Track Name: Patterns Prevail
trust me you don't wanna touch me
you will lie and say you love me
i wanted to be the new light in your life
trust me you don't wanna love me
i tried my best to tread lightly
i never wanted to ruin your fantasy

theres a secret runnin'
through my ear
i am rocky waters
and you are crystal clear

i can hear the whispers baby
all these secrets drive me crazy
colours shift between the shading
i can see patterns prevailing
Track Name: Roll With Me
i can't place who you are
so familiar and brand new
what is it that you've got
so effortlessly cool
you don't have to look at all
ya why would you anyways
all i wanna do is talk
i just don't know what to say

and you can write me back someday
all i have is time to wait
but i can't wake up in my bed
alone another day

roll with me and step out
i'll die without you around
i am happy to just follow
and surrender to the sorrow
roll with me and step out

i can't place who you are
so familiar and brand new
what is it that you've got
so effortlessly cool
none of this is real at all
i watch you like a cartoon
and i feel like the biggest fool
trying to impress you
Track Name: Every Flower I See
i wish to pick you every flower i see
and before you leave (please)
just let me walk you to your door
and i, i wish to walk with you down every street
so simply
i remember everything you've ever worn
(so don't go now)
cuz I've only just begun to get to know you
and i can think of all the fun that we'd be having
do you ever watch the clouds while remembering me
sometimes i really don't believe you wanna hang with me
are you just lonely
or maybe i should give a little more
and I, i sit and watch the gardens turn from green to blue
thinking about you
i don't know if i have felt this way before
Track Name: Luv Always
I'm tired of playing along
tired of pretending I'm strong
i haven't been home in a year
so something must be wrong

broken time like cracking clay
and i don't know where I'm falling from
in a while
love always
as i lie under the fiery sun
ya its time to separate
and reflect on whats to come

you're out of work and broke
lifes the biggest joke
we;ve got nothing left
and the wind don't even blow
we've got no story to tell
we're all in the same hell
and I'm not afraid to admit
that baby I need help
Track Name: Didn't Even Cry
everybody seems to be going through some things
from what i've seen
i'm feeling it bad today
I'm not myself today
so maybe when you see me later
we could just lie together
cuz I've got something on mind
(i didn't even cry)
i feel so terrified
(i didn't even cry)
how about u
i'm just a stereotype
with these gloomy thoughts in my mind
we could walk around sometime
( didn't even cry)
untangle all the knots from our spine
(didn't even cry)
hows that sound 2 u
everybody seems to be going through some things
from what i've heard
how do you make things work for you
how do you take all the bad news
so go easy on each other
i can't even cry but i wanna
cuz I've got something on mind
(i didn't even cry)
i feel so terrified
(i didn't even cry)
spiralling down the slide
(i didn't even cry)
how do u do
Track Name: High On My Mind
looking through a telescope
at a letter in an envelope
i can't make out what she wrote
i guess i will never know

like a precious stone
high on my mind
sitting on her throne
high on my mind
eyes of indigo
high on my mind

lying on the river bed
her hair just like unwinding thread
she swims up stream
no place to be
then she floats down peacefully
Track Name: Exceptionally Ordinary
reality is not my thing
it exists so we can escape it
how far can i go
and what will it bring
if i stop now
i might never shake it
and i don't care if life stays blue
i guess this is just what i'm going through

if i could tear myself away
and end up in another place
i might not be so sick of you

how familiar a sensation
it exists for me to escape it
how exceptionally ordinary
have all my thoughts recently become
and i don't care if life stays blue
i guess this is just what i'm going through

pumping
seeding
sinking
feeling
Track Name: A Boring Story
i gave up thinking
no search in mind
don't get too clever now
they'll easily find
something wrong with you
and say
this is the only way you'll be alright

don't look back at her
you don't remember it anyways
and things were just the same as they were in those days
you're just a little older now
you're not the only one whose fading out

you're fading out
Track Name: She's A Fantasy
from a lonely heart i've been dying to write this
she's just some thoughts in my head
she came and went
from a sea of nothingness
send her a card to her last known address
i'll take a shot if she she exists
we've never met
just a shadow during sunset
i traveled far just to see her smile
in the front seat of a car
and in that moment things finally made sense to me

she's in my day dreams
i see her hiding in the seams
a freak like a ghost to me
we might never be
cuz she's a fantasy

i remember the last time i felt like this
i was in the wilderness i was a mess
and a canyon was burning
under her wings it all brought me here again
where i can dream and pretend
theres a connection
ya i been looking for a friend
for many years and miles
in the river isles
she can find me in the end
but as of now she only exists to me
Track Name: Try Not To Hang On So Hard
baby try not to hang on so hard
it'll only get in your way
keep it all close to your heart
don't let it slip away
baby try not to hang on so hard
keep it all close to your heart
baby try not to hang on so hard
baby try not to hand on so hard
lose a little of yourself each day
let it all just come apart
and feel it drip away
baby try not to hang on so hard
keep it all close to your heart
baby try not to hang on so hard
just melt away
if you do it'll be ok
just step into the rain
and wash away the frozen part of me
baby try not to hang on so hard
if you do it'll be ok
i know you've got a broken heart
i let you slip away
Track Name: Caught Lookin'
caught lookin missed by train
caught lookin late again
caught lookin turn around
are you real where am i now

caught lookin can't look away now
caught lookin for some love cuz mine aint good enough
caught lookin can't look away now
caught lookin for your love

caught lookin made a meal
caught lookin at nothing real
caught sleeping can't even dream
so out of sync with everything
caught lookin so i look away
i still remember yesterday
Track Name: Trying To Decide
Im walkin’ to a new vibe 
Steppin out to a brand new beat 
I know you know what it feels like 
to stop n cry in the middle of the street 
The train ain’t always on time 
But I hope you’ll still be waitin for me 
I’m just walkin’ 
Trying to decide 

