Ball and Chain

 This is my second life, it's such a waste of time
Addiction in my mind will leave me stuck inside
I've used up all my time which makes it hard to find
The only thing that keeps me sane

I can't break away from this ball and chain
It might take a shotgun to kill the pain

The air I breathe is fake, my enemies are fake
But every step I take seems real
My vision fades to red, I'm taking my last breath
Another chance to fight again

I can't break away from this ball and chain
It might take a shotgun to kill the pain

My obsession has disconnected me
And now I'm feeling resistance killing me

I can't break away from this ball and chain
It might take a shotgun to kill the pain
I can't break away from this ball and chain

Zombified

verse:
time to change has taken hold, you know its out of our control, i feel it taunting me
emptiness now takes its toll, its buried deep within my soul, it tries to rescue me

chorus:
i design my fate tonight and how im gonna die, you gotta tell me what its like to be alive but ZOMBIFIED
my senses realign, im never gonna die, cuz now im knowin what its like to be alive but zombified

verse:
this half life wont let me go, i try to keep it in control, cant fight this red letter day

Suffocate

verse:
i try to do the best I can.
still everything just turns out wrong.
i cant do this til the end.
i wont do this, i cant do this.

chorus:
when it all comes down, and youre drownin in yourself,
think of how it could've been if you left me alone
cuz I cant find a way to be myself
while all the time you suffocate me

verse:
all the things that I want.
never things that I need.
i can't do this til the end.
i won't do this, i can't do this

Time and Money

verse:
Life always seems to have its ways
a balancing act for better or worse
when my time arrives I'm sure I'll know
but until that day comes I'll just have to play
stick it out, play this game of life

chorus:
I spend my time
like I spend my money
I don't need much
cuz I don't do much
cuz I don't have much of either

verse:
I jumped straight in, it took me by surprise
it hit me real hard, then knocked me down
never thought I could be someone I hated
my vision's faded, this I've created
oh my God, this is not my life
 
bridge:
Most of life's best times come in disguise
waiting takes forever I'll just leave all that behind
 

Live for Today

verse:
looking back at the time i spent alone, untying all the knots of the past year
i'll say goodbye, but not forgotten. another chapter laid to rest

chorus:
the older we get the shorter it seems, i have no regrets still chasing my dreams. still im never really sure of where they're going, thats why i live for today
only for today

verse:
looking forward to what has yet to come.
recognizing opportunities to change my fate. and I believe that, we're given a chance to do that. trying not to get distracted with irrelevance,

chorus:
the older we get the harder it seems to slow it all down and never miss anything, still im never really sure of where im going. thats why i live for today. only for today

chorus:
the older we get the shorter it seems, i have no regrets still chasing my dreams. i'll never give up, its way too much fun, im not gonna stop, until im done. still i'll never be sure of where im going. thats why i live for today. only for today

Epic Failure

verse:
dissapointment of epic failure so hard to translate the sounds from inside my head

chorus:
how can I kill all the voices that are haunting me, when im always fighting the choices that I have to make

verse:
so far waiting is never ending, the eyes have proven the unexpected, i cant remember the sounds from inside my head

bridge:
give me room the breath.
give me room to break!

outro:
give me room to breath

Get You Nowhere

verse:
you think that all the lies you tell are gonna save you
some people never learn
trying so hard for personal gain will only fail you
some people never learn

chorus:
now you're runnin your mouth again, and you look like a fool again, it's gonna get you nowhere.
have you listened to what I said, cuz you're runnin your mouth again, it's gonna get you nowhere

verse:
just another day creating complications, your negative influence is making your decisions

Until I'm Done

verse:
rollin down the road again, to a place that Ive never been. who'd have thought that this would happen wearing faded jeans and cheap sunglasses
still a hundred miles away, can't remember what i did today, adrenaline is running through my veins as i think of this over and over again

pre chorus:
until im done, until im done

chorus:
hittin it hard, takin it fast, tryin to make this moment last. now im back for more, going down again. it feels so good its too much fun, and im not gonna stop until i'm done

verse:
now you're wishing you were here with me, and the videos youre sending me, make it hard to concentrate, it's time to take another shot of liquid cocaine. the party's gettin ready to start, you sit at home with a broken heart, this alcohol is running through my veins as I think of you over and over again

Empty Bottle

verse:
The day grows long the hour's cold
you're taken away, but not that old
can't understand the reason why
we were forced to say goodbye

Goodbye

chorus:
Now I can't believe it, yet I could foresee it
an empty bottle and a wasted life
now that I've seen it, I still can't believe it
the pain it stabs me like a rusted knife

verse:
I often sit alone a night
and question myself how to do this right
I feel you watching down on me
give me a sign to make me see

bridge:
I can't believe that I would be the one to ask
how could you leave in such a careless way
all of the things I never got to say
will die along with me eventually one day
...and waste away

Wasted life and an empty bottle
wasted life and an empty bottle

No Complaints

verse:
I've been walking down this desert road
for what seems to be a lifetime
the Autumn sun just fell behind a silhouette of mountains
and all I'm left with now is a cold dark night to find my way back home
I feel the odds against me but I still maintain control

Even though I'm lost I still know where I'm going

chorus:
No you'll never ever hear me complain
its not the kind of man that I am
people tend to drive me insane
no you'll never ever hear me complain

verse:
I wake up early every day
and it's a beautiful day today
until I step outside and begin to feel the heat rise up off the pavement
the wind is blowing hot and dry and I'm down to my last drop of water
the sun is blazing down upon my skin as it begins to burn

Even though the summer's hot in Arizona

bridge:
The only time that I felt like I was half a man
it didn't take me long to realize the damage I could do
and now I've got to make the best of the time that I'm given

chorus:
you'll never ever hear me complain
its not the kind of man that I am
people tend to drive me insane
no you'll never ever hear me complain
Its not the kind of man that I am
Do my best to keep from going insane
no you'll never ever hear me complain
