Track Name: Firecracker
i saw all these bright eyed kids
burn up in time, violence
edging it's way into their hearts

but when you burn so fast
yr mind falls into the past
anytime any word might call it up
that could be pretty bad

it's not gonna change my mind
but i'll get to it in time
burning fires by the shore

and i don't remember anyone
just smiling faces in the sun
and firecrackers in the twilight
Track Name: Ursa
can't find my way around here in the light
so i'm navigating stars at night
like some ghost in the air around my head
you're haunting me

when i die i hope that i see you
among the photons and the molecules
sent from outer space to bombard earth
you seem like that kinda girl

but we don't (don't) wanna know

and though it might seem like i like your glow
i probably don't

dead leaves on the ground again
representatives for my only friend
ursa major in the sky at night
watches me in this fight

see you dancing in yr funeral clothes
why you live this way oh hell only knows
taking walls of pills and blacking out
is something you can't seem to live without

but we don't (don't) wanna know

and though it might seem like i like your glow
i probably don't
Track Name: Wasted
i wasted
everyday
tryina be alright
tryina be okay

i found you,
more than he can say
but still less than
what matters to me

but nobody cares at all

you wasted
everyday
cracking my old jokes and tryina be okay

i found you,
more than he can say
but still less than
what matters to me

but nobody cares at all
Track Name: May
you could say i
wake up tired
every morning
even weekends
he rips yr tee shirt
and rips my tee shirt
these are all remnants
do you remember?

feelin bad
gettin worse
touch yrself
make it hurt
feelin bad
gettin worse
touch yrself
make it hurt

smash my room up
broke a mirror
i'm so angry
i can't stop this
it's a repeat
just like last year
why can't i stop this?
it's exploitation

feelin bad
gettin worse
touch yrself
make it hurt
feelin bad
gettin worse
touch yrself
make it hurt
Track Name: Bee
i feel so good it hurts my body
i love when she stings me softly
feels so good when i can't breathe
my girl brings me to my knees

and when i watched you cry
in the car that one time
i reached my hands into the sun
and i got burnt and came undone

i can't stand when i am like this
hovering above the floor
i can't fight this
how long does it really take
to break a heart and get a break?

i saw her eyes
i heard her voice
she faced a flood
and made a choice
she stole a sign
she killed some time she said
i am the sun, i am the night

i feel so good it hurts my body
i love when she stings me softly
feels so good when i can't breathe
my girl brings me to my knees
Track Name: Vermont
i'll never beg
i'll never steal
i'll never cry
cuz i don't fucking feel

i'll cut my hair
i'll leave the top and shave the sides
so you won't recognize me
if you don't even hardly try

but i'm so tired of being wrong
so i'm going to vermont
to find out who i am
to find out what i really don't want

i've been careful
i've been moral
i've been tryin to be strong
but i'm so tired of being wrong

i've been quiet
i've been kind
i've been wasted i've been away
i'm so tired of being wrong

i'll be a ghost
who haunts around
screaming fuck you
at graduates walking in groups downtown
i'll kiss some girls
i'll climb a tree
i'll be a punk
but they'll catch me

and i don't know yr fucking song
so i'm going to vermont
to find out who i am
to find out what i really don't want

i've been careful
i've been moral
i've been tryin to be strong
but i'm so tired of being wrong

i've been quiet
i've been kind
i've been wasted i've been away
i'm so tired of being wrong

i'm so tired
Track Name: Katabasis
i was afraid that i couldn't dream
for about 8 months before we got clean
lonely aphotic memories of sleep
but when i wake up i don't feel anything

we're earthbound
in new york
a sunrise unbroken,
refracting through the air
though i don't feel
much of anything

but there's safety in god's hands

ions change places in space in waves bending,
crashing back onto the coast fractal endings
sometimes i hear it come out of the night,
don't know why i can't keep close friends swept out by time

we're colliding
with new york
the rays bent
and tried to
guide you back to your home
but did you forget your exile?

there's safety in god's hands

when you die,
i'll go to hell
make a deal with the devil
to send you back around
Track Name: Alt Kid 101
can i see
the real you?
been waitin
and watchin and i've
been wanderin
through this town
spent hours
in my own mind
like alt kid
101
it's denim
it's plaid and i'm
so tired
so tired
just dreamin
i miss it

(i know what yr after, wasting watching wandering yeah i know what yr after, i see it all in my mind, i know what yr after, 8:30-2:00 yeah i know what yr after, and i won't let you have what's mine)
Track Name: Kyasarin
little bird suffering
what is this song you sing?
found you contemplating
somebody clipped yr wings

wish i could teach you
humans can fly too
cuz you got me feelin
again

oh

you kill all the songs you wrote
but you're not some ingenue
what is this trick you pull?
maybe i haven't grown.

wish i could feel it
be in that world again
cuz you got me feelin
again

oh
Track Name: Missingno.
a 19 year old girl screaming “no future”
into her pillow as her roommate does their homework
across the room
Track Name: Dusk
running down my street,
it follows me.
omagatoki, from the trees,
it's watching me.

(i've seen the aurora borealis in yr eyes,
and when i define it, i'll try to explain it for you.)

and i'm so nervous, yeah i'm so tense
i can't keep going on like this

faltering through the half-light on my hands,
i can feel it tear my muscles from their bones.

(i've seen the aurora borealis in yr eyes,
and when it inundates you, make sure you say sorry
before goodbye)

like times new viking once said
there is no hope for those without time

congratulations
you're way cooler than all of us
and you're way smarter than all of us
and i've got nothing but love
for you in my heart
Track Name: Morning Star
shining like a bell your body quakes
i can't stand to be awake like this
let me fall asleep

did you think this could happen to you?
i don't want to think.

went to the library
picked out something you would like
from montauk to albany
i've been wasting all my time

i've been through the paces
of what is real and what is lie
lying naked on yr bed
i wish i could get high

i wish i could get high

i don't know but i been told
the morning star is getting old

how could i think
that this wouldn't happen to you
and all of my friends?
how could i think
that this disease wouldn't take you in the end?
cuz she's gone and she's never coming back
even when she comes back

now my head is filled up
with yr sweat and yr perfume
and the noises in my head
become the noises in the room
and i know that i told you to spend
all of yr money on drugs and to die young
but then again,
how could i outlive you?

and if you live in the dark
you will love in the dark
and if you love in the dark
you will lie in the dark

i said i don't know but i been told
the morning star is getting old

how could i think
that this wouldn't happen to you
and all of my friends?
how could i think
that this disease wouldn't take you in the end?
cuz i'm gone and i'm never coming back
even when i come back

even when i come back
Track Name: 3 Breaths
it hurts me so bad
seeing you with him
taking off yr shirt
in 3 breaths i'm nothin

now i'll box it up
and put it in yr car

it makes me wanna die
one among the leaves in the forest
in three breaths i'm nothin

now i'll box it up
and put it in yr car
Track Name: Hell or Bust pt. ii
i've grown up more since i wrote this song i'm sorry yall
