Track Name: Saccharine
You said I know nothing
Well, I'm tired of your bullshit
Quit hanging around me
Stop acting like a misfit
I wish I was better
I wish I knew myself
This feeling was so saccharine
Now it's nothing heartfelt

I hope you know what it's like
This phantom pain in the night
Aching but you got no heart
I hope you don't tear yourself apart

I bet you knew better
You've always been so wise
It wouldn't matter if you felt different
I don't wanna see those delicate eyes

I hope you know what it's like
This phantom pain in the night
Aching but you got no heart
I hope you don't tear yourself apart

Don't paint the sky red with your blood
It won't make things better
Don't waste your time holding on
It'll stay the same forever

I hope you know what it's like
This phantom pain in the night
Aching but you got no heart
I hope you don't tear yourself apart
Track Name: Drive in the Night
I've been damned with bad luck
I'm bummed 'cause I'm fucked up
I'm insecure, I'm growing cold everyday
You keep calling me over
But I can never be sober
To talk to you, I drink my fears away

You drive me home
Down that dark and narrow road
My gut is telling me something
I just gotta let you know
What I want, what I feel
You made my night surreal
But I'm too quiet in the passenger seat

I'm always conflicted
Whenever you're around me
I know you want someone else instead
I just really wanna get stoned
But I don't wanna break my own
Promises to get your face out my head

I wanna do donuts
Then flip my car on the freeway
But I don't how to drive
So I can't do it anyway
Lie about how I feel,
Say it felt unreal
And then, chill out in the passenger seat

Don't want this time to end
Don't wanna say I'm leaving
We should stay out and drive in the night
I swear I felt something
Hope it's more than nothing
I should give it up and get a life
But I'm trying to keep you satisfied

You drove me home
When I felt so alone
I just wanna tell you something
But I think you always know
What I want, what I feel
You make me feel surreal
So, I'll stay quiet for the rest of the drive
Track Name: The End is Nigh
Out by the poisonous waters
Up in the faceless skies
Let down, there's a hole in the ground
Riptide, there's a hole in my side
Keep shooting till we got nothing
Keep lurking at the ocean below
Get high, see my baby in the sky
Get low, sing my libido

I said I'd go to nowhere land on Friday night
My life is over and I'm not surprised
Didn't know I'd get carried away by the fire in the sky
Keep grooving and don't stop moving for me

She whispered
Into my ears
Dropped into the ocean
Was greeted by tears
I've got the shakes
My burdens grow
She asked me to write her a song
But into the gallows, I go

I've lost interest in the faith of our kind
I'll let the seagulls free my soul one last time
Chip chap, paddy whack, my end is nigh
Keep grooving and don't stop moving for me

Lie down and wash away my sins

The kingdom doors were never wide
My friends, they leave me for the doors of paradise
But that's okay, I've got the fire in the sky
Keep grooving and don't stop moving for me
Track Name: Untitled
I don't wanna go back to school
I'm scared 'cause I don't want to be the fool
They're screaming out and deafening my ears
I don't wanna go back to school

I'm growing distant from my best friends
I hope they find success in the end
Consumed by cruelty and weak desires
I'll stay ashamed until my end

Do I think too much
Have I lost my touch
I'm too caught up with sad stories
Do you even care
About my despair
I'm too caught up being boring

As you may see, I'm better off with just me
I'm better off alone with my peace
I hope you know I tried my best to comply
But I'm better off with just me for now
Just give me time to rest in peace
Track Name: Drive in the Night (Radio Edit)
I've been damned with bad luck
I'm bummed 'cause my life sucks
I'm insecure, I'm growing cold every day
You keep calling me over
But I can never be sober
To talk to you, I drink my fears away

You drive me home
Down that dark and narrow road
My gut is telling me something
I just gotta let you know
What I want, what I feel
You made my night surreal
But I'm too quiet in the passenger seat

I'm always conflicted
Whenever you're around me
I know you want someone else instead
I just really wanna get stoned
But I don't wanna break my own
Promises to get your face out my head

I wanna do donuts
Then flip my car on the freeway
But I don't how to drive
So I can't do it anyway
Lie about how I feel,
Say it felt unreal
And then, chill out in the passenger seat

Don't want this time to end
Don't wanna say I'm leaving
We should stay out and drive in the night
I swear I felt something
Hope it's more than nothing
I should give it up and get a life
But I'm trying to keep you satisfied

You drove me home
When I felt so alone
I just wanna tell you something
But I think you always know
What I want, what I feel
You make me feel surreal
So, I'll stay quiet for the rest of the drive
