Track Name: Threat Level Midnight
I'm walking up to your front door but you won't let me in
If it wasn't for the way you went about this then maybe we'd still be friends
I tried so hard to make this work but was led to a dead end
If only we could go back four months I'd break free from the suspense

I've sat here and pondered on a way to take back
all the things I did for you and realize this was all a mistake
This just goes to show that no matter
how hard you work for something you always end up empty handed

I've been holding on for way too long
Relying on you to keep me strong
I've been holding on for way too long
I need to let go, Now I'm letting go
Track Name: My Side Of The Story
You did this to yourself at the end of September
You bear the mark of a coward and it shows your true colors
I've sat here long enough to let you change their minds
So here's my side of the story

And it begins, another night in town with all my friends
Doing my best to keep you off of my mind
I'll pretend that what you said, it didn't affect me at all
Walking these streets with this fake smile won't last me very long

Just tell me what's going through your head
So I can lay this to rest

As minutes turn to hours since I last heard your voice
I guess I'll keep my distance seeing as I don't really have a choice
Emotions ran high, is it too much for you to handle?
I'm just trying to fill that fucking hole inside your chest

I've been pacing in circles for far too long
(Head buried into my pockets)
While you're on a bender again getting fucked up with your "so called" friends
As you took your last hit did you think about me at all?
As you took my hand and said I love you, did you even mean it at all?

Just tell me what's going through your head
So I can lay this to rest
Track Name: Back To Basics
It's four o'clock in the morning in this unfamiliar town
I can't seem to shake this feeling I miss having you around
At first, I thought it was just what I needed
But it was the worst decision that I have ever made

Let's take it back to the basics, back to when it first started
You said we were best friends, we were just a couple of kids with no ambitions
Until we finally grew older
Now I can't take this, another fight and I'm struggling to stay sober

I wish I could just see you, but I'm stuck here writing this instead

My bags are packed and I think it's time I headed home
These next eight fucking hours seem like forever and they want to make it known
The distance; feels like I'm just driving around in circles
There's only one thing keeping me moving and that's pulling up to your front door

I'm leaving the shore behind
The only thing between us is time

It's four o'clock in the morning and I'm rolling into town
I can't seem to shake this feeling cause you're nowhere to be found
At first, I thought I was just what you needed
But I was the worst decision that you have ever made
Track Name: You've Been Kearsed
I hope you're fucking happy, without me, cause I won't be coming back around again

It's too late for an apology, we're not doing this again

So save it, I'm tired of all these fucking excuses

Just drop it, you've ran out of all your second chances



It's getting cold outside, looking up at the Nashville skyline

And I hate to say that I'm missing you tonight

But that's okay, I know I'll forget about you eventually

Just like you did to me in a moments time



I'm giving up on you and all the shit you put me through



I hope you're fucking happy, without me, cause I won't be coming back around again

It's too late for an apology, we're not doing this again

So save it, I'm tired of all these fucking excuses

Just drop it, you've ran out of all your second chances



I must confess, I've been a bit depressed about all of this

Smoking way too many cigs to ease my mind

But that's okay, my friends are here to help me every step of the way

Looks like we're hanging with Captain and Jack tonight



I'm giving up on you and all the shit you put me through



I hope you're fucking happy.
Track Name: Bad Case O' Raider Face
So you say to me, that you're sorry and that everything will be okay
That's bull shit, we both know that you're lying through your teeth
Just face the facts and stop blaming me, I hope you miss being treated perfectly
I think it's time you heard me say

I'm moving on, to live for another day
It's time that I stop depending on you and your ways to make me happy
Track Name: My Goodbye
I heard about you and what you did
I can't believe this happened based on everything you said
I guess it's a calling, it's telling me that it's time that I moved on away from you

I'm finding out just exactly what you're made of and I have to say that I'm not that impressed
Just tell me what do you think makes you able to do those things you did behind my back

I'm calling out to you, that I'm finally through
I won't let you hold me back right here again
It just goes to show, the rate at which you grow
And how some things never seem to ever change

Now that you've heard my side of the story
I hope these songs can help you see
I'm doing just fine there's no need to worry
Not that you're worried anyway
I've got one last thing to say to you
This is my goodbye.

I heard about you and what you did and I have to say that I'm not that impressed
The only thing that I can take the blame on is that I fell for all your bull shit more than once

I'll ask myself, was it ever worth it?
Were you ever worth it?
(You did this to yourself at the end of September)
(I'm giving up on you and all the shit you put me through)
