Track Name: Road Signs
"What are you doing?" is a question that I ask myself often now
Wasing away all the time I'm given I beat myself down
Mapping routes, act it's figured all out
Take a seat, what's that difference in one week?

Why do I feel so tired?
When all I do is sit on the sidelines
I've got it all, what everyone wants
but I'm messed up and can't read the road signs

"What are you doing?" is a question that I ask myself often now
Spending my nights, wishing that I was someone else
Speaking words that I'm not proud of
Spinning lies, acting parts I made up

Why do I feel so tired?
When all I do is sit on the sidelines
I've got it all, what everyone wants
but I'm messed up and can't read the road signs

I bury my head in my sheets
To escape from my insecurity
Quarter life, though that crisis was a lie
But these future plans are making battle signs x2

"What are you doing?" is a question that I ask myself often now
Wasing away all the time I'm given I beat myself down

Why do I feel so tired?
When all I do is sit on the sidelines
I've got it all, what everyone wants
but I'm messed up and can't read the road signs
So I lay down and close my eyes
And attempt to compose what's in my mind
It all feels empty, I'm a ship with no sea
Is there anyone giving out clarity?
Track Name: My Usually
Waking up feeling more tired than when I went to sleep
Is this turning into my usually?
Brush my teeth, make my bed, fix my hair and let the routine
Fill me up to block out the anxiety

But then on my side, take a look at me
When everyone still acts like they are just 17
I don’t play that league, but somehow I’m still earning trophies

I’m waking up hung over again
And it’s easy to see that everything has changed in a weekend
Don’t blame me, don’t blame me, oh yes blame me
My pride is taking over again
Just a test of my faith, there will be no need to worry
But deep inside, deep inside, I’m burning alive

Taking walks by myself try and work through these battle scenes
Directed by my insecurity and stupidity
I tell myself “wait it out” there really is not one thing
That I won’t put off ‘til the morning, I’m so damn good at avoiding

What’s really going on, in this life of mine
I’ll put off answering that for just the millionth time
It’s not hard to find, an excuse to go and self-destruct tonight

I’m waking up hung over again
And it’s easy to see that everything has changed in a weekend
Don’t blame me, don’t blame me, oh yes blame me
My pride is taking over again
Just a test of my faith, there will be no need to worry
But deep inside, deep inside, I’m burning alive

And now I’m feeling lost and alone, can’t make it on my own
All I need is someone by my side to help me through the night

Waking up feeling more tired than when I went to sleep x2

I’m waking up hung over again
And it’s easy to see that everything has changed in a weekend
Don’t blame me, don’t blame me, oh yes blame me
My pride is taking over again
Just a test of my faith, there will be no need to worry
But deep inside, deep inside, I’m burning alive
Track Name: Your Love
Tuesday Night, and I am lost in your eyes again
It always feels like were getting trapped and neither wins
I try to fight, try to keep my mind from slippin
It always feels like I felt a breeze but there's no wind

But then I re...
But then I re...
Then I recall your love
Then I recall your love

Friday Night and I am stumbling home again
It always feels like I'm getting lost out on the weekend
I try to stay, to stay in line but I can't help it
It always feels like there's something broke that I fix

But then I re...
But then I re...
Then I recall your love
Then I recall your love

And now I'm finding myself taking walks at night
Hoping I'll see you
Dreaming of those long locks so much, so much that I sing you
In my head, your in my head so much
So much that it makes me sing you
Your in my head, in my head so much
So much that it makes me hate you

But then I re... x4
Then I recall your love x4
