about

A collection of songs I've finished and songs I didn't that I'm passing off as finished.
Hopefully I can redeem myself after my last release, you know what they say...

released December 28, 2015

Thanks to all you who take the time to listen to this, it means more than you know.
Thanks to my family and friends who put up with me making the same mistakes over and over again.
Thanks to everyone who has impacted my life, for better or worst, you've shaped me and I'm happy you have.
All songs written and performed by Chris.

Track Name: Learning Curve
You told me that you loved me/
now I think you don't/
You told me you'd never forget/
I hope that you won't

The rain falls on the pages that I right/
The city sleeps peacefully tonight/
I'm going to a place I've been before/
Ending up face down on the floor/

And I guess like has been fair to me/
my heart aches and my misery/
I guess this is what I deserve/
but like has a steep fucking learning curve/

I can't really sleep so well/
if it's because of you I cannot tell/
I don't want to take another pill/
though all these thoughts I can't seem to kill/

I think I just need to calm down/
get my feet back on the ground/
plus this is what I deserve/
because life has a steep learning curve/

And I guess like has been fair to me/
my heart aches and my misery/
I guess this is what I deserve/
but life has a steep fucking learning curve/
Track Name: It's Loud Outside
how the hell can I sleep/
when the world won't do the same/
how can I stay sane/
when the world won't do the same/
who can I blame/
who can I blame/
Track Name: Oh, I Guess I'm 20 Now
I taste blood in the back of my throat/
I have smoke burning my lips/
I don't know how I/
ended up like this/

and there's the test I forgot/
or the paper I never did/
life was so much simpler/
when I was a kid/

I'm old enough to be a cynic/
I don't think that means I should/
but I know if I wanted to/
I could

Are you manipulative or/
do you just understand me/
the way I understand me/

I've always thought I'd die young/
but I guess I was just scared/
The pressure of growing old/
is only good for the bold/
only good for the bold
Track Name: I'm Coming Home
On the empty streets at midnight, that's nothing new/
Driving back to my place. from you

and I don't know if they'll find the for sale sign/
a reaction to change, a petty crime/
and driving through the empty streets feels like I'm home/
I'm going home

I don't know if you'll ever be caught/
shoplifting from big chains/
but I hope if you ever do/
you won't be to blame

and I don't know if it's my car/
or just the shit PA roads/
but I'm driving through the empty streets tonight/
hoping tomorrow I'll feel alright

On the empty streets at midnight, that's nothing new/
Driving back to my place, from you

and I don't know if it's my car/
or just the shit PA roads/
but I'm driving through the empty streets tonight/
hoping tomorrow I'll feel alright
Track Name: Normal Fears
I'm terrified/
oh god I'm terrified/
but I don't know about what/

I'm terrified/
oh so terrified/
I can't figure out whats wrong/

I'm terrified/
I'm so terrified/
and I don't know scared of/
(music cuts)
and I guess that's the scary part
Track Name: On the News
An odd thing happened on the news today/
we are going to war they all say/
we'll bring freedom/
we'll bring democracy/
if you didn't support us you'd be crazy/

My parents tell me our leader is wise/
out on the street I can hear their cries/
recruiters work fast/
and boys go to war/
like we did years before/

A decade has passed since then/
it looks like we'll do it again/
another conflict/
another fight/
the sky will glow tonight/

An odd thing happened on the news today/
we are going to war they all say/
with our drone strikes/
and our digital fight/
tomorrow the world will be alright/
but it won't....be alright (repeat till point is made)
Track Name: Gather Round Folks
gather round folks all those who're oppressed/
gather round folks of every single race/
gather round folks of every sort of dress/

gather round folks and we'll organize/
gather round folks and we'll take what is ours/
gather round folks together we will rise/
gather round folks.........organize/

today we fight for our rights/
today we fight for ourselves/
today we fight for no more sleepless nights/

today we fight for a living wage
today we fight for our children's future
today we fight for the worker's of our age/
today we fight......for our age/
Track Name: Life's Alright
I guess I didn't get the girl/
but I'm not dead yet so there's more to adore/
and I didn't do to well on that test/
but I tried and it was my best

Sometimes I feel so alone/
I'll waste my time with a bitch and a moan/
I guess I hate myself but I'm stuck here till the end/
so in the mean time I'll be my own best friend
