I don’t wanna rot I don’t wanna rot I don’t wanna I don’t wanna rot here alone Standing at the top Leaning on the edge I don’t wanna I don’t wanna die here alone If I don’t like it I can change it If I don’t like it I can leave it Wish upon a well Spend a night in hell Nothing left Empty is the promise I sew Member of the club Living life undone I just wanna I just wanna die here alone If I don’t like it I can change it If I don’t like it I can leave it I wonder if I’m gonna stay I wonder if it is too late

I blend into lovers avail. I’m a breath away from leaving I want to be your shadow That protects you from the rain. Chorus: Silent fight Hold me tight It burns me from the inside when you’re stars away from here. I’m tied against your wheel to steer you back to me. Chorus: Silent fight Hold me tight

Calm down it’s all a fad. It’s gonna change one year to next If unaware just what to do I’ll start again and see it through. I can change my point of view There’s nothing here that I won’t do. Chorus: Years and years I made it through this hole. Ever changing consequence I chose. ----------------------------------------- I’m confused and I’m a mess. I’ll clean it up, take out the trash. If there’s a lesson I need to learn I may just have to crash and burn. I can change my point of view There’s nothing here that I won’t do. Chorus: Years and years I made it through this hole. Ever changing consequence I chose.

Come around and be free Just you and me and the world will see. Flaws we see in ourselves Falling apart, I need a start. Chorus: Victimize yourself Blame it on high wealth The systems got you down Scratching your way out. Live amongst the trees Live off the land or a garbage can. Help you and yourself Single and free the whole world to be. Chorus: Victimize yourself Blame it on high wealth The systems got you down Scratching your way out. Bridge: No one said it was easy to get off the bathroom floor Never will I take the risk Without a hint of reward. - Come around and be free Just you and me and the world will see. Flaws we see in ourselves Falling apart, I need a start.

I’m feeling nervous since I wrote that letter. A strong reminder I need to do better. . I will end where I begin I will end where I begin There’s truth in the jokes I’ve made. Some were hateful and made them run away. What I don’t know can hurt me Steal my breath and remove my soul. I will end where I begin A crackling light above my head. I woke from a dream my best friend was dead. license

A night on the streets with just you and me. I want to know where you’re from. I tried being me but the moment wasn’t free I left all my truth in the car. I won’t ask you any favors Tell me when it stops I know you can see how my life used to be The scars on my skin will tell all. Forcing the fear against what I hold dear I won’t let you steal anymore. I won’t ask you any favors Tell me when it stops I won’t ask you any favors Tell me when it stops

I pull up my sleeves to hold on and prepare for changing ships. The mornings set aside to help me think of the memories I regretfully missed. It never fails when you realize you’re up from a dream. We are two different beings trying to raise a family. We wanted to believe that we could handle anything. All I ever wanted was nothing that I got from compromise. I tried to change and life rearranged and I was lost. It never fails when you realize you’re up from a dream. We are two different beings trying to raise a family. We wanted to believe that we could handle anything.

The ghost that haunts our greatest fears Tell us all to disappear. An entire year oppressed from life No one questioned, no one tried. CHORUS: I don’t want to take a side. I don’t want to be forced to say goodbye It’s never too late for what might have been A chance for us all to be human again. Proven to fail the rules that lay Bearing the tears and life's decay Visible struggles and empty streets We can’t be forced to do this again. CHORUS: I don’t want to take a side. I don’t want to be forced to say goodbye It’s never too late for what might have been A chance for us all to be human again. Bridge: The future comes, the past is gone… forever Nobody has to take a side. The people are strong and our leaders comply.

Folding the corners of life in despair Trying to balance an uneven scale Drunk from the stress of commitment that fails The hope is that one day the people will change. Chorus: When do I say no to letting losers in Somehow I relent to getting rid of them. Dead in the water when you find they can’t swim Left on their own you're compelled to swoop in. Stuck to a pattern of trying to fix Broken down people who suck you right in. Chorus: When do I say no to letting losers in Somehow I relent to getting rid of them. Bridge: When do I say no When do I say no
