Track Name: I Drink Water
I cannot blame myself

goal’s not to kill time
we’re collecting all the pieces make sure they’re all mine
hysterics are a nice sign
find all the right places at exactly the right time
driven to a state of mind
get frantic with you darling does it scare you sometimes

I cannot blame myself

if i am the person that i’ve always wanted to be
i cannot be held to it because i am not really me we
keep on pressing the question of our own self identity we’re
falling in and out of love with myself
Track Name: Black Toe
yes i know i've only had it for a few days
and the formula is simple but it's too great

maybe this the moment that we start breaking things
cuz laughing in your bed doesn't seem more of the same thing
how come every season i get stuck rewaiting
grow it out don't get bruised this time
so i cross all the water in the air i find the space to breath
soon enough become my father's daughter
struggle with the similarities

yes i know i've only had it for a few days
and the formula is simple but it's too great

even now there's still is no point remembering
this indian summer lasting straight through spring
you ask me how i feel about everything changing
i just don't want to be nickel and dimed
cuz we're sacrificing things long ago decided
a friend of a friend is no friend of mine
i've becoming my mother's daughter
understanding all the intricacies

couldn't have told me
fleeting longevity
just cuz we're stoney
doesn't make us lonely

yes i know i've only had it for a few days
and the formula is simple but it's too great
Track Name: Human
didn't love her
should have told her
winter's bad enough without the cold shoulder
couldn't keep her
didn't need her
you're as black as coal and I am the heater
bad defenses
consequences
living no regrets requires strong offensive
don't lose your stance
(pretend) to want to dance
if we'd succumb to change to change would there be any difference?
I refer to myself to much
I just don't really care about us
let me just wander and touch and lust
because I am human is that not enough/ can I not evolve?
Should I trust? Cuz Sunday's lame without your fuck?
Track Name: Flat Rabbit
It’s like forgetting forgetting the world
sometimes i’m ready i’m ready for war
but mostly i don’t really know what i’m feeling cuz i’ve never felt it before
and i’m sorry i keep crying bout epistemology and religion cuz to me it really means much more

i don’t care if it’s cold i want to stand with my nose up at orion
and with my head against your face i can’t even being to tell if you are lying
would the world be a better place if we were all just mean
cuz by making face to some i should feel guilty i’m the one that is facilitating feelings that should not be seen

driving down cherrytown
when i almost hit that bunny is that god frowning
see my body hit the ground
and i know this sounds morbid but it is not that frightening
and flashing back i know i let some of you down maybe broke some of you hearts but i swear i want you smiling now
realize the particularity in that i feel more anxious leaving than i did arriving

i don’t care if it’s cold i want to stand with my nose up at orion
and with my head against your face i can’t even being to tell if you are lying
would the world be a better place if we were all just mean
cuz by making face to some i should feel guilty i’m the one that is facilitating feelings that should not be seen/
and is it self doubt or mistrust that we all think we’ll mess it up just like the person we were would when we were 17
Track Name: Slumber
I know that things pull you down, that's fine
and we've got the real world to deal with at sometime
but since i've got you here now, don't slip away

and with the shadows all dark, can only feel you there
take the need to to be quiet to whisper in your ear
and if i squeeze your hand it means more than i could at one point say

yeah, i know the sky is dark, it happens every day
and that the bed's all warm, cuz i made it that way
but since i'm here now, just listen while you lay


don't fret if your head seems past tense
you only feel that in its absence
and don't take your dreamy demoner
as a sign you shouldn't be here
and right now, you may feel like you're floating
just promise to take me where you're going

baby, please stay awake
only say it cuz summer's done
but the only star on this earth is you

and i'm watching the clock to see
if your eyes are fluttering
and maybe when the birds sing you're finally through

and if what's said was everything
hold you to my chest hear it ring
if you want something more, that's fine, I'll make up words to say to you

i think that i'll always love you, i swear, won't make you swear too
but i'm as good to you here as i am in there so stay..awake
