Track Name: maroon
i’ve been running around, been running around.
been chasing these sounds, been losing my ground.
been sleeping lots less than i used to do;
been trying to figure out how to talk to you.

been playing with my food,
been playing with my food,
i’m not eating.

i’ve been running around, been running around.
been chasing these sounds, been losing my ground.
been sleeping lots less than i used to do;
been trying to figure out how to talk to you.

been playing with my food,
been playing with my food,
i’m not eating.
Track Name: zombie
i can feel it in my blood.
choking cancer fills my lungs.
my heart was madly in love,
but my mind was in the mud.

every day i’m waiting, hoping that you’re okay.
i hope that you are living in a healthy way.
every day i’m waiting, thinking something scary.
making sure you aren’t in the obituaries.

'cause i feel something light up in my zombie brain when i’m thinking of you.

it’s like i just woke up.
like comatose, like getting drugged.
i’m coming up on my post-teen years—
the thought fills me with insurmountable fears.

every day i’m waiting, hoping that you’re okay.
i hope that you are living in a healthy way.
every day i’m waiting, thinking something scary.
making sure you aren’t in the obituaries.

'cause i feel something light up in my zombie brain when i’m thinking of you.
Track Name: tetris
nothing's gonna change at the rate we're going,
and i know that your ghost keeps me from growing.
the shapes just don't make sense anymore.
playing tetris with the rugs on my bedroom floor.

and every waking moment i try
to make sense out of everything inside.
and time passes by that i know
but i still feel like i'm left out for the crows.

everything just happens too quickly.
everyone is leaving without me.
these prescription pills must kill my soul.
only 18, i feel so old.

and every waking moment i try
to make sense out of everything inside.
and time passes by that i know
but i still feel like i'm left out for the crows.
Track Name: life and how it changed
he's twiddling his thumbs.
he's chewing on his gum.
he's thinking about life and how it changed.
he lights his cigarette
in the rain, all soaking wet.
he's thinking about life and how it changed.

he'll never stop now.

he throws on all his clothes,
steps out of his bathrobe
for the first time in a hundred years.
and a smile crosses his face,
and the reason he can't place
for the first time in a hundred years.

he'll never stop now.
Track Name: the internet told me i want to die
i sleep in an unmade bed, and i
take medications cause i’m sick in the head, and i’ve
thought about you every goddamn day for the
past six months. it’s the price i pay.
i’d sit and listen to you complain about
all the boys you want to give some brain, but i’m
really hoping that you’ll come and stay. i’m
just really wanting you to remember my name

when you’re drunk
and crying.
like you do
all the time.

i regularly have dreams of you when i’m
sleeping in my bedroom.
i just want you to be okay. i’m just
hoping that we’ll meet again someday.
i’d sit and listen to you complain about
all the boys you want to give some brain, but i’m
really hoping that you’ll come and stay. i’m
just really wanting you to remember my name

when you’re drunk
and crying.
like you do
all the time.
Track Name: haywire
what are we
if just diseased?
alienated and withdrawn.
do you think I'm crazy?
‘cause I've been feeling crazy ever since I crashed my car.
i can't even remember yesterday.

i don't know what the hell's going on,
‘cause my brain is haywire.
i don't know what the hell's going on,
‘cause my brain is haywire

i need you.
i need you to save my soul.
i need you.
i need you to save my soul.

what are we
but ill at ease?
keeping our heads low but holding on.
what the hell is going on?
i can't feel my toes it's so cold.

i don't know what the hell's going on,
‘cause my brain is haywire
i don't know what the hell's going on,
‘cause my brain is haywire

i need you.
i need you to save my soul.
i need you.
i need you to save my soul.
Track Name: the u.s. open
i can’t remember what you said
i guess it’s my fault, i was lost in my head
watching the u.s. open on tv
watching the u.s. open on tv

i get distracted talking to you
i lose myself in your eyes of ocean blue
watching the u.s. open on tv
watching the u.s. open on tv

i sleep most of my days away
in a hyperbolic weed smoke composed haze
watching the u.s. open on tv
watching the u.s. open on tv
Track Name: piss flavored beer
maybe it’s the piss flavored beer,
or maybe it’s the fact that you’re here.
maybe i have a tendency to fuck everything up
but right now i just want to throw up.

my therapist says i tend to self destruct.
i said that probably explains the past few months.
but standing in that crowd and seeing you,
it made me hate myself more than i normally do.

popping johnnies all night, like they’re candy pieces.
i can’t look in your eyes, ‘cause i know that’s where my soul is.

and if you want to maybe go outside and let me
apologize for being so damn shitty.
i know i’m drunk, but so are you. who really cares?
why don’t we go out for some fresh air.

i’ll just piss out the drugs and booze tomorrow morning,
if i don’t throw up most of them tonight.
or maybe i’ll leave the party without warning—
chain smoke till i die or feel alright.

honestly the past is so surreal.
some days i can’t believe we were together.
i catch myself listening to your old voicemails,
“hello, babe, i love you.”

and maybe in some universe you miss me,
and all the hatred that you harbor never was.
but i know that in reality we’ll never
feel the same connection we used to call love.
Track Name: the day the world stood still
the sun woke up this morning and decided it wasn't worth it to shine,
so it put on his slippers and decided to stay inside.
the ocean looked upon the shore and decided it wanted something more,
so it packed up all its things and left the beach.
and the trees argued with the wind but when they realized they couldn't win,
they stormed off in a huff to find a new place to begin.
the breeze knew it was right all along but it dearly loved the trees, so chased after them, begging "come back to me, please."

and the world stood still for that moment in time.

the birds decided collectively there was nothing more to sing,
so they all closed their mouths and vowed against further chirping.
and the earth was drinking heavily, it started to get the spins,
so it sat down on its couch and put down the bottle of gin.

and the world stood still for that moment in time.
