I won't wait I'm coming straight out of the gate With another tale of my self-hate Here comes my dissection I won't wait I'm coming straight out of the gate To say sorry for my mistakes All result of my brain And my hate For me, myself, and I But I cannot blame it On the times I've fallen 'Cause I know right from wrong I'm ashamed Throw me in a barrel of All the gasoline we pumped Or better yet Send me off to castration For all the lusty shit i've done I want to be a warrior Not a worrier I want to be a warrior Not a worrier I want to be a warrior Not a worrier I want to be a warrior Not a worrier

Industry 02:48
I'm not going out Out without a fight You can play that trendy shit I'm here for life I bleed, I cry I sing it all In these songs But you, you, you, or you You don't even try Please go Back to your old hobbies This music world's too full of jocks Well, that's the industry You tell 'em how hard you've worked Or just how far you got But six months have passed Since you first learned to play guitar If you're the king of underground, Underground's above ground The kind of music made to feel has died 'Cause you're a snide Save it for the internet They're all you've got And you, you You continue to Your two-faced moves I almost feel bad for you But you're just a dude Just move through If you swoon, make room To hear me croon The cool kids rise again This time, with their music But they don't really love this shit They have no bruises You think longevity But just actually You're living in your Indie-Rock Fantasy

Hand 05:17
I won't lay a I won't lay a Hand On my kids On my kids Fuck that I won't live to I won't live to Follow my family's past I grew up And I saw some shit I cannot find a way To forget Yes, to forgive All that I saw Through my friends And my experience Moms and dads don't do this Mom, I love you Dad, you got work to do I love you too With my experience My ex-therapist Said all my problems were stemmed from this event: I was molested Was molested When I was six Guilt and shame Myself to blame No more, I change that all today I've wasted my whole life On phallocentric addiction Now I have really changed I've done away Completely I want to be Everything you thought I was I've wasted my whole life With invisible police of mind Feeling compelled To wash my Hand Or repeat myself 'Til I get it right Thinking itself Is a pain Then, I feel compelled to chase Find out what it means It's the disease Messages misfiring From head to feet I'm suffering Hurting myself Is a way To feel some kind of relief From what I see It don't got nothing To do with neat Try morality It's called this: OCD It don't got nothing To do with neat Try morality It's called this: OCD

Better Man 01:40
What I thought I knew I didn't even know I had to read a book To learn the ropes Of the disease I have I was born with it Now I must learn To manage it These days making music is even a chore for me What with my circuitry I ritualize And repeat Then, the thought to kill myself But on the other hand I'll put in all the work and be a better man

Take my hand, we're not that far along I know we can make this last But hey, where you going now? I don't really want you to go I'll take what I deserve Take my word, it won't be like before I know I made you hurt With "hey what you wearing now? Better not be wearing that shirt" How fucking insecure I validate, it's only the least I can do for you And that's the bare minimum I had fooled you into thinking I was a good guy You deserve so much more than this from me now That's all I want you to know
7.
All the Time 02:50
I never thought I'd make you cry And now I do it all the time I filled you up with lies I wasted your time I betrayed you And act like Nothing happened to you Like it was my right Being a guy Fuck all this "being a guy" shit Fuck all this "use your eyes" It's still a lie I should've known it wasn't right If I had to find ways to lie I fucked up your mind I did it all the time I didn't love you like you loved me I didn't trust you, I thought you'd cheat I didn't love you like you loved me I project my insecurity I didn't love you like you loved me I was wrong, you sure showed me I didn't love you like you loved me Nathalie, I'm sorry

Smokey 03:05
Smokey in The cage tonight And he's a little baby He is just a little baby He didn't know All the love Or what he meant to me He was just the sweetest guinea

Tomorrow 02:27
My days turn into years My mother stares down on my casket And I'm just passing by my headstone It's my last visit for a long while If I don't try I might never know What could be of my full potential Tomorrow, we'll never know Who we are when the morning comes Who will we be tomorrow? Who will we be next year? Who will we be tomorrow? Who will we be next year? Who will we be tomorrow? Who will we be next year? Who will we be tomorrow? Who will we be next year?
