Track Name: Holding Hands With The Quicksand
Let's run away to the sunset
Let's pretend that's where we met
We'll make the sunrise ours
There is nothing between us and the stars

My feet are wet
Cause I got holes in my shoes
My heart still beats
Because I'm coming after you

Thirst in the heroes is coming strong
Get a hit from nicotine for lungs
I will hold my breath
Until I'm in your mouth again

My feet are wet
Cause I got holes in my shoes
My heart still beats
Because I'm coming after you

Living life backwards perfectly fine
Pre-concieved notions, or obvious observations
I could pretend that I don't love you
But that would be a waste of time
I'll always be holding hands with the quicksand

Let's run away to the sunset
Let's pretend that's where we met
Holding hands with the quicksand
Track Name: Problematic
The not a cloud in the sky, disguise
Surrounded by, anxiety of addicts
Problematic, go west routine
How long have I been chasing this dream?

I'm all by myself
Know you're proud of me
Twas the very best thing
Though at the time it felt like death

Try not to say a word
Lets watch these actions fuck it up
I got a roof over my head
In this paradise that feels like hell
The drive north
It reminds
LIfe is alright
When it's as pretty as a loving heart

I'm all by myself
Know you're proud of me
Twas the very best thing
Though at the time it felt like death
Track Name: August, You Normally Kill Me
I looked at you and I knew that we were done
I drank a fifth of vodka in the garage
Never saw your face or the dog again
That's when my new life began

It's different now
I have finally found
The courage to put the bottle down
When or if I see your face again
I will try to make amends

Probably won't be able to hold it in
Not that it's that important anyways
Save it for another day
This basement window is dirty
They can't see me, and I can't see them

It's different now
I have finally found
The courage to put the bottle down
When or if I see your face again
I will try to make amends

Oh August, you normally kill me
But lately you've been kind
It's like were best friends again
Like when I was a South Jersey kid
Looking across the Delaware
Staring at the Philadelphia skyline
I haven't thought about those days in a long time

I know it looked like you didn't care
It's a two way street and it's not always fair
It's not your job to stick around
While my sobriety was buried underground

It's different now
I have finally found
The courage to put the bottle down
When i see your face again
I will try to make amends
