about

Songs about the anger that comes with failed relationships, exploration of the mind and self, lifelong angst, living with the side effects of prescribed medication for mental illness, and the understanding of your own mortality.

Give up and walk away

These words recite in my head on the journey home

I passed out in your yard next to the lamp post

I Made time to waste time every day with you

Growing calloused from all the shit that we’ve been through



Made time for you, I made time

Made time to let it all just fall away

Give up on you, I give up

Give up on everything I want to say



I would walk away

If I could focus

I would stand up straight

Against my judgement

Find a better place

To lay my head down

See another day

I win



I wound up all alone

You called me all night

I took the long way home

And drove the car off the road



Pack up and walk away

There’s nothing left to say

I found a better way

She said, she said

Learn from my past mistakes

Think back to yesterday

Pack up and walk away

She said, she said



Fall asleep

I’ll make sure you’re sleepless

There’s no peace until you’re in pieces



I would walk away

If I could focus

I would stand up straight

Against my judgement

Find a better place

To lay my head down

See another day

I win

I can’t win

I fit my dreams in this pipe and I smoked them

My goals were all stems and a taste that I hated



Flat on my back just trying to keep it all together

But the whites in our eyes say that we’ll float here forever



There’s no place that I would rather be than right here you and I together

We’ll burn out, no after glow

We’re gone now

It’s better than to fade out slow

We messed it up, but that’s alright

We’ll burn the spoon talking through the dead of night

You’re half a world, a ways away

Say what you were going to say



Kill my brain cells with you

All night and we don’t have to talk about it

Black eyes, baby blue’s what I see

There’s time to live our rock and roll fantasy



Got this head full of confidence, but I’ve never felt stranger

What a waste of a useful limb, it happens sooner than later



What’s wrong, you said that you don’t know

Strung out, don’t want to talk about it

What’s wrong, you said that you don’t know

Flatline, nothing to talk about



Where did the sun go



I fit my dreams in this pipe and I smoked them

My goals were all stems and a taste that I hated



Flat on my back just trying to keep it all together

But the whites in our eyes insist we won’t get better
Track Name: Downward Dog
I wish I was the sun in your eyes

The blind spot in your mirrors that creeps behind you late at night

Come down from the high that you’re on

And wake up to the burning box I left on your front lawn

You don’t know what I’m capable of



Take time, you know you’re fucking up

Crossed lines you know we’ve all had enough



Don’t try and make amends and glue this back together



Most people bend or they break

You’re not that ordinary

I’ll stick this knife in your face

You’re lightning in a bottle

This scene is moving to slow

Your lack in commentary

I’ll make sure that you know

That you’ll be dead and buried



Inhale, the smoke will make you strong

I’ll weave your eulogy into this song

I hate what you’ve become the most

Crushed pills be sure that you double the dose

Take time, you know you’re fucking up

Crossed lines you know we’ve all had enough

Make note, beware the sleeping eye

Catch up, you know you’re running out of time



I’d love to see how you fall

disemboweled with your head run through the wall

I’d love to see how you fall

Plummeting from your 10 foot pedestal

I’d love to see how you shake

As every bone in your body starts to break
Track Name: Modern Planet
It’s hard to talk about the voice you hear in your head

Sometimes it won’t go away

It’s hard to think about all the people that left

When there’s things left to say

Built up, and here’s the break down again

There isn’t freedom from fear

Stayed up all night pacing the hall

Just wishing you’d disappear



There isn’t reason this time

Try not to think about it at all

Nothing ever feels right



Apathetic while the worlds falling down

Just medicate it, you’ll be ok

It’s copacetic to find bliss in this state

Try and forget that you’re not the same



Coming out of a fog just to realize you’ve done this all wrong

A visit from a friend, but you’re strapped to your brain and you can’t let him in

Your bones are like the sun and the sky

They’re just shelter to hind behind

It’s existential to make sense of it all

To make a difference when you’re so small



There’s not a cure for me….



Altered state

Medicate

Waste away

Living on this modern planet
Track Name: Waxahachie
I smashed a bug with my hand once before

I smeared it’s blood and it’s guts on the floor

It made me feel weird and I started to cry

And in this moment I knew what it meant to die



And I don’t ever want to die alone

But then again I don’t wanna die by…

And I don’t ever want to die alone

But then again I don’t want to die by your side



Waste time, coexisting in black and white



I just assume that we all die alone

I guess it turns out we’re just flesh and bone

But then again I don’t want to die by

I guess in time we’ll find our own way home

But then again I, but then again I
