1. STRAIGHT JACKET

I wear a 36 long, white is my color
A little tight in the shoulder
But you know, it still fit me good
I wear a 36 long, white is my color
A little tight in the shoulder
But you know, it still fit me good

Anyone can see we're a perfect match
An innocent boy and a psychopath
A week's worth of dating and you talk about moving in
(Talk about moving too fast)
My mom disapproved and my friends would say
To break the girl's heart but I'm too afraid
Her clickbait body was a tractor beam
She was a Tesla Model S with the ludicrous speed
The sex was good but we always fight
I'd try to leave your sorry ass but end up spending the night
Your sweetness, my weakness, you're mean though ingenious
Nothing can come between us (Man, have you seen us?)

I've lost it, you're toxic, I botched this, I'm nauseous
Man, I gotta be

Out of my mind, be going crazy
'Cause it doesn't faze me
Yeah, the way you treat me so bad
I must be out of my brain
Hallucinating
Well, it doesn't faze me
Yeah, the way you treat me so bad
I must be out of my mind

Free at last, I'm free at last
Something I'll never say is "I'm free at last"
She ain't around so I can vent and get it off my chest
(So here we go, three, two, one)
And you're supercali-pessimistic-expiali-narcissistic
You were Mary Poppins, you'd be soon be going out of business
God as my witness, you got a Honda Civic
'Cause you're backseat driving my life

I just wanna sleep my life away
I must be

Out of my mind, be going crazy
'Cause it doesn't faze me
Yeah, the way you treat me so bad
I must be out of my brain
Hallucinating
Well, it doesn't faze me
Yeah, the way you treat me so bad
Bad, bad, bad, bad, bad, bad, bad, bad

I'm freaking out, I'm panic attacking
Yeah, I mentally had it, now my living room's padded
I'm a sadist, I'm addicted to this heroin
You're Tonya Harding and I'm your Nancy Kerrigan
Like Lloyd Braun, I just wanted serenity
But you had to go testing me, gave me suicide tendencies
Your little games, your little, little games
You tricked me into staying, your playing is getting lame
From touching your sweet things to tracking your calls
Go from smacking your ass to punching holes in the walls
Go from sending me fire nudes to eyeing up other dudes
From picking a favorite song to playlisting break up tunes
Started so high, now I can hardly breathe
Go from weak in the knees to being too weak I can't leave
You called it, it's all my fault, this I know
Guess I'm better off dead inside than being alone

I just wanna sleep my life away
Oh!

I must be out of my mind, be going crazy
'Cause it doesn't faze me
Yeah, the way you treat me so bad
I must be out of my brain
Hallucinating
Well, it doesn't faze me
Yeah, the way you treat me so bad
I must be out of my mind

Yeah, yeah, oh
I must be out of my mind

And you're supercali-pessimistic-expiali-narcissistic
You were Mary Poppins, you'd be soon be going out of business

Yeah, oh, bad, bad, bad, bad, bad, bad, bad, bad, bad


2. RX

Wake up to a cloudy day
Dark rolls in and it starts to rain
Staring out to the cage-like walls
Time goes by and the shadows crawl
Crushin' candy crushin' pills
Got no job, mom pays my bills
Textin' ex's get my fill
Sweatin' bullets, Netflix-chills
World's out there singin' the blues
Twenty more dead on the evening news
Think to myself "really, what's the use?"
I'm just like you, I was born to lose

Why oh why can't you just fix me?
When all I want's to feel numb
But the medication's all gone
Why oh why does God hate me?
When all I want's to get high
And forget this so-called life

I am so frickin' bored
Nothin' to do today
I guess I'll sit around and medicate (medicate)
I am so frickin' bored
Nothing to do today
I guess I'll sit around and medicate (medicate)

Can't wait to feel better than I ever will
Attack that shit like a kid on Benadryl
Chase it down with a hopeful smile
Hate myself, if I can go for miles
They say family's all you need
Someone to trust can help you breathe
Inhale that drug, but you start to choke
You follow the outs of an inside joke

Why oh why can't you just fix me?
When all I want's to feel numb
But the medication's all gone
Why oh why does God hate me?
Cause I've seen enough of it, heard enough of it, felt enough of it
Had enough of it!

