Track Name: Off The Rocker
Please please please
Listen to me
I'm beginning
Track Name: Soften
head to toe in bandage
you did this for me
new sensations in my eyes
i don’t recall a thing
i really want to thank you but i don’t know your name
sharpest needle
hardest fall
it softens to a grey

you don’t need to tell me
i can feel the pain
you don’t need to tell me
i can feel the pain go away

you don’t need to stay here standing in the rain
shiver closely in my arms now
that’s the only way
i don’t want to leave you
but i shouldn’t stay
you can tell me all the things that no one else would say

you don’t need to tell me
everything’s okay
you don’t need to tell me
everything’s okay for today
Track Name: Vessel
give me a hollow chest
a cave that once held
something so powerful
it escaped my bones
but ties me to every living thing
and leaves no emptiness in me

i want to be
a channel
a vessel
for something intangible

every time we settle
deny what's possible
forget we're capable

so big
my skin
can't fit
i've outgrown my words
Track Name: When I Sleep
When I sleep I see your window
It's sealed shut and I can't get through
But I can't wake up can't wake up can't wake up can't wake up without you
It's harder now to let go

‘Cause i need a connection
If i dream it, it might all work out
If i wait all night wait all night wait all night wait all night would you come?
Would you come before i grow old?

My friends are all liars
They’re happy and i’m dragging them down
And i wish i could wish i could wish i could wish i could say something right
So i can keep them around

Lock up all the doors and wait for the sun to come out
I don’t know why i still struggle with all this self doubt
