Citizen I’m Sick Of Waiting

I don’t give enough to take back what I own.

My stories are told out of broken homes.

I could be a bit better if I kill off this ghost.

I’m alone.

I bleed from the inside,

And I won’t tell anyone.

I’m nowhere to find,

But I couldn’t care at all.

Live like a ghost to keep me from talking, til’ you notice where I’m at,

Cause I couldn’t care at all.

Nowhere to hide, and nowhere to run to when nobody listens.

I’m just a liar that’s tired of trying.

I’ll pick myself apart cause I couldn’t care at all.

And I’m sick

I’m sick of waiting.

Citizen How Does It Feel?

How does it feel

To be

All that you are

All that you want to be

Is that what you want to be?

And how does it feel

To be

What you’ve become

What you said you would never be

‘Cause I don’t feel anything anymore

So, take me away

How does it feel

To fit

Into a mold

To let go of what you know

And not have to hold your own

And how does it feel

To be

Just like your friends

To catch up on what you missed

As simple as you can get

And you still

Walk out alone

And you still walk out alone

And you still walk out alone

And you still walk out alone

And you still walk out alone

And you still walk out alone

(How’s it feel to let go)

And you still walk out alone

(Of everything that you know)

And you still walk out alone

(How’s it feel to let go)

And you still walk out alone

(Of everything that you know)

And you still walk out alone

(How’s it feel to let go)

And you still walk out alone

(Of everything that you know)

Citizen Roam The Room

Did the weight and all the pressure weed you out?

You got away, but I still carry you around.

I carry you around.

I want to know what I’ve been fighting for.

I want to know what I’ve become.

And is there something else I’m waiting for?

Or is the damage finally done?

Cause I’m done.

I’m done.

And it’s hard to watch you roam the room.

To watch you from the wall.

And it’s all I’ve got to think about.

It’s hard to watch you roam the room.

To watch you from the wall.

And every day gets old

Did you speak the words to say nothing at all?

And how did you find a way to speak up when I’d call?

And when your friends say I’m a waste of time,

Then you can find out on your own.

And if it’s coming down to pick a side,

Then you can decide where to go.

And it’s hard to watch you roam the room.

To watch you from the wall.

And it’s all I’ve got to think about.

It’s hard to watch you roam the room.

To watch you from the wall.

And every day gets old

Cause I’m done.

Citizen Detached

If my lungs would motivate the words to come out, I’d probably say “I’m dying to leave.” It’s been a long time since I’ve felt right. I’ve been counting down the days. It’s been a long time since I’ve felt right. This home isn’t home to me. (I’ve never felt more alone. This town is not a home.) But I’ve never felt more at home.

Citizen My Favorite Color

Spoon-feed me medicine

Shed myself, see me for who I am today

My will is genuine

Mistaken for, mistaken for, someone you embrace

My sober eyes are red

My mind is spinning around an error that I create

Someone to represent

Someone I forget, something I will never bandage separate

Soak your head into the sulfur

Stay patient for me

Paint yourself my favorite color

Stay pretty for me

I bled myself out again

You possess something that I never could replace

My time is running thin

You won’t be back again

My time is running thin

You won’t be back until I say so

Put your head under the water

Stay quiet for me

Make your mouth a little smaller

Stay quiet for me

Citizen Common Weather

The city’s getting darker by the second

And we’re losing sleep and losing friends in time

Where did all the weekends go

The wasted time and youth

Thin lines again

I never knew just what I’ve missed

But it’s hit or miss this time

I’ve paid my dues now it’s time to get this right

I know that things are changing now

I know that things are changing now

I know that things are changing

The only place I know has turned on me

Take a look into the setting sun

Take a look and who are you going to miss

Citizen I Still Shut My Eyes

Maybe I’m too quick to guess,

Throwing words again.

I keep cutting ties with my piece of mind

So I can get this out.

At times I count myself out,

Wait for days till I can be found.

At times I’m just down and out,

Wait for days till I can be found.

Once I’m alive again,

Once I’m alive I start to love again,

But I still shut my eyes.
