Track Name: Kitchen Sink
I wanna be something that my mother’s proud of
Never had a reason to be quite too proud of me

You need to adjust your grip upon my wrists as if
I’m to be trusted, or amount to anything

I know I drained her away
I watched us wither and decay

I don’t wanna be alone
But sometimes I have to
We make our problems sound like jokes
Because sometimes we have to
Track Name: Run Around
You like to see me run around
Run around
See me run around
Run around

Just when you think it’s safe to come home for a change
You get locked up for three whole days inside a cold, lonely, and sad dark cave
Couldn’t move the rock from your way
You died for my sins when I committed all of mine just yesterday

You like to see me run around
Run around
See me run around
Run around

He said “I don’t believe in luck anymore”
He said, “I don’t believe in God,
But I believe in a higher power that says,
I am powerless”

You like to see me run around
Run around
See me run around
Run around

You like to see me run around
Track Name: Ayúdame!
I believe we’re wasting all our time
We compromise so often
I think it’s time to draw the line

I believe you’re faking all your signs
Try not forcing your inflection
Try life without your scripted lines

They can’t remember what they felt, or what they felt it for
They can’t remember what they felt, or what they felt before

There’s only so many game shows I can watch
Before my eyeballs start to rot
And my brain wastes away
And I cannot muster the common sense to find something to say

To say, or do
I can’t believe you choose
Problems only skin deep
Over something like me

You say you lose
But in reality you choose to abuse
The powers I regret
Bestowing upon you

Why do I always lose?

They can’t remember what they felt, or what they felt it for
They can’t remember what they felt, or what they felt before

I think it’s time I’m reminded who I am
There’s a pessimist living in my head
Temperamental, unguided, and he says
“If this is how karma works, then we’re all dead”
Track Name: Olive Garden Pt. 2
I, for one accept the loss
I always act like a child, you are the cause
A concrete contract in mind and you’re just the clause
I cannot stand what I’m doing to me

Why can’t I shake this?
We’re just dying to relax

It’s funny how things work that way

Was I everything you needed in an idol?
Was I the best big brother that I could’ve been?
I gave you everything you needed in the end
And it still became the end

I gave you everything you needed in an idol
Was I the best big brother that I could've been?
I gave you everything you needed in the end
And it still became the end
Track Name: Resolution Phase
You're the reason I sleep at night
I'm trying to avoid what's real in my life
You won't sleep next to me
You're trying to experience reality

I have done that
The feelings just get worse
The days roll on and on
My days roll on and on

I've got seventeen reasons why
The stories in my head seem to collide
With what actually occurs
You envy my fantasies
But they're just a curse

You're the reason I sleep at night
I'm trying to avoid what's real in my life
You won't sleep next to me
You're trying to experience reality

I have done that
The feelings just get worse
The days roll on and on
My days roll on and on
