1. THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD

How could this happen?
Am I dreaming again?
Her body’s not moving, I’m assuming she’s dead.

This isn’t a fucking game.
There’s somebody’s life at stake.
She’s covered in bruises,
but the truth is that I never committed the crime
'cause I know I could never hurt a fly.
Then how’d she lose her life?
You're in denial.
What you've implied has burned and stripped
the whites of my eyes.
But what went on that night?

“Listen closely as I tell you I’m not who I seem.
I’m gonna touch you 'cause I like it when you scream.
I want to watch you when you’re sleeping and thinking of me.”
And that’s what he told her when he killed her.
That son of a bitch took away my girl.
He’s gonna pay for it right now.

'Cause you might think you're in love,
and he might promise you the world.
Don't believe what he says.
He's not real.
It's murder and this is it.

My God, you better fear me 'cause I'm gonna find you.
'Cause I'll be out in six months
with his address and a shotgun
and a promise for justice that night.
And I’ll be standing at the crime
so they can throw me back in prison for my life.
If that could bring you back to me.

Last night I dreamed we had a future and you were alive.
It was springtime on our wedding day;
there were birds in the sky.
The sun was glowing; it was beautiful and everyone was there.
I still can’t believe that you're gone.
I’m so lost.
I’m sorry, I'm sorry.
Don’t go. Oh please God, no.

'Cause you might think you're in love,
and he might promise you the world.
Don't believe what he says.
He's not real.
He's just a murderer.

I think that I've had enough.
He says, “You're too late.
I’ve got a hole to dig and you think that I’ve over-reacted?
She was just so cute.
I can't resist 'cause I’m a sucker for promiscuous action."
So tell me. Just tell me.
Tell me the truth.

'Cause you might think you're in love,
and he might promise you the world.
Don't believe what he says.
He's not real. He's a murderer.

'Cause I've been lying awake
from this nightmare I feel betrayed.
I gave my life, but you took it away.

Am I dead? Or am I still breathing?

'Cause you’ve stolen the love of my life,
so you’ll be sleeping with the fishes tonight.

Now listen -
I’m not religious, but I’ve learned to pray for her.
I’m not a violent man, but people can change.
So while you’re sleeping,
I’ll slit your throat and drain your blood
and mail it to your mother.
She’ll discover what a mess you become.
I think she might like that, 'cause I fucking do.

'Cause you might think you're in love,
and he might promise you the world.
Don't believe what he says.
He's not real. He's a murderer.

'Cause I've been lying awake
from this nightmare I feel betrayed.
I gave my life, but you took it away.

There's not a day that goes by...




2. IN THE THROWS OF A MORAL QUANDARY

Well I'm taking time to realize
I'm making myself sick
With every pill that fills me inside
It makes it hard for me to quit
It's not like I want to be a slave to something
But somethings got me and I can't stop
Burning out
I'm a lost cause
And I might not be here tomorrow

So call the cops
And tell them to lock me away
I'm sick of dying in vain
And there I can't hurt myself anymore
But I don't feel guilty cause we all make mistakes
And I'll just learn on the way
And maybe tomorrow
I'm giving it all up
But tonight I'm begging you for more

Cause all I wanted was a future
That I could call my own
But it isn't easy not to need this
And just let it go
You gotta believe me
I can't stop
Burning out
I'm a lost cause
I might not be here tomorrow

So call the cops (It's too late)
And tell them to lock me away
I'm sick of dying in vain
And there I can't hurt myself anymore
But I don't feel guilty cause we all make mistakes
And I'll just learn on the way
And maybe tomorrow
I'm giving it all up
But tonight I'm begging you for more

Right now I couldn't care less if this shit fucking kills me
Don't save me; Drown me
God is dead I'm buried by his side
Oh come on
This ain't temporary now

So I take a moment
And I let these pills sink in
Now I know I shouldn't be happy
But these chemicals let me pretend
Cause I've tried so hard
To give it up
But I give in to demons
Just give me a reason to stop
Cause I want more
Cause destiny has forgot me

So call the cops
And tell them to lock me away
And if I die
Then hide my body
But tell everyone I'm fine
I'll be so perfect that we can't make mistakes
I want to learn on the way
But I need therapy

So come on
Give me that chemical contact
Oh yea you make me feel so good
I got an itch you can scratch
So just kill me now
And End This War
End this war




3. DEAD IS THE NEW BLACK

Brace yourself cause we’re all going down.
Watch us run out this race as we burn this place to the ground.
So tell me, is this what you expected?
Cause we’re so screwed.
But we're far from protected.
Or so they promised you.
I’ll say it slow to get it through;
We’re wasting our days as we try to get a grip on our lives.
But they’re slipping away.
And we’re all going to die here.
Unless we can learn to behave.

