Track Name: too far away
I don’t mind bein alone

I just stare
at the faces on the screen
wondering
what it’s like to be with them
living
the way they are
living

but I don’t mind bein alone

I don’t care
if my own mother accuses me
of being
too far away
cuz I know
just where I am
yeah I know

I don’t mind bein alone
Track Name: into the light
I freak out all day
and meditate
wishing I could go home
where I sit n cry,
“please let me die
tonight alone in my room”

cryin, “hold me down
I’m freaking out
I can’t, not now
please, let me out”

so i step outside
into the light
breath and laugh and say “fuck,
can’t believe
it still bothers me
you ain’t a part of my life”
Track Name: keep it hid
I been on many things at once
ain’t nothin I’m proud of
just somethin I did
ain’t tryin to keep it hid

things been bad before
just got a whole lot worse
I’m just tryin to deal
with the way I feel
I’m just tryin to deal
with how I feel

I’m cryin in my front yard
watchin the world burn
as I finally let go
I can see through the smoke
I can see through the smoke
as I let go
as I finally let go
as I let go
Track Name: years later
well, you wrote me
“never let go
of the feeling
you got when you
were beneath me
lyin on the floor
laughin, ‘I can’t take no more’”
but I fucked it all up

well, you told me
“just let it go”
but you know me
I got more wound up
so you told me
“please calm down”
but you know me
I’m freakin out
I fucked it all up

well, you fucked me
when I was young
n years later
I come undone
when you left me
lyin on the floor
sobbing, “I can’t take no more”
I fucked it all up
Track Name: it ain't real
there ain’t a day in my life
it ain’t crossed my mind
it was you who brought the light
so I don’t care
you ain’t here
it’s alright

though I find
myself cryin
from time to time
I ain’t tryin to forget
cuz I don’t wanna yet
I don’t wanna forget
forget it

I’m so glad you were in my life
I’ve said it ten thousand times
it’s where I found the light
can’t believe it’s here
after all these years
guess you were right
when you wrote
“it’s all in your head
you gotta let go
of all of it
it ain’t real”
Track Name: just for kicks
wake up in the mornin lonely
been up all night grindin my teeth
how did I get here?
and which door do I take to leave?

I wanna go somewhere I ain’t never been
and when I get there
I ain’t coming back again
I know I fucked up
too many times
and I know I gotta leave it all behind
but I can’t
I try
but I can’t
don’t know why
but I can’t
I try
but I can’t

why do you think we’re here?
is it just for kicks or is there
something for us to find
as we stand around saying “nevermind”
Track Name: early morning summer
early morning summer
sent me searchin
down on the corner
in austin, tx
then down to the river
where once I was high
but this morning
ain’t got no light

I’m so tired of life
I’m threatenin myself
with a knife
pointed at my skull
thinkin that i
could pry you loose
maybe I
could pry you loose
pry you loose

somewhere over the bridge
think I got it
been alone
since I started walking
was never no one
by my side
n everything I did I did
to stay alive

now I’m so tired of life
I’m threatenin myself
with a knife
pointed at my skull
thinkin that i
could pry you loose
maybe I
could pry you loose
pry you loose
Track Name: to the floor
cryin on the floor
“can’t take no more
cryin on the floor”

I wanna go home
for awhile
I wanna go home
and cry
“is there where I was headed
all these years? to the floor
in tears.”

cryin, “please let me go
can’t take no more
cryin on the floor”

I don’t wanna die
everyday
but there’s times
it’d be ok
to disappear
for awhile
so I ain’t here
cryin
Track Name: like sinkin
I been told
since I was a child
“let it go”
you know if took awhile
to take hold
of all the things inside
I know
are fucking up my life

but I feel good tonight
carefree and high
but I know
I ain’t let go

I got old
but I kept thinkin,
“you know
livin’s like sinkin
in a hole
I dug for myself
with fear, pain and doubt”
but I feel good tonight
carefree and high
but I know
I ain’t let go
Track Name: u r everything
nothing in your life ever happened
without you
no livin, no dyin
without you
no smiles, no cryin
without you
no trees, no breeze, no nothin
without you

you got this
way of being
that touches
everything
without you
there’s nothing
u r everything
