Track Name: Regret
Everyday that i sit in my bed,
Made of the pieces of the living,
and the dead.
I sit there alone,
sit there alone in my head,
Thinking of the things
that I've done,
and I've said.
But i will not regret what I've done.
Track Name: Same Way
Every stupid song by this stupid girl goes a little something like this:
"I wish were were together again.
Even if you treated me like property,
I still want you back,
if you just changed your ways."

(La da da da)
over and over again

Every single day
the words replay in the back of my head,
thinking over and over again,
how pathetic all these stupid girls
with these stupid songs all sound.
singing over and over again

(La da da da)
Over and over again.

I'm giving all my guts to you,
I'll give 'em if you need me to.
I'm giving all my guts to you
I'll give 'em if you need me to
want me to, want me to.

I'm the same way.
Track Name: Just Thought I'd Let You Know
Burning bridges,
burning trees,
burning everything you see,
making sure that nothing here
gets left out alive.
And i hope you like to be alone,
'cause that's the place you'll call your home.
After bridges are burnt through, may i ask
"How's the view?"

So you think i do not know,
and you think it doesn't show.
So i guess you're playing dumb,
but i don't think you're playing.

I'll say what i need to say,
It's not like that you'll care,
so I'll let you go,
and you'll walk right through me.

So, I see that family in your eyes,
you started off by telling lies.
Is there anything i can do to change that?
Am i the monster, or is he?
I know what happened, honestly,
I just hope he's treating them
better than he treated me.

So you think i do not know,
and you think it doesn't show.
So i guess you're playing dumb,
but i don't think you're playing.

I'll say what i need to say,
It's not like that you'll care,
so I'll let you go,
and you'll walk right through me.

I don't want anything from you
not even an apology.
I just want to let you know
the anger that's inside of me.

So you think i do not know,
and you think it doesn't show.
So i guess you're playing dumb,
but i don't think you're playing.

I'll say what i need to say,
It's not like that you'll care,
so I'll let you go,
and you'll walk right through me.
Track Name: Masterpiece
I don't want to talk about
the things you went through,
but the things that you went through
are what made you this way.
Taking the good on with the bad.
taking the happy with the sad,
and turning it into beauty some way.

Even though that you have passed,
and the time is passing too.
These moments in my head will last.
Soon I'll be coming home to you.

I don't want you to stay.
I'll see you soon.

If i was to be succinct
push these words all to their brink,
I'd have to say that we're your masterpiece.
Different people, different plays,
different families, different ways,
we're all here for you,
and that's okay.

Even though that you have passed,
and the time is passing too.
These moments in my head will last.
Soon I'll be coming home to you.

I don't want to talk about
the things you went through,
but the things that you went through
are what made you this way.

I don't want you to stay.
I'll see you soon.
Track Name: Hell's A Better Place To Be
(Meow)

Woke up the other day
in a burning lake of fire.
I won't concern myself with that.
I'll concern myself with you.
As the flames burn up my body,
and the demons eat my bones,
you will not hear me screaming.
You will not hear me, no, 'cause,
I don't care.
'cause i got you

You woke up the other day
knowing I'm in a lake of fire.
You won't concern yourself with that.
You'll concern yourself with you.
As the flames burn up my body,
and the demons eat my bones,
you will not hear you screaming.
You will not hear you, no, 'cause,
You don't care.
'Cause you got you.

Every single day
I'm burning here for you,
and every single day
it appears to
me that you don't care.

You woke up the other day
burning in a lake of fire.
I won't concern myself with that.
I won't concern myself with you.
As the flames burn up your body,
and the demons eat your bones,
you will not hear me screaming.
You will not hear me, no, cause,
I don't care.
'Cause i don't got you.
Track Name: My Apologies
What doesn't kill ya stronger,
or so they say.
So, I'll say it too,
and I'll sit right down.
Whatever you need, love,
let me know.
You don't need me?
Cool,
I'll sit right down.
So, you have your hooks and me.
I just hope i do not bleed.
I wouldn't want to make you too upset.
Could you pardon me?
But, dear i cannot see
from the blood that's gushing
out of my head.
And after that
i won't bother you
Anymore.

