Track Name: Transparency
tell me everything you’re feeling as of late
the things you’ve done with the friends you fake.
as if anyone asked in the first place.
where’s the sustenance in being ostentatious?
your life is governed by news feeds and notifications

and what better way to harbor pity
than telling everyone who passed away
and how much they meant to me
like it’s a competition
you should learn to keep to yourself

and all i want is for everyone to be aware of
their own transparency
instead of practicing modesty
you plaster your life on cell phone screens for all to see
i guess you’ll never get it
nothing’s sacred

fed up with this generation of too much information
there isn’t anything social about it
because of the way you regurgitate
your bullshit into cyberspace
spreading ignorance like common plague
i can’t stand it
it’s pathetic

and all i want is for everyone to be aware of
their own transparency
instead of practicing modesty
you plaster your life on cell phone screens for all to see
i guess you’ll never get it
nothing’s sacred

nothing's sacred.
Track Name: Oak Street
should i let the words flow
from my mouth right down your street
while you’re still home,
i hope you’ll hear me
cause if i feel this low again i’ll scrape the deep end
but maybe then i’ll stop pretending
yeah, maybe then i’ll stop pretending

that things just felt so cancerous for a while
i’m in the in-between
like new buffalo & oak street
I hope the thought of me keeps you away from the beach
cause don’t care if you can’t sleep
no, i don’t care if you can’t sleep

don’t think i care if you can’t sleep

stay away from the lake
cause if you see me i’ll be skipping memories i swore i’d keep with me
in constant hopes that they’ll erode just like the glass we’d take home
left to rot in a window well
they're left to rot in your window well

some things just felt so cancerous for a while
I’m in the in-between
like new buffalo & oak street
I hope the thought of me keeps you away from the beach
cause i don’t care if you can’t sleep
no, i don’t care if you can’t sleep

when i close my eyes
i feel your summer skin
it pulls me apart and rips me open
when i close my eyes
i feel the warmth of the sun
it takes me back where i was where my youth was stolen
Track Name: Alexander Pl.
i said i wouldn’t think of anything
but honestly, i have a mouth full of words busting through teeth
so let me explain how your best friends make you weak
you think that i’ll waste away on these cold winter days but you’re wrong
you’re so wrong
can’t sleep anywhere anymore but this hardwood floor

but i know where you are
you’re buried under alexander
left to rust where you lay
in a pattern that you can’t break
keep those eyes to the floor
cause we know you can’t stand my face

you said you couldn’t think of anything
but we both know you don’t always say what you mean
and tell me again how the past makes this repeat
cause you’re wrong
you’re so wrong

but i know where you are
you’re buried under alexander
left to rust where you lay
in a pattern that you can’t break
keep those eyes to the floor
cause we know you can’t stand my face.

you wanna shake this off so bad, but you can’t
Track Name: But Why Would You Care?
these hands are broken and calloused, but nobody seems to notice.
and you yelled it into permanence.
have you ever come to hate the very thing that you helped to create?
cause that’s how i feel everyday.

i am expendable, but i guess that’s just the way things go.
i’m a ghost in foreign postal codes losing faith in what brings you hope.

on the outside looking in
or on the inside sitting in the corner. it’s all the same to me.
i got my hopes up. i thought i was out of the shadows.
but I’m buried six feet underneath what i worked four years to achieve.

while they were sleeping.
while you were sleeping.

i am expendable, but i guess that’s just the way things go.
i’m a ghost in foreign postal codes losing faith in what brings you hope.

home alone where all of my doubts are born.
home alone where all of my fears are formed.

i’m sick and tired of hating who i’ve become
it’s getting worse every day i spend home alone
writing myself to death stands in place of sleep.
i am an unlocked door and you’re a fucking thief.

you could hear me out, but why would you care?
no, why would you care at all?
Track Name: In My Room
i sat you down in my room in my head to confess
everything i had written down on paper.

i’m afraid if I don't show my scars i'll lose my place.
it’s something i can't change.
all cause you fucked with my head
i’d rather stay in my bed
do what i said and sulk in silence.
sit alone to escape the consequence.

cause I’m dead alone in my room in my head.
left to burn in the absence.
you’re still the only one that wanted me to give up and move on.
all because you couldn’t bear the heat of the fire i’d been starting.

i’m not hung up on what i couldn't fix, but your path is due to ignorance.
you couldn’t even take a call or let me say this to your face,
so i hope you hear this and you bear your own weight.
i’ll be waiting out back by the grave you dug
marked: here lies an old friend - gave up so much.

cause I’m dead alone in my room in my head.
left to burn in the absence.
you’re still the only one that wanted me to give up and move on.
all because you couldn’t bear the heat of the fire i’d been starting.
the fire i’ve been.
Track Name: Bedford Falls
the cracks in the street outside this house
are not the only thing that misery surrounds
i know you hate yourself
it’s the only common ground that we can depend on
and it kills me to see your face because you never deserved this
and while I’m dying at this desk, you’re dying in your head
the life you always dreamt; I’m living it instead

all the things i thought i earned were never mine all along
you emptied every pocket to bail me out of bedford falls
and i owe you everything. my life included.
for sacrificing happiness while i stay secluded

i sailed away from you
on a vessel that i made from all the things you gave to me
it’s keeping me afloat, but i still worry
because I’m treading in this sea of doubt in my self consciousness
and all you want is for me to be happy.

all the things i thought i earned were never mine all along
you emptied every pocket to bail me out of bedford falls
and i owe you everything. my life included.
for sacrificing happiness while i stay secluded.

fucked and complacent
condemned to my basement
get lost in these tracks while you’re lost on that bridge where you stand.

there’s nothing but guilt left inside.
you go home and sit alone every night.
it never seemed fair to me.
i’d be nothing without you.

i’d break through the ice and i’d drown in my self-centered abyss.
and i’d never have a home without cutting down your branches.
