Track Name: Tourist
I'm filling
the space between my limbs for now
i'm pulling
the branches from my house

but i know i'm
still a drag
to be around

crawling
to my car somehow
escaping
the mess we left in this town

i know i'm
still a drag
to be around

growing older than everyone
one day
i'll kill what i've become
Track Name: Limbs
they pulled out his spine
and you cried yourself to sleep
i cut out my tongue
and i forgot my name

i left my bones down south
twice in a row now
pour salt around my grave
i only hope some day
i change

filling
the space between my limbs
for now
find something new to talk about

i'll cut out my tongue
and sing
there is nothing in this house
only cold rooms now
Track Name: Repose
we don't have a place to leave
and they've been stealing our sleep

but i don't mind
Track Name: Plank
you said
"go to hell"
and i really considered
a place warmer than when you held
clutching the past
ignorant of the path
we had gone and set for ourselves

as your branches consumed my home
this house is over grown

blink out the summer
fade to a colder scene
keep scratching my eyes
until i see nothing

i should feel better now
but i'm still as cold
and i'm still not proud

blink out the summer
fade to a cold scene
my body was a plank
and you walked all over me
Track Name: Blankets
i've been thinking
i'm better than before
but the snow fall
is coming through the holes
in my front door

i've been picking
patches of grass to mend
in the front of the garden
maybe build some walls to this house again

it's cold out here
and the winter has been so mean
and i don't
have the planks
to fix this house
or what's in me

i was ready
i thought
to fall back down
but even my ghosts don't
believe me now
after everything i spit out my mouth
if my teeth weren't breaking now
i would have some explaining to do somehow
Track Name: Flower
i'll live inside a shell
and i'll do just fine
you can build your friends
out of sticks
and out of twine

while we stay violent all the time

i put a flower in your hair
and you left me for
a watch maker
i couldn't give you
the answers to the questions on your mind
but he could tell you the time
i guess that was all you needed to get by

and as soon as i changed
i realized i didn't want to
well i finally changed
but it's not what i meant to do

as my veins unwind in my body all night
Track Name: Night Owl
we laid all our nails
inside small coffins
i don't want them

shift away from home for petty orders
just don't move forward

we laid all our boards in place
but couldn't stop our own decay

and i just wanted to slow down

you emptied your gut
i tried drowning mine
hope we stay down here
for a long time

we laid all our nails
inside small coffins
i don't want them
i can't stand this
shift away from home
for petty orders
don't move forward

i just wanted to slow down

we become night owls as we sleep
in the dark we see everything
wrenching our necks until they crack
forever cursed with looking back
Track Name: Cask
you emptied your gut

i tried drowning mine

and we stayed down here

for a long time
Track Name: Pull
becoming too self conscious
for now i'll drive alone
but i think i've found my better days
so i won't call you when i get home

growing older than everyone
one day
i'll kill what i've become

you were dragging on your cigarette
when everything was fine
and now your filter is un-singed
while i'm here
losing my goddamn mind

you said you were getting sick
of how i sound
sick of who i became
and what you found out
you said i'm a drag
and i won't leave this house
i guess we all pull away somehow

well maybe i'm getting sick
of how i sound
sick of who i became
when you stopped coming around
you were just a tourist
and i should know better now
i'm not feeling as cold
but i'm still not proud
i won't let myself decay
i'll pick up off the ground
i guess we all pull away somehow
Track Name: Something Borrowed, Something Blue
you were pulling on your cigarette
when you asked me the time
but i just turned my back to you
because i was losing my mind

we were hopping hotel rooms
down south where the weather is fine
you told me you could ease
the tension on my mind

as my veins
unwind
in my body all night

you'll pull your way
and i'll pull right back
we won't loosen our grip
until the tension snaps
someone always falls
and i know it was my fault
that i stumbled backward
i never wanted this to hurt
so i'll take the blame
and you'll do the same
there's no need to fight each other
i've got my own bruises to cover
but i know that we once cared
we just couldn't see this through
we weren't meant to build a home here
so let the branches consume
we met heading in opposite directions

we're just passing on through.
