Track Name: Tonight
you've done it again
you made me scared to be alive
you took away my appetite
and you're always doing fine

you've got it made
you've got a man to earn a wage
you've got a boy who will behave
and sing to you from center stage

i don't wanna die, i don't wanna die
i don't wanna die, i don't wanna die
tonight, tonight
but i don't wanna be alive, wanna be alive
i don't wanna be alive, wanna be alive
tonight, tonight

i'm at it again
i hit the town just to see a friend
we start to smile as we talk again
shit, i remember how this ends

we drift apart
doomed to fail right from the start
a lonely boy with a broken heart
a lonely boy, a lonely boy
Track Name: Loud As Screams
hope cuts through as you sing
awful songs about things
you never really cared about

ice, frozen rivers, and sighs
echoes abound through the night
things you'll never leave the house without

whispers sound as loud as screams
but you don't get it, you're not listening
if i'm unstable you'll know why
cause i've still gotta say goodbye every night
still gotta say goodbye every night

haunted by the same voice
like all our misguided choices
piled up in the street

caged, my heart is chained to the page
new words written every day
words i hope to never repeat

whispers sound as loud as screams
but you don't get it, you're not listening
if i'm unfaithful you'll know why
cause i've still gotta say goodbye every night
whispers sound as aloud as screams
but you don't get it, you're not listening
if i'm an asshole you'll know why
cause i've still gotta say goodbye every night
still gotta say goodbye every night
Track Name: Overexposed
take off your clothes and show me your scars
get comfortable with how ugly you are
'you're overexposed,' i over emote
'your passionate mind, it tends to impose

i wish i loved the songs that you wrote
but i can't help hearing that first line that you spoke
i wish i loved the songs that you wrote

so cover your ears, it's bound to get cold
not temperature-wise, just lacking in soul
'you're overexposed,' i over emote
'your overcommitment is bound to get old'

i wish i loved the songs that you wrote
but i can't help hearing that first line that you spoke
i wish i loved the songs that you wrote
i wish i loved the songs that you wrote
Track Name: Beautiful Girls
let's go out tonight
i need a decent conversation to make me feel alive
let's drink too much wine
i'm surrounded by these beautiful girls, but i feel numb inside
i'm surrounded by these beautiful girls, but i feel paralyzed

by beautiful girls
all these beautiful girls
i need a beautiful girl
to make me feel alive

let's waste all my time
recounting ways we used to argue and the times i dreamt of suicide
yes, i swear i'm fine
i've got a common sense of worthlessness that makes me want a better life
i've got a common sense of worthlessness that helps me get to sleep at night

beautiful girls
all these beautiful girls
i need a beautiful girl
tot make me feel alive
Track Name: Never Loved You
this is so regrettable
the way you look at me tonight
your words are so predictable
you're well-rehearsed, no oversight

please kill me, i'm hysterical
i've had a little too much wine
your voice is still unbearable
perhaps we'll meet some other time

i never loved you anyway

tell me something i don't know
i was lost eight months ago
tell me something i can say
god, don't look at me that way

i'll always love you anyway

fuck, i loved you anyway
Track Name: Warmth
you don't really know who you are
you don't really know who you want
but you know it's not me
you know it's not me

i'm the kind of nightmare who wants
another nightmare to just
take care of me
you can't take care of me

sing to me damn near anything
i just need to hear a voice that cares about me
sleep with me, i don't mean sexually
i just need to feel some warmth, another body
i just need to feel some warmth

i don't even know if i'll see you again
Track Name: End Of The Road
you'll be happy to know i'm still miserably alone
it's the end of the road
if you want it to hurt, you should have done it eight months ago
cause now i'm a stone
now i'm a stone
a stone
