Track Name: houses
i'd like to think that i'm a quiet street,
with homes on either side of me.
functional families in full occupancy.
so i could feel each house
crash upon myself
and figure out what it means to be me.

if a tree fell in the forest of my vocal chords,
would anyone hear me?
if nobody was there but it could be heard from anywhere,
would anyone listen
to me?

i know you'd like to think that i'm a one-way-street
you can crash your car on, without the sirens of police.

and i don't think i need a savior, but i'm still staring in my mirror
praying to myself that
somebody will find me.

if a tree fell in the forest of my vocal chords, would anyone hear me?
if nobody was there but it could be heard from anywhere, would anyone listen to me?

i'd like to think that i'm a quiet street so houses can crash on top of me.
so i can find a foundation to my teenage anxieties.
Track Name: houses part 2
here's a house, one where you're always home alone.
where records sound even better when you're sitting on the floor.
and no one comes, no one invades your space
so you can spend your time thinking of people who you're so glad you replaced.

i found the simplest part of living:
waiting in bed until someone else arrives.
i found the simplest part of existing:
doing it.
Track Name: something to adore
i glued glow in the dark stars on my ceiling to feel like i was flying.
i held my breath in the dark and let them shine on my stomach.

i can't escape the world, so i might as well enjoy it.
i can't part with my discomfort, so i might as well explore it.
i can't silence my conscience, so i might as well speak for it.
i can't choose that i was born.

making plans for every future second every passing second,
i wish i could collect them.
but all the seconds bathe in oil that either burns or reduces friction,
and i can't catch them.

but i can't escape the world, so i might as well enjoy it.
i can't part with my discomfort, so i might as well explore it.
i can't silence my conscience, so i might as well speak for it.
i can't choose that i was born, so i might as well find something to adore about it.
