We're living in repetition
Content in the same old schtick again
Now the routine's turning to contention
Like a production line going over and over and over rollercoaster

Now I cannot speak
I've lost my voice
I'm speechless and redundant cause I love you's not enough
I'm lost for words

Choreographed and lack of passion
Prototypes of what we were
Went full circle till I'm nausous
Taken for granted now I'm wasted, faked it, ate it, now I hate it

(instrumental interlude)
(chorus) (2x)


Well I've got some scattered pictures lying on my bedroom floor
Reminds me of the times we've shared
Makes me wish that you were here
Cause now it seems I've forgotten my purpose in this life
Well all the songs have been erased
Guess I've learned from my mistakes

Well, open the past and present now and we are there
Story to tell and I am listening
Open the past and present and the future too
It's all I've got and I'm giving it to you

Loose ends tied in knots leaving a lump down in my throat
I'm gagging on a souvenir
Live to fill another year
Well drag it on and on until my skin is ripped to shreads
I'm leaving myself open wide
Living out a sacrifice


If you got no one
And I got no place to go
Would it be alright?
Could it be alright?
(repeat beginning, then chorus)

Walking Alone

Come together like a foot in a shoe
Only this time I think I stuck my foot in my mouth
Thinking out loud and acting in vain
Knocking over anyone that stands in my way

Sometimes I need to apologize
Sometimes I need to admit that I ain't right
Sometimes I should just keep my mouth shut
Or only say hello
Sometimes I still feel I'm walking alone

Walk on eggshells on my old stomping ground
Yet there's really no one left that's hangin around
Isn't that a rather familiar face?
Too drunk to figure out they're faded away


(instrumental interlude)
