Track Name: CYCLES
i know the seasons by the days that im alone
Oh in fall you come home, but by winter you grow cold like the ground
and in summer, youre never around

but by spring, youll be forgiven and youll walk back to me
and in your smile theres something sweet
but theres a lie right behind your teeth.
Track Name: I HOPE I SEE
And with all I've wanted
is it all I've been?
And with all I've carried I
s it all a dream?

And with all that's happened
Is it what it seems?
When my beds unmade
Can it be made again?

I Hope I See

When you're running blank
Don't you think a thing
If night is young
It ain't right to leave

And with all that's happened
Is it what it seems?
If your shoes untied
Can it be tied again?

I Hope I See

Cause when you're growing blind
From all your health concerns
It ain't up to me
To tell you what you're worth

I Hope I See
Track Name: BLACK SNOW
When I was young,
I was dumb,
And I was happy,
Now I feel crappy,
I guess that's too bad.

Sleep all day,
Get away,
But when I wake up,
Don't wanna get up,
Just to fuck up.

Buried my soul,
In the snow,
In the black snow.
Track Name: SALT-LICK
my teeth are bleeding
your teeth are bleeding
must be there's something
in the water we're drinking
i think you gave it to me
when you licked my teeth
i think you gave it to me
when you kissed me to sleep

my mom says it's cause i'm tired
Track Name: ALCHEMY
I'm so love-struck
I thought I could perform
Thought I could perform
Alchemy

I'm so dumb-struck
I was too wishful
In my dumb thinking
Just get rid of me

Who would care if I fell down those ugly stairs
I could stop pulling out all of my golden hair
Maybe then I would have no need to brood
Maybe then I could stop thinking of you

Called in sick and
Smoked a pack and
Made fun of every-
one
.
Track Name: FORGIVE ME
it’s in the way that you think of me
when your mind starts to feel so lonely

but you’re trying so hard to remember the way
that you once had to say
that it wasn’t okay
anymore

now the lights don’t shine my way
but it feels so right to remember the way

that you hate what you want
and you want what you hate
but you open your mouth
but there’s nothing to say
anymore

just a benchmark dry spell
pencil me out
i got mud in my pot
chock-full of doubt

so forgive me
forgive me
Track Name: TUNGSTEN
feel my gums go numb
it's hardly bothersome
to know i'll rot with grace
gone but not erased

my new friend, let me tell you some old news
my conscience is my favorite bruise
and i'm getting used to it

in the tungsten night
hollow thoughts have might
a mangey coyote
quivers inside of me

my old friend, let me tell you something new
my conscience is my prettiest muse
and it's getting used to me
Track Name: SUMMER EYES
It was me & you & salt & sand & spanish songs
The night we danced & sang & we were young
The palms blew in the sun the morning tide rolled in

But oh summer eyes
Deep blue sea
Bleached white shells
This time travels through me

The plane cast off the sea the motor roared
The land began to shrink & so did my mind
With dreams of sun-kissed-skin & surfs & tides washing in

But oh summer eyes
Deep blue sea
Bleached white shells
This time travels through me
Track Name: SLOPPY JOES
if you packed my lunch would you put in apple slices
would you hang out with me by the rainbow slide at recess
if the bullies stomped on my sandwich would you buy me a sloppy joe
would you help me if during craft time my hands were covered in glue
i feel like im in elementary school when i'm with you
Track Name: WHITE RICE
DEATH IS PARALLEL TO _
ALL THOSE SUPER WELL TO _
DO _

AND TO BE THAT AND TO _
CONCEIVE THAT IMMACULATE _
CHILD OF THE ELLIS ISLAND
BALLROOM_

A STAIRWAY TO AMERICA _
DESCENDS AT PORT AND _
HANDKERCHIEFS _
COME OUT

I TRIED TO TYPE TRIED _
BUT TIRED ON MY PAGE _

THE DYSLEXIA OF BRAINS _
FAILURE TO OPERATE _

AND AS I FALL ASLEEP _
FOOTCANDLES NEVER FAIL_

TO REMIND ME OF MY _
HOPELESS AVAIL
Track Name: PALE MORNING
there is no one in the house
there is nothing in my eyes
there is nowhere to feel pure
my clock has lost all sense of time

there is rhythm in routine
but there's none inside of me
there's a melody in the sky
teasing me that i can't sing or fly

i wrapped cold chains
around my face
waitied for rust
to eat away
at these thoughts
inside my head
hidden spiders
in my bed
worry me to death
to death.
Track Name: GOOSE KILLING
maybe if you picked up the phone we would be alright
but you had to sleep with a goose for the night

how will you be happy when you're feeling so sassy
when you say you love me
but in his bed you fall asleep

it's the curse of the young girl away from safety
i can't give you your expectations of comfort baby

being bipolar's a bitch

i love you - get out of my face!
Track Name: WAITING
Waiting in the car that you'd give up so fast
As I throw up chairs
And mop up dares
And grin

After they pulled out
All your ugly teeth
You still found a way
To bite through me

I wish that I didn't have to be such a baby
Or that those nights spent holding my stomach in your bed
Weren't the times in my life I felt my best

So what's the deal with all your stupid shit
I know damn well that you've been listening to all my dumb old fits
So answer the phone don't just leave it alone
I want you to feel as miserable as I do sitting at home

When will I have the satisfaction
Of knowing that I'm doing better than you
Slimy past ugly interactions
Maybe I can finally get past your obvious reaction

It's pretty clear it's your loss
