Track Name: Sink Too Deep
For as long I can think back, I never wanted to let you down
But for now I’m more focused on making me proud
I hope you some day you understand, that this what I need right now
I know someday I’ll figure this shit out
Turning eighteen’s not what it used to be
It’s feeling desperate, lost, and lonely
Problems I don’t need

It seems like everyone has my life picked out for me
“Go to school, and get your degree, it’s the only way to be happy”
It may sound childish, but I’ve my minds made up and the harsh truth is
I’m just not cut out for the minimum wage and community college

I’m nothing more than what you see
Just a kid trying to be honest, with some problems, trying to solve them
If I wrote the real book about growing up, the first line would be
This world is full of bullshit, don’t let yourself sink too deep

Just do what it takes to get some sleep, just get some sleep

It seems like everyone has my life picked out for me
“Go to school, and get your degree, it’s the only way to be happy”
It may sound childish, but I’ve my minds made up and the harsh truth is
I’m just not cut out for the minimum wage and community college

Sometimes it’s hard enough to breathe,
Not to mention think anything but pathetic pleas
And all I’m asking is please let me be who I need to be.
Just let me be who I need to be

The day I give up on this dream will be the day it kills me
It’ll take its toll on me but at least I will die smiling
The day I give up on this dream will be the day it kills me
And when the day comes I’ll finally be happy
Track Name: Indian Summer
I've taken time to watch this fall apart again
Now it doesn't matter if i pick it up and mend
Because once I leave I'm not ever looking back
Here's to the past, here's to the past

And believe me I'm trying to keep my head on straight
But it's harder when the pressures on and you're still afraid of making mistakes
This is unfair

It's so much easier digging the hole than filling it back up
I guess I'm just bad luck, I guess I'm losing touch

This winter can't come soon enough
But until then I'm fine without anything or anyone
Cause I'm so used to it, but I'm so done
Sitting on the sidelines, so when the fuck will it be my time?

This is unfair

It's so much easier digging the hole than filling it back up
I guess I'm just bad luck, I guess I'm losing touch
To take the time for me,
To pull myself up out of this shallow grave
Would be so risky
It would be so.....

So don't call me and tell me otherwise
Cause I know I'm falling back to where I always start
Back to this same place where it all began
It's leaving me again, you're leaving me again
Track Name: Naivety
The life you're holding is only controlling,
And the history you're making is fake so don't blame me
Everything I need is caught up in a dream but it's more like a nightmare to me

You're so naive, how did you let this happen
I wish I knew why he took you
I don't think you can be fixed after this

What's all the work you've done matter when you keep working at the same goal you'll Never reach
I know you took your time but after all it only took yours
And you've never been the same

I'll keep my distance as far as i can
I'm getting too close again
I'll keep my distance as far as i can
Because I'm getting too close, I'm too close again
But I'm losing again

What's all the work you've done matter when you keep working at the same goal you'll never reach
I know you took your time but after all it only took yours
And you've never been the same

Didn't think that I would feel this way
Call it jealousy, I'll call it how I see it
You're just another bad day I put behind
You're just another break in the line

What's all the work you've done matter when you keep working at the same goal you'll never reach
I know you took your time but after all it only took yours
Track Name: Red Light Challenge
This hate is running rampant, tearing all of us in half
Addictions and magazines, fuck everything they’re selling
This hate is running rampant, I can’t hardly stand it
(If this world is beautiful then it's painted in colors I simply can not see)

Dear World, You only let me down

I won’t settle on anything, I’m practically starving,
I’m so close to the gold, I can taste in my throat
Because good enough won’t cut it, I’ve seen it and I want it,
Because believing in ‘us’ is about all we’ve got

But don’t call me selfish, I just feel a bit slighted,
I know the world’s unfair, and no I won’t try to lie but
After years of waiting for my shooting star, my sign of hope
I’ve learned shooting stars are like me, too afraid to stay home

Dear World, you let me down
