Track Name: Assertive/Integrative
Finally noticed something unfamiliar
Contemplated if I could ever feel comfortable
New surroundings that terrify
Complimented with an anxious drive to leave

And I dug a hole into my skin
And I drove a fucking car through it
I was looking for some symmetry
A synonym
To the endless thing
Track Name: Mouthwash
And I hated when you did it
But now I do it too
So who is the hypocrite?

And I bruised my brain
Trying to separate
What I said and what I really mean.

And if consistency
Is a crutch that you need
Then I don't know how I'll fulfill my end.
Track Name: Deposit to Primary
Advertise yourself
Wouldn't want them to forget
That you exist
'Cause if you don't then they'll never think to ask

And it's a gnawing sort of thing
A phantom limb on a rusty frame
I should be thankful for what I have
I'm always thinking about what I lack

Why do we feel the need?
To vocalize everything
Yeah we say so much
Without it meaning much

Yeah I don't even know
Don't even know what I saw
Yeah I stopped trying to process
Stimulate the decay
Track Name: A Joke You Weren't In On
Everything made so much sense
When I wasn't thinking for the day
So should I dig out my eyes?
'Cause I might see better blind
Of course I didn't think it mattered
Until it stopped appearing there
So please don't take it personally
'Cause I'm just dealing with me

And I was crying in the bathroom
And you could hear it through the vents
But you didn't say a single thing
Yeah to give and not receive
And yeah there was shouted name
And there was a physical display
And I still blame them to this day
Yeah I still blame to this day

And I am so god damn naive
For thinking things would stay the same
Yeah you have new energy
But it just isn't for me
Of course I didn't think it mattered
Until it stopped appearing there
So please don't take it personally
'Cause I'm just dealing with me
Track Name: Of Blooming
She said the days are getting longer
The moon's behind a veil of yellow
I think there's something in the water
Well I was just trying to get some sleep

Use the buildings to block the wind
While I'm drowning in a sea of red hair
(While I'm drowning in my bedroom sheets)

Well yeah I shouldn't complain
Track Name: Ubik
The floor is always moving
The ground is always shaky
The weeds they keep on growing

And I don't wanna think that it's all insignificant
Maybe feeling good most days is really enough

My skin is always itchy
My vision's always blurry
My teeth they keep on shifting

And I don't wanna think that it's all insignificant
Maybe feeling good most days is really enough
