Track Name: Living Room
I'm taken back to all of the dreams I had
These days, I sit alone in my living room
And I'm afraid to even talk to you
'Cause you'll tear me down, make me feel like a clown
These days, I sit alone in my living room
And I'm afraid to even talk to you
These days, our friendship is such a drag
And it's not something that I want to do

Just go drink yourself to sleep
Instead of berating me
It's the adult lullaby
And these are our boring dreary lives
My friend, I do wish you well
On your journey into Hell
I'm sure you'll make the Devil laugh
But soon enough, I'm sure he'll be sorry that you fell

Hiding away, I've found a new place to stay
These days, I sit alone in my living room
And even of that, I'm sure you disapprove
Give me a break
I can't do this anymore
Track Name: Crying Time
Feel the night, the moonlight
The weight of God is crushing my skull

It's Crying Time; I put forth such an effort,
Yet, here I am lying
Telling tales, none of which are believable
You probably should say goodbye to me
I don't want you to see me crying

Here we are, gather round
I'll take you up to higher ground (on high)

It's Crying Time; I put forth such an effort,
Yet, here I am lying
Telling tales, none of which are believable
You probably should say goodbye to me
I don't want you to see me crying

So here we are
Now watch me go

It's Crying Time, and despite my crude attempts at lies,
My love is forever undying
But I'm leaving now,
And I'll soon be whisked away
Into the tears that fill the sea
Underwater is where I'll be
Because down there, no one can see
I've been crying
Track Name: Layin' Low
Layin' Low, oh no
I can feel the pressure grow
Standing up, don't know why
I don't sit back down and watch as time goes by
I know you don't wanna listen to me cry
Wish I could be like a bird and fly
Can't wait 'til you can watch me rise

From my bed, ooh my head,
Oh, my lungs are black, and my face is red
From the mouth of a horse
Comes a cold hard truth in a voice that's coarse
He says, "It's so, so, so hard to watch you die
But I'm so glad that you're alive,
And I hope to see the light return soon."

We're in a bit of a situation
Everything is being taken from me
Oh, it's such a big frustration
Turn around, turn around, turn around
I'm layin' low

Feelin' high, oh why
I can feel it in my eyes
Feelin' down when I'm up
I was doin' fine, now I'm out of luck
And I don't wanna ask you for a single buck
Yeah, I'm ashamed that I give a fuck
I know I shouldn't, but I feel like I have to

We're in a bit of a situation
Everything is being taken from me
Oh, it's such a big frustration
Turn around, turn around, turn around
I'm layin' low

Layin' Low, oh no
I can feel the pressure grow
Standing up, don't know why
I don't sit back down and watch as time goes by
I know you don't wanna listen to me cry
Wish I could be like a bird and fly
Track Name: Weeks
It all burned
In the summer
You're so down
Didn't want to leave
Back and forth
White walls felt like you

For weeks

Glue me back
Back together
Say we'll
Never sever
Haven't been
Haven't been myself

For weeks
Track Name: Running Back And Forth Between Grief And High Delight
Skin too thin
The sun's too dim
I just want to call you home
One-sided kiss
The chance already missed
Our love is already flown

Away from me
I found my identity
Enveloped and used
Do you remember when
You almost loved me again?

Common nouns
There's not enough of
Me to be considered alive
There's not a person,
Place, or thing to like
Unwritten truths enough in which to abide

Some idea, baby hold me
Forever wishing, baby hold me
Living for your contact
A withering contract
Forced hard,
Forged far,
Foremost I'm forgetful

Away from me
I found my identity
Enveloped and used
Do you remember when
You almost loved me again?
