Track Name: Postcards
Said you're going on a vacation
said your heading down to a beach
well baby its snowing here
all I've got left is beer
The fridge is empty and I'm too afraid to leave

Send me postcards when you're away
Let me know that, youre still okay

Include a picture for me to see
becoming wise becoming worldly
I was never good enough, couldn't be what you need
Im flad you left, glad you got away from me
Verse 2
Im stuck glued to this couch
have the tv on while I'm blacking out
The only way i can fall asleep
is when i don't remember my head hitting the sheets

Stamp is 35 cents
but I cant afford my rent
Im flunking out
just hoping
your letters been sent

include a note
for me to read
tell me how you're doing
are you finally free?
Track Name: College Dream
you told me your living the college dream
wake up on a different couch every morning
never too sure where you are
never mind where you're going

spent a year my couch
then told me you wanted out
you ate all my food
now what am i supposed to do

I never really know whats going on
the worlds crumbling to the tune of a song
you said california is just a step away
I said im moving east to the mitten state

Throwing up in a bar bathroom stall
holding back the tears, holding back it all
let it go like disney princess
get up off the floor you look like a mess

six figure job in your future
climbing the corporate ladder
put me in a suit and a tie
put me in the board room i wanna die
Track Name: Rendezvous
Call me on the telephone or text me the place
Meet me at the park, in the darkest realms of space
I may have had a drink or two
while waiting for that text or call from you

Or meet me at the porch
its screened in
Or meet me at the door
Im knocking
Or meet me on the road
we’re driving
Or meet me in my room
Im waiting

You kissed me on the couch
Im blushing
You whispered psalms about
Nothin
You told took the words right out
of my mouth
And left me with nothing
to talk about

Just me you and rendezvous
Can I count, Can I count on you
Will you meet me too?

My car might break down on the way to you
But Ill walk till I wear out my shoes
Theres nothing that can keep me from you
Ill jump through all the hoops you put me through
I’ll scale all the wall you built up too
My car might break down on the way to you
but ill make it to you

You kissed me on the couch
Im blushing
You whispered psalms about
Nothin
You told took the words right out
of my mouth
And left me with nothing
to talk about
Track Name: Stay
you said you're running and you're never looking back
Your vapid eyes staring into the pitch black
back at me, I'm not what you want to see
and I acknowledge that

My face is getting older, by the day
my heart is colder than to was previously
My hands are empty Im wondering where it all went

Lips quiver when I try to lie
eyes close when i wish to die
put me in my old dark place
a hole i dug in my early twenties
why don't you just fill it in

Showed me a picture of yourself as a kid
Had a smile, the innocents you've since shed

Always told me the eyes are a portal to the soul
I tried to borrow it, you told me to let go
I wished and prayed
played the sinner played the saint

Ill ry to be what you want me to be
Ill be the actor, play your hearts thief

and I know that its time to go
but I'm moving slow cause I'm hoping for

you to ask me to stay
at least another day
to sleep in your bed
you’ve always messed with my head
Track Name: I'm Always Tired (Joyce Manor Cover)
(Lyrics by Joyce Manor)

I’m always tired.
I’m always at least half asleep.
Blemish and state how I don’t feel great now.
I don’t hang out in her hair.
I don’t wonder if she cares.
I lay awake now, I entertain my plans
To one day miraculously be talkative and likable,
To wake up as someone else, someone I know is inside of me,
Just waiting to be put to use by something much more sharp than us.
They pry out every fucking piece and still they’re coming around again.
Track Name: Summer Slumber
Stuck in a basement so cold
Wishing to warm my bones
Will you Be my blanket tonight
Ill build a fire that'll last our whole lives
The seasons they come and go
Just another thing i cannot hold

Jealous lovers, under covers tonight.
a summer slumber, brought lies to lights

Now all the beer is gone
Your playing all your favorite songs.
Once in awhile you'll play one of mine
dancing from time to time
you pass out on your bedroom floor
And i leave out the apartments back door

Jealous lovers, under covers tonight.
a summer slumber, brought lies to lights

You see me running down the city roads
Moving with no place to go
Your like a treadmill i cannot see
You're everything that I cannot be
Wishing for a change of pace
living life like its just a race
Your just a face to me

And I am the way i am
Cant change the man I’ve been
The past is always past
Now lets break all future plans
Track Name: Dark Songs
I found you in a dream last night
You were happy, i knew things weren't quite right
I put on my shoes, looked away from you
Saw you with the knife, and begged for my life

I kissed you on the mouth
backed up you fell off the couch
But you got back on
fell asleep till dawn
WOke up in the morning with you by my side

its all a dream
its not ever what it seems
the thoughts are only in my head
mutual exclusive
hoping to become lucid
so i can be with you again
in a fictitious land

These dark songs in my head
won't go away anytime soon
Im thinking of you

These dark songs in my head
won't go away anytime soon
beat myself black and blue

I woke up from a dream last night
I was kissing you
I felt dirty and cheap
cause its not the real you

These dark songs in my head
won't go away anytime soon
Still thinking of you

These dark songs in my head
won't go away anytime soon
Ive learned to accept the truth
Track Name: Forts
I smoked a cigarette on my porch
and watched a bird build its fort
It reminded me of the ones we built as kids
when we first started to kiss

And now the winters come
illuminated by the summer sun
mistakes made every year
cant stop my biggest fears

and Now I'm going back to bed

Inhaled with the purpose of growing cancer cells
drunk texts all night long
unraveling, coming undone
Set my fire to my house

If Im lucky I will not make it out
like a cigarette burning, from the inside out
Call my name - just one last time
it wont be the same - I'm a waste of your time

and now I’m going back to bed
