Track Name: Hide in Sight
i'll take the car down 50 it's not that long a drive i'll skip out on the meeting i've got nothing to hide park the car around the block so no one sees me with you even when i close my eyes and try not to i feel you hide in sight cause i only think i'm doing right hide in sight from the willfully blind hide in sight cause there's no going back from by your side hide in sight cause i won't see it in your eyes let's hole up for the weekend forget all that we know i've got my guilt for kindling i've got your hate to blow something old and something new and something borrowed and blue even when i close my eyes and fight i fucking feel you hide in sight cause i only think i'm doing right hide in sight from the willfully blind hide in sight cause there's no going back from by your side hide in sight cause i won't see it in your eyes hide in sight cause i won't admit that i'm not doing right hide in sight because i'll only deny hide in sight cause there's no going back from by your side hide in sight cause i won't see it in your eyes
Track Name: Dissolve
floating in mid-air imaginary strings pulling from deep space no one seems to care and i start to disassociate fingers pulling through my hair sensations screaming from sub-space i sit on the roof and watch all the little houses catch on fire and i start to dissolve you can't get through to me overwhelmed by anxiety my life my choice it's hard to scream when you don't have a voice floating on the wave of a thousand souls of wasted potential and it sounds like this dissolve you can't get through to me overwhelmed by anxiety my life my choice it's hard to scream when you don't have a voice can't get through to me overwhelmed by anxiety but i'm still holding on am i the only one? am i the only one? am i the only one? you put all your problems on me i can't stand you get away from me can't trust a single word you say i can't stand you stay away from me am i the only one? feeling frantic in the mid-atlantic i got places i would rather be am i the only one? beltway's got too much damn traffic am i real or am i make believe am i the only one? only one? only one?
Track Name: Bugs
the summer bugs are biting harder than they've ever bit before i drag my knees i drag my elbows drag my arms across the floor dryer heat's higher no luck i'll burrow deeper under skin that she could ever dig me out i'll spread disease across your continent a plague upon your house and no i don't believe they're in your bed and no i don't believe they're in your bed and no i don't believe they're in your bed and no i don't believe they're in your bed i don't she said the boys you fuck will rot your brains will rot your soul will rot your heart the ones you love will leave you sleepless picking skin and scabs it's easy sing sweetly she said the room will never be as clean as you require it to be the hair will always clog the drain the dust will always tumble freely and no i don't believe they're in your bed and no i don't believe they're in your bed and no i don't believe they're in your bed and no i don't believe they're in your bed i don't [no i don't believe they're in your bed x100000000000] and no i don't believe they're in your bed and no i don't believe they're in your bed and no i don't believe they're in your bed and no i don't believe they're in your bed i don't
Track Name: Back to Olympia
i crossed the impersonal grids humans try to take control stumbled into a coffee shop you were twenty years old confused and sweet and pristine you were afraid of being mean my love's like an evergreen tree always getting rained on but still so lush and green from the east side to the west side by the way of state and the forty-one soaking on the outside feeling on the inside yea i don't even miss the sun i'll whisper sweet things in your ear like i hold no expectations i can just sit here with myself this was more of a vacation from all the shit that i don't miss about home i'm tearing at the seam my love's like an evergreen tree always getting rained on but still so lush and green from the east side to the west side by the way of state and the forty-one soaking on the outside feeling on the inside yea i don't even miss the sun i'm like a sponge that needs to get wrung out just feelin' too tired stressed and strung out i've got a lot to process even more to digest but it means the world when you tell me that i'm stroooonnnggg you look around and then i'm gone (i'm gone)
