1) The Scale Tips

Alleged Victim
Verse 1:
Thereís not a thing you could say now
That would ever erase how
You made me feel down and out
(And then reveled while I was down)
My ambition might be unfound
But at least my soul is still unbound
Guys like you are still not allowed
(Though that doesnít stop them from coming around)

Hook:
I think I wanted love a little more than I wanted you
(In love I feared that you could never be - at least not with me and)
I think that a big part of me actually hated you too
(I think it was the idea that we lacked any sort of normalcy)

Chorus:
No need to surrender
Iím not coming for you
So go out on your bender
And get yourself a likeminded dude
Thereíll be no more needless pressure
Your depts are forgiven
Now go clear out your dresser
Youíre no longer my alleged victim

Verse 2:
Thereís not a whole lot of love left
When you split I became less
You left a hole deep in my chest
(And now my eyes are always wet)
And now my head is such a mess
Dunno why I never fled
Itís not like you and I ever wed
(guess I liked the pain that youíd inflict instead)

Hook:
I think I wanted love a little more than I wanted you
(In love I feared that you could never be - at least not with me and)
I think that a big part of me actually hated you too
(I think it was the idea that we lacked any sort of normalcy)

Chorus:
No need to surrender
Iím not coming for you
So go out on your bender
And get yourself a likeminded dude
Thereíll be no more needless pressure
Your depts are forgiven
Now go clear out your dresser
Youíre no longer my alleged victim

Bridge:
How did I live that whole time
With doubts of our life nearly every night
When inside I fought myself until I died
And all of my fears and self-loathing how are you the victim and not I?

Chorus:
No need to surrender
Iím not coming for you
So go out on your bender
And get yourself a likeminded dude
Thereíll be no more needless pressure
Your depts are forgiven
Now go clear out your dresser
Youíre no longer my alleged victim

Chorus:
No need to surrender
Iím not coming for you
So go out on your bender
And get yourself a likeminded dude
Thereíll be no more needless pressure
Your depts are forgiven
Now go clear out your dresser
Youíre no longer my alleged victim

Metamorphosis
Verse 1:
I know Iím not the first one to take this journey | and I wonít be the last
I only wish there was help for me | but there is no one or anything, alas

Hook 1:
And the fact is Iím already gone now
I'm not the man who once made you so proud
And although it's sad, trust you wonít want me around no more
'Cause it happens so fast

Chorus:
Don't remember me as all this
Remember me when I wasn't split
or being forced to dig this grave Iím in
or being forced into this metamorphosis
ďReminisce,Ē sure, but try not to ďmissĒ
Iím no longer ďhimĒ
Now Iím counterfeit
Thereís no escaping it
A bottomless pit
where no light omits
in metamorphosis

Verse 2:
I never did expect Iíd understand the final words of Tim
Iíd like to think I could handle it, but just look what it did to him

Hook 2:
And what sucks is Iím already half way there
As I write this, Iím glad you stay unaware
ĎCause Iíd die if I brought you into my nightmare
And it happens in a flash

Chorus:
Don't remember me as all this
Remember me when I wasn't split
or being forced to dig this grave Iím in
or being forced into this metamorphosis
ďReminisce,Ē sure, but try not to ďmissĒ
Iím no longer ďhimĒ
Now Iím counterfeit
Thereís no escaping it
A bottomless pit
where no light omits
in metamorphosis

Chorus:
Don't remember me as all this
Remember me when I wasn't split
or being forced to dig this grave Iím in
or being forced into this metamorphosis
ďReminisce,Ē sure, but try not to ďmissĒ
Iím no longer ďhimĒ
Now Iím counterfeit
Thereís no escaping it
A bottomless pit
where no light omits
in metamorphosis

Bridge:
Traveling for a long, long time
Knowing that once I get there I will die
But I sail along
I sail alone
I sail along

Chorus:
Don't remember me as all this
Remember me when I wasn't split
or being forced to dig this grave Iím in
or being forced into this metamorphosis
ďReminisce,Ē sure, but try not to ďmissĒ
Iím no longer ďhimĒ
Now Iím counterfeit
Thereís no escaping it
A bottomless pit
where no light omits
in metamorphosis

Donít remember
Reminisce, sure

Chorus:
Don't remember me as all this
Remember me when I wasn't split
or being forced to dig this grave Iím in
or being forced into this metamorphosis
ďReminisce,Ē sure, but try not to ďmissĒ
Iím no longer ďhimĒ
Now Iím counterfeit
Thereís no escaping it
A bottomless pit
where no light omits
in metamorphosis

The Scale Tips
Verse 1:
I took you for granted
Assumed youíd be mine forever just to have
Kind of funny how it all happened
It was a fear of mine that outlasted

