Sick Day 03:50
routine has got the best of me does it have the best of you? hours to days to weeks to years I slowly realize my fears it feels like I'm walking in my sleep tell me, how did I get here? lost my way inside the maze now I need some time this could take days lets call in and say that we're not well keep it as our secret no one will we tell because we're alright we just took back our day let's put this into motion it's one phone call away then we'll make our getaway sitting here all day is killing me I'd rather spend the day with you wasting time in this rat's race I need some time to slow down my pace it feels like I'm dead on my feet I've got to get away from here lost my way inside the haze
Overview 03:09
I hope you're doing well but it's hard for me to tell now I'm hanging on a thread after everything that's been said you know it's true that I want you you've got this hold on me hesitated, now I'm waiting just how should this be? give me an overview of what you think of me and you because I want to know right now do you think someway some how? now you've had more time to time and I've got this gut instinct just give me a little clue because I need to hear it from you
Bad Advice 03:05
you've taken to some bad advice have you lost sight of wrong and right? it's as if there is no end in the way that you'll bend for your new friends but do you know the score or even what it's all for? the things you say and do wrapped up in your mistakes don't even know what to make or what they'll put you though or if what they'll say is true something's come over you you've given up your own device did you think twice about the price? with the means you'll find an end it's not what you intend but it's what you send what's come over you?
every dog will have his day at least that's what people say and I'm waiting for that day to come around so I'll sit here by myself and wait for fate to show herself so here I am once again looking in from the outside all my life I've just tried to do what's right so why am I alone again tonight? once again they say I'm better off this way but who's listening anyway? their opinions fade away once again I've got my face against the glass someone's got to kick my ass and wake me up wake me up when you get through I've got no motivation I need some inspiration lift me up and pull me through back to you
The Crew 01:30
what's this happening to me? I can't decipher wrong from right what once was clear has now turned muddied it has taken away my sight I hear you laughing as I'm crashing into everything around me I need to gain control a path to follow what's wrong? what's right? it has taken away my sight
