Bones 03:33
I think I figured out how to hold myself Hold myself back Don't overdo it again My friends don't know I don't have any skin My bones float around, I can't hold them in All we need to do is stay in touch All we need to do is fall in line The people who gave me my bones There's no way that they would have known How we would give up hope How we would end up alone The silence of my childhood sitting shaking on the rug As my father gathered all of us and petrified our love
Full 03:19
Grocery shop 'til our cabinet's full Maxing out our cards 'til we don't sleep anymore Let's tell all our friends that they're not our friends It's not us it's them Oh, I don't think I'm gonna like it here The place in my mind where I think something weird The logical collages of the shit I fear I'm not gonna like it Go tell me I'm alone and I will disappear Tantrums of abandonment in every year When I get to thinking I may like it after all I'm not gonna like it Hey, I pray towards what I'm grateful for every day Light some candles up and put 'em on display Just in case I forget (I'm not gonna like it) I wanna visit Hawaii, I just need to find the money
Sweet Thing 03:31
If I tell you I got it all wrong for years, oh no If I tell you I've been here all along Go ahead, call me out, go ahead, call me out sweet thing If I tell you I don't know where I am, can we take directions Can we figure it out from where we stand, sweet thing Oh, I don't know Oh, I'm not thinking Oh, this is how I feel If you tell me I can leave it all behind You saw it too, I wasn't wrong, and I have been strong What do you want?
Why don't you act on what you feel inside? Why ain't you telling the truth Taking your mother and your friends for a ride I think you like the abuse Are you some kind of masochist? I'm trying not to victim blame but you're falling off your axis Depression is a shade of one type of color If you're painting with it you don't see any other The God that exists around the flies in my mouth Is never aware of its faults But if the Gordian knot in my mentality slips I bet it's a problem I caused Cuz I'm some kinda masochist Depending on my terrible memory to get me acting pissed I should probably learn to stick up for myself But it seems my mind is always stalling or somewhere else Depression is a shade of one type of color If you're painting with it you don't see any other
Tasha 04:19
We used to share the waves of shame Perennial and in our name All these mornings and phone calls and drives through the night And I swear it's your honesty that kept me alive We used to share the weight the pain We used to have so much fake pride Nothing more to tend to than the earth we work Nothing more to follow save the tide The evening slipped away unnoticed And your soul made its exit with the light Saying "You go to the rest of this without me. No offense meant, you will be alright." My darling there is no offense taken And I've recognized your ghost among my demons But I do struggle to wake up Faking everything Cursing everything in sight that isn't you My darling what did you do
