Track Name: Surface
I wanna surface but it's not working out
I wanna surface but it's not working out
I wanna surface but it's not working out
But this wave keeps holding me

I wanna surface but it's not working out
I wanna surface but it's not working out
I wanna surface but it's not working out
But this wave keeps holding me

I try to come up for air but this wave keeps holding me down
I'm running out of breath as my face hits the ground

I wanna surface but it's not working out
I wanna surface but it's not working out
I wanna surface but it's not working out
But this wave keeps holding me

I wanna surface but it's not working out
I wanna surface but it's not working out
I wanna surface but it's not working out

I try to come up for air but this wave keeps holding me down
I'm running out of breath as my face hits the ground

I wanna surface but its not working out!
I wanna surface but its not working out!
I wanna surface but its not working out!
but this wave keeps holding me down
Track Name: Midlife Crisis (at 21)
Everyone around me seems to have it all, all figured out.
Everyone but me seems to know exactly what the fuck they're talking about

They said these years were supposed to be the best, but instead i'm stuck here paying my debt.
They said these years were supposed to be the best, but instead i'm a fucking mess

Everyone around me seems to have some fucking plan,
I can barely get by Via bottle in my hand
at the rate I'm going I'll be dead by 23
The walls are closing why's this happening to me?

Midlife crisis, midlife crisis, midlife crisis at 21
Midlife crisis, midlife crisis, midlife crisis at 21
Midlife crisis, midlife crisis, midlife crisis at 21

too fucking broke, too fucking spent, too fucking worried about paying the rent
Too fucking stressed, I dont need this, feels like my hearts about to leave my chest

Everyone around me seems to have some fucking plan, I can barely get by via bottle in my hand
At the rate I'm going I'll be dead by 23
The walls are closing whys this happening to me?

Midlife crisis, midlife crisis, midlife crisis at 21
Midlife crisis, midlife crisis, midlife crisis at 21
Midlife crisis, midlife crisis, midlife crisis at 21

Don't think I'll make it to 23
Don't think I'll make it to 23
Don't think I'll make it to 23
Don't think I'll make it to 23
Track Name: The Drunkest I've Ever Been
I cant remember a time when I didn't quite feel like dying,
getting sick of looking at my life through these tired eyes

Another night has come and gone where I cant find my way to sleep, Cant stand the sight of my broken dreams

I'm losing my mind, losing my time, losing sleep
I'm losing touch, I'm losing grip, I'm losing me

I drink myself to sleep 7 nights a week
And everyday's the same, I'm picking myself off the floor

These years took the best of me (x4)

Another night has come and gone where I cant find my way to sleep, Cant stand the sight of my broken dreams

I'm losing my mind, losing my time, losing sleep
I'm losing touch, I'm losing grip, I'm losing me

I think, I think, I think I'm losing my mind
I think, I think, I think that I'll be fine

I drink myself to sleep 7 nights a week
And everyday's the same, I'm picking myself off the floor!
Track Name: 373 Crystal Lake Rd. (Big Bear Song)
Cold feet when you're wasted
Body temperature is plummeting
Pass the Jameson, I'm Freezing!
High altitude, I'm Wheezing!

And I can't tell if I'm wasted, or what I took to get like this
you're having trouble breathing, I'm having trouble seeing
I can't tell if I'm wasted, or what I took to get like this
I'm having trouble breathing,you're having trouble seeing

Cold feet when you're wasted
Body temperature is plummeting
Pass the Jameson, I'm Freezing!
High altitude, I'm Wheezing!

And I can't tell if I'm wasted, or what I took to get like this
I'm having trouble breathing, you're having trouble seeing
And I can't tell if I'm wasted, or what I took to get like this
I'm having trouble breathing,you're having trouble seeing

Don't step on the Ice, We're gonna have a whiskey party tonight!
Track Name: Tattoo My Brain
Wish I could speak my mind, But I've already lost it
Somewhere in the closet, somewhere in a closet

Tattoo my brain with memories of better days
Wish you would change your ways

You're not that innocent, you're not the one
You're not that innocent, You're just for fun

Go tattoo my brain,With memories of better days

Tattoo my, tattoo my, Tattoo my brain x 4
Track Name: Love Song in Broken English
You're the reason I'm an alcoholic, You're the reason why I cannot leave this place
And when you're near i feel so claustorphobic, this paranoia makes me want to lose my mind.

This time you better think about all the pain that you caused
This time I think I'm better off without you, Cant spend another day like this.

You're the reason why I cannot plan shit, you're the reason why I lie, It makes me sick.
You fuck me up you screw my daily life, wish it would work but you know this isn't right

This time you better think about all the pain that you caused,
This time I think i'm better off without you, can't spend another day like this.

You're the reason I'm an alcoholic!
I drank so much, ya know, I can't recall it! (x2)
