Track Name: ME, MYSELF, AND EVERYBODY ELSE
i'm not smarter i'm just older
i'm still fucking myself over
like i did when i was younger
but i get in way more trouble

i get bored and i watch tv
i watch porn and i feel sleezy
seems like i'm always chasing
or just running from a feeling

i tried my fucking best
that's what i have to tell myself
so that i can get to sleep
my past eats away at

me, myself,
and everybody else
i never found it in me
to tell you how i felt

about all of the late nights
most of the long drives
we got in those dumb fights
we were always being dumb guys

here's to having fun
here's to the way shit was
before we ever got drunk
before we ever did those drugs

pictures of lost friends
saved text messages
will bring us back
to a place we never
should have left

and i know it's a little late but
i'm feeling the weight of
the things i wanted as a kid
and the things i did to get them

and i know it's a little late but
i'm more than a little bit drunk
and i need to be reminded of the last time i had fun

weight of the world
my head hangs low
i've watched people that i love
turn into people i don't know

we all go to bed
every single night
a little less alive
a little more dead inside

weight of the world
my head hangs low
i've watched people that i love
turn into people i don't know

we all go to bed
every single night
a little less alive
a little more dead inside
Track Name: WHO I AM IS NOT MY PAST
sell all of my shit
break the shackles from my wrists
forget the things i did
i'll live the life i want to live

be who i want to be
quit the job i fucking hate
living day to day
i'm ganna throw my life away

wake up everyday
redefine the role i play
never tied down
i'm free to go i'm free to stay

use to be so good
but today i'm feeling bad
free to be who i am
cause who i am is not my past

and i never thought i'd say
i was better off that way
getting fucked out of my brain
almost every single day

picking fights with total strangers
as i throw up in the train
i guess i'm just built that way

i was lying when i said
you would see my face again
change my name to john smith
buy a trailer and get hitched

to a girl with dirty shoes
i guess bad things come in twos
we're white trash through and through
with crooked smiles and dumb tattoos

i aint ever right
i guess i'm wrong most of the time
but it's hard to keep things straight
when the sun don't ever shine

i've been trapped down in the dark
for a couple months it seems
learned to sit up straight
shave my head and forget my dreams

fuck that
Track Name: MY FAVORITE BANDS
the songs that set you free
now ball and chain strapped to your feet
you travel town to town
just like a circus clown

singing songs that you wrote
over two decades ago
that you no longer believe in
but still sing cause it's convenient

you were my idol
my hero
my god

you're a liar
a fake
a fraud

so take off that fucking mask
and tell the truth
you're just cellophane
we can see through you

you've gotten a little older
and a lot less relevant
in an attempt to tip the scales
you try to inflate yourself

tell the kids that you're important
that they should watch and learn
but this aint the scene you started
it has changed and so have they

you were
one of my
favorite fucking bands

but now
when i see you live
i just get sad

so take off that fucking mask
and tell the truth
you're just cellophane
we can see through you

you swore that you'd never grow up
you swore that you'd always stay young
you swore that you'd never grow up
you feel trapped you feel stuck

so take off that fucking mask
and tell the truth
you're just cellophane
we can see through you
