Track Name: Maladjusted
Stop. This. Feeling.
My paranoia grows with every word missed.
Lips part, words fail to speak,
Fail to speak.

My fingers grow anxious (Words, Regret, Delete the rest)
In that order (Words, Regret, Delete the rest)
Hesitating to tell the truth (Words, Regret, Delete the rest)

Even after all this time,
You still give me a pit in my stomach.
My words like a knife,
Never meant to pierce, never meant to cut your skin,
But when used without caution,
Can leave behind scars.

My fingers grow anxious (Words, Regret, Delete the rest)
In that order (Words, Regret, Delete the rest)
Hesitating to tell the truth

I only fool myself thinking that I was worth the wait,
When invites become forgotten messages.
That's when I'll step back to reassess,
But will it be too late?

My words won't bite when your actions follow through with the words that you said.
Words fly, undecided.
Things unclear.
Plagued in my mind and my thoughts cannot subside.

Please, Stop.
This.
Feeling.
Stop... This.
Track Name: From Within
I am
your worst enemy
bending
over backward for you
-for you

I would
give up anything
and everything
in a heartbeat for you
-for you

hide from yourself
still as the night
and feed me that fear
which gives me life

so when you fall
i will be there
silently
awaiting your call
-for me

So push me away
but you'll never break
the skin
I'm in
shaping every sin
from within

(Aguanta tu lengua
Cuando palabras fallan)

you push me away
but you never break
the skin
that you're in
as a part of me
as a part of me

Run from yourself
as fast as the wind
and I'll pump the blood
that lets you live
-I let you live
Track Name: Flawless
Flawless beauty
slowly drips
from lips that
barely move but speak a thousand truths.
the only truth
before you
at arm's length.
and what
lengths
you would go
to have it
to hold.
so hold your tongue
and when words fail
fall into
eyes
that will understand.

Understand
the language
of a touch
gentle but firm.

Firmly brushing
away your concern.
Concern for lines
casually crossed.
Crossed fingers
casualties
lives lost
lost in the melody of a cool
clear
voice.

A voice so
Flawless
in its beauty.
Dripping from those lips
onto hips.
hips that gently sway
taking even the slightest breath away.

Understand
the language
of a touch
gentle but firm.

Firmly brushing
away your concern.
Concern for lines
casually crossed.
Crossed fingers
casualties
lives lost
lost in the melody of a cool
clear
voice.

So hold your tongue, when words fail.
So hold your tongue, when words fail.

And I won't let myself be pulled in,
Any deeper than I already am.
Track Name: No Cause For Concern
I tried hard
To achieve
Things that didn't quite pan out
So hard
To believe
I'll never land where I set out

I'm not thinking about suicide
Still value every breath I take, and all the friends still by my side
I'm just waiting on some good times
Been thinkin 'bout the past, wishing I could change all the wrong to right.

Count the hours till the sunrise
I'm still waiting on some kinda light.
Light...

Sometimes
I just can't
Conceive
This life feels like it's on repeat
And I'm stuck
To this seat
Flipping through commercials on TV

But I'm addicted to this kinda life
The liquor in my cup, guitar, and giving up on all my dreams
I might be thinking about suicide
But there's no cause for concern because the rope and knife are out of reach.

Count the hours till the sunrise
I'm still waiting on some kinda light.
Light...

I've been thinking bout it...

All
We have
In life
Are a few dreams and a little time
It's not too soon
To try
I wish I'd started sooner on mine

Now I'm fantasizing about suicide
And the freedom it might bring, but it's another way to waste my time
Cause I'm addicted to this state of mind
I'm climbing up the walls, disintegrating with the passing time

I've been thinking bout it
I've been thinking bout it
But I'll find a way to stick it out somehow...
Track Name: Cut the Chord
Look at my distraction
Keep my head down, buried in the muck.
Away from the problem beneath it,
Out of mind, Out of sight.

Fingers numb and eyes strained,
Keep me entertained, like a bright star.
(Please) Guide me
Inform me
Never let your light die

Keep me safe
Keep me sane

I think that I'll crave you
Tethered to my body, forever more.
Don't. Let. Me. Down.

Tourniquet, to turn it on,
To the energy, drained from me.
Loving something for nothing,
Giving up everything in return.

FINGERS NUMB, EYES STRAINED
KEEP US ENTERTAINED
TOURNIQUET, TO TURN IT ON
TO THE ENERGY, DRAINED FROM US
THIS IS OUR DISTRACTION

Keep me safe
Keep me sane
Keep me distracted
Keep me
