Track Name: El Smacko
Almost everyone I know lives a life they don't even want
I wonder what will happen to them
I've spent some nights alone, in tidal waves of growth
And I felt, I felt the urge to not be like them

If this is all life has to offer
I think I'm better off on the other side
And I'm sorry for being upfront
About the way I would rather die

I can't help but feel alone when I'm surrounded by ghosts
And I see, I see it now more than ever
No one really cares, cigarettes and tangled hair
At least you'll look good going to my funeral
Track Name: Trapped
So you had a bad day
I'm sorry to say I feel the same
I wish away the pain with poison in my veins
Don't ask my name
'Cause I'm smoke rolling in the rain
I'm here today, but gone tomorrow
I cannot stay

No I'm not trying to take away from you
I've wrote the words before
But never meant them like the way I do
This time I'm true
No one wants to feel the way I do
To be alone when I should be at home, alone with you

To sit and talk is all that I could ever want
The weight I brought, with heat on my neck like the sun
I made you laugh and made me think I had a chance
To ask you back, the words never come, I can't relax

I'm coming up just to get knocked down again
And making friends out of the walls that I am so trapped in
