AWOL 02:14
He celebrates himself With misery and sorrow Filled with guilt and shame Never satisfied He can taste the blood As he apologizes to the world He lived his life Through his parent’s dreams An overachiever With his future paved Never had fun But who said that work is fun He’ll be better off Now that his childhood is gone Then one day he opened his eyes Millions in the bank, degree on the wall The one day he opened his eyes too late so he went AWOL Looking and searching for nothing Yet hoping for something

Lou Slips 02:54
Tie me up Put me on display Sink your teeth into me Make me feel ashamed Take it a hit Give me a taste Remap my brain You know my thoughts, my mood I’ll tell you anything just stop it You said it was our secret I’m hearing gossip Turn me out, make me your own inventory Infect me slowly So i’ll tell you what you want to hear Loose lips, sink ships We’ve got water in the hold Loose lips, sink ships Do what your told Loose lips, sink ships We’ve got water in the hold Loose lips, sink ships What makes us human Is that we don’t have to fight They hide and take away my rights Put on the night light, yea right Make me walk the plank Then throw me a lifeline Secrets safe, but they’re whispering below How many ways can you take my soul? Hold my breath as we sink below Great escape to depths unknown Tie me up Put me on display Sink your teeth into me Make me feel the shame

Dried Blood 02:28
Bloodshot eyes, too many beers Nothing to show for it save my brother And bragging rights Not giving up Wine stained lips Too many lies My family tears each other down Not you two Why can’t you be nice? It’s just us and them Why can’t we share our blood? There’s not a lot of laughter Not a love Not a love Pretty soon it’s all dried blood Not a lot of laughter Not a lot of love Pretty soon we’re gonna be dried blood Pretty soon we’re gonna be dried blood Bloodshot eyes from too many tears No one to listen to me Save my mother For the millionth time For the millionth time, you pick me up For the millionth time, we share our blood Not a lot of laughter, not a lot of love Pretty soon we’re gonna be dried blood Not a lot of laughter in my family Pretty soon DRIED BLOOD Pretty soon, it’s all dried blood Not a lot of laughter, not a lot of love Pretty soon we’re gonna be, dried blood Pretty soon we’re gonna be, dried blood

Empty 03:26
i thought back regret not knowing what to do dream of more than mediocrity i had time but i had nothing else to lose now i know i never had a clue you come around you come and go now everybody knows you came around just passing through we are numb we got lost along the way but there’s no one listening i’ve got nothing left but everyone around me doing fine right here for now here we go again how did it come to this memories i’d love to learn to miss honestly it makes no difference to me apathy washing over me it came around it came and went do you ever feel the same it came around it never left we are numb we got lost along the way but there’s no one listening we are numb we got lost along the way we’re doing fine right here for now

Weiss 03:56
Remember the day you changed my life? Opened your eyes as you closed your mind Words that you said, tore us apart Kept on walking you ignorant fuck Maybe one day you’ll think about what you said You left an old man freezing for your own warm bed The fuck Jay? Why’d you do it? The guy couldn’t sleep You said nothing to it You said he was ok Said he was ok That was just a foolish bluff The guy couldn’t sleep Cuz you had to be tough You let your own greed Privilege and status Take your Humanity That night, I was no better That night, I felt the pressure Since then, there have been others Now I choose them over brothers, over covers Maybe one day you’ll think about what you said You left an old man freezing for your own warm bed The fuck Jay? The fuck Jay? Why’d you do it The guy couldn’t sleep You said nothing to it You said he was ok Said he was ok That was just a foolish bluff The guy couldn’t sleep Cuz you had to be tough

Ear Fatigue 02:16
Dads at the office Dads on the links His kids want him home But dads sipping drinks Dads left a note Dads made a mess My policy will cover it He was a good man who always paid the minimums right on time He just got a little too tired to keep treading water Give me dopamine Dopamine You give me dopamine Forty, make it fifty, make it sixty.. just to give it all back Forty, make it fifty, make it sixty, making money Working all day just to give it all back Forty, make it fifty, make it sixty, making money Working all day just to give it all back Mom had that winning idea She’s gonna buy them all some happiness Vacations on credit cards Payments on furniture Weekends paying pennants And weekdays paying Paul We chase our tails day and night just so they can steal it right back Give me dopamine, I’ve had enough Little dopamine, I’ve had enough Give me dopamine, I’ve had enough I’ll endorse them.. I’ll endorse them to the world Forty, make it fifty, make it sixty, making money Working all day just to give it all back Forty, make it fifty, make it sixty, making money Working all day just to give it all back Forty, make it fifty, sixty.. Give it all back Forty, fifty, sixty.. Give it all back
