Track Name: Marathon
MESSY AND STUPID AND DULL AND OUT OF CONTROL
THE INTELLECTUAL GRAPE VINE GETS PULLED AND THEN TOLD
PAPERBACK RIDDLED WITH THE RIGHT PAGES DOGEARED
MY HEART IS FULL AND MY EYES ARE RED BUT STILL CLEAR
OH LORD
COME DOWN HERE AND GIVE ME A PAT ON THE BACK
YA I’M STRONG ENOUGH WITHOUT ANYMORE OF YOUR GOD GIVEN STRENGTH
POINT ME IN THE DIRECTION OF THOSE GOLDEN PEARL GATES
I’VE GOT ROCKS IN MY CHEST AND GARBAGE FOR BRAINS
SO I’M STANDING MY GROUND AND I WON’T BE PERSUADED
I’VE DECIDED MYSELF THAT I COULD USE A CHANGE AND
I’D BE SILLY TO THINK THAT I’VE BEEN WELL BEHAVED
BUT THE MESSES I’VE MADE BECAME YOUR FAVOURITE STAINS

WELCOME ME INTO YOUR ARMS
I’VE SACRIFICED IN ALL OF YOUR HONOUR
WITH A TOOTHLESS GRIN AND SOME CHARM
LET ME LEAD YOU AWAY FROM THAT SLAUGHTER

THE WRITER’S WORLD FAME IS
WELL
MUCH LESSER KNOWN
BUT THE ANTICS WILL DICTATE HOW THOSE READINGS WILL GO
AND THE BEST SELLER SHELF
IT WAS NEVER THE GOAL
BUT THE BILLS NEED TO BE PAID AND
THE WORDS NEED TO BE SOLD

WELCOME ME INTO YOUR ARMS
I’VE SACRIFICED IN ALL OF YOUR HONOUR
WITH A TOOTHLESS GRIN AND SOME CHARM
LET ME LEAD YOU AWAY FROM THAT SLAUGHTER
LET ME LEAD YOU AWAY FROM THAT SLAUGHTER
LET ME LEAD YOU AWAY FROM THAT SLAUGHTER
WE CAN FIND SOMETHING BETTER AND DARKER
LET ME LEAD YOU AWAY

WHAT WAS DEDICATED TO THE SOUL
NOW BELONGS TO THE SELL
WE SET THE SAILS AND LET THE
SHIP GUIDE ITS SELF
AND WHEN IT FINALLY SINKS WE WON’T BLAME OURSELVES
BUT TAKE THE NAMES OF THE ONES THAT ACTUALLY DOVE INTO HELP

WISHFUL THINKING
THEN RETREATING
FOLLOWING BLINDLY
INTO THE FOG
THE NATURE OF WRONG
TRAILING LIKE SHIT
RIGHT BEHIND YOU
UNTIL YOU’RE GONE
Track Name: 24/7
24/7


WHERE’S THE FIRE?
WHERE’S THE BURN?
TOO FAR NOW TO RETURN

WHERE’S THE PASSION?
WHERE’S THE HEAT?
STRONGER NOW BUT NOT COMPLETE

I’M BURNING LIKE THE CACTUS IN THE DESERT
I’M BURNING LIKE THE DOG IN THE SUMMER STREET
I’M OPEN 2/4 7
IT’S TAKING ITS TOLL ON ME

I’M THE SMOKE THAT GLADLY BLOWS YOUR WAY
I’M THE VOICE WITH A MELODY OF PAIN
I’M THE GRAVITY SHIFTING YOUR POSITION
THEY WANT HELL
I’M HERE TO GRANT THEIR WISHES

BETTER PEOPLE THAN YOU OR I
HAVE LOST THAT SPARK FOR LIFE

I’M THE THOUGHTS YOU KEEP PUSHING BACK THERE
I’M THE SECRETS YOU NEVER WANT TO TELL
I’M THE LOSS THAT FINALLY SINKS IN
I’M THE GUTS THAT YOU WANT TO SPILL

WHERE’S THE FIRE?
WHERE’S THE BURN?
TOO FAR NOW TO RETURN

WHERE’S THE PASSION?
WHERE’S THE HEAT?
STRONGER NOW BUT NOT COMPLETE

I’M BURNING LIKE THAT ENDLESS DESIRE
I’M BURNING LIKE HOPE AND POVERTY
I’M BURNING LIKE THE PEN IN MY HAND
WRITING WORDS I DON’T WANT TO READ

