Track Name: Running From It
There was a boy who broke her heart
And she went running right to the bridge
To jump from it

This is the story of a girl like me
But I am nothing like that
I wouldn’t jump I like to live

She was the kind of girl that I admire
For all of the feelings that she feels
She is running from it
And I am still here

He was the kind of boy that you don’t want to visit
When you are with your family
I don’t know if he wanted something from her
But I know that he wanted something from me

I cannot stand between them
I wanna be the one who speaks on my own
I am running from it
But I am still here

This is a body I have borrowed from someone else
You can do whatever you want with it
These are the words I memorized from something I read
I have stolen all the noble things I said

And in the middle of the night when you are sleeping
I will slip into your skin

We are running from it
Why are we still here?
Track Name: Ready To Die
I don’t really wanna need you
I don’t really wanna be with you
I don’t really wanna follow you
I don’t want all my dreams to come true

I don’t really wanna wake up
I don’t want to put on my makeup
I don’t wanna do the dishes
I won’t give you any more kisses

You say everyone is moving on
You show me that I’m weak and that you are strong
I know that I am the stronger one
I will come alive when the ending comes

And where will you be when the meteor hits
Running away from the tidal wave
Begging the soldiers to make you brave
Instead of jumping in
And taking your final swim

I’m ready to die
Right now
I don’t know why
I just know

I don’t think about dying
I don’t think about anything
I won’t tell you want I’m going to do
There’s nothing stopping me from forgetting you

I sit waiting for the sun to set
I’m watching the moon as it lifts its head
You’re watching me and I’m watching you
You think its disaster but its nothing new

I feel empty and it’s beautiful
The meteor’s coming and the moon is full
The wave is rising and my hair is wet
The wetter is gets the more I forget

I’m ready to die
Right now
I don’t know why
I just know

No, no, no
