Track Name: Opposite Directions
slow it down i've had enough
i'm running out of ways to rationalize
the number of days you take in the dark
i'm running out of ways to say goodbye

what do we have now?
we're nothing but the ghost of potential
when you don't take the time to define things
you find the time to run away

(you got lost)
as fast as you can
(but i stayed here)
the opposite direction
(you got lost)
as fast as you can
(but i stayed here)
fuck expectations

my thoughts move me to place i don't want to be
you don't want to be
i can forget the promises
but not the feelings of your hands on me
when i was trying to end my tomorrow
you were aching for that taste of escape

(you got lost)
as fast as you can
(but i stayed here)
the opposite direction
(you got lost)
as fast as you can
(but i stayed here)
fuck expectations
Track Name: This Song Is Definitely Not About A Boy
i was 16 when you first told me
not to hold your hand in front of your friends
you were always too cool, you were always too punk
you were always listening to better bands
but i was pretty young and i was pretty dumb
because somehow you convinced me you were great
but you'll never get those ugly sweaters back
and by the way that was a really shitty mixtape

i hope i never see you like that again
in the front of my car in the passenger's seat
oh you look so ugly when you cry
learn to use your left hand in the middle of the night
so you can get to work on time
no more early morning mess

you say that you're an anarchist
but you'll never quit your day job

i guess i gotta say i'm glad you moved on
because those drunk texts were getting pretty lame
and yeah she's really pretty, yeah she's really funny
but she's just a less curvy version
of me myself and i, we're so over it
me myself and i, we're so done
me myself and i, we're so over
so done, so over it, so done, stop calling me

i hope i never see you like that again
in the front of my car in the passenger's seat
oh you are so ugly inside
learn to use your left hand in the middle of the night
so you can get to work on time
no more early morning mess
Track Name: Lighter Fluid
there's nothing to stop me tonight
from kissing every boy who looks my way
and i wonder if i could fall in love
with every person here

because we're all the same
and we're all looking for somebody else
someone to take away the dark things
that threaten to never leave

i pity the fools who fall in love
nothing that makes you feel good can last
because if things were in terms of forever
they'd all lose their shine too fast

ironically the only things that go away
are the ones that were supposed to stay
but he only wants me in the night
or in the day when no one's around

and i swear i could leave tonight
and leave everything behind
for this godforsaken town to sustain itself off of
to make something out of

i pity the fools who fall in love
nothing that makes you feel good can last
because if things were in terms of forever
they'd all lose their shine too fast
Track Name: Hips
"please take care of me"
you said and spent the night
scars disappeared
as you left bruises on my thighs

you asked if you could touch my hips
because you like the way they feel
i like the way they fit with yours

hold me through the figuring out
of what we don't understand
floating in and out
things never happen the way we plan them

you asked if you could touch my hips
because you like the way they feel
i like the way they fit with yours

you asked if you could touch my hips
but you touched much more
don't leave me like this
Track Name: The Cautious End Of Things
these rooms are so suffocating
the bricks that hold me up
are the bricks that cave me in

ghosts and fingers
memories linger
somebody please make them go away

honestly i've been picking apart
the reasons to not be
on a string anymore
honestly i've been moving
towards the cautious end of things
why hold on anymore

your palpitations mirror mine
the bricks that you have molded
crumble around your mind

you didn't mean it
you only said it

please be careful with the things that you don't understand


honestly i've been picking apart
the reasons to not be
on a string anymore
honestly i've been moving
towards the cautious end of things
why hold on anymore

honesty is sickening
when you've let yourself believe
Track Name: New Coast
i don't really know anymore
what keeps me here and trying
because everyone's been lying
when they said they cared

i need a sunrise on a new coast
to take all this ash and turn it into something beautiful
i need a sunrise on a new coast
i need anything that's new at all

everyone around me is full of fire
they have reasons and sparks
they fit in with the beautiful ones
but i'll say goodbye soon

because i know what it's like in the night
when the things you've tried to forget
sit at the foot of your bed
i know what it's like in the night
when the things you've tried to forget
they pierce and they ramble

they pierce and they ramble
they won't let me go

i need something to keep me alive
Track Name: Grayest Places
i've been driving to your house
underneath the inky skyline
the water froze to the glass
so i waited for you outside

stop this deprecation of the corners
where i should be safe from the grayest places
that suspend these teenagers
and selfish, perfect families

stop this deprecation of the corners
where i should be safe from the grayest places
that suspend me
in the spaces in-between

will you hold on til the new moon
i am letting go of you
are you drifting through shades of blue
i am letting go of you
Track Name: Overflowing
something so personal
you keep it quiet in your hometown
this room is overflowing
so we keep our eyes cast down

the only promise i will keep
involves some form of haunting

break me

i'm building walls around my mind
so keep your distance
if you keep from doing what you're thinking
i will keep you in my plans

the only promise you have kept
was never meaning what you said

i'd rather be in my head than in your bed
if i carve deep enough i can fade away entirely

i'll never get what gets you off
i'll never get what gets you

all i wanted was to feel complete
Track Name: I'll Be The One Who Comes Around
back on the road again
counting down to the city lights
remembering the ways
we wasted those city nights
with cold hands and close faces
and mirrored eyes
we left the world behind

so when the winter sets in
i'll be wrapped up in your sheets
knowing the new year's coming
with new people to meet
but for tonight you're mine
the best one i will find
so the next time you're in town
i'll be the one who comes around

i heard you got a job in fairfax
and you fall asleep on the train
commuting from day to day
and you find a new girl every night
to fill the space that we've created

so when the summer starts to end
i'll be headed for the coastline
knowing there's potential to mend
and make up for lost time
but that night you were mine
still the best one i will find
so the next time you're in town
i'll be the one who comes around
Track Name: Darkest Nights
the last time i saw you was in the morning
blurry vision heals most everything
you taught me self medication
through the darkest nights

but i still want to wake up by your side

but i don't change with the seasons
i'm stuck in the past
you spend your nights in the graveyards
but the sun always comes too fast

you've got a universe inside your head and you locked me out
twisting insides, anxiety spills out of my pours
and the indents in my appearance
that show my emotion, you know i don't show that very often
to anyone
but you

but i still want to wake up by your side
