I’ve never been this scared before in my whole entire life, I see the ocean, I see the coast line from the sky. We left the sun of Spring time for the autumn leaves of fall, We won’t see home again before hallows eve for sure. Was it all worth caving in? And if we break before we bend what does that mean? Regret it? Forget it. Feel stupid that I even thought out loud When there’s no other option you make it somehow. But it’s okay, do you think about the passing days? I’ve been listening to your lyrics, Words I never thought I’d say are what I need, As I watch you come to life in me, And watch me bleed onto the page, Another chapter you will never read. Was it all worth caving in? And at a loss for words do we become a part the machine? Presence or proximity. Regret it? Forget it - feel stupid that I even thought out loud Watch me break before we bend and watch me make it somehow.

Trash Course 02:42
Are we fragile, or just vein and self-indulgent, When we performatively lay our cards all across the table? I'm still grasping out at straws, even though there's nothing left Our heroes fade into obscurity, and we disconnect We'll be choking on the aftermath, responsibility From friends who won't excuse our self-destructive tendencies So, I'll sit, and bang my head against the wall Try to make it all make sense, it just becomes irrelevant And I, know you're listening at home The devil's in the details, but it must be hard they won't leave you alone Are we concrete as our scaffolded convictions, As we create and limit ourselves to simple accessories? The glass houses we construct, around the stone throwers of town Like everything that comes before and after, will come falling down We'll be choking on the repercussions, false sincerity From friends who won't excuse us or give any courtesy to our mediocrity So I'll sit, and bang my head against the wall Try to make it all make sense, it just becomes irrelevant And I, can tell you're listening at home The devil's in the details, but it must be hard they won't leave you alone And it's gonna ruin you, if there's a single fucking thing left to ruin.

Stay Awake 03:26
“I’ve been working days and nights underneath these neon signs Nothing lies in store when you give up hoping for a citizen with benevolence to come and drag me out of the fucking rut I’m in But the cycle just goes on and on and on” Babe, we’re losing the light but we can talk all night if you’re staying awake If you think it’s the time we can set our sights and we’ll never explain how we’re planning our escape A sad life seeming set in stone, trapped in a house that’s not a home But the run in place of the every day ain’t the way things have to stay You gotta find your peace and see reality, you gotta face and kill your darlings But the cycle just goes on and on and on Babe, we’re losing the light but we can talk all night if you’re staying awake If you think it’s the time we can set our sights and we’ll never explain how we’re planning our escape

I need to hold onto something true, and it’s you, and it’s you, the last breath I’m clinging to I need to find a new place with a view and a new attitude and pincushion to abuse instead of you Now there’s a freight train that’s comin’ through and it’s you, and it’s you, at long last you’re coming’ through Let’s settle into a place with a view and choose to never move, or forget the parts of us we ruin we can’t undo We can travel the states from the falls to the bay, we can find find ourselves in another country. Whatever the place, we’ll be making’ the case that we’re alright
