Track Name: Jerk
My stomachs aching, I feel bad
I’ll leave cause I have to soon
Break the silence with a look
Can I please sleep in your room?

Insomniac and paranoid
I love the way you think
A pretty dress as you suggest
I should love me too

The colors get so grey at night
I never thought used to
Staggered my way through this fight
I never thought I'd have to

The walk home, the lonely one
I swear I’m not the only one
Washed up on the shore
On the wrong side of the ocean

(Chorus)
Arsehole
I feel like such a jerk
Step aside my lonely life
I don’t think this will work
I’m toxic
I’m Sorry
I did the best I could
But not the best I should

Is this real? For goodness sake are
Should we never not be taking
The killing fields grass is greener
Only for the victors side

I knew that they should have tried
I knew that they should have tried
Black eye bloodied lip
But it’s my mind that keeps me sick

(Chorus)
Arsehole
I feel like such a jerk
Step aside my lonely life
I don’t think this will work
I’m toxic
I’m Sorry
I did the best I could
But not the best I should

(Br)
Figure of speech
A metaphor
To stop the metaphorical meteor

A scumbag a jerk
A life with hurt
I'm the only one I'm thinking of

I’m lost in conversation
Whilst trying not to cry
I hope for both of us to get out alive

I miss you
Possibly love
You’re the only one I’m thinking of/Despite all my better judgment

(Chorus)
Arsehole
I feel like such a jerk
Step aside my lonely life
I don’t think this will work
I’m toxic
I’m Sorry
I did the best I could
But I’m just not that good

Track Name: Pot Glasses Thrown Across The Country
Pot glasses thrown across the country
Built on my negativity
Streets smell of teenage remorse
12 years old and taught to riot

What it means is the future’s parents
Lose the faith in this vicious cycle
So they should but they don’t learn
That the stench of tires burning

Is the smell of a self-loathing nightmare?
No one in this picture’s happy
And the outcast on the sidelines
Quotes, quotes from an Orwell novel

One by one they’re sinking slowly
The markets booming to the tune
Of an overrated system that they rejoice
As the finest that there is
…my god

The alcohol's been flavored
As bitter turns to sweet
Children decapitated
In broad daylight on the streets

Sexism celebrated
Like 1943
What have we created?
I’ve got to flea this town

Pot glasses thrown across the country

The scotch goes down like soft drink
To the kids that have been abused
Post apocalyptic
Mob mentality

Where the violence flows like water
Gardening my state
State of mind with boredom
And suicide's not uncommon

Pot glasses thrown across the country

(Bridge)
Broken jaws and blackened eyes
Faces I hate but recognize
Child-like teaching children
And no one lasts the lifetime

Frustration no one can save
Macho bullshit stupid culture
Brought me here to be saved
40 something lifeless vultures

We’re breeding stupid killers
While feeding this remorse
This shit still goes deeper
Then they’re willing to be taught

The artistically creative
Exposed and beaten down
It’s not that uncommon
So we’re breeding well-worded suicide notes
