Track Name: Till You Find Out (You Need It)
I'm stuck in a scene
They won't let me off
But it's nothing to me
It's really nothing at all

Been waiting for bed
Now they won't let me sleep
They say it's gone to my head
My best friend bets
Guess we'll see
Think it's happening again

While the wait runs hot
And the kettles out of steam
When you find out you're dreaming, oh!

And it all keeps falling down
And a loss ain't that important
Till you find out you need it
Oh, it all keeps falling down
It might save you a little trouble
If you'd just accept you're greedy
You're just upset
You're fleeing

But you can't run cause it's coming for you now

Still the wait runs hot...
And the kettle's out of steam
When all the rest's made up
Do we even have out reasons
And you can't run cause it's coming for you
You can't run cause he's coming for you
And you can't run cause we're coming for you now

I'm stuck in a scene
They won't let me off
But it's nothing to me
It's really nothing at all
Track Name: Body Language
¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Fell asleep on the streets
Been roaming round
Just so you know
Found a piece of the puzzle(@) least.
That somewhat counts
I guess it goes to show

It's like you're lying in a bed
I think I'm lyin' on my couch
Who could believe all of those lines he read
Who could believe that lying mouth?

You just don't understand my body language
something you'd never heard
the only difference is that I don't need to say it slower
It's like the scene is dead
And all our friends are gone
It's like there's no one left
What I just don't quite get is
( but I just don't quite get it)
If talks so cheap
Then why's it feel like you're running out
Track Name: Nervous Wreck
Look like a nervous wreck

Look like a nervous wreck
you're feeling that much older?
You always keeping your head
Down when you're sitting in the corner

why not just be yourself
you're only like a quarter
to be or not to be
depends on how you want it
it's not as bad as they make it out…..

poured that bottle straight down the drain of your mouth
Couldn't help myself, Felt I had to help you out
Feeling like a wreck
Watched you accept it
And now I feel I can't do any/{thing}
(/*can't do )anything about it now

You look like a nervous wreck
That's what you really wanted?

when what You need's still not nearly enough x5

You better watch your step
You getting out of order
And if it's sink or swim
They say the water's colder
The deeper you get when your sinking down

You better hold your breath
You know we're far from shore &
It's probably sink or swim
I bet the water's colder
The deeper you get when your sinking down

Look like a nervous wreck
you're feeling that much older?
You always keeping your head
Down when you're sitting in the corner

Look like a nervous wreck
Track Name: All My Friends Are...
Wide awake can't get no sleep
My shirt is soaked and so are my sheets
We had the time
I lacked the need
Now yesterday's hollerin' back at me
Still living in the past it seems
But all my friends are aging

Hanging a clothes line
Hoping my clothes dry
Oh what a week
Remember my old ride
styling along side
Dope in the seat
That shit's just too much work

I'd rather chill, just kicking' back
Then meet a sneak hid in the grass
Police oh please don't make me laugh

I'm wanted…..

Outside the walls
where all the grass' growin' taller than me
Smoking a Marlboro
I know it's bad, though I need it to be
That shit still calms my nerves

And though I'm fiening for a pack
(It's helped in keeping me on track)
Please feed me something to relax
I want it…..

Wide awake can't get no sleep
My shirt is soaked and so are my sheets
We had the time
I lacked the need
Now yesterday's hollerin' back at me
Still living in the past it seems
But all my friends are aging

They say you're only getting older
And the deeper you swim
Only get's colder by the second (hand)
skins been wrinkling
still been thinking of bigger tasks
to tell the truth
don't think it'll last
least long enough
to get it back
You're Not getting any younger

(They say you're only getting older)
And the deeper you swim
Only get's colder by the second
Colder by the second
older by the second hand

Still living in the past it seems
But all my friends are aging
Wide awake can't get no sleep
My shirt is soaked and so are my sheets
We had the time
I lacked the need
Now yesterday's hollerin' back at me
Track Name: What I Started
It's time to take back
Take back what I started
Since my whole worlds caving in
Makes my stomach sick to think that it could go to waste
When you can't just walk away that easy
Like when caught up with the cops
or tangled in a knot don't let it go to waste

Back where I left off
Cause in the midst somewhere in between all this time we needed off
There's something we lacked
Just can't put my finger on it
Chasing the cash it seems is all
we needed, oh..............................but now it's time to take back
Track Name: Knowitall
You know just where it starts
And where we'll end
Before it even stops
You know
You know it all

Just take the contract and burn it to ashes
Since you can't admit you're wrong
Guess when agreements are built on a handshake
That's a lousy way to roll
Hold back
I'm tired of thinking
Slow down
It still takes more than just the average
To hold things back
If one can't admit they're wrong

You know just where it starts
And where we'll end
Before it even stops
You know
You know it all
And know this rhythm
It's what it is
No wonder why your
Hat don't fitcha now
You know it all

Took the contract and burned it to ashes
Cause you can't admit you're wrong
Guess when agreements are built on a handshake
Just a lousy way to roll

That's a lousy way to roll
If one can't admit
It still takes more than just the average heart
To hold things back
When you can't admit you're wrong

You know just where it starts
And where we'll end
Before it even stops
You know
You know it all
And know this rhythm
It's what it is
No wonder why your
Hat don't fitcha now
You know it all
