Track Name: The One Where You Walked Me Home
I forgot to mention
I love the way you listen to me ramble on
About life and love
And my dreams of
Taking back all the things that I’ve ever done
Like being a good person
Or having a good heart
As you know it didn’t get me anywhere

And as you’re talking to your friends
I’m thinking of ways to talk to you
Smart remarks and other quotes
So that I know I’m not alone
There’s a danger in my footsteps
But it didn’t matter to me
Cause all you are is all I wanna be.

I’m giving it my all
I guess I’ve had too much to drink
Thanks again for all the laughs
But I’m pretty sure I know how this ends
And as you’re heading to the door
I hear you rushing up to me
You said, “let’s go, I’m getting sleepy”

Just like you said
Nothing ever stays
They’ll turn away like they always do
But not tonight
Cause things are different
So here’s to us for pulling through

I’ve been waiting for a night like this
Where I’m not afraid to speak
There’s 30 people hear tonight
And I’ll only talk to you
And through the midst of everything we said
I know we’ll just forget
And the best part of the night is I don’t remember how we fell asleep

I’ve been waiting for a night like this
Where I’m not afraid to speak
There’s 30 people hear tonight
And I’ll only talk to you
And through the midst of all the shit we said
I know we’ll just forget
And the best part of the night is I don’t remember how we fell asleep

And the best part of the night is I don’t remember how we fell asleep
Track Name: Stop Pacing
I got two fingers
They fit perfectly down my throat
I’m burning inside
I need to cool down
I know what I’ll do
I’ll just drink until I can’t see straight
I’m talking to loud
I need to calm down

I got a B on a test I can’t remember
I’ll slither right down your throat
It’s getting easier to be a member
Of this hyper-realistic joke
Now we’re crying on the floor trying to remember
When did life get so hard on you and me

Every single time I wake up
I start falling straight to pieces
Every single time I fall asleep
I wake up a bit more anxious

Cause you try so hard to gain a few
But you can’t stop pacing
Stop pacing

You don’t got a cell phone
So I don’t know where you’ve been living
So I stalk your mother’s facebook page
To see if you’re still breathing
Her last post
Of you was late late late July
Man you looked good
You got your hair cut short
You had that same look in your eye

The night you said I could be anything
You were on your third klonopin
You passed out before I had even left
Fast forward now
I’m in my room
I’m trying really fucking hard not to think of you
But it’s difficult cause I don’t know if you’re
Dead

Every single time I wake up
I start falling straight to pieces
Every single time I fall asleep
I wake up a bit more anxious

Cause you try so hard to gain a few
I can’t stop pacing
Sometimes I don’t know what to do
I can’t stop pacing
I’m stuck in your complacency
I can’t stop pacing
My mother tells me constantly
To just stop pacing

Stop pacing
Track Name: Villains/Victims
Do you think that you could be yourself?
For just this moment
Do you think that you could put it out?
Or just stand in the back light

Cause I’ve been trying to be someone else
For about 4 years now
Smoking loud
I’m in my head
I’m feeling normal

These nights get shorter
Every time I watch you fall asleep
These holes swallow my teeth

Cause you don’t know how I feel
These days
Cause you’re too busy hating my guts
Talking shit to my best friends
About how I was never enough

I may be the villain
But you’re playing the victim
Go out
Please do something
Don’t just sit and pretend and just wish
You were somewhere else

I’m gonna trip all over all these words
I’ll loose my footing
The weed has got me paralyzed
Now I feel stupid
It’s got me breathing quick these days
I miss my adolescence
Am I gonna turn out like my dad?
I don’t think that’s a bad thing

For now I’m drinking
Searching for the words to calm you down
As I take a look around
There’s not a place I’d rather be

Cause you know how I feel
These days
When the pressure’s centered in my guts
And I hate the man I am
When I know that I’m making it up

Cause we’re all victims in this
World of villains
But we got each other
And with you right there I don’t need
Nothin
Track Name: Mahler's 20th
God dammit, I lost my focus
It’s way too loud in here
I guess I should get some air
Then maybe you and I could just laugh at how
David keeps repeating the same damn stories
Like how he learned to lose you and feel fine
Or how he
Never forgave himself for letting you go
It’s a small price to pay
It’s just something that happens
But I know you’re doing well and it’s all in the past now

Is it to soon to say I like you a lot?
Oh god
There I go putting my foot in my mouth
Well at least there’s some progress
Is this really progress?
Or am I holding onto shit that will all go away?

I’m trying really hard to just let it go
You should see
The way I look at you
You’d never believe me when I say that I like you
Oh god, I think I like you
Guess we’re back to square one
And there’s no way out

I don’t care about anything other than this
We can talk about it when we’re both alright
There’s a beauty in our slurring of words
And if this night goes to shit
I won’t think anything of it
Track Name: Where The Hell's The Bus At?
The seven bus is late again
I’m getting tired of
Standing in this bone chilling wind
My Joints are creaking
Foundations weakening
Got here early to get nowhere fast

The seven bus is late again
It’s getting colder
And the rain is picking up
I’m getting tired of this bullshit wait
Woke up on time for once
Just to play pretend
And end up late.

The seven bus is late again
Checked my phone tried to catch
The 1:23
All I caught are my hand
Jammed into my pockets
Shivering
From the base of my bones to the tips of my teeth

Well fuck
Guess I’m not seeing you tonight
Well damn
Guess I'll just stay home inside.
Well shit
Guess this is where we end
Or is it?
Do you think that you could just come over?
Track Name: Back To January
I know you said
You wanted to be alone tonight
But the question is
Did we ever take this town
Like you wanted to?

And I’m scared to death that this might be wrong
To a life of conversations cut too short
While our heads are a mess

And we’ll run in circles again
With this life we lead
Would you change it instead?
‘Cause I’m running out of time
And you’re safe in your bed

With nothing left to do but let love take its time
But I’ll miss the laugh I had to leave behind
And you’ll speak of me in anecdotes that you wrote yourself
We’ll pretend we’re still friends and live our lives again

So I’ll wait all night for you to come around
And I’ll make believe that everything will be just fine
