    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 kissed one of my best friends tonight
Its not like that, but I was impressed
To know that some day these girls grow up
And stop trying so hard to seem depressed

Fall out of tempo and tune
With a confused sub-culture so self consumed

Singin'
Oh that band is just so obscure
For every "fan" they push away
I just love them that much more
I’ve got money but I won't pay the doors
I'll divide the room with attitude
And tell everyone that I'm pure

And boys wear that shade of blue so unwell
The yellow words you thought up instead of just being felt

And i knew that you’d all fall off
When fall semester starts
And you're far too young
To have so many sons

I've got so much to say
Because I've spent most of my life the same
(But I am just the same)
