Track Name: I Love You
a tidal wave just hit me but i’m feeling fine
‘cause underneath the surface is a silver line
i’m swimming with the sharks now but i’ll make it through
‘cause oh god i have you
oh god i have you
i have you


the winds are picking up now and the storm has passed
we’re drifting through existing, built the sail and mast
it’s up to us to get to where we’re going to
and oh god i love you
oh god! i love you
i love you

oh you would never break my heart or say goodbye
and if i washed ashore alone i’d prob’ly die
‘cause you’re too good to lose
and i’m too gripped to loosen all my ties

i think the storm is passing, think i see the skies
think i see an island where the current rides
untie me from the rails and i’ll untie you too
‘cause oh god i love you
oh god! i love you
i love you
Track Name: Blanket
We met, you were lost inside some endless stairs
And I was exhausted from the tour
Located the lobby and I led you there
I knew when we spoke that I’d want more

Let me be your blanket when it starts to snow
I can keep you safe and you can help me grow

Do do do do do do do do do do
Living with you has been a song
Ev’ryday dogs bark in the avenue
The duet like we do when we talk

So let me be your blanket when it starts to snow
I can keep you safe and you can help me grow
Let me be your blanket as the winter falls
We’re safe ’til springtime when we’ll shed our faults
Track Name: Rebuild Me
Don’t touch me ‘cause I’m broken
Touch me ‘cause I’m worth something more
My mind has just awoken
You are the surge it’s running for

My hopes and goals were day dreams
Please trust me, all I want is night
I’ll howl to your sweet moonbeams
’Til they’re my only light

Pet my head, fill my bowl
Take my body, take my soul
Take my crown, I’m yours to bind
Take my heart, take my mind

I’ll be your servant, be your slave
Pavlov’s dog in Plato’s cave
Please don’t go, I’m on all fours
I am yours

Take me apart and rebuild me, rebuild me
Tear me apart from my core
You’ve touched my heart and it killed me, it killed me
You’re one I’d start dying for

Please don’t go away, you can rebuild me, rebuild me
I’ll break the ties I’ve explored
Just brand my soul and you’ll fill me, you’ll fill me
I swear I’ll stop wanting more

Your words, they twist and bind me
I sweat in circles as they fly
Lost in your void you’ll find me
No matter how hard you try

Don’t test me, I have spoken
I won’t fall for your tricks or lies
I love to breathe your smoke in
That means I’m close to your eyes

I’ll be gentle, I’ll be coy
I will be your perfect toy
I won’t run and I won’t hide
Just say your wish and I’ll provide

Take my wings, take my voice
Clip my claws, cut my choice
I’ll eat the key, you lock the doors
I am yours

There’s no worth or value to discover
So won’t you write a new holy text?
You’ll break a brand new mare to ride and love her
I’m broken now, so won’t you tell me what’s next?

Please don’t go away, you can rebuild me, rebuild me
These clipped wings can never soar
Your claw pierced my heart and it killed me, it killed me
I’m broken now forever more
Track Name: Toxic
i know a place with toxic air
can i breathe it in with you?
i climb, i climb, i climb, and i climb
but never reach the view

gonna cross this rocky path
show myself i don’t need a map
keep forgetting you can’t look back
orpheus knows that

these walls these floors they are toxic
the air i breathe it is toxic
the wounds are deep and they are toxic
don’t stay with me ‘cause i am toxic
the earth it spins it’s always turning
i stumble onward never learning
this floor is sleepable when i’m sick
this house, this house, this house is toxic

i woke up craving someone else
didn’t even know who
i can’t i can’t i can’t
i never deserved you

am i climbing up or down
my visions rough and full of clouds
prepped the floor for passing out
‘cause i know i’m bad

these walls these floors they are toxic
the air i breathe it is toxic
the words i heave they are toxic
the core of me it is toxic
the earth it moves and spins around me
i am the sun and i am all heat
don’t come near me i’m always burning
the earth the earth its always turning
don’t wonder why i hit the hardest
when there’s no fight i gotta start it
i’m sending toxic radiation
my endless fucked infatuations
these walls these floors they are toxic
they follow me wherever i live
just go away like everyone did
my world is broken it is toxic

i know a place with toxic air
can i breathe it in with you?
Track Name: Big Mess
You like fame?
Guess what’s in a name
Wanna idolize posts?
Brain, fill in the rest

If dreams come true
Well then lucky you
But don’t get too stoked
I’m a big mess

Don’t start list’ning to what they said
It’s not true (x2)
Don’t go shaking me off just yet
I’ve improved (x2)
Don’t be pressured to idolize
It’s not you (x2)
Don’t go shaking me off just yet
I’ve improved (x2)

You project?
I’m your best project yet
Wanna itemize change?
Well, make a big list

It’s what I do
And now lucky you
Got a heavy long chain
Can you hold it?
Have I found bliss?

If you’re building me up then I’m starting to crumble
If you’re betting on me then I’m certain to lose
If you’re building me up then I’m starting to crumble
If you’ve heard lots of rumors they’re probably true

If you’d listened to rumors well you’d know that I’m a big mess
Track Name: Travelogue
Airplane window scratches are ruining my travelogue
Airline-brand merlot is turning flights into a needed fog

I was the one who asked you to stay
You were the one who said “oh, okay”
But I was the one who booked the rooms on the tour
And I was the one who would give you a ride
You would stay quiet, “you okay to drive?”
Then you were the one who asked me to unlock the door

First kiss, fogged glasses, and other things that lead to broken hearts
Last night felt like magic, but you think my vlog m ight need some diff’rent parts

Well, I was the one who asked you to stay
And you were the one who said “oh, okay”
But I was the one who booked the rooms on the tour
And I was the one who would give you a ride
You would stay quiet, “you okay to drive?”
I am okay, I was okay … am I okay anymore?

Stuck with stupid scratches, I lost the memory for my travelogue
Track Name: Jackie's Dream
You could have been born in a royal town
Live for your studies, not a field to plow
Where no attention’s paid
You’re just another face in the crowd

Or maybe fare better from the frigid skies
Life would be a race and you would have to fly
Allergic to the ground
Not a bruise or mud stain to be found

The grass could be greener or it could be gray
If nobody had left you at an early age
Dreaming ends at dawn
But sleeping’s nightly practice to be gone
Track Name: I Love You 2
a tidal wave just hit me but i’m feeling fine
‘cause underneath the surface is a silver line
i’m swimming with the sharks now but i’ll make it through
‘cause oh god i have you
oh god i have you
i have you


the winds are picking up now and the storm has passed
we’re drifting through existing, built the sail and mast
it’s up to us to get to where we’re going to
and oh god i love you
oh god! i love you
i love you

oh you would never break my heart or say goodbye
and if i washed ashore alone i’d prob’ly die
‘cause you’re too good to lose
and i’m too gripped to loosen all my ties

i think the storm is passing, think i see the skies
think i see an island where the current rides
untie me from the rails and i’ll untie you too
‘cause oh god i love you
oh god! i love you
i love you
