Track Name: Letters From War
The postage dates this 1968
Coffee spilt and postage stained
Under the floorboards of my place
Unopened letter with lipstick stains
Whom it's addressed to (well) it's a waste
Because it's 50 years post-dated
Inside a girl with a beautiful face
Writes "I miss you and I hope you're okay”

I know you had to go
I know you had to go
But that doesn’t make me hate you any less
I just want you home
I just want you home
I’ve been trying everyday, but I’m still a mess

I write you everyday
Just to let you know that I’m okay
I write you everyday
Just to make sure you’re staying safe
These letters from the war
Are the only thing connecting us
The one thing I adore
Is the one thing I’m not sure
Will come home
Will come home
(Please come home)
(Please come home)

I’ve been living every second of each day
Counting the minutes ’til I see you again
During dinner I still make two plates
You’re side of the bed, since you left, is still made
Now it’s past 6:15 on the eighth
I can’t believe that we’re already in May
Our anniversary (I know), I’m sorry I’m late
Just know you’re in my heart
When you come home, we’ll celebrate

I know you had to go
But that doesn’t make me hate you any less
Please come home
I’ve been trying everyday, but I’m still a mess
I know you had to go
But I hate you - God I hate you
Please come home
Please come home
I’m trying my best

I write you everyday
Just to let you know that I’m okay
I write you everyday
Just to make sure you’re staying safe
These letters from the war
Are the only thing connecting us
The one thing I adore
Is the one thing I’m not sure
Will come home
Will come home
(Please come home)
(Please come home)

I write you everyday
Just to let you know that I’m okay
I write you everyday
Just to make sure you’re staying safe
I write you everyday
Just to let you know that I’m okay
I’m writing you
I’m writing you
To let you know I’m NOT OH KAY

I write you every day
just to let you know that I'm OK
I write you every day
just to make sure you're staying safe
years later all these notes
are only missed connections to some ghosts I guess I'll never know
if the one you're writing to has come home
Track Name: Detonate
Here we go again
Another sleepless night
Something in my head is just not right
Pick apart the things that no one likes
It's an endless night
It's an endless night
First things first
We are not alike
So stake me in the back
With a knife alright
Put thoughts in my head
Even though despite
It's an endless fight
It's an endless fight

Of oceans
Commotion
I just can't explain
These words will
Have to do
To make my point made

That people change
Now I'm starting to understand that
All this rage bottled up
Is a ticking time bomb
The only way
To shut it off
To shut it off
Is to detonate
To detonate

I'm not afraid of the dark anymore
Because now I know my heads where the monsters are born
Now here I stand
With these crosshairs on my head
To solve all my problems
And forget what you said

Of oceans
Commotion
I just can't explain
These words will
Have to do
To make my point made

That people change
Now I'm starting to understand that
All this rage bottled up
Is a ticking time bomb
The only way
To shut it off
To shut it off
Is to detonate
To detonate

I dare you
To pull it
I could use
A bullet
I dare you
To pull it
I could use
A bullet
Track Name: Give It Up
That alcohol on your breath makes me sick
Who the hell do you think you are
pulling this
kind of stunt
no I'm done
cause we've been over this
and I'm so sick of all your bullshit

You've really outdone yourself this time
You've really outdone yourself this time

Sweetie I'm not gonna give you anymore
Give it up now
Give it up now
I've got nothing left to give
Give it up now
Give it up now

You really did it this time
I don't know what to say
after all the shit you pulled
this one takes the cake
now I know I didn't tell you
And I know that's a mistake
I know that's a mistake but

You've really outdone yourself this time
You've really outdone yourself this time

Sweetie I'm not gonna give you anymore
Give it up now
Give it up now
I've got nothing left to give
Give it up now
Give it up now

To all this meaningless emotion
To find something I deserve
Have a life I'm proud of living
Make it all seem less absurd
Hold the hand of someone closely
Find out things I've never learned
Cut the ties that make me hurt
And leave those bridges there to burn

Sweetie I'm not gonna give you anymore
Give it up now
Give it up now
I've got nothing left to give
Give it up now
Give it up now
Track Name: Cabin Fever
Wipe the blood from off your lips
with the back of your hand
cause if I cannot have you
Well than no one can
you can scream my name much louder
just like everybody else
I'm gonna to turn your pain to pleasure
like you've never ever felt

oh
I bet you never saw it coming
oh
it's no fun when you stop running

so get up
now we're playing hide and seek
don't you run away from me
I can taste you in my sleep
so I'm gonna take my time
and I'm gonna make you mine
and when the time is right
I'll let the bloodlust take over tonight

