Track Name: unbirth
we all need a reset
escape from everyone
but someone’s always blocked the door
the road to overcome our inner demons
We're all the same but we all choose to deal alone

So what can I expect when everyone’s in their own world
and I can’t even focus on my wants and what I should?
I wanna curl up
oblivious to all the souls feeling alone

unmoving unloved untidy untold

Too many stories
Don’t wanna lose myself in all the fears of the unknown
Too many voices
Don’t wanna register a word of the cries in this room
No, i’m not lonely
i just want to crawl into your womb

I swear to god I’m all messed up
I can’t get out my words
“don’t lock the door don’t fuck this up” is all ever heard
i wanna curl up
they brought this on because we’re all thinking alone

Too many stories
Don’t wanna lose myself in all the fears of the unknown
Too many voices
They’re getting louder, ever louder, have you heard?
Too much garbage on the sidewalk
staring back at us in spite
And I'm not angry
I just want to crawl into your womb
i’m not angry
i just want to crawl into your womb

don’t lock the door don’t fuck this up
don’t lock the door don’t fuck this up
I’ll crawl right in I’m all messed up
I’ll crawl right in I’m all messed up
Track Name: the rain
i stood in the rain today
and i looked to the sky
i stood in the rain today
and i let the drops hit me
soak through my clothes / and wet my soiled skin
i stood in the rain today
i stood in the rain

i stood under the rain today
drops made their way down through my hair
down my face through my lashes
making black trails as they went...
eroding anxiety
through all the contours of my skin
eroding years of pressure
hidden in the stone mountain of my face
i stood in the rain today
i stood in the rain
i stood in the rain today
i stood in the rain

i made a face to the rain today
i cried at the sight of the clouds
i laughed at the sound
of the drops on the dry earth
the water digging a ditch
it filled me with temptation
a sudden urge and resolve
to kick up all the bad feelings
throw them down and be on my way
i said i stood in the rain today
i stood in the rain
i stood in the rain today
i stood in the rain
Track Name: sabbatical
Let’s get away from the drama
I wanna learn all your flaws
So you and I can be honest
And we can share our two worlds

Would it be too much to kiss you?
I hope that you don’t mind
That this was the best I could do
I’ll make it up to you sometime
Track Name: knives come out
you never know when those knives come out
so bear your cross
you better show your cards when those knives come out
Track Name: the spot
I know I shouldn’t like it
But it kinda hits the spot
It doesn’t fit what I’ve been taught
This is too much to handle
But you kinda hit the spot
So why’d I waste all that time lost?

it’s not what they said would happen…

They said I should’ve moved on
Moved to the other coast
I didn’t know I need you most
You wanted me to answer
But you never trust the phone
You’re lucky I’d been so alone

It’s not what they said what they said what they said what they said
I think I’m falling in

I told you that I loved you
What compelled me, I don’t know
It's all part of the ebb and flow
It’s so much to remember
But it's not ours to forget
Our love, well they don’t see it yet…but i’ll show ‘em
Track Name: insomnia (come alive)
i’m stuck in a cold sweat
i’ve got two ways to go but neither satisfies
my indecision, please eat me alive
i lay and wait for someone’s answer
‘cause i can’t make a move
can you help me understand my inner demons?
i cannot accept this undue pressure
we became machines for nothing
can i ever get to sleep? i guess i can’t

make me come alive
strangers in the night, i feel like screaming
nothing is alright, i need your help to
make me come alive

i know you’re out there
i know you’re out there
i better let go
Track Name: you know I
you know i’m always down
you know i’m always around
you know i’m always down
you know i’m always around

tall tall buildings make my neck kink
my body’s small, my ego shrinks
and my mind wanders to the future
but i can’t keep a thought inside my head
inside my head inside my head
can’t sleep, i might piss off the neighbors
then one true statement gave us all the movement
we found our inner truth
and each idea it bloomed into a flower
but we’re so good we forgot how to feel
like that shit isn’t real
and that’s what keeps me coming toward the water

i’ve got all these ideas in my head
i’ve got all these demons in my head
