Track Name: promise
no more mean friends
no more marlboro lights
no more letting it sit when i'm not alright
no more other people sitting in the back of my head
i know what's good for me
and i can handle my own regrets
i will never never never let you steal my energy
my potential force is a force of reckoning
i'm becoming i'm becoming i'm becoming
becoming

walkin through the woods and all the sudden you just stop
walkin through the woods to find a way away from the cops
i am nervous and my stomach churns with no remorse
throws itself against the cage with a body's force
i don't know what i am feeling in my heart of hearts
but i'm reaching all around despite the darkest parts
i was looking for a sign and hit my face on it
i was trippin on a rock and falling right in shit
i was really almost crying but i laughed instead

making my way around a round

no more mean friends
no more marlboro lights
no more letting it sit when i'm not alright
no more other people sitting in the back of my head
i know what's good for me and i can cope with my own regret
i will never never never let you steal my energy
my potential force is a force of reckoning
i was really almost crying but i laughed instead
Track Name: the world outside
there's a voice outside my window
it crescendos and decrescendos
and i fall out and into sleep respectively

who do they belong to?
and when did they come around?
and who clears the cloud that's left by the sound?

and i've got a tide under each of my eyelids
the world's got a real leg up on you
and i've got a spliff in my back pocket
that i'm saving for me and you

let's clear the air
i gotta figure out what to wear
i gotta look like the person i want to be
let's clear the air
help me figure out what to wear
i've got something in the morning
but i can also just stay here

there's a world outside my window
but the curtains cast big shadow
and i see nothing but the sun
silhouetted on my floor.
Track Name: born on tuesday
you were born
on a tuesday
yea you were born on a tuesday
and i was also born on that day
and we were bored
on a wednesday
yea we were bored on a wednesday
and i will probably be today

interpellate at a young age
eight drops of wine on a band aid
now i am thirsty to reconcile
and i was drunk on a thursday
yea i was drunk on a thursday
and i don't know
what i'll do
tomorrow
Track Name: lay it out
laid out
with my feet out
i'm strung out
inside head out
i'm feeling something
i can't pinpoint
i'm feeling something
i can't

i'm living something i want out of.

laid up
burn my weed up
i'm speaking so loud
silence my mouth
i'm feeling something
i can't live for
i'm feeling something
i can't adore

i'm touching something
but feeling nothing.
Track Name: shaky vision
kids are singing

are you kidding me?

fucking bugs dude...and i tried my card. one sixty three

yeah i definitely want to leave...we'll go to his house, it'll be ........ boring, then we'll get a slice of pizza
slice of pizza?

yeah i mean

then we'll go home
smoke a spliff
and go to bed
Track Name: who left the seat up?
who left the seat up?

my grip slips as the roof caves in
i toss turn throw myself around in the bed
and my head spins as the walls move in
lungs contract as i breathe you in

who left the seat up?

my hips flip as my stomach twists
i throw myself in the dirt and shit
and you talk slick but i know you're sick
when you talk i can't hear the end of it.

who left the seat up?
Track Name: steam
public space recedes
so does my patience
as i breathe down your street

and art is so fatigued
i'm so tired of speaking artfuly

because the world looks
black and grey
and fucking fascist
and i can't see
the light that shows the way
through the struggle
and into outer space

and the cars drive down my street
i stay in motion
and they still
hit me
and i don't feel helplessly
it just becomes so
overwhelming
Track Name: mind bender
mind bender
feet are stuck in the floor
in the hallway it's dark and i can't find a door
with my hands tied backwards
i'm fucked up but fine
fumbling with the dials on the dash while you drive
trying to get the radio working
trying to get me out of my mind
i will shift till the speakers stop buzzing
i will smoke until i'm high
