Track Name: A Million Times
Doing it alone
made it something I didn’t want it to be
and now I'm stuck in a habit of misery

when I think of what I should have done differently
to the people around me

I know I’ve said a million times
that I’m fine
but I lied

constantly
to the people around me

a million times

"I wish you'd all just admit,
that you'd be better off
if I didn't exist"
it seemed like a rational thought
even between the lines
I’m the only one
counting the times
Track Name: Half-Smile
It’s funnier to think about now
than it was back then
the way you half-smiled
when you said you didn’t
want to see me again

I’ve been trying to get
that half-smile
off my mind
this whole time
Track Name: Twelve Screens
I couldn't pay attention
to any one thing
as my eyes glazed
over all twelve screens

As I jogged between
fast food and acne cream
it seemed obvious to me

it was just twelve different people
all telling me

I don’t look good enough
I’m not smart enough
I don’t own enough
I don’t fuck enough
every single one
Track Name: Over and Over Again
There's no TV show on enough
There's no drugs that work long enough
There’s no number of times I can clean my place enough
Or even work days to go by slow enough

To distract me from where I'm at
or distract me from where I'm not

Time isn't moving any differently
but it still feels like I’m living the same day
over and over again
Track Name: Those Eyes
What I'd give
to have your eyes
staring back at me

Its unfair
but whats ever fair

how would you even know
if I can only stare

I won’t even bother
I’ve got nothing to offer
I’ll just sit and wonder

What it’d take
to make my mouth
say a word to you
Track Name: In the Back of Your House
In the mirror
In the bathroom
In the back of your house

I looked myself right in the eyes
and it finally seemed to occur to me

Why things always end up the same
and why I always react the same

so I said it aloud but with no one around

all there is to blame
is your awful fucking temper
Track Name: Laundry Detergent
While I was I walking home
I caught a familiar scent
It took a couple blocks to remember
but it was someone using
your same detergent

You always used that same kind
but it hasn’t been around in a long time
I never even asked to make that
connection in my mind

Next time I’m walking home
I’ll wonder where it went
because I’ll always remember
the smell of that laundry detergent
Track Name: I Avoided It
I didn’t want to see your face
because I knew I wouldn’t enjoy it
the best part about this place
Is that I can easily avoid it

so I avoided it

Yeah I saw your call
but I guess I ignored it
just the thought of it all
made it easier to avoid it

so I avoided it

I’m more surprised by the fact
you thought i wouldn’t act like that
Like I wouldn’t do what
I've always been so good at

so I avoided it
Track Name: I Picked a Side
I never tried
things seemed alright
I’d rather feel slighted
than put up fights

There were lot a lot of things
I know I said I’d do

I picked a side
so at least I tried
I decided
how to make things right

There were a million things
I know I said I’d do
but just saying that
never made them true

I could just sit here for the rest of my life
maybe then I’d feel some peace of mind
but I’d rather put something on the line

So I picked a side
Track Name: One of Them
I always felt like
I was one of them

I was treated
like one of them
just a person in the background

I’ve gotten used to being one of them
just a person in the background

apart from everything in front of me
in the background

I’ll never have to face things that I can’t see
in the background
