Track Name: Psychoanalyze My Mind
Psychoanalyze my mind
tear me up piece by piece inside
burn the bridges and torch the flag
don’t leave no breadcrumbs were never coming back

theres a fiery pit in my chest
a vicious fiend of wrath that takes no rest
he takes over my mind
i do what he says, i follow him like I’m blind

tell me what you believe
tell me what do you see
tell me what you know
what you’ve learned or what you’ve been told

take the wheel take the reigns
drive round till we go insane
take me me to the foreign land
do to me why you will i believe in your plan

dig the scalpel into my head
pick out the pieces of my brain you believe to be dead
take my memories away
make me a follower I’m no leader I’m your slave
Track Name: Flames
I don't know what more you want from me
I've got nothing left to give
I'm lighting my last cigarette
And I'm sticking in between your lips

The fuses burning down on this pipe bomb
The one where I put your name
I buried it next to the house where you live
I sit back and watch you go up in flames

I want to watch you go up in flames

The card you wrote me on my birthday
Is tossed in my fireplace
Along with every gift you made me
And every picture of your face

I want to watch you go up in flames

And you know I can be a little impulsive
Or what you call crazy
But I'll still be sitting outside your place
When it goes up in flames
Track Name: A Girl Named Madeline
When I was 17 I met a girl named Madeline
We like the same music and I like the band she was in
We would spend our days listening to records we bought
They knew us by name at every local record shops

We both have brown eyes but of a different shade
We like the same songs but in very different ways
I Love those lyrics but you like the notes and chords
I could hear a song for hours but you easily get bored

And then we took a stroll to our favorite eatery
I ordered the crawfish and you had the chicken chili
When I was 17 I met a girl named Madeline
We like the same music and I like the band she was in

She said tell me something you've never told anyone else
Tell me something super personal about yourself

I laid it on the line everything that I could share
I could tell she wanted to listen I could tell she really cared
When I was 17 I met a girl named Madeline
We like the same music and I like the band she was in

No I know the people come and go
But there are a few just need to hold onto
Madeline was my best friend when I was
Madeline was my first love

When I was 17 I met a girl named Madeline
And today she is still my best friend
We spend our days working at record shops
And spend our nights listening to the records we bought
Track Name: I Get The Feeling That My Hat Is On
I get the feeling that my hat is on
But I know there is long gone
It felt so safe and secure
It once was but now it's not here

What it feels like to lose a friend
Over something that you just couldn't mend
What it feels what it feels this way
What it feels like every day

I'm trying to get bye
I'm trying not to reply
I don't want to be that guy
That's not how I want to live my life
Track Name: When Being Sober Becomes Another State Of Mind But Not The One You Usually Identify With
I set there drunk at another party last night
Conflicted by different thoughts in my mind
I sat there drunk at another party last night
People danced while I had an internal fight

People hit their bongs and people smoked there weed
While I sat there getting pissed off at me
People had good times and people drink their drinks
While I sat there getting pissed off at me

When being sober becomes another state of mind
but not the one you usually identify with
When every substance takes over your life
And a normal feeling is just to drift

When do I say enough is enough

I sat there at the party feeling sorry for myself
Hoping someone would start feeling as bad as I felt
I didn't want to be alone but I sure didn't want company
I kind of wanted to stay but I kind of wanted to leave

I heard Dylan say everybody must get stoned
I heard the drinks clink in the drunkards moan
It was a nice night but then it started to rain
Everybody left the party but I stayed there the same

I set there soaked on an old torn up Couch
That was waiting for the garbageman to come around
I never thought I'd see the light of day
I never thought I'd finally drifted away

And all the colors look brighter and all stars seem higher
i could feel myself getting lighter and lighter
i could see my feet departing from the grass
i could feel the sound waves and all the time pass

When being sober becomes another state of mind
but not the one you choose to identify with
When every substance takes over your life
And a normal feeling is just to drift
Track Name: Good Gesture
They said it be a good gesture a good used of your time
They said it would mean a lot but it didn't mean much in my mind
But now she's gone and I feel a little upset
But now she's gone and I feel a sense of regret

I guess I'm a little too set in my ways
I view the world like it is revolving around me
I don't think about anyone else
I only ever think about myself

I'm doing my best to search deep inside your soul
I want to find the things that make you whole
I want to be just like you
I want to do the things you do

I know that I am on my last limb
I know I am setting sail on this sinking ship
And at the mountaintop you cut my rope
I start falling and it catches a rock and I choke but I understand

As the last teardrop Falls for my eye
I put myself The farthest from my mind
I start to think about you
Wishing there was something I could do
Track Name: God Only Knows
I am trying to look at your eyes
They are a vessel into your mind
I can read them just like a book
They tell a story with a hero and a crook

There's no pictures but the words paint a scene
There's heartache and hope and there's a Theme
I find myself rooting against the enemy
When in real life I know he's me

I guess that I should hate myself for what I did
I guess some mistakes are too big to forgive
But I don't feel any form of regret
If I had the chance I know I do it again

Call me anything you need
Say what you want about me
Take your cheap shots and low blows
Do whatever helps you sleep God only knows

I won’t apologize for anything I said
I feel OK about it now and I will when I'm dead
And you can be pissed and you can be mad and you can scream
But you know in the end that won't change a thing
Track Name: I Am True
Well I'm driving down this road I got to find a new place to go
And these tumbleweeds that follow me down the street I guess I got no home

well I don't know what you want
and I don't know what you see
and I don't know why you choose
to believe in me

Well I'm driving down the streets I got to find a new place to be
The man behind the bar says anther whiskey?

well I don't know what you want
and I don't know what you see
and I don't know why you choose
to believe in me

When I'm down on my luck
I'm stuck in a rut
Not sure if I can take this much
But if it's for you, I am true

Well we are riding down this Avenue
Your hand in mine they're stuck together like glue
I know you never wanted to spend your life on the run
But if you and I are together the setting doesn't really mean that much

well I don't know what you want
and I don't know what you see
and I don't know why you choose
to believe in me

One day they'll find me in the writ me right from your arms
But I'll drive the end of the earth to make sure that day is prolonged
I know our time is fleeting and I know our time short
But if we are together it's worth it I know that for sure

When I'm down on my luck
I'm stuck in a rut
Not sure if I can take this much
But if it's for you, I am true
Track Name: Imaginary Mind
I feel a little overwhelmed
Like you cast a spell
On me
I'm not trying to kill your buzz
I just need to know what
You did to me

Did you slip it in my drink
Or my just drifting to sleep
Did you do something to me
Or is it all in my imaginary mind

I feel lightheaded I feel sick
I feel like I am on a ship
Out to sea
Where does this feeling spur from
From my brain or from my gut
From my gut

Did you slip it in my drink
Or my just drifting to sleep
Did you do something to me
Or is it all in my imaginary mind

Why am I feeling so sad
Am I on the brink of going mad
Well we all go a little mad sometimes