I’M BURNING LIKE THE CACTUS IN THE DESERT
I’M BURNING LIKE THE DOG IN THE SUMMER STREET
I’M OPEN 24/7
IT’S TAKING ITS TOLL ON ME

I’M BURNING WITHOUT A CHANCE
Track Name: Dog Parks
THE GOLDEN AGE OF DEFEAT
CAR LEASE
HIGH RENT
NO SLEEP
LIFE REALLY CREPT UP THEN DECEIVED
ME
INTO THINKING THAT
I
HAD A DREAM

WELL, THINGS ARE LOOKING UP AREN’T THEY?
DOG PARKS
IPA
WELL,
THINGS ARE LOOKING UP AREN’T THEY?
DAY JOBS
MISTAKES

THE GOLDEN AGE OF DEFEAT
CAR LEASE
HIGH RENT
NO SLEEP
LIFE REALLY CREPT UP THEN DECEIVED
ME INTO THINKING THAT
I HAD A DREAM

WELL, THINGS ARE LOOKING UP AREN’T THEY?
CAR LEASE, DREAMS CHANGE
WELL, THINGS ARE LOOKING UP AREN’T THEY?
DOG PARKS,
IPA

WELL,
IT’S EASY TO BE MISERABLE
WHEN YOU’RE WAITING TOO LONG FOR YOUR MACCHIATO
AND IT’S EASY TO BE DISAGREEABLE
WHEN YOU MARRIED INTO ALL OF HIS PROBLEMS
AND IT’S EASY TO GET LOST IN THAT
TIP CUP ON THE COUNTER
WITH A COUPLE BILLS FROM THE REGISTER
NO REAL ACTION THERE BUT YOUR FUTURES
SEEM SIMPLE AND TETHERED

TO THIS GOLDEN AGE OF DEFEAT
CAR LEASE
HIGH RENT
NO SLEEP
Track Name: Switch Off
I’VE OFFERED MYSELF UP FOR A CHANGE OF PACE
ONE WHERE I COULD LOVE EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING
UNCONDITIONALLY
OR,
WELL,
WITH SOME CONDITIONS PENDING
BUT MORE OR LESS IN THE POSITIVE DIRECTION I’M SENDING

ALL I HAD TO DO WAS SWITCH OFF
ALL I HAD TO DO WAS SWITCH OFF
ALL I HAD TO DO WAS SWITCH OFF
ALL I HAD TO DO WAS SWITCH

THEN THINGS GOT ALL HAZY
THE LIGHTS GOT ALL LAZY
LIKE THEY WERE SHIFTING THEIR WEIGHT IN THE SPACE
IT FELT CRAZY BUT KIND OF AMAZING
LETTING THAT DIMENSION SLIP INSIDE ME
IN A T-SHIRT THAT SAID ‘EVERYDAY IS FRIDAY’

THEN GOOD OL’ LUCIFER HE STEPPED IN
HE SAID ‘LET’S PROTECT HIM’
HE WAS DRESSED SO MAJESTIC
I WAS PRETTY IMPRESSED WITH MYSELF IN HIS REFLECTION
HE SAID
‘LET ME LIVE ON IN YOUR TRENDS, C’MON MAN! DON’T JUST THROW ME AWAY WITH THEM!
MY STUPID SICK HEART IT JUST CAN’T TAKE ANYMORE,
LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL, LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL OVER ME…LET THAT HEART ON YOUR SLEEVE START TO BEAT.’
Track Name: Catch & Release
I CAN’T WRAP MY HEAD AROUND
WHY YOU GOTTA LOOK DOWN AT ME
YOU SAY KEEP THE PEACE AT LEAST
CURL UP AND DIE ON DEMAND
IT’S THE BEST 2019 CAN

HEART RACING
NO PATIENCE
NO ONE’S LISTENING
TO ANY REASON

ALL OF YOUR ROOTS ARE JUST CLINGING WITH EASE
COMING DOWN ON ME
AHH
LET ME SINK IN MY TEETH
LET ME SINK IN MY TEETH
LET ME JUST CATCH AND RELEASE
NO CRAWLING
RUN INTO ME

