Mea Culpa 02:50
I've had my bones ripped clean I felt the hope drain out of me I've lost my mind too many times But I'm finding a reason, to believe again I was getting used to feeling used When I had nothing left to lose I pulled myself down all the time Searching with nothing left, nothing left to find I felt the weight on my chest So tired of always being second best But I saw who was standing in the way The reflection of a person I never wanted to be I was getting used to feeling used When I had nothing left to lose I pulled myself down all the time Searching with nothing left, nothing left to find With nothing left, nothing left to find

Surrender 04:31
I hide my secrets with paper and pen I let my feelings drown In a lake we used to swim in Decorate all of my sins I'm not the man you came here with I'll burn a hole in your heart Something that won't heal and scar Something that won't heal and scar Decorate all of my sins I'm not the man you came here with

I watched you lay there silenced by pain I saw you ache, underneath your weight I stood near and watched you cry I knew things, weren't right I turned my back on you I'm not the son you asked for So I lied to you just to save face And I loved you But it's just not the same I watched the drugs and pain tear you apart I begged you stop tearing out your heart and I loved you But it's just not the same And I called out to you

Empty Hands 04:16
Waking up always felt like such a chore to me Stumble out of bed Avoid the chaos in my head Spend the day drowning out my thoughts Feeling lost and out of touch Pick me up just to let me down I never felt so low Waiting for things to change again And I know that they won't Things are never as they seem And I can't help what I can't feel I think this time I know this time Try to sleep but the voices in my head won't let me I'm reaching out to empty hands For something more than this I'll loosen my grip on everything I'll never understand Pick me up just to let me down I never felt so low Waiting for things to change again And I know that they won't Things are never as they seem And I can't help what I can't feel I think this time I know this time I'd rather be in the ground Holding back the words I never said Holding on for reasons I wish I didn't have I'll never be okay Or look at life the way you do I just wanna let go

Roots 04:44
And I'm no different than the dust Floating in the air I'm aimless I'm drifting I'm tired of picking up the pieces of my life slipping through my fingertips And back onto the dirt where they are laid to rest and there's a space in my chest Where something else belongs but I won't find it here and I won't look for long Im tired of myself asking questions I'll never figure out I'll never figure out Don't figure me out cause I already tried I'm lost inside my head again I'm stumbling in the dark but I know I'll find my way back to the place where I last felt The blood coursing through my veins and the beating in my chest I'll find some kind of meaning to this life To fill the emptiness inside I'm sorry mother I know you tried And dear father I have opened up my eyes Cause nothing beautiful can ever grow If the roots will never take hold And I've got plenty of time to turn it all around to make it alright but I'm pushing 23 already empty inside but I promise I'll try to find myself one last time Don't figure me out cause I already tried I'm lost inside my head again I'm stumbling in the dark but I know I'll find my way back to the place where I last felt The blood coursing through my veins and the beating in my chest I'll find some kind of meaning to this life To fill the emptiness inside Don't figure me out

As I Am 04:36
I haven't slept in days And the bags under my eyes Carry more than you could know More than you could ever fucking know There's a pain in my back From the weight of the world Resting on my shoulders As im only growing older Take me as I am, it's all I'll ever be You're not changing anything your not changing me Look me in the eyes watch the colors fade Like frost on your front porch I will slowly dissipate Take a shot to kill the pain Over and over all over again One bottle down I know it's getting late I'm numbing my mind removing the weight Of trying to get by day by day It's with all good intentions I'm trying to find a way To rest my eyes under heavy lids But I'm still in bed laying wide awake Take me as I am, it's all ill ever be You're not changing anything your not changing me Look me in the eyes watch the colors fade Like frost on your front porch I will slowly dissipate I'm drowning all alone I'm drowning no Im not coming home (So please don't save me)
