Track Name: Only Human
[instrumental]
Track Name: Chasing Life Away (Feat. Mark Lesser)
"Chasing Life Away" LYRICS:
smoking in my momma’s van
steering with a steady hand
never met Jack, but I met the bottle
don’t deserve a world of light
I am a soul trapped in the night
I’m not insane, that’s not the deal
I’m just the only thing
That is real

I chchchase life away
scared of feeling anything
friendly to my dying day
cause I'll be lying on a flower bed
smoking all my cigarettes
laughing in the face of death

smoking in my momma’s van
steering with a steady hand
never met Jack, but I met the bottle
chchchchchchasing life away
smile at my killer’s face
I am choking on a notion of repression of emotion
I am sinking in an ocean of regret
I can’t get over, big deal

I chchchase life away
scared of feeling anything
friendly to my dying day
cause I'll be lying on a flower bed
smoking all my cigarettes
laughing in the face of death
Track Name: Skinny Dipping
"Skinny Dipping" LYRICS:
I got my toes in the sand
Still gettin giddy when you hold my hand
Nothing beats the way you speak with the sun peakin over your shoulder at me
And I’ll hold you in my arms
Come on baby girl why don’t you do me some harm
I feel so alive in the reflection of your eyes
I’ll be you flower if you’ll fertilize

You're so addicting
and I’m addicted
Oh girl you know I’m so down
So down
So down

Now don’t you let me go
Before I let you know
You’re so cool, I’ll confess, I’m impressed
Sun kissed, bright lips, ain’t you the best

Skinny dipping on a Friday night
The water feels so good and the stars are real bright
Despite the light pollution perhaps it’s an illusion cause I’m looking in your eyes but I swear I see stars shooting
Love is so confusing, your voice is so soothing
I swear I’m nothing but, but tonight I feel more than human
if only you could see yourself through my eyes, woah ohhhh

You're so addicting (woah oh!)
and I’m addicted (woah oh oh oh oh)
Oh girl you know I’m so down
So down
So down

Now don’t you let me go
Before I let you know
You’re so cool, I’ll confess, I’m impressed
Sun kissed, bright lips, ain’t you the best
Track Name: Untitled 2
"Untitled 2" LYRICS:
if you feel lonely, if you’re upset
and there’s no one in your bed
if you’re the victim of being a friend
well ain’t that the end?
oh and you’re whispering in my ear
like I meant more than I meant
but you just take what you want

i’m not sorry for feeling upset
get it through your head
oh and you’re pushing me to the edge
like the scraps of what’s left
oh you just take what you want out of me
and I’ll just sink to my knees ensuring sea
oh you pass by

oh you always catch me at times
when a fuck is too hard to give
yet my sweet indifference’s refuted by your decisions
like I need fucking permission to hate my state of position
no I’m not sorry. no I’m not sorry. no-no-no, that won’t change
oh you just take what you want

I’m not sorry for feeling upset
get it through your head
oh and you’re pushing me to the edge
like the scraps of what’s left
oh you just take what you what out of me
and I just sink to my knees ensnaring sea
oh you just take what you need
and I just sink for good

oh you just take what you need
and I just sink to my knees
oh you just take what you need
and I just sink to my knees
Track Name: I.F.H.T.L.I.T.A.
"I Forgot How to Look into the Abyss" LYRICS:
i can feel the curve of your hips
i can taste the shade of your lips
suck me into a black hole
then light between a kiss
days before you are days dissmissed
and days after you don't exist
when we're alone your eyes insist
for this heart of mine to untwist

i love you like fire spreading
i want you to hold me in your gaze
where there's no chance of regretting
you are my first and final days

i will stay
if you will stay
if you promise me
you'll never go away

sometimes the despair persists and
darkness looms out in the mist
drop a kiss on my shoulder and
i instantly unclench my fist
your shining heart is luminous
i'm much darker than i'll admit
there in your arms i'll forget
how to look into the abyss

