Track Name: Blockin Out The Haters
Ain't got no time for it,
Say what you want about me.
Track Name: Alternator Deviator
Water a broken vase,
All in her own malaise.
Alternator!
Deviator!
Muscle your way to grace.

Always and in good taste,
Never to procreate.
Alternator!
Deviator!
Muscle your way to grace.

Thought we were made the same,
I cannot join your game.
Alternator!
Deviator!
Muscle your way to grace.
Track Name: Friendship/Bloodbath
This is a friendship bloodbath
This is a handshake for a slap
This me trying to love you

This is a point of contact
This a sharp pat on the back
This is an invitation to try and to love me back

And I’ll do right by you
Yeah I’ll forgive you
I’ll forgive myself
I can be kind to you
But I can’t
When you don’t let me in

This is where all shit goes south
This is where I sit full of doubt
This is where people go crazy

This is my excuse recoil
This a cog in something more
This is me teasing and dreaming meeting my maker

And I’ll do right by you
Yeah I’ll forgive you
I’ll forgive myself
I can be kind to you
But I can’t
When you don’t let me in
Track Name: I Cannot Get Close Enough To You
I take half of what I want
Splash it on the pavement,
Let it burn up with the sun.
It's so easy to turn your back on what you want
Just fix yourself a hot plate
And forget about everyone.

But goddamn you
I can't get close enough to you
I cannot get close enough to you
There's no way, walking with a grin all over your face
Trying not to bend, trying to break
Can't get over you.

Remove the line of best fit
You just get a line and some others drawn next to it.
The center, just like a split lip
Spit up on the mouth of the pavement
Won't hold and won't quit.

Goddamn you I can't get
Close enough to you
I cannot get close enough to you
There's no way, walking with a grin all over your face
Trying not to bend, trying to break
Can't get over you.
