Track Name: Mind
Tuesday
morning
Soft cry
warning
Telling me
to stay inside
The secret runaways
inside my mind

Fears of
cold air
Blue eyed
ice stare
Telling me it’s all fine
Let’s runaway from your mind tonight

Breathing
moonlight
Cycled
tired tries
Escaping to another world
Another world
Track Name: Summer Nights
Time is in reverse
Minutes fade into my age
Soft skin against mine
A paradox of my desires

A real world escape
My thoughts can fade away
My shadow sinks under my sheets
The earth stays round today

Magnetism pulls me in
A comfort swells inside my chest
Venus rushes through my eyes
Can we just run away tonight
Feel my heart and shock my spine
A calling deeper than myself
I want this more thanI can breathe
Just feel with me

A real world escape
My thoughts can fade away
My shadow sinks under my sheets
The earth stays round today
Track Name: Balcony
I saw my body fall
right off your balcony
back when my flesh was warm
and I was losing sleep

Right when you pushed me off
My hand it brushed the rail
your net to catch me on
was filled with thorns and severed leaves

A bumbling nervous twitch
a stumble to the floor
now it’s a miracle
that I can walk at all

And you
I thought you’d carry me till my heart gave out
but you
just pulled me to my knees

A body broken down
my vision blurred to all
the helpful boats and sails
glued to your waterfall

A common injury
the blood soaked to my back
sometimes I wish that I
could find that thing I lack

And you
I thought you’d carry me till my heart gave out
but you
just pulled me to my knees
And you
I guess you never knew what I cared about
So you
Just pulled me to my knees

If you could take it all back, well then would you?
If I could take it all back, well I wouldn’t.

And you
I thought you’d carry me till my heart gave out
but you
just pulled me to my knees
And you
I guess you never knew what I cared about
So you
Just pulled me to my knees
Track Name: Mellow
Cool mellow house
that I just wanted to sleep in
Soft flower blouse
so I decided to keep it

Quiet alone time
that I just wanted to bathe in
Just so I can dream for
Some way I can be sure

If you tell me that’s alright
I’ll buy your lie

The sun’s not out
so I decided to sleep in
but that’s alright
I figured it’s for the best

So I can’t see
when that decided to creep in
But possibly I know
where my eyes should follow

If you tell me that’s alright
I’ll buy your lie
Track Name: Dear Stephanie
Dear Stephanie
I’ve got a lot to say
a big story to tell
I hope you listen well

First you smiled
and guided me to a quiet place where
we ran along the rocks
and cried beneath the clouds

We were alone
a trail we left behind
it rained upon our jackets but
we sprint for cover under huts

Yesterday
You held my hand and led me out the door
But today
I know to call you back for something more

Now I know
The time we lost our home and
our rooms were all but storage bins
we kept for lover’s sake

Writing down
the livelihood we held
a game of distraction
to spark a warm reaction

Yesterday
You held my hand and led me out the door
But today
I know to call you back for something more
Track Name: 38th St.
Let’s run into the air tonight
feet tumbling hard
Forget another sleepless night
mind falling apart

Just stare into the street lights glittering
and cars riding past
Forget about abysmal times
alone in your head

My pills are breaking
My heart is racing

Now it’s up to the scavenger’s stream
whatever piques my interest
Just fell back, not sure what it means
maybe I’m just defeatist

A graceful shadow in the night,
eyes grasping for more
A billion blades flow consciously tonight
urging encores

The numbness makes a softer blanket still
invincible ride
The memories locked inside their skull
buried record times

My pills are breaking
My heart is racing

Now it’s up to the scavenger’s stream
whatever piques my interest
Just fell back, not sure what it means
maybe I’m just defeatist
And I’m freezing in this winter
but I’ll head south before the dawn
I’ll just incur the interest
looking for strength to carry on

I gave a call out, won’t you come?
I screamed I fell down, won’t you come?
I tore my eyes out, won’t you come?
If my legs give out, won’t you come?
I ripped my heart out, won’t you come?
My vision’s blacked out, won’t you come?

My pills are breaking
My heart is racing

Now it’s up to the scavenger’s stream
whatever piques my interest
Just fell back, not sure what it means
maybe I’m just defeatist
And I’m freezing in this winter
but I’ll head south before the dawn
I’ll just incur the interest
looking for strength to carry on
Track Name: Too Much Too Fast
Listen well,
give me a sign
Tell me to get to the other side

Times of question,
times of pain,
let’s look like
we’re not insane

Abyss in glitter
knell will ring
We’re not looking for the net gain

Look into the next minute or 2
That’s when I’m hoping I’ll find you

Free me
I’ve got to just let go of this
Feeling
I’m ripping all my posters off the
Ceiling
It’s all going too much too fast
Too much too much too fast
Too much too much too fast

Trickling days
standard of time
but they keep saying we’ll be alright
Crack your bones, bite your nails,
while they’re an enigma riding coattails

Free will, fate?
Where do you stand?
It’s so unnatural to choose by someone else’s hand
Sleeping still,
silent our eyes
Fatal impressions, it’s a big mistake to undermine

Free me
I’ve got to just let go of this
Feeling
I’m ripping all my posters off the
Ceiling
It’s all going too much too fast
Too much too much too fast
Too much too much too fast

Engross us
Track Name: Lexi You're a Good Girl
Lexi you’re a good girl
You always treat me right
Never thought me annoying
or called me uptight

And Lexi I adore you
You’re always on my side,
and that time you went and left me,
I nearly went and died
that night

I couldn’t help it,
my mind a foreign trap
It was restless, angry, fearful
and no way to adapt

So now I’ve come to question
the chemistry of life
if you can call the undead living,
but I’ll be home tonight

God I can't get out of bed
I'll do nothing instead
Smoke some more to clear my head
I could call this living dead

But come to think of angels
I’d seen some overnight
they handed me a bass guitar
and told me things would be alright

Nothing much to do but think
just maybe they’ll be right
but I’m not too much for thinking now
it’s do or fucking die

God I can't get out of bed
I'll do nothing instead
Smoke some more to clear my head
I could call this living dead

But baby know I love you
I want to stick around
'Cause polaroids and memory voids
Just aren’t the same somehow
I can’t make any promises,
just choices here and now
But I’ll make the choice to stay here,
just go ahead and lay here

God I can't get out of bed
I'll do nothing instead
Smoke some more to clear my head
I could call this living dead
