Lyrics

Bastard

Written By: Star Off Machine

Taste you on my mouth
Smell you on my skin
Pass out on the floor
Wake up and do it all again

Take another ride
Give me one more kiss
Stained another day
With my list of broken promises

Eyes roll back in my head
Say goodbye to home and hello my friend

Maybe I should do it again
You're underneath my skin with your fingers digging in
I'll take a ride promise it won't end
Here we go again you're a bastard for a friend and get down

Burning like a star
Looking like a mess
These daysare so long
I can't get you off my chest

Take another ride
And taste another kiss
Add another day to my list of broken promises

Eyes roll back in my head
Say goodbye to home and hello my friend

Maybe I should do it again
You're underneath my skin with your fingers digging in
I'll take a ride promise it won't end
Here we go again you're a bastard for a friend
And get down

Cigarettes and coffee stains
Swollen mouth hang from window panes
Whiskey breath forgotten days
Can't look back and I'm not ok

Lost

Written By: STOFMA

Lost

It was seventh grade
Had a flannel tied around my waste
Sweaty hands shoved in my pockets
And fear all over my face
I felt dizzy an dirty and guilty as hell
Wishing it’s over and all turns out well
Back pressed up against a rusty screen door
And all that I wanted, I wanted no more

Complication, Insecurity

Take all I’ve saved
And wash it all away
Don’t feel better now
Than yesterday
Kiss innocence goodbye
I’ve lost my way

I was seventeen
In love with a prom queen
I was another notch in her bedpost
In this after school special scene
I felt anxious and stupid, she’s done this before
Her ruby red dressed slipped down to the floor
She turned off the light and I followed her hands
Seemed everything’s over before it began

Swallowing my pride

Take all I’ve saved
And wash it all away
Don’t feel better now
Than yesterday
Kiss innocence goodbye
I’ve lost my way

And I feel like a brand new boy
Funny how it works out that way
I’ll laugh again tomorrow
If I can get over yesterday

Disaster

Written By: STOFMA

Disaster

No more happy ever after
Here I come just another disaster
I’m not afraid of anything, but I might be a little scared of you
I can see through anything
And I see right through you

But I can’t take more of these…

Wasted nights, and bloodshot eyes
No more stomach aches
Until I’m crawling back to you
Back to you

Drunk again it must be Sunday
Do my things my own Goddamn way
I don’t care anymore; my mouth’s taped shut and my hands are tied
I can’t feel anymore
So I’ll lie and say “I’m feeling fine”

But I can’t take more of these…

Wasted nights, and bloodshot eyes
No more stomach aches
Until I’m crawling back to you
Time passes by just like your alibis
Falling down from grace
And I’m crawling back to you
Back to you

Here I come just another disaster

Wasted nights, and bloodshot eyes
No more stomach aches
Until I’m crawling back to you
Time passes by just like your alibis
Falling down from grace
And I’m crawling back to you
Back to you

Inside Out

Written By: STOFMA

Inside out

Wake up, wake up, I can’t sit still
Throw my head back and swallow this pill
Stay up, stay up, we sleep too late
Guess this life will just have to wait

You’ve got me inside out, and outside in
Where’s the story starting?
Where does it end?
You’ve got me inside out, and outside in
Sick of always tripping on all your broken promises

Cheer up, cheer up, it’s almost done
Maybe this could be the only one
Chill out, chill out, I can’t see clear
So close your eyes and I will disappear

You’ve got me inside out, and outside in
Where’s the story starting?
Where does it end?
You’ve got me inside out, and outside in
Sick of always tripping on all your broken promises

Wake up, and smell the roses
I’m here for you
Stay up, I’m waiting right here for you
So make up your mind

You’ve got me inside out, and outside in
Where’s the story starting?
Where does it end?
You’ve got me inside out, and outside in
Sick of always tripping on all your broken promises

Say Goodbye

Written By: STOFMA

Say Goodbye

Paranoid and frustrated
You’re drunk again; you never call its three thirty in the morning
Jealousy, my knees are shaking
Guess I’ll smoke another cigarette and try to burn away the time

Well I guess that it’s been a good time
But now seems like a good time to say goodbye

Can you pick up the pieces of this broken heart?
And put them back together for a brand new start
You can’t remember anything
And I can’t pretend to care
This ship is going down and pieces of me are falling everywhere

Burning out and I’m jaded
Before you throw those sucker punches let me wrap my hands behind my back
Falling down my heart is breaking
I can’t believe my eyes you shared your taste with someone else

Well I guess that it’s been a good time
But now seems like a good time to say goodbye

Can you pick up the pieces of this broken heart?
And put them back together for a brand new start
You can’t remember anything
And I can’t pretend to care
This ship is going down and pieces of me are falling everywhere

Side Of Me

Written By: Star Off Machine

Side Of Me

She crawls across the floor and whispers in my ear
Says “I’m not having fun anymore”
Drunk on her breath swollen eyes and her tears
And the shot gun wedding in the back of my car
Black circles under my eyes
Cause I never sleep at night
Drowning in her tears
Makes me feel like flypaper for her fears

When will this be over?
I feel like I can’t breathe
Holding my hair back and letting this world go
I’m sick of this side of me
Sick of this side of me

Tripped on my tongue with my foot in my mouth
And stumbled face first into her sarcastic smile
She says, “pass out go to sleep this never happened”
You’ll say sorry in the morning when you open your eyes
All that were left were lies
So she said it would be alright
Couldn’t help but believe
She’d made a first class fool out of me

When will this be over?
I feel like I can’t breathe
Holding my hair back and letting this world go
I’m sick of this side of me
Sick of this side of me

I was the cannon ball that broke down her walls
And she was the face on a magazine staring back at me
But I guess it’s all over

When will this be over?
I feel like I can’t breathe
Holding my hair back and letting this world go
I’m sick of this side of me
Sick of this side of me

Ninth Floor

Written By: STOFMA

Ninth Floor

Absolutely, positively, there’s no doubt in my mind
It’s like a landslide crashing down
On me at the speed of light

And who is to blame for all of this shame on you
I want this to change but I was on the ninth floor looking down
And they all look like ants to me

I’m a brother, I’m a father
I’m your neighbor’s best friend
Make a phone call, say good bye
Roll the credits cause it’s the end

And who is to blame for all of this shame on you
I want this to change but I was on the ninth floor looking down
And they all look like ants to me
Take a nose dive, face first into this concrete infinity
And they all look like ants to me

Absolutely, positively, who I am becomes who was I
It’s like a landslide, piles of stone of the life I’ve left behind

On the ninth floor, looking down and they all look like ants to me
Take a nose dive face first into this concrete infinity

And who is to blame for all this shame on you
I want this to change but I was

On the ninth floor, looking down and they all look like ants to me
Take a nose dive face first into this concrete infinity

And they all look like ants to me
Yes they all look like ants to me
