Track Name: Hollowed Out
[Verse 1]
Everyday its all the same, we wake up dead and play their game
Theres no humanity left to steal we're hollowed out
Gathered and lead like sheep to kill ourselves but the dead dont speak
Off to school or off to work our souls are lost either way

[Pre chorus]
Just another day
Were hollowed out
Its just another day
Our souls are lost either way

[Chorus]
Hey Hey
We're hollowing out

[Verse 2]
It feels like ive gone insane, with the thought of losing everything
Friends become enemies to fear, we're hollowed out
No one will know your name but who is left to take the blame
Off to work or off to war we die the same either way

[Bridge]
Caught in a loop,or stuck in a trance
Hold on to yourself,cause theres no going back
Youre giving up, giving in but I wont hollow out
Your soul is all they really care about
Left for dead and rotting from the inside
They paint a pretty picture and feed you all in lies
Its on your tv, the films and magazines
Its the life we all dream of with no humanity
Track Name: Turning 20 Something [Feat. Atrocity Solution]
[Verse 1]
I rose up from the dead 20 something years ago
To rot upon this earth, you can say it isnt so
Im still searching for something a meaning in this life
Something to believe in before I fucking die
Give up? HELL NO! All alone I must walk
With my dreams in my hand but I aint one to talk
Im not sure where to go, or even to begin
So Ill write this song to you and pretend I fit in

Pretend I fit In Yeah

[Chorus]
Each day Each night I wonder where I should belong
Nothing matters at all when youre turning 20 something
Each day each night I wonder if I belong
No one cares at all when youre turning 20 something

[Post Chorus]
Well you know who to call
When you just dont care at all
We're the same, why cant you see
We're all part of this pathetic disease
Life is catching Up
Am I giving up?
Sometimes you need a slap in the face
To remind yourself of all your stupid mistakes

I cant, I wont, I cope, I lie
I laugh, I smile, I breathe, I cry
I cant, I wont, I hope, I die
We live, we learn, but not all survive

[Verse 2 JAY]
Toward the end of my 20's I've got nothing to show,
but this debt that has been collected and the stories we've wrote.
All of the dreams that I once had are now a thing of the past,
and these scars are the reminder of the journey we've had.
So where am I to go. Another disappointment down this dark and lonely road.
We're running out of gas and my pockets are wearing thin, from this path we have chosen there's no way we can win. Yea yea yea!
Track Name: Dead Already
[Verse 1]
Can you feel it in the air? Its thats time again
these walls these walls these walls are closing in
Do you think we'll live to see tomorrow
So tie the ends and burn your bridges down
Its just my way of keeping you around
So tell me friend, do you wanna see tomorrow?
Cause I dont

[Chorus]
Give me your best shot
Im dead already

[Post Chrous]
So once more with feeling
This is my last try at dealing
So once more with feeling
This is my last try to get myself away from you

Its the least that I can do

[Verse 2]
I dont feel thing I dont think I ever did
And so it goes a tale of the dead
Do you think we should live to see tomorrow?
tear the seams and watch our friendships die
Its just my way of keeping us alive
So tell me friend, do you wanna see tomorrow?
Cause I dont

[Bridge]
Im so sorry it had to end like this
But these walking bones will never find true bliss
You can stick with me [But ill only bring you down]
I need you now but I cant have you around

I need you now
I needed you then
Ill need you forever and always till the end
But I cant have you around
Track Name: Dying Days
[Verse 1]
Just one more song
To end the night, Im kinda fucked up
My vision is a blur my speech is kinda slurred
Im living on the edge the corner at the bar
My friends are all here but my mind is so far away
From everything I need but what I want is still just killing me
Or maybe im still just killing time
Cause at the end of day we all just wanna die
These dying days
Are here to stay

[Chorus]
Welcome to hell
I want you to stay
Spending our days
Just rotting away
Im not crazy
Im just bored
And a little lost
But you've heard this before

[Post Chrous]
Dont be surprised
If im lost at your door
Or a call in the night
Begging for more
These dying days
Theyre here to stay
These dying days
Are eating me away

If you wanna fuck with me
Get used to misery
Cause we're all just down and out
Thats what these days are all about

[Verse 2]
Just one more drink
To forget the night, cause im a fuck up
When will I ever learn, will I ever get my turn?
My chance to live a different life
Where I stab myself in the back and I wont ask why
Dead or dying its all the same you see
So I pour myself a drink but dont you pity me
We're all just trying to kill some time
Cause at the end of the day we all just wanna die

[Outro]
Could you get used to this?
Its miserable old me
These dying days are here to stay
I could use some company
Track Name: Punk Rock Is Stupid
[Verse 1]
Im stuck here at the punk rock show and everybody is ready to go.
Who's got the tallest hawk the most studs pinned to their belt?
Punk rock is stupid i think this scene is dead to me.
I guess im just not punk enough cause my parents get along with me.
We all pretend that this thing called "punk" is still about unity.
Its the same ones who preach this shit who think they're too fucking cool for me

[Chorus]
Punk rock is stupid.
[Verse 2]
Listen up this dying scene is just one big fucking joke.
Contradicting what you say by the cards that you've all dealt.
Throwing up words your favorite bands all call disease
Its so sad in all the worst ways, its one big hypocrisy
Punk rock is stupid its become so clear to see.
We've become the world we hate and its such a tragedy.

