Track Name: Better Living Through Chemistry
I can't remember a goddamn thing
Lyrics, names & places I've been

Is it the short attention span?
Or is it the pills i take to start my day?

C'est la vie sweet memories
The short, and long, and in-between
C'est la vie, what's left of me?

Misplaced chords, conversations & faces
Prescribed handfuls of mind erasers

Casting shadows on black walls
Fuck, I forgot to sing... the sing-along

Remind me. Rewind me.
To all the times we had.

Design me. Define me.
I'm built by circumstance.
Track Name: Life
Find yourself along in an empty house
Skipping meals, sinking into a lonely couch

It's just you a remote & re-run TV
The leak in your ceiling starting caving in

All your fears have been realized
Take a train to your job, you're in bed by 9

You gave up your hobbies months ago
Put yourself under a microscope

It's all magnified, it's all elevated
See myself getting fat & lazy
Track marks in these carpets tell no lie

What a life. You call this life?
It's a strife and i'm to blame
What a god damn mess i've made

What a life. What a joke.
Can't change the channel, no remote
This is my reality

All your fears have been realized
Take a train to your job, you're in bed by 9

You gave up your hobbies years ago
and put yourself under a microscope
Track Name: Explosions in This Guy
Painted myself in the corner
Might as well paint myself pretty

So if I self destruct, are you coming with me?
I know things haven't changed at all

As long as I'm alive, the town is painted red
So dig a deeper grave and jump right in
Don't burn out on me now
Light the fuse & run, 5.4.3.2.1

Pardon me while I explode
I self destruct
Track Name: Loner
So far from everything I know
But the bottle is only so deep
So how low can I go

It’s a race to the bottom of 12oz of hope
And all I’ve got is this beer that I hold
So I choke, yeah I choke

Just a weirdo in the corner
And there’s no one here for me
A lonely tree within a forest,
Just the splinters and a carcass
My leaves are all dying
Firewood to be burned
Should have known I’d be a loner,
Just a boat without a motor

This bottle is mine
Empty as defined
So raise a glass to me
Free & Lonely

Walk from everything I know
But the rope is only so long
So how far can I fall
It's a race to the bottom of a Jack & coke
Sink to the bottom with my anchor in tow
So I choke, Yeah I choke
Track Name: Collateral
Are you keeping tabs?
Are you keeping count?
Is it coming from your heart[beat]?
because I have my doubts.

What'd you call it a charity? Feels collateral
You've got those claws in me. Yeah, they're grabbing hold
Grab on like a leech. Yeah, it's getting old
But you've got indemnity, so I'll be the host

Are we settled up?
Is it even score?
Are you looking for something more?

It's collateral
