zeke Heard this song via the Current in MPLS. Really liked it. Looked Bruise Violet up, learned a little about them, bought the album and listen to it on repeat often. Favorite track: I Cried for 45 Minutes Because of Passive Aggressive Guinea Pigs.

Wesley Meier I love the energy and lyrics of this entire album. i feel like the songs could have had a different balance between the vocals and music. all of it is good and i am sure live it is at its finest but I would like to see this band create their art with someone else recording it. Favorite track: I Cried for 45 Minutes Because of Passive Aggressive Guinea Pigs.

Track Name: Sketchy Jeff
La, la la la, la la la la, la la....

I see you standing there, you're on the side of the road
You fucked up your life
I wish I never knew you

You're just a liar, a fucking liar
I wanna throw you down
and spit on your grave

Don't you ever say, don't you ever say
"I told you so, I told you so,
I know I did"

You think you own it all?
You think you rule the world?
Well I'll show you what it's like to get your ass kicked by a girl

You're just a liar, a fucking liar
I want to throw you down
and spit on your grave

Don't you ever say, don't you ever say
"I told you so, I told you so,
I know I did"

I, I, I
I hate your guts

Don't you ever say, don't you ever say
"I told you so, I told you so,
I know I did"

(I see you standing there, you're on the side of the road
You fucked up your life
I wish I never knew you

You're just a liar, a fucking liar
I wanna throw you down
and spit on your grave)
Track Name: I Cried for 45 Minutes Because of Passive Aggressive Guinea Pigs
You walked right in the room
With a smile on your face
You said I could trust you
But you've fallen from grace

You stabbed me in the back
You left me out to die
And now my friend, I need to ask you why

Answer your god damn phone when I'm trying to call

Ah, ah ah, eeeEeEe
I'm trying to fix this mess you left

Your smile, your words, your face
There's nothing left for me to say
I tried to warn you
But you didn't change a thing

So now I give to you
My fist in your fucking face
So now tell me
why you say

Answer your god damn phone when I'm trying to call

Ah, ah ah, eeeEeEe
I'm trying to fix this mess you left

That smile you wear on your lips, so cold
I bet you thought that I would
Well, I'd catch on

And I bet you thought that I
Would make that sacrifice
And I'm here to tell you why

Answer your god damn phone when I'm trying to call

Ah, ah ah, eeeEeEe
I'm trying to fix this mess you left
Track Name: Maybe You're the Problem
Excuses, excuses
That's all that I hear
It's useless, It's useless
To decieve me, dear

But I know, But I know
You're so hard to blame
Denial, denial
It's always the same

Get your ass out of bed
It's all in your head
And I can finally see
Maybe it's you and not me

Fake mental state, mental state
You should know that we're through
You're filled with hate, filled with hate
Consuming you

Tell all your friends, all your friends
That I'm a bitch
This is the end, is the end
I'm done with you

Get your ass out of bed
It's all in your head
And I can finally see
Maybe it's you and not me

Sorry for whatever I said
But it's time you own up to it too
Don't make me pity you
'Cause I already do

Get your ass out of bed
It's all in your head
And I can finally see
Maybe it's you and not me (x2)

Get your ass
Out of bed
And I can finally see
Maybe you're the, maybe you're the problem
Track Name: Wasted
With everything that's left
The words left poorly said
Everything considered, it's been
Wasted wasted

I'm on deaf ears again
I'm up in tears again
Can't help but think it's all been
Wasted wasted

Tried to play pretend
I tried to make it end
Despite my efforts, it's been
Wasted wasted

Fucked it up again
I'm out of luck again
Those weeks locked up again are
Wasted wasted

How can I even complicate things for the two of us?
How could I even compromise what I believe in?
I cannot let it pass me by
Why does it hurt so bad every fucking time?

With everything that's left
The words left poorly said
Everything considered, it's been
Wasted wasted

Open ears again
I'm up in tears again
Can't help but think it's all been
Wasted wasted

I tried to play pretend
I tried to make it end
Despite my efforts, it's been
Wasted wasted

Fucked it up again
I'm out of luck again
Those weeks locked up again are
Wasted wasted

Wasted, wasted (x2)

How could you expect me to let it all out?
And I can't even scream without a doubt
And I don't want to become another face
Another wreck that's taken up too much space

With everything that's left
The words left poorly said
Everything considered, it's been
Wasted wasted

Fell on deaf ears again
I'm up in tears again
Can't help but think it's all been
Wasted wasted

I tried to play pretend
I tried to make it end
Despite my efforts, it's been
Wasted wasted

Fucked it up again
I'm out of luck again
Those weeks locked up again are
Wasted wasted

Wasted, wasted (x2)

I can't
Believe I'm back here again
Blood on the floor again
My hands on my knees again

And I can't
Believe my throat is sore again
Everything I worked for turns to rust

I don't know where I can go
When everything's crumbling down
i scream at the top of my lungs
to get the fuck out

Oh, don't come any closer

I can't believe I'm bending over here again
Looking at the piece of shit I've become
And I can't let you back in again
'Cause I've come too far

Was it the sparkle in your eyes?
The beauty in your lies?
I guess I'll never know
I scream at the top of my lungs
to get the fuck out

Oh don't come any closer

Oh don't come any closer
