Track Name: Do Without It
What do you do when you're drunk and alone? Six thirty AM and you're still wide awake, you've taken the final sip from the last bottle. You finally realize you've made a mistake. Wake up in the morning hung over as fuck. You open your lips but there's nothing to say. You go to inhale, but the air tastes like poising. Wishing like hell it would just go away.

So cry your eyes out, cause nothing's gonna change. There's nothing you can do about it. Keep on living, we're never gonna age. You'll just have to do without it.

They say someday you'll find the right person for you. They lie and they lie to make you feel secure. But you know there's no "god" and there's no fucking miracle could save you from this hell. What makes them so fucking sure that you'll be fine? Lie and tell me everything's alright. "You'll be fine." Lie and tell me "Everything's alright."

Cry your eyes out, cause nothing's gonna change. There's nothing you can do about it. Keep on living, we're never gonna age. You'll just have to do without it.
Track Name: Vienna
Song by Billy Joel. Listen to his version. It's better.
Track Name: Memorize The Sky
I watch the stars through my telescope. I think I've memorized the sky. They look so far away now.

You never thought that I'd be one of them. I was cold and all alone. Look how far I've come Dad.

I'll be famous. Everyone will know my name. Who gives a fuck who they are, what they've done, what they may or may not do? Cause in this world, just look out for number one. Nothing else should matter.

I never thought I would be one of them. I never thought I could be one of them. My heroes stood so tall before me.

You said that I would have to grow up someday. You said that I could never live life this way. Now everybody knows my name. Look how far I've come Dad.
Track Name: Skin
I've got nothing to show, but an arrogant front, for the twenty one years I've spent realizing that I'm not even comfortable in my own skin. Save my spirit please, or put it out of its misery.

I've got nothing to prove short of everything I still need to prove to myself. No, I don't need or want your help, just don't stand in my way. Put ink to the page as I spill my guts. I try to break free, but I'm stuck in a rut.

Give me something to believe in because I'm really sick and tired of trying to convince myself I can make it on my own.

Save my spirit please, or put it out of its misery.
Track Name: Cages
After work, I took the Mass Pike from Westfield to Allston. Around 12:30, it was right in the middle of the day. I spent five dollars and ten cents on tolls, ten dollars on gas, and that was only one way. But I got to see my friends. I got to go play with my band. All that was missing was the hope that this would never have to end.

But unfortunately, life comes first and when we try, try, try the same way, then we still fail. But I believe that someday, we can find another way to live the way we'd like. I believe it.

It's what I'm waiting for. It's what I'm counting on. We've been waiting, waiting, waiting for our rocket to come.

No more cages for me. This is self-liberation, I declare myself free.
