Track Name: Snake Eyes
I never got used to the way that you'd say my name
You said it many ways
Forever cautious on how I say things
Just to not give my self away
I'm broken, I'm tethered
I'll climb up a ladder
Just to see your point view
Now would you tell me what to do

I'm trying to move forward
A simple sign will suffice
I'll gamble my chances, it's my only vice
So I'll go ahead and roll the dice

I've always hated that you made me so convenient for your needs
You're like a parasite inside my mind
And as I bleed you feed
I wish that you would understand that I don't need this happening to me
I should run but I've lost the feeling in my feet

I'm trying to move forward
A simple sign will suffice
I'll gamble my chances, it's my only vice
So I'll go ahead and roll the dice
(for snake eyes)
Track Name: Constant Pressure
Lately I've been feeling closed in
Hanging like a clothes pin
Still on the line but there's not enough
Time to take this all in, to let it sink in
That we're not here forever but we still try

To find a way out, to find a way in
To find a more comfortable place in my skin
And sometimes I feel like I'm not gonna win
Cause the devil in my head is talking again

I'm always holding onto a thin rope
I'm losing my grip I feel like I might let go
And I'm trying to be the man my mother raised me to be but constant pressure is taking tolls on me

Lately I've been caving in, I can't talk to my friends
I've been feeling like a burden on them
And lately I've been feeling lost
I think I've had enough
I'm losing my patience and I can't

Anyway out, or anyway in
Can't find any comfortable place in my skin
And this time I know that I'm not gonna win
Cause the devil in my head is talking again

(Bridge)
And all this constant effort
Will I ever be where I wanna be
I know I'm in shallow water but
sometimes I wish that the waves
Could just carry me
Track Name: Alexander's
Fifth table to the left of the door
Been here so much I don't have to ask anymore
Fifth time that I've been here this month
Fifth time that you've filled up my cup
And you pour
Till you can't fill it up anymore

And at the end of the day I have done all that I can do to try to get to you I couldn't get to you and at the end of the day I have said all that I can say to try and get to you I didn't get to you

There was nothing I could have done
Cause my hands where tied
I don't know what I'm running from

Yeah I tried yeah I tried to convince you I'm fine
But the fifth booth is empty im losing my mind
Yeah I tried yeah I tried to convince you I'm fine
you don't fill me up now my cup is dry
Track Name: Not a Life Saver
I know in the past I fucked up
I know you said you'd never forget but you forgave
I hope you know this ain't a one way street
And I'd bet my bottom dollar you feel the same

I hope you know this sucks
Don't want to give you up
It's not that life's unfair
It's just that I have the worst luck
So one day I hope you feel the same

In the past I was wrong
Tried to convince you that
I'm not like them

Sure as hell that I was wrong
I tried to make a mountain of hill
Cried over the smallest spill
I wish you'd throw me up

You dosed me down
And ate me up
Is that enough to fill your gut

I'd rather drown myself
Than drown in you again
I hope you never go through this like I once did
I wish we never met
Unlike you I meant every word I said
