Move my head into new space Begin decorating walls Organize all my thoughts by subject Leave a chair empty in the hall When you walk in I can say How've you been these days 'Tell me anything, entertain!' Blank face in an unfamiliar place You look like Christmas in April Warm sweater warm drinks Soft lighting from patient sunlight Hits your leg as the fog rolls in I wanna know How we think To avoid the escape From reality and the nerves That make me tired as soon as I'm awake So snap my fingers Break my arms and all my bones Help me build them back up Into the person that I was When I was 21 And I'll keep my pace Splitting thoughts To help filter through the ideas I've lost Distracted at home Cause I'm never alone

She says she's good As they are sitting side by side But the floors in her sight his intuition was right High five, well ok there's something that's certainly Not good About the way her face Matches the white walls, ducking phone calls Pacing quickly towards where he exits What's your game? What's your angle? It's been a good week This isn't how I thought I'd spend A Friday night again And now he's home He doesn't feel that bad the next day Woke up on the couch to friends being loud This my life now, maybe I need to Settle down Re-evaluate The way I've been thinking, clearly sinking I don't need to be asking you questions like What's your game? What's your angle? It's been a good week This isn't how I thought I'd spend A Friday night again It seems odd But it's important To engage myself in conversations in the morning I'm learning

Calibrate 01:40
It's been a long day Visiting your household On my birthday Sober faces scan the room awkwardly, noticing, that I don't think you're clean So I calibrate emotions in my brain. I think about you Now that I'm much older I can doubt you And the flame that you ignite by inviting me, shockingly, and bringing just yourself Why would I believe you here in hell? I don't really wanna show my cards Small talk in a neutral bar I said it all six years ago When you told me it was all my fault Now I'm feeling like I'm seizing up But in the morning I wake up I'm miles away
4.
Boroughs 01:49
Found your kit in a pile of your laundry Wonder if you could tell our family Im too young but I have a point here Hold your hand over half your face Just to see if you could focus on the road I hope so And then we move you away from Jamaica, Queens White sheets and a cleaner place to sleep And I've already learned my lesson You haven't aged since seventeen So I know that I should keep tradition up And give away your things secondhand Again, and again Cause I don't need your negative lifestyle I have support from my friends at home There's no metaphor to hide my anger But I'm ready to let this conversation go

Standard 03:17
Welcome back today's been a disaster Repairing myself from a difficult morning after Whitestone waves hello as I drive past it I'm talking aloud and alone in a Ford Fiesta casket Hold on to those nights in New York City A bottle of wine and a few debates were all I had in me Every street I yell down holds me to its standards How come it sounds nice when no one answers? It feels sincere How often I can disappear So I rely On shutting down when I arrive Swollen eyes High at night Uninspired So it's not as bad as it seemed at 18 But the memories greet me in my worst dreams I'll go home slow Please don't follow It feels sincere How often I can disappear So I rely On shutting down when I arrive Swollen eyes High at night Uninspired Fade out
6.
Repeat 02:00
Head spins forward half an hour To the time I spend beside these flowers I speak in cadence slow and weak As you prepare to leave Hail hits houses on my street Knocking closer as i sleep And to be quite honest I can't see An end to the noise I meet So fall In this seat Talk to me In this room That I can't Ever complete

Buck 02:45
Is it cool, if I leave Will that be alright The pressure is visible and cold I have a long ride at least I think so The same old album list On the bus, the same just feels alright I have a good life in a new place A queen sized bed for once I managed to make it down on my own The faint emotions are retreating The mood swings and the fights Until I click, then the same just feels alright I don't ask you don't tell me I don't ask I don't have to Reading messages you choose to ignore Leaving clothes thrown around on the floor I don't do that I don't do that Up at six just to look at my phone Spending way too much time on my own I don't do that I don't do that Just hold on I can't hear while you speak I'd rather leave and breathe a sigh of relief I can do that (He can do that) I can do that (He can do that) You can do that (You can do that) You should do that
8.
Think Tank 01:13
Hello, what happened to our surroundings You can make it without me for the first time in years And now, you have a much clearer vision Not a single decision could've changed anything So what do you think Is the best way out Is it pursuing the clear path or Moving out of our town So what do you think Is the best way out Does it feel false or Is this just getting loud Come on, I'm trying hard to stay patient Finding I'm not relating well i guess I'll just go

Every single day there is something I could say On this screen, typing keys But my articulation is fading away So I wait, wide awake Hurricane weather when it's 40 degrees 5 whole years, end up here With my high school mentality Until I go Out at night Find drugs to buy I wanna ask But I shouldn't lie About friends we had And those I try To keep a Hold on tightly Scared of everything I changed for I'll walk out Later on I wait around the corner and you wave So reserved, never heard of Sparking up conversations too late On the train, wrong again Ivy League education replaced With hate Lifetime of sheltered news on at 8 It's too late Until I go Slide the key Waste drinks on me I wanna ask But I shouldn't lie About friends we had And those I try To keep a Hold on tightly Scared of everything I changed for I'll walk out Okay, the bar is beginning to clear One thing, I needed this time spent here To reconnect With all the lies That you tell yourselves each night I wanna ask But I shouldn't lie Reunited tonight With all these Guys from high school Screaming nonsense Sick of waiting Cold walk home

Painting portraits in my brain New York apartment, pouring rain Are you still in? Avoiding questions I should have asked Haven't seen you since I've been back Where have you been? It's ok I figured you would say it like that Short phrase, wishing me a better path No truth, just secrets woven into Trick words, created by a coward Send me pictures from way upstate This will feel like a great mistake What do you know This conversation made me weak Turn my phone off, stay discrete You don't notice Fighting off the urge to resent you For all the things I lost when I met you Good friends, better off distant Hanging on til you decide you're ready to begin Painting pictures in my brain New calmness I can relate to I am all in
