Track Name: It's not that
You're always under my skin
How do you live in it?
Trapped under summer sweat
While I've been chasing gold teeth at funerals
And drinking down the poison through cans and funnels

I'd do anything for you
Cut off my arm if you asked me to
Die alone if it helps you through the year
I'm not complaining
It's not that
I'm just saying
I'm not complaining

I guess that I'll stay in the car
I guess I'll breathe in the exhaust
until the awkward silence is over
then I'll just say,
"Hey, it never mattered anyway."
Track Name: you won't be happy again
My teeth mean nothing to me
Unless I am in-between shoulders
Your laugh, I'm weak in the back seat
Where I'm smiling
Trespassing in old buildings
Doing what we've gotta do
Before I grow up in a couple months

But what do I know about happiness?
Making it out of thin air
No oxygen
But I heard you say it

You won't be happy again

But that doesn't mean I can't try
We can be that age
Young, naive, and brave
Not scared to care for someone
When all I can say is
"I'll do what I can"
It's sad to say
I'd be anyone's anything
If they'd let me
Track Name: you just won't be the same
Take me to the lake
And take out my brain
Take all the pieces I need
And throw them away
So I'll crash on your couch or
Into a car
I cant tell the difference
Between comfort and pain anymore

My face is indifferent and complacent
With a lie that it's friends with
Cut legs on barbed wire, jumped fences
Can't use dirt as bandages

But it's just blood
You won't admit it's because of you
It's no surprise you say the shit you do
"It's not my fucking problem that you feel that way."
I'll just face the fact that you just won't be the same

Hold me
Underwater, I'll hear you laughing and singing
is a hobby I'd give up if you asked me

Then my bones can be your throwing stones
Track Name: as you were before.
I swore I heard you laughing with me
On the couch at my house
And I remember how you said
You're my best friend
But I don't think I'll feel that way again

But those are my favorite parts
Saying that you hate me
Tearing me apart

Take out my spine
use it to hang me from the phone lines
Take in the view of you
To see you happy when I'm feeling blue
I'm turning blue

I never had the guts to say
That I wish you wouldn't laugh
When I spill them that way
I never had the guts to say
That I'm really upset about it

It's not that you won't be happy again,
you just won't be the same as you were before

I hate (I hate)
the way that things just don't feel the same (the way)
Like you'll never laugh again (you say)
At least not that way
I'll be okay
