Were you bored, or just preoccupied with the important things in your life? Why can’t I ever find myself on the better half of your mind? Were you bored, or just preoccupied? Can you spell it out for me? So I don’t get confused by what you mean. Cause what you say is a completely different thing.
Well each time you ask, it’s like swallowing glass. Every time you ask, oh god, I hope it’s the last. Do you enjoy watching me pull the words through my teeth? When you ask me if things would be better if you’d just leave?
Were you bored, or just preoccupied with the important things in your life. Please remind me where the line is between unhappy and unhealthy. Can’t you do anything for me? Can’t you help me?
Track Name: Ditched
Twitch a little longer, ‘til you start to seize. I’ll pick at this wound; it’s starting to bleed. “Ditched”. That’s how I described it when you fled the scene. Physically, but most of all mentally.
And I know already that this is how it’s going to be. And you know I won’t say a thing. But you made it perfectly clear that it doesn’t really matter to you. Well it matters to me.
You can take it back, but I’m still not taking you back. You can take it back, but I’ll still be fucked up. And I know you’ve taken everything you wanted from me. And you know you won’t be giving me back anything any time soon. Cause nothing really matters to you the way that it matters to me.
Track Name: Brain
I don’t know a damn thing that goes through your head. No, not anymore. Not ever again. It must have been something I said, while you tore away at what’s left of the paint on your bedroom door. So I’ll tear away at the pain that I try to ignore day after day. You sure do know how to push me away.
And if I went to start all over, would it even make a difference in your brain? Tell me you can’t just start all over. When you made up your mind, you did so permanently.
Track Name: Overdue
“Sorry I don’t love you.” A phrase I’ve grown accustomed to. Cause with you, if something isn’t wrong (something isn’t wrong) then something isn’t right.
I wish you could be happy. They sell smiles by the bottle at the pharmacy. Why’s it seem like everybody knows, everyone but you? I think you’re overdue, how about you?
Did it hurt when your head hit the ground? Could you even make a sound? Cause I wouldn’t even know since we don’t even talk. I don’t even know if that’s something you want. I think we’re overdue, how about you?
You don’t even speak to me. Maybe if I cut off all my hair you would forget how much you hate my face, and maybe I could forget about you.
Maybe if you cut off all your hair you would forget how much you hate yourself.
Track Name: Backseat
Misery, oh, won’t you keep me company, oh please? I know you hate the way I drag my feet.
Why does this conversation always seem to take the backseat? Why does the littlest confrontation always seem to make you angry? You make me wish I was somebody else.
Inconsistent chemicals have brought me to my knees. You know you love to walk away, I hate to watch you leave.
Why does this hesitation feel so heavy? And why’s it seem like every time I go to take my prescription it’s always empty? You make me wish I was someone else. Why does this conversation always seem to take the backseat?
You love to walk away; I hate to watch you leave. You love to walk away; I hate to watch you walk away.
Track Name: Folly
Can you help me? Is there anyway to make this short and sweet? How many days does it take before the tragedy you’re waiting for finds your address and meets you at your front door?
I ain’t gonna stay just because I think I have to. Is that what you want?
Can you help me? Is it folly to think you would? How many days will it take before your patience wanes and hits the floor, before you forget my name? I aint gonna stay just because you say you want me to. Is that what you want?
How many times will you ask me to hold on until you find me cold on the bathroom floor? Is that what you want?
