Waterford 01:48
You've got me so pinned and tied I'm a motivational speaker with too much pride. There's not a lot here to hide there's a history that lives, it'll never die. Challenge: the day that lays ahead. My thoughts have cut me down to stem to expose vulnerable passions in a non faltering fashion. You've got me so damn inspired, I'm a pusher now so let me stretch and stride. There's not a lot here to hide. There's a history that lives it'll never die. Never gonna go back again, I hope we never go back again.
Merit 02:25
Please tell me where I'm supposed to feel All knowing authority, tell me what is real "Sympathetic, so pathetic, a cry for peer appeal" oh sympathy, "It's not for me" Tell me what merits my time Cross-armed educator, tell me what is fine And there's, not a cause you wouldn't fight Judgmental, fundamental, what have you done that's "right"? oh sympathy, "It's not for me" And you're all the same Won't call out names I own my shame And I'll strive for change I'll push and strain You’ll spin the blame and I'll push and strain
Chasing tails I'm losing time to keeping track of blatant lies it's true, I've given up on you. It's a parade of dogs.
Dresden 02:11
do you feel that I'm alive? and if not when would have I died? sometimes I feel at loss here, a life in shambles let me go, I tend to ramble, but it goes on and was I just another portrait on the mantle a step for you to round out your perfect portfolio I used to think that we all had good intentions, right don't lay your faith in people, but it goes on
Home 02:39
cracked church parking lots and scraped softball knees surrounded by agriculture and wind-battered trees when this is over will this still be home? when I am gone, will this still be home? Hills like fisherman knuckles I'm standing on rocks as your wind picks my bones am I getting old, or have I gotten cold lately I can't tell which way is home
Livyers 03:01
March 01:51
I can't sleep lately, I think it's getting to me. It's like I'm in the tenth grade all over again, I didn't have an answer for it back then. Give Never Meant twenty more spins and maybe then, my mind will mend.
Tidal Waves 04:21
Caught at it again My days burn like cigarettes It’s ambitious from the get go I’ll break down before I let go Life’s slow monotony has come to eat away at me All this settling will soon decide where I’m buried It’s been like this for too many days to count I’ll say I’m coping, it’s hard to scale when I’ll fall out Restless nights, I’ll put this on myself I’ll say I’m coping, it’s hard to scale when I’ll fall out Maybe when I’ve given up I’ll learn just how to patch this up I’ll lose a limb but gain a heart It’s not ideal, but it’s a start Cut us off from our home towns If we stay we’re bound to drown Old habits soar like Tidal Waves They crash on me, I’m bound to cave
