Track Name: Sweets
I get this funny when I close my eyes
I haven’t felt this way since I last got high
I want to see where you’re going
Scared to lose you from my reach
Every smile that you’ve shown
Makes me lose my speech

All the time and space that haunts me from my past
Can’t keep the wolves at bay and moving too damn fast
It’s not enough to know you’re right here
Here I’ll wait and swallow down my fear

Cold warmth surrounds me
like the dark that lights my path
Every now and then
the feeling presses on my chest
This pleasant state reminds me
of Empty feelings that were left

All the time and space that haunts me from my past
Can’t keep the wolves at bay and moving too damn fast
It’s not enough to know you’re right here
Here I’ll wait and swallow down my fear

And I’m so scared of never knowing where you are
Pleasant feelings bring me back
It’s not your fault, this cross to bear
Lonely days without the sweetness
Track Name: I Don't Like It
Never near but always here
A vacant face in my place
Decisions to stay
If you left, I wouldn’t blame

And I can’t explain what’s on my mind
The time it takes me to know you’re not fine

I’d like to think it’s not my fault
Because of me when it stopped
Through those times I had tried
To deal with me in my mind

Fleeting days creates this maze
Keeps us where we want to be
What you think scares me
Every word, different meaning

And I can’t explain what’s on my mind
The time it takes me to know you’re not fine

I’d like to think it’s not my fault
Because of me when it stopped
Through those times I had tried
To deal with me in my mind
Track Name: Do You Get It?
Pale skin brighter than today
But modern sin keeps me far away
Never fair to feel the way I do
Guilt is spared whenever I’m with you

I’m in the way
I’m saving face
I’m living proof
Of disgrace

It’s on your face, I see it everyday
Like a cheat that keeps me from defeat
It keeps my brain from running all the while becoming
Sicker than I want it, better than I’d admit

Drink it in when I act this way
Under your skin I wonder why you stay
I’ll reconcile any pain I cause
It’s my denial of all the time you’ve lost

I’m in the way
I’m saving face
I’m living proof
Of disgrace

It’s on your face, I see it everyday
Like a cheat that keeps me from defeat
It keeps my brain from running all the while becoming
Sicker than I want it, better than I’d admit
Track Name: No
Acting out, a cheap excuse
For every moment of my abuse
I can’t stop and say, “I’m sorry for the pain”
If I stop and think about it I know I’ll go insane

“I’m sorry” is never quite enough
But it wouldn’t feel so good if it wasn’t quite this tough

Happiness is hard when you’re with me
I can’t imagine the way I must seem
Trying hard not to show
Drowning fast in the undertow

Love can make you wrong
So I’m sorry for all I’ve done
It wouldn’t be so hard, and I’d love you all the same
If I didn’t think so hard and try to place the blame

“I’m sorry” is never quite enough
But it wouldn’t feel so good if it wasn’t quite this tough

Happiness is hard when you’re with me
I can’t imagine the way I must seem
Trying hard not to show
Drowning fast in the undertow
