Track Name: Only Friend
Felt things change for just one day
But now it's back to the same old ways
Failure is an ocean instead of a floor
The bed is a raft floating away from the door
Swallow salt just to taste something
Heart can't push blood that's thickening
Some say it's suffocating
Say that I'm not living

Paranoia comes knocking
She's my only friend
Paranoia is here again
She's my only friend

I let my guard down to meet someone new
Said she was disappointed
Said I fucking knew
Sometimes it's suffocating
I don't feel like I'm living
Paranoia's always lingering
She's my only friend.

Paranoia comes knocking
She's my only friend
Paranoia is here again
She's my only friend
Track Name: Fed Up
Keep the lights off in the middle of the afternoon
Blue string lights are plugged in in my room
Blinds are shut, rain crashes against the house

It's a light so soft
It's life sneaking into the cold
It's the concave of a shiver
And I'm so fed up

If I open all the windows
It would be fine if it spilled in
I'll plug everything in

It's the pique that stabs the hardwood
It's the gravity gripping the shadow
It's the plaque of the artery walls
And I'm so fed up

Laying on the floor
Body, become cement
Gravity, don't let me down

Cause I'm so fed up
And I'm so fed up with hope
Track Name: Slow Down
Bent backwards
Followed the part of the hair
Bangs brushed the surface
Back broke in two

Sinking, sinking

And the ocean pulled
And the ocean pulled
And the ocean pulled
The body into the earth
Sand pouring into lungs
And the ocean pulled

Dripping
Dripping
Dripping
Like an hourglass

Pulling
Pulling
Pulling
Like quicksand

Gasping, calling for help
And suddenly you don’t know nothing
Track Name: Hey Mercy
Do I give up my fingerprints in spite trying to wash my hands of you? You'd be happy if they were scraped raw. Can't put myself together at all. Every day is a struggle trying to unlearn the traits you've embedded. And you'd prefer it best if you could chalk up my identity to Jealousy. But you begged god for Mercy, just to find that she is me. You'll be calling me an artist by the way I draw blood.
Track Name: Subtle Thrill
Sometimes it looks like help
Other times it looks like a way out
I can’t figure it out
If it’s the little things that set me off
Or if I’m just not numb enough
Temptation; I’m tempted
Hardened to stone

At least it’s the company I need
Comforting me to sleep
Shutting the curtains
And weighing the eyelids
Its black and its quiet
Covers up like a blanket
Too heavy to push off
Too engulfed to get up

Resistance and will
Embrace the subtle thrill
The uncertainty of never waking up
I’ve just been trying to quit
Whatever that means

Hurt is a commodity
Track Name: Ghost
I've been feeling like a ghost in your house and in mine
Condensation, fogging vision, just to melt away
It makes me wonder if I've passed away or been invisible this whole time

I've been feeling like a ghost in your house and in mine
It makes me wonder if I've passed away or been invisible this whole time
If you can't see now, then you never did, and you'll never see me again
Track Name: Dis s o c i  a  t   i    o     n
One certain hand
Pushing my back forward
One confident hand
Pushing my chest back
With every deep breath,
So little oxygen takes
Woke up without sleeping
Sighed without holding my
I think…

Woke up without sleeping
Sighed without holding my
Woke up without sleeping
Sighed without holding my
Woke up without sleeping
Sighed without holding my
Woke up without sleeping
Sighed without holding my
I think
At least I think

Porcelain, wet, and concrete

One certain hand
Pushing my back forward
One confident hand
Pushing my chest back
One certain hand
Pushing my back forward
Woke up without sleeping
Sighed without holding my
Track Name: Can't Relate
You got problems and take your time to solve them
But I can’t be that
Everyone’s moved on but I can’t catch up
I can’t be that

I don’t know what’s after this life
If there’s anything at all
And if there’s anything at all
I don’t know where I’m gunna go
But I know

Everyone goes through shit and gets over it
But I can’t be that
Everyone always says to just snap out of it
But that doesn't apply to me

I wish I was more resilient
Wish I didn’t harp on it
But I can’t help it

I can’t take care of this mind
That won’t take care of me
Track Name: Stray/Burnt Sugar
Wandering farther out and away
Tracing the edge of the bay

Realizing as the mountains line the way
Following taillights to motels with strays

Never feel richer than to find
That the most consistent part of this life
Is that the sun will always rise
And there’s stars in the night

Time will beg for you
Time will beg for you
Time will beg for you
Time will beg for you
Track Name: Wilt (I Won't)
You were planted there
Firm and affirmative
Hardly noticed the shadow
That only moved around you

Dancing / Aging
Dancing with the aging of the sun

Neither budging
Neither crumbling
No more cracks near our eyes from smiling
You rejected the light
You rejected the water
I thought I had to shrink with you
I thought I had to die with you
I thought I had to shrink with you
I thought I had to die with you
