Track Name: To All My Friends
Well, I got my friends
And they're all I need until this world ends
And honestly I don't care if it does
Because the world doesn't care about me
The world doesn't care about love or opinion
Just the car you drive and the house that you live in
And we're all just pretending that we're okay

Someone get me out of here

Dear Sadness, I'm not giving in and
I won't let you win this time
Cuz' I've been here before late at night with a locked door Wondering why I deserve this
And I don't know where to go
After feelings have faded you left me hopeless and jaded

Another break up for a reason she barely even knows
I guess there's better fish in the sea and
I guess that they don't include me
The bobby pin you left on my night stand
Is driving me insane
But I can't sum up the courage to throw it away
I'm pathetic

Someone get me out of here

Dear Sadness, I'm not giving in and
I won't let you win this time
Cuz' I've been here before late at night with a locked door Wondering why I deserve this
And I don't know where to go
After feelings have faded you left me hopeless and jaded

You're not alone
Track Name: Legend of the West
You're a parasite
You're living off the bottom of everyone you come in contact with
Just go run and hide
Hide behind a thousand lies seen as truth
Lies are running out of time

You're afraid of the truth
But the truth will set you free

You said you wanted order
But tell me what is wrong with your opinion
You said you wanted answers
But you'll be proved in wrong in the end

Im losing my sight
Of what is wrong and what is right
Im tired of this broken fight
Im ending this tonight
Because you will never understand

Is anybody else listening?
Listen to me.

You said you wanted order
But tell me what is wrong with your opinion
You said you wanted answers
But you'll be proved in wrong in the end
Track Name: Mom, I Think I Pissed Off the Crips Again...
16 years since I said I was sorry
I can't help but feel a little to blame
For the way that you treat me
You said you would call me
But every time it ends the same

It's been a long year and I can't wait to go home
To my bed where I'm still unknown
We've spent so long here and all the lessons that we learned
We're leaving them all behind
Maybe next time I'll get it right

And I can't remember the last time that I cared
About anything at all or giving a fuck
About the way that you treat me just try and deceive me
But you'll find out that you're all out of luck

We're leaving this all behind

It's been a long year and I can't wait to go home
To my bed where I'm still unknown
We've spent so long here and all the lessons that we learned
We're leaving them all behind
Maybe next time I'll get it right
Track Name: Missing Puzzle Piece (Acoustic)
You were my best friend
Without a doubt
But now you left me stranded
Cuz' you chose your image over me
You ran so far away from your problems
You fell off the side of the world
And splashed into the ocean
But you can't even swim

You talk the talk but can't walk to save your life
You say we're best friends when in my back's a knife

I saw you drowning, it caught my eye
But it really tore my heart in two
I couldn't help myself I had to help you
So, I reached out my hand
And yelled "Hold on tight!"
You said don't help me
So now I can't be sorry

You talk the talk but can't walk to save your life
You say we're best friends when in my back's a knife

The one thing I learned after writing this song
Is no matter how hard life gets
Things will always be okay
