Track Name: Lost In A Room
Lost in a room, laying on the floor
Patience unconscious
Will you ever learn? No
Boy, what did I tell you?
Love makes you a dead fool
And I keep losing my cool
Can't you see that I'm hurting too

I guess I found the person you've been missing
But that ain't me it's someone else you're kissing
Is there someone else you're kissing?

And even when she says I'm feeling lonely
I try my best to make sure you still want me
Cause I don't even know if this is healthy
No matter what I say you never trust a single word that's reassuring

And when I say I love her, she's still upset now
And when I get frustrated, she says please calm down
But how could I not care at all when everything I say to you is wrong
I'm always wrong

Chelsea are you there?
Chelsea are you there?
Forgive me, I was scared
Chelsea wasn't there
Track Name: Break Your Own Bones
Darling, I am so sorry for what I said
I was not thinking clear enough for you to hear me
But now that it's all out, I just don't understand how that you don't love me
I guess I am just so crazy it's expected
Cause I don't deserve this or any of someone to actually care for

So lie your way to safety but I'll still see you in hell
And thankfully you didn't break nobody but yourself
This time words can't scar no meaning
Feels fine to be dropped completely

And baby, I've been feeling so strangely
Will you betray me? I guess I'm just paranoid and overwhelming
But now that I've found out, I just don't understand how I was so stupid
I guess I'm just insecure and you took advantage
Cause you don't deserve me or any of someone to be your lover

So lie your way to safety but I'll still see you in hell
And thankfully you didn't break nobody but yourself
This time words can't scar no meaning
Feels fine to be dropped completelAAAYYYYYYYYYY
Track Name: Chest Piece
Gotta love, love the way that you made this heart break
Cause I know that when it's over you're still wrong, foul play
So I won't be afraid of the love that we once made
Cause I'm sure that when we're older I'll be stronger for your games

But I'd be lying if I said I didn't hate you for the shitty half-assed reasons that you waited for the moment you found 'Plan B'
So don't tell me we were toxic when you're oh so fuckin' childish with the way we disagreed on certain things that never mattered much to me

And it's so funny how you told me you could never see yourself with someone else, but spent a weekend pitching someone else's tent
I hope someday you wake up crying, feeling oh so very guilty
Best of luck to your new boyfriend with his stupid little chest piece, honestly

So let it out loud, but keep it in
Cause you were going downhill in the end

This will be the last you hear of me
Burn my body and confess your sins
If I ever make it home again, I will never trust a god damn person
Track Name: 18 Summers
I spent about 18 summers. late teen bummer
I should've asked to call you, but I ain't the one to talk at all
I sit inside all winter as my parents tell me, "son, you've gotta learn to hold that tongue", but I kept mouthing off on bourbon eyes
Oh, Christmas felt so bitter when my dad died

But then there was you, standing on a mountain
Would you come down and talk to me?

And she said, boi I'm lonely are you lonely too?
Well come and be my fool
And I said, I'm so ugly, insecure, obtuse
Am I not cool enough for you?

Something's gotta change if you don't wanna switch positions
Someone's gotta give so now you've found another victim
A clawed thorn in my torn heart at your decisions, OOoooOOoOooOOOooOOoOaAAaaAAaH

And she said, boi I'm lonely are you lonely too?
Well come and be my fool
And I said, I'm so ugly, insecure, obtuse
What, am I not cool enough for you?
Track Name: Be Your Side
And so we started it off when we were younger in the winter
Have we really grown so far that we forgot how bitter spring?
And all this time I feel we have lost will find it's way back in our hearts
So we can waste it all on skin and in the end we'll feel unclean

Cause darling I could never be your side again
I'll always try to find my way back in
Cause all you do is haunt me in the end of this
'Til all that's here are words left unspoken

I never thought this would happen to ourselves, I feel ashamed
Are we even at the line now that we used up all our hate?
And could we call out all of our problems thinking God will always answer?
What's your reason for me this time?
Will I be better after summer?

