Track Name: Standing
The taste of chagrin, and unspeakably hollow
I think that I'm lost in no place for a boy romantic
Once, but not twice and not ever again
I'm visibly shaken by questions, like:

"Are you happy now?"

i'm broken, losing my spirit but here's my story.
Track Name: Hero Worship
Keep on growing, keep on going
Towards the victim on display
Studies show you're fine without a dream
Or a picture of reality

But I never felt that way
I built an art collection, by the way, of
Visions in my head of what I'll mean to you someday

So go ahead
Look down on me
Cause this is what I want, and it's everything you
Wanted to take away from me
And it's all I've got
You'll find things easier when you don't try quite so hard

You're just a plot device to build suspense
But this is not the life I wanted then
I took the higher ground, and then you shot me down
For what I could become
But not for what I've done

You've done enough to keep us down
But this is our love, this is our sound

So go ahead
Look down on me
Cause this is what I want, and it's everything you
Wanted to take away from me
And it's all I've got
You'll find things easier when you don't try quite so hard

For today is the day we are

Keep on growing, keep on going
Towards the victim on display
Studies show you're fine without a dream
Or a picture of reality

But I never felt that way
I built an art collection, by the way, of

visions in my head of what I'll mean to you someday.
Track Name: The New Ocean Hoodie Song
Spoken for when spoken to
Back to back, and never from me to you
I know the hate you feel so well

I fueled the fire and we went our separate ways,
Out of touch;
My ears hear every awful thing you've ever had to say

Oh, the things you'll never know

So now you think you're a wishing well
You've seen it all, you've been through hell
You met a fallen angel and he sucked you dry
And everyone believes such a pretty face,
You armed their hate, they tortured me
I'm dead, and now I've hurt you, but that's how it goes

Oh, the things you'll never know

It's all a game played best when you're full of pain
A lack of trust, plus secrets and morphine now
I'm done playing, it's not worth saying but
I kinda wish you'd die

I fueled the fire and we went our separate ways,
Out of touch;
My ears hear every awful thing you've ever had to say

Oh, the things you'll never know

So now you think you're a wishing well
You've seen it all, you've been through hell
You met a fallen angel and he sucked you dry
And everyone believes such a pretty face,
You armed their hate, they tortured me
I'm dead, and now I've hurt you, but that's how it goes

It's not worth saying, but I kinda wish you'd die

So now you think you're a wishing well
You've seen it all, you've been through hell
You met a fallen angel and he sucked you dry
And everyone believes such a pretty face,
You armed their hate, they tortured me
I'm dead, and now I've hurt you, but that's how it goes

the things you'll never, ever, ever know.
Track Name: The Letdown
Is this the last time that we meet like this?
Cause I don't know how to see you
The way that you want me to

We played along, until it all went wrong
And now you dream of the best me that wrote you a different song

I never said you had to stay,
All I ever said was leave me
And I'll be your fever dream
Go fall in love with the fractions of
The best facade you could dream up to drown out the letdown

Take it back
I wasn't ever yours, in fact
You never seemed the same until the day
We went our own ways

Call me wrong, and find a better song
To play along in your dreams, as you split at the seams
And you fuck someone that I'm not

I never said you had to stay,
All I ever said was leave me
And I'll be your fever dream
Go fall in love with the fractions of
The best facade you could dream up to drown out the letdown

let you down.
Track Name: Discontinued
My romance died today,
He set his soul free to swim through his baby teeth
I like the way it sounds, to free fall
But never really touch the ground

A splash, and rearrange
Escape from the echoes of our infancy
Cause there's no one left to miss their baby boy

We break, we break sometimes

Could you feel it when the passion died,
And was it hard enough?
Did it hurt enough for you?

Do you know what you left behind
Cause it was not enough, and
I will never be enough for you.

I don't feel anything but leaving you
Surprise, but I can be discontinued too

I lost a friend today,
He jumped off our bridge in spite of me
A chance, the warning signs
But whose voice was it...
Was it really mine?

I never said you had to stay,
All I ever said was leave me and I'll be your fever
Go fall in love with the fractions of
The best facade you could dream up to drown me out

we break, we break sometimes.
