Track Name: Mementos
I’ve packed a box of memories, picture post cards, and love letters
sent from wounds I severed long ago. Still, I keep them neatly tucked
below my bed as I dream of past and future events. Anything but
present tense. I’ve made more plans than memories, left a trail of
casualties.
I worry I’ll waste my whole life planning to die. It’s clear that I’ve
wasted this time preoccupied.
Now this box of memories serve as reminders. Remains from my repeated
offenses. Stolen affection from the unsuspecting. I’ve played the
victim and assumed the worst, manipulate and except the undeserved.
I’ve made more plans than memories and left a trail of casualties.
I worry I’ll waste my whole life planning to die. It’s clear that I’ve
wasted this time preoccupied.
Track Name: Certainty
It took me years to see through this tangled web of lies you’ve
weaved. What’s now inanely clear: how foolishly they heed ignorance.
And they all believe you.
I’ve found salvation in my own affections,without assistance from a
book’s directions. But still, that’s not enough for you
Hallow be thy head and full thy heart of greed, fraud, and contempt
for anything of reason
That’s not to say I’m never envious of belief in something that brings
hope and comfort. It’s just that’s not enough for me
Fear and need to belong, the search for purpose leaves us blind.
I will live my life according to my heart. I will live my life
I’ve found salvation in my own affections without assistance from a
book’s directions. But still, that’s not enough for you.
Track Name: Grand Ledge
I remember when time was just sequentially aligned memories, or spent
dreaming about these days. I’d be older, and you’d be proud of me. Are
you proud of me?
I’m not just looking for approval. I want to make you happy.
I remember when I realized that time is not on my side, but you will
always be by my side. We’re both older but you’re still the world to
me. I’m not just looking for approval. I want to make you happy.
Track Name: Red And Orange
I heard your voice tonight.
I tried not to pry even though I, even
though I, need to know I, even though I, need to know I just cant ask you tonight.
Even though I'm far from alone, my mind is tortured by envy. I want to be one of those leading ladies with romantic adventures and fantasy endings in all my favorite books.
So you're my Mr. Darcy. Can we please skip to the ending? As long as my hand remains empty, my head is heavy, but I can see clearly.
And just like autumns the finest of seasons. So easily I'm intoxicated by red and orange leaves, just before they fall and fade to brown.
Track Name: Always and Never
I speak in tired cliches, absolutes, and exaggerate, but please don't
mistake this honesty
I've spent just weeks by your side, and longer at hundreds of miles. I
know that you're leaving, believe me. You'll never be far from my
mind.
And we might fall to pieces when you're gone. I know that's a possibility.
I've spent just weeks by your side, and longer at hundreds of miles. I
know that you're leaving, believe me. You'll never be far from my
mind.
Track Name: Spring Thaw
Keeping composed, I’ll keep my mouth closed. But you’re standing so
close. You’re standing so close. I’m in love with a memory I’m in love
with an enemy.
The spring thaw stole more than snow, and left leaves weathered as we
are. fall ends too soon. Good things always do.
You brought out my best, but you bring up the worst of me. How can I
sleep on the pillow you made me without you next to me? How can you
watch me leave so easily?
But I can’t keep composed. I can’t keep my mouth closed. I’m in love
with you, always. Please come over. Say it’s not over. I can’t get
over. Just think it over. Please come over. Say it’s not over. I can’t
get over. Just think it over.
