There's a feeling that I know A bland repeat malaise A never ending grind of work Of chores and long week days A Monday morning state of mind The cycle starts again A life spent always waiting for The next weekend I'm gonna sleep until the afternoon Round up my friends and drink all night We wait so long and then it's gone so soon We'll use these nights to make it right It's finally Friday night again Come over and retreat To throw away the burdens of Your every other week The empty bottles on the lawn Priceless nights with friends With bloodshot eyes, a smile or two We'll take it back again I'm gonna sleep until the afternoon Round up my friends and drink all night We wait so long and then it's gone so soon We'll use these nights to make it right Sunday is a bummer, it's a dragger Minutes counting down now, even faster Nipping at your brain now is evil laughter Keep your head down, you're happy never after Sunday is a bummer, it's a dragger ('Til next week, and I'm gone) Minutes counting down now, even faster (One more week, sad so long) Nipping at your brain now is evil laughter ('Til next week, and I'm gone) Keep your head down, you're happy never after (One more week, sad so long) I'm gonna sleep until the afternoon Round up my friends and drink all night We wait so long and then it's gone so soon (Sunday is a bummer it's a dragger) (Minutes counting down now, even faster) We'll use these nights to make it right (Nipping at your brain now is evil laughter) (Keep your head down, you're happy never after) Sunday is a bummer, it's a dragger ('Til next week, and I'm gone) (We'll make it right) Minutes counting down now, even faster (One more week, sad so long) (We'll make it right) Nipping at your brain now is evil laughter ('Til next week, and I'm gone) (We'll make it right) Keep your head down, you're happy never after (One more week, sad so long) (We'll make it right) Sunday is a bummer, it's a dragger ('Til next week, and I'm gone) (We'll make it right) Minutes counting down now, even faster (One more week, sad so long) (We'll make it right) Nipping at your brain now is evil laughter ('Til next week, and I'm gone) (We'll make it right) Keep your head down, you're happy never after (One more week, sad so long) (We'll make it right)

My hand shakes, my heart beats, I'm freaking Future sneaks up on me, and I'm freaking My family looks up to, up to me I'm a zero, no hero, and I'm thinking Why don't I throw it away Everything is always the same You were down and said that I'd be here I'm here now Why don't I just throw it away My thoughts make me rethink sanity My sickness, my mishaps consume me Follow your gut instinct instinctly Bad choices are now my specialty Why don't I throw it away Everything is always the same You were down and said that I'd be here I'm here now Why don't I just throw it away Stop waiting for tomorrow 'Cause tomorrow never comes It's always the next day No matter what you say 'Cause tomorrow never comes And if you're asking if I'd stay Why don't I throw it away Everything is always the same Why don't I throw it away Everything is always the same You were down and said that I'd be here I'm here now Why don't I just throw it away

Calling Off 03:11
Sun shines in my window But I don't wanna go, no not at all So, I call off sick to my dumb boss And go get drunk with Kevin Cross And there's no work today Free to be hanging around With a brown paper bag of Fireball We'll be wasting our time With whatever we can think of But we're not gonna waste it at a job And now we're checking out Our favorite strip club... the day shift is rough So, we head to the grocery store, it's on We're gonna hit on soccer moms And there's no work today Free to be hanging around With a brown paper bag of Jameson We'll be wasting our time With whatever we can think of But we're not gonna waste it at a job And there's no work today Free to be hanging around With a brown paper bag We'll be wasting our time With whatever we can think of But we're not gonna waste it at a job

The Victim 03:48
Your state of denial Leaves this all a mess Two faces, one smile Say hello, you're heartless at best What did you want to say to me? You play the victim like a pro I'm drowning in all the subtlety You pass the blame to hide your own Say what you fucking mean So I'll take the high road No need to pretend You take the goodbye road Say so long to friends 'til the end What did you want to say to me? You play the victim like a pro I'm drowning in all the subtlety You pass the blame to hide your own Say what you fucking mean What did you want to say to me? You play the victim like a pro I'm drowning in all the subtlety You pass the blame to hide your own Say what you fucking mean

One for the money, two for the kill Step into the light and you start to feel a chill They gave us all a fright The streets turn black and the freaks come out You were having confidence, but now you have your doubts It's gonna be a long night Don't hold your breath It only gets worse from here Don't hold your breath (Your fucking breath!) In comes your deepest fear Lo and behold This is the nightmare that you've been dreaming for You don't ever want to wake up You're trapped in hell this time This time I don't ever wanna wake up I don't ever wanna wake up I don't ever wanna wake up I don't ever want to... I don't ever wanna wake up I don't ever wanna wake up I don't ever wanna wake up I don't ever want to... I don't ever wanna wake up I don't ever wanna wake up I don't ever wanna wake up I don't ever want to...