yeah, i love you like suns setting
i want you to hold me in your gaze
where there's no chance of forgetting
your face on these sunny days

i will stay
if you will stay
if you promise me
you'll never go away
Track Name: 12:22
"12:22" LYRICS:
i’ve got fire burning under my flesh
ember turning drifting away

i’ve got fire burning inside my chest
and I’m learning how not to be afraid

yeah my love will vacillate
cause life wokrs that way

taking mental pictures in my mind
snowing softly in my bedroom

smiling profile looking into night
praying to my god I don’t want to be dead soon

yeah my love will vacillate
cause life works that way
Track Name: Unstable
"Unstable" LYRICS:
i'm emotionally unstable, i'm finding it so hard to breathe
bottles in my bedroom like foot soldiers at my feet surrounding me
voices in my head tell me i'm not alone
i will not die tonight
then she takes my hand
it wakes me up
i feel alive
i'll be alright

oh here we go
it's not too late for me to try, and save my soul
you're waiting to be saved but i just need a home

friends like falling stars, it seems to me you don't really fall around here
seems i've been alone since i left home
shed a light on my greatest fear
there's no more sense in making cents
i need to grow beyond what i need to get by
just like Kanye West said, "wait till i get my money right"

just take it slow
there's no need to run through life or so i'm told
take care of your heart, make sure you feed your soul

oh here we go
it's not too late for me to try, and save my soul
you're waiting to be saved but i just need a home
Track Name: Bleeding Sun
"Bleeding Sun" LYRICS:
i’ve got one foot out of the door, i’m scared
can’t put full pressure on the floor, i won’t dare
so kill me slow i’m feeling it, my friend
sh kill me slow I’m feeling it, my friend
treasure the ghost of the one love that you had had
try to forget, forget that you know you can’t
so kill me slow I’m feeling it, my friend
so kill me slow I’m feeling it, my friend

jumping the gun to say you’ve won, oh yeah
and I’ll ride into a bleeding sun on my nightmare
so kill me slow I’m feeling it, my friend
so kill me slow I’m feeling it, my friend
treasure the ghost of the one love that you had had
try to forget, forget that you know you can’t
so kill me slow I’m feeling it, my friend
so kill me slow I’m feeling it, my friend
Track Name: World Full of Flowers
"World Full of Flowers" LYRICS:
"i've bit the dust," that's what she's saying
"i've had enough of being a replacement"
crying in your parent's basement
you're a golden flower, in a field of hatred
and when you fall, be still
a world full of flowers
that were killed

I hit the ground, don't try and save me
took a trip, a fatal vacation
choking on regret and pavement
the damage is done, my soul is naked
and when you fall, be still
a world full of flowers
that were killed
but when you fall, be still
a world full of flowers that were killed
Track Name: Kiss of Death
"Kiss of Death" LYRICS:
all the girls are at the beach
living lavish in pink bikinis
driven by rejecting boys
who talk love without meaning anything
sipping on a pink moscato
splitting squares and sharing mottos
Sally wants to win the lotto
but she can't get it if her soul don't follow

vile manipulative device for
blinding eyes, and lips to die for
kiss of death, I'd take my life for
a kiss of death, that's what I applied for
Oh you got one more glass of wine poured
ask me what I'd live and die for
[rue my life for who I applied for]
a kiss of death I'd take my life for
a kiss of death, that's what I applied for

I won the lottery, lucky me
but not so much, I met Sally
she whispered in my ear, "you're my honeybee"
--didn't see her eyes on my money
she lied to me and I believed
she kissed my heart I misconceived
in my sleep I catch a feeling of death
I wake up with her hand on my neck
and a knife to my chest

vile manipulative device for
blinding eyes, and lips to die for
kiss of death, I'd take my life for
a kiss of death, that's what I applied for
Oh you got one more glass of wine poured
ask me what I'd live and die for
[rue my life for who I applied for]
a kiss of death I'd take my life for
a kiss of death, that's what I applied for
