Track Name: Use Your Words
I start making words, first I use my mouth
Then it goes in my head, that's when it all goes south

What do you want me to say? 
You say to use my words
Things get mixed in mind
That's when nothing comes out

I'm not making sense, most of the time
When it goes in my head, I just blame my mind

Give me pills, calm my nerves
Let me say it right
I'm so messed up
I'm not feeling myself

I'm not feeling myself
Don't know if I ever was
I don't feel so good
set me up before I fall
Track Name: Dr. Abernathy
I heard you like Jimi Hendrix too
You smoke potpourri and then you go to school
Staying high almost all the time
It's a funny way to fix a broken mind

Hanging out, wasting time
Trying hard just to get it right
Your head just seems to float away
Something's wrong but you don't say

I want you to meet my doctor
I want you to meet him tonight
(I want you to know you'll never be alone)

He'll fix you up just right
Track Name: Children
We were children, just staring at the spiderwebs
We were children, just staring at a wall
No direction, no confessions, no care at all

We were children, didn't know what we should hate
We were unaware that decisions soon become mistakes
We were children, just staring at the spiderwebs
We were children, just staring at a wall

I want it back, I want it all back
What I wouldn't give to change it all
I want a new day, less responsibility
I want it back, I want it all back

We were young then, now we count the wrinkles on our face
It was so easy, now we want it all erased
We were children, just staring at the spiderwebs
We were children, just staring at a wall

Sometimes we fall and its harder everyday
Sometimes we lose but there isn't a better way
to live this life

We were children, just staring at the spiderwebs
We were children, just staring at a wall
Track Name: Mirror
I lost all the cassettes you gave to me
There was good stuff there
I'm not who I think I see in the mirror
I'm getting tired of uniforms
It's wearing me out
Climb the mountain, used to think that I could
I'm not who I think I see in the mirror
Track Name: Things Change
This ship is taking on water
Your dissidence  is merely dissonant
You are who I thought I should be now

Things Change
I won't change

Have just one more glass of wine
if you have to, stay up a night.
Maybe you can explain why

Things Change
I won't change
Track Name: Backpatches
I don't have anything to prove to you
All these years I've been playing this game
You keep pointing your fingers now
I'm the same man I was yesterday

You keep saying I'm different
You're the one who's changed
I've been doing the same things
Your life's been rearranged

I haven't changed my clothes
Now you're only what you wear
I still give everything I can,
but you don't seem to care

Please open your mind
Please open your mind
The world is bigger than both of us
Please open your mind

Your only identity is the patches
That your wear on your back
No this ain’t about how I hate you
I just wish you would change

Don't shut me out because I'm the same
Don't shut me out
Track Name: Anesthesia
How am I supposed to love
When you don't even try?
Drowning in this mess I've made
Karma's laughing on the side.

I wish I could just learn to say what I mean.
Everything I've ever done has come back to haunt me.

I don't want to feel anymore.

I can't look you in the eye.
Don't know how to empathize.
I even keep secrets from myself.
My whole life's a lie.

Conversations and written words all seem like a test.
I wonder what it is and why I exist?

I don't want to feel anymore.
I don't want to fight anymore.

I'm still waiting.
Looking for an answer - I'm still waiting.
Something to help me live through this.

I wish I could say what I mean.
I wish I could feel anything
Track Name: No Mistakes
Won't make no mistakes again
Try and try, I just can't win
No I can't make no mistakes again
Try and try, I just won't win

Try and try, hard as I can
Try to be a better man
I know that day, won't be the same
I swear to god, I won't play no games

I can't win
I won't win

Won't make no mistakes again
Try and try, I just can't win
No I can't make no mistakes again
Try and try, I just won't win
Everyday won't be the same
Try and make no mistakes again

I'll try again
To make no mistakes

I won't make no mistakes again
Track Name: Watching You
I saw the way you sold it
To keep your smile alive
Governed by the holes you step around
Those holes you dug yourself

All your Friends come and go
As soon as they see your show

I'm watching you
Wave your flag around
