Track Name: Sleepwalking Child
Sleepwalking Child, will you tell me in the morning
Do you dream about her smile? Or so you dream of storming
Storming tears from boys your age and swarming insects in your mind
You're so kind, Sleepwalking Child

Sleepwalking Child, did you get enough to drink before
You rid yourself of bile and went upstairs to think about
A piano song and a melody that you can't quite seem to find
You've lost your mind, Sleepwalking Child

I don't want to think on anyone's behalf
I don't want to drink and I don't want to laugh
I don't want to go to sleep out in the road
I don't want to go

Sleepwalking Child, will you tell me of your dreams where you
March in single file with the people who don't love you?
And your dreams of Satan's Army bringing Hell unto the world
It'll come unfurled after a while
I could tell you you're not crazy, I could tell you your mind's not hazy
But those things aren't true, now are they?
Those things aren't true, Sleepwalking Child
Track Name: Cliché
Insert generic sentiment here
I started off this sentence with "I"
Put your problems on the shelf
I'm gonna talk about myself again
This gloomy weather is almost cliché
I must admit that it's probably my fault
That it was 85 degrees a week ago
And now the trees have lost their leaves

But there's no sense in isolation,
If I want it to get better, then I have to do something
Like see a friend, or run around, or read a book
Or anything at all besides what I'm doing now

This sense of worthlessness is stupid as shit
I'm fuckin' over it, I wanna get out
Of my room and of my head
And cease to wish that I were dead without a doubt
I feel so stupid complaining like this
I'm typing about how sad I feel on my new iPhone
Because my friends are cool, and I feel weird,
And blah blah blah blah...
Be grateful, you bastard

I didn't leave myself any Fireball
To bring out tonight and share with all my friends
Today was good, but it would be better if last night
I would have thought ahead
Track Name: Sophia
I feel ashamed that I still think of you sometimes
New information has revealed itself, now it's stuck inside my mind
You called me emotionless, told others I wasn't real
Honestly, I can't even begin to fathom how you think that I can't feel

I know that someday, we will all get ours
It's freezing in my new home, but it's burning where you are
I'm so glad I escaped from you

I heard it all weeks ago through a better friend
It makes me sad to know that you and I had a bitter end
I should have known the way you spoke of other boys
Alas, I refused to go, as your smile was so coy

I know that someday, we will all get ours
It's freezing in my new home, but it's burning where you are
I'm so glad I escaped from you

Shameful muse, why you?

I know that someday, we will all get ours
It's freezing in my new home, but it's burning where you are
I know that someday, we will all get ours
It's freezing in my new home, but it's burning where you are
I'm so glad I escaped from you
Track Name: Hydrocodone
When I was 15, I got high on hydrocodone in this room
I probably took about 10, it was a failed suicide attempt
And 6 months later, I cried myself to sleep before noon
In a bed that used to be right here

My dad drove me to a mental hospital
My only thought was, "Man, what a fucked up year"
I recognize the things that had brought me to that point
And I recognize the things that have brought me here

When I was 16, I dressed up in women's clothing in this room
I wasn't sure if I was gay or not
"Why did God have to make me this way?"
But when I was 16 also, I recorded songs in my basement all day
On my Tascam tape recorder and everything felt like it was okay

Since then, I've become more happy with myself
I don't try to kill myself or wear lingerie
I can't really give a reason for those things I did back then
But it doesn't matter now, because it's okay

Life is so much different now that I'm a little older and I live so far away
From everything that once made me feel so miserable
I'll never say that I'll never feel like blowing my brains out ever again
But at least now I know that I don't really have to try to do it
Track Name: When I Let My Hair Down
When I let my hair down
I will call off my men
I will fade away
But the war will never end

When I know what I
Want to do with my time
I will lay me down to rest
And it wont be a crime

But now I don't know what to say
'Cause I know that I'm wasting time
'Cause it's all mine

When I see the flames
Engulfing all of the sky
I will walk away
And I will wonder why

When I feel my sight
Flipping upside down
I will fall apart
"Let my buy a round"

But now I don't know what to say
'Cause I know I can't spare a dime
'Cause it's all mine

But now I've got no more to say
'Cause I know their not worth my time
'Cause it's all mine
