Track Name: Summer
Can you see what I see?
I've been trying to stay alive off of coffee and no sleep
Staring out the window, these days I'm lonely
We don't really talk and you don't seem to know me.

I've learned that thinking happy thoughts won't stop all these bad dreams
I can scream at the top of my lungs
It works better than any song I've ever sung.

You know it's hard enough to be alone for one night
I'm at my breaking point so
Why do you leave for so long?
I'm tearing myself apart every day you're gone
I'll never survive on a crowded bus
Headed miles away from home.

You messed with my head
It's okay, I don't think that I'll ever want to think again
These memories make me never want to leave my bed
I hate seeing you around with all your other friends

I've learned that thinking happy thoughts won't stop all the guilt that hits me
I can scream at the top of my lungs
It works better than any song I've ever sung.

You know it's hard enough to be alone for one night
I'm at my breaking point so
Why do you leave for so long?
I'm tearing myself apart every day you're gone
I'll never survive on a crowded bus
Headed miles away from home.

You can't hide behind your rotted ruined mind
Or a girl who's just in time
But she's far to blind to keep you alive.

You know it's hard enough to be alone for one night
I'm at my breaking point so
Why do you leave for so long?
I'm tearing myself apart every day you're gone
I'll never survive on a crowded bus
Headed miles away from home.
Track Name: Artistry
You've run out of things to talk about
But the sun's about to rise
And everyone who knows you wants to try and see
What the world looks like
Through your eyes.

When you were younger they thought you were a problem
Turns out you're just an artist
You'll never sleep, you'll never sleep
The night's so tempting you can finally think.

When you turned sixteen
You breathed a sigh of relief
Freedom never felt so good 'till you
Forgot to look both ways, to finally say:
"This might be something more than I can take."

When you were younger they thought you were a problem
Turns out you're just an artist
You'll never sleep, you'll never sleep
The night's so tempting you can finally think.

Two more years and you're on your own
But I don't think you can do it alone
Two more years, and you're on your own
But trust me, you can't do this alone.

When you were younger they thought you were a problem
Turns out you're just an artist
You'll never sleep, you'll never sleep
The night's so tempting you can finally think.

Everyone who knows you wants to try to see what the world looks like
Through your eyes
But they'd never sleep.
Track Name: So Cool
You know it's hard to think
You know it's hard to breathe
You know I know myself
No matter what it seems.

I know you're far away
I know you're not for me
I know you know yourself
No matter what it seems.

Well you're so wrong
Yeah, you're so wrong.
But you're so cool.

She only looks at night
She's out on the street
She knows you're all alone
And you're scared to speak.

You could go outside
Give her what she needs
But now she's all alone
And you're scared to speak.

You used to be so wrong
Now you're not wrong.
Now you're not cool.

You used to be so wrong
Now you're not wrong.
Now you're not cool.
