Track Name: Misery-Punk Ruined My Life
I tried to write an optimistic song
But the words got twisted and it came out wrong
And all the hopeful words that I could have said
Got knotted by my hopeless tongue instead

How can there be so many good things?
How can none of these good things come to mind?
I’m trying hard to pull my heartstrings
But I’m tripping on the lines

I tried to write a love song
But my heart turned black and it came out wrong
Instead of all the ways that I care about you
I can only sing about the hell I put you through

Now it’s sounding like a gimmick
Now it’s starting to sound just like a fad
I wish I had some other lyric
But when you’ve never been happy then it’s all you have

Why must I be so miserable?
Why are misery and I inseparable?
I swear I want to write something
I swear I want to be someone better
But I get tangled with the letters
And I can never tie the words together
Misery
Misery

I tried to write a miserable song
But the chords hit a stroke and it came out wrong
Lock it up lock it up with a major key
So nobody can understand the misery

Why must I be so miserable?
Why are misery and I inseparable?
I swear I want to write something
I swear I want to be someone better
But I get tangled with the letters
And I can never tie the words together
Misery
Misery
Track Name: Worst In The Mornings
Woke up from a fractured dream of a sleepless night
Woke up to face the nightmare of a brightening sky
An alarm in your head, ringing heart echoing with dread, bloodshot eyes
Woke up with the terror of the thought of going outside

But you’ve got a list of things you’ve gotta get done today
Of all the things that you should’ve done yesterday
Piling up, riling up with every delay
You know

It’s worst
In the mornings
When it hurts
Without warning
You could stay cowering in your room
But the whole world’s towering over you
Cause it’s worst in the mornings

Bury your head in the pillow or in the sand
Bury your thoughts in the grip of your shaking hands
Just a dark silhouette trying hard to take it step by step, if you could stand
Then you can bury your heart in the mask of a smiling man

Oh son oh sun what have you done?
Just another burning challenge to overcome
All your troubles, and your struggles you have to confront
You know

It’s worst
In the mornings
When it hurts
Without warning
You could stay cowering in your room
But the whole world’s towering over you
Cause it’s worst in the mornings

Tomorrow can’t come quick enough
This is worse than yesterday
And tomorrow you will say the same
And the day after until maybe one day
You’ll face up to what’s in front of you
And stop putting off your plans
And take a knife to your wrist so you don’t have to spend
Another day in the life you can’t fucking stand
Track Name: Love Is A Noose For Two
Another aspiration that’s doomed for failure
A chokehold in the arms of embrace
So raise your glass to the unhappy couple
Throw away your life and throw your bouquet

Down the aisle, down the rabbit hole
A dead-end road all have walked and wed
In sickness and health as you both shall live
Until you’re made to wish you were dead

Get a job, get married
Get a house, reminisce
Have kids, get buried
There must be more to life than this

Make the leap
An afterthought, of the darkness we fell into
Lo-o-ove is a noose for two
Stick out your neck
Tie the knot, become entangled till we turn blue
Lo-o-ove is a noose for two

As the happiness fades away with the years
And the bitterness starts to augment
In your houses built on foundations of debt
Homes built to cover resentment

Insecurities build up with time
Ticking bomb of mutual loathing
And every step you take is like a fucking landmine
Here’s to your simmering betrothing

Get a job, get married
Get a house, reminisce
Have kids, get buried
There must be more to life than this
There must be more to life than this
There must be more to life than this
There. Must. Be. More. To. Life

Make the leap
An afterthought, of the darkness we fell into
Lo-o-ove is a noose for two

Stick out your neck
Tie the knot, become entangled till we turn blue
Lo-o-ove is a noose for two

Here’s to another failed union
Here’s to another rolling stone
Here’s to your dated institution
Here’s to your future broken home

She was hanging high with me
She was hanging high with me
We were hanging high
