Track Name: headcharmer.
The stars have all died at once
but this light still shines bright amonst them
what's the point in all of this? all this fucking shit
all our lives are lived in vain
this is our great escape, it feels like a fucking mistake

We've thrown out our father's gods
but you just traded yours in for another
all the hate that you've kept will surely die with her
all beliefs will go as flesh
this is your great escape, looks like a fucking mistake

we are not the same
but we'll all die anyway
Track Name: so, you're drowning...
Who are we living our lives for?
Same question every six months or so.
When nothing you ever do ever seems to last (will it ever last?x2)
Sure it's not your fault, but what does that matter? (it sure won't change a goddamn thing)
you can't have control over everything in life (that's the beauty here, you just can't see it now)
just remember why you left, and why you said you'd never leave (our reasons are more than just words)

So you're drowning in the ocean
We all get lost sometimes at sea
don't worry about how, we're gonna make it out
just be happy we're floating free

if you learn one thing in life it's that something always goes wrong (they say life's a journey, they aren't fucking kidding)
that's why we medicate, while some others pray (what the hell we say, whatever works)
just don't let yourself be fooled, it's not better that way (no matter what they say, just find your own way)
we just decided to be ourselves and swore that's all we'd ever be (this is all, we'll ever be!)

So you're drowning in the ocean
We all get lost sometimes at sea
don't worry about how, we're gonna make it out
just be happy we're floating free
Track Name: bastard's song
Sometimes the only faith I find lies in a bastard's words
shouted through shredded vocal cords
torn by whiskey, gravel, and smoke
but at least tonight, I know i'm not alone.

I never really listened to the words my father said
"go to work, go to church, you'll end up ahead."
I never really understood what they were trying to save me from
I knew I was lost the first time I heard that sound.

Sometimes the only faith I find lies in a bastard's words
shouted through shredded vocal cords
torn by whiskey, gravel, and smoke
but at least tonight, I know i'm not alone.

We spent so many nights entertained with ghost stories
Pretended witnesses to something we all hoped to see
But from the bottom of my heart I hope that you'll recognize
this song could have been written without you around.

Sometimes the only faith I find lies in a bastard's words
shouted through shredded vocal cords
torn by whiskey, gravel, and smoke
but at least tonight, I know i'm not alone.

No I'm not alone, this rambling road could one day become our home
If we could find the strength inside to simply let this bullshit go.
Track Name: we don't believe (the american dream)
How is it that you let us be born in this?
You've got us working jobs we hate for shit we don't need.

A rush to the finish so we can start again
but before we know, we're all covered in dirt

We don't believe because nothing that we've ever seen has made us feel safe.

the cracks are breaking to let more people through
it's about time that we wonder out loud

that we never had a chance
to make something of ourselves
in this world that you left for us that we didn't want
and you, you knew it all along.
So we don't believe because nothing that we've ever seen has made us feel safe.
Track Name: they left a note
i've been keeping secrets
of where i go at night
after you've gone to sleep
tucked away in your dreams
i leave this place for somewhere dark
a place i'm scared for you to see
but i'm not getting any better
so i decided to come clean

we lay in bed all night
with tears streaming down my eyes
thinking about the day
that one of us will die
i'm happy we said forever
but forever isn't long enough
and as hard as i fucking try
these thoughts won't leave my head

then the morning comes
my mind fills with an ancient comfort
we can actually laugh about it
"how crazy they must have been"
but we go our separate ways
a goodbye sealed with a kiss
a promise we'll both be missed
and hopefully we'll return

we lay in bed all night
with tears streaming down my eyes
thinking about the day
that one of us will die
i'm happy we said forever
but forever isn't long enough
if there's no heaven then there's no hell
but what does that mean for us?

what makes a couple decide tonight's the night?
they left a note "please don't tell the kids"
that their last loving memory is sitting in the car
turning up the radio and listening to their song


we lay in bed all night
with tears streaming down my eyes
thinking about the day
that one of us will die
i'm happy we said forever
but forever isn't long enough
and if you should happen to go first
i'll pray there's a god to help me
please god, help me