I am so frickin' bored
Nothing to do today
I guess I'll sit around and medicate (medicate)
I am so frickin' bored
Nothing to do today
I guess I'll sit around and medicate

Medicate
Medicate
Medicate
Medicate

Superman is a hero
But only when his mind is clear though
He needs that fix like the rest of us
So he's got no fear when he saves that bus
All the stars in the Hollywood Hills
Snapchat live while they pop them pills
All those flavors of the rainbow
Too bad that shit don't work though

Your friends are high right now
Your parents are high right now
That hot chick's high right now
That cop is high right now
The president's high right now
Your priest is high right now
Everyone's high as fuck right now
And no one's ever coming down

I am so frickin' bored
Nothing to do today
I guess I'll sit around and medicate (medicate)
I am so frickin' bored
Nothing to do today
I guess I'll sit around and medicate

Medicate
Medicate
Medicate
Medicate

I medicate


3. ECHOES

You were there, now you're gone
Big mistake, how do I move on?
Love was wasted and it's tainted now
But it's still there, fading in and out
We were so much better then
Catch yourself saying, "remember way back when?"
Perfect were the days spent staying out
Heaven was ours to paint, you were so much fun

So why is the world so cold?
How did you get so cold?

Say it once, say it twice
Over and over in my mind
What went wrong with my life?
It echoes, echoes
It echoes in my mind
Say it once, say it twice
Over and over in my mind
What went wrong? Felt so right
It echoes, echoes
It echoes in my mind

(It echoes, echoes)
(It echoes, echoes)

When did it all go completely sideways?
Yeah, it's so easy in hindsight to say
But what if our past is our future's clue?
Cause I don't wanna live if I can't be with you

Why is the world so cold?
How did we get so cold?

Say it once, say it twice
Over and over in my mind
What went wrong with my life?
It echoes, echoes
It echoes in my mind
Say it once, say it twice
Over and over in my mind
What went wrong? Felt so right
It echoes, echoes
It echoes in my mind

Like a bridge we keep burning forever
I thought we were dying together
I must move on if I want to get better
But you know I'll still love you forever, ever, ever

Say it once, say it twice
Over and over in my mind
What went wrong with my life?
It echoes, echoes
It echoes in my mind
Say it once, say it twice
Over and over in my mind
What went wrong? Felt so right
It echoes, echoes
It echoes in my mind

(It echoes, echoes)
(It echoes, echoes)
(It echoes, echoes)
It echoes in my mind
(It echoes, echoes)
It echoes in my mind


4. WAKE UP CALL

She's checkin' out
She's checkin' out on me

Not long ago you were laying right here
And the blue light flickered, love everywhere
Now you're checkin' out
And I'm missin' you, the smell of cigarettes
Is takin' over for the pain in my chest
And you're checkin' out

This old hotel will never be home
'Cause you are home to me

This is my wake up call, I slept through it
Going through life, hypnotic
Come home, ho-o-ome, come home, ho-o-ome
These four walls is where I live
With the ghost of you is all I get
Come home, ho-o-ome, come home, ho-o-ome

This old hotel will never be home
'Cause you are home to me

This worn out rug has seen its day
These old walls are peeling away
Just like us, and I'm freakin' out
The TV's broke, there's nothin' on
Just memories of us that'll soon be gone
And I'm freakin' out

This old hotel will never be home
'Cause you are home to me

This is my wake up call I slept through it
Going through life, hypnotic
Come home, ho-o-ome, come home, ho-o-ome
These four walls is where I live
With the ghost of you is all I get
Come home, ho-o-ome, come home, ho-o-ome

This old hotel will never be home
'Cause you are home to me

It's funny how our love fucks me like it always does
It's funny now your gone I'm seeing how it really was
I don't wanna wake up, I've really had enough
I don't wanna wake up, still feeling in love

She's checkin' out
She's checkin' out

This is my wake up call I slept through it
Going through life, hypnotic
Come home, ho-o-ome, come home, ho-o-ome
These four walls is where I live
With the ghost of you is all I get
Come home, ho-o-ome, come home, ho-o-ome

This old hotel will never be home
'Cause you are home to me


5. PCH

PCH is where we lay our heads
The ocean beach is where our feet will land
It's 3 a.m., we're out here on our own
So make me home, take me home
The L.A. scene is like a field of dreams
And this field of dreams is made for you and me
It's 4 a.m., we're out here on our own
So take me home, just take me home, home

I feel strange, I feel strange
Every time that I'm away from you
No, it don't feel right, homesick for the city lights
I feel strange, so strange
Every time that I'm away from you
When the rest of the world is sleeping
We're up all night

PCH is where we race too fast
'Cause the human race was never meant to last
It's 5 a.m., we'll make it on our own
We're going home, girl, we're going home, home

I feel strange, I feel strange
Every time that I'm away from you
No, it don't feel right, homesick for the city lights
I feel strange, so strange
Every time that I'm away from you
When the rest of the world is sleeping
We're up all night

I feel strange, I feel strange
Every time that I'm away from you
No, it don't feel right, homesick for the city lights
I feel strange, so strange
Every time that I'm away from you
When the rest of the world is sleeping
We're up all night
We're up all night

I feel strange, I feel strange
Every time that I'm away from you
No, it don't feel right, homesick for the city lights
I feel strange, so strange
Every time that I'm away from you
When the rest of the world is sleeping
We're up all night


