This is the fourth track on our second EP "No Disrespect".


Three a.m. and the nights are getting easier
As I begin, to come down from my peak exposed
My clammy hands, holding on to what's left of hope
I'll ever find something real

Lonelieness eats me up inside
I can't sleep and have no appetite
And I could lie to a girl and say I love her
So she'll say it back to me
and I could settle down and have a kid at 23
As my heart falls through the cracks

And no disrespect but that seems like the easy way out
And truth be told I don't know what I'm talking about
I picked a dream up that's been bought and sold
So I'll just stick to what I hope I know

Quietly sink into my sheets
We pillow talk away the weeks
About how I seem to hate everything
How I'm only happy when I'm singing
and If I let you down I'll let you have your way


I watch my friends come and go as I stare at these empty walls
And I feel I'm not doing enough for them or myself to become a person of substance
I reflect on my bleak day to day into the late night hours and feel selfish for having these dreams
But I feel this is the only path that makes sense to me


And no disrespect but that seems like the easy way out
And I don't believe a word that comes out of my damn mouth
But I've got my best friends, and these faults I own
So I'll just stick what what I hope, what I hope I know
