Track Name: Descartes
I want to make as much of an impact on the world as the bus has on me in my dreams. But I can't control much of anything, sadly one of those things is me. I can only do the things I think are right. "Am I a good person?", the the thought keeps me every night in its clutches. It's hard because so much has changed, it's not easy to fix my ways but I can try, and I will try.

Was I doing something wrong? 'Cause I don't like what I've become. Even to myself now I'm a stranger in the corner. I don't know who I've become.

Maybe there is just nothing that I can do & everything I know's not true - but I can't live on a premise of madness. And there are so many things I've yet to find and so many things will be left behind. " What will be missed?" That's what on my mind.

Was I doing something wrong? 'Cause I don't like what I've become. Still to myself now in a stranger in that corner. I don't know who I've become.
Track Name: Fiend
There are so many things I've tried to put into lines
But the words are harder than drugs to find
And it's the only thing, the only thing
That'll keep me from losing my mind
I've been fiending for a line
'Cause if feels like it's all been for nothing

I often dream of running from police,
but they never catch me, no they haven't caught me and they never will

I guess my friends are fed up with me and so am I
Is it really so irrational to wanna die?
Might as well
Give up now 'cause I won't survive

Or I could get in the first Amtrak that I could find
and take it all the way to the end of the line
there'd be no trace of me that you'd ever find

'Cause I know my way around these cities
So you won't ever find me, bit then again
Who the fuck would look?
Track Name: Iverson
I still remember the bus route to your house
From mine downtown
I used to ride it every day
I guess its engrained in my brain
All I have are these late nights trying to let you rest
You knew me at my best
I guess
That nothing will be the same
I'm tired, sore, bent, and lame

I'll never forget the color of your eyes
Or the way your hand fits in mine

Goodbye

I still remember the bus route to your house
And the last time
I rode it
Track Name: Tread
Filled with disgust 'cause I hate that I'm so pissed,
can't shake the feeling that I don't even be missed.
It's been a while now, longer than its ever been
my legs are numb because I'm running with splinted shins.

There's a ringing in my ears, there's a ringing in my ears
but it's alright, it's been there all these fucking years.
There's a ringing from your phone, a ringing from your phone
it's probably me again 'cause I don't know how to leave you alone.

Can't speak my mind 'cause this knot inside my throat,
try and swallow my pride but I only choke.
I only choke.

And it feels like I'm lost at sea.
There's a hole in my raft,
the ocean creeps for my knees.
I can only tread this water for so long.

There's a ringing in my ears, a ringing in my ears
but it's alright, it's been there all these fucking years.
There's a ringing from your phone, a ringing from your phone
it's probably me again 'cause I don't know how to leave you alone.
Track Name: Counterfeit
The smell on my collar was the same as his.
I put it together, so, fuck this.
I still can't believe you'd lie,
forgave it once but not this time.

I used to think that I knew you.
Now the truth is clear, I guess so are you
'Cause I can see right though you.
Yea I can see right through you.

Was tired of the bullshit and the deciet.
I wave a white flag to admit defeat.
Maybe all things are meant to be,
but when you talk about your life:
Don't mention me.

Oh god I thought that I knew you.
Now the truth is clear, so are you
I see right though you.
Yea I see right through you.

Wish I could go back to when we were kids,
and didn't know that it'd come this.
I still can't believe you'd lie.
I'll probably forgive you with some time.