6. G.O.A.T.

Never settle for less than gold
You're the best that the world will know
No one'd ever guess how far you'd go
You're the greatest, the greatest that ever was

You're a star, you really are
You're the one shining bright from all the rest in the dark
A champion with nerves of stone
You trained for this since the day you were born
Full of pain, full of sweat, full of tears
But never giving up or giving into the fear
A quick breath for the ones you love
Props to the gods as they watch from above
Your enemies line up for miles
You crush them all with your hope and a smile
When you win, put your fists in the air
Your fans cheer you on while your victims stare

So go all the way
And they will scream your name

You never settle for less than gold
You're the best that the world will know
No one'd ever guess how far you'd go
You're the greatest, the greatest that ever was
You never quit till the finish line
You always win with your head held high
Your legend will never die
You're the greatest, the greatest that ever was
Ever was, ever was
Ever was, ever was
Ever was, ever was
You're the greatest, the greatest that ever was

Throwing no punches, throwing no shade
The best of the best don't need no fame
Full of love, full of heart, full of soul
Never get weary, never grow old
Now is the time when your heroes call
The faces appear on your bedroom walls
Staring back as you're in the zone
Reminding you that you're not alone

Give it up, give it up they'll say
But not today, no, not today

You never settle for less than gold
You're the best that the world will know
No one'd ever guess how far you'd go
You're the greatest, the greatest that ever was
You never quit till the finish line
You always win with your head held high
Your legend will never die
You're the greatest, the greatest that ever was
Ever was, ever was
Ever was, ever was
Ever was, ever was
You're the greatest, the greatest that ever was

Find your strength, feel alive
Find your power deep inside
Speak the truth, never lie
Live forever, never die
Be the greatest, the greatest of all time

You never settle for less than gold
You're the best that the world will know
No one'd ever guess how far you'd go
You're the greatest, the greatest that ever was
You never quit till the finish line
You always win with your head held high
Your legend will never die
You're the greatest, the greatest that ever was
Ever was, ever was
Ever was, ever was
Ever was, ever was
You're the greatest, the greatest that ever was
Ever was, ever was
Ever was, ever was
Ever was, ever was
Hey!

You never quit till the finish line
You always win with your head held high
Your legend will never die
You're the greatest, the greatest that ever was


7. LONER

I guess I'm misunderstood
I guess I probably should
Try and be more friendly
And like you
I wish I wasn't so shy
I'm just the weirder type
'Cause you don't know
How life goes for me

Never thought I'd be the kind
To want you to see my other side

No, I'm not afraid to stand up and say
I'm a loner, could be cooler, but that's okay
Don't need lots of friends who think I'm funny when
The ones I have think I'm God and don't have to pretend
None of it matters anyways
I'm a loner and that's okay

What's the point of dressing nice
I don't really even have a life
So easy just to be on my own, my own
I won't bother to ask you out
'Cause you won't get what I'm all about
'Cause I'm just fine, just spend my time at home, at home

Never thought I'd be the kind
To want you to see my other side

No, I'm not afraid to stand up and say
I'm a loner, could be cooler, but that's okay
Don't need lots of friends who think I'm funny when
The ones I have think I'm God and don't have to pretend
None of it matters anyways
I'm a loner and that's okay

No, I'm not afraid to stand up and say
I'm a loner, could be cooler, but that's okay
Don't need lots of friends who think I'm funny when
The ones I have think I'm God and don't have to pretend

Now I'm not a waste and it's not too late
To look at yourself and just appreciate
You are who you are, we all try too hard
Let's give it up, do what we want and we will own the cards
None of it matters anyways
We're all loners and that's okay

None of it matters anyways
I'm a loner and that's okay


8. TIME MACHINE

They say the past is gone forever
So how come I can never get over it
The ocean steals our steps away
Our tears get lost in the rain
Just knowing that

We shone like the stars
Exploded over time
You can't pick the pieces up
That you can never find

I wish I had a time machine
It'd still be you and me
Be you and me
I'd laugh and breathe
If I had a time machine
I'd do anything
To [?]

Nothing heals me like the pain
Of knowing you could be okay without me now
If I'd go back, would you meet me there?
Do you still love me? Do you still care?
You break me down

We shone like the stars exploded over time
In the end the memories are all that's left behind

I wish I had a time machine
It'd still be you and me
Be you and me
I'd laugh and breathe
If I had a time machine
I'd do anything
To [?]

We shone like the stars
Exploded over time
We burned our broken hearts
And no matter how we try
We can't pick the pieces up
That we can never find
Life is so much better
With you and me together

I wish I had a time machine
It'd still be you and me
Be you and me
I'd laugh and breathe
If I had a time machine
I'd do anything
To [?]

