Track Name: Portraits
Check Engine Light

A different day
But all my problems are here to stay
And I can't get out of my bed
Shut my blinds and close my eyes
Tell myself it'll be alright
But I know that that is just a lie
It's a goddamn lie
I wave my white flag in the air
But life don't seem to care

I wrote this world a song
For everyone to sing along
To dance to when they're lost
Because one day we'll be gone
And all that will remain is a broken picture frame
Of the portraits that we paint

Caught in a web of insecurity
Fills my lungs and makes it hard to breathe
It gets the best of me
So I live just to die another day
I don't know how much I can take

I know I'm not alone
I'll be okay
Track Name: Goodbye Letter
Check Engine Light
"Goodbye Letter"

Write me off
And I'll write you a sad song to tell my story
And I'm not saying sorry
Because this isn't an apology
It's a goodbye letter
How's the weather at the top of the world?

I'm not the one you should point your finger at
You were the one who was digging the knife in my back
Now all that stands is a broken man with a hole in his chest
Living each day trying his best

It's 2 A.M.
And I'm stuck here with this pen again
Not a single nice thought in my head
As the ink is running dry
I finally start to realize
I think it might be time to give up on you

I don't want to think about you anymore
Track Name: Ghost
Check Engine Light

I'm just a kid in a basement
With a guitar and a heavy heart
Nothing special
Nothing more to me
What you get is what you see
These strings are all I own
These songs are all I know
This island's all I've got to call a home

I'm trapped by these four walls
I sit here writing songs about the ghost of you and me
I waste away my days
I've nothing left to say
An empty shell of the man I used to be
Chasing memories that don't remember me
I never cared for them anyway

When you wake up in the A.M. turn on your radio
I hope you hear me playing the songs you'll never know
Because all you hear is what you want
You're a ghost that loves to haunt

Get out
Track Name: Overworked and Underpaid
Check Engine Light
"Overworked and Underpaid"

I'm 21 with a handgun pointed at the heart of hope
And I suck all the life from the things I love the most
Get busy living or get busy dying
I'll take this sip and I'm done with trying

Hey boys, this one's on me
So make noise and leave your feet
Because you know I've had it up to here
I've had it up to here

I'm 9 to 5
Ain't got no time
Or a dime to show
And my whole life's upside down
I'm burning out
Never seem to make up my mind
I'm getting out of here
Can't stay home
I'll figure all this out on my own

Clock in. Clock out.
Every single day
But I was born and raised to be a part of something great
I'm overworked and underpaid
Maybe someday I'll live just like a king
But I'm just a boy with his foolish dreams
Track Name: Prodigal
Check Engine Light

I'm sorry to see you leave
I'm upset to say the least
Will I see you again before the world ends?
Because seasons will come and go
I just want to let you know I'll be thinking about you all the time
Don't forget to write about everything you wanted
And how you've come to find it's a lie
Because everything you really needed was right in front of your two eyes
