Track Name: SOUTHERN DISCOMFORT
Some say you die a few times before you live
some say you only get one chance
but I don’t believe it, these scars will wear out
before you go, make sure you make amends
this is the end of everything
this is the end of the road
when will you see we’re eaten up by nothing?
we’re eaten up by the disregard
I’m damned if I do, and damned if I don’t
yeah, that’s just my personality
yeah, that’s one less obstacle for me
progress changes everything for me
just like you should have seen
meaning changes everything for me
Just like you should have seen
And there’ll be hell to pay
I swear these bones will break
let’s fucking go
You can take us, you can break us
but you can’t petrify the strength among us
we’re bleeding, we’re parading
so take the beating
they need to feel it, and I believe it
because I can see the look in your eyes, baby
Discomfort for all
And there’ll be hell to pay
these vultures will tear through skin
(bleed us dry)
So stop pretending everything will be okay
because this makes no sense to me at all
progress changes everything for me
just like you should have seen
meaning changes everything for me
Just like you should have seen
Just like you should
Track Name: ALL MY DAYS
All My Days



these city streets
these lights burn bright
I need a place to rest my head and keep me safe
memories of a time and place
a place that I have grown to hate
memories of all the things I never said
and all the things that you'd expect for me to do
and all the things.

everything I have learned in all my days
all my days
this place is a spectacle
I'd rather be intoxicated with my friends who know my heart
what can we do?
we laugh out loud because we know we don't belong in such a place
one last chance to make amends before I go and wreck it again
losing streaks tarnish everything and broken hearts will lose their meaning
those who can't make it will curl up, instead.
guilt trips don't work on me so please, save your breath
I never would have made it here, you should understand
we went through the worst of it standing hand in hand
so, you thought you'd muzzle me as if you had a chance
guilt trips don't work on me so please, save your breath.
Track Name: USURPER
Usurper



No one can see the future.

No one can see the truth.

But you claim to be the king

And your crown will never last.

Every dog will have it’s day; every needle has it’s haystack, once again.

Nobody ever listens.

Nobody sees the truth

That the point of all of this is splitting at the seams.

No one could scratch the surface; no one could wash it clean.

But you read me like a book and I’m never looking back at who I used to be, ever again.

Desperate times, they call for us to make amends.

But now you’re bleeding from tricksters feeding you bullshit lies.

I can’t welcome this grey, defeating overcast.

But all your efforts and all your meaning just lost their grasp.

Your boundaries, your borders are open for orders.

One more day, one more time, all we need is for you take it away

You say you’re always under pressure, so you can suck away meaning.

You say you never surrender, so you can suck on your pride.

I’m faithless to our own recovery, so you can suck on that.

So when they come to question, when they come to question us,

We’ll say that that’s who we are.

So let’s dance.

Three cheers to the Indiana boys.
Track Name: NO TOOTH GRIN
Two a.m. and I'm gone.

These dogs have a taste for my insides.

The bailer is lying in a pool of blood

And I’m fifteen feet from freedom.

And when I get there. All I know is that I’m drinking.

It’s been a long time since I've had a shot of whiskey.

Let’s celebrate, let’s celebrate ourselves.

Let’s celebrate, let’s celebrate tonight.

You set them up, I’ll knock them down.

And this is why we laugh out loud.

From all the consequences disregarded.

I feel poisoned, this place is a sight

To be darkened by tending the light.

Give me something, just something of substance.

I feel a lump in my throat.

Is this the end of the highway?

I feel a lump in my throat.

Just let it go.

I’d love to wake up wide eyed

Just walk away from me tonight.
Track Name: BEER GUT
now i've got blood in my alcohol stream

and we're all in for a night.

everything was going great until you stood up

now the fists are gonna fly.

this kiss won't feel wrong it's just the way i feel tonight.
this regret won't last much longer.

much longer than we'd like.

and then she said, you god damn boy, you're so fucking dirty.

(and I love it)

stand up to me and fight.
now everyone. pick your sides and place your bets.
we bleed. this is the worst part. Fuck yeah.

take me to jail. see if I care, this drunk tank knows me well.
Track Name: DEMONS
I'm coming out with a spring in my step and I cannot believe my eyes.

This town has gone to shit and everywhere I look all I see are grey skies.

Nothing can ever stay the same

Nothing can every stay the same but we all hold onto it just like it will.

This is where I fall apart.

Everything you love you'll lose and everything you need we'll leave.

Drink like demons and puke for our sins; for all our sins.

Tonight is the night is we take back what once was ours.
Track Name: MOTIVATION
Now I find myself just running scared among the wreckage


And there’s blood upon the ground.

Now I’m coming out with everything I have to say

If it makes you insecure, just shake it off.

My best defense is your best offense

We’re still kicking around, still kicking around our fate.

You left me here

You just left me hanging

While you ran away

I’m not fucking around.

You better get with the picture.
I can see the look in your eye
You’ve got a lot to explain.

I’m not fucking around.

All we need, and all you need

Is motivation and second chances

This will destroy you

I can’t believe this

All we need, and all you need

Is motivation and second chances
Track Name: MISSION FAILURE
The more you know, the more you shake
The less we care, the more we take
the more we take, the less we grow
The more you know, the more you don’t
Notice your accomplishments
Stop rehearsing every little thing
We’ll see the suffering
Now I’m nothing more than a name that somebody gave me
Now I’m nothing like the way that my mother raised me
They’ll take you in and make you sorry
Never turn your head away from this or you’ll bare the sickness
Conscience fading
CONSCIOUS FADING
Now I know nothing more than I did then
I guess I should know better than to let it live
We’ll see the suffering
We’ll take the time to breathe
Mission failure
We’ve seen the suffering
So reap the seeds you want to sew
So make your mark, so make your home
The more we take, the less we grow
So stake your rock, so claim your role
