about

This is a love letter to all my friends and family. I could never thank anyone of you enough for all you've done for me. This record was recorded in my bedroom (not the best quality I know), but I'm so proud of it as a whole. I hope that everyone who listens to this will love it, because I love it, and I loved making it.
ALL PROCEEDS GO TO THE AMERICAN FOUNDATION FOR SUICIDE PREVENTION
Thank you to Will Leach for the amazing artwork (hit this guy up for any art needs)
Thank you to my wonderful mom for putting up with me screaming in my bedroom recording these songs at all hours of the night.
Thank you to anyone who listens to this, you mean the world to me.
And a final thank you to all of the buds, no matter what, you're always welcome in my home and in my heart, and I will always be down for a Taco Bell run with you guys.

Track Name: Working On Myself
I'm taking pills to try to go to sleep
cause i've been ignoring what my body needs
and i've spent these days and nights alone
it's what i deserve from what i've shown

just trying to work on myself
maybe i need a little help
cause i'm collecting dust on my own shelf

and i'm trying real hard to forget
the person that i know i've been
it's something that i need to fix
because you're getting the blunt of it

just trying to work on myself
maybe i need a little help
cause i'm collecting dust on my own shelf

and it feels like there's no where to go
i've been a piece of shit i know
and that not the person i want to be
that's not how grandfather raised me
and i don't wanna make you upset
i want you to know you're my best friend

but justin
your words mean nothing
but justin
that's exactly what you said
Track Name: On The Drive Home
look at all the cars pass under all of the street lights
i wonder, who am i?
i know that i'm no follower, but i like to please people for sure, her
and even when i act like i don't care i am fully aware
that i'm not fooling anyone looking like i'm so eager to run

and i feel water in my throat
hold me under let me choke
from this liquid in my lungs
sad to see me die so young
and im not saying that i'm gone
don't you ever get me wrong
i'm just saying that i'm lost
and i wonder what's the cost

and i wear big sweaters cause i'm self conscious
taking in deep breaths because i'm feeling a little nauseous
and all i wanna be is alone on the drive home
there's something about this dark road
that makes me not feel so cold
and all i wanna be is alone on the drive home

and i feel water in my throat
hold me under let me choke
from this liquid in my lungs
sad to see me die so young
and im not saying that i'm gone
don't you ever get me wrong
i'm just saying that i'm lost
and i wonder what's the cost

and all i wanna be is alone on the drive home
all i wanna be is alone on the drive home
thats not true thats not ture
all i wanna be is with my friends oh i miss them, oh i miss them
Track Name: Tattoo
well you make me forget that trump is our president
and i think you're cooler than fight club
and that's a movie that i love
so much so that i'd get a stick and poke of a bar of soap
but only if you did it and only if you dig it

i'll let you give me a tattoo
that's how much i trust you
i'd let you give me a tattoo
that's how much i love you

and you make me forget that i'm working 30 hours a week
while still going to school honey kiss me on the cheek
and i like you more than sorority noise and that's my band of choice
so much so that i'd get a stick and poke of the ghost
but only if you did it and only if you dig it

i'll let you give me a tattoo
that's how much i trust you
i'd let you give me a tattoo
that's how much i love you

come on baby you can do whatever you please
come on baby you are what i need

i'll let you give me a tattoo
that's how much i trust you
i'd let you give me a tattoo
that's how much i love you
give me a tattoo
oh i need you
Track Name: Butch
i guess tonight's just one of those types of nights
where you just want to forget but there's no chance
i know i should be happy and celebrate his life
but i just cant

and it's been a year and i still am down
it'll be another year til i come around
or maybe not, i can't sleep
it's been a year and i still cant sleep
so please save me so i can finally sleep

sometimes i wish you were a ghost so you would haunt me
then i would have more then just a memory
we live in the same room, but it's not the same
used to sleep on the floor to watch the stair case
cause i felt afraid almost every day
the carpet itched my face, but at least i felt safe
oh i felt safe

and it's been a year and i still am down
it'll be another year til i come around
or maybe not, i can't sleep
it's been a year and i still cant sleep
so please save me so i can finally sleep

