Track Name: Stand Still
Pretty clueless desperate and toothless
way beyond not ok
Skin is leather Cardigan sweater
things ain't going his way
and oh how he wanted
to climb back up on it
maybe he will someday

the deeper he got the bigger the hole left to fill
the ax that he's grinding just isn't as sharp as his kill
he'd go on for hours and keep you held against your will
it's as though time decided to simply give up and stand still

He was juicing blending and choosing
he's been forging his way
schedules busy great view of the city
what a productive day
and oh he's been climbing

the deeper he got the bigger the hole left to fill
the ax that he's grinding just isn't as sharp as his kill
he'd go on for hours and keep you held against your will
it's as though time decided to simply give up and stand still
sparkles like diamonds
the man has final say
Track Name: Bombed
Calm
All ok
I never wanted anything
I'm so tiered of waiting
I'm so tiered of waiting
Bombed
Not ok
I've always gone another way
I'm so tiered of waiting
I'm so tiered of waiting
I'm bombed
Not ok
I've always gone another way
I'm so tiered of waiting
I'm so tiered of waiting
you love my love you got my love
You got my love it's the worst
Track Name: Alright
When you grow up you just wait
There's something there that you're going to hate
You'll find out quick you'll find out fast
That the simple things are a pain in the ass
You could try to wait it out
There's no reason
When you get up
You make it nice
Carve it out
You don't get to do it twice
You could try to wait it out
There's no reason
But it's alright
Yes it's alright
Well it's alright
It'll be alright
Track Name: It Ain't Easy
It get's worse
Egyptian curse
Looking for a bone with a mouth full of dirt
I burst all your bubbles
Sorry for your troubles
I'm thinking that you're single cuz you're sucking back the doubles on the rocks
You're sauced, blew your boss
Gave yourself a haircut then you swallowed all the floss
And tossed the towel in
Sorry was i mumblin'
I say relax, get waxed while it's bubblin'

It ain't easy bring me
You know I gotta sift through my own debris
From LA to the NYC
I be double dipping on a contract fee

And just as easy as it sounded they made a hit from shit and everybody gathered 'round it
People took their places
Smiled for a while then they swapped brief cases full of medicine
So they could swindle him
He takes one for the team and two on the chin
That's how she goes
Any way the wind blows
It's how the cookie crumbles when you throw it out the window
