Track Name: 969
I’m out here alone
with nothing to center me
but I’ll tell you right now
I’m not feeling harmless

If you stack up the cards
I’ll get into everything
mini plastic bags and drink glass
conclude my energy

I could be anyone I want to
Leave the door left locked, I don’t want you

10:15 on a Saturday Night
Watching the ceiling for any white lights
Feeling “666” even more than before,
My mind narrows

Bliss and company hand in hand
but I’m not speaking on anything else tonight
leave me at The Narrows

Every single straw
and every human thing
is all pulled apart
like a burning bible
dead flowers on the table,
a non-fiction tale to enable me

If I believe my inner demons
I could end up on my friend’s ceiling
Keys and fleeting thighs, I don’t want to
Track Name: If I've Been Acting
I'm not gonna lose it when you don't know how to be
You can't hold a conversation through methamphetamine

Did this one make you whole?
Standing by yourself with broken teeth and collapsing
Now that I hold my own, you don't remember my name
You don't recall any actions
You did wrong by me - so I ignore the calls and just control my reactions
Taking sips on faith with the glass half empty - I control my reactions

Can you figure it out? If I've been acting?
Look in my eyes, you'll see the reaction
Track Name: Bank
Paint yourself a picture without me inside it
I don't know where to stand, I don't know where to hide out
Holding on to you with one arm lose - try to to keep it together
When the bell toll rings, I won't be there
In the perfect moment, I won't be there
I don't care - I just don't care

Now I'm older, I can see
Everything you couldn't see
Flowers on my mothers grave
You're never there anyway

My dad once told me that anything you say, you take it too the bank -
You must've missed that
This time my blood ignores me,
forcing me to step through the crowd and grab for all the lifelines

Do you hear me now that I'm all worn out?

Left your wits of the table, love scatters about
and if I was around, you wouldn't notice
Holding on to you when you got nothing to lose, fuck I'll keep it together
This does not mean I can't be nice to you - you just don't even know me
