she rides into town when i call and my conscience takes its leave. i see the moon light the way down and i lay out in the street. i surely could forget those nights we stuffed our stomachs and fucked like retirees. i’ll declare my hate for makeup when it leaves its proper place. i soak in the stain on my pillows, i’ve seen her paint her face. i smell my rotting flesh and bone. where once i thought i saw my brand new star, i found a black hole. she’s making all the wrong sounds, she’s putting all my fires out. she’s making all the wrong sounds, i’m faking all my interest now. i keep on waking up, don’t wanna keep on waking up. i’m pushing all my memories down, down down.
Track Name: Grown Up
i made my escape and prayed for tomorrow. i thought i was safe when you washed me away. but no, how we were so wrong about everything. and all we love, is it gone, can we find it again? i’ve been looking a long, long while and i can’t find another. fleeing the state and finding forgiveness. extracting the seed, existing control. you are so grown up. your mother would be proud, you finally cut him out. you say you’ll never find yourself while holding onto someone else, well i could never take you down.
Track Name: Home Is Where You Fake It
exhale the light. you've never been so high. stay out in tow. you've never been so low. and when your love turns to naught, dare you to say you thought you were ever there. you said you tried to live the lie. move in and out. i knew you would be the one to step down.
