Track Name: The Person I Love/The Person I Hate
I promise you
That I won't leave you
again.

And that I will listen
to the song you sent me.

While getting high,
so high,
alone.

If I am sitting next to you,
on the bench outside
of your apartment building

getting high,
so high,
I wanna die.

And when I find him,
I'm gonna kill him!
I'm gonna sneak up behind him,
and stab him in the back!
and when
he turns
around
he'll see
me smilin'

I can't seem to find my
brain, I'm loosing my mind.

But I know that,
I'm gonna kill you.
I'm gonna enjoy feeling
your blood in my hands,
and when
I feel
the warmth
of it
I'll cry.

I can't wait to meet him.
Track Name: On Death and Dying
I feel like I'll live forever,
I just can't seem to see,
my own death and everything
that's gonna die around me.

How?

I'm gonna live forever,
while everything around me dies,
I'll be enjoying the pleasures of
living the longest life.
Track Name: Breakfast
A great way to start the day!
Track Name: A Blast from the Past
I take back what I said,
although I meant it when I said it.
God I feel so terrible.
Didn't mean to lead you on like this.

I figured I'd be playing the long-con now
if I didn't decide to recognize.
My fading interest in the situation.
I promise that I used to love you too.

Now I feel like the bad guy,
but I was just unsure.

But I know I'm not the bad guy now.
I know enjoyed all those
starry car rides in the dark.
But that is so far past us now.
I promise that I used to love you too.

I take back what I said,
although I meant it when I said it.
God I feel so terrible.
I don't even know why I wrote this down...
Track Name: Bright Futures for all the Kiids
My clothes don't fit me yet.
But I'll grow into them,
when I'm older
I'll see,
A new perspective.

My shoes don't fit me yet.
But I'll grow into them,
when I'm older
We'll talk,
about the things you did to me.

When I'm grown,
I will see.
But for now,
the worlds so pretty.
Track Name: Growing up Makes the World Beautiful
I am wondering about
the kids and growing up.
They're gonna have to see
how awful things can be,
to notice that,
everything's so beautiful.
