Track Name: Take your hand
[Chorus]
Just so you know
I'm just so used
To never being good enough
At anything I do
You say it's just fine
That I'm amazing to you
But I dropped my best lines
Before I dropped this excuse
[Verse]
Oh, I'm just so bent out of shape
Yeah, I'm shaping up to be everything I hate
And I'm so easy to mold
It's like I'm made out of clay
But this is something I can not hold
Like your hand
Or my breath when you're away
I'm suffocating
in the mirror saying
[Bridge]
Oh blue boy
Turn a different hue
I'm sure they're willing and ready
To see something new
So just put on something else
Like that fake smile, what the hell
Just be anyone but you
You can be anything but yourself
[Chorus2]
Just so you know
I'm just so used
To never being good enough
At anything I do
You say it's just fine
That I'm amazing to you
But I dropped my old life
So why would I ever drop this excuse
[Verse 2]
I know I can't fool you
To you I am see through
When I turn to the mirror
and you draw me nearer
I'm the french opposite of your sex
I step closer to the artist out of reflex
Don't take my words out of context
[outro]
Because I can't escape you
No matter how either of us retract it's
Always another a futile attempt
You keep me skin tight
So do I, you, every night
Like you know me better
Like I know you best
Like you're my sweater
Like I'm your vest
I'm zip-stuck with no relent
Like we're matching straight jackets
With love, you can't escape yourself
Track Name: Weight For Me
I remember waiting
How the weight almost killed me
Trying to discuss what would fulfill me
But feeling overstuffed with disgust and creme filling
I couldn't see I needed clarity to realize levity wouldn't enlighten me
I had to fight to breathe in hopes I'd find release
But I found a deeper grief on the inside so deep
So I started making promises I couldn't keep
On all the pounds in hopes of relief
But my problems grew as I tried not to eat
Soon I knew, in sweat, with heat
Half this man I had to beat
Before his wasteful ways laid drunken siege
And tore away most the man I needed to be
I was truly at war with my obesity
It was eating me more, but I had a beast in me
Pushing three fifty on the scale made me feel sickly
So I moved swiftly, to stop letting myself go drifting
I stayed on my feet and in under a year a new man in the mirror I would greet.
Two thirty, I was forgiving myself for how I hurt me
That was the morning, my mirrors finally became worthy
If you're digging for the survivor within, just keep searching
What you'll uncover is someone you deserve to be.
It was for me.
Track Name: Yesteryear
Next year, I won't miss this year
But this year, I miss last year
Just like last year, I missed a past year
And it's nights like these that I am without ease

I'm lonely, but not the one and only
I know there's some one out there feeling just the way I am
It's more than just more than likely
That they see things just the same way that I see them

Tomorrow, I won't miss today
And yesterday, I didn't miss the day before
But just like the days before, I miss many of them, now tell me what that feeling's even for?
Those past nights were obviously never meant for me to put on repeat

We feel it, oh yeah we feel it
We're feeling every single thing
Like it's injected straight in through our veins
So tell me, did you feel that like I felt it?

I'm lonely, but not the one and only
I know there's some one out there feeling just the way I am
It's more than just more than likely
That they see things just the same way that I see them
Track Name: If it were a garden (I'd be David Spade)
When will I stop praying?
I know I know
These holy quotes didn't bless themselves
And all saints go to hell
Well I know
I woulda been better
If there was a rain check
For the rest of the weather
Oh and that bitter taste
Is the rest of our time wasted
When will you stop waiting?
Don't you know
Words like these don't write themselves
Love letters don't cast spells
Well you know
You shoulda known better
But there's no rain check
For the rest of the weather
Oh and that bitter taste
Is the rest of our time wasted
When will you stop saying
What everyone knows
Promises don't break themselves
We all know you meant well
Well everyone knows
They coulda done better
If there was a rain check
For the rest of the weather
Oh and that bitter taste
Is the rest of our time wasted
x2
If there was a rain check
For the rest of the weather
Track Name: Short, Sad, Sweet Nothin'
I figured I could always live in a dream
I figured I had a long way ahead of me
Until I looked over my shoulder
So soon, so much faster than it seemed
So soon, so, time was catching up to me
Until it left me, a colder shoulder

It gave me brain freeze when I tried to rest my head
And a break check when I leaned it back against the headrest
I tried to rest my eyes but only for a moment
They were right, you blink and you miss it all
I really think I missed it all
I only blinked missed it all
I really only missed it all

The good times must have flashed before my eyes
But just like a bad photo, they were closed
At least I had kept them open for so long so
I saw the bad times come and go
I saw the sad times come and go
I felt the cold wind blow in through my window

It gave me brain freeze when I tried to rest my head
And a break check when I leaned it back against the headrest
I tried to rest my eyes but only for a moment
They were right, you blink and you miss it all
I really think I missed it all
I only blinked and missed it all
I really only missed it all

It's been a short, sad, sweet... Nothing
Track Name: Coming of Age
Do you remember being a kid
Playing pretend
You wanted to be a super hero or princess
Just wanted to be someone of interest

Remember when you were just about 10
When you found out
Santa claus, the easter bunny, the tooth fair
They were all just pretend

You know how they told you
You can be anything you wanted to be
But what are they?
What the fuck would they be?
If they could be anything
Then why do they hate their lives?

Next thing you know,
You're staring down the timeline of 25 years
Your parents don't have the guts to tell you
Some guy you talk to online
has the nerve to tell you
you have decide What you're going to do with your life
Because if you keep waiting around
You're never going to sum out to anything

And you start to realize
Just like the easter bunny
Just like when you could play pretend
This has all been a game that they played with you
They enthuised it, they just didn't want your dreams to die so soon
They wanted you to be able o sleep at night and look forward to life
They wanted you to be able to continue forward and not feel like they did

And just like before
You could pretend that your goldfish or your dog that died
Ran away, or if you knew, you pretend that they go to heaven
But you know that they are just in a box, in the dirt, in your fucking back yard
There's no proof, just keep pretending

Because growing up
Growing up... Getting older, doesn't mean growing up
Growing up means taking responsibility of knowing everything dies
Everyone you love, your imagination
Your dreams.

They told you not to give up your dreams
But deciding to grow up
And settle for mediocrity
that's giving up, that's giving up on everything
Why did you even believe it?
What other lies did they tell you?
