"It's not your right to kill my pain What you decided you turned to defamation claims You are gone Nowhere a garden grows inside Now I am guarded Don't make this mine, it's yours Under the knife secure the chain Discard our lives It will defeat you someday You are gone Nowhere a garden grows inside Now I am guarded Don't make this mine, it's yours (x2)"

Phone 01:48
​Do you love me more than your phone? I’m across the table but I’m all alone Will you let me know when I should stay at home Rolling loaves all on my lonesome Sighing, vying for your time in the misconception that a bit is mine And I wish I didn’t have to stand in line In an endless queue of strangers News reporters at the Washington Post Didn’t hone their words to write eternal scrolls Though I know you love the one in front of your nose Could you lift your eyes to see her?

Wait 02:02
Hours from the morning Miles from asleep Sway in the kitchen To lights onTV I’ll wait a little while I’ll wait a little while I’ll wait a little while With you Blanket of daylight Rests on the sheets Stretching the minutes Watching you dream I’ll wait a little while I’ll wait a little while I’ll wait a little while For you

"Summer nights In the dead of winter Keeping all your shadows In the backseat of your car Morning light Blushes like a candle I forget the reasons Why I held my head to the side If you could If you would Follow me I learn All about your breathing All about your movement And it’s just the same as mine Feeling Better, feeling quiet I’m content with holding What I hold right now in my hands I’m afraid of losing What I hold right now in my hands"

"I work with people! Yes, it's true. Yes, I do. I work for the police. I work there with my niece. She sits at the front desk. I try to keep the peace. I am a cook for the Navy. Potatoes and gravy. Hi there. You can talk to me. I have a degree in therapy. I work with people! I will work with you, If you will work with me, I will work with you."

"I count another one Count another one for some other son Oh no another comes Never wait, only go I can deliver keep us all together if only for the weather Hold on to all your things and buy more rings give me money Can’t help another one sell another gun buy another tonne Jeff’s store is making more and more and more and more it’s always king so buy more things And I tell myself I’m never coming back until its gone And you should just buy another one and another one and another one and another one and another one and another one You buy some things give me life give me money Please buy more things buy me life give me money You buy some things give me life give me money Please buy more things buy me life buy me money You buy some things give me life give me money Please buy more things buy me life give me money"

Alms 02:35
"Where your treasure is, your heart is also Is it the same when we are together? Spending hours on your mother’s couch Where is your love born? A home less forgiving to some stone-cold, quiver in the luke warm bath Do I make you mourn For some care you needed when you were young? Like a marble calf, arms open to none Rich in spirit, but still giving up With your back against the stone Force me to care about the only one "

I Feel Dumb 01:18
"Driving car across states And I feel stressed about the plan I am making Natalie sad Because I’m not being a patient man The love I have should mean more to me Than routes in Google Sheets Feels dumb to say that, but I feel pretty dumb I feel dumb"

That horror fantasy which comes on flights and I tell Emily I do not fear——has not happened My skin, that barometric, helps me understand The way I die in bits and among friends It weighs off me, on me—but has not happened After all I am perishable And cannot die and rise again in three there is a far off season and in it I will die The Lord will say upon it he’d been dying the whole time It weighs off me, on me—but has not happened

Doo Wop, Doo Wop, Doo Wop, Doo Wop, Doo Wop, Doo Wop...I was saying - I will let you down. I love so hard, please don't try your pretty little things. I'll take you out back to space where we can understand that breath was just shallow taking. Try to keep your hands off, let's go now. Stop that heart it's loud and convoluted. Taking with me all of your old stories, what's the point if I'm all here alone. Sorry brother, wish you had another. But I sure do love you to the bone. (Repeats). (Spoken words over): Black dress, foreground, silver heart's on.

"I can't resist you, lady. You caught me with those eyes. But now I'm getting shaky Cause you're temptation in disguise. Did I fall in love with you Or just those high heeled shoes? Did I see you in a dream, Or maybe it's just those jeans? You've been running round in my head Theres just something I cant explain How someone with such pleasure Can also bring the pain Did I fall in love with you Or just those high heeled shoes? Did I see you in a dream, Or maybe it's just those jeans? On the other hand, I know you like I'm in the band. So I guess it evens out, Might as well sell it out."

"Pick up the slack Show you how mad I can be Living alone No one but decade old TV shows I have no one to hold me close And you have no one to tell you what to do I left you a note The kind where all of the i’s each have hearts To tell you I dream of you only when we are apart Oh, how I tried to say Before you left, I’ll fix it But all that came out that day Was no just please forget it I have no one to hold me close And you have no one to tell you what to do Oh, how I tried to say Before you left, I’ll fix it But all that came out that day Was no just please forget it I have no one to hold me close And you have no one to tell you what to do "

"We used to talk on the phone We used to tell each other jokes We used to care what we said We used to kiss before bed We used to lie on the beach We used to share each other's dreams But now we don't anymore And I don't know what I'm waiting for Cause you don't know me…now And I don’t no I don't…want to change a thing About us We only care about money We only care about drugs We only care about sex and bodies We don't care about our love I only care about money I only care about drugs I only care about sex and bodies Don't give a shit about us x2 We used to care what ate We used to think all this was fate We used to make each other weak But now we make each other fall asleep I used to laugh when we fought You used to never get caught Now I don't care anymore Never will you be the one I'm waiting for
