Track Name: diethylamide
i held the world in my hands
and i crushed it
and i ate it

i held the light of the day
in my hands
and i threw it away

i wont miss you
when you go
i need you to know that you
dont own me anymore

i held the world in my hands
and i crushed it
Track Name: years
how much longer will you treat this like a patch job
how much longer until you see what's between us
how many more times does your heart have to skip a beat
before you resign yourself to hospital bed sheets

how much longer will you treat this like a patch job
how much longer will it take
'cause i've seen the back alleys of your home
and i've seen what happens when you're left out on your own

how much longer will you treat this like a patch job
how much longer will it take to forget this
how much longer will you treat this like a patch job
how much longer 'til you break

i've seen what happens when you're left to your devices
i know what that's like and i know i can't take it, so
how much longer will you pretend to forget us
how much longer 'til you give up

how much longer will you treat this like a patch job
how much longer 'til you break
is it really your dream to end up
in a hospital bed before the first date
so, how much longer will you pretend your life's a mistake
and how much longer 'til you listen

how much longer will you treat this like a patch
how much longer 'til you give up
how much more can you afford
how much more 'til you open your door
how much more 'til you give up
how much more 'til you break
Track Name: stuck
my hallway light burnt out again
and i like to think it's you
stuck somewhere in the layers
between earth and heavens fortitude

how would you feel if you saw me
in my solitary confinement
these bedroom walls hold me in until
i can only imagine

the world outside (don't make me go)

my bedroom lights been flickering
i guess it's just bad luck
that no matter how much i fix something
it's never truly stuck

i suppose i'm trapped somewhere between
earth and heavens fortitude
maybe i could get there if i wasn't so addicted
to my solitude

how would you feel if you saw me
in my solitary confinement
these bedroom walls hold me in until
i can only imagine

the world outside (don't make me go)

don't make me go
Track Name: i am an astronaut
you had mars in your eyes
a galaxy in your heart
and im a problematic child
tired hands and a hedonistic smile

you had a mind of hope
a nebula of wonder
and i would spend too long without
any sense of sober recollection

i keep telling myself it'll be different
different this time around
i keep telling myself i'll fix it
fix it somehow

because your skin holds constellations
i have not yet explored
and it would be a shame if
i woke up again puking
on my bathroom floor

i keep telling myself i'll get better
better somehow
pretty wont escape my grasp, not now
i've come too far

but i'm a problematic child
tired hands and a hedonistic smile
i'm a problematic child
so shut your legs it's not worth your while
i'm a problematic child
can't have a thought and not revile
i'm a problematic child

but i'll get better somehow
