Track Name: Unhinged
Beneath the dirt and bloom
Soon there 'll be no more room

For me and you
Track Name: Grow Up
Remember when
When you said
That you'd never leave me?
Well here I am
You never left my head
But still my hands are empty

And at this rate, I wish you'd stayed
You don't hear anything that I fucking say
I am misery

And at this rate, just go away
I don't mean anything that I fucking say
I am insanity

Remember when
When you said
That you'd never leave me?
Track Name: Anxious
I found my way to the back door
Exit strategy
I've never felt like this before
Explain to me
Just why I am
Terrified of nothing and everything I see in front of me

I'm trying
Keep lying
I'm dying
Denying
(The only thing to fear is fear itself
The only thing to feel is anxious)

Self awareness, heightened senses
Breathing shortened, known neurosis
Palpitation, perspiration
Existential diagnosis
It's why I am
Terrified of nothing and everything I see in front of me


I'm trying
Keep lying
I'm dying
Denying
(The only thing to fear is fear itself
The only thing to feel is anxious)
Track Name: Necessity
I've been up all night and I'm still shivering at the thought
that you've avoided confrontation; conversational desperation
Fuck you
You'll never understand the thoughts that I tread through
and you're exploiting my frustration
postponing eventual communication

You want to breathe me in
(without inhaling)
Try not to asphyxiate
I am your necessity
So let me break your skin
(Enter your blood stream)
Feel me course into your veins
You said you can't live without me

There are always consequences
Considering the circumstances
These are predetermined repercussions
Okay, I have a fear of rejection...

You want to breathe me in
(without inhaling)
Try not to asphyxiate

I am your necessity
Track Name: Hibernation
The thrill of the chase is the only thing that compensates
For my sneakers
You're always on my mind
Always on the run
The lines of your face aren't the only thing I want to trace
With my fingers
The lies I could taste
Give me your tongue

But you never knew just what I knew about you
And so you continue
You always do just what you knew you'd want to
And so I pursue you

Think yourself into unconsciousness
For the evening's slumber
But you don't need no beauty sleep
(I hope you see me in your dreams)

I want to be the one who watches you
During hibernation
And holds you while you weep
(Yeah, you cry so beautifully)

But you never knew just what I knew about you
And so you continue
You always do just what you knew you'd want to
And so I...
I fall in love with you
Track Name: Good Enough
The days are growing shorter
And so I lose my temper
Are you sick? 'Cause you still stick around
As autumn turns to winter
Sadness leads to anger
Are you stuck or are we safe and sound?

I'm sick of being sad all of the time
Feel disgusted, maladjusted
I smile and pretend that I am just fine
I try to change the way I am
And I've accepted that I'll never be good enough
Track Name: Hazy
Along for the ride
Anywhere but here will be just fine
Put on a disguise
It's so hard to believe in anything

Don't go outside
Fear of falling into the night sky
Such dirty eyes
Tired of feeling blind to everything
Track Name: Flesh
I swear to God or lack thereof
Eyes made for staring at the sun
Lusting lovers acting primitive
I'm just a man without my mask
Letting the cat out of the bag
Instinct takes over in a place like this

I knew right when our eyes first met
You'd be the one that I would ask to dance
Before they have a chance
And it would be a shame to hurt
The heart beneath that pretty piece of flesh
But we can't resist

Potential promiscuity
You show me yours, I'll show you me
Repercussions were not concerning
Oh, casual consensually
I'm fucking you, you're loving me
Is that the way that it always will be?

Ooh, heaven in between your legs
Is where I plan to make my bed
See red, and bury my head
Chivalry is dead, she said
But I'm a gentleman
Take your turn, ladies first

Ladies first
Track Name: Sleeping In
Take me to a place
Where the sun don't ever shine
I need to find some peace
It's always raining in my mind
And I know you know that I'm incapable
Of being on my own

I apologize ahead of time
I'm gonna bring you down with me
With all the sadness in my mind
I think I'd rather go to sleep

In my dreams I can be anything including happy
If that is what it takes, then I'll escape being awake

Take me to a place
Where I can feel alright
I need to get to sleep
'Cause there's no point to life
But I know you know that I'm replaceable
So leave me all alone

If you want to know where I'll be
I'll be sleeping in
Track Name: Leave (Go Ahead)
Run away
I won't mind
One mistake
In your life
I won't blame you
At least I'll try
Hate to see you
Make your way through the line
