Track Name: Maybe
And I know
You’re getting tired of my cold eyes
And I don’t wanna say goodbye
But it seems like it’s the only way that’s left

But hey maybe I’ll see you around
In another world
Right now I’m kind of stuck in a different point of view

Maybe were just meant for another time
Baby you and I
It’s not that I don’t love you I’m just sick of hit and run
Maybe we’re just cursed with this state of mind
And I’m sick and tired of trying
To cram us into your busy life

And I know
You’re getting tired of my cold eyes
And I don’t wanna say goodbye
But it seems like it’s the only way that’s left
Track Name: POSSE
Oh so here we go again
Another problem starting, I'm starring
You should really get going
Because this problem it is overdue
I've got a lot of thoughts running
Inside me, tongue tied-me
you should really get going
Cause this time I don’t know what to do

Watch me, Succeed
I don't need your fucking money
Chose them, left me
I don't need to be apart of your posse

Oh so here it comes again
Another heartbreaking, I’m shaking
Do just what you’re told
Or these things will come back to haunt you
I’ve got a lot of friends running
Beside me, behind me
You should really get going
Cause this time they know just what to do


Oh so here we go again x4
Track Name: Better Off Alone
I know I am better off alone
Each time I try it often has it's toll
We could be a better part of life
But that's something meant for another time

Hold on to what you have left
You never know when it will be the last thing you kept
Swept away as if it were at sea
I know my secrets are better kept with me

Let's go and get so far away
So far from the things that stand in our way
Who knows how we will get home
I don’t know
That doesn't matter we just need to be alone

Can I be enough for just one time
If you try, you can see this from my side
Walk away, walk away from me
See the kind of person you turn out to be

Cuz I’ve been stumbling, tumbling
Trying to find some peace of mind
If I had you with me maybe id stop this demise
Without you I’m a journey with no destination
Drop the act baby, wont you stop this hesitation
You’ve seen me fumbling, crumbling
Like the love that we had
The hatter in Alice wasn’t half as mad
You better catch me quickly before I slip away
Counting all the reasons that you should stay
Track Name: Numb
I don’t deserve anything
Except the marks you left on my skin
You took everything
And left me bleeding
I know I moved on first and I’m glad you caught up
But lately I’ve been feeling runner up

Things are going great and I couldn’t be happier
I wish it didn’t break my heart that you feel the same

Numb, numb, numb
I cant feel anything
Numb numb numb
Look at what you’ve done
You’ve gotta push the pain away
Lock it far far away
Never let it out to never let it fade
Numb numb numb
Look at what we’ve done
We’ve locked our own hearts away

I know what everyone’s been thinking
Hiding pain
In thoughts drifting high
I know I found a new girl, and she treats me like I should
And I’ve realized you’re not the one

Things are going great and I couldn’t be happier
It doesn’t break my heart that you feel the same

It's never fun to feel alone
In this great big wide world
So many thoughts stuck in my mind
So much to do such little time
Em, G, C
Ain’t this life a self-fulfilled tragedy
Gotta put a nice spin on a heartbroken beat
Track Name: Weight of the World
Ill pretend it doesn’t hurt while you scream in pain
So I can drown in my sorrow while you walk away
Where did it go why didn’t you stay
When you said you were leaving I let you leave this place

Late nights, sad thoughts
Though nothing's really wrong
The weight of the world got caught
On my shoulders

Take time, back off
I need some space to breathe
The weight of the world got caught
On my shoulders

Sometimes it takes a while to let people in
We all make the same mistakes, just a different sin
So many thoughts stuck in my mind
So much to do such little time
Track Name: Things Are Falling Apart
i dont have the time to discuss these things with you
my mind is full of desires and things that i aspire to do
I know you think i’ll add up to nothing, nothing as great as you
i think i’m just apprecciating
everything i can’t do

I don’t have the time to play these games with you
but pour me some more wine and i’ll see what i can do
I wish i could redesign the way you come to my mind
but i’m stuck in frantic pantomime of my true feelings about you

Do you have a minute
i just really haven’t felt it
in the last few weeks that we talked
and my mind is spinning
take me back to the beginning
when all we’d do is swing in the park

things are falling apart
but i’ll be ok
you’re fucking with my mind
but you're not here to stay
I’ve gotten used to the passion
manifested in my veins
unfortunately its for you
