Track Name: no way of knowing
Misery and distress
I'm afraid to access.
Temporary acrobats,
we're stumbling in steepness.
Now I'm in your room,
and you're in the shower.
Can this last forever?
Can this last forever?

There's no way of knowing now.
We just have to wait to find out.
And that's just what I intend to do.
I will wait with you.

But if I go back to Portland,
will I ruin everything?
Cut ties with the only ones I love entirely?
But now it feels like I'm slipping,
and there's so much to consider,
but I'll love you forever.
I'll love you forever.

There's no way of knowing now.
We just have to wait to find out.
And I am alright with that.
In life not knowing is a fact.

There's no way of knowing now.
We just have to wait to find out.
And that's just what I intend to do.
I will wait with you.
Track Name: something
You act like I don't know anything that you know.
You act like I don't care about those things that you care about
even though I thought if you'd cared, you'd want others to too.

I don't think that you could understand.
I don't expect you to understand.
Please don't ask me to understand.

You are hardest one to please.

So quit trying to say it's my fault that you are unsatisfied
when I can tell it's not satisfaction that you are looking for.
The world was not made for you.
You have to make it what you want it to.

But you are the hardest one to please.

We could keep driving.
We could keep driving and never turn our backs,
but what would be the point of that?
If you knew, then would it make you smile?
Could we just play dumb for a while?
Track Name: better
I feel at home in the yellow light from the lamp by my bedside.
It flickers through the night,
While you dream of things you could never adequately describe
And I lie miles away.
I lie miles away.

When you go home, you find parts of you that you forgot to know.
We’re becoming strangers, and things are getting better.
And all I thought you took I’m starting to remember.
You’ll never have me.
You never did.


I feel right looking with my friends up at the starlight
We’re humbled and terrified by the smallness of our lives.
One day we will die. I have no time for your diatribes.
No time.
No time.

Your malice turned bitter, as you choked on your words.
A strained apology, scripted without feeling.
Do you even remember?

Could it be good? Could it be good enough?
Could you find something and let it fill you up?
Could it be good? Could it be good enough?
Will you ever learn how to love?