Hook 1:
The rational me (I hate myself)
The remorseful me (I hate myself)
From within I plead (I love myself)
But to no avail itís still bleak (I hate myself)

Chorus:
I watch as the scale tips
Dumbstruck
But I stay fastened in

And I donít get up
I hate that Iím fascinated
Think that Iíve lost touch
Maybe Iím emasculated
This is more than bad luck
Yes it is

Verse 2:
You saw but you didnít know
We fought cause I didnít know how to let you go

Hook 2:
What a waste of me (I hate myself)
Not an ounce of humanity (I hate myself)
No light left to see (I fear myself)
No good left of me (I loath myself)

Chorus:
I watch as the scale tips
Dumbstruck
But I stay fastened in
And I donít get up
I hate that Iím fascinated
Think that Iíve lost touch
Maybe Iím emasculated
This is more than bad luck
Yes it is

Chorus:
I watch as the scale tips
Dumbstruck
But I stay fastened in
And I donít get up
I hate that Iím fascinated
Think that Iíve lost touch
Maybe Iím emasculated
This is more than bad luck
Yes it is

Bridge:
How many days Ďtil Iím full-on unhinged
How many ways have I predicted this

Chorus:
I watch as the scale tips
Dumbstruck
But I stay fastened in
And I donít get up
I hate that Iím fascinated
Think that Iíve lost touch
Maybe Iím emasculated
This is more than bad luck
Yes it is

Chorus:
I watch as the scale tips
Dumbstruck
But I stay fastened in
And I donít get up
I hate that Iím fascinated
Think that Iíve lost touch
Maybe Iím emasculated
This is more than bad luck
Yes it is

Why is This My Life (Segue)
Why is this my life?
Why is this my life?
Why is this my life?
Why is this my life?

Fake Numbered
Verse 1:
Iíve been feeling ambitious ever since we first met.
So I have to call you to tell you I think weíre a perfect set.
The way you make me feel I swear to you Iíll never forget.
I think I love you bae, but lets not get ahead.

Hook 1:
So I call feeling fantastic.
Wanna tell you that Iím feeling ecstatic.
Wanna see if you think what we have is magic.
But what I find instead leaves me flabbergasted.

Chorus:
Iím sorry but the number youíre trying to reach is no longer in service.
Goodbye. (Goodbye.)
Iím sorry but the number youíre trying to reach has been disconnected.
Goodbye. (Goodbye.)

Verse 2:
Iíve been re-contemplating it all and guess what, youíre still in my dept.
And youíll remain there, love, for as long as youíre in my head.
Canít believe I once thought of you as a fuck-ing perfect-10.
One day I know Iíll feel good, and loved. The question is when.

Hook 2:
ĎCause I called feeling fantastic.
Wanted to tell you I was feeling ecstatic.
Wanted to see if you thought what we had was magic.
But what I found instead left me flabbergasted.

Chorus:
Iím sorry but the number youíre trying to reach is no longer in service.
Goodbye. (Goodbye.)
Iím sorry but the number youíre trying to reach has been disconnected.
Goodbye. (Goodbye.)

Bridge:
Thereís so many things I had to say;
so many ways that I felt changed.
Thought youíd care since youíre the one
that fixed me up, made me feel loved,
and now Iím crushed. And itís you I blame,
youíre just the same as all men, lame.
Forget my name, forget we came.
It isnít fair. We had spunk, we had flare.
I called you but there was no one there.

Chorus:
Iím sorry but the number youíre trying to reach is no longer in service.
Goodbye. (Goodbye.)
Iím sorry but the number youíre trying to reach has been disconnected.
Goodbye. (Goodbye.)

Chorus/End:
Iím sorry but the number youíre trying to reach is no longer in service.
Goodbye. (Goodbye.)
Iím sorry.,.
What in the actual fuck!?!
.,.Trying to reach.,.
Did I seriously get fake numbered?!
Goodbye. Goodbye. Damn! Goodbye.

Didn't Click
Verse 1:
We, we were not happy oh no
We were not healthy at all
I canít keep making the same mistakes

Hook 1:
We just didnít click
Because you were a dick
And because you made me sick
Because your heart was a brick
And there just wasnít a fix
Because we just didnít mix
Far too many conflicts
Thereís so much more to this list

Chorus:
Look
(I am done, I am done)
I am done
(I am done, I am done)
No more tries
(No more tries, no more tries)
Iím fed up
(No more tries, no more tries)
No more lying
(No more lies, no more lies)
Thereís no trust
(No more lies, no more lies)
No more crying
(No more cries, no more cries)
(No more cries, no more cries)

Verse 2:
You, you made me feel so alive
And then you left so I cried
And itís grown ever harder to fake you

Hook 2:
And itís sad that we just didnít click
Because you were a prick
And because you made me pick
A life full of your shit
And anticipated fits
I wanted love and kisses
Instead of a delinquent
I got dis after dis

