Track Name: Know I am not a Vampire
I sleep all the way through the morning,
I sleep all the way through the day,
And then when the night comes I start up again,
I drink 'til I'm red in the face

Know I am not a vampire,
And know I don't mean you harm,
When I suck on your neck its affection I guess,
So feel free to fall for my charm

Even if its only for the evening,
I don't even have to stay the night,
From the look on your face I am easily replaced,
But trust me the feeling is the same

No I am not a vampire,
And no I don't mean you harm,
When I suck on your neck its affection I guess,
So feel free to fall for my charm,

We'll sleep all the way through the morning,
I'll sleep all the way through the day,
And then when the night comes I'll start up again,
I'll drink 'til I'm red in the face,
I'll drink 'til I'm red in the face,
I'll drink 'til I'm red in the face
Track Name: Don't Date Your Addictions
I am wanton, you're all that I crave,
You are what I want to reach for at the end of the day,
All I want is one more taste, but I know that's all it'll take,
But I won't let you creep back, back, back into my life

So I'm wanton, someone took you away from me,
And that person as it turns out, it was me,
But I know it wasn't a mistake, even though those are what I make,
But I won't let you creep back, back, back into my life
Cause I know you're no good for me,
So please understand why I keep you away from me

But I'm stubborn, and I made,
A promise to myself and I won't cave,
All I want is one more taste, but I know that's all it'll take,
For you to creep back, back, back into my life
Cause I know you're no good for me,
So please understand why I keep you away from me

But I'm human, and I made,
A promise to myself and I won't cave,
All I want is one more taste, but I know that's all it'll take,
For you to creep back, back, back into my life
Cause I know you're no good for me,
So please understand why I keep you away from me,
Please understand why I keep you away from me
Track Name: Sleep With Your Friends
Came over your house just like every other day,
Things have changed, I see you in a different way,
I have come to realize we should be more than friends,
But I'm sorry, I know I can not say a thing,
Wouldn't want to strain what we already have,
But I feel like you might feel like I feel, feeling like this could be so so much more

But if things changed would things be different?
Don't want to lose what we already have,
Too much thought has been wasted on all of this,
We should fuck, and see where, it leads us

WE SHOULD FUCK!!
WE SHOULD FUCK!!
WE SHOULD FUCK AND SEE WHERE IT LEADS US

I am sorry I know I can not say a thing,
You have to understand, that's just not how I am,
I internalize its so selfish why do I do these so so self destructive things?
Because its my nature,
I'll just write about it, dwell upon it,
Cause what would life be like without the pain?

But one of these days you're gonna hear this song,
Maybe at a show, heck you come to every one,
Read between the lines and take to heart what I have to say,
Could say your name, could you be?

NO I WON'T,
FUCK YOU!!
NO I WON"T
NO I WON"T
I JUST WON"T
Track Name: Jar On My Shelf
I am wary, so so wary,
I wonder what you'd say to me,
If you were among the living,
And not just in a jar on my shelf,
How would you judge me now?
Would you even be proud?
I'm a fuck up but I insist I'm still your son,
And I've grown a little bit since you've been gone

The last thing that I said to you,
Is that we would never talk, and it came true,
Looking back upon it now, I wish what I had did,
Is forgive you for giving up, and the lies that you said

I am anxious, so so anxious,
I wonder what you'll say to me,
When I meet you in hell,
Cause I don't know where else you'd be,
Except that jar on my shelf,
I should spread the ashes but,
They're all I have left,
I just can't forget just what, what I said,
And I'll take it to my grave,
Cause you can't forgive the dead, maybe in hell
Track Name: Sobriety Will Ruin Your Life
4 weeks sober is one month more than I wanted out of sobriety,
Cause I still feel a need to drink its a chemical imbalance,
And also, I want to drink with my friends,
Especially cause my friends still drink like fish,
Fish have no feelings but for some reason they care about me,
Don't want to disappoint them, I'd like to stick around,
I have to kick the habit, but God I really want a drink

Maybe this time things'll be different,
Maybe I won't black out, make an ass out of myself,
But who am I kidding?

I'm a blackout alcoholic, genetically predisposed,
Don't know what that means, didn't pay attention in school,
I was too busy drinking, drinking with my friends
Track Name: Time Travel Won't Change Who I Am
Message sent was left on the pavement,
Scrawled in chalk on the sidewalk,
But then it was washed away,
What I wrote has been replaced by a bleeding heart,
But wait its not too late, I could go back in time, to relive my life,
With some sense of future tense,
I'd like to take a chance at replacing what it was,
With what it could have been

Know for sure, rest assured that I will try hard,
Try to get it right this time,
When I accept your glance,
I know its a passing glance but I'll still smile,
Not again I missed the chance, if I could go back in time, I could relive my life,
With some sense of future tense,
I'd like to take a chance at replacing what it was,
With what it could have been

I could brighten my yesterdays,
So maybe their tomorrows,
Could turn out not half as bad,
Maybe today I wouldn't be so sad

Going back does not assure,
That things'll get better, better,
Cause I'm still myself, no better than what I,
Would be, that I could be, that I should be

I'm trying to learn to love someone else,
Cause I'm having a hard time loving myself,
Could I try, try to love you,
I guess the question is if you will do the same for me
