Track Name: Meanwhile
I fell behind, you drifted away
I'm coping but time takes its toll
I'd like to say that I'm doing okay
but that lie has already been sold
the weight on my shoulders is holding me down
and i cant get over that now I'm alone and afraid

everyone is moving on i shut my eyes and you were gone
everyone is moving on and where am i now
everyone is moving on i shut my eyes and you were gone
everyone is moving on and where am i now

you lied and you lost it came with a cost
we all went our separate ways
said its for the best the changed for the worst
we're stuck in the beds that we made
Track Name: Burnout
You're just like a drug and I made you a habit
When you sensed a relapse you ran and you grabbed it
I'm used then thrown out
As you break me down
I circled the drain but you let me go down
Say what you want but you let me drown

I'm walking away from the life that we made
If sleeping alone is the price that i pay
its worth every cent so I'll start today
Closing doors and locking yours wasn't easy but you made the key
the past is where its meant to be

I'm done trying to dig up all these old hatchets
your memories are buried right where they should have been
the comfort you gave is no more than an old friend
fueling these old flames wont burn me like back then

I'm walking away from the life that we made
If sleeping alone is the price that i pay
its worth every cent so I'll start today
Closing doors and locking yours wasn't easy but you made the key
The past is where its meant to be

You think you're the end all its time for your send off
You think you're the end all its time for your send off

I'm walking away from the life that we made
If sleeping alone is the price that i pay
its worth every cent so I'll start today
Closing doors and locking yours wasn't easy but you made the key
the past is where it's meant to be

these old flames wont burn me like back then
these old flames wont burn me like back then
these old flames wont burn me like back then
Track Name: Rock Bottom
Stumbling home
Everything is a blur
The adrenaline fades
From a night spent forgetting
Laying awake
Sick of this routine
Everyone's moving on with their lives

I've just written a few songs about mine
If you know me you know
My pace is slow as far as
progress goes
I've been battling bottles
And sleeping on floors
I'm sick of waking up
Feeling worse than before
I'm searching for an escape
So I don't have to face
The possibility that I'm
The fuck up they all said I'd be

I guess I'm just scared
Of the general idea
That all that I've done
Written down to a T
Wouldn't be worth
One single read
The focus is on everything that I'm not
I really need someone to give me a shot

Each step I attempt my life comes to a stop

I've been battling bottles
And sleeping on floors
I'm sick of waking up
Feeling worse than before
I'm searching for an escape
So I don't have to face
The possibility that I'm
The fuck up they all said I'd be
What if they're right

I'm searching for an escape
So I don't have to face
The possibility that I'm
The fuck up they all said I'd be

I've been battling bottles
And sleeping on floors
I'm sick of waking up
Feeling worse than before
I'm searching for an escape
So I don't have to face
The possibility that I'm
The fuck up they all said I'd be

What if they're right
Track Name: The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings
You never think twice before you go and let me down
It would be nice to believe that you could change
I gave more than I took
I was just digging my own grave
Its time I cut my losses and learn from my mistakes

I wanted all the answers I found them all in you
It took till now to find out that none of them were true
The only thing consistent
Was all this fucking distance
The rest all fell apart in spite of every time I fixed it
It isnt that I held a grudge
Bitter is a better word
Because I'm getting numb to all the rumors that I've heard
The best that I can do now
Is to pick a new direction
That will face away from you
and set aside these recollections

You never think twice before you go and let me down
It would be nice to believe that you could change
I gave more than I took
I was just digging my own grave
Its time I cut my losses and learn from my mistakes

We dont know what we've lost
until the truth comes clawing out
and frankly dear your chance is gone
to alleviate my doubts
in case you somehow missed it
we just cant coexist in
this illusion of perfection we built
to hide ourselves from our own guilt
you won by a mile but i'm the one to blame
they all say this too will pass
so was it worth the game we played
the countless days of waiting
for you to come and save me
do we just forget it all because we couldn't take the fall

You never think twice before you go and let me down
It would be nice to believe that you could change
I gave more than I took
I was just digging my own grave
Its time I cut my losses and learn from my mistakes

