Shark Bait 03:07
We left our troubles in Maryland 685 miles away Today we leave in our canoe A new life painted deep blue Let's take a trip out at sea Where we're going doesn't matter much to me Shark bait, you and me I don't care we could die happily The waves, the current, and this view of you The northern air, this carefree feeling too We'll set fire to old school books Lord of the Flies, Catcher in the Rye
I'm just a fucked up kid Trapped in a fucked up man I'm wide awake This nightmare never ends. There's something wrong with me Old habits die so hard I'm nothing but a shard of my former self Wish I was someone else Someone good There's nothing wrong with me
I'm downtown at night Alcohol and pale moonlight Old wooden doors Stone steps and stained glass windows Can you hear me? Can you hear me this time? Can you hear me? I'm screaming out to you I'm just a boy with a curious mind Never satisfied with the answers I find Maybe someday this will all make sense For now I feel impaled by the wrought iron fence I stumble inside I'm drunk and stupid so I rest my head A silhouette on the pew A million other things I'd rather do Alone in the dark Laughing in confession Can you hear me this time? Silence whispers back to me You're just a boy with a curious mind Never satisfied with the answers you find Maybe someday this will all make sense For now you're crucified on the wrought iron fence I'm just a boy crucified on the fence
Pennsylvania countryside Last couple ounces of pride Laughing and talking all the way Old houses rest in decay We hugged goodbye and I dropped you off I drove around just to see the town Route 15 the whole way home Future unknown I'm next in line But I ripped my ticket You still call my name So I run away The holy ghost and the civil war And biblical folklore Happy hour on the weekday Which path will I take?
Rat's Nest 00:45
The harder I try not to think The deeper in my head I start to sink Insanity is on the brink Won't you pour me one more drink? I look in the mirror and I see someone else It's been so long since I've felt like myself Sleep is the only time that I feel at ease Why oh why won't this anxiety cease? When I was a kid I couldn't wait to grow up Now I'm in my twenties and I'm feeling stuck I didn't appreciate the things that I had They're gone for good and they'll never come back
Lonely Eyes 02:38
I know you waist deep So why can't I keep you close to me? Pink hair and purple knees with constant anxiety In this room we lay as trees deep rooted without any leaves You stare at me emptily until you fall asleep and forget me And I'll try to hide the guise that we'll be just friends So she'll cry with lonely eyes but we'll be just friends Dark red, blue, and green on that first night you noticed me Thigh to thigh, hand in hand I passively listened to your plans about road trips and family and how you liked to talk to me You stare at me emptily until you fall asleep and forget me It's okay to be just friends
Wake up staring at the wall Small talk with myself Dry eyes Superficial demands I fix a drink and go to sleep Cue the end to my hopeless grandeur vision There's no silver lining in inherent indecision I roll my eyes back I see nothing Easily fixated Stubbornly unmotivated I'm like a dying bird drying out in the sun Leave me to die I am happy Drifting from day to day Freak out occasionally I play guitar and try to sing I forget almost everything This is the end A boring story with a weak plot Everything was going fine, but now it's null and void
Every year I miss it more than the year I did before Memories of days past, they seem so long ago Every year I miss it more Then you walked through the door Tastes and smells linger behind Images burned in my mind Smoky autumn air and days of innocence Every day I miss it more Then we walked through the door
So Confused 03:06
It's so easy to say what they don't want you to say It's even easier to see that it's not about me Every time I think I'm right it turns out I don't know Every time I think I'm wrong it turns out I don't know I'll just sit here on my hands and act like I don't know The only thing I know for sure is that I don't know I don't know where to start because I'm so far behind So I'll dive right in and sink to the ocean floor SOS! Could you please tell me where to go? I'll do my best to understand, but please talk slow I must digress because I'm starting to be so confused The only thing I know for sure is that I don't know
