Track Name: This Letter
I won't be coming home anytime soon
These days, I just don't know what to do
Sleep all day and never wake up
You know I'll be gone soon
Every night, I can't sleep
Everyone's eyes on me

It's time to write me off
Why are you so blue?
Are you upset because I'm just like you?
Sleep all day and never wake up
You know I'll be gone soon
Every night, I can't sleep
Everyone's eyes on me

You're always on my mind every single day
Even with the hurtful things you said
Track Name: By My Name
In your eyes, I let you down
I've shown my face all over town
I disappoint you
I disappoint myself
I am living this hell
And I swear by my name
That I won't let you down
I woke up and things changed
But I won't let myself drown

Let's take some time to talk this through
I hate myself and so do you
I disappoint you
I disappoint myself
I am living this hell
And I swear by my name
That I won't let you down
I woke up and things changed
But I won't let myself drown

Things had.... I'll never be the same

When I was young, I saw the world in different colors
Now everything's so dull
My heart is heavy, my hate is full
It's like Edgar said "Nevermore"

NEVERMORE
Track Name: You Didn't Learn This In School
A few months with your hands around my neck
It's not something I will never forget
You don't build me up, you only tear me down
I guess I'll do everything for myself

I can't stress these words enough
I wrote this song for me not you
And fuck this song and fuck you all
You'll get what you want, you'll choke the life from me

You didn't learn this in work
You didn't learn this in school
Fuck everyone else it's the only way to keep your cool
And I know everything's sticking around
and there's so much hate in my heart
It's the only way to keep yourself sane

I can't stress these words enough
I wrote this song for me not you
And fuck this song and fuck you all
You'll get what you want, you'll choke the life from me

(Before long)
You'll choke the life from me
(Before long)

Too many words I lost my breath
These words I said I'll take them to my grave
You don't decide who I am

I can'y stress these words enough
I wrote this song for me not you
And fuck this song and fuck you all
You'll get what you want, you'll choke the life from me

(Before long)
You'll choke the life from me
(Before long)

You'll choke the life from me
Track Name: Forever Is Never
I couldn't tell if you wanted me or not
Your actions speak louder than your words
And I'm not sticking around just to get cut down again
And I know it's gonna hurt but I'm moving on
and I won't let myself be played the fool, the fool again

And even though I still love you, I'll do my best to forget you
The feeling now, more than ever, is that now?
Forever is never

And sometimes I can't move on
Excuse me. I'm out of line and I'm not complaining but...
I just can't hold it inside
Everything's so dull and I miss you
You must know...

And even though I still love you, I'll do my best to forget you
The feeling now, more than ever, is that now?
Forever is never

Lay me down, down to sleep

And even though I still love you, I'll do my best to forget you
The feeling now, more than ever, is that now?
Forever is never
