Track Name: Resolutions
It's been quite a year.
I've lost some good friends,
but I've made stronger bonds
with the ones that I'm keeping.

I know I should be glad you're gone
and I'll try to move on,
but I'll always remember
You always enjoyed watching me fail.

The seasons will turn.
We live and we learn,
but I'll always remember
You always enjoyed watching me fail.

And I know that I'm such a fuck up but

day go
minds change
I'll try to rearrange myself,
but not for you.
not for you!
Track Name: Dad's House
I'm not grown enough
to leave my father's house.
This world is cold and tough
all by yourself.

Middle of nowhere and no one to turn to,
I'm getting tired of learning about growing up.

Waking up in this small town is getting harder every day.
I'd rather not make the drive.
I'd rather not wake up anymore.

Why did I ever come back home?

I know I shouldn't be alone, but I am running out of hope.
Track Name: Berkeley
It was nice to see you back in town
But I hope I never see you again
Last time was just too embarrassing

Berkley is just too far away for someone like me
To drop everything and leave
Track Name: Kingsley
I stubbornly remained me
rather then who you wanted me to be.
I shamefully remained me
rather then who you wanted me to be.
Now you got him sleeping in my bed,
whatever.

And you kept all those goddamn cats
in that goddamn house
and I thought I needed you
but I'm learning to live without.

They'll never be you
and I don't want them to.

When you change your mind
I'll already be gone.
Track Name: Jet Black Every Year
Closing doors,
turning friends into acquaintances.
and regretting every fucking thing
as I thumb through these old photos.

I was hanging on even though I didn't know it.
You were giving up.
I never claimed to be astute.

So I'll just burn out
'cause I'm so used up.
I never thought we could be so distant,
but we are.

It's easier to just go back to thinking
the cold world has shunned me.
So I'll stay shut in my room
warmed by the space heater.
Listening to Thursday again.
Track Name: Grown
I'm trying to do the best that I can.
I'm trying to be the man I should be.

I'm trying to do the best that I can.
I'm trying to be the man I should be.

Something's got a hold on me.
Something just won't let me go
I'm just trying hard to be me.