I JUST WANT TO BE ALONE

ALL ACTION
NO PATIENCE
NO ONE’S LISTENING
TO ANY REASON

CURL UP AND DIE ON DEMAND
IT’S YOUR ONLY CHANCE
BEST PLAN

HEART RACING
NO PATIENCE
NO ONE’S LISTENING
TO ANY REASON

CURL UP AND DIE ON DEMAND
IT’S YOUR ONLY CHANCE
BEST PLAN

GIVE IN TO ME
LET ME JUST CATCH AND RELEASE
LET ME JUST CATCH AND RELEASE
LET ME JUST SINK IN MY TEETH

CATCH AND RELEASE
SINK IN YOUR TEETH

DEMAND CHANGE AND DON’T SETTLE FOR ANYTHING ELSE
Track Name: Engine
PAID WITH THE UNION
DRY WALL IN YOUR HAIR
LIGHTS IN THE BACK ROOMS
THE SWELLING OF STAIRS
SMOKE TO THE CEILING
BRICKS ON THE STREET
GLASS ON THE SIDE WALK
A GROSS KIND OF NEED
SWEAT IN YOUR PALMS
HAIR IN YOUR FACE
FEET THAT KEEP RUNNING
FISTS THAT STAY MADE
WEEDS IN THE GARDEN
MASKS IN THE CHAINS
YOU’RE PROUD AND STUBBORN
YOU’RE DUMB AND ENRAGED

I GET CHOKED UP SOMETIMES ON THE RIDES HOME
I GET LONELY SOMETIMES ON THE RIDES HOME
I FEEL GUILTY SOMETIMES ON THE RIDES HOME
I FEEL SILLY SOMETIMES ON THE RIDES HOME
WHERE SHOULD I GO?
WHERE SHOULD WE GO?
WHERE SHOULD WE GO?


DONE WITH THE OFFICE
DONE WITH THE CHAIR
SICK OF TIME TABLES
PERFUME IN THE AIR
CAUGHT IN THE LEASH
DIED FOR THE DREAM
THAT CONSTANT TICKING
IGNORE ALL FEELING
TIGHT IN THE CHEST
JUST BLENDING IN
DIE FOR THE WEEK
LIVE FOR THE WEEKEND
COOLER OF BEER
TRAFFIC THAT SNEERS
WHAT ARE WE DOING
TELL ME MY PEERS


I GET CHOKED UP SOMETIMES ON THE RIDES HOME
I GET LONELY SOMETIMES ON THE RIDES HOME
I FEEL GUILTY SOMETIMES ON THE RIDES HOME
I FEEL SILLY SOMETIMES ON THE RIDES HOME

NOW THAT YOU’RE A PILE OF DUST IN A WALL
I VISIT ON LONG WEEKENDS AND WHEN I CAN
I STARE AT THE NAMES AND ALL THE FLOWERS AROUND
AND TELL MYSELF I’VE DONE WHAT I PLANNED
AND I GET CHOKED UP ON THE RIDES HOME
AND I GET LONELY ON THE RIDES HOME
AND I FEEL GUILTY ON THE RIDES HOME

ENGINE OF DESTRUCTION
RUSH HOUR GLARE
TIGHT AND CONGESTED
DIRT IN THE AIR
CONTENTIOUS OBJECTOR
STUCK IN A LINE
FOR PIECE OF MIND
WITH INTEREST TO PAY
I RAN AWAY
FROM ALL OF MY OPTIONS
LEFT YOU ALONE
TO DEAL WITH MY PROBLEMS
DIDN’T COME BACK
TILL IT WAS TOO LATE
NOW I’M STILL STUCK HERE
FINALLY CHANGED

I GET CHOKED UP SOMETIMES ON THE RIDES HOME
I GET LONELY SOMETIMES ON THE RIDES HOME
I FEEL GUILTY SOMETIMES ON THE RIDES HOME
I FEEL SILLY SOMETIMES ON THE RIDES HOME
Track Name: Stoic/Pointless
ALL THE KIDS THEY THINK THAT THEY’RE ROMANTICS
AND IT’S SWEET BUT IT’S SHORT SIGHTED AND TRAGIC
AS THE SIGHTS ARE NICE GETTING LOST ALONG THE WAY
BUT
ALL THAT TIME JUST SHARPENING KNIVES IS A WASTE
WHEN
THE DULL BLADE IT CAN CUT JUST AS DEEP
IT GOES FROM LUST TO LOVE TO WANT TO NEED
CODEPENDENCY CAN FEEL SO CHEAP
WOULDN’T YOU AGREE?