Cause we try so hard just to live, but just let go.
And watch it all come crumbling down.
Well it hurts to know you're still around.
Yeah it’s sad but true.
We’re all miserable thinking of you.

So we try to be honest.
But it’s all lies, it's all lies.
And we think nothing can harm us.
But we’re all just sheep.
And the wolf’s at the window as you’re slowly falling asleep.
We try to believe.
That this is what we need.
But we’re all dieing slowly.

Cause we try so hard to live, but just let go.
And watch it all come crumbling down.
Well it hurts knowing you're still around.
Yea it’s sad but true.
We’re all miserable thinking of you.

Cause you knocked down the walls.

The next time you fuck with me.
Pain will be brought on endlessly.
And I’ll make sure you burn.

Cause you knocked down the walls.

Cause we try so hard to live!

You can lock all your doors but it’s not going to save you tonight!

Cause we try so hard to live, but just let go.
And watch it all come crumbling down.
Well it hurts knowing you're still around.
Yea it’s sad but true.
We’re all miserable thinking of you.




4. YOU SCRATCHED MY ANCHOR

Don't attempt to take the pain away
Let it go
You're dead to me now
I've learned enough to know that what
You do makes who you are
So here's a lesson in deception
Don't act like you don't know
How to build your own disaster
Out of something beautiful
She says I'm not a liar
Yeah if only that were true
You're like an angel when you sleep
But the devil's breaking through
I'd burn alive if that meant you would too
So stop fucking with me and fucking let me breath
Cause I can tell where you've been sleeping
And Don't act like you're impressed
You've got despicable bad habits
Of taking off your dress
She says I'm not a liar? Yeah if only that were true
You're like an angel when you sleep
But the devil's breaking through

So tell me baby, I'm waiting
But you never would confess
Would it make it easier with rope around your neck
So take a breath
(She says she's not a liar)? Cause I've got all the time it takes
(She's wrong cause I can see inside her)
I wish you could say the same

You're like an angel when you sleep
So go to sleep for good
So tell me if I'm too rough
Close your eyes it's not gonna hurt
Much
For every night that you led me on
Here's another bruise to remind you of
The pain I felt from you
So what's it gonna be
You've got three seconds to speak
Three.. Two.. One




5. BUILD YOUR OWN DISASTER

This isn’t easy
Easy to notice
That we’re stalling
And I’m getting on your nerves
This isn’t last year
When we were both happy
That we’ll get what we deserve
(This is moving a mountain)
But it’s trying our best
(It's me losing control)
As you’re getting undressed
This is a wake up call
Wake up to all that we’ve ever loved...
And give it up

Don’t turn away
This time could be different
You’re making this difficult
Just thought I let you know
That when you leave
I’ll be starting a new life on my own

'Cause it’s a constant tragedy
Connecting you and I
And I laugh when I hear you say:
"I want to feel alive
I want to be with you one more night
Just you and I
And the city lights
We’ll do it one more time
Except this time we’ll get it right"

I’ve got my subtleties
That distinguish me from all the liars
'Cause I always satisfy her
When she says she says:
"Give me my fix, just gimmie my fix"
You want me to
Now we’re a one way street
And I’m just gravity
They can’t stop tearing down our dreams
(To every moment that I’m burning alive)
I used to think you cared
But tonight I realize...

'Cause it’s a constant tragedy
Connecting you and I
And I laugh when I hear you say:
"I want to feel alive
I want to be with you one more night
Just you and I
And the city lights
We’ll do it one more time
Except this time we’ll get it right"

(Get it right, get it right, let me go...)

I don’t think I need you now
Cause I don’t want you
I don’t want to see you

(I'm gonna haunt your dreams
like a fucking nightmare,
I’m watching you)

I bet, bet we forget
Forget everything this year
I’m making sure we don’t speak a word
Cuz lately you’re finding brand new ways to hate me
I bet, bet we forget
Forget everyone this time
Things can’t be undone
You cover up so easy
But, twenty bucks says you’re guilty now

(You're guilty, you're guilty now)

So I give up
and I give in
And if I’m lucky you’ll fade away
(Just fade away)
Well won't you fade away?

