Lyrics:

You’re not twenty and detached now

Way too easy to push your chest out

Well I’ve been watching you

From way across the room

I like the way your body moves

They’re pushing like a riot

Acting like you like it

I would leave if I were you

 

But I won't let you down

(I said) I won't let you down

 

I wear glasses so that I can see you better 

I put shoes on so that we can walk together

Late at night when all I see are spinning faces

I wear glasses so that I can see you better

 

Wait, don't just sit down

Here's your drink, come and dance now

 

I've been watching you

from way across the room

I like the way your body moves

You don't need anyone

To tell you that you're done

You know just what you wanna do

 

I won't let you down

(you know that) I wont let you down

Lyrics:

I wrote this song

A thousand times

Cuz all the messes that I make are getting difficult to hide

I take my life 

I box it up

I light a match and take a breath and watch the flames do what they want

 

When I was really young my father taught me that a fire cleanses everything 

A fresh set of your dreams

But now the smoke is filling up my lungs and I'm suffocating 

 

I know what you did

I can't believe you right now

You had a second chance you fucked it up again oh no

I love what we had

But I don't need another friend

I got a second chance to make it I’m jumping off the ledge

 

I wish I knew

What people felt

I wish that I could hear what you do when I open up my mouth

 

I thought by now

I'd know who I am

But maybe growing up is realizing you'll never understand

When I was 21 I'd waste my nights gettin drunk in a Tustin living room, my mattress on the floor

But now I need something stronger just to get me there and I'm disintegrating 

 

I know what you did

I can't believe you right now

You had a second chance you fucked it up again oh no

I love what we had

But I don't need another friend

I got a second chance to make it I’m jumping off the ledge

 

This is my this my last 

This is my this my chance

This is my last second chance to prove

This is my this my last 

This is my this my chance

This is my last second chance to prove 

That I’m not you

Lyrics

Pick me up in your Monday suit and tie

Grab a drink in the lobby before nine

You complain about your weight and waking up on time

You need to chill out and follow me tonight 

 

Waking up in a place I've never been before

It smells like piss and olives

Getting drunk never used to be this difficult

I hear the graveyard calling

Stop talking bout your work you know you’re not gonna go 

Might as well kick the bucket

Yeah it sucks getting old but how you gonna stop it?

 

How you gonna stop it?

(Let it go)

 

Take a chance with me let’s step outside

This party sucks but where else you gotta be tonight

Seems to soon to get back to our lonely lives

I don’t know if we can keep up but I’m willing to try

 

Fall asleep on a bed I’ve never seen before

Who likes a soft ass mattress

Throwing up in the hall of my sisters dorm

Everyone saw that comin

Getting drunk never used to be this difficult 

I hear the graveyard calling

Yeah it sucks getting old but how you gonna stop it?

 

How you gonna stop it?

(Let it go)

 

Take a chance with me

It’ll be alright

Take a chance with me

You’ll be fuckin fine

Lyrics:

Even though it's cold outside

The fog ain't pushin through my mind

I think I've seen enough, of you

But Have I had enough, of you 

 

I think it's gonna rain tonight

Cover up the stains with white

Heaven's always new

An unattractive truth 

To choose

 

You know that I've been broken down before

Now it's just something else I can't explore

I feel like every time, it takes less and less

To move on with my mind, there's nothing left

 

Now I want more

(I want more those days I want the sun in my eyes)

Now I want more

(I want more those feelings crawling up spine)

Every minute of every hour

(Every day I want more of the night)

I want more of you  

 

I've been waiting for you to call my bluff

I can feel the difference, steam and smoke

Clouds in my mind, these bones are dry

You know I've been trying to get it right

Steel between my veins, can't describe

But this fire's nice, these shadows lie

 

You know that I've been broken down before

Now it's just something else I can't explore

I feel like every time, it takes less and less

To move on with my mind, there's nothing left

 

Now I want more

(I want more those days I want the sun in my eyes)

Now I want more

(I want more those feelings crawling up spine)

Every minute of every hour

(Every day I want more of the night)

I want more of you

Lyrics

I laid on my back

An echo of silence 

Floating on top a shallow pool of self awareness

Or a lack there of when I saw your face and I knew

That you were drunk

 

I laid on my back

An echo of silence 

Floating on top a shallow pool of self awareness

Or a lack there of when I saw your face and I knew

That you had just cum

And you were far from done

 

All we want to do is to be something, be something we're not

But all we really need is to have someone to hold us when we're drunk

 

It's more than just sex

It's more than our bodies

It's more than a movement made from self loathing and irony

But I don't know what to call quite just yet

So I'm gonna shut up

Cuz I'm so far from done

 

