Track Name: Cool Story
a little humility never hurt anyone
just swallow your pride and admit what you've done
and as you drudge through the day
you'll keep trying to speak
its your lies that precede you as they pour through teeth
only foolin, yourself
a contradiction, a cry for help
its a damn good story, hope that you believe it
its a television show and we've already seen it
your stupidity is hurting everyone
you cant swallow your pride
or learn to bite your tongue
and i know it gets hard, yeah life can drag you down
i thought you'd get a clue but your heads still in the clouds
and all those things you failed to admit
just shut your mouth cuz i call bullshit
Track Name: Sleeping
Its a hard look in the mirror
when your reflection is what you fear
still staring at the ceiling, still can't shake this feeling
financially fucked for another year
I'll be crashing under the stairs
eyes fixed blankly at the wall
I'll be passed out on your couch
but I ain't sleeping much at all
a clear line of vision is getting harder to find
when catastrophic thoughts become benign
so I'll stare at this ceiling
still can't shake this feeling
when they say things will get better with time
I ain't sleeping much at all...
Track Name: Anthem Pt.3 (story of a lonely girl)
Not quite sure if what I'm doing is right
I'm second guessing my life's a mess
you're the only one I wanna see tonight
5 am I'm at this airport staring at the clock
the announcements start
the sound of the boarding call makes my heart stop
eyes are heavy, my body is weak
but it all seems to be worth it when I stop and think
I'm so tired of being alone
hanging out with friends that I've outgrown
and its all the same repeating everything
I need something new
all I wanna do is be next to you
Track Name: We Got Plans
You decided to call me, just to tell me
you were coming in to town
a week goes by, I almost forgot
I barely see you much around
now you're here and were drinking beers
a couple parties and were not seeing so clear
keep on moving through, I don't know what to do
a little drug use and still livin without a clue

A total and utter disregard
we had too many stumble out the front door
now were faced out in the yard
you got us kicked, I'm about to pass out
now were climbing up the walls
trying hard to wind down
speeding up as you're heading out of town

I'm just glad we still hang out
years go by and everyone starts to doubt
but a weekend full of getting loud
says it was the same back then as it is now

I barely see you much around
as you're heading out of town
Track Name: Stop Talkin
I don't fucking care anymore
listening to everyone's problems
and everybody's got em
wishing you would just go away
I guess I'm too nice of a person to say so
to really let you know
your blabbing is meaningless to me
wishing you would speak at a faster pace
to get you outta my face
even though I've got no one else to talk to
this party's fucking lame
and everyone's driving me insane
I'm going home so I can be alone
yeah I should have stayed at home
I'm passed the point of giving up on this
and I'm starting to have wished
I'd avoided your eye contact
its a known fact, its intelligence you lack
its so retarded I'm always bombarded with this
shut the fuck up kids I must insist
Track Name: Girlfriend Slightly Used
I've gone years as they pass me by
making excuses pretending to try
but the truth is I miss them
if I could go back
I'd fix all the problems, commitment that I lack
selfishness, all the anger and pain
late nights crying, childish games
forgive me I'm sorry insert name
this self deprecation is my own abuse
I need a girlfriend slightly used
