Track Name: blunt wraps
a decade's gone
the world's the same
they wrote songs about it
i wrote them every day
and the honey's gone
we're not enemies
your books on my desk
i'll remove those eventually
i can't say i blame you
i can't say i blame you
only something
when there's nothing to do
can't say i blame you
i can't say i blame you
i can't say
i can't say
you're the smell on my breath
when i'm trying to move
time isn't changing
my brain's just stuck between grooves
i can't say i blame you
i can't say i blame you
only something
when there's nothing to do
can't say i blame you
i can't say i blame you
i can't say
i can't say
tired of running free
into the warm air of summer nights
sunsets and street lights
scathing into me
until i burst apart
Track Name: greasestain
success success, can't decide what's best
to degrade my soul or put the old dream to rest
spring is coming clean and she's o' so green
but when autumn gets back she'll be splitting at the seams
greasy brown locks you stay melting in the sun
yeah you never say sorry while you're still having fun
greasy brown locks you stay melting in the sun
yeah you never say sorry while you're still having fun
saw that face in the crowd yesterday
found myself searching for the right way to say
after all of this searching
i still feel the same
greasy brown locks you stay melting in the sun
yeah you never say sorry while you're still having fun
greasy brown locks you stay melting in the sun
yeah you never say sorry while you're still having fun
Track Name: die young
all my friends
so depressed
start the car
read the text
seatbelt on
kim asked me
had i seen
what happened
mouth open wide
"please don't tell me that he died"
one new reply
"he committed suicide"
drove to school
face got red
got there late
so much dread
i got home
couldn't cry
in my yard
scratched out eyes
bright red sun
try to stare
our friend's dead
cannot bear
bright red sun, try not to stare
you won't know, you weren't there
when the king vanished into thin air
bright red sun at which i stare stare
you won't know, you weren't there
when the king vanished into thin air
bright red sun at which i stare
the radiance is too much to bear
i think i wanna visit cuz the king lives there
Track Name: decadents
smiling friends
seductions purred
these are the things that i don't deserve
watching you
your words were slurred
these are the things that i don't deserve
frayed nerves
things i've said go unheard
these are the things that i don't deserve
bury me six feet under the earth
these are the things that i don't deserve
one day you'll get what you deserve
