Track Name: gotta stay in
oh these walls can't talk to themselves
fill up their shelfspace without some help

i'll keep them company for awhile, for just awhile
so i can't be your company for awhile, for just awhile

i gotta stay in,
in with my friends,
these four walls

i gotta stay in,
in with my friends,
these four walls
Track Name: song of your skin
you'll hear it as you're sleeping
you'll hear it as you wake
you'll hear if you don't want to
hear it everyday

it's the sound of your skin
as it loses its elastic
taste on your lips
your grandfather's passing
it's the sound of your skin
as it loses its elastic

it's a god damn joke

it started as a hum
but now it's always ringing
a song you cannot sing
as if it were worth singing

it's the sound of your skin
as it loses its elastic
taste on your lips
your grandfather's passing
it's the sound of your skin
as it loses its elastic

it's a dirty joke
told by your folks
to the only girl
that you ever brought home

it's the sound of your skin
as it loses its elastic
taste on your lips
your grandfather's passing
it's the sound of your skin
as it loses its elastic

it's a dirty joke
Track Name: awkward phrases
don't call out my name
i'm not indebted to you
don't call out my name
do you understand?
don't call out my name
i'm not indebted to you
somewhere behind my shame
there's awkward phrases

though many years have passed
your voice it has not changed
your voice it has not changed

i hear it in the wind
the songs you used to sing
the songs you used to sing

don't call out my name
i'm not indebted to you
don't call out my name
do you understand?
Track Name: you are my beatrice
you are that broken bottle
when all i need's one sip
you are that empty needle
i really just need a fix
you are that point of reference
when i ceased to grow
you are the one i think of
surrounded but all alone

but when i think of you
i think you're my beatrice
you're the bad news
when i'm tryna stay positive

i want a shallow pond for my courtyard
too many fish swimming in my pond

i want a shallow pond for my courtyard
too many fish swimming in my pond
