As I grow older, I find myself more unsure than I have ever been before.
No sense of direction or motivation to go on.
Will I end up like the neighbors?
Working dead end jobs to feed their children;
to feed their addicitons.
At least there's a place in life for them.
I'm just another nameless face
pondering life from another place.
Keeping quiet and out of reach,
monitoring everything they say.
I'm just another nameless face
wondering what it's like to really live.
It's safer not to leave.
I'll sit alone and listen in to keep myself at ease,
from downstairs.
Track Name: Easter
If time was like the water,
then you put the ripples in mine.
And I was never better
than in the time we spent together.

I can't pretend to be happy.

They say that the good die young.
They say that he's in a better place.
You can call me selfish,
but it wasn't his fucking time.
Track Name: Northpark
It's hard to sleep at night with all these thoughts running rampant through my head.
All i really wanted to know was how you were doing.
What's the weather like where you are?
I know you're not all that far, but anyone else wouldn't be able to tell the difference.
It's been a while since we've said anything other than "hello."
I haven't seen you in so long that I'm starting to forget your face and all the little things that you did to crack me up and make me smile.
It's funny how life gets in the way.
Best friends who never got a chance to ever actually be that.
It's been years since we met, and it seems like it's been even longer since I've seen you.
I guess that growing up means giving up on making time for things that used to matter.
I guess that growing up means giving up and giving in and becoming the person you always fucking hated,
Here's to best friends.
Track Name: 8AM
I often find myself wondering what life would have been like had I left this place.
Would I have been any less happy, or just as mediocre as I am?
Sure, there's a lot that would have changed.
But there's a lot that'd stay the same.
I often find myself wondering if I'd still be here.
Becausee sometimes it seems like going on isn't such a good idea at all.
And I'm still down.
I'm still empty.
I'm so fucking sick of searching for nothing.
