Track Name: All My Axes Are Exes
All my axes are exes
All my songs are deceased
All my axes are exes
And I want them back

It used to all come so easily
Until something sucked the life out of me
Now I've got to get it all back
I feel just like I'm running in place
My mind is only taking up space
I guess I'll stumble through this alone

Because all my axes are exes
All my songs are deceased
All my axes are exes
And I want them back
And I want them now

It's been so long I don't know what I'm supposed to do here
It's my new fear that the time will come
And nothing good is coming my way
The world has turned left me here
With my guitar and some ancient gear
And I hope that I could write a song and sing it to you
Track Name: Mountain
I can see for miles from here
I can see the world from the summit
I can see the world but they can't see me
This is where I came to hide
This is where I hoped you would find me
This is where I hoped you would set me free

So I climb to the top and then I turn around and climb back down
Then I sink to to the bottom to the point that I would almost drown
I don't want to waste another single day
I just want this emptiness to go away
So I climb to the top and then I turn around and climb back down
And then I do it again

I can hardly breathe down here
I can't see a thing when I'm under
I can't see a thing when I can't see you
This is where I came to hide
Now I'm so afraid it'll kill me
Now I'm so afraid it'll kill us both
Track Name: Breakdown
Something happened on the way to my breakdown
I set myself up then I suffered the takedown
I know it didn't come from you
Because you're lying here right next to me too
I used to think that it was me versus you
But then I realized this world is fucking with you too
I should have known it at the time
When I saw the look of pain in your eyes

Should I get on my feet
Should I just stay down here on the ground
And just accept this hand that was given to me
Should we start over again
What if we just make a brand new start
I'd rather stay down here than get up and walk away from you

Something happened on the way to my breakdown
I set myself up then I suffered the takedown
Everybody’s so full of shit
When they say life is what you make of it
I never opted into getting my ass kicked
While everybody else just looks so fucking fantastic
I've got to get ahold of myself
Or I'll end up becoming somebody else

Should I get ready to fight
Maybe you should grab my hand and hold me back
Because I can't handle another attack
Should we start over again
What if we just make a brand new start
I'd rather stay down here than get up and walk away from you
