Been thinkin’ bout the time I have and where I wanna be Has the consonance in everything been all your score? And in February before you leave Will it fall silent? Call it a day, kid Been thinkin’ bout the Autumn day that wrapped you up in me Did the dissonance shake silence into warmth among those leaves? And in February before you leave Will I feel that silence? Call it a day, kid

extra mile 03:44
Do you still go the extra mile Cause it’s not crowded there? Down the horse trails To the waist high water Where I was coming up Where Dalton skimmed a frisbee Spinning teardrops Tying bows of rain Well I was coming up We were growing up All the time away What were we running from? Been holding on to how I felt instead of how I'm feeling Been holding on to how I give instead of how I give in Give in Give up Been holding on to all the places I called home Do you still go the extra mile Cause its not crowded there? Or do you make it out at all? I never make it out no more Cause I moved 500 miles and it’s too crowded here And I am coming down I am growing up. All the time away

mahal kita 03:57
I’m so afraid of losing it The gentle ghost you left with me That held me close as I lost my way I I’m all that I need But would the dream still wait up for me? No On my way back home Caught in transit Left to my elation On the morning you cried to me I felt the life spill right out of you Held my hand as we lost the day. Ma, You’re all that you need But you stay You live You learn how to love Cause you know You need it to change But I need it to rain I need it to rain On my way back home Caught in transit Left in my elation I’m so afraid of losing it.

aurora 03:09
Lost in the fever of Rearranging my behaviors Like a waning moon How I wish I were with my friends I used to think I was my own design Now I know I’m the days Reflection Where the table Runs forever I’ll see you in a while

graying 02:40
Heard they threw a party for you Even filled up balloons in your arteries to keep you from being a memory Ma colored her hair But I could hear her feet spinning the plastic wheel of a cold IV Just graying Just aging Do you remember when you told me, “someday I would miss the small things?” Some days come too soon Would you miss all you wanted to see in me? Watched you giving up on Christmas Kept filling a glass As an effigy You had meant to outlast and pass down to me So Ma colored her world In your reveries like watered down ideals bleeding entropy Are we waiting? Am I waiting? Do you remember when you told me’ “I could be anything I want to?” I wanted to be you

empathy 02:45
Speaking Volumes But I’m feeling Quiet Is everything under the sun still sacred? Has all of my empathy abdicated? That feeling of learning a word, a meaning And hearing it all of the time; The fleeting prose Leaving me up to my own devices, There’s something about it that kills me softly while I’m inconsequentially spinning my own web Catching the pollen and anything that’s left Wouldn’t it be nice to find a place Your sadness was a privilege you could play in? Where Everything under the sun is kin Everything under the sun is sacred (It’s always been right in front of you)

jejune 03:46
If all of my fear roots in you Well why ghost the thought when it haunts me? Been digging at a hue A sedative ephemera I fed Jejune How could you? To see us in All of the light With all of these things that you wanted Would you burn it down? And was it that bad? Jejune How could you? Could you Long for your source Just like I do? Would you? Could you Get well? Could you Get well? Could you Get well? Would you? How could you? Caught in a lie And the lie’s catching up How could you?

mauve rinsed 02:47
Trying to learn how to trust when everything Feels good I didn’t have to do that Before 25 Can animals resent their names? I’d like to think that I’m not yet tame I’m still a winner in the woods by myself I’m still a curious, happy, learning, Loving... Trying to learn how to trust That I was looking out for you Do you remember, in Japan Calling me a mess? I told myself that you were right Watched you do the same to her If I wasn’t told what I was would I know it? Maybe I resent your name I’m headed back to where my name’s from Where I’m still a winner in the woods by myself I’m still a curious, happy, learning, Loving...

Hey Get up now I found a reason to live Hey Get up now I’m feeling like falling apart Will it last? Will I find beauty again In this life? Hey Get up now I found some reasons to change Hey get up now The feeling of falling apart never lasts Will I find beauty again In this life? Well, I found beauty again In this life. I found beauty again In this life.
