
So far from home
Can't even breathe

Is this the end
Remaining friends
I never saw this coming
I never thought
I'd fall this hard
Stay quiet
They're coming
Track Name: Beige
As time goes on
I feel the grey hairs coming in
And when there's nothing left to say
I'll be the first one to be laughing
The first one to feel happy
The first one to feel sane
And when there's no room left to breathe
I'll feel the dirt beneath my feet

Every night is a nightmare
Waking up screaming
I can't remember anything
Every day I feel helpless
There's nothing more than this bed for me
Forever caught within these sheets
Track Name: Dead Weight
Will I wake before the dawn?
I kinda feel like I should sleep
We've fallen head first
In the wrong direction
And I can't help it

Running faster than my mind
I never thought that I could sleep
In a world of confusion
I won't make it out alive

Since day one
This was the hardest thing to swallow
Your words are in my mouth
But they won't seem to make it down my throat
All my friends may think I'm crazy
But there's just one more little fact
Bullshit that is wrapped in gold
Is something that is never bought
Track Name: House Call
Doctor! Doctor! Doctor!
Can you help me?
I'm in pain
I've seen the kind of miracles
You're working everyday
But I'm not sure if I'm worthy
Of being the one who is saved
But here is not the place for me
There's other sick kids anyway
Home is not the same
It lacks the smell of rain
I'm trying to accept the facts
And bottle up the shame
But for someone else
To take my place
I shouldn't have to say
Life is what you make of it
We're living all the same

Time heals all wounds
Track Name: Chill
Every night I take the long way home
It's cold
I can no longer feel my finger tips
Just slowly dying skin
On my way back
There's a voice who says
Nobody is dying here tonight
Give me some time to myself
Give me some room to breathe
This place wasn't made for us
It's time we finally leave
Last night you took the long way home
Was it cold?
Was it fucking cold?
Track Name: Plantain
And now that I'm older
I can face the ground
I'm choking on the worms and soil
The ones that lay beneath our yard
And what if I can't fix this problem anymore
I should've never lost that key
The key to open up the door

And now that I'm older
I'm in the ground
I've been choking on the worms and soil
For way too fucking long
Track Name: Retracted Statement
Track Name: Trapped in a Place That You Don't Want To Leave
Embracing the nightmare
I've lost hope for myself waking up
Is this something that I will have?
The nothing
Another defeat
The nothing
