I'm trying not to try so hard I'm trying not to overthink I'm trying not to care I'm trying to be fair to me I'm sick of being sick to death I'm sick of how it's not so fun anymore I'm sick of how we are Get the fuck out of my car, we're done You had me at first sight You lost me at never by my side You had me at hello You lost me at hell no I used to never used to be I used to feel on top of the world I used to have pride I used to never hide from you I hate it how you hate my friends I hate it when you roll your eyes I hate the way it hurts Stop wearing all my shirts, we're done You had me at first sight You lost me at never by my side You had me at hello You lost me at hell no You had me at first sight You lost me at never by my side You had me at hello You lost me at hell no Hell no, hell no, hell no

Land Mines 03:11
Close the bar, 3 o'clock in the street Drunken sprinting will lead to defeat Oh no, sticks and stones again You had to go but I didn't believe When you said it was you, never me Oh no, now I'm single again I'm dodging land mines, I'm dodging land mines again I'm dodging land mines, I'm dodging land mines I'm dodging land mines, I'm dodging land mines again I'm dodging land mines, I'm dodging land mines I'm dodging land mines, I'm dodging land mines again I'm dodging land mines, I'm dodging land mines I'm dodging land mines, I'm dodging land mines again I'm dodging land mines, I'm dodging land mines Dressed to kill for a date, such a find Too burned out to remember what time Oh no, forgot my wallet again Up all night, spent my rent at the bar Late for work, locked my keys in my car Oh no, I'm hungover again I'm dodging land mines, I'm dodging land mines again I'm dodging land mines, I'm dodging land mines I'm dodging land mines, I'm dodging land mines again I'm dodging land mines, I'm dodging land mines I'm dodging land mines, I'm dodging land mines again I'm dodging land mines, I'm dodging land mines I'm dodging land mines, I'm dodging land mines again I'm dodging land mines, I'm dodging land mines I'm dodging land mines, I'm dodging land mines again I'm dodging land mines, I'm dodging land mines I'm dodging land mines, I'm dodging land mines again I'm dodging land mines, I'm dodging land mines I'm dodging land mines, I'm dodging land mines again I'm dodging land mines, I'm dodging land mines I'm dodging land mines, I'm dodging land mines again I'm dodging land mines, I'm dodging land mines

The Bend 04:28
Forget about the problems of our yesterday I just wanna hang out with my friends She was just a girl that you loved yesterday Better days are just around the bend Can you feel the heat? Can you fill up the spaces? The who, what, and where? The people and places? The sun's coming up, but I'm feeling down All my friends don't want me around If I'm not perfect you can fill in the blanks The words bundle up and they fill up the tanks The tank's on full, but I'm feeling empty And even if you're here, you've already left me Smoke and mirrors, finally finding I was wrong Strike a match and let it burn Lost in the illusion in the corners of my head Waiting out the storm of everything unsaid Forget about the problems of our yesterday I just wanna hang out with my friends She was just a girl that you loved yesterday Better days are just around the bend Better days are just around the bend And I don't understand what the point of the race And I can't keep up, can't go through the paces Of a life on the run, so I'm turning in I need a new start, don't know where to begin I've never been the type to care where I fall Never wanted to compete, never answered the call So can you tell me why I'm always feeling this way? Soaking up another loss at the end of the day? Smoke and mirrors, finally finding I was wrong Strike a match and let it burn Lost in the illusion in the corners of my head Waiting out the storm of everything unsaid Forget about the problems of our yesterday I just wanna hang out with my friends She was just a girl that you loved yesterday Better days are just around the bend Better days are just around the bend Time and time again We lose sight of what we know Like the fire within the smoke (Time and time again) Somehow we got off track yesterday Waiting for each today to end (We lose sight of what we know) Swallow the lump in your throat, it's ok (Like the fire within the smoke) Tomorrow's around the bend Forget about the problems of our yesterday I just wanna hang out with my friends She was just a girl that you loved yesterday Better days are just around the bend Forget about the problems of our yesterday I just wanna hang out with my friends She was just a girl that you loved yesterday Better days are just around the bend Better days are just around the bend

I can sense your eyes are watching with every step I take You tear off the bandage to watch the blood escape There is no rhyme or reason for the pain inside Words are like razors that drag in my mind In the end I fought to breathe And found that life is worse than dying Better off dead Better off dead I wish I had the guts to drop you like a habit Your needle tunnels deep, I'm crippled like an addict You say you don't want chaos, then lit up every fuse All organs start to fail from cauterizing you In the end I fought to breathe And found that life is worse than dying Better off dead Better off dead In the end I fought to breathe And found that life is worse than dying Better off dead In the end I fought to breathe And found that life is worse than dying Better off dead In the end I fought to breathe And found that life is worse than dying Better off dead Better off dead

Scary Movie 03:35
Skin crawling, scared of my shadow Tree branches scratching the window No one home but me and the TV Wanna run, they're coming to get me Too much of Freddy and Jason I hear a voice from the basement Cool breath, I pull up the blanket Try acting tough, I can't fake it Stayed in Friday night, what a mistake Movie monsters are too much to take Foul creatures, zombies, and demons No one to hear as I'm screaming Vampires creep to my bedroom Fangs pierce my neck, I'll be one soon Consumed by nightmares of dark things Wake up in terror as the phone rings I'm scared of scary movies I'm jumping when the phone rings Call waiting is a killer Hold on I'm scared of scary movies I'm jumping when the phone rings Call waiting is a killer Hold on I'm scared of scary movies I'm jumping when the phone rings Call waiting is a killer Hold on I'm scared of scary movies I'm jumping when the phone rings Call waiting is a killer Hold on

Not Today 02:46
Hold up your head, it's no walk in the park You're reaching out, but you're missing the mark Passion and drive aren't a part of the scene Give up your dreams for the easier the things Swallow your pride just to get out of bed 9 to 5 'til you're sick in the head I try to sleep, but I toss and I turn Every mistake is a lesson to learn, and... This can't be all we are Sun up on another day This ugly world is pretty lame This can't be growing up Sun down, it's all the same Maybe someday soon we'll make a change But not today Motivation slipping through your hands Wake up in time to do it over again What is the goal if you stop and you think? Hollow at best 'til the end of the week Stomach turning, failing, chasing regrets You're dying slow and you're drowning in debt Wasting time, still trying to cope The ends meet at the end of the road, and... This can't be all we are Sun up on another day This ugly world is pretty lame This can't be growing up Sun down, it's all the same Maybe someday soon we'll make a change But not today Another day is pretty lame We'll make a change But not today

Mix Tape 03:07
I made, I made you a mix tape Which sold in my yard sale You said it was dumb I played one of those MASH games We're married with five kids You said I was scum All of my Pogs and comics and clothes All hang on a rack My mom made a buck from selling my bike The tires we flat It didn't matter that I spent a week Perfecting your songs The best songs of all time You hated them all I made, I made you a mix tape Which sold in my yard sale You said it was dumb I have gym class with your brother He said that you're over me I'm not what you need I heard you got a new boyfriend Take him to the park And get stung by a bee All my Ninja Turtles and posters and Legos And Barbies and Pez Out with the old and in with the new But you're stuck in my head It didn't matter that I spent a week Perfecting the mix The best songs of all time You said they were shit I made, I made you a mix tape Which sold in my yard sale You said it was dumb I made, I made you a mix tape Which sold in my yard sale You said it was dumb
