Track Name: Bully With a Bullet
Bully with a bullet
Got a trigger just to pull it
So what if I shouldn't
Just a bully with a bullet

Trigger finger itch
Don't you move an inch

Bully with a bullet
Shooting from a pulpit
Live it to the fullest
Just a bully with a bullet

Trigger finger itch
Insincere and quick
Disingenuous
Off without a hitch

A thin line of love and hate
Words like a thirty-eight
The hour's getting late
You're gunning over everyone for yourself
Just a bully with a bullet

You got no reason but still
You won't leave it alone
Living in a house of glass
Still you keep throwing stones
The piper calls out your name
And you pick up the phone
You won't hesitate
To help bury the bones

A thin line of love and hate
Words like a thirty-eight
The hour's getting late
You're gunning over everyone for yourself
Just a bully with a bullet

Just a bully with a bullet
Bully with a bullet
Track Name: Human
I'm only human when I say that I can't breathe
There must be something in the air tonight
I feel the walls are crashing in, closing on me
I think I nee the jaws of life

I can't explain just what I feel
But I know that it's real

I would steal, I would lie
I would lay down my life and die
Mad with love, understand
I would do anything that I can
For you I am human

I'm only human when I say I believe in
Faith and love and hope; and dreams
What gets me through the nights alone is I know that
Your heart is here with me

I fell into a thousand knives
My heart has realized

I would steal, I would lie
I would lay down my life and die
Mad with love, understand
I would do anything that I can
For you I am human

I fell into a thousand knives
Just tell me it will be all right

I would steal, I would lie
I would lay down my life and die
Mad with love, understand
I would do anything that I can
For you I am human
Track Name: If Only
Come see where the river flows
Life's got a rhythm that rolls
Our hearts are like the crashing waves
They hit the breach and slowly wash away
Away

The sun may rise, rain might fall
We may never dream at all
The brightest flame burns alone

I'm drowning slowly, I fall away
I can't hold on to yesterday
If only

Synthesize in the sunset
Burn away all our regrets
Wrap me in your wings

The sun may rise
Rain might fall

I'm drowning slowly, I fall away
I can't hold on to yesterday
If only

A memory so faded
A memory alone
How could I be mistaken
How can I carry on

I'm drowning slowly, I fall away
I can't hold on to yesterday
If only
Track Name: Miserable (Explicit)
I'm so fuckin' miserable
Now you're gone
Now I just lay in bed
And wonder what went wrong
The smell of your cigarettes
Burnt in the sheets
Makes me want to forget
And throw your shit in the street

This'll be the last time I
Gave another chance at tryin'
Nothings gonna change my mind
'Cause if we stay like this
We're gonna end up dyin'
I don't wanna lose my mind
And you're wearing me out

I'm so fuckin' miserable
Since you left
Memories are fingerprints
Some of hope and regret
I felt like a silhouette
Night after night
I played Russian Roulette
You switched the gun for a knife

This'll be the last time I
Gave another chance at tryin'
Nothings gonna change my mind
'Cause if we stay like this
We're gonna end up dyin'
We always were the last in line
There ain't no use in trying to hide it
Don't say it's gonna be this time
I know the look you give when you are lyin'
I don't wanna lose my mind
And you're wearing me out

Now you crawl on your knees
As you're beggin' me please
I'm more dead than alive
With you here by my side

We're never gonna get this right
There ain't no use in tryin' to fight it
Nothing's gonna save tonight
Because loving you is suicidal

This'll be the last time I
Gave another chance at tryin'
Nothings gonna change my mind
'Cause if we stay like this
We're gonna end up dyin'
We always were the last in line
There ain't no use in trying to hide it
Don't say it's gonna be this time
I know the look you give when you are lyin'
I don't wanna lose my mind
And you're wearing me out
Track Name: Searching for Seasons Gone
Breathe life into my heart
Some dreams will end before they start
Searching for answers
Amidst the dust
Taking for granted
Time as I rust
I've waited for a lifetime
To see the final frames
Played out in black and white
I traveled, searching in the night

Sifting through the embers
Tattoos of your memories
Bleed out from my eyes
Nothing is forever
We can never right the wrongs
Searching for seasons gone

Is anybody there?
Is anybody out there?
Am I the only one left of this affair?
I've searched beyond horizons
To find the "otherside"
It lies beyond the fear of broken dreams
Shattered in the night

Sifting through the embers
Tattoos of your memories
Bleed out from my eyes
Nothing is forever
We can never right the wrongs
Searching for seasons gone

You try to change me
You'll never break me
You're always bringing me down
You'll never change me
You'll never bring me down

Sifting through the embers
Tattoos of your memories
Bleed out from my eyes
Nothing is forever
We can never right the wrongs
Searching for seasons gone

Time is running out
Is anybody there?
Bleeding out
Won't back down
Time is running out
You'll never bring me down
Bleeding out
Searching for seasons gone
