Track Name: Loveless
I dug my shoulders into my floorboards
I've got the black and blue to show
My bedroom ceiling knows me inside out
More than you could ever know

And it breaks my heart to tell you that I don't love you
I swear I want to, but I don't
I know I should tell you, but I won't

December's killing me
Just let me make it to the new year, but the same old hell
Leave me with my loveless self

Always look ahead, but my mind is on the past
This day goes on and on, it never ends
How did it get this bad

A change that never comes, where's the fire in me now
Dissipating, ashes scattering around

A vicious cycle, round and round I go again
Constant regress becomes the process

Slow down, moving to fast
Better to slow down, find some other way out
Track Name: A Letter Unread
If only I could say that I had no regrets but looking back
There isn't much I managed not to fuck up yet
Cause I'm a drunk, a liar and a theif
Unable to crawl out of bed
Blind to the nights I've spent knowing the end result

Yet diving in anyway, wasting my days away
Sick from the though of every way I went wrong

Five years spent, breaking the glass that I couldn't mend
Well I'm done with it so I'll breathe it in
Swallow my pride and begin to end

I just want to love myself
So maybe I'll put this bottle down
Trade it in for memories and some forms of dignity
I can't live with it, so I'll just live without
And take back myself, flush this illness out

I'm so sick of how my mood swings with this February snow
I hate how I can't see the sunset from the corner of Chebucto
And I've accepted all responsibility I own
Until I'm drowning in my penitence, a sinking stone

Six years spent, as I sat on idle hands wondering
Is this all I will amount to?
Is this all I have to give after what I've been through?
Things are different now
If there's any good in the world I will find out

Grasping at straw
I need a way to settle in, it's torn me down
And built me into an object to just find comfort with

Maybe some day I'll be able to say I have no regrets
