Track Name: Life Itself Is Just a Terminal Illness
I'm not even mad that I found a guy pissing on my car. He was probably really fucked up anyway. And how about that bus stop get away? How about it? If this was back home I'd be so fucking done. I love the Casbah and fried green tomatoes and singing along to all my favorite bands. I love all of my new friends.
Track Name: We're All Just Gonna Die Anyways
I want to never start my first band so that I would never hold your hand. Then you would never break my heart. I wish that we never did this from start. When did we fuck it all up? When can I suck it all up?
Track Name: 4-Pack of Tall Boys
When I'm coming home and I'm writing songs about you, it doesn't help at all that you're right down the street from me. Remember when I used to sing to you Soco every night. Now all that I have left are two packs of tall boys. I'll drink until I get sad. Two more until I'm mad. The last one to push me too far. I can't wait 'till I don't have to come home.
Track Name: Gatlin - Jericho 941
(It's always gonna be harder for us...)

This is the anthem, of my hometown.
Plenty of drugs, and money to go around.
Enough churches, to hunt you down.
Another day, another pill, another kid in the ground,

And last night, I saw the truth about my generations dying youth.
Theyre all in college, and they all snort coke,
And im beginning to see that its all just a joke.

And it scares me, because I know any day,
Im gonna get the phone call telling me you pulled the trigger.
And just maybe, had I got in the way, I could have found some way to make to want to stay.
It just scares me, because I know any day,
Im gonna get the phone call telling me you found another.
you'll say "Baby, you're beginning to see how much you never meant to me."

I wont let this town,
Get the best of me!
I wont let this town,
Get the best of me!


And it scares me, because I know any day
Im gonna get the phone call telling me you pulled the trigger.
And just maybe, had I got in the way, I could have found some way to make to want to stay.
It just scares me, because I know any day
Im gonna get the phone call telling me you found another.
you'll say "Baby, you're beginning to see how much...
Track Name: Gatlin - Convoluted (Movement 1)
I dont think, we want this as much as we used to
No, rhyme, or reason, to keep up for nothing
We've been used, discarded, prepackaged and out of date
In the end will any of this really matter?

Its so discouraging to see the people you looked up to be forgotten and cast aside for the next big thing
Too many people with too much to say.

Track Name: Gatlin - Conrad Murray (Movement 2)
I thought I saw you today, but then remembered youre dead.
It makes me regret, all the things I never said.
We're just a step off, just out of unison,
Its not suprising we dont end up where we should have been.

There are too many, familiar faces in here. 5 years piled into one goddamned room
There are too many, familiar faces in here. 5 years piled into one goddamned room

(I sang Soco like an anthem but the fact is you cant stay 18 forever)

I remember when you kissed my neck in the hallway with our hands at each others backs.
Im sure by now you're in the back of some other car.
Im working on being alright with that.

Everyone is growing into what we said we'd never be.
Was I a 1 night stand of a lesser degree?

This is what we settled on, never settling anything
This is what we settled on, never settling anything
Tension hung in the air and weighed my body down.
Snakes at my ankles same as the letters on a keyboard.
Tension hung in the air and weighed my body down.
