Track Name: Two Story Deck
I wanna live under the water
I wanna stay where I can swim
I know it’s cold the jump is frightening
I don’t care the sunlight’s inviting me in
In the driveway after it all
I rolled down my windows and went on
Drove back up to the lake house
And laid out on the lawn
Slip some shoes on when you wake up
‘Cause the gravel roads hurt your feet
That’s all that matters to me
Staying up late in the summer heat
I wanna live under the water
I wanna stay where I can swim
I know it’s cold the jump is frightening
I don’t care the sunlight’s inviting me in
And I wanna have a party with all my friends
Where it never gets out of control
And I wanna have a party at the lake house
‘Cause the cops they never patrol
And I’m gonna have a party with all my friends
Where it never gets out of control
And I’m gonna have a party at the lake house
‘Cause the cops they never patrol
No
Track Name: Vices
You hate my compromises
I can’t stand your dumb surprises
When you try to reach out to me
I’m getting sick and tired
Of the constant contrived reminders
That we’re not where we used to be
So
That’s all I can open with
So
That’s all I can get out
And that’s the only conclusion that I can come to
With you
Let’s get some different vices
Flee from youthful weight of prices
Find some new company to keep
So
That’s all I can open with
So
That’s all I can get out
And that’s the only conclusion that I can come to
With you
Track Name: Where Do You Go?
You steadied your eyes
On horizon lines
And we stayed inside
On the Fourth of July
And all of our plans
We’ll just abandon them
Get lost in the dark
Bite your tongue on remarks
So where do you go?
When you’re sleeping next to me
Where do you go?
You’re sleeping silently
Your garden it grows
Are you a part of me?
There's nothing to show
And so you’re apart from me
Loose threads on a sleeve
They pulled you apart
You live with regrets
And false story arcs
So where do you go?
When you’re sleeping next to me
Where do you go?
You’re sleeping silently
Your garden it grows
Are you a part of me?
There's nothing to show
And so you’re apart from me
I fear that they’ll come for me
And throw me in entropy
I’ll give in reluctantly
Content with mundanity
I’m strung out on company
I wonder where you will be
I fear that you comfort me
I fear that you comfort me
I fear that you comfort me
I fear that you comfort me
Track Name: Light Pollution
The bright glow of the orange city dark
Cast brief shadows on the street where you parked
I know you’re tired but still restless where you lay
Warm from the sun it was just too much today
The lights come on
With kerosene
It burns my lungs
When you look that way to me
Tear me down
But please don’t call my name
I can’t resist it
When you need someone to blame
You haven’t been seventeen in all these years
Latent reaction to a new familiar fear
Surrounded by your fringe friends’ compromise
Dull to the tracing of recycled alibis
The lights come on
With kerosene
It burns my lungs
When you look that way to me
Tear me down
But please don’t call my name
I can’t resist it
When you need someone to blame
Track Name: Blemishes
Wasted time no one pushed you away
Rearranging white lies everyday
A borrowed line for something better to say
Bleach your shirts pretend you’re doing okay
Are you just a fan of the memories?
I miss when my thoughts would fit into categories
I didn’t think I’d have much more to say
A new paint will cover all your walls
But it can’t fix the blemishes that will cause your house to fall
Don’t be so surprised when your fringe friends won’t impose
When you’re at a party staring at your phone
Talking to me
Stony eyed standing outside your house
Drugged on the syllables that flow from your mouth
Granted, yeah, I’ve done my share of pain
I hope you know I had nothing to gain
Are you just a fan of the memories?
I miss when my thoughts would fit into categories
I didn’t think I’d have much more to say
A new paint will cover all your walls
But it can’t fix the blemishes that will cause your house to fall
Don’t be so surprised when your fringe friends won’t impose
When you’re at a party staring at your phone
Talking to me
Track Name: Smile Lines
So I’ve lived under the water
And felt the loose threads on your sleeve
I love your hair and the things that haunt you
I’m just happy to hear you sing
