Track Name: grape soda
was that you the other day?
saw you at the counter, but you didn't wave
saw you at the park & you didn't say hey
which one of us is not okay?

i showed up at the wrong time
everyone was still alive
grabbed a class & i took a sip
& i slipped off to the mothership

where do we go from here?
it used to all be so clear
but now it's faded & pixelated
where do we go from here?

but now i'm confused & so un-enthused
where do we go from here?
Track Name: gnome
i contemplate
i formulate
but i can never seem to initiate
white static walls
green bathroom stalls
the genie in the bottle deserves applause

oh, i'm running out of time
slowly, but surely losing my mind
i don't like to lie to you, the truth is so much worse

red-hatted gnomes
white dog food bowls
just cause you have an address doesn't mean you have a home
so go from here, destination unclear
somewhere that's warm and doesn't reek of yesteryear

oh, i'm running out of time
slowly, but surely losing my mind
i don't want to say goodbye so i guess i just won't
Track Name: plowjockey
i knew the earth wasn't round - there's an edge to this,
a knife that slits and cuts me down

i have no clue to what's next; it's an endless stress
i feel it as the breath escapes my (heaving) chest
Track Name: easy does it
so easy to be oblivious to what's happening around you
an accident or a slip of the tongue
doesn't always have to be the worst thing

why do I do this to myself ?

i wouldn't compromise or meet in the middle
i was vain & i was fickle; i was selfish
i never caught a glare so bitter
after i covered up your lies in believable disguise

why do i do this to myself ?

i could be better
i could be better to you
Track Name: yikes
yikes - that was a scary thought
riding bikes across the parking lot
mosquito bites on my best friend's arm
the chain goes slip - took a dip, took a fall

i don't know if i believe my memories
one day they'll be dead to me
one day we'll all just be a memory

hi - so strange to see you here
through your eyes i can see so clear
to the thoughts in your head, the books that you've read
that itch on your leg & the things that you dread
but i'm blind to everything that's real
Track Name: dangers
sometimes i hate the things
you people do
but i love every one of you
maybe if i could change
maybe if you could change
maybe i'd match your point of view

scratching, biting, clawing, snapping
itching, reaching for some answers
blinded, blacked out, floating, flailing
hopeless, waiting for a rescue
