Track Name: This Year's Oil Beach
It took a point in breaking
for them to take this skin from me
my stomach burns; i'm shaking
there's no sympathy in this driver's seat

it took some lessons in hatred
before i sunk that hole in one

like cellphones in the sand at 2 a.m.

it took my fist into some metal
before i truly felt broke
nihilistic nothing
spent today trying to cope
