Track Name: I Ripped Up the Letter but I Sent it Anyway
A hundred different questions, the answers all the same. Everybody finds the time to go their separate ways. I've got a thousand books. I'm never gonna read. I read graffiti in bathroom stalls. That's enough for me.

Where'd you go? I've got a package for you. It's just a box that's full of bubble wrap.

The world is getting bigger, but this room feels the same. It's just a useless dark location where I can't fall asleep. Cause someone broke my heart. My friends got sick of me. The words are easy enough to find but I probably shouldn't speak.

Where'd you go? I've got a package for you. It's just a box that's full of bubble wrap.

Where'd you go? I've got a package for you. It's just a box that's full of bubble wrap.
Where'd you go? I've got a package for you. I put all the good times in a box, but it's empty.
Track Name: It's Fine
I'm so tired of walking through the snow-covered streets of small town Minnesota. I'd rather be sitting in the snow-covered parking lot behind Whole Foods. I'd rather be on that bench Walgreens where I used to sit alone listening to music on my phone, and thinking about all those faces I wouldn't see again, thinking about all those places I could never miss.

So I'll cut off all my hair. I'll close my eyes for a couple more years. I'll try hard and maybe I'll survive. I guess I'll see you there, even if there means nowhere. That's just fine. I'll fall behind. I don't care.

I've been thinking about University Avenue. Thinking about every one of you. I'm trying to figure out any other way out. I need to know, I need to go, and I need it now. Save me a seat, and save me a bullet just in case I change my mind. I've got nowhere else to run to, so maybe it's just a matter of time.

So I'll cut off all my hair. I'll close my eyes for a couple more years. I'll try hard and maybe I'll survive. I guess I'll see you there, even if there means nowhere. That's just fine. I'll fall behind. I don't care.

So I'll rip out my hair. I'll close my eyes for a couple more years. I'll try hard and maybe I'll survive. I guess I'll see you there, even if there means nowhere. That's just fine. I'll fall behind, and I'll rip out all my hair. I'll close my eyes for a couple more years. I'll try hard and maybe I'll survive. I hope I see you there. That's just fine. I'll fall behind. I don't care.
Track Name: Cavity
If you had asked I'd have said the same thing that I said to everybody else. "I'm just fine. I'm over that."
Now I'm over being over that.

These words could die on this page, and the truth is that we're better off that way. Well I'm tired of being better off.

I guess I tried.
Track Name: I Left the Lights On
I came out through the front door. I think I left the lights on. I'm sick of saying sorry. I'm sick of being sorry. Everybody says that I should grow up, cheer up, get a life. I've given up too many times. It seems like things will never change, yet I can never be the same. This town burns holes into my brain.

I came out through the front door. I think I left the lights on. I'm sick of saying sorry. I'm sick of being sorry. I need to make this feeling last, because once the anger's gone I'm gonna want you back, and I don't want to want you back.

Sometimes you still cross my mind, and it still kills me every time. I know you didn't even try. One of these days when I'm driving by your house I'm gonna close my eyes. Then I'll crash my car, and then I'll die.

I came out through the front door. I think I left the lights on. I'm sick of saying sorry. I'm sick of being sorry. I need to make this feeling last, because once the anger's gone I'm gonna want you back. I don't wanna want you back.

I don't wanna you back.

I came out through the front door. I left the lights on.
Track Name: An Excuse
If it helps I'm really sorry. If it doesn't I still I am. We both know the truth is that I never had a chance. I could never fight you like I can't fight gravity. I know you never really thought you meant this much to me.

I guess it doesn't matter now cause there's no going back. It might be all downhill from here, but I'll do my best to laugh. I know it isn't all your fault, but it's also not all mine. As the time goes nothing changes but the time.

I'm so tired, but every time I turn the lights off they keep coming right back on, and I can't close my eyes, and I can't close my eyes.

I'm so tired.
Track Name: Like Glass (demo)
I probably had something to say, but I've forgotten it by now, and I don't wanna remember why. I don't wanna remember why.
I can never pull myself together. I can't get out of this. I'm no victimized tortured soul, I'm just another mess.

I don't wanna be anything, but I wanna be nothing less. And all that I can think about is how your lips felt like glass.
I finish thoughts that I never started, well I guess I'll start them now. It's been a long time, and now that you're long gone I really fucking hate this town.

And I'll do my best not to remember you.
Track Name: Untitled (demo)
I'd die alone tomorrow if I could spend today not feeling alone. I would run away if only I could find a home.

I've been fighting myself for a little bit too long. The sun shines through my window and it feels so wrong.

I think I'd make the best alcoholic in the world, but I'm a bit too lazy to start drinking now, because everybody seems to find everything out. I've been found out.

I've been laying face down on this half deflated air mattress waiting for the world to end, because I'm sick of it.

Just give up the first time if I don't answer the phone. I've been thinking lately maybe we're all better off alone.

I've been laying face down on this half deflated air mattress waiting for the world to end because I'm so sick of this.
