Track Name: Forget Everything
deal me in again
I will
but when?
how long does it take to feel the same?
I'll be honest probably not what you wanna hear
try to forget everything you felt and you fear
Track Name: Elbow
when you get angry
scream into this bag and bury it
from its place will grow
a tree of everything you fear
that you hold dear
and you'll know it's clear
get away from here
then you'll know you're safe
bury your face in your elbow
Track Name: Lyin'
pack away all of my hopes
board up my only home
so I cast off the ropes
and set out on my own
but I got no answer
no claim to truth
I'm lyin' if I do
and I know I'm the worst one
Track Name: Tooth & Fist
stop, wait, how'd it get so late?
sleep, eat, try to find a mate
I got my finger on it
work, beat, stand up give your seat
wash, run, stay light on your feet
I got my finger on it
walk, sun, try your best have fun
within the limits of your status
but no other one
I got my finger on it
coult it be, could it be so simple?
therein lies my prejudice
I would rather lost in the woods
I would rather tooth & fist
stop, wait, how'd it get so late?
sulk, lie, trip to another state
I got my finger on it
talk, cry, shudder, heave and sigh
touch, read, teach your kid to drive
I got my finger on it
wake, pee, refresh your feed
when you feel a sense of doubt
bury the seed
well I got my finger on it
Track Name: Dog Go Bark
fill my gullet with shit that I wouldn't feed my dog
but there's no best friend in my home
so I piss on the couch
put my tail between my legs whenever the bell rings
I slip the chain out of the lock
and bare my teeth to growl
I bark and howl
on the rare occasion when I get to leave the deck
I slip the leash around my neck
so I'm always in sight
feel the breeze behind my ear
I jerk the lease induce the fear
I am my own best friend as long as I behave
'less I be brave
I'll find a way, got to monetize
my home, my hands, my life
I walked away before
sat down my desk and 2 years turned to 4
my aspirations all out on the floor
no matter where I lay my head I can't ignore
this ache
get away, no way, I don't want it
for anyone
Track Name: Feel It Coming On
feel it coming on
feel it going okay
and when I'm at my strongest
I feel it turn and walk away
Track Name: The Scab
build an altar to a ghost
offer yourself as the host
thick wind blows in off the coast
I know
drain an animal, watch it flow
gather the blood, guilt in tow
wait for something impossible
I know
light the tree to burn
watch the wood twist, turn
follow these and you'll learn
build an altar to a ghost
offer yourself as the host
picking at the scab until it's the bone
Track Name: Afraid To Care
I won't talk when there's people around
but I'll certainly fill my cup
know that nervous, sweaty, stiff stare
I keep to keep from throwing up
you know it well
I can feel it in my body break
I bend to make room, let you take
my place and fill that space
my body used but left no trace
you know I would
I could stand up straight
but my posture's garbage
is a change to late?

when you get down to the shit of it
you know I would

now that we watch ourselves
in that fragmented sense of self
I'm scared, afraid to care
life is easy, truth over dare
fell into a plush rut
comfy where I lie
I ain't runnin' I'm just runnin' out of time
Track Name: Your Guess Is As Bad As Mine
walk up to the moon and wave goodbye
I wouldn’t even try
when to breathe out? when to lie?
I may retreat inside
but I won’t back down
take a look around
I hold my ear to the ground
take a breath and feel the dirt settle below my lungs

when to breathe out? when to lie?
maybe all my friends are right
but I won’t back down
take a look around
I hold my ear to the ground
take a breath and feel the dirt settle below my lungs

when to breathe out? when to lie?
maybe all my friends are right
turn my face up to the sky
your guess is as bad as mine
but I won’t back down
take a look around
I hold my ear to the ground
take a breath and feel the dirt settle below my lungs

so I dig down
what I lost I found
realized the size of the crown
it’ll never fit walk to the woods and bury it

yeah I dig down
what I've lost I found
realized the size of the crown
it’ll never fit walk to the woods and bury it
Track Name: The Crow
as the crow flies, cut a straight line through
bullshit reason, reassess the view
put myself down
to be alone
I can never be alone
first I know to cast a stone
in my time today
I'd just like to say: coulda been anyone
gave my time away
though I left I stay, coulda been anyone
no one else to blame
this the choice I made, could been anyone
but I won't let it fade
and I won't play it safe
I could be anyone
Track Name: Bass 2
closet sluggard, jack of all trades
I'll do everything so it goes my way
and never finish
throw it up on the shelf
right there next to everything I call myself
and every other month I bring it down
to try to sit and focus
and fill my notebook with lofty hocus pocus
but fall asleep
wake up and waste the day
fantasize my life in someone else's place
but I bare witness
to a lack of strength
an inability to enact real change
so every other month I bring me down
to wallow and be selfish
these alternate states
have got me feeling bogus
I'll go to sleep. wait.
what do I stand to gain?
a semblance of some purpose
though I feel insane
in body and in brain
a semblance of some purpose
carve out a custom space
to fit your fall from grace
a semblance of some purpose
so every other month I bring me down
to try to sit and focus
and fill my body numb
with the standard poison
to fall asleep
Track Name: Wet Nails
described the itch but not the scratch
I'm not looking for the source I'm looking for a patch
and when I feel it's dull attack
I despair until I can in fact step back, detach
burnin', burnin', burnin' in my head
tried the shrink and tried the psychic
tried the book of dead
burnin', burnin', burnin' in my head
go to church, at the very least you'll end up fed
so I left my friends and went out for a walk
try to clear my head, but all I hear is talk
think I'll take my time from now on
Track Name: Everybody Sounds Fake
we get old, we get selfish
everybody sounds fake
and I'm the worst one
we get old, we get on
found a way in my head
to get on
I know my name
and act my age
I feel insane
with doubt I can't erase
pushing pencil into place
Track Name: Shortcut To A Sore Throat
we only ever know what's wrong
we only have to when it's gone
keep my teeth sharp, tics in check
speaking of wrong place, wrong sect
overcast hours in neglect
poised to argue, etched in stone
shortcut to a sore throat
hard work in shadow
Track Name: Enough Already
when you're lonely 'cause you're only
thinking of yourself at night
and when you're sad
well I hope it's barely worth it
yeah I hope you're sick and tired
and you get mad
I know it's took to long
you thought it right, you felt it wrong
so at night you sing this song
and it's enough
when it's too much for the retouch
know it's better to move on
than to swing back
keep your chin up, with any luck
you will realize your life it ain't half bad
and know you've got it good
if you can help then you should
take my own advice, for once I wish I would
