Track Name: Scum
I want to see you suffer
I want to watch you bleed
I want to see death take you
As you kick and scream

And to think that I trusted you
Put my life in your hands
Well no more no more
This is my last stand

I'm sick and tired
I'm a human being
I'm not just some kid you'll throw away
Without reason

A great man once said
"A friend to all is a friend to none"
And that man was right
'Cause you're nothing but scum


You're nothing but scum
(Nothing but scum)
You're nothing but scum
Track Name: 16 Pounds
16 pounds
I carry with me
Can break a back

Can't love a world
When others won't make it back

And I walk on
This can't continue
I'm sorry my friend
But time's run out

16 pounds
Stop blaming yourself
You have enough to worry about
Without this weighing down
On your back your back your back

There's nothing more for you here
Remember this time last year?
You were alive you were well
We all want that back
We all want you back
We all want you back
Track Name: Blind
I swear I never knew
What he did to you
But now I'm standing here and
Know you did this to yourself


Oh dear friend
When did you go blind?
Consuming everything
You seem to love

Beating at the hands
That would give you up

One day you will see
Through two eyes black and blue
Three souls ground to dust
Four sons who never knew you

But it's still your fault
You never even tried
You still play the victim
You've been rotting inside
Track Name: Misplaced
Why is it every time
I open my mouth?
I know what to say
But the words don't come out

Nothing I do I think
I breath comes to life
I don't know how to mend my wounds
I just make more with my knife

NOT- It's so hard to let this die
THIS - Constant reminders in all that I see
TIME- You won’t detract from my life

The minutes pass like
Wind through mountains
And crack like
Aging wood

My eyes my heart
Are growing tired
My hands have let go

Letting all of this go

Don't blame your insecurities
On me, they're from within
I'm sorry it was me
Who reminded you of them

It wasn't my intention
But intent adds up to nil
I suggest you play it safe
And get prescribed some pills
