Track Name: Monsters
There were monsters
waiting outside
The entire time
So we embraced them
and laid upon the grass in the broad daylight
In nothing but our skin

They had fangs
They had anger
and we mocked them
The hole in our hearts
what we used
As we fought them

There were monsters
waiting outside
the entire time
So we embraced them
And laid upon the snow deep within the woods
right beside their home

When they finally noticed
We were wrapped up in the sheets
In another town

There were monsters
waiting inside
the entire time
So we fled them
fleeing for our lives
Into the darkest depths of eachothers' hearts

They were larger
and darker
So we ran
They took control
They lashed out and hurt our friends

There were monsters
waiting inside
The entire time
Track Name: When You Were Far Away
She sat on the couch
The one she gave to us
When she moved out
She looked so tired
As we talked
For an hour maybe less
He looked so sad
it was evident
He wanted her to stay
The love they share
is beautiful

I don’t want a repeat of the worst day of my life
On the car ride home I let the tears flow from my eye
I don’t want a repeat of the worst years of my life
When you were far away

She had left before
I walked her to
the airport
She had left before
I helped her move
her things
She had left before
Her new life went on
without me
She had left before
She’s leaving again

I don’t want a repeat of the worst day of my life
When she closed the door I let the tears flow from my eye
I don’t want a repeat of the worst years of my life
When you were far away

Let’s fake sick
And play Gameboy on the couch
And watch Japanese cartoons
All afternoon
Let’s drive around
We can sing and dance to
the only song we could agree on
Let’s go on a trip
Trap lizards in the mountains
Camp through thunderstorms
And pretend we’re on TV
Let’s forget
the troubles we both face

I don’t want a repeat of the worst day of my life
On the car ride home I let the tears flow from my eye
I don’t want a repeat of the worst years of my life
When you were far away
Track Name: Life Is Hard
Sleep can be so hard
These walls won’t let me see the stars
Life can be so hard
In the end, we never make it that far
And I know I’m not the only one around
Who wants to give up
But no one seems to care when every single sound
Is a cry for help

I tried to say I cared for you
There’s so much to see in everything you do
I tried to prove my words ring true
Because you make me want to pull through

In the morning I awoke and found your coat
Lying on the floor
And I released a sigh of hope at the thought
Of seeing you once more
Because I missed you in the night time
I was lost inside my own mind
Fighting off the demons that awoke
When the stars left the sky
And I gazed upon the sight truly hoping I was still asleep
And I stumbled to my room as I began to weep

I saw your skin, resting upon his
I saw your skin, resting upon his
I saw your skin, resting upon his
I saw your skin, I saw your skin, I saw your skin

Do I really mean, nothing to you?
It’s obvious I mean, nothing to you
Do I really mean, nothing to you?
It’s obvious I mean, nothing to you

Sleep can be, so hard
Even though, you’re not far
I hear your voice, through the wall
Into the dark my mind falls

We’re both aware of how I feel
But in the end
It’s clear you’d rather be sleeping with my friends
We both know, how I feel in the end
But it’s clear, sleeping with my friends
Sleeping with my friends
Track Name: The Ledge
Ultimately life is pointless
Nobody really matters in the end
everything I do, is a waste of time
But I don’t wannna die tonight

I made my way back to a home
Filled with arrogance and senselessness
To find everything I feared came to light
I ran as far as I could
but the bitter cold is getting old
and it’s wearing me down
I’m tired of being alone
But I’ll wait for the rest of my life
All because you said you’d come back to me
And if you lied
That’s fine
Because you’ll never know
What you threw away

Take me seriously
Like you used to
I’m not your burden, I’m your friend
Take me seriously
Like you used to
I’m so tired of being mocked

I’m tired of working so hard
but if I keep writing songs
The voices go away
I’m sorry I hurt your feelings
But you broke my heart so many times
And you don’t even care

I can’t stand cell phones
I can’t stand cell phones
I can’t stand cell phones
I can’t stand cell phones

Take me seriously
Like you used to
I’m so tired of being mocked

You’re hurting yourself

The promise that I made
In the parking lot
Waiting for a ride
Out of town
Made me walk away
From the ledge tonight
You were nowhere to be found
Track Name: Friends
I screamed at the wall, and he answered
why are you hurting yourself
I paused for a while and reflected
And realized I bought this myself

So I told him
how I thought I
Was the kind of man alive
And he told me
that’s a fast path
To dying

I went for a walk, and he followed
Speaking through lines in the sky
The words that he shared, with such wisdom
Made me collapse and start to cry

The days that ensued were endless
Too many doctors, not enough friends
I’m tired of being so hopeless
and wasting all my time

Reducing all the reasons
nothing left untouched
I’m covered with the scent
of my sins

When everything is over
Can we please still be friends
