Lyrics

Shot to Right

Written By: Matt Geronimo

If you’re going to take this out on me then look around and see who's
here and plea your case to me your right I'm wrong that's how it is I'm
going back to broken standards by your mind so indecisive and your
thoughts so contradictive of her heart that's mine

Broken glass and used up tissues all remains from the war they had
last night but we didn't let it get to us too close too far it's sad
we're going back to broken standards by your mind so indecisive and
your thoughts so contradictive of her heart that's mine

When I had my doubts about her I had never second-guessed we would be
together now when we first met
If accepting is not an option then I'll have to leave this time I'll be
back before you know it when you change your mind

I'll never lie I've got the proof I'll be sincere I'll tell the truth
when sunset falls I'll be there too I'll lie in bed with only you and
with you I am not content instead I'm taken by her scent of beauty and
maturity things leading up to future dreams
Don't make me choose random thoughts will conquer few

I'm not leaving, your not showing, optimism for us
growing

I'm Losing

Written By: Matt Geronimo

One thought one misconception you hold my body close I think I’m losing
my grip I think I’m losing control your fear is my obsession kind
hearts inside are cold I think I’m losing my grip I think I’m losing
control

These interests kills me and looks they heal my wounds but why this
time spent wasted and I feel your pain right now I think I’m falling
down I’m wasting all my patience on you

Unmask your hidden passions this masquerade grows old I think I’m
losing my grip I think I’m losing control deaf ears fall hard on
silence attempted shock I know I think I’m losing my grip I think I’m
losing control

These interests kills me and looks they heal my wounds but why this
time spent wasted and I feel your pain right now I think I’m falling
down I’m wasting all my patience on you/I’m losing/we can have tonight

Proper Precautions for a Fake Suicide

Written By: Matt Geronimo

Why don't you get away from this away from everything it all comes back to you take the easy way out you're so selfish you always think of yourself

Slitted wrists and knife stab wounds the pictures all too clear you ended up alone sitting by yourself thinking ways turn back time it's way too late right now

Where were you this time I walked through the door alone
If you stumble in my arms I will break your bones for sure and my bleeding heart will soak right through your shirt getting ready for the day to end and wash away feelings felt straight from the past the futures coming too fast
