Track Name: parking lot
she crashed her car in a parking lot
said oh man, i don't got
insurance and this is quite the situation
her long blonde hair tied in a knot
as she let herself starve to death
while her twin sister was smoking meth
amphetamine
she says, "i like all the colors except for yellow,
it's just too happy for me"

around these parts we all want something
to be seen for who we are
to never fall apart
again

she's everything i never wanted to be
She shows them what she's capable of
they tear her down and knock her off
they break her bones and fuck her up
but girl you know you've got something special
something that everyone sees in you
except yourself

around these parts we all want something
to be seen for who we are
to never fall apart
again

she put herself through hell
but never got to the other side
the beautiful side
she walks into the ocean, waist-deep in the tide
articulates her pain
percolates down the drain

around these parts we all want something
to be seen for who we are
to never fall apart
again
Track Name: headstrong
I'm holding on to a steady hand, falling
My tongue is tied but my favorite lips are calling
This is the best kind of desperate for attention
This is the best kind of desperate for attention
Nothing to do but run in this rat race
You don't know you're my saving grace
This is the worst kind of wishing for redemption
This is the worst kind of wishing for redemption
Now

So I'm standing at the edge of the world
Waiting for you to come back down
From so high where you've been stranded
Head up in the clouds
Well I'm so
Eager for the weekend
So I can
Crawl back into
Some unfamiliar arms

Weary lungs are running impatient
Oxygen is so overrated
This is the best kind of coexistence
This is the best kind of coexistence
Blurry vision is common in the evenings
But I don't mind cause there's nothing worth seeing
I’ve always been so inconsistent
We’ve always been so inconsistent

So I'm standing at the edge of the world
Waiting for you to come back down
From so high where you've been stranded
Head up in the clouds
Well I'm so
Eager for the weekend
So I can
Crawl back into
Some unfamiliar arms

I told you time and time again
We’re better off as friends
But I never meant a word I said
You told me we’ll both fade away
Is that supposed to be comforting
And then you said to me

You're too
Headstrong
Now or never
Well so long
So long
To forever
(4x)
Track Name: static regrets
Ignoring the problem
That’s holding me hostage
Keeping me captive inside my head
Ignoring the voices
Ignoring the choices
To free me from this daze I’m in

I’m running on empty
Physically, spiritually,
I’m drained of all
Of all my emotion
Of all my devotion
To everything i’ve ever held

Dear in my arms
Won’t you catch me off guard
Won’t you give me your word and your life
I’ll keep you close, tell you I love you most
Tell you I’ll never leave

But one day I’ll leave you
I’ll lie and deceive you
I promise it’s happened every time
It’s just something typical
Something irrational
That makes me feel alive

Makes me feel on fire
I’m on fire
Track Name: part of me will always yearn for you
goodbye dreamer
close your eyes
and sing me a lullaby
tonight
goodbye beauty
change your mind
leave me by myself
tonight

i told you i’m not coming back
no we can’t change the past
tied to the memories like train tracks
days will come and they will fade
they’ll leave us reverberating
wishing there was something more to say

goodbye dreamer
close your eyes
and sing me a lullaby
tonight
goodbye beauty
change your mind
leave me by myself
tonight

goodbye heaven
close your gates
change your locks
and throw the key away

i told you this won’t last forever
broken promises kept us together
things will end soon
i told you this just don’t make sense
we’ll always end before we begin
that’s me and you

goodbye lover
close your lungs
sing me a swan song
at once

goodbye dreamer
close your eyes
and sing me a lullaby
tonight
goodbye beauty
change your mind
leave me by myself
tonight
Track Name: restless minds think alike
now your hair's cut short like it used to be
i don't miss you but you don't miss me
now you're in brooklyn smoking weed
and i'm back home in my small city

we were restless and careless
we were everything and nonetheless
we came apart like broken seams

now your lungs are black and mine are gray
i wouldn't have it any other way
your basketball shorts always drove me mad
i left three times and i'm so glad

we were restless and careless
we were everything and nonetheless
we came apart like broken seams
