Can't Stop 03:34
Someday I’ll meet, someone like me Thoughtful and charming You’ll be a memory I can’t stop I won’t stop I can’t stop I won’t stop I can’t breathe, my heart hurts Keep on crying for you I can’t make you feel the same way as when she calls you, you’re so happy I can’t stop I won’t stop I can’t stop I won’t stop I can’t breathe, my face is numb Keep on trying to show you all the dotted lines, I wish I’d cut a million times My honesty would never help if you knew how much I hate myself You’ll show her, what I wrote you She’ll be so proud of you I can’t stop I won’t stop I can’t stop I won’t stop I can’t breathe, I’m shaking Keep on begging for you

Oh she’s the flavor of the night Leggings tight You cross the floor to make a move You trace your body to her grooves I’ll just stare at her lanky blonde hair I’m ducking out, I gotta leave I smear my lipstick on your sleeve I should never feel the way I felt before How we spent last night had me assured Hope you’re alone Hope you’re a lonely, lonely boy Now my stomach sinks and yet I take another drink Won’t play it cool to pass the time While you forget that I’m alive Yeah, it makes me sick to watch you play every trick You look at me to step aside Like I’m an ugly sore you hide Every word I say, makes me a bitch Keep on scratching that insecurity itch Hope you’re alone Hope you’re a lonely, lonely boy Like a broken record we’ll repeat this ’till we run out of time Look at me like last Saturday when you said everything was fine Claim I’m overreacting once again My pain pays for the bed you’ll fuck her in Hope you’re alone Hope you’re a lonely, lonely

Fragile 02:42
Attention slip I loose my grip Don’t watch me as I start my slow decline You are everything I know and you don’t belong with with her You are everything, I love you but you don’t belong to her And she smiled to sweet and felt complete Nothing ever shook her fragile mind You are everything I know and you don’t belong with with her You are everything, I love you but you don’t belong to her Now I’m a tree with withered leaves branches broken, rotting at the core You are everything I know and you don’t belong with with her You are everything, I love you but you don’t belong to her
4.
Sinking to the black hole Cut me from your shadow You hide I’ll shrink clotting my blood in the sink I could speculate who’s been where I’ve been laying Dig my nails into the chair Your concern is my care I don’t deserve your love You don’t deserve my flaws Who is the most qualified Tell me the truth this time No one ever loved you like her Every girl, lie facing your wall Will never, ever know It was the color I chose Every girl, to stare At your ceiling at night will dream about the lie you’ve been building in her eyes No one ever loved you like her
5.
I like you You want me Lock my gaze Mask my pain Take my hand Tug my clothes Bring me home Do that to me Take my hand Tug my clothes Lock my hips Tease my lips Make me feel I could be Something more Do that to me Cloak your fears in your sheepskin Bite down hard With innocence Make me feel I could be something more Do that to me

Preacher 03:35
Calm yourself down now Calm yourself down now Swallow my emotions Fracture my aloneness Hiding in the basement Hiding in the basement Will you ever find me praying for the pavement? Preacher Preacher Preacher Shaky on the guard rail Shaky on the guard rail Buried in the ocean Hands inside my pockets Preacher Preacher Preacher Black Hole. Death toll. Black Hole. Death toll. Black Hole. Death toll. I am dead. Let me die.
