Track Name: sleep
I lose control of my heart
I can’t keep up without losing my breath
it’s been this way from the start, I need rest
I'll go to sleep at a decent time
when I find something worth waking up for

the days are long when I keep checking my phone
to see you haven’t called at all
and this is where I die
oh I thought i was the best part of your life
oh I thought i was the only one inside
now i’m pretty sure that I
I was wrong.
Track Name: if you love me, come clean
I can always pick up books
in the search of what I need
but that doesn’t help me any
if you’re impossible to read
so if you love me, if you love me
come clean

these monsters in my closet
are watching over me
the days are getting shorter
and at night it’s hard to sleep
the combination of all of this
is the death of everything
so if you love me, if you love me
hurry

because I don’t think that wasting
a second of this time
would benefit the outcome
of the life I had in mind
I’ll refer to you as my special love
the one that set me free
so if you love me, if you love me
come clean

waiting around until things grow old
I’m feeling lost in towns that were my home
and if everything was easier before
then we’ll go back to who we were

so I’m picking up a book
in the search of what I need
from religion, to fiction
being lost about at sea
and all I can imagine
is being brushed against your cheek
so if you love me, if you love me
come clean
Track Name: summer or spring
ever since you were born you were
cold as the snow you were
so scared to melt you avoided the warmth
that your family had gave in the
same flowing breath that they
said I love you to death

do you live for the summer or spring?
because you don't feel like winter to me
you came through this town like a breeze
do you live for the summer or spring?

well the fear in my eyes made me
terribly blind made me
so scared to live made me stay inside
while the rest of the world
had continued to spin
I had no reason to live when I was sick

do you live for the summer or spring?
because you don't feel like winter to me
you came through this town like a breeze
do you live for the summer or spring?

mamma, mamma I'll make you proud
take these words, sing them out loud
and i won't stop until there's middle ground
and you said I know

since the day I arrived
this had already died
this is it, you were right
and you said I know.
Track Name: you are the coffin
I am doing just fine, thank you
I know how much you like to keep in touch
so you can talk about it
and you said, who was that, who were you talking to?
is that the reason you're too scared to go downtown?
and talk about it.

she said it's my own body, I did what I wanted
ever since god made me bleed
he is a pedophile, you are the coffin
and you're the reason that I can't breathe

I'll sleep inside of your chest
and fight those thoughts in your head
some say we should take a rest
I think I'd rather be dead

her own body, she did what she wanted
ever since god made her bleed
if he's a pedophile you are a monster
and you're the reason that I can't sleep
Track Name: don't call me at all
it’s not that I don’t have words to say
I just don’t want to be the one that speaks them
I’d rather keep it secret until we reach it
so I’ll rest my head on the glory of this sorrow
I know its hard to swallow, but tomorrow
we’ll start new

and I remember the lines I thought that I’d forgotten
“your only flaw is that you’re flawless”
I’m so full of shit, I’m surprised you bought it
but to say that I don’t care is more or less astounding
because I wrote an entire album about us drowning
wasn’t that enough?

now I’m haunted by all these holes found in my armor
and if my heart beats any harder I will lose it
well congratulations, I didn’t know
you two had made things so official
just don’t call me when it fizzles
in fact, don’t call me at all.
Track Name: to see you alive
you can’t be by yourself
you can’t be by yourself
they kept you in the dark
in a room with nothing sharp
until you were well
you told me that you were so
scared of what they know
but love isn’t afraid
love is using your first name
in the poems that I wrote

follow me to a home
abandoned at the shore
there’s a story on the walls
written in marker across the halls
that you’ll adore
and no one can see us now
like the sun behind the clouds
lets grab a drink for lunch
and wash out the taste of blood
from our guilty mouths
when you stepped into the light
I saw it running down your thighs
and thought what a beautiful sight
to see you alive
Track Name: it's thursday, january 12th and this the last time i'll talk about drowning
phone in my pocket, what a wonderful day
thinking of something that I should say
but I can't hold you responsible anymore
I don't know what I'm thinking
I'm lost now in the thrill of it
but I'm not giving up until I am free
because that's where I'm supposed to be

and I get so lost in the thought of life
that I forget to start living mine
I can feel it's weight on my chest
like I am drowning

and I get so lost in the thought of life
that I forget to start living mine
I can feel it's weight on my head
like I am sleeping
like I am dreaming.
