Track Name: An Apology Is Just a Sorry Excuse for Revenge
This is the last song I'll write for you
She sleeps with the fishes tonight
(Have you had enough yet, have you had enough yet? Come on)
Don't mistake these for similes and metaphors
I meant every word I said

And how does it feel to know that you deserve every word I wrote for you?

I'm not one for apologies
(So don't expect my sympathies)
But please accept this one way ticket to the bottom of the sea
Surrender to the ocean
(Fill my lungs with lead)
This seabed's more a home than your arms could ever be

These oceans, these oceans will swallow me tonight
So follow me down and bury yourself in a saltwater casket
Of regret and shame, tonight

They're coming for you
You're not sorry yet
(As the seabed comes crashing down on you)

Excuse me while I find a polite way to tell you
(I hope you choke)
Oh, sweetness
I hope you choke
(As the seabed comes crashing down on you)
Read my lips: taking you for granted was my best mistake

I meant every word I said to you
Track Name: Given the Choice Between You and a Seasick Crocodile, I'd Take the Seasick Crocodile
Oh no, I've made a promise I can't keep
This oath I swore:
That I won't give in to this disease
I'll find a cure

But I won't be the one
In your line of fire
I won't let you take
All of my desire

Won't let you take it all away
No, won't let you get the best of me

Oh no, I think I've done it once again
Fallen for you
And I don't think I'll make it out alive
I won't survive

But I won't be the one
In your line of fire
I won't let you take
All of my desire

Won't let you take it all away
No, won't let you get the best of me

Not this time
Track Name: This Picture Is Only Worth 999 Words
I've found that aiming low is the best remedy
For something I'd like to call disappointment

And I aspire to make the headlines from the bottom of this ditch
My fifty-five cent summary of this interrupted life

I'd like to say that I'm a believer
But what do we know?
But I just can't seem to wrap my head around
What do we know about love?
This thing we call love

So when I kiss these guardrails, baby, don't cry for me
Don't waste your breath
You just never knew what love is

We can't go on living like we do
Don’t hold your breath on me
This constant friction makes me sick
Don’t hold your breath
I'm not coming home
So lock the gate and lose this key

This is my downward spiral
This is my last descent

So when I kiss these guardrails, baby, don't cry for me
Don't waste your breath
You just never knew what love is

We can't go on living like we do
Don’t hold your breath on me
This constant friction makes me sick
Don’t hold your breath
I'm not coming home
So lock the gate and lose this key

I'm aiming low, so I can't fall as far
Track Name: My Girlfriend Broke Up With Me on a Tour Bus Headed for Virginia Beach
Maybe I should have been a little less honest
Maybe I should have been more untrue
Maybe I should have been a little less like me
Maybe I should have been more like you

I hope you never forget this
I hope you someday see
I hope that all this hurts you
But not as much as this hurts me

I hope you scream this song
At the top of your lungs
Without a clue for who it's sung
Maybe I've got it all wrong
I can't help but feel
This is what you wanted all along

And I hope this hurts you deep inside
Don't you know?
Everyone is on my side

I hope you hurt
I hope you cry

Maybe I should have been a little less cautious
Maybe I shouldn't have thought things through
Maybe I should have been a little less caring
Maybe I should've given up on you

I hope you never forget this
I hope you someday see
I hope that all this hurts you
But not as much as this hurts me

I hope you scream this song
At the top of your lungs
Without a clue for who it's sung
Maybe I've got it all wrong
I can't help but feel
This is what you wanted all along

And I hope this hurts you deep inside
Don't you know?
Everyone is on my side

I hope you hurt
I hope you cry

I hope you burn
I hope you scream this song

So to hell with my fairytale ending
Bring on your hollywood plot
I'm hurt and I'm just pretending I'm not

So to hell with all your excuses
It's time to come clean
Lying now is completely useless

So to hell with fairytale endings
So to hell with all your excuses
So to hell with, to hell with you
So to hell with, to hell with you

I hope you burn in hell
So damn me too
Cast me down I'll burn with you
Maybe this burning fire
Will purge our souls
We'll become one as we expire

I hope you burn forever
This is what you wanted all along
Track Name: Smooth Seas Make for Poor Sailors
Somehow I've found myself all alone
But not alone at all
I'm finding footsteps in the sand
But they are not my own

So speak up, my heart
Speak up
This discontent within my soul can only whisper for so long
Speak up
What are you beating for?

This darkness is unrelenting
Oh, and it's all around me
But what good is the light if I stumbled when I saw?
My lungs scream for an answer
In this solitary silence
Oh, God, my God, how long must this go on?

I'm tossing and I'm turning
And I'm failing, I'm failing You
I feel the tide pulling me deeper
But it's getting so hard to fight
My heart is lifting its anchor
And You're losing me
To the vanities
To the vices
To all the places I swore I'd never go

From day one it's been the smallest things that have hurt me the most
But it's true that I never took a step with this end in mind
And I can only tread this water for so long before I'm eternally under
'Cause I'm running out of options, and we're running out of time
I'm up to my neck in a sea full of excuses and bad decisions
And my soul has begun its descent to the depths
Surely, this will be the place of my reckoning
And as my lungs breathe seawater, I glimpse my end

I am the ocean
Make me move

But then I begin to be still, and know who you are