AH YA, BUT

WE’LL ALWAYS HAVE
THE RECORDS THAT WE DON’T KNOW HOW TO SPLIT UP
NOT SURE EXACTLY WHO BOUGHT WHAT
THIS AIN’T SUPPOSED TO COME OFF AS HOPELESS
OR OPTIMISTIC OR STOIC
JUST POINTLESS
WE’LL ALWAYS HAVE
THE NIGHTS THAT NEITHER OF US WANT TO TRUST
NOT SURE EXACTLY WHO’S DONE WHAT
NOT SURE EXACTLY WHO’S GOING TO GIVE UP ON US

WHEN WE WERE KIDS WE WERE SO ENCHANTED
AND IT WAS NICE BUT ELABORATE AND MANIC
PACKING UP ALL THE GAMES WE USED TO PLAY
I NEVER THOUGHT WE’D LOOK BACK AT THOSE YEARS AS A WASTE BUT
THE OLD TRICKS THEY’RE SO EASILY SEEN
REMEMBERING NOW DOESN’T EVEN FEEL LIKE THAT WAS EVEN ME
YOUNG LOVE AGES SO CHEAP
WOULDN’T YOU AGREE

WE’LL ALWAYS HAVE
THE RECORDS THAT WE DON’T KNOW HOW TO SPLIT UP
NOT SURE EXACTLY WHO BOUGHT WHAT
THIS AIN’T SUPPOSED TO COME OFF AS HOPELESS
OR OPTIMISTIC OR STOIC
JUST POINTLESS
AN OLIVE BRANCH
AND A LITTLE TIME PASSED
MAYBE WE’LL GET SOME OF THAT MAGIC BACK,
MINUS THE SUSPICIONS AND CONTRADICTIONS
AND JUST LET A LITTLE LOVE GROW AND RELAX
Track Name: Web
A DEGREE OF CALM
OVER THE SHOULDER
THE WHOLE THING WILL CRUMBLE
BEFORE THIS IS OVER
UNSTABLY GLAZED
AND BACKED IN A CORNER
LOVE YOURSELF FIRST
ONLY IN THAT ORDER

A LIGHT TOUCH OF YOUR PALM
GLASSY AND ICED AND STEADY
SLIGHTLY MORE WITHDRAWN
STATUESQUE AND HEAVY

THE INTEGRITY OF
A WEB OF LIES
STARTS TO FAIL
WHEN SPREAD OUT TO WIDE
A REFERENCE POINT TOO BOLD TO HIDE
WITH A CREATURE OF HABBIT
DESTRUCTION CAN SHINE

YOUR PERFECT TIMING GOT INSIDE ME
LIKE A GERM THAT I TOOK PRIDE IN
JUST HELP ME FIGURE
THIS OUT
WERE WE BETTER OFF THEN
OR ARE WE BETTER OFF NOW

WHY SO MANY QUESTIONS
JUST FLOW AND DON’T OVER THINK IT
LIFE IS WORTH ALL THE ATTENTION
YOU CAN POSSIBLY GIVE IT
LEND YOUR SELF THE DISTINCTION
WORK TO LIVE DON’T WORK TO DIE
HARNESS ALL THAT ENERGY
AND GIVE YOURSELF SOME TIME

THEY GOT THE BOY WITH THE ARAB STRAP PLAYING IN THE BACK
AND THE CAT LOOKING AT THE DOOR LIKE SHE’D RATHER BE ANYWHERE ELSE
AND SOMEWHERE IN THAT SOUP OF LACKLUSTRE INDEPENDENCE
I REALIZED I LOST GOOD DEAL OF MYSELF TO YOU

