Track Name: Growing Pains
Honestly things never change that much for me
I'm still angry
I'm always angry, at everyone and everything
Because I'm still nothing

I'm sorry mom I swear I'm trying
I'm sorry dad I cannot be
The man who fills your shoes
Maybe this next year will change me
While I'm building my boundaries from
Sticks and stones

Honestly I don't gain much from these mistakes
I'm still learning
I'm always learning to keep my head up high
Because I'm still breathing

I'm still breathing
Track Name: Untitled
Maybe the time we spent together
Doesn't matter to you
But it matters to me
I would forgive you if you cared
But from what I can see
You are done with me

I don't need you but i feel lost
At least I have this notebook
For my thoughts
It's not much but it's all I've got

And if caring got me this far
Then I guess I'm going nowhere
We're constantly stuck somewhere between
Being totally wrecked and totally fine
And that we're totally fine

I know why you needed to leave
Why would someone like you
Love someone like me
I'm a fuck up and I'll always be
But I won't change for you
No I'll change for me
Track Name: Benson (The Mic Stand)
I know I cannot change your mind
But there is something inside of me
Telling me to spend my time
Thinking and waiting
Nothing is perfect
And it's bringing me down

I've been told to
Live without expectations
But that is easier said than done
I can't just give up and run

You tell me that you're so accepting
You're not that accepting
And talking won't do us any good
And with all the ink inside this pen
I cannot force my thoughts into your head
And it's bringing me down

I've been told to
Live without expectations
But that is easier said than done
I can't just give up and run
Even with all the ink inside this pen
I cannot force my thoughts into your head

And i'm so done
Track Name: Basement Songs
I'm so nervous
I've always been nervous
It's never on the surface
But if you dig a little deeper you'll see
And I'm a fuck up
I've always been fucked up
I came in backwards from the start
And it will be the same way 'til the end

Don't look past me
(Don't look past me)
I've been standing on my own two feet
Don't look past me
(Don't look past me)
I've been standing on my own two feet
And that's an accomplishment for me

I don't know what a home is
Because I have been locked out
Breaking down the doors wouldn't work because
I'm not worth it
I've been trying my hardest
To figure this all out
I've been messing up every step of the way
But at least I'm trying
