Track Name: Low-Grade Depression
Your low-grade depression
Is because you care about things
And you don't wanna do your work

Your low-grade depression
Is because you get hurt
Because you have a human heart
And you don't wanna do your work

Your low-grade depression
Is your need for meditation
Is your need for boundaries
I know that she scares you
I know that it hurts
But God loves you more and God gave you all of the words

Get up darling, get out of bed
You're gonna die but you're gonna live through the whole day today
Get up darling, you beautiful thing
And do your work

Get up darling, open your door and look around
Get up my sweet friend, take your heart
Get up and go do your work
Track Name: Settle Down
The rich people in the airplane
Talk about the things they want to change
On their bodies
Which people are the most privileged at the end of the day
If it's higher than us, where are they
What's the difference between a burden and a dream come true?
Asking for a friend

'Cause you helped me lighten up
You helped me settle down
Lost in reason, lost without it
I hope you come around

You're a child being pulled along by a string
In a sled in Central Park
That's who you are
I'm a child staring out of a window of a car
Longing to get away from what I'd seen so far
What's the difference between a burden and a dream come true
Asking for a friend

'Cause you helped me lighten up
You helped me settle down
Lost in reason lost without it
I hope you come around

Why would you take a knife to yourself?
Why would you let someone else take a knife to you?
I know we struggle for repentance, but what if we were sold our sentence?
I don't know

But you helped me lighten up
You helped me settle down
Lost in reason, lost without it
I hope you come around
Track Name: Grandfathers
I let a lot of things slide for a long time
I don't even know if I trust my mind anymore
My feelings come to haunt me
I just don't have that kind of self-control

Oh no, of course not, nobody does
Oh no, of course not, nobody does

I don't have grandfathers anymore
It happens however it happens
Your life story is all over your body

I'm ready to forget it if you're ready to forget it
I'm ready to forget it if you're ready to forget it

Maybe there's a world where we are friends
Maybe there's a world where we had it under control
And instead of this mess we helped each other
We were strong enough, we were friends

What does it say that all my friends are scared of me
What does it say that all my friends are scared of me

Everyone has their tragedy of wasted time
I wasted so much time but I stayed alive
I'm doing what my mother did
I'm doing what my grandmother did

When one is with you at your table the other is asleep on your bed
When one is with you at your table the other is asleep on your bed
When one is with you at your table the other is asleep on your bed
When one is with you at your table the other is asleep on your bed
