Track Name: Is It Bleeding?
Winter's cold, your house is colder,
I'll die waiting for you to act older
Won't hold my breath any longer

Gossip you can't live without,
Bite the tongue in both your mouths
You're the drug that did me in
Became a pill; I took it and swallowed it

Hearts fleeting; that I'm afraid of,
Always got tricked by the change up
You're the psychic who can't read her own mind,
These lies, I'm finding all the time
The photographs are burning,
Memory of you has no place here

Morals we let go of,
We change for the ones we love
Cast ourselves aside,
Somehow thinking that will change their minds

Instead you cut my neck,
Is it bleeding yet?
Can't bear to look at it

So tell me,
How you let go so easy,
Find something else so quickly
(All your lying and cheating,
and fucking and telling, behind me)

The other life, I know about,
Yeah, the truth always comes out
Might as well just tell me now

Want trouble, it's not too hard to find,
When you walk the thinnest of the lines
She'll slip on unforgiving ice,
The shock will strike and hold her tight
Stop time, prolong that second;
A life of constant panic
Snap that picture of you so you'll see
How every single moment feels to me

I don't want to remember

Can't go without your drug,
Never put down that cup

Winter's cold, your house is colder
Track Name: Show Me How
Stay with me,
Woah oh oh
I'll help you find
What you don't know
If you don't learn,
How can you grow?

You don't need what you want right now
(You don't want what you need right now)
Stick around,
And I'll show you how
Track Name: Keep It
Quite honestly,
I should have seen this coming
Alluring eyes,
Evil, yet so enticing
It's a miracle,
I just made it out with scratches
I'd give anything,
To wake up before it happened

I didn't sleep last night,
Or yesterday, or any night since then
(Just want to fix this,
No one deserves this)
Sense of security
Is present lying shattered on the ground
(What happens, you'll see,
When you steal from me)

It's alright kid,
You don't have to understand it
If life made sense,
Nobody would ask questions
Free from worry now,
She's his headache to deal with
Won't use this heart again,
So you might as well just keep it

Those days are fading fast,
Banished to the darkness of my mind
(Memories far away,
Where I hope they'll stay)
When love can be revealed,
As nothing more than selfish interest
(Count me out, that's it,
I'm so sick of this)
Track Name: Hi Positive, I'm Dad
How could I not know?
The entire time, you were miles past the line
Living two lives,
Building up a lie that you knew
Would destroy my life

Always the one you think it is,
They can't help but go back to them
They've got a hold stronger than sin
Won't be surprised when it happens again
I played the fool too many times,
Just used me as a ticket for the ride
How the fuck does this happen twice?

Know when to let go
Enough is enough,
You know you're worth much more than this
(Won't stand for it, no)
And if I see him one more time,
You know I'll kick his teeth in

How could you let him in like that?
I see him ravaging your body
I almost cut my eyes in half
To save myself from ever seeing again
I'll take a bus to god knows where
'Cause anywhere is better than here
And if I see you, full speed ahead,
The collision will send you both down
In the dirt where you belong
And you'll both finally be home;
Deep in Hell, in each other's arms
Alone at your funerals
Track Name: Last Song Kills The Audience
Today's the day
I'm gonna find out something
Throw you into your own game;
I want to see how you can play

When the pressure's on,
You'll wonder how I dealt with it so long
You'll know how I felt with you in my life,
When you wake up screaming every night

Well it's sad and you know that it just goes to show,
You're never gonna get the chance
You still try and you fall, your legs break, so you crawl
Drag along what's left in your chest
Feel the spikes in your head wipe the blood from your eyes,
Should have never gone outside
It's like having a ghost for a friend,
Living with mistakes of the past

Now I'll sit back and wait,
In the same chair that you did
Rocking myself back and forth,
As you scramble for the pieces

You told me you believed in Heaven,
So why did you bring Hell up here?
A life of impure intentions,
I swear you'll never make it there