Cause darling I could never be your side again
I'll always try to fight my way back in
Cause all you do is haunt me in the end of this
'Til all that's here are words left unspoken
Track Name: Don't Call My Name
I love the way you think you know me like the back of your hand
Tell your friends how much of a bad person you think I am
Oh baby, come on was it worth all this attention from my setlist
Cause now I wanna break you, shake you
Safe to say I never loved you
Your perfume won't leave me shaking on the floor
Not anymore, I beg for more

Oh darling, is that you calling my name?
I don't wanna hear all the shitty lies you have to say
Threw my body down your stairs and ruined my face
All of the pain, I fucked up my mind to make you stay

You can say just what you want, but I'll be laughing
Cause now I am the last nail in your coffin
I bet you never saw this coming, rest in piece to your reputation
Tell me how is it to feel dead, sleepless
Baby I'm doing what you did
And just as I am standing by your grave, I'll say my last goodbye and good riddance

Don't call my name x4

Oh darling, is that you calling my name?
I don't wanna hear all the shitty lies you have to say
Threw my body down your stairs and ruined my face
All of the pain, I fucked up my mind to make you stay
Track Name: San Junipero
You were standing all alone in a crowd of heat
Emotion takes control, I'd love to get to know you more than him or anybody else here
Stuck between a day-dream simulation and a life of compensation for whats back home

Baby I don't know if I could stay here, decay here
Just know that it's so hard for me to choose
And pardon me if I seem so abrasive, contagious
But how could I pass over without you

Now you've run off somewhere new and so I follow through the ages
I don't want to die alone, I don't want to live this life without her love

Her love is pure, unlike any other I've had before
And we can stay married, we can stay young
Or spend an eternity in what comes after

Baby I don't know if I could stay here, decay here
Just know that it's so hard for me to choose
And pardon me if I seem so abrasive, contagious
But how could I pass over without you

OOOOOO girl, you better watch your tongue
Cause you don't know what you're saying
You don't know about all the years we spent to be separated in two probable places
I can't think he'd forgive me for our love and how I found another someone in a land where death is washed away
There's just something about you that makes me wanna stay and it's your love
Track Name: Don't Close the Door
Overthink is all I do
Cause when you're out the room, I'll be looking for you
Cause I was so damn sure you said that you'd always stay
So when the times get tough, you hide from me
I'm getting sick of all the games of hide-and-seek
Cause so far, I'm always losing

I know you're running from me
I know that you're unhappy
You could do better than me
Everyone's unhappy with me

So when the door closes I'll be outside waiting in the dark and cold
Cause every time I try to save what's left
You're always lying to my face

Make me tired is all you do
Cause when it's time to sleep, I'll be crawling back to you
And when the morning comes, the question's still on my chest

No, I can't breathe and I can't speak
Cause everything I say will always make you leave

So when the door closes I'll be outside waiting in the dark and cold
Cause every time I try to say, what's left?
You're always coming back again

I wanna make you happy
I wanna make you stay
I wanna be the reason to all your better days
Track Name: Seattle Queen
Fear is going for the kill
I'm losing sense of feeling in my fingers as they try their best to keep you from this far as I could possibly be from separate lonely days and endless weeks
I hope you see now that I'm struggling

So can we end this conversation we both know should never be
And understand how hard this love is when we're sleeping in two different cities

I take a step forward, but you're falling backwards into yourself running out the back door
All I am suggesting is my trust means something more than just
A promise that I'll always do my best to fix what you can't ever say I didn't love you
You just had to take the chance and shoot me dead

And dear you're running for the hills
I'm tripping over traps all left behind you as I try my best to reach you from as far as you could possibly place me
Erase me from your faithless heart and brain and throw the love we made away

I take a step forward, but you're falling backwards into yourself running out the back door
All I am suggesting is my trust means something more than just
A promise that I'll always do my best to fix what you can't ever say I didn't love you
Oh for God's sake, girl

Oh can't you see I loved you?
Oh can't you see I love you?
Even after all this god damn time
You don't believe me when my tears came out all dry

Oh can't you see I loved you?
Oh can't you see I love you?
I guess I'm just no good
Track Name: Good For you
I was trying to be good for you
No matter what you put me through
Was trying to look good for you
So I smashed the mirrors in my room

Cause I know that you're uncomfortable
And I hope you know, cause of you I'm always gonna feel alone

I thought that you were something new
But you're just like someone I once knew
So should we maybe discontinue?
Before I turn completely rude

Cause I've never been so vulnerable
So I'm sure you know cause of you, I wanna break my fuckin bones

I don't think you'll ever notice
But can't you see I cared?
And oh it wears