Life is so much better with you and me together
But it's gone, mmm but it's gone
Life is so much better with you and me together
But it's gone, mmm but it's gone


9. GLASS JAW

Swinging fast, you attack, slow down my defense
All a blur, I was sure this is how it ends
Hit the mat on my back, that was it for me
Stinging sweat, out of breath, begging for relief
Wish I knew you were through, I'd protect myself
But now I'm down, bleeding out, begging for the bell
You bob and weave, lie and cheat to get me in the ring
In defeat I can see clearly everything

You hit me in the glass jaw
I never saw the hit at all
You hit me in the glass jaw
Whoa, whoa

You smashed me in a million pieces
I'm broken and beaten, please just leave me alone
You smashed me in a million pieces
I know you don't mean this, please just leave me alone

I'm shattered
You'd never put me back together
I'm shattered
You'd never gonna get me back

What you did could've been the very best for me
But instead in the end it was the worst thing
You could see I was weak, yeah, I should have known
But I was wrong, you were gone, now I'm all alone

You hit me in the glass jaw
I never saw the hit at all
You hit me in the glass jaw
Whoa, whoa

You smashed me in a million pieces
I'm broken and beaten, please just leave me alone
You smashed me in a million pieces
I know you don't mean this, please just leave me alone

I'm shattered
You'd never put me back together
I'm shattered
You'd never gonna get me back

Love was not my friend
Knocked me down again

The battle's done, bell is rung, yeah, you beat me good
I could probably hug it out like a fighter should
But instead I use my head and I walk away
So in the end I can stand to fight another day

You smashed me in a million pieces
I'm broken and beaten, please just leave me alone
You smashed me in a million pieces
You know I don't need this, please just leave me

You smashed me in a million pieces
I'm broken and beaten, please just leave me alone
You smashed me in a million pieces
I know you don't need this, please just leave me alone

I'm shattered
You'd never put me back together
I'm shattered
You'd never gonna get me back
I'm shattered
You'd never put me back together
I'm shattered
You'd never gonna get me back


10. PO MOUTH

How come every time we want to go out
You get po mouth, when we go out
How come every time we want to go out
You get po mouth, when we go out

Your lack of funds is like the LA drought
You opened up your wallet and a moth flew out
Make excuses 'bout being in debt
You could get a job but buy clothes instead
You pick a nice place for us to dine
You order nothing but eat half of mine
Could try to find a way to pay off student loans
But you hit the liquor store on the way home

Wanna burn it down, have a sick-ass time
You try your credit card and it says declined
Ain't got cash but you're trying your luck
ATM says you as broke as fuck

How come every time we want to go out
You get po mouth, when we go out
How come every time we want to go out
You get po mouth, when we go out

H&R Block fucked up your taxes
Trump University cancelled your classes
You're upset 'cause your grandma died
Supposed to leave you money but the old bag lied
Debt collector's gonna kick your ass
You bought a new car but I'm paying for gas
You wrote an IOU to your 401(k)
But, hey, broke tomorrow, rich today

Wanna burn it down, have a sick-ass time
You try your credit card and it says declined
Ain't got cash but you're trying your luck
ATM says you as broke as fuck

How come every time we want to go out
You get po mouth, when we go out
How come every time we want to go out
You get po mouth, when we go out

Get rich or die trying
No bitching, complaining, and whining, and crying
We all have one friend that's broke as hell
But you give him twenty bucks and you wish him well

'Cause you love him and that's what friends are for
They're really good people and they deserve more
And it's easier than saying no and starting a fight
And sound condescending 'cause you know so much about life
And if there's one thing that my mom taught me
Is shit costs money and life ain't free

Wanna burn it down, have a sick-ass time
You try your credit card and it says declined
Ain't got cash but you're trying your luck
ATM says you as broke as fuck

How come every time we want to go out
You get po mouth, when we go out
How come every time we want to go out
You get po mouth, when we go out

(Po mouth, po mouth)
(Every time we go out, go out)
(Po mouth, po mouth)
(Every time we go out, go out)


11. WICKED GAME

The world was on fire and no one could save me but you
It's strange what desire will make foolish people do
I never dreamed that I'd meet somebody like you
And I never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you

No, I don't want to fall in love
No, I don't want to fall in love
With you

What a wicked game you played to make me feel this way
What a wicked thing to do, to let me dream of you
What a wicked thing to say, you never felt this way
What a wicked thing to do, to make me dream of you

And I don't wanna fall in love
No, I don't wanna fall in love
With you

The world was on fire and no one could save me but you
It's strange what desire will make foolish people do
I never dreamed that I'd love somebody like you
And I never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you

No, I don't wanna fall in love
No, I don't wanna fall in love
With you (This girl is only gonna break your heart)
No, I... (This girl is only gonna break your heart)

Nobody loves no one
