Track Name: Windy City
I know you love the horizon
I guess the line of my jaw just can't compete anymore
And all the old architecture built a love in your heart that I just couldn't seem to keep standing up

I hate the way all the buildings form the ugliest smile
That sneering skyline that stole you away
Or could it be?
That I was the fool misunderstanding those glassy monuments for what you'd never be to me.

This windy city - it could have been ours.

I can't believe how hard I fell for the pretty eyes on an empty girl.
You're just like all those skeletons that haunt the waterfront
A sad reminder of something structural that once was.

There's just no way you could possibly afford that apartment
Or think your problems could be solved by that move.
Or could it be?
That it's not me that was making you so unhappy
And you're just selfish and have something to prove.

This windy city - it could have been ours.
It could have been ours
No, you can't have this city all to yourself.
Track Name: F(r)iend
I said I'm fine.
I said I'd be more or less okay.
At least I know I can live with myself at the end of the day.

I never thought you would sink that low
But you're the worst man that I've ever known.
I gotta know, could she really be worth it?
We were the best of friends but you know you deserve this.

You common swine
You're the filth that I should have washed away.
I hope you know I hate you more than the worst of enemies.

I wish the worst on you.
I want bad things to happen to you.
It makes me sick to think I trusted you just like my brother.
The worst mistake I ever made was calling you my closest friend.
I hope you die alone you filthy piece of human trash.

How does it taste?
The seconds dripping slowly off the side of my plate.
A bloated dog always begging for a "bone"
Forever living in my shadows.
Track Name: Wrong
I used to think a lot about myself and all the things I never did
How could I know the grass was greener if I was so unsure of it?
I should have left you long ago, instead you threw me to the floor.
I guess the grass is always greener if you have never been there before.

I never loved you enough to let you go.

For all the things you never said to me
Well, I won't ever look back again.
I thought I knew how much I loved you
But I was wrong about that again.
There are consequences when I'm wrong
(I won't ever look back again)
I should have left you long ago.
(I won't ever look back again)

Well I fell in love with a girl
My second worst mistake
She was completely wrong for me but I didn't want her heart to break
You know she left me stranded
She ran away with my best friends
And she refused to face it
She even broke up my band
Well you know what they say, right?
She's gonna get what she deserves
I hope the beer and the bars are worth it
I hope her lesson never gets learned

How many times do you have to hear it before it all sinks in
You are an awful person and you were wrong.
You were wrong.

For all the things you never said to me
I won't ever look back to you.
And just because you don't believe it doesn't make it any less true.
There are consequences when you're wrong
(I won't ever look back to you)
There are consequences when you're wrong

Just because you don't believe it doesn't make it any less true.
Track Name: Laces
To you and yours,
I submit my intentions.
Think and say what you must, but we are only what you've made of us.
You can consider this my resignation from the rest of your life.
I'll secure it with laces and pull the knot real tight.

It's not even that I'm sad, I'm indifferent to your voice again.
And I'll keep feeding you empty lines that I read from a book with a crooked spine
Everyone needs some closure in their lives and you never gave me mine
When you come to terms with the things you did,
Know I once loved you and I never will again.

Well I stood on the edge of the world and I hoped you would join me.
But you thought only of yourself, why can't the both of us be happy?
So I followed our lifelines back to the place where they intersect
And I ripped out the seam by each individual thread.

While your time tiptoes away like a moth drawn to flames
I'll be waving with both hands and enjoying my days
It's a shame you used to radiate so bright
And that your skin was always mine
Because I watched you flash and burn out like an awful Christmas light.

It's not even that I'm sad, I'm indifferent to your voice again.
And I'll keep feeding you empty lines that I read from a book with a crooked spine
Everyone needs some closure in their lives,
Fuck you, you gave me mine.
When you come to terms with the things you did
Know I once loved you and I never will again.
