Track Name: Writers Block
I pick up my pen
And place the paper
Try to become my own creator
But nothing comes out
No thoughts no doubt
No interpretations
of what life is really about
My mind draws a blank
Am I a writer or a fucking fake

(Aggressive, Depressive)

I pick up my pen
And place the paper
Try to become my own creator
But nothing comes out
No thoughts no doubt
No interpretations
of what life is really about
My mind draws a blank
Am I a writer or a fucking fake

(Check Your Vital Signs)

Lyrics By: Chris Lauretti
Track Name: Happy?
Verse:
(Are you happy? Am I happy?)
I tried change,
I tried to be a more positive person
It never worked,
And this negative weight is the reason

A better life, a better me
Something for a generation to feed
Turns out a new me is not what they need
Because we are all so consumed
By consumer bought power and greed x2

Verse:
I used to think that we were all born equal
Now I see that some are good some are evil
Everyone was not born or created equal
It has nothing to do with color, sex or gender
It's about who's the winner and who's the failure
It's based on who is a sheep and who is a leader
I promise the grass will always be greener
Pick a side, honestly I'd rather be on neither

Chorus:
Cut my fucking face from ear to ear
(Are you happy? Am I happy?)
I just want to smile for you my dear
Nothing would make me happier
Show me what it means to be happy (happy)
Show me what it means to feel happy
If I feel dead inside
There's no place for me to hide
I'll peel back my skin
Just to let you in
Are you happy?
Am I happy?
(Are you happy? Am I happy?)

Verse:
This negative weight is eating me alive
from the inside
I think I need a guide or guidance
Something to turn my nightmares in to bliss
I should be recovering not in recovery
Tell me how to find the happy me
Show me, show me how to be free
Teach me, teach me how to be free
Show me how to be free
(Are you happy? Am I happy?)
Teach me how to be happy x2

Chorus:
Cut my fucking face from ear to ear
I just want to smile for you my dear
Nothing could make me happier
Show me what it means to be happy
(Are you happy? Am I happy?)
If I feel dead inside
There's no place for me to hide
I peel back my skin
Just to let you in
(Are you happy? Am I happy?)


Lyrics By: Chris Lauretti
Track Name: Aggressive
(Fuck you)
I have never loved someone
Without some person next to me cut, stabbing me in the back
(Fuck You)
What do you know about loss
What the fuck do you know about life and death
(Fuck You)

I'm sick of people
They can't keep their mouths shut
You think you're always right
Talking shit, you're so confident
Keep talking shit
I promise tonight will not be your night
You wanna fight me, you wanna fight me
(haha) Cause I will bleed you out
Come get me
I will bleed you out
Like the coward you are
You won't see me tremble
Cause bitch I earned every scar
(Fuck you)

I'm a little more aggressive
Then I was before
And I'm a lot less submissive
I always want more
x2
I have a short fuse
And I refuse to be used

(I Refuse)

Ask me why, why I'm violent
Ask me why, why I snap
(Ask me why)
Ask me why I'm violent
Ask me why I snap
It's a simple fact
I'm fed up with people
And what they lack
I'm sick of people
They can't keep their mouths shut
You always think you're right
Talking shit, Talk is cheap
Don't make the same mistake twice pussy

I have never loved someone
Without them getting stabbed in the back
by the person next to me
What do you know about loss
What the fuck do you know about life and death
(Fuck You)


Lyrics By: Chris Lauretti
Track Name: Depressive
You can find me at the bar
Drinking my sorrows away
You can find me there drowning in fear
Fear of the unknown
Fear of being alone
The feeling has manifested itself inside me

I try to put the past behind me
But somehow it always finds me
I ignore my phone
I figure if I'm gonna feel alone
I'd rather do it on my own

I hate myself
I hate my life
According to my family
I'm doing everything right
So why can't I sleep at night
It's not right
It's not right
It's not right

Life is my mistress
To a heart full of emptiness
I dug myself into a hole
I can't climbed back out without my soul
I am soulless
I am heartless
I am depressive x3

What makes people feel so alone
What makes you feel at home
With age I know I've grown
But (all i feel) all I feel is self hatred
Manipulating emotions
Pulling me down
Weighing me down

I try to put the past behind me
But somehow it always finds me
I ignore my phone
I figure if I'm gonna feel alone
I'd rather do it on my own

You can find me at the bar
Drinking my sorrows away
You can find me there drowning in fear
Fear of the unknown
Fear of being alone
The feeling has manifested itself inside me
Inside me x2

