Track Name: Missingno (1 In 256)
Can't find myself anywhere but here.
I can't disappear.
The drive to your house is so familiar
and its finally taken its toll on me.

Walk outside.
Smell the air.
It's unforgiving scent
stuck itself inside my nose
and left me here.

I try
I tire and wear but I press on.
Nothing along has felt less wrong.
I try
to pick myself up from falling down.
And I don't expect much from you.

I know I'm in good hands
'cause inside this tiny room
I know I won't feel so sad.
I know I won't feel so sad.
Track Name: Leaving Home
A decision too hard to make: Leaving behind my brothers.
I don't think I'll ever forget what we've done.
I know I'll miss those days
on the balcony of that apartment.
Staring into the night,
wondering where these songs would take us.
I know I'll miss this.
Track Name: It Could Be Perfect
I've been kept up at night
wondering what's missing.
Calling for it constantly,
expecting an answer.

But I don't think there were any thoughts about me
on that return trip back overseas,
yet I plead please won't somebody

knock on my front door?
I've been tired of waiting.
And all I've wanted is for you to show up.
It's been a long few months that I've been without you.

Do me a favor and go far away.
Just as long as you are somewhere out there.
I’ll never be at home without you.
No where is home if I'm alone.
Track Name: Go Home, Roger (Feat. Josh Milligan)
You scream your thoughts at me
while I fail to see
the point of involving me.
I scream for who knows me better than me.
So I guess that means I scream for nobody.

I wish I had stayed okay.
'Cause now all I wanna do is
wear ear plugs in public.
I wish I had stayed okay.
'Cause now all I wanna do is
wear ear plugs in public.

Please don't worry.
I'll find my own way.

Struggling with my doubts.
How will things turn out?
I know now with time, every single answer's found.
Track Name: Blend
Put my head against my hands
and hope nobody sees.
Gotta get away.
Disappear into those around me.
Feel free to take my focus and my energy.

Blend in with my surroundings.
I tend to prefer life in a mob.
I know I'm no good at this.
I've tried my whole life but never won.
I know I'm no good at this.
I cried at the time I was surprised it was just for fun.

I'm jumping from these rooftops,
praying something catches me.
I'm jumping from these rooftops
and I doubt that help'll be there for me.

Put my head against my hands
and hope nobody sees.
Gotta get away.
Disappear into those around me.
Feel free to take my focus and energy.
