Track Name: n.mvmnt.mov
you think you can love
cause you’re better than everyone else
skin quivers and hums
a machine shouldn’t think of itself
to be

you feel no movement
but you’re world has changed now
something is lost in the dawn’s glow
you wipe the memory, reboot, and start over
every night repeats

blood, bite your tongue
cause they treat you like everyone does
you think they can love
but men can only think of themselves
not to be

you feel no movement
but you’re world has changed now
something is lost in the dawn’s glow
you wipe the memory, reboot, and start over
every night repeats

you feel no movement
but you’re world has changed now
something is lost in the dawn’s glow
Track Name: maps_v3
white trash florida
the skinny guys love the big girls down there
they say you've never had a blow job
until it had a southern accent
drive across the whole damn state
to watch the sunrise in daytona
play some acid trivia games
with your father's new step daughter

tell me how to get away
I don't know if I will but I'd like to
draw me a map today
where to go if I want to meet you

i took a plane to florida
to meet you on our old playground
show me yours, i’ll show you mine
fifteen years passed overnight
drive across the whole damn state
to wake up sweating in your arms
all our friends are role playing
mothers, fathers, dungeon masters

tell me how to get away
I don't know if I will but I'd like to
draw me a map today
where to go if I want to meet you

i need a map of florida with the exits clearly marked
Track Name: l'idiot
you stack two five
come out swinging
instead of
acting cool
you wake up drunk and
can’t remember
if you ended as the fool

you fall down flat the
TV is static
the floor is
gonna change
her light burns bright in
darkest corners
she couldn’t
heal your pain

maybe you won
maybe you won
maybe you won
maybe you won
but does it really matter
after all that you’ve done
Track Name: breathe.vol
turn to one side
and let yourself go
in my arms sown tight
hands turn way too slow
they did this to you
why do this to me
a muscle flinches
a lover cuts itself free

breathe
stop breathing
breathe

anti-native life
where nothing comes for free
palm trees lie
your reflections look like me
we tried this too soon
genetics trap, laid mines

breathe
stop breathing
breathe

hold me down
you’ll see
it comes out of my hands
out of my hands
it stings

head down
highways tonight

fall down
stay with me
now that i’m clean
now we can breathe
Track Name: no way out
a puzzle on the floor
a life now in pieces
questions outside door

a mistake leaves a scar
a life stained with memories
tears this heart apart

can you please find me?
no way out
can you please fix me?
no way out
can you please save me?
no way out
then can you please sing to me a last lullaby?

all day asleep
swallowing thorns
a heart that’s in too deep

these whispers have echoed
into a pulsating white noise
giving life to the shadows

can you please find me?
now way out
can you please fix me?
no way out
can you please save me?
no way out
then can you please sing to me a last lullaby?
Track Name: amnesia.Rb.Ap.48
i have no memory
i am forgetting this conversation as we are having it
it’s not that i don’t care about what you are saying
i am desperately hanging on your every word
i am watching your lips and tongue as you speak
i am absorbing your breath
i adore you
but any minute now you will stand up and make your exit
the flowing grey streaks in your hair
the fading sent of vanilla that remains as you leave

i have no memory
but this dull aching knot in my stomach
the shape of your eyes and soft curve of your nose
leaving me slowly
i have no memory
i of course do not remember when it left me or why
was there an argument
did i get drunk and say something i didn’t mean
did it choose to stay in one of the warmer climates
where i had once lived
i have no memory of not being this alone

it was my mistake summer went away
it was my mistake
it was my mistake summer puzzle breaks
it was my mistake

i have no memory
it’s not clear that i have an historical basis for being here
i feel like a tourist
observing the machines and emotions
human connections
someone goes into surgery
they give you coffee
someone dies and they offer you a cheese plate
someone hold my hand
as we watch you go

it was my mistake summer went away
it was my mistake
it was my mistake summer puzzle breaks
it was my mistake
