Track Name: Knee Fortress
Seven months woke me up
Maybe I've been wrong
I can't be honest with myself

Too embarrassed to address it
Too ashamed to make amends
I ruined things again.

This is not how I planned
I'd tell you that this has to end
Maybe words I wrote last year
Will let you know what I can't
They'll say I'm spent;
I followed you past the point
Where I built up regret

Let's see how this works out

Spent
Are we having fun yet?
Laughter filled with goals we never met.
Loose ends surround what we have left
Too much left unsaid

Sometimes I wish you stayed
To watch me lose my mind
Lose my mind
If you die first, let me lower your casket
So I can let you down one last time

This is not how I planned
I'd tell you that this has to end
Maybe words I wrote last year
Will let you know what I can't
They'll say I'm spent;
I followed you past the point
Where I built up regret

Let's see how this works out
Track Name: Master Roshi
Blocking out all of the noise
It seems to be safer here inside
Will I ever understand the colors of the night?

And I will hide in the darkest corner of my mind
Wanting for a way to be alone, but not be left behind

I'm trying, I tried
I'm tired inside
I can't find my head
I guess I'll go to bed instead

I've been lying to myself,
But I'm not convinced that I have patience for anything
Or anyone
Or anything that I can't do myself

I should get some sleep,
I'm staying in.
Track Name: Fan Death
I've been drinking in basements
I can't tell if I hate this
My mind's set on progress
I hope I forget how I got here

I can't remember the last time
My friends enjoyed my company
They're dying in front of me

What happens now?
(Hellbent on nothing.)
Shattered by the lack of sincerity
Put aside and only taken when you need me.

I've been drinking in basements
I don't know if I hate this
My mind's set on progress
But somehow, I've lost it

En route to the same mistakes
Over and over and over again
I am weighed down by indecision
Failure surround like haunting visions

(I've been drinking in basements,
I can't tell if I hate this.)

I don't blame anyone for setting me aside
I'm not used to seeing change
My eyes are getting dry

Maybe tomorrow I'll get this figured out
Maybe tomorrow I won't have so much doubt.
Track Name: Wubba Lubba Dub Dub
Remember the night we walked downtown
Spitting words of ice in the cold back to my home?
Remember the night I slept alone
In my car outside the driveway to your door?

I don't have that car anymore
I'm never in that town anymore
I don't have that car anymore
I'm never in your town anymore.

Remember the time we painted pictures of who we want to be?
But art could not predict who we'd become
December came, and overcast our vision
It was too late, already, that early.

Everything between my thoughts and the sheets left on my floor
Left me only asking why I ever expected more
Apologies won't change the people we became
All that's left is asking why I haven't been the same.
