Track Name: Just a Placeholder
These days I'm just a placeholder until the real me gets here.
Sunlight is going by so fast. How did it ever disappear?

I'm running out of things to say convincing you I'm not a waste.
I want to instantly hear back... let's save it for another day.

Now I am filling up a space with words that I cannot erase,
And this is where argument lives.
I line up in a length queue important things I've left to do,
And I can feel them all slip away.

These days I'm just a placeholder until someone who's real gets here.
I thought I would betray my past. Turns out I never could see clear.
Track Name: Take Away the Steering Wheel
You ask me if I had planned on this, but you know that I did.
Maybe I'd let you set a path for me... when I've lost my means to.
I'm trailing, falling so far behind, and there's no way that I'll catch up
to the speed required to be happily on the will to see through.

So take away the steering wheel.

I told you that I could handle this, even though I never could.
When given many opportunities, they'll up and leave... just like you.
You push me, giving me candidness that I don't want, because you made it.
Why can't you let me have my apathy?
It's all that I can seem to...

Driving me toward the spot I always said I want to stop.
To stretch my legs, relax all day,
Yet still I want to leave this place.
Unqualified to drive a friend, you shouldn't make this choice again.
Endangering the way you feel, so take away the steering wheel.
