Midtown Frayed Ends

Fraying all the ends

You are the last one who can recognize his friends

And nothing ever changes

You’re always exchanging peace of mind

For everything you want

Everything.

You want it all

I can see it in your eyes

I can see right through you

There’s nothing to you

You’re telling lies

And you’ll surround yourself with

Everyone who says what you need to feel all right

Why can’t you be strong?

Fraying all the ends

You are the last one who can recognize his friends

And nothing ever changes

You’re always exchanging peace of mind

For everything you want

Everything.

You want it all

I can see it in your eyes

I can see right through you

There’s nothing to you

You conjure lies

And you’ll surround yourself with

Everyone who says what you need to feel all right

Everyone who speaks the words

That make you perpetually contrived

They say what you want to hear

Say what you want to hear

What you want to

Why can’t you be strong?

Midtown The Easy Way Out

Easy way out You said so yourself, I always took the easy way out, but you can’t see me coming down when you’re jumping ship. I thought we wanted more, I guess I was wrong. You can’t take the easy way out, it’s not that easy now. You can’t take that easy way, and you’ll think I’ll stay, but like the years, I’m drifting away. You said so yourself, this time, I won’t take the easy way out. The truth is what I’m all about. But I should have known, you’re the same way you were before.

Midtown Just Rock & Roll

God I wish I could hate you for the rest of my…

You can never tell me I shouldn’t walk away

it’s foolish to assume that I’ll be coming back another day

you were never right and I was never wrong

does truth lie in sincerity of another sullen song

Cause you were right then I should have been the one to release it

it’s coming back to tease me

But I was just born and you’re pride was too strong

Can you change it? And are you willing to face it?

Yeah

You can tell your story and coat it any way

but you will never change who you trying to play now

your friends are falling out

they know you just don’t care

they know you never did

Cause you were right then I should have been the one to release it

it’s coming back to tease me

But I was just born and you’re pride was too strong

Can you change it? And are you willing to face it?

Cause they say always the first one

is never as good as the next

hey, it’s just rock and roll

even though you might think you lost it all.

Cause the times they are a changing

and who can predict what’s next

hey, you lost control

even though you might have thought you had it all

and hey (hey, hey) it’s just rock and roll

and I’ll never change

I love it just the same

I’ll never change

because I love it just the same

God I wish I could hate you the rest of my life

God I wish I could hate you the rest of my life

God I wish I could hate you the rest of my life

God I wish I could hate you for the rest of my…

God I wish I could hate you (God I wish I could hate you) for the rest of my life

God I wish I could hate you (God I wish I could hate you) for the rest of my life

God I wish I could hate you (God I wish I could hate you) for the rest of my life

(Nothing would make me happier)

God I wish I could hate you (God I wish I could hate you) for the rest of my life

(Nothing would make me happier)

Midtown Resting Sound

She’s rising

And I’m sinking

I’m losing sleep

She’s resting

Sound in bed with such variety

I’m driving

And she’s finding

That she’ll survive

When I’m long gone

Do I stay in your mind at least?

There’s so much time

And nowhere left to go

She’s overcompensating

For what she can never let go of

There’s so much time

And nowhere left to go

Am I just an escape

For time to pass through

She’s lying

And I’m thinking

She’s trying to forget it all

A memory of the past I’ll be

I’m buying

That she’s trying

The threat is clear

And growing strong

I dream to have such clarity

It’s all I’m thinking about

I guess I’ll figure it out

I’ll think

I’ll drink to each new lesson

Ignore the passing of days

Eventually I’ll fade

And in the end

It’s just a lesson

Midtown Living In Spite

Tearing pictures of the wall, you took the fall from truth so everyone could see that you don’t live your life for me. You live for you and there’s nothing I can do, but try to climb out the trenches I’ve dug cause I can’t see underground. I’m not saying that I understand what it’s like to be living in spite, but five years from now it’ll all seem so trite. I’m sleeping today so I can wake in your arms tonight.

