Richmond 02:54
[Verse 1]: As if I had all the answers, to fix your mistakes, I couldn't risk too much, it was all at stake I lost trust you, I've got a bitter taste in my mouth all the words go south these days You couldn't talk about your problems, I was never there to listen I've been here before I'll be back again and this is nothing new It felt like days were catching up to me with all this pain and suffering I'm not sure I care, anymore [Chorus]: Build up my hope, I know you knew, I know the truth My potential wasted slow, beat up and used Use me some more, give me some room [Verse 2]: I guess I'll call it a first, oh how it's mutual and everything you know because you ask me about my days You don't think before you speak and your interests are not for me But I'm so alone I need to receive some attention I've been paid You caught me at the worst spot, in the worst space of your favorite bar My most hated place, Know that I was trying to relate [Chorus] [Verse 3]: Cut me down, the drugs don't do a thing, you should've lied to me You never fucking ruined me, my head is an open wound, not your tirade [Bridge]: There's nothing to erase, I'm sorry about how I feel [Alt. Chorus]: Build up my hope, I know you knew My potential wasted slow, beat up and used Use me some more, give me some room [Outro]: Build up my hope, I know you knew, I know the truth My potential wasted slow, beat up and used Give me some room And now we're through
Distant 03:15
Lost my only contact with the outside of your room Collect the specs of nothing that I had left for you I'd say anything I could if only it would make you stay This interest is dis-interesting I fail with words you burden me No, not scared But sad to say the least My guard, fell down, with the walls created weak I felt your love, your stupid love that you had wasted all on me Taste the bitterness of me I hope you sob, I hope you weep I don't get it, I'm not on my hands and knees If begging’s what you like then I will plead Nothing speaks to me or comforts me I'm not getting sleep barely functioning Bury the blame it's all your fault because I'm lost and I'm found but I'm alone in the long run again Why won't you fall for me I'm distant like you asked me to be Distant like you asked, hang over my head My ribs bruised not broken from holding it all in I see your face unlike the others, I'm sure I'm thought about at times If the only way way is over it, our time has to die
Simply put but never spoken, put in your place but never woken Your intentions are repulsive, they're just like you I'm a victim of something I can't explain, I've always talked it out, it gets me nowhere Thanks to you, my heads confused, you fuck me up There's no excuse Focus on someone else I'm not invested no can't you tell, can't you tell I'm outside of your interests am I boring am I distant enough to waste your desperate taste Leave me a worthless case I guess if miscommunication is in our hands then what I heard isn't what you said I haven't been homebound in 3 years, I climbed that fence Where am I who am I kidding? You took a different route you're so misleading Thanks to you, I'm broke and bruised You fuck me up, it's nothing new There is something that you must confess Did I fill your time by counting weeks Waiting on clockwork doesn't make the bags under my eyes seem less desperate and fantasized, calling out my voice is heard it's you I hate Are you content with being breathless you can't come from pain and expect from me, anything
Come down with it, you're expectations are so high You leave a blank space and an image on my mind We could rot together, but you wouldn't let me in The distance, you're beside me I tried to comprehend These are my hands, swollen and bruised but not as rough as yours And my hard work is not worth more I'll sing for myself now, you're the subject of it all I guess I'm letting my guard down, The first hole in the dry wall And there I said it, I guess I finally let you in Why haven't you answered? I'm peeling back my sun burnt skin I can't breathe for you there are somethings you have to do for yourself Wasted morals, you've gotta be questioned more because lately I've earned, some fucking answers from you Time has it's curse it's always to late or two soon to be fragile and burned it could happen to anyone
22A 03:31
Settle in this house thats not my home I chose a place that I kept close You're living care free, but can you help me I'll be the one who sees you most Your hands don't work, I suffer too But not as much as you Cause you can't pick and choose Move from the couch to your bed that night I never got to say goodbye Do this laundry list of things They don't have time but neither do we I bend over backwards to know that I can Then why the hell do I feel sad I hope the views is as good as it sounds Cause I don't believe in heaven But we're wasting time in this hell An unlocked door is questioning I hear no footsteps in my head I threw flowers on your casket, they were purchased by my friends The lack of company is killing me I know this sorrow too shall pass, but now it's time to make my bed Don't wait for me, you can turn off the lights and lay as still as you sleep
