Track Name: Pajama Drama
As the dark sky turns bright
My eyes look towards you
Mixing your mind with my own
Blurred vision, slurred speech
Early submission of the weak
Trying to blend in with the shadows

I've stood alone
Yeah, me on my own
Backed by my friends
That I've always known
And those of you...
I wish were here

But being alone is what I chose
Why the hate? Nobody knows
Like I said, I wish you were here
Track Name: Thinking Like That (can get you killed)
Oh, when you go
Deep inside your grave
You will be the last
They could have saved
One or two packed a gun
Underneath their seat
There's no sense in running, hun
They're right on your feet

You're gonna D-I-E
You're gonna be
The one they all wanted to see
Dieee

For the last time
No one cared about your death
How selfish can you get?
How many times have you asked?
Now, you're six feet in the earth
Just one more life
What would another hurt?

You're gonna D-I-E
You're gonna be
The one they all wanted to see
Dieee

Messages were not received
And none of the threats at all
You were the one no one believed
And the one they all feared
Of all the events that lead to this
Of all the kids
Oh-woah-oh-ohh
You're the one
Found dead
Track Name: Secure The Obscure
It's the kind of quiet you'd ever notice
From the shyest most unknown kids
Or the moment right before
You admit the fault's all yours

The first morning hours are the best
I don't know how you're not tired yet
Tired of repeating life

You take the time to make sure it's perfect
Before you know if it's even worth it
All your effort will not sustain
Now your masterpiece will waste away

All will crumble underneath you
Your tears really weren't the best thing to use
As the cement between the bricks
Of the walls you kept your heart in

Sink into further darkness
It's easier with nothing to part with
When I'm gone will you tell your kids
About the greatest man that ever lived?
What's the standard to care about
Another person's death?
Lifelong friends will eventually forget
I hope you don't mind
I sort of think that I might...

I will sing my soul until I'm free
You still won't know what's been really me
It's not like I'm under cover
It's the same as every other
Person that walks this planet
The same versions of everyone you've met
For the most part
We all close our eyes
And see the same dark
Track Name: Testosterone vs. Estrogen
In every word I've said out loud
A mark is left in time
And every decision leading up to now
Is a test specific for my mind
I'm able to instantly recognize
The soft touch of our guardian stars
In the whistling breeze and my squinted eyes
Causing these chills I have on my arms

It's a dangerous
Dangerous necessity
World famous
World famous mystery
After all, eternity
Will end in uncertainty
And now...
It's going down

I'll force myself to believe
In existence beyond the atmosphere
With the evidence in all I can see
In the distance when the skies are clear
It's enough to get you on your knees
Missing your last love's face
In memory and sight you're surrounded by beauty
Two beauties you could never replace

It's a dangerous
A dangerous necessity
World famous
A world famous mystery
After all, eternity
Will end in uncertainty
And now...
I'm going down
Track Name: Inside Joke: Painkillers & Coke
Please understand that it's not as simple
As you would assume
From the problems I faced everyday
To the ones I tried just to escape
And it's never felt so hard
To get that message through
To anyone that would never listen
I wouldn't blame you
Take some time to realize
I really wasn't as fine
Ohhh as I seemed I was
On my own, as I dreamed I was

And I speak the words of a shy man
It's time I show them just how it feels
Intimidate those who can't
Show me what you're working with

Go ahead and make your love to a full/fool
It won't matter much to me
As long as we end any rivalry
And accept any such commradery
The end of the world will feel as if
It's never gonna come
Don't you worry
There's no hurry
To rush the destruction of your home
Taking on the chance of shoplifting
An already broken heart
Ohhh what it'd do to you
Ohh no. What'd it do to you?

You'll say, "Boy, you can't hide behind that rock & roll"
The worst of me is all you've known
As bitter as this could possibly end
Show me what you're working with
Track Name: I Was Me
With a knife to my neck
And a gun to my chest
Oh baby, life moves so fast
When I'm with you
I can't see you today and I won't see you tomorrow
I swear to God I'll feel alone without you
You wanted to keep the memories of
When I was me and you were you

It's hard enough to say goodbye
Picked up your gun and closed your eyes
You said,
"It's the only way I can get you out of my mind."
Now it's all against the wall
Oh Quit trying

With a knife to my neck
And a gun to my chest
Oh baby, life moves so fast
When I'm with you
I can't see you today and I won't see you tomorrow
I swear to God I'll feel alone without you
You wanted to keep the memories of
When I was me and you were you

Tied to the end of a rope
Kicked out the chair
Feel the weight of the world
And you've never looked so bored
But you always would when we hung around
Oh quit crying

With my lips to your neck
And a heart in my chest
Oh baby, it beats so fast when I'm with you
I won't forget the promise you made
And if It's kept, I won't leave you today
Not Today
I'll always keep the memories
Of when I would ask, "Who is she?"
Now who is she??
Track Name: Follow My Lead
Some would call it fate
Others would call it chance
You know you'd appreciate anyone
That appreciates you back
There's no one around
To help me feel completely safe
But that will all soon change

Because there's you
To make sure
That the world is good to me
Now I know
That it's not all so bad

Some would call it change
Others would call it the past
I'll desperately struggle to find ways
To make right now last
The sun will come up
To shine it's rays on all the love
And help you find
All the places I would hide

All for you
To make sure
That the world is good to me
Now I know
That it's not also bad
