Track Name: Mile
I could have been more prepared
Sometimes I second guess whether you regret the night you left
Searching for the weight I carried
I guess it won’t affect me anymore.
Years past the start
(Just forget, relax, and restart)
Spent time apart
(Just forget, relax, and restart)

I’m running out of ways to say this;
You’ve used all of your chances.
It’s not so bad, I just wish you hadn’t made me who I am.
Forget, relax, restart.
I’ve been scared that I’ve defined myself as one who set with the sun;
I’m getting older, no longer feeling young.
It’s hard to say how I’ve felt when you’ve been gone for so long.
It’s getting cold, the feeling is getting numb.
Track Name: Maps and Boxes
Let it out, see your breath
Stay outside
I told you everything.

Quietly quick to judge the light that you came from
Quietly wait for nights, and days I hold my tongue
Pick myself up; plans without a reason.

The sun will drown out the sky.
I was never good at saying goodbye.
Track Name: Wayfinder
I wasn’t lying when I said I was tired
Of running away from everything that I desired
And I am overwhelmed
I need a break from everything we thought we felt

These colors won’t run if I’m not awake to see
Tried pulling back at the hands but they do not deceive
We’re moving in cycles, but you’ve seen the start without me
I can’t sit here idling

Search and chase away the words
That did not make a difference, first
I cannot be heard
And I am overwhelmed
I’ll end up breaking just to feel like I have felt

I want to line the pieces up;
I want to line up yours and mine.

These colors won’t run if I’m not awake to see
Tried pulling back at the hands but they do not deceive
We’re moving in cycles, but you’ve seen the start without me
I can’t sit here idling
Track Name: Never Knows Best
I can’t ground myself; stuck in empty space.
I’m not sure if this makes sense anymore.

I create, retrace, reject
I just need you to understand
Is this the right way to say anything,
When I don’t think it’s worth it to stay?

Am I repeating myself?
I’m not sure if this makes sense anymore.
Am I repeating myself?
I’m only good at closing open doors.
Track Name: Kicker
Took the train alone to Boston for the first time in a long time
I wish I could say there was something that I learned, something that I took home.
But you don’t always gain from what you lose, and you don’t always get what you choose.
I always throw every word I say away.

Nothing has a grasp on the only constant
The only kicker to my own conscience.
Burn it all away so I can see the light of day
Paint reflections, I’m bruising my inaction
But I am just a ghost of nothing now

(I’m thinking that we’ve become something that we will miss)

Nothing has a grasp on the only constant
The only kicker to my own conscience.
Burn it all away so I can see the light of day
Paint reflections, I’m bruising my inaction
But I am just a ghost of nothing now

Took the train alone to Boston for the first time in a long time.
You started a fire in my mind.
Track Name: Recovery
I've found a way to recovery
Track Name: Foxhoof
Sever the side I never see
Never what I want to be
Quiet and all alone
I spend my nights drunk at home

Regain composure
The disapproval on your face
Regain your posture
Hope it all comes back some day.

The disapproval on your face weighs so heavy on me.
I can’t wait.
Track Name: Staircase
Now things are changing again, and I know I’ll always feel old. I admit I’m struggling. Everyone is tired now, spending time with ghosts of leftover lies, and I’m struggling. It feels like I’m frozen, and this got the best years of my life, taking pictures from all the wrong sides. I’m struggling.
Track Name: Advice
I remember time alone outside spent waiting
All this time and I had realized what I was chasing
I just can’t tell what to think.

I guess I’ve been making mistakes alone
I’m sure I won’t see you around anymore.
I just don’t know who to be.

Counting down to the dreams where I won’t see you anymore.
Counting down to the dreams where I won’t see you.
I can’t remember the last time I took my advice,
But maybe that’s just how I learned how to fight.

It still bothers me to hear my words fall off your tongue, or see the bits of me I left with you when I was done, but I have only myself to blame for this.

It still bothers me to hear my words fall off your tongue, or see the bits of me I left with you when I was done. I’ve only ever wrecked the homes I stay in, never building, only breaking.

Spent a year just asking why you never understood
How I believed I know exactly who you want and what you need
Only now did it occur to me what it really was
It was never me
Track Name: Balboa
I don’t know if I believe what you wrote
Half-hearted farewells and failed attempts to cope
I don’t know if I’ve been sober, I’ve spent time alone
Drunk enough to say that this is when I’ve felt a ghost

I never meant to cut your throat
I only meant to cut the rope

Tried to get what I thought I desired
Spending years apart until we both got tired
Of waiting, of hating, but you were not the right mistake to make
And I am just a life to take.

I’ve been running faster lately from things I can’t escape
I can’t stop myself from wishing I threw my promises away
A few weak words with perfect chemistry that never seemed to break
Only bond your expectations of me and all my past mistakes

Just the wrong way to try
I did my best to realize
And maybe I’ve been blind
But at least you know I tried looking up at the light

I never meant to cut your throat
I only meant to cut the rope

I’ve been running faster lately from things I can’t escape
I can’t stop myself from wishing I threw my promises away
A few weak words with perfect chemistry that never seemed to break
Only bond your expectations of me and all my past mistakes

All my past mistakes
Everything you hate
All my past mistakes
Everything we faked.
