Track Name: We Never Learn
I watch you grab everything by the horns
I watch you grab everything by the horns until it mows you down
All that's left is the sound, of your whimper

I watch you swim with sharks for fun
I watch you swim with sharks for fun until it turns around
eyes fixed on you

You ought to spot it
you ought to see
you should've spot the pattern
You should have seen

We play with fire till we can't feel our finger tips
Woah
We play with poison like we know it doesn't really exist
Woah
We play with fire till we can't feel our finger tips
or feel it burn, or feel it burn
We play with fate until we burn and do it all again
we never learn we never learn
We never learn we never learn

I never knew what it meant to bite off more than you can chew
I never knew what it meant till I laid eyes on you
I never knew I never understood the meaning of being in over your head
I never knew I never understood the meaning of being in over your head

We play with guns, bombs, cyanide and arsenic
we play with fire, lies, and everything in between
We play with loaded threats and empty promises
We play everything you ever feared
Track Name: Petty
Well my mother always told me, I should really be a lawyer
I will argue any point until I win if it takes all night
Too stubborn for anyone except a court of law
Maybe I'm too stubborn to admit that she was right

Yeah my mother always said I should be a fucking lawyer
The amount of stupid shit I want to debate'll just drive you up the wall
I point my mouth into the sky, and I blow my hot air
I gotta be right, I gotta be a know-it-all

Yeah I'm that petty
I'm so petty
I should be a fucking lawyer
And I'm good at being petty
good enough
to be a fucking lawyer

Cross my heart and hope to die, hope you don't bury me alive
I'll make a point of making sure you want to before I get up off this ride
I know just how to get under your skin, how to be perfectly irritating
Stubborn is the only language I speak I just will not give in
Track Name: Fragile Minds
Verse 1:
It's like
I'm lying awake at night
I don't think its safe it's like
I'm changing my ways it's like
I'm not the same this time

I'm losing my head its like
I'm better off, not quite
thoughts drive me insane its like
i can't trust my brain tonight

Fragile bodies and fragile minds I can't
get enough sleep could you shut the blinds I can't
seem to close myself off from me
why is there something dark in everything I see

Chorus:
Hold my head up my neck isn't quite that strong
i don't know where it's been all this time
I've hacked myself up I've brought me down
I don't confide in myself unless nobody else is around

Verse 2:
In most of my dreams I'm tall
but they end up being nightmares
where I'm far too small

On most of my days I do
nothing to save face I'm
waiting for something to
pull me through but I'm stuck in my

Shallow body and shallow mind I can't
get enough sleep could you clear my mind I can't
seem to close myself off from me
why is there nothing pure in anything I see
Track Name: Bottles
Sipping water while everybody talks
running back and forth on stories keeping everyone absorbed
club beats start playing on somebody's spotify
Everybody's dancing miming at you join the vibe

Things are heating up you see some people losing clothes
shoes, shirts, bras everything'll start to go
someone's passing pills round a circle by the wall
girls are whispering in boy's ears you can have it all

Everybody's head swivels they just heard a crash
a bottle fell off a table and split right down the cracks
a shard here and there a few people cut their feet
everybody just continues they don't want to lose the heat

A circle forms around somebody "get it down in ten"
He gets it down in 9 pukes in the hall and starts again
A girl grinding a boy takes his hand leads him away
they find the vomit in the bed keep going anyway

someone broke a window throwing bottles at the wall
that okay it was an accident. Noone's fault at all
but we're gonna need some money just to get it replaced
he isn't liking that he throws a punch at his face

somewhere down the road a girl threw herself in the lake
someone's naked outside trying not to shake
someone else is passed out alone and in a slump
someone else is in emergency getting their stomach pumped
Track Name: Bedsheets III: Would You Lie?
Is it worth all the effort they ask
Just pretend to be happy try not to be sad
If you buckle down stop being selfish
they say then you can just get over it

how easy it is to say,
That there's nothing wrong with her
yeah there's nothing wrong with these
entitled spoiled brats

How easy it is to read
a blog that agrees with me
it's as good no its better than fact

And If I said
that I cried
what would you say
would you lie
would you say
you were there

And if I said
that I meant this
that I need it
just to quit
would you say
that was alright
would you lie

It's just like anything else
put a plaster on it and it goes away
It's just like anything else
if you ignore it it causes no pain

We're uneducated, we're stuck in our ways
like everything else if we ignore problem maybe it'll just go away
well this isn't funny, and it isn't safe
this problem will fester before it fades

And if I said
that I tried
would you care
would you lie
would you say
that's just how it is
And if I said
that I meant this
that it hurts just
to say it
would you laugh
would you cry
would you lie

My bedsheets keep me cold
they never worked at all
my monsters still haunt me

and bedsheets I trusted you
what more can I do
my monsters will haunt me

And If I said
That I hate this
that I'd do anything
to kill it
that it doesn't
just go away
Would you still
deny it
treat this
like a virus
do you know
there's lives at stake
would you lie

I only care for myself
I'm all that I see
I hate being shallow
but being deep would drown me
Track Name: If God Was One Of US
Flying headfirst out of a cannon's mouth
Is probably something we could learn to do without
sell your point any point with fear
and wonder how we ended up here
Wave this at them this is their fault, what they wanted
was too much, they got shame and they want to flaunt it
cause pain that's what god would want
I know for a fact that's what god would want

