    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

Change or stay the same
I don't care anymore
I’ve seen you grow weak
And I know that you see now
That I've grown bored

Call me detached
I've built a case against
Every friend I've ever had
I always wanted to be just like you
Until I found myself miserable
At twenty two

I was always too small in my head
To be half as tough as you were
When you were a kid
And the first sixteen were the worst
I never found a bag big enough
To hold all my hurt
And I'm glad I finally bought your attention
Just sorry it took so long
Now I've done some things
In our shared name
And it was almost too late
Before I realized I was wrong

So change
Or stay the same
You're not superman anymore
It's warmer now
But the chills still linger
From when you weren't around

Ive pushed it down so long
That the words are falling off my tongue
I used to see it as you pick me up
But you just call me out when I fall down
