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.

Standing at the show
But you're not here
Thanks for the invite
Next time I'll find a better friend
To fill my year
Out of place and like the boys who took the stage
I'm only here to fill some space
You can't linger on too long anymore
You borrowed your mystique
From bands too broke to ever tour
You won't make a dime that filler can't hide out
We all got smart and all the fakes got found
If freedom's only how I spend my time
I'll just stay home and leave this corner of the world
