    An aural illustration of the feelings that ruin and separate me, the places those feelings have taken me, and finally some resolution. The album cover and casing represent the bags of heroin I used to hide behind and escape reality. I'm not some proud advocate for drug use, but rather a person who's lived on the opposing side of "normalcy" and lived to talk about it. I'm an advocate for awareness instead of sheltering, and I'm working on the issues that lead to the drugs by writing about them instead of acting on them.

    I accept that some might take it all for face value and call it a bunch of songs about shooting dope and being a true piece of shit, but I won't write happy songs for happy people to indulge in how happy they already are. I will continue to write fucking miserable songs, about how ugly we can be when we can't get out of our own way, for the people like myself who just need something to relate to.

It's five AM as I approach the bridge
In envy of old friends who still sleep in
They were jaded then and they're jaded now
Climbing social trees as i fell out
Rich kids in bad parts of town
A social scene in which they now have drown

It's no way to live
Sitting on the fence asking what if

I dwell on times we had before the 21
I grew up and you're all still always drunk
If I never got shot out I wonder where I'd be
Still cashing out to drink my self esteem
I get caught up but I know it's no way to live
Another sheltered Jersey kid moves across the bridge

I try to wake I try to wake
Obsession overtakes my state
I'm standing up but stuck in place
Standing still in dreams that I should chase

I'm sorry I Try to bring you down when i see myself as less
I know you're not so bad and I'm not quite the best
I realize now that we will never be the same
I was wired all wrong and just want someone to blame
It'll only be just one until I need one more
Back to habits I can't handle or afford
And honestly I just envy the freedoms that I lost
When I crossed the unseen lines I can't uncross