and oh grandfather i swear that i'll take care of her
oh i'll take care of them both
and i'll be the man of this household oh i'll just just what you told
but without you here this place feels cold
and it makes me mad because you never watched me fall in love
it makes me sad because you left and now i just feel stuck
Track Name: 2 AM
well it's 2 am might as well write a song
looking through old photos and it's been far too long
since i did something that felt like my choice
this feeling of nothing has muffled my voice
and i cant stand it i'm in between
being lost forever and being happy

and all i know is i cant have them both
no no no no no no no

don't need real lights i got these ones on string
i don't need you i got burnt cd's
well it's all that i got when i'm stuck in this room
reminiscing and missing it too
and i cant stand it im in between
being lost forever and being happy

and all i know is i can't have them both
no no no no no
and all i know

is that maybe in another universe id' be free from this godamn curse
and i'd avoid all this dramatic shit because
its so highschool, i want to quit
maybe i should grow up
realize my mistakes
i keep playing the victim
and that's the part of me that i hate
and sitting around, moping around
wont fix anything, i need to figure it out
it's gotta be on my own

but what the hell do i know
what the hell do i know
what the hell do i know
Track Name: Ignore Me All Week
i think i think too much
and i don't do enough
pray to a eight ball god
but he said tough luck
i'm in the other room
playing la vi en rose
and you're fast alseep
and you will never know
and your car smells like pot
and cigarette ash
won't get the return when
your car is just trashed
and you don't talk to your mom
because you're always gone
with you're new best friends
wonder when that'll end
you always go in waves
first it's super tight
then a year or two
and something's not alright

but you can't ignore me all week
then call me when i'm feeling empty
and you always text me
when i feel like i'm moving on
a constant reminder
that every thing that i do
is just wrong

and i just think it's funny how
i think that it's funny now
and i just think it's funny how
i feel differently now

i'm done, hun waiting for a call back
i broke up with you so i guess i don't deserve that
but that doesn't mean that it's not shitty to ignore me
after we make some plans, making me feel just so lonely
but that's alright and i'll be fine
oh i'll be fine
went up to fargo this weekend with my best friends
they make me feel happy and like me as a person
and the music in this shutting down venue
makes me realize that i'll be just fine without you
without you

but that's alright, ignore me all week
then call me when you're feeling empty

just know that i won't be answering
cause i don't got time for anything
except for my family and my friends
and i'm sure as hell not gonna pretend
that you didn't run off with him
and call me after it ended
after my life was getting better
you probably saw that shit on twitter
and i'm not gonna give up my friends
for something that i wanted to end
and i'm sorry i'm being shitty
it's just me projecting

you can ignore me all week
and call me when you're feeling empty
and just go ahead and text me
cause i already fucking moved on
a constant reminder
that every thing that happened was just wrong
Track Name: To All My Friends
well i'm feeling kinda funny
and pretty low on money
but i know that i'm having a good time
right now this kitchen is filled with smoke
and the smell of bleach and hair dye
and it's 2 am in a perkins parking lot
car filled with some hooligan have nots

sneaking my friends out of their houses
having bonfires, being stupid
like taking selfies with your ass in my face
well im asleep and while you're half awake
and double taco bell run kind of nights
with the buds make me feel alright
yea my friends make me feel alive
and you guys have helped me work on myself
more than i could ever ask for
and right now is the time of the weekend
where everybody is walking out the door
and i'll miss you guys til the next weekend rolls up
and i could never thank you guys enough
no i could never thank my friends enough

and i don't need pills to fall asleep
cause my friends give me all i need
it's been awhile since i felt alone
cause only love is what my friends have shown
and these are the times i never wanna forget
the memories we've shared, the places we've been
you got me out of the slumps i'm feeling fixed
and i've loved every moment of it
think of all the places we'll go
you're the best people i know
i'm proud of the person i'm turning out to be
exactly how grandfather raised me
and i guess i quit being upset
and it's all thanks to my best friends
you're my best friends
