Track Name: Dead Dog
I watch you cry on the couch
Thick snot drips from your mouth
You said it would all be okay
They're gonna put me down anyway

You watch me go in the house
I rip your favorite...

In my dreams we owned a house
I'm the dead dog on your couch
The hot weather makes us tired
All I want to do is sleep

I watch you cry
Track Name: Fog
this time we've gone too far
the fog is thick / I can't tell where you are
so I'm listening / listening to hear your sweet voice
follow my voice
harrowing as this is
it's too soon to tell / it's too late to turn back
so I'm listening / listening for any sound at all
follow my voice
how long / have you been standing there
listening / listening to me talk to myself
I must be going crazy / I must be slipping fast
I don't know how long is gonna last
but if you wanna wait it out
that's completely your call / it was always your call
Track Name: Look Away
when the early nighttime comes
when the sky is void of blue
who will find refuge inside this room
your choice defense mechanism
is to look away / look away look away
you detach your head so that you look away
from all you do / the lies you say
the gloom you keep / is seeping through you
even now
im waiting to turn 16 so
i can drive far away / far away far away
i'll show everyone on monday
brand new clothes to wear / brand new words to say
all i do / is slow down time
the borrowed seconds
are leaking through my / fingers
all i do / is slow down time
the borrowed seconds
are slipping through my / fingers
Track Name: Sick Dog
sorry i had to go / sorry i had to walk out
too much talking now / your body's gonna stalk me now
sorry you had to be / you had to be a million things for me
your hands are like a skeleton's hands / wrist in a rubber band
cracking up again / staying up all night again
watching home movies / seeing how much I've changed
you're on the monitor / your face is on the monitor
i tripped the fuse the lights went out
you're still on the monitor somehow
how is that possible

in my dreams i own a house
you're the sick dog on my couch
the hot weather makes us tired
and all i want is sleep
Track Name: Why'd You Have To Go
I need someone to hold me tight when the night falls
I need someone to hold me tight when my mom calls

Why'd you have to go?

I need someone to listen to me complain
About the movie you pick to watch when its raining

Why'd you have to go?
