Track Name: going somewhere
a compass points 4 ways
just not all at once
but that's not my brain
when it pulls itself apart

paths were cleared for me
but these shoes don't fit right
keep staring straight ahead
looking for some hindsight

it's cold out here
it's been almost a year
since i lost damn near all my fear

still haven't found
what it is i'm looking for
something to call my own
something to put my name on

a compass points 4 ways
just not all at once
but that's not my brain
Track Name: open work
orphaned texts from widowers
egos hurt more than words
boxes abstract swell fuller
i have nothing to say about her

it's a point of view / it's a pointed view
it's a point of view / disappointed who
it's a point of view / disappointed you

hesitations unmet
by expectations unset
see the difference between
my failings and his
Track Name: subsweet
the baggage you left with me
hangs heavy on my heart
and the only way my head can lift it up
is if we're apart
but i'll still follow you
clandestinely
staying tethered through
tiny passages
subsweet

you always said to paint you as a hero
and i tried my best
i think that's my one regret
so when the void comes calling me
i won't text back
because i finally see
that's the only way
not to feel the pain
that you left me
Track Name: chomping at the bit
who knows where we'll be in 5 years time
i just know my knees are killing me
from all the lines
i've been waiting in, that i work between
boxed all day
reflecting the self-questioning
i haven't got away from yet

we're all just trying to be happy here
but really who's got the time
fighting off all our woes
will keep us busy

chomping at the bit
mixing blood with spit
before you know it
your teeth are on the floor
what would jung have to say about this?
you know i really couldn't say but i do know this

we're all just trying to be happy here
but really who's got that time
fighting off all our woes
will keep us busy until we die
Track Name: past life
the fact remains
that it's easier
not to keep looking back at all
it happens when
you flip the switch
i've been trying desperately to hold down

ooh
aah
ooh
what should we do x2
aah
what should we do x2

you know
as well as i do
no one ever survives their past lives
so why
would we ever try
to relive one

ooh
aah
ooh
what should we do x2
aah
what should we do x2

because it doesn't feel the same
not now that we cut the cord
follow your pulse
head to heart, hip to toe
find the beat
then let it go
Track Name: orangina filth
overcharged & underfed
one foot on the other's head
neck & neck
under eyes of the walking dead

that shit's out there & it's getting in
you can't rely on a thick skin

build it up from within
you know you should've
by now, but it's difficult
i know you could've
used a hand, but mine were tied
'cause that shit's out there

and i can't rely
on a thick skin

no

no one can do it for you
you're the only one

it's true