[Outro]
This scene has become a circle of fools
Young stupid tools its just like highschool
No one gives a shit about the music or the scene
All they want to do is prove that they're more punk than me
Youve killed this for us, what happened to you?
Gone and ruined the one thing I thought would stay true
After all this time, it's ironic to see
That we're the cops and hypocrites we said we'd never be
Track Name: Bury Me
[Verse 1]
Its almost 4am as I stumble through the door
So I eat some fucking pizza I got the night before
With a blunt in my hand and guitar by my side
You're the only thing missing to round out the night
Excuse me if I sound pathetic just hear me out you wont regret it
Life alone is no fun you see so join the dead and bury me

[Chorus]
Bury me x3

[Verse 2]
Its almost 5am and Im not still not asleep
So I smoke another bowl and try to count some sheep
But you're the only thing I still got on my mind
Its the same old fucking song time after time
Excuse me if I sound pathetic just hear me out you wont regret it
Life alone is no fun you see so join the dead and bury me

Excuse me if I sound pathetic, just hear me out you wont regret it
Life alone is no fun you see, so join the dead and bury me
Track Name: Nowhere Bound
[Verse 1]
Off we go no need for directions
Bad luck will follow us
But tonight no one dies alone
Fuck this city come on lets go
Just kids (with no control)
Just kids (nowhere to go)
Just kids (down on hope)
We were all just kids with no where to go

[Chorus]
SOS
Kill me now and kill me quick
SOS
Kill me now and kill me quick

[Verse 2]
Turn it up its AGT
Im too fucked up in your backseat
No clue where to next?
Lets do something we'll all regret
Just kids (with no control)
Just kids (nowhere to go)
Just kids (down on hope)
We were all just kids with no where to go

[Bridge]
But sometimes
In the dead of night
I just wanna die yeah its true
But sometimes
In the dead of night
I just wanna take a drive with you
Take a drive with you

Sometimes when you have no place to go
You'll head nowhere, any road just to cope

Turn up the music to drown out the pain
Our hopes and dreams are going right down the drain
Just drive all night I dont care where we go
I never wanna come back home
I never wanna come back
Track Name: Death Before Decaf
[Verse 1]
You better not talk to me till ive had my cup of joe
You dont know what it takes and youll never fucking know
How hard it is to stand here and pretend I fucking care
But when Ive got my coffee at least it helps me bare
Ive been up all night
And now im stuck at work
Please someone just kill me now
Or pour another cup.

[Chorus]
Death before decaf everyday
Death before decaf its the only fucking way
Death Before decaf

[Verse 2]
Everyone is my enemy till Ive had my cup of joe
If you say just one more word I think I might explode
Everyday its getting harder to get my ass on outta bed
If I didnt have my coffee I think you'd all be dead
Ive been up all night
And now im stuck at work
please someone just kill me now
Or pour another cup.

[Outro]
I need
I want
I need
Coffee
Track Name: This Is Killing Me
[Chorus/Intro]
This is Killing me
This is killing me
This is killing me

[Verse 1]
Still up at the crack of dawn and ive already hit the snooze
You've supplied the rope for me so I guess ill tie the noose
We all fall for someone and we're made to believe
They're yours till the end but we've all been deceived

[Verse 2]
That old familiar feeling returns to my chest
Love is not enough when youre always second best
Tell me you hate me so I cant ignore
The bittersweet taste of the past you adore

[Bridge]
No hope until the end
Until their past returns again
Track Name: Write On
[Verse 1]
I take the long way home
Its The only way I know
I feel alone on the busiest avenues
I Take out a cigarette
To ease my mind
I thought told myself that this would be the last time
I'd play the fool again, to hate myself again
How the fuck is all of this suppose to end
Remind me why I never sleep at night
We all write on until till everythings alright

[Pre Chorus]
And when it all just falls apart again
Write on, write on write on

[Chorus]
Say goodbye to me my friends
Im locking the door until this ends
These 4 walls will be my cage
Until the sickness starts to fade
From pen to paper, heart to hand
No songs enough to understand
When it falls apart write on my friend

[Post Chorus]
(Write on)
Write on my friend

[Verse 2]
I let myself believe
That you were done with me
Hello again my friend my beautiful agony
I Write some lousy songs
To pass the time
It really sucks when you're stuck on the first line
Am I the fool again? I hate myself again.
How the fuck is all this supposed to end
Remind me why I should get some sleep at night
We all write on till everythings alright

[Bridge]
When it falls apart again
Like it always does
Write on my friends
Write on till the end
Track Name: A Perfect Waste Of Time
[Verse 1]
Its been a couple years since ive seen your face
I hope you're doing well
Im not sure what else to say I guess we're growing up
Or just growing apart
I swear I needed all this to get me through the storm
I hope you find your answers, I hope you get your turn
I had things left to say and now ive said them all
Ive got no room left for hate Ive got no room left to fall

[Chorus]
These songs were my meds, these lyrics my friends
This was all just a perfect waste of time in the end
These were songs for the dead, I fear this might be the end
This was all just a perfect waste of time in the end

A perfect waste of time

[Verse 2]
These memories we make I swear they break like strings
And Ive broken so much
Each song that I make finds it way to you
Now im all outta tune
These clouds overhead seem to follow me
Each chord that strike a catastrophe
Not a thing left to say so should I call this quits
Return to the earth where my body sits

[Bridge]
Rise up
Fall back down
Its the cycle of the dead
I fear that I
have nothing left to say
i have nothing left to say

Can you feel the sadness in your veins?
Nows the time to rise up from your grave
Can you feel the anger in your veins?
Nows the time to rise up from your grave
And take my place
