Track Name: Lovesick Blues
Curl up on the couch ignore the television
Lights dull, you can't find your lover
One time you told me you were actually happy
and songs that remind me of you make me lonely
knowing that you aren't coming around
and when I hear your name my stomach it still burns

Don't ignore the bad things I forget for the sake of everyone around
its not you I swear its me

Face down in some nightmare
where i cannot wake up
I took my own legs now I'm stuck in a pie of leaves
at the end of your street

So strung out on your love and can't stop thinking about how wonderful you are and if you hate me I know I'd be the first one to agree
Its so hard to wake up everyday and talk to myself about how much
I fucking hate this feeling of total seclusion its so cold
to be away from everything that kept you sane and
what you see is what you feel
Track Name: Dark Spot
Dark spot, imaginary, unwinding, unhappy, unsatisfactory device
spun and spun twice around the walls of your sadness
I hate him inside my chest my own betrayal the center unrest
I speak slowly totally lost with no grasp or bearing
All around its cloudy trapped in the mist from a distance
I long but can't really fin the will to pull myself back in

I thought I was free again, free from all the black smoke I hold in
whenever I get stressed out, it's something that I turn to and hide in
I can't keep going on like that its so unhealthy
I'm too unhealthy, man
I want to change

Dark spot, imaginary, unwinding, unhappy, unsatisfactory device
spun and spun twice around the walls of your sadness
I hate him inside my chest my own betrayal the center unrest
I speak slowly totally lost with no grasp or bearing
Track Name: Wildfire
You get out of your bed like a wildfire and spin around your room
the morning air is cold but your fuse is wired, a pressure lingering over you

So close, still so far away
and speaking up about its harder when you feel so desperate

You walk through your day with your eyes so tired, there was a halo over you, but your anger broke all those angels down the hatred spewing will not due
somewhere along the way you forgot how to show that you can love
and kept it all to yourself it doesn't radiate anymore, no.

You crawl into your bed with your head on fire and you're spinning once again
the pillow quakes and this bitterness holds tight, have your really lost all sight of what has held you together for so long, I'm sorry won't suffice anymore and karma's got you by the mouth

I would sit on the back porch of my house and choke down cigarettes and self loathing
I know you don't like hearing it but I am so sick and tired of being silent.
Track Name: In Limbo
It's ten o'clock at the start of every day since I moved to this new room and I'm tired of this solitude and used to have so much love surrounding me

Reflecting now I would have done things differently so I'd have somewhere to go
So detached on somber thoughts and nicotine a blue sky full of smog
I guess when what's inside comes out it leaves everyone with such a headache

And I can't even try to hold this emptiness inside anymore.
