Track Name: Chin Up, Slugger
Wake, take this pill and you'll feel better
No you'll never be just like the other kids
Wait, in a white walled doctors office
You won't always feel so toxic after this

But they don't know the half of it
The weight you carry in your sunken chest
Gawkers and onlookers will say
It'd be convenient if you weren't like this

So keep your chin up slugger in the morning you'll feel better
The hardest part is getting to sleep

Drink, anything to numb the feeling
Force a smile like everything is alright
Stand, on a ledge sixty-five feet above the ground
And think of taking your life
You can step back from the edge, you are stronger than this
I don't know you, but I know I've been there
Learn to live for yourself, and fuck everyone else
It's never easy, but tell me what is

No they don't know the half of it
The weight you carry in your sunken chest
Gawkers and onlookers will say
It'd be convenient if you weren't like this

It's a sad sick shame that they can profit off of sadness
At every corner pharmacy
And when the gunshot finally goes off no one ever seems to notice
The signs were always clear to see

So keep your chin up, slugger in the morning you'll feel better
The hardest part is getting to sleep
Track Name: Bar Tab
Truth, it found me
When I was all alone
You crawled out of the window
Now this house is not a home

You swore that you would be there when I woke
So tell me now where were you when I woke

Washing someone off my skin has never felt quite this good before
Now I'm doing all the things that I missed out on
Like picking up the bar tab, and waking up with no one else around
It's been a year without you, and I think I'm happy now

I've been drinking by myself
Better than living in this hell

You swore that you would be there when I woke
So tell me where were you when I woke

Washing someone off my skin has never felt quite this good before
Now I'm doing all the things that I missed out on
Like picking up the bar tab, and waking up with no one else around
It's been a year without you, and I think I'm happy now
From picking up the bar tab, and waking up with no one else around
It's been a year without you, and I think I'm happy now
Track Name: Drywall
Waiting on the curb
Sober and saving face
Hoping for the worst
I should have walked away
But you looked so cool
In white converse and cut off jeans
Jaded and hard to please
It means nothing to me

Spent most of my evening with you on the front porch drinking
Staring out at street lit pavement
You always keep me waiting

Holes in the drywall
As you stumble down the hall
Burns in the carpet
From your best friend's cigarette
The drugs are wearing off
I know I should be bitter but I'm not
Still waiting for you to call

Spent most of my evening with you on the front porch drinking
Staring out at street lit pavement
You always keep me waiting

You said you wanted change
But didn't have the guts to change a god damn thing
Why'd you make me wait
If you were never coming back here anyway
When I saw you on the train
I didn't have the guts to say a thing

Spent most of my evening on the front porch drinking
Staring out at street lit pavement
You always keep me waiting
