Do you remember boredom? And the freedom that came with it? We wanted freedom from desire but they just gave us more desires constantly carrying an unquenchable thirst I once filled up notebooks I had no surface to scroll through snatching thoughts out of the air before they fall victim to a flawed human I only remember because I refuse to forget.

Living Room 05:09
My living room was the only venue we had.
 We needed to play a show. 
We waited till my parents left,
 the weekend before graduation I said: “call everyone, tell them we’ve been waitin” The same faces staring back 

the same places haunting me
 
for all my efforts and what they may lack I was only demanding my own autonomy I was jealous of your Telecaster but I knew I couldn’t play guitar as well as you could. 
I found old recordings, ‘member you once told me: “I can tell you wrote that song ‘bout her” ? Gathered in communion
 still in standard tuning, 
sound echoed off the walls

of our living rooms and basements. 
No means of escape, just teenage concert halls and we thought of a narrative,
 a narrative to carry our hearts and our heels from rust on steel and I kissed as a roman candle blew out into the field 
so naive, we believed our love was real. Like some little kid, just out of frame waving their arms, screaming their name. An integral part that keeps you awake, it’s still in your heart 
it can’t go away. Were we just sitting around waiting for stones to bleed? 
fumbling in the dark for which we could not name but need? 
She said "I can feel it, there’s something hanging over me
" swimming in shallow waters searching for the deep. 
And we fell in love with the myth of our age; threw our rural anxieties up against a blank page.
 We were free like all the others but we still called ourselves caged, 
cause we were just begging for something to liberate.

Dingus 04:18
Locked out lucked out, in need correction It was a hobby now it’s an obsession Would you change the station? I’m getting impatient, man A sea of distractions Constant detachment No alternatives no dichotomy no action free to leave but still held captive just stayin the same the same the same the same I’m fuckin’ up locked in a pattern I need to disrupt Oh hello angel immaculate creation. are you my prize? Are you my salvation? a golden ticket to take me out of the basement a means of escaping it I was all I ever wanted to be a sight to behold, seen and believed dipping my brush in vanity painting myself to spite my enemies What are you waiting for is it a reason, is it a sign, is it a miracle? It's not coming waiting for nothing. The one thing they’ll never take is my God-given right to make mistakes and every failure that’s let my body take this shape I’ve never been better

D.W.T.B.A. 02:57
Let’s go out on the city let’s go into the town let’s shake the willow tree and grab at whatever falls to the ground let’s write our names on the walls see who’s returning the call I Don’t Want To Be Alone Everyone’s like a stranger everyone’s talking so strange don’t know what I’m doing here and I can’t remember anyone’s name Just runnin into the dark trying to drown out the sound of my heart I D on’t Want To Be Alone Do you want to be alone?
5.
Esther 03:06
I’m just a sad girl standing a bit too tall I’m a pile of limbs I can’t do much at all I want to crawl out of my skin and crawl into hers 
it wouldn’t solve my problems but at least I’d have her way with words You don’t know me so don’t act like you do You don’t know me telling me what I’m saying isn’t true and on the outside of the glass everything’s miles away I’m trapped in this body and can’t escape And when it’s over and I’m waiting for my day to come I’ll put one foot in front of the other one
6.
Animal 02:51
I am an animal I feel comin' within my skin for all of what I am I feel it all cave in I may be learned I may be taught who is my teacher? what is and what is not thought I was stronger than to succumb to the words I dare not wish grace my tongue wanna believe it recite it all find some divinity but I still am an animal
7.
White Shoes 01:02
the liquor in here is pumping like an artery I want to make you part of me I wish the bridge between us wasn’t so hard to see I can tell you’re somewhere you don’t want to be White shoes unblemished it’s as if The Grand Chemist was trying to get them to crawl through the wreckage if you’re the rule then I am the exception but I just want to be the answer to your question "With all these suitors standing in line, are you looking to be held high, or just someone to stand behind?"
8.
Wild child, wandering spirit what do you want from me let’s just sit and talk right now I want to know everything but you got such a longer reach than me you’re takin' extra steps while we were runnin’ in your bed at night my head went running while you slept she’s all moving pictures and paper cutouts and everything in between she knows the words to all my songs but she don’t know what they mean I want to get higher, it’s the way she looks at me she leaves a taste in my mouth like the skin on a tangerine (Sorry Morgan) Her shoulders fall like clifftops and her hair runs like a stream her parents built her from the ground up she’s my teenage dream but we all gotta wake up sometime sometimes you gotta kill the fantasy I’m looking in my mirror asking: am I the man she wants to see? Baby say goodbye, I know I'm not your guy
9.
Layin’ on bed I was on fire 
tryin’ to hold back burnin’ desire We talked about how our lives were a mess arm on your shoulder
your hand on my chest You’ve really changed
 babe, I have to
o everything stops when it’s just me and you I love the street light, you love the sounds I think that I think that I’ve figured you out and We’re Just Kids I wanted you from the very first
 moment I saw you, some kind of curse We walked in step, hearts beat out of time and I kept on waiting for stars to align Talked for some time, had a few drinks 
love how you talk, the way that you think 
and you’re pretty too (I’m a sucker for that
) don’t know where you’re going, but not going back and we’re just kids... Young adults
 Old teenagers with great big hearts supernovas about to explode
 and break apart
 into a big black hole Stand in the door ready to leave 
 your face said: "this will never repeat" don’t wanna break everything I touch just one fragile thing I managed to crush Some other place, some other time 
I would be yours, you would be mine these couple hours were just not enough, but what do we really know about love? We’re just kids...

Bicycle 03:53
I like to ride my bicycle along the streets of this tourist town not even thinking about the road ahead I’m pedalin’ so that I can’t be found what do you know about my sorrow? It’s not so easy to “just let go” Oh but it could be alright sitting in the sunshine and you would be all mine if we just took a little time oh I want to go there tell me that you don’t care I got a couple lawn chairs and a bottle of wine
