Track Name: Stay
I think you love me like hot coals
I think you love me like I'm the spark
I told you I was a pit bull
and I'm telling you I am a pit bull

I hope you stay

have you ever seen cave darkness?
the kind that tricks your eyes into fireworks
where is your kerosene lamp?
I am waiting

I hope you stay

I'm not saying you don't love me
and please do, by all means
I'm saying maybe it's your heartbeat
that you're hearing and calling it mine

I don't think of holding when I think of arms,
I don't feel loved when I hear I love you

I hope you stay
Track Name: Agoraphobia
I could leave if I wanted to
I don't have to live like this, I can leave my room
I don't have to stay like this, I can see the light of day

all the doors open and close even when their hinges are backwards
I had a key in my pocket but I swallowed it for safe keeping

and these door frames are hurricane shelters
and I am crucified to this ark
there is no difference between blue skies and blues seas when you can't breathe

I could leave if I wanted to
Track Name: Without You
(I could breathe)
I'm feeling sick on this ship
This dramamine filled body
Flamboyantly masked to confuse you
Unseen right in front of you

Don't make me sing
When breath is shallow
I'll be your death
The straight and narrow

(I could breathe)

Without you, without you, I could breathe easy
Track Name: Wet Roads (Scout Niblett cover)
I walked behind you, so I could see you
Move the way you do, do
Move the way you do

Don’t you know just to play with what you’re given?
Don’t you know just to play with what you’re given?
Can’t take her for the only one to believe in

Wet road, paradise, wet roads today
Wet roads on the way to your house again

Don’t you know just to play with what you’re given?
Don’t you know just to play with what you’re given?
Can’t take her for the only one to believe in

You were already captured, you were already loved
I just wanted to stand with you in our space again

Don’t you know just to play with what you’re given?
Don’t you know just to play with what you’re given?
Can’t take her for the only one to believe in

It’s only for a little while

Fierce play gets you everywhere
Track Name: Owl Song
I woke up who-ing owl
I woke up biting my lip
I love the way I can't tell if I'm still dreaming
I love the way you smile at me like you're happy I'm here
Track Name: Miss U
as soon as I'm gone I miss you
but I need to be alone
I need to turn off my phone
I miss you but I can't

im sorry you cant get dressed
cause I borrowed all of your clothes
and im naked im a shower so hot
that it burns me red

if you numb sadness, you numb it all
I just want to be able to feel my fingers again
on your tongue

pull over the sheets, make me in

the moon waxes and wanes
like the moon, when im full, im full
like the moon sometimes I must go
and sometimes I must show up at your door

pull onto your street, 3am
