Track Name: Wrung Out
Wrung out in the mind
Hand caught in the hive
Blanks drawn into crooked lines
All I need is some peace and quiet

You’re all I hear, it’s like you’re
Wrung out in the mind
Hand caught in the hive
Blanks drawn into crooked lines
All I need is some peace and quiet

But you’re all I hear, it’s like you’re screaming in both ears

My mistake, I thought we were better off this way.
Everything in its place.
I want to feel this everyday.
Track Name: Keep Me Under
A bitter mind won’t keep my lungs full
A bitter mind won’t keep my limbs, keep my limbs whole
Nevermind reaping what I’ve sown
A bitter mind won’t make my days, make my days slow down

My days slow down

I watch them burn in my hand
I love the heat enough to not let go, I’ll hold too long
Until it burns in my hand
The weight of all my vices, laid out one by one, to keep me under

Wait - I tried to hide my past away
I put my demons in their place
But wound up being my own prey
Forever lying wide awake

Burn in my hand
I love the heat enough to not let go, I’ll too long
Until it burns in my hand
The weight of all my vices, laid out one by one, to keep me under

A bitter mind won’t keep my lungs full
A bitter mind won’t keep my limbs, keep my limbs whole
Nevermind reaping what I’ve sown
A bitter mind won’t make my days, make my days slow down.
Track Name: Gaze
All in due time, I’ll learn to get my head right
All in the way you love to keep your facts straight
Lines crossed and redefined, I’ve learned I’ve got to keep my mind made
Migraines and tight-lipped lies, we’ll dig a garden bed and waste it
Alone, you gaze across and I look away

Weaving lies, who’s it hurt to get the last line?
Greedy eyes, left without someone to follow
Alone, you gaze across and I look away

I try to keep my will at bay
I try to keep my will at bay
I’d lie to keep my will at bay
I try to keep my will at bay

I try to keep my will at bay
I try to keep my will at bay
I’d lie to keep my will at bay
I try to keep my will at bay

I try to keep my will at bay
I’d lie to keep my will at bay
I’d die to keep my will at bay
I try to keep it, keep it.
Track Name: Loss Leader
I’ll wait and fail to see the world outside my view
Held up under the fear of what might come too soon

All losses leading to an early fate
Go on and brace yourself to wave another white flag
All washed together, every color is gray
I’ll go on and brace myself to wave another white flag
Or I can keep it in my head

I’ll wait and fail to see the world outside my view
Held up under the fear of what might come too soon

Just want to lay down. Ought to lay my head.
Get up and brace myself to be another lock-step
Half-baked and toxic, nothing new is said
Just get up and brace yourself to be another lock-step
No one keeps it in their head

I’ll wait and fail to see the world outside my view
Held up under the fear of what might come too soon
Track Name: Unglued
Haunted by your new moon, I came unglued
I moved my bed to the other room
Was it too soon?
To relearn to speak your name, and rearrange
The endless void I can’t will away, however long I wait

Meanwhile, caught in a trance on the off chance
I see that sign on the overpass
Can’t take a different path

Haunted by your new moon, I came unglued
I moved my bed to the other room
My altered view is in my head, it’s in my way
I can’t get it straight.
I never want to feel your pain, however long it takes

You never tried to wait.
I felt your wisdom fade, no matter how tight I held on.

I watched your new moon wake.
Feels like the tides have changed, taking back everything I love.
Track Name: Shudder
Watched you waste away, wide awake and feeling dead
Fake a wide smile and try to navigate your end
What a long way out, tripping over endless bends
I don’t long for you the same way I did back then among the constant bitter ends

What a long night I spent worried at your door
Shudder still when I hear that empty tone of voice announce another bitter end
I still shudder at the thought of your descent

All my anger will settle down someday
Lull me out to the other side
All my anger will settle down someday
Lull me out to the other side

Watched you waste away, wide awake and feeling dead
“It’ll all work out” - Replay every word you said
I don’t long for you the same way I did back then
I don’t long for you. I don’t long for you.

All my anger will settle down someday
Lull me out to the other side
Track Name: 31st Street
Don’t want to wake up in the dark
Don’t want to have to wonder where you are
Cut like a hot knife to the bone
The sound the walls make when you’re not home

Paralyzed, wait for the call
Phone rings, I drag myself into the hall
So quick to drown under the weight
How could you leave me that way?

No, I don’t read much anymore
All your things laid out on the floor
No, I can’t think about much anymore
All of my hope lost on the shore

“I took the last bus to the lake
Only way to finally ease my pain.
Down in the white-hot churning waves
Sorry to leave you that way”

I wonder where you are
Don’t want to think about it anymore
I wonder where you’ll go
Don’t want to wake up unless you’re home

I wonder where you are
Don’t want to think about it anymore
I wonder where you’ll go
Don’t want to wake up unless you’re home
Home
Track Name: Lean
I don’t want to go home early, set a new routine
I wouldn’t do your bidding, no, I’d do it all for me
But I’ll wait a while and lay my ego down

Know when to bend the rules and sleep under an ironed sheet
I won’t give out my burdens, no, they’re reserved for me
So I’ll wait a while, until we all unwind

Go on, fit me into a mold
You know I want to be the one to do you wrong

Lean into another golden knife
Bleed until there’s no fear in your eyes

Go on, fit me into a mold
You know I want to be the one to do you wrong

Go on, fit me into a mold
You know I want to be the one to do you wrong
Track Name: Already Low
Out of words, there’s just nothing left to say
Unlearned, I just take another way
Take another way, nothing left to say

Guilt grows and it’s digging at your faith
Slow burn, you just take it day by day
Take it day by day,

Digging at your faith, already low
I’m not awake long enough to know

Fear lives in an unassuming place
Once out, there’s no hiding it away
No hiding it away in an unassuming place

Clock spins and its digging at your faith
One slip and you’re counting all the ways
Counting all the ways

It’s digging at your faith, already low
I’m not awake long enough to know

Digging up your grave, already low
Too many days away from your glow
I’m not awake long enough to know
Track Name: Unending
I don’t want to see your worth
Wrap it up, hide it away from me
No, I don’t see that much at all these days
And I wonder if you’re the same

I don’t want to feel you out
Decipher every word out of your mouth
No, I don’t feel that much at all these days
And I wonder if you’re the same

Caught in a maze, unending
I wasn’t there to be what you needed me to be
Under a weight, oppressing
I bent without a break, and you were a world away

I don’t want to hear your voice
Cutting through all of the white noise
No, I don’t hear that much at all these days
And I wonder why I’m this way?

Caught in a maze, unending
I wasn’t there to be what you needed me to be
Under a weight, oppressing
I bent without a break, and you were a world away

I don’t want to feel you out
Decipher every word out of your mouth
No, I don’t feel that much at all these days
Just get away

I don’t feel that much at all
I don’t feel that much at all these days
I don’t feel that much at all
I don’t feel that much at all these days
I don’t feel that much at all
No, I don’t feel that much at all these days
