Track Name: Pattern
I fall into that pattern of self-abuse
To chase those thoughts that linger that aren't true
How am I to find?
The right method to confide?
In myself?
I fall for lies my brain choose

With my frail mind
I seek to find who's by my side
Take time, analyze
I can never move forward if I don't try
Track Name: In Reference To
Cue me in on what I never knew
Though, few however ever endeavored
All your rules, it's true
In reference to
The being you portray, you're not at all that you
That crafted personality has really fucked you and
You haven't got a clue
I hope you pull through

You've had enough
Take the pain and turn it into a song
If that's not power?
Help yourself for more than an hour
You know that you could be
Just like anybody
But you should set yourself to be
The best of anybody
Track Name: Apprehension
I still feel apprehensive
To go on with the way I live
I always forget the person I really am
I always forget I'm a person outside my head

But I can't really kill myself yet
It's fucked up that I would even consider it
I just live with all this apprehension
Others know I'll always have my compassion

And that's sad, i'm worth more than that
To be thinking constantly
To be worrying, of everything
Even the thoughts that bother me

And what that says 'bout me as a person
I always try my best not to question it
Why the fuck do I have to question it?
When I clearly don't even fuck with that?

I don't want to make my mom cry
I don't want to make my grandma cry
I don't want to make the homies cry
I don't want to make my brother cry
I don't want to make my sisters cry
I don't want to make my nephew cry
I don't want to make myself cry
I don't want to make my girlfriend cry
Track Name: The Next Day
I'm staring at this picture
We took at the end of last year
And I can't have you anymore
I enjoyed our time together

Although that things are over
And we have have moved on
I can focus on my own problems
And find healthy coping

I will never listen to my own mind
I know my heart's good inside and outside
My OCD fucks with me

Today's my day I feel like a person
The next day's already here
Today's my day, improving myself by
The next day's plan of having no fear
Track Name: Mother's Day
I miss you very much
You were another mom to me when I was growing up
You were so great and never fake
You never faked your personality
I don't care what they say but

You were so much more than a party animal
You were always a great mother
You were so much more than a drunken set of words
You always told me that you cared
You always showed me that you cared
Well Happy Mother's Day, today we're sad
Though you and your daughter still remain best friends

Though I miss you, I still feel our memories
Though I miss you, you're no longer suffering
But when I laugh for instance, you are with me
But when I love for instance, you are with me

At the Pearly Gates where they found you
At the Pearly Gates we'll one day join you
But for now, I'll do what I can do
I'll always love you and miss you, Grandpa too
Track Name: Talk to Me
Talk to me
Any night, even when
No one seems to be there
Don't want you to end up with nowhere to go

Usually cynical, it's hard to make a friend
Oh yeah, oh yeah
But you seem great and I like you a lot
You think the same, I tell you that i'm not
Constantly hate myself for the simple act of thought
Wish I didn't live this way, it fills me with distraught

Although it's all in my mind
I can't help but feel fucking awful
Oh and why?
I haven't done anything
Yet the thoughts fuck with me constantly

Oh yeah, that's okay
One day I hope it all goes away
It's a lot on the brain
And the heart, my life feels grey

But I hope you know that you, you can
Talk to me
Any night, even when
No one seems to be there
Don't want you to end up with nowhere to go
Track Name: To Tell You: I Love You
First off can I say?
I really love the way you love me
And with every single day
I really love the woman you are

And that's not all, and that's not all
You're my best friend, you deserve the world

I know that it's taken a while
So here it is, your song

I'd like to tell you, I love you
Every day, in a song, so here you are
I'd like to tell you, I love you
Every day, in a song, so here you are

And that's not all, and that's not all
You're my best friend, you deserve the world

I'd like to tell you, I love you
Every day, in a song, so here you are
I'd like to show you, I mean that
Every day for the rest of our lives

And when we grow old, we can put this song on
And this will be, your first song
Track Name: Tranquility
Please take me by the hand if you're willing to show me
All the beauty in this life, I'll take it in for what it is

But can you please remind me?
Of who I am when I forget
Know it can be annoying
But please bear with me, I won't let
This be, a crutch on me or limit my abilities
I'll conquer all ultimately
I'll make you proud, just you see

But more importantly,

Take me by the hand and tell me
How to live so graced and care free
With this disability, I crave all tranquility

Take me by the heart and show me
Just how much you really know me
You are always there for me, I'll love you for infinity
Track Name: When I Wake
When I awake, you're always the first one that I take in
When I awake, you're always the first one I say hey to

I always ask you "how's it goin?"
And then you're usually always working
But yet you still make time for me
On the job, even when it's busy

But more importantly, I think the sweetest thing
Is just being able to tell you anything
You are my Winter, Spring
You are my Summer, Fall
I promise through out the years
To be forever all yours

You're my best friend in the whole wide world
Want you to know, you'll always have a home
In my arms, in my head
In my heart, In my bed
In my soul forever, even when I'm dead
And you will always have me to take wherever you go

When I now wake, I'm in amazement by your face and
When I now wake, I fall in love just everyday now
Now i'm awake, and i'm now grateful to be playing
Now i'm awake, and I don't see life's love decaying
Track Name: Song to Myself (Pt. I)
What's the point in living with this hate towards yourself?
Can you find a new way to reassess your self review?
Cause you're killing you
And you don't need know-how
You can pick at all your worries
That's on you, you clown
You'll lose

What do I have to do?
To get you to prove to you?
To trust in you, that none of that
Pertains to you, please don't let your thoughts
Define you, or try to win
You can not lose
When you have love in you
This is a song to myself, all I have to say:
Please don't be so hard on yourself
Track Name: Song to Myself (Pt. II)
Another day, drifting off
Into your thoughts, intrusive
This is a song to myself
As a reminder, to give me help

Don't listen to your mind, just continue your life
You'll never shed another tear

Hey, listen close, you're really not
Any of those things your mind perceives you as
Obsessively thinking,
An addiction of mine that I didn't want

Don't worry 'bout your scrupulosity
You hurt yourself by thinking constantly
Just trust yourself and know yourself honestly

You're the only one that knows you deep down
Know yourself and what you're about
Take a moment, sit back down
You know how far that you've come around

I'd like to not to, I'm not going to
Fall into these rituals
I'm not going to, fall back into
Not going to live like this anymore

Now I can live my normal life
