Track Name: Owning Up (ft. Alex Moses)
There's no honesty in your eyes when you twist your tongue
How can you be so pathological yet still so young
Every lies a trigger pulled, on a loaded gun
I'd sooner leave you behind than have these songs unsung
I hope you wake up one of these days all on your own
Because you never really knew how it felt to be alone

I thought my best days were behind me, thought they were long gone
Convinced myself they’d left with you
Now I'm stuck to live with empty bottles and a bitter heart.
You’re the one thing I’ll never miss (I am done with this)

I guess you were right, when you said I only loved you
Because I needed you, but I felt it nonetheless
But I know for sure, it’s no coincidence
That I fell for you rather than anybody else.

I'm a waste of your time, you wasted mine too
All the hours spent just decaying with you.
You made me question things I love
And everything I've come to trust
And I can see, you're twenty three
and still stuck in that high school mentality
And I may be cutting you off,
you gave me the scissors to
make this mark without the scar
Invalidated promises won’t get you far

I guess you were right, when you said I only loved you
Because I needed you, but I felt it nonetheless
But I know for sure, it’s no coincidence
That I fell for you rather than anybody else.

I listen to the songs I played on your bed
Does my voice run through your head?
Track Name: Looking Back
I've never worn my heart on my sleeve
It's always hidden away and left to bleed
Out on these pages, that no-one ever sees

Was I nothing more to you than a backup plan?
You were no different from the rest
another memory to repress of times i detest

I got sick of looking back
So that I couldn't see
the path that was in front of me
I'd always bend over backwards
Just for you to never raise a finger
It only made things harder through this arduous winter
Where you left me bereft of any confidence
If theres one thing I'll maintain
It's that you'll never see my face again

I spent night thinking back on what could have been
And all these things we could have seen
But like clockwork, you walked away
And I'm glad that you did anyway.
And I can't help that we're not friends anymore
And truth be told, I don't miss you at all.

I got sick of looking back
So that I couldn't see
the path that was in front of me
I'd always bend over backwards
Just for you to never raise a finger
It only made things harder through this arduous winter
Where you left me bereft of any confidence
If there's one thing I'll maintain
It's that you'll never see my face again
Track Name: Can't Stand Ya!
This whole past year's felt like I'm dragging my feet
Moving painfully slow along this dead-end path
To the same beat
I'm tired and sore as these dreams become burdens
As weeks roll on there's only one thing that's for certain

Every time I find my feet the floors collapse below me
And I'll keep my head in the clouds even if I'm falling

I'll walk away and you can stay on your throne
While I live the life that you'll never know
And you can say what you want to say
But know that you'll choke on your words
One of these days

I've watched friends pack up their hopes and dreams
And leave this all behind
I'm taking back the year you wasted one day at a time
I'm not holding back and no I won't just hold the line
You've faded out like background noise and
I won't let you hold me down!

I'll walk away and you can stay on your throne
While I live the life that you'll never know
And you can say what you want to say
But know that you'll choke on your words
One of these days

Check check!
Left us behind, only care 'bout yourself
You're so scared of hard work so it's clear how you felt
About the time that we spent, the music we played
But we know you ain't shit at the end of the day.

I'll walk away and you can stay on your throne
While I live the life that you'll never know
And you can say what you want to say
But know that you'll choke on your words
One of these days
Track Name: Reflection
I can't find the right words to say
I try to keep myself together
I watched her mouth form the words "I can't do this"
And who could blame her?

What's to do when even my shadow won't stay by my side?
I try to capture these emotions that run through my head at night
Fighting off the demons inside my head
And this desperation I'm knee deep in

What I see in my reflection, is just a boy lacking direction
Laced with imperfections, at least in my perception
Ingesting sugar padded poisons to get my through
My heart drops to my stomach with just the thought of you
Track Name: Last June
I was barely 18 and felt like I had nothing
And that's exactly what you made me think I was

Pushed aside and left to rust on the shelf
Along with the other things that keep you up at night
What I thought was gold soon rusted and moulded
And who you really were quickly unfolded

I did my best not to think of you
But I can't escape the memory of what you did last June
In my own home you put this to an end
At least you had the decency to stay out of my bed.

I spent months at a time lost
Searching for a sense of purpose
'Cause I was left feeling nothing short of worthless
You left a mess inside my head that took me years to clean up
And I still have it swept under the rug

I did my best not to think of you
But I can't escape the memory of what you did last June
In my own home you put this to an end
At least you had the decency to stay out of my bed.

Strung me along because you liked the attention
Compliments and unrivaled affection
I didn't need you and why would I want to?

Strung me along because you liked the attention
(It's not my intention)
Compliments and unrivaled affection
(For resentment)
I didn't need you and why would I want to?
(You only care about yourself_