All we want to do is to be something, be something we're not

But all we really need is to have someone to hold us when we're drunk

Lyrics

Can I help you escape 

The vacant look on your on your face when

You're confronted in real life and you don't know what to say

 

Ya I'm a creature of my habits 

I'm afraid of many things

But now I got something to get off chest

Are you listening

 

Am I just screaming to the void

Are my lungs making any noise

Can anybody hear my voice

Am I just screaming into the void

 

I don't know if we're helpless

But I know we love to complain

Instead of solving the puzzle we just throw the tough half away

 

We're all creatures of our habits

We're late to everything

When I saw the death of the last real man

No one was listening

 

Am I just screaming to the void

Are my lungs making any noise

Can anybody hear my voice

Am I just screaming into the void

 

If you want something to get done

You gotta do it for yourself

If you want anything to get done

You gotta do it by yourself

 

If we want something to get done

We gotta do it for ourselves

If we want anything to get done

We gotta do it by ourselves

Lyrics

I'm driving down an empty road

There's no more sights, no more home

The sky is darker than last night

But I will drive till I see light

 

I'm swinging from a chandelier

The view gets worse every year

The gold is duller to my eyes

But I'll hang here, until I'm blind

 

I pushed the button and nothing happened

I'm a thief that ran out of gold

I worked myself to the bone to find

I'm just a thief who's ran out of gold

Lyrics

It's in your eyes lit up like fever

There in the corner of your smile

I see the lines you try to hide from me now

And a little bit

Of my heart feels

Like we're all messed up inside

And a little part

Of the fears gone

When you call and say goodnight

 

These Night Lies

 

Ya little bit of my heart feels (woah)

These night lies

Ya a little part of the fear’s gone (woah)

 

You've come to tell another story

This one you made up on your own

I find the middle pretty boring 

Now I'm the one that's on my own

I'm terrified 

Wondering where to go and I don't know what happens next

And when you call

Something in me cries

Part of me's scared you won't be coming back

 

These Night Lies

 

Ya little bit of my heart feels (woah)

These night lies

Ya a little part of the fear’s gone (woah)

And a little bit

Of my heart feels

Like we're all messed up inside

And a little part

Of the fears gone

When you call and say goodnight

Lyrics

Don't fight the feeling

The tighter your hand grips

The further the smoke slips away

 

You better have a good reason

If you think you can own me

 

Cuz I know myself

And I know my body and I know what I deserve

I could fill my cup 

With your blood money

But then who would be the villain

 

Take my hand 

Show me how to do it

I'm spinning out don't wanna be the villain 

It feels like I’m about to lose it 

So take my hand and show me how to do it  

 

Don't fight the feeling

The water gets deeper the further you swim away

 

You better stop all that thinkin

The moment you notice its way too late

 

Cuz I know myself

And I know my body and I know what I deserve

I could drink my fill

With your blood, honey

But then who would be the villain

 

Take my hand 

Show me how to do it

I'm spinning out I don't wanna be the villain 

It feels like I’m about to lose it 

So take my hand and show me how to do it

Lyrics

I don't know if I'm lost again

But somehow this all just feels the same 

I've been waiting for answers

When I should've been pushing through the maze

Cuz I can feel my skin

Pulling on my face

I can feel my hands

Falling off my waist

I can see the earth

Looking far away

Like a marionette 

Who has cut his strings

 

If it doesn't kill me

Does it mean I've grown

If it doesn't hurt me

Can I turn it up

If I hit the bottom 

I can stand back

If my blood is pumping

 

I'll be alright

I'm just alright

 

I'm lost again

But this time I'm fine with where I am

I only brought what I need with me

So you can just take everything else

I don't need my skin

If it makes me bleed

I don't need my plans

If they make me need

I don't need my job

If it makes me wait

If my body's gone

Why should I remain?

Lyrics

I remember when we were young

When the smoke would cover the sun

And we would both lose our jobs, at least for a week

 

The ocean looked one giant grave

You know I've always seen it that way

But now I feel like it's high time, to see if I can swim

 

She said go

Wherever you'd like you

Cuz you've got time

You've got time

To pick the places that you'll fall

To pick the people that you want

Then she said no

The bottles dry

But that won't save me

But that won't save me

But you've got time

Ya you've got time

Cuz you've got time

Ya you've got time

Before we burn

 

I remember talking the same

Getting coffee everyday

Watching everyone else drink cuz I can't stand the taste

 

The sky was getting darker each day

The highways packed for miles each way

And I felt that it was high time to learn to swim
