Track Name: Supercollider? I Just Met Her!
Here I go again, coming to terms with who I am.

Here I go again, trying to find some room to breathe.
It's like the weight of the world picks the worst times to press down on me.
And oh, there's never a time when everything's perfect and nothing's wrong.
(Nothing's wrong) and all the money in the world isn't worth it.

This place is the reason, that I've been so jaded.
I've been to busy killing time to realize my dreams are faded.
I understand that this could be my last chance.
I just need to take the risk.

My wasted potential is on borrowed time, and where I am right now is no good for my mind.
I'm just looking for something that can break this stride, before I have to watch my present and future collide.
I'm down on myself, but that's not the the worst part. I've got no drive left. I've got no heart (I've got no heart)

This place is the reason, that I've been so jaded,
I've been to busy killing time to realize my dreams are faded.
I understand that this could be my last chance,
I just need to take the risk

My last chance.

This is why I'm so jaded. My brain's checked out I just don't know how to say it.

This is why I'm so jaded. My brain's checked out I just don't know how to say it.

I understand that this could be my last chance. Let's hope I do something about it.
Track Name: Setbacks
I hope I didn't turn in to your biggest disappointment.
I'm angry at myself for things I can't control.
I don't want to put in all this work with nothing to show for it.

All I need is somebody to point me the right way, to tell me I'm doing the right thing. (Right by me)
And I hope down the road, through all the setbacks and the shreds of doubt that I made you proud.

We've seen our problems but we always pull through. I know I owe something back for everything that you do.
The time that you spent, and all that you sweat, and all of the blood that you shed, to give me a bed to sleep in and a roof over my head.

All I need is somebody to point me the right way, to tell me I'm doing the right thing. (Right by me)
And I hope down the road, through all the setbacks and the shreds of doubt that I made you proud.

And it's by choice that I occupy this space, but the sound of your voice keeps me from staying in place.
And it's by choice that I occupy this space, but the sound of your voice keeps me from wasting away.

And all I need is somebody to tell me I'm doing the right thing.
All I need is somebody to point me the right way, to tell me I'm doing the right thing. (Right by me)
And I hope down the road, through all the setbacks and the shreds of doubt that I made you proud.

That down the road, that down the road I finally made you proud.
Track Name: My Best Interest
One ear and out the other, never retain anything that I say and it drives me insane.
I should just talk to myself, the answers I get, they give me help.
And every fight leads to repetition and me losing some ground.
But I'm tired of writing all of the same things down, and changing the phrasing to make it sound profound.

I've seen the months fly by, they turn to years before my eyes. With or without you I've moved on, it's been different every time.
I'm not waiting around anymore, I'm changing everything today.
And if I'm moving too fast and you get stuck in the past, then that's where you'll have to stay, far away.

I'm dying for some progress to put an end to all my stress.
I've had my share of broken bones that held me down and set me back less.
I said I'd never let, let you rot straight through my head.
But I'm walking out of this bloody mess with whatever is left of my self respect.

I've seen the months fly by, they turn to years before my eyes. With or without you I've moved on, it's been different every time.
I'm not waiting around anymore, I'm changing everything today.
And if I'm moving too fast and you get stuck in the past, then that's where you'll have to stay.

Far away from me and all my dreams, you are nothing but a distraction.
You're the ice at my feet that's keeping me from gaining any traction.

I don't know what it's gonna take for you to hear me out.
All I know is it's not in my best interest to stick around.

I've seen the months fly by, they turn to years before my eyes. With or without you I've moved on, it's been different every time.
I'm not waiting around anymore, I'm changing everything today.
And if I'm moving too fast and you get stuck in the past, then that's where you'll have to stay.

So keep your distance.
I don't know what it's gonna take for you to hear me out.
All I know is it's not in my best interest to stick around.
One ear and out the other, never retain anything that I say.
It's driving me insane, so you'll stay far away.
