Track Name: You Did It All For Me
Baby they'll throw me in a loony bin, they wanna see me die
So please don't ever hand me over to them everyone but me is losing their minds
I tell the truth and i see what is real i tell the truth and i see what is wrong
All these people have lost their ability to feel and my life is lasting far too long

So ill stop believing that you'll fall for me
I'll stop believing that i'm not crazy
And you totaled your new white corolla last week
Cuz you got way too drunk and you wrapped it around a tree

You did it all for me for me yeah you did it all for me
When i am gone i want you to sing along and say maybe it was meant to be

Maybe it was meant to
Maybe it was meant to
Maybe it was meant to be

When i am gone i want you to sing along and say maybe it was meant to be
Track Name: Dirty Sheets
You're a glass half full kind of gal and now you're gallivanting around
Pushing your piety on everyone else, paying your souls’ mortgage after the banks all fell
You worship those crystals and think that heaven's just a ragged little house
Honey let me tell you something about hell, it's not just dirty sheets in a run down motel

It's not just dirty sheets in a run down motel
It's your final resting place and your holding cell
It's burning on your hand from table salt and ice
It's the sight of love fleeting from your girlfriend's eyes

Stop telling me
“It's on the inside”

It's not just dirty sheets in a run down motel
It's not just dirty sheets in a run down motel
It's not just dirty sheets in a run down motel
It's your final resting place and your holding cell

It's not just dirty sheets in a run down motel
It's your final resting place and your holding cell
It's burning on your hand from table salt and ice
It's the sight of love fleeting from your girlfriend's eyes

Your self righteous lover doesn't want you like I do
Your great great grandfather doesn't need you like I do
You don't want a husband oh but I need a wife
Baby you don't care about me but you're my whole life

Stop telling me
“It’s on the inside”
Track Name: It's Eating At Me
Cry, You shouldn’t have to try
It’s emancipation pain
The kind you pray away
And it’s eating at me
Track Name: TV Screen
I was killed on the TV Screen
They started riots just for me
A mom and dad lost their son
At the end of a sad cop’s gun

Self aware suicide
Publicized because I’m white
Take a breath and pull the pin
Go to hell, it’s where I live
Track Name: Magnetic Silence
Magnetic silence, it’s running out
Moving quickly from the couch
In and out of love in 24 hours
It’s a hell of a thing, it’s a hell of a power

To leave it all behind in one split second
You hate me and I kind of expect it
The windows are green and your eyes are glaring
I just can’t believe that you’re getting married

To this idea that you don’t need love
You’ll get to your thirties and realize that you’re numb
Your dad never liked me because I skated his pool
But you never liked me I was just your fool

If it was up to me everyone would be happy
I wish that was true, I wish everyone was happy
If it was up to me everyone would be happy
I wish that was true, I wish I was happy
Track Name: Suddenly Visions
Your mother was 16 when she had her baby boy disguised in
Yellow flowers and moms clothes your family frowns upon the young and dumb
Recalling bible verses about love, It wasn't love

I hesitate to enter your urban bedroom afraid that I'll
Find your body hanging from ceiling fan I think I'd die
You said you'd hang onto your twenties then you might take your life,
I cried

Suddenly visions of drunken teenagers violently flooded
Back into my skull you were my best friend giving me a lesson
On how to tell if your blood is going cold I think it’s freezing

Driving to church we were guilty of lust wanting to jump out the
Car with our lives sliding on concrete was not foreign to me
It's an anniversary that I forgot long ago
I'm home
Track Name: Is This All We Got
Cigarette smoke, that place we go
It's all around me
Fountain of love, it’s all dried up
You laugh loudly

This time next year we won't be here
Got up and left me
Better than most we still don't know
If this is lasting

Is this all we got, Is this all we
Is this all we got

The cancer eats at your body
But you're still lovely
I hope we die get left behind
In waters raging

This cry for help this desperate yell
My voice is fading
Live as you are inside your car
Devoid of feeling

Is this all we got, Is this all we
Is this all we got
Track Name: It's Summer
It’s summer and I’m in a van
No AC just plastic handheld fans
And I miss you, I’m tired of playing shows
And I love you, I’m starting to hate the road

You said, “Come home”, you know I can’t do that
You said, “Come home”, I want to so bad
You said, “Come home”, you know I can’t do that
You said, “Come home or I’m leaving you”
Track Name: -Liam Murphy Holt
Walk outside, the lake overlooks the sad in your eyes
Turn your head, there’s nothing I could say to mend
The heart that’s broken in your chest

Second chance, something you gave to him in advance
It’s alright, he’s just no good but you’re worth the fight
He made you bleed all through the night

I know every scar you have
And i know that he’ll want you back
Give me a chance and you’ll love me too
Come on baby whatcha got to lose

One last hug, all the joy and the guilt come like a flood
Come on in, it’s only a month til I see you again
It’s only a month til i see my friend

I know every scar you have
And i know that he’ll want you back
Give me a chance and you’ll love me too
Come on baby whatcha got to lose
