it begins and ends with her

Her
Only her
Only loves her
She only loves her
She only loves herself
Only loves herself
Loves herself
Herself
Her

hot mess

she's at the bar again cigarette lit in her hand
she's drinking herself into oblivion every god damn night
I guess some things are too hard to face sober
she's downing those milly lites
she's trying to erase the past from her mind

isn't it better, baby, to just face it
rather than trying to forget who you are?
baby I know its hard

there she is at the bar again singing the same songs
like she did all the nights before and it never gets old
she's roping some poor bastard in
she needs his attention
ointment for her bruised ego
the pain subsides but the mark still shows
isn't it better, baby, to just face it
rather than trying to forget who you are?
baby I know its hard

she sold her soul for a plastic life
now she drinks herself to death
trying to fill what's left inside
 
she's hiding behind lies on top of lies
she's running out of people who believe her stories
one crack in her armor and now she's been exposed
she's just an insecure girl lashing out at the world
chewed up but not spit out
she sold her soul for a plastic life
now she drinks herself to death
trying to fill what's left inside

goodbye, friend

hey you,
when did you lose control?
is it that important to you
that you abandon your ideals?
it took me all these years
and I finally feel
it's time to let go

goodbye, friend
it was fun while it lasted
I stuck around for as long as i can
I hope there's no hard feelings
but everything good comes to an end
so goodbye, friend
I can't say I don't have any regrets
and I sure as shit can't say
that I have always been the best
but I guess I'm not compatible
with version 6.0
I preferred the original
goodbye, friend
it was fun while it lasted
I stuck around for as long as i can
I hope there's no hard feelings
but everything good comes to an end
so goodbye, friend

too many phases
I can't keep up
too many changes
I've had enough
I followed you through thick and thin
I've swallowed my pride, I swear
for the very last time

so goodbye, friend
it was fun while it lasted
I stuck around for as long as i can
I hope there's no hard feelings
but everything good comes to an end
so goodbye, friend
it was fun while it lasted
I stuck around for as long as i can
I hope there's no hard feelings
but everything good comes to an end
so goodbye, friend

we shoulda taken that left turn at albuquerque

we wanted a good time
a little poison for our minds
now everything seems to be a lie
our world magnified
picking apart our own lives
self loathing is a son of a bitch
dropped our defenses now all is lost
succumbed to our invading thoughts
we did this to ourselves
and nobody can help
right next to each other yet were still miles apart
and its just so damn hard to face yourself
sometimes reflections aren't pretty
some doors should stay locked
a moment of clarity
we were doomed at take off

I think we took a wrong turn
this place doesn't look familiar
I don't think god can save us
no, god won't save us this time
look in our eyes and you could tell
we took a nose-dive into hell
I don't think god can save us
no god wont save us this time
don't worry this is fine
we do this sort of thing all the
time is moving so slow and
I feel like I am losing my mind
we can watch reality melt away
and let our nightmares take its place
where we will be the witch
and light the fire to our own stake
I think we took a wrong turn
this place doesn't look familiar
I don't think god can save us
no, god won't save us this time
look in our eyes and you could tell
we took a nose-dive into hell
I don't think god can save us
no, god won't save us this time

the hardest stuff on earth

I have that feeling in my gut
you must have reared your ugly head
there's no place for you here so move along
and hide back in the bomb shed
you built for yourself where
no one can tell you you're wrong
'cause you're never wrong
you've isolated yourself from burning every bridge you've crossed
and its so easy to look down on us when we have to swim across
 to see who you really are
I liked the view better from afar
are you tired of playing the victim?
how long can this go on?
your story is full of inconsistencies
and is falling apart at the seams
I'm finding flaws in the fiction you read
this self righteous path is only making you worse
and if no one has told you, let me be the first
this self righteous path is only making you worse
and if no one has told you, let me be the first
your heart's made from
the hardest stuff on earth