Chorus:
Look
(I am done, I am done)
I am done
(I am done, I am done)


No more tries
(No more tries, no more tries)
Iím fed up
(No more tries, no more tries)
No more lying

Thereís no trust

No more crying
(No more cries, no more cries)
(No more cries, no more cries)

I live my life for myself now
I live my life for myself now

Chorus:
Look
(I am done, I am done)
I am done
(I am done, I am done)
No more tries
(No more tries, no more tries)
Iím fed up
(No more tries, no more tries)
No more lying
(No more lies, no more lies)
Thereís no trust
(No more lies, no more lies)
No more crying
(No more cries, no more cries)
(No more cries, no more cries)

Chorus:

No more lying
(No more lies, no more lies)
Thereís no trust
(No more lies, no more lies)
No more crying
(No more cries, no more cries)
(No more cries, no more cries)

What I Found
Verse 1:
It didnít happen when I was young
Yet they all seem to think that it does
It only happened when I grew the fuck up
This is what it looks like. Is this too much?

Hook 1:
So I shut off all the music
and I just sat there in silence
until the answers started to pour in.
And boy did they pour.

Chorus:
And this is what I found
I found out why Iím all alone
Because no oneís ever made me whole
And Ďcause no oneís ever cared to know
And so this is what I found, bae
And why I now have to go
And what exactly made it so
And what turns somebodyís heart to stone

Verse 2:
I should be dead now I should be gone
Yet here I sit like Iím growing young
And every dayís like
ďIsnít it about time?
I put in enough right?Ē
Now Iím feeling outside

Hook 2:
You donít wanna know how
I went from most promising to blackout
Well join the fucking crowd
Iím thinking you wont like what I found out

Chorus:
And this is what I found
I found out why Iím all alone
Because no oneís ever made me whole
And Ďcause no oneís ever cared to know
And so this is what I found, bae
And why I now have to go
And what exactly made it so
And what turns somebodyís heart to stone

Chorus:
And this is what I found
I found out why Iím all alone
Because no oneís ever made me whole
And Ďcause no oneís ever cared to know
And so this is what I found, bae
And why I now have to go
And what exactly made it so
And what turns somebodyís heart to stone

Marooned
Verse 1:
My inner voice, man itís such a bitch
My blue eyes moist, and I start feeling sick
I donít have a choice, I just have to deal with it
I sit here as it destroys my very sad existence
Weíre all our own worst critics
When youíre all alone, itís a voice that starts to rip
Apart everything you know, and the very way you live
And it leaves no room to grow, so we start to lose our grip

Chorus:
And Iím standing here all confused
But I donít blame it all on you
And Iím starting to feel consumed
besides what have I got to lose?
Itís like Iíve already been marooned
Iíve already played the fool
And my simple life went kaboom
I donít wanna go back to school

Verse 2:
Although I canít say when I first started noticing
The distinctive awful bend of this fragile state Iím in
My psyche is not my friend, now Iím not sure that Iíll mend
And the wounds that I now have foreshadow the scary end
And there is no light while youíre in the devilís den
And it doesnít feel alright in here while itís happening
And my conscience it can bleed only it cannot be seen
So the mindís eye doesnít see while itís in this in-between

Chorus:
And Iím standing here all confused
But I donít blame it all on you
And Iím starting to feel consumed
besides what have I got to lose?
Itís like Iíve already been marooned
Iíve already played the fool
And my simple life went kaboom
I donít wanna go back to school

Bridge:
I donít know what happened here
Iím in shock itís still unclear
Iím not sure that a god is near
All I know is nothing stops this, stops this fear

Chorus:
And Iím standing here all confused
But I donít blame it all on you
And Iím starting to feel consumed
besides what have I got to lose?
Itís like Iíve already been marooned
Iíve already played the fool
And my simple life went kaboom
I donít wanna go back to school

Black Robe (Segue)
Don't black robe me you don't know me

Fem Boyfriend
Verse 1:
So many guys like Ďem rough
They say things like ďDonít want no womanĒ
You think that youíre manly but dude you still take it up the butt
Maybe spend less of your time with acting
You know, frontiní like youíre really manly
And ponder how to make your guy happy, instead
Thatís why I gots to have me

Chorus:
A fem boyfriend
Yes fem boyfriend
A guy with compassion
Wont you be my fem boyfriend
A guy who listens
My fem boyfriend
A guy who reasons
I want you as my boyfriend

Verse 2:
Why waste your time trying to act ďstraightĒ
When it isnĎt cute itís kind of annoying
Itís the cause of every headache guys like you and I have ever had
Feminine guys still have pecs
And biceps for miles on end
Every bit as much of a man
Only theyíre competent
Thatís why I gots to have me

