Track Name: hard drive
i jiggled the chord too hard
lost all my memory
i jiggled the chord too hard
lost all my memories

my hard drive died
six months ago
a charge through wire
like t.v. snow
i lost the place where i compiled
artifacts and important files
nostalgic longing turns my stomach
still the loss it sends me running

cause i don't want to live my life all over
i just want devices to retain it
finally i see how we got older
i am working hard just to maintain
photographs and songs are moment holders
should have known they couldn't stand containment
i feel like i always get fucked over
i'm just trying hard not to complain
Track Name: at the end of your rope
every second
i have to live
i have to live them all

every step
i have to lift
i have to lift them all

if we get in a wreck
and we both break our necks
will we have spent it all right?

ain't no one says yes
you're a fucking mess
keep rolling your eyes
Track Name: waiting to tell you
waiting to tell you my life
wondering, should i spare us?
pushing the borders at night
breathing words into your hair
this touch says i feel you
this look says i'm holding on
so much for restrictions
i can't wait to give them up

just cause i know what's right
doesn't mean this isn't
if this is my one life
then i would like to know you
who's the nicest guy?
who is the kindest woman?
i still have the black eye
so i fear i shouldn't

looking over my shoulder to see you
impulse i can't defy
oh, luna! so red, then white
your orbit arm around me

waiting to tell you my life
i have to tell you a secret
funny, tragic and trite
what you feel the deepest
these words don't suffice
can only tell you in pieces
if this is my one life
i want to know what peace is
Track Name: everything is ok
happiness made me write all these songs
i don't know why they came out so glum
i can lose sight of what's going on
telling myself a sad story
sometimes i feel like my life's almost done
younger kids are better at this
i have a job, try not to look like a slob
got my goals in a row on a dunkin donuts receipt

i get ahead of myself
future hangover
parabolic mirror
see just a bit further

identity is like a macaroni sculpture
vulnerable like a dog with a bird in its mouth
let's just check out and forget all our culture
this place is shitty, but our friends are around

in a few weeks, maybe i'll have a band
maybe out of the blue will email me back
songs are my windows, songs made me cry
sometimes they're the only thing keeping me alive