My minds not made up but my heart is broke 
I try to resist but it’s so hard to say no 
Things move so fast 
Can’t even see what i’ve done 
Still feel the loneliest in the company of everyone

It worries me
This kind of thing 
But I can’t help the questioning 
the years used to go by slow 
but now My heart won’t even try to let go 

I see the motion of the colours and the scenery 
Seems to me everything is as it should be 
So laissez faire
When you gave your heart to me 
I tried and tried to be everything I could be 

Im walkin’ to a new vibe 
Steppin out to a brand new beat 
Suddenly everything feels alright 
Don’t wanna cry in the middle of the street 
The train ain’t always on time
But I know that you’ll be waitin for me 
I’m just walkin’ 
Trying to decide 
Track Name: Forgot To Feel
walked by the river
noticed her shiver
i felt cold too
but i looked away
i got a fever
couldn't feel that either
i drank some water
and was on my way
she ended it with me
didn't feel that really
i'll probably call her by the end of the day
i lost a treasure
that i'll remember forever
things will get better
if i deactivate
i don't have much time now
maybe you could throw me a line
i can't seem to let myself loose of this
little love of mine
took a bite of an apple
began to unravel
a wave of sunlight washes over me
in a valley for hours
didn't notice the flowers
not even lilacs or yellow daisies
forgot i was breathing
can't find the meaning
nothing is real so i forgot to feel
I'm kinda old now
i might have a meltdown
I'm still tryna get over some things
i had to make some last minute moves
for some peace of mind
i can't seem to let myself loose of this
little love of mine
i don't have much time now
maybe you could throw me a line
i can't seem to let myself loose of this
little love of mine
Track Name: Can I Luv U In My Own Way
i don't think i can explain
i feel something forced me to be this way
i tell myself its only time
but in my eyes i wish some tenderness would shine
and I've been walking without a clue
so burned out on this
and worn out on you

can i luv you in my own way
let me love you in my own way
cuz i can't stop

maybe we've lost all track of time
and you don't wanna leave neither do i
i wish we could have just one more day
cuz I'm still trying to love you in my own way
i know this isn't what we agreed to do
but youre a fool for me
and I'm a fool for you
Track Name: Song About Feeling Insane
a little pressure its good for you
in a such an empty place now
no room to move
with no direction
i lost my groove
I'm in outerspace how
im a molecule
a little better
but still confused
have i just spent my whole life
looking at shoes
i called a car cuz it felt too far
only two blocks away
a crushing pressure
pressure to improve
increase the population
they all approve
i want an office
just like you
so i don't feel like such a novice
with nothing to do
things could get better
out of the blue
if i just put my head down
if i had a clue
i forgot to vote
i was too busy telling people off
with my phone

if i had my way
i would spend all with you
in a world less crazy
where all my thoughts aren't racing
if i could escape
i would never forget you
and i cried last night
cuz everything is breaking

whats with the weather
its minus 2
and its not even september
and i have the blues
they won't hire me with tattoos on my face
but thats ok
Track Name: Can I Just Call U
not really lookin' for the cheap talk anymore
I've pressed all the buttons i can press
and i am bored
i wanna hear the way your words make sense to me
i wanna hear your voice
but i am looking at a screen

can i just call u
maybe you're not or maybe you're the one for me
between each word there are so many things to see
how did you do today
or anything at all
something we never do
but its you i'm tryna call

like water heals the wound
or a walk under the moon
if that aint coming soon
i might be calling you
i wanna feel lost in the way you make the words sound
the silence in between like the fading of a scene

can i just call u
maybe you're not or maybe you're the one for me
between each word there are so many things to see
i don't have much to say
just check if you're ok
how long have we been talkin'
its you that i am calling

my loneliness always comes home

can i just call u
maybe you're not or maybe you're the one for me
between each word there are so many things to see
I'm staying in tonight
would you pick up the phone
i guess my loneliness is always comin' home
Track Name: Can't Say Goodbye
(can't say goodbye)
its a different realm of love
(can't say goodbye)
when you're the only one I'm dreaming of

i wish we could start it all over
i wish i could see you again
i can't believe every things over
Track Name: Try Not To Hang On So Hard (demo)
baby try not to hang on so hard
it'll only get in your way
keep it all close to your heart
don't let it slip away
baby try not to hang on so hard
keep it all close to your heart
baby try not to hang on so hard
baby try not to hand on so hard
lose a little of yourself each day
let it all just come apart
and feel it drip away
baby try not to hang on so hard
keep it all close to your heart
baby try not to hang on so hard
just melt away
if you do it'll be ok
just step into the rain
and wash away the frozen part of me
baby try not to hang on so hard
if you do it'll be ok
i know you've got a broken heart
i let you slip away
Track Name: Hammer & Pulse (demo)
I'll wait
you'll come around
shake it off
feet on the ground
these days
they're so hard
spend the night
in my arms
less high
close clouds
take time
figure it out
up on a high rise
tell a story
full of lies

why do i keep wandering off
scared to be love
i'll take an oath of silence
and turn it all off
why do we even bother to talk
