Track Name: Sailboat Drawing on a Coffee Table
Sail That ship the water
And float off onto the sea
Don't leave me behind tonight
Cause you don't want to believe
But sail your ship in the water
Sail your ship in the water

Don't sail sail that ship on the seafloor
Cause I can't see you anymore
Don't sail that ship on the seafloor
Cause I can't feel you anymore

Don't leave me behind cause I don't wanna see a better world then this
Don't leave me behind cause I don't wanna see a better world then this
Track Name: Last December
Where'd you go
I don't see you around no more
Where were you last December

Who are you now
I'm very curious about the lines on your face
They make me wonder what made you change

I don't see you around no more
My ears are ringing with a storm

You're nothing but a shadow Now you are disguise for the darkness in my eye
Leaving is the best thing you could've done showed me a lot about my life
I know you don't like us and that's alright you're such an enigma all the time
Everything I see is nothing but resentment in your eyes

I don't see you around no more
My ears are ringer with a storm

I miss your face
I miss the freckles on your skin
I miss the smile you'd give me on Sunday
And I don't see you no more
Track Name: Burning with a Monkey on his Back
Now every time you see him there dead blank stare well he's been burning
And every time you see him dead on the floor in your dreams he's no more he's been snorting
He's almost there give it an hour or two and that dream will come true
Yeah he's been there with nothing to do but watch and let it go no purpose

Now I see him he's been dying on the surface
Trying to find a purpose outta things that have no purpose
He's been dying on the inside every single day
Fucking up on almost every thing he says
He's been smoking for so long that it's a habit
Hard to kill the elephant when he's trying to forget it
Monkey on is back has been nothing but a problem
Too bad that he's fucked and he'll never get it off him
He's been trying to forget all the mistakes he made
But it's hard when the sickness is etched in your brain
addiction is nothing but a problem to the family and fiends who wanna get it off him fuck him I don't need him I have myself and I
His fucking sickness does not comply to my mind stake
I say stay on your own cause your the only one you got from this point on

Yeah he's been burning ,burning, he's been burning he's been burning on the edge of this melody
Track Name: Sad Shit
Break the door down
Everyone in the house is going crazy
Rip my lungs out I can scream only for a little while
Before I die, Before I die

I'll kill myself put the bad memories away
I'll Rip my lungs out and give it to you you take my breath away
For awhile, Only for a little while

I wonder what heavens like when everyone's fucked up and so are you
I'll know for a little while when I die and everyone dances on my grave

Leave me in the ground and I'll stay everyones gonna die some day anyways
Put my make up on real nice make everyone ethnic I was never depressed and dead

Have another off day keep going through life like everything's okay
Only for a little while till I take my breath away
And you'll die, and you'll die soon enough with me

Yeah I'm fine
I'm perfectly fine
I said I'm fine
I'm fine
Track Name: Push me through the dark
Do you think my family would be ashamed if I decided to die in this hole
My friend have always laughed so what would change the fact if I wasn't here anymore
So kill me please I can't do this anymore
So kill me please I can't do it on my own

I'd die tonight If I Could see the light
I'd die tonight If I could see my light

Give me on more shot and I'll make it Push me through the dark to take it
Let me be everything I need to be
Let me feel your love one more time kiss me on the mouth and I'll lie right in your arms again

You're the only thing that makes me smile anymore
So kiss me please and make me put it away

Make me live tonight so you can be my light
Make me live tonight so you can be my light

Give me on more shot and I'll make it Push me through the dark to take it
Let me be everything I need to be
Let me feel your love one more time kiss me on the mouth and I'll die right in your arms again

Give me on more shot and I'll make it Push me through the dark to take it
Let me be everything I need to be
Let me feel your love one more time kiss me on the mouth and I'll lie right in your arms again
Track Name: Old & Gray
Even when I'm old and gray I'll still find my way back to you some day I Hope
I make it

Sitting waiting aimlessly Watching stars and counting sheep that's life

So sit back there watch and see
Faithfulness has always been fine to me
I'll sit back here with pen in hand writing the words down and turning the gears inside my head

Wrinkles deep and gray hair too nothing could ever stop me from loving you
You're stuck with me

Well spend ours I've creating scenes watching the stars move through the sky with me

So sit back there watch and see
Faithfulness has always been fine to me
I'll sit back here with pen in hand writing the words down and turning the gears inside my head
Track Name: You're it, You're everything
Sleep well on Sunday morning
Wake up and I find you calling
Everyday to see if you see me tonight

I see you every morning
see your eyes and watch them wake
Sleep next to me

I don't wanna see a better world then this
I don't wanna see a better world then this

Every single song I write to you will make your eyes tear up when I sing them
Make you cry in a way that won't eventually kill you

Stay here every morning I'll find the time to keep us going everyday

I don't wanna see a better world then this
