Track Name: Holcomb
I'm set in stone I watch the world flow past
Eroding away each piece of me til I'm reduced to sand
And though the space I fill is only temporary
I'd like to think I'm grounded, rooted, sedentary

and I'll never move

I'd rather sit here than suffer the cycle of constantly flowing wherever the tide goes
watching you all pass by cause I know that I am alone

But you chose to use the tide
and left me with what was mine
and though I'm no longer kind
out of sight but you're still mind
Track Name: Troubled
fresh start so far I'm looking out for me
chipped the paint off my walls to find color beneath
I've got you off my mind just long enough to see
that everything I've needed is right in front of me

so what do you do when thats gone?
cause I've failed to seek out what was wrong
did you adjust and move on?
say it was my fault all along?

I'm feeling troubled with no relief in sight
I hold it in but I release in rhyme
old arguments sound like reusing lines
to hide from the light

but fresh start this time I wont keep it inside
you always thought I tried to make big matters light
but then you up and run as if thats alright to hide from my spite
so now I try my best to spend every night
in any room that isnt mine
just to find a bed that feels better than yours
because you're happy now and its hard to ignore

I'm feeling troubled with no relief in sight
I hold it in but I release in rhyme
old arguments sound like reusing lines
to hide from the light

I built this wall of sound
in an attempt to drown you out
so that the tension between us fades
and I can finally find relief

I lie everytime you're mentioned or brought up by anyone who saw anything between us
and ask what went wrong and after so long how could i keep it all inside?

I'm feeling troubled with no relief in sight
I hold it in but I release in rhyme
old arguments sound like reusing lines
to hide from the light
Track Name: Best Excuse
hit me with the best excuse that you can provide
i'll believe it long enough to let the pain subside for a bit
its been so long but with all my wit
cant figure how to slip through such a tight grip
cause you hooked me in in one day
showed me all of your ways
soon as i learned the game you decided not to play
i guess i wanna see what you had seen in me
cause chasing after you has left me barking up trees

i hope you choke on every name you picked for yourself
and you disavow whats really you from everyone else
when your secrets start to drown you holfd your head still above
til you find peace of mind or lack there of

cause i was so down for you i thought you were too
cause everything that you said i held true
just cause its something to do
i still check up on you digging deep for things to hold onto

but i draw the line at reaching out id rather whisper low than shout out loud at you because i sorely doubt that i had you then and its much worse now

i draw the line at reaching out id rather whisper low than shout out loud
i'll bitch and moan until i'm replaced so you can hear all the words i never said to your face

i hope you choke on every name you picked for yourself
and you disavow whats really you from everyone else
when your secrets start to drown you holfd your head still above
til you find peace of mind or lack there of
Track Name: Three Times
almost fell asleep again
my head is filling up but not with information
but with the thought that i will never be called bright again
i wouldnt mind if i just never saw daylight again, again

too scared to look at what ive spent
i see the door but the key i haves a little bent
cant see the difference between where i am and where i went
im stuck in place while the year comes down on its own head, its head
but i cant help but want to drag this one out as long as i can

almost fell asleep again
my head is filling up but not with information
but with the thought that i will never be called bright again
i wouldnt mind if i just never saw daylight again, again

didnt sleep and it shows
i guess ill never care about the things i'll never know
and its a shame that all of my potential
would never get me an A i wanna go home, go home
cause im too tired to act like i didnt fall asleep three times in a row

three times in a row