You can live with someone
You can love someone
But you always die alone
You always die alone
We always die alone


Lyrics By: Chris Lauretti
Track Name: Burned
I see the smoke pouring over the mountains
I feel my skin melt away from me
I am slowly burning
But I will never be set free

Just when I thought it was over
You keep pulling me back inside my head
To watch me burn

My skin is burned and scared
My life has been all torn apart

Just when I thought it was over
You keep pulling me back inside my head
To watch me burn
Soon you're gonna learn
You're the one who's gonna burn
Burn
You're gonna burn

So now listen to what I say
This is a dark day
But you will find a way
No need to explain
You will find a way through the pain

Just when I thought it was over
You keep pulling me back inside my head
To watch me burn
x3

You wanna watch me burn
Burn, Burn
But you're the one whose gonna burn

I see the smoke pouring over the mountains
I feel my skin melt away from me
I am slowly burning
But I will never be set free

(Say it)
(You wanna watch me)
(Say it)
(You wanna watch me)
(Say it)
(You wanna watch me burn)
(Say it)
(You wanna watch me)
(Say it)
(You wanna watch me)
(Say it)
(You wanna watch me burn)
(Say it)
(You wanna watch me)
(Say it)
(You wanna watch me)
(Say it)
(You wanna watch me burn)
Soon you're gonna learn
You're the one who's gonna burn
Burn
You're gonna burn
Burn
Burn

Lyrics By: Chris Lauretti
Track Name: Bonfires Feat. Nick Lauretti
Chorus:
Take me back
To bonfires in the backyard
To the days when
Our lives really weren't that hard
We were innocents
Testing boundaries
And everyone respected
True loyalties
We were just kids
Ignoring priorities

Verse:
Setting fires and getting stoned
No matter where we were
We always found a home
And no matter what we were never alone x2
Never alone

Chorus:
Take me back
To bonfires in the backyard
To the days when
Our lives really weren't that hard
We were innocents
Testing boundaries
And everyone respected
True loyalties
We were just kids
Ignoring

Verse:
We were in our glory baby*
Ignoring our priorities*
Finding comfort in a bowl piece*
We were in our glory*
Breathing the ocean breeze*
With the water up to our knees*

Take me back, now, yeah
Take me back, fuck*
Take me back
To bonfires in the back, now

Chorus:
Take me back
To the bonfires in the backyard
To the days when
Our lives really weren't that hard
We were innocents
Testing boundaries
And everyone respected
True loyalties
We were just kids
Ignoring priorities

Finding comfort in a bowl piece
We were in our glory
Breathing the ocean breeze
With the water up to our knees
Up to our knees

Chorus:
Take me back
To bonfires in the backyard
To the days when
Our lives really weren't that hard
We were innocents
Testing boundaries
And everyone respected
True loyalties
We were just kids
Ignoring priorities

We were just kids
Ignoring priorities
Take me back to bonfires in the back


Lyrics By: Chris Lauretti
* - Preformed By Nick Lauretti
Track Name: Hand In Hand With Death
Intro:
I never got to say goodbye
(Go, if you're not moving,
you better not be breathing)

Chorus:
I never got the chance to say goodbye
(Tell me why)
Now you're six feet under
With your face up to the sky
Tell me why
(Tell me why)
Does everyone I love, die
Before I can get the chance to try

Verse:
You're gone
And I'm finding it hard to stay strong
(It won't be long) You're gone
And I'm finding it hard to move on
This song
Is a ballad for you to answer too
This song
Is for you, to know I loved you

Chorus:
I never got the chance to say goodbye
(Tell me why)
Now you're six feet under
With your face up to the sky
Tell me why
(Tell me why)
Does everyone I love, die
Before I can get the chance to try

Verse:
I've been
Tracing back your footsteps
I'm following you
Making the same mistakes as you
(I am the same as you)
I'm stuck here
What do I do, tell me what do
Because I'm lost in the pattern
And I see no way through
(And I can't explain how much I miss you)

Chorus:
I never got the chance to say goodbye
(Tell me why)
Now you're six feet under
With your face up to the sky
Tell me why
(Tell me why)
Does everyone I love, die
Before I can get the chance to try

Bridge:
Bring her back
x3
(Come on)

Bring, her, back
Don't tell me that it's impossible
Bring, her, back
I'm telling you this isn't optional
x7
