Track Name: It Took You
is this true?
is this true?
is this true?
is this true?

saw you last week
you seemed so alive
now they are speaking
hushed on the side
fought for so long
i guess they win this time
i hope you enjoy
what's on the other side

could be a dirt nap
could be a deity
could be something else
whatever it is at least you're free

whatever it is at least you're free
whatever it is at least you're free
whatever it is at least you're free
whatever it is at least you're free

is this true?
is this true?
is this true?
is this true?
Track Name: You Know?
well do you know?
do you know?
do you know?
do you know?
Track Name: Wonder
sometimes i wonder
where you went
when you said you were going away
i wonder
i wonder
i wonder
i wonder

ooooooooo oooooooo ooooooo ooooooo

i wonder
i wonder
i wonder
Track Name: Mazzy
here she comes again
walking in my room
i wonder what she wants
could it be the food
she thinks
i don't know the game she plays
when she pretends she likes me
but i know what i know what she wants it's the food
oh it's the food and
she is coming in here wagging her tail
everyone is looking hey hey yell at
her when she's bad her when she wants nothing but the food
but the food
now she wants me to pet her on the head i refuse
she's laying on my bed with the food
Track Name: Sam
the most bitter consequence
for trying to make something
out of something that evades sense
i left it in suspense and waited
i tried to make it safe, warm, incubated

but it still turned cold and i'm turned
torn up inside, i think you lied, i think you lied
what you tried was a lie but at least you tried
for if not for trying i might have died
the thought of the rejection
scorned, bad child, father's lesson

in the streets the voices echoed and severed
in the cold summer night air, paradoxical weather
hunched over, face wet with saltine liquid
defeated and somber, defeated and broken
a grey cloud walked around a melancholy sound
a melancholy man who felt no one would understand
No one can fix what he had just seen
what he had tried to be, not of himself and he failed
this was his loss of a dream, a perfect tale
a perfect tale
a perfect tale
he had a perfect tale
he had a perfect tale
Track Name: Blame
I should want to be with them
Because I call them friends
But I just want to be alone
Passing time with no one

This place in life
The time flew by
Have I been alright?
What kind of human am I?

Shut off drifter drifting
With the music loud not listening
It often doesn't make sense
Cut it off when it gets intense

Too emotional human being
Trying hard to fight feelings
Putting more weed in me
Losing the grip of your cling

Past memories flash violently
I leave the room silently
You said I acted fake
But it's you to blame

It's you to blame
It's you to blame
It's you to blame
It's you to blame
Track Name: I Wish
sometimes i wish i could deny love
i wish that i could give it up
but i keep on coming back love
your touch keeps me up

so i can't deny it, it seems
i'm trapped i can't be freed
sometimes i look at you and think
what does this really all mean?
Track Name: Students (An Announcement)
attention, this is your principle speaking
some of the students will be out of the building today,
they are sick
please do not ask the administration further questions on the matter
for now we are keeping silent

don’t worry about the strange things
walking around the halls today
they will not hurt you
we promise high school students

for some of you, this might not affect you
for some of the, this might change your life
Track Name: Make You
echoes on the inside
sometimes i wonder
is there something more
i could do to make you

you say you love me
i wish i could believe
but i’m doubting myself
makes me doubt you

i’m sorry the way that i am
affects how you are
this is crazy, what is love
this is crazy, should i give up

please, please, please take me
please, please, please shake me
out of this fit, i’m too deep in it
break me, break me, take me
Track Name: The Decision
what should i do with the choice you’ve made
what should i do with your voice in my head
what should i do when i’m waiting for you
what should i do with all these memories
what should i do with all these pictures
with should i do with all this furniture
what should i do with these cats
what should i do with a life that’s passed

i
i am waiting for
i am waiting
i am waiting
for you to change

i am waiting for you to change your mind
Track Name: I'm Sorry
I took the long road
To drive past your house
I didn't want to see you
Just wanted to feel near
Where did the time go?
I know I wasn't the best
Eating my apologies now
My watch stopped for a minute
One minute turned to one day
I didn't stop there, I kept it going

For this I am sorry
Track Name: Dancing Alone
trying to trace the time is crazy they say
i can’t my head out of it, i think I’m going crazy

i’m dancing alone with you
i’m dancing alone with you
i’m dancing alone with you
in my dreams, in my dreams

i lacked the strength to say no to you
i lacked the strength to fight for you
now i'm dancing alone with you
i'm dancing alone with you
i'm dancing alone with you
i'm dancing alone with you in my dreams
in my dreams
Track Name: House
i'm alone in this house
i'm alone in this house
i'm alone in this house
i'm alone in this house without you

you left me stuck here with all these feelings
you're really gone what was the meaning
i'll find out how you changed me but for now i'm screaming

i'm alone in this house
i'm alone in this house
i'm alone in this house
i'm alone in this house without you

i'm glad it happened like it did so many good times i won't forget
i know someday, you'll be my friend

and i know it needed to happen
doesn't stop me from hurting
and i know it needed to happen
i, just wanna stop hurting

i'm alone in this house
i'm alone in this house
i'm alone in this house
i'm alone in this house without you

without you
without you
without you
without you
Track Name: This Is It
i know this has been coming for a long time
well here it is and i'm not ready i find
myself crushed i feel so lost without you
i can't help myself what will i do

you said we're better friends i guess i agree
but i'm still hurting missing our love already
i feel stuck here in this tiny bedroom
of the place i called home i guess it's not for you

i asked you one more time please let's work it out
the worst thing happened when you opened up your mouth
you said the words that no one wants to hear
i think it's best we move on it's been a nice year
Track Name: What Will It Take?
what will it take for you to see?
what will it take for you to love me?
what will it take for you to believe?
what will it take for you to see?
what will it take for you to love me?
