Track Name: Good In Moving On
Where do you come from?
What is in the way you raise your voice?
Do you feel like a fool when you're troubled and derailed?
While you were hurting, you will find the wearier you grow.
Do you find yourself walking around in circles?
Or waiting for a clearing in the falling rain, wishing for the sun?
Just to get a bit of air through your lungs.
There is good in moving on.
Why are you searching for the next way to bring you down?
You will be summarized as a stepping stone with water moving swiftly around you.
And I'll have all these welling memories in my head.
There is good in moving on.
Track Name: A Life Of Roses
I don't expect a life of roses.
Time older, welder, wider motion.
Tear down.
My love isn't fine.
Track Name: Dismal Nitch
I thought I had another heartache, but you wait to let it go.
You wait to let it show.
Track Name: Crawling Glaze
I fell madly in it from the start
and so gladly opened up my heart to you.
I'm a fool for getting myself bruised,
who could bear the thought feeling used?
She cuts her hair just to be
something new, not some preset thing.
She gets scared and starts to run,
she has nothing but a front.
Break me slowly until you find yourself.
When you're ready my stitches will be out.
Why'd you tease me? I followed you around.
Love can't grow from anxiety and doubt.
So embrace your imperfections like your Japanese intentions.
Open up the curtain wide and let the light shine in.
Maybe then you'll never hurt another man, you'll never hurt yourself.
You'll never tell the story of the love you left down south.
Maybe then it's different, maybe then you'll see
the love that's all around you, the love you choose to leave.
Hooper, what are you running from?
Track Name: Socialite
All their eyes light dying screens in the night.
Years gone by now all I know is what I've seen.
What you wanted to show what you have been.
Meanwhile we are hiding on our own.
Nothing lasts forever but what servers store.
Most of all your face, is a projected ideal.
Hours a day spent, filthy mind, chewing rice.
Row by row sent pill of likes, move or hide
Passively held captive, while the cycle reveals
that we are hiding on our own.
Nothing lasts forever but what servers store.
Most of all your face is a projected ideal.
Track Name: Puppeteer
The older that I get, the more jealous I become.
Waiting on your read receipts and the tapping of your thumbs.
I'm trying to find the answers in the apps that show us love.
But I'm still eating off your plates.
Turning them away for the future fear of hate.
The grass that I find greener is just a finger's tip away.
The whole things a game, I'm a dog in a race.
I don't want to be a fuckboy,
I don't want to be a boyfriend.
I just want to find a lover,
who can feel what I'm feeling.
Everything that is growing,
started off in the dirt.
Both our limbs could be growing,
but they'd be rooted in hurt.
Before I get involved I feel the pressure building up.
Before I get involved I feel the worst is yet to come.
I'm tired in hiding answers in the life that I could love.
But I'm still eating off your plates.
Turning them away for the future fear of hate.
Every stranger that I see could be the lover that I crave.
The whole things a game, I'm a dog in a race.
I no longer want to play, I just want my way.
Track Name: Amelia
How'd you lose your mind with all these maps upon the walls?
Waiting for that call?
I know how hard it is to leave, but something burdens me in the way you wait for more.
Tyrant, leader, hero, bottom-feeder.
Sending oily marks across the sea.
Face the life you're meant to lead.
Amelia, what more do I have to say?
