Track Name: Wax
Seventeen was contagious
I think I went chasing after too many things
Some half dreamt-up dreams
That always wound up getting the best of me
And I wish I had been more courageous
About following what I found passionate

You were taken from me
I don't want you back
You were taken from me
Now I don't want you back anymore

I've been keeping in journals
All the ramblings of a delusional mess
So when I wake up I just pretend that all this emptiness is just
A bad dream and everything is better than here
Because this convoluted idea of worth has me on the floor

You were taken from me
I don't want you back
You were taken from me
Now I don't want you back anymore

So I'm out
I've been losing all of my friends
Tie up my loose ends
I'm making the same mistakes again
Track Name: Eraserhead
I've been making sure my lungs are rotting out and stinking
You're on your telephone, I cleared my pack
And my standards of being are just getting lower
'Cause there's more to balance than not falling over

And then later I saw him kiss you on the neck
By the wall where I smoked my cigarettes and I felt sick
I don't think I could hold down my dinner
And oh my guts couldn't get any thinner so I went home alone
And I'll learn my lessons but I'll never cope

I was never sure how to catch your eyes
So I wounded something beautiful
and brought it to you so you could watch it die
And finally I, I knew that I had to, I had to hide
What will soon come to be set aside
But will linger in my mind till the day I die
