Track Name: Too American
There is no answer to questions not asked
I am shaking and counting breaths
Stay unaware and completely scared
I will stay and wait
Track Name: Concrete
Stuck in my head
My brain overflows
Spilling in to real life
I am the nothing
Before the gun is fired
Before the bridge collapses
Before the window smashes
I am in a bad place
Sunken down
Like concrete
But I'm not as brave as concrete
A tiny chip in a front tooth
I want the water to flow over me
I want the world to burn me
I want the air to stop me
From breathing
Stop me from breathing
Like concrete
Like concrete
Track Name: Buffalo, NY
Why do I waste my time with these dark nights?
Why do you waste your time always holding up my spine?
I remember the brake lights
Shining through my eyelids
I remember the brake lights
Shining through my eyelids
Why do I waste my time with these dark nights?
Why do you waste your time always holding up my spine?
Your voice
Talking through the window
But now
This is a memory
The river is deeper
The water is warmer
The water here is unsafe
Track Name: Face of Another
Tell me everything
Tell me everything
But you know
I won't remember
No recollection of
A couple days ago
Everything is broken
And moving too damn slow
Mediocre mumblings
On a Tuesday night
Half-witted ideas
And you've found
That little thread
That leads to
My head
So I'll shut up
Tell me a story with your eyes
Tongue tied
Wasted in my mind
Track Name: Sublimation
It's been light
For a couple hours
And I've been ready in my head
But my feet are as good as dead
I walk slowly
And I trip over every curb
And it's time to give up
I am standing and I turn to steam
I reach to the tops of trees
How do you
How do you feel
When you wake up
Is it the same thing everyday
Do you feel as i do
Like a bird on a wire
Do you feel as I do
You know that I paid my dues
My dues become you
You know its easy to become a broken record
I am uninspired as the rain
So i just stand here
And I turn to steam
Reaching to the tops of trees
Track Name: Unlucky Mammals
Time builds itself
Painlessly around them
She welcomes him
Without surprise
She misses everyone she knows
She will not be
Without memories
Your hair becomes longer
And I become a stranger
To everyone I know
I wash my hair for you
I will sleep anywhere for you
My patience grows an inch or two
The stars don't recognize you
There's a spot on that hill that is always yours
Track Name: Nervous Hands
I count myself to sleep
Who can break you?
Out of body
I don't feel myself
Is this me?
Black and white
Does not feel right
I and me are not the same
Nerves of my father
Hands of my mother
