Track Name: 17
Cold and cracked hands are having a rough time writing in this winter's cold.
All I can think about is the wrinkles digging into my skin so old.
I'll keep tracing back every word and since the message you told, your place in my mind is empty, but your space hasn't been sold.

Your place in my mind is empty but your space hasn't been sold.

I need someone to be my sail cause I've spent plenty of time, being an anchor.
Sucked into the blue, swimming in thoughts of her.
These memories kill me, I see them so clearly…just like my happiness, I’m missing you dearly.

Though I wish it was all different, I’ll be ok with how it is.
Its not like I could change it…
I’ll have to come to terms with this.

Your place in my mind is empty but your space hasn’t been sold.

I need someone to be my sail cause I've spent plenty of time, being an anchor.
Sucked into the blue, swimming in thoughts of her.
These memories kill me, I see them so clearly…just like my happiness, I’m missing you dearly.
Track Name: It Would Be An Honor...
Snow fall ensues, like a blanket over you.
But you’ll forget about me soon…
What else can I do?

You left and made the snow melt away…
I’ll say what I have to say, cause it will never be the same.

Stay the same, forever this way…
Stay the same, forever.
Track Name: Useless
Its kind of like a title wave, but not as fresh or as cooling.
Its more just the heavy weight and you can’t breathe at all…not at all.

You never thought of yourself that way, this couldn’t be happening to me.
I’ll pretend to be happy, and I’ll grit my teeth.

I’ll try my best to hold on tight, but I’m afraid this is a useless fight…
I’ll sink into the hole that I dug for myself, and I’ll scream and I’ll yell until my lungs give out.

Its kind of like the thickest fog, and you can’t see at all…not at all.

And there’s no light here, but you…can’t beat the view.

You never thought of yourself that way, this couldn’t be happening to me.
I’ll pretend to be happy, I’ll just grit my teeth.

I’ll try my best to hold on tight, but I’m afraid this is a useless fight…
I’ll sink into the hole that I dug for myself, and I’ll scream and I’ll yell until my lungs give out.

Until my lungs give out.
Track Name: Better 1/2
You packed your bags today, its only a few more semesters…
I know that dear, but it still feels like forever…
Each time you leave, you take so much of me with you…
And I know you got to get away,
I hate this place it brings me down too.

Its so much harder when you’re away,
My streak of sunshine on a cloudy day.
I’m not the same person without my better half,
And I’ll count every second till I can hear your laugh, my better half.

The summer nights, we share.
You always fall asleep before me, your temple on my chest.
And I can smell the scent from the top of your head.
Its all memory… that will always keep me happy when you’re far away, and I’m feeling lonely.

Its so much harder when you’re away,
My streak of sunshine on a cloudy day.
I’m not the same person without my better half,
And I’ll count every second till I can hear your laugh, my better half.

I still dream about you…
Do you dream about me?
I can almost feel you…
Every time that I sleep.
All I want is to be with you….
But I know that can’t be.
Cause you went away to college so you could get a good degree.

But after that, we should be fine, and I’ll be with you all the time.
Maybe not, I’m so unsure, what if you get a job that lets you travel the world?
I know thats what you want, and thats what I want too…
For you to be happy, even if I’m not with you.

But, let me rephrase, we’ll never truly be apart.
We’ll have a constant connection between our souls and our hearts.
And even if we end up, on opposite sides of the earth…
You’ll always be my one true love,
Until they put us down in the dirt.
Track Name: Temperament
I still remember,
When I was a kid.

Saw the good in the world,
And none of the bull shit.

The years got darker,
And so did my temperament.

I watched myself,
Become what I hated.

A cynical wannabe,
With Misanthropic tendencies...
Pissed at myself and everyone around me.

I pushed away my friends and family,
I told myself I'd be better off this way.

I promise I'm getting better,
We're just going day by day.
I'm not sure where I'm headed now,
But I know we'll be okay.
I'm watching leaves change with the weather,
We're just going day by day.
No matter where I rest my head,
My temperament will never stay.

As I got older the anger turned to bitterness,
Just a shut in, trapped in my own abyss.

Alone and afraid, not sure how to deal with this,
Just a weak man who can't deal with his own shit.

Took a look in the mirror, put my fist through the wall,
This negativity wasn't helping me at all.

All this anger, all this pain.

I gotta get over it,
Something has to change.

I promise I'm getting better,
We're just going day by day.
Not sure where I'm headed now,
But I know we'll be okay.
I'm watching leaves change with the weather,
We're just going day by day.
No matter where I rest my head,
My temperament will never stay.

I promise I'm getting better,
We're just going day by day.
Not sure where I'm headed now,
But I know we'll be okay.
The leaves change with the weather,
We're just going day by day.
Where I lay my head,
My temperament will never stay.

Im watching leaves change with the weather,
We're just going day by day.
Wherever I lay my head,
My temperament will never stay.

OH!
Track Name: Dog Years
I’m placing blame where its due, and everything leads back to you.
I replay and trace the lines, but I can’t get back to better times.
Thinking this is finally through, but I should have know better with you.
That this just won’t die, no matter how hard I try.

I lie awake and dream of me and you, and what seems like better days.
But we both know, that things won’t change, there’s always something in the way.
I bite, I scream, but we’re still pulled apart at the seams.
How can I get it through to you?
There’s nothing I wouldn’t do.

The nights grow longer and I wonder, what the cold has brought to you.
We’re playing games, but its all the same, now this is it, that’s my cue…
To finally rid myself of you.
There is only one thing left to do.
One thing left.

I lie awake and dream of you and me, and what seems like better days.
But we both know, that things won’t change, there’s always something in the way.
I bite, I scream, but we’re still pulled apart at the seams.
How can I get it through to you?
There’s nothing I wouldn’t do.