*what if god was one of us*

If God was one of us he'd be insane
If God was one of us we'd lock him up and call him names
If God was one of us we'd put him on a fucking leash
If God was one of us we'd treat him like a new disease
If God was one of us we'd call him freak
We'd sew his lips shut for ever trying to speak
If God was one of us we'd make him scream
For claiming to be something holier than me
If God was one of us he'd be insane

Lead me to the camps, where they come and they stay
stuck in our homeland we won't have it this way
chase them out, string them up by their feet
i pledge it on this book that preaches love and peace
Let them know, let them know, they do not belong
immigrants founded this land just for us
Men in Judea wrote the western custom
lock and load for god if you've got a problem

If God was one of us he'd be insane
If God was one of us we'd lock him up and call him names
If God was one of us we'd put him on a fucking leash
If God was one of us we'd treat him like a new disease
If God was one of us we'd call him freak
We'd sew his lips shut for ever trying to speak
If God was one of us we'd make him scream
For claiming to be something holier than me
If God was one of us he'd be insane
If god was one of us he'd die alone
noone would believe he ever sat on a throne
if god was one of us he would weep
If god was one of us he'd never be able to sleep
If god was one of us he'd be a loon
If god was one of us we'd put him in a padded room
If god was one of us we'd burn him like an effigy
for ever claiming to be something pure or holy
If god was one of us he'd be insane
Track Name: Calloused
Is it the people you never see
or is it only the ones you'd guess to be
so envious of humanity
so jealous they exude none to see

I throw flames at those scared of fire
I've got callouses on my skin and bones
I've killed men just to look like I like it
I've got callouses on my heart and soul
I've hacked to pieces those I held dear
I've got callouses on my lungs and brain
I've caged victims and killed kids in costumes
I'm calloused over I feel no pain

Maybe it's the kings and the queens
who know that if they want to they'll never be seen
maybe it's your family
who know you'd never suspect a thing

I've hurt babies to stop them from screaming
I've got callouses on my skin and bones
I've taken advantage of those in my care
I've got callouses on my heart and soul
I've made people kill for my own pleasure
I've got callouses on my lungs and brain
I've infected the world with my madness
I'm calloused over I feel no pain
Track Name: Cynic
I put my head on top of my heart for almost everything
It's only ever worth the effort as long as it makes sense
If It's informed by emotion or faith then it's got to go
If it's not backed up in science and fact then I'll have nothing to do with it

Try to fix me , try to cure me
I'm a cynic and that's how I'll stay

Bleed it out have faith in me yeah that's how I like it
yeah bring it forth have faith in stuff I like because I'm a hypocrite
Scream at the sky in my name because I fucking like it
I'm inconsistent I'm aware but I don't care

I'm a cynic and that's how I'll stay
I'm a cynic and I like it that way
I'm a cynic and that's what I want
I'm a cynic please stay away
Track Name: Romance
Romance trips me up
and it confuses me and I get it wrong
and signals stress me out
cus they're mixed up and I can't tell

Blurry vision I can't see
You blur the lines between you and me

I don't stop the words before they come Tumbling out
I only wanna be with you now
and I try anything but, as far as I can see
I don't get girls, but she gets me

Loosen your touch, loosen your grip
Because I just can't, keep up with this
Yeah romance trips me up, but I can't get enough
Track Name: I Told You So
Welcome Welcome Welcome to the wedding
We're glad you could come
We weren't quite expecting, so many of you
Excuse me a second
Here find your names
The groom's in the closet, with one of the bridesmaids

And I hate to say it but I hope you know, I hope you know
that I told you so, I told you so
And I can't help but not forget that I told you so, I told you so
so now you're on your own, you're on your own

So let's just, let's just, let's just stop pretending that this brings you shame
you're so self destructive, you've only yourself to blame
I remember you told me, this time
I'll find the right guy
Someone to hold me who'll never leave my side

and I think you owe us all an apology
we bought the ticket to fly out here
you said it would be spectacular
and I'm not saying that it wasn't quite that
but at the end of the day, I'm gonna say
that I would like my money back
Track Name: Anybody Else
Hold me back I can't
take it anymore
It's become such a bore and it's weighing on me

Please cut it out I can't
bear to listen anymore
Because there's nothing right about what you'd have me endure

It feels like a knife in my back again
And this time I just can't make ammends

Just Stop it please
I'm on my knees
And All I want is a little reprieve

Hold me back I can't take it anymore
It's become such a bore It's become such a bore

Please cut it out I can't I can't listen anymore
Please cut it out my brain feels sore

I don't wanna be alone tonight, I just wanna be with anybody else but you
I don't wanna be alone tonight, I just wanna be with anybody else but you
Track Name: Wasting Time
I don't think you know
what you've got yourself into
let's get serious
i'm just warning you

that it doesn't really get much simpler
no it doesn't really get much easier
than this
you dont really ever get much more mature
you dont ever really understand it more
than this

You and I just might
Never see eye to eye

I hate you but I
love you too that just
what it's like

I don't think you guessed
what this is all about
the truth might surprise you
it might just let you down

that it doesn't really get more logical
that it doesn't ever really slow down at all
that's just how it is
you don't really ever get much more in sync
with everyone else or with anything

It can feel like a
drag if you let it
Like a waste of time
just forget it

We're all losing out
We're all wasting time
we're all just trying
to get it right this time

We're all holding on
We all need some help
Stay with me tonight
and get me through this hell

We're all losing out
We're all wasting time
we're all just trying
to get it right this time
