Track Name: Maiming Faces
How are we gonna make it
If you keep maiming faces?
Telling me I ain't okay...
How are we gonna make it
If you you keep taking chances
That you know you shouldn't take?

I wanna see you every night
I know I can't I've given you an awful fright
Plastic bags and orange pills, they just won't work this time
Don't you ever wanna set shit off and get this right?

Cuz you are the one
You brought me to this other side of love
And when I fall, yeah, I fall hard I fell to hell
And now i'm stuck here by myself
Stuck here by myself
Track Name: Hocus Pocus
You walked me into the dark
You taught me how to be cold
You walked me into the dark
You taught me how to be cold

Let's not make any promises this time
Let's not make any promises this time

I know I can't stay focused
You got that hocus pocus magic
Swimming around
In your, in your eyes

Your friends they think I'm crazy
But I'll be right here baby
Waiting for you
To come to my, to my side

You walked me into the dark
You taught me I was a fool
You walked me into the dark
You taught me I was a fool

Let's not make any promises this time
Let's not make any promises this time

I know I can't stay focused
You got that hocus pocus magic
Swimming around
In your, in your eyes

Your friends they think I'm shady
But I'll be right here baby
Waiting for you
To come to my, to my side

You walked me into the dark
You taught me how to be cold
Track Name: Revenge Therapy
You said you'd see me this year
But I guess you forgot
You said you'd see me this year
But I guess you don't miss me all that much

Your senses got me reeling
And I'm fucked up on these feelings
And I'm trying to do some healing
As I try to get over you

You said you'd see me this year
But I haven't seen you yet
You said you see me this year
But I haven't got a call or a text

Your senses got me reeling
And my mind's up on the ceiling
And I'm trying to do some healing
As I try to get over you

I'm so sick of Christmas
Dear You, I want you back
I'm so sick of Christmas
Cuz that's, that's when you fucking left

I'm so sick of Christmas
You're all so full of shit
I'm so sick of Christmas
And you never knew how to suck my dick
Never knew how to suck my dick
Track Name: Out West On My Own
Oooooh...

Yo, check this shit out...

Was a weird year
Thought I could do anything I want
Was a weird year
Thought I was in love but I'm not
Not I'm not! No!

Oooooh...

Remember that guy from last year?

He thinks it's me
But it's just him
He just don't wanna give in
He blames it on me and all my tears

He thinks it's me but it's just him
He just don't wanna give in
He blames it on me and all my fears

So you know where I'm going?

New directions, somewhere I could call home.
New directions, maybe out West on my own

Oh, oh, oh
New directions, somewhere I could call home
New directions, maybe out west on my own

Yo Chris, tell em what's up

Was a weird year
Thought I could do anything I want
(Define anything!) (Really?)
Was a weird year
Thought I was in love but I'm not
Yeah, we all think we're in love but we're not
(No No No No)
Yo! Shut the fuck up!

He thinks it's me but it's just him.
Track Name: I'm Not Willing
I'm not willing to hurt myself anymore
After Grandma asked me about the scars that are on my arms

I'm not willing to hurt myself anymore
Over anyone who doesn't give a fuck if I cause self harm

She said no guy is worth it
You know you're far from perfect
But you still try

Oooooohhhhh. Ooooooooh. Ooooooooh. Ohhhhhh...

She said no guy is worth it
You know you're far from perfect and no one is

I'm not willing to hurt myself anymore
After Grandma asked me about the scars that are on my arms

I'm not willing to hurt myself anymore
Over anyone who doesn't give a fuck if I cause self harm