THE INTEGRITY OF A WEB OF LIES
STARTS TO FAIL WHEN IT’S SPREAD TOO WIDE
THERE’S A REFERENCE POINT
TOO BOLD TO HIDE
WITH A CREATURE OF HABBIT
DESTRUCTION CAN SHINE
Track Name: Across The Couch
SIT TIGHT WITH THAT GOOD INTENTION
ALL IS GOOD AND DON’T ASK HOW
LEND YOURSELF TO THAT REFLECTION
IF WE WERE GODS BACK
I WONDER WHAT WE ARE NOW
WE’VE BEEN GOING AT THOUSAND MILES AN HOUR
HEADED STRAIGHT TOWARDS THE WALL
YOU’VE JUST BEEN RISING HELL
AS FAR AS I CAN TELL
WITH
NOBODY LEFT TO CALL

MOUTH
THE WORDS FROM ACROSS THE COUCH
AND LET THE TV ROAR
YOU’RE BORED
YOU DON’T WANNA DO THIS ANYMORE

SETTLED IN TO THAT INFLECTION
ENDS ARE BEING MEET DON’T ASK HOW
A FEW NAMES THAT I SHOULDN’T MENTION
IF WE WERE BAD BACK THEN
I WONDER WHAT WE ARE NOW
THEY’VE BEEN PUSHING ALL OVER CAMPUS
NEVER DON’T ANSWER A CALL
THEY’VE GOT A MAGIC SPELL
AS FAR AS I CAN TELL
THEY’VE BUILT A KINGDOM OUT OF STALLS

YOU CAN BE AN ACTIVE DRAG
YOU CAN BE A PARTY RAG
YOU CAN THROW THE WEEK AWAY
WE DIDN’T COME HERE FOR THE GPA

UNTIL YOU BURN OUT ENJOY IT
YOU’RE GONNA BURN OUT ENJOY IT
YOU’RE GONNA BURN OUT EXPLODING
I’LL TRY AND CATCH THE SPARKS

MOUTH
THE WORDS FROM ACROSS THE COUCH
AND LET THE TV ROAR
YOU’RE BORED
YOU DON’T WANNA DO THIS ANYMORE

YOU FOUND YOURSELF SOME KEYS TO THE CITY
FOUND YOURSELF SOME KEYS TO THE DORMS
LONDON ALWAYS LOOKED SO PRETTY
BUT I DON’T MISS IT ANYMORE
Track Name: Big Scar
THEY WENT FROM THAT’S SO RAVEN STRAIGHT INTO PAVEMENT
THEY STARTED WITH THE BEST OF’S AND GOT SOME PERSONAL FAVOURITES
HUGGED UP TO THAT CRASS CREW
THEN SLID INTO THE REPLACEMENTS
THE SUBURBS AREN’T THE SAME GAME
I REMEMBER WHEN WE CASED THEM

STARING INTO THAT DARK ABYSS
SEEING HOPE BUT AVOIDING IT
MAYBE YOU HEARD ME OR MAYBE YOU DIDN’T
BUT EITHER WAY THIS IS DIMINISHED
AND EITHER WAY THIS IS GONNA BE FINISHED

NOW WE’RE GETTING OCD
WITH THEM DRAMA QUEENS
THEY WANT TO TALK ABOUT
YOU AND ME AND ME AND ME
SWOLLEN OUT IN THE SUMMERY
YA, IT’S NOT ALL THAT FUNNY
BUT THERE’S HOPE IN THE JOKE
WHEN ALL YOU DO IS DREAM

LEANING INTO THAT DARK ABYSS
SEEING HOPE BUT AVOIDING IT
MAYBE YOU HEARD ME OR MAYBE YOU DIDN’T
BUT EITHER WAY THIS IS DIMINISHED
EITHER WAY IT’S GONNA FINISH

NOW WERE TURNING OLD WOULDS INTO PRETTY SCARS
WHILE ALL THE KIDS AROUND HERE ARE KICK FLIPPING TO BIG STAR
NOW THE ALL THE KIDS AROUND HERE THEY WANT TO BORROW MY CAR
IT AIN’T EASY BEING ME BUT IT AIN’T EASY BEING YOUNG ANYMORE
IF YOU CAN BACK UP THE TRAILER YOU CAN BE IN THE BAND
IT’S A SKILL SET THAT EVERY DRUMMER SHOULD HAVE
ONLY LEANING SLIGHTLY ON YOUR BACK UP PLAN
WITH YOUR BLACK FLAG SHIRT UNDER YOUR DAY JOB DRAB


