Track Name: Okay, Okay (Everything Is Fine)
I don't want to deal with this right now, and I don't want to talk about
How I've been feeling
Yeah, I've been eating
Panicked and confused
It's nothing I'm not used to
Am I still talkin?
Is anyone listening at all?

It's a new routine each day, yeah
To fight a sickness that causes so much pain
We never feel it but I guess we'll be okay
We're okay

I don't know what to say to you right now, I don't know how to talk about
How you've been feeling
Have you been eating?
Dependent and confused
It's not what you're used to
Are you still talking?
Cause I'm not listening at all.

It's a process everyday
To fight a sickness that causes so much pain
We never feel it but I guess we'll be okay
We're okay

Everything is fine, Everything is fine
Track Name: Virginia Beach
I'm fading out
I wonder how this helps anyone's anxiety.
With both feet on the dashboard,
my head resting toyour cheek,
works better than the shit they gave me.

Windows down,
my head in the clouds,
moving air and the taste of salt inside my mouth
helps me chill out
and it's all I can do
to not feel defenseless
and to keep my heart rate down,
long enough to take deep breaths
and keep it inside my head


I'm not giving up, but I'm falling out of touch
with finding my way out of all the graves I made
just looking for myself

And I can barely sleep when I'm at home
and I'm not the only one who leaves the road but can't come back down

If I keep this inside my head
then I will learn to deal with it
If I keep this inside my head, inside my head

I’m not giving up, but I’m losing touch
Track Name: Your Design
Fuck boi on a motor bike
Tryna steal my girl on a tuesday night
I'm sitting at home, she's playing with fire
Pretty makeup and your best dress
Favorite shade of second best
Are you holding out on me to look good for a guy on his back seat

When we're alone there's a difference
If he walked in, would you suddenly care less

Any other way
We try and work this out
He's just another mistake so what's another three more
We’re finding out there’s a better way
than shutting off and placing blame
We’re both part of your design

Play it off and everything is fine
Can't shake the feeling is this not alright?
Cause you know if it were me
You'd cry and you’d scream
Before anyone speaks
I thought I knew you better
Or you thought I was secure
But now every little thing
Makes my heart beat out my chest

We're both better on our own there's a better way than shutting off or placing blame this time
Track Name: Broozer
You never told me
I never asked
I didn't think I had to ask
Your mind is absent
You're never here and when you're here you're not here

You said things were getting better and I thought I could help
I knew you couldn't stand to see me like that I knew you couldn't stomach the process
You said, you said that you want to leave I guess can't you see that it's ok with me

I lost track of our nights
I think my brain shut off the moment you'd arrive
I burned all of your notes
Along with any trace of you and me
Anything that looks like you and me

I spent the better part of last year learning how to cope with self control
How could I be with you if I can't stand myself x4

I spent the better part of last year
You were the worst part of last year
Track Name: Fallout
Off and on it's been a rough couple years but for him it's the past few weeks he can't stand watching her and his best friend go on without him.

On and on it goes, he's letting himself go and it shows
When he’s not unloading the bar
It’s Fallout 4 and missing her
He makes a b-line to the couch
Every night after work when he gets out
And it's all he can think to do to not think of nothing

Off and on it's been a rough couple years but for him it's the past few weeks he can't stand watching her and his best friend go on without him.

Go on without him

She's living by herself in the city
She likes the way the skyline looks in his eyes
Even if it's just tonight It's alright
On and on it goes he’s letting himself go and it shows
Easy come and there she goes they never stood a chance

Off and on it's been a rough couple years but for him it's the last few weeks he can't stand watching her and his best friend go on without him.
Track Name: Paper Teeth
I spent most of my time in the tree outside my house
Paying no mind to the demons that were left by someone else
But, how could you know how I feel?
When I feel like I’m a burden when I tell you about myself
And how I wake up hurting every day

Maybe it’s not half as bad as I think
Maybe I’m not quite as worthless
As I would try to make it out to be
I spent most nights up with myself
In the void of introspection
How hard it is to make ourselves believe…
Believe in anything

I’m biding my time till you speak
I’m biting my tongue with paper teeth
If it doesn’t matter to you then it doesn’t matter to me too

How could you know how I feel?
When I feel like I’m a burden when I tell you about myself
But you’re just the one who’s paid to listen

Maybe we aren’t half as bad as we think
Maybe we’re not quite as worthless
As we would try to make ourselves believe
I spent most nights up with myself
In the void of your depression
We’re perfectly imperfect after all

How could you know how I feel?
If you don’t know how it feels?
Track Name: Friends
I hate all of my friends
and I think that they hate me
They're never there when I need them
but I'm there when they need me


And I'm tired of being a ghost
Stuck in your hallway
Maybe it’s better I’m alone so no one will hear me complain


I’m so sick of all my friends
I'm pretty sure that they're sick of me
They're never there when I need them But I'm there when they need me

And I'm tired of being a ghost
Stuck in your hallway
Maybe it’s better I’m alone so no one will hear me complain

Well, the idea sounds lovely
But, we are so lonely
It stopped being funny
When I pictured the ending
It's just part of our social construct


Me and all my misery
It's me and all my misery
Me and all my misery
You and all my memories
You are my anxiety
Yeah it's me, but you’re the one that made me believe
