Pink Lady 05:26
pink lady is the apple of my eye shes so sweet and dressed just how i like a little bit red mixed with white shes so crispy and bright just what i require got what it takes a fruit that i desire ohhh take those grapes from the vine turn em into vinegar and wine they already taste fine they already taste fine welcome to a world of new normals at every chance grab a hold of what feels palpable so intense it's almost tangible substantially real livining in ant-farm that's unstable im unstable this year maybe forever possibly always cant remember past the doorway always forgetting manipulating my surroundings i claim it's not for personal gain but i dont know what i want most days people taking my advice still afraid that im not right im not right sometimes cant be right all of the time pink lady is the apple of my eye shes so sweet just what i desire take those grapes from the vine turn them into vinegar and wine

Outlets 02:27
I got swollen plans and chemical crutches no place to be and everywhere to go my mind races like a dogs dreamin' feet chasin' something no one else can see but i swear in some dimension it's worth the fight to be a lightning rod when lightning strikes and oh i hope these growing pains teach me to bend in half and hug my legs i got chemical plans and a heart that blushes for the mystery of the times that i can't smile when love corners me with it's embrace im a million miles away and you can see it on my face but i swear in some dimension it's worth the fight to be a lightning rod when lightning strikes and oh i hope these growing pains teach me to feel the stars and grow beyond my shame the pressure in this atmosphere drives everyone insane ill just have to bend in half and hug my legs

You're Good 04:53
why are you so good why are you so good to me why are you so good why are you so good to me my burdens not yours to carry but you hold it well yeah you hold it well feeling so far away from myself from myself what would i do without you what would i do without you without you without you watch you grind your teeth away it's all because of me wonder if i should leave have to focus what is the purpose water to cure this

stuck inside another day of feeling empty fucked up with pride and entropy that's never ending will i patch the holes and fix the leaks or listen when my brother speaks or melt into a sludge of apathy the only voice of reason trembles with anxiety it can't convince the paint to lay upon the wall I know that I can stand up but the body won't comply bound by thoughts that cant be real or a lie twitch of my lip, a bit of numbness, i question my state of mind and im up all night hallucinationg, keep telling myself that im fine but i cant...i cant.. i cant regulate my thoughts put my emotions on a chopping block with a little pill that swallows me hole like a room thats full of carbon monoxide you can't tell sometimes wrong till you're already dying and the only cure is to breathe but the air outside is just as toxic, you just have to get used to the diesease so i cant promise to be honest cause the truth would paralyze the inertia of our atoms giving voice to our designgs i feel so far away from anyone that's been my friend i can't count the times i tried to help like i can't count on them so i can't be poetic and i can't tell the truth so i hold my tongue, and wander off, not sure what to do sometimes i dont care how the story ends the news feed, the music scene, the global capital industry make the peace i need intangible one coast is underwater, another one is burning down countless lives are slaughtered to build up bigger bank accounts our mothers and our daughters abused because we shut our mouths i cant be my own author cause all this bullshit drowns the music out beauty looks for stones by the lake dredged up to the beach by the moon exposing pockets of violent heat somehow made elegeant and smooth so i trace the lines of history a circuit board of stone an ancient lost technology underneath my toes walking up and down the rocky beach get a little further away from everything i think that we are all afraid and we're not made to see these lights and lies for all our lives we swim against the stream if we told the truth we'd just sink

Dark Matter 04:00
I've been numb to hollywood emotion and honesty that lies in your bed is it possible to betray a heart open to everything and in the process be mislead? searching for the words to say our emptiness gets in the way and i dont want to feel like this my friend I dont want to be the needle in your skin when the forest grows it's not because of what we know digging for diamonds in the sand it's in your heart to come apart, believe that you're not who you are when you separate yourself to understand searching for the words to say our emptiness gets in the way and i dont want to feel like this my friend don't want to be a lesson for you to comprehend i was told long ago it's not who you are but who you know a picture i would ignite once again this world, it is the darkest place when drawn inside negative space it's in our hands to color it in searching for the words to say our emptiness gets in the way and i dont want to feel like this my friend i want to be a blank canvas and a pen
