Track Name: Shoot Straight (For the Head)
I wanna hate you, more than any other
You fucked me over and now I'm just another late night good time
But I'm not your standby
You're not worthy of my time

And if you didn't want to hurt me
Then you shouldn't have lured me into situations you'd come to regret
Now I just lay in bed and try to forget

You don't deserve what I have to offer
So choke on your words and I'll watch as you suffer
It's so hard to get up when you're pulling me under
So just shoot straight, and I'll run for cover

I wanna hate myself for letting you under the sheets of my bed, where my mind used to wander
Thinking about a happy ever after
Too good to be true, you were a perfect disaster

You don't deserve what I have to offer
So choke on your words and I'll watch as you suffer
It's so hard to get up when you're pulling me under
So just shoot straight, and I'll run for

Covering all your tracks and the bridges you burned
And I just hope someday, you'll get what you deserve
And I know I swore that I'd have no regrets
But one thing's for sure, I liked myself better before we met

You don't deserve what I have to offer
So choke on your words and I'll watch as you suffer
It's so hard to get up when you're pulling me under
So just shoot straight, and I'll run for cover (x2)
Track Name: Prosper
I’ve worn the past two years like battle scars
As we’ve slowly decayed and drifted apart
Your skin has grown so cold to my touch
You act like time alone can heal us
But tell me how we can work this out
If we can’t save ourselves

Maybe it’s too late
Maybe too much has changed
But if it’s a lost cause
Then I’ll find my own way
Out of this grave that I’ve been digging
For my bones, as they’re crippling
I give and you take, it’s always the same
If it’s true what they say, we’ll always be broken
We’ll always be broken

I know you want to pretend it’s our first summer again
But time has taken its toll, and we’re not who we were then
Losing all signs of hope, I can feel as we falter
But i know, that we must grow to prosper on our own

Maybe it’s too late
Maybe too much has changed
But if it’s a lost cause
Then I’ll find my own way
Out of this grave that I’ve been digging
For my bones, as they’re crippling
I give and you take, it’s always the same
If it’s true what they say, we’ll always be broken
We’ll always be broken

We’re bad news, a poor excuse
I mean, honestly, what are we trying to prove?
We’re bad news with a pretty good ruse
But I’m sick of playing games that we’re bound to lose (x2)

Maybe it’s too late
Maybe too much has changed
But if it’s a lost cause
Then I’ll find my own way
Out of this grave that I’ve been digging
For my bones, as they’re crippling
I give and you take, it’s always the same
If it’s true what they say, we’ll always be broken
Track Name: Return to Sender
I'm sorry for this lack of stability
I've fucked up every chance that you've given
Maybe you're better on your own, and I should leave you alone
You said I didn't have to hold on
But I was scared of letting go

So prepare yourself for a letter back
'Cause I'm writing to tell you that the blame was mine to have
And you don't have to forgive me, or pretend that you're not mad
But just know, someday, I'm gonna get you back
I'm gonna get you back

I know I've never been a priority
And that was hard on my obsessive personality
But now that's all in the past, I've taught myself to relax
I don't think about the good times, 'cause we've yet to have our best

So prepare yourself for a letter back
'Cause I'm writing to tell you that the blame was mine to have
And you don't have to forgive me, or pretend that you're not mad
But just know, someday, I'm gonna get you back
I'm gonna get you back

You could cut me with a single word
And I've been throwing knives, but they don't seem to hurt
And I'd do things different if we could go back
So just hear me out, 'cause it's all I have
Track Name: Sidelines
Some things just can't be replaced, and you're not even worth the chase
So what am I still running towards?

I'll no longer fight, just to stay in your life
'Cause If I'm not worth your time, then you're not worth mine
You knew just how I felt, yet the words that you dealt were anything but honest
I refuse to be an option

I don't know why I latch onto people who just want to see me fall off
All I know is that I'm so damn tired of feeling like an afterthought

Some things just can't be replaced, and you're not even worth the chase
So what am I still running towards?
Some things I just can't forget, like the lies you told just to save your skin
So what am I still fighting for?

Did you really think that I'd be down?
To take the backseat and shut my mouth while you chased another boy across town?
It's obvious you don't know me too well

You thought it'd be a pretty quick fix
To switch us out when he caved in
But I bet you didn't count on hearing this
Well I'm so done (I'm so done)
Yeah, I'm so done being your bitch

Some things just can't be replaced, and you're not even worth the chase
So what am I still running towards?
Some things I just can't forget, like the lies you told just to save your skin
So what am I still fighting for? (x2)
Track Name: Where I Went Wrong
Don't say you're sorry, when I know you'll do it again
It's only been a couple weeks and already I'm in over my head
And I'm in desperate need of someone I can lean on
But you only support yourself
There's no room for anyone else

Keep crying wolf and I won't be there when you need me
Keep making things hard and forgetting will be easy
Keep leaving everyone and you'll end up all alone
Keep burning bridges and you'll have no way to get home

You fool me once, and that's on me
You fool me twice, and it's time to leave
How could I be so unaware, thinking that you would ever care?
I'm starting to see just who you are, manipulative with intent to harm
Convinced me to let down my guard
And trusting you is where I went wrong
Yeah, trusting you is where I went

Keep crying wolf and I won't be there when you need me
Keep making things hard and forgetting will be easy
Keep leaving everyone and you'll end up all alone
Keep burning bridges and you'll have no way to get home

When you wake up in the morning
You won't think about me, unless I think about you first
When you wake up in the morning
I'll be the one questioning my self worth
