Well he always asked why, What was worse My bed Or what you were prescribed Well I’ll spin Into the ground And i’ll sing about nuclear fallout With your head in the sand Cuz you’re not used to losing things And if you tell yourself you’ll be fine Will it work this time? Are you still avoiding me? Are you still avoiding me? Are you still avoiding me? Are you still avoiding me? Across from my shell I expelled And I covered my mouth Across my shell I expelled The tension right before we break When you told me to behave And now you want to clear the air? Well this was never going anywhere Well you’ll be fine You’ll be fine Trust me it will work this time, you’ll be fine You’ll be fine, and I’ll be

Underwater 04:31
I know how to breathe underwater I know how to make blades from broken mirrors I'm not some dying anecdote, decrepit bait in the sheets, no or a scene on repeat Well i'm not some dying anecdote, or a quiet apology I'm not some dying anecdote Well I was your dream, but you turned me into rain Your reactions led astray No revelation Exhaled wisdom on display You turned me into rain On a cycle of decay You turned me into rain But I know how to breathe underwater I learned how to make blades from broken mirrors I felt like a dying anecdote, a crooked fate wasting away with the sanctions in waves but I'm not some dying anecdote, or a corpse in the water I'm not some dying anecdote, I'm not some dying anecdote You turned me into rain I couldn't feign compliance Well I ran the explanation through a castle choking its way out Your sordid truth, your mournful speeches Well I had to claw my way out, to expel Your bat at my knees, I spent half a decade Acting like your fucking seed, on repeat, that cycle, a cycle on repeat

Wide Awake 03:15
Wake up Go to work Eat, sleep, dream Repeat, repeat, repeat Instead lay on a bed Of nails There is no how, there's only now Every worry Moves this body To breathe, to breathe, to breathe Instead hold my breath Thought I was sleeping But I'm wide awake Your God came to me And he said to me I can’t see, I can’t see, I can’t see, I can’t see There is no how There’s only now

When she went home, I know I should have tried a little more But I’m half-in, half-out It’s a front Well my skin is so thin I can’t be leaned on There might have been A point in time at a point in time But you can’t walk backwards when you’re behind A point in time, at a point in time Well a point in time, well a point What’s the point? You vilify And undermine my plan that never works out Well I can’t live half-in, half-out And I’ll ebb and go I’ll ebb and go, ebb and go, ebb and go Well I’m losing capital And he’s gaining on me Sorry, Your assembly confused I’ve tried to say what I want to say to you But nothing comes out right Because nothing I think is true This ain’t my God This ain’t my God This ain’t my God This ain’t my God This ain’t my God This ain’t my God This ain’t my God This ain’t my God

Wildcard 01:48
Well I think so For the first time I saw myself looking in and out, in and out, back and forth between the two Who knows? Well I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned this before But during all of our asymmetrical fucks, my thoughts were always there Stem accumulation Quarterized compartmentalization A weighted choice, cyclical self-doubt Capricious comparison A haunted field in the body of a clock Doomed against a wall And with a few How will it grow with one half-wilted and the other half alive Well it’s kind of a struggle just to keep them at bay the past few days The goal is to always have a great, great, great day