I'm trying my best to look at the silver linings
It's been hell but I'll come out fighting
I was your mistake, you were my regret
Now it's in the past and better yet
I think I'll be alright
I'm trying my best to look at the silver linings
I'm trying my best
Track Name: Infamous
You look up and then you see
a past you're not so proud of
You're reminded that you bleed
the same as the crowd around you
You always did put up a fight
I always saw it in your eyes
a misplaced sense of right and wrong
a confused girl who's seen it all

old memories eat away at you each night and day
but your image stays the same way you intended
was it worth it, was it worth it?
what you gave up for what you gained
you're an infamously perfect mess

change it all and leave
its hard to face what you have made
but we all have to live with the reputations we create
i see someone who broke down
the same as me not long ago
you hid it better than i did
but inside you're caving in

old memories eat away at you each night and day
but your image stays the same way you intended
was it worth it, was it worth it?
what you gave up for what you gained
you're an infamously perfect mess

you're caving in
you're caving in
you're a perfect mess
a perfect mess
you're caving in

old memories eat away at you each night and day
but your image stays the same way you intended
was it worth it, was it worth it?
what you gave up for what you gained
you're an infamously perfect mess
Track Name: For What It's Worth
I believe that when you're a jack
In a hand of queens and kings
It changes your perspective of things
Maybe its you or all I've been through
Somethings' got me thinking
In a second place mentality
I wish you wanted more than to haunt me
Now you're just a ghost in my eyes
transparent like all of your lies
Next time you see me I will be leaving
You and everything behind
In exchange for a little piece of mind

I don't know what you wanted from me
I think about it daily, its exhausting
I realize you can't do anything
to put me on my feet, its all on me
I don't know what you wanted from me
I think about it daily, its exhausting
I realize you can't do anything
to put me on my feet, its all on me

I just wanna be a better example
I wanna be the first choice for once
If I learned anything from all I've done
its that its all progress
I'm sick of silver I just wanna be gold
I'm moving forward even if its slow
If I learned anything from all I've done
its that its all progress
its all progress

looks like I'm leaning toward forward thinking
looking back wont change the fact
you gave me every reason
I'll change for my own sake
I won't let you break me again i'm better now
I'm sick of all the running
Out with the old and in with the new plan
Setting out to prove that I was doubted all for nothing

I just wanna be a better example
I wanna be the first choice for once
If I learned anything from all I've done
its that its all progress
I'm sick of silver I just wanna be gold
I'm moving forward even if its slow
If i learned anything from all I've done
its that its all progress
its all progress

I just wanna be a better example
I wanna be the first choice for once
If I learned anything from all I've done
its that its all progress
I'm sick of silver I just wanna be gold
I'm moving forward even if its slow
If i learned anything from all I've done
its that its all progress
its all progress
Track Name: Solace
It's been a long road
but i've been taking it all in stride
It's been a long time
since I slept easy at night
and I learned that keeping it all in
eats you up inside
Now it's safe to say that I'm okay
Yeah I'll be fine

It took convincing myself every day just to fight off
the demons you left, I kept them at bay
Imagine that, imagine that
The pain that you feed only bites you back
and secrets you bury will grow and remind you
of everything that you left behind
but I'm alright with where I'm at for once

It's been a long road
but i've been taking it all in stride
It's been a long time
since I slept easy at night
and I learned that keeping it all in
eats you up inside
Now it's safe to say that I'm okay
Yeah I'll be fine

I'm tired but now I'm not sleeping on floors
the weight that I carried should all have been yours
now my back is bent, and my hands are bruised
it's nothing compared to what you put me through
it was my dusk so i'll make the dawn
it was my dusk so i'll make the dawn
finally it's me that's moving on

It's been a long road
but i've been taking it all in stride
It's been a long time
since I slept easy at night
and I learned that keeping it all in
eats you up inside
Now it's safe to say that I'm okay
Yeah I'll be fine

i know where i've been, all your signals came in
yeah the point got across, but i'm not who i was
i know where i've been, all your signals came in
yeah the point got across, but i'm not who i was

i had two devils on my shoulders
guiding me into the dark
now everything seems brighter
i'ver already come this far

It's been a long road
but i've been taking it all in stride
It's been a long time
since I slept easy at night
and I learned that keeping it all in
eats you up inside
Now it's safe to say that I'm okay
Yeah I'll be fine

It's safe to say that I'm okay
