Track Name: Nothing
I always thought I'd do my best in life
It's always harder than it seems
Tommorrow brings another chance
To go and make the worst mistake of all

no one ever talks about how everything we do is for nothing
its not nice to think that way
but we know its the truth either way

I did nothing
I was just wasting my time
I was just feeling sublime
I was just losing my mind
I did nothing
I was just lazying away
I was just taking a day or two or three hundred sixty five

and all that time I didnt think about you
cause memories arent real enough for me
the birds in the trees still sing about you
the song theyre singing isnt quite in key
the bells on the hill still ring without you
the tune theyre ringing, ding dong dinging
aint the tune for me

who hasnt wanted all the best from life?
who hasnt dreamt a bigger dream?
tommorrow brings another chance to never
talk about how everything we do is for nothing
no one likes to think that way
but we know its the truth either way

I did nothing
I was just wasting my time
I was just feeling sublime
I was just losing my mind
I did nothing
I was just lazying away
I was just taking a day or two or three hundred sixty five
I did nothing
Track Name: Ballast Stones
I've worn down everyone I've known
turned love from others into a loser's cast stones
youve seen it corrode and emote in my eyes
and I no longer catch you in the act of surprise
when you learn how to turn and leave me in my own mind

I've worn down every friend I've owed
took love from others for my own ballast stones
and believe me im not that good of a liar
when I twist and I turn like a murder for hire
when I think of you out there livin' for your own skin

but you heed me
this hate it has meaning
were on the same rock
but we see different moons

Ive turned away everything that I've owned
not good enough, give me new, all alone
this is me

you've seen it corrode and emote in my eyes
and I no longer catch you in the act of surprise
when you learn how to turn and leave me in my own mind
believe me I'm not that good of a liar
when I twist and I turn like a murder for hire
when I think of you out there livin' for your own skin

but you heed me
this hate it has meaning
oh we all have different outlooks
but you heed me
this hate it has meaning
oh, were on the same rock
but we see different moons
