Track Name: Sunrising
I hate the smell of hospitals let's change these dirty sheets
I'll drown myself in alcohol and choke my lungs with weed
I lost the will to live the day my mother died
my father ran away now I have nowhere to hide
and it's ripped my chest open for all the world to see
they say time will heal it soon but all it's done is open wounds

little sister
I'll sing you a lullaby
don't lose hope when all is hopeless
wipe your eyes to see the sunrise over the clouds

I hate the way they talk to me I've lost my fucking nerve
I swear I've been real good but you never get what you deserve
and all this talk of buying headstones is really messing with my head
I lay awake at night listening to the ghosts beside my bed
I wish that I could talk to you I wish you'd understand
I hold my life in pieces it is crumbling from my hands
and I read the notes you left to me from before I was born
and I clutch my tear stained pillowcase I'm broken I am worn

little sister
I'll sing you a lullaby
don't lose hope when all is hopeless
wipe your eyes to see the sunrise
Track Name: Come Along After Thought
Fading out of focus
running at the mouth and lately
I've been far away
fighting fire with oil
stumbling out of the house on Downer
with that bitter taste
same old familiar smell is bringing me back to where I started
I'm so lost

I am always overthinking everything
and I can never keep my mouth shut about anything
that's what my friends think about me

I realized the flaws that plague us
we're not the people that we thought we were
we're just humans
we are vessels for the worst intentions
liars and cheaters we are all
so let's invest in some conversation
maybe we can be ourselves again

I am always overthinking everything
and I can never keep my mouth shut about anything
that's what my friends think about me
Track Name: Bad Faith
long are the nights spent staring at a ring
a symbol of undying love
but it died with a whisper, a drink and a smile
swift to the bedroom clothes to the floor
our memories are left at the door
what has he done?

caught in a lie with tears in her eyes screaming out
why have you done this to me?
were their bodies ashamed?

I hope it was worth it
to feel a new touch
I can't stand the pictures
they line all the walls of our home your lover is on the phone
so run to her darling leave your chains on the floor
they rusted apart and set your heart free
you were trapped in these walls but the walls were just me
so run to your lover
run to the sea
run through the meadow
run without me
Track Name: Midwest Winter
when it snows outside
we'll wrap ourselves up tight
to fight this bitter chill
if we close our eyes
we'll miss our passing lives
a deathbed seems so real

I'd spend my life with you
but without the means for two
I fear I'll fail you love
see this midwest winter has got me terrified

oh these dark days
drive me crazy
but I'll be your summer if you be my son
and with no money
I have only dreams
spread under your feet so please tread lightly

I'd spend my life with you
but without the means for two
I fear I'll fail you love
see this midwest winter has got me terrified
Track Name: Sundowning
I used to think that I was going to heaven
Now I'm not so sure
I used to think that there's no cure for cancer
But these pharmacies are trying to keep us poor
This factory is waking me to make money for some old, rich, white man
I'll comply I'd work to die to feel your touch upon my blistered hands

Sleep here soundly
Don't bother to open up your eyes
I'm quietly wasting quietly waking the storm inside

I used to think that everyone was evil
but I think that evil is deep inside of me
I tried to save my sorry soul from drowning
But ended up being swallowed by the sea
I'll sleep all day to keep away the visions of the demons in my head
I've lost my sight cried through the night I know now that my sanity is dead

Sleep here soundly
Don't bother to open up your eyes
I'm quietly wasting quietly waking the storm inside

You've been gone for days
Won't you come back to me?
stuck in a haze