Chorus:
A fem boyfriend
Yes fem boyfriend
A guy with compassion
Wont you be my fem boyfriend
A guy who listens
My fem boyfriend
A guy who reasons
I want you as my boyfriend

Silent Night
One:
Silent night, peaceful night
All is calm as the snow falls bright
Surround yourself with your family and friends
Snuggle tightly to keep the warmth in
Dream in a glorious sleep
Dream in a glorious sleep

Two:
Silent night, lovely night
Kids on their sleds while their dogs pull them tight
Dad makes hot coco while mom cheers you on
Lovers kissing like Billy and Jon
The Christmas spirit is here
The Christmas spirit is here

One:
Silent night, peaceful night
All is calm as the snow falls bright
Surround yourself with your family and friends
Snuggle tightly to keep the warmth in
Dream in a glorious sleep
Dream in a glorious sleep

Snap Out of It
Verse 1:
There was no substance in your eyes
I sat back and watched you fucking die inside
There was no warmth in your touch
I sat back and watched you just not give a fuck

Hook:
And I waited and I waited and I waited but you never did

Chorus:
Snap out of it
Come back to life
Because youíre missed
A dimming light

Verse 2:
In the beginning when we first met
You were so resilient and charismatic
But over the years you let yourself go
And I sat back and watched you as you lost your glow

Hook:
And I waited and I waited and I waited but you never did

Chorus:
Snap out of it
Come back to life
Because youíre missed
A dimming light

[break]

Chorus:
Snap out of it
Come back to life
Because youíre missed
A dimming light

Chorus:
Snap out of it
Come back to life
Because youíre missed
A dimming light

Crying Tears
Verse 1:
I remember when it was you and me forever
And I donít know what the future brings
But hopefully weíll be happy

Chorus:
Crying tears rolling down my cheek
Crying tears Iím hurt for eternity
Please just try to realize my pain
Before itís too late

Verse 2:
I remember that we were always together
I donít know what tomorrow brings
But hopefully youíll be wearing my ring

Chorus:
Crying tears rolling down my cheek
Crying tears Iím hurt for eternity
Please just try to realize my pain
Before itís too late

Link:
Yes I know that we were young
Walking around the mall
And taking the mini-bus
But we still could have had it all
Where did we go so wrong
I want you back because
You were my best friend

Bridge:
I donít wanna cry
While letting you deny

Our lovely life

Chorus:
Crying tears rolling down my cheek
Crying tears Iím hurt for eternity
Please just try to realize my pain
My pain
My pain
Crying tears rolling down my cheek
Crying tears Iím hurt for eternity
Please just try to realize my pain
My pain
My pain

What Would I Be Like
Verse 1:
There are strings present in front of me
Winding and twisting who knows where theyíll lead
What string do I take I guess weíll have to wait and see
Besides Iím not sure if Iíll like my chosen destiny

Chorus:
What would I be like today
If you and I had never come to be
Would I still live passive/aggressively
Would I still be unhinging this rapidly

Verse 2:
There are stars spread out across the nighttime sky
So looking out Iím looking back I have to stop and wonder why
Waiting for that ever illusive edge to come into light
Wondering if itíll bring a better fate to me before Iím out of time

Chorus:
What would I be like today
If you and I had never come to be
Would I still live passive/aggressively
Would I still be unhinging this rapidly

Bridge:
Would I love all evil people
Would I laugh at guys who are feeble

Chorus:
What would I be like today
If you and I had never come to be
Would I still live passive/aggressively
Would I still be unhinging this rapidly

Chorus:
What would I be like today
If you and I had never come to be
Would I still live passive/aggressively
Would I still be unhinging this rapidly

Alleged Victim (AutoTuneLess Version)
Verse 1:
Thereís not a thing you could say now
That would ever erase how
You made me feel down and out
(And then reveled while I was down)
My ambition might be unfound
But at least my soul is still unbound
Guys like you are still not allowed
(Though that doesnít stop them from coming around)

Hook:
I think I wanted love a little more than I wanted you
(In love I feared that you could never be - at least not with me and)
I think that a big part of me actually hated you too
(I think it was the idea that we lacked any sort of normalcy)

Chorus:
No need to surrender
Iím not coming for you
So go out on your bender
And get yourself a likeminded dude
Thereíll be no more needless pressure
Your depts are forgiven
Now go clear out your dresser
Youíre no longer my alleged victim

Verse 2:
Thereís not a whole lot of love left
When you split I became less
You left a hole deep in my chest
(And now my eyes are always wet)
And now my head is such a mess

Bridge:
How did I live that whole time
With doubts of our life nearly every night
When inside I fought myself until I died
And all of my fears and self-loathing how are you the victim and not I?

Nothing wrong with me.

Nothing wrong.
There was nothing wrong with me.