Commitment 03:09
Start me off by calming me down My blood leaves my body You can hear it hit the ground Pardon my bed ridden sound Over sleeping, barely eating I never thought human contact would create this wasteland Tie my bones with string, my strength is weakening One day I will break from these makeshift chains Create a description you barely listen But you heard me right this time Forget our place, forget my name Forget those ordinary things Fucking useless, and mostly tasteless see my eyes roll back enough, broken footsteps, my body's a doormat, there is no welcome here at all When you decide that your ready to start again. Forget it Why would I waste my time on this Poison, but covered in a blanket of excuses Come over here me out for once. No wait forget it, I'm fucking done
Hang 02:54
I never kept them, The promises I made Why in the hell would I keep something that meant, nothing to me I'm sorry I don't feel Bad Cause I lied and you'll just have to cope, you can get in line or throw me some rope Hang me off of your ceiling I'm bent into shape cause you made me who I am today We can try this once again but inside I feel dead, from the slack in the rope We can try this once again, but this time I feel it, in the back of my throat Hanging beside you till I choke Until I choke So tell me how, you made it here all by yourself and how you never asked me for my help And I'll just swallow my fucking pride If you're gonna change, stop saying it, but I'll never change Cuz I'm bent into shape cause you made me who I am today But you're nothing just like me I've had it up here With all my fucking fears, just let me function before I say fuck it Hanging beside you till I Burning inside until I Hanging beside you till I Choke
Chine Drive 03:48
Why do I care, I spent more money than time I hate the fact that my hearts in tact but not connected with my mind And I left the awkward gifts over my bed Calling you from chine drive so you can get inside my head Pleases mean things to me, But your excuses run deep I'm sorry that you're drinking again, this has to be the fifth time this week Are of staying for my sake I swear I changed the lock before you ruined me What is your destiny? I'm set set in my ways, look at your wrongs and repeated scenes And you go on about fake displacement issues like me not fucking mine My time is out of the question now, Due to the act that I'm nothing and you will do better, Than me I'm just a goddamn page in a history book That will never be read due to the fact that I'm nothing and you can do better So I will write this page, give it a second look You won't read it anyway due to the fact that I'm nothing and you can do better You ruined me
Dim 03:08
I put off things that I hold dear, my heart aches from words unclear You couldn't grasp my destined place, a place you need not to be Curse me with hope, validate me the same Use yours words please, tell me you hate me I think I can handle fate You lie like I don't But my word punctures through No light shed on purpose, almost everyday I feel my patience start to break I'll take my turn with fate, my open arms are less giving The marks on my legs from climbing steps, the steps I take so you digress Figure I'll stay long, the effort was not bought, strictly borrowed from your grip I'm losing a person I never deserved this but that's life I guess No light shed on purpose almost everyday Connected with weakness and my desperate taste I was no one to you, no that's not longer the case I feel my patience start to bend and break
Scarred 03:17
You're not worth my time(no settling) Please god if you exist, I'm questioning my faith like I never did You have no answers(for anything) Do you miss me yet Cause I always let you take from me I'd rather bleed to death You've seen a side of me that's been scarred, burned beyond recognition If I give you one more chance, will you prove me wrong Cut open my chest, there's no feeling left For someone who left me, are we done yet I'd kill to burn your photos but oh how you'd love that You're being though about I'd rather bleed To death Than be forgotten You've seen a side of me that's been scarred, burned beyond recognition If I give you one more chance, than I'm a sucker for repetition Afraid of blank space, and consistency You've seen seen a side of me that's been scarred Peel back my nails, I've never worked so hard You've seen a side of me that's been scarred
