Track Name: Honeymoon
The moment I saw you I knew you'd be
The story of my life or at least the spring
Oh baby there's nothing I wouldn't do
To keep you around for the honeymoon

I'd stay up all night talking to you just to hear the sound of your voice
Yeah you're the only one for me until I have another choice

We're unstoppable baby, yeah that's what they say
Our love will last forever till it fades away
And all the things that I love about you I will forget
So let's be thankful that I'm not sick of you yet

Tell me all the stories in your head
Take up all the covers in my bed
Distance me from my closest friends
And tell me that we'll make it to the end

I'd stay up all night holding you just to feel the weight of your breath
But it'd take a fool to think that the end of us will be our death

I know that I want you just as bad as can be
I'd go to hell and back for you for the time being
And I know it goes both ways
I'm not perfect and it's clear as day
It's a matter of time before you and I
See the darkness underneath each other's eyes
Track Name: Nothing Fits
Right when I thought that my life was going somewhere
We met each other and I took a hundred steps back
I thought I needed you but all you did was cause me problems
I fell in love and I fell right into your trap

We didn't say what was on our minds, we said what sounded nice
And sometimes sounding nice means telling lies

If nothing fits then why can't I see that
I'm out of lies and I'm out of my mind
For thinking we could make it past the start
You said nice things for a couple of days and
You looked my way and you drove me wild
But all the sex in the world can't fix your heart

Started way too fast before you even knew me
Now I'm dating a stranger
Said you were real and honest but that was a mask for cruelty
Can't escape this danger

I can feel you slipping away but now I'm gonna try to fight
I'm addicted to this poison in my mind

If desperation and a low self vision is where we start
We end up with two angry people and a broken heart
Track Name: You Don't Know
Don't say I'm a lost cause
Don't say I'm dead and gone
I'm living alone and it feels so good
Don't pull me from the top


Don't knock on my door, don't make yourself known
I'm doing much better on my own
Don't let yourself in my home or mind
I'm better without you, I'm doing just fine


You don't even know my name
You can't even see my face
Say you want to know me well I know too much pain
Why can't I make you go away


You're into my mind, you're behind my thoughts
To give me a piece of what you've got
Corrupt my vision and distort my perception
Now nothing seems like it ought


Don't give me a look, don't give me the time
Don't build a new home, don't ruin my life
If you must stay, please make it a vacation
And stop generating my isolation
Track Name: All My Friends
I hate all my friends
I want different friends
I hate all my friends
And that includes you

I don’t have a lot to complain about
Except for everyone I know
Everyone’s got something now
That really makes me wanna throw up

And you must be thinking that our not included in this list
To tell you that i hate you would be the act of a masochist

I want to be sure that I've made myself clear
Because my friends deserve the truth
When I tell you that I hate all my friends
Please know that you are included

So I want to know you understand that you’re part of the problem
If you think that you can change well then I really think you ought to
Because I don’t like a single person that I’ve ever met and since
I've met you many times then one could logically conclude that I really just don’t like you
Track Name: Gimme a Reason
I've got a feeling today
That I can do anything
I'm six inches off the ground
And I can see what I haven't found

Though I'm not quite there yet
I can see what's coming next

I'm gonna make a plan
And I think it might just get me there
But if it goes awry
I'll stick my landing anywhere

I won't get there today
But I'm sure as hell on my way

Gimme a reason to give up
Gimme a sign that it's all about luck
Gimme a reason to up and quit
Cause I haven't heard a good one yet
