Track Name: Monster
I've nothing to offer but anguish and torture,
but you keep running back here
Falling to your knees, you ask the question :
"Why can't you just let this happen?"
And no matter how hard I try,
These are the hardest words to find -

Don't stay with me,
I'll wreck you from the inside out
Don't stay with me,
I'm a monster, and I'm gonna tear you down.

I've tried resisting but each kiss on my skin
Clouds my better judgement.
But the more that you assault my senses,
The more I'm aware of my weakness.
And I know now that the kindest way
Is to face my demons and say -

Don't stay with me,
I'll wreck you from the inside out
Don't stay with me,
I'm a monster, and I'm gonna tear you down.
Track Name: Charlatan
(do it)

I've grown to hate the way you breathe
When you're sleeping next to me
As far away as you can be
Why don't you turn and face me?

We've had months wasting our time
While you had legions on the side
If you didn't want me
Why don't you just fucking tell me?

Don't you owe me that at least?

You had the nerve to toss me out
Fucked my best friend in our own house
Were you always so callous?
Or are you just fucking bat-shit?

I deserve better than this

I deserve better than this
I deserve better than this

Woo!
Track Name: Sing
In our unusual way
The word was for us only
The kings and queens for just a day...

And when the sunset came
And warmed us with it's embrace
With every you,
With every me,
With everyone we would sing

La, la la la, la la la,

And in the morning rays
We travel home with memories
Of every smile,
Of every drink,
With all our love we would sing

La, la la la la...

But it's not enough
We're all alone
If just one song could guide us home
So let's just sing, can we just sing?
Maybe we'll change everything

La, la la la ...

But it's not enough
We're all alone
If just one song could guide us home
So let's just sing, can we just sing?
Maybe we'll change everything x 2

La...
Track Name: Jack & Coke
Everyone has said that it gets better as you get older
But now I'm 25 and still looking past my shoulder, this world gets colder

But that my friends is what beer is for!
So lock the doors, blast the tunes and I'll pour!

Here is to each darkened room
each 4am, each sleep 'til noon!
I tip my hat, here's to you!
Here is to each loyal friend
each jack & coke until the end
I've got your back, here's to you!
I raise my glass to you!

Everything is shit! and maybe we are stuck, so come on, fill your cup!
'Cuz we won't get out alive and the sun is coming up, so come on let's get fucked!

So my friends let's have a drink or four!
Lock the doors, blast the tunes and I'll pour!

Here is to each darkened room
each 4am, each sleep 'til noon!
I tip my hat, here's to you!
Here is to each loyal friend
each jack & coke until the end
I've got your back, here's to you!
I raise my glass to you!

Here is to each darkened room
each 4am, each sleep 'til noon!
I tip my hat, here's to you!
Here is to each loyal friend
each jack & coke until the end
I've got your back, here's to you!
I raise my glass to you!

Matt - "Fucksake!")
Track Name: One More Step
And as the sweat falls free from my head
Mixing with the blood splashed back by the dead
I think to myself that it's not worth it in the end
Just one more step, and away I'm lead

And as the wind whips against my skin
Mixing with the dust that settling in
I think to myself "I'm never gonna win"
Just one more step, maybe I can give in?

The hordes can come closer,
The world can get colder,
But my time on earth is far from over.

And as the light gets chased down by the night
I do my best to hide from the outside
I think to myself "It's never gonna be alright!"
Just one more step, maybe I can get by

The hordes can come closer,
The world can get colder,
But my time on earth is far from over. x 3
