    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.

lyrics

I've met a handful of "I can save her's"
And perfect candidates on paper
But for now I know I'm better off alone
Untied from the sinking stones

Even coffee girls with eyes so blue
Anymore I'm just too critical
To not harm someone's youth

I won't put my life
Up on a shelf
And throw rings and kids with girls
At my lack of respect for myself

Compensating for my passion
With a simple paycheck life
I've wasted time on material shit
That could could all fit back
In the end my pipe

And I'll just watch you settle
I'll watch my friends lie in wait
For their bitter ends or empty lives
And mistake kids with worn out wives

And I'll just watch you settle
I'll stay safely self involved
And let you talk like your life's better
But I know better

And I’ll just watch you settle
I know what's best for me
So lay awake all night quietly and let
The unsettled some of us dream

I've been a victim to myself all along

And I'll just watch you settle
while you tell me comfort's better
But I know better

I don't even know
Why I'm still here