'Cause it’s a constant tragedy
Connecting you and I
(Just fade away)
And I laugh when I hear you say:
"I want to feel alive
I want to be with you one more night
Just you and I
And the city lights
We’ll do it one more time
Except this time we’ll get it right"




6. WHAT I SHOULD HAVE LEARNED IN STUDY HALL

Well I waited till you packed your bags,
Took a picture and hoped it would last,
With you all the way through,
All the nights you and I couldn’t have.
Now I know that it shouldn’t be this hard,
But you’ve moved yourself so damn far.
And I won’t suffice,
When there’s two thousand miles to drive.
I’m thinking it over,
I’m thinking of all the days and nights
We would spend laughing.
Are you happy...

In Colorado, with the mountains,
Did you like them?
Did you find what you’re looking for?
Because I’m still searching for the life we were living before...

You seem so young and so full of life,
While I’m getting older with each hopeless night.
You’re still always on my mind,
Are we through this time?
Well angels should ask you,
What you’re doing with me.
I’m an apple who slipped too far from the tree.
But I’m learning to rot away silently,
As you grow into something more promising.
And now we’ve got these god damn words,
That mean nothing when I can’t see your face,
Or have your body for touching.
And everything I eat,
It tastes like you,
So what are you trying to prove,

In Colorado, with the mountains,
Did you like them?
Did you find what you’re looking for?
Because I’m still searching for the life we were living before.
And if I dropped everything and booked a flight,
From Logan to Denver, that my plane would crash that night,
'Cause the odds are against us,
So all bets are off,
Just know you meant more than I ever could want.

I’m giving up . . .
(Just give me one more time...)
If just for one more night,
Then I’ll be happy to walk away.
You could put on that dress you know I love,
Taking your time zipping it up,
You always knew what I liked.
They'd base movies off our lust, but somehow they wouldn't suffice.

(So just take your time)
You’ve got moves and abuse them,
(Live your life)
And I’ve got pictures to prove them,
(You're not that far away,
I'm sick of every word I wish you'd say)
I'm sure You’re burning every note I ever sent,
So I’ll find you,

In Colorado, with the mountains,
Did you like them?
Did you find what you’re looking for?
Because I’m still searching for the life we were living before.
And if I dropped everything and booked a flight,
From Logan to Denver, that my plane would crash that night,
Cause the odds are against us,
So all bets are off,
Just know you meant more than I ever could want.




7. LAST WORDS (EP Version)

Here goes the story of a kid we thought we knew. (we thought we knew)
He hid a hate inside, and had a state of mind that put him in his grave!

It began with his friends.
They never noticed the despair in his eyes.
From the pressure.
He thought his life was etched in stone.
Before he made a choice of his own.

And he's dedicated for everyday that he made it on his own!
In his father's eyes he's a pair of dice.
He won't be number one.
(won't be number one)
He won't be number one.

So he tries to comply with everything they've ever asked.
And his life is stitched with one way tickets, to places he don't wanna visit.
He says "I'm never gonna be perfect.
Maybe I don't deserve this but,
I'm doing the best I can.
I've never dealt with the pressure.
Feels like my whole life's etched in stone.
Before I made a choice of my own!"

And he's dedicated for everyday that he made it on his own!
In his father's eyes he's a pair of dice.
He won't be number one.
(won't be number one)

SO!
Save your breath, cause you'll need it when you hang from the rope.
Cause of death: Obvious from your suicide note.
The last words, that filled the page:
"If no one will listen, then no one will miss when I'm gone."

Across town, his dad wakes up all alone.
Never knowing he was never going to come home.
The last thought that filled his head.
"I'll tell him I'm sorry, I'll say I regret what I said.
It's your life. I'll live my own life instead."

And he's dedicated for everyday that he made it on his own!
In his father's eyes he's a pair of dice.
He won't be number one.
He's never won!

He won't be number one.

His bedroom's filled with emptiness tonight.
As the silence cuts through, like a knife.
Knowing he's not there.

He was dedicated for everyday that he made it on his own.
In his father's eyes he's a pair of dice!
He won't be number one!

"I'm never gonna be perfect, maybe I don't deserve it."

He won't be number one.

Oh, and the story goes on and on and no one seems to care.
We will let him know we care. (We care!)
