Track Name: There's Nothing You Can Tell Me
no, don't put it past me to flee
when you know I can hardly sleep
pacing back and forth while the heartache creaks in the floors
of this apartment, stuck in the web we've started
(we're exhausted)

i remember the scene, a smoked out room still haunts my dreams
i sweat off the weight of a year wasted in unit 18
it's a drunken and anxious relief to be rid of the world on top of me
with the end of the lease

now i'm stuck in this pit, falling through part time shifts
but i haven't forgotten how it felt, or that i do this for my fucking self
and no one else

i cant spit the words out towards the nights we spent
hiding from the old friends that we once confided in
i had to escape with my mindset before i destroyed it
and every thing i held close to me
it's about time that i realize there's nothing you can tell me
that i haven't told myself
Track Name: Smoked Out
your sarcasm sinks in
in a room too shallow to drown in
between the confidence and back-handed sentiments
it's fucked but you know just how to fake it

i never told you the things i meant to
it haunts my every motion
i drove that whole time wishing that i'd die alone
one day i'll let it go

i wasted all this time

i've turned stagnant in this state, wading through all the mistakes i've made
the smoke it stains my lungs, i try to sing but the words get all choked up
i feel my heart crawling up my throat, it knows the words and it screams out
"when will i feel at home"
Track Name: Castles
the lights dim in the house that i grew up in
it's a shame that i watched it fade and decay with old age
now it's every night that i wake in a cold sweat with my hands outstretched
towards a life that i cant reach no matter how much blood i spend
and i'm wasting from my body

i'll try and replace it (our youth is dead so carry on without it)
i'll tear in my guts for a reason to believe it
but it's hard to find
when nothings adding up

it's hard to find when the basis of our youth is fleeting
and all the castles that we built are crumbling down
Track Name: Blaze Home
surrounded with fire
close minded cutthroats and liars

you've saved yourselves this time
confined with senseless, self willed tension
both you and i know what your opinions got to show
discretion? we're looking in your direction
so you can continue to be as fake as you want to

so call it off

this campaign of condescensions gone too far
its a curse to this collective and who we really are
two tongued and arrogant with misguided words that you hide in

i just cant shake the feeling that all of this is wrong
its structured to fall, you're going to lose it all
describing your credentials/ like its never been done
when i was there, every single one

what you have to say you try so hard to save
with misused metaphors left on the venues floor
all your affected hooks, and all the time it took
to step in someone else's shoes and pretend they're yours

theres a difference between actual heart ache
and just having something to say
hide the fact that you've been found out
you're untrue with nothing to sing about