So get ready for a concert
made up only of your screams
Cause I promise you now baby
you've only seen me in your dreams
you can come out now I see you
you're behind that pillar right
I'm so sick of hide and seek
I'd rather have a killer night

oh
I bet you never saw it coming
oh
it's no fun when you stop running

so get up
now we're playing hide and seek
don't you run away from me
I can taste you in my sleep
so I'm gonna take my time
and I'm gonna make you mine
and when the time is right
I'll let the bloodlust take over tonight

Oh I'm gonna get you
No one can save you now
So gather round
Gather round
Tonight we're going to experience immortality at its finest
So join me in letting little wendy here
Know what's about to happen

Red rum (here I come) X a ton of times

so get up
now we're playing hide and seek
don't you run away from me
I can taste you in my sleep
so I'm gonna take my time
and I'm gonna make you mine
and when the time is right
I'll let the bloodlust take over tonight
so I'm gonna take my time
and I'm gonna make you mine
and when the time is right
I'll let the bloodlust take over tonight
Track Name: Abandoned Notebooks
You're the blood in my veins
You're the gun in my mouth
You're the gun in my hand
You're the shot that rang out
And I can't ever find a way out
Cause my heart is racing too loud

I didn't realize
Until it was too late
But you'd think I'd have pulled on the reins
To pull myself back
Back in from the flames
Well here I am
Two minutes too late
You were a ghost that
Will always remain in my bed
In my head
In my subconscious strain
You were a ghost that
Will always remain

Please give me something
I'm begging
I'm pleading
For anything
I just need some type of meaning
Please give me something
I'm begging
I'm pleading
For anything
For anything to make me feel alive
You're the blood in my veins
You're the gun in my mouth
You're the gun in my hand
You're the shot that rang out
And I can't ever find a way out

They say home is where the heart is
maybe that's where I left mine
but if home is where the heart is
why his mind so hard-to-find
I've been waiting for an answer
every day I search my mind
all I found is ghosts can't love
and neither can I
They say home is where the heart is
maybe that's where I left mine
but if home is where the heart is
why his mind so hard-to-find
I've been waiting for an answer
every day I search my mind
all I found is ghosts can't love
and neither can I

So the left side of the bed
Sits with an imprint of your body
As if you were still there
But you never were
Was it something I made up in my head
Just to fill up my chest
Just to fill up a black hole
That I call the universe
But you were the universe
And you were like the galaxy
As bright, as complex
And something I was always still learning about
But I'm not learning anymore
My education has reached its peak
And I can no longer go on
I can no longer go on

Please give me something
I'm begging
I'm pleading
For anything
I just need some type of meaning
Please give me something
I'm begging
I'm pleading
For anything
For anything to make me feel alive
You're the blood in my veins
You're the gun in my mouth
You're the gun in my hand
You're the shot that rang out
And I can't ever find a way out
Track Name: Oblivion
The consequences of my past are chasing me
but I wasn't ready to make any damn decisions

let's be meticulous
don't want to risk this
Now this is ridiculous
just let me sleep
I'm dying for something
wishing for nothing
and holding a secret
that I cannot keep

so go
so go
I'm trying to find a place to hide
but most of my demons are behind my eyes so go
so go
I'm trying to find a place to hide
But most my demons are only in my mind

my skeletons are hell
and I keep dwelling on myself
and everything I've ever felt
cause every feeling in myself
is what my mind wants to repel
cause I've been on my carousel
forever
and ever

my skeletons are piling up in the basement I've tried everything but I just can't get rid of them

let's be meticulous
don't want to risk this
Now this is ridiculous
just let me sleep
I'm dying for something
wishing for nothing
and holding a secret
that I cannot keep

so go
so go
I'm trying to find a place to hide
but most of my demons are behind my eyes so go
so go
I'm trying to find a place to hide
But most my demons are only in my mind

You say you can't
you went
to a different place
you lost what it meant
you don't know why
but now you're gone
I don't know when
you never sent
me any letters
but it goes on and on and on and on and on forever

let's be meticulous
don't want to risk this
Now this is ridiculous
just let me sleep
I'm dying for something
wishing for nothing
and holding a secret
that I cannot keep

so go
Oh just go
I'm trying to find a place to hide
but most of my demons are behind my eyes so go
Oh just go
I'm trying to find a place to hide
But most my demons are only in my mind
