Track Name: Dear, Insecurities
1, 2, 3, GO

Dear father, how are you
Well I guess I'm doing fine
Now you're 6 feet under
Never were a father of mine
And I never met you, but I
Guess that's just great
Because if I had the chance to
You'd be down in that grave anyways

Chorus:
Here's a letter to all my insecurities
I wish you'd stay away
So I could die with peace and dignity

Hey there baby girl
Well, it's me, your superhero
Wish I could erase your presence
Or I wish that you'd just come home
You said you had to leave
So I screamed, what about trust
Now I'm stuck here in this hole
While you're up there, doing god knows what

Chorus (x2)
Track Name: The Letter
"I hate this"

To my best friend from out of town, you're still 2 hours away
And you're still a quiet clown, and I"ll never forget the day
I wish you the best, and boy I sure do wish you luck
Could you do me a solid favor, and learn to not give a fuck

To the sister I never had, and the one that I hold dear
My apologies to you if I never made it clear
You're headstrong, quick witted and so fucking smart
Just know that I'll always be right there, deep inside your heart

Chorus:
They tell me it'll be alright
That I'll get over this
He's not worth starting a fight
And she's nothing but a bitch
These are my final thoughts to you all
My wishes and requests
I'm sorry but I'm getting cold
And it's gonna have to end like this

To the brother who's stood by me for these past 6 years
Don't be overtaken by anger, come on man, let go of your tears
It'll tear you limb from limb and rip you apart
Don't let this be the end of you, in fact, let it be the start

To the woman who has left me oh so goddamn torn
I just can't go another day without you more
You had to find another just so you could leave
Please know in these last few moments
That you left with the very best of me

Chorus
Track Name: Quit Your Bitchin'
1, 2, 3
Let's hear ya scream
4, 5, 6
I don't want any more of your tricks
These days it seems to be
That all I'm living for is me

Chorus:
I'm a rebel, I'm a saint
I'm a lover filled with hate
A walking contradiction at every turn
I am prideful, I've got shame
Player One and I hate the game
And every day, the sun, it sets the same

I'm sorry I missed your last call
But I was too busy drinking
Guess I'll just have to miss the next 3
And I won't be reading the letters you've been writing
Despite all the effort
You've put into reaching me

Chorus
Track Name: So I've Been Told
I'm alive (x3)
I'm alone (x2)
I'm alive (x3)
I'm alone

Closed eyes, closed minds
These streets still paved with gold
Stead fast, walk blind
Unkind to this world we know

Chorus:
I'm alive so I've been told
Your lights are out, so you must be home
I'm alive so I've been told
Your lights are out, so you must be home

I'm lost, I'm found
Severe each way out
Laid brick by brick
But these walls won't stand
And every doubt that you have, is everything I am
Every doubt that you have, is everything

Chorus

So we walked in your shoes
With worn out soles
Filled our cups of faith that
Are filled with holes

And we saw this world for what it truly is
Saw despair for what it truly is
Saw sorrow for what it truly is
Yeah, we saw this world for what it truly is

And not one faith's gonna stop the rain
When the storm is gone we'll sing praise again
(repeat x6)
Track Name: Hey, Ho, Wind and The Rain
When that I was but a tiny boy
With a hey, ho, wind and the rain
A foolish thing, was but a toy
But the rain it raineth every day

When I came to man's estate
With a hey, ho, the wind and the rain
'Gainst knaves and thieves men shut their gates
For the rain it raineth every day

When I came alas to wive
With a hey, ho, the wind and the rain
By swaggering, I could never thrive
For the rain it raineth every day

But when I came, unto my beds
With a hey, ho, the wind and the rain
With tosspots, still had drunken heads
And the rain it raineth every day

A great while ago, the world begun
With a hey, ho, the wind and the rain
That's all one, our play here is done
And we'll strive to please you every day

Hey, ho, the wind and the rain
The wind and the rain (x4)
Track Name: On Life, Loneliness, And Giving Up
My gut still wrenches at the very news you see
But who is it I kill now if the messenger is me?
Well it's masochist behavior and I think it needs to end
Only problem is I'm not functioning too well without you my friend

So I'll just try to numb my pain with a drink or 17
Try to forget about abandonment and what I used to scream
From the rooftops so high out in the middle of the night
That I was yours forever and for once, I felt alright

So I'll just dream of younger times, when there were better days
Where we'd dance this night away with empathy in our veins
Now reality is hitting, so much harder than a train
Seems like I can't shake the voices deep inside my brain

Cause I'm sick of feeling lonely, sick of always feeling down
Sick of feeling so inadequate, can't turn it all around
So sick of always talking, hell, I'll never take that step
But I'll take the leap today so I can take my very last breath

Don't know if I can take it, hell, already tried once
Feel like trying again just to shut these thoughts up
Maybe I should pull this trigger and lay here in my blood
'Cause the voices keep telling me "Boy, your pain's just begun"

So please come won't you take me away
Lie to me once again and say I'll be okay
The more time that passes I'll have to admit
The more that I think, I can't take it

So please come won't you take me away
Lie to me once again and say I'll be okay
The more time that passes I'll just have to admit
The more that I think, I can't do this