Midtown Become What You Hate

I thought I found someone

I thought I had something I could trust

I still can’t believe what happened

It’s not that you lied to us

It’s not that our friendship was a front

It’s just that I can’t see the real in you

Yeah for years I was afraid

Now I can finally say

That I’m afraid that you’ve become

Everything that you had hated

I’m waiting

For this to blow away

How could I have been so blind

How could I have ignored so many signs

Especially when my friends warned me

About your deceptive side

And that your friendship was a lie

Yeah for years I was betrayed

Now I can finally say

That I’m afraid that you’ve become

Everything that you had hated

I’m waiting

For this to blow away

I’ve been working for

Something oh so fake

But it’s never too late

To correct the faults

So many others made

I know you don’t care about whats right or fair

I heard you say your future is looking so great

I’ve been working for

Something oh so fake

But I’m not working for you no more

Midtown Empty Like The Ocean

Make my body motion, yeah the night is young

Open like the ocean, cold and numb

Dance until the sweat forms on your face

It won’t take long to flush the poisons

I don’t care where you come from

If it’s awful there

All of us are alone

I forget where I come from

And I don’t care

So what’s wrong? I think too much

I don’t want to fuck you, I don’t want to touch

I just want to fill you with regret

I’ve said it all before, it’s pointless

I don’t care where you come from

If it’s awful there

All of us are alone

I forget where I come from

What I’m doing here

It’s so redundant

I don’t care where you come from

If it’s awful there

We are all alone

I forget where I come from

I don’t care

Dance until the sweat forms on your face

Midtown Manhattan

I can’t believe anything

Every year it’s the same

Chew me up

Spit me out again

Oh, I’ve seen it all

Winter, Summer, Fall

I love you with my eyes

What’s you’re name

I can’t believe how I’m living

Lost in Manhattan

I don’t know where to go

There’s no where left to go

I can’t believe how I’m living

Lost in Manhattan

Midtown Perfect

This time I think it could be perfect

But you’d push it away

I came here today with a purpose

Should I try or just let it go

‘Cause these things I’d like to ask you

Are things I can’t explain

Or should I keep your glance outside the porch last Saturday

Should I have succumbed to your courtesy

I could see you were trying to get my attention

But I pushed it away

This time I think it could be perfect

But you’d push it away

Tonight it seemed suddenly perfect

Still no promises made

The balance of power was shifted

Were you trying to let me in

Or was I trying so hard

That all my confidence was lost tonight

Confused and regretful I cracked

Swallowed it back

And left with no spine intact

Maybe we were meant to see what’s right

See how this ought to be

Just a taste of life to see what’s right

You made sense out of me

What a shame that we’re slipping away now

I’m going away now

Off to see what’s out there

‘Cause you’re all that’s here for me

Midtown Recluse

I’ve heard advice

That anger soon subsides

And you go on with your life

And gain new insight

But inside

I’m thinking that just won’t suffice

Cause I’m sure I’d like to take it back

And kill it at the start

Yeah, we’re going far

Yeah, it’s from the heart

Yeah, we’re taking care of every single one of us

Who do you trust?

If we could be recluse

And I could bring a lifetime of abuse

Anywhere, I’d be killing you

My anger still persists

And it will not desist until I manifest on you

I’ve heard advice

That anger soon subsides

And you go on with your life

And gain new insight

But inside

I’m thinking that just won’t suffice

Cause I’m sure I’d like to take it back

And kill it at the start

Yeah, we’re going far

Yeah, it’s from the heart

Yeah, we’re taking care of every single one of us

Who do you trust?

If we could be recluse

And I could bring a lifetime of abuse

Anywhere, I’d be killing you

My anger still persists

And it will not desist until I manifest

Wouldn’t it be life to test

How thin I wear

When I remember you

If we could be recluse

And I could bring a lifetime of abuse

Anywhere, I’d be killing you

My anger still persists

And it will not desist until I manifest

Wouldn’t it be life to test

How thin I wear

When I remember you
