Open House

1.
There's a chalkboard in the kitchen that reads "Merry Christmas" and had for months Did you leave it there to signify the day you quit us Am I just a lost kid with a broken concept of love? Raised by two examples that both gave up All I want is to be loved and to give love back You should've showed up to the wedding dressed in black Maybe things would've made more sense if they were never permanent All I'll ever take from this is that the four of us can't coexist Family bonds have broken down, word made its way around town All I want is to be loved and to give love back You should've showed up to the wedding dressed in black If you knew on that day that there was still an empty space, you should've showed up to the wedding dressed in black So this is how it feels when a nightmare becomes real I can't shake this, I can't take this, but I will survive this

I've accepted my fate, that I'm just old news and I'll walk this plank until I'm discontinued You are the sharks beneath my feet, you are the endless waves of heat and I don't care to feel you anymore Maybe you could point me in the right direction cause at this rate I'm open to any suggestion Any shot at a fighting chance again would leave me no option but to win, maybe you could point me in the right direction I'll wander around my house alone, discover new ways to get stoned Maybe light a cigarette in a desperate attempt to feel completely numb
3.
You play this shitty game by not saying what's on your mind, no I'm not entertained I'm worried most of the time I'll let you settle down and take all your make up off, I like you better this way when there's no front to put on Think of all the times you've let me down and now I'm thinking of the nights that you left me filled with doubt You've got me thinking this time that I can learn to live without You've left me thinking this time that I can learn to live without you Remember me when you watch the sun wake up, when you pause to fill your empty endless coffee cup No I won't be there or anywhere, I'm out of sight without a single care I want to wipe that smile off your face, I want to turn your blue skies to gray I want to break you down in the worst way

Skin 02:07
The skin I'm in today is weathered from past mistakes I've got a wound for every memory, a little token for me to keep These stupid three minute songs have been my salvation all along What do you do when you've got nothing left Search for worth inside of your chest Gave it up to all of your friends, deserted and lonely in the end I know the way like the back of my hand Take me away to foreign lands where I can sing all of these lines to put myself to sleep at night Drain every bit of energy, I'm dying like the autumn leaves
5.
Your Couch 03:16
Passed out on your couch, downtown LA We both know punk rock doesn't pay I'm only 21, I should be having fun, instead I'm sleeping in Where'd you learn to be yourself in a world with everyone else? I don't want any part of it, I don't want my hands on this diluted art that's been turned to shit You say I'm nothing but a kid with blind ambition, talking to myself hoping someone listens Nobody cares and it will sink in one day Where'd you learn to be yourself in a world of everyone else? I just want to be myself cause I'm so sick of everyone else.
