Are You Ever 03:19
I never had sympathy For all the things you said you need I never bought your tragedy You look for grace through your greed Stop texting me all the things in your head Leave me alone so I can get back to bed Are you ever gonna need all the things that you seek Are you ever gonna read all the books that you keep Will you ever believe all the words that you speak Baby put down the phone and listen to me Are you eva’? You think that you’re exemplary Dressed up in daddy’s jewelry But life is full of epiphanies Your happiness illusory Stop texting me all the things in your head Leave me alone so I can get back to bed Are you ever gonna need all the things that you seek Are you ever gonna read all the books that you keep Will you ever believe all the words that you speak Baby put down the phone and listen to me

Plainly 03:39
No more hair left on my head I can’t hide, I can’t pretend Nothing left to hide my eyes now Nothing left to quelch the contact She’s all right but I can’t commit Is it my past why don’t I give a shit She’s got a point I didn’t treat her right I can’t control my eyesight Something’s goin’ on but you don’t have to say it to me Something’s goin’ on but you don’t have to say it to me There’s something goin’ on but you don’t have to say it to me Something’s goin’ on now I can see it plainly Trapped inside we both don’t feel alive This must be a roller coaster ride Nothing real to be scared of Don’t you treat your eyes like children Something’s goin’ on but you don’t have to say it to me Something’s goin’ on but you don’t have to say it to me There’s something goin on but you don’t have to say it to me Something’s goin’ on now I can see it plainly I can see it plainly

The Tide 04:15
She’s drinking gasoline and crying She breathes, she inhales lightning Then she screams just to test the silence As it leaves her body She goes unconscious She spills onto the ceiling The tide goes on believing Oh she’s waiting She makes her way through the frenzy A shallow breath at the point of breaking She’s a beautiful disaster in the making Alone and lost And panicking She spills onto the ceiling The tide goes on believing She spills onto the ceiling The tide goes on believing Oh she’s waiting

Shape You 02:33
Look at the stars and tell me what you think The ones I focus on the most are lit intermittently Too introverted to shine but in the shadows they’re burning so violently I gotta tell you something that you oughta know The shape won’t change until you tear it don’t you know I don’t know you well enough to know To shape you on my own Look around are we as important as we think And take a look at yourself are you who you appear to be So tell me something so I can understand is everything what it seems I gotta tell you something that you oughta know The shape won’t change until you tear it don’t you know I don’t know you well enough to know To shape you on my own

What is there to know When it’s all been said I could ask my friends But all my friends are dead You came into my home Slept under my bed I wanted happiness And I got you instead No one gets the phone We’re long past that stage To answer means to talk And vocalize the rage Some silences have heat But more often they’re cold We couldn’t make it catch A match without a stove We blew it all before we started But at the time it seemed important Watch all the flames surround the space And then it fell into place You said you’d make it right Then everything went wrong Copied all my keys And mixed up all my songs And emptied all my bags So you could make us clean But now we lack a vessel for our dreams We blew it all before we started But at the time it seemed important Watch all the flames surround the space And then I fell into place Then I fell into place We blew it all before we started But at the time it seemed important Watch all the flames surround the space And then I fell into place
