Track Name: Leave Me Alone
Clean words, talk softer
I know I lost her
But alcohol brings pigs to slaughter
And I shout words that won't bounce off her

Soft words, hard liquor
She's gone, I'm bitter
But those dark eyes that always fit her
Are probably staring at my picture

Just leave me alone

You can drink yourself unconscious
It's just another empty promise
When your friends say you're over it with every shot
I'm at the bottom of this bottle, and my heart is in the last drop
There's nothing wrong with the way I live
You take and take, but you never give
I'm feeling sober for the first time in three whole years
I'll drown myself in alcohol and make you disappear

We said, "Forever"
We'd be together
We proudly failed in that endeavor
And you must think you're pretty clever

We'll see who's laughing
When I'm still happy
The smile I wear is not just acting
I'm better now it must be baffling

Just leave me alone

You can drink yourself unconscious
It's just another empty promise
When your friends say you're over it with every shot
I'm at the bottom of this bottle, and my heart is in the last drop
There's nothing wrong with the way I live
You take and take, but you never give
I'm feeling sober for the first time in three whole years
I'll drown myself in alcohol and make you disappear

And to you, I'm just a memory
And to me, I just gave everything
Just leave me alone

You can drink yourself unconscious
It's just another empty promise
When your friends say you're over it with every shot
I'm at the bottom of this bottle, and my heart is in the last drop
There's nothing wrong with the way I live
You take and take, but you never give
I'm feeling sober for the first time in three whole years
I'll drown myself in alcohol and make you disappear
So just leave me alone
Track Name: Second Guess
Hey there, I haven't seen you in a while
Without a stumble in your footstep, hazy eyes, a vacant smile
It's nice to see you not make such a scene
I really wish you'd be more careful, but you don't know what "careful" means

"Woah, slow down now! Let's pump the brakes."
Well, frankly my friend it's a little too late
To say that you're sorry
I'm sorry, but the damage is done

Watching as you kill yourself
You drag me into your own hell with you
And I just can't say no
I'm sorry this went how it did
But I've got nothing left to give to you
I've gotta let you go, gotta let you go

You find yourself again swimming at the bottom of another bottle
Did she put you in?
It's no less than you deserve, and no more than I'd expect
And you know I've never been one to second guess
The pity party that you threw for yourself was a smashing success
You're a smashing success
The moment I knew I could never believe a word you said

Watching as you kill yourself
You drag me into your own hell with you
And I just can't say no
I'm sorry this went how it did
But I've got nothing left to give to you
I've gotta let you go, gotta let you go

You just never stop
And I'm ready to drop
And this is what you wanted

Watching as you kill yourself
You drag me into your own hell with you
And I just can't say no (To hell with you)
I'm sorry this went how it did
But I've got nothing left to give to you
I've gotta let you go, gotta let you go

Watching as you kill yourself
You drag me into your own hell with you
And I just can't say no
I'm sorry this went how it did
But I've got nothing left to give to you
I've gotta let you go, I've got to let you go
Track Name: Follow Me
See me, here on this stage, I think I'm afraid
Of where this is going to take us
I don't know if I can bear baring my heart
To a world that won't understand this

Just keep singing along to the words to this song,
That's all I ask of you
While we're moving along, I'll be the voice in your ear
To keep you conscious, I'll always be here
To follow into the night, and we'll never go wrong
Everything will be alright

I can't meet these expectations
I'm just not the Savior
You've been asking me to be
My whole life is one big breakdown
I can't write them anymore
This is what I've become

Just keep singing along to the words to this song,
That's all I ask of you
While we're moving along, I'll be the voice in your ear
To keep you conscious, I'll always be here
To follow into the night, and we'll never go wrong
Everything will be alright

I could never be like them
And I don't know where I'm supposed to go...
Where I'll sleep tonight, if I'll get home
I'll be alright, right here on the road

Just keep singing along to the words to this song,
That's all I ask of you
While we're moving along, I'll be the voice in your ear
To keep you conscious, I'll always be here
To follow into the night, and we'll never go wrong
Everything will be alright, alright

This means the world to me
Track Name: Don't Flatter Yourself
I haven't slept in days, I keep myself awake
I keep these secrets safe, I'll hide my mind away
I lead a double life, I'm with you half the time
This is no way to live, it's just waiting to die

I guess you never grew up, just got older
But I won't let you soil my good name

And I'm trying to pretend
That all of my friends
Aren't liars and cheaters
Double-crossers and deceivers
And given your defense
I'm a liar at my best
And I don't have the strength to pick myself back up again

Focus on little things
Everyone just laughs at me
And all these years I've wasted
Living in this lie
Lock myself in my room
Haven't seen my friends in days
It's like I never even try
I'll bury myself alive

And I'm trying to pretend
That all of my friends
Aren't liars and cheaters
Double-crossers and deceivers
And given your defense
I'm a liar at my best
And I don't have the strength to pick myself back up again

It's too late to say I'm sorry
It's too late now

And all my friends, they know your name
And we both made the same mistakes
And you couldn't keep the promises you made
So let's just go our separate ways
There's nothing left for me to say except
How I always knew you were fake

And I'm trying to pretend
That all of my friends
Aren't liars and cheaters
Double-crossers and deceivers
And given your defense
I'm a liar at my best
And I don't have the strength to pick myself back up
Makes me think I've had enough
I don't know how I ever called you "friend."
Track Name: Drop Out
Can't you see me crawling?
I'm falling away from the pack that I swore I would lead
It's getting hard to breathe when you're staring at me
Waiting for me to burst at the seams

Trapped inside my own head,
I'll hide under my bed with the books that I read as a kid

So I'm giving up and giving in,
I'm just ending it before it begins
My confidence was shot from the start
I'm so weak, man, I'm falling apart
I am crashing so hard from this high
Now, I can't look myself in the eye
I'm ashamed I've become such a mess
I just can't live like this

Trouble's found its way, and much to my dismay
It's been bunking with me this whole year
Tearing at my mind, ask me if I feel fine
Can you tell my reply's insincere?

Nothing's best left unsaid, would you rather be dead
Than alone with the thoughts in your head?

So I'm giving up and giving in,
I'm just ending it before it begins
My confidence was shot from the start
I'm so weak, man, I'm falling apart
I am crashing so hard from this high
Now, I can't look myself in the eye
I'm ashamed I've become such a mess
I just can't live like this

Tell my mom I'm doing fine
Tell my dad I'll be alright
Tell the kids it's worth a try
But happiness can cost you your life

So I'm giving up and giving in,
I'm just ending it before it begins
My confidence was shot from the start
I'm so weak, man, I'm falling apart
I am crashing so hard from this high
Now, I can't look myself in the eye
I'm ashamed I've become such a mess
And I just can't live like this
