Track Name: Bag of Bones
hey there texas
have you been well?
have your scars finally healed
from the winter
that gave you hell?

sitting by your bedside
is when i realized
we're nothing more than bags of bones
and like mother said
"that which takes shape
will some day break"

and i can't forget your face
speaking of the fear
of how you didn't want to wake
oh i'd never seen you
i'd never seen you that way

sitting by your bedside
is when i realized
we're nothing more than bags of bones
and like mother said
"that which takes shape
will some day break"

and i know that you love me
and i know you'll never love me
and that's alright i don't mind
as long as i'm the one you call
when you're heart is so heavy
with the dark you can't speak of

sitting by your bedside
is when i realized
we're nothing more than bags of bones
and like mother said
"that which takes shape
will some day break"
Track Name: Letters
here's the letter
i meant to write you
sixteen months overdue
and of course it reads "i miss you"
of course it doesn't read "oh go i need you"

oh no it happened again
the same mistakes
repeating
and i fear that's how i'll end
every three word phrase a lie
and you'll be free
and i felt free

well you bring out
the best in me
make me who i want to be
at least until the morning
that's far too often
so goddamn disappointing

oh no it happened again
the same mistakes
repeating
and i fear that's how i'll end
every three word phrase a lie
and you'll be free
and i felt free
Track Name: Progress
so this is the future
the population hunched over
unable to speak
and without empathy
the dinner table
has grown so lonesome
with silent bodies
illuminated by bright screens

the children all think
they're so clever
the adults know better
but not for long
i guess there's nothing wrong
with that

and no one is to blame
after all it's so addicting
with mild entertainment
at your fingertips
so ignore your friends
for friends who aren't here
because they aren't
listening anyway

the children all think
they're so clever
the adults know better
but not for long
i guess there's nothing wrong
with that
Track Name: Stay Home
as of late i've come to think
i'd like to be
over this
sleeping away the day
with moods that never stay
oh i'm scared
i want control

how does it feel to finally be home?
after so long i know
the comfort that you wanted
how does it feel to waste this time alone?
the things you're running from
will find you

walking in a haze and blur
of days that stay the same
a craving in your gut that screams
"save me"
a city colored depraved
it seeps into your brain
to remind you
that nothing gold can stay

how does it feel to finally be home?
after so long i know
the comfort that you wanted
how does it feel to waste this time alone?
the things you're running from
will find you