Left Sunk In 02:47
By now I should've known better But I can't wrap my head around the numbers And I must say, when things are getting better It's not ok when it turns into the latter I know I'm not that much excitement But I'm not quite boring and I'm not quite nothing Don't settle for less, 'cause less is not a bargain You'll be left sunk in, you'll be left sunk in (Let's go!) Wishful thinking is more than just a burden It's like picking up pieces of a fucked up puzzle Though the pieces fit, they don't mean shit And when the puzzles complete, we'll all just quit I know I'm not that much excitement But I'm not quite boring and I'm not quite nothing Don't settle for less, 'cause less is not a bargain You'll be left sunk in, you'll be left sunk in I know I'm not that much excitement But I'm not quite boring and I'm not quite nothing Don't settle for less, 'cause less is not a bargain You'll be left sunk in, you'll be left sunk in Hey baby, I'm a sinking ship Don't step off that dock, don't even think of it Because I'm not worth it, I'm not quite ready for this So just go ahead and get your fix I know I'm not that much excitement But I'm not quite boring and I'm not quite nothing Don't settle for less, 'cause less is not a bargain You'll be left sunk in, you'll be left sunk in (Let's go!) I know I'm not that much excitement But I'm not quite boring and I'm not quite nothing Don't settle for less, 'cause less is not a bargain You'll be left sunk in, you'll be left sunk in I know I'm not that much excitement But I'm not quite boring and I'm not quite nothing Don't settle for less, 'cause less is not a bargain You'll be left sunk in, you'll be left sunk in I know I'm not that much excitement But I'm not quite boring and I'm not quite nothing Don't settle for less, 'cause less is not a bargain You'll be left sunk in, you'll be left sunk in

So it seems you've got lots to say But I can't deal with your shit today, no way When you open your mouth, you lie I can't stand you, I won't deny, goodbye I tried so hard to play along (Against my will to carry on) Let you keep thinking that you're never wrong But now I'll tell it true straight to your face It's time to put you in your place Well you manipulate everyone You get your way and I come undone, and I'm stunned But I'm through, it won't work on me I'll expose your hypocrisy, you'll see I tried so hard to play along (Against my will to carry on) Let you keep thinking that you're never wrong But now I'll tell it true straight to your face It's time to put you in your place I can't deal with your shit today, no way

A heart that was relieved To walk a path that's preconceived There's a will to fight, but to fight that will's more safe To follow what is known But to feel the marrow missing from the bones And keep a heart resigned Never seeing what it would find The plans I made before you I knew it all, but didn't know myself There's unknown road ahead But I won't turn back 'Cause that would be the way it was before I won't be the way I was before A heart that was surprised To find a path can be revised There's a need to win, to not just survive, to belong A different kind of fear To embrace a future brighter than it's clear To let go what I knew For waking up next to you The plans I made before you I knew it all, but didn't know myself There's unknown road ahead But I won't turn back 'Cause that would be the way it was before I won't be the way I was before

No Repair 04:08
Breathe before you say the wrong thing Don't just spit out words Tell the world all will be ok Sharing every sad story on Earth Social media stories of death Filling up your wall The new leaves turn for the worst And the ones holding hands Will be the ones in command I'm finally there, past the point of no repair It's cold out there, past the point of no repair I sit and stare, past the point of no repair Past the point of no repair Shake your head to stir your thoughts Please just don't give in They say the best is yet to come But I think they got it wrong I know they got it wrong I'm finally there, past the point of no repair It's cold out there, past the point of no repair I sit and stare, past the point of no repair Past the point of no repair I'm finally there, past the point of no repair It's cold out there, past the point of no repair I sit and stare, past the point of no repair Past the point of no repair

The Bend 04:48
Forget about the problems of our yesterday I just wanna get drunk 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 get drunk 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 is 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 and 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 get drunk 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 get drunk 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 get drunk 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

Land Mines 03:40
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 (Holy fucking shit!) 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
