Track Name: Pathos
I lost faith in everything when I lost faith in you because I could pray for a change but what could you do I know I know I know what you need you give us pain so that we can believe a father sick a mother lost oh well she’ll keep her faith so we don’t end up in hell I’ve tried my best to give you what you want but you take and take and take all I’ve got so can we take him back?
Track Name: Mondegreen
My body’s breaking under your weight I can’t find a way to make this painless I’m still fighting but I’m no longer sure why Am I really trying or am I a liar? Torn I’m torn between the life I know and the one I’ve never had the courage to live (Cut off my fingers to spite myself keep burning the candle despite my health) Worn I’m worn from the way we live (We hurt and hurt and hurt) I wish I could hide myself away but you keep throwing stones and the sound of them cracking against my bones keeps me up at night I don’t think this is how it’s supposed to be keep throwing punches till the last bell just hoping and pretending that we can hold on when we’re really afraid of what happens when you let go (I should be pushing you away but I can’t let go)
Track Name: Embers
I think this is the last time I’ll find the right words to say my mind created a spectrum of future scenarios and all of them end the same way we’re no longer the same and it all plays out in my head playing with fire in the woods by your house I’ve become the embers left on the ground I’m the evidence of your arson and you’ll forget to put me out I’m left behind to burn out I know the winter is harsh up north I never thought you’d come back so cold
Track Name: Sibling (The Devil & Fern)
You left fingerprints on porcelain skin they lingered in a dark blue tint you festered in my mind it sickens me to ever have stood by your side you’re the knife stuck inside my guts and it twists at the sound of your name how can you sleep at night knowing of all you desecrate? I tried to keep this bridge standing but now I’m the one lighting matches and I’m so tired of waiting for something to rise from the ashes we were never bound by blood mine always covered your hands this has been burning my insides like the rum when I slept on your floor back when a good man concealed himself at your core there will be traces of you in the chills that run down my nerves and maybe years down the road we’ll both get what we deserve I tried to keep this bridge standing but now I’m the one lighting matches and I’m so tired of waiting for something to rise from the ashes we were never bound by blood mine always covered your hands we’ll bury you but we won’t mark a grave
Track Name: Gogo
Nostalgia what do you want from me this time? I know the reasons why you come around but it’s too late I’m burying you alive in the lonely grave of Paula Schultz you stomped me out knowing what would happen but you didn’t know what would happen to you so you may think I’m being sadistic but Kiddo this is me at my most masochistic Nostalgia which “R” are you filled with? I think I know what you will say maybe years down the road you’ll still feel regret but today I feel relief you stomped me out knowing what would happen but you didn’t know what would happen to you so you may think I’m being sadistic but Kiddo this is me at my most masochistic muscle memory I can’t forget I’m now prepared to take my fifth step
Track Name: Bee
So far removed from the sound but it’s still ringing out over the cries of the ones who lost it all and you told me you were dying but I could call you today if I wanted to the whole world wasn’t your enemy I was never your enemy and he died the night you wished he would but I never told you I knew it wouldn’t faze you and the questions still remain like why couldn’t you call me? I thought I deserved that much the whole world wasn’t your enemy I was never your enemy you claimed that you could see you told me it was always clear the whole world wasn’t your enemy I was never your enemy
Track Name: Poseur
I’m not fine so thanks for not asking it’s been so long since you asked anything but I can’t talk from the smoke in my lungs and I can’t sleep I’m thinking too much I’m scared but are you happy? It’s harder to wake up than to sleep it’s harder to realize what I need I’m not fine so thanks for not asking it’s been so long since I’ve heard you speak but I can pretend that I’m getting better so I’ll just pretend cause that’s progress to me
Track Name: 440
Enough is enough he heard himself say must I always give and never receive? They say that silence is golden but these days it’s been an enemy eyes are open in the dark a bed for two but there’s only one is this all there is he whispers or is life more? And if I hit 440 no I’m never coming home so many people don’t know what it means to sacrifice yourself for something real have you ever lived if you’ve never tried have you ever known love? When I was young I wish I knew what I had the whole world there in the palm of my hand I kept searching for something different never gave it a chance And if you want me to go then that’s what I’ll do if you want me out of your life that’s what I’ll do cut my hair and clean myself up put together start giving a fuck work these hands harder than they’ve ever worked before and we could drive this car to nowhere listening to freedom and your beating heart for you all for you and if you’re fucking with me I hope you never stop
Track Name: w.a.s
We're all sad
Track Name: Carlada
A lack of breath keeps me hiding from what I know to stop a heart you need to break the ones it loves I knew you saw this could change everything I am you made sure that I never lost control I’ll take the blame cause I’m not the same I know you feel alone you know that I’m still here so I’ll take the blame inside out you watched me break and fall apart I wasn’t strong you held the weight for both of us I fell so far I couldn’t hear you anymore you saved my life but it’s too late to let you know I’ll take the blame cause I’m not the same I know you feel alone you know that I’m still here so I’ll take the blame
