A Winter storm warning gets played on the news Stock up your supplies of blankets and booze Everything is grey and I feel like I’m dead But it’s hard to remember that it’s all in my head I’d hate to blame my mood on the weather PICK YOURSELF UP PULL YOURSELF TOGETHER I lose control and accidentally Mentally I’m in a penitentiary The Seasons Keep Changing Spring, summer, autumn I’m good without a doubt But There’s No Explaining Why the snow and the cold have been known to bum me out When the snow starts falling yeah so do my spirits My heart beats slow but it’s so loud you can hear it Joy at any cost, I’ll try any trick I don’t want to call a doctor but maybe I’m sick I know it’s coming but I don’t know the reasons Why am I affected by the changing of seasons Wrap my hand around a bottle of Jameson Take another drink fight off the depression
You never really felt like this was your home, And after all these years we still sit alone, And talk about how everything's hopeless. It doesn't seem so bad when you're out with you're friends, talkin' about the things that you wished that you did, now it all seems hopeless. But you've gotta remember that it's a brand new day, put on you're favorite records and drift away, go back to a place that you can call your own, forget everything that you used to know. All these long nights used to wear me down, burning midnight oil even when no one is around Nothing is hopeless, we don't have to plan our whole lives right now, let's celebrate the little things we get through somehow, nothing is hopeless.
Step One 02:23
Shit's fucked and you really can't change that When you're living in your parent's basement Watching news on your mom's TV Goin on and on and on and on So you rush to the Internet you Know you gotta lotta friends who Need to know what you have to say Goin on and on and on and on But don't stop there you're not quite done In fact you're still Stuck at step one Don't talk Cause talk is cheap What really matters is The action to which you leap So you're pissed at the last generation And the state in which they left the nation Talk about being different Please go on and on and on and on So you say that your gonna be famous That you're gonna be the one to change us Gonna make a difference Keep goin on and on and on and on

I’ve lost track of time since then, Retraced my steps don’t know where to begin, Pick it all up, throw it all away, Because nothing ever seems to stay. We were kids we didn’t care, we had dreams and we weren’t scared we would love we would fight we knew everything was alright I hate the feeling that I get when I’m all alone, I wish you could just be with me and Get off the goddamn phone. This is the last time I drive all night for you This is the last time I care about what you do And for the first time I’m gonna work on me, and try to find myself a little bit of peace.
I wanna catch a cold So I won’t feel like such a slob when I lie in bed all day and watch TV Mom acts like I’m worthless but I don’t think I deserve this I just want to spend some time with me! I need to catch up on my sleep and I need to work on my routine I wanna lose my job so I can catch up on my sleep because I work all night I never go to bed Money’s just a number but my bank account’s a bummer I just wanna spend some time in my own head!
I just want some sleep But the whiskey that I drink Keeps me up all night Thinking about you Another whiskey down Buy me another round I can't go to bed If you're stuck in my head I know that I'll regret But I'm drinking to forget The nights that you've been gone So many nights alone
I’ve never been so uneasy, captivated, and misleading, My heart raced and then it stopped. With her shy smile and a subtle nod I never felt more alive in my whole life, And I hope I don’t have to say goodbye, I stumbled into the clear and starry night It was nice just to have you by my side. I stared up at my ceiling counting the seconds barely breathing I felt your legs wrap around mine, and in that moment everything aligned.
Someday 03:08
She finished all her education but she still couldn’t find an occupation She said this place has nothing left for me, I’m taking my girlfriend, headed to the sea And the girl who hates her family said “the snow and the mountains are calling me” I don’t know where my feet’ll land but I’ll send you a postcard when I find my home Someday, maybe, I’ll be livin lazy Somewhere No One Knows My Name I’m as good as gone I’m leavin home If you were me then you’d be doin the same My friend who thinks his life’s in fragments Said “I gotta leave,” afraid of getting stagnant The one thing I’ll miss when I’m in the city are the pink sunsets that are oh so pretty at home
I’m sick to my stomach, livers bleeding away This cold night air never felt so great The soft city lights never seem to fade away My skin keeps on crawling, what did I do today? “not a thing..” I answer under my breath have another drink play it close to my chest you’ll stare me down, I know I look like death but the night is young, I’m not on my way out yet I never used to feel this way, a sad sorry sap just waiting to decay I never used to feel this way, a sad sorry sap just waiting to decay I never thought I’d go out like this. The devils are in the walls and it seems, they’re gonna stay Eyes are dried up color fades to grey, I haven’t learned my lesson, my head keeps drifting away Down to the place where I used to feel okay Now I’m sick to my stomach, livers bleeding away This cold night air never felt so great The soft city lights never seem to fade away My skin keeps on crawling, what did I do today?

If I could ever feel your lips run soft along mine where would they take me? Before it all fell apart, I've been a corpse for days I woke, and Autumn had passed me by. I never thought that I would be alone now these nights I sit and think about how we changed. And I gotta stop going back to where it all started because my head can't take it and my heart can't stop it. My hands are tied I'll never be the same. These days pass by like strangers, old memories they still linger. These words are empty and fading I won't be sitting here waiting. I've got this sinking feeling, I'm having trouble breathing.
