    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

The grey seats between the black and the white
A view of those who've chose to see one side
What did you think those boys were all about
Too naive to see that it wasn't just your charm that made them let you come around
But don't be sad for me
I'm not the one who got let down

Fourth of July
Second vacation night
And we left alone
Besides the boys from home
That you packed up in your phone

The busses all passed
And my head ran so fast
But my feet stood so still

It wasn't hard to see how much you cared
We can blame the blind spots that left you unaware

What'd you think those boys were all about
Too naive to see that it wasn't just your charm that made them let you come around
The boys that you let choose the type of boys that would be good for you
They never loved you like I do

We let "Sorry About Tomorrow" play behind our best and worst times
I "made myself sick" while you talked to other guys
I almost left behind my clean spent time at carousel that summer night

You always say that were the same
Our difference is you never change

Fourth of July and I felt so alive and dead at the same time
With you yet so alone
The busses and I should have kept the focus on me
You're not the only one who's not so not naive
