Track Name: another try
who are you, and what's your name?
it feels like I've met you before
in crowded living rooms and broken down basements
feels like you're everywhere and nowhere at all

my only meaningful relationship is hundreds of miles away
and it is so very distant that it matters less and less every day

but I can't move on

pick up my coat
I know what I did wrong
go home
maybe I can give another try
Track Name: american jam
we can work it out,
let's just leave the house
everything we think we know
we think we know

I tried to leave the room
but you were anchored to the floor
your heart's been buried beneath the floorboards
Track Name: we made it work once
maybe I could tell you a story
but "would you even listen" is what I'd say
and maybe, we could take an evening stroll
but you'd probably say no anyway

it's whatever
i'm not there

so I left for my apartment
and took the long way home
just wanted to be alone

did I fuck up?
it doesn't matter now

I saw you chase your fear with boxed wine and cheap bear
thought, "what kind of life is that?"
it really tore me down
it really broke my stride

I'll go home
keep to myself tonight
it's too cold
I guess I'll just stay inside
Track Name: most nights i'd rather be somewhere else
i'm on the outside looking in
you come and ask me where I've been
but it's your need for stability
that I cannot provide

an honest letter, these things I tell her

october, make me a new man
my friends, take me home
road trips on sundays
making jokes about our futures

so just take a long drive
to somewhere you can call home
I'm not one to judge,
but you really should rush life anymore than you already are

october, make me a new man
my friends, take me home
road trips on sundays
making jokes about our futures
Track Name: slam day
I'll say whatever it is I have to
I'm not going back to sleeping alone
the night drives from yours to mine
pass the time
I can't seem to make up my mind

cigarette sunset, I regret all of it
Track Name: this is nothing i wanted to say
there's no hand in mine dragging me to places I don't want to go
people I don't want to know
there's no consequence
take me places I don't want to go
people I don't want to know

the truth is I want to lie down
this is nothing I wanted to say
it's something i'm trying to change
