Track Name: Turnpike
I'll chalk another loss up after this
The things that you kept safe can't be replaced
And to think about the locks you've grown to break
Frustrating when the chains just stay in place

You always let your guard down
And you complain when they storm your shelter

You always say the wrong thing's
And get upset until you run from cover

You always say the wrong thing's
Until you run from cover

You make it so hard to leave
When you're playing with me
I hate how you threw away everything
Tattered leaves falling from a tree
I think I've had enough

Think back
Backtrack to the time we spent
Another wasted day on our apartment steps
I wrote you into my memories
Etched your name in my back to make it hard for me.

Think back
Backtrack to the time we spent
Another wasted day on our apartment steps
I think I've had enough

I wish we never met.
Now I'm just thinking of you.

I'm just thinking on the times we had
a crooked path
We made some plans
And I don’t know how the time has passed
We split apart and didn't look back

I wrote you into my memories
Etched your name in my back to make it hard for me
I couldn’t give up as easy as you
As soon as I feel in love
You just fell out of tune
Is it so hard to say that I miss you?

You make it so hard to leave
When you're playing with me
I hate how you threw away everything
Tattered leaves falling from a tree
I think I've had enough

Think back
Backtrack to the time we spent
Another wasted day on our apartment steps
I wrote you into my memories
Etched your name in my back to make it hard for me
Track Name: Ottoman
I am swallowing my broken teeth just to make you understand
I was there for you and you used it up just to fill the air in your head

Run around my words
Everything you say is a lie
I'm too tired to try
I'm a mess I've been disguised as if I've never been alive
And I can't begin to find a way to fill the void you left inside of me when I can't fill it with you

Run around my words
I know that you hurt
I need the solace I can't grasp because you're spitting out the words before they ring out in your chest but you still.

Run around my words
Everything you say has made a mess of me
You're barely ever listening
You let it ring out

We're not the same
What did you think?
I was going to sit around a let you just ruin everything we've built and let you burn it to the ground

I am trying to find some reasons why
I'm alone and you left me high and dry
Among the table tops, your clothes ran thin inside a box
You filled with all your envy, splattered hatred while I watched you just

Run around my words
I know that you hurt
I need the solace I can't grasp because you're spitting out the words before they ring out in your chest

I don’t want to lie around
Sit and act like nothing's wrong
Believe me, when I say I'm done
your actions spoke for you so just let me be
I need to breathe

How can I say you made a mess of me?
When you're barely ever listening?

Run around my words
I know that you hurt
I need the solace I can't grasp because you're spitting out the words before they ring out in your chest but you still

Run around my words
I know that you hurt
I need the solace I can't grasp because you're spitting out the words before they ring out in your chest
Track Name: True North
I've been dissolved by my patience
it starts coming down when I say shit
and so I need a little more you involved in conversation

Word's littered to the pavement
I feel so little in your presence
It's nothing personal it's just you
I'm sick of the vision you taught me to skew I think I'm better off

Without you
And the vision you taught me to skew
It hurts to know I always tried my best
When you had the choice you'd always pick me last.

Bright eyes
You can't tell a lie
You're here for the moment
You'll turn like the tides

Bright eyes
You're doing fine
You'll tear me apart if I give you the time

I've been dissolved by my patience
it starts coming down when I say shit
and so I need a little more you involved in conversation

Word's littered to the pavement
I feel so little in your presence
It's nothing personal it's just you
I'm sick of the vision you taught me to skew I think I'm better off

Alone in my room
Filling the space cause, I'm thinking of you
The dissonance settled before it could bloom
Leaving my side without giving a clue

So why won't you give me the time of day
I guess it's all you could take
And why do I get in my head about the things you used to say

Like when you told me you loved me.
Was it just a mistake?
When you told me you loved me?
And you ended up walking away

I've been dissolved by my patience
it starts coming down when I say shit
and so I need a little more you involved in conversation
Track Name: Foxglove
It's been a while since I got out the house
Recycled day-old thoughts burned up inside
Can't try to find a reason why
The rain falls hard around this time

I wonder where the flowers go
When the pedals fly into the storm
And now I only come out stressed
I've got nothing to show but I'm trying my best

If I could just turn back the time
Or erase all these thoughts that run free in my mind
I could pretend you're still here
Pretend you're still with me here

I can't remember your face and how it lit up in my eyes
Everything's so grey now that you left me behind
I look for you in everything
I look for you in everything
I can't remember us and how we used to be lovers
And without you, I could never have another

If I could just turn back the time
Or erase all these thoughts that run free in my mind
I could pretend you're still here
Pretend you're still with me

And I still haven't found my closure
Close my eyes and you pull me closer
I miss the sound of your voice
And how you say my name
And now that your gone things won't be the same
Track Name: Solid Grasp
I wonder what happens to the things I can't see
The things you try to be
It's got me thinking about all the times you walked out when I needed you right by me

So, I drove away that night
I left my shit behind
I need anything to get you off my mind

So, I dwelled on things we said
Back when we first me
Forgot the things that I thought I might regret

Wasted time
It feels so empty
Bottled up
Hit me so heavy

And I could keep my mind in line
If I could get you off of mine
You keep climbing my spine while you dig in your nails just to make me say that I'm fine

Just to make me say that I'm fine
While you dig in your nails just to make me say that I'm fine

A solid grasp on what we had
It broke my heart but kept my ribs intact
A solid grasp on what we had
It broke my heart but kept my ribs intact

And when you said you needed me
All I could do was just run away

I booked a one-way flight away from here
I cannot stand the thought of you anymore
It's something that I can't ignore
So stupid that I fell for you
What did I really mean to you?
And Rest Assured. Lesson learned.
