Track Name: Bad Timing
Killing for time, but I'm just ill-adjusted
I never got much control over my wish anyway
You really have all of it under control
You must get tired having everything just so
Just your fate

And I'd tell you
What I could do
If I could do
What I want to

But I'll tell you
What I need to
And get through you
And get through you

I get the glance when I'm here every now and then
I get a chill every time I think what you said
So it goes
I never wanted this whole thing to happen
I was fine, I was gone, I was good then
I'm sure you know

And I'd tell you
What I could do
If I could to
What I want to

But I'll tell you
What I need to
And get through you
And get through you
Track Name: Don't Want to Live Here
She's just a girl I know
And if he's coming home
She'll never let him go

But when he goes away
He never thinks of it
He didn't want to stay

He never let her down
She went to visit him
Traveled through many towns

It was another dream
That kept her scared to find
Things weren't what they seemed

She fought it all alone
In another state
It was a different tone

It never meant to last
Scared to say the words
Or try to face the past
Track Name: Youth / Last Chance Before College
Saw the one for a moment
Didn't know, off she went
Felt myself get too fleeting
Glad that it's still repeating

I know what you will tell me
So it's not meant to be here
Letting go of your distance
Just to join the resistance
Track Name: Real
So we're here now
Sitting on the floor
There's a picture of you in my head
Thinking of my war that I gotta face now

But I can't think too logically
And just let it go now
But you're just better than I'll be
Doesn't matter now

Laying outside
Getting close to you was better than it should have
Has it hit yet?
Hope I'm getting through my apologies now

But I can't think so logically
And just let it go now
But you're just better than I'll be
Doesn't matter now
Track Name: Cremate Your Teammates
Sleeping in
Don't know where my friends are
Getting colder
But I can't get up so far

I'd like to see you
I'd like to see myself
And where I'm going
I think I'd hurt myself

I should've known now
I should've known you care
Getting older
Sucks if you're not there

I hate the seasons
I hate the days indoors
Wasting time
Waste as much before

Sleeping in
Don't know where my friends are
Getting colder
But I can't get up so far

I'd like to see them
I'd like to see myself
Wasting time
Waste too much myself
Track Name: Teenagers, Don't Quit
Killing time has never been so easy now
I got off thinking that no one will show me how
Further and further, I can't even do my own math
Sputtering sentences, I'm forging a broken path

She's coming back from what feels like an eternity
(Coming back again, they just don't quit)
She doesn't notice that she's void of apologies
(Coming back again, they just don't quit)

Forget your closest people, they are going to die
I never got the chance to get up and ask them why
But they'd just tell me to forget my systematics
I get the feeling that I'm too dramatic

I'm going back to school to show off what I don't have
(Coming back again, they just don't quit)
They'll just applaud me, give me pity on my behalf
(Coming back again, they just don't quit)

Supposed to try and care about what I could make
I never wanted anything that I could take
She left her house, left her things, left herself at the door
But it's just something that I felt was gonna come before

My friends will tell me that I'm way too gone to know my own fears
(Coming back again, they just don't quit)
But even then, I'd like to think that I'm beyond my years
(Coming back again, they just don't quit)
Track Name: Alone
Said I never once cared before
Maybe that much is true
Guess it's too late for everything
Nothing ever came true

Wasn't a man when I woke up today

Telling myself I'm not fine
There's really nothing here
Scaring myself til' I'm blind
Too all my different fears

Locked all alone in my room
It's really just a dream
Knowing that I can't assume
It's just not what it seems

Us kids never will go anywhere
That we try to go
Told it never would be so fair
But I don't want to know

Wasn't a man when I woke up today

Telling myself I'm not fine
There's really nothing here
Saving myself til' I'm blind
Too all my different fears

Locked all alone in my room
It's really just a dream
Knowing that I can't assume
It's just not what it seems
