Track Name: compartments
You're looking at the ground, counting the stones as they fall
and I don't know what to say and I think that's alright
'cause speech is hard to put together
and we don't need to strain our voices
if you want to hold my hand
or if you want to look away, well that's alright

I can feel the earthquakes when you move
I can taste the concrete underneath my feet
and I'm borderline, stealing cars and robbing banks
and getting away with it

if you want to hold my hand
or if you want to look away
or if you want to kiss me
or if you want to walk away
or if you want to lay here beside me
or if you want to get up and leave
or if you want to fall asleep next to me
or if you want to sleep alone

well that's alright x5
Track Name: fragile/bodies
You pulled over to the side of the road cause you couldn't stop the bleeding
and they took you to the hospital to try and find the reason
it seems like your red blood cells were not there as you needed
and i blame all the years you spent trying to help everyone but yourself

and its been about two decades now you've been cleaning up after other people, they hand you a small amount of what they have as if they need it
all alone in those big fancy houses, they live in a way that makes me sick

and I wish I could take it all away x2

and I wish I could be just like you, I wish I could be so strong
but I know its a hard road, that you've been on
and I wish I could be like you, I wish I could be that strong
I wish I could be like you, I wish I will one day be that strong
but I know I'll never be.
Track Name: barriers
You built a wall and it was too tall to see over
I tried my best to break through the stone
so I could see what was on the other side
but you were made of something much more stronger than me
and I broke both my hands just to try and get thorough it
And I am so fucking tired.

but I don't blame you for your security measures
I just don't do too well with those kinds of authority figures
and you asked me where I was going
& I told you somewhere I could see the trees rolling over the hills and the river cutting through them.
Somewhere I could rest my head

Maybe I just don't know where I'm going to x3

Maybe I just don't know where I'm going
Track Name: patterns
I heard that you were leaving today
well its good to see you, i hope you take care
I'll have tol catch you the next time you come out this way
but until then I'll be seeing you

and they said don't let the rain keep you down
and they said I hope things go well out there

I heard that you were leaving today
I'm sorry we never got to hang out
I'm sure youll be back in town someday soon
and I hope that im still around

cause I feel like im always wanting to go
and i feel like im never standing still enough
and maybe next time your in town
i wont feel like hiding in my room

I heard that you were leaving today
I guess ill see you whenever
Ill be sitting on this porch again
waiting for the sun to dry me up
waiting for the sun to burn me up
Track Name: under flowers (parts 1 & 2)
you got a call from your mother to tell you
she met with the doctors and that she misses you
and its so gray out and not even raining
you say that you're sorry for the way that you're feeling

and i got a call from my mother to tell me
my dads in the hospital again
And i was across the country and im still fucking out here
i see shes growing up and i've missed a couple of years
i've missed years/

And were all scared of the towns we grew up in
cause they know more about us then we want them to

and i know, i know you feel all alone x2

There are people that love you here x3
there are people that love you
