Tim: I don't wanna waste all of my time with you, feeling terribly misconstrued You know that I'm just a fool. If I stay and remain how I am, then I know that tomorrow's hopeless. Time exists just to slip from my hands, and it's telling me that I must take action. But I've done this for too long, standing silent and withdrawn waiting for something to come and try to save me. Hazel: I may always be waiting for the other shoe to drop, but I'll look good while I do, and when it happens I'll be there. When I'm somewhere cold, bitching about the cold, and I don't want to see a soul, I'm not my best. I'm alright. Nicky: Self-critical treatment For once, just set aside Just write some kind words Let yourself love in spite. All you have is what you leave behind Might as well plant some flowers Make this place look nice

Guiding lights And those uphold me Lifting me with confidence With their hands on my shoulders Holding tight To bonds I’ve created That embrace me so graciously Their hands latched on my shoulders I’d make the time, and I’d even bear the load But it was hard to find, just someone I could lean on Weighted down, by the burdens I imposed So I would fall again, to display what I’ve endured As my will declines, flashes of fellow spirits surround me Blinded and lost, couldn’t see all of their love around me Guiding lights And those uphold me Lifting me with confidence With their hands on my shoulders Holding tight To bonds I’ve created That embrace me so graciously Their hands latched on my shoulders Spell my name, there’s the writing on the wall Tested phrase that denotes I’m senseless Can’t resign to the image in my mind Throw my trust into family solace Eyes that glare with a tablespoon of faith Restore me when I’m heading nowhere Rising star, I got fingers on arms Pulling me from beyond corruption Honest comfort, fall to rest my head Caught by all of my friends, they hold me so close No more room for lonely pursuits Reassuring consolation Guiding lights And those uphold me Lifting me with confidence With their hands on my shoulders Holding tight To bonds I’ve created That embrace me so graciously Their hands latched on my shoulders

It's unspeakable How blind I was To discomfort It was always right there Living in my friends Down They glide White knights Cashed their twisted checks The devil is in what's straight ahead Dead dream logic gave you faith The greatest lie I've ever been fed New year. New you. Foundational solitude Ball and chain, keep on you "It's loaded, but harmless" "Eat the ground", you monsters. "Keep it christian" Day-to-Day demons crash through your doors The devil is in what's straight ahead Dead dream logic gave you faith Peek under the blindfold If you're comfortable you're complicit Burn their flags Crush the clay

Everyday the past is miles more away. I know I’m running out of time, but least I’m sleeping soundly. In some ways, it feels like starting back at one, and mending holes was never fun, but better late than never. I’d sooner die than waste another minute feeling lonely. I know, I know, I know but I never listen. So it goes, so it goes, so it goes I guess I’ll keep on trying. Everyday I know myself a little more. It’s funny how the years can dull, and I was fading with them. In some ways I wish I’d known this all along, but now I’m writing down this song, so guess I learned my lesson. I know, I know, I know but I never listen. So it goes, so it goes, so it goes 'cus I just keep on trying.

Tied to a pole Your pretty sentiments Those golden fingertips Will be convinced to tap upon the rim of my glass Where hopeful words Or thoughts that cut and burn Swirl in a cloudy mix that will be pressed to your lips So hold your throat And do not let words choke What could I have to say now that could make this okay So pardoned wherever you may go Remember that you bring every part of yourself Your anger and your love are not opposed wholes But pieces that find equal station in your soul So do not what I do Only what I say I'm a hypocrite it's true It will all be okay So do not what I do Only what I say But I'm pretty tied to a pole So do not what I do Only what I say I'm hypocrite it's true I will tell you it will all be okay There is hope yet in life dont wish it all way Dont throw it down a well save it for me I would like to help but I'm tied to a pole And my sentiments tied to a pole are pretty now

The warranty is up It’s been 25 years and I’ve lost a lot of sleep I’ve rolled miles in my bed Slept side to side On my back on my belly Feet against the headrest I can’t ever make up my mind To lay my head or soul to rest So I sleep on it Again and again and again I have spent a third of a quarter of a century On a piece of foam that remembers me But at least I have a legacy I can’t ever make up my mind whether to lay my head or soul to rest

At the academy, Studying anatomy You was my fantasy, I was your calamity..... I'll stop the clocks each time you call You wasn't adding me, Is this how is has to be? Looking right past me ......Like I vanished with a spell Like I vanished with a spell Like I vanished by your spell Like I'm here all by myself Thought I charmed you, But you never made it clear But I lost you And you'll never reappear And my heart too Because I just want you near Which is magic Witches' magic Got your memory out the frame The city speaks of fame One day they'll know my name But I should walk away I'll have to wait till day Midnight blue in place A market place ...of illusion Thought I charmed you, But you never made it clear But I lost you And you'll never reappear And my heart too Because I just want you near Which is magic Witches' magic Witches’ magic

Don't get me wrong, I'm content with being an asshole and feeling like shit, but is it too much to ask for a change of scenery? Well, surely I can't be the only one with this problem. Do they talk about me when I'm not around? I know it’s stupid to think that I'm any more important than anyone else. If not me, who could I be? I can't tell if the world is big or small, but I hope it leaves my friends alone. I won't act like I'm not still traumatized. Just because we joke about it doesn't mean we're not kept up at night. Yeah, okay, I'm still not over it. We rest our heads on thinning pillows, I reflect on which friends I've seen crying. In the winter, I hoped I'd see you. In the summer, I wanted to die. Maybe that's just how I remember it. Sometimes I think that I miss you.

You come to And realize what’s unimaginable and what’s just a cartoon Unfazed by bold reasoning you walk on And know You’re not wrong You walk on and know that you’re not wrong You come to me Enough times to get the drill And revel in it still Because your relapse is something we’ve both gotten over So now we can look at each other And know Something’s going on These are your hands Press them in the mud These are your hands They’re there too in the earth These are you hands Press them in the mud These are your hands they’re there too I study your face I know nothing bad is gonna happen I study your face And I know you don’t wanna hurt me Now you’re naked And nothing bad is gonna happen You’re naked And no one wants to hurt you you’re
