Track Name: Everything's Coming Up Milhouse
On the verge of a break down
For the hundredth night in a row
Digging out my foundations
For reasons I don’t know

Falling apart at the thought
Of spending another night alone
Can’t pick up the courage
To break out of my comfort zone
This is how I spend every day
Avoiding people like the plague
Living life the cowards way
I’ve never got a thing to say

I’m having the worst night I’ve had in a long time
Trying to find comfort in each word and each rhyme

I put my hoodie up and my head down
Wander through this cold dead town
Make my escape through empty streets
Just another night of facing defeat
I’ll try and find strength in these six strings
I’ll find passion in these words I sing
These are the things that keep me sane
The stupid songs and the winter rain

Hiding from bright lights and pints
I’ve made this dark corner my home
Learning how to set my sights
And escape feeling this alone
Inside my head dying slowly
Always afraid of little things
Like the thought of staying lonely
And all the heartache that it brings

I’m having the worst night I’ve had in a long time
I’m trying to find comfort in each word and each rhyme

I put my hoodie up and my head down
As I wander through this cold dead town
Making my escape through empty streets
Just another night of facing defeat
I’ll try and find strength in these six strings
I’ll find passion in these words I sing
These are the things that keep me sane
The stupid songs and the winter rain
Track Name: Sidelines
You keep telling me that everything will be fine
You’re the definition of a man without a spine
You’re crass like a rat with an attitude problem
Another kid with a core gone rotten
And you won’t find peace with extended fists
You’re going to end up slitting your wrists
Just a typical tale of a potential wasted
Yet another kid fucked up and jaded

A plane spiraling down with a cruel end
You’re making the final flaming ascend
The modern day Challenger disaster
Going down again in flames and laughter
That empty bottle tells a million tales
Go and take a deep breath and then exhale
And when the world seems most dead I’ll be there
You gave me no reason to care

Tell me your story
Where did it all go wrong?
Tell me your story
I know you’re still strong

Tell me your story
Where did it all go wrong?
Tell me your story
You've known this all along

Terrified from outside looking in
I can feel myself implode from within
You hit rock bottom and you made it back
Heart's something he really doesn’t lack
As I watched everything fall apart
Suddenly every stupid thought becomes art
I hope at the year ends all is forgiven
Because I really do owe you for all you’ve given


Tell me your story
Where did it all go wrong?
Tell me your story
I know you’re still strong

Tell me your story
Where did it all go wrong?
Tell me your story
You've known this all along
Track Name: Clearer Skies
2 years seems so long ago,
I can barely remember
The way I loved the spark in her eyes
That brightest ember
I never meant to break her down
I never meant to snuff it out

So bottle it all up, batten down the hatches
Say you’ll be okay when the waves start crashing.
You can’t outrun the storm, so you just run and hide
That body of water will eventually get inside
Drown you in the past, drown you in your lies
Make you wish you made for clearer skies

Always the martyr, I recall
The victim in the forest
Words got twisted, time has passed
Please say you’ve forgotten
You crucified me then, so crucify me now
I take back every word from my mouth

So bottle it all up, batten down the hatches
Say you’ll be okay when the waves start crashing.
You can’t outrun the storm, so you just run and hide
That body of water will eventually get inside
Drown you in the past, drown you in your lies
Make you wish you made for clearer skies
Track Name: Waiting For Winter
I know it so strange to say
But I’m waiting for winter
I’m so hollow these days
I’m pining for December
Now this weeks going slowly
And I’ve lost all sense of meaning
Any sense of being home
Now I’m feeling unknown

I sit up every dam night
Listening to angry songs
About life and love
And where it all went wrong
And I tried to do better
But I got lost along the way
Honestly this is all I’ve got
Bitterness that can’t be bought

I’m waiting for winter
The shitty weather
When lights grow dimmer
And I am not alone
And there’s less pressure
Then I’ll feel better
I know I dream a lot
But trust me this is all I’ve got

I’ll try find myself tonight
In my books and my songs
The things that keep me hopeful
They've been here all along
Sometimes they're not enough
To keep me from caving in
I need some stability
And a sense of clarity

I’m waiting for winter
And the shitty weather
When lights grow dimmer
When I’m not alone
And there’s less pressure
And I’ll feel better
I know I dream a lot
But trust me this is all I’ve got
