Track Name: But I Am A Little Stitious
So now for the first time
I'll spill out my insides
To show you how I'm made up of
Everything you said I was
It's getting hard to stand on my own
But with you
I know I'll never go this alone

So I'll take a fair chance to explain this
Tuning with the rhyme and reason
To take in account
All of the things that we never
Get to talk about

So if my conscience
Let's me be myself
And I hide the way that I always felt
Maybe I can say these things with a
Straight face
And I know that I'm just so stubborn
And I know that I can't take cover
From the things that eat me alive
Blind all my sights
And keep me awake at night
They keep me awake at night

I keep my mouth sealed tight
With my eyes open wide
Though I'm stuck feeling so low
I still refuse to let go
I'm doing better than I let myself believe
And now to calmer seas
You've always kept your faith in me
That's just a debt that I could never repay

I swear if one thing is true
I'll be the best me for you
Track Name: Your Dad Sucks
Some memories are best left buried
And this is no exception
All the things you failed to mention
You've been wearing out a welcome
That you trailed for yourself
In spite of everything that we ever built

It's safe to say I'm okay
But still left restless today
Cold thoughts come creeping back
And I'm just not okay with that
You grew so used to turning heads
But now you just turn my stomach
So I'll do me
And you do you
Just like we always do

Stay under him
Because I'm so over you
I know all about that night
And I'm aware that you lied
I hope he tastes all of your mistakes
Then regrets you
Just like I do

I guess it's fine that you deny
Just what you thought that we had
I've pressed my luck
For better worth
Though spades dig deeper than that
Intentions clouded
Though impressions stick like
Glue to the earth
I stood my ground
To catch my breath
In hopes that I'd lift this curse

Of the mistakes
That I made
I'd say that you take
The first place
I'd love to scream these words
Right at your face
But since I can't
I'll just put it in pen
And hope these words
Leave you as alone as I've been

This is a brand new me
That's done with same old you
You're always first to apologize
And yet so reluctant to act
And I should expect nothing less from you

It's your fault that your hopeless
And no one knows this
It's my fault that my hopes were held
Too high for you
Track Name: Poinsettia
It never gets cold here
But I keep winter alive in my heart
I can't see my breath
Or what's left of my spirit
And this sun scorched grass just isn't enough
It wont save you or me
From the past present of future tense

It holds me in suspense
Thinking we can die here any moment
Would you even notice if I was absent
But I can tell that you haven't already
And that's the only thing that we're clear on
Track Name: Somehow I Manage
Most days it takes everything I have
Just to draw the shades of my eyelids
And get out of bed,
But today, somehow
The colors are all separating
Spectrum's I don't usually see
Like how I'd disappear if you stop looking at me

I can't stand it
Without you I'm transparent,
Barely visible,
And I've faded,
Into the, background of
Tagged images, blocked friends, and broken links

Most days it takes everything I have
Just to draw the shades of my eyelids
And get out of bed,
But today, somehow
The colors are all separating
Spectrum's I don't usually see

When the blue moon passes
And you text at 2 am,
Desperate for conversation,
I can't say I feel too receptive.
I twist the truth and say
I'm doing much better without you
You could always see right through the smoke in the room.

Most days it takes everything I have
Just to draw the shades of my eyelids
And get out of bed,
But today, somehow
The colors are all separating
Spectrum's I don't usually se

Drinking from dry throats,
The room is spinning in time,
Reading from red eyes
I left this note behind the lines,
I shouldn't have to repeat myself,
But need I remind you,
The longing doesn't sleep,
It drags out into weeks

Sitting,
Starring,
Wide awake

I twist the truth and say
I'm doing much better without you,
You could always see right through
The smoke in the room.
Track Name: The Swanson Pyramid Of Greatness
I know I always seem persistent
When I wanted things
But I show patience
Just to show you how I needed this
I see you're different
And I promise you I'll show you this
Cause in the end you know
I'll always be your everything

I always think about our long drives
And missing turns
Just to make sure that we sing every word
So just speak now
And tell me how you feel out loud
Tell be how you feel right now

So I'll keep my ear
Tight to the floor
I need to let you know
If I could watch the sunset
Like we did that night
Maybe I can fall asleep
The way I do by your side

Just think how far we came
Down the coast line
From Old Lines to Sunshine
Just to arrive where we knew
We belonged all along

This is all that I asked for
More than I dreamed for
I'm not giving this up
And I'm not pushing my luck
