Track Name: Black Waves
I fell in love with the size of the ocean
I fell in love with its beady eyes
Always under so much pressure
Its above my mind
Like a fetus draining to be
Draining my everything
Black waves just move along
Black waves just move along

Below those waves tonight!
Jump to be the anchor now, jump to be the anchor now!

I fell in love with the shape of the sun
I fell in love with what can’t come undone
that’s what I need, stability
something to keep on my knees
whats the point or the meaning to live?
No church what about my sins?
Its all a compendium
Pieces off a puzzle stuck with bubble gum

Below those waves tonight!
Jump to be the anchor now, jump to be the anchor now!

See the sky shine through the waves

Water has filled my lungs
The soaking clouds have drown the sun
The future is empty without someone
Oxygen has lost its fun
Track Name: Old Dirty Clothes
It's warm outside in the pourin rain
Nothing to be here nothing to gain
Just a chair full of old dirty clothes
And absolutely everyone I’ve ever known

To be forever
Always together
There's nothing better
Such a go getter

Watchin the tear drip from your eye
Down in the dirt ripped from the sky
All lonely people learn to cry
Never alone if you learn to sigh

To be forever
Always together
There's nothing better
Such a go getter
Track Name: Burning Paper Dolls
upside down and inside out
she sleeps like a paper doll
always the one who repeats
that she was tripped she never falls
slowly burning at my finger tips
is the answer to it all
take a hit like an invasion
or a problem that can't be solved

get over it
shes mine
nothing to do or say here
this time

so sound asleep she couldn't hear
the explosion inside my head
Taste like vomit candy
feels like today my death is near
always creeping up on me
when everything is getting clear
must learn this before its gone
the end is nothing to fear
Track Name: Just Float
You’ve got no place to go now
Will you survive?
Nothing to cleanse all of your wounds out
You’re a bulls eye.

Just float

You’ll still be lonely
From another side
Where nothing is familiar
Nothings quite right

You’ve got to be where you wanna be
Or atleast try
You’ve got to set yourself free
And quit jumpin on the ice

You’ll still be lonely
From another side
Where nothing is familiar
Nothings quite right
Track Name: Suddenly Drenched
Can’t you see it comin down
Or feel it in the air?
Its all around me
But not quite everywhere

What am I suppose to find?
Something that’s mine?

Don’t you reach out
And touch my hand
I don’t need you to hold on to
Don’t need anything

Or maybe I do?
And maybe its you

Start the flame, feel the fire reverse the car
Start the flame, feel the fire reverse the car
Track Name: Marsupials
The
Absent noise
Seems
To have me boy
See
With your toys
Do everything that you please
Its your choice

If there was only love
If there was only love
If there was only love
Then I guess id love

Please
Fall asleep
Leave
Don’t think
These
Silent sheets
Wanna rustle and tumble around
Till at my feet

If there was only love
If there was only love
If there was only love
Then I guess id love

Now that the daydreams died
Now that the daydreams died
Track Name: Purple
I wanna go somewhere
Where the trees shoot to the sky
I wanna go somewhere
Where people aren’t afraid to say goodbye

Cause lifes to short to be lived on Sundays
In the end its all just names
Its ok because I already knew
Oh I, heard about you

Outerspace has claimed my eyes
It’s so dark now, I think I’ve died
Everything has gone black cold
The snow is creepin in and freezing my soul
Track Name: Nothing
What if this is everything?
Only one sun shines for your eyes
What will become of me?
A sinking black hole eternity

I don’t expect a thing

What if there isn’t anything?
Total silence and no pain
Who are you to take that away?
Someone who is scared of everything

I don’t expect a thing.
Track Name: Mr. Misanthropist
What if I say to you..you lost me too
Then, would you hold me next to you

FUCK
SHIT

I can't find a door
I am lost in it
I can't see a thing
It's more than you'd admit

Now the end is near
the only thing I fear
is that when I go
no one will know
Track Name: Autonomous Minor
The storm that passed fell into the river and swam to the sea
The oldest connection is a conviction that connects to me
Traveled through all these tunnels and everyone I see to find a hole
Can’t compare this to nothing, cause even nothing doesn’t know

The walls are comin down
Slow
Am I gonna be here without
You?

Consistently waiting for you to collapse and fold into my arms
Allowing love to trickle when and wherever it wants
No need for a portal for perception takes you where you wanna go
Desperation is decent but it provides direction home

Is it too far gone?
