Track Name: Still
weeks seem steady for once
and time rides us when we're alone
we're sinking deep in shallow months
but what you heard was a different sound
and i could drown in the support i lost
but today i felt better off sitting here alone

and i can’t lie to myself
for what it is we came for
when we’re both so low
our definitions go so far
weeks seem steady for once
so for the next twelve months
we'll walk on separate tracks
on the same stones, in the same town

it's not often that we fight
to let go of yesterday's false hopes
that will bury us in separate graves
convinced ourselves of luck (perfect worlds apart)
and i can’t tell if i’m stuck

when nothing is sacred to you
how can you act differently?
these habits weigh me down so deep
i’d feel contention if you cared half as much as me

this feels familiar
i’ve been laughing about the broken pieces built
drawn apart to a stand still
weeks and days don’t compromise well
now you stand still

i’ve been laughing to myself
at our best we're distant.
Track Name: Just Stay Gone
i’ll make myself scarce
since i’ve convinced myself
that it’s easier that way
maybe next time i should just stay gone
that way no one would have
to ask me where i've been

because truth is i don't know where i've been
only where i am
and the ways that it all got me here
tripping over things that i've decided i never meant
doesn't really help me mend all the things
that i've destroyed along the way

all this smoke has got my eyes burning
all this talk has got my ears ringing
all this nothing has got me mumbling again

one day we'll tear open this chest and
bask in the light that i've been hiding there
one day we'll collect all these bones and
build something that stands taller than we ever did

i spit bone and crimson
i swallow regret and failed aspirations.
Track Name: Too Blind To See (Old Reflections)
the same yellow lines
keep me quiet when i’m sleeping
silent when i’m speaking.
it hurts to drive down alleys we knew so well
past memories on dusty shelves

this is no way to live
i feel it inside when the sun sets down
now i’m screaming at myself
i’ll just try, i’ll just find the flaws for now

i've lost all passion and anger
trying to give my hands out
i’m let down by a thousand familiar faces
dying above ground in broken houses
trying to get out and never meaning to give in
when i walked by my old house
too blind to see old reflections.
Track Name: Forging
(lose your ghost and keep your head)

a writer drunk on all his thoughts
gave me everything i lost

so don't become the bitter man
that stumbles down the tracks
his tired eyes aren't looking back

sure those kids, they love the words
but they dont live by them
the smoke and rhymes are chapters
of a fallacy we wrote and gave away

a poet emptying her rounds
made us think that we were flying
but we just got tangled in the lines
that night we lost our fucking minds

so lose your ghost and
keep your head from crashing in the clouds
colors descend and reach the ground

in basements we all dream and wait
for the walls to weaken
the smoke and rhymes are chapters
of a fallacy we wrote and gave away

on bitter nights we search for romance
in the eyes that aren't looking back
we're not looking back
but we can't even reach the tracks