I'm coughing up blood
just to spite you.
And I'm thinking of ways
that i could die.
I could say all these things
that could hurt you,
but the only thing
I'll say is
goodbye.

Whatever you say
won't work on me.
I'm over this.
I'll sit right down.
I won't be your fool anymore,
so you can shut your mouth,
and sit right down.
So you had your hooks in me?
Oh, dear i could not see,
from the blinders you had over my head.
Could you pardon me,
but dear i need my keys.
Did you even listen to what i said?
After that
I won't bother you
Anymore.

I'm coughing up blood
just to spite you.
And I'm thinking of ways
that i could die.
I could say all these things
that could hurt you,
but the only thing
I'll say is
goodbye.

Whoa, no.
I apologize for interrupting you.
and after that,
i won't bother you
anymore.

I'm coughing up blood
just to spite you.
And I'm thinking of ways
that i could die.
I could say all these things
that could hurt you,
but the only thing
I'll say is
goodbye.
Track Name: Fool
I wish there was a way that I,
that i could call you my friends.
But, these feelings are too strong for me,
and i cannot pretend

that there's flowers in the trees
songs for us to sing,
and our beautiful harmonies
flying through the sky.
There is beauty to be seen.
Beautiful birds and bees,
and everything that was beautiful
suddenly has died.

You call me a fool,
and i call you my friends.

Look at how they talk to me.
Am i disillusioned?
So it seems.
Maybe I'm confusing this
with someone elses dream.

There's no flowers in the trees
songs for us to sing,
and no beautiful harmonies
flying through the sky.
There's no beauty to be seen.
No beautiful birds and bees,
and everything that's beautiful
is getting burned alive.

You call me a fool,
and i call you my friends.
You call me a fool.

I will not save your soul.

You call me a fool,
and i call you my friends.
Track Name: You
(You think it's all about power?)

You think it's all about power?
You think it's all about control?
I don't care either way,
I just want you off my door.
I could give a damn about all these plans
that everyone has made.
So, please take your time
and please unwind
while you watch me walk away.
Walk away.

Everyone wants you.
Everyone loves you.
Everyone wants you
for me.
Everyone wants you.
Everyone loves you.
Everyone wants you.

You think it's all about power.
You think it's all about control.
You think you know me
like you knew me before.
While you're inside
and picking sides,
I'll be far away.
I'll be fixing a drink,
and all I'll think is,
"Isn't this a lovely day?"

Everyone wants you.
Everyone loves you.
Everyone wants you
for me.
Everyone wants you.
Everyone loves you.
Everyone wants you.

I won't let you get the best of me
(You think it's all about power.)
when you're sitting right next to me
(You think it's all about power.)

Everyone wants you.
Everyone loves you.
Everyone wants you
for me.
Everyone loves you.
Everyone wants you.
Everyone wants you,
but me.
Track Name: Changin' (Bonus Track)
I got a million things to say,
but i don't know how to say them.
And, i wish they held some weight
in you thinking 'bout you changin'.
And i don't even know
and only you can change you.

I don't know if there's a thing
in here that's going to change, and
i don't know if i can think
of the words worth saying.
And i wish you all the best,
but i won't be prayin' for you.

You're not the only one to blame
in the mess we are a-makin',
and this silence has a sting,
a sting that's got me shakin'.
I don't have to show
and only you can change you.

I don't know if there's a thing
in here that's going to change, and
i don't know if i can think
of the words worth saying.
And i wish you all the best,
but i won't be prayin' for you.

I don't understand our ways,
but we won't be a-changin'.
We won't figure out our ways
so we won't be a-changin'
Only we can help us.

I don't know if there's a thing
in here that's going to change, and
i don't know if i can think
of the words worth saying.
And i wish you all the best,
but i won't be prayin' for you.
