Another day, Another dollar sign, That in pursuit of, I’d lost my mind, I’ll sell you all my secrets, Every fucking last regret, That I tried to confine, I’ll tell you what you wanna hear, All of my deepest and darkest fears, You can call it a confession, If you’re sure that you’re getting, All the words that i’m letting slip, It’s that when I’m old and not around, You won’t choose my sounds, To be the soundtrack, Of your better days, And like your youth, I’ll fade away, If time is money, Then I must be a penny pincher, Saving every moment i get With a picture, So i can, Crosscheck my memories, To ensure its consistency, I am an open book, No one took the time to read Crosscheck my honesty, So my conscience will let me breathe, And if you really wanna get to know me, All you’ve gotta do is listen closely, I’ll tell you what you wanna hear, All of my deepest and darkest fears, You can call it a confession, If you’re sure that you’re getting, All the words that i’m letting slip, It’s that when I’m old and not around, You won’t choose my sounds, To be the soundtrack, Of your better days, And like your youth, I’ll fade away, Crosscheck my memories, So nostalgia will let me breathe, I’ll sell you all my secrets, Every fucking last regret, I am an open book, No one took the time to read

Hey pretty girl how’s it going, Did you write me in your next story, About a boy, With his head, in the clouds, Dreaming of something happy, Like your friendship and daytime napping, And when, you, held, my hand. So let’s pack our bowls with More than we can smoke, Light em up, Start a fire, in our hearts, Exhale your sorrows And breathe me in deep, Every breath that you take, Makes me shake at the knees, And your beauty is more than The average eyes see, Good lord darling, I’m at a loss for words. She said, It’s about time That you called me, Almost thought that you Didn’t want me, But the look in, your, eyes, Says otherwise, I’ve been drinking a lot And lately, I’ve been wondering if you Would date me, Even if it, was just for a bit. So let’s pack our bowls with More than we can smoke, Light em up, Start a fire, in our hearts, Exhale your sorrows And breathe me in deep, Every breath that you take, Makes me shake at the knees, And your beauty is more than The average eyes see, Good lord darling, I’m at a loss for words. Good lord darling, Good lord darling [I’m at a loss for words, I’m at a loss for words] The look on your face, Brings me down to earth, From your loving smile, Right down to your curves, [I’m at a loss for words, I’m at a loss for words] Exhale your sorrows And breathe me in deep, Every breath that you take, Makes me shake at the knees, Good lord, Girl [I’m at a loss for words, I’m at a loss for words]

Could I stay, Just one more day, I’m stuck inside, My own little mind, I’m going blind, Cause I can see, Forward in time, And it’s not you and me. Remember how we said, We’d stay together, We never said, It’d last forever, Endless hopes, Not enough dreams, Somehow we got lost in between, Cutting corners, Like I used to, Just to realize, I don’t miss you. I won’t stay, Another day. The phone rings, But I don’t answer, You’re just calling, Oh what a disaster, But I won’t stay, Remember how we said, We’d stay together, We never said, It’d last forever, Endless hopes, Not enough dreams, Somehow we got lost in between, Cutting corners, Like I used to, Just to realize, I don’t miss Not your hair, Not your eyes, Not your smile, Or even our long goodbyes, Not your laugh, Not your face, And even those times, We said were memories. Every thought of you, Was erased from my mind, Not a trace, Was forgotten behind, You’ve given up your hopes, I'm following my dreams, Now it's you who's lost in between, [Forget me] Forgetting all the things we’ve been through, Just to realize, I don’t miss Not your hair, Not your eyes, Not your smile, Or even our long goodbyes, Not your laugh, Not your face, And even your times, And your memories.

Garden Snake 02:56
You, took, me, Out to your garden Put, your, knife, In my back, and i’d fall to the ground But you’d take offense, And I hope your apple, Falls far from your tree, Your judgemental soil, Can spoil good seeds, I could cultivate, But I, can’t make you grow, Because, your rot beneath the surface, And you’ll reap what you sow. As the boy who cried wolf, But was the wolf all along, Gather the townspeople, To tell them off, Never a copy, but always a fake, And in a sea of smiles, you, Swim like a snake. I’ll be, over, the bridge that, You burned down, To make me, look bad, And in the ash, I’ll plant a seed, You’re myopic and naive, To think I was a sheep, But i won’t be waiting, For you to sink your teeth, Your malady, And incongruities, Are over, I hope you get frostbite, From the cold shoulder, I could cultivate but I, Can’t make you grow, Because you rot beneath the surface. As the boy who cried wolf, But was the wolf all along, Gather the townspeople, To tell them off, Never a copy, but always a fake, And in a sea of smiles, you, Swim like a snake.
