Track Name: ...promise you'll let go of me.
everything I said about common interest
makes more sense with our tongue-in-cheek context
that we both lived our lives in.

I’m losing place, saving face for the one i love.
i don’t need a saving grace--i need to be alone for a change.

I need less of this i miss you complex.
I need to be alone for a change.

you can tell me all your life stories,
and i'll try my best not to get upset.

i saw you hanging over
the lake last night,
like water thoughts spill
down a well i can’t fill.
then i knew
i needed you.
sink into the sea,
i can’t swim but need to breathe.
promise you’ll let go of me.
Track Name: Routine
i've been counting in sixes--
wishing i could help it.
give me insight,
can you help me delve in
to the fight in my head?
prison in my own skin.

can you shed,
shed some light on this?
these routines are empty
i’m caving in.
i’m falling into routines again.

things i cant control
take their toll.
I've been digging graves
for parts of me i did not know.

sick of counting sixes.
sick of seeing headstones.
sick of all my vices.
sick of breaking all my bones.
Track Name: Pity Party
i'm afraid to hit the road,
though its favorite place to go.
i'm afraid that i love you most,
and that i won't have a place to come home to
after i go.
i'm worried that you won't wake up
in the mornings longing for
more.

because this is all for you.

i'm afraid to hit the road,
though its favorite place to go.
i'm afraid that i love you most,
and that i won't have a place to come home to
after i go.
i'm worried that you will find a new favorite,
and what if he or she
are better than me?
what if he or she
are better than me?

i promise that this isn't a pity party.
it's just a pitiful get together.
"get it together"
"get it together"
"get it together"
"get it together"
get it together after i go.

after i go,
promise me you'll still be
everything i call home.
"go back home"
"go back home"
"go back home"
(i promise i'll forget you)
go back home after i go.
Track Name: Burgundy
i dont feel safe.
i dont feel sane.
panic attacks at the thought of your name.
you are the drug i used to abuse.
you were the rope I just tied the noose.

you've never been new to me,
just the same old thing.
i'm sick of playing your mind games,
made me sleep to get away,
said that you'd change,
and then beg me to stay.

i dont feel safe.
i dont feel sane.
panic attacks at the thought of your name.
you are the drug i used to use.
you were the rope I just tied the noose.

I don't feel much.
i broke a leg like you told me,
and used you as a crutch.
I've got my own stigmas,
i dont need your love.
i need to see the present not only what was.

I'm sick and I'm tired--
guess i was the liar.
i lit the match,
but you were the fire

everything is new to me
since I've been asleep.
creeping in my dreams.
please let this comatose leave.

i dont feel safe.
i dont feel sane.
panic attacks at the thought of your name.
you are the drug i used to abuse.
you were the rope I just tied the noose.
Track Name: lullabye.
if these things always come in waves then I'm
I’m drowning.

if you say it’ll get better some day then i'll
i’ll learn to swim.

if you see me struggling
would leap in to help me?



the moon looks better over the lake.
i think i might stay,

but if i wash up on the beach
would you even stop to see

the sand and algae hanging from me?
would you try to help me breathe?

☁︎

would you please tell me my last ‘goodnights”?
would you sing me my final lullabies?



or would you leave me asleep by the sea?
