Track Name: Malignant
its been three whole days since I've been home, and I'm so scared ill face this all alone, your constant cries tear me down, it gets so bad i cant stand the sound

I better reach for something, because this fall might crush me, and I've been looking forward to this moment disappearing

I've been digging up your bones and piecing back together, everything I've lost and hoping for the better, home is where its hardest to keep my distance from the place where I fell apart and watched you grow malignant

I'm so sorry i watched you drown, I'm so sorry
Track Name: Jake
I hope that you can see me, I hope you know of all I've become,
I hope that when you see me, you realize all you have done wrong

friends grow apart sometimes its for the better, missing nights in your garage I wonder what went wrong, the summers came and went, we thought they'd never end, lighting fireworks in your back yard it was hard to watch you bend

you were someone with no place to call home, looking for someone to lean on, you got to heavy for me to carry, I cant pick you up

just an angry kid in a world that doesn't understand, I know it doesn't give a fuck about me, I said look on the bright side but you wouldn't even hear, because i don't care about you anymore

seven years of time we spent and everything we ever had was tossed aside for nothing

the world doesn't give a fuck about me, and that's something I wont forget
Track Name: Plot Holes
It didnt have to come to this, why'd it have to be you, cant read through the subtext, finding the plotholes i should have known

now i wait for this moment to come to its fitting end, let the credits roll so I can be myself again, I'm just a wanderer who cant seem to find the start, guess I lost control of all the things held in your heart

I wish that I could just fade away, let go of what I had and stop this endless chain, you started so long ago, but I guess I'll find out on my own

now I wait for this moment to come to its fitting end, let the credits roll so I can be myself again, I'm just a wanderer who cant seem to find the start, guess I lost control of all the things held in your heart

now I wait here, I wait here for nothing, because the hardest part is knowing that you're not trying
Track Name: Hatchet
I lay face down, prone to your attacks, the jokes you made at my expense they only made you laugh, the years were never enough and moving forward with out me only takes you ten steps back

there's no truth in your words, my friends are not my friends and I've taken the fall for all of your mistakes, I've cut down so many trees, this hatchet cant be buried, and when I'm gone, the sand will slip right through your finger tips

I gave you everything I had, its everything you took, I'm trying to move on but I'm caught up on your hook, the friendships that we made were easy to forget, snapped in to from all this weight

there's no truth in your words, my friends are not my friends and I've taken the fall for all of your mistakes, I've cut down so many trees, this hatchet cant be buried, and when I'm gone, the sand will slip right through your finger tips

I cut down so many trees this hatchet cant be buried, the sand will slip right through your finger tips
Track Name: Don't Pass To This Guy, He Sucks
I hope you enjoyed watching me burn, because the fire you started was your last concern, when i take a breath, my lungs fill with smoke

I will spit this out, before I choke, I don't have time to waste on such things I know as hate, I'll hold it inside, I'm sure you can relate, but believe you me, this isn't easy, I guess all things aside, I'm trying not to hide, because it's your misleading words that lead me here, stopped my heart and left me trembling in fear

so much time I've wasted, I guess I'll just let go, I'm moving in stride now to parts unknown

I'm alone
