about

"Old Wounds" is a metaphor for being betrayed by the ones closest to you and seeing the knife they repeatedly used to stab you in the back.

Track Name: Out of Time
You're stepping out of line
You do this every time
Track Name: Lost Cards
I'm not feeling sorry
You think that I should be
I finally stopped asking how you'd be without me
I hate to break the bad news
You only open old wounds
And after all these chances I'm still not getting through

I won't overstate it
You are so overrated
But I kept falling for the picture you painted for me
Can't overstate it
You're overrated

You lost all the cards I wrote
And keep stepping out of line
Every letter, every note
You do this every time

Don't tell me that you're worried that I'm still not sorry
You made it easy to get past all these memories
You set off all of my alarms, but I still try to play the part
And you'll come running back
Taking second chances but you never got that far

You lost all the cards I wrote
And keep stepping out of line
Every letter, every note
You do this every time
Track Name: Chicago Sunroof
Every word hit me like a ton of bricks when she said, "This is the last time. I'm through with it."
You're putting me on trial with a jury you selected
You'll convict me without a shred of evidence
Step back and look at what's in front of you
I know you won't take the blame
Tell me why I believed you when you put all backstabbers to shame
As far as I remembered, you've always looked down on me

I always seem to get myself into these situations over and over again
My back is up against the wall
I can only move forward, I'll move on from here
I learned my lesson when I watched you fall
Deeper and deeper, over and over again

I've been operating on caffeine and nicotine trying to control myself when I can't control anything
I'm like that sliver underneath your nail digging deeper every time you exhale
There's a long down, I keep falling back
It's been so long that I have no regrets
I've got a glimpse of hope and sympathy
Cause everyone will know you're bad news like me

I always seem to get myself into these situations over and over again
My back is up against the wall
I can only move forward, I'll move on from here
I learned my lesson when I watched you fall
Deeper and deeper, over and over again

Maybe it's time to go and find myself again
It's time to reassess my situation
Maybe down the road I'll find some common sense
Hopefully I'll find a quick fix for this mess

This is the consequence for backing off when you stood your ground
Now I'm just missed calls, I guess I'll see you around
Track Name: Barbed Wire Bat
So sick of all this small talk.
Step back and call this like it was.
I'm suffering from your selfishness, one thing's for sure is that I've had enough.
You hit me like an illness.
I can't take enough drugs to cure this.
You know your actions aren't a victimless crime, so it's my fault for being taken by surprise.

I never thought you were a liar.
I guess I'm just naive cause somewhere down the line you stabbed me in the back and twist the knife.

I only wanted to be someone that you admire
and then you beat my heart with a bat that you wrapped in barbed wire.
And this is overdue, this feeling will expire cause you beat my heart with a bat wrapped in barbed wire.

I got caught in your web of lies that you wove to trap me by design.
When will you realize you can't spend your whole life picking fights?
Do you remember when we first met?
I never thought that I'd be someone that you'd regret, but now I see the truth behind your illusion and if I don't fight back you'll still be losing me.

I never thought you were a liar.
I guess I'm just naive cause somewhere down the line you stabbed me in the back and twist the knife.

I only wanted to be someone that you admire and then you beat my heart with a bat that you wrapped in barbed wire.
And this is overdue, this feeling will expire cause you beat my heart with a bat wrapped in barbed wire.

I never thought you'd walk away at seventeen, what you took from me.
I promise you, I'll never change. I beg of you, just let me be.

I only wanted to be someone that you admire and then you beat my heart with a bat that you wrapped in barbed wire.
I only wanted to be someone that you admire
and then you beat my heart with a bat that you wrapped in barbed wire.
And this is overdue, this feeling will expire cause you beat my heart with a bat wrapped in barbed wire.
Track Name: Dead Weight
I think back to last year and remember when I thought those nights would never end
I was your crutch when you ran out of luck, but I caught on quick before you fucked it up

I should've known better than that
Now that I'm looking back, you were always a liar
I figured you out, but I still took the chance
And became another number to put out your fires

You were second at best, just a fucking mess
I don't even know why I wasted my time
It's my mistake I never put you in your place
Now I'll finally say you've always been a pile of dead weight

Let's talk about standards
They can't be too high if I keep going backwards
Losing patience like you're losing friends
I'm glad I got out quick before you dragged me in
Don't talk about standards, you have none
It's clear that you need some and I'm not the answer
You'll never see the consequence and when you self-destruct I won't be coming back

I should've known better than that
Now that I'm looking back, you were always a liar
I figured you out, but I still took the chance
And became another number to put out your fires

You were second at best, just a fucking mess
I don't even know why I wasted my time
It's my mistake I never put you in your place
Now I'll finally say you've always been a pile of dead weight
I'll always be something you can't shake

I always knew better than you when I think you just act and come up with excuses
You figured me out, but you don't have a clue
I saw through all your shit and forgot about you
It's too little too late to cover your tracks and hide your mistake
I'll finally say you've always been a pile of dead weight
