Track Name: Lane
Classic case of it's me, it's not you
I can't help if it's the shit that I do
Pull you in, set your head wrong
Fuck it up and now it's all gone

I never meant to lead you so far down

Hardly the one, fucked up and wrong
I need a change of heart to ease my bones
I'm fairly certain, no uses just rotten
I'd like to believe I'm on a road to recovery

Believe in the words, unlikely heard
This was something I could never choose on my own
Loosing composure, I said that it's over
I've been stuck in the mind set of move on and mend

Blame it all on me(On me)
Blame it all on the things I say
Blame it all on me (On me)
Blame it all on how I feel today

Blame it all on me(Blame it all on me)
Blame it all on the things i say
Blame it all on me(On me)
I'll take the blame on you feel today

Hardly the one, fucked up and wrong
I need a change of heart to ease my bones
I'm fairly certain, no uses just rotten
I'd like to believe I'm on a road to recovery
Track Name: Tact
I fucked up again
I'm trying so hard to make amends
But you're pushing further and further away.
What we had just seemed so surreal
Now I'm being pulled back to life
If it wasn't for the way you make me feel
Id say lets try this one more time

So here it goes again
It will never be just friends
Twisting my words
Its the tact you lack
You fail to see the depth I chose
An uphill struggle
With this approach
Its the tact you lack

I speak in ways that are different
Take your time don't regret this
I hear your words with questions
Always with poor placement
A simple mind with judgement
You took a risk and with this
I laid it out. You took me down
And at our best we were restless

I can't undo what I've done
And I tried my best
that's not enough
I'm stuck between you and no rest
Track Name: Hot-n-Ready
I can see that we weren't meant to be.
I can now feel it in my bones
It's not that I'm better off alone
It just that it doesn't feel right
So what am I to you?
What do you see when you look at me?
These words will hurt
Cause the truth lies in these lines

I'll sing this song with a melody
So you get the fucking best of me
No statement
Or replacement
Sense the aggression
Learn your lesson

I needed time to grow on my own
To figure out what's real to me
I know it's not a dream.
It's become my own damn reality
I no longer harbor false hope.
In what was once called broken
With words unspoken.
You're no longer my token

Chorus

Was it something I didn't say?
Would it matter either way?
It could go gone on for days
But Ill never let it go this time around
Track Name: Content
And I'm still waiting for this to crash and burn.
Cause I can't feel this content
without being down in return.
and I held my breath for so long
I've collapsed all the lungs of friends
trying to give me air
And I've put them through so much hell
It's good to know that they still care...

Chorus
You've been pacing in my head
Showing faces in all the right places
Corners of my mind, I never thought you'd find
Corners of my mind, I had to give it time

Verse
and I've learned what it's like
To lose it all, to gain something back
When I look at you.
Too good to be true
And I'm not sure if it's right
Or if it's wrong
All I know is that
I'm content with this
After half of a year!

Chorus

Bridge
This seems so unrehearsed
And it scares me to think
I could lose it all again
So I won't read into this but I know were on the same page
Track Name: Takos Tuesday
Deep pockets won't get you out of this mess.
Fill one hand with shit the other with a wish
In hopes that I'll hold your hand,
But you know I tried my best
Exhausted says nothing, I couldn't believe
A different perspective is all I need
This point of view just seems so wrong
Now you can relate when I'm gone

I think I said too much
This isn't what I wanted
I lost my sense I'm out of touch
Reasons I couldn't resist them

You're the worst at making excuses
Followed by time
We took one step forward
Now we're two steps behind
If I had a chance at changing their do the best at that
I'll lay it on the table, but I have to face the facts
Track Name: Tug-o-War
It's the same shit just different days
I'm sorry if I caused any confusion
I always thought id be a waste of space
But believe me its not what I wanted

This cliche catch phrase I know it was wrong. The last thing I present to you is this song.
And if I wasn't sure that this would be. It's my last chance to escape your reality

I'll pick myself up and then move on
I can't explain exactly what went wrong.
But in the end I know that ill be fine.
Just like the thought of you, ill push it out of my mind

The day I stop caring is the day you'll need me there.
It wouldn't make much sense to think that this was fair
Track Name: Lane (bedside edition)
Classic case of it's me, it's not you
I can't help if it's the shit that I do
Pull you in, set your head wrong
Fuck it up and now it's all gone

I never meant to lead you so far down

Hardly the one, fucked up and wrong
I need a change of heart to ease my bones
I'm fairly certain, no uses just rotten
I'd like to believe I'm on a road to recovery

Believe in the words, unlikely heard
This was something I could never choose on my own
Loosing composure, I said that it's over
I've been stuck in the mind set of move on and mend

Blame it all on me
Blame it all on the things I say
Blame it all on me
Blame it all on how I feel today

Blame it all on me
Blame it all on the things i say
Blame it all on me
I'll take the blame on you feel today

Hardly the one, fucked up and wrong
I need a change of heart to ease my bones
I'm fairly certain, no uses just rotten
I'd like to believe I'm on a road to recovery
