Open Water 03:53
it’s not like I said it’s okay, but I’ve been a little fake I’m holding myself like a brick upon a still lake but I’m pretty round, and I wouldn’t drown I didn’t know I could breathe when I am faced down it’s not like I said it’s okay, but I like to stay away cause sight out of mind is fine, I don’t like to make waves in the shallow end, I never learned to swim I’ll get the courage one day when I am faced down in open water it’s not like I said it’s okay it’s not like it’s just a game it wouldn’t ruin the day to find that I’m faced-down in open water never long enough so hold me down in open water, it gives me such a rush I’m holding onto weakness only as a ploy cause nothing’s ever gonna change the way I feel when I destroy

too new to tell if you compare inflated now but losing air you make me dream so colorful my blood my head, the blue the red I cheat, I blame, I piss away but here you stay, oh what to make? so sing to me your sweetest song the one for me, so personal take my hand and take my name take it all, it's all the same I lose it mostly and I hide the rest don't analyze cause if we're being honest I prefer your version of me I must be frank, I can't contain I'm happier under your reign so sing to me just like before when you were mine and I was yours

No Matter 03:47
when I close my eyes I don’t always fall asleep dampening the mind is a fundamental need somewhere in a trance hides a curiosity cloudy at a glance though it lives inside of me senseless to hope for a life so unique there’s no rush to end when the cycles repeat deeper down the path I can function in a dream I push away the clouds, I’m the sole authority fools and their fables give moments of peace no end or beginning, cycles they keep on repeating when I’m at the door, I can show you what I know and everything I don’t fleeting and painful, a love that is sweet no end or beginning, cycles they keep on repeating when I close my eyes, there’s a lot of work to do and I get sleepy too

sunday on the clock, finished but nonstop keep it up, dangerous, hold me under no one ever feared a light so dim or broke a little skin what to do? grin and then I grin, imitation makes me feel a lunatic, I’m wise to wonder cause even when I had a steady grip you slipped and then I slipped what to do? standing on a table, suddenly I see it all it’s a lonely world, I just do my work it’s a lonely world, I don’t want to be hurt trust me, I’m a decent animal you have to tell me when I’m full oh please believe me, I’m a decent animal I just can’t do all that I’m told you may choose between yourself and me who will destroy you?
5.
So Long 03:40
you deserve a song so long it plays behind the hurt beyond the tears, beyond the courtesy of elementary melodies and chord progressions much like these to love and be loved who’d have thought it’d be so mysterious? it would be painful without bruises and subject to who chooses to pull the plug and hope that no one sinks you deserve a song so long it plays beyond the fade beyond the place where all our memories repeat into eternity preserving them so bittersweet, for better or worse what’s the harm in a little disillusion? a little rosy hue and a drink to see it through to separate my logic from my ways I can and I will move on you can and you will move on you deserve a song so long and crafted with hands of love and capability so I’ll retire, I’ll keep it brief admiring you lovingly, so long

do you ever put something on a list just to check it off? simple pleasures like decent weather do you ever set alarms in your sleep so you don't have to dream? who would do such a silly thing? I'm a character in black and white I see color and I feel so shy break my silence but don't rush me do you ever entertain someone new and in a day or two take your chances and endure glances? do you ever have it all in your palm and think that's what you want? quite romantic but I resent it
7.
Superstar 04:33
help me I’m a superstar but narrowly I’ve missed the mark drifting, fading, no regard I’ve slipped into a cycle help me please I’ve come so close I’m older now, been down that road but something keeps me in it’s hold I’ve slipped into a cycle show me all the trouble that you find show me how to thrive and take your time because I know it’s more than just a phase it’s written in my name I want someone to blame but I know it’s more than just today it’s a problem that I face I want someone to blame show me all the awfulness that hides in me I’ve been living in a toxic dream show me all the love that I so desperately need cause all in all I’m ordinary it’s strange how sun and death move together it’s strange how much I want this mood to linger

if the time was right I would take you home it would be so nice, we could be alone but we're not alone you and I have our demons we can't control but we try with our vices tonight in a perfect world I'd be a better girl I would mind my words and have hair that curls but it's not that world and it's becoming clearer with every look, every glance in the mirror you're pushing me further from you so take back your precious time it's taking over mine and I'm too blind to recognize so many things so take it back for me if I only knew what I meant to you maybe I'd be true, would not question you but that's hard to do cause it's becoming clearer that I'm abused by the things that I fear I'm pushing you further from me all that's left are silhouettes and shadows on the wall stale ashes fill the glasses on the wooden floor reminds me of a time when we would smoke indoors sleeping just enough to understand what burns, understand what pain is I understand what pain is
9.
New Heaven 05:10
careful what you seek in strangers oh I do believe in danger poison in the hand that you hold in command now don’t you feel a little thrill? portrait of a man, an island strange though how he speaks so migrant long before the split, the pieces used to fit that doesn’t mean there’s harmony how could this be so wrong for me? I know and you know the same heavens await for only those who want to change I know and you know the same heavens await for only those who want to pray for only heavens sake, I’ll pray