HANGING ONTO THAT DARK ABYSS
NEEDING HOPE BUT AVOIDING IT
NEEDING HOPE BUT DESTROYING IT
Track Name: Tan Line (Like Passing Through A Wall)
SPREAD OUT SOFTLY IN SOME FORM OF TIME
WHO YOU AND I WERE SUBSCRIBE
TO A PIECE OF UNIVERSE, TO AN UNANSWERED CALL
AND I KEEP SEARCHING,
LIKE PASSING THROUGH A WALL
LIKE PASSING THROUGH A WALL
LIKE PASSING THROUGH A WALL

OHH YA
YOU LOST ME IN THE BLAST BEAT
I’M HOT AND BASKING
IN ALL THAT TRANSACTING
SOAKING UP THE TENSION
LET THE ENERGY COLLECT
HE’S LIKE,
‘GIVE ME A LITTLE NOW MAN AND
YOU KNOW THAT I’LL BE BACK’
BUT
YA CAN’T TRUST A HIPPIE WITH A TAN LINE
YOU CAN’T EXPECT TO GET A WHOLE LOT
OUTTA THAT GUY
LIKE PASSING THROUGH A WALL
A PART OF THIS SEEMS CORRUPT
I MUST HAVE MISSED
A COUPLES PAGES
AS THIS WORLD COLLECTED DUST


SPREAD OUT SOFTLY SOMEWHERE IN YOUR MIND
WHERE PIECES OF YOU AND I WERE COLLIDE
WE KNEW IT WHEN WE STARTED
YOU’RE THE WIND AND I’M THE CHYME
SPREAD A LITTLE FARTHER OUT THIS TIME

I FOUND A PORTAL
IT’S ON THE CORNER
YOU GIVE A GUY A COUPLE BUCKS
AND THEN HE GOES AND SHOWS YA

SPREAD OUT SOFTLY AND SUBTLE LIKE THE PINES
LET THE DISTANCE BETWEEN YOU AND I COMBINE
YOU’RE THE SEED AND I’LL GROW WITH YOU IN TIME
AN ARRANGEMENT MADE DEEP IN LOVE AND SPITE

SWEATING LIKE AN ATHLETE
SHOULD HAVE HUNG ME OUT TO DRY
I’M NOT SURE IF WHAT I’M SEEING
IS REAL OR JUST THE HIGH

OHH YAA
YOU LOST ME IN THAT TRASH HEAP
BAKING AND LAUGHING
AT ALL OF THESE SURROUNDINGS
CHOKING ON THE TENSION
WITH THE POWER I GOT LEFT
HE’S LIKE
GIVE ME A LITTLE MORE MAN
CMON YOU KNOW JUST WHERE I’M AT
BUT
YOU CAN’T TRUST A DREAMER WITH A BASS LINE
YOU’RE NOT GOING TO GET A WHOLE LOTTA
CASH OUTTA THAT GUY
PASSING THROUGH THE WALLS
UNAFRAID TO INTERRUPT
A PASSIVE WORLD THAT JUST
WANTS TO COLLECT DUST

UH, WHAT?
Track Name: Signs
PICESE
IN THE FULL MOON
CHANGE IS IN THE AIR
SHE BELIEVES IN THAT SHIT
SO I TRY TO CARE
TRY TO KEEP AN OPEN MIND
INTO THE CREVASSES OF LIFE
AS ALL MY ANXIETIES EAT ME
UP ALIVE

I’M JUST TRYING TO FIND MY WAY
THROUGH LIFE’S LITTLE MAZE
I’M JUST TRYING TO GET MY SHIT
TOGETHER DAY BY DAY

AMETHYST AROUND HER NECK
TO KEEP THE BAD AT BAY
DOESN’T SOUND TOO SANE TO ME
I DON’T WANT HER TO CHANGE
TRY TO MAKE THE BEST I CAN
OUT OF ALL THIS WASTE
IF NOTHING EVER WORKS OUT
I’M THE ONE TO BLAME

