Track Name: Get It Right
If I could paint you a picture
Of the carnival inside my head
The colors would fade and bleed off the page
Never amounting to anything
Anything

Oh

If I could write you a novel
The words would be backwards and upside down
A packet of unfinished chapters with multiple endings
That make no sense at all
They make no sense at all
They make no sense at all

I'm no good at speaking my mind
'Cause everything I want to say is tangled up and intertwined
I can never get it quite right
My tongue is tied, my mouth shut tight
A human cannonball with no filter

I can never get the words out right
I can never get it right
I can never get the words out right
I can never get it right

I'm no good at speaking my mind
'Cause everything I want to say is tangled up and intertwined
I can never get it quite right
My tongue is tied, my mouth shut tight
A human cannonball with no filter
Track Name: Full Metal Jacket
Bang went the gun in a flash of light
Your words pierced my skin like a full metal jacket, and I
Just lay on the ground, waiting for the air to fill my lungs
So I could say all the things that I've been dreaming of

Like how I'm a mess on the inside
And how I say all the wrong things at the wrong time
And still, everything is going just fine
You say I always get what I want, but not this time

This line in the sand is just a blur
I don't well with boundaries or border, no sir
So I just lay on the ground waiting for the final blow to come
So I could say all the things I know would make your stomach turn

Like how I'm a mess on the inside
And how I say all the wrong things at the wrong time
And still, everything is going just fine
You say I always get what I want, but not this time

And still, everything is going just fine
You say I always get what I want, but not this time
Track Name: Skin
Peel the skin
Salt the wound
Doesn't matter 'cause I'm immune
Break my heart
Break yours, too
Wait it out for a while and

See if I care

Slam the door
Break the chain
Change your hair
Stay the same
Buy and house and burn it down
Paint the town for a while and

See if I care

I don't care anymore
You make my skin crawl

Peel the skin
Salt the wound
Doesn't matter 'cause I'm immune
Break my heart
Break yours, too
Wait it out for a while and

See if I care
Track Name: Dark Matter
Close up those eyes
Draw all the blinds
You're just going through the motions of this life
Drown out the noise
Let the silence eat you up
The birds will pick your bones and turn your thoughts to dust

Dark matter in your head
Puts a shade on all that's good
It leaves a hole instead
Wouldn't stop it if I could

Close up those eyes
To the space inside
Let it consume you 'til there's nothing left to fight
Drown out the noise
Let the silence eat you up
The birds will pick your bones and turn your thoughts to dust

Dark matter in your head
Puts a shade on all that's good
It leaves a hole instead
Wouldn't stop it if I could
Track Name: Trainwreck
My legs are burning from running
Away from all my problems
But I think they're catching up to me
I can try to avoid them
For as long as possible before
They all implode into a big black hole

And I know it's only a matter of time before
Everything comes crashing down again
But I guess I'm still waiting on the world to end
Maybe it won't

I'm so sick and tired of being sick and tired
But I guess that's what being an adult is all about
Like paying bills on time and getting stuck in line
In every single fucking store just to buy it all again next week

And I know it's only a matter of time before
Everything comes crashing down again
But I guess I'm still waiting on the world to end
Maybe it won't

Everyone is giving up, laying waste to all that was
Getting old while the getting's good
I tell you what, I'm getting out
Start it all again, no more half-ass attempts
At least I can die trying

And I know it's only a matter of time before
Everything comes crashing down again
But I guess I'm still waiting on the world to end
Maybe it won't
