Track Name: Sum Sun
didn't mean to pray to shadows
only wanted to hide the light
but when i open up my eyes i can't feel anything
past a certain point of bright

i lie in bed 'til my feet are numb
and shadows pass me by
it's no one i'm familiar with pieces of my mind
splattered on the window
painted with a name i never can make out but it doesn't really matter
everyone's turned out to be the same

sheets over my head--
don't pull them down for me
make sure to make it so that I can feel a breeze

all i ever wanted was some sun/son
all i've ever needed is this person i've finally run across the map
and still am feeling in this way
i'm so glad it didn't have to happen that way

sheets over my head--
don't pull them down for me
make sure to make it so that I can feel a breeze
Track Name: Frolic (Ur the One)
oh mikey baby,
you're so sweet to me
never say anything too mean
and if you do
i'll correct you
i know that you'll apologize
cause you're the sweetest person in my life

people come
people go
frolic through my head

you're the one
that's stuck in the mud
of my emotions and of my love
send me to a place above

people round here
make me sad, they get me down
you let me know that i'm enough
and if you can't, well,
i am still satisfied
just knowing that you're in my life

people come
people go
frolic through my head

you're the one
that's stuck in the mud
of my emotions and of my love
send me to a place above
Track Name: Spinnin
forget me not and i won't lay you down
tell me you need this and i won't try running around
the only way i'll ever be ashamed
is if you can tell me i'm not running my own way

i want to run to a flickering light
but flickering lights are prone to disappear
i haven't cried since my spirit died

but in the light
i see a shining face
a visage dripping with deception outrage
in the dark
i see your shining eyes
telling me i--
tell me not to be surprised

send me in a dizzy
spin my head round
so i can't see i can't feel i can't hear what's been going around
cause i'm hearing new things
listening better now
my eyes don't feel what they did

and the only way i'll be ashamed
is if you can give me the reason i am bent for hell
i didn't cry when my spirit died

but so many things
made me want to cry today
and someone feels guilty for something i made

didn't mean to be so sad
¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Track Name: To Tongues
never thought i'd fly again
never thought i could move quickly
achin' never meant what i thought it did
until it was handed back to me again

never thought i'd be shy again
but something took my voice
two tongues sneak out of the same brain
to me they'll never be quite the same

move a little quieter
move a little quickly
move so that no one can see
move out of me and i won't need your company

it gets real hard to imagine
what i'd do without that voice
seems to come to me in the night

a childhood dream that was snatched from me
taken from my hands
pulled out from under my feet
never given back to me

i've got jars on jars filled with thoughts
fill shelves to the top of my head
Track Name: Tew
two parts
to be reconciled not to be mixed together
without permission
without some kind of signal that says to start

two pieces
that cannot be mixed
before we know what they will produce
before we have some sort of idea

two minds
that will not come together
without wanting to be separated
without some kind of signal of being repurposed

one part
that will not hold the other
without breaking
without seeming tethered down

but it's a fine fine line when they're brought together
they don't know what's going on
it's a fine fine sight when they come together
nicely
Track Name: Condensed
well i know i'm not
tall and elegant
know i'm bout 5'3

but look down on me
you might see
something but my hair and me

i'm condensed
not ephemeral
i'm charcoal
you're a spark in a fire

may be tight wound
but i sure do sound
like i know what i'm talking bout

put your filter on me
and i'll look the same
pass it on for blame

but look down on me
you might see
something but my shoes and me

pursed lips
wide hips
tell your story again

but it's too late
can't make it out
i'm too short to hear

just one story
no elevator
no more steps to climb

but look down on me
you might see
something but my lips and me

i'm condensed
not ephemeral
i'm charcoal
you're a spark in a fire
may be tight wound
but i sure do sound
like i know what i'm talking about
Track Name: Arrows
all the arrows pointed at you
i can be a shield
only for a little while
second chances only mend opportunities for regret
i'm done growing
you're still a child

run don't run
stray from these sounds
we put together for the first time
but these tangles won't make us decide
what to bring to the table

don't try to talk loud enough

a mirror between all of us
i'll be on your side
only for a little while
the second time i gave you mine
you shoved it on for smiles
i knocked my teeth out
you're still growing

run don't run
stray from these sounds
we put together for comparison
but these tangles won't make us decide
what to bring to the table

don't try to talk loud enough

so, i've been told many time
the sound you made only came in my ear
so, i hold it open for you now