THE HEART IS A STRANGER
AND I’M CONSTANTLY AMAZED
HOW THE WILL TO LOVE ANOTHER
GETS STRONGER DAY BY DAY

SWALLOWED WHOLE AND SPIT OUT
CRAWLING OUT A GRAVE
I DON’T MISS A DAMN THING
THAT HELD ME IN THAT PLACE

CHANGE IS IN THE AIR
NOW I TRY TO CARE
Track Name: Evidence Locker
I LEFT EVERYBODY AND WENT HOME TO REST
THERE WAS A SILENCE TO THE DEPARTURE
IT WASN’T QUITE SILENT
BUT THERE WAS SILENCE TO IT
THE WAY WHEN IT’S BEEN RAINING FOR A LONG TIME
THE NOISE OF
IT ALL JUST BENDS AND SITS
IN WHATEVER YOU’RE DOING
AND THEN YOU ONLY REALLY NOTICE
WHEN YOU GET UP
AND IT’S GONE
IT WAS ONE OF THOSE
I GUESS

WELL
I GOT UP
IN A SPATTERING OF LIFE
OF LIVING
OF EVIDENCE THAT WE EXISTED
THAT WAS LITTERED EVERYWHERE
THAT’S WHAT IT FELT LIKE
LITTER
IS THAT WHAT A SOUL FEELS LIKE
SOMETHING THROWN OUT A CAR WINDOW
IS THAT WHAT A SOUL FEELS LIKE
JUST EVIDENCE IN A LOCKER

THERE WERE A LOT OF LONG FUNNY DAYS WRAPPING UP IN THIS
IT WAS TIMEFRAME OF AN EXPLOSION
WE WE’RE ABOUT TO BREAK THAT WEAK FACADE
WE HAD A COOL
CYNICAL APPROACH TO TECHNOLOGY
YOU COULDN’T GET A HOLD OF US IF YOU TRIED
AND NOBODY WAS TRYING TO GET A HOLD OF US
AT LEAST MUCH BACK THEN

WE WERE A LONELY GANG
WE WERE A DESPERATE CLIQUE
WE WANTED YOU TO WANT TO BE YOU AND ME
WE DIDN’T TRUST ANYTHING
AND THAT’S WHAT THIS WHOLE THING STEMS FROM
TRUST
I DIDN’T THINK OF GOD BACK THEN AS ANYTHING OTHER THAN A WORD
BUT NOW AS WE’RE PACKING UP AND SPINNING OUR LOSE ENDS TOGETHER
I KNOW SO MANY WORDS THAT HAVE LOST OR GAINED MEANING
I SAY SORRY A WHOLE LOT BUT THE RIGHT PEOPLE NEVER HEAR ME

YOU’RE A STOWAWAY
YOU’RE A HALLOWED THOUGHT
A FAITH THAT COMES AND GOES
AS AWKWARDLY AS YOU WANT
THERE WAS GASOLINE ON MY HANDS
MIXING
WITH A BIT OF GLASS FROM THEIR WINDOW
THERE WAS A LITTLE RAINBOW IN MY BLOOD
IT STIRRED IN ME QUIET AND LYRICAL

SO I LEFT AND WENT HOME TO REST
I MANAGED TO GET MYSELF TO BED
BUT THERE WASN’T REALLY MUCH OF ME LEFT
WE WERE A LONELY GANG
WE WERE ON A DESPERATE STREAK
I WANTED YOU
TO WANT TO BE
YOU AND ME
I WOULD HAVE DONE ANYTHING AND YOU TOOK MY TRUST

BUT I GUESS WHAT THIS WHOLE THING STEMS FROM
IS LUST
I DIDN’T THINK OF MYSELF BACK THEN AS MUCH MORE THAN A NAME
BUT NOW THAT I’M THINKING OF OUR LOSE ENDS TOGETHER
I KNOW SO MANY NAMES THAT HAVE LOST OR GAINED MEANING
I SAY SORRY A WHOLE LOT BUT YOU NEVER SEEM TO HEAR ME
I SAY SORRY A WHOLE LOT BUT IT STILL DOESN’T MAKE IT EASY
I SAY SORRY A WHOLE LOT BUT YOU NEVER SEEM TO HEAR ME
I SAY SORRY A WHOLE LOT BUT IT STILL DOESN’T MAKE IT EASY
