Track Name: This is Getting Old
I've been talking to my demons, 'cause they know me best
And I can't see myself getting through this mess
The days turn into months it doesn't fucking matter 'cause, you're still gone, you're still gone.

Late nights get the best of me
And my bad habits keep me from falling asleep
Nothing matters anyway, I'm a mess, a disgrace, I guess I'll see you at the gates.

You burnt down every single bridge I built, ignored every stupid word I spilled, and now I have, nothing to show for this.
Nothing to show for this.

Late nights get the best of me (Late nights get the best of me)
And my bad habits keep me from falling asleep
Home alone again and I don't know what to do
I've been putting this off for far too long
Even though it's no consultation to you.

Late nights get the best of me
And my bad habits keep me from falling asleep
Nothing matters anyway, I'm a mess, a disgrace, I guess I'll see you at the gates.
Track Name: Five Months
I'm not sure if this is the way that I want to live
Just tie the anchor, see if I'll sink or swim.

Whatever you are in my head, whatever you are in that bed
Just know that I won't see you again
And will avoid the things we did.

I got a long day ahead of me, so I best up and leave
We both know I could really use the sleep.

Whatever you are in my head, whatever you are in that bed
Just know that I won't see you again
And will avoid the things we did
Oh no, Oh no
Leave me where I am and let my body take its toll.

With knots inside my stomach and knots around my neck
I swear, I swear, I won't fuck up again.

Five months have passed and I'm still stuck in the wrong place
You say that you were right and I'm the one that changed
I'm not sure if this is the way that I want to live
Just tie the anchor, see if I'll sink or swim.
Track Name: The Winter of Discomfort
In some ways you haven't changed, but most of all I stayed the same
You wake to another hopeless day wishing things would go your way
And I could tell you everything you want to hear, but it wouldn't matter because the way things were that year.

It took awhile, but I fucking said it before, you knew me well
It took awhile, you lied but I said it before
I didn't want this to happen.

I'm not gonna retrace these steps
To see where I lost track
'Cause I've been down these roads before, I can't come back

Sleep off my headache and hope tomorrow will be a better day
Stitch every hole in your heart to take the pain away.
Track Name: Pull-Out Couches and TV Dinners
Keeping distance was never a good cure for this
You're only a small fraction of the things I'll miss
If I packed my bags and moved away, would there be anything left to say? to say.

You're not as perfect as you let your lies believe
Guess you could say it got the best of me
And I've been sitting for awhile now making sense of this, but I can't

And I lay here thinking what the hell did I do wrong?
And I ask myself why it took so god damn long.

Stay for while
I need you here, whether you like it or not.
Track Name: Hollow
I know I've messed up more times than I could count
I know I've been acting different, so let me out
Thoughts burn in my head, words I couldn't have said, I'm so sick and tired can I just lay in bed? lay in bed.

I'll hold my breath for a moment and swallow my pride
Until you look in the mirror to see all the flaws you hide.

And which one of you am I speaking to?
Is it the one who told me all the broken promises to get me through, one more year?

Where do I stand?
I'm at the bottom of this rope, reaching for someones hand
To pull me up, and drag me out, of this mess I made, This mess I made.

She said get well soon
Get well soon
Get well soon.
